The power of vitamin C, Part 2


   Vitamin C beats swine flu

Dr. Thomas Levy, an expert on the effects of vitamin C on viruses and author of the book Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Disease and Toxins says: "I have come across a flu virus to that vitamin C would not have Virucidal effect until enough vitamin C reaches the virus, as in any acute infection. I do not know for Tamiflu, but vitamin C certainly has no negative side effects. "

In connection with the bird flu, an immunologist Dr. Robert Cathcart, who is in vitamin C treated thousands of cases of life-threatening infectious diseases, said: "The treatment of avian flu to large doses of ascorbate would be the same as any other flu, but the severity of disease suggests that might be required unusually high oral doses of ascorbic acid or even intravenous sodium ascorbate. I have not seen any flu that has not been cured or substantially alleviated by massive doses of vitamin C, but it is possible that the bird flu still need higher doses. "
It is interesting that at the time of the fear of avian and swine influenza in Croatia were almost completely absent seasonal flu. We thank you to the fact that the citizens instead of vaccines in large numbers turned to good old lemon and tea?

Australian and New Zealand media have recently published a story about the miraculous recovery of 56-year-old farmers "returned from the dead " large doses of vitamin C. He died of swine flu.
New Zealand farmer Alan Smith was admitted to hospital in Auckland first July 2009. with full respiratory arrest, was connected to a device for artificial respiration. Tests confirmed that he was suffering from swine flu H1N1. After spending 20 days on the machines in the induced coma medical team said that the family is no more hope and that it intends to exclude from the apparatus.

His family was not ready to come to terms with this and asked the doctor to try high-dose intravenous vitamin C. The doctors refused, explaining that it is an unrecognized treatment that would not have had any effect. Altercation broke out and the family was forced to hire a top lawyer who managed to carve for treatment of vitamin C against the wishes of doctors. Mr. Smith is rapidly recovered after only two days of such treatment. After a week removed from the apparatus. Today he is alive and well and working on his farm.

Just as tragically ignorant doctors routinely give vitamin C is not suffering from swine flu, or other forms of influenza. What is most shocking is that doctors initially refused to mention the desire to respect the family and has already written off the man to give inexpensive and safe treatment. That the family was not informed enough and persistent and was not able to hire an attorney today to Alan Smith was part of the statistics on deaths from the epidemic of swine flu. As the only Klenner was right when he said: "Some doctors would rather stood by and watched as their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because of their limited minds it exists only as a vitamin."

   Other diseases

Numerous researchers have reported the successful treatment of a variety of other diseases with injections of large doses of vitamin C. One of the first Jungeblut's finding was that vitamin C inactivates diphtheria toxin. Later he came to the following conclusion: "Vitamin C can be considered truly Antioxidant and antivirus vitamin." Klenner reported the successful treatment of diphtheria, herpes zoster, chicken pox, measles, mumps and other diseases. Among other things 1948th described how her daughter cured with vitamin C for measles after it was deliberately sent to play with the children infected with measles. When the children given 1000 mg vitamin C orally every 2 hours all evidence of infection have disappeared for 48 hours.

Akira Murata Kyushu University also has established the effectiveness of vitamin C as a treatment for measles and mumps. In surveys conducted between the 1967th and 1976. Morishige and Murata found that high doses of vitamin C greatly reduce the incidence of viral hepatitis B after blood transfusion in a hospital in Fukuoka. The incidence of hepatitis in patients who did not receive vitamin C or treated with low doses was 7 percent, versus 0.2 percent (of which no cases of hepatitis B) among those who received 2 grams of vitamin C daily.

Many women claim that the large doses of oral vitamin C cured of human papilloma virus (HPV). Given that some types of HPV infection and associated with cervical cancer, and that substantial efforts and resources invested in developing a vaccine against HPV, it is surprising that almost no research on the effectiveness of vitamin C. However, from a survey conducted in 2003 . it is evident that the risk of persistent HPV infection was significantly lower among women with high intake of vitamin C.
Dr. med. William J. McCormick, who is among the first to advocate giving intravenous dose of one gram of ascorbate stated: "Vitamin C is a specific antagonist of chemical and bacterial toxins." McCormick also noted that people with cancer typically have very low levels of vitamin C in their tissues, estimating that they lack about 4500 mg of the vitamin. McCormick used the treatment with oral and parenteral vitamin C in many infectious diseases, with the results of which were faster and better than those with the then available antibiotics. Here are some examples that describe:

"(1) Active TB cases treated by the author as follows: 1000 mg of vitamin C intravenously every day or every other day for three weeks, in combination with 500 mg orally, in addition to heavy intake of citrus juice. Since the beginning of the temperature fell and remained at normal levels. Cough and sputum production are completely stopped, there is a weight gain of almost ten pounds (4.5 kg). (2) In the case of chronic pelvic infection, with frequent exacerbation during the past six years after a spontaneous abortion, was given 1000 mg of vitamin C intravenously twice daily, during 2 ½ days (only 5 injections). WBC count at the start of treatment was 19 200. The next measurement was taken on the third day showed a decrease in 6700. The patient is then placed on an oral dose of 500 mg daily for maintenance, in addition to heavy intake of citrus juice. The patient is now symptom-free for almost a year. (3)

