Natural Options for Diabetes

The following are some simple yet powerful products that others have used to see their blood sugar levels return to normal.

Chi Machine

Chi MachineThis is a little passive exercise machine that has proven to help people restore their blood sugar levels in as little as 2 weeks. You simply lie down, put your ankles in the ankle rests and turn the unit on. It briskly moves your ankles from side to side, causing a mild fishtailing of the entire body. This simple activity powerfully moves the lymphatic system and promotes a phenomenal amount of healing in the body. The testimonies that people share are quite remarkable. I personally will never be without mine, if I have a choice. For those disinclined to exercise, this machine is profound. 15 minutes on this is equal to a 90-minute brisk walk.

Colostrum is hands down the best overall body healer known to man and it is wonderful for those challenged by Diabetes. Here is a quote from:

Components in Colostrum Balance Blood Sugar Levels and Reduce Insulin Requirements

by Thomas E. Stone ND, CNHP

Colostrum has also been shown to balance blood sugar levels. This is due, at least in part, to a growth factor known as IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor). A 1990 publication in “Diabetes,” suggested that colostrum supplementation would be a very beneficial treatment for diabetes, based on the fact that IGF-1, can stimulate glucose utilization. Researchers found that IGF-1 levels were lower in diabetic patients than in healthy individuals. After administering IGF-1 to patients, doctors noticed a two-fold increase in glucose transport to the muscles, potentially treating hyperglycemia and the dependence on insulin.

As a naturopathic physician, I was using colostrum 20 years ago. Back then, I could get it from organic farmers in the Midwest – and I used it as a liquid. However, when I moved my practice, I was no longer able to obtain it from the local farmers and so I investigated numerous forms of dried colostrum on the market. None of them even came close to the track record I had established with true colostrum, so I eliminated it from my practice for a number of years. Finally, several years ago, I discovered the Immune-Tree brand. Just tasting and feeling it, I knew I had found the real thing. And sure enough, when I gave this to my patients, they experienced the benefits I knew they could. So, once again, colostrum is an integral part of my practice.

For diabetic patients, colostrum is unbeatable. Within months, every one of my patients have either greatly reduced their levels of insulin or they have eliminated it altogether. That’s quite a track record, but it’s true.

Magnesium is essential for those with Diabetes. Magnesium is essential for all of us and according to experts 7 our of 10 people in the US are low in magnesium due to the fact that our soil is so low in magnesium.  We just don’t get it in our diet. Magnesium is involved in more than 300 biological processes and is essential for regulation of the heart and our blood sugar levels.  Here is a quote from: Jerry L. Nadler, MD

The link between diabetes mellitus and magnesium deficiency is well known. A growing body of evidence suggests that magnesium plays a pivotal role in reducing cardiovascular risks and may be involved in the pathogenesis of diabetes itself. While the benefits of oral magnesium supplementation on glycemic control have yet to be demonstrated in patients, magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity. Based on current knowledge, clinicians have good reason to believe that magnesium repletion may play a role in delaying type 2 diabetes onset and potentially in warding off its devastating complications — cardiovascular disease, retinopathy, and nephropathy.

And another quote:

Reprint: Online PR News – 28-March-2011 –Orange, CA – March 26, 2011 — A new study from Brazil, scrutinized magnesium intake and blood levels in 51 type 2 diabetes patients. Blood sugar (glucose) tests were done which measure the levels of glucose in the patient’s blood. One such test is the “fasting blood sugar test” which measures blood glucose after you have not eaten for at least 8 hours.

Usually, blood glucose levels increase a bit after eating. This increase causes the pancreas to release insulin so that blood glucose levels do not get too high. Blood glucose levels that remain high over time can damage eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels.

The study found that those patients with lower fasting and after-meal blood glucose levels had higher blood magnesium levels while those patients with higher fasting glucose levels had lower blood magnesium levels and higher urine levels of magnesium. A full 82% of the diabetics studied showed that magnesium intake was insufficient with the lowest levels found in those with kidney complications. About 62% of the patients had low blood levels of magnesium.

The researchers noted that because magnesium is so vital to energy supply and utilization in the body, they were not surprised to find that lower levels of magnesium in the blood lead to metabolic malfunctions such as diabetes. They also concluded that the impaired kidney function connected with diabetes mellitus might explain the higher levels of magnesium in the urine, which combined with insufficient magnesium intake, caused the high blood sugar levels.

These results correlate with the findings of Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, author of the popular book on the subject called “The Magnesium Miracle”, and Medical Director of the Nutritional Magnesium Association.

