Chronic diseases such as diabetes are becoming more prevalent. Diabetes diagnoses are increasing at a steady rate of 5% annually in the U.S., and there is no sign of either a cure or a preventative from the medical establishment. The total cost of treating diabetes was approximately $245,000,000,000.00 ($245 billion) in the United States alone for the year 2012, according to the American Diabetes Association. Until very recently, type 2 diabetes did not occur in children, so it was formerly known as "adult onset" diabetes. Now, type 2 diabetes occurs in children as young as two years old. Meanwhile, the medical establishment refuses to acknowledge that diseases could be caused by artificial foods that are manufactured by the chemical industry, its own drugs, and by overall toxicity. Therefore, the victims will continue to get younger.

The average American consumes 100 to 160 pounds of toxic, inflammatory, chlorine bleached, chemically-refined sugars every year, and this is one of the primary reasons for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Additionally, a large percentage of American foods are artificial. The chemical industry has entered the kitchen, and every processed food now contains a variety of chemical compounds. Just like prescription pharmaceuticals, these foods have serious side effects, and they include all of the modern epidemics. The Big 3 chronic diseases were once rare, but they are now a routine part of modern life; thanks to the capitulation of governments, the food industry, the chemical industry, and now, the nuclear industry.

The massive amount of refined sugars that we eat each year destructively inflames the pancreas, kidneys, and liver. When these organs finally become dysfunctional from such abuse, people develop a condition known as carbohydrate intolerance. Carbohydrate intolerance is a condition in which a body can no longer properly metabolize carbohydrates and sugars. Most Americans somewhat already have this pre-diabetes condition, and this is why the carbohydrate-free diets seem to work so well, for a human body places compounds that it cannot process into fat storage to shield itself. This explains both the effectiveness of carbohydrate-free diets, and why diabetics tend to have such terrible weight management problems. The dramatic loss of weight that some diabetics experience stems from a completely different cause that is related to kidney stress. Carbohydrate intolerance is a precursor to diabetes, but most people remain undiagnosed until full-blown diabetes begins disrupting their lives.

The Top 15 Symptoms of Diabetes

  • Frequent or excessive urination
  • Unusual thirst
  • Extreme hunger (usually type 1)
  • Unusual weight loss (usually type 1)
  • Unexplained weight gain (type 2)
  • Extreme fatigue and irritability
  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts and bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling and numbness in the hands or feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
  • Swollen, tender or bleeding gums
  • Intense cravings for sweets
  • Impotency
  • Kidney pain

Manufacturing Diabetics

The medical industry is known for producing full-blown diabetics out of pre-diabetics by prescribing synthetic insulin. Synthetic insulin poisons the pancreas, which eventually stops producing its own insulin. The pharmaceutical itself creates diabetics, who will conveniently be dependent upon the system thereafter. This is by design. The F.D.A. now refuses to provide approval for natural animal insulins, which are cheap, unpatentable, non-addictive, and do not cause full-blown diabetes to develop.

The best natural insulin available in previous times was a mixture of beef and pork insulins. Less of the natural insulin was needed to achieve optimal blood sugar. It was absorbed slower, which led to greater stability in blood sugar levels. Its U.S. production halted in 1998, when Eli Lilly suddenly stopped producing it; without providing an explanation. The company was ready with its patented "insulin" that could be produced in its chemical factory for much less cost, and yet it is sold at a much higher price. The F.D.A. soon after declared that there were no longer any approved animal insulins, and it officially banned them from entering into the United States, unless a doctor officially petitions the F.D.A. in writing for permission, and then only on the basis of the animal insulin being "essential for treatment". Of course, doctors who wish to keep practicing medicine in the U.S. do not write such letters; so the F.D.A. had politically maneuvered to ban the animal insulin without officially banning it. Due to the patent of the only legal synthetic insulin, and the corroboration of F.D.A. cronies, Eli Lilly has been exclusively given a lucrative medical monopoly in diabetes treatments. There were no scientific reasons for it, for the natural insulin was safer, more effective, and cheaper. It was about money, power, destroying natural alternatives, and ensuring addiction. To maintain a facade that the diabetes market is open and full of competition, the F.D.A. allows Eli Lilly to market its insulin under a variety of different names, in order to convince the American public that it has multiple products to choose from.

