The Hidden Leading Cause of High Fatality Rate over COVID-19: High Blood Sugar

By: Margaret W. Lavigne 

 

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are linked to a higher risk of COVID-19-related in-hospital death. One-third of coronavirus-related deaths in hospitals in England are individuals with diabetes. Analyses from Italy, China, the United States, and the United Kingdom suggest that people with diabetes have an increased risk of developing severe symptoms of COVID-19. (Reference: Medical News Today). 

 

For those with high blood sugar levels or low body temperature, their life can be in danger when they get infected with any viruses or bacteria. People are not unaware of the danger of high blood sugar, diabetes or slow blood circulation. When the blood circulation slows down, the body delivers nutrients to wounds at a slow speed, resulting in slow wound healing. In addition, diabetes potentially causes nerve damage, making wounds-healing more difficult.

 

Diabetes and Muscles
The muscles play an incredible role in regulating blood sugar levels. There’s a direct connection between high blood sugar and loss of muscle mass.

 

The muscular system is made up of around 650 muscles, which accounts for around half of the weight of our body. Our muscular system controls the movements of organs, such as the bladder and intestines.

 

High Sugar Diet Sabotage Your Immune System

People underestimate the adverse effects of excessive sugar intake and habitual binge eating on health. Avoid some foods which have surprisingly high sugar content during The COVID-19 pandemic, including canned food, various dressings, bread and white toast, if you have any chronic illnesses or suffer from chronic fatigue. In Taiwan, many patients who are addicted to fruits are diagnosed with diabetes or other health problems. Limit your amount of fruits which have high sugar content, such as pineapple, grapes, and banana, to keep yourself in good health condition. 

 

Pre-diabetes

Pre-diabetes increases the risk of heart attack or even stroke. According to the National Institutes of Health of the United States, Type 2 diabetes accounts for up to 95% percent of diabetes cases and most of them know nothing about their illness. People with diabetes are more likely to suffer from chronic fatigue and irritability or mood swings. People with high blood sugar levels are more likely to have belly fat, dry mouth, blurred vision and frequent urination.

Complications of Diabetes 

Diabetes potentially leads to severe complications, including visual impairment, loss of sight, kidney problems, nerve damage and even amputation. There’s a strong connection between depression and diabetes. People with diabetes are more likely to experience depression and vice versa. Debates is reversible by making diet changes. Avoid binge eating is necessary. 

 

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), around half of people with diabetes experience nerve damage. In other words, high blood sugar might lead to nerve damage, which may lead to incontinence or difficulty of urination, irregular heartbeats or even heart failure.

 

Some Foods Have Surprisingly High Sugar Content 

Indeed, excessive intake of fruits is one of the leading causes of diabetes.  Aside from sugary drinks, some foods are surprisingly high in sugar due to added “hidden sugars.” Dietitian Dr. Sarah Schenker says”If people want healthier food, they need to accept it might look and taste a bit different.” For instance, a third of an average-sized jar, roughly 150g, contains over 13g of sugar.

 

Canned food, various dressing and sauces are often high in sugar. Generally, a tomato-based pasta sauce is packed with sugar by adding some sugar to make it taste less acidic. 

 

#Bread
In the average slice of processed bread, sugar content varies. Nevertheless, sugar is added in the baking process. For instance, several slices of white bread might contain 34g sugar that one slice of white bread might contain 8g sugar.

 

Diabetes and mortality rates of COVID-19

People are not aware of the fact that high sugar diet highly sabotages our immune system.  That’s why patients with diabetes proved to have higher fatality rate when they are being attacked by COVID-19. To fight against COVID-19 and prevent your body from chronic inflammation, minimizing sugar intake in your daily diet is necessary. By doing so, it helps boost your immune system.

For those who suffer from diabetes and various chronic illnesses, moderate amount of sugar-free matcha tea might save your life or help you defeat COVID-19 in a more bearable and effective way.

Diabetes, both type 1 and 2, result in dysfunction of immune response. Thus, patients with diabetes are more susceptible to infections with low healing ability. Chronic inflammation is a key factor for numerous chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and dementia. 

Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes 

Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes may start at any age and the leading cause of Type 1 diabetes remains unknown. The body makes little or no insulin. Type 1 diabetes most often occurs in children and young adults. We need insulin to survive. For people whose body fails to produce insulin, they need to inject insulin. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder. High blood sugar potentially causes problems all over the body, which might damage blood vessels and nerves and harm the eyes, kidneys, and heart.

 

Type 2 Diabetes(”insulin resistance”): Type 2 Diabetes accounts for roughly 90% of diabetic cases. Type 2 Diabetes usually occurs to the elder or those who are over-weighted. 

Studies have shown spikes in sugar intake highly suppress our immune system. With excessive sugar in the body, the body’s ability to ward off disease is highly weakened.

 

Boost Your Immune System: Minimize Sugar Intake

People are not aware of the danger of excessive sugar intake to our brain and immunity, which increases the risk of cognitive decline and diabetes. Excessive sugar intake highly affect our hormonal, metabolic, and immunologic processes. For instance, refined sugar reduces how white blood cells perform and increase inflammatory marker with a reduced capability to fight infection. The detrimental effect of excessive sugar intake is cumulative. Sugary, processed foods also deplete nutrients from other foods.

A high percentage of Americans are addicted to sugar. Based on the survey from the US government, average American consumes 152 pounds of sugar and about 133 pounds of flour annually. Studies found that sugar might be more addictive than cocaine. Sugar intake in the U.S. has been declining, but the masses still consume too much sugar on a daily basis.

Sugar Addiction and Depression 

Sugar addiction is associated with the brain’s reward center. It’s worth noting that the negative effects of sugar on the brain follow after the initial dopamine release. Excessive sugar intake potentially triggers depressive symptoms.

 

High Sugar Diet and Inflammation
High sugar diet is one of the common factors contributing to chronic inflammation.People with chronic inflammation proved to have higher risk of diabetes, depression, and dementia.

 

People with diets rich in refined sugar proved to have a higher risk of chronic inflammation. Limit sugar intake does lead to lower inflammatory markers in the blood.

 

Common symptoms of chronic inflammation

  • depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
  • body pain
  • constant fatigue and insomnia
  • constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, and other digestive issues
  • weight gain
  • frequent infections

Negative emotions, such as suppressed anger and depression, also lead to chronic inflammation.

 

 

Unstable Blood Sugar & Brain Fog

Blood sugar that swings too low or too high potentially cause brain fog. Unstable blood sugar, either too low or too high, fails to offer energy neurons needed and causes brain fog. Low circulation deprives the brain of oxygen and nutrients, causing brain fog. Factors that cause low circulation include blood sugar imbalances.

 

Symptoms of high blood sugar (insulin resistance) include physical fatigue after meals, constant hunger, frequent urination, insomnia, and belly fat, emotional weakness, irritability, mood swings, chronic fatigue, brain fog and forgetfulness. Research shows large amounts of sugar keep stress hormone chronically elevated and ultimately increase levels of visceral fat.

 

Be aware of chronic inflammation in the gut. Communication between the gut and the brain is intense. Bad gut health effects might lead to symptoms of brain fog. Leaky gut means the lining of the intestine becomes overly porous, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and other harmful compounds to enter into the bloodstream.

 

Do you have cold feet? Cold feet shows that your brain is not having enough oxygen due to poor body circulation.

 

Solution/Advice 

  1. Avoid sugary items and chronic overeating.
  2. sugar-free matcha tea with sugar-free soy milk / green tea/black tea
  3. turmeric/ curcumin
  4.  food rich in Vitamin E
  5. sweating=detox
  6. Take time to deal with your mental wounds and shake off negative emotions once and for all.

As discrimination against the infected people rises, the affected people are more likely to avoid seeking health care. Crucially, the government needs help from the infected people to track down everyone with whom they have been in contact.

 

The wave of discrimination against East Asians occurs since the outbreak of COVID-19. Historically, xenophobia and discrimination are omnipresent. Both xenophobia and discrimination are highly linked to pride and a sense of superiority. Pride is the capital sin among the seven deadly sins. In psychiatry and psychology, xenophobia is classified under Anxiety Disorders. As to the causes of xenophobia, it might be related to competition, anger and survival. Misinformation, coupled with the fear, anger and desperation might provoke xenophobia. 

