SHOCK ! Every 20 seconds a leg or toe is amputated worldwide!
The reason: DIABETES!
I am shocked, horrified and at a loss for words. Where did we end up?
Supposedly we are so progressive; we no longer ride from Hamburg to Munich on horseback, but sit comfortably in a warm and air-conditioned car. We fly through the air in impossibly large airplanes and subsist on man-made foods. Is that what really makes us human?
But where is the human being?
Despite abundance, we live in scarcity. Civilization diseases are increasing rapidly. Type 2 diabetes is becoming a fashionable disease. 7.2% of people aged 18 to 79 have diabetes; 90% of them from diabetes type 2. 60 years ago this disease was almost unknown.
How did this massive increase come about?
- Fast food (fast food) without substances rich in vital substances
- depleted soil and therefore hardly any nutrients in our food
- Stress as the number one robber of vital substances
- lack of exercise
- Mitochondriopathy (defective mitochondria)
- Silent inflammation caused by the above factors
The drastic consequences for people and our health system!
For years I went to hospitals to do ultrasound scans. This is also the case in angiology clinics (here the focus is on the ultrasound examinations of all vessels).
The images were terrifying. Patients from young to old: lack of vascular supply to the extremities and thus insufficient blood flow. This affects the entire body and does not stop at the eyes. The vessel walls become brittle, inflamed and downright permeable.
The solution: Personal responsibility in your lifestyle!
- ENLIGHTENMENT is required from a young age, preferably in kindergarten
- PREVENTION in terms of VESSEL PROTECTION and thus REDUCTION of the so dangerous silent inflammations.
- This is where the valuable ingredients of the wild blueberry come into play
- Omega 3 , vitamin D and magnesium are also essential
It is time that we prevent these massive civilization diseases (= self-made). Only together we are strong.
Warm greetings to you and yours

There is some evidence that wild European blueberries may help with diabetes, but research in this area is still limited and more studies are needed to understand the exact effects.
Wild European blueberries are high in anthocyanins, flavonoids, and other antioxidants that may play a role in improving insulin sensitivity and glucose regulation in the body. Some studies have shown that regular intake of blueberries can increase insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar levels.
A study published in 2010 examined the effect of blueberries on insulin sensitivity in obese, non-diabetic individuals. The results showed that taking blueberry powder lowered insulin levels and improved insulin sensitivity.
Another study published in 2014 examined the effect of blueberry juice on blood sugar regulation in type 2 diabetics. The results showed that taking blueberry juice daily for eight weeks reduced blood sugar and insulin levels and improved insulin sensitivity.
While these results are promising, more studies are needed to understand the exact effects of wild European blueberries on diabetes. If you have diabetes, it is important to consult your doctor before taking any supplements or making any changes to your diet or lifestyle.
