Stopping Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

I have watched many heartbreaking stories on YouTube about children with deadly diseases that eventually take the life of these little children and the parents more times than not ask how come God took the life of my little child. I have been looking into this question and what I have found is very upsetting.

So far I have found that God has given man cures to many diseases the problem is that man is so greedy that man would rather keep the cure secret and make a lot of money from pharmaceuticals designed to keep them wealthy and at the same time watch while your loved ones slowly die. God says that man has a sinful nature and is naturally evil. I can’t think of anything more evil than this.

I keep hearing about all the advances in modern medicine today and about how we are much better off today than we were 50 years ago. I would agree with this statement as far as the advances in traumatic medicine is concerned but what happened to the rest of the industry?

The last disease that was cured to my knowledge was polio way back in in 1953. I hate to burst anyone’s bubble but that was 65 years ago! What has the medical profession been doing for the last 65 years? It looks to me that today’s medical profession is more concerned with selling high priced drugs than curing anybody of anything.

Back in 2001 my wife was diagnosed with a fatty liver, type 2 diabetes, hypothyroidism, high blood pressure and depression. For the last sixteen years the medical doctors have put my wife on about twelve different medications. The cost of these medications to the insurance company came to over $3,000 a month or $36,000 a year.

She would shoot up two different types of insulin a day plus take three different pills for her type two diabetes. She would take one pill a day for her hypothyroidism, three pills for her depression and another three pills for her high blood pressure.

It seemed like whenever we would go to the doctor we could add another pill to our family of drugs. After sixteen years of this I decided I would look into this myself because after all this time and money my wife wasn’t feeling any better than when we first went to the doctor sixteen years ago.

The next time my wife went to the doctor I went with her. I started from the beginning of my wife’s troubles and asked the doctor what had been done to get rid of her fatty liver. Her doctor told me that there’s nothing they could do for a fatty liver there was no magic pill. Since all her medical problems began with a fatty liver I figured this was a good place to start my investigation.

I have heard many people make fun of the internet but as long as you “consider the source” there are some very smart people teaching medicine for free. I listened to an hour and a half lecture by Robert H. Lustig MD, UCSF Professor in the division of endocrinology. The program I listened to was called “Sugar the Bitter Truth.” Towards the end of his lecture he mentioned that apple cider vinegar dissolves the fat from the liver.

We used one tablespoon of Braggs Organic apple cider vinegar in eight ounces of purified water once in the morning and once in the evening. I knew it would take some time to dissolve the fat from her liver because she has had this condition for over sixteen years. After about three months she started losing weight and felt more energetic.

My wife used the apple cider vinegar for a little over a year and went from 153 pounds to 118 pounds. We then went to her doctor and scheduled more blood tests. After talking with her doctor I asked him how her liver test scored and her doctor told us that she no longer had a fatty liver and her blood tests came back in the normal range.

With my wife’s liver now back to normal we started looking into ways to stop my wife’s type 2 diabetes. I was watching on YouTube a doctor named Dr. Jason Fung. Dr Fung graduated from the University of Toronto and he is currently practicing medicine at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles.

Dr. Fung has several programs on YouTube and I listened to as many as I could find. Dr Fung was saying that the current medical establishment is treating type 2 diabetes all wrong. He said that giving a diabetic insulin would be the same as giving an alcoholic alcohol to cure his alcoholism. He also said that the insulin prevents your body from burning fat so the more insulin you take the fatter you get. Dr Fung also says that diabetes is a dietetic problem that can be corrected with the proper diet.

On July 7 2018 my wife went on Dr Fung’s low carb, high fat diet. immediately she stopped injecting the two types of insulin she used daily and after about five weeks she stopped taking her diabetic pills. (Invokana, Januvia and Lisinopril).

When she first went on the low carb, high fat diet we would test her blood sugar levels three times a day. The rule of thumb we used was if her blood sugar tested around 150 we were satisfied with that. We noticed on this diet that her sugar levels gradually started coming down. When her sugar levels hit in the 130’s she would eliminate one of her pills. When her level consistently hit the 120’s she would then eliminate another pill.

It took a little over three months for my wife to be completely off all of her diabetic medicine. Dr Fung says that the longer you have had diabetes the longer it will take to be completely off the diabetes medicine. My wife was a diabetic for over sixteen years.

