The Cure For Type Ii Diabetes

The Cure For Type Ii Diabetes

If you are already on insulin, absolutely do not stop taking insulin, and do not stop measuring your glucose levels, without your doctor's permission. Surprisingly, medical researchers, such as from Medical News Today, consider Type 2 diabetes to be an immune problem whereby the immune system attacks the body's own cells. Type 2 diabetes is in the process of being redefined as an autoimmune disease rather than just a metabolic disorder, said an author of a new study published in Nature Medicine this week, the findings of which may lead to new diabetes treatments that target the immune system instead of trying to control blood sugar. … The researchers believe that insulin resistance, the hallmark of type 2 diabetes (unlike type 1 diabetes where it is the insulin-producing cells that are destroyed), is the result of B cells and other immune cells attacking the body's own tissues. This discovery is nothing new to some natural medicine researchers. Treatments that do the things necessary to build the immune system have been curing type 2 diabetes for years. Some of these treatments are “electromedicine” treatments which use gentle electrical waves to do the things necessary to rebuild the immune system. But these gentle electrical waves do not directly build the immune system, rather they remove the “root cause” of why the immune system is dysfunctional in the first place. Think of the school bully. Instead of fixing the students he beats up every week, the school might just kick the bully out of school. By doing this the school is not dealing with the “symptoms” of the bully (i.e. the injured students) they are dealing with the “root cause” of the injuries (i.e. the bully). So what is the “root cause” of why the immune system is weak? To understand th Continue reading >>

Reverse And Cure Diabetes Naturally

Reverse And Cure Diabetes Naturally

Author's Perspective: If you have spent anytime on the Internet, you have probably seen lots of books, ebooks and supplements that claim to be able to reverse and cure your diabetes naturally. And, maybe you've been burned by those claims after buying a book or ebook that was supposed to reverse your diabetes but didn't. So, why is my program any different from all the others? How do you know if my program is not going to fail you? Why should you risk your hard-earned money again? Well, first of all, you don't have to risk your money. Instead, you can try the first part of my program free of charge to see if my program works and does what it claims it can do. And, then, if you actually see your blood glucose coming down, then, you have some hard evidence that my program can work for you. And, with that evidence, you can be more confident in buying my book to implement the rest of my diabetes wellness program. But, you may be wondering why am I offering my program in this manner? What's the catch? I'm offering my program in this manner because I'm confident that my program will work for you. And, the catch is maybe I get you to buy my book because of my transparency and willingness to share what worked for me. Also, I'm an engineer and if you know anything about engineers, we love numbers, data and mathematics. As engineers, we love to prove our point by using numbers. That's who I am. That's what I know. That's what I've been doing in Corporate America for more than 25 years. I really don't know of any other way to demonstrate to you that my program will work for you. Key Steps to Reverse and Cure Type 2 Diabetes Naturally Based on the author's recovery and research, the key steps to reverse and cure your diabetes include: 1. Eat the 5 super foods, including green, leaf Continue reading >>

Is Diabetes Curable?

Is Diabetes Curable?

Caveat: I am neither a doctor nor a nutrition expert. However, I do have type 2 diabetes. I was diagnosed in August 2015 after several years of deep denial and ignoring my escalating A1C levels. My personal experience with diabetes is that with significant lifestyle changes, I have been able to manage it. But I know that if I were to stop exercising and go back to the way I used to eat, my blood sugar would go up and my health would surely deteriorate. On the day I was diagnosed, I cried for about three hours. Then I dried my tears and started doing research. I found a great TEDx talk by Dr. Sarah Hallberg on YouTube. Her message was very simple: Food is made up of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Protein raises blood sugar some. Fats don't raise it at all. Carbohydrates raise it a lot, every time you eat them. So if you eat fewer carbohydrates and more fats, your blood sugar won't go up as much. If your blood sugar doesn't go up, your diabetes is controlled. It made perfect sense to me. That day I decided to change my diet and eliminated grains, starchy vegetables, legumes, sugar, and fruit. I ate protein, non-starchy vegetables, and fat - a lot of fat. I hadn’t heard the terms “keto” or “ketogenic diet” at that point, but that’s basically what I’ve been following. Extremely low carbohydrate, moderate protein, high fat. Within three months, my A1C was down into high-normal territory. Three months after that, it was normal. And it's been coming down ever since. I lost 40+ pounds, but weight loss was never my goal. I just don’t want to suffer the long-term negative health consequences of uncontrolled diabetes. I’ve written about my battle with diabetes on my blog. Here’s a recent post: I cut out sugar and carbs to treat my type 2 diabetes, and here's Continue reading >>

