There are two kinds of diabetes: diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus.
Seven percent of the general population suffers from diabetes mellitus. This type of diabetes can be divided into insulin-dependent (type 1 diabetes) and non insulin-dependent (type 2 diabetes). Ten percent of diabetes mellitus sufferers have type-1 diabetes while 90 percent are afflicted with type-2. Diabetic children and teenagers usually account for the type 1, which have no or little ability to manufacture the insulin hormone and this means in order to survive, suffers are totally reliant on insulin injections. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas and is needed to regulate blood sugar levels when it goes beyond the normal limit. Type 1 is believed to be due to damage to the pancreas tissues that manufacture insulin. The damage may be caused by the immune system of the patient attacking his pancreas (autoimmune attack). Because of the irreversible injury to the pancreas Cupping therapy may not be effective enough in treating type 1.
As the most common form of diabetes, Type 2 usually strikes middle age and senior patients. Unfortunately, in recent years, more and more young people seem to be getting type-2 diabetes as well. Now, you may find people in the twenties and thirties having this type of condition. Type 2 diabetes is brought about by either the resistance of the body to the effects of insulin or insulin deficiency to meet the needs of the person. The build-up of sugar in the body results in hyperglycemia (the appearance of sugar in the blood) and sugar in the urine. Symptoms include constant hunger, blurry vision, teeth loss, loss of sensation, itchy skin, aging, too much production of urine, weight loss due to the body’s utilization of body fats as an alternate energy source to sugar, and thirst. Risk factors include unhealthy eating habits (overeating, too much carbohydrates, and excessive sugar), diabetes during pregnancy, sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise, obesity, and genetics (diabetes among family members).
Type 2 diabetes may lead to long term complications like erectile dysfunction or impotence caused by inured nerves of the penis, leg amputation as a result of gangrene, diabetic neuropathy or nerve damage causing numbness or pain in the feet, diabetic amyotrophy (progressive weakness of knee extension and thigh pain), diabetic nephropathy, which is the most common cause of kidney failure necessitating dialysis, diabetic retinopathy, which is the most common cause of blindness caused by injury to the blood vessels supplying the optic nerve, cerebro-vascular accident or stroke attack, and higher risk of myocardial infarction (heart attack).
Cupping therapy can be a viable treatment option for type 2 diabetes. But due to the fact that the pancreas is situated behind the liver deep inside the viscera, the treatment has only a 30 percent rate of success. However, by performing Aggressive Cupping along with Pure Salt therapy, a higher rate of success can be attained. For type 2 diabetes, the plan of treatment may include adopting a positive mental attitude to diabetes, stress reduction techniques, consumption of pure salt (preferably a minimum 30-hr pure salt or 200 hour pure salt), daily pure salt half body bath, slow reduction of food consumption followed by fasting, and an hour of exercises once a day.
This kind of diabetes is not a common metabolic disorder and causes constant thirst in the patient and makes him produce large amounts of urine. Diabetes Insipidus is caused by a deficiency of vasopressin, an anti-diuretic hormone produced by the pituitary gland. The role of vasopressin is to regulate the re-absorption of water in the kidneys. Therefore, treatment is by dispensing vasopressin to the patient. Because the pituitary glands are situated deep inside the brain, cupping therapy in Maitland will not for this type of condition.
