Why I Was Banned From Certain Diabetes Forums - and Why That Matters To You!!

Hi Everyone,

I've been debating whether or not to post this . I don't want to use this blog as a place to just vent because I want my blog to be entirely helpful to other people who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and to their loved ones looking for useful practical information. HOWEVER, I think I will vent a little here because I think you all need to know about this because there is so much information out on the net that looks good on the surface but it is actually being spun by those who profit from the diabetes epidemic and/or by those that have bought into their propaganda.

I participate in various forums around the net. It is a great way to connect and learn and a great way to share what you know with people who really need it. HOWEVER, there is an ugly dark side: moderation to the extreme to keep certain information off the net that might cut into the multi-billion dollar diabetes business. In the last few months, I have signed up to participate in two of the largest diabetes forums on the net. However, when I attempted to add to the conversation regarding natural ways to reverse diabetes, and in one case just talking about my own personal experience, I was immediately banned and they refused to even communicate with me about it. I was stunned and I began to look around the net only to discover that this has happened to literally dozens (probably hundreds) of others.

It turns out that anyone that talks about any natural way to prevent and/or reverse diabetes automatically gets banned from these sites. Anyone who even shares a personal story or how they reversed their diabetes naturally gets banned permanently and immediately!!! So, I started taking a closer look at who owns these sites, who runs these sites, and how these sites are funded. Guess what? They are closely connected to the multi-billion dollar diabetes "industry." This includes the pharmaceutical companies, traditional medicine specialists, and certain non-profit organizations that are in their camp as well. They are all profiting from the pharmaceuticals that diabetics have to take the rest of their lives, the ongoing testing, the medical checkups, all the diabetic equipment being sold, and all the various jobs in the medical and non-profit sector. These companies and individuals would not prosper if diabetes was cured naturally or prevented naturally. I know this is a dark topic but if we cure the diabetes epidemic naturally, we put these guys out of business and it is BIG business.

I remember watching a YouTube video of a doctor giving a lecture on how to cure diabetes naturally. He was asked to write an article (for money) in a well-known diabetes magazine. However, it was never published because he refused to do what the editor asked: modify his article so it didn't say that diabetes was curable. He was told by the editor that they couldn't publish an article that said that because the advertisers would never stand for it. (I'll look for that link and edit this post to include a link to that later if I can find it - if anyone reading this knows offhand, please post it here).

So, my main message to my readers is this: be very very wary of any information you read on websites, magazines, brochures, etc that include any advertising from the mainstream medical establishment, especially ads for diabetes pharmaceuticals and diabetes supplies. In my opinion, these sources of information are highly suspect and not in any way balanced. They will not tell you the truth, certainly not the full truth, because their advertisers simply won't stand for it.

Consider the source of all information you receive and please understand why there aren't more people like me out there telling you the truth about how to reverse and prevent type 2 diabetes naturally.


P.S. As an important side note: I was recently told by the webmaster of a large diabetes site that she could not link to my blog because she did not believe that diabetes could be reversed. She wouldn't even engage in an informed dialog on the issue. There are pharmaceutical ads and diabetes supply ads on her site.

How Much Sugar Do Americans Consume?

The human race did not evolve to consume so much carb as we currently consume and it's bound to reak havoc with our bodies. Some have called sugar the silent killer. So, I wanted to ask just how much sugar do Americans consume?

Several internet sources claim that the average American consumes more than 150 pounds of sugar per year, some, well actually many, consume much much more! I think the original source for this factoid came from a 2002 report from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and of course the sugar association disputes it. When my Grandmother was a little girl, the average American only consumed about 4 pounds of sugar per year so things have changed considerably. Oh, the same agency reports that many Americans eat almost double this amount per year! Of course, the Sugar Association, founded by members of the sugar industry, strongly disagrees with these stats.

According to the American Heart Association:

The average American consumes 22 teaspoons of sugar a day (that's simple sugar, not carbs in general). They say the biggest sources come from soda pop (33%) and candy (16.1%), ...hmmm, what about the high fructose corn syrup I read on the ingredient label of almost every condiment package I pick up these days and the vast majority of processed food packages I read... well, first they say cakes, cookies, and pies contribute 12.9%, sweetened fruit drinks 9.7%, sweetened milk products (like icecream and sweetened yogurt) contribute 8.6%, and sweetened grains like cinnamon and honey-nut waffles another 5.8%. Ok, add all that up and you've got 86.1%. I'm betting this is actually an underestimate because things like condiments often don't get counted. I recently went through a drawer of condiments collected from various fast food restaurants. I threw out about 80% of them because they contained high fructose corn syrup.

