While geneticists apply vast amounts of time, energy and money to finding the "causes" of disease in our genes, much less attention is placed on research that has already demonstrated the triggers of autoimmunity such as infections, vaccines, pesticide and petroleum exposure (diesel fuel particles) and the consumption of foods like wheat, cow's dairy and soy (unfermented, GMO and/or excessive) are the major contributing factors in the development of type 1 diabetes.
Promoted for decades as a "safe" sugar alternative, presumably to prevent or reduce symptoms of diabetes, Splenda (sucralose) has been found to have diabetes-promoting effects in human subjects.
A promising study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition reveals that the popular kitchen spice ginger may be an effective treatment for the prevention of diabetes and its complications
Billions are spent annually and still there is no conventional cure for diabetes. Or is there a cheap, safe and freely available solution already growing beneath our feet?
With the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs known as statins being widely promoted for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, despite their having over 300 documented adverse health effects (including heart failure!), how does chocolate sound as a viable, heart-friendly alternative?
In 2000, the CDC officially declared measles were eliminated. However, there are still measles outbreaks today. Is there a link to the measles outbreaks to the measles vaccinations, the lack of clean water, proper nutrition and good sanitation?
A groundbreaking new study finds synthetic (GMO) insulin is capable of rapidly producing type 1 diabetes in type 2 diabetics.
Wheat has been known for some time to contribute to the pathogenesis of diabetes, but the mechanism has not been extensively investigated. New research indicates that the gut flora may provide a 'missing link' in understanding how wheat is capable of causing such great harm.
The microbiota of the digestive system plays a fundamental role in the function of the human immune response. Researchers found that the use of antibiotics, long known to disrupt the gut microbiome and increase inflammation in the body, may impact the effectiveness of vaccinations such as the flu vaccine
A new study links wheat and gluten consumption to weight gain and type 1 diabetes, confirming an already extensive body of research already establishing this connection.
Social scientists and data analysts: Why not just ask parents who don’t vaccinate what they believe? Or read the vaccine damage claims?
The excessive consumption of white rice can contribute to overweight, obesity and blood sugar disorders. Exciting research indicates adding coconut oil while cooking it can dramatically and positively alter its nutritional structure and function.
Can you call yourself a feminist If you don't support a woman's right to make healthcare decisions for her child?
The CDC stated a lack of biological plausibility for a 2.4x increased risk of autism in African American boys given the MMR vaccine, but there's plenty. How vaccines affect the infant microbiome is unknown.
It may be shocking to learn that thirty percent of American babies are born via Cesarean delivery (CD). This statistic doesn’t mean that one-third of all pregnant women are having complications that lead them to require an emergency cesarean. Many women are opting to have an elective CD
Cinnamon's medicinal potential is as rich and complex as its flavor and aroma, with blood sugar balancing and infection fighting top on the list.
Studies show that synthetic, genetically modified insulin could be to blame for a number of complications in diabetes patients.
Scurvy is a devastating disease caused by not enough vitamin C in your body. While it’s often associated with pirates and seafarers from long ago, the disease is making a comeback in the modern day, even in developed countries where, theoretically, scurvy should no longer exist
The Affordable Care Act doesn't work for everyone. Here's how to opt out of Obamacare and enroll an alternative solution.
The treatment and in some cases complete reversal of diabetes can be accomplished entirely without drugs.
Could long sought-after support for type 1 diabetes be as close as your kitchen cupboard? An accumulating body of scientific research appears to point in exactly that direction
A growing body of concerning research indicates that conventional medicine's standard of care for type 2 diabetes, including synthetic insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs, may actually increase morbidity and mortality. On the other hand, recently validated traditional approaches relying on plant-based medicines may greatly mitigate the global diabetes epidemic.
What if the long sought after "cure" for diabetes was as safe, affordable, and accessible as a spice sitting in your kitchen cupboard?
Of all the illnesses in industrial society, diabetes takes the greatest toll. Over 100,000 people die from complications of diabetes each year. Another million lose quality of life due to metabolic syndrome. Diabetes adds $135 billion to the annual cost of healthcare in the U.S.1 Yet diabetes remains avoidable, treatable, and reversible.