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes With Natural Therapies

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes With Natural Therapies

Today’s Dietitian Vol. 14 No. 11 P. 28 Experts examine whether alternative approaches can cure the disease or at least send it into remission. John couldn’t seem to quench his thirst no matter how much water he drank. With his wife’s encouragement, he scheduled an appointment with his primary care doctor. A few days later, his doctor called him back into the office and told him, “You have severe type 2 diabetes.” Like many people who receive an unexpected diabetes diagnosis, John was frightened. He started surfing the Internet and reading as much as he could about the disease. Unfortunately, the information only left him reeling with more questions than answers. To make matters worse, his doctor prescribed medication that made him hypoglycemic. John spoke to several friends who had different health problems that had been either cured or treated by a doctor of naturopathy. He decided to schedule an appointment with the same doctor. At his first visit, the naturopathic doctor told John he’d be “off medication and free of diabetes in three months.” John left the doctor’s office with instructions to eat a low-carb diet. He’d been on a low-fat diet for years because of heart problems, but while he’d cut the fat, his meals included many highly processed foods. His new diet included “a lot of salads and healthful, organic foods.” He was given several whole food supplements that he says were “simple to mix and tasted good.” After two months under the care of the naturopath, John returned to his primary care doctor to discover that his hemoglobin A1c had dropped from 8.9% to 4.9%—a nondiabetic range. For eight months and counting, he’s been off all his diabetes medication. His last A1c reading was 5.1%. With the help of his naturopath, John seem Continue reading >>

Cinnamon For Diabetes? The Consequences Of “natural Alternatives”

Cinnamon For Diabetes? The Consequences Of “natural Alternatives”

A customer strolled up to the counter one night when I was working in a retail pharmacy: “My doctor says I have prediabetes. I don’t want to take any drugs. Do you have something natural I can use to cut my blood sugar?” I looked at him in the eye, and pointed at his sizeable midsection. “Sir, if you’re at risk for diabetes, and you don’t want to take medication, the single best thing you can do for yourself is lose some weight.” He grinned and asked, “Great – what supplement can I take to help me?” This type of discussion occurs all the time. A patient has been assessed by their physician, and informed that they have a medical problem of some sort. The patient, reluctant to accept the physician’s evaluation, heads to the pharmacy for a second opinion. In some cases, the patient may question the physician’s advice: “All my physician wants to do is prescribe drugs.” Yet there’s a disconnect when it comes to strategies for management. More often than not, non-drug approaches are rejected out-of-hand (probably because the sample I speak with have already made the decision to buy something). And in those that are leery of medical management, there’s often a willingness to consider anything that’s available without a prescription – particularly if it’s perceived as “natural.” Natural products are gentle, safe, and effective, while medicine is thought of as unnatural, harsh, and potentially dangerous. This is the appeal to nature fallacy, nothing more. Purveyors of supplements leverage the appeal to nature fallacy into the marketing strategy of choice for almost all supplements and “alternative” medicines. And it leads to bad health care decisions. Alternative medicine for diabetes is big business, because the public health burden Continue reading >>