 

People might connect the infectious disease with China and then extend the connection to East Asians. As for me, I ponder over the connection between God’s wrath and natural disasters. I would like to make a bold assumption that religious persecution in China might trigger God’s wrath. China’s Communist party intensified religious persecution since 2018. Churches were being closed, pastors were jailed and scriptures were converted into inspirational quotes of Xi Jinping. The local authorities removed crosses from churches, and underage children and teenagers are not permitted to attend religious activities.

The epidemic of the coronavirus is transforming into hostility against China, its people or even people of Chinese descent. The hostility toward East Asian people has surfaced, which also exposed deep-seated xenophobia. Washington Post reporter John Pomfret writes, “ A rumor circulated among the children that all Asian kids have the coronavirus and should be quarantined.”  Since the coronavirus outbreak, Stories of discrimination against Asians have been reported on any number of social media sites.  For instance, pedestrians have crossed the street to avoid Asians, or being verbally abused as “virus carriers.” People in Los Angeles and Toronto have experienced racist comments. Chinese restaurants are struggling because of widespread misconceptions about the “cleanliness” of their food. Meanwhile, American President Donald Trump has been restricting immigration for Chinese students and scholars since 2018.

#comorbidity: a patient who has two chronic diseases 

 

Disasters bring out the best and the worst in human beings. Vulnerability strengthens connections. Sense of insecurity or helplessness might teach us to be humble and less arrogant. When life becomes fragile,  people might be encouraged to reflect on the purpose of living. Due to the occurrence of coronavirus, the uncertainty of life might rise to its peak. People are more likely to seek answers from the Bible when they are emotionally vulnerable and helpless. If you believe in luck and miracles, be aware of the 7 deadly sins and practice the 7 virtues before death. In times of trouble, we have a higher chance to witness unconditional love, God’s mighty power and miracles. To love and to repent. 


Medicine is not omnipotent. The epidemic might remind us of the importance of the body’s self-healing power. A high percentage of infected persons have no symptoms at all. Boost your immune system by adjusting your lifestyle and diet. Due to the occurrence of coronavirus disease, the general public learn to show more respect to medical staff. Aside from these, people will not confuse about Thailand, Taiwan and China after the occurrence of  coronavirus disease in 2020

Living in a material world, people tend to find pleasure in binge eating or shopping spree. As social creatures, countless people are grounded at home. On the flip side, people are pushed to spend more time with family members and forced to deal with solitude to a certain extend. Solitude does promise benefits. Solitude facilitates independent thinking and personal growth.

Racism Is on the Rise Again: Stop Using the Coronavirus to Justify Violence and Persecution

Coronavirus outbreak exposed deep-seated xenophobia and racism against East Asians. 

Pride: The Capital Sin in the Bible

The 7 deadly sins are the character weaknesses of human beings. The Bible reminds us not to undermine the wickedness of pride, anger, lust, laziness, apathy, jealousy, love of money, binge eating to vanity. God wants human beings to “revere” Him so as to “shun evil” (Proverbs 14:16–22).

 

Remember, pride and apathy are included in the 7 deadly sins in the Bible. As we hold prejudice against people who do not deserve it, we commit sins in the eyes of God unconsciously. The Bible says, “If anyone of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7). Only the all-knowing God is authorized to judge people. That’s why the Bible says, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned”(Luke 6:37).

 

Those who receive God’s blessing should not be prideful for that. Pride is the capital sin in God’s eyes. God gives blessings and God will take back the blessings if we do not deserve it.

 

People undermine the sin of pride. Pride potentially leads to bias or arrogance. Apathy means a lack of compassion for others’ suffering. Vanity makes a person pursue self-interests.

 

As said in the Bible, “There is an evil which I have seen under the sun and it is prevalent among men” (Ecclesiastes 6:1). Social prejudice and discrimination are intertwined. That’s why pride is recognized as the capital sin in the Bible. Generally, pride and social prejudice lead to conflicts, persecution, bullying, discrimination and violence in the world, which paves the way for countless tragedies on earth.

 

According to the Bible, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). In Latin, ‘compati’ means “suffer with.” It might be hard to differentiate compassion, empathy and sympathy, all of which means others’ heartbreak becomes our heartbreak. People do not believe in God’s existence, God’s justice, or God’s wrath. People seek material comfort and self-interest instead.

