Natural Treatment for Diabetes – Step by Step Guideline

Published on November 27, 2012

Diabetes is not the hopeless disease that most doctors would have us believe it is though it is a long losing battle if you walk the trail western medicine wants you to walk. Like all the chronic diseases facing humanity today the allopathic medical establishment does not want you or your doctor to become conscious of the real causes of diabetes and it certainly does not want you to receive treatments that will reverse or prevent diabetes from destroying your life.

This is easily seen in the conditioned resistance to understanding and appreciating magnesium as the necessary medicine—in fact the perfect medicine—for diabetics. My Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol treats diabetes pretty much the same as it does cancer. The fundamentals of both diseases are the same and this why one increases the incidence of the other.

What is Diabetes? What Causes Diabetes?

There are doctors who do cure diabetes and how do they do it? The first thing such doctors understand is that diabetes is inflammatory disease caused by a combination of factors including chemical poisoning, radiation exposure, magnesium, iodine and bicarbonate deficiencies that come together to burn down the cellular house in slow motion. Add some infectious process and the pancreas becomes exhausted and insulin is then required.

Each year, approximately 80,000-84,000 lower-limb amputations are performed due to complications from diabetes in the United States alone.[5]

Sugar excess and dehydration work powerfully to create inflammation in the body and this starts a long process that ends up with people facing major diseases. Today men, woman and children are consuming more sugar in a more corrupted form than ever before. They are poisoning themselves with the blessings of the government and many nutritionists who have no problem with a diet loaded with carbohydrates.

Dr. Mark Hyman talks about, “The current media debate about the benefits (or lack of harm) of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in our diet misses the obvious. The average American increased their consumption of HFCS (mostly from sugar-sweetened drinks and processed foods) from zero to over 60 pounds per person per year. During that time period, obesity rates have more than tripled and diabetes incidence has increased more than seven-fold. Not perhaps the only cause, but a fact that cannot be ignored.”

Dr. Hyman tells us that, “Sugar in any form causes obesity and disease when consumed in pharmacologic doses. HFCS and cane sugar are NOT biochemically identical or processed the same way by the body. HFCS contains contaminants including mercury that are not regulated or measured by the FDA. Independent medical and nutrition experts DO NOT support the use of HFCS in our diet, despite the assertions of the corn industry. HFCS is almost always a marker of poor-quality, nutrient-poor disease-creating industrial food products or food-like substances.”

Diabetes is a Complex Disease

Diabetes is one of the most complex diseases affecting the physiology of all tissues and systems simultaneously. If not controlled, diabetes can be life threatening. It is often associated with long-term complications that can affect every system and part of the body. Diabetes can, among other things, contribute to eye disorders and blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation, and nerve damage. It can affect pregnancy and has been linked to birth defects and miscarriages.

In the studies carried out in China and Japan, those who ate the most white rice were 55% more likely to develop the disease than those who ate the least.[6] Yet the medical industrial complex does not want the public to understand why white rice would so strongly provoke the onset of diabetes. White rice is low in magnesium and high in quickly digestible sugars that spike blood sugar levels. Consumption of too many simple carbohydrates leads to overall acid buildup (decreased pH of the blood and tissues) and inflammation.

Diabetics are Magnesium Deficient

A new study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition[7] from a team of Brazilian researchers has found that low levels of magnesium worsen the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, as this often results in low levels of insulin and elevated blood sugar. Brown rice is also a simple carb but at least the magnesium has not been stripped out of it! So if you must have rice, choose brown rice and at least get some magnesium.

The research from Brazil indicates that a diabetic’s ability to control blood sugar levels is closely tied to their magnesium levels, as the mineral plays an important role in insulin receptor cells. Another study published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism found that taking oral magnesium supplements helps individuals who have become insulin resistant avoid developing type 2 diabetes. These are just the latest in a long string of studies that the medical establishment and mainstream diabetes organizations continue to ignore. We know this because they continue to refuse to prescribe magnesium supplementation or treatments that can make a huge difference in a diabetic’s life.

Low serum and intracellular magnesium concentrations are associated with insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance and decreased insulin secretion.[8] ,[9] ,[10] Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity thus lowering insulin resistance. Magnesium and insulin need each other. Without magnesium, our pancreas won’t secrete enough insulin—or the insulin it secretes won’t be efficient enough—to control our blood sugar.

Insulin resistance and magnesium depletion result in a vicious cycle of worsening insulin resistance and decrease in intracellular Mg (2+), which limits the role of magnesium in vital cellular processes.[11] Magnesium is an important cofactor for enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism, so anything threatening magnesium levels threatens overall metabolism. Large epidemiologic studies in adults indicate that lower dietary magnesium and lower serum magnesium are associated with increased risk for type 2 diabetes.[12] ,[13]

Over 68% of the U.S. population is magnesium deficient, and up to 80% of type 2 diabetics are magneisum deficient since they waste more magnesium than others due to out-of-control blood sugar levels.

