If you are an American diabetic, your physician will never tell you
that most diabetes is curable. In fact, if you even mention the cure
word around him, he will likely become upset and irrational. His medical
school training only allows him to respond to the word treatment. For
him, the cure word does not exist. Diabetes, in its modern epidemic
form, is a curable disease and has been for at least 40 years. In 2001,
the most recent year for which figures US figures are posted, 934,550
Americans died from out of control symptoms of this disease.
Your physician will also never tell you that at one time strokes, both
ischemic and hemorrhagic, heart failure due to neuropathy as well as
both ischemic and hemorrhagic coronary events, obesity, atherosclerosis,
elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides,
impotence, retinopathy, renal failure, liver failure, polycystic ovary
syndrome, elevated blood sugar, systemic candida, impaired carbohydrate
metabolism, poor wound healing, impaired fat metabolism, peripheral
neuropathy as well as many more of today's disgraceful epidemic disorders
were once well understood to often be but symptoms of diabetes.
If you contract diabetes and depend upon orthodox medical treatment,
sooner or later you will experience one or more of its symptoms as the
disease rapidly worsens. It is now common practice to refer to these
symptoms as if they were separable independent diseases with separate
unrelated proprietary treatments provided by competing medical specialists.
It is true that many of these symptoms can and sometimes do result from
other causes; however, it is also true that this fact has been used
to disguise the causative role of diabetes and to justify expensive,
ineffective treatments for these symptoms.
Epidemic Type II Diabetes is curable. By the time you get to the end
of this article you are going to know that. You're going to know why
it isn't routinely being cured. And, you're going to know how to cure
it. You are also probably going to be angry at what a handful of greedy
people have surreptitiously done to the entire orthodox medical community
and to its trusting patients.
The diabetes industry
Today's diabetes industry is a massive community that has grown step
by step from its dubious origins in the early twentieth century. In
the last eighty years it has become enormously successful at shutting
out competitive voices that attempt to point out the fraud involved
in modern diabetes treatment. It has matured into a religion. And, like
all religions, it depends heavily upon the faith of the believer. So
successful has it become that it verges on blasphemy to suggest that,
in most cases, the kindly high priest with the stethoscope draped prominently
around his neck is a charlatan and a fraud. In the large majority of
cases he has never cured a single case of diabetes in his entire medical
The financial and political influence of this medical community has
almost totally subverted the original intent of our regulatory agencies.
They routinely approve death dealing ineffective drugs with insufficient
testing. Former commissioner of the FDA, Dr. Herbert Ley, in testimony
before a US Senate hearing, commented "People think the FDA is
protecting them. It isn't. What the FDA is doing and what the public
thinks its doing are as different as night and day."
The financial and political influence of this medical community dominates
our entire medical insurance industry.Although this is beginning to
change, in America, it is still difficult to find employer group medical
insurance to cover effective alternative medical treatments. Orthodox
coverage is standard in all states. Alternative medicine is not. For
example there are only 1400 licensed naturopaths in 11 states compared
to over 3.4 million orthodoxlicensees in 50 states.
Generally, only approved treatments from licensed credentialed practitioners
are insurable. This, in effect, neatly creates a special kind of money
that can only be spent within the orthodox medical and drug industry.
No other industry in the world has been able to manage the politics
of convincing people to accept so large a part of their pay in a form
that does not allow them to spend it on health care as they see fit.
Insurance money can only be spent within an industry that has banned
the cure word from its vocabulary.
The financial and political influence of this medical community completely
controls virtually every diabetes publication in the country. Many diabetes
publications are subsidized by ads for diabetes supplies. No diabetes
editor is going to allow the truth to be printed in his magazine. This
is why the diabetic only pays about 1/4 to 1/3 of the cost of printing
the magazine he depends upon for accurate information. The rest is subsidized
by ads purchased by diabetes manufacturers with a vested commercial
interest in preventing diabetics from curing their diabetes. When looking
for a magazine that tells the truth about diabetes, look first to see
if it is full of ads for diabetes supplies.
