Diabetes is a very old disease. It is reported in written records that date back to 1550 BC. However, until the 20th century, diabetes was a fairly rare disease.

The conversion of digested food into fat and its storage in the body is a natural process. Over thousands of years of evolution, the human body became very efficient in converting the digested food into fat and then storing it in cells to use later for energy - when food was scarce. However, in the last 100 years, a new type of the disease, Diabetes type 2, became more common as food became more abundant. Increasing numbers of people begun eating more, exercising less, and becoming overweight. Type 2 diabetes is now widespread in every industrialized country of the world. More than 14 million Americans have type 2 diabetes.

Types of Diabetes

There are two forms of Diabetes - type 1 and type 2. Nine out of 10 people with diabetes, have the type 2.

Type 1 diabetes

This type of the disease is sometimes referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes. It used to be known as juvenile diabetes because most people develop it when they are children or teenagers. In its initial stage, diabetes type 1 is much more serious than type 2. Unlike type 2 diabetes, there is no known way to prevent type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot make enough insulin to help glucose get inside the body's cells. The disease develops because the cells in the pancreas that make insulin are attacked by the human body's own immune defense system - which mistakes the insulin-producing cells for germs and tries to destroy them. Doctors do not know exactly what makes the body's immune system attack healthy tissue; some think a virus may be the cause.

The symptoms of Type 1 diabetes can be severe as most people become very sick, very quickly, and cannot survive for long without the needed insulin. Therefore, people with type 1 diabetes need daily shots of insulin - which helps regulate the level of glucose in their blood - just to stay alive. In addition, the people with type 1 diabetes must follow very strict diet and exercise programs.

Type 2 diabetes

This type of the disease is also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes. In the past it was often referred to as adult-onset diabetes because it usually occurs after age 40.

First Stage of the Disease: Diabetes type 2 begins to develop as the human body gains excess weight. The extra weight causes the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. The pancreas responds by producing more and more insulin, which eventually begins to build up in the blood. The high levels of insulin in the blood-a condition called insulin resistance-may cause problems such as high blood pressure and harmful changes in the levels of different fats (cholesterol) in the blood. Insulin resistance, sometimes referred to as "syndrome X," is the first stage on the path to developing type 2 diabetes.

Second Stage of the Disease: The second step to the development of type 2 diabetes is a condition known as impaired glucose tolerance. Impaired glucose tolerance occurs when the pancreas becomes exhausted and can no longer produce enough insulin to get glucose out of the bloodstream into cells. As a consequence, glucose begins to build up in the blood. If it is not diagnosed and not treated, this gradual rise in glucose often leads, not only to type 2 diabetes, but to high blood pressure and heart disease- in any order and in any combination.

The danger lies in that there is no warning while all these harmful activities are taking place in the body. At these early stages, the afflicted person feels perfectly fine. Therefore, Type 2 diabetes is considered as a silent disease because it works its destruction over many years without causing any noticeable symptoms. More than half of the people who have type 2 diabetes don't even know it.

Fortunately, with proper medical care, and early treatment, Type 2 diabetes can be avoided altogether by detecting and treating the disease early, and by making lifestyle changes in eating less and exercising more.

Alternative Treatment for Diabetes

Patients suffering from diabetes should have their blood glucose levels frequently monitored, and should strictly use needed medications as prescribed, by their personal doctors. In addition, continuous diet and exercise are recommended. It is very easy to find blood glucose meters online, so patients have no excuse when it comes to monitoring their blood sugar.

Alternative treatment will depend on how long a patient had diabetes, what type of diabetes it is (usually type 2), how high the blood glucose levels are, what medications are being taken presently, and the patient's general state of health. Alternative treatments may include:

Phosphatidyl Choline Protocol P.C.

* Lowers blood pressure
* emulsifies and dissolve lipids (fat).

Meyer's Cocktail Protocol

* Mixture of various vitamins and minerals to help booster overall health and provid maximum benefits of important nutrients for health and healing as well as replace necessary nutrients after chelation therapy)

Piracetam Protocol (IV drip of Piracetam sometimes mixed with carnitine and/or glutathione)

* Improves circulation in stroke and cerebral paisley victims, brain and tumor patients)

Glutathione Protocol

* Acts as major antioxidant within each cell

CHELATION IV THERAPY (with nutrients and minerals also added in mixture)

Chelation Protocol EDTA (Ethylene diamine Tetraacetic acid)

* Chelator removes deposits.
* Removes toxic heavy metal deposits of calcium that help form plaque - As plaque decreases, more blood flows to the heart and body.
* Mobilizes calcium and soft tissues where is should be stored and moves it to the bones acts as calcium channel blocker.
* May also reduce blood pressure 10 to 20 points.

Chelation Protocol DMPS (Dimercapto Propane Sulforic Acid)
* Specific Chelator - removes mercury.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

* Improves Circulation and oxygenation of the tissues
