He cured himself of Diabetes and offers to the public, information as to
how anyone may also cure themselves of this horrible disease. I had the
great luck of having a great Chemistry teacher at Old Dominion University,
and back in 1979, he taught us why the ingestion of trans-fats could lead
to all sorts of trouble. (That was THE only authentic professor I had in
my whole career at that University. He actually made Chemistry exciting!
I would not reccommend the usual pathway of "higher learning"
to anyone who is seeking to enrich their mind. I have spent over 20 years
de-programing myself, and once they get you in the fear department, well,
GOOD LUCK! Also, I studied the work of Dr. Johanna Budwig, who, as you know,
IS one of the world's leading expert on Fatty Acids. Naturally, she is politically
incorrect, and although nominated 7 times for a Nobel Prize, she will never
receive one. She is 99 years old! I know this IS a long article, but so
very helpful. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your courage, and
honesty. I am enriched from your website.
Our Deadly Diabetes Deception
by Thomas Smith
If you are an American diabetic, your physician will never tell you
that most diabetes is curable. In fact, if you even mention the cure word
around him, he will likely become upset and irrational. His medical school
training only allows him to respond to the word treatment. For him, the
cure word does not exist. Diabetes, in its modern epidemic form, is a curable
disease and has been for at least 40 years. In 2001, the most recent year
for which figures US figures are posted, 934,550 Americans died from out
of control symptoms of this disease.
Your physician will also never tell you that at one time strokes,
both ischemic and hemorrhagic, heart failure due to neuropathy as well as
both ischemic and hemorrhagic coronary events, obesity, atherosclerosis,
elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, impotence,
retinopathy, renal failure, liver failure, polycystic ovary syndrome, elevated
blood sugar, systemic candida, impaired carbohydrate metabolism, poor wound
healing, impaired fat metabolism, peripheral neuropathy as well as many
more of today’s disgraceful epidemic disorders were once well understood
to often be but symptoms of diabetes.
If you contract diabetes and depend upon orthodox medical
treatment, sooner or later you will experience one or more of its symptoms
as the disease rapidly worsens. It is now common practice to refer to these
symptoms as if they were separable independent diseases with separate unrelated
proprietary treatments provided by competing medical specialists.
It is true that many of these symptoms can and sometimes do
result from other causes; however, it is also true that this fact has been
used to disguise the causative role of diabetes and to justify expensive,
ineffective treatments for these symptoms.
Epidemic Type II Diabetes is curable. By the time you get
to the end of this article you are going to know that. You’re going
to know why it isn’t routinely being cured. And, you’re going
to know how to cure it. You are also probably going to be angry at what
a handful of greedy people have surreptitiously done to the entire orthodox
medical community and to its trusting patients.
The Diabetes Industry
Today’s diabetes industry is a massive community that
has grown step by step from its dubious origins in the early twentieth century.
In the last eighty years it has become enormously successful at shutting
out competitive voices that attempt to point out the fraud involved in modern
diabetes treatment. It has matured into a religion. And, like all religions,
it depends heavily upon the faith of the believer. So successful has it
become that it verges on blasphemy to suggest that, in most cases, the kindly
high priest with the stethoscope draped prominently around his neck is a
charlatan and a fraud. In the large majority of cases he has never cured
a single case of diabetes in his entire medical career.
The financial and political influence of this medical community
has almost totally subverted the original intent of our regulatory agencies.
They routinely approve death dealing ineffective drugs with insufficient
testing. Former commissioner of the FDA, Dr. Herbert Ley, in testimony before
a US Senate hearing, commented “People think the FDA is protecting
them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it’s
doing are as different as night and day.”
The financial and political influence of this medical community
dominates our entire medical insurance industry. Although this is beginning
to change, in America, it is still difficult to find employer group medical
insurance to cover effective alternative medical treatments. Orthodox coverage
is standard in all states. Alternative medicine is not. For example there
are only 1400 licensed naturopaths in 11 states compared to over 3.4 million
orthodox licensees in 50
states. Generally, only approved treatments from licensed credentialed
practitioners are insurable. This, in effect, neatly creates a special kind
of money that can only be spent within the orthodox medical and drug industry.
