Dou you know that Over 40% of the US are Pre-Diabetes According to the Discovery Health report from June 2006? Over 20 million of people in South America suffer of diabetes (PAHO).
Diabetes is a devastating disease that has symptoms that can be prevented, controlled or reversed with diet and nutritional supplementation. The elevated blood sugar levels diabetics have ravage the body – effecting neurological, cardiovascular and circulatory health, to name a few. With proper nutrition you may be able to avoid the onset of the disease or possibly reverse it.
At first glance, one might say what’s the big deal about diabetes or pre diabetes? You have an elevated blood sugar and you have to take some medicine, so what. Well, it is a bigger deal than most realize.
Diabetes can be an insidious disorder causing multiple organs in your body to fail. Specifically, diabetes greatly increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. As a practicing neurologist I care for many patients with an acute stroke. And more often than not, that patient is diabetic.
The disease affects much more than these two important organs. It can also cause progressive kidney failure leading to dialysis, blindness from retinopathy and problems with circulation in your extremities. A minor cut or abrasion on the foot in a diabetic can lead to gangrene and amputation of the foot or even leg.
A natural product obtained from the peruvian amazon jungle called Pasuchaca a natural treatment which contains all of the above mentioned nutrients and other nutrients essential for overall health.
Perhaps more important than any other factor, would be that of obesity. A recent and very disturbing study indicated people with pre diabetes or mild elevations of blood sugar, have a dramatic increase in memory loss and shrinking of the brain. Most overweight people will have elevated blood sugars. The ideal blood sugar is probably lower than the current accepted range,less than 80 90 mg per deciliter is probably much safer than 100 120 or more.
The Pasuchaca a natural treatment form the non tradditional medicine that will help you with no side effectsHow Pasuchaca works
The Pasuchaca, have been used for thousand years by the ancient peruvians in the diabetes treatment. It has not yet been determined the mechanism for the action of its components, but it is believed that it increases the total absorption of glucose by the body, or facilitates the absorption of glucose in the muscle tissue, and it inhibits hepatic gluconeogensis (the mechanism that converts compound non-carbohydrates to glucose). It provides glucose to the body when it doesn’t have dietary carbohydrates, and increases in diabetics the reception of insulin to its receivers. Considering that insulin doesn’t exercise effect for the transport of the glucose on certain cells such as tubular epithelium of the kidney, it appears that Pasuchaca impedes the reabsorption of glucose through the tubular epithelium; in this way, larger concentrations of glucose would be eliminated in the urine than those presented under the physiologic conditions of diabeticsMore about diabetes
Genetic factors are likewise extremely important. Although diabetes mellitus is certainly not equivalent to a malignant form of cancer, at times, it can cause similar although slower deterioration in your body, eventually leading to death. Unfortunately, the treatments available in this country do not clearly lower your risk of these potentially threatening complications or reverse the disease.
There are things, however, that you can do that can make a significant difference. First and foremost, one must change his or her diet, especially if a person is obese. It is quite clear from the medical literature that the Atkins’ Diet is the way to go. Reducing your simple carbohydrate intake can dramatically improve the level of glucose in your blood.
Dr. Daryl Ronsfelt, a board certified practicing internist, rheumatologist and immunologist is a member of the NSO Natural Science Organization, told me several weeks ago that he routinely puts all of his diabetic patients on the Atkins’ Diet and has seen phenomenal results. Many of his patients who were on medication now find that their diabetes is diet-controlled. I recommend people focus on the healthy proteins including fish, nuts, eggs, legumes, broccoli (50% protein) versus hamburger, bacon, steaks, and other foods that are high in saturated fats.
There are multiple nutrients that you can consume that can show significant benefit for diabetes mellitus and pre diabetes.
For unclear reasons, diabetics require larger amounts of vitamin E. Studies in the medical literature have demonstrated that consuming anywhere from 500 to 1200 units of vitamin E daily can even potentially reduce the long term complications of diabetes mellitus. It may work by reducing oxidative stress and free-radical production. Vitamin E may also improve insulin action within your body.
The B vitamins are critically important as well. In a recently published study, a derivative of thiamine (B1), was able to block particular molecular pathways which cause damage to the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) behind the eye leading to diabetic retinopathy and blindness. Vitamin B6 has been shown in clinical trials to provide some protection against the onset of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B6 may work its magic by blocking glycosylation of proteins which seems to be the underlying cause of diabetic complications. Vitamin B12 can likewise have some benefit in certain forms of neuropathy, especially B12 deficient neuropathy.
Diabetic patients will also frequently benefit by consuming supplemental amounts of vitamin B3 in the form of niacinamide. There have been at least ten studies looking at niacinamide in either recent onset diabetics or insulin dependent diabetics of less than five years duration. Six of these studies were double-blinded and in three of the studies positive effects were shown in terms of long-term remission with lowering of insulin requirements and improved metabolic control.
Vitamin C is another important vitamin for diabetics. The main function of vitamin C is to help build a particular protein in the body called collagen. It also helps with wound healing.
Diabetics will frequently develop hypertension as well. In a study published in the journal Hypertension December 2002, 30 patients between the ages of 45 to 70 years old with Type II diabetes mellitus, were randomly assigned to receive in a double-blind manner either 500 mg of vitamin C daily or placebo. After only one month, it was found that those patients treated with vitamin C had a statistically significant reduction in systolic blood pressure. It was thought that the reduction in blood pressure may be due to improvement of arterial stiffness in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus.
I suggest taking the Superior Ester-C for your vitamin C; it is non-acidic, retained longer and better absorbed.
Several minerals are likewise extremely important for diabetes mellitus, especially magnesium. Studies have shown that magnesium levels are lowest in patients who have severe retinopathy. Magnesium is essential for normal heart and cell function. All diabetics should supplement their diets with at least 300 to 500 mg a day of magnesium.
There are several herbal supplements and phytonutrients that have been shown in clinical trials to improve blood sugar control. Some of these nutrients include bitter melon (momordica charantia), Glucosol and gymnema sylvestre. Another incredible nutrient for diabetics is alpha lipoic acid. Numerous clinical studies prove the benefits, including nerve benefits for this miracle antioxidant. Most studies have utilized 600 – 1,200 mg per day. We have been getting terrific feedback about this product. Closer to home, my sister-in-law, who suffers with diabetes mellitus, has been on GlucoPower for over a year. Since being on this product, she has required less of her oral diabetic medication. More importantly, she has had an extremely unpleasant peripheral neuropathy requiring two different drugs. Since being on GlucoPower, she is now off of these drugs and is feeling a lot better. I am not sure which nutrient or nutrients has/have been helping in this regard. I am sure using the right levels, forms and combinations of these nutrients are the key to improving a person’s diabetic status.
She also takes NSI Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) which are likewise beneficial for diabetics and anyone wanting to promote cardiovascular and neurological health. If you are one of the 17 million diabetics or one of tens of millions pre diabetics in this country or know of someone who is, I urge you to forward this newsletter to them so they can get started on this program.

Experience amazing results with controlling blood sugar
“I began using Pasuchaca four months ago. My blood sugar has been in the normal range with minimal diabetic medication. I’m a type II diabetic and when my blood sugar is under control, I feel better and have more energy. I’m out walking 4 miles per day. My last AIC test came back from the lab with great numbers (5.5). My doctor was very pleased. I’m so glad I decided to try your product.”
