Diabetes Type 2 is Curable!

Letter Nexus Dec 2006

Dear Duncan: I am writing to encourage everyone to read two recent NEXUS articles: the obesity article by David Zeoli (vol. 13, no. 5) and "The Deadly Diabetes Deception" by Thomas Smith (vol. 11, no. 4; also see his website at http://www. Healingmatters .com).

I developed diabetes type 2 about two-and-a-half years ago. I was in a mess. I saw my GP and then a specialist, who diagnosed me as a chronic diabetic. I was put on two types of prescription medication.

I was constantly told by our leading diabetes institution that diabetes type 2 is incurable. This is not the case. After putting the facts together and understanding the problem, you can actually do something about diabetes type 2. I did, and I want to let others know.

Diabetes type 2 isn't a problem of dealing with sugars, but a problem of dealing with fats and oils. Back in 1920, only two per 100,000 had this disease. Now there are 16,000 per 100,000, and this may be a conservative figure. Back in the 1920s there were plenty of sugary sweets around, but the oils and fats weren't engineered. You cooked with lard, butter or dripping.

Instead of submitting to taking these drugs to keep this disease under control for the rest of my life, I read the "Diabetes Deception" article in NEXUS and put it into motion.

I asked my endocrinologist if anyone had cured themselves of diabetes type 2. He said "only once", because that person had gone off their unrelated medication and their diabetes disappeared. I said I wanted to be the first one to cure it intentionally. He said I had to pass the blood glucose tolerance test and had to have blood sugar levels of less than six for the last three months.

Within eight months, I passed both tests. The endocrinologist asked how I did it. I told him of Thomas Smith's research and how nearly anyone can do what I had just done. He wasn't interested.

I approached Diabetes Australia about my success, and in the meantime got an article published in Better Homes and Gardens' Diabetic Living magazine. Of the 40 or so replies I received, six went on the diet I proposed. Those six were thrilled with their results.

I find it hard to get the truth out there, that diabetes type 2 is curable in about 80 per cent of cases. Diabetes Australia didn't want to publish my article. They believe that diabetes type 2 is not curable. They believe that once you have it under control, that's as good as it gets.

I wrote to our Federal Health Minister, telling him about being able to arrest the diabetes type 2 pandemic we now have in Australia. I received an email saying how pleasing it was that I had the disease "under control", and how much money they were spending on it.

In the USA, Thomas Smith has found the same problems in getting the word out about successful treatments for diabetes type 2.