Looking at high fructose corn syrup specifically (which I believe is even worse than eating plain white sugar): the average American eats about 98 pounds of this stuff a year. I find it really difficult to avoid because so many products contain it. You basically just have to resolve yourself to not eating processed pre-packaged convenient food. One of my solutions is to cook more quantity when I cook up something really good and freeze individual servings in handy dandy microwaveable containers (yes, I know...microwaves aren't good either....working on that one but having to do this one step at a time).

More on this topic later.

Why You Should Eat WILD Salmon If You Are Diabetic (eat it as often as possible)

 Ok, I know wild salmon is darn expensive but remember food is medicine...if you catch a good sale, toss it in the fridge....or alternately, you could marry a salmon fisherman/woman (just a joke, sort of)

Wild Salmon Can Help Make Your Diabetic Cell Membranes Function Properly Again

You may have heard that omega-3 is good but you may not realize how important it is to the healthy functioning of our cell membranes and why that's important to diabetics. Unlike type 1 diabetics, type 2 diabetics usually produce plenty of insulin. In type 2 diabetics, the problem is really more about improperly functioning cell membranes, i.e. type 2 diabetics are insulin resistant.
When we eat, our food is broken down into glucose. This glucose enters the blood stream and the hormone insulin aids the glucose in transport across the cell membrane. The glucose must get inside the cell to fuel our bodies. If the glucose stays in our blood stream and does not get inside our cells, it doesn't do us any good and it causes type 2 diabetes.
It turns out that in order for our bodies to build healthy cell membranes capable of transporting the glucose across them, we have to have the proper building blocks. Omega-3 is one of the key building blocks to creating a healthy cell membrane. American diets are notoriously low in omega-3. To make matters worse, the American diet consists of lots of artificially manufactured trans fats which are unfortunately added to a wide variety of foods. These trans fats get substituted for the omega-3 in our cell membranes when there isn't enough omega-3 around.
Fish in general is rich in omega-3 but fatty cold water fish like salmon, herring, and sardines have by far the highest concentration of omega-3. For this reason, salmon is one of the healthiest foods a diabetic, or anyone at risk to develop diabetes, can eat.

Diabetics Can Not Convert Vegetarian Sources of Omega-3 Into the Right Type of Omega-3 Efficiently

The omega-3 found in vegetarian sources like flax seed, flax oil, and walnuts is a type of omega-3 called ALA. While humans can convert ALA into the more important types of omega-3 called DHA and EPA, it turns out we do not do so very inefficiently. Females convert it better than males. Young people convert it better than older people.However, the very best humans can do (in a young healthy female) is a 25-30% conversion. And most importantly to those with diabetes, some diabetics can't convert much ALA at all.
If you are diabetic, it is extremely important that you get enough DHA and EPA so your body can build new cell membranes and repair old cell membranes with the right type of omega-3. The right type of omega-3 is not found in vegetarian sources except for certain kinds of algae. If you are an omnivore, your best choice for obtaining omega-3 is salmon or a high quality salmon oil supplement. If you are a strict vegetarian, you need to look into taking an algal supplement that contains DHA and EPA.

Wild Salmon Has Less Mercury and Other Toxins Than Farmed Salmon

This fact was counterintuitive when I first learned about it but it makes sense if you know why. Mercury and other toxins like PCB's become more concentrated as they move up the food chain. This is why top predators are always more susceptible to toxins than those lower on the food chain. The classic example of this is DDT making the egg shells of predatory raptors too thin. Wild salmon eat a much wider variety of food than do farmed salmon, including things lower down on the food chain. Farmed salmon basically just get to eat the feed given to them. It turns out that much of this feed contains fish mill made from salmon so the toxins just become that more concentrated.

I like to skillet poach my salmon and either eat with lots of fresh lemon or a mixture of sour cream, lemon, and dill. Yum! If others have more suggestions, please leave a comment and I will post.

If you want to know the other best foods for diabetics and why...and how these foods can not only control but actually REVERSE (i.e. CURE) your diabetes, please check out the reference guide I review at the top of this page. It's MUST HAVE info for all diabetics and those who are at risk to develop diabetes which is more than half of the American population unfortunately. It also tells you what foods you have to avoid at all costs.
