• No Anti-Diabetes Drug Addresses Primary Cause Of The Disease

    Posted September 11, 2012: by Bill Sardi

    Adult-onset diabetes is treated by a variety of drugs: an old standby, chlorpropamide (Diabinese), stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin.  Newer drugs that perform the same function as Diabinese are exenatide (Byetta), glipizide (Glucotrol and Glucotrol XL), glyburide (Micronase, Glynase, and Diabeta), glimepiride (Amaryl), repaglinide (Prandin) and nateglinide (Starlix), but may not work any better than chlorpropamide.
 Then there are drugs that inhibit insulin resistance, such as Rosiglitazone (Avandia), pioglitazone (ACTOS), and metformin (Glucophage).  Other anti-diabetic drugs like Acarbose (Precose) and meglitol (Glyset) help the body to lower blood sugar levels by blocking the breakdown of starches in the intestine.  You would get the impression that diabetes is a drug deficiency rather than a diet-related/age-related disease.

    Exactly what causes blood sugar levels to rise in middle-age?  Researchers have known that answer to that question since 1994 – the accumulation of iron in the body.  And it has been demonstrated numerous times that depletion of iron stores, as measured by the amount of an iron storage protein called ferritin, will produce long-term resolution of diabetes.  Repeated blood donation can also accomplish this (a unit of blood contains about 250 milligrams of iron).  Blood-letting combined with a natural iron chelator (key-lay-tor) like IP6 rice bran extract may eliminate the need to take drugs altogether.    View the entire text of the recent report here.

  • The Man Who Shouldn’t Be Alive

    Posted February 6, 2010: by Bill Sardi

    Louis Campos of Ventura, California, approaching his 64th birthday this month, is a man who frankly should not be alive.

    For a man who has experienced four separate heart attacks over a period of 7 years, and came within minutes of dying due to severe dehydration from acute diabetes, which required emergent infusion of 13 liters of intravenous fluid, and had a pancreas that ceased to function resulting in his total dependence upon insulin, as well as the development of small hemorrhages in the back of his eyes, Lou is a walking miracle.

    Today Louis takes no medications — no insulin or blood pressure pills, not even a baby aspirin. His most recent electrocardiogram shows no evidence of prior heart attacks, and even two recommended knee operations were cancelled.  There has been low loss of vision.
