The Side Effects Of Metformin & How To Reverse Type-2 Diabetes

Metformin is a drug prescribed to sufferers of type-2 diabetes to help regulate their blood sugar levels. Here you’ll learn about the side effects of Metformin and how to reverse type-2 diabetes. Please note: I’m not a doctor so I cannot override a doctor’s professional opinion. I’m just sharing what I know so you can be better informed to make your own decision.

Despite being in the industry I’m in, it still blows my mind to hear of people taking this drug when type-2 diabetes can so easily be reversed by a few basic dietary shifts. It’s a prime example of how behind the medical system is. I don’t mean to put doctors down for prescribing this medication – it’s what they know. It’s how they’re trained. However, it is ridiculous to take medications for type-2 diabetes. Type-2 diabetes is a result of insulin resistance as a result of over exposure to the hormone, insulin, due to excessive carbohydrate intake. That’s pretty much it. There are a few other mechanisms that take place too, but for the most part, this is how type-2 diabetes is created in life. It used to be called adult-onset diabetes, but because children are getting it, they had to change the name. How nice. How accommodating.

In 2015, revenue for diabetes medications reached $71bn dollars. Would you like to contribute to that revenue or get healthy by changing your approach to food and lifestyle? I know which one I’d prefer. Here’s a little graph from Statista that shows revenue from pharmaceutical companies for diabetes medications:

I’ve helped a number of my private clients reverse type-2 diabetes and readers of my book, The Vitality Secret, have also reversed it. It’s not rocket science to reverse it once you understand the mechanics – once you know that it’s a result of insulin resistance and inflammation – the root of almost every chronic disease that exists.

More often than not, people who take medications never look at the side effects of them. I’d like to remind you that every drug is toxic and attacks the liver. Every drug comes with side effects. Every drug causes imbalance in the  body. Every drug causes immune system suppression. And just about every drug never addresses the root cause. Most people just trust their doctors with their health and take them blindly. I urge you not to be one of the herd. This interview with Diet Doctor And Dr Jason Fung explains what it is, beautifully:
