Diabetics know that in order to control this disease, it requires consistent efforts. Eating healthy, exercising regularly and monitoring blood sugar levels are all important aspects in order to prevent serious complications or even death. Diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease. Complications can have a devastating impact on someone’s health as the disease progresses, often resulting in blindness, amputation and lengthy dialysis treatments.
Diabetes is caused primarily by dysfunction of the pancreas and is characterized by impaired carbohydrate metabolism due to inadequate insulin action or secretion. It has become an epidemic in North America. It is increasing in alarming rates much faster than expected. The World Health Organization predicted an increase of only 39% from 2000 to 2030. However, recent results show that nearly one in 10 people have the disease today. As people become more obese through diets high in fat and calories and indulging in a more sedentary lifestyle in front of the TV or computer screen, diabetes will continue to become a major health concern.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been treating diabetes through acupuncture for thousands of years. The earliest known source of acupuncture information originated in China in the second century BC. Early European reports came from Jesuit missionaries in 16th and 17th centuries. In the United States, accounts of acupuncture began in medical literature in the mid-1800’s. Treating diabetes through acupuncture is, therefore, not new.
A revolutionary treatment, recently introduced in China, is based on the same principles as acupuncture. There are 12 main meridians throughout the body, known as qi (pronounced chee). Each meridian has an access point on the surface of the skin. By stimulating these points with acupuncture needles performed by a certified specialist, TCM is able to produce healing results in a relatively short time. Acupuncture points have been defined and standardized by the World Health Organization.
A new product was developed in China that simulates acupuncture, without actually penetrating the skin. The product has been selling in China for approximately 6 years with amazing results. An independent medical laboratory conducted tests on over 100,000 patients and reports a success rate of 93% in blood sugar reduction.
The KB-100 Diabetes Therapy Instrument works by emitting a low voltage, high energy impulse which is composed of light, magnetics and an electrical charge. By placing the impulse on the specific acupuncture point on the sole of the foot, the energy travels through the meridian channel and impacts the corresponding insulin receptors. The treatment only takes 3 minutes per day in your own home. It is safe, easy to operate and has no adverse effects on skin tissue. There is only a slight tingling sensation, which can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the impulse strength to suit your comfort level.
Not only can this new alternative medicine reduce blood sugar levels, it also has a positive effect on other complications caused by diabetes. Complications such as insomnia, nerve damage resulting in loss of feeling, tissue damage and constipation can also be treated with the same device.Diabetic peripheral nerve damage must be carefully monitored. Because of the loss of feeling, injuries can occur which will result in ulcers that do not heal and cannot be treated with medicine. The ulcer grows resulting in amputation of the foot. The KB-100 Diabetes Therapy Instrument is able to restore feeling and also has positive results on the ulcer gradually over time.
