Attitude

In this section I gather the posts I’ve writen about the topic of attitude towards diabetes or any illness in general.

Today I’ll touch on something that everyone knows should do, but few put into practice: exercise. In particular, this time I write for type 2 diabetics, who are increasingly suffering the consequences of this disease, knowing that the cure for diabetes is in their hands, or rather, in their mouths and their legs. Anyone who has doubts about the judgments of “incurable” and “life-long disease” offered by insensitive doctors when they tell us that we have diabetes, may have noticed that type 2 diabetes cure is possible. And the two pillars to sustain the cure naturally are starting a healthy diet (to cure the disease, instead of keeping it) and physical exercise / sport. It is crystal clear: allopathic doctors are telling us, natural therapists recommend it to us, and any blog or website related to diabetes also suggests it.

I mention this because it seems that for now I’ll have to manage my health without one of them to help cure my diabetes, at least partially. As I said on a past post, I suffered a muscle strain in the quadriceps (actually it was broken) playing soccer. After having visited 2 times a physiotherapist and having received intensive massages that helped a lot, I thought I thought I would be able to do sport again soon. Yesterday morning, giving baby food to my son, I ducked and my qudriceps stretched again hurting a lot. I noticed that it will be a while until I can play sports again (well, at least I can go for a walk) It seems to me that […]