No other industry in the world has been able to manage the politics of convincing
people to accept so large a part of their pay in a form that does not allow
them to spend it on health care as they see fit. Insurance money can only
be spent within an industry that has banned the cure word from its vocabulary.
The financial and political influence of this medical community
completely controls virtually every diabetes publication in the country.
Many diabetes publications are subsidized by ads for diabetes supplies.
No diabetes editor is going to allow the truth to be printed in his magazine.
This is why the diabetic only pays about 1/4 to 1/3 of the cost of printing
the magazine he depends upon for accurate information. The rest is subsidized
by ads purchased by diabetes manufacturers with a vested commercial interest
in preventing diabetics from curing their diabetes. When looking for a magazine
that tells the truth about diabetes, look first to see if it is full of
ads for diabetes supplies.
And then there are the various associations that solicit annual
donations to find a cure for their proprietary disease. Every year they
promise a cure is just around the corner; just send more money. Some of
these very same associations have been clearly implicated in providing advice
that promotes the progress of diabetes in their trusting supporters. For
example, for years they heavily promoted exchange diets  which are in
fact scientifically worthless, as anyone who has ever tried to use them
quickly finds out. They have ridiculed the use of glycemic tables which
are actually very helpful to the diabetic. They promoted the use of margarine
as heart healthy long after it was well understood that margarine causes
diabetes and promotes heart failure.  Why everyone expects that these
tax free associations will really self destruct by eliminating their proprietary
disease and thereby destroy their only source of income is truly amazing.
If people ever wake up to the cure for diabetes that has been suppressed
for forty years, these associations will soon be out of business. But until
then, they nonetheless continue to need our support.
For forty years medical research has consistently shown, with
increasing clarity, that type II diabetes is a degenerative disease directly
caused by an engineered food supply that is focused on profit instead of
health. Although the diligent can readily glean this information from a
wealth of medical research literature, it is generally otherwise unavailable.
Certainly this information has been, and remains, largely unavailable in
the medical schools that train our retail doctors.
Prominent among the causative agents in our modern diabetes
epidemic are the engineered fats and oils sold in today’s supermarkets.
The first step to curing diabetes is to stop believing the
lie that the disease is incurable.
In 1922, three Canadian Nobel prize winners, Banting, Best
and Macleod were successful in saving the life of a fourteen year old diabetic
girl in Toronto General Hospital with injectable insulin.  Eli Lilly
was licensed to manufacture this new wonder drug and the medical community
basked in the glory of a job well done.
It wasn't until 1933 that rumors about a new rogue diabetes
surfaced. This was in a paper presented by Joslyn, Dublin and Marks and
printed in the American Journal of Medical Sciences. This paper "Studies
on Diabetes Mellitus" , discussed the emergence of a major US epidemic
of a disease which looked very much like the diabetes of the early 1920's
only it did not respond to the wonder drug, insulin. Even worse, sometimes
insulin treatment killed the patient.
This new disease became known as Insulin Resistant Diabetes
because it had the elevated blood sugar symptom of diabetes, but responded
poorly to insulin therapy. Many physicians had considerable success in treatment
of this disease by diet. A great deal was learned about the relationship
between diet and diabetes in the 1930’s and 1940’s.
Diabetes, which had a per capita incidence of 0.0028% at the
turn of the century, had by 1933, zoomed 1000% in the US to become a disease
faced by many doctors . This disease, under a variety of aliases, was
destined to go on to wreck the health of over half of the American population
and to incapacitate almost 20% by the 1990's. 
In 1950 the medical community became able to perform serum
insulin assays. This quickly revealed that the disease wasn't classical
diabetes. This new disease was characterized by sufficient, often excessive,
blood insulin levels. The problem was that the insulin was ineffective;
it did not reduce blood sugar. But, since the disease had been known as
diabetes for almost twenty years it was renamed Type II Diabetes. This was
to distinguish it from the earlier Type 1 Diabetes which was due to insufficient
insulin production by the pancreas.