Children labeled “pre-diabetic” (now 41 million) are in great need of magnesium, which has been linked to preventing the development of type 2 diabetes. In a series of papers, Dr. L. M. Resnick has shown in the test tube that an increase of glucose in the fluid leads to the release and/or displacement of magnesium from the red blood cells; thus in the body, hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) will cause a total body magnesium deficiency. Improved insulin sensitivity from magnesium replacement can markedly reduce triglyceride levels.[14]

How to Control Diabetes Naturally?

Below are my primary recommendations for anyone with pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome or diabetes type 1 or 2:

  • Immediately increase your magnesium intake, preferably by using transdermal magnesium therapy with Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil. Use transdermal magnesium heavily (1-2 oz on the skin or magnesium flakes in a bath or foot bath) and daily for at least 2-3 months unless you have reduced kidney function, then precautions must be taken to prevent too much accumulation in your system.
  • Start using iodine orally to ensure your levels are up to normal, and consider using a high dose of iodine, which has been shown to reduce insulin resistance. Iodine will combat infections such as those caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses, which have been shown to provoke diabetes and cause insulin resistance or damage to the pancreas’ beta cells.
  • Avoid use of pharmaceutical antibiotics many of which have been shown to cause diabetes.
  • Use bicarbonate of soda to make your body more alkaline. Check pH daily and raise or lower the amount you use according to the previous day’s levels. Aim to keep salivary pH at 7.3-7.4. Do not take more than 7 half-teaspoons per day if you are under age 60 and do not take more than 3 half-teaspoons if you are over age 60. Use 1 lb of bicarbonate in your bath at least once a week to help detoxify environmental toxins.
  • Dietary changes are crucial for weight loss and control of the diabetic condition. You must follow a low or very low carbohydrate diet as recommended by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, or Dr. Richard Bernsteinor Walter Last, all who recommend carbohydrate intake of under 30 g/ day. Dr. Robert Young also has mastered this process and it is very well laid out for diabetics in his book The pH Miracle for Diabetes: The Revolutionary Diet Plan for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics.
  • Seeds are rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals antioxidant action. Seeds from a nutritional point of view are real giants and help to prevent, treat and reverse diabetes. Soul Rain contains antioxidant equivalent of 8-10 servings of fruit and 8-10 servings of vegetables.

  • You must add a good quality spirulina to your diet. The many benefits of spirulina to diabetes have been shown in research studies and the list is growing. Spirulina is a superfood and is one that has the highest amount of protein. Three grams of a good quality spirulina has the same amount of phytonutrients as 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. Diabetics must take spirulina in the amount of at least 2 g/ day and it is preferred diabetics take a medical dose of 10 g/ day, which will help to maintain blood sugar levels, will provide adequate nutrition and amino acids, will assist in weight loss, will lower cholesterol, and will actively prevent complications of diabetes. I recommend using Rejuvenate Plus, which has spirulina and other nutrients.
  • Inflammation plays a key role in a set of disorders that include type II diabetes, obesity, and heart disease—collectively called the metabolic syndrome. Cannabinoids have been shown to effectively reduce inflammation and may be used where it can be legally obtained. One source of CBD that is legal throughout the USA and Internationally in 2012 can be obtained from Green Garden Gold. Green Garden Golden are appropriate for diabetics; the capsules can be used for pain and inflammation and the creams for any skin condition.
  • Other supplements recommended for diabetics include alpha-lipoic acid for treatment of peripheral neuropathy,[15] vitamin C, adequate vitamin D3 from the sun or from a supplement, benfotiamine, chromium, Gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, fenugreek, ginseng and gamma-linoleic acid, which is also available in adequate amounts in spirulina.
  • Vitamin D3 and sunlight are also important for all diabetics.

Diabetic Epidemic Rising Dramatically

The number of new cases of diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, has risen dramatically in the last 15 years across the country, especially in some of the southern states. The nation’s diabetes problem is getting worse, and the biggest jump over 15 years was in Oklahoma, according to a new federal report. The diabetes rate in Oklahoma more than tripled, and Kentucky, Georgia and Alabama also saw dramatic increases since 1995, the study showed.

The disease exploded in the United States in the last 50 years, with the vast majority from obesity-related type 2 diabetes. In 1958, fewer than 1 in 100 Americans had been diagnosed with diabetes. In 2010, it was about 1 in 14.

