Curing diabetes is shrouded in misinformation. According to Dr. David R. Hawkins, Ph.D., most people are kept in the dark regarding this subject. Diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, has reached a pandemic level globally. After acquiring type 2 diabetes, rather than being taught about curing diabetes, suffers are prescribed pharmaceutical drugs: a persistent approach of many medical doctors. That approach to treating the diabetes by doctors is maintained because diabetics mostly don’t listen to advice about lifestyle changes and are often not willing to invest the time and effort needed for curing diabetes. But is there sufficient evidence to confirm that the approach of managing type 2 diabetes with drugs is the best solution for victims of the condition? The total amount spent each year by most developed nations on diabetes far exceeds the GDP of smaller and most undeveloped nations. For example, the United States alone spends over quarter of a billion dollars a year on diabetes treatment alone, not factoring the cost of treating diseases triggered by the diabetes, such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, and impotence.
Most diabetics don’t know that pre-diabetes is the sign of oncoming full-blown diabetes. According to experts, if the current trend of acquiring diabetes continues, by the year 2040, 1.8 billion people around the world will be diabetic. This diabetes research paper focuses on the recognition by certain diabetes researchers that the consumption of refined sugar may be the main cause of pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and obesity. A natural solution is also being given for tackling these conditions.
Dieting, exercise, and supplementation with vitamins in one’s diet can bring about the curing of diabetes mellitus, as well as pre-diabetes, and obesity.
When sugar is consumed, it converts into the simple sugar, glucose. Then, insulin—a hormone produced by the pancreas—transports the glucose to the cells of the body to be used as energy that fuels the body.
Research linking sugar consumption to type 2 diabetes and obesity
Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine, the University of California-Berkley, and the University of California-San Francisco examined data on sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. After counting for obesity and a large array of other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates. Their study was published on Feb. 27, 2013 in PLOS ONE.
During the mid-eighties, most developing nations had very little access to refined sugar beverages. During the same period, pre-diabetes and diabetes type 2 was relatively unknown in these nations, even amongst those with higher education. From the year 2015 to 2019, my research found that most beverage stores carry more sugar-sweetened beverages than bottled water. During the same period, cases of diabetes increased.
In 2009, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Prior to the diagnosis, I consumed excess amounts of refined sugar products. My blood sugar level was 21.7 millimoles/L—a life-threatening quantity. Following the norm, I managed the condition. I then read the research findings of Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton of Oxford University. According to her, after giving birth, she was unable to lose the weight she had gained during her pregnancy. Through her research, she learned that the meat she had been eating contained obesogens, which are toxic chemicals that cause weight gain and are found in many foods.
Armed with that information, I began to research the causes of type 2 diabetes. My research showed that type 2 diabetes commonly occurs when one consumes an excess amount of food products containing refined sugar—particularly sweetened beverages—over a prolonged period, until there is a build-up of sugar inside the body. With type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin; however, the amount is not sufficient for absorbtion of the excess sugar. Some of the sugar finds its way into the bloodstream where it converts into fat. Some of the fat coats the red blood cells, therefore, preventing them from absorbing the sugar and transporting it to the muscles to be used for energy. At that stage, the person is insulin-resistant. The excess sugar inside the body begins attacking the nerves and internal organs, causing damage to the heart, kidneys, eyes, and more.
With assistance and advice from, Dr. H. Robinson, Dr. Allan, and Dr Chen, I put together a diet, exercise, and vitamin therapy program which I first tested on myself while managing my diabetes.
The three-part program consisted of:
- A menu cycle: A low-carbohydrate menu to facilitate weight loss and decrease fat storage.
- Diabetic exercise: Exercise designed to facilitate the burning off of the excess sugar in the body and the fat coating the red blood cells.
- Vitamins: A diabetic body does not absorb enough nutrients and requires vitamin supplementation.
While testing the above methodology, by day 17, I noticed an increase in energy. Two days after, I had a surge of energy, which led to Dr. Robinson to request a blood glucose test. The results showed that my A1C had dropped from 14.2 to 5.5, my fasting glucose level had dropped from 21.8 to 6.2 millimoles, my blood pressure had normalized, and my weight had dropped from 219 to 185 pounds. This was my direct evidence that type 2 diabetes and obesity can be reversed.
After burning off excess body fat through diet, exercise, and vitamin therapy, the thin layer of fat coating the red blood cells begins to burn off. Once the red blood cells are exposed, they can, again, properly absorb sugar and transport it to the muscles.
In 2016, my research findings were reinforced by the research of Dr. Natalia McInnes of McMaster University, Ontario, Canada in the article “Type 2 diabetes can be cured in four months — if you cut calories and exercise” published in the online National Post on March 16, 2017.