10 Natural Substances That Could Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes

10 Natural Substances That Could Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes

Could the long-sought after cure for type 1 diabetes be as close as your kitchen cupboard? An accumulating body of scientific research appears to point in exactly that direction. One so-called 'incurable disease' that afflicts millions of people around the world is type 1 diabetes. Unlike type 2 diabetes, where the body becomes resistant to its own insulin, type 1 is characterized by the inability of the body to produce enough insulin, as the beta cells within the pancreas which are responsible for the production of insulin (and the proinsulin from which it is made) are either destroyed or seriously impaired. This can happen due to autoimmune issues, bacterial or viral infections, incompatible foods in the diet and chemical exposures (or a combination of any one or more of these factors), to name but a few major triggers. And yet, plenty of peer-reviewed and published research now indicates that plant compounds, including many found within commonly consumed foods, are capable of stimulating beta cell regeneration within the pancreas, and as a result may be potentially provide a cure – truly a four letter word, as far as the profit-based model of medicine goes, which thrives on the concept of the incurability of the disease-afflicted human body in favor of symptom management. The discovery of the beta cell regenerative potential of various food and compounds is bound to upset a burgeoning diabetes industry, with millions of dollars of public and private money continually being poured into fund-raising efforts for a future "cure"; A cure that will presumably be delivered through the prohibitively expensive pharmaceutical,vaccine or biologic (e.g. stem cells, islet cell xenotransplantation) pipeline, which by the very nature of the FDA drug approval process requires the Continue reading >>

Is There Any Natural Foodstuff Or Ayurveda Medicine That Can Cure Type 2 Diabetes?

Is There Any Natural Foodstuff Or Ayurveda Medicine That Can Cure Type 2 Diabetes?

DIABETES MELLITUS Diabetes is a very common metabolic disorder where in there will be abnormal increases in the blood glucose level. Diabetes can be caused in different age groups but commonly seen after 40 years. It is one of the fastest growing disease. WHAT IS DIABETES? It is a metabolic disorder wherein there is not enough production of insulin by pancreas or the cells become resistant to insulin (i.e cells doesn’t respond to the insulin). Diabetes is divided into 2 types : Type 1 diabetes: Will be insulin dependent since the bêta cells of pancreas does not produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes : Non insulin dependant HOW DOES DIABETES OCCUR? Insulin, the principle hormone that regulates the uptake of glucose from the blood into most cells after digesting the carbohydrates from most common food will be converted to glucose. Insulin is thus released from pancreas during high glucose level and this helps in absorbing glucose to the body cells for energy and for storage. If there is less production of insulin or cells become insulin resistant, there would not be absorption of glucose in the body nor it gets stored in the liver, thus the glucose increases in the blood stream thus increasing the blood glucose level. When there is increased level, there will be incomplete absorption of glucose in kidney and it remains in urine thus resulting in glucosuria.. According to Ayurveda, the basic element kapaha dosha increases due to increased intake of kapha predominant food, this increases fat i.e the medo dhatu and causes ama formation due to impairment in the digestives fire, where in the medo dhatu gets vitiated and increases the kleda in the body and it gets affected in the basti (urinary system) causing increases production of urine. According to ayurveda, the basic element Continue reading >>

How To Cure Diabetes Naturally

How to Cure Diabetes Naturally According to top medical doctors, nutritionists, scientists and now even the media, type 2 diabetes is a completely reversible condition. Yet millions of people all over the world are being told that diabetes is “genetic” and that they have to live with it the rest of their life. But there’s good news! This article will go over the exact steps you need to take to reverse type 2 diabetes naturally and improve type 1 diabetes. In many cases, type 2 diabetes can be reversed in less than 30 days. The difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes and differences in treatment will be address in this article. 25% of the Population Is Pre-Diabetic without realizing it. Diabetes has grown to “epidemic” proportions and the latest statistics revealed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) state that 25.8 million Americans have diabetes. Also, research from the ADA shows that 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes, which is 25 percent of the U.S. population! The cost of diabetes to our nation is a staggering $245 billion dollars a year as of 2012. That’s $176 billion in direct medical costs and another $69 billion loss in productivity. Aside from the financial costs of diabetes the more frightening findings are the side effects and the fact that diabetes is the 7th leading disease killer in America today. The most common side effects of diabetes include high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, neuropathy, Alzheimer’s and amputation. So let’s discuss what actually causes diabetes and the difference between type 1 and type 2. The Cause of Diabetes Diabetes is an illness related to elevated blood sugar levels. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the insulin-producing beta cells in the pan Continue reading >>

