    Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of HIV and my aunt and her husband were cured of herpes by Dr. Baba Ogu who uses natural herbs to cure different kind of illness. Even Dr. Sebi prove to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and he cured countless of people using natural herbs. I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he can cast a spell to restore your marriage back to normal, a good luck spell to prosper in life and excel in whatever you do in life.

  • Great information...............Thank You.
  • TOMATOCAFEGAL
    GREAT INFO. THANKS.
  • Great info. Thanks.
  • My friend & sister in law both have controlled their symptoms by following the recommended diabetes diet. They feel healthier & have lost weight. Neither takes meds anymore. They have been fortunate, as not all people in that situation have had the same results.
  • No matter what you think, no matter how you feel, the truth is you CAN do this.
  • I was glad you mentioned about diabetes and sugar consumption- my aunt had type 1 for years and even thought she was a good church going Catholic lady she used to say that it was B******T that sugar caused diabetes.
  • Good information. Thanks

    those uncontrollable risk factors do not mean that we should resign and accept that as we age, we naturally get diabetes. we cannot control these factors, but nonetheless we can avoid getting the diabetes. getting the diabetes at later age mostly means that something was not right with other factors earlier in the life, whether controllable or not. this was just a theoretical input in the article.
    while it is true, that diabetes does not develop only after eating sweets, later on it was correctly mentioned that sugars can also contribute to this condition, especially in the liquid form, including sweetened juice drinks. it is the imbalance of several factors at once and everybody has a different blend of these factors present.
    the main point is that with controlling these factors one does not have to develop diabetes type 2 at all, regardless of those uncontrollable factors, too.
  • This article is very old and needs updating that is based on more current science.
  • Keepyourpower- don't worry, whoever told you that about the health insurance reforms ("Obamacare") was ignorant or lying to scare you. You won't go to jail and you won't be paying 30K for insurance with a 30K deductible. It's the current system that is really the problem because the private companies are for-profit and maximize profit by trying to push us out of the pool when we get sick, injured, or older. I struggled to pay increasing premiums in my fifties, rising 30-35% every year. A simple UTI mismanaged by a local doctor put me in the hospital and ran up expenses for expensive unnecessary tests. I was in big debt for 6 years, since my insurance company cherry picked its way through the bills instead of paying everything above the deductible (as my policy was supposed to do) and I was out of work for several months thanks to the incompetent doctor and hospital. Soon after the hospitalization, they pushed me into double the deductible and of course raised the premium another 35%. Finally they wanted 53% of my income, which would not even have left enough for the deductible after taxes and business expenses. I had to cancel. There were few choices in my state and all were equally bad, so I've been uninsured for several years. But I couldn't afford a doctor even with insurance and couldn't rely on a policy to actually pay. So like many Americans, with or without insurance I would be just one injury or serious illness away from bankruptcy and losing everything anyway. And yet I was just out of range for eligibility for a state insurance program, which would have a reasonable premium strictly tied to income (as other developed countries do it).

    But I ran my income figures through the health insurance reform calculators (just google for them), and if the politicians don't destroy the program before it gets started - I will be able to get good insurance again for a very reasonable percentage of my income (9-10%). The plan will still have us paying more than other countries (Australians pay just a few percent and have access to good medical care), but it's a start because it is tied to income - so when your income is less, you pay less. But everybody is part of the pool, healthy and not- which is also what makes it work. The private insurers try to limit the pool by raising our premiums with wild abandon to make it impossible for us to stay, after we've spent a lifetime paying into it, because they want to minimize their risk and maximize their profits. Some reforms have already kicked in that are helping people with pre-existing conditions, for instance, who were virtually uninsurable before. So don't let the political fear-mongers (bought and paid for by the insurance companies who don't want any limits) scare you.

    With a strong family history of diabetes, and a job that requires some hours at the computer mixed with opportunities for movement, this article was very helpful. Also, I did not realize that my Prozac can actually contribute to my weight loss (looked it up online). And, as I study depression (also a strong family history), I find that a healthy diet and regular exercise are also helpful with this disorder. What I did not realize was that my two beers a night are actually contributing to the depression. Thanks for making me think, look things up for myself and for giving straight information that we can rely on.

    I really love some of the contributors here, they really know their stuff!
  • I really think that in a lot of cases the "family connection" or heredity are taken for granted! I know that in 1994 when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes I was told, “Well, your mother and both her sisters had diabetes so you will be on pills the rest of your life. It is a heredity disease”
    As for the cause of diabetes, it remains elusive to the main stream medical professionals yet in case after case diabetes has been curedb y alternative medicine practitioners. I know that the drug industry will not sponsor any study to prove or disprove some of these cures as natural cures or natural medicines don’t make them billions of dollars each year but it needs to be done.
    I started reading on a diet to help cure my wife’s inoperable lung cancer and supported her by learning and implementing this diet. To my amazement it helped my diabetes. In Nov of last year I was on the max dosage of metformin (2000mg@day) and max dosage of Lantus and did not have control of my diabetes even though for years I watched my carbs, lost weight, and joined the gym. My A1C was 7+ at it’s best.
    I started this alternative medicine diet and one year later I am off all meds,(including Blood pressure and 2 cholesterol drugs). I am at my high school weight, and my healthy blood profile astounds my doctor. I am not yet cured as it took years to build my insulin resistance. I still must watch my acid level until my body heals itself as the authors said it would. I will never go back to eating like I used to.
    The authors of 3 of the 4 books I have studied on this diet claim that many diseases if not all are caused by an acidic diet resulting in your body and immune system being compromised in order to keep your body from being too acidic and untimely death. This acidic condition causes immune system problems, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and inflammation of organs and the cardio systems as it tries to rid your body of this acidic condition.
    I do not count carbs as such but just check my balance of 50% carbs, 30% GOOD fats, and 20% protein by logging my food intake. This is not a diet, but a lifestyle of eating that is curing me of my “hereditary” diabetes! This lifestyle is called the Ph dietary lifestyle. We have a list of foods that we must use to make up 80% of our diet (the alkaline food list) and another list for 20% of our diet (the acidic foods list). We eat no processed foods like canned soups, lunch meats, bacon, etc. We even have a special unprocessed sea salt we use unlimitedly as it will not cause blood pressure problems as we have eliminated all salts from processed or “prepared dinners”. We use no sugar or artificial sweeteners or absolutely no high fructose corn syrup. The only allowable exception is Stevia. We eat lots of natural fruits and their natural juices, lots of veggies, lots of nuts and seeds and their natural products (to get our good fats) and limited lean meat products ( 1 serving @ day)
    We check our ph progress every morning by checking the ph of our urine to see just how acidic it is. High acidity we adjust or diet to keep it in a neutral range. We also check our saliva ph 2x a week to see if it is neutral (near 7.2 ph) I have had several friends start this diet when they see my results and everyone has shown remarkable progress that have seriously undertake the challenge.
    Incidentally, my wife’s inoperable stage 3 lung cancer is 95% gone, hopefully next PET it will be. Cannot claim the diet did it though cause she had chemo and radiation which almost killed her. Google this diet and see what you think. There are many sites dedicated to this theory , some really stringent, some in moderation, but look at it and see what you think.
