Several years ago I came I came down with Type 2 diabetes. So I had to begin looking at altering my diet in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of the first websites that I began using was dLife.com. This particular site allowed me to learn about the various needs of the diabetic that the doctor that I was using at the time didn’t.
The site itself has a lot of information pertaining to diabetes from updates in medical technology to recipes that help maintain blood sugar levels. Being a diabetic is no fun as you all know. But one of the hardest things is finding things to eat that you will like. I, myself had been a “meat and potatoes man” for years and making the change was difficult. This site provided me with the information that I needed to change my diet. Some of the information that I gained was in the use of alternative foods that had similarities to those that I liked with a lower or no sugar content at all which is essential when trying to control diabetes.(dLife)
Another site that I frequent is heatlhherbs.com. Being a diabetic I also look at alternative remedies to maintain a healthy lifestyle without using all of the man made medicines that are normally used. One thing I remember as a child came from the Bible and that was if we eat the foods that God provided in their natural state that we would be able to live a healthy life until the day that our bodies failed from age. This site provides me with the information that I seek when it comes to natural alternatives. Over the years I have found that all of the so called pharmaceuticals we know use have some negative effect over time that causes various organs to malfunction and then we have to take another drug to counteract those side effects.

One other site that I use to find information on alternative health is www.juicing.info. When I found out that I was diabetic a friend of mine who was diabetic informed me that one of the things a diabetic needed was a large amount of fiber and to obtain the amount need you would have to eat more vegetables and fruits than one actually could ingest in a normal manner, but you could meet the required amounts by juicing. So I went to various sites and found this site to be the most informative when it came to the large number of juicers one finds on the market and this one provides information about the mechanicals as well as various recipes for juice mixes that are tasty as well as nutritious.(Juicing)
Diabetes certainly makes one look at health in a different manner and now I look at all avenues of living healthy seeing diabetes and its side effects are not what one wants to play with.