The case of acute sepsis developed in older women after infection of the wound on his arm. During the initial examination, there was a marked swelling and redness of the hands and forearms, and the temperature was 103 ° F [39.5 ° C]. 1000 mg vitamin C was applied under the skin of a 1500 oral, with an abundant intake of orange juice. The next day, inflammatory swelling and fever were reduced to normal levels and the patient recovered quickly. (4) Several cases of scarlet fever were given vitamin C intravenously and orally, 2000 mg daily. In all the temperature dropped to normal within a few hours, for three or four days the patients were symptom-free. "

There is a possibility that vitamin C is useful even in the prevention and treatment of rabies. Indian scientists are looking for alternative means for inactivating rabies virus instead of the expensive and carcinogenic beta propiolakton, found that vitamin C in the optimal concentration of 0.5 mg / ml after 72 hours of completely inactivating the virus. Dr. Stanko Banic from the Institute of Microbiology, Medical Faculty in Ljubljana in the journal Nature described the experiments conducted on guinea pigs. Guinea pigs were inoculated emulsion rabies infected rabbit brain, and vitamin C treatment was started 6 hours after inoculation and lasted 7 days. Dose used was 100 mg per kg body weight twice daily. After the 14 days between the control animals was 70 percent dead, and 35.42 percent among the treated. The same author also found that vitamin C significantly increases the creation of interferon alpha in patients vaccination against rabies.

   Large doses are - normal dose?

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamin C has recently been corrected from 60 mg to 90 mg per day for men and 75 mg for women (in Croatia from 60 to 80 mg). This is the dose that should satisfy the needs of 97.5 per cent. Of course, there are questions as to the remaining 2.5 percent of the population and what does "meet the needs?"

It is the dose that is generally determined based on the prevention of scurvy, a disease of lack of vitamin C. Although these doses are sufficient for the average person does not get sick from scurvy, do not take into account that millions of people have increased needs because they take contraceptive pills, diabetic patients are , medications that increase the need for vitamin C and so on. These people may not suffer from scurvy, but may have subacute lack of vitamin C, which results in many other health problems, most often with chronic diseases and low immunity. Vaccines can also increase the need for vitamin C.

In summary, the recommended daily dose is not necessarily optimal dose for maintaining good health.
Pharmacology professors Steve Hickey and Hillary Roberts warned that the methods employed by the Institute of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health determined RDA flawed and that the recommendations are too low now millions of people suffering from problems such as cataracts, stroke, heart disease, etc. For example, claim that has been proven that the so-called saturation dose plasma far higher than 150 mg as previously believed and that plasma levels anyway should not be the gold standard for determining need. Moreover, warning that even the recently proposed recommended intake of 200 mg and still would not be sufficient to achieve optimal health.

It seems that the term "megadoze", which is commonly used for doses of vitamin C greater than one gram, you may actually leads to the wrong conclusion because it suggests that it is excessive and not necessary and normal doses.
The man is one of the few mammals that are unable to synthesize their own ascorbic acid to their needs. In addition to mammals, including humans it can cause some primates, guinea pig and several other species. For other species it is not a vitamin because it is produced in quantities of about 50-100 mg per kilogram of body weight per day or more. For example, goats, weight 50 kg synthesizes more than nine grams of vitamin C daily.

It is obvious that the common ancestor of hominids lost the ability to produce vitamin C because it did not need it, or your could meet the needs of the food. Analysis of the diet of primates in Panama showed that the plants that feed on extremely rich in vitamin C. It was found that one species of wild fig, Ficus yoponensis, the young leaves and immature fruit has one of the highest concentrations ever measured in a plant.
According to studies, gorillas in the wild food entries 20-30 mg vitamin C per kilogram of body weight, which is about 4.5 grams per day. It is recommended that gorillas in zoos provides 5 grams of vitamin C daily. Many monkeys and many times more entries, such as wild monkey grasper brings about 106 mg per kilogram of body weight. Transposed to a man of 70 kg, it would be 7.4 grams of vitamin C or a hundred times more than the recommended dose in human beings.

It should be noted that because of the short half-retention of vitamin C in blood plasma of five oral doses of 100 mg distributed through the day better to raise the average level in the blood than a dose of 1000 mg a day. Therefore, the optimum would be to enter it with every meal as do animals. The man is practically impossible to bring as much vitamin C a normal diet, among other things, because it is grown fruits and vegetables are generally poorer than wild-vitamins. Although it is certainly a need to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, it seems that we want to preserve good health, doomed to buy vitamin C in the form of supplements. So hurry up on their "megadoze" while not prohibitive.

