Steamy Secret REVERSES Diabetes
Doctors have all sorts of advice for diabetics.
And “eat right” and “exercise” are right at the top of the list.
I’m not arguing the benefits of exercise, but what if you physically can’t?
If that’s you (or even if you just don’t want to), I’ve got GREAT news for you.
There’s a steamy secret that can give you all of the health benefits of exercise…and you’ll never lift a finger.
In fact, it’s one of the most relaxing things you could possibly do.
I often talk about the benefits of cold-water therapy. But today’s study shows the benefits of the exact opposite: a hot, relaxing bath.
No one can deny the mentally relaxing benefits of a hot bath (especially with a glass of wine and candles…just ask my wife!).
But a new study reports that a hot bath can have dramatic physical benefits for diabetics.
Past research shows that soaking in hot water enhances insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics. A more recent study had shown why.
In a study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, overweight men soaked in a hot bath (102 degrees) for one hour. They took a total of 11 baths over a two-week period.
Two important changes occurred after just ONE bath: there was a spike in nitric oxide and in inflammation.
Nitric oxide helps blood vessels to relax, leading to lower blood pressure. It also helps tissues take in glucose, which means it helps take it OUT of the bloodstream (lowering blood sugar levels).
This helps explain the decreases in fasting blood sugar.
Now let’s address the increase in inflammation. That might sound like a drawback, but I assure you it’s not.
Physical stressors (such as exercise) are known to cause an initial spike in inflammation, which is then followed by a long-term anti-inflammatory response.
In this case, the physical stressor was a hot bath. And as with exercise, it produced an initial spike in inflammation. But after two weeks of taking hot baths, overall inflammation was reduced.
And reducing you fasting blood sugar and your inflammation levels are critical if you’re diabetic.
But since blood sugar, blood pressure, and inflammation are key aspects of health for everyone (not just diabetics), taking a hot bath represents a simple, relaxing, and completely free way to boost overall health and wellbeing.
To a brighter day,

If you’re diabetic or pre-diabetic, you know there are certain foods you CAN’T have.

Because it fails to account for the protective...