And then there are the various associations that solicit annual donations
to find a cure for their proprietary disease. Every year they promise
a cure is just around the corner; just send more money. Some of these
very same associations have been clearly implicated in providing advice
that promotes the progress of diabetes in their trusting supporters.
For example, for years they heavily promoted exchange diets 
which are in fact scientifically worthless, as anyone who has ever tried
to use them quickly finds out. They have ridiculed the use of glycemic
tables which are actually very helpful to the diabetic. They promoted
the use of margarine as heart healthy long after it was well understood
that margarine causes diabetes and promotes heart failure. 
Why everyone expects that these tax free associations will really self
destruct by eliminating their proprietary disease and thereby destroy
their only source of income is truly amazing. If people ever wake up
to the cure for diabetes that has been suppressed for forty years, these
associations will soon be out of business. But until then, they nonetheless
continue to need our support.
For forty years medical research has consistently shown, with increasing
clarity, that type II diabetes is a degenerative disease directly caused
by an engineered food supply that is focused on profit instead of health.
Although the diligent can readily glean this information from a wealth
of medical research literature, it is generally otherwise unavailable.
Certainly this information has been, and remains, largely unavailable
in the medical schools that train our retail doctors.
Prominent among the causative agents in our modern diabetes epidemic
are the engineered fats and oils sold in today's supermarkets.
The first step to curing diabetes is to stop believing the lie that
the disease is incurable.
In 1922, three Canadian Nobel prize winners, Banting, Best and Macleod
were successful in saving the life of afourteen year old diabetic girl
in Toronto General Hospital with injectable insulin. 
Eli Lilly was licensed to manufacture this new wonder drug and the medical
community basked in the glory of a job well done.
It wasn't until 1933 that rumors about a new rogue diabetes surfaced.
This was in a paper presented by Joslyn, Dublin and Marks and printed
in the American Journal of Medical Sciences. This paper "Studies
on Diabetes Mellitus" , discussed
the emergence of a major US epidemic of a disease which looked very
much like the diabetes of the early 1920's only it did not respond to
the wonder drug, insulin. Even worse, sometimes insulin treatment killed
This new disease became known as Insulin Resistant Diabetes because
it had the elevated blood sugar symptom of diabetes, but responded poorly
to insulin therapy. Many physicians had considerable success in treatment
of this disease by diet. A great deal was learned about the relationship
between diet and diabetes in the 1930's and 1940's.
Diabetes, which had a per capita incidence of 0.0028% at the turn of
the century, had by 1933, zoomed 1000% in the US to become a disease
faced by many doctors . This disease,
under a variety of aliases, was destined to go on to wreck the health
of over half of the American population and to incapacitate almost 20%
by the 1990's. 
In 1950 the medical community became able to perform serum insulin assays.
This quickly revealed that the disease wasn't classical diabetes. This
new disease was characterized by sufficient, often excessive, blood
insulin levels. The problem was that the insulin was ineffective; it
did not reduce blood sugar. But, since the disease had been known as
diabetes for almost twenty years it was renamed Type II Diabetes. This
was to distinguish it from the earlier Type 1 Diabetes which was due
to insufficient insulin production by the pancreas.
Had the dietary insights of the previous 20 years dominated the medical
scene from this point and into the late 1960's, diabetes would have
become widely recognized as curable instead of merely treatable. Unfortunately
this didn't happen and so, in 1950, a search was launched for another
wonder drug to deal with the Type II Diabetes problem.
Cure vs treatment
This new ideal wonder drug would be, like insulin, effective in remitting
obvious adverse symptoms of the disease, but not effective in curing
the underlying disease. Thus, it would be needed continually for the
remaining life of the patient. It would have to be patentable; that
is, it could not be a natural medication because these are non-patentable.
Like insulin, it would be highly profitable to manufacture and distribute.
Mandatory government approvals would be required to stimulate the use
by physicians as a prescription drug. Testing required for these approvals
would have to be enormously expensive to prevent other, unapproved,
medications from becoming competitive.
