Diabetes (diabetes mellitus) is a chronic, degenerative disease caused by insulin deficiencies due to the body being incapable of producing
normal insulin levels, or insulin resistance, a condition in which the cells of the body resist insulin's attempts at regulating blood sugar levels.
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to metabolize glucose, a form of sugar that is one of the primary sources of our cells energy
supply. Whether diabetes is caused by insulin resistance or a lack of insulin, the end result is equally as adverse. The result is the body can't
transport enough glucose from the bloodstream into the cells, especially after meals, when blood sugar levels rise as a natural consequence of
Normally, blood sugar levels in the body are maintained by the bodies self regulating mechanisms, known as homeostasis. A rise in blood
glucose after eating is supposed to stimulate production of the hormone insulin in the pancreas, and the insulin released into the bloodstream
should keep blood sugar levels within a safe and usable range. But when the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are not functioning
normally, glucose levels remain high. If this situation becomes chronic, the stage is set for the manifestation of diabetes.
Diabetes affects tens of millions of Americans, and it is estimated that a third of all people who have diabetes are unaware that they even have
it. Twenty three million people or eight percent of the population are documented as having diabetes. Diabetes causes nearly ten percent of all
U.S. deaths for people 25 and older. It is also the main cause of new cases of blindness among adults 20 to 74 years old, and it is the leading
cause of end-stage renal (kidney) disease. In addition, diabetes is the primary reason for amputations of the limb, and is a leading cause of
Types of Diabetes
Type 1 or insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) occurs when the pancreas fails to make enough insulin. It usually occurs in
childhood or adolescence but can develop at any age. These patients need insulin everyday.
Type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus occurs when body cells become resistant to insulin. This is more common among
adults, especially those who are overweight and over age 40. These people are able to control their blood sugar levels through weight control,
regular exercise and a well balanced diet. Some people require oral medications or insulin injections to lower blood sugar.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Increased thirst, increased urination, and increased appetite are the initial symptoms of diabetes. In type 1 diabetes weight loss is prominent,
and in type 2 obesity is common. Other possible symptoms are blurred vision, skin irritation or infection, weakness or loss of strength, and
decreased healing capacity. If diabetes is not diagnosed at the right time, symptoms like fluid and electrolyte imbalance, acidosis, and even
coma can develop.
Diabetes can be a major factor in the result of so many health problems, and is also capable of causing death. Fortunately it is possible to be
overcome, and can be completely eliminated through holistic treatments, the first and foremost being by proper diet. Use of the elemental
miracle has been seen to produce unbelievably rapid responses in regard to curing diabetes. In the book The Elemental Miracle there are
several case histories of persons who were extremely diabetic, who became cured of diabetes just by activating and ingesting this one mineral,
without changing anything else about their life. Several had type one diabetes all of their lives, yet were able to go off their insulin in a less than
a week. This was not some fanatical or emotional response on their part, as blood test and their doctors confirmed it was no longer necessary.
Of course there are several other very beneficial natural remedies for diabetes which are briefly covered here. I can't imagine why anyone would
not want to take advantage of several of them simultaneously, as they are totally safe when followed according to the standard
Natural Cures For Diabetes (don't rely on any one remedy alone)
I received this natural cure for diabetes from an Ayurvedic doctor who swears that anyone who follows it will be permanently cured of diabetes
within two months. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it does deserve serious consideration, as she is a respected member in her field.
Take 50 gm. of colocynth 50 gm. of acacia speciosa 50 gm of acacia arabica.
Take these ingredients and crush and mix them up equally into a powder. Put into capsules, and take enough to equal two grams of the
powder, once a day.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Cinnamon: A very effective natural remedy for diabetes is to use apple cider vinegar and cinnamon. Take two
tablespoons of raw unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar, mixed with four to six ounces of liquid and one teaspoon of cinnamon. (why not use
green tea?) I take apple cider vinegar at least twice a day with a teaspoon of baking soda. The baking soda keeps the vinegar from hurting my
teeth, and it's great for raising the bodies alkalinity. It's also fun to watch the vinegar fizz up. Either apple cider vinegar or cinnamon by
themselves, are both reputed to be very effective natural cures for diabetes, but together? Well all I can say is, welcome to the wonderful world
of holistic health and healing.
Green Beans: Green beans are traditionally known to lower blood sugar levels in even those with type 1 diabetes. Eat them fresh and often.
Fenugreek: The seeds of fenugreek have been found effective in the treatment of diabetes. Fenugreek seeds, when given in varying doses
daily, diminish reactive hyperglycaemia in diabetic patients. Levels of glucose, serum cholesterol, and triglycerides are significantly reduced in
diabetes patients after consuming fenugreek seeds. Soak 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in 1 cup of water at night. Drink the water in the
morning on an empty stomach and eat the seeds. Very good for diabetes because it works like insulin.
Fresh Ginger Juice: Drinking fresh ginger juice has worked wonders for persons with diabetes. You have to be careful not to drink too much
as it can lower your blood sugar levels too severely. Results have been reported to be all but instantaneous. Juice a very small amount, and
mix with water.
Yellow Dock Tea: How be it little known, yellow dock tea works wonders for diabetics. Steady use has been reported to eliminate even severe
diabetic symptoms. (not to be taken by pregnant women or those with liver or kidney disease)
Gymnema Sylvestre: A very well known Ayurvedic medicine. Gymnema sylvestre is well documented to be a powerful natural remedy for
Banaba: Scientific name Lagerstoemia Speciosa, banaba extract is commonly known as “plant insulin” as well as “botanical insulin.” It is
usually taken as a tea or in extract form. It is a particularly well known cure for diabetes in the Philippines as well as in Japan. It is mainly used
in the U.S. as a safe herb for weight control.
