Curing Diabetes Versus Managing It - Curing It Gives You a Higher Quality of Life

Traditional medicine emphasizes "managing diabetes" rather than "curing diabetes." So first, I should probably point out the difference. Managing diabetes means you do things to keep the symptoms of diabetes in check, i.e. you do things to lower your blood sugar. In traditional medicine, this mostly means you take oral medication and/or insulin and adjust it according to how high (or low) your blood sugar is when you check it several times a day/week/month. Most traditional doctors will also suggest eating fewer carbs, a "low carb diet," and getting more exercises. However, this does absolutely nothing to cure diabetes because all you are doing is controlling the symptoms rather than actually addressing the root cause of the diabetes. Of course, exercise and eating healthier can help slow down the disease but even these positives don't even cure it.

In alternative medicine (natural medicine) circles, a completely different approach is taken. You are taught how to CURE your diabetes, i.e. you are taught how to use food to heal your cell membranes that are causing your insulin resistance and reverse diabetes entirely. You are taught natural ways to get your metabolism working correctly again.

When you manage your diabetes with medicine, it is a constant roller coaster ride when it comes to your blood sugar levels. Most medicines are just making your body produce extra insulin when the real problem is actually that your cell membranes have become so badly damaged they can't work with insulin. You may be producing enough insulin, maybe even more insulin than a normal healthy person, but your cells are so faulty they can't work with it. So, instead of taking your blood sugar all day and taking medications that can even drop your blood sugar too low, you would be much healthier and lead a much higher quality life if you can heal your membranes and your endocrine system. Would you like to know how? Here is the best resource that I know of to help you heal your cell membranes and cure your diabetes naturally, rather than artificially managing the symptoms with prescription drugs.

How To Reverse Diabetes - 2 Things To Do Immediately!

I am so happy that the word is out - type 2 diabetes CAN be reversed through diet and other natural means. However, if you are searching for "how to reverse diabetes" online, you could possibly be misled by some websites to think that there is a single thing you should do to reverse diabetes. This is not the truth. There are actually SEVERAL steps you should take, most simultaneously, to reverse diabetes and you really need to follow all of them to make sure it works. The best comprehensive source of information that shows you all the steps to reversing diabetes that I have found is this one (this link will take you there).

However, having said the above, I think there are two things that you should do immediately while you are learning about the other things. In fact, I would say these things are so important that if you don't do them, they could literally prevent you from reversing your diabetes even if you are doing everything else correctly.

The two things are as follows:

1. COMPLETELY eliminate trans fat from your diet. Please note that this does not mean to just reduce trans fat or to eat trans fat in moderation. This means completely eliminate it 100% from your diet. If you even suspect something contains trans fat, don't eat it. There are many ways that you could possibly be getting trans fat without even knowing it. I do suggest you read my articles on how heating otherwise healthy trans fat can create trans fat, how canola oil contains trans fat even though it is not labeled that way (another article on coconut oil and diabetes), and how to identify trans fat on a food label.

2. You should also immediately and completely eliminate ALL high fructose corn syrup from your diet. Again, this means 100% eliminate it from your diet, not just reduce it. Read all food labels and look for the acronym HFCS as well as the word spelled out. Also note that "corn sugar" may be used in the future to replace the phrase "high fructose corn syrup."

Okay, I'm now adding a third action you should immediately take to this list and that is DETOX. Look for my information on how to detox in the archives. The source I linked above has a lot more information on how to do this safely as well.

Type 2 diabetes did not even exist before trans fat was introduced into the food supply and was responsible for the very rapid rise in this new disease in the 1930's. The second rapid rise in type 2 diabetes occurred in the 1970's when high fructose corn syrup was introduced into the food supply in a big way.

So, my advice to you is to completely and immediately eliminate these 2 things from your diet which you read and digest this information to learn the other steps you need to take. Keep in mind that I am speaking from experience as I myself have reversed my diabetes and I am on a personal quest to help others do the same. This disease is not even natural. It is a disease of modern world with all the toxins in our food supply. Luckily,  there are ways you can reverse it.

What is "Corn Sugar?" and Why Should Diabetics Care?