15 Remedies To Treat Diabetes At Home

15 Remedies To Treat Diabetes At Home

India is said to be the diabetes capital of the world. With nearly 50 million people in India suffering from diabetes, the country has a big challenge to face. First, let's know what is diabetes. The elevated sugar in the blood is called diabetes. There are two primary reasons behind diabetes - one is when our body stops producing insulin and second is when the body does not respond to insulin that is produced by the body. Insulin is broken down by the body and used as energy, which is transported to the cells. There are two types of diabetes - Type I diabetes and Type II diabetes. Let's know about them in a little detail: Type I diabetes Type I diabetes usually occurs in people who are below the age 20 and that is why it is also called as juvenile diabetes. In this type, the body becomes partially or completely unable to produce insulin. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease. In this, your immune system attacks the pancreas from where the insulin is produced, thereby making the pancreas inefficient or unable to produce insulin. Type I diabetes cannot be prevented, it can only be controlled with healthy lifestyle changes. Type II diabetes Type II diabetes is more common than Type I diabetes in India. Type II diabetes usually happens to people who are above the age of 40. This type of diabetes is caused due to insulin resistance. In this case, the pancreas produces insulin but the body is not able to respond to it properly. There can be many reasons behind type II diabetes. Some of the reasons can be being overweight, high blood pressure, having a poor diet, taking too much stress, hormone imbalance, certain medications and leading a sedentary lifestyle. Though type II diabetes can be reversed. Let's us know some natural ways by which we can treat diabetes at home: Wh Continue reading >>

Special Investigative Report: Curing Diabetes Naturally And Holistically

Special Investigative Report: Curing Diabetes Naturally And Holistically

Chronic diseases such as diabetes are becoming more prevalent. Diabetes diagnoses are increasing at a steady rate of 5% annually in the U.S., and there is no sign of either a cure or a preventative from the medical establishment. The total cost of treating diabetes was approximately $245,000,000,000.00 ($245 billion) in the United States alone for the year 2012, according to the American Diabetes Association. Until very recently, type 2 diabetes did not occur in children, so it was formerly known as "adult onset" diabetes. Now, type 2 diabetes occurs in children as young as two years old. Meanwhile, the medical establishment refuses to acknowledge that diseases could be caused by artificial foods that are manufactured by the chemical industry, its own drugs, and by overall toxicity. Therefore, the victims will continue to get younger. The average American consumes 100 to 160 pounds of toxic, inflammatory, chlorine bleached, chemically-refined sugars every year, and this is one of the primary reasons for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Additionally, a large percentage of American foods are artificial. The chemical industry has entered the kitchen, and every processed food now contains a variety of chemical compounds. Just like prescription pharmaceuticals, these foods have serious side effects, and they include all of the modern epidemics. The Big 3 chronic diseases were once rare, but they are now a routine part of modern life; thanks to the capitulation of governments, the food industry, the chemical industry, and now, the nuclear industry. The massive amount of refined sugars that we eat each year destructively inflames the pancreas, kidneys, and liver. When these organs finally become dysfunctional from such abuse, people develop a condition kno Continue reading >>

