Default Diachrome

A recent study adds to a substantial body of research that indicates that a combination of chromium picolinate and biotin help nutritionally manage diabetes.

"Nutrition 21 is publicizing the results of a study conducted on its patented Diachrome as significantly improving the glycemic levels of patients with poor blood sugar levels being treated with oral anti-diabetic medication."

Default Ozone, chromium and diabetes

Below is a recent reply by Dr. Saul Pressman to a forum member who asked whether ozone was useful for treating diabetes. Also, it is a good indication that we should be sure to consume chromium, whether in foods or supplements, early on.
**********************


Diabetes starts as a chromium deficiency. Since North American soils are generally deficient in chromium, the problem is widespread.
So, prevention consists of taking chromium (plus vanadium) daily. Cinnamon is a good source.

Once the deficiency has become chronic over many years, deterioration sets in. Sugar levels are high and the red blood cells begin to clump together. When that happens, microcirculation suffers and problems begin to develop in the extremities, and the eyes, as the red blood cells are not able to get down the smallest capillaries when they are joined to their neighbour.

So, a major beneficial effect of ozone is to cause the red blood cells to separate from one other, which restores microcirculation. This improvement alone is of great value, and has saved the sight of many people.

If the condition is not dealt with, further deterioration will take place, and often the legs will start to die. They turn color to red and then black, and then gangrene sets in, and the surgeon stands ready to make a nice sum cutting them off. Bagging the leg(s) with ozone can reverse this problem, and prevent needless amputation.

So, the problem needs to be addressed on two fronts : cleansing and nutrition. Of course, these pillars of naturopathy are the approach for ALL diseases.

Yep, and didn't we just have a testimonial on the MMS thread about how RBS's look before and after mms treatment?

I have see dark field photos before of RBCs before and after MMS. All the cells unclumped, looking healthy and happy.
Lots of ozone folks have found mms as effective as ozone, and then you now and then have an mms testimonial coming forward of diabetes cured with mms.

I'm curious, how many folks with diabetes are here? I've had Type I (completely insulin dependent) practically my whole life.

I agree that certain nutrients assist the management of diabetes, but in my experience, nutrition and exercise are the foundation of managing the condition.

So far, I've survived numerous complications of long-term diabetes (I didn't have blood glucose meters or carb counting/control until the 1990s!) and I'd like to just say that diabetes treatment is about having a healthy mindset, knowing exactly what it is, understanding that each body with diabetes responds a little differently to various factors - and that it is primarily up to the person with diabetes him/herself to learn and understand what his/her body needs.

This is in no way intended to minimize the information provided here about research and different things that can help; it is intended to assist anybody with diabetes to see that managing diabetes is not simply taking this supplement or that supplement but a lifestyle matter!

Cheers,
BB

I have type 2 diabetes and I noticed bran, whole grains, onions(chromium) and berries are the best food. But ya exercise and a variety of fruits and vegetables are also the best. I don't really believe there is a magic people, or at least I haven't found it yet.

I think it depends a lot on which veggies you eat, paying attention to the Glycemic load/index for those on the low end of the scale. And especially
staying away from white flour products, including pastas. I think there may
be a few pastas made with veggies instead of flour. Also, NO white potatoes.
Sweet potato is fine if not too large.

With breads, Dr Oz said recently that Rye and Pumpernickel breads are better
for Diabetics than All others. I bought one of those long/thin cocktail loaves of the Pumpernickel last week when Kroger had them on sale for $1.00 each.
Wish I'd bought 2 more to freeze. Finally, I can enjoy a sandwich again, tho
small, it beats none at all. Eating 2, even 4 of those tiny slices, had no
negative effects on my blood sugar.
No, there's no magic Pill for Diabetes but paying attention to what/how you
eat can work for you. Salads are especially good.

Sourdough bread is also better, it affects blood sugar slowly due to the way it's made.

Metabolic Balance has a diet that is given to you after they test what foods are best for you. You are given a blueprint of what works for you. I have seen that work very well. Gabrial Cousins has turned around diabetic conditions.