The Power of Vitamin C

Prevention and control of cancer are not only less well known or "forgotten" role of vitamin C. This vitamin in high doses has proved effective in preventing and treating many diseases, particularly interesting is its effectiveness in those for whom the vaccine is usually considered the only solution.

With the coming colder months usually think of vitamin C for his role in the prevention and treatment of colds and flu. The role of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) in strengthening the immune system has long been widely known, largely thanks to the work of the famous chemist and Nobel laureate Linus Pauling that it was 1970-they began to popularize it as an effective prevention of colds.
Somewhat less known link between vitamin C and cancer. Yet in 1954. Canadian physician WJ McCormick hypothesized that cancer is a collagen disease, associated with a lack of vitamin C. Pauling demonstrated that mice that were given with food high doses of vitamin C were five times less likely of developing skin cancer after exposure to UV radiation than mice with low intake of vitamin C. In collaboration with the surgeon Ewan Cameron conducted a long clinical study on patients suffering from terminal cancer, and the results showed that the vitamin C in these patients, prolonged survival by an average of three times. It is worth noting that this was a dose of several grams a day (so-called megadoz), which are hundreds of times larger than the usual recommended doses. Paulings conclusion that vitamin C is effective in treating cancer has encountered a bitter dispute, and today in the medical community to his research is generally considered to be refuted.
Nevertheless, an American doctor Hugh D. Riordan of 1970-it is successfully used large intravenous doses of vitamin C against cancer. Dr. Riordan and his colleagues for years have written about it, but their work has remained largely neglected.
Prevention and control of cancer are not only less well known or "forgotten" role of vitamin C. This vitamin in high doses has proved effective in preventing and treating many diseases, particularly interesting is its effectiveness in those for whom the vaccine is usually considered the only solution.

  Forgotten cure for polio

With the increasing awareness of the dangers of vaccination increasing number of people decide to not want to vaccinate or unwilling to vaccinate their children. The strongest argument that opposes such a decision often cited frightening diseases such as poliomyelitis (polio) and tetanus. It is generally assumed that vaccination is only effective prevention for them. But is it really so?
Many will be surprised by the fact that more than 70 years been known that vitamin C can prevent and treat polio.
Very soon after the isolation of ascorbic acid in the 1930s began experimenting with using large doses. Among the prominent pioneers of medical therapy with vitamin C were Claus Washington Jungeblut (1898th-1976th), William J. McCormick (1880th-1968th), and Frederick R. Klenner (1907th-1984th).
CW Jungeblut in his time enjoyed the reputation of reasonably large polio researchers. In the period between the 1936th and 1939. published a series of papers that showed that giving ascorbic acid to infected monkeys poliomyelitis led to a significant mitigation of the severity of disease and resistance. Today is the Jungeblutu little information is available at the Columbia University where he taught 33 years. Even in places where it pays tribute to his work is rarely mentioned in vitamin C. What happened to the vitamin therapy against polio?
The key is that Jungeblutov work took place before the discovery of a vaccine for polio. All you then doctors could do was to prescribe medication to relieve symptoms and hope for the best. This disease was one of the biggest health problems in the U.S. and caused great fear among the population.
Albert Sabin Jungenblutove tried to repeat the experiments on monkeys, but did not get satisfactory results. In 1939. published a paper in which he concluded that vitamin C has no effect in preventing paralysis in rhesus monkeys experimentally infected with poliovirus. Sabinov negative report on the value of vitamin C in poliomyelitis Jungeblutov stopped working.
From today's perspective it is much easier to see the reasons Sabinovog failure. The dose of ascorbic acid which is used was far too small, nor the frequency of application was not sufficient to maintain high levels of ascorbic acid in the blood during the incubation of the disease.
Jungeblut claimed that the parenteral application of natural vitamin C during the incubation period still caused a significant change in disease severity and that after the fifth day of illness were required higher doses. Even the doses that he used - up to 400 mg a day - according to today's concepts are actually very small.
Sabin, on the other hand, did not follow procedures that gave him and refused to Jungeblut Jungeblutove suggestions regarding dosage. I've admitted that he seldom used more than 35 percent of the dose, which he suggested Jungeblut. At the insistence Jungeblutovo to increase dose of Sabin's just a monkey given a single dose of 400 mg.
In addition, the infection of monkeys Jungeblut used natural methods of droplets, while the Sabin virus injected monkeys, which led to the rapid development of the worst forms of the disease.
Salk in 1955. discovered the polio vaccine, becoming a national hero. Then he and Sabin developed his oral vaccine. This is a practical point placed on the official investigation of alternative therapies such as vitamin C. megadoze
Fortunately, this did not stop individuals like Frederick R. Klenner who megadozama ascorbate treated patients during the epidemic 1948th Here's how I described it:
"During the polio epidemic in North Carolina 1948th 60 cases of this disease has come under our care. These patients had all or nearly all of these signs and symptoms ...
Treatment used was vitamin C in huge doses. We gave him like any other antibiotic every two to four hours. The starting dose was 1000 to 2000 mg, depending on age. Children under four years received intramuscular injections. Since we had available laboratory equipment for determining the concentration of vitamin C in blood and urine, we accepted the temperature curve as a guide for further treatment. Rectal temperatures were recorded every two hours. If there was no reaction temperature after the second hour we gave a new dose of 1000 or 2000 mg. If after two hours came to a drop in fever, we waited another two hours until the next dose. This arrangement followed the 24 hours. After this time the temperature would be lowered constantly, so we gave doses from 1000 to 2000 mg every six hours for the next 48 hours. All patients were clinically well after 72 hours. After three patients experienced a deterioration, we continued with the drug for at least another 48 hours - by 1000 to 2000 mg every eight to 12 hours. In all cases in which FNA was performed in the spine is generally determined by the return of fluid to normal after the second day of treatment. "
Klenner is described by many of the fascinating history of the cases. As an example we mention the case of five-year girl suffering from polio. The first time a girl hits the past four days, both legs were paralyzed. The right leg was completely limp, and the left has found that 85 percent of the deprived. The pain was especially strong in the knees and lumbar area. With massage therapy was initiated only vitamin C. After four days of therapy with injections of vitamin C a child again could move both legs, but only a very slow and conscious movements. The girl was discharged after four days in the hospital to continue treatment with oral vitamin C and fruit juice next week. Eleventh day the child is to walk again, and to 19 days there was complete return of sensory and motor functions, and there was no permanent disability.
During the 1950s some doctors around the world have tried Klennerov recipe. Many of them still did not believe in the benefits and safety of such large doses, and those who have used lower doses reported ineffectiveness. Those who have followed the recommendations of its reported good results. Dr. H. Bauer of the University Clinic in Basel, Switzerland 1952nd reported good results with doses of 10 to 20 grams a day for his patients. Dr. Edward Greer used a 50 to 80 grams a day, clocking 1955th good clinical results with five serious cases of polio. Dr. Abram Hoffer remembers that controlled studies conducted in Britain in the late fifties to 70 young victims of polio confirmed the effectiveness of vitamin C. All patients who received vitamin C were completely recovered, while a substantial number of those who did not suffer some permanent damage. That study was never published because in the meantime discovered the vaccine.

