Hidden Diabetes Cures

Cure Diabetes Naturally, Don't Just Treat It With Drugs

Home > Cause of Type 1 Diabetes

The likely Cause of Type 1 Diabetes in infants, also known as juvenile onset diabetes, is the consumption of cows milk, and vaccinations. Changing your diet can reduce or eliminate insulin requirements, and there may be cures.

The pancreas of Type 1 diabetics cannot produce insulin because insulin producing cells have been destroyed due to an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks itself. Since the ability to produce insulin is gone, it would seem that diet would have no role to play.

In his book The China Study, Dr. Campbell cites several studies showing that diabetics were able to reduce their insulin medication after switching to a high-fiber, high carbohydrate, low-fat diet.

One researcher put his subjects on whole plant foods and the equivalent of a cold cut or two of meat each day. After three weeks, Type 1 diabetic patients were able to reduce their insulin by an average of 40%. Their blood sugar improved dramatically, and their cholesterol dropped by 30%.

The above experimental diet did not go as far as Dr. Campbell suggests in The China Study. Switching to a plant based meat-free diet was found to be the most beneficial for health all around.

Cows Milk Is Implicated in Type 1 Diabetes

You will never see the above sentence as a headline, regardless of the scientific research. The impact on the dairy industry would be monumental.

Dr. Campbell, in The China Study, tells of a study measuring the antibodies to milk protein. All 142 diabetic children had antibody levels higher than 3.55, while all 79 normal children had levels less than 3.55; there was no overlap. This implied: 1) Children with more antibodies consumed more cows milk; and 2) increased antibodies may produce diabetes Type 1.

The mechanism of how cow's milk might produce diabetes Type 1:

An infant is weaned from the breast too early and consumes cows milk, but the digestion is not complete and some protein fragments enter the blood stream. The immune system recognizes these fragments as invaders, and goes about destroying them. Unfortunately, some of the fragments look like cells of the pancreas responsible for making insulin. The immune system can't tell the difference, and goes about destroying them as well, resulting in a pancreas that can't produce insulin.

In light of the studies, the American Academy of Pediatrics in 1994 "strongly encouraged" that infants in families where diabetes is more common, not be fed cows milk for the first two years of their life. Other studies have found that cows milk increases the risk of diabetes Type 1 by 5 or 6 times. The findings confirm the dangers of cows milk, especially to those children who are genetically susceptible.

Worldwide, diabetes Type 1 is growing at a rate of 3% each year.

While on the subject of milk, The China Study had evidence that increased cows milk consumption was associated with increased hip fractures and multiple sclerosis. But doesn't milk build strong bones? Apparently not.

Vaccinations are Implicated in Diabetes Type 1

Childhood vaccinations have been implicated with type 1 diabetes. Dr. J. Bart Classen, an immunologist at Classen Immunotherapies, presented data that vaccines cause approximately 80% of cases of insulin dependent diabetes in children who have received multiple vaccines starting after 2 month of life. This included vaccines for pertussis, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, hemophilus influenza and others. Disease may not develop until four or more years after being vaccinated.

Cures for Diabetes Type 1

With diabetes Type 1, the cells of the pancreas responsible for manufacturing insulin have been destroyed. These are called Beta cells, clusters of endocrine cells within the pancreas located in the islets of Langerhans. This might lead you to believe that a cure is not possible; however a study has shown that gymnema sylvestre, an herb, is capable of restoring the function of these cells.

In 1990, at the Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Diabetes (Kilpauk Medical College Hospital), Madras, India, E.R.B. Shanmugasundaram, et al., gave 400 mg/day of gymnema sylvestre extract to 27 patients with diabetes Type 1. Insulin requirements and excessive excretion of glucose in the urine (glucosuria) were reduced in 22 patients, while blood sugar (glucose) levels were reduced in 25. There were no side effects or any gastrointestinal disturbances, and five patients even reported a sense of greater well being. Beta cell function was also increased in these patients.

Another study upon animals, published in the same journal, found that normal, balanced blood-sugar levels were restored and that the numbers of beta cells were actually doubled.

Don't look for a cure from the US medical establishment any time soon; why would they want to kill a cash cow? You will have to pursue this avenue on your own, hopefully with help from your doctor.