Type 2 Diabetes

Insulin is a hormone designed to pull sugar into cells. "Insulin resistance" and "type 2 diabetes" are actually the same condition. It is believed that the aggravated cells of a person who is suffering with type 2 diabetes resist insulin, whereby his body rejects its own natural insulin to cause an excess of blood sugar. A vicious chain reaction begins when the pancreas creates too much insulin to compensate for the low insulin absorption of the cells, which in-turn causes even more cellular inflammation, which then causes the cells to become even more resistant to insulin.

The pancreas will continue to produce excessive insulin, because very little sugar gets into the cells to provide energy. When the amount of insulin becomes excessive enough, it will sometimes completely overrun the cellular resistance, causing unnaturally rapid absorption of sugars into the cells, which then creates hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This stimulates the production of additional hormones, especially from the adrenal glands, as a body will try to right itself with emergency energy reserves. These hormones increase the blood sugar level temporarily, but over time, this process stresses the adrenal glands. When the standard sugar-laden diet is continued, the adrenal glands eventually start malfunctioning, resulting in overall imbalanced hormones. In the most extreme cases, a person experiences adrenal failure, adding yet another diseased state to his already full platter. Regardless of whether full adrenal failure happens, the constant flood of otherwise unnecessary hormones, and the over-driven adrenals can eventually lead to vision loss, kidney failure, and such poor circulation that amputation of the feet or legs may be required.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes occurs when there is a failure of the pancreas, whereby it loses its ability to produce insulin. The body cannot properly utilize sugars as a result. The subsequent excess sugar in the blood can cause damage to the nervous system, leading to a variety of other disease states. The medical system has no explanation for type 1 diabetes, so it rationalizes its ignorance by predictably reporting that diabetes must be genetic, and therefore not preventable. It has also periodically reported that type 1 diabetes may be caused by a mysterious virus, or that it is an autoimmune disease (caused by a malfunctioning immune system). At no point do they ever suggest that the malfunctioning immune system might be due to dietary issues, lifestyle, environmental factors, and above all, they never mention that their own pharmaceuticals often have diabetes listed as a known side effect. They also refuse to acknowledge that this man-made disease was a rare condition throughout most of history. The human race did not suddenly adopt a new type of DNA beginning with the industrial revolution of the twentieth century, when chemical fertilizers, chemically-laced tap water, and pharmaceuticals became the norm. Ignoring these facts, while gratuitously placing the guilt upon genes is the epitome of bad science, so often expressing itself in the politics of promoting biotechnology that is supposedly needed to fix the 'bad genes'. They are actually correct in their statements about diabetes constellating amongst certain families, but so does lifestyle, family doctors, and environmental factors. These things do cause diabetes. The often ignored evidence shows that type 1 diabetes is caused by an onslaught of chemicals, usually at an early age, followed by a poor diet. Some parents will notice diabetic symptoms shortly following vaccinations.

First I would like to say thank you Sarah and Thomas for all of your hard work and information. This site is awesome! I changed my eating habits and life style as soon as I left the Dr. office 7 weeks ago. Blood glucose was 447. All my tests now are well with in the "normal" area. My vision is still a little blurry, but getting better every day. I'm currently taking 500mg Metformin 2x daily. My plan is to get off the meds. So first I should do a parasite cleanse? Yes? Diatomaceous earth? Yes? Question is: Is there any other cleanse I should do before I start the juice fasting? Liver .. or? Next question: On the Tomato Combo Juice is the 1/4 lemon peeled or unpeeled? Thank you so much. I'll post again in about a month to let you know how it's going. I can't wait to get started.

Hey Scott;

It's great that you're making such progress, do be sure and keep us updated. It's always reassuring to hear of cases like yours. Yes, you should do a parasite cleanse. More than 80% of Americans have parasites, and the lifestyle that gives a person diabetes practically guarantees their presence. We do prefer diatomaceous earth, though there's no reason to not also use the other herbs that we list in our parasite cleanse article alongside it.

In regards to the juice fasting, your body will heal naturally whilst you are going through this process, so the liver and parasite cleanse should be plenty. However, it is unwise to cleanse whilst juice fasting, because you will very likely find yourself completely out of energy.

The 1/4 lemon in the Tomato Combo Juice was actually supposed to simply be squeezed in (for the juice).

