|Our Deadly Diabetes Deception|
By Thomas Smith
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
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 career.
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 orthodox licensees 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
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
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 a
fourteen 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 the patient.
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
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 old
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
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 agents.
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
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 urine.
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,
the mobility of the GLUT 4 transporters is diminished, the interior
biochemistry of the cell is changed and glucose remains elevated in
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 2 Diabetes.
Orthodox medical treatment
After the diagnosis of diabetes, modern orthodox
medical treatment consists of either oral hypoglycemic agents or
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
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
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
or the failure of some other vital organ.
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 science.
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 journals
If a patent search is conducted to discover
research work done on type I diabetes that never seems to make it to
the 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
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.