 

The Bible says, “If it is possible…live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge…leave room for God’s wrath” for God will repay the evil deeds (Romans 12:18–19). Believe in God’s arrangement. That’s why the Bible says “Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19 ESV).

 

The righteous God abhors wickedness. Thus, God’s punishment demonstrates God’s wrath and God’s justice. The omniscience of God is assured. God is all-knowing and “God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14). Much like the leading character Truman Burbank in the film “The Truman Show,” we are living under God’s supervision. God is watching our every move. According to the Bible, God reads our minds and every spoken word will be judged by God (Matthew 12:36 NIV). Everything we have done for the lifetime will be recorded in a book. God will evaluate our performance on Judgment Day and He will determine whether we lived a life of righteousness. “[A]bout that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven” nor Jesus, but only God (Matthew 24:36).

God’s Wrath: Do not Oppress the Foreigner or the Poor

This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’ — Zechariah 7:9–10

 

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Race discrimination means when you are treated differently because of your race, color, nationality, ethnicity or national origins. President Chester A. Arthur signed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 that banned the immigration of Chinese laborers to the US for 10 years. The purpose of the act was to “ assuage prevalent concerns about maintaining white ‘racial purity.’”

  2. ‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.” Leviticus 19:33-34

Wuhan Coronavirus: Recovery Cases and Infection Control

India, Nigeria, Japan, and the United States have recently instituted highly visible temperature checks on passengers at the airports. But feverish travelers might mask their condition by using fever-reducing drugs. Thus, the government should prohibit everyone to take fever-reducing drugs during the period.

Studies found that general bleach or alcohol disinfection can effectively kill the virus. Bleach is a strong and effective disinfectant, which is effective in killing bacteria, fungi and viruses, including the influenza virus. Also, it is recommended to use dry cleaning hands frequently to lower the risks.

 

Furniture and kitchens should be sanitized with 1: 100 diluted bleach (500 ppm). Bathroom and toilet surfaces should be sanitized with 1:10 diluted bleach (5000 ppm) at least once a day.

 

Dr. Huang Limin: The biggest lesson that we learned during SARS is “indirect infection is far more dangerous than direct infection.” He claims that the mainstream public is being alert to patients or sick persons, but the presence of viruses in the environment is omnipresent and difficult to detect.

 

The major difference between detergents and sanitizers is that a sanitizer kills 99.9% of pathogenic bacteria. What’s the difference between sanitizer, detergent and disinfectant? A detergent removes dirt, whereas a sanitizer kills pathogenic bacteria. Disinfectants kill a wider range of microorganisms than sanitizers.

 

The most effective concentration of isopropyl alcohol l (IPA) for disinfection is 70%. Nevertheless, Isopropyl alcohol concentrations over 91% coagulate proteins immediately and its effectiveness for disinfection gets lower.

Coronavirus Is Known for its Rapid Mutation: Rife of Atypical symptoms and Asymptomatic Infected Cases

Taiwanese professor Zhang Nanxuan pointed out that the coronavirus is not easy to heal, and it may damage the lungs and cause the lungs to lose self-healing function. Further, infected patients might suffer from symptoms such as pulmonary fibrosis, osteonecrosis or osteoporosis after recovery. Zhang Nanxun pointed out that when the infected cases rise, the number of deaths toll will rise simultaneously. What he concerns is that the recovery speed of coronavirus is time-consuming.

According to Dr. Huang Limin of National Taiwan University Hospital, virus testing found that the SARS virus was present in the emergency room. Door handles, toilets, and water dispensers are rife with SARS viruses.  He emphasized that most viruses were found in the medical staff’s lounge.

 

Huang Limin, a pediatric infectious disease physician at the National Taiwan University Hospital, claims that coronavirus has undergone several mutations and toxicity adjustments. Huang Limin, director of the Taiwan Infectious Diseases Medical Association of the SARS virus strain, pointing out “SARS was not very” smart ” It was too toxic. It killed the master and died itself. It will not be infected after 2 days of fever, and the infection efficiency is not very high …. but 2019-nCoV is not that toxic, but it has a better chance of surviving in the human body. “

 

Dr. Limin Huang further adds that “this virus has survived in the wild for at least several months, constantly mutating, parasitizing to intermediate masters, and then transmitting it to humans. The symptoms of 2019-nCoV are mild in the beginning phrase, which makes it uneasy to be noticed. 