Had the dietary insights of the previous 20 years dominated
the medical scene from this point and into the late 1960’s, diabetes
would have become widely recognized as curable instead of merely treatable.
Unfortunately this didn’t happen and so, in 1950, a search was launched
for another wonder drug to deal with the Type II Diabetes problem.
Cure vs Treatment
This new ideal wonder drug would be, like insulin, effective
in remitting obvious adverse symptoms of the disease, but not effective
in curing the underlying disease. Thus, it would be needed continually for
the remaining life of the patient. It would have to be patentable; that
is, it could not be a natural medication because these are non-patentable.
Like insulin, it would be highly profitable to manufacture and distribute.
Mandatory government approvals would be
required to stimulate the use by physicians as a prescription drug. Testing
required for these approvals would have to be enormously expensive to prevent
other, unapproved, medications from becoming competitive.
This is the origin of the classic medical protocol of “treating
the symptoms”. By doing this, both the drug company and the doctor
could prosper in business and the patient, while not being cured of his
disease, was sometimes temporarily relieved of some of his symptoms.
Additionally, natural medications that actually cured disease,
would have to be suppressed. The more effective they were, the more they
would need to be suppressed and their proponents jailed as quacks. After
all, it wouldn’t do to have some cheap effective natural medication
cure disease in a capital intensive monopoly market specifically designed
to treat symptoms without curing disease. Often the natural substance really
did cure disease. This is why the force of law was used to drive the natural,
often superior, medicines from the market place, to remove the cure word
from the medical vocabulary and to totally undermine the very concept of
a free marketplace in the medical business.
Now it is clear why the cure word is so vigorously suppressed
by law. The FDA has extensive Orwellian regulations that prohibit the use
of the cure word to describe any competing medicine or natural substance.
It is precisely because many natural substances do actually both cure and
prevent disease that this word has become so frightening to the drug and
orthodox medical community.
The Commercial Value of Symptoms
After this redesign of drug development policy to focus on
ameliorating symptoms rather than curing disease, it became necessary to
reinvent the way drugs were marketed. This was done in 1949 in the midst
of a major epidemic of insulin resistant diabetes.
In 1949, the US medical community reclassified the symptoms
of diabetes,  along with many other disease symptoms, into diseases
in their own right. With this reclassification as the new basis for diagnosis,
competing medical specialty groups quickly seized upon related groups of
symptoms as their own proprietary symptom set. Thus the heart specialist,
endocrinologist, allergist, kidney specialist, and many others started to
treat the symptoms for which they felt responsible. As the underlying cause
of the disease was widely ignored, all focus on actually curing anything
was completely lost. By this new focus on treating symptoms, instead of
curing disease, disease was now allowed to run rampant without any effective
check on its progress. While not a very smart idea from the patients viewpoint,
it did succeed in making the American medical community amongst the wealthiest
in the world because of the continuing high volume of repeat business that
Heart failure for example, which had previously been understood
to often be but a symptom of diabetes, now became a disease not directly
connected to diabetes. It became fashionable to think that diabetes "increased
cardio-vascular risk.” The causal role of a failed blood sugar control
system in heart failure became obscured. Consistent with the new medical
paradigm, none of the treatments offered by the heart specialist actually
cures, or is even intended to cure, their proprietary disease. For example,
the three year survival rate for bypass surgery is almost exactly the same
as if no surgery was
Today over half of the people in America suffer from one or
more symptoms of this disease. In its beginnings, it has become well known
to physicians as Type II Diabetes, Insulin Resistant Diabetes, Insulin Resistance,
Adult Onset Diabetes, or more rarely Hyperinsulinemia. According to the
American Heart Association, almost 50% of Americans suffer from one or more
symptoms of this disease. One third of our population is morbidly obese.
Half of our population is overweight. Type II Diabetes, also called Adult
Onset Diabetes, now appears routinely in six year old children
Many of our degenerative diseases can be traced to a massive
failure of our endocrine system that was well known to the physicians of
the 1930’s as Insulin Resistant Diabetes. This basic underlying disorder
is known to be a derangement of the blood sugar control system by badly
engineered fats and oils. It is exacerbated and complicated by the widespread
lack of other essential nutrition that the body needs to cope with the metabolic
consequences of these poisons.
