CBD and diabetes
Several years ago, I ghost wrote a book about diabetes for a doctor who specialized in treating type 2 diabetes. There are apparently many ways to manage or even reverse this disease, which has become an epidemic in our society. So much of his advice is basic commonsense knowledge: eat healthful foods, exercise and drink plenty of water.
But, that doesn’t seem to be an idea that’s caught on because diabetes is still a thing. In his book, the doctor spoke often and at length about inflammation as a big influence on insulin resistance, which in turn becomes type 2 diabetes.
So, I wondered about the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD on diabetes and whether any studies had been conducted. Well, here is what I learned.
Several studies on mice indicate that CBD could effectively suppress inflammation that can cause diabetes. Israeli scientists noted that they believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could treat this inflammation and therefore improve the body's metabolism.
In fact, according to Mark J. Rosenfeld, CEO. ISA Scientific, "Unlike insulin and other existing medications for diabetes, CBD may actually suppress, reverse and perhaps cure the disease."
Also, on a study of nonobese diabetic mice, CBD treatment significantly lowered the incidence of diabetes and reduced inflammation, inhibiting the disease. In addition according to the Israeli study, “the immune system, cell growth, sugar metabolism and heart function all also appear to prospectively benefit from CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Now, this information shouldn’t preclude a healthful diet, exercise and commonsense, but for those with diabetes, it could be a breakthrough.
So, can someone tell me why these studies aren't being done on a larger scale and in the United States? Never mind, it's a rhetorical question.