Magnesium isn’t just an option for those with Diabetes it is a must. The trick is to get Magnesium the is well used by the body. For that, Orotates are top of the line.

This is a Medicinal mushroom that does all manner of good things in the body, including lowering blood sugar. For a good basic article, click HERE.

If you prefer audio we have some excellent BlogTalkRadio broadcasts you can listen to on this subject.   Look for the Medicinal Mushroom broadcasts.  Ganoderma Lucidum is second only to colostrum, in my opinion, for overall body support that is profound. I love Gano.

Listen to a broadcast to find out the most pure and potent one to use.

One Testimony: Blood Sugar Balance

I have been taking 1 per day of the Ganoderma capsules for 4 weeks now.

My blood sugar level history is as follows: Before taking the Gano capsules:          300. After taking the Gano capsules: 1st week: 252; — 2nd week: 187; — 3rd    week: 153; — 4th week: 137.

This the first time my blood sugar went down to 137 in 13 years! I’m so excited about the Gano Excel products.

Fulvic Acid Minerals

Fulvic Acid Minerals are also extremely helpful for Diabetics in a unique way.

Here is one quote:

Scientists found that fulvic acids show significant success in preventing and combating free radical damage to pancreatic islet B cells, which is the widely accepted cause for diabetes mellitus. What they discovered was that the Fulvic acid preparation significantly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. Their clinical studies show that fulvic acids diminish the development and progression of diabetes, and assisted in the treatment.

In addition to be a great help with restoring the BSCS, fulvic acid minerals a serious little super healers. To read up on their astounding capabilities and effects go here to find four excellent reports and find the best fulvics available.


Parent Essential Oils

Parent Essential Oils are simply old fashioned oils, processed in a low heat, low oxygen environment that are fresh and alive and essential to good health. Your cells use these types of oils to create windows that nutrients and oxygen flow through. Without these natural, unprocessed oils the body breaks down in a multitude of ways. This is one of the most basic reasons we have Cancer, Diabetes and other preventable illness in epidemic levels in the US. Our diets are filled with dangerous oils like canola, and all the oils you generally find at the grocery store.  The right oils are essential for a properly functioning BSCS. This, like, magnesium, is not an option, it is a necessity.

There are a number of ways to lower blood sugar in the body. For instance, you can use herbs that naturally lower blood sugar. One such herb is Goldenseal. Goldenseal is a natural form of insulin. It is also a natural anti-biotic and should only be taken for a short time, perhaps two weeks. Taking it longer than that would lead to mild toxicity. You can see the limitations of trying to control your blood sugar levels with this type of herb.

In addition, you have to ask yourself, “Do I just want to treat my blood sugar levels with herbs, similar to how a prescription medication would, or do I want to fix the system that regulates my blood sugar so that my levels stay in a healthy range all on their own?”  I’m thinking the wise choice is to do the latter.  The products mentioned above all help the body move in that direction.

And, with the understanding that some people would rather have Diabetes than to have to change their diet or lifestyle, we offer these options for your study.

Your Excellent Health does not guarantee these will work for anyone. Everyone’s body responds differently to individual ingredients, but the below products are formulated based on research regarding successful use of nutrients to stabilize blood sugar levels. Consult your health care professional when making choices about your personal protocol. If you are on pharmaceutical medications: contact your pharmacist or your MD about possible contra-indications.

The truth is that anything healthy will positively affect your blood sugar levels. This includes the food you eat. Your diet is either giving you Diabetes or it is curing/preventing it. When you give the body what it was designed to run on it runs well. When you don’t it doesn’t. It is very simple. Getting set free from food addiction, however, isn’t always simple, so supplements can be helpful while you attempt to make the transition.

Let the specter of blindness, kidney failure and amputation help to motivate you. You might find some photos of those who have suffered this fate to help you make the right choices. This is serious stuff. Neuropathy, wounds that won’t heal, and general malaise are not how you want to live your life.

What works for one person doesn’t always work for another, so we try to give numerous options for our readers. Check out the two listed below.

Diabetes mellitus responsible for enormous world economic burden

A December supplement to the British Diabetic Association journal, Diabetic Medicine, warned that the prevalence of diabetes worldwide is expected to nearly double in the next twelve years. Dr. Paul Zimmet and colleagues for the International Diabetes Institute and the World Health Organization report that diabetes mellitus “appears to be epidemic in many regions of the world” and will double and could even triple by the year 2010. (It has, just as they predicted)
