Everyone who has diabetes or knows someone with diabetes has probably asked the question, can diabetes be cured? There are two basic opinions, those who believe there are already natural methods that work to cure diabetes and those that believe the only method is through management with pills, insulin shots, a better diet, and exercise. In this article, we’ll discuss both beliefs and hopefully give you enough information to allow you to form your own opinion. After all, it’s your body, not your doctor’s or your friend’s or anyone else’s. What you believe in and what you feel deep inside is going to be the best method for you to cope with or eventually cure diabetes.
Diabetes Treatment – The Norm
Diabetes has been recognized for thousands of years, dating back to the ancient Egyptians who recorded cases of people with frequent urination. With this type of history, a lot of time and money has gone into research to effectively manage diabetes with the hope that the ever popular question, can diabetes be cured, would eventually be answered. When someone is diagnosed with diabetes today, whether it be type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes, the norm is to start them on a regular schedule of drugs. These are prescribed by their doctor and usually consist of insulin shots or some type of pill, sometimes both. The patient is also advised to:
- Make healthy food choices
- Start some type of physical activity
- Control blood pressure levels
- Control cholesterol levels
Eating healthier and becoming physically active are two choices almost everyone can benefit from in some way, not just diabetics. So it makes sense that these two are in this list, but the more pressing questions come with the last two items, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Now these items may straighten out and control themselves naturally when a healthier diet is introduced along with some physical activity, but if they are severe enough, your doctor may prescribe additional medications to help control them. This starts to lead the patient down a path of something I personally don’t like to see, medication dependency.
You see, now the diabetic is not only taking medication for their diabetes, but they’re also taking medication to control their blood pressure levels, and even more medicine to control cholesterol levels. This, to me, is putting a band-aid over the issue(s) and simply covering it up. It doesn’t answer our question, can diabetes be cured, because it doesn’t find the root cause for diabetes and cure it, rather it begins a treatment plan that will require the patient to stay on these medications for the rest of their life. They’re quick fixes being used as a long term solution.
This has been the norm and it’s worked to help patients feel better, live longer, and lead healthier lives than they would have without taking any action. It’s hard to argue against these benefits because for the most part, it works, but it has also worked to transfer large quantities of money from the patients pockets to the doctor’s and pharmaceutical company’s pockets. The question I ask you now is, if you were making a steady stream of income off of a drug that a patient requires for the remainder of their life, would you be quick to fund research to find a cure? A diabetes cure that would end this steady stream of income?
The Diabetes Cure – New Beliefs
Several doctors, scientists, and nutritionists have surfaced recently with claims that they have finally answered our question, can diabetes be cured? They’ve performed extensive research to find the root cause of diabetes and why a diabetic’s body functions differently than it did before. Their research found that 80% of the sugar production in the body comes from cells that aren’t affected by insulin. What this means is that no matter how much insulin you take, your body is still going to produce a large amount of glucose, because your insulin is only affecting 20% of the sugar producing cells. Their methods involve reducing the sugar produced in the cells that aren’t affected by insulin, therefore working on the 80% instead of the 20%.
At first these teams worked with individual proteins and enzymes to find the combinations that would lower the glucose production most effectively. Then, they found natural foods and supplements that contained these proteins and enzymes and discovered that when consumed in a particular order, they actually worked at lowering the body’s glucose production by 95%. Therefore, reversing the effects of diabetes. What’s even better is that this method worked in less than 3 weeks and once complete, it only required minimal maintenance to maintain good glucose levels and the insulin injections could be stopped. Foods typically considered off-limits for diabetics could now be consumed and the body was able to handle them without blood-sugar spikes and troughs. The body had trained itself to function normally once again.
Can diabetes be cured? Dr. Kenneth Pullman led the team that found the breakthrough discoveries above and he seems to think so. You can read more about this research and watch a video explaining their findings at Dr. Pullman’s website, The Diabetes Protocol.
Diabetic Decision – In Conclusion
As I said in the beginning, the ultimate choice is up to you. It’s your body and your life that will be affected, but for the cost of one prescription refill and the sacrifice of just a couple of weeks, it seems logical to try what these new doctor’s are telling us to see if their methods really work to cure diabetes. Unlike the normal method with insulin and/or synthetic drugs, their methods are all natural, so you know what you’re putting into your body. These methods may have been used in the times of the ancient Egyptians and lost over the years only to be rediscovered recently. This could also be a new and major breakthrough in the history of diabetes. Who really knows, but the chance to take your life back and have your body functioning naturally and efficiently as it was designed to do is something we should all appreciate and strive for.
