Treating and Avoiding Diabetes

Published on June 4, 2024

Natural Allopathic treatments have a particular bearing on Diabetes and metabolic syndrome. As such, my next course, which I hope to release in about a month, is centered on the diabetic plague overtaking the Earth’s population. It is said that over 500 million people across the globe live with type 2 diabetes and probably a billion with metabolic syndrome. Many will see their condition progress over time and may eventually rely on insulin to help manage their blood sugar. If your doctor just told you it could be time to start insulin, it is a good moment to think twice and seriously study the alternatives.

As one would expect, the course, like my book on Diabetes from 15 years ago, will focus a lot on magnesium and sodium bicarbonate, two medicines, rarely or if ever recommended by your doctors, to lead the way in diabetic care and even reversal. There is no doubt that magnesium and bicarbonates are game changers in diabetic care and thus deserve attention. One of the root causes of type two Diabetes is magnesium deficiencies, and type one Diabetes is a result of toxicity-driven autoimmune syndrome, which directly affects the function of the pancreas and beta cells.

A point rarely made by anyone in the diabetic field is that Diabetes is easily brought on by toxic exposures to radiation (think CAT and PET Scans), chemo and radiation cancer treatments, and a host of chemicals and heavy metals that pollute our air, water, and food. Magnesium, bicarbonates, and other nutritional medicines in the Natural Allopathic protocol help the body deal with these toxic exposures.

There is so much to learn, and many people say so much. Much of the information is in conflict, so it is hard to conclude what is true and what is misleading, especially regarding diet and the use of pharmaceutical medicines to control blood sugar. But know no matter at what stage you are in diabetic progression, magnesium, and bicarbonates are emergency medicines that, when used correctly, can intervene and change your medical situation rapidly. They hold the potential to change the face of diabetic care. The second chapter in the course is about treating Diabetes to reverse it and cure it, and there are more than several ways to do this.

Listening to the Experts

I would have you listen to several experts on Diabetes. The first is to Dr. Sarah Hallberg, who used to be the Medical Director of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at IU Health Arnett, a program she created. She sadly passed away recently from lung cancer but was board-certified in both obesity and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology.

Nine years ago, in a TED talk listened to by 11 million people, she asked, “Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes?” Dr. Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is more straightforward than we might think. I recommend listening to the following video, but the videos following this one contradict Dr. Hallberg. However, whatever anyone says, white sugar and other forms are nutritional poisons. We will discuss sugar later in the course. That said, the sugars in fruit and vegetables are divine and necessary.

The second person I would have you listen to is Dr. Neal Barnard, clinic researcher and founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. He also makes a lot of sense, and over the years, three and a half million people have listened to him. Many would agree with him about cutting meat and vegetable oils from their diets, but he contradicts Dr. Hallberg and blames fat inside cells for preventing insulin from getting glucose into cells. He says that when a person has Diabetes, their insulin key is not working, but as we shall see, magnesium controls many aspects of insulin. However, Dr. Barnard is spot-on when he talks about arteriosclerosis, which a vast percentage of Western populations develop at a young age. Obesity excess fat, is highly correlated with Diabetes.

Dr. John McDougall insists, quite convincingly, that the foods we were born to eat are starch. He insists 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. Less processed starches generally tend to raise blood sugar more slowly. These include foods like brown rice, lentils, and oatmeal. Processed foods like white rice and white bread raise blood sugar quickly. Fiber helps slow down sugar absorption.

Dr. Neal Barnard is another famous doctor in the field of Diabetes. One must listen to many professionals on a diet and decide about your nutritional approach. Many do not want to listen to anything about their diets and eventually pay too high a price. If you have an official diagnosis of Diabetes, then the future is in your hands. I would not dare to decide for you mainly because I am not a dietician or a nutritionist. However, I want to show you the different sides of things and what is possible.

Please keep in mind that not one word was said by any of the above about magnesium and how science is firm that a deficiency in this mineral leads to insulin resistance. I believe I have avoided Diabetes because of my consistently high intake of magnesium over the last 20 years.

Mg2+ regulates electrical activity and insulin secretion in pancreatic beta-cells. Intracellular Mg2+ concentrations are critical for the phosphorylation of the insulin receptor and other downstream signal kinases of the target cells. Low Mg2+ levels result in defective tyrosine kinase activity, post-receptor impairment in insulin action, altered cellular glucose transport, and decreased cellular glucose utilization, which promotes peripheral IR in T2D. MgD triggers chronic systemic inflammation that also potentiates IR. People with T2D may end up in a vicious circle in which MgD increases IR, and IR causes MgD, which requires periodic monitoring of serum Mg2+ levels. The third chapter of the course is on reversing insulin resistance and profoundly explores the magnesium insulin story.

Diet is of Supreme Importance

Nothing changes the fact that one’s diet is still the key to not only controlling one’s Diabetes but also reversing it. Epidemiological data linking type 2 with obesity and a causal relationship between insulin resistance and weight gain has been gleaned from classical studies in which lean individuals with no previous history of obesity or Diabetes became insulin resistant upon experimental overnutrition. These facts reinforce the importance of understanding the physiological basis for insulin resistance in obesity.

It is difficult in our society to make people with Diabetes aware that nutritional alternatives to drug treatments exist. Magnesium and bicarbonates are nutritional, but we concentrate them into potent drugs without all the side effects inherent in pharmaceuticals.

I am sorry to say that your mainstream medical doctor will not present a complete story and will only deceive you about Diabetes and the drugs they suggest you take. And this plays right into the weakness of most patients who resist radical dietary changes.
