Are We “Winning the War” on Diabetes? 5

If a person is suffering with elevated blood sugar levels or Type-2 diabetes, do most doctors seek out and eliminate the cause? Or, is it more likely patients will be prescribed medication which can lead to complications and further physical breakdown?


Most doctors treat symptoms rather than causes for diabetes, cancer and arthritis. The symptomatic approach to diabetes does not eliminate the CAUSE, while drugs and insulin only temporarily deal with the high blood sugar condition without getting rid of the diabetes.

In spite of over $218 billion spent annually on diabetes research (in search of what the medical and pharmaceutical industries call a cure), the cost of treating diabetes continues to rise – and over 2 million new people are diagnosed with diabetes each year.

Currently, approximately 30 million children and adults (over 8% of the population) have diabetes.

What if Diabetes is preventable and almost always reversible? What if there was a way to get rid of Type 2 diabetes permanently and never have need for a pill or insulin ever again or have a concern for eyesight loss or limb amputation? The key to getting rid of the “symptom” of diabetes is to eliminate the “CAUSE” of diabetes.

The Cause of Type-2 Diabetes


A healthy cell membrane allows vital nutrients and fuel to pass into the cell while ushering toxins and waste products out, thus maintaining a healthy balance inside and outside the cell so that it can produce good energy and function. In order to construct healthy cell membranes, the cells need the nutrients and good fats found in plant source foods along with some Omega-3 fatty acids. These foods keep the insulin-glucose pathways into the cell functioning normally so that insulin can give right amount of sugar into the cell to satisfy its energy needs.


Sadly, the Standard American Diet (SAD) is not the answer. Rather, it’s over abundance of unhealthy animal fats and hydrogenated fats, slowly clogs the cell membranes, creating a blocking action for the nutrients entering and wastes exiting the cell. Because of this blocking action, blood sugar levels begin to climb as sugar backs up into the blood. This also causes blood insulin levels to rise. In an attempt to lower this rise, doctors prescribe additional insulin which doesn’t solve but only exacerbates the blood sugar problem. Ironically, the cause of Type-2 diabetes is not insufficient insulin, because in most instances the Type-2 diabetic is already producing more insulin than the non-diabetic.

The Solution

1. Diet & Exercise - Up to 80% of Type 2 Diabetes is reversible with permanent life style changes. Mediterranean Diet is best which includes abundant quantities of legumes, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and light-to-moderate alcohol consumption, with olive oil as a primary dietary fat. It also includes moderate amounts of fish and dairy products, and low amounts of poultry, meat, highly processed foods, and refined sugars.

2. Toxin Removal - There are new studies showing that toxins are the cause of up to one third of all Type 2 Diabetes. Removing the toxins that have bio-accumulated in the cells for decades is a great way to turn off the gene expression responsible for building disease of which diabetes is one of these diseases.

3. Intermittent Fasting – improves glucose metabolism and diabetic complication risk