Your vision problems indicate that your kidneys are stressed, or even possibly damaged. This can be from diabetes, but it can just as likely be from diabetes drugs. All drugs stress the kidneys, so it is important that you come off of the drugs if you are to completely cure yourself and let your body heal.

The following supplements help to strengthen the kidneys:

Dandelion (500mg for every 50 lbs of body weight)
Licorice (500mg for every 50 lbs of body weight)
Taurine (170mg per 50lbs of body weight)
Vitamin E (133 IU per 50lbs of body weight)
Vitamin C (500mg for every 50 lbs of body weight)

Don't exceed these recommendations by much, because in high amounts, these will also stress your kidneys. You should also cut back on less essential supplements while the kidneys appear to be stressed.

If the kidney problems are particularly bad, then you may want to add small amounts of the anti-inflammatories that are listed in this article: Quick Tip: Treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In addition, you should avoid salt in all forms, and if you must use some, use only a small amount of sea salt. Potassium is actually worse than sodium, because potassium thickens the blood, causing further strain on the kidneys. In fact, we need to edit the article to make special exemptions for people who have kidney (renal) strain. It just somehow slipped our minds when we originally wrote the article.

Congratulations for beginning the journey of taking back ownership of your body and your health.

Thank you Sarah. I'll be starting at the end of this week, as soon as I aquire the rest of the things I need. When I'm done I will let you know how it's going. Do you have any information on Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? Or point me in the right direction. Thanks again.

Regarding C.O.P.D.:

Would you call us crazy if we told you to start smoking something?

Read about smoking Indian tobacco ( to clean your lungs, and read our asthma ( advice.

You can dramatically increase your overall cellular oxygen intake by eating alkalizing foods (
), supplementing with chlorophyll (
), consuming some cold-pressed organic coconut oil daily, and following the Budwig Protocol (

Low oxygen intake means that you are sitting on a cancer and heart-attack time bomb. All the methods mentioned in 'The Cancer Report' documentary should help you too. It's no coincidence that the groups of people who are the most likely to have diabetes, are the very same groups of people who are most likely to have heart conditions, and cancers. All of these 'Big Three' disease states are related to oxygen intake and how efficiently the body utilizes blood sugars. It's a big part of the reason why pharmaceuticals tend to CAUSE these conditions over a period of years.

Above all, avoid everything artificial. Whether these be man-made fats or artificial sugars.

Thank you for this beautiful article. :-)
I was wondering if it might be beneficial to cover a few toxins that help start the snowball running on type 1 diabetes..?
Mine started at age 15 after 1 year of life behind a computer screen (chronic low vit D3 levels), a bad breakup (someone please play Gaga's 'Bad Romance'? ) and (gasp) my first Amalgam filling.

I had a fever and a painful swelling across the lower ribs/diaphragm area 3 weeks after the filling, and was sent home by the doc with a 'Dunno what it is, rest and take water' message. Everything after that was a downhill, classic onset of type 1 diabetes with excessive hunger, thirst and weightloss after that, until I was put on insulin (about 8 months after the filling).

Eleven months after the filling, I ended up in the closed ward of the hospital for intense treatment with sedatives and antidepressants, and I've been on and off those, given that the insomnias have repeated themselves every year or two since then.

Given, yes, the inorganic metals in fillings deplete glutathione in the body and create a chronic Se, Mg, Mn, Zn, I (organic minerals involved in producing glutathione) and vitamin deficiency issues... At least from my point of view I see unfriendly fillings/other sources of metal toxins as an important detail.

I'm in the latter leg of a dental cleanup, and am trying to evaluate whether to eliminate my last root canal or not. I'm not a fan of the sensations I'm getting from that area since going all-out organic.

Your notes on vital supplements were of interest! What are your takes on digestive enzymes?

I'd like to note that the supplements you name, B 3, B 6, B12, Taurine and Magnesium, have been implemental in fighting off the insomnia for myself this year. I'm delighted. Not glad about the hyperactive side-effects of using them, of course, but it is a BIG help! I have chosen Magnesium Taurate, after having had wild emotional issues with Mg -oxide, -hydroxide, and -citrate. I'd like to note for later readers that it's best to go for the more expensive product, and use it sparingly until you know what your body requires.

Been quite hypothyroid since the first root canal... And of course, feel at my best when liquid fasting. :-)

One day at a time!