 

Fight Against Chronic Inflammation

Many chronic illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, have been highly linked to chronic inflammation. Excessive sugar has to take the blame. To lead a healthy life,  minimize sugar intake, including limiting the amount of bread, cakes and cookies. 

 

Avoid canned food and sweetened dressings, such as ketchup.  Canned foods are usually sweetened and canned food may contain BPA in which has been associated with type 2 diabetes. For instance, the ingredient list on a bottle of regular Heinz ketchup contains high-fructose corn syrup and corn syrup.

 

Avoid Common Causes of Inflammation As Follows:

#Avoid negative emotions, including suppressed anger,  sorrow, helplessness, fear and depression.

Take time to deal with your mental wounds and negative emotions once and for all. It’s useless to run away from negative emotions. We hold bad memories because we have the desire to accuse something, something or the wicked. Only when we let go of the desire to accuse, we can secure inner peace. 

Believe in God’s justice. To lead a peaceful blessed life, “keep no record of the wrongs” and “leave room for God’s wrath” (1 Peter 4: 8; Romans 12:18-19). People have limited knowledge of the Bible. There will be trials for the righteous and the chosen ones before God rewards them the admission tickets to heaven (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27,1 Peter 1:3-9). Thus, never stigmatize any life challenges. It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” for those who remain righteous, tender and humble in any circumstances (Roman 8: 28). 

 

TCM theory: Boost Your Self-Healing Power 

Generally speaking, anger hurts our liver, overthinking hurts our spleen, sorrow and depression hurt our lungs, and chronic anxiety and fear damage our kidneys.

 

# 1: According to TCM theory, the three chief causes of illness: pessimism, overeating, and fear.

 

#2:  “If a doctor does not tell the patient the causes of the illness. There must be a relapse.” According to TCM theory, the best medicine is more about healing the soul of the patient. 

 

# 3: Depression, chronic stress and sorrow can highly undermine a person’s blood circulation and make a person terribly tired. If you suffer from chronic fatigue, you might have to figure out whether there is something or someone that irritates you or bothers you persistently.  People have a great chance to ignore their negative emotions by shifting their attention elsewhere.

 

#4: According to the Bible, a joyful heart is the best medicine. 

 

# 5: Common symptoms of lung disease are cough, shortness of breath. Common diseases such as common flu, headache, neck tightness, cold hands, cold feet are closely related to lung deficiency. 

 

# 6: Sorrow does not necessarily make a person cry into tears. Chances are, sorrow has been buried deep in the heart or has been suppressed without consciousness.

 

 

Theaflavin

Medical research from Chiayi Chang Gung memorial hospital found that Taiwan’s indigenous tea is effective to inhibit  proliferation of coronavirus. The researcher found that native plants are effective to counter against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It was found that Theaflavin can be helpful to inhibit the proliferation of coronavirus, especially fermented tea such as black tea. It remains unsure about how many doses will make it work. 

 

Theaflavin controls viral proliferation and inhibits its activity, which may inhibit the proliferation of COVID-19. It would never be a bad thing to have a moderate amount of black tea on a daily basis.

Negative Emotion and Chronic Illness

Why people seize on terrible memories for years or even decades? Bad memories torture our soul and body. We keep bad memories out of the desire to accuse those who hurt us. [1]That’s why we fail to let go of anger, pain and sorrow. 

 

When we let go of the desire to accuse anything and anyone, we will be truly free and healthy again. As our soul suffers, our brain and body suffer too. As we feel emotionally painful or stressful, the defense mode of the nervous system starts overworking and the endocrine system starts releasing stress hormones, and our body will be exhausted and get sick.

 

I would say, humility is the prerequisite to the practice of gratitude. God says, “Learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart” (Matthew 11:28-3). What I learn from life, people can’t be permanently happy and grateful unless they possess a humble heart.

