Natural Diabetes Cure
Thanks for visiting our site.
If you have diabetes and you are looking for a natural diabetes cure, or if you have questions about diabetes and alternative treatments, this is the place for you.
It is our goal to people discover freedom in life by discovering a natural diabetes cure. If you haven’t read about us and why we do what we do, I suggest you read my story [link to about me page] so you have an idea of who we are and why we do what we do.
What Is Diabetes Anyway?
Diabetes is a failure of the body to produce insulin necessary to absorb glucose (sugar) and produce energy. It is a failure to break down food properly.
The cells in your body need energy. When you eat, the pancreas produces beta cells that release a hormone called insulin into the bloodstream. Insulin latches on to the cells and informs them to absorb the sugar from the bloodstream.
Insulin is “key,” that unlocks the cell to allow sugar to enter it so it can be turned into energy for the body.
Diabetes occurs when the pancreas either doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body attacks itself and destroys the beta cells releasing insulin. In essence, it doesn’t handle insulin properly. More about this below.
Different Types of Diabetes
There are basically two types of diabetes. Not much distinguishes the two in that both types fail to process insulin properly.
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 is often called insulin-dependent diabetes. This is where the body fights against itself in the production of insulin. Insulin is needed to help cells absorb glucose which produces energy.
Here’s what WebMD says:
In type 1 diabetes, the body’s immune system destroys the cells that release insulin, eventually eliminating insulin production from the body. Without insulin, cells cannot absorb sugar (glucose), which they need to produce energy.
Type 1 diabetes usually occurs at birth or early on, and is sometimes called juvenile-onset diabetes. According to WebMD, 5 to 10 people with diabetes have Type 1 diabetics.
Type 2 Diabetes
This is where the body isn’t able to use insulin properly. Over time, the pancreas slowly stops producing insulin. This is why it is referred to as insulin resistant. This is often called adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes. It is the predominate type of diabetes in the United States.
What is the difference?
Basically, Type 1 diabetics have no ability to produce insulin. Type 2 have impaired ability.
What Are The Dangers Of Diabetes?
- Kidney failure
- Heart disease
- Poor blood circulation leading to amputation of limbs
- Pancreatic problems – the pancreas stops producing insulin leading to other issues
- Vision problems
Our body is ‘fearfully and wonderfully made.’ It is an amazing organism. And when one part of the body stops functioning properly it affects other areas of the body. We are intricately made and complexly connected.
This is why it is so important to approach diabetes from a holistic manner. We can’t fix the problem without addressing our entire lifestyle.
This is another reason we are opposed to many of the medical methods used today. They only address one aspect of the human body; many times causing adverse problems in other areas. Just read the side-effects on any bottle of medicine in your cabinet. It seems okay in the medical profession to try to heal one area while destroying another.
How Food Is Processed?
To understand diabetes we first have to understand how our food is processed and turned into useable energy/fuel.
Food is fuel. We need to keep that in mind as we seek to understand diabetes. Information is power. Knowledge of how the body works empowers us to make right decisions.
Here’s a rough draft picture of what happens when you eat:
- Food goes into the stomach for processing
- Enzymes and acids break the food down into manageable substances
- Carbohydrates and starches breakdown into glucose
- The small intestines absorb the glucose into the bloodstream
- Glucose will stay in the bloodstream and elevate ‘blood sugar levels’ if not utilized
- Beta cells from the pancreas release the hormone insulin to allow cells to use the glucose for fuel
This video (though old) gives an excellent breakdown of how food is converted into energy.
What Causes Diabetes?
The cause is actually unknown; at least there is no uniform answer as to WHY someone becomes diabetic. We know how, but other than generalized concepts there is no conformity of reason in the medical field.
What is known is the body, for some reason, fights against itself in the production of insulin to regulate blood sugar. So the big picture is it is an autoimmune disfunction.
Many doctors believe that the body simply wears out in Type 2 diabetes patients. This ‘wearing out’ can be brought on by abuse of the digestive system (mainly the pancreas) or by not having a proper diet.
Is There A Natural Diabetes Cure?
The question usually arises, ‘Can Diabetes Be Cured Naturally?’ Our answer is Yes!
As you will read below, our belief is that diabetes is curable. However, most medicines only treat the symptoms, not the real issue. At best, most diabetes treatments only offer a synthetic approach to treatment; meaning, they provide
Our Philosophy [What We Believe About Diabetes]
I need to first mention that I (we) at The Diabetes Hack are not medical professionals. We do not hold a medical license or any other medical certification. Our goal is research natural diabetes cures and treatments, and present that information for those who desire a more holistic approach.
We do consult with those in the medical profession and rely on current medical research to help educate our readers. There are many medical professionals who, like us, believe diabetes is curable with natural remedies. We rely heavily on their research.
Our approach is simple, practical and natural.
Here’s a few highlights about what we believe and how we approach any research and treatment.
Our approach is actually a common sense approach.
To us, it doesn’t make sense to address the issue of diabetes using synthetic drugs that mask the real problems.
It is not logical to treat only part of the problem when our bodies are complex and multifaceted. A holistic approach is needed if we are to have success.
It doesn’t make sense treat symptoms and not address causes.
And it doesn’t make sense to use medications that have adverse affects on other organs in the human body.
Here’s what usually happens:
The patient goes to the doctor because of a problem. We’ll call it ‘Problem A.’ The doctor prescribes a medication for ‘Problem A’ but the medication has a negative side-effect on the liver (or some other organ). So a different medication is prescribed for the new problem – ‘Problem B.’ That medicine also has side-effects. So another medication is prescribed to treat ‘Problem C’ that is caused by the second medication. And the cycle continues.
There has to be a better way.
We believe there is…
Our approach is natural.
