Natural Treatments

Here you will find all the posts on this site that deal with alternative medicine and natural treatments for diabetes.

This is chapter 13 (part II) of my book “DIABETES. A world of possibilities”, which I’m publishing here for free. You can access all chapters of the book published until now here. There are a variety of diets and treatments, from hundreds or thousands of years ago to the present day, to treat diabetes. Some have been more studied than others, and others have been passed from generation to generation by word of mouth and collective experience. Now I will mention the different ways of understanding and treating diabetes which I have been studying and applying during these 15 years of research. I will summarize very briefly what each one is about, since explaining each of them in depth would make this book twice as long. Let me start with the diets for diabetes mentioned in the comparative table from last week: Dr. Stefan Ripich and Jim Healthy holistic diet (book […]

This is chapter 13 of my book “DIABETES. A world of possibilities”, which I’m publishing here for free. You can access all chapters of the book published until now here. This chapter has been the one where I struggled most with deciding how to approach it and what to write. Surely, because I know that it’s the topic where you might be most interested. This can be a long one, so if you want to reach the comparative table with the different diets for diabetes, go ahead to the bottom of this post. Since I am not a nutritionist, biologist, nor chemist, and I have not yet had the experience of having cured my type 1 diabetes with some particular type of diet, I cannot (and, I think, I should not) recommend a specific diet as the better one. I thought of working together with an expert in nutrition for diabetes […]

I have already written about the Roman’s family here before. Since I found the case of their two sons with type 1 diabetes and how they have approached it very interesting, I interviewed them. You can read the answers here below…I hope you can get inspired or learn something that you can apply to yourself or your children if they have diabetes. Please, share briefly with us who you are and why are you involved in the diabetes world. What type of diabetes do your children have/had and when were they diagnosed? We are Dan and Sally Roman, the parents of two type 1 diabetic children. Dan was the former Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a specialty pharmacy and disposable medical supply company, and Sally was a Registered Nurse before becoming a full time mother to 6 children. Together, we are co-founders of Health-e-Solutions. After quickly experiencing the limits […]

This is chapter 11 of my book “DIABETES. A world of possibilities”, which I’m publishing here for free. You can access all chapters of the book published until now here. This is a subject of much controversy, especially between proponents of allopathic medicine and alternative medicine advocates. These differences are based on the experience of each of them, and their intentions. Allopathic medicine, with its treatments, has never been able to cure someone with diabetes, nor return sugar levels to normal without medication (type 2 diabetes) and they say that this disease has no cure. Alternative medicine—more natural and holistic—on the other hand, has always been more open to treat the disease in different ways, and in many cases they did reverse diabetes in patients with the disease (especially type 2, and to a lesser degree type 1). These “cures” are usually denied by allopathic medicine practicioners or they say that […]

Review of The Matrix Assessment Profile showing you how to finally address the root cause of your chronic symptoms from type 2 Diabetes, naturally Whenever I find someone focusing on the root cause of a disease, I start to pay attention… and you should too! In this article, I will take you through what The Matrix Assessment Profile is, and how it can help you finally put an end to your diabetes symptoms naturally. Not long ago I attended a webinar that told me all about The Matrix Assessment Profile (MAP) treatment for diabetes. I got hooked up and stayed until the end of the webinar. What I heard was very different to what we usually hear from doctors. The MAP is aiming at discovery of the root cause of your Type 2 Diabetes symptoms instead of just managing the symptoms of diabetes and its medications. What is causing your […]

Some weeks ago I purchased the book “The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle” by Franklin House, M.D., Stuart A. Seale, M.D. and Ian Blake Newman and recently finished reading it. Since my last review seems to have helped many people, I wanted to review this one as well in hopes of helping improve even more people’s lives. Both books have basically the same title or message but approach the diabetes treatment from different perspectives (although in many aspects they agree). The basic difference between “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure” by Dr. Ripich and this book is that the first allows you to eat meat, milk, eggs etc. while this one reviewed here is based on a plant based diet (vegetarian). Both are backed up by research and present convincing arguments. And both of them are getting excellent results, such as getting diabetics off drugs (or reducing them) and improving outstandingly their overall health. […]

It seems to me that most people are totally unaware of diabetes facts. It is shocking how many people actually suffer from diabetes in the world today. The prevalence of diabetes is increasing rapidly especially in developing countries like China and India. The WHO (World Health Organization) attributes this partly to increased obesity, changes in traditional eating habits and a more sedentary lifestyle (you can also read my post “The 21+1 Causes of Diabetes“). If diabetes statistics continue at their present levels of acceleration, the WHO predict diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death in the entire world within 20 years. Here are 9 diabetes facts you should keep in mind:   Diabetes Fact #1: In 2010, there were an estimated 346 Million people suffering from diabetes worldwide according to the WHO. Of these, 25.8 million live in the USA. The USA ranks number 3 in the world […]

