Diabetes Alternative Treatments

Diet is the cause and cure of type 2 diabetes.  By following a strict starch based diet low in fat, type 2 diabetes can be cured in a very large majority of cases.  Fat inhibits the action of insulin in the body.  This is compounded when there is low fiber in the diet which allows glucose to pass quickly from the gut into the bloodstream. This depressed action of insulin (due to fat) plus fast passage of sugar (glucose) into the blood makes the blood sugar level go up, up, up.  Americans get 47% of their calories from fat!  We eat an unbelievable amount of fat.  It should be no more than 10%.  The human body did not evolve having to process that much fat and so diabetes is the result.



Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are rare in parts of the world that eat a low fat starch based diet (starch comes from grains and potatoes and these are supplemented with vegetables and fruits).  In this diet all animal products such as meat, fish, dairy and eggs are strictly eliminated. Eat all the carbs you want.

For those suffering with type 2 diabetes (adult diabetes) a change in diet will allow 75 percent of these persons to stop all insulin and more than 95 percent to stop all oral anti-diabetic pills.  The small number who will continue to require medication can be treated with small doses of insulin.

Cow’s milk and all milk products are the cause of childhood or type 1 diabetes.  Milk causes an auto-immune response in the body with acts to direct antibodies to the child’s pancreas.  The immune system then attacks the cells of the pancreas destroying it.  Unable to produce insulin, type 1 diabetes is the result.  Once the cells of the pancreas have been destroyed, they will not grow back.  However, those who have this condition will benefit greatly by adopting a low fat starch based diet.  In the countries in Africa and Asia which still eat a starch based diet, it is uncommon for the few there who get diabetes to have lingering complications such as heart disease, blindness, strokes and gangrene (requiring amputations).  Whereas these complications are common among type 1 diabetics who eat the rich western high fat diet.

Lipoic acid as a diabetes alternative treatment

One of the best home remedies for Diabetes is lipoic acid (aka thioctic acid).  This is a natural antioxidant that is found in our bodies.  Lipoic acid is the most important thing you can take to treat diabetes and other blood sugar problems.  Our daily food has very small amounts of lipoic acid in the form of lipoyllysine.  It does not occur in our bodies in its free form.  While diet and exercise are the cure for type 2 diabetes, Lipoic acid can help to a great degree.  The scientific research on lipoic acid and its effect on diabetes and blood sugar problems is enormous and well documented.  Anyone who has passed the age of 40 should consider taking lipoic acid as part of their daily supplement program because of the powerful anti-oxidant properties.  400 mg a day is good for most people and you don’t want to take more than that.  In clinical trials, dosages of up to 1000 mg daily have been used but only for the short term.  Lipoic acid is safe, non-toxic and inexpensive.  You can buy lipoic acid from Young Again and while you are there have them send you the free book The Natural Diabetes Cure.  It's free if you order anything.  You can also download the book The Natural Diabetes Cure as a pdf file for free.

A good diabetes home remedy is to take 400 mcg of chromium and vanadium every day.  These trace minerals make insulin work better and keeps your blood sugar down.  Chromium keeps the blood sugar levels stable by enhancing proper insulin usage in the body.  This is good for anybody with diabetes, hypoglycemia and other blood sugar problems.