This is the origin of the classic medical protocol of "treating
the symptoms". By doing this, both the drug company and the doctor
could prosper in business and the patient, while not being cured of
his disease, was sometimes temporarily relieved of some of his symptoms.
Additionally, natural medications that actually cured disease, would
have to be suppressed. The more effective they were, the more they would
need to be suppressed and their proponents jailed as quacks. After all,
it wouldn't do to have some cheap effective natural medication cure
disease in a capital intensive monopoly market specifically designed
to treat symptoms without curing disease. Often the natural substance
really did cure disease. This is why the force of law was used to drive
the natural, often superior, medicines from the market place, to remove
the cure word from the medical vocabulary and to totally undermine the
very concept of a free marketplace in the medical business.
Now it is clear why the cure word is so vigorously suppressed by law.
The FDA has extensive Orwellian regulations that prohibit the use of
the cure word to describe any competing medicine or natural substance.
It is precisely because many natural substances do actually both cure
and prevent disease that this word has become so frightening to the
drug and orthodox medical community.
The commercial value of symptoms
After this redesign of drug development policy to focus on ameliorating
symptoms rather than curing disease, it became necessary to reinvent
the way drugs were marketed. This was done in 1949 in the midst of a
major epidemic of insulin resistant diabetes.
In 1949, the US medical community reclassified the symptoms of diabetes,
 along with many other disease symptoms,
into diseases in their own right. With this reclassification as the
new basis for diagnosis, competing medical specialty groups quickly
seized upon related groups of symptoms as their own proprietary symptom
set. Thus the heart specialist, endocrinologist, allergist, kidney specialist,
and many others started to treat the symptoms for which they felt responsible.
As the underlying cause of the disease was widely ignored, all focus
on actually curing anything was completely lost. By this new focus on
treating symptoms, instead of curing disease, disease was now allowed
to run rampant without any effective check on its progress. While not
a very smart idea from the patients viewpoint, it did succeed in making
the American medical community amongst the wealthiest in the world because
of the continuing high volume of repeat business that it promoted
Heart failure for example, which had previously been understood to often
be but a symptom of diabetes, now became a disease not directly connected
to diabetes. It became fashionable to think that diabetes "increased
cardio-vascular risk." The causal role of a failed blood sugar
control system in heart failure became obscured. Consistent with the
new medical paradigm, none of the treatments offered by the heart specialist
actually cures, or is even intended to cure, their proprietary disease.
For example, the three year survival rate for bypass surgery is almost
exactly the same as if no surgery was undertaken. 
Today over half of the people in America suffer from one or more symptoms
of this disease. In its beginnings, it has become well known to physicians
as Type II Diabetes, Insulin Resistant Diabetes, Insulin Resistance,
Adult Onset Diabetes, or more rarely Hyperinsulinemia. According to
the American Heart Association, almost 50% of Americans suffer from
one or more symptoms of this disease. One third of our population is
morbidly obese. Half of our population is overweight. Type II Diabetes,
also called Adult Onset Diabetes, now appears routinely in six year
Many of our degenerative diseases can be traced to a massive failure
of our endocrine system that was well known to the physicians of the
1930's as Insulin Resistant Diabetes. This basic underlying disorder
is known to be a derangement of the blood sugar control system by badly
engineered fats and oils. It is exacerbated and complicated by the widespread
lack of other essential nutrition that the body needs to cope with the
metabolic consequences of these poisons.
All fats and oils are not equal. Some are healthy and beneficial; many,
commonly available in the supermarket, are poisonous. The health distinction
is not between saturated and unsaturated, as the fats and oils industry
would have us believe. Many saturated oils and fats are highly beneficial;
many unsaturated oils are highly poisonous. The important health distinction
is between natural and engineered. There exists great dishonesty in
advertising in the fats and oils industry. It is aimed at creating a
market for cheap junk oils such as soy, cottonseed and rape seed oil.
With an informed and aware public these oils would have no market at
all and the US, and indeed the world, would have far less diabetes.
