If you suffer from diabetes, you are familiar with the problems associated with its complications: low energy, uncontrollable blood sugar, neuropathy, bad eyesight and a host of other issues.
If you have tried insulin injections and they are not helping to address the problems with your blood sugar, it can be incredibly frustrating. Luckily, there is a new protocol designed specifically to address the problems that people have with insulin injections.
What is PIR?
Physiologic Insulin Resensitization (PIR) is an approach to treating diabetes in a unique way. Traditional diabetic treatment plans consist of injection of insulin as a drug, but this cutting-edge approach introduces insulin to the body in its true biochemical form – that of a hormone. By replicating the chemical structure and physiology of insulin as a hormone, the resistance is largely nullified.
How does PIR work?
PIR utilizes the process of “biomimicry.” A small pump is used to simulate the release of the insulin hormone in a normal healthy body. The precision of the administration of the hormone tricks the body into its own metabolic response to blood sugar.
The hormone does its job of carrying a biochemical message to the cells to begin the metabolic reactions that break down the blood sugar, rather than using insulin as an injectable drug to “balance out” the blood sugar level.
PIR therapy works to increase the sensitivity of the cells to insulin reception, boosting the efficiency with which the body converts glucose into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the mechanism for cell energy transfer and a host of other cellular processes.
Since this process more closely resembles the body’s production of insulin and its metabolic function, the problems with resistance to insulin are nullified at the receptor level.
Symptoms that can be addressed by PIR treatment:
- Diabetic neuropathy: one of the consequences of diabetes is neuropathy, or a condition affecting nerves in the body that causes sensations ranging from numbness to tingling, to shooting pain, especially in the extremities. Neuropathy can cause a host of complications, including painful swelling and weakness. Autonomic neuropathy can cause a host of other issues, including damage to organs.
- Weight gain and energy loss: diabetes can cause severe energy loss along with the pain, which can lead to a lack of exercise and a much more sedentary lifestyle. The cycle continues to deteriorate as the patient becomes less able to exercise, and health complications arise related to the weight gain, including increased cholesterol and fatty liver.
- Peripheral artery disease: diabetes can cause a narrowing of the arteries in the legs, which can lead to untreatable and inoperable damage to the extremities, often resulting in amputation when coupled with the effects of neuropathy.
Positive outcomes from PIR treatment:
When the body’s processing of blood sugar is optimized, there are many other benefits to the patient’s health, including:
- Relief from the common symptoms associated with Insulin Resistant Diabetes
- Improved mood and sleep
- Mitigation of the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
- Accelerated recovery from TIAs or strokes
- Improvement in sexual functioning
While there is no ultimate cure for diabetes, PIR treatment can drastically improve the wellbeing of those who are resistant to traditional insulin therapy, and give them more control over their lives and health.