All fats and oils are not equal. Some are healthy and beneficial;
many, commonly available in the supermarket, are poisonous. The health distinction
is not between saturated and unsaturated, as the fats and oils industry
would have us believe. Many saturated oils and fats are highly beneficial;
many unsaturated oils are highly poisonous. The important health distinction
is between natural and engineered. There exists great dishonesty in advertising
in the fats and oils industry. It is aimed at creating a market for cheap
junk oils such as soy, cottonseed and rape seed oil. With an informed and
aware public these oils would have no market at all and the US, and indeed
the world, would have far less diabetes.
Epidemiological Life style link
As early as 1901, efforts had been made to manufacture and
sell food products by the use of automated factory machinery because of
the immense potential profits that were possible. Most of the early efforts
failed because people were inherently suspicious of food that wasn't farm
fresh and because the technology was poor. As long as people were prosperous,
suspicious food products made little headway. Crisco,  the artificial
shortening, was once given away free in 2 1/2 lb cans in an unsuccessful
effort to influence the US wives to trust and buy the product in preference
Margarine was introduced and was bitterly opposed by the dairy
states. With the advent of the depression of the 1930’s, margarine,
Crisco and a host of other refined and hydrogenated products began to make
significant penetration into the US food markets. Support for dairy opposition
to margarine faded during WW II because there wasn't enough butter for both
the civilian population and the needs of the military.  At this point,
the dairy industry having lost much support, simply accepted a diluted market
share and concentrated on supplying the military.
Flax oils and fish oils, which were common in the stores and
considered a dietary staple before the American population became diseased,
have disappeared from the shelf. The last supplier of flax oil to the major
distribution chains was Archer Daniel’s Midland and they stopped producing
and supplying the product in 1950.
More recently, one of the most important of the remaining
genuinely beneficial fats was subjected to a massive media disinformation
campaign that portrayed it as a saturated fat that causes heart failure.
As a result, it has virtually disappeared from the supermarket shelves.
Thus was coconut oil removed from the food chain and replaced with soy oil,
cottonseed oil and rape seed oil.  Our parents would never have swapped
a fine healthy oil like coconut oil for these cheap junk oils. It was shortly
after this successful media blitz that the US populace lost its war on fat.
For many years coconut oil had been one of our most effective dietary weight
The history of the engineered adulteration of our once clean
food supply exactly parallels the rise of the epidemic of diabetes and hyperinsulinemia
now sweeping the US as well as much of the rest of the world.
The second step to a cure for this disease epidemic is to
stop believing the lie that our food supply is safe and nutritious.
Nature of the Disease
Diabetes is classically diagnosed as a failure of the body
to properly metabolize carbohydrates. Its defining symptom is a high blood
glucose level. Type 1 Diabetes results from insufficient insulin production
by the pancreas. Type 2 Diabetes results from ineffective insulin. In both
types, the blood glucose level remains elevated. Neither insufficient insulin
nor ineffective insulin can limit post prandial (after eating) blood sugar
to the normal range. In established cases of Type 2 Diabetes, these elevated
blood sugar levels are often preceded by and accompanied by chronically
elevated insulin levels and by serious distortions of other endocrine hormonal
The ineffective insulin is no different from effective insulin.
Its ineffectiveness lies in the failure of our cell population to respond
to it. It is not the result of any biochemical defect in the insulin itself.
Therefore, it is appropriate to note that this disease is a disease that
affects almost every cell in the seventy trillion or so cells of our body.
All of these cells are dependent upon the food that we eat for the raw materials
that they need for self repair and maintenence.
The classification of diabetes as a failure to metabolize
carbohydrates is a traditional classification that originated in the early
19th century when little was known about metabolic diseases or about metabolic
processes.  Today, with our increased knowledge of metabolic processes,
it would appear quite appropriate to define Type 2 Diabetes more fundamentally
as a failure of the body to properly metabolize fats and oils. This failure
results in a loss of
effectiveness of insulin and in the consequent failure to metabolize carbohydrates.
