                  The truth about Diabetes

                                                A 21st Century revelation

This book may save your life!

This E-book is not about denigration of the medical profession. It is about a different curriculum.

A curriculum researched,  proposed and practiced about 450 years B.C.E. by the alleged father of modern medicine, the Greek physician Hippocrates.

The Institute formed in 1981 by nutrition-oriented practitioners is devoted to the "original teachings" continuously confirmed, supported and broadened by the "masters" in particular, of the past seventy years. There can be no doubt that Hippocrates was the originator of Environmental Medicine, known today in several guises including Biological and/or Functional Medicine.

Reading this book will certainly broaden the knowledge of the individual.

Applying that knowledge will have a significant outcome in improving the overall health of the individual.

The Institutes protocols are the result of meticulous research of many pioneers of nutritional medicine, interestingly, many of who were Doctors of Dentistry. Of the many, none stand above Roger J Williams. The father and author of "Biochemical Individuality" and who explained the role of various nutrients in preventing what he called Genetotrophic diseases.

Genetotrophic diseases are those for which genetic uniquenesses create demands for specific needs of nutrients beyond average to facilitate optimal function and prevent premature disease. In plain English each and every one of us is born into this world with a genetic need for one or more nutrients.

When these specific needs are not met, in a given individual, disease results.

Biochemical individuality proves that each and every one of us is as individual in our biochemical (nutrient) needs, and as differing as are our fingerprints. The importance of that fact, is magnified by the sheer volume of cells that comprise the human body. Numbering up to seventy five trillion cells, each requiring up to ninety nutrients, potable water and fresh air for its very existence. Failure of the system to present the cell with adequate quantity and quality of the vital ingredients, results in the premature death of the Cell.

Factors, which accelerate the aging process include but are not confined to; excessive consumption of simple sugars including fructose (sugar of fruit), hyperinsulinism (too much) and Insulin resistance i.e., Diabetes.

One of several factors, which retard the aging process is dietary restriction.

This is part of the story of the evolution of medicine as it applies to the human environment. We need to go back to around 450 BC when the alleged father of modern medicine said:

"It seems to me to be necessary for every physician to be skilled in nature and to strive to know, if he wants to perform his duties, what man is in relation to the food and drink he consumes and to all his other occupations, as well as their effects on everyone else. Because if he does not know what effects these things have on man, he cannot know the consequences that result from them.

If he does not pay attention to these things, or paying attention does not understand them, how can he understand the diseases, which befall man? For man is affected by every one of these things and changed by them in numerous ways. The whole of his life is subjected to them, whether in health, convalescence or disease. Nothing else, therefore, can be more important than to know these things.
                                           (Hippocrates 450 BC.)

As a clinician these past twenty-two years and for most of that time researching the determinants of chronic illness conditions, one is frustrated at the continuance of so called health authorities that refuse to address "prevention" of illness conditions.

In Australia, history records that in the first National Health Survey Summary of 1947 it was reported that approximately 42% of the population suffered one or more chronic illness conditions. These are defined as any illness condition lasting six months or more.

The last health Summary (2001) showed that more than 70% of Australians suffered one or more chronic illness conditions. Killer diseases have escalated out of control during the same period and thorough scrutinizing of the various authorities statistics will often reveal a far from truthful report. These statistics may be extrapolated to The U.S.A. the U.K. and many other industrialized nations.

This book  then contains information, the result of decades of research backed by more than 100 clinical references which, if applied is guaranteed to improve the quality of life of the individual by at least 50%. It will serve the reader well to remember that


SITUATIONAL ANALYSIS

WORLD-WIDE CATASTROPHE

Reuters Health August 25, 2003 reported:

The number of people with diabetes worldwide is rising so quickly that governments and social security systems may not be able to keep up with expenses by 2025. Over 300 million people are at risk of developing diabetes globally, and it's estimated that health care for people with diabetes worldwide already costs at least $153 billion each year. The number of people with diabetes may rise from 194 million to 333 million by 2025, and health care costs could increase to $396 billion during this timeframe.

Diabetes type II can often be prevented or controlled with careful attention to what you eat and how you exercise.

Anita Manning, "USA Today," August 24, 2000 reported:

According to endocrinologist Frank Vinicor of the CDC "We're seeing the greatest increase in obesity and lack of physical activity" in people in their 30's, so therefore it is not surprising to find the 70% increase in just 8 years. "We are now beginning to see the consequences of physical inactivity and weight gain that go well beyond feeling good about yourself or cosmetic issues."

