Has this idea been posted--that diabetic symptoms are an effort by the body to manage candida?

I was Googling around and came across this article and thought it might be helpful.  I am putting the whole quote because I always like to have as much info. and I didn't want to delete something that might be important to someone.  I hope this helps someone out.  Sorry I can't remember where I found this, I just saved the info.

Diabetes Defeated
The botanical breakthrough that’s leaving doctors flabbergasted

This is the story of how one member of the Health Sciences Institute got off insulin in six weeks…after nine years on prescription drugs! And if only she’d known about this “blood sugar supplement” she could have prevented the whole problem before it ever started!

June was a 56-year-old with diabetes. She had been on insulin and oral prescription medications for nine years when she agreed to test a new natural solution. Within six weeks, she stopped not only her insulin but another prescription drug as well.  You read that right: In just six weeks an alternative doctor solved a problem that mainstream medicine couldn’t handle in nine years and for thousands of dollars. The fact is that it costs the typical diabetic around $10,000 a year for treatment. Conventional medicine soaked this woman for maybe $90,000 to treat a medical problem that plant remedies cured in no time at all!

A standard diabetes test showed June went from severely diabetic to healthy in the course of the treatment. But this diabetes breakthrough almost didn’t happen.  Believe it or not, Jon Barron, the acclaimed researcher who found this remedy, wanted nothing to do with creating a diabetes treatment. He thought it would be a mistake to use herbs and nutrients to manage the symptoms of diabetes rather than addressing the root cause––mainly the way we eat.  What changed Jon’s mind was the galloping diabetes epidemic all around us. Nearly 20 million Americans already have full-blown diabetes, and up to 40 percent of the rest of us are pre-diabetic.  Diabetes is the No. 6 cause of death in the United States, and it’s destined to move up the charts pretty quickly, given the way we eat.

It’s hard to believe, but the average American scarfs down 152 pounds of sugar a year.   It’s easy to do, even if you think you’re being careful. For instance, sodas contain as much as a teaspoon of sugar per ounce. There’s sugar in catsup, salad dressing, “organic” cereals...in practically everything.

The key is to balance your blood sugar now—before you get sick. We take natural supplements for cholesterol and blood pressure. Isn’t it about time for a natural solution to diabetes? Jon Barron decided it was...

Seven herbs tackle diabetes seven different ways

We told you we’d tell you about a two-herb combo that packs a punch against diabetes.  But it’s actually much better than that… Jon Barron combined a full 7 diabetes-fighting  herbs in one amazing supplement!  Barron came at his solution from a wholly unique angle. Instead of just following the mainstream approach, Barron addressed the fact that diabetes was the wrong point of attack. That’s because diabetes is the symptom of a metabolic problem, not the cause. So instead of dealing with that end result, Barron developed a formula to help optimize the body’s ability to metabolize sugar properly. Before formulating his product, Barron analyzed all the studies and competing claims for natural diabetes treatments and sugar-regulating formulas.

Ayurvedic medicine (the ancient tradition of India), for example, offers 44 different natural remedies for diabetes. Other traditions offer dozens more. After much study, Barron narrowed the menu down to six that had the best chance of creating a thorough, root-cause approach to maximizing the body’s ability to metabolize sugar.  Then, on the heels of a new discovery, he added the seventh potent ingredient to come up with the ideal sugar metabolic enhancement formula. You may have heard of the first two  ingredients below from other sources, but you probably can’t name the other five…and that’s where Barron’s unique research expertise comes in.

The first ingredient is fenugreek. In a recent study, researchers saw a 54% drop in urinary glucose levels—the test doctors often use to identify diabetics. But to get the most  benefit, patients had to eat a huge amount of fenugreek––a pretty unpleasant undertaking. The stuff tastes terrible (it’s extremely bitter), and comes with some pretty unpleasant side effects (like foul-smelling sweat and urine) when you eat a lot of it.  Now a new extract concentrates the active ingredient in fenugreek, making much smaller doses possible and getting rid of those smelly side effects. In India they call gymnema sylvestre, a traditional Ayurvedic diabetes remedy, “the sugar destroyer.” Here’s why: A protein in the plant makes you lose your craving for sugar and may actually prevent you from digesting some of the sugar you DO eat.  Plus, gymnema seems to regenerate pancreas cells, allowing your body to produce more insulin. In an 18-month gymnema study, most test subjects were able to reduce their medication… and some were able to get rid of drugs altogether. Best of all, no one has reported any adverse side effects of gymnema.  Not one.

Konjac mannan is a potent herb you’ve probably never heard of, but it’s been proven effective in clinical trials. In fact, in a 65-day trial, 72 patients with adult-onset diabetes who took konjac saw their fasting blood sugar levels drop an average of 51.8 percent and their levels after eating drop 84.6 percent!

The nopal cactus (a.k.a. the prickly pear cactus) is just gaining recognition in the natural medicine world. There’s not a lot of clinical research into its medicinal benefits yet, but several small studies suggest that eating nopal leaves with a meal can help contain —even reduce — serum glucose levels.  Individuals with type 2 diabetes have experienced a 10 to 20 percent reduction in blood sugar levels after eating nopal.

Banaba leaf extract has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes by up to 30%. It also helped the people in the trial keep tighter control over glucose fluctuations. Best of all, banaba appears to encourage weight loss…without any major dietary changes.