Unfortunately, much medical insight into this matter, except at the research
level, remains hampered by its 19th century legacy.
Thus Type II Diabetes and its early hyperinsulinemic symptoms
are whole body symptoms of this basic cellular failure to properly metabolize
glucose. Each cell of our body, for reasons which are becoming clearer,
find themselves unable to transport glucose from the blood stream to their
interior. The glucose then either remains in the blood stream, is stored
as body fat or as glycogen, or is otherwise disposed of in urine.
It appears that when insulin binds to a cell membrane receptor,
it initiates a complex cascade of biochemical reactions inside the cell.
This causes a class of glucose transporters known as GLUT 4 molecules to
leave their parking area inside the cell and travel to the inside surface
of the plasma cell membrane. When in the membrane, they migrate to special
areas of the membrane called caveolae areas.  There, by another series
of biochemical reactions, they identify and hook up with glucose molecules
and transport them into the interior of the cell by a process called endocytosis.
Within the cells interior, this glucose is then burned as fuel by the mitochondria
to produce energy to power cellular activity.
Thus these GLUT 4 transporters lower glucose in the blood
stream by transporting it out of the bloodstream into all of our bodily
Many of the molecules involved in these glucose and insulin
mediated pathways are lipids, that is they are fatty acids. A healthy plasma
cell membrane, now known to be an active player in the glucose scenario,
contains a complement of cis type w=3 unsaturated fatty acids.  This
makes the membrane relatively fluid and slippery. When these cis fatty acids
are chronically unavailable because of our diet, trans fatty acids and short
and medium chain saturated fatty acids are substituted in the cell membrane.
These substitutions make the cellular membrane stiffer and more sticky and
inhibit the glucose transport mechanism. 
Thus, in the absence of sufficient cis omega 3 fatty acids
in our diet, these fatty acid substitutions take place, the mobility of
the GLUT 4 transporters is diminished, the interior biochemistry of the
cell is changed and glucose remains elevated in the bloodstream.
Elsewhere in the body, the pancreas secretes excess insulin,
the liver manufactures fat from the excess sugar, the adipose cells store
excess at, the body goes into a high urinary mode, insufficient cellular
energy is available for bodily activity and the entire endocrine system
becomes distorted. Eventually pancreatic failure occurs, body weight plummets
and a diabetic crisis is precipitated.
Although there remains much work to be done to fully elucidate
all of the steps in all of these pathways, this clearly marks the beginning
of a biochemical explanation for the known epidemiological relationship
between cheap engineered dietary fats and oils and the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.
Orthodox Medical Treatment
After the diagnosis of diabetes, modern orthodox medical treatment
consists of either oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin.
In 1955, oral hypoglycemic drugs were introduced. Currently
available oral hypoglycemic agents fall into five classifications according
to their biophysical mode of action.  These classes are:Biguanides Glucosidase
inhibitors Meglitinides Sulfonylureas Thiazolidinediones
The biguanides lower blood sugar in three ways. They inhibit
the normal release, by the liver, of its glucose stores, they interfere
with intestinal absorption of glucose from ingested carbohydrates and they
are said to increase peripheral uptake of glucose.
The glucosidase inhibitors are designed to inhibit the amylase
enzymes produced by our pancreas and which are essential to the digestion
of carbohydrates. The theory is that if the digestion of carbohydrates is
inhibited the blood sugar cannot be elevated.
The meglitinides are designed to stimulate the pancreas to
produce insulin in a patient that likely already has an elevated level of
insulin in their bloodstream. Only rarely does the doctor even measure insulin
levels. This drug is frequently prescribed without any knowledge of preexisting
insulin levels. The fact that elevated insulin levels are almost as damaging
as elevated glucose levels is widely ignored.
The sulfonylureas are another pancreatic stimulant class designed
to stimulate the production of insulin. Serum insulin determinations are
rarely made by the doctor before prescribing this drug. This drug is often
prescribed for type II diabetics, many of whom already have elevated ineffective
insulin. These drugs are notorious for causing hypoglycemia as a side effect.