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) suffers from an image problem - and for very good reason! The word is out that this industrial food toxin and it is REALLY bad for you. In fact, if you are trying to reverse diabetes, this is most definitely something you should immediately COMPLETELY eliminate from your diet.

Now, the Corn Refiners Association, a very powerful lobby group for corn growers and businesses that produce and use high fructose corn syrup, has decided it wants to pull the wool over the public's collective eye once again.

Instead of food ingredient labels listing "high fructose corn syrup," they are lobbying the US Food and Drug Administration to allow them to change this term to "corn sugar." They are claiming that the current term is confusing to the American Public and needs to be changed to make it more clear what it is. Of course, what they actually want to do is make it sound more benign and perhaps have it confused with corn syrup, not great for you but not as highly toxic as high fructose corn syrup!

In my opinion, what would make it more clear to consumers is if they labeled it what it truly is:

"industrialized artificial sugar-like substance that causes a variety of health issues, including fatty liver disease and diabetes"

This would be FAR closer to the truth than the benign sounding marketing term, "corn sugar."

Many type 2 diabetics developed their disease in large part because of industrialized artificial foods and the marketing that goes into making these artificial food-like substances sound like real food and actually good for you. Remember, if you drink down a cola with high fructose corn syrup, you are filling your body with poison. It may not kill you right away but after this stuff accumulates, it can cause you all kinds of grief.

Everyone, especially diabetics, should contact the USDA and let them know to leave the label alone and not allow this powerful lobby group buy their way out of this one. Let them know how much MORE confusing it would be if they changed the terminology now.

Don't forget to check out the video behind the red button above if you want the truth about how to cure diabetes.

Why Is High Fructose Corn Syrup In Everything Now?

I've been harping about the health dangers of high fructose corn syrup to all my friends and acquaintances and I've got them all reading food labels (be sure to take a magnifying glass if you don't have perfect vision -- in fact, some ingredient labels are difficult to read with 20/20 vision).

All my friends are asking now, "Why is high fructose corn syrup in everything?" They even add to things that don't make sense. A friend bought some croissants from the grocery bakery, got them home, and then read guess what on the food label... yep, you guessed it, high fructose corn syrup which I've been calling, "high freakin' corn syrup!"

It's in almost every processed food products you pick up now. Frozen foods, especially frozen pizza and other frozen "junk food," ready made sauces, condiments, bakery goods, take out hot food, deli food, lunch meat, juices, candy, cookies, and even foods labeled as "natural" the food manufacturers often sneak it in!

I did an informal survey of ice cream and found it in EVERY BRAND except the organic stuff and Haagen Dazs! WOW! This included the expensive brands with their cool marketing containers!

Don't let the food industry fool you - they KNOW high fructose corn syrup is harmful, despite those pitiful commercials put out by the Corn Refiners Association that almost everyone scoffs at (thank goodness).

So, WHY WHY WHY do they keep poisoning our food with the stuff?

Simple...... MONEY!

High fructose is dirt cheap compared to real sugar (table sugar/corn sugar/beet sugar)!

This is due in large part to the Federal Government subsidizing corn growers to the tune of $40 BILLION a year! They can sell it cheap because it doesn't cost them much to grow it with all that federal money supplementing the process. Plus, the Government has placed tariffs on the import of cane sugar.

There are some other advantages too such as being easy to transport and work with since it is a liquid. It also keeps preservative cookies, as I call them, and cakes moist.... BUT by far the biggest factor is the bottom line.... food manufacturers want a high profit margin.

If want to cure diabetes, you need to eliminate this stuff from your diet entirely. This means eliminating most processed foods (unless they are labeled as organic) and reading food labels very carefully before you buy. You also need a detailed guide on what else you should be eliminating and what else you should be adding to your diet. Here is the best resource I have found for this. It contains information you will not find anywhere else on the net and it will tell you how to cure diabetes.

Does High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) Cause Diabetes?

There are several ways to answer the question of whether or not high fructose corn syrup, also known as HFCS, causes type 2 diabetes.

First, we know there is a striking correlation between the dramatic rise of type 2 diabetes since the 1970's and the increased consumption of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in the United States and other industrialized nations.

