The other friend, P is my class mate. She wears two or three lays clothes during summer and her hands are cold all the time. She told me that her feet are cold all the time as well.
Because of her very bad PMS, once she asked me how Chinese medicine helps people with PMS. I did give her some ideas, but it is so hard to find some herbs here in Sweden. She did want to try those herbs to help her relieve PMS because all the other ways she could find did not work.
We often talk a lot during lunch time. I saw her eat fruit as lunch nearly every day. One day, one of our classmates took some home baked biscuits for us to have a taste. P said she could not eat because she has high blood sugar. I told her that her stomach system is cold, which is why she has cold hands and feet all the time and high blood sugar as well.
She stared at me just like I was drunk.
Anyhow, I asked her to do a little test. The test is to put same amount of sugar in two cups of water. The difference of these two cups of water is the temperature. One cup is with cold water that she often drinks and the temperature of the other cup of water is 36 degree, body temperature. She can stir these two cups of water and see in which one the sugar melts quickly.
A few days later, I was surprised to see her drink warm water. She told me that she remembered in her culture in older time, people used to drink warm water as well. Just with the fluency of western, people began to drink cold. After hearing what I suggested, she did try to drink warm and eat warm. Then she kept on going to toilet and she began to understand what I said about body energy and throwing waste and so on. About the little test, she told her husband that I had said she has a cold stomach. Her husband laughed at that since he never heard a concept so called cold stomach. When she explained to him the test, he thought it is very convincing.
It takes a long time for anyone to develop into diabetes. First, your body energy is getting lower and lower. Then symptoms of diabetes begin to show up. In the beginning, blood sugar is high. In the later stage, complications appear.
One of the complications of diabetes is that wound in legs is hard to heal. You do not feel much of this open wound because body energy could not go there at all. Like paralyzed people, they do not have feeling in the part that is paralyzed even though you hit that area. It is the same reason.
It takes long time from the stage that you do not feel much in certain area of your body to the stage that you do not feel anything at all. It is a long process and this process is up to our body energy.
Cold food and drink cost more body energy to warm up first so that they can be digested, absorbed. Each part of this process needs body energy to do it and each part of this process could have problem.
No matter what problem it could be, the reduced body energy is the key issue for you to have diabetes, furthermore other health concerns.