The thiazolidinediones are famous for causing liver cancer.
One of them, Rezulin, was approved in the USA through devious political
infighting but failed to get approval in England because it was known to
cause liver cancer. The first doctor that had responsibility to approve
it at the FDA refused to do so. It was only after he was replaced by a more
compliant official that Rezulin gained approval by the FDA. It went on to
kill well over 100 diabetes patients and cripple many others before the
fight to get it off the market was finally won. Rezulin was designed to
stimulate the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream by the peripheral cells
and to inhibit the normal secretion of glucose by the liver. The politics
of why this drug ever came to market and then remained in the market for
such an unexplainable length of time with regulatory agency approval is
not clear.  As of April 2000 law suits commenced to clarify this situation
Today insulin is prescribed for both the Type I and Type II
diabetics. Injectable insulin substitutes for the insulin that the body
no longer produces. Of course, this treatment, while necessary to preserving
life for the Type I diabetic, is highly questionable when applied to the
Type II diabetic.
It is important to note that neither insulin nor any of these
oral hypoglycemic agents exert any curative action whatsoever on any type
of diabetes. None of these medical strategies are designed to normalize
the cellular uptake of glucose by the cells that need it to power their
The prognosis with this orthodox treatment is increasing disability
and early death from heart or kidney failure or the failure of some other
The third step to a cure for this disease is to become informed
and to apply an alternative methodology that is soundly based upon good
Alternative Medical Treatment
Effective alternative treatment that directly leads to a cure
is available today for some Type I and for many Type II diabetics. About
5% of the diabetic population suffers from Type I diabetes; the remaining
95% suffer from Type II diabetes. Gestational diabetes is simply ordinary
diabetes contracted by a woman who is pregnant.
For the Type I diabetic an alternative methodology for the
treatment of Type I Diabetes was the subject of intensive research in the
early 1990’s with several papers presented in the scientific journals.
This was done in modern hospitals in Madras, India and subjected to rigorous
double-blind studies to prove its efficacy. The protocol operated to
restore normal pancreatic beta cell function so the pancreas could again
produce insulin as it should. This approach was, apparently, demonstrated
to be capable of restoring pancreatic beta cell function where it had been
lost. A major complication lies in whether the antigens that originally
led to the autoimmune destruction of these beta cells have disappeared from
or remain in the body. If they remain, a cure is less likely; if they have
disappeared, the cure is more likely.
This early work in Madras India has been continued in a number
of laboratories throughout the world and much of it has been published in
If a patent search is conducted to discover research work
done on type I diabetes that never seems to make it to the marketplace,
a number of patents on herbal remedies will be found. These patents typically
make strong claims about the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells and the
restoring of them to normal function. In particular, patent number 5,886,029
entitled “Method and composition for treatment of diabetes”
claims to restore pancreatic beta cell function by regenerating the pancreatic
beta cells. This particular patent states in part:
The unique combination of components in the medicinal composition
leads to a regeneration of the pancreas cells which then start producing
insulin on their own. Since the composition restores normal pancreatic function,
treatment can be discontinued after between four and twelve months.
For reasons which, while understandable, are not at all acceptable,
this promising line of research never matured and today can be found only
in the archives of a few obscure scientific journals and in the patent office.
Since absolutely no financial incentive exists to cure type I diabetes,
this methodology is not likely to reappear any time soon and certainly not
in the American orthodox medical community.
The goal of any effective alternative program is to repair
and restore the body’s own blood sugar control mechanism. It is the
malfunctioning of this mechanism that, over time, directly causes all of
the many debilitating symptoms that make orthodox treatment so financially
rewarding for the diabetes industry. For Type II Diabetes, the steps in
the program are: 
Repair the faulty blood sugar control system. This is done
simply by substituting clean healthy beneficial fats and oils in the diet
for the pristine looking but toxic trans-isomer mix found in attractive
plastic containers on room temperature supermarket shelves. Consume only
flax oil, fish oil and occasionally cod liver oil until blood sugar starts
to stabilize. Then add back healthy oils such as butter, coconut oil, olive
oil and clean animal fat. Read labels; refuse to consume cheap junk oils
when they appear in processed food or on restaurant menus. Diabetics are
chronically short of vitamins and minerals; they need to add a good quality
broad spectrum supplement to the diet.