  Debridements vitamin

Jungeblut in 1937. demonstrated that ascorbate inactivates tetanus toxin in vitro. This deactivation is not due to acidification, as occurs when the pH is held constant. Although he has used relatively low doses proved that vitamin C provides at least partial protection against tetanus toxin in vivo. By studying the epidemic of polio in Australia 1938th Jungeblut found that the disease is associated with low status of vitamin C.
PK Dey with the Department of Physiology, University of Calcutta, has shown that vitamin C is very effective as a prophylactic and therapeutic tool in the cancellation of the lethal and convulsive effects of alkaloid strychnine. This is important because the effects of strychnine poisoning similar to those which occur during tetanus infection.
Dey was subsequently conducted a study on rats divided into five groups. The first group received twice the minimum lethal dose (MLD) of tetanus toxin. The second group also received 2 x MLD toxin and 1 gram of vitamin C per kg of body weight intraperitoneally. The next three days were given the same dose of vitamin C twice a day. The third group received a 1 g / kg of vitamin C twice daily for three days. Then they get 2 x MLD toxin, and then another three days of treatment with vitamin C in equal doses. The fourth group received 2 x MLD toxin and the appearance of local symptoms (16 to 26 hours later), rats were given 1 gram / kg of vitamin C twice daily for three days. In the fifth group of rats were given 2 x MLD toxin, and upon the occurrence of generalized tetanus (40 to 47 hours later), had received 300 mg of vitamin C intravenously.
Mice from the first group were dead after 47-65 hours. In the second group all animals survived, with very mild local symptoms. In the third group, all animals survived without any symptoms. In the fourth group vitamin C to prevent further progression of symptoms and all animals survived. In the fifth group, the intervention of vitamin C in the late stage of tetanus has also led to the survival of animals. These results have shown excellent efficacy of vitamin C in the prevention and treatment of tetanus in mice.
Given that these are terrible diseases with very high mortality surprising there had been only one controlled study of the effects of vitamin C in humans. That study, published in 1984th, was conducted on patients with tetanus in Bangladesh.
The study included 31 patients treated in the age group of 1-12 years and 27 treated patients in the age group of 13-30 years. All patients received intravenously 1000 mg of ascorbic acid per day, with normal serum treatment, sedatives and antibiotics. In a group of 1-12 years who received vitamin C did not die no patient (0 / 31), while in the control group who received only conventional therapy against tetanus, 74.2 percent of the patients succumbed (23/31). In patients aged 13-30 years, in the group with vitamin C died, 37 percent (10/27), while the control group died 68 percent (19/28).
It is evident that there is a big difference in the survival rates of younger and older patients with vitamin C, suggesting that the used dose of 1 gram was simply not enough for an adult whose body weight is greater than in children. One thing leads to this conclusion - the patients who died despite treatment with vitamin C lived, and to three-four weeks of receiving the hospital and seemed to have almost recovered, only to eventually succumb to a new surge of seizures. Most of the deaths usually occur within the first four days. It seems likely that these patients were saved that were used at higher doses.

