Type Two Diabetes is Reversible

Published on June 10, 2017

New Paradigms in Diabetic Care E-Book

Type two diabetes is curable if you ignore your doctor’s advice. 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 travel.

Like all the chronic diseases, the western 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 prevent diabetes from destroying your life.

Hard but true words to define the nature of most diabetic care. One out of three Americans now alive will have the diagnosis before they die writes Dr. Mary Vernon so it is incredibly important for us to understand what causes diabetes and what to do about it.

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 stress, chemical and heavy metal toxicity, radiation exposure, magnesium, iodine and bicarbonate deficiencies; and nutritional imbalances focused on excessive carbohydrate intake that all come together to burn down the cellular house in slow motion. Sugar excess and dehydration work to create inflammation in the body and this starts a long process that ends up with people facing major diseases including cancer.

“Monitoring of blood-sugar levels, insulin production, acid-base balance, and pancreatic bicarbonate and enzyme production before and after test exposures to potentially allergic substances reveals that the pancreas is the first organ to develop inhibited function from varied stresses, writes Dr. William Philpott and Dr. Dwight K. Kalita in their book Brain Allergies.

Dr. Lisa Landymore-Lim in her book Poisonous Prescriptions explains how many drugs used by the unsuspecting public today, are involved in the onset of impaired glucose control and diabetes. It is easy to provoke diabetes in experimental animals with heavy metals like arsenic, mercury and even fluoride. People are being poisoned with foods full of pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, food additives and mercury, just to mention a few poisons that plague just about everyone on earth.

You have the power to open the door for a better health and understanding of your body! Here is the Key

It has been noted that we are receiving through our air, water and food about a microgram of mercury a day. Sounds like very little until you calculate that a microgram contains 3,000 trillion atoms with each of them holding the potential to deactivate insulin and the receptor sites crucial to their function.

Many of us cannot process these levels of toxicity especially when we are deficient in basic minerals, which help us deal with mercury toxicity. Moreover, when we are given toxic medicines like Tylenol and antibiotics, both of which decrease the body’s ability to detoxify mercury, we have serious problems starting with autism and other serious diseases developing. Therefore, mercury toxicity is not always a question of if you were exposed to mercury. It can be a question of how well your body eliminates the mercury that comes in.

Fluoroquinolones and Mercury Poisoning

A study published by the American Chemical Society showed that mercury is capable of suppressing insulin secretion of pancreas cells through a ROS-triggered pathway. Mercury-induced oxidative stress causes pancreatic beta cell apoptosis and dysfunction.[1] If one does not understand the Hun Hordes of Mercury story one cannot truly understand diabetes. In 2006, the American Chemical Society published research that showed conclusively that Methylmercury Induces Pancreatic Cell Apoptosis and Dysfunction.[2]

Magnesium is Essential for Diabetics

Reversing insulin resistance is the most basic first step to reversing diabetes and heart disease. Low serum and intracellular magnesium concentrations are associated with insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, and decreased insulin secretion. Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity thus lowering insulin resistance. Magnesium and insulin need each other. Without magnesium, our pancreas will not secrete enough insulin–or the insulin it secretes will not be efficient enough–to control our blood sugar.

A study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition 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. A diabetic’s ability to control blood sugar levels is directly 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.

Magnesium improves insulin sensitivity thus lowering insulin resistance. Insulin resistance and magnesium depletion result in a vicious cycle of worsening insulin resistance and decrease in intracellular magnesium. In addition, magnesium is an important cofactor for enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism, so anything threatening magnesium levels threatens overall metabolism.

Over 68% of the U.S. population is magnesium deficient, and up to 80% of Type 2 diabetics are deficient since they waste more magnesium than others due to out-of-control blood sugar levels. These estimates understate the problem since the tests used to measure magnesium are blood not cellular levels of this vital mineral. People with diabetes waste more magnesium due to increased urination from elevated and fluctuating blood sugars and so need to replenish their magnesium stores constantly.

