Because Type 2 Diabetes has been growing exponentially in the American population, there is a lot of information available about the condition if you have just discovered that you or a family member suffer from it. However, much less publicity has been devoted to the fact that someone’s individual triggers for diabetes can be tracked down and treated so well that the person can regain normal health and no longer need medication.
Yes, Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed. This process involves identifying what caused you or your loved one to develop Diabetes and then dealing with that cause to the greater that the person no longer has Diabetes. This approach comes from a fairly new, science-based medical perspective called Functional Medicine, which looks for causes for an individual’s health problem, rather than immediately jumping to prescribe drugs.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Classic symptoms of Diabetes include frequent urination, increased thirst, constant fatigue, unexplained nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, poor or slow healing of wounds, numbness, tingling or burning in hands and feet, and an acetone or “fruity” odor to the breath .
Conventional Diabetes medication does control Diabetes symptoms. But the cost of that approach tends to include side effects, as well as a continuation of the underlying medical issues that brought about the Diabetes symptoms in the first place.
Alternative Treatment – and Cure
Not long ago, I had a middle-aged male patient come see me who had been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. His lab tests indicated three problems: first, deficiencies in magnesium, chromium and zinc; second, free radicals out of control in his system; and third, testosterone that was just 50 percent of a normal level, which compromised the patient’s ability to maintain glucose metabolism.
By remedying the mineral deficiencies, placing the patient on a low glycemic diet and giving him a low dose of testosterone, while carefully monitoring improvements in his diabetes indicators, I was able to wean the patient gradually from his medicine. This patient no longer shows any symptoms of Diabetes.
The lab tests are a vital step in reversing Diabetes, because Functional Medicine practitioners find that patients showing similar symptoms may have quite different root causes for their condition. Only based on the lab tests do they proceed with an individualized treatment plan.
Where to Find Help?
Chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, nutritionists or medical doctors who have been trained in Functional Medicine are expert medical detectives. Instead of automatically prescribing drugs for certain symptoms, they first track down the cause of that individual’s symptoms. They then use natural, evidence-based treatments and lifestyle changes to deal with the cause without drugs.
Anupam Ghose, a physician by training, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in 2017. After the diagnosis of T2DM, he followed a low carbohydrate high fat diet and reversed his T2DM within a year. Now he has one main goal in life and that is to make people understand that the conventional method of treating T2DM is not beneficial. Type 2 diabetes is reversible and the best way to reverse T2DM is through diet and lifestyle modifications. He now decided to help people with type 2 diabetes by offering online coaching to reverse their diabetes.
