Obesity Causes Diabetes? No, and here is why
There are a lot of articles out that are stating that obesity causes diabetes. Obesity and diabetes are associated. They tend to go hand in hand. That does not mean one causes the other.
When we talk about cause, we have to ask; what function in the body is present when diabetes is absent. The answer is that there are a number of organs and organ systems that have to cooperate in order to absorb nutrients and disperse them to the right place at the right time.
The brain, nervous system, hypothalamus, thyroid, pancreas, adrenals, liver etc work together to maintain homeostasis or balance in the body.
When the sum total function of those organs and organ systems is maintained, we have health and absence of physiological adaptations and breakdowns such as diabetes and obesity..
The cause of diabetes therefore is the lifestyle that causes a disruption, fatigue and breakdown of normal function.
We have to start looking at the body as an ecosystem driven by information. The physical body, the cells and the tissue is secondary. It is only a result of adaptations to our environment with its toxins, stresses and real and perceived dangers.
Until we understand that the source of all disease is lifestyle and perception, which translates into chemical structural and emotional stress, and start addressing problems at the root cause, we will always struggle in vain, trying to change effects, getting partial temporary solutions, but never truly finding resolution, health and peace.