Because of the weight loss she no longer needs her three medications for high blood pressure. Her blood pressure is consistently around 110 over 70. Because she no longer takes insulin she no longer needs her medication for hypothyroidism. In conclusion, If you know anybody with type two diabetes have them go to YouTube and type in “Dr. Jason Fung” and follow his advice.

Also if you know anybody that’s over weight and can’t get the weight off let them know it’s probably due to a fatty liver. The food industry would have you believe that this is due to too much fat in your diet. Not true! The truth is being over weight is due to sugar in your diet.

Dr Fung says that your metabolism can either burn sugar as energy or it can burn fat for energy. That is why the high fat, low carb diet works. When you cut out the sugar from your diet your body will then start to burn the fat as fuel.

Dr Lustig of “sugar the bitter truth” explains it this way. When you eat food that contains sugar your liver stops processing the food and devotes all its resources to processing the sugar. Your liver then stops processing the food and turns the food into fat.

Sugar has also been proven to cause cancer. In 1968 there was a study done where the researchers put mice on a sucrose diet. Over half the mice developed cancer. That study then was quickly silenced. you can find this study by typing in the Google bar “does sugar cause cancer”.

I hope whoever needs this advice uses it and doesn’t give up because what I wrote works and is the truth.

The next medical problem we are working on is my wife’s depression, She is currently taking three medications for this. I’ll let you know how it works out.

Fruits For Diabetes – What Fruits Can a Diabetic Eat?

Diabetic is a chronic disease causing health complications. The complications are tingling and numbness appearing in feet and hands. These also include vision problems and kidney failure. Diabetes is a risk prone towards heart disease, high blood pressure and strokes. To control high glucose level, people with diabetes fail to produce sufficient insulin or no insulin. Type 1 diabetes is based on genetics and type 2 is on diet and fatness. People with type 1 diabetes face difficulties to prevent, people with type 2 try to manage by dieting and exercising.

In macro sense, a good diet plan can help diabetes control the blood sugar levels. Fruits in a diet can naturally prevent diabetes. Colored fruits possess high anti-oxidant vitamins and fibers that let the blood sugar stabilize. It appears a false notion that diabetics should not have fruits. People with diabetes can have fiber- rich fruits including water million, strawberries, papaya, plums and muskmelon. These fruits can control blood sugar levels. Fresh lime supplies vitamins and minerals to the diabetics. On the contrary, fruit juices are to be restricted, because these contain much sugar.

In diet plan, it is better to avoid juice because it raises the blood sugar level. Mango, custard apples, banana and grapes contain high sugar ingredients and these fruits should not be included in the fruits group. Therefore, dry fruits possess high level of fat, and condensed energy so that these cannot be included in fruits group. Dates, the dark- colored oval fruits are to be excluded from the list of fruits, as because dates are rich in calories and be avoided by the diabetics. However, dried dates provide calcium and iron.

Hence, in moderation, diabetics may have apples, blueberries, cherries, kiwi fruit, pears, pineapples, mangoes, black currants. When you have 75 grams of any of these fruits, you will have 10 grams of carbohydrate. Similarly, to have 10 grams of carbohydrate, you have to consume 100 grams of guava, lemon, orange, papaya, peach, strawberries, or blackberries alternatively. One fifty grams of coconut meat, raspberries, or gooseberries can provide you ten grams of carbohydrate also. People with diabetics can adjust their fruits intake as per the requirement of the body. Fructose present in the fruits. Diabetics can have fruits like other healthy persons. The fruit, citrus contains manganese that is a useful ingredient for insulin. The western Ontario university has studied citrus possesses a flavonoid that contains insulin like properties. The flavonoid is also known as naringenin.

Even though fruits are permissible to the diabetics patients, excessive consumption of fruits can let the blood sugar level increase. You have to check the portion of the fruits always. Moderate consumption of fruits can control your blood sugar level.

Bitter melon is a traditional diabetic remedy in Far East. Bitter melon contains glucose absorption that increases insulin flow. It possesses insulin effectiveness also.

Onion group can help the blood sugar control. Garlic, leek, onion, and scallion belong to onion group.