5 Natural Ways To Prevent Diabetes

5 Natural Ways To Prevent Diabetes

A few years ago, my sister discovered she had prediabetes after a routine blood test. For her, daily insulin injections and the health problems that come with diabetes were no mere abstraction. She had been giving our mother insulin shots and taking her to doctors’ appointments for years — and she did not want to travel the same path. So she began a regimen to avoid getting type 2 diabetes. She lost weight (about 10 percent of her body weight), began daily walks and exercise, and started paying close attention to her diet and caloric intake. To help keep her blood glucose level within a normal range, she also monitors her blood sugar and takes metformin, which targets the body’s insulin resistance rather than increasing insulin production. So far, she has averted full-blown diabetes and its consequences. My sister is one of 79 million Americans over the age of 20 who have been diagnosed as prediabetic. More sobering statistics, however, are these: 90 percent don’t know they’re at risk and 70 percent will go on to develop diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Even more significant is that type 2 diabetes, which accounts for 95 percent of diabetes cases, is highly preventable. Insulin is the central, underlying problem in developing diabetes. A hormone produced by the pancreas, insulin moves glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream into liver, muscle, and fat cells. Without insulin, blood glucose levels climb, leading to tissue damage and starving cells. In type 1 diabetes the pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin. In type 2 diabetes the pancreas makes plenty of insulin, but the liver, muscles, and fat cells become insulin-resistant — that is, they fail to respond to insulin. Consequences of chronically high blood sugar are accelerated agi Continue reading >>

10 Foods That Cure Diabetes

10 Foods That Cure Diabetes

Foods can control diabetes to the point where some diabetics can maintain normal blood sugar levels without medication. Although there may be a debate as to whether diet cures the condition, people diagnosed with diabetes can manage their blood glucose levels through certain foods and healthy lifestyle changes. Research has shown that some people with type 2 diabetes are able to keep their blood sugar levels out of the diabetes range through exercise and a diet that limits their calorie intake to 1,200 to 1,800 a day, according to WebMD. Even when diabetics still require medication, a proper meal plan can improve their condition significantly for a healthier life. Here are 10 foods with the nutrients to beat diabetes. SPECIAL: GMO Food: It's Worse Than We Thought . . . 1. Black, navy, pinto or kidney beans provide valuable protein without the saturated food from many protein foods. Beans are also high in fiber, magnesium and potassium. 2. Dark, green leafy vegetables are low in carbohydrates and calories, so people can eat a lot of them without fat and fullness. The American Diabetes Association recommends spinach, collards, and kale. 3. Fish with omega-3 fatty acids provide protein and fight the risk of heart disease. The ADA recommends six to nine ounces of fish a week. Diabetics should avoid breaded or fried fish and focus on grilled, broiled or baked fish. Omega-3 rich fish include salmon, tuna, sardines, herring, and mackerel. 4. Fat-free milk and yogurt avoid the fat while providing calcium as well as fortified vitamin D in many dairy products. 5. Whole grains give people a full feeling without the fat and offer nutrients. Whole grains include whole grain bread, whole grain pasta and brown rice. Refined gains lose nutrients during processing. 6. Fruits with low-gl Continue reading >>

Dog Diabetes: A Natural And Effective Alternative

Dog Diabetes: A Natural And Effective Alternative

56 Yet another human disease that also impacts dogs is diabetes. Diabetes is caused by either a lack of insulin or an insufficient response to the hormone. In a dog’s typical digestive process, the system breaks food down into components like glucose. Those components are carried to cells by pancreas-secreted insulin. When a dog doesn’t produce enough insulin or is unable to use it properly, glucose has nowhere to go. This elevates blood sugar levels, resulting in hyperglycemia and a number of associated health complications. The good news is that canine diabetes is adaptable; many diabetic dogs lead hale and hearty lives. Types of Diabetes There are two types of diabetes: Type I and Type II. Type I diabetes refers to the lack of overall insulin production and is the most common form of the disease. This happens because the pancreas fails to secrete sufficient levels of the stuff. Dogs with Type I diabetes, as you may have guessed, need insulin. Type II diabetes is more common in our feline friends and is a lack of “normal” reaction to insulin the body is already producing. Symptoms of Diabetes There are a number of symptoms of diabetes in dogs. Remember, though, that diabetes is identified through blood tests, a full medical examination and a urinalysis. Do not diagnose your own dog. Among the symptoms of diabetes in dogs are: Disproportionate thirst or a surge in consumption of water Loss of weight Increased levels of urination Fatigue Vomiting Forming of cataracts or attendant vision difficulties Skin infections Sweet-smelling or “fruity” breath Sticky urine Causes and Considerations The exact cause of diabetes in dogs is unknown. There are a number of contributing factors, including obesity and genetics, that play a role in how and if the disease develop Continue reading >>