The Bible says, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip” (Deuteronomy 32:35). The Bible warns us not to take revenge on ourselves. It says, “The Lord will judge His people.” (Hebrews 10:30) “Wait on the LORD”, and He will do the justice for the righteous ones (Proverbs 20:22).[2] Thus, “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Carefully consider what is right” (Romans 12:17)., “no one should ever violate or exploit his brother in this regard, because the Lord will avenge all such acts” (1 Thessalonians 4:6). The Bible says, God is “merciful and gracious, slow to anger” and that’s why God is waiting patiently for people to come to “repentance” (Psalm 103:8; 2 Peter 3:8-9). The righteous compassionate God takes “no pleasure in the death of anyone” and He does not want “anyone to perish” (Luke 15:10, Luke 15:7 2, Peter 3:8-9). 

 

To heal our body and chronic illness, we have to heal our hearts first. Our body has strong self-healing power. Nevertheless, pessimistic thinking and suppressed anger take away our vigor and strength without awareness. Suppressed negative emotions, such as sorrow and depression, leaves us powerless. By burring anger and pain, we lose hope and enthusiasm in life and we lose the ability to laugh and be healthy again.

 

God witness your pain. God will do justice. So, stop carrying the pain out of self-love. Remember, anger is one of the seven deadly sins. Anger hinders us from performing our best self.

 

According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), all negative emotions are the initial internal cause of physical illness, including suppressed sorrow, anger and pessimistic thinking. Many people bury their sorrow and anger in their subconscious mind. Those who suppress their sorrow and anger so hard are more likely to indulge in binge eating and emotional eating. Also, studies found that those who suppress their negative emotions have a great chance to suffer from insomnia, liver disease or brain fog.

 

According to TCM, the effectiveness of the medicine is not as good as a balanced diet. And a balanced diet is not as powerful as positive thinking. The worst doctor treats the illness. And the best doctor treats the soul of the patients. If the doctor does not tell the patient the cause of the illness, the relapse of the illness is assured. In other words, if we never uproot the negative or even revengeful thoughts from our brains, the sickness will relapse.

 

According to TCM, anger, stress and depression are harmful to our liver. Overthinking is detrimental to our spleen, and sorrow hurts our lungs. Fear and persistent anxiety hurt our kidney. Significantly, the health condition of the liver and kidney is highly linked. According to TCM, food in white are good for lung, food in green is good for the liver and food in black is good for kidney. Food in red is good for the heart and food in yellow is good for the spleen. Significantly, limiting sugar intake is necessary to keep good health.

 

According to TCM, pessimist thinking roots in fear and self-denial. Emotional eating roots in unshakable depression, anxiety disorder or emptiness of the mind. Junk food addiction shows people’s desire to relive painful feelings inside by indulgence of food pleasure. Our emotion greatly affects our blood circulation. Thus, those who suffer from chronic depression are more likely to experience chronic fatigue.

 

As we store bad memories in our brains, we torture our brains without awareness. Many people embrace mild chronic depression without knowing it. Their hearts are rife with hostile negative thoughts persistently. Their souls are weathering. They deny the possibility of a good life or a better life. They devalue their ability to secure the life they want for the next decades.

 

Being optimistic is the best thing we can do for ourselves. In Chinese, an old saying claims that good moods guarantee good health. Optimist thinking assures the body’s self-healing power. Studies confirmed that negative emotions cause the body’s inflammatory index to rise and long-term chronic inflammation of the body is one of the chief causes leading to cancer. Additionally, positive emotion proved to help lower inflammation index.

 

Chronic depression often caused by the feeling of loss, grievance, anger, coupled with the loss of hope for a better future. Chronic depression can potentially impair a person’s cognitive functions.[3] Simply put, depression impacts the central control center of our nervous system. Certain brain regions in people with major depression are smaller and less dense those without depression. The circuit in the brain begins to shrink and the growth factors that stimulate the brain decreases, even the cells shrink and lose its vitality. A US study proves that depression and stress guarantee the loss of brain volume, causing the brain to shrink. They found chronic stress and depression cause the loss of brain mass in the prefrontal cortex. Since the prefrontal cortex is responsible for executive function, a person’s ability of decision making and personality expression would be highly decreased due to major depression or severe stress. [4]

 

The continuous attachment to bad memories is detrimental to our mind and body. That’s why the Bible says “Keep no record of the wrongs” (1 Peter 4:8). [5]The record of disturbing memories in our brain potentially wreak our nervous system and immune system, which may ultimately lead to depression and overproduction of stress hormones. The hypnotherapist, Danna Pycher asserts that when a person experiences something stressful, stress signals are sent to the brain and our body transformed into defense mode. Next, the endocrine system releases adrenaline and cortisol. If the situation persists, our immune system ultimately deteriorates.

