For the sake of transparency, I feel the need to disclose right away that I have both a personal and a professional interest in Diabetes and the Diabetic community.
When I was diagnosed two years ago, I knew very little about Diabetes. I’m assuming that’s true of a lot of us. So I took a workshop with a Diabetes Educator, and learned most of what I needed to know to begin managing myself on insulin. They also gave me some good resources and the desire to continue learning.
There are times when I’m exhilarated and captivated to learn more. And then there are times when I consider the many potential complications, when I read discouraging statistics or personal accounts and feel empathetic, fearful and sad to the core.
I’m aware that good blood glucose management, diet and exercise are the best ways to preventing complications; but I also became aware that there’s not much out there about healing/reversing whatever damage is done to the cells, organs and tissues by (even well-managed) Diabetes.
Anyhoo, long story less long: I looked into herbal and natural products for Diabetics and came across one that really “spoke” to me. It is an all-natural supplement for Diabetics that is designed to fight inflammation, to boost cellular regeneration (increase wound healing), to combat oxidative stress, to reverse vascular damage and to stabilize blood sugar levels.
Before I decided to try the supplement, I called the company to ask a few questions. It turned out that they were located about twenty minutes from my house, so they invited me down to tour the manufacturing site and meet the formulator of the product.
I was impressed by the sincerity of the people behind this product. Their main interest is in helping people, not in making a bucket of money. The formulator has a PhD in Chemistry from Harvard and was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Stanford. His 8-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Type-1 and it changed his life and his professional priorities.
They also wanted to know more about me. When they learned that I’m a freelance writer with online experience, they got very excited. They gave me Insul Opt to try for free with the agreement that I would lead their online marketing team to help spread the word if I felt results.
And I have felt results! After only 3 weeks, I noticed that all my old infusion sites had healed—a first in the six months I’ve been using the pump. It’s week four and I’ve noticed even more healing. Last winter I got little dry cracks on my fingers that would bleed, sting and never heal. This winter, I got my first crack, treated it with some lotion and it healed right away! I’m also seeing some better blood sugars, but it’s too soon to attribute that to Insul Opt.
The point is, I’d like all of you to try it, or at least ask me about it and learn some more! I’m delighted to have a personal and professional interest in something I feel passionate about and in a community I deeply respect.
