In terms of Tibetan medicine: in Health Through Balance by Dr. Yeshi Donden on page 190 it says Diabetes is "brought on by too much food that is salty, sweet, having cool potency, and having a heavy nature." So things like Ice Cream. (p177)Ngawang Drolma wrote:Thanks Ron. I have been excessively thirsty and I wondered why. I'll take your suggestions under consideration and talk with my primary physician more. Ironically you mentioned diabetes a lot which is what did my husband in last month. It's a really serious illness. Hopefully if I can get my system back on track I won't be at risk for any of those kinds of diseases
Same book as before says Wheat and Rye are both sweet, heavy, and cool. (p176) So bad for Diabetes, refined or not.ronnewmexico wrote:Simple carbohydrates as not only very refined wheats, things of that sort but also are equilivent..... those veggies with a high glycemic index. Fruit juices...may be for instance highglycemic as are almost all common sodas.
Tibetan docs..... hands down they know more by my take. The only occasional problem I could see is in the cultural barrier....some foods such as highly refined wheat are simply not common to their experience, but is endemic in the american diet. So I would check on that.
As I understand it, one removes all foods that harm him and eats more foods that helps him recover.ronnewmexico wrote:Does that book specify in combination with other foods or exclusive of other foods....as in only item generally eaten.
That's possible, I don't know.ronnewmexico wrote:In rural areas a diet may be quite the same thing every day. So a blanket of variance we experience may not apply to what is intended if the author of the book is addressing a rural type other environment. Peoples may by necessity and lack of monies essentially have no variance in their diet.
A bread could be all they eat for most meals, or a cereal. So that could be a specific to address. Does that apply to the current persons cultural context...maybe it does........ but I don't know.
Right. I was just saying fyi, might be interesting.ronnewmexico wrote:I am not inclined to just say this or that....will help or hinder....it all depends. Most it seems to me is.... this works for me or we must study the individual in complexity. Generally very generally we may advise is my opinion. What a person is already eating how often when and even where how old the person how varied the diet, where the person lives temperate tropical ..it quickly becomes a book of itself.
