    When it comes to Diabetes there are two major points of view.

    First, the traditional Western Medicine view is that that is a group of diseases with high blood glucose levels, that is the result of the body's ability to produce and/or use insulin. A key component of this view is that one is to live with Diabetes their entire life. The result is that people remain in some form of treatment for many years

    Second, the non traditional view that this is an issue related to fats. When the base problem of fats being out of balance has been corrected the Diabetes will be corrected. This view is one in which Diabetes is something that can be corrected relatively easily.

    There are several advantages and disadvantages of each approach.

    The traditional Western Medicine approach is one in which one’s doctor takes a great deal of responsibility. The doctor is meeting with the patient on a regular basis to make sure that the person holds to the prescribed diet and drugs. An important part of this lifelong process for many is taking powerful drugs that have documented side effects.

    In the non traditional view the person is one who takes control of their health. They then bear the sole responsibility for the success or failure of dealing with Diabetes. In this method Diabetes is conquered by most people, and without the side effects of powerful drugs.

    For more information about the traditional Western Medicine approach please speak to your licensed health care provider. They will be able to point you to resources that have been government approved.

    In the non-traditional view Diabetes is related to the way that the body deals with different types of fats and how that some fats the body is not able to deal with efficiently.

    The issue is based not upon a lack of insulin, but that an unhealthy fat has coating the cells in the body. This acts to blocking insulin and glycogen (sugar from digested food) from entering the cells. The excess glycogen then needs to be filtered by the kidneys then removed by urine as sugar. In the end the body cells are starved of key nutrients.

    Damage to the body does not stop at this it continues to increase if the Diabetes is not dealt with there are other effects that some people suffer. High blood pressure and Diabetic coma happens when the blood vessels in the brain close off due to fatty deposits. Nerve damage is also possible allowing for one to injure their fingers and toes. The sugar in the blood and damaged tissue allows for wounds that are hard to heal and become infected and hard to heal. In too many cases these have to be amputated.

    This is a very grim sounding situation for one to be in.

    In the traditional Western Medicine the Diabetes problem is one that relates to sugar. In the non-traditional view the problem is not one of sugar, but fat. The sugar is the result of a problem with bad fats, sugar it is the symptom of the problem.

    There is a lot of confusion and incomplete information as it relates to fats. There is a detailed explanation of fats in article “xxx”

    One of the earliest ways to deal with bad fats is based upon the research of Dr. Johanna Budwig. She developed a technique that people have reported great success using Cottage Cheese and Flax seed oil. There is a detailed article on this “xxx”

    There are a common vegetable and a popular spice that both have been reported by many to have helped people with the problem of Diabetes. These two items both help by addressing the not so much the sugar issue, but the root cause of a fat problem.

    The cucumber contains a protein-digesting enzyme called Erepsin. Erepsin naturally occurs in the digestive juices and breaks peptones or polypeptides into amino acids.

    There is also Saponin which acts like a soap. Think how when you wash a dish that soap changes the way that oil behaves, this same type of effect is happening within the blood streams and tissues of the body.

    What happens is that the film of oil blocking the insulin and glycogen from enter cells, this results is a lower sugar level in the body and urine.

    This is surprising since a Cucumber is 96.5% (???) water. Yet here is something so simple that is able to do so much.

    It has been reported that people have found that eating one raw cucumber a day skin and all for two weeks has greatly benefitted them. If possible try to have an organic cucumber as they are often sprayed with many toxic chemicals.

    The spice is cinnamon, it is called by many a fat burner, but this is not totally accurate. Cinnamon increases the insulin sensitivity of the body. The fat cells of the body have their glucose metabolism increased twenty-fold. This means that cinnamon can help reduce the amount of insulin necessary for glucose metabolism.

    The amount of cinnamon to use is something that there are different thoughts about. There have been reports that taking ¼ teaspoon a day does very little and as such the benefits have been exaggerated. There are people who report of having great benefit when using ½ teaspoon twice a day. It is possible that the difference on the reports is related to the amount of cinnamon ingested, or the purity and concentration.

    Cinnamon has been observed to reduce the fasting blood sugar by 25%, this is a fantastic real life number. At the same time it does not change the result of the Glucose tolerance test, which is based upon a consumption of an amount of sugar that no one should ever have who is concerned about their health. One needs to judge what is most important and is of real life benefit.

    When facing Diabetes one needs to take action. The price that one pays for inaction is a steep and painful one.
