Most doctors will tell you that diabetes is an incurable disease. If you are one of the unfortunate many who are diagnosed with diabetes, the medical establishment will expect that you will be testing your blood, watching your diet carefully and taking medication each day for the rest of your life. In itself diabetes has become its own industry, bringing in many billions of dollars each year.
In 2007 I was diagnosed with diabetes and given no hope of living a life free of this disease. Despite all the ‘eat this, not that’ lists, all of the do’s and do not’s, publications about exercise, glycemic index pamphlets and information on how to live a productive life despite diabetes I was told that diabetes would be with me the rest of my life. I simply had to learn to live with a restrictive diet, pricking myself and a lifetime of medication. If I didn’t I would die. Does that sound as hopeless to you as it did to me?
I followed all the rules. I ate more fruits and vegetables. I ate a low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-sugar diet. I ate more fish. I exercised daily. After a time I was riding my exercise bike and walking an average of over 90 minutes daily. I did everything they told me. It had no effect whatsoever on the amount of medication I took daily, nor on the test results for blood sugar. All the effort and I was still at risk for heart disease and so many other problems.
I had heard of other people who had become diabetes free, so I knew it had to be possible. Was this something only a few could overcome? Or was it possible for anyone to overcome diabetes? I started researching articles, books and medical studies. I asked questions of people I knew who had overcome diabetes. There had to be a cure. Even the Diabetes Association had a statement on an obscure page that diabetes was curable.
After much research, I found studies that resulted in Type II diabetes sufferers being disease free and even Type I diabetes patients being cured. In one study that lasted for 90 days 100% of the Type II diabetes participants and more than half of Type I diabetes participants no longer needed medications of any sort. The rest of the Type I sufferers had their medications cut by up to 75%. Everyone who completed the 90 day program had major positive results. There was a way to cure diabetes.
Now the question was what these people went through to obtain these amazing results. Did they have to take a different kind of drug? What was the secret? After reading the protocols and cross-checking these protocols in other studies and in various books, I found the process was actually quite simple. In fact it seemed too easy, too simple. I was determined that I would give it a try. I’m glad I did.
Within 45 days of starting a program I was diabetes-free. No more blood glucose meters. No more medications. I enjoy a diet free of counting calories or tracking fats, carbohydrates, proteins, sugars or anything else. I can eat what I like. And I know how and what to eat and drink so I will never experience diabetes again. Diabetes is definitely a curable ailment.