14 Amazing Herbs That Lower Blood Sugar

14 Amazing Herbs That Lower Blood Sugar

We live in a world where prescription medicine is getting more and more expensive as well as controversial. Alternative medicine is gaining momentum and with good reason! The same is true for treatments for diabetes type 2. You have therapies that can reverse diabetes through lifestyle and diet changes, natural supplements that can help stabilize blood sugar levels, and also herbs that lower blood sugar. Not only are these alternative therapies safer, but they are also easier on your pocket, on your body and mind. Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is necessary for the body’s overall health. Erratic blood sugar levels can affect the body’s ability to function normally and even lead to complications if left unchecked. Some herbs and spices found in nature do a tremendous job of naturally lowering blood sugar levels, making them a boon for diabetics and pre-diabetics. What’s more, being nature’s multi-taskers, herbs and spices also produce overall health benefits beyond just helping balance blood sugar. We want to clarify one thing right away – not everything on our list can be classified as ‘herbs’. However, they are all from natural sources. Herbs come from the leafy and green part of the plant. Spices are parts of the plant other than the leafy bit, such as the root, stem, bulb, bark or seeds. RELATED: Decoding The Dawn Phenomenon (High Morning Blood Sugar) With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best herbs that lower blood sugar, along with a few spices thrown in, to give you a more comprehensive list. Please note that while we normally do not use animal studies to support any dietary supplement, several herbs like garlic and ginger are considered ‘food’ and so, are used traditionally by cultures across the world in their daily diet Continue reading >>

Natural Cures For Type 1 Diabetes: A Review Of Phytochemicals, Biological Actions, And Clinical Potential.

Natural Cures For Type 1 Diabetes: A Review Of Phytochemicals, Biological Actions, And Clinical Potential.

Abstract Autoimmune diseases are the third largest category of illness in the industrialized world, following cardiovascular diseases and cancers. Among them, type 1 diabetes, also named autoimmune diabetes, afflicts 10 million people worldwide. This disease is caused by autoimmunity-mediated destruction of pancreatic β-cells, leading to insulin deficiency, hyperglycemia and complications. Currently, there is no cure for type 1 diabetes. Insulin injection is the only medication; however, it accompanies serious medical complications. Current strategies to cure type 1 diabetes include immunotherapy, replacement therapy, and combination therapy. Despite recent advances in anti-diabetic strategies, no strategy is clinically successful. How to cure type 1 diabetes without undesirable side effects still remains a formidable challenge in drug research and development. Plants provide an extraordinary source of natural medicines for different diseases. Moreover, secondary metabolites of plant origin serve as an invaluable chemical library for drug discovery and current medicinal chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry. Over the past 25 years, 50% of prescription drugs have been developed from natural products and their derivatives. In this article, we review more than 20 plant compounds and extracts reported in the literature to prevent and treat type-1 diabetes. Emphasis is placed on their chemistry and biology in terms of regulation of immune cells and pancreatic β-cells. We summarize recent progress in understanding the biological actions, mechanisms and therapeutic potential of the compounds and extracts of plant origin in type 1 diabetes. New views on phytocompound-based strategies for prevention and treatment of type 1 diabetes are also discussed. Continue reading >>
