Recent Reports from Johns Hopkins, 1997:
High doses of Chromium Polynicotinate (1000 mcgm/day) can reverse mild to moderate Type II Diabetes in 6-8 months.
Low serum magnesium may be a strong independent predictor of Type II Diabetes.
Principles of Treatment
Short-term, 3-5 days
Stop all medications, drink only water or herb teas
Check blood glucose 3 times a day
Stop fast when glucose falls to normal, or if glucose rises instead of falling
Most favorable diet is vegetarian - low-fat, high fiber, mostly natural unrefined vegetables, whole grains with a few nuts, with moderate use of fruits; raw foods in abundance.
Makes counting calories and exchange diets largely unnecessary.
Diabetes and Milk Products
Milk is diabetogenic.
Milk naturally contains growth promoting factors. This encourages overgrowth.
Galactose may specifically injure the pancreas.
Lactose overworks the entire digestive tract.
Exercise can both prevent and reduce severity
“ Increased physical activity delays the onset…” of Type II diabetes.
The Medical College of South Carolina in 1998 reported: “In a study of about 1,500 men and women… who exercised - even moderately - made more efficient use of insulin to metabolize food.”
Previous studies had shown vigorous exercise was beneficial, but this study showed that even a 30 minute stroll daily significantly reduced the risk of diabetes.