Diabetes - the dreaded truth, The End

  The nature of this disease

Diabetes means the body as the inability to properly metabolize carbohydrates. Its main symptom is high blood glucose levels. Type 1 diabetes, occurs as a result of insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes, occurs as a result of ineffectiveness of insulin. In both these cases, blood glucose level remains elevated. In cases of insufficient amounts of insulin or its ineffectiveness, the level of sugar in the blood can not be maintained within normal limits. In the case of type 2 diabetes, high blood sugar is monitored with a chronically high insulin levels, as well as serious endocrine disorders.

Ineffective insulin is no different from effective insulin. Its ineffectiveness lies in the inability of cells to adequately respond to it. It is not about any of the biochemical absence of insulin. Hence arises that this is about a disease that is reflected in almost every cell of about 70 trillion of them, the human body. All these cells depend on the food that we eat, or nutrients they need for their work, restoration and maintenance.
Classification of diabetes as a disorder in the metabolism of carbohydrates is a traditional classification that originated from that early 19-century when very little was known about metabolic disorders. (15) Today, when we know more about these processes, much more appropriate to define type-2 diabetes as a disorder in the metabolism of fats and oils. This disorder can manifest inefficiency of insulin and consequent disturbances in carbohydrate metabolism. This legacy from the 19-century that still contributes to the creation of confusion regarding this disease.

Thus, type-2 diabetes, and its early symptoms are the hyper insulin symptoms whole organism which is manifested due to inability of cells to metabolize glucose properly. Each cell of the body, for reasons that are becoming clearer, finds himself in a situation where it is no longer able to take glucose from the blood and transports it to its interior. Glucose thus remains in the bloodstream, is stored in the form of fat or glycogen in the body, or is expelled from the body in urine.
When insulin binds to a receptor on the cell membrane, he then cause it a complex series of biochemical reactions. It then encourages one type of glucose transporter molecules-which are known under the name of GLUT4 to leave their parking lot is located within the cell and travel to the inner surface of its plasma membrane.

When they reach the membrane, they then migrate to an area within it called caveolae (16). There they help one another with a series of biochemical reactions to identify molecules of glucose, says it for himself and transported into the cell through a process called endocytosis. When hope within the cell, the glucose then becomes the fuel during its combustion in the mitochondria, which releases energy used to drive all cellular activity. Thus these GLUT4 transporters reduce the amount of glucose in the blood taking from it and transported in the cell body.

Many molecules that are located on this road to transport glucose as lipids, that is, they are fatty acids. A healthy cell membranes which is now known to play an active role in the transport of glucose, contains a substance called. complement of cis-type w = 3 unsaturated fatty acids (17) whose role is to make cell membranes more fluid, or 'slippery'. When these cis-fatty acids become chronically unavailable because of our poor diet, then their scarcity in the cell membrane REPLACE with medium-chain and short chain saturated fatty acids. The presence of these types of fatty acids leads to cell membrane and the adhesive becomes firmer as it interferes with normal transport mechanism that goes through it. (18)

Thus, in the absence of sufficient amounts of cis fatty acids of the omega 3 in our diet, reducing the mobility of GLUT4 transporters, the biochemical changes the structure of cells and the blood glucose level remains elevated.

Elsewhere in the body, the pancreas produces increased levels of insulin, liver fat of the product by excess sugar, fat cells stored excess fat, urine is produced in larger quantities, the amount of cellular energy becomes insufficient to perform normal physical activities and leads to disruption of the entire endocrine system. Finally there is a cancellation of the pancreas, excessive growth of body weight, and starts to create a balance in the human organism that is known as - a diabetic crisis.

  Medical treatment

Once the diagnosis of diabetes, modern classical medical therapy consisting of either oral hypoglycemic or insulin preparations.

• Oral hypoglycemic preparations 

Oral hypoglycemics preparations were introduced in 1955. year. According to their biophysical mode of action, these preparations are divided into five classes. (19) These classes are: Biguanides; glucosidase inhibitors; meglitidinits; sulfonilurease, and thiazolidinediones.
Biguanides lower blood sugar in three ways. They prevent its normal secretion by the liver, ie from its storage of glycogen, inhibit glucose absorption from the intestine, the food entered carbohydrates, and claims that they increase both peripheral glucose download.

