I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April (2016) Challange.
My theme is Low Carb High Fat.
(#LCHF on Twitter)
But, that’s not all - it’s about a journey to better health.
It is about two women.
One at death’s door, the other not far behind.
As you follow this journey you will be surprised by what you read here. I hope it impacts you and causes you to question what mainstream medicine is doing to you, and those you love.
Here we go…
D is for Diabetes - the cure exists.
I wonder how many folks actually sat back and watched yesterday’s video. And went so far as to share it.
What I have learned from being on this epic life-altering journey is how much like ostriches we actually are.
Change is not easily accepted.
Particularly when so many “professionals” argue amongst themselves as to which camp is right - Low Carbs VS High Carbs.
Our journey continues…
From July to October 2015
We implemented Dr. Hallberg’s recommendations and eliminated virtually ALL carbs.
I focused on changing Mom’s eating habits.
I increased her daily exercise/movement.
During this time I decreased Mom’s insulin. She was injecting twice daily with two forms of insulin - Apidra Solostar (short acting - given am/pm) and Lantus (long acting - overnight, also given am/pm)
THOSE VALUES WERE 24/20 UNITS AM (APIDRA/LANTUS)
AND 18/14 UNITS AT NIGHT (APIDRA/LANTUS)
If you’re paying attention you’ll be wondering why Mom was given Lantus in the morning.
Dr. Thompson, her diabetes doctor, DID NOT catch this glitch, which apparently happened when Mom was in rehab, where they played with her meds because she was not stable after her stroke. BUT I CAUGHT IT.
During this time - I got my mom off the following drugs:
Atorvastatin (aka Lipitor) - a powerful cholesterol drug.
NEWS FLASH - we do not need cholesterol meds, our bodies are MADE of cholesterol.
And… statins cause mental deterioration as in Alzheimer's and Dementia because they deprive the brain of cholesterol which it needs to function.
Citalopram Hydrobromide - an antidepressant with a long list of side effect, that could make you depressed just reading them.
and then I got her off
Gabapentin - this is a potent pain relief drug. The potent part is what it does to the rest of the body, the side effect are brutal to say the least.
All these drugs add to the damage diabetes already does, so taking them just creates more liver and kidney damage amongst a whole host of other problems.
As for the insulin - I had reduced her injections to none in the morning and 4/2 UNITS EACH OF APIDRA/LANTUS AT NIGHT.
FINALLY… after 3 months...
I made an appointment to see my mother’s family physician.
He was outwardly shocked at what he saw - here… see for yourself.
|Jan 2015 - Mom with Dieter, hardly able to have a conversation.|
|Nov 2015 - what a difference. 15 lbs. lighter in this photo.|
And, in case you were wondering… Type 2 Diabetes is NOT HEREDITARY.
It is caused by EATING CARBS, particularly wheat.
The CURE FOR DIABETES is to NOT EAT CARBS, particularly wheat.
My mother is living proof of that.
AND, YOU CAN’T ARGUE WITH PROOF.
The ride is far from over… a twist or two still awaits. So remain seated and buckled in for the next instalment.
Question for this post - Do you believe diabetes can be cured by refraining from eating carbs, especially wheat?