A Tufts study led by Adela Hruby[3] found that healthy people with the highest magnesium intake were 37% less likely to develop high blood sugar or excess circulating insulin, common precursors to diabetes. Among people who already had those conditions, those who consumed the most magnesium were 32% less likely to develop diabetes than those consuming the least.

Iodine and Diabetes

Doctors, who prescribe high dose iodine therapy for other diseases, such as breast cancer, are finding that iodine can lower insulin and oral anti-diabetic drug requirements in their diabetic patients. Dr. Michael Donaldson says, “Iodine stabilizes the heart rhythm, lowers serum cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and is known to make the blood thinner as well, judging by longer clotting times seen by clinicians. Iodine is not only good for the cardiovascular system, it is vital. Sufficient iodine is needed for a stable rhythmic heartbeat. Iodine attaches to insulin receptors and improves glucose metabolism. Iodine and iodine-rich foods have long been used as a treatment for hypertension and cardiovascular disease.”[1]

Bicarbonate and Diabetes

The pancreas is harmed, as are all organs, if the body becomes too acidic. Bicarbonate physiology is ignored in diabetes as much as it is in the field of oncology. The pancreas is harmed if the body is metabolically acid as it tries to maintain bicarbonates. Without sufficient bicarbonates, insulin becomes a problem. One of the reasons magnesium bicarbonate water is so powerful is that it addresses both bicarbonate and magnesium deficiencies together. Bottom line it is a one two punch to our body’s physiology when we become magnesium and bicarbonate deficient together.

When the pancreas loses the ability to produce enough bicarbonate essential for the pancreatic enzymes to function properly, undigested proteins penetrate the bloodstream inducing allergic reactions and inflammation.


A study published in the journal Diabetologia said that a diet of just 600 calories a day reverses diabetes. After one week on the diet, diabetes patients saw their blood glucose levels return to normal, indicating their diabetes had gone into remission.

Similar reversals of diabetes immediately after gastric bypass surgery. Researchers at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom are now showing that a quick resolution of diabetes, especially in its early years, is possible through diet alone though it helps enormously if we supplement with magnesium, iodine, bicarbonate and sulfur.

The patients adhered to a liquid-based diet consisting of meal replacement drinks. It also included three portions of non-starchy vegetables per day. The diet lasted for eight weeks. After seven days, the participants’ blood-glucose levels were comparable with those of people who did not have diabetes.

Eating meat can also be a cause and a cure, if you stop eating it, to diabetes. Dr. John McDougall insists, quite convincingly, that the food we were born to eat is starch. He insists correctly that you are not going to cure a diet-based disease with a pill or surgery. When you fix the food, you fix the problem.

The findings may only apply to people who have not had diabetes for a long period—the participants had diabetes for less than four years prior to the study. The point though is that liquid fasting with vegetable and fruit juices, or better yet, juices loaded with great tasting Rejuvenate with its spirulina and chlorella backbone and loads of combine organic superfoods, provides real medical miracles.

“What we’ve found is white rice is likely to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes,” said Dr. Qi Sun of the Harvard School of Public Health. In the studies carried out in China and Japan, those who ate most rice were 55% more likely to develop the disease than those who ate the least. White rice, white sugar, white bread and white pasta are white because they are stripped of their minerals (magnesium), vitamin and fiber content. These are poisonous foods because they cause magnesium deficiency.

Alpha Lipoic Acid


Alpha Lipoic Acid has several benefits for people with diabetes. Dr. Bert Berkson says, “An alarming number of adults, even adults in their 20s, suffer from a pre-diabetic state. The high-carbohydrate, high-sugar diet that is so popular in America overloads the body’s response to sugar. This has the effect of altering the body’s use of insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar levels. A lot of research has focused on ALA’s ability to stimulate the insulin response and get people back to normal blood sugar levels. I’ve seen fantastic results using ALA to reverse all stages of diabetes.” ALA also chelates mercury.