Bitter melon contains at least three components that act on blood sugar – and clinical trials confirm its effectiveness for managing glucose levels.

The final ingredient is a patented cinnamon extract called Cinnulin PF™ which ramps up the overall effectiveness of the supplement. In fact, Cinnulin PF actually works to make the insulin receptor sites on your individual body cells more receptive…and that means your body can use its own insulin more efficiently. 

Barron put all these ingredients together into a highly beneficial supplement he called Glucotor™ 

v.2. Here are just some of the astounding results seen in six-week Phase I Clinical Trials conducted using this formula:
*  Blood sugar levels dropped by an average 54.4 points
*  An average 52% improvement in blood sugar utilization and optimization, meaning that participants’ bodies learned to handle sugar more efficiently
*  Improved carbohydrate metabolism (meaning that patients’ metabolic systems handled dietary carbs more effectively) by an average 39%
*  An average weight loss of 5.5 pounds

This sugar metabolic enhancement formula, which can help control diabetes from the right angle, is just one great example of how members benefit from being part of the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) network. Thanks to our inside, confidential sources, we were able to follow the development and testing process and bring this breakthrough to our members as soon as it became available.

To learn more about Glucotor™v.2, go to the Product Source Directory at the end of this report.

A word of caution: If you’re on prescription medications—and even if you aren’t—you need the guidance of a qualified health professional before you try this (or any) remedy.

I was at a health clinic yday and the doc said that 4 out of 10 type 2's are now progressing into being type 1s.

I hope I got those numbers right. Meaning that their diabetes gets so bad their c-peptide test shows that their pancreas either no longer makes insulin or makes so little that they are considered a type 1 diabetic. But they would still have the insulin resistance from the type 2 so they are double diabetics.

That's my case. I met another double diabetic and she too struggles a lot. Im not sure why this is happening so often now but it is. I suspect a part of it might be because in many type 2s there is  literaly a chemical addiction in the body to carbs. And when someone who is insulin resistant dont big time cut the carbs their diabetes gets worse. But that is just my guess not a professional answer.

I know other issues in a type 2 can cause this too like pregnancy and health issues.

Does anyone have suggestions for dehydration associated with diabetes? I am working on taking care of it with diet but this constant thirst/peeing makes me feel like I will never get anywhere. I drink, hold on to your hats, a quart an hour. All day, every day. That can be up to 4 gallons of water. The more I drink the more thirsty I am. I don't restrict salt intake. In fact I will even make salt capsules to take sometimes (using redmond sea salt). I am also taking magnesium and trying to eat potassium rich foods, but most of those are high carb which I am avoiding. My sugars are stable now due to watching what I eat very closely (my sugars are less than 100 most of the time, never over 110) but I need figure out how to stop this water pulling. Suggestions?

Try taking homeopathic cell salt #9.  It is called natrum muriaticum which is actually salt.  Homeopathically, what it does is balance the body's water fluid.  Doesn't matter if the fluid needs to go up or down.  Homepathy works to cause the body to heal itself.  So this cell salt will cause your body to bring itself into balance fluid wise.  I would suggest 4 pellets, 3x's a day.  I usually take mine at meals for ease of remembering.  Lucky Vitamin is the cheapest place to get them, but most HFS that sell homeopathics carry the cell salts.  There will be a big red #9 on the front of it.  Do not touch them.  Pour them into the lid, and then into your mouth directly. 
For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I've committed unto him against that day.

Is this the same as "bio salts" or "bio plasma" by Hylands homeopathy? That is the only brand I can get locally and The Man suggested that yesterday. I may have him pick some up on his way home. I have been drinking orange juice for potassium because that doesn't seem to be affecting my sugars, and taking magnesium and lots of sea salt. Yesterday I only drank about 2 gallons of water and it was wonderful. I am feeling more energetic so maybe it just took a bit for my body to adjust to steady good glucose levels. I ate more carbs then I should have a few days ago and sugars shot up to 170 and I felt AWFUL. It was enough to remind me that feeling better is way better than some empty carbs now and then.

Bioplasma is actually all 12 cell salts together.  They are a bit lower potency but would be just as good for you.  It may take a bit longer for fluid balance given the lower potency but if that's what you can get, take them.  They WILL help.  Whatever you can do to avoid taking insulin while you're pregnant, do it.  When my sugars were 170 I let them convince me that insulin would be "easier" then fighting my diet.  My DD is 12yrs old now and we are just NOW starting to see the lasting effects all that insulin had on her go away.  So do everything you can diet wise.  I have a friend that subsisted on 8 foods that wouldn't spike her blood sugar when she was pregnant.  The cell salts will go a long way in helping though.

I am not preggy (thankfully!) and have no intention of it in the future. And I simply didn't test for it when I was. I am not going on insulin as I simply can't afford to go to the dr let alone the meds. I have known and read of plenty who took care of it entirely with diet and I fully intend to  :D.  I am seeing the numbers balanced just making a few corrections in my diet (was already on pretty healthy diet, low sugar/starch, LOTS of healthy fats etc.)

I have been getting the magnesium and potassium and encapsulated salt and now it has balanced out quite well. I am consuming less than 2 gallons a day (I just plain don't agree with the "you need 8, 8oz glasses of water a day". ) I can go more than an hour with out even feeling thirsty. It is wonderful. Maybe come August I can get the bioplasma...