 

Significantly, the self-healing mechanism is situated in the subconsciousness. Compared to doctors’ medicine, the patients’ state of mind is the key decider to the recovery rate of any sort of illness. Our body has self-healing power and medicine is merely utilized to assist inducing the body’s self-healing power. Pycher asserts that trauma does not need to be anything overwhelming like the loss of a loved one. It can be anything that affects the patient in a significantly negative way. Are you satisfied with your life so far? Are you troubled by past events repeatedly?

 

What’s the cost of hanging on to the anger persistently? By being angry, we end up saying and doing things that present “the worst possibility of ourselves. The greatest enemy in our life is ourselves. Let go of anger and discipline yourself out of self-love and self-respect. Make friends with rationality and sufficient sleep does help to upgrade your rationality. 

 

Be Aware of the Cost of Negative Emotions 

Angry consumes your energy, attention, time, health and productivity. Every word and every action has consequences. Be practical about your anger. Anger damages our ability to make correct judgments and it generally leads to bad decisions. The decisions we make while we are being irrational usually causes huge regrets. Anger leaves a bad mark on our souls.

According to a global study conducted by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), nearly half of adults with type 2 diabetes worldwide are unaware of their illness.[1] In general, people with diabetes are more likely to suffer from severe symptoms and complications when infected with COVID-19 due to their weak immune system. As type 2 diabetes starts to develop, the body suffers from chronic inflammation. When inflammation persists, chronic inflammation might lead to cell mutation and proliferation, which creates an environment that is conducive to cancer development. When the immune system fails to function properly, normal cells can mutate into cancer cells.

 

People underestimate the danger of high blood sugar. High blood sugar unleashes destructive molecules and the body’s infection-control defenses will be decreased or damaged.

 

There’s a data shows that average American eats 17 teaspoons of added sugar on a daily basis. Excessive sugar is highly linked to diabetes and heart disease. Consuming large amounts of sugar does promise an increased risk of chronic illness and chronic fatigue.

 

Taiwan’s infected cases keep the lowest fatality on a worldwide scale.  It’s worth noting that a growing number of Taiwanese tend to minimize their sugar intake and even choose low GI food diet or alkaline diet to manage their body shape and manage their health condition.

 

#Tip 1: Limit and minimize sugar intake, especially processed sugar.

For those with diabetes and for those who suffer from chronic fatigue, please limit intake of jam, toast, excessive intake of fruits, dressings and canned food. People tend to underestimate the added sugar of various dressings.

 

#Tip 2: Low-glycemic foods help control our blood sugar and boost our immune system.

As we master our blood sugar, it will be much easier for us to master our emotions. As we master our emotions, we secure a stronger immune system.

 

# Tip 3: Shake off negative emotions.

It’s a verified fact that negative emotions guarantee a higher sugar level and inflammation index. Researchers verify the fact that the more you suppress your negative emotions, the more susceptible you are to cancer indeed. Researchers from the University of Rochester and Harvard School of Public Health found that people who suppress anger have a 70% higher risk of dying from cancer. [2]

 

There’s a concrete relation between depression, chronic inflammation, and brain fog. Depression and fatigue go hand in hand because “depression affects neurotransmitters associated with alertness and the reward system,” said Don Mordecai, being a psychiatrist and the national leader for mental health and wellness at Kaiser Permanente. Again, our mental state has an impact on your energy levels. Accord ing to Mordecai, fatigue is more likely to be a possible symptom of depression.

 

Depression also takes a toll on motivation, making it physically and emotionally exhausting to carry out simple tasks, Sari Chait said, being a clinical psychologist based in Massachusetts. When you suffer from depression, your brain demands more energy to help you get through the day and the vicious cycle breeds fogginess.Our emotions and stress do highly affect our autoimmune system and inflammation index.

 

#Tip 4: Avoid sleep deprivation

#Tip 5: Food rich in Vitamin B and Calcium help fight against stress and anxiety.

#Tip 6: Sugar-free black tea or mocha tea

With added sugar, the health benefits of tea will be much decreased.