Lipoic Acid is soluble in both fat and water. It is capable of regenerating several other antioxidants back to their active states, including vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, and coenzyme Q10. ALA. It enhances glucose uptake in type 2 adult onset diabetes, inhibits formation of AGEs (advanced glycation end products). Lipoic Acid has been used to improve diabetic nerve damage and reduce pain associated with that nerve damage.

Medical Marijuana

Professor Mike Cawthorne and the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline believe that plant-based medicines might be the way to approach the treatment of diabetes. The particular plant they are studying is marijuana. Cannabis is an excellent anti-inflammatory that lacks the side effects of steroids, the NSAIDS, and the COX-2 inhibitors like Vioxx. This anti-inflammatory action may help quell the arterial inflammation common in diabetes.

Cannabidiol (CBD) arrested the onset of autoimmune diabetes in NOD mice in a 2007 study. Researchers at Hadassah University Hospital in Jerusalem in 2006 reported that injections of 5 mg per day of CBD (10-20 injections) significantly reduced the prevalence of diabetes in mice from an incidence of 86 percent in non-treated controls to an incidence of only 30 percent.

Investigators reported that CBD significantly loweres plasma levels of the pro-inflammatory cykotines (proteins), INF-gamma and TNF-alpha, and significantly reduced the severity of insulitis compared to non-treated controls.


Cinnamonas a treatment for diabetes gained plausibility in 2003, when a study from Alam Khan suggested several grams of cassia cinnamon per day could lower fasting blood glucose. Khan randomized Type 2 diabetes to 1g, 3g, or 6g of cinnamon for 40 days. All three groups improved their fasting blood glucose, and blood lipid levels.


The above is not an exhaustive list of safe and effective medical interventions that can help diabetics recover from their disease. It really is a choice. One can trust the present medical establishment and just follow doctors’ orders. However if one does that it really is like going to a gas station and the attendant puts water in your tank and gasoline in the oil reservoir. I imagine one can join with doctors in their fantasy of treatments but one will pay a high price.

If one is willing to put their back into making the changes necessary on dietary levels and uses and smart protocol, to back up their efforts, one can turn ones back on a lifetime of suffering. It pays to add to the above the process of flooding the body with hydrogen water, to add warming infrared treatments and to improve the blood profile with nasal infrared laser treatments.

    To me, “medical profession” is an oxymoron. I call it the “medical industry”.

    • bachcole

      Dear Loretta, I have been a health heretic from about 1970, although at the time I did not know that I was a health heretic. It took me a few years to realize what was going on.

      I think that 99% of all individual medical doctors mean well, but the profession as a whole is an echo chamber that strongly and even viciously enforces stupidity and shallow thinking. Although their diagnoses are pretty good, and their treatment for traumatic and acute conditions are second to none, their treatment for chronic, degenerative diseases are worse than nothing. I believe in the validity of homeopathy, but even if homeopathy were completely bogus like medical doctors stridently insist, it would be better than the MD solution for every chronic degenerative disease.

      So when someone puts an MD after their name and tries to pontificate about some treatment or preventative regarding chronic degenerative diseases, for me, they better establish their holistic credentials pretty damn quickly or else their MD is an anti-credential for me. And when an MD can breakout of the Soviet-like echo chamber and get with the holistic paradigm, they become a hero to me, first for breaking out of the reductionistic mental prison and for having all of that useful physiology, anatomy, and other useful studies from medical school.

  • bachcole

    I sit here, typing, having conquered my type 2 diabetes 90%, and after another session of extended fasting, I expect to be 100% cured of type 2 diabetes. The medical profession is flat out wrong about T2D. Their stubbornness, arrogance, and stupidity is killing thousands, nay tens of thousands of people every year, and there failure to tell patients a true understanding of T2D is killing a lot more. If you want to avoid or to cure your type 2 diabetes, get hardcore with a ketogenic diet, with no compromises; move on to that plus intermittent fasting; and then move on to that plus extended fasting. Or you can continue to trust the guys who insist that T2D is an incurable progressive disease and eventually lose a limb or two and die early of who knows what downstream disease.

