How my Dad Overcame Diabetes

When my father got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes he did not want to take the pharmaceutical medication offered to him because his arthritis medication he had taken earlier caused him to have a bleeding ulcer so severe he almost died.

****** Note to others who are taking pharmaceutical medications: Pharmaceuticals and even OTC remedies like aspirin can cause bleeding ulcers.

The doctor gave my father 4 months to change his diet and try alternatives to see if he could avoid taking the pharmaceutical medication for his high blood sugar levels. I usually do not treat family and friends because of the conflict of interest it can create, but if they come to me openly and willing how can I refuse?

I gave my dad an herbal tincture formula and some diet and supplement advice. I also gave him a glycemic index guide to help educate him on the sugar levels in foods and how they affect the body, and told him to start reading food labels.

When he started to read the labels on food he couldn’t believe how much sugar was in everything, not to mention the other types of code words for sugar like glucose, fructose, high-fructose corn syrups, now under the code word corn sugar, and the list goes on. He said no wonder diabetes is a problem; the over-consumption of refined sugars is killing people.

The danger with diabetes is that high levels of sugar destroy blood vessels which cause glaucoma, heart disease, and stroke. It is also good to avoid bad fats like hydrogenated, animal saturated fats, and processed and refined foods, because they destroy blood vessels just like high levels of sugar do.

When my dad went back to the doctor 4 months later he was no longer diabetic and his blood sugar was under control!!! My dad stuck with the change in diet and in 4 months he lost 20 pounds and is diabetes free! It is a comfortable weight loss of 5 pounds per month and he will be less likely to put it back on. He also avoided getting a knee operation for his arthritis, and now has less arthritic flare-ups and is pharmaceutical free. Not many seniors can say they are pharmaceutical free! The doctor also asked my dad tips about how to lower his own blood sugar.

My dad has stuck with his all natural diet, takes herbs and supplements and has maintained his healthy weight. Now he feels great, and everyone in my family has received better health benefits because of this immense change in diet.

When the problem is detected early the better the chances are for rapid recovery. An individual detailed diet is recommended because everyone is different and unique.