 

Taiwanese professor Zhang Nanxuan pointed out that the coronavirus is not easy to heal, and it may damage the lungs and cause the lungs to lose self-healing function. Further, infected patients might suffer from symptoms such as pulmonary fibrosis, osteonecrosis or osteoporosis after recovery. Zhang Nanxun pointed out that when the infected cases rise, the number of deaths toll will rise simultaneously. What he concerns is that the recovery speed of coronavirus is time-consuming.

 

Both Italy and New York have faced the plight of inadequate respirators and intense care beds.  Other countries should prepare in advance. Better safe than sorry. When the number of patients increases, countless family might lose their beloved ones within a limited time. When the number of confirmed cases sharply increases, the general public’s panic index will increase.  

 

Activate Your Self-Healing Power

Significantly, the self-healing mechanism is situated in the subconsciousness. Thus, be hopeful and grateful. Emotions originate from thoughts. People can’t be permanently happy unless they learn to be grateful for life. People can’t be grateful for life unless they possess a humble heart. Unhappy individuals are unsatisfied with their life by believing they deserve more.

 

#Tip 7: Sweating is the most effective way to detox our body.

 


Diabetes Cause Hunger and Fatigue

Insulin helps our body turn blood sugar into energy. The rise in glucose pushes our pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream. Our body converts the food we eat into glucose, but our cells need insulin to bring in the glucose. When glucose from the blood cannot enter the cells due to either lack of insulin or insulin resistance, your body cannot convert the food you eat into energy and blood glucose levels will remain abnormally high. Meanwhile, a lack of energy causes hunger and fatigue.

 

Diabetes Affects Our Digestive System

Poorly controlled blood sugar can lead to neuropathy, increasing the risk for issues like acid reflux (GERD), gastroparesis, and diabetes enter neuropathy. Diabetic Gastroparesis affects how the stomach moves food into the intestines and leads to symptoms such as bloating, nausea, and heartburn.

 

[1] Poorly controlled blood sugar potentially leads to blindness, neuropathy, brain fatigue, depression, irritability, etc.

[2] A University of Michigan study found that suppression of anger predicted earlier mortality in both men and women. Studies found that people experience severe emotional trauma or shock 18-24 months prior to their cancer diagnosis.

The Reasons Why China’s Coronavirus Is Spreading Rapidly 

1) The infected person might not show any symptoms at all. Thus, the infected person might keep spearing the virus to people around him/her. It’s worth noting that the virus is capable of transmission during the incubation period. The symptoms of the deadly 2019-nCoV  are overlapped with influenza. Coughing is a very common symptom among people with chronic illness. For instance, people with GERD might suffer from night coughing. Further, not anyone will seek immediate or active treatment from the hospital. Thus,  there will be some hidden cases for sure. 

 

Coronavirus is less deadly than SARS, but it’s more contagious than SARS. Human-to-human contagion has been confirmed that sneeze or touching the same handrail or doorknob may make another person catch the virus, much like the flu. (Reference )

 

2) 14 Medial workers in Wuhan’s hospitals were infected with Wuhan Coronavirus when they underwent neurosurgery for a 69-year-old patient. Instead of spreading the news to the mainstream public for the sake of prevention.  Chinese government forbade the local authority and the doctors to reveal the information to the mainstream public.  Additionally, Zhou Xianwang, the Mayor of Wuhan alleged that 5 million people had left the city before travel restrictions were imposed ahead of the Chinese New Year.

 

Besides, China plans to refurbish and re-open the Xiaotangshan Hospital on the outskirts of Beijing, which was built during the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak. Wuhan is a city with 11 million residents and its outgoing airport, railway stations and all public transport all suspend due to the outbreak of Wuhan Coronavirus. Indeed,  the death toll of infected persons keeps soaring in China.

In truth, there’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and post-traumatic growth. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins. According to the Bible, a blessed life is not a life without trails, including the righteous and the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9).God expect us to “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). When your life track differs from your original plan, don’t be scared. It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” for those who remain righteous, tender and humble in any circumstances (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), around half diabetic cases experience nerve damage. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels.There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with hyperglycaemia. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness. Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Be aware of the cost of negative emotions, such as suppressed anger and sorrow. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Every spoken word will be recorded by God. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale, because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. Inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Do not ignore negative emotions.
