Safe for a Diabetic?

Posted by Ava on 12/26/2006

I was reading about the oil pulling. I am a diabetic. I take 4 shots a day. I am on high blood pressure medicine, chlosteral medicine,thyroid medicine, plus 4 pills for blood sugar a day. I was wondering if this is safe for me? I also wear dentures. Is this safe for them? Thank you, Ava

Dear Ava: People who are diabetic have a low tolerance for oily foods, so it is best to avoid fry foods, french fries, as well as obviously sugar. This is especially true if it is taken during the dinner time or evening. It is best left taken only in the morning hours only, under some extreme necessity of course.

Your conditions would be best focused by taking 1 tablespoon of granulated powdered lecithin with every meal of your food. The other thing is to take 1:1 sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate, of about 1/2 teaspoon with 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid with 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day on an empty stomach. The alkaline conditions will lower the blood pressure, stabilize the potassium level, lower the sodium retention, and reduce the flatulence.

If conditions improve, you may have to lower the dosage of hospital meds. However glucophage is often better in the long run then insulin and many who are diabetic will use cinnamon powder mixed into the foods, such as between 1/2 teaspoon up 2 teaspoon to stimulate the body's own production of insulin. However the diabetes that I have seen are a result of eating too much steaks, breads, and sweets as being the main problem In some cases, french fries, and potato chips are the main culprit. Without being too specific, the avoidance of prepared food and fast foods are the main culprits and a switched to the home cooked meals will help. The reason is quite simple: most prepared foods add monosodium glutamate to not just make it taste good, but caused people to have an unusual craving for the food, thus causing diabetes. Often taking b complex a couple days out of a week such as 3-4 days plus 250 mg. of niacinamide will help the conditon of diabetes as the B complex are well known for sugar metabolism, however marketers tend to over promote chromium and vanadium, which is useful too, but we are missing the obvious: old fashion vitamin B complex and lecithin can help too.

In some cases long term heavy metals accumulation do cause the pancreas and other glandular system not to function as it creates free radicals, therefore taking chinese parsley only 4 days out of the week, by the handful, if possible, but always start very small just a 1/4 of a handful would do, will help remove the heavy metals. Taking some zinc acetate or zinc citrate is synergistic with conditions of diabetes by reducing infection since the zinc ions alone, will often kill the microbes responsible for the infections and long healing time, but this is not easily seen inside your body, particular if it involves the glandular problems.

It must be noted that free fatty acids (from fried foods and the like) tends to block the actions of hormones causing you to be taking more than it is needed. A weekly 24 hour fasting, which is done since the biblical times can also help by clearing out the toxins but it must be done in the convenience of the home and drink plenty of water.

Speaking about water, there are so many trace mineral deficiencies out there as well as acid forming food that adding 1/4 teaspoon of natural sea salt to 1 liter of water and consume them like it was water will help. It must be noted that IF your drinking water taste UNUSUALLY salty, your water is contaminated with heavy metals. I found all drinking waters I checked where I lived to be about 70% contaminated, including where I live and it is COMING from the filter water device! Therefore, should it be salty, switch the source of water and the strange taste should go away. In fact this contaminated water may in fact create free radical metals built up in the body which can disturbed many of your vital functions, including the glandular functions, for which it is especially sensitive.
