Recommendations

In this section I include articles I’ve written about something I recommend because I think it can be interesting for many people affected by diabetes or who are interested in health issues and live healthier.

A new case of successful stem cell therapy to cure diabetes type 1 and type 2. This time in China, carried out with people, not animals. Are we closer to find a cure for everyone? What do we, patients with diabetes, relatives and friends worldwide must do to make pharmaceutical companies and governments to take our lives seriously and to let us heal? Cellonis Diabetes Stem Cell Therapy: A Chance for Insulin Independence and the Reversal of Complications The second link is a video of a doctor who worked many years for Eli Lilly & Co., one of the largest manufacturers of insulin and pills for people with diabetes, in which he speaks of how dirty and corrupt the health-system is, and how naive and gullible we are all to obey doctors/pharmacists without questioning. Videos of Dr. John Virapen about corruption in the pharmaceutical industry, governments and doctors: Video 1 […]

It seems that good news are spreading lately, or at least hopeful news, for those who have diabetes. I am posting a link to a story about an experiment in mice that cured 50% of the critters with a single injection, which caused his immune system to cease the attack on its own pancreatic cells. With so many successful experiments of type 1 diabetes cure, I can’t believe that there is no treatment available on the market yet. Sciencedaily.com: Success in reversing type 1 diabetes in mice And another link to a video on an insulin pump to make daily life easier to those who want to carry it. Worth seeing and thinking about using one: Living without injections Are you using an insulin pump? How does that affect your life?: Please, share it with a comment.   Was this article helpful?

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 […]

Who knew that microbes can protect us from disease? This is the conclusion reached after a group of scientists experimented with mice by exposing to common stomach bacteria. The result was that these mice were protected against the development of type 1 diabetes. These findings support the “hygiene hypothesis,” which refers to the lack of exposure to parasites, bacteria and viruses in developed countries leading to an increased risk of diseases like allergies, asthma and other immune system problems. Many people don’t know that type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that occurs because the immune system cells mistakenly attack the pancreas that produces insulin. In type 1 diabetes the pancreas does not fail, but the immune system does. One wouldn’t think that symptoms such as allergies or asthma have anything to do with diabetes. In fact, all are linked with immune system problems (I myself have both diabetes and […]

Today I’ll touch on something that everyone knows should do, but few put into practice: exercise. In particular, this time I write for type 2 diabetics, who are increasingly suffering the consequences of this disease, knowing that the cure for diabetes is in their hands, or rather, in their mouths and their legs. Anyone who has doubts about the judgments of “incurable” and “life-long disease” offered by insensitive doctors when they tell us that we have diabetes, may have noticed that type 2 diabetes cure is possible. And the two pillars to sustain the cure naturally are starting a healthy diet (to cure the disease, instead of keeping it) and physical exercise / sport. It is crystal clear: allopathic doctors are telling us, natural therapists recommend it to us, and any blog or website related to diabetes also suggests it. For a diabetic, exercising or practicing sports should be as […]

Well, it seems that finally the film/documentary “Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days” is available. This documentary shows a group of 6 people who were chosen to spend a month among experts in natural medicine and raw foods to try to improve or reverse the diabetes that each of them had been suffering for years. To do this, they had to completely change their diets. Some went from eating just hamburgers to a completely vegan diet, organic and raw, to reverse diabetes without drugs. In this film, 91 minutes long, you can see how each of the participants transforms, both physically and emotionally, a transformation that is closely followed and monitored by Dr. Gabriel Cousens (known holistic physician and authority in alternative healing) in the Tree of Life Center in Arizona. The film’s message is that this diet (the original medicine of nature) may reverse diabetes and improve the […]

This time I have a recommendation for everyone! I’m talking about the Raw For Life DVDs. If you have heard about the Raw For 30 Days film documentary that is comming up in Spring 2008, you probably know that these guys have just (in November) lounched a 2 DVD pack where they gather lots of information about the Raw Food. I bought the DVDs from their website, I received it three days ago, and I watched them all in once one night. Wow, they have done a great job! In the DVDs they present the raw food diet as the healthiest of choices if you have consideration about your body and your health. Since I have been on a raw food diet for 5 months now, I can tell you that it has helped a lot reducing the amount of insulin needed due to my diabetes type I. As I […]

If you are type II diabetic you’ll find this link interesting (death to diabetes). It’s a website of an engineer who got a diabetic coma with a blood glucose level 1337 and 4 months later he was healed! It is encouraging and can help you to really understand your illness condition and probably cure it naturally as well. Here you have a video presentation about it: Update May 2011: I found a new resource to cure diabetes that has impressed me. You can read the review I wrote about “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure” here.

Today I wanted to give a trick that helps to stay focused on the goals we have in mind. Every year we plan things and we set goals. At the beginning we are confident and very focused on what we want. But over the days, weeks or months, depending on the individual, the strength of the conviction we had at the beginning fades. Until one day we no longer remember what we wanted. Well, there are little tricks to avoid that. Since I can’t, nor want, miss my goal, the day I started with the diet that is helping me cure my diabetes, I wrote with my wife’s lipstick on the bathroom mirror: “I’ll achieve it!” To which my wife wrote below: “Yes!” I chose that place because it’s something I watch every morning when I wake up. So every day I see it and I remember what my main […]

Today I would like to start saying that the current medicine way to treat diabetes is probably based on false assumptions (like, “diabetes is incurable”). Yesterday I found an example of this, reading an article in a journal on the Internet about genomics. Apparently, for the first time a study has found the complete genetic sequence of a person (in this case the researcher’s own project Craig Venter) One of the conclusions of the study is that “the [genetic] variation from one human to another is seven times higher than previous estimates, showing that at the genetic level we are much more unique individuals [than we thought].” What do I mean by this? Well, if in fact each one of us is unique and different at the biological level, why does the health system insist so much to treat everyone in the same way? If you are diagnosed with diabetes, […]