The following is a summary of their findings for the percent of the total population that has been diagnosed with diabetes:

∑ Caucasian

1990 - 4.6%

1998 - 5.9%

∑ African-American

1990 - 7.0%

1998 -8.9%

∑ Hispanic

1990 - 5.6%

1998 - 7.7%

The researchers also note that their results probably significantly underestimate the percentage of people with diabetes, since it is not uncommon for the disorder to be present for as long as 12 years before being properly diagnosed.

It is estimated at the time of writing that approximately  17,000,000 Americans have diabetes,. Equating with approximately 6.2% of the population. At the current rate of increase there are about one million new cases per year. Most researchers agree that at least that number again are presently undiagnosed.

These statistics could safely be extrapolated in the case of Caucasians to most industrialized western countries. Some variations might apply to indigenous peoples. Certainly in Australia, the current number of diabetics is at least one million with an increase of 50% by the year 2010 predicted by Diabetes Australia (July 2004). Aboriginals and those perhaps of part aboriginal genes have an even higher incidence of Diabetes Type 2, if they live that long.

Low Blood sugar or hypoglycemia is a largely unrecognized precursor to full-blown diabetes and affects perhaps as many as 50% of the population from time to time. Syndrome X is hypoglycemia also known as hyperinsulinism plus overweight or obese and high blood pressure.

Here are just a few of more than one hundred associated symptoms of hypoglycemia:

Craving for simple sugars. (Mostly foods derived from white flour, white rice, and sugar or glucose including syrups.)

Lack of Energy

Confusion

Anxiety

Panic Attack The symptoms of diabetes too often go unrecognized by the individual.

Symptoms progressively of thirst, hunger and frequent urination.

It has been the author's experience that some doctors still do not recognize or give credence to the fact that hypoglycemia (low blood glucose) is a precursor to full-blown diabetes. These are mostly of the old school. Whereas,  the younger fraternity are increasingly opening up to complimentary therapies. The future certainly needs integrated medicine.

Having seen literally thousands of patients with the unmistakable pathology of hypoglycemia one used to be amazed when the patient having recently seen a general practitioner (almost always of the old school) presenting with exactly the same symptoms to be told " don't worry about it just eat some sugar when you have the symptoms.

Testimonial
I have followed the Super E Plan and within one week my fasting blood glucose had dropped from 12mm/l to 5.4mm/l. I feel more energy too, thank you. F.M (diabetic)

 

 

Hypoglycemia is a sort of "Catch 22" situation where insulin over-counteracts high blood sugar levels, leading to low blood sugar, with consequent craving for more sugar, or more correctly carbohydrates. This is hyperinsulinism!

In other words the patient experiences mild to significant episodes of rebounds from consuming too many high glycemic foods with consequent overreaction of the pancreas in controlling the elevated blood sugar. Often with consequent

Nervousness

Depression

Fatigue

Hypoglycemia increases the craving for alcohol thus increasing the risk of alcohol dependency and abuse. Carbohydrate craving is also a maker for an essential element, which is covered in depth in the E-Book. As are all other foods, nutrients and herbs beneficial and detrimental.

Some female readers will be well aware of the correlation of some of the above symptoms premenstrually. And will recall the cravings for the chocolate, white bread, cakes, biscuits or other sugar rich foods.

Testimonial
Life is really looking up.  I'm feeling healthier than I have for more than four months - and it's all due to your knowledge and skills. 

I'm very grateful.

I've spent five years working at getting well, trekking from one 'expert' to another, becoming frustrated. 

I had a stress test yesterday, the treadmill device with breathing, heart and blood pressure being monitored.  My results were better than many people my age and certainly significantly better than the last time I was tested. 

I haven't had a massive energy loss for more than a week.  I feel so positive.   

I've recommended you to a number of other people who have commented on how well I am.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. M.H.

 

 

The truth about DIABETES is devoted to proven scientific information from properly conducted clinical trials demonstrating that not only is the disease itself preventable but that for those already victims of the disease how to prevent and/or effectively treat the deadly Risk Factors, affecting the cardiovascular system especially in the eyes, kidneys and extremities, which cause the premature death of the majority of diabetics.

These risk factors may exist without diabetes. The treatment and prevention are the same.