Epidemiological Life style link
As early as 1901, efforts had been made to manufacture and sell food
products by the use of automated factory machinery because of the immense
potential profits that were possible. Most of the early efforts failed
because people were inherently suspicious of food that wasn't farm fresh
and because the technology was poor. As long as people were prosperous,
suspicious food products made little headway. Crisco, 
the artificial shortening, was once given away free in 2 1/2 lb cans
in an unsuccessful effort to influence the US wives to trust and buy
the product in preference to lard.
Margarine was introduced and was bitterly opposed by the dairy states.
With the advent of the depression of the 1930's, margarine, Crisco and
a host of other refined and hydrogenated products began to make significant
penetration into the US food markets. Support for dairy opposition to
margarine faded during WW II because there wasn't enough butter for
both the civilian population and the needs of the military. 
At this point, the dairy industry having lost much support, simply accepted
a diluted market share and concentrated on supplying the military.
Flax oils and fish oils, which were common in the stores and considered
a dietary staple before the American population became diseased, have
disappeared from the shelf. The last supplier of flax oil to the major
distribution chains was Archer Daniel's Midland and they stopped producing
and supplying the product in 1950.
More recently, one of the most important of the remaining genuinely
beneficial fats was subjected to a massive media disinformation campaign
that portrayed it as a saturated fat that causes heart failure. As a
result, it has virtually disappeared from the supermarket shelves. Thus
was coconut oil removed from the food chain and replaced with soy oil,
cottonseed oil and rape seed oil. 
Our parents would never have swapped a fine healthy oil like coconut
oil for these cheap junk oils. It was shortly after this successful
media blitz that the US populace lost its war on fat. For many years
coconut oil had been one of our most effective dietary weight control
The history of the engineered adulteration of our once clean food supply
exactly parallels the rise of the epidemic of diabetes and hyperinsulinemia
now sweeping the US as well as much of the rest of the world.
The second step to a cure for this disease epidemic is to stop believing
the lie that our food supply is safe and nutritious.
Nature of the disease
Diabetes is classically diagnosed as a failure of the body to properly
metabolize carbohydrates. Its defining symptom is a high blood glucose
level. Type 1 Diabetes results from insufficient insulin production
by the pancreas. Type 2 Diabetes results from ineffective insulin. In
both types, the blood glucose level remains elevated. Neither insufficient
insulin nor ineffective insulin can limit post prandial (after eating)
blood sugar to the normal range. In established cases of Type 2 Diabetes,
these elevated blood sugar levels are often preceded by and accompanied
by chronically elevated insulin levels and by serious distortions of
other endocrine hormonal markers.
The ineffective insulin is no different from effective insulin. Its
ineffectiveness lies in the failure of our cell population to respond
to it. It is not the result of any biochemical defect in the insulin
itself. Therefore, it is appropriate to note that this disease is a
disease that affects almost every cell in the seventy trillion or so
cells of our body. All of these cells are dependent upon the food that
we eat for the raw materials that they need for self repair and maintenance.
The classification of diabetes as a failure to metabolize carbohydrates
is a traditional classification that originated in the early 19th century
when little was known about metabolic diseases or about metabolic processes.
 Today, with our increased knowledge
of metabolic processes, it would appear quite appropriate to define
Type 2 Diabetes more fundamentally as a failure of the body to properly
metabolize fats and oils. This failure results in a loss of effectiveness
of insulin and in the consequent failure to metabolize carbohydrates.
Unfortunately, much medical insight into this matter, except at the
research level, remains hampered by its 19th century legacy.
Thus Type II Diabetes and its early hyperinsulinemic symptoms are whole
body symptoms of this basic cellular failure to properly metabolize
glucose. Each cell of our body, for reasons which are becoming clearer,
find themselves unable to transport glucose from the blood stream to
their interior. The glucose then either remains in the blood stream,
is stored as body fat or as glycogen, or is otherwise disposed of in
It appears that when insulin binds to a cell membrane receptor, it initiates
a complex cascade of biochemical reactions inside the cell. This causes
a class of glucose transporters known as GLUT 4 molecules to leave their
parking area inside the cell and travel to the inside surface of the
plasma cell membrane. When in the membrane, they migrate to special
areas of the membrane called caveolae areas. 