Glucosidase inhibitors are designed to block the enzyme amylase, which produces the pancreas, and that normally plays a very important role in the digestion of carbohydrates. According to this theory, if it blocks the digestion of carbohydrates, then you can not get any increase in the amount of sugar in the blood.
Meglitinidi were created to stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin in patients who probably already have elevated levels of insulin in their blood. Only in rare cases, doctors measure the level of insulin. These preparations are often prescribed without really checking, and knowledge about the level of insulin in the blood. The fact that increased amounts of insulin may be as harmful as the increased amount of sugar is largely ignored.

Sulfonilureaze are just another sham whose purpose is to stimulate production of insulin. Doctors rarely determine the serum insulin level before they prescribe these medications. They are often prescribed to people suffering from type-2 diabetes, most of whom already have elevated insulin ineffective. These preparations are known for causing hypoglycemia as a side effect.

Thiazolidinediones are known to cause liver cancer. One of them, Rezulin, was approved in the U.S. with the help of certain political machinations, however, in the UK was rejected because it was already known that it causes liver cancer. The doctor who was responsible for its approval at the FDA, declined to do so. Only after he was dismissed, Rezulin was approved by a obedient officers of this organization. This preparation killed over one hundred patients and disabled many more of them, before being obtained for its withdrawal from the market. Rezulin was supposed to stimulate the download from the blood glucose by peripheral cells and blocks the normal secretion of glucose by the liver. The policy regarding placement of this product on the market as well as his hold on the market for so long, is not entirely clear. (20) In April 2000 began a trial that should shed light on the background of it all. (21)

• Insulin

Today, insulin is prescribed for both types of diabetes. Insulin by injection replaces the insulin that the body is no longer able to produce. Of course, while this treatment is needed to preserve the lives of those who suffer from diabetes type-1, its use in those who suffer from type-2 diabetes is highly debatable.

It is important to note that neither insulin nor any other oral hypoglycemic preparation have nothing to do with the treatment of one of these two types of diabetes.
Forecast that goes along with the conventional treatment involves the gradual deterioration of the general health of patients and premature death from heart failure or kidney failure or other vital organs.

  Alternative Medical Treatment

The third step towards the cure of this disease involves awareness of how to take alternative measures that are based on good science and fair.

An effective treatment that directly leads to healing, has been available for some diabetics who suffer from type-1 diabetes, and many who suffer from diabetes type-2. About 5% of all diabetics suffer from diabetes type-1, while 95% have diabetes type-2. (22) gestational diabetes is simply ordinary diabetes, if you get sick of it for women during pregnancy.

An alternative methodology for the treatment of diabetes type-1 developed in some modern hospitals in Madras, India, and several studies have been carried out confirm the effectiveness of these methods. (23) There is a renewal of the function of pancreatic beta cells, so that the pancreas can again start with the production of insulin. This approach has proven effective in over 60% of all patients in whom it was administered. The biggest complication is that you are in the body of the patient is still present the same antigens that they led to the autoimmune destruction of beta cells. If so, then the cure less likely. For reasons which we have already noted, this methodology is certainly not appear in the U.S. in the near future.
The goal of any effective alternative treatment is the repairing and restoring the body's own mechanism for controlling blood sugar. Disturbances in the operation of this mechanism eventually manifested an increasing number of different symptoms, impaired health, whose medical treatment industry makes enormous profits diabetes.

For the treatment of type-2 diabetes, the steps are as follows: (24)

• Repair of the situation disturbed mechanism for controlling blood sugar. It seems so easy as to throw the food very nicely packaged but toxic oils that are found on supermarket shelves. They must be replaced with clean, healthy and beneficial fats. This means consuming only flaxseed, fish oil and the occasional cod liver oil, until the blood sugar starts to stabilize. Then we can put food in butter, coconut oil, olive oil and clean animal fat. Read labels; stop with the consumption of cheap oil, even when they are present in food or processed food in a restaurant. Diabetics suffer from a chronic lack of minerals, so they have to replace them in the form of mineral supplements or pills of a wide range of high quality.

• Manual control of blood glucose during recovery. Under medical supervision gradually stops taking oral hypoglycemic preparations, together with all other preparations that are prescribed for the purpose of controlling their side effects. Establish a natural blood sugar control with the help of glycemic pills, frequent consumption of foods in small portions (including foods rich in vegetable fiber), regular exercise after a meal and a complete avoidance of all sugars with the use of non-toxic sweetener (aspartame and similar preparations in any case to use! !). (25) Alcohol should be avoided until the sugar stabilizes in the normal range. Care should be regularly measured and simultaneously keep a medical diary in which should record all that information.

• Re-establishing the proper balance of healthy oils and fat starts to work again after the body's natural mechanism for controlling blood sugar. All the cheap and toxic fats and oils have permanently removed from our food, and food from a restaurant that contains them. When sugar control mechanism starts to work properly again we gradually introduced into our diet and other healthy foods at the same time to continue reviewing how they reflect the level of sugar in the blood. All the data we recorded in our medical journal.