Control blood sugar manually during the recovery cycle. Under
medical supervision, gradually discontinue all oral hypoglycemic agents
along with any additional drugs given to counteract their side effects.
Develop natural blood sugar control by the use of glycaemic tables, by consuming
frequent small meals, by the use of fiber, by regular post prandial exercise,
and by a complete avoidance of all sugars along with the judicious use of
only non-toxic sweeteners . Avoid alcohol until blood sugar stabilizes
in the normal range. Avoid caffeine as well as other stimulants; they tend
to trigger sugar release by the liver. Keep score by using a pin prick type
glucose meter. Keep track of everything you do with a medical diary.
Restore a proper balance of healthy fats and oils when the
blood sugar controller again works Permanently remove from the diet all
cheap toxic junk fats and oils and the processed and restaurant foods that
contain them. When the blood sugar controller again starts to work correctly,
gradually introduce additional healthy foods to the diet. Test the effect
of these added foods by monitoring blood sugar levels with the pin prick
type blood sugar monitor. Be sure to include the results of these tests
in your diary also.
Continue the program until normal insulin values are also
restored after blood sugar levels begin to stabilize in the normal region.
Once blood sugar levels fall into the normal range the pancreas will gradually
stop over producing insulin. This process will typically take a little longer
and can be tested by having your physician send a sample of your blood to
a lab for a serum insulin determination. A good idea is to wait a couple
of months after blood sugar control is restored and then have your physician
check your insulin level. It’s nice to have blood sugar in the normal
range; it’s even nicer to have this accomplished without excess insulin
in the bloodstream.
Separately repair the collateral damage done by the disease.
Vascular problems caused by a chronically elevated glucose level will normally
reverse themselves without conscious effort. The effects of retinopathy
and of peripheral neuropathy, for example, will usually self repair. However
when the fine capillaries in the basement membranes of the kidneys begin
to leak due to chronic high blood glucose, the kidneys compensate by laying
down scar tissue to prevent the leakage. This scar tissue remains even after
the diabetes is cured and is the reason why the kidney damage is not believed
to self repair.
A word of warning: when retinopathy develops a temptation
will exist to have the damage repaired by laser surgery. This laser technique
stops the retinal bleeding by creating scar tissue where the leaks have
developed. This scar tissue will prevent normal healing of the fine capillaries
in the eye when the diabetes is reversed. By reversing the diabetes instead
of opting for laser surgery, there is an excellent chance that the eye will
heal completely. However if laser surgery is done, this healing will always
be complicated by the scar tissue left by the laser.
The arterial and vascular damage done by years of elevated
sugar and insulin and by the proliferation of systemic candida will slowly
reverse due to improved diet. However, it takes many years to clean out
the arteries by this form of oral chelation. Arterial damage can be reversed
much more quickly by using intravenous chelation  therapy. What would
normally take many years through diet alone, can often be done in six months
with intravenous therapy. This is reputed to be effective over 80% of the
time. For obvious reasons, don’t expect your doctor to approve of
this, particularly if he is a heart specialist.
The prognosis is usually swift recovery from the disease and
restoration of normal health and energy levels in a few months to a year
or more. The length of time that it takes to effect a cure depends upon
how long the disease was allowed to develop. For those who quickly work
to reverse the disease after early discovery, the time is usually a few
months or less. For those who have had the disease for many years, this
recovery time may lengthen to a year or more. Thus, there is good reason
to get busy reversing this disease as soon as it becomes clearly identified.
By the time you get to this point in this article, and, if
we’ve done a good job of explaining our diabetes epidemic, you should
know what causes it, what orthodox medical treatment is all about and why
diabetes has become a disgrace both in the US and world wide. Of even greater
importance, you have become acquainted with a self help program that has
demonstrated great potential to actually cure this disease.