There, by another series of biochemical reactions, they identify and
hook up with glucose molecules and transport them into the interior
of the cell by a process called endocytosis. Within the cells interior,
this glucose is then burned as fuel by the mitochondria to produce energy
to power cellular activity.
Thus these GLUT 4 transporters lower glucose in the blood stream by
transporting it out of the bloodstream into all of our bodily cells.
Many of the molecules involved in these glucose and insulin mediated
pathways are lipids, that is they are fatty acids. A healthy plasma
cell membrane, now known to be an active player in the glucose scenario,
contains a complement of cis type w=3 unsaturated fatty acids. 
This makes the membrane relatively fluid and slippery. When these cis
fatty acids are chronically unavailable because of our diet, trans fatty
acids and short and medium chain saturated fatty acids are substituted
in the cell membrane. These substitutions make the cellular membrane
stiffer and more sticky and inhibit the glucose transport mechanism.
Thus, in the absence of sufficient cis omega 3 fatty acids in our diet,
these fatty acid substitutions take place, themobility of the GLUT 4
transporters is diminished, the interior biochemistry of the cell is
changed and glucose remains elevated in the bloodstream.
Elsewhere in the body, the pancreas secretes excess insulin, the liver
manufactures fat from the excess sugar, the adipose cells store excess
fat, the body goes into a high urinary mode, insufficient cellular energy
is available for bodily activity and the entire endocrine system becomes
distorted. Eventually pancreatic failure occurs, body weight plummets
and a diabetic crisis is precipitated.
Although there remains much work to be done to fully elucidate all of
the steps in all of these pathways, this clearly marks the beginning
of a biochemical explanation for the known epidemiological relationship
between cheap engineered dietary fats and oils and the onset of Type
Orthodox medical treatment
After the diagnosis of diabetes, modern orthodox medical treatment consists
of either oral hypoglycemic agents or insulin.
In 1955, oral hypoglycemic drugs were introduced. Currently available
oral hypoglycemic agents fall into five classifications according to
their biophysical mode of action. 
These classes are:
Biguanides Glucosidase inhibitors Meglitinides Sulfonylureas Thiazolidinediones
The biguanides lower blood sugar in three ways. They inhibit the normal
release, by the liver, of its glucose stores, they interfere with intestinal
absorption of glucose from ingested carbohydrates and they are said
to increase peripheral uptake of glucose.
The glucosidase inhibitors are designed to inhibit the amylase enzymes
produced by our pancreas and which are essential to the digestion of
carbohydrates. The theory is that if the digestion of carbohydrates
is inhibited the blood sugar cannot be elevated.
The meglitinides are designed to stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin
in a patient that likely already has an elevated level of insulin in
their bloodstream. Only rarely does the doctor even measure insulin
levels. This drug is frequently prescribed without any knowledge of
preexisting insulin levels. The fact that elevated insulin levels are
almost as damaging as elevated glucose levels is widely ignored.
The sulfonylureas are another pancreatic stimulant class designed to
stimulate the production of insulin. Serum insulin determinations are
rarely made by the doctor before prescribing this drug. This drug is
often prescribed for type II diabetics, many of whom already have elevated
ineffective insulin. These drugs are notorious for causing hypoglycemia
as a side effect.
The thiazolidinediones are famous for causing liver cancer. One of them,
Rezulin, was approved in the USA through devious political infighting
but failed to get approval in England because it was known to cause
liver cancer. The first doctor that had responsibility to approve it
at the FDA refused to do so. It was only after he was replaced by a
more compliant official that Rezulin gained approval by the FDA. It
went on to kill well over 100 diabetes patients and cripple many others
before the fight to get it off the market was finally won. Rezulin was
designed to stimulate the uptake of glucose from the bloodstream by
the peripheral cells and to inhibit the normal secretion of glucose
by the liver. The politics of why this drug ever came to market and
then remained in the market for such an unexplainable length of time
with regulatory agency approval is not clear. 