• Continue the program until it also fails to establish normal values of insulin in the blood after the blood sugar starts to stabilize in the normal range. When blood sugar drops to a normal level, the pancreas will gradually stop to over-produce insulin. This process typically takes a little longer and it must be controlled so that we through his doctor on several occasions to send blood samples for analysis to determine the serum insulin level. It is nice that when your blood sugar in normal limits, but it's even nicer when it is achieved without excess insulin in our bloodstream.

• Repair collateral damage caused by the disease. Damage to blood vessels that are caused by chronically elevated glucose levels alone will be uncontrolled medicate without conscious effort on our part. It will also be the consequence of retinopathy (damage to the retina of the eye) and peripheral neuropathy is usually self-renewal. However, when the tiny capillaries in the kidney membranes begin to 'cure' as a result of chronic increase in blood glucose, kidney tries to compensate by creating scar tissue in order to prevent it. These scars remain after the diabetes heals, because it seems that the kidney is unable to repair the damage I have on it.

Warning ... you develop retinopathy can lead to temptations to solve this problem with laser surgery. This technique of using lasers to help stop bleeding on the retina, creating scar tissue where there is a drop of blood. This scar tissue may prevent normal healing of small capillaries of the eye, after a diabetes cure. Treatment of diabetes instead of solving problems by trying to help lasers increase the chances of damage to the eyes completely healed. However, if you make intervention surgical laser, then the scars that remain after complete healing of her complicated eyes. Damage to blood vessels that arose due to a long-term increase in the amount of sugar and insulin, as well as the proliferation of Candida (Candida - the fungus) in the bloodstream, it will slowly be eliminated through improved nutrition. However, sometimes persists for several years that damage to arteries, successfully rehabilitated with the help of the entire oral. Damage to the arteries much faster can rehabilitate the entire intravenous therapy. (26) What can be done in a few years only with the help of proper nutrition, it can be done in about 6 months with intravenous therapy and efficiently is over 80% of cases. For obvious reasons, do not expect from a doctor that they will agree with that, especially if the cardiologists.

  Recovery period

Prognosis usually involves a rapid recovery from the disease and restoring normal health and energy, for several months to a year or more. The length of time largely depends on how long the duration of disease.
For those who react quickly after the discovery of the disease, and immediately take appropriate measures, it is a period of several months or less. For those who suffer from this disease over a long period, during the treatment may take up to a year or more. Thus, there are many reasons to start treatment of this disease as soon as it detects.

Up to this moment when you come to the end of this article, and if we are able to properly explain this our diabetes epidemic, you should be able to know what are its causes, what is the background of classical medical treatment, and why diabetes is a national and international disgrace.
Even more importantly, you are now familiar with one program with which everyone can help himself and that reveals a great potential to really cure this disease.

  About the author:

Thomas Smith was a tireless medical researcher who was forced to heal your diabetes because it was obvious that his doctor did not want or could not cure him.

He published the results of their research in diabetes under the name of the manual, Insulin: Our Silent Assassin (Insulin: Our Silent Killer), which is written in a manner understandable to lay persons and is also highly rated by some medical professionals. This manual describes in detail each step that needs to be done to heal type-2 diabetes, and provides plenty of details regarding what is done today in the successful treatment of diabetes type-1.

Diabetes - the dreaded truth, Part 2

   Treatment vs Treatment

This new, wondrous medicinal product expected to be effective as insulin, alleviating undesirable symptoms of the disease, but not effective in terms of eliminating their causes that cures the disease. Thus the patient had to use it until the end of his life. He would also have to meet the requirements for patenting that should not be doing any kind of natural substances because they are as such not patentable. Like insulin, it was supposed to be very profitable. Mandatory government regulation would be needed to stimulate physicians to prescribe the product. Experiments are needed to be done in order to obtain government permission, it will be very costly, to prevent the emergence of other unapproved products, as well as competition.
Such is the origin of the classic medical protocol of "treating the symptoms." By acting so, pharmaceutical companies and doctors may very well prosper in this business, and patients are nevertheless not cure, but they only temporarily control or mitigate the consequences of the disease.

Not only that, the natural products that are able to really heal this disease, must be suppressed, or withdrawn from service and quiet. They are more efficient in that more effort will be invested in their elimination while their proponents and promoters to be arrested on charges that they are charlatans. After all, we can not allow the emergence any cheap and effective natural medical preparations on the monopolized market that is specifically designed for the treatment of symptoms rather than treat the cause of the disease.

Natural substances are often able to actually cure diseases. This is precisely the reason why the use of legal leverage to these natural substances, which are often more effective than synthetic medical preparations, expelled from the market and use in connection with this word - "cure" is expelled from the medical vocabulary. So is mined and the concept of free market when the medicine works.

It is now clear that the word "cure" under the pressure of law must spew out of use. FDA has a comprehensive legal Orwellian regulation that prohibits the use of the word "cure" in connection with any competitive substance which is not used in the traditional medicine. It is precisely because many natural substances can not only cure but also to prevent illness and that it comes from being the most feared pharmaceutical companies and traditional medicine communities.