Diabetic Diet: How Tangerines and Oranges Can Help Cure Diabetes

Don’t let anyone fool you. It is possible to cure type 2 diabetes and you can include many foods in your diabetic diet that contain substances that help cure diabetes.

Recent research proves that tangerines and oranges contain a substance called nobiletin that helps to cure diabetes. Specifically, nobiletin prevents the build up of fat in the liver and the subsequent over productive of insulin due to increasing glucose in the blood. Nobiletin also prevents the build-up of arterial plaque which causes heart disease and stroke.

Nobiletin is a very powerful antioxidant in a family of antioxidants called flavonoids. Antioxidants eradicate free radicals in the body that can lead to cancer, a compromised immune system, and a weakened body that can make it ripe for the development of diabetes. The underlying causes of all of these disorders are the same.

Tangerines contain more nobiletin than do oranges but both have a good quantity. Nobiletin is not found in lemons or grapefruit however. However, as an example of how variety is always good, lemons help diabetics in many other ways including very significantly lowering the glycemic index of any food it is added to and making your cells less insulin resistant.

The nobiletin is found in the tissues of the fruit and in the peel so just drinking juice is not as good as eating the whole fruit for this benefit. Grated peel is also a very tasty addition to salads and stirfries. You can also seep tangerine or orange peel in hot water for an excellent and very healthy tea. In fact, tangerine peel is has a mildly sweet flavor as a tea.

You really can can cure diabetes through diet and other natural means. I know because I cured my diabetes this way. I went from a HgAC1 of 10.6 to less than 6 (my last reading was 5.2) in less than 6 months and I’ve been able to keep it that way for quite a long time now. When I was first diagnosed, they were giving me insulin and then they wanted me to take a variety of prescription drugs for life.

They kept talking about how my disease would progress like it was a definite foregone conclusion this would happen. I finally said, “NO!” to the drugs, shopped around to find another doctor who would support my efforts to cure my diabetes naturally, and educated myself extensively on what to eat and what not to eat – and much of it is not as intuitive as you might think!

Ladies With Type 2 Diabetes Need Foods Rich in Magnesium!

Every woman who has Type 2 diabetes needs foods that are rich in magnesium. Here’s what you need know about why, what, and how to get the magnesium a diabetic body needs.

1. Why women who have Type 2 diabetes need to pay special attention to magnesium:

Researchers at the Department of Epidemiology and Program on Genomics and Nutrition, School of Public Health, and Center for Metabolic Diseases Prevention at the University of California at Los Angeles, have found that a relatively small amount of magnesium in the diet… just 100 mg a day… reduces markers of inflammation that are associated with tightened arteries and high blood pressure. Since inflammation fuels both weight gain and insulin resistance, getting 100 mg of magnesium a day should be a high priority for women with Type 2.

2. What do you need to eat to get magnesium?

You can get magnesium from any green plant food. Plants cannot make chlorophyll without magnesium… if it’s green and leafy, it definitely contains magnesium. You can tell which vegetables in the produce bin contain the most magnesium by looking at their stems and leaves. If the leaves slump inward, or if the stem is thin and limp, the plant was grown with a minimum of magnesium. Green vegetables with firm but tender stems and leaves that “stand up and salute you” are highest in magnesium.

Other good food sources of magnesium include nuts, seeds, and minimally processed whole grains. Magnesium is retained by stone grinding processes but lost in machine grinding processes. The magnesium in corn is much more readily available to the body if it’s been nictalized, the process used in Mexico to make masa for tortillas. The corn kernels are soaked in lye water, dried, and ground to make masa for tortillas or grits for breakfast cereal.

3. How you need to get your magnesium?

Since the magnesium in food is water-soluble, you shouldn’t mix high-magnesium foods with large amounts of high-fat foods, although up to a tablespoon (100 calories or 420kj) of fat at the same meal is a problem. It’s also better to avoid combining magnesium-rich foods with tannin-rich foods, such as tea and blueberries. And it’s also best not to combine your leafy greens with soy which contains many useful nutrients, but also some natural “soaps” that catch magnesium and other minerals.

4. What about supplements?

It’s better to get magnesium from food, rather than supplements, because of the range of nutrients in real food. If you take magnesium supplements, don’t take more than 400 mg at a time to give your body a chance to absorb the whole dose.
