Actually it's great that you mention all of those things. Thanks. I actually have had all of the mercury fillings replaced with composites. I still
have a bridge that has some metal in it, and I cannot be sure exactly which type of metal is in it, and it is impossible for me to have that
The 15 minutes a day on the grass/ground idea is a good one. I have not heard of that, and it is easy enough to do. The soil here is very alkaline, I
have tested it.
I have some 35% hydrogen peroxide in the fridge, and oxygen will not hurt a human in that low of concentrations. I will be trying that.
Organic raw pure honey is what I always use to raise my blood sugar when I get hypoglycemic. I agree. It has enzymes that aid in digestion, and acts
the fastest to bring me out of a low. I have had SEVERE seizures in the past from diabetes. I am lucky to be alive. One of those times my roommate
came home and had to turn me on my side because I was choking on blood, and my face was black (near death). Just a tip for anyone if you ever see
someone in a seizure-listen near their mouth to see if they are breathing. If they are not breathing, turn them on their side, so that the blood will
come out of their throat and allow oxygen in. The reason for the blood is because I bit through my tongue in the seizure. DO NOT stick ANYTHING into
I have organic sulfur crystals that I take about a teaspoon every day. I agree with you, that is a great supplement. It seems to stabilize my blood
sugars somewhat. It's inexpensive as well.
I do take the best quality systemic enzymes that I can find on the market. There are a lot of fakes out there, because they have been taken over by
marketing corporations that use cheap substitutes. Basically, I take a systemic enzyme that has REAL trypsin. It has helped me with some of the nerve
damage from diabetes. If anyone wants to know the specific brand, PM me and I will share it. The reason I won't post it here, is because this guy has
already been asked to be bought out by big-pharma, and he told them to take a hike. I have never heard of protease enzymes, so I will have to look
into that some more.
Lahkovsky machine? I have never heard of that. I will do some research on that.
Plastic is a thing that is very tough to avoid, however I do avoid it as much as possible. I do not eat chesse or grain at all. Let me tell you, it
took some strong willpower to break those habits. It was well worth it.
I live in a city, and it is kind of tough to grow my own food in a rented place. I am going to be trying to move more out in the country down the
road, but let me tell you that it is very expensive and out of my price range at the moment.
Just another tip for everyone. My mom used to take me to a naturopathic doctor who was type 1 himself, and he said that extra virgin coconut oil
replaces a lot of the lubrication functions that diabetics do not have because of lack of C-Peptide. I was just talking to her yesterday, and she
reminded me of that. C-Peptide does a whole lot of things in the body, but she reminded me that the ND who has type 1 himself takes a quarter cup
spread out throughout the day. I just started taking it again yesterday, and it is helping me feel better in a lot of ways already. I do believe that
it is a replacment for the lube functions of C-Peptide in the micro vascular areas that lose circulation in diabetics. I took some yesterday, and it
helped most of my foot pain disappear. I will be taking a quarter-cup every day from now on. That and the magnesium spray have been the greatest
things that have helped me so far.
With reguards to the magesium spray, see my thread: Magnesium: An important thread for
those who have apsorbtion problems with it page: 1
Magnesium and potassium I believe are two of the most important things to diabetics in the
world. That is the only way I found to effecively absorb magesium. Potassium chelate is the form of magnesium I take.
I take a lot of antioxidants. Ubiquinol, and astraxanthan are the two main antioxidants I take. I have not tried liposomal vitamin C (because of the
warning from a type 2 diabetic on the liposomal vitamin c thread here on ATS), but Ester-C seems to work ok for me.
I take a regular dose of balanced b vitamins. I swallow a Coenzyme B complex daily, along with a fast-dissolve B complex and Folate 800 mcg
(microgram) under the tongue each day.
To help control the high blood sugars, I take a Vanadium Chromium supplement, Pro-Beta gymena sylvestre, and an herb from India called Pterocarpus
marsupium from a company called Safe Herbs. The reason for the brand from India is because it is sold on Amazon, and I have tested it myself and it
For a digestive enzyme I take Pancreatin 1400 mg before each meal (when I remember). Pancreatin has been scientifically shown to help us diabetics
break down protiens from meat more easily, therefore putting less stress on the kidneys.
For the iodine supplement, I have JCrows iodine that I take a few times a month. I am not sure how often it is safe to take, but I will surely look
into that some more.
I am lucky enough to be one of the people who has a contiuous glucose monitoring system. I do not have the Medtronic flavor. I tried that one before,
and it almost killed me with inaccuracy. I have a Dexcom sensor, and I trust the accuracy of it 95% of the time. The sensor has made seizures a thing
of the past for me! I have read all of the threads about how bad RF is supposed to be on the human body. I would rather be exposed to a little RF,
than to die in my sleep from a seizure! The one complaint I have about the Dexcom sensor is that the alarm on it is pitifully quiet and will not wake
me from sleep. Dexcom is supposed to be coming out with an Iphone compatible alarm, but the FDA is too slow to approve these things and I personally
think it costs too much and I do not own an Iphone! Instead, I use the Sonic Alert SonicBOOM! alarm clock with the Sonic Alert BC-100 baby cry
monitor. The Sonic Alert setup I mentioned has a blinker relay (like on a car) that activates a BRIGHT light that flashes in my face, and has an
adjustable tone and volume alarm that goes up to 120 decibels! I don't need to set it that high, but I'm sure you get the idea. I only had $150 into
the whole setup for that, and it has saved my life multiple times. The nice thing about the SonicBOOM! alarm clock is that it is completely analog.
Basically, nothing SHOULD ever fail in it.
I am really glad I started this thread. It has helped me remember some of the things my naturopath and mother taught me over the years. I am
especially glad I talked to mom about it, because she reminded me of the extra-virgin coconut oil. That is the single thing that I noticed started
helping me immediately after starting to take it again, along with the magnesium spray.
If you are diabetic, research each of the things I have mentioned here. Always discuss with your physician all of the vitamins, minerals, supplements,
etc. that you are taking. My doctor has said that "You don't need to take any of those things. Everything you need should be in the food that you eat
every day." That is a laughable statement. The food today is so processed, gmo'd, and poisoned and preserved! I try to eat as much as I can that is
organic food. It has gotten VERY expensive recently.