We believe there are natural remedies that are actually preferable to synthetic drugs.
Synthetic drugs are man-made. Natural remedies work better with the body because of the fact that they are natural.
While we don’t align with most of the conspiracy theorist on the internet, there is no doubt a political agenda that controls a lot of the Food and Drug industry today. Special interest groups pay big money to make sure their products, agendas and companies stay in business.
Add to this the fact that it is pretty common knowledge that many of the preservatives and chemicals used in the food industry are, at best, unhealthy, and at worst, detrimental to our well being. For this reason we follow a natural approach when dealing with health and diet.
This site is dedicated to the education of these natural remedies. You can read more about them in blog posts, key articles and videos.
Our approach is a spiritual approach.
You can read more about it in my article, Diabetes: Why You Can Be Cured.’
Why do we say our approach is spiritual? Because we believe that…
One, we are spiritual in nature and not merely physical. We are complex and created in the image of God.
Two, any approach to healing must incorporate the total person; spirit, soul and body. Only a holistic approach will give lasting results. Even medical science is finally acknowledging this on many levels.
Three, because we are spiritual beings, we draw certain conclusions about how things work. By the way, you do not have to agree with our ‘spiritual philosophy’ in order to benefit from our research, recommendations and presentations.
Our philosophy simply drives our belief that diabetes can be cured. So whether you agree with our premise or not, the information will be helpful.
Here it is in a nutshell: We call them our 7 Essential Beliefs .
- God created our bodies to function a certain way. He gave us everything we need when He placed man in the Garden of Eden. (Genesis 1-2) If you don’t believe in the Biblical account of creation, you can certainly agree that our human bodies are designed to sustain life. It functions with an incredible, amazing ability to heal itself.
- Since we are design (created) in such an amazing way, when our bodies stop functioning that way, it is called disease. Disease is foreign to the body. That’s why we call it disease.
- If we operate according to God’s plan, our bodies function properly. Diet, exercise and proper intake of water influence the way our body operates. When we get this wrong, the body responds negatively. Example: You can’t run an automobile on sugar water; it’s not designed to operate that way. It will fail. Same goes with our body.
- For decades we (as a people) have fed our bodies processed foods that have caused failure and disease in our bodies. And we have lived in violation of holistic living. That includes spirit, soul (things like forgiveness, anxiety, stress all fall into this category. It affects our health in very real ways), and body (what we eat and how we live).
- The cure is found when we reverse this process and feed ourselves the right things in EVERY area of life.
- We are designed to fight disease; diabetes is no different. Sometimes we just need a jump start. We need to know HOW to get our life in order so our bodies can fight disease.
- Understanding how the body works is practical so we can live the life we were meant to live. Hence, one of the best things we can do is study nutrition and holistic health.
Let’s address a few of the objections we often hear…
Objection #1: But I Believe In Medical Science!
Good. So do we.
The question is, which ‘medical science’ do you believe in? The reality is science has changed. What was once believed in the 1950’s about diabetes is no longer relevant or accurate. In fact, it is down-right wrong. So if you believed in medical science in the 50’s and 60’s you would have been misinformed. And in many cases, to your own detriment.
Let me give you an example…
Early on (70’s into the 90’s) AIDS wasn’t considered to be a virus transferable to others. Because of this, in Africa, AIDS spread like wildfire to epidemic proportions. When it was ‘proven’ that it could and was transferable through bodily fluids, the rate of contraction went down.
Another example is is the theory of maternal impression. Until the 20th Century it was believed that birth defects could be caused by a powerful mental influence working on the mother’s mind.
One more to make my point. Again, this one wasn’t overturned until the 20th Century. The Miasma theory basically states that diseases such as cholera, Black Death and others were caused by miasma, which is Greek for pollution. They speculated that epidemics were due to rotting organic matter dispensed through the air.
This gave way to the germ theory. By the way, the ‘new science’ is speculating that even the germ theory (which is what is taught in medical schools today) is not completely accurate.
My point? The science was wrong at first.
You might say, ‘But we’ve come a long way since then!’ And you are right. But the next question is, do you actually believe medical science knows everything about diabetes now?
The answer to that is easy; just go to the internet and try to find out WHY people get diabetes. You’ll be overwhelmed at the conflicting information…from the medical community.
The truth is, science – medical science – changes on a regular basis. They even have a term that is used to describe the rate of how often things change; it’s called ‘information half life.’ It is “the period of time it takes for 50% of what is currently published/understood to be rendered obsolete by new discoveries.”
According to the Canadian Medical Association Journal, 112:572, 1975, the ‘shelf life’ for current knowledge is 7 years.
Even if that number is way off, and it’s more like 50 years, the point is that information we know and rely on today WILL CHANGE at some point in the future.
I get a kick out of reading medical journal information and comparing it to the information we read even 5 years ago. There is very little consensus when it comes to medicine.
I, for one, do not believe we know everything, so I question everything we think we know. Not in a bad sense, but with an awareness that scientific knowledge is not static; it changes. The more we learn, the more we can ‘update’ our data-bank of information. Bottom line: The end of the story has not been written when it comes to medical knowledge about diabetes.
Objection #2: I Don’t Believe In All That New Age – Holistic Mumbo Jumbo!
Again, good. Neither do we.
There is a lot of ‘mumbo jumbo’ out there. Unsubstantiated claims. False information. Just plain-old weird stuff.
That’s not the ‘natural’ cures and remedies we are talking about.
But there is enough medical research in the areas of holistic and natural treatments that are worth looking into. It is those studies we want to pay attention to. It’s that research we find interesting.
Plus, it comes back to our philosophy and understanding of how things work. In our view, God made an incredible planet. He gave Adam and Eve everything they needed to, not just sustain life, but to enjoy life. That’s where we begin our journey.
The question is…