Everyone calls these a cure, they are only are if you change you lifestyle. That is not what people want to hear. Cure means to most people eat what you want, and be healthy. The condition is dependent on your lifestyle. The reason it is on the rise is because the food supply is processed and the portions are too large.

No I hear it said that there is no cure. Dr Julain Whitaker states that some cases can be cured. MMS testimonials show that there is a cure through that for some also who venture to try it.

I get pretty annoyed when I hear statements that say there is no cure to this or that. I just don't believe it. If you have not found your cure it is because you have not looked in the right direction or done the right work. This limited belief system will keep you from health.

Only type one is likely not to be cured because the physiological components are not present to do the work

That was a very interesting comment by doctor pressman, stating diabetes starts as a chromium deficiency.

He is right when he says the soil is deficient in chromium, especially in Saskatchewan where I live. I wonder if there is some type of map that could link chromium deficient soil to diabetes, like there is for vitamin D and the further you go from the equator.

Type 2 diabetes is easily reversed. I did it, its not that difficult. Here is a theory:

Fat causes insulin resistance, thus the more overweight you are the better your chances to be diabetic. What else causes insulin resistance? Fructose is really bad. Yes, there is a small amount of fructose in fruit and some vegetables, but there is also vitamin C, thus they seem to cancel each other out.

Fructose is in almost every fast food item and in processed food. High fructose corn syrup is the biggest offender, contributing to the diabetes epidemic through soda and processed fruit drinks.

Fructose is not processed by the liver in the same way that glucose is, or even sucrose.

Next, grains are big contributors to diabetes, not because grains are bad for you, but because they are generally stored in bins or silos, where they can become contaminated with several varieties of fungus, and when those grains are processed and consumed, the fungus is also consumed.

There is also the fact that most grains are now genetically modified, however, you will not be able to tell since the FDA does not require this fact be on the food labels.

GMO grain seeds are injected with organisms, and when the plant starts to grow the whole field can be sprayed with roundup, and will not kill the protected plant, but will kill everything around it. This organism remains in the plant even after harvest, and is also consumed when turned into a processed food, such as cereal. It is my belief that diseases such as Morgellons is a direct result of eating GMO foods.

When people consume grain that is contaminated with fungus, changes occur. The fungus grows and spreads throughout the body. As with any organism, fungi require food. They injest sugar in all its forms, including refined carbs, and expel mycotoxins, and it is these very toxic poisons that cause diseases such as diabetes.

If a type 2 diabetic were to eliminate refined carbs and all grains from the diet, exercise on a regular basis, and take supplements that are known to be strong antifungals, the fungus dies off slowly, the cells become less insulin resistant, and blood sugar reverts back to normal.

Cinnamon works great for diabetics because it is a very strong antifungal. So is resveratrol, olive leaf, grapefruit seed extract, and am assuming chromium in the form of chromium picolinate.

Exercise is crucial because it speeds up the heart, which pumps the blood faster, getting nutrients and oxygen to the cells faster, and also taking away the toxic debris faster.

Vitamin D3 is also linked to diabetes. The more deficient you are, the better your chances of being diabetic. Same goes for MS.
D3 turns on as many as 2000 genes, which produce substances that kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

With a few lifestyle changes, anyone can beat T2 diabetes.

Just want to note that fructose and High Fructose Corn Syrup are completely different things so it's important to differentiate between them when reading articles or passing along information about how they each affect health.

Brief explanation of the difference and how high fructose corn syrup affects health:

I guess there are cures. However, usually a change of lifestyle is what helps. Many conditions come about, because of poor lifestyle choices. Dr. Gabrial Counsin has helped many type 2 diabetics get off medication. In the video they are all told they are cured.

That is true, however it is not a cure in the way we come to think of the term. If they go back to their original eating, they will have the condition return. Now, if a certain supplement does the job, that would be a little different. Perhaps the condition came about because of nutritional deficiencies. Now, adding this nutrient back can be called a cure for some people.

Fructose is a poison and high fructose corn syrup is a poison.

The only difference is that fruit and veggies contain high fibre and vitamin C, which seems to neutralize the effects of the fructose, like "poison with the antidote".

The following youtube video explains this very well (at 1hour and 13 minutes):
