This time I would like to write a bit more about Dr. Schnitzers Diabetes Healing Diet. The author developed this therapy / diet after having avoided multiple leg amputations due to gangrene caused by diabetes, and many patients cured their leg and the diabetes. In his book “Diabetes Causes & Cure – including Cure of Later Diabetes Consequences” there are several testimonials written by patients themselves, who for the past 20 years have been cured of diabetes, both type I and type II, with his healthy eating concept. Since I already explained his food theory, which has a perfect logic to me, today I want to go a little more in detail about the diet. According to a scientific study on the constitution of men’s jaw and teeth throughout history, it concluded that men and women are naturally frugivorous. From that conclusion we can deduce the type of food that […]

Thanks to my research on diabetes, I’ve come to know that there are many different ways to improve our health and even cure “incurable” diseases (as allopathic physicians say) such as diabetes. I guess that every one of those who have diabetes got this disease for different reasons: eating too much (and especially white flour and sugars), stress, a trauma, blockage of nerve pathways in the spinal cord, prolonged emotional problems, inherited, by a virus, caused by a drug or vaccines in children, etc… With this in mind, it seems logical that each one should look the best method to cure him/her according to what may have been the cause of their diabetes. What works for me, may not work for another one and vice versa. The good thing about natural therapies -practiced by specialists-, is that although it may not be the most appropriate for your particular case, it […]

Well, lets get to the point with the therapy that I’m using to heal my diabetes! Everything began one day, about four centuries before Christ, when Hippocrates said: “Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food.”   I’ve always asked myself why traditional medicine considers Hippocrates as the “Father of Medicine”, even making medicine students take the Hippocratic oath before becoming “real” doctors who then completely forget how medicine should be according to him. Why hasn’t more research been done on nutrition to keep, treat and heal the body? After all, that’s what nature has put at our disposal. After 9 years of trying different therapies (low-carb diet, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Homeopathy…) I think I’ve found what is really helping my body achieve a better health, decrease the insulin dose, and have deep trust that I can, and I will, heal myself. It’s not that the other therapies […]

Here I am again, this time with some statistics of the treatment to cure diabetes by Dr. Schnitzer, taken from his website. In fact, the first physician to systematically use this method as standard therapy in patients both with type I and type II diabetes, as well as its subsequent consequences, was Dr. Helmut Weiss. In the “Medical Week of Baden-Baden (Medical Week Baden-Baden), an annual medical conference, reported the results obtained during the first months in 119 patients with diabetes. The following table provides an impressive perspective (clic image to enlarge): I don’t know about you, but these are the type of statistics that I would like to see in a doctor’s office. But as I said, I decided to take responsibility for my health and my life. So I follow the maxim “He who heals is right”. And for me, these results shown above are enough to convince […]

Today I heard a quote that I think is from the poet Walt Whitman, who said “Truth is simple. If it was complicated, everybody would understand it.” That made ​​me think about how much we are used to make everything complicated. I see in that phrase a startling parallel with the current medical paradigm. Healing should be simple. Our bodies come with a perfect healing machine to this world and they “only” need the right stimuli (fresh and whole food, water, exercise …) and the appropriate internal and external environment (stressless, positive and confident in our healing) to carry out their primary function. Albert Einstein was also an advocate of simplicity. He said “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” If the great geniuses of history agreed on this, could it be that there is some truth in it?

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, […]

Today I want to recommend an interesting video about the possibilities for curing diabetes. It is actually a trailer for a documentary film that will be launched in spring 2008. It’s similar to “Super Size Me”, a critique to junk food that is reigning in some countries and the impact this has on our health. In this video, some Americans suffering from insulin-dependent type II diabetes who were in use to eat regularly McDonalds, were taken for 30 days to a kind of farm in the desert, accompanied by doctors, and ate only organic food, fresh, raw, changing their lifestyle. The results are impressive! I can’t wait to watch this documentary and I hope it reaches many people!

The answer to that should be something like “your problem is that you live in a society that has lost its contact with its creator and provider: Mother Nature. Today I want to write about the importance of diets to help the body heal itself from any illness. I’m experiencing the benefits of a healthy nutrition more and more everyday. Just to mention some of these improvements that I’m experiencing: -50% insulin intake reduction -weight reduction (in my case I did not need it, from my point of view) -digestive improvement (no more constipations or diarrheas) -halitosis (bad breath) has become neutral, that is, it doesn’t smell badly anymore -cold sore (herpes) that lasted between 1 and 2 months before until it disappeared, now they are gone in two or even one week -clearer thinking and a more positive attitude. And all that happened in just one month after having […]

Lets see the first results and conclusions of the first weeks following this diet that is helping me heal my diabetes type I. First of all, in order to show you that this is working, let me show you two features of my blood sugar levels and the insulin injected, one week before beginning with the diet until one week after.   I began with the diet on July 21st and, as you can see, one week before the blood sugar was having ups and downs, although without high peaks. That seemed to be more or less okay. Back then I was injecting 6-7 units of rapid-acting insulin for each meal and 14 units of low-acting insulin before going to bed. The interesting thing occurred the very first day I started the diet, since I could start reducing the insulin, one unit at a time, until just needing 1 […]

I know that by following information about a therapy that has been applied successfully on some patients, it is important to know what kind of patient he/she was and be familiar with his/her health situation. Therefore, I’m going to write, as briefly as possible, about the kind of patient I am. My name is Charly and I am 32 years old. I got diabetes 9 years ago, after three weeks of suffering the usual symptoms that indicate diabetes type I: extremely tired, very thirsty, need to urinate all the time, very hungry, eating lots of calories and sugar in order to „make up for“ being so tired and hungry (totally wrong!), and loss of 10 kg. until a weight of 62 kg. Being 186 cm tall, you can imagine how thin I was. Scared by the situation, I went to the hospital for two days, from where I left insulin-dependent, […]