  Commercial Value of Symptoms

treatment of the disease to relieve their symptoms, it became necessary to come up with a new way for marketing of medical products. This was done in 1949 midst of an epidemic of insulin-resistant diabetes.
Thus, in 1949 American medical community re-classified the symptoms of diabetes (10) together with the symptoms of many other diseases - a separate disease. After the re-classification has been established a new diagnostic basis, so that competing medical specialty groups quickly took advantage of this opportunity, and each of them addressed to that group of symptoms which are deemed competent.
Thus, cardiologists, endocrinologist, urologists, internists, and many other specialists began to treat the symptoms of those who belonged to their domain. Since the true causes of this disease began to ignore so completely divert attention from any recovery.

Heart failure, for example, which previously considered a common consequence of diabetes, now became a separate disease which has nothing to do with diabetes. However, it was fashionable to think in terms of diabetes, "increases the risk of cardio-vascular diseases. The causal role of the disturbed system to control blood sugar levels in heart failure, is completely ignored.
In accordance with this new medical paradigm, none of the treatments offered by these specialists for heart, can not really cure the disease nor is it intended for their treatment. For example, patients who undergo bypass surgery on the heart, live an average of 3 years after it, which is almost the same as in the case of those who were not undergoing any surgical procedure (11).

Today, more than half the people who live in America suffer from one or more symptoms of the disease. At its very beginning, the disease was well known to doctors as a type-2 diabetes, insulin-resistant diabetes, diabetes of adults, or less frequently as hyperinsulinemia.
According to the American Society for heart disease, nearly 50% of Americans suffer from one or more symptoms of the disease. One third of the U.S. population is obese, while over half the population is overweight. Type 2 diabetes, which is also considered a disease of adults, now appears regularly with children six years.

Many degenerative diseases can be directly linked to disorders of the endocrine system. This disease is 30-ies, the doctors were very well known as insulin-resistant diabetes. The main cause of this disease is a disorder in regulating blood sugar levels as a result of harmful fats and oils. This disease is further complicated if there is a lack of some essential substances needed by the body to make it cope with the consequences of these metabolic poisons.

Not all fats and oils of the same. Some of them are healthy and helpful, many of them, you normally find in stores, are toxic. Their medical significance is not in terms of their division into unsaturated and saturated, as fats and oils industry would have us believe. Many of saturated fats and oils are very useful, many unsaturated oils are very toxic. In terms of their health significance, it is important to make a distinction between natural and processed, or synthesized.
Advertising of these products is very unfair by the industry for the processing of fats and oils. Their propaganda campaign aimed at creating a market for cheap waste, such as soybean oil, cotton seed and canola.

When the public was informed and aware, these oils are generally would not dare come to market, and then in the U.S. and other countries in the world - must have been much less diabetes.

  Epidemiological relationship of human life style

Since 1901.g. made the first major attempts to produce and sell food products using automated factory machinery because seen that in this field can make an enormous profit. Most of these early attempts failed because people have doubted the validity of the food was not fresh and that is poured directly from farms, and processing technology itself was pretty bad. As long as the living standard of people was at the height, these products have not had success. Company Crisco, (12) was on one occasion tried to promote one of these artificial products, such as it is distributed free to American housewives to gain their confidence and began to use it instead of the usual lard.

When margarine was thrown on the market, they are vehemently opposed to many states in which it was developed dairy industry. When the 30-ies there was a so-called. "Great Depression", margarine and Crisco companies other refined and hydrogenated products were able to penetrate into the American food market. The resistance of the dairy industry in the introduction of margarine consumption is nearly extinguished during the Second World War because there was not enough butter for the needs of civilians and the military. (13) Then the dairy industry has lost support, and simply had to be reconciled with those that share the market, and turned To supply the army.

Oil from flax and fish oil, which are usually able to find in stores and have been part of the normal diet of the population before the onset of diabetes disappeared from shelves in stores. The company Archer Daniels Midland was the last producer of linseed oil, with its production ceased in 1950. year.

Sometime later, one of the fats that remain and that they were truly healthy, it was subjected to a massive media disinformation campaign and displayed as a saturated fat that caused heart disease. As a result, she literally had to disappear from store shelves. So the coconut oil was removed from the diet and replaced by soybean oil, cotton seed oil and rapeseed (14). Our parents and grandparents would never replace what is beautiful and healthy coconut oil for this cheap waste material used today. Shortly after this successful media war, the American people have lost the war for oil. Over many years, coconut oil has been our most effective means of food for weight control.

The history of this meticulously compromising purity of our food is completely parallel with the increasing epidemic of diabetes and hyperinsulinemia that is now widely represented not only in America but also worldwide.

The second step in treating this disease is a cessation of belief in the lie that our food products are healthy and nutritious.

Will continue ...
