How the Corvette Analogy Explains Diabetes

Ok. I’m going to make understanding diabetes so simple that Brian Shane Bytheway and Bobby Robert can understand it. They’re all I have left of Jodi. I know, it’s like being left with Ringo and Tito.

Anyway, like this Corvette, your body has to create energy in order to go 0-60 in 2.95 seconds. It uses the same basic energy equation as your body, your fireplace, your barbecue grill, a forest fire or rocket ship–fuel + oxygen + an igniter.

The fuel source is gasoline for the Vette. A fuel pump makes sure this fuel makes it from the gas tank to the fuel line to the carburetor. In the carburetor, this fuel is mixed with oxygen. Combustion is created when the key turns the ignition switch to create a spark from the spark plugs. Minus any of the three parts of the equation, the car will not produce energy. If it starts to lose spark plug power, the 2.95 seconds goes up 5 or 6 seconds. The car can’t generate as much energy and therefore depends on coffee or Red Bulls.

In humans, fuel is produced by turning your food into the sugar “glucose”. Protein and fat can be alternative fuels but glucose is the primary fuel source. Your initial fuel tank is your muscles. Glucose is stored here in the form of a starch (many molecules of glucose linked together like a string of pearls) called “glycogen”. If this tank runs dry, you switch to your secondary tank–the liver. Your liver is a huge storage tank for glycogen. Your adrenal hormones act as a catalytic converter that allows you to produce a quick burst of “fight or flight” fuel. Your heart is your fuel pump. Your arteries are the fuel lines. Cell compartments called mitochondria are the billions of carburetors where energy creation takes place by combining glucose, oxygen and a spark plug called thyroid hormone. Subtract any one of these ingredients and you can’t create energy.

In order to get glucose inside the mitochondria you must have insulin and thyroid hormone. The number and function of mitochondria depends on thyroid hormone. Soooo, around age 27, when thyroid levels start declining, you’re not able to get sugar into the mitochondria as efficiently and your number and function of mitochondria declines.

Not being able to remove sugar from the fuel line (arteries) means that the fuel builds up. This is what causes high blood sugar levels, not being able to efficiently burn sugar. The situation is compounded by liver inflammation. Inflammation in the liver caused by the immune system response to Candida overgrowth along with Candida fermentation of glycogen causes release of even more sugar into the blood stream.

How do you reverse diabetes? First, you must stop pumping in gas. Eliminate foods that create high blood sugar by following the BALi Eating Plan. Eating this way will also reduce the Candida in your liver and therefore reduce inflammation. In addition, you must start burning fuel more efficiently. This means replacing spark plugs–thyroid hormone. The more oxygen you add, the better you burn fuel. Move your body aerobically 45 min at least 4 times/week. “Aerobically” means moving at a pace that makes it difficult to hold a conversation. Type 2 diabetes is ALWAYS REVERSIBLE.