        I argue against vegans on an almost daily basis. But I don’t put people down like you do. I will take a vegan any day over you.

        • stronghands 1

          re: so-called fraudsters: on LCHF diets: Chemically, carbohydrates are converted into glucose. Eat too many, and triglycerides rise, which causes arterial problems, the list goes on. Sugar also rises as blood glucose. So, just continue juggling those carbs and insulin and anti-diabetic pills, and start to compare REAL results that “go against medical science”. Medical science has it all wrong about diabetes. This ketogenic is the first thing that has worked for me in years. Never did take any meds or insulin, and don’t intend to.
          And yes, vegans do have problems. Each person’s body is different.
          And James Peters: if all you can do is put people down, then you become suspect as a shill for the medical mafia.

      • James Peters

        He is a journalist and his dishonesty is unparalleled in it’s audacity. A quick search of the literature shows how ridiculous his hypothesis was in this first place. Even Dr Hall, says his recent metabolic ward studies (PMCID: PMC4603544 & PMCID: PMC4962163) combined with another paper he wrote show the insulin-carbohydrate theory of obesity to be false.

            It’s feels good to be back.

          • bachcole

            Please eat lots and lots of carbs.

          • James Peters

            Carbs are neither the cause of type 2 diabetes or the associated hyperglycemia.

          • bachcole

            Well, then, eat up.

          • James Peters

            Why do many people buy into the lies of LCHF(raudster’s) like Jimmy Moore?? At KetoCON his team was claiming the diet helps with weight loss! In the past he was taking an antidiabetic supplement (berberine) to try and control those fasting glucose levels despite following a super low carb diet. It’s a shame people can’t see through this.

          • bachcole

            Well, gee, because it made sense to me and I tried it and it worked for
            me. But you proactively disbelieve people’s self-reports of success,
            like my teeth stopped dissolving, I dropped 40 pounds, my emotional
            disposition improved dramatically, all of my diabetic symptoms
            disappeared, etc. etc. etc., all thanks to my switching to a
            ketogenic/paleo diet. But since I know that you discount such reports
            (and I would be even more of a fool than you if I did), my
            writing this is not a message to you. It is a message to everyone else

      “get hardcore with a ketogenic diet, with no compromises; move on to that plus intermittent fasting; and then move on to that plus extended fasting”
      This is what I am doing, brought my A1C from 11.3 to 8 in 3 and 1/2 months, and my CRP is less than .5. So far so good. I could not do the Neal Barnard diet book as the glucose readings were way too high…vegan type diet…too many carbohydrates that turn into sugar. Oh, yeah: I’m also a pharmacist, still keep my license even though retired. Unfortunately, vegan diets allow for “complex carbohydrates ” like breads, and so on. I can’t do it. Have to keep my carbs less than 60 per day. The American Diabetes Association wants 60 carbs per MEAL…that’s why insulin is used, both immediate, then short acting, then long term ones…stay away from carbs of all kinds, and sugars of all kinds, carbs like white breads, pastas, . All turn into sugar. Examine the ketogenic diet. Several of my friends have gone in that direction, and have lowered their medication requirements. I am not going to use the term “cured” for me, as I think I will always have to watch what I eat, and stay away from the Standard American Diet.

      • bachcole

        The standard American diet is wrong, so staying away from it by being ketogenic doesn’t sound like you still have diabetes to me; it’s just that everyone else on SAD who isn’t diabetic will be eventually.

        • stronghands 1

          The RPh is not registered pharmacist but Renegade Pharmacist. I saw too many people who took meds for diabetes and said the drugs would take care of it. WRONG

            Oh: I simply referred to my previous post about ketogenic diet. I think I signed my post as RPh, perhaps I did not. Anyway, RPh while it means Registered Pharmacist, I say for me it means Renegade Pharmacist. Sorry for any confusion.
            And yes, stay away from the so-called medical profession experts. they have it all wrong. Thanks
