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.