As a follow up to my recent blog post titled “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure Review” I wanted to give some extra insight into what can you expect from this book and from this diet/plan. Therefore, I asked someone in the sales team of this book if I could use some of the information revealed in the book in my blog. They agreed, so here you have and overview of what to expect from Dr. Ripich and Jim Healthy’s diabetes cure plan (I wrote it literally as it appears in the book.) I hope this encourages you, as it did with me, to give it a try. The 30-Day Diabetes Cure Structure: PHASE ONE: Blood Sugar “Boot Camp” “This is the strictest stage of the plan. During the first 10 days, you‘re going to go “cold turkey” off all the diabetes-causing foods, beverages, and bad habits that have been making you […]

This time I come with good news, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. Two days ago newspapers and online news sites started publishing news referencing the discovery that British researchers have made in which diet can cure type 2 diabetes. In my opinion, this shouldn’t really be news today, because there are several methods (in this blog you can read about some of them) who long claim that with proper diet and sport diabetes type 2 can be reversed. Anyway, all the hype that is being given to this news will be good too. In a nutshell, they have discovered that taking a 600 calories diet for 2 months, type 2 diabetes disappears with the elimination of fat around the pancreas. This is also what they are doing in some hospitals to remove obesity (and diabetes) in obese people. Of course, such a treatment costs about $20,000. With the […]

After some years of research, trying and writing about all possible treatments to cure diabetes, I recently stumbled upon a magnific source of information for all of us, searching hopelessly for guidance and/or a therapy to heal our diabetes, be it type 1 or type 2. The book is called “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure” (The drug-free solution to America’s #1 health crisis), by Dr. Stefan Ripich, ND, CNP and Jim Healthy (America’s Health Coach) as co-author. In this post I’m going to review this book, explain what I like about it and what I don’t, and hope that this will help you decide whether you too want to give it a try or not. First of all, I don’t know about you, but I do care a lot about my health and the potential consequences of my diabetes. For many years (soon it will be 13 years since I […]

In my nearly 13 years with type 1 diabetes I’ve tried many things, diets, therapies … without total success (which does not mean they couldn’t work for others.) I am convinced that each of us is different and what works for you may not work for another and vice versa. But my recent researches are leading me toward something that seems to be common to all, as it is on the biological basis of our body as a human species. I mean the glyconutrients. Many scientists believe that research on glyconutrients is the greatest advance in health and nutrition. Science, the world’s most popular magazine for researchers and scientists, dedicated one of his runs entirely on educating the medical and scientific community about Glyconutrients, Glycobiology and glycoscience (March 23, 2001 issue: Carbohydrates and Glycobiology) It also demonstrates the importance of the fact that 4 out of the last 9 Nobel […]

I hope all of you had a good end of year 2010 and that 2011 has started with all the energy, motivation and courage that you desire and deserve to improve your health or any other area of your lives. As I said in my previous article “World Without Diabetes Day” my new year resolution is to try some treatments or foods to help my body to regenerate and stay healthy. I decided to start by PXP Forte because I think in my case it can help a lot to my body to regenerate organs affected by diabetes and thereby reduce the need for external insulin. A few days ago I ordered the product and I have it at home and have been using it for the last 3 days. It is early to see changes, so if you’re interested stay tuned because I will publish any change that I […]

It is November 14 again, known by many as World Diabetes Day. On this day, we try to join forces to inform the population about diabetes prevention and education. On one hand, I feel strongly about prevention, that is, educating people (particularly at risk for diabetes, but also in general) and taking actions like those carried out today may help somehow. On the other hand, what about the millions of people who already have diabetes? If you take a look at the statistics, it is entirely right to draw conclusions as: if medicine is supposed to advance (or so they say), then why are more people with diabetes? Perhaps medicine is moving in the wrong direction? Could it be that some companies/agencies are not interested in curing diabetes? And why those studying and researching alternative treatments for diabetes that are getting positive results are not allowed more space and freedom? […]

Today I want to share with you some of the plants or foods that I have recently learned help improve the health of diabetics, or even help cure diabetes. Yacon (Peruvian ground apple) Yacon is a root vegetable grown in Peru that has some fabulous properties for diabetics. Yacon root is the edible part of the tuber and is composed mostly of water and fructo-oligosaccharides (carbohydrates metabolized by the digestive system). That means it has a sweet taste but in doesn’t cause blood sugar to rise due to the type of carbohydrates it contains. Its hypoglycemic action makes it an ideal food for diabetics. In addition, fructo-oligosaccharides act as probiotics to improve gastrointestinal health, the immune system and to prevent the development of various diseases. Thanks to the bifidobacteria stimulated by the consumption of yacon, fewer toxin are created and therefore there is a lower risk of colon cancer. Yacon […]

Dr. Mercola, an American physician who I have been following for more than a year, has posted another entry on his website (the most visited website about natural health, with more than one million hits a month) on type 2 diabetes. Dr. Mercola is a licensed physician who realized how ineffective many conventional medical treatments to cure chronic diseases are. Now he practices his medicine in a more natural way, taking into consideration what helps and what harms the body. Anyway, here is the article: The Glaring Diabetes Error That Even Most Doctors Don’t Recognize The concept that is being overlooked by conventional medicine is that diabetes is not a disease of blood sugar. Yes, blood sugar becomes elevated in people with diabetes, but this is a symptom of the real problem, and it is an attempt by your body to keep things in balance. The real problem in diabetes […]