As of April 2000 law suits commenced to clarify this situation 
Today insulin is prescribed for both the Type I and Type II diabetics.
Injectable insulin substitutes for the insulin that the body no longer
produces. Of course, this treatment, while necessary to preserving life
for the Type I diabetic, is highly questionable when applied to the
Type II diabetic.
It is important to note that neither insulin nor any of these oral hypoglycemic
agents exert any curative action whatsoever on any type of diabetes.
None of these medical strategies are designed to normalize the cellular
uptake of glucose by the cells that need it to power their activity.
The prognosis with this orthodox treatment is increasing disability
and early death from heart or kidney failure orthe failure of some other
The third step to a cure for this disease is to become informed and
to apply an alternative methodology that is soundly based upon good
Alternative medical treatment
Effective alternative treatment that directly leads to a cure is available
today for some Type I and for many Type II diabetics. About 5% of the
diabetic population suffers from Type I diabetes; the remaining 95%
suffer from Type II diabetes. Gestational
diabetes is simply ordinary diabetes contracted by a woman who is pregnant.
For the Type I diabetic an alternative methodology for the treatment
of Type I Diabetes was the subject of intensive research in the early
1990's with several papers presented in the scientific journals. This
was done in modern hospitals in Madras, India and subjected to rigorous
double-blind studies to prove its efficacy.
The protocol operated to restore normal pancreatic beta cell function
so the pancreas could again produce insulin as it should. This approach
was, apparently, demonstrated to be capable of restoring pancreatic
beta cell function where it had been lost. A major complication lies
in whether the antigens that originally led to the autoimmune destruction
of these beta cells have disappeared from or remain in the body. If
they remain, a cure is less likely; if they have disappeared, the cure
is more likely.
This early work in Madras India has been continued in a number of laboratories
throughout the world and much of it has been published in scientific
If a patent search is conducted to discover research work done on type
I diabetes that never seems to make it tothe marketplace, a number of
patents on herbal remedies will be found. These patents typically make
strong claims about the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells and the
restoring of them to normal function. In particular, patent number 5,886,029
entitled "Method and composition for treatment of diabetes"
claims to restore pancreatic beta cell function by regenerating the
pancreatic beta cells. This particular patent states in part:
The unique combination of components in the medicinal composition leads
to a regeneration of the pancreas cells which then start producing insulin
on their own. Since the composition restores normal pancreatic function,
treatment can be discontinued after between four and twelve months.
For reasons which, while understandable, are not at all acceptable,
this promising line of research never matured and today can be found
only in the archives of a few obscure scientific journals and in the
patent office. Since absolutely no financial incentive exists to cure
type I diabetes, this methodology is not likely to reappear any time
soon and certainly not in the American orthodox medical community.
The goal of any effective alternative program is to repair and restore
the body's own blood sugar control mechanism. It is the malfunctioning
of this mechanism that, over time, directly causes all of the many debilitating
symptoms that make orthodox treatment so financially rewarding for the
diabetes industry. For Type II Diabetes, the steps in the program are:
Repair the faulty blood sugar control system. This is done simply by
substituting clean healthy beneficial fats and oils in the diet for
the pristine looking but toxic trans-isomer mix found in attractive
plastic containers on room temperature supermarket shelves. Consume
only flax oil, fish oil and occasionally cod liver oil until blood sugar
starts to stabilize. Then add back healthy oils such as butter, coconut
oil, olive oil and clean animal fat. Read labels; refuse to consume
cheap junk oils when they appear in processed food or on restaurant
menus. Diabetics are chronically short of vitamins and minerals; they
need to add a good quality broad spectrum supplement to the diet.