Contrary to the commercials paid for and put out by the Corn Refiners Association, high fructose corn syrup and table sugar are NOT alike, i.e. the phrase the commercial says, "sugar is sugar" is DEAD WRONG.

Table sugar is metabolized very differently than high fructose corn syrup. Fructose itself is a natural sugar and is the primary and natural sugar found in fruit but it is found in MUCH lower quantity in fruit than the amount of high fructose corn syrup found in sodas and many processed foods such as snack foods, sauces, condiments, and ketchup. Plus, the chemical structure of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is highly altered by industrial processes and behaves very differently in in the human body than does natural fructose (see below).

There is also a difference in the way sucrose or "table sugar" and natural fructose is metabolized. When fructose is eaten, it is immediately shuttled off to the liver. The liver immediately converts the fructose to fat which is probably one of the main reasons belly fat is on the rise. On the other hand, if you eat a small amount of sucrose it is immediately burned for energy. It is not stored as fat unless you eat too much.

Many large scale studies have linked this increase in high fructose corn syrup consumption to the rise in insulin resistance, i.e. type 2 diabetes. For example, a 2008 study by a group of scientists from the University of Florida at Gainsville studying non-alcolholic fatty liver disease found, "...the increased consumption of high fructose corn syrup, primarily in the form of soft drinks, is linked with complications of the insulin resistance syndrome." Most of these large scale studies incorporate data from the National Health Institute which is a mega database.

Similar links between the development of type 2 diabetes (insulin resistance) and the intake of high fructose has been demonstrated in laboratory animals through highly controlled experiments. Of course, we can't officially conduct experiments directly on human beings but in effect we have been doing so since the 1970's when there was a dramatic increase in the consumption of high fructose corn syrup across the vast majority of the population and it has been increasing ever since. I think the mega data speaks for itself. If you look at a graph, the increase in the consumption of high fructose corn syrup follows right along with the rise of type 2 diabetes - it is a perfect match.

In table sugar (sucrose), i.e. cane sugar or beet sugar, the fructose molecule is tightly bonded to the glucose molecule to form the compound sucrose molecule. However, in high fructose corn syrup the fructose molecule and the glucose molecule are NOT tightly bound together so the fructose heads directly to the liver to be converted to fat. So, don't let anyone fool you. Although two sugars may be called the same thing, "sugar" as the misleading commercials say, they may not be chemically the same at all. If they are different chemically, they are metabolized very differently.

There are many other effects of the artificially produced high fructose corn syrup that could be contributing to its ill effects but we just don't understand them fully yet. For example, it has been shown that beverages sweetened with high fructose corn syrup contain high levels of reactive carbonyls. These are highest in carbonated beverages but they are also found in fruit juices, teas, and other drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.

What is the connection between these reactive carbonyls and  diabetes?

Well, so far we know for sure that diabetics have very significantly elevated reactive carbonyls in their blood stream compared to people who do not have diabetes.

Basically, I think any time you monkey around with a natural food, take it into an industrial lab and create an artificial food out of it through a radical chemical and temperature industrial process, you are apt to get a product that is not good for the human body!

If you are truly serious about reversing your diabetes, you need the right information. You need to know what foods you need to completely eliminate from your diet and which ones (including supplements) you need to add to your diet. The best source of information I have found, an incredible comprehensive source, is this one and I highly encourage you to check it out thoroughly.

How Much Trans Fat Is Safe For Diabetics To Eat

Yesterday, I posted a simplified explanation of how trans fat causes diabetes. Today I want to address a related topic.

Many times I've heard people ask questions like, "how much trans fat can I eat?" and "how much trans fat is safe to eat?" I also hear people say things like, "oh...a little trans fat won't hurt you..." and "just eat trans fat in moderation and you'll be ok." These kinds of comments make me cringe and I want to explain why.

Trans fat is literally like eating poison!

Yes, I said POISON!

Would you eat draino in moderation? How about arsenic? How about anything with a skull and cross bones poison symbol on it? When something is poison, you shouldn't eat ANY of it - none!

