Ten Poems to Change Your Life by Roger Housden

By 2004, one in four North Americans over the age of 45 will be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (90% of all diabetes in North America is Type 2). In communities at higher risk, this statistic is even more frightening. Female hormonal fluctuations often cause blood sugar and insulin levels to vary more widely in women than in men. As a result, the complications faced by women with diabetes can be more insidious. Dr. M. Sara Rosenthal explains the range of complications associated with diabetes in the female body, focusing sharply on stopping them before they start -- naturally. Type 2 diabetes is in itself not life threatening, but the complications that can develop from failing to manage the disease are. This book concentrates mainly on the complications of diabetes in women and presents strategies to prevent or treat the complications naturally -- through diet, vitamin and mineral supplements, herbs, exercise, movement, and alternative styles of healing. Complications of diabetes include everything from heart attacks, strokes, diabetic neuropathy (which can lead to the loss of nerve function from head to toe and, eventually, to amputation), blindness or low vision, dental complications, kidney problems, and sexual dysfunction. To combat these problems, Dr. Rosenthal also provides strategies for Type 2 diabetic women, from blood sugar management, to reducing damage to kidneys, to staying naturally sexy. Each of the chapters contains alternative approaches to dealing with a specific complication, including sections on What to Eat (food and supplements), How to Move (exercises and body work), and Flower Power (herbs and aromatherapy).