Control blood sugar manually during the recovery cycle. Under medical
supervision, gradually discontinue all oral hypoglycemic agents along
with any additional drugs given to counteract their side effects. Develop
natural blood sugar control by the use of glycaemic tables, by consuming
frequent small meals, by the use of fiber, by regular post prandial
exercise, and by a complete avoidance of all sugars along with the judicious
use of only non-toxic sweeteners .
Avoid alcohol until blood sugar stabilizes in the normal range. Avoid
caffeine as well as other stimulants; they tend to trigger sugar release
by the liver. Keep score by using a pin prick type glucose meter. Keep
track of everything you do with a medical diary.
Restore a proper balance of healthy fats and oils when the blood sugar
controller again works Permanently remove from the diet all cheap toxic
junk fats and oils and the processed and restaurant foods that contain
them. When the blood sugar controller again starts to work correctly,
gradually introduce additional healthy foods to the diet. Test the effect
of these added foods by monitoring blood sugar levels with the pin prick
type blood sugar monitor. Be sure to include the results of these tests
in your diary also.
Continue the program until normal insulin values are also restored after
blood sugar levels begin to stabilize in the normal region. Once blood
sugar levels fall into the normal range the pancreas will gradually
stop over producing insulin. This process will typically take a little
longer and can be tested by having your physician send a sample of your
blood to a lab for a serum insulin determination. A good idea is to
wait a couple of months after blood sugar control is restored and then
have your physician check your insulin level. It's nice to have blood
sugar in the normal range; it's even nicer to have this accomplished
without excess insulin in the bloodstream.
Separately repair the collateral damage done by the disease. Vascular
problems caused by a chronically elevated glucose level will normally
reverse themselves without conscious effort. The effects of retinopathy
and of peripheral neuropathy, for example, will usually self repair.
However when the fine capillaries in the basement membranes of the kidneys
begin to leak due to chronic high blood glucose, the kidneys compensate
by laying down scar tissue to prevent the leakage. This scar tissue
remains even after the diabetes is cured and is the reason why the kidney
damage is not believed to self repair.
A word of warning: when retinopathy develops a temptation will exist
to have the damage repaired by laser surgery. This laser technique stops
the retinal bleeding by creating scar tissue where the leaks have developed.
This scar tissue will prevent normal healing of the fine capillaries
in the eye when the diabetes is reversed. By reversing the diabetes
instead of opting for laser surgery, there is an excellent chance that
the eye will heal completely. However if laser surgery is done, this
healing will always be complicated by the scar tissue left by the laser.
The arterial and vascular damage done by years of elevated sugar and
insulin and by the proliferation of systemic candida will slowly reverse
due to improved diet. However, it takes many years to clean out the
arteries by this form of oral chelation. Arterial damage can be reversed
much more quickly by using intravenous chelation 
therapy. What would normally take many years through diet alone, can
often be done in six months with intravenous therapy. This is reputed
to be effective over 80% of the time. For obvious reasons, don't expect
your doctor to approve of this, particularly if he is a heart specialist.
The prognosis is usually swift recovery from the disease and restoration
of normal health and energy levels in a few months to a year or more.
The length of time that it takes to effect a cure depends upon how long
the disease was allowed to develop. For those who quickly work to reverse
the disease after early discovery, the time is usually a few months
or less. For those who have had the disease for many years, this recovery
time may lengthen to a year or more. Thus, there is good reason to get
busy reversing this disease as soon as it becomes clearly identified.
By the time you get to this point in this article, and, if we've done
a good job of explaining our diabetes epidemic, you should know what
causes it, what orthodox medical treatment is all about and why diabetes
has become a disgrace both in the US and world wide. Of even greater
importance, you have become acquainted with a self help program that
has demonstrated great potential to actually cure this disease.
Thomas Smith is a reluctant medical investigator having been forced
into curing his own diabetes because it was obvious that his doctor
would not or could not not cure it. He has published the results of
his successful diabetes investigation in his self help manual entitled
"Insulin: Our Silent Killer" written for the layman but also
widely valued by the medical practitioner. This manual details the steps
required to reverse Type II Diabetes and references the work being done
with Type I Diabetes. In the US, the book may be purchased by sending