Trans fat is not like indulging in a piece of decadent cheesecake occasionally or a delicious piece of fudge. It's not like having a scoop of your favorite ice cream. Eating trans fat is not like eating some high fat bacon or a half a rack of ribs for a special occasion. A high fat latte once a month isn't going to hurt you. All of these rich foods are harmful if you eat too much of them and/or you eat them too often but they aren't going to hurt you if you eat them in moderation. They are NOT poison, they are just rich foods that should be only eaten occasionally. Trans fat on the other hand is POISON and even a little bit will hurt you.

Do you see the difference - poison vs really rich food that should be eaten in moderation?

Every time you eat trans fat, it gets substituted into your cell membranes where healthy omega-3 should be and in some cells it stays there 7 years! That's a sizable chuck of your life where that trans fat is there in your cell membranes reaping havoc - causing insulin resistance, aka type 2 diabetes. AND... it accumulates!

Trans fat is an artificial food, a toxic one, not found in nature and the human body is not designed to deal with it. It is literally POISON to the human body. On the other hand, the human body can handle an occasional burst of sugar and animal (natural) fat. In fact, a healthy human body is well equipped to deal with feast and famine. However, a healthy human body is not equipped to deal with an industrial toxin cooked up in the lab of some corporate empire that cares much more about profit than human health!

You should avoid trans fat (hydrogenated anything on the food label and over heating oils) completely with no exceptions. You will find it impossible to reverse your diabetes naturally if you don't!

For more detailed information on what you should avoid eating (and what you should eat more of) if you want to reverse your diabetes, please go to this site and check it out thoroughly. It is the most comprehensive source I've seen on how to cure diabetes naturally.

How Trans Fat Causes Diabetes - Simplified Version

The other night I was trying to explain how trans fat causes diabetes to a friend who was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes. After some discussion, she said I went into too much detail which made it too hard to understand. That put me to thinking that I needed to figure out how to simplify the topic so that it is more easily understood.

First, I should make it clear that trans fat causes type 2 diabetes, not type 1 diabetes.

To understand how trans fat causes type 2 diabetes, it is important first to understand that all fats are made of long chains of carbon atoms with hydrogen atoms attached to the sides of these chains. Depending on how the hydrogen atoms are arranged, the chains of carbons will either kink up or lie flat - this is a really important point as it is the key to how trans fat causes diabetes (see below).

In their natural state, fats are kinked because of the way hydrogen atoms are positioned - they are in what is called the "cis position" (same side of the carbon chain). However, food manufacturers often change this natural "cis" (kinked) position by a process called hydrogenation which involves extremely high temperatures. Hydrogenation denatures the fat molecules and the hydrogens re-orient into what is called the "trans position" (opposide sides of the carbon chain) to create what we called "trans fat."

Because trans fat lies flat and does not kink (because of the artificially produced symmetry of the hydrogen atoms along the carbon atom chain), the molecules can stack much more tightly together than does the natural "cis" fat. This means that a natural oil that is a liquid at room temperature can become a solid if hydrogenated because the fat molecules are stacked much closer together (the atoms in a solid are packed more tightly together than the atoms in a liquid). This is how margerine and crisco (both solids at room temperature) is created out of a hydrogenated liquid oil. The food manufacturers like to turn cheap oils into solids so they can increase their profit margins. Plus, fats in the trans position don't turn rancid so the shelf life is much longer - which is another reason the profit driven food manufacturers love to hydrogenate oils - it increases their bottom line.

Now back to how trans fat causes diabetes...

Omega-3 is a natural fat that is in the cis formation like all natural fats. Omega-3 fats are VERY IMPORTANT building blocks of the cell membrane in all cells in the human body. Without omega-3 in our cell membranes we would not live very long.

In a healthy cell membrane, the omega-3 is in the cis (kinked) position which allows the insulin hormone to very easily travel through the cell membrane. However, when we eat trans fat found in many types of processed modern food, this artificial trans fat becomes substituted into the cell membrane where the natural omega-3 should be. This creates a very "stiff" cell membrane - a very unhealthy cell membrane - which makes it much more difficult for insulin to get through the cell membrane -- this is how trans fat can cause insulin resistance, i.e. type 2 diabetes.