Milk Thistle, (silymarin): The herbal medicine extracted from seeds of the Milk Thistle, Silybum marianum (silymarin) is known to have
antioxidant properties. Research shows that this extract can help people significantly lower the amount of sugar bound to haemoglobin in
blood, as well as reducing fasting blood sugar levels. Silymarin contains a number of active constituents called flavolignans which are also used
to help protect the liver from poisoning.
Zinc: is essential for the pancreas to produce insulin and makes insulin work effectively. It also helps in fortifying the insulin receptor cells.
When zinc is low, the pancreas does not create sufficient insulin, thus high glucose levels
Ginko Biloba: An extremely effective herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and derived from one of the oldest trees on earth. Studies
indicate that ginkgo biloba has a beneficial effect on peripheral and cerebral circulation, and can therefore help to prevent the tissue damage
and poor circulation associated with diabetes. It is also suggested that ginkgo biloba can increase blood flow to the optic fibers of the eyes,
and therefore help to treat diabetes related eye disease.
Bitter Melon or Bitter Gourd: A very well known Ayurvedic herb, provides perhaps the most reliable immediate relief for diabetics. It has been
established that bitter gourd contains a hypoglycaemic or insulin like principle, designated as plantinsulin, which has been found valuable in
lowering the blood and urine sugar levels. It should, therefore, be included liberally in the diet of the diabetic. For best results, the diabetic
should take the juice of about four or five bitter gourds every morning on an empty stomach. The seeds can be added to food in a powdered
form. Diabetics can also use bitter gourd in the form of a decoction by boiling the pieces in water, or in the form of dry powder. It is readily
available fresh at most Asian or Indian markets, or as a powder from health food stores or Ayurvedic medicine websites.
Indian Gooseberry: with its high vitamin C content, is considered valuable in diabetes. A tablespoon of its juice, mixed with a cup of bitter
gourd juice, taken daily for two months, will stimulate the islets of Langerhans, that is, the isolated group of cells that secrete the hormone
insulin in the pancreas. This mixture reduces the blood sugar in diabetes
Parslane: The seeds of parslane are useful in diabetes. A teaspoon of the seeds should be taken every day with half a cup of water . They
increase the body's own insulin and help in curing diabetes.
Flaxseed Oil: Take two tablespoons of high quality flaxseed oil daily. You will notice within a few weeks that your blood sugar levels will drop. I
highly suggest you read Thomas Smith's book, "Insulin our Silent Killer". This book gives very detailed instructions for curing diabetes, as he
himself was diagnosed with the disease, and cured himself. Read up on the "bad" oils, and stop using them as they cause high blood sugar. In
this regard I would also like to mention the Budwig diet. Click the link below and read about it.
The Budwig diet is phenomenal at curing all types of diseases and has been very well documented at doing so.
Sage Tea: is a very old and well known herb to help lower and maintain a stable blood sugar level by diabetics. Simply use tea bags or steep
Chromium: is an excellent supplement to take for helping the body use sugar more efficiently. Chromium helps cells to respond better to
naturally producing insulin. Some rich sources of chromium are seeds and whole grains. Also mushrooms.
R-Lipoic Acid: helps to reduce the bodies blood sugars. It allows the cells to utilize energy more efficiently which is very beneficial for
diabetics, and has been seen to lower their blood sugar count by more than 30, single handedly.
Noni Juice: is very helpful for diabetes and many former diabetics have credited it for curing their diabetes.
Ordering Ayurvedic Remedies:
Marine Phytoplankton: promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. When the body is
missing critical components, it is unable to maintain the balance of these systems, and malfunctions producing diseases such as diabetes.
Phytoplankton contains a unique combination of life sustaining nutrients including; Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA), protein,
chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. Green food supplements such as blue green algae, barley and wheat grass, alfalfa, etc.
have also been shown to be very helpful in healing all manner of disease. Marine phytoplankton leads the pack and is well worth adopting into
your diabetes conquering arsenal.
Curing Diabetes Through Diet: I'm going to be brutally honest in regard to diabetes and diet. Of course as I've already mentioned the
elemental miracle has been seen to miraculously reverse even the most severe and chronic diabetes, yet why not heal your diabetes through
diet, and make sure your body is re-energized as well? For life! Diet is so important and for certain diabetes 2 is most definitely, one hundred
percent caused, and maintained by improper diet and lifestyle. I could lay out the do's and do not's of diabetes and diet, but why not make a
major life altering change? Besides I'm sure you've already heard them all, but what I'm about to recommend is something considerably
different. Why fool around with such a serious disease, when it can be so easily and rapidly cured? Therefore I've decided it best to refer you to
this wonderful website on diabetes & diet, hosted by two world class health authorities. If you stay focused and follow their program, you can
forget about diabetes forever! Good luck and best wishes.
If a total dietary change doesn't seem practical for you, then you might want to take a look at the information on these two websites:
In closing I would just like to mention that I don't see why anyone couldn't try several of these remedies at the same time. Why not all of them?
Use your head, devise a program and stay with it. Be a little patient and don't over do it. And be sure to stick to your diet! These things become
easier with time. The more you do, the faster the results. The more results you receive, the more enthusiastic you'll become. This temporary
health crisis your experiencing, might very well prove to become a springboard into a whole new life, so be very optimistic and stay positive.
Natural cures for all diseases are very reliable and effective. I want to commend you for at least making the effort, and for taking charge of your
own health. If you think there is anything I might be able to do in assisting you, don't hesitate to let me know. Here's wishing you a speedy
recovery from diabetes, and all of your health concerns.
