I am making a very important and life changing claim today backed by research studies and by the physiology of the human body. For the past two years I have been sharing my theory that there is a direct link between insulin imbalance, insulin resistance, and many hormonally- based illnesses. Insulin is a very potent “fat gain hormone.” When insulin levels are unbalanced, other hormones are also out of balance. For optimal health, the human body requires hormonal balance and equilibrium. Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate bodily functions. If your hormonal levels are skewed, your body will medically suffer. When left untreated, hormonal imbalances will get progressively worse. Insulin imbalance leads to obesity, midline fat, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, low Vitamin D, and estrogen based breast cancer! And yes, I want to be quoted on this.
People who have Metabolism B (a term for metabolic syndrome) have the genetic propensity to over-release the fat gain hormone; insulin. The pancreas over-reacts to normal rises in blood sugar that occur after consuming carbohydrate and from normal liver glycogen release. As time passes, people with uncontrolled Met B develop insulin resistance; they produce excess insulin but it progressively becomes less effective. Met B is progressive unless it is stopped. One indicator of insulin imbalance and uncontrolled Met B is a low Vitamin D level.
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone. In my experience, people are totally unaware that this fat soluble vitamin is actually a hormone. The following medical disorders have a root in hormonal imbalance and ALL are related to insulin imbalance…. low vitamin D (a steroid hormone linked to the hormone insulin )hypothyroidism (thyroxin is a hormone), PCOS (linked to imbalance of reproductive hormones and the hormone insulin), gestational diabetes (linked to reproductive hormones and the hormone insulin), breast cancer (estrogen is a hormone linked to imbalance of the hormone insulin), pancreatic cancer ( imbalanced insulin), metabolic syndrome (linked to imbalanced insulin), prediabetes and type 2 diabetes (linked to imbalanced insulin).
I am certain that most readers had no idea that the epidemics listed above have “hormonal imbalance” as a common bond and all are linked to the imbalance of insulin.
The story that fueled this article can be read at the following link: http://www.naturalnews.com/031042_breast_cancer_sunshine.html.
The big announcement of the link is that low Vitamin D is linked to breast cancer. Ironically, the facts are there….low Vitamin D is related to breast cancer…..but the dots are not properly connected. Low Vitamin D is not the cause breast cancer.
The reason people have low Vitamin D is not because of lack of sun exposure or caused by dietary deficiency. Low Vitamin D is caused by insulin imbalance. The link is not between low Vitamin D and breast cancer…the root that links low vitamin D and breast cancer is that both have insulin imbalance as a common denominator!

So…..here’s the rub and you can bet the ranch on this: Medical associations will now advise that women should take supplements of Vitamin D and increase their time in the sun to prevent breast cancer. Guess what? Five years from now you will read that this approach failed. You will read that mega doses of Vitamin D are toxic and that excess sun exposure leads to melanoma. You will be told to lay off the Vitamin D. And hundreds of thousands of women will have died in the interim.
Please, everyone, have your Vitamin D level checked as soon as possible. The simple blood test is called: 1,25 diyhxdroxy-vitamin D. If it is low (under 32 is deficient but I prefer to see that minimum level higher). If you are found to be deficient in Vitamin D, take 1000IU of Vitamin D3 and begin The Metabolism Miracle program to regulate your insulin level. In eight weeks, repeat the Vitamin D level, it will be normal…as will your insulin balance. When Vitamin D normalizes and you are living the Metabolism Miracle lifestyle, you will no longer require Vitamin D supplements as your Vitamin D level will remain normal as long as your insulin is normal.
There is the answer. Ironically, no one makes money from this…..and this might be why you will not read about it. But, you can bank on this: When you take it into your own hands to stabilize your insulin levels and control your Metabolism B, you will lose weight, decrease your cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar, increase your Vitamin D and possibly prevent breast cancer as well as all the other medical problems caused by insulin imbalance.
Will following this advice spark a marked decline in the cases of breast cancer?……I’m going out on a limb. Care to join me? Diane Kress, RD CDE