Insulin is the hormone that transports glucose from the bloodstream after we eat across the cell membrane to inside of the cell. In other words, if insulin can't do its job, glucose builds up in the blood stream and we get high blood sugar and we are not able to metabolize our food efficiently. This means a diabetic can literally starve when they are consuming food.

When the cell membrane becomes partially impermeable to insulin, it is said that we are "insulin resistant." In other words, insulin can't work efficiently with an unhealthy membrane where some of the healthy omega-3 fat is replaced by unhealthy and unnatural trans fat. The more trans fat that gets substituted into the cell membrane where the omega-3 should be, the more difficult it becomes for insulin to transport the glucose across the cell membrane and the worse the insulin resistance becomes.

I hope that made it less complicated!

If you want to reverse diabetes, it is absolutely essential that you eliminate ALL trans fat from your diet. To learn more about how to do this and also learn about other foods that you should eliminate, please visit this site and listen carefully to the entire video. You'll be given instructions how how to get all of the information you.

Are You Ready To Cure Your Diabetes?

It is interesting to figure out what separates those who end up curing their own diabetes from those who fail to do so. I say interesting because if you are starting to fall into the latter category, you can turn that around!

I come in contact with lots of people who are trying to cure their own diabetes and I can see some very definite recurring trends. Here are some of my own personal observations on people who fail compared to those who succeed:

1. They don't REALLY believe it can be done.

The mantra of traditional medicine is that diabetes can't be cured naturally and can only be "controlled" through medication. Think about this too. There's lots of money to be made if this is true. With 35% - 50% of the population expected to have diabetes in the near future, pharmaceutical companies, medical supply companies, and medical professionals are poised to make A LOT of money - especially if there is no cure and diabetics are expected to just stay on costly medication/treatment for life. The media makes a lot of money from selling advertisements for diabetics too. On the other hand, there's virtually no money to be made if diabetes can be cured. Now, I can tell you from personal experience that type 2 diabetes can be cured completely (see my links on the side for proof). I also personally know many others who have cured their diabetes. However, you aren't going to find the cure by going to a traditional doctor.

2. They don't have ALL the information they need.

The cure for diabetes does NOT involve one single strategy. Yes, I can simply more than 50% of it in this way: completely eliminate artificial foods from your diet 100%. However, even here you need some details about how to do this. You need comprehensive information like this that is going to give you ALL the information you need. It is easy to improve the situation by just surfing around the web for information but to CURE your diabetes, you really do need a comprehensive guide.

3. They are looking for one easy magic bullet.

Most people are looking for one pill or one food or one exercise or .... etc, etc... that is going to cure their diabetes and honestly it isn't this simple -- believe me, I wish it was. There is no ONE thing that is going to cure your diabetes. It's not hard to do but it isn't as simple as doing ONE thing. Again, you need a comprehensive guide like this one that is going to give you all the different steps you need to follow.

Foods Containing Probiotics Other Than Yogurt and Kefir

I've been posting a series of articles on probiotics for diabetics and why it is important to include probiotics in your diet if you want to reverse diabetes. Please look back at these articles for more information. When most people think of foods with probiotics, they immediately think of yogurt and kefir. However, many other foods also contain healthy probiotics and it is easy to incorporate these delicious foods into your diet.

It's important to understand the difference between foods with LIVE probiotics and those that may have been processed with live cultures but later during processing were heated to the point that the probiotics are no longer living. For the benefit, you want LIVE probiotics. If you buy a product that contains "cultured milk" that is then pasteurized, it no longer has LIVE cultures. The same is true for fermented foods. If a food is fermented with microorganisms but then later heated to high temperatures, it will no longer contain LIVE cultures.

Many other dairy products contain probiotics. Sour cream is a good example, especially if you buy a high quality organic brand. Sour cream is an excellent base for many home made salad dressings, it's great on eggs/omlets, soups, beans, casseroles, etc.... I also like a big dollop on baked salmon. Like other probiotics, it is best if you do NOT cook it as you want to keep those healthy bugs alive. Putting a dollop on warm food though shouldn't kill too many. Some cheeses also contain probiotics. Blue cheese is a great example and there are a number of salads and salad dressings that blue cheese dresses up! Try also to by raw cheeses as these will have more probiotics.

