Can Diabetes be Cured not just Controlled?

Dr. Kenneth Pullman says yes. Having suffered since childhood from diabetes, inherited from his father, he had a mission to find a cure. He spent years of research studying why blood sugar levels were always higher first thing in the morning. Where did this extra glucose come from? He analyzed extracts from kidney and liver tissues and found they did make glucose.
Then he discovered which enzymes were responsible. Next he found which amino acids, fatty acids or other chemicals could block this production. The next step was analyzing fruits, vegetables and supplements to find the ones with these unique chemicals.
He tried these ingredients first while continuing insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs. Early morning blood sugar was always a perfect 100. He reduced insulin and other drugs and blood sugar was normal throughout the day. Voila. He was able to quit taking the medications.
He did clinical trials on both type I and II diabetics ages 7-89 and they had normal blood glucose within a month. No medical journal would print his results, being dependent on drug companies for advertising . Big Phrma could lose the thousands of dollars a year it gets per diabetic.
In the past year 41,000 diabetics used the information from a secret website. You can look for The Diabetic Protocol: Completely and Permanently Reverse both Type I and Type II Diabetes.

Don’t Count Calories to Lose Weight

Don’t count calories or you might avoid fat, the best energy food. Fat doesn’t raise your insulin as sugars and refined carbohydrates do. Robert Lustig M.D. says that the obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease that cost the US 147 Billion dollars a year can be blamed on sugars and refined carbohydrates. These raise your insulin, making you hungry for more carbs. He explains this in his latest book “Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease”. Dr. Lustig says that whole fruit has fiber to slow down the uptake of natural fructose. Juices and soft drinks with high-fructose corn syrup have easily absorbed sugars that your liver makes into tri-glycerides (fats). Sugars act on the same pleasure center of your brain as cocaine does. Sugars mess up your body’s reaction to leptin hormones as well as to insulin. Your body doesn’t get the signal that you’re satisfied so you continue wanting more carbohydrates. These easily become body fat.
In my book I say to avoid sweet liquids and have few desserts. My favorite is cheese cake because it has protein and fat to balance the carbohydrates. This more nearly corresponds to Dr. Barry Sears’ diets with 30% protein, 30% fat and 40% carbohydrate. A snack of nuts is preferable to a cookie. The fat can give you energy for your muscles and the protein can be changed to glucose for your brain, the only organ that requires glucose.
Calories in versus calories used could be measured using a sugar solution and a device to capture carbon dioxide while on a treadmill or exercise bike. These measurements show short term metabolism but neglect the other reactions also occurring in your body. Your body is not a machine. The uptake of dietary fat is not easily measured so it has been ignored as an energy food.
Jonathon Bailor in his new book “The Calorie Myth–How to Eat More, Exercise Less, Lose Weight and Live Better” explains how counting calories doesn’t work. The right type of food and the right exercise are what get results.

A Twelve Step Program for Sugar Addicts Needed?

The great increase of diabetes and obesity during the past forty years is related to the huge increase in the amount of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup in our food and drink. It’s now over 150 pounds per person per year. Even artificial sweeteners prime you to want the feel-good chemicals created in your brain by sugar. Weight loss groups had concentrated on total calories instead of the addicting sugar. Fat consumption is self-limiting as your cells produce hormones that tell your brain to stop eating. Sugars raise insulin so you crave more sugar to get another sugar high.
Years ago when I suffered from anorexia and bulimia, I felt like an alcoholic. When I ate a candy bar, I told myself I would give them up forever so why not have another one now, then another. One was too much but never enough. Later, a high protein diet and fat helped me.
As mentioned in my book, Dr. Schwarzbein, doctors Rachael and Richard Heller, Dr. Rivas and psychologist Julia Ross talk about sugar addiction. Treatments range from high doses of certain amino acids to prescriptions to complete avoidance. The last is easier said than done. Now Dr.Mark Hyman in “The Blood Sugar Solution” says that sugar is a toxin that can cause a fatty liver just like alcohol. The combination of diabetes and obesity results in over 350 billion dollars in medical costs in America each year. He says that one-on-one coaching or else small group discussions can be the best way to help avoid sugars and refined carbohydrate foods
Maybe it’s time for Sugar-holics Anonymous.