In the United States, nearly 13% of adults age 20 and older have diabetes, but 40% of them have not been diagnosed, as per epidemiologists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), whose study includes newly available data from an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).[1] Diabetes is particularly common in the elderly: nearly one-third of those age 65 and older have the disease. An additional 30% of adults have pre-diabetes, a condition marked by elevated blood sugar that is still not in the diabetic range.[2]

1 out of 3 Americans now alive will have the diagnosis before they die.- Dr. Mary Vernon

The story that doctors, medical officials and mainstream medical associations put out is that diabetes is a disease in which the body has trouble processing sugar. This does not quite cover the fact that the most common forms of sugar are poisonous and become more so the more sugar one consumes. Diabetes is a precursor to heart disease[3] and cancer,[4] it’s a harbinger of death without equal.

    Excellent list of nutrients that most people don’t get enough of, although you left out omega 3 fish oil. The balance (ratio) of omega 3 fatty acids to omega 6 fatty acids is also very important and is way out in the modern diet. We eat far to much omega 6 oil which are high in most grains and not nearly enough omega 3 oil from fish and a MINORITY of special plants & grains. Too much Omega 6 cancels out the omega 3 and causes a highly inflammatory environment in the human body. The easy way to fix this without needing to look at the right omega oil ratio’s through an in depth analysis is simply to double, or triple the amount of fish we eat. To every person reading this right now, how many servings of fish have you eaten in the last 30 days ? (It should be at least 8 ! – 2 per week, but more is better.) Omega 3 fish oil kills cancer cells – google this with the words “science daily” for proof. Omega 3 also helps with arthritis joint pain and good brain and heart health protecting against strokes and heart attacks and even Alzheimer’s

    “It is not in man that walketh to direct his steps”. The truth of this simple assertion by Jeremiah, writing as he was moved by the Holy Spirit, is evident all around us, and we have no reason to believe that things will ever change whilst man remains in control of this earth. We see an inexorably-rising tide of seemingly endless destructive forces which promise to overwhelm each one of us, no matter how enlightened we might be as to the real foundations for health, as partially spelled out above by Dr Sircus. But for every one person like him, there are hundreds if not thousands who never give these issues a moment’s thought, unless they need to have a limb amputated, or a gastric band surgically inserted to reduce their obesity. And then they direct their steps to the doctors, in whom they foolishly and blindly place their trust, despite the overwhelming evidence that those individuals are for the most part just as enslaved and hypnotised by a corporate profit-driven and ultimately wicked ethos as they are themselves. The masses know the price of everything, but the value of nothing, and in a democracy, which we have been taught is the best of all political systems, these are the people who hold all the cards as to our future societal direction.
    So what to do? There is little any of us can do, although this will be seen as a defeatist viewpoint by many, who continually seek to reform or transform a system which has got us to where we are today despite 6000 years of earlier efforts to make things better. All our energies are spent in trying to stave off the disasters which constantly threaten us. In today’s world, just one of these potential disasters, eg the one lurking at Fukushima, can be the final apocalyptic card in this long game we have played. Using a chess playing analogy, we are in the endgame.
    Jesus Christ is our Creator, and just as He was amongst us 2000 years ago, so He will be amongst us again, and that, very soon. A thousand years is as a single day in God’s vision; we have had the six days He granted us to prove that we could make it without Him. We have not made it, and we are incapable of making it.
    Christ preached the Kingdom of God; a time when righteousness will reign upon the earth. This is an unfashionable word, but it is the only word we need to hear.
    “But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am the Lord, which exerciseth lovingkindness, judgement, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, sayeth the Lord”.
    Even so, come, Lord Jesus. We need you now, we really need you, and this time, we need you forever.

    DIABETES

    There are good reasons to believe our current diet is totally responsable for a level of diabetes which must go down in future generations as a catastrophe to exceed any health crisis ever endured by humans.

    Dr Sircus looks at some obvious causes but with this just one of many modern illnesses totally out of control it must be time or past time to experiment with dubious technologies.

    GMO has again and again been found to destroy all our organs given time and hence must also be a contributory factor.

    It seems authority has the ability sometimes to monitor excessive illness but is powerless to halt it.

    Years ago it was easy to avoid most toxic exposures. Today this is increasingly difficult and for the nuclear pollution impossible except to avoid hot spots.

    As a person now retired for many many years I can remember easily the time when many illnesses including diabetes were almost unknown to the ordinary non-medical person.

    From knowing no-one with many serious illnesses I am now passing to the conclusion that I know of no-one in perfect health.

    And just who apart from a very few pioneers like Dr Sircus seems to care a squiff about such catastrophe but the entire medical industry goes bananas when one person gets a vaccine preventable illness.

    Do they ever consider that 1 in a 1 000 adverse effects compares to 1 adverse effect in 50 000 000 a few generations ago.

    We must conclude the medical industry has a financial interest in our ill health that makes them blind to causes.