Raw milk is another excellent source of probiotics. In fact, it has more probiotics than any type of yogurt. Some people also culture raw milk into a substance that is very much like yogurt. This  multiples the probiotics in the raw milk.

Kim chi and other lacto-fermented vegetables is another excellent source of probiotics. Many natural food stores now offer locally produced kim chi. You may find some at your local Asian store as well. Another good example of a fermented food that contains LIVE probiotics is meso in all its various forms. There are MANY varieties of meso soup (contains aspergillus oryzae) so if you try one and don't like it, be sure to give it a second, third, fourth, etc chance! It can be made from fermented fish/seafood, fermented beans, fermented barley, fermented mushrooms, fermented rice, fermented kelp/seaweed, and various combinations of all of these. Other great fermented foods that contain probiotics include some varieties of sour kraut (lactobacillus, pediococcus), natto (fermented soybeans), and tempeh (another fermented soy bean product).

Be sure to check out this information for reversing diabetes information. It contains scientifically backed comprehensive information on how to cure type 2 diabetes!

Probiotics For Diabetics - More Important Information

Hi Guys. I want to get back to the topic of probiotics for diabetics. I've been hearing some wonderful anecdotes lately about diabetics who were struggling to cure their diabetes naturally until they added a healthy dose of probiotics to their diet.

If you are new to this, recommend you read my article entitled, "Probiotics For Diabetics - Yogurt Vs Kefir."

In general, if you are a newly diagnosed diabetic, chances are very high that your natural flora is totally out of balance. I highly recommend you go and buy a high quality organic kefir and drink/eat at least 1/2 cup daily for 2 or 3 weeks to get your system back on track. After this, I'd recommend a small kefir every 1-2 weeks with yogurt in between.

Here are some of the healthy "bugs" you want in your system:

Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Lactobacillus bulgaricus
Lactobacillus casei
Lactobacillus fermentum
Streptococcus lactis
Streptococcus thermophilus
Bifidobacterium bifidus

However, keep in mind that kefir has even more variety and the the strains are more virulent and will help to not only maintain the flora in your guy but actually colonize your gut if you are lacking.

Now, here's another really important point about what to look for on the label when buying probiotics:

There is a BIG difference between:

pasteurized cultured milk/cream


cultured pasteurized milk/cream

You do NOT want milk to be pasteurized AFTER it is cultured as this will kill some or even all of the living probiotics!!

So, you want cultured pasteurized milk, NOT pasteurized cultured milk. Read your ingredient labels very carefully!

Also, don't buy ultra-pasteurized milk at all ever as this means the temperatures used are even higher and many of the nutrients will be denatured. Food manufacturers like ULTRApasturized because the shelf life is longer and they make more money. I've been noticing more and more ORGANIC dairy products that are ULTRApasturized. I avoid them all!

Probiotics should be part of your diet if you are trying to reverse your diabetes. However, there are other foods that you need to eliminate (not carbs) and others you need to add that are just as important, if not more important, than probiotics. The simplest way to know for sure you are taking all the necessary steps is to get the information here.

Together, we can cure all type 2 diabetes which didn't even exist before the 1920's!! Please help me spread the word.

Diabetes Cured - Happy AC1 Result!

Sorry I have posted in the last several days - this last week has been busy busy - but I have some really happy news to report. My AC1 test came back as 5.3! Happy dance!

So, before I get back to writing about probiotics for diabetics, I wanted to share this good news with you and tell you again that it is possible to cure diabetes. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise because I am living proof that you can cure diabetes. You do not have to be on medicine for the rest of your life to "control your blood sugar" as is prescribed by traditional medicine.

I also want to encourage you to get this diabetes reversal information because it will make things so much easier for you to be able to cure your diabetes. The right information is the key and this information is backed by scientific research. Curing diabetes isn't simply a matter of reducing carbs/calories and exercising as so many online reports would have you believe. In fact, type 2 diabetics actually need to eat more carbs, not less.
