Beat Diabetes the Natural Way

Did you know you can Reverse and Prevent Diabetes – The Natural Way?

There is no simply doubt that lifestyle and diet is a major contributing cause to diabetes?

Here is an unpleasant statistic:-  USA –  over 20.8 million people (approximately 7.85% of the population) suffer from diabetes.

However in India a country of more than 1 billion people very few people suffer from diabetes.

As a further startling example:-

History has shown that islanders leading traditional lifestyles did not suffer from diabetes. U.S. Navy did a health survey in the Pacific just after World War II, and found no cases of diabetes among Pacific Islanders – zero.  Now,
Pacific Islanders have one of the highest rates of diabetes in the world. So what happened?

Before World War II, Pacific Islanders lived traditional lifestyles, with diets high in fish, fruits and vegetables, with lots of physical activity from fishing, farming, and simply walking. Many Pacific Islander communities underwent radical, rapid changes in diet and physical activity after the war. Fried food, imported high fat canned meats, processed food snacks, and sweetened drinks became a way of life and replaced healthier natural choices.

This points to the fact that our diet and lifestyle have a direct influence on the onset of diabetes. It also points to the fact that our diet and lifestyle habits have a direct influence on the reversal of diabetes.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said about food thousands of years ago: ‘Let Food Be Thy Medicine, and Medicine Be Thy Food’

So what type of diet and lifestyle would reverse diabetes?

The teachers in ‘Food Matters’ raise the question of using alternative approaches to the treatment of diabetes over conventional therapies, because of their often harmful side effects and failure to address the underlying cause of the disease.  They recommend natural, simple, inexpensive therapies to restore your health.

“My personal experience with diabetes and review of the literature made it VERY clear to me that virtually every case of type 2 diabetes is 100 percent reversible.”

– Dr. Mercola, Specialist in Nutritional and Alternative Medicine

Does your doctor recommend alternative therapies?

The truth is your doctor most likely has received little if any training in nutrition and alternative therapies as part of his or her qualification. In the US less than 6% of graduated physicians have studied Nutrition as part of their curriculum.

From a business perspective, it may not be in their best interest to tell you. Prescribing drugs and performing surgery is the livelihood of their profession. Doctors depend on patients unquestioningly acceptance of traditional medical treatments which keep patients returning as a customer over and over again.

Oriyen Cranberry Chewable Tablets

A convenient cranberry product.

Oriyen Cranberry Chewable Tablets contain NutriCran®, a concentrated juice extract from the famous North American cranberries supplied by Decas, a renowned producer with over 70 years experience in growing and processing cranberries. The company employs a state-of-the-art chemical solvent-free extraction process that preserves 100% of the cranberry’s natural nutrients without adding any preservatives, additives or artificial colouring.

Harvesting Cranberries
Harvesting Cranberries

Researchers (including ones from Rutgers University in New Jersey and the University of Michigan ) have shown that cranberry offers protection against certain antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections (UTIs). Cranberry prevents UTI-causing bacteria from adhering to urinary tract walls so they can be flushed out with the urine stream before doing any damage.

Researchers have found that drinking three glasses of cranberry juice a day significantly raises the level of ‘good cholesterol’ in the blood and increase plasma antioxidant levels, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.

With a potent formula consisting of no less than 35% organic acids, 9% quinic acid, anthocyanin, procyanidin and other nutrients, 2 chewable tablets are equivalent to the goodness of 100 grams of fresh cranberries.

Because cranberries can prevent bacteria from adhering to teeth, taking these tablets can promote good dental health and minimise dental plaque and dental caries (tooth decay). They literally cleanse your mouth as you chew!

The antioxidant power of cranberries enhances general health so your skin stays healthy and younger looking.Cranberries - ORAC Score

No Added Sugar!

Chewable tablets are tastier and healthier than ordinary cranberry drinks that are bitter-sour and/or high in calories.

Suitable for those who want to avoid high-sugar drinks or supplements. Great for everyone, including the elderly and children who are prone to urinary tract infections.

Cranberries

Directions for Use:

As dietary supplement: 2 tablets daily
For health enhancement: 4 tablets daily


Maqui Berry In The News

Excerpt from recent news release by Maqui SuperberryTM Liquid Supplement manufacturer, Novelle International. (Annie Eng, founder of Novelle International, Inc.)

“Maqui Superberry is a quality product has clearly differentiated itself from the confusing pack of Goji, Pomegranate, Acai and Mangosteen products.”

“Novelle has research demonstrating that the Maqui berry is the new leader among the anti-oxidant super fruits. Its Maqui Superberry Liquid supplement delivers a full month’s supply in a 16 ounce bottle! One ounce has over a 4000 ORAC value as certified by Brunswick Laboratories. So one tablespoon per day provides 2000 in ORAC value. “Many people are diluting these products causing people to consume more supplement than recommended and a variety of side effects. Your average diet provides about 1500 in ORAC, so with one tablespoon of Maqui you enjoy 3500 slightly over the recommended daily allowance of 3000 in ORAC,” explained Eng.”

Hoax John Hopkins Email – Cancer Update from John Hopkins

Below is the text of an email being circulated.

You will note it is attributed to Johns Hopkins, a world famous and highly respected medical research school based in the United States. However, none of the claims in the message were published or in any way endorsed by Johns Hopkins. In fact, Johns Hopkins has released a statement denying any involvement.

It really is a shame they cannot address the email and give us their point of view, rather than just denying any involvement.  Surely it’s a good thing to give the public sensible anti cancer information.

Of course I’d like that information to be correct and be useful in our daily existence.   To ensure you’re getting correct, up to date information I recommend you read Dr David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anti Cancer – A new way of life” which directly addresses a lot of the points. Find out more about the book HERE.

Want instant access to more information? Read more on anti cancer to find out about fighting cancer with natural methods.

The text of the hoax email follows:-

“AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

1.   Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2.    Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3.   When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4.  When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5.  To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6.   Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7.   Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8.  Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9.    When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a.     Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added> to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b.     Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.
c.      Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d.     A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.  About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e.     Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.  Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic build-up.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

‘Food Matters’ – The film – why was it created?

The film ‘Food Matters’ delivers a clear, concise, hard-hitting fast paced look at our current state of health, health care and the quality and nutritional content of our food.

The unbiased film, independently funded from start to finish, was created by two nutritionists, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, who became Producer Directors of the film created in the style of ‘The Secret’.

Discouraged by the terrible side effects that pharmaceutical drugs were having on their families’ health, they set out on a path to discover what other alternatives might exist. After studying Nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, they realized that the health challenges within their own families were in fact a very real representation of what is happening the world over.

James and Laurentine, in their personal quest, saw a need and found their mission was to uncover the truth about our food and invasive medical-based systems and focus attention on natural therapies and nutrition-based healing.

With nutritionally-depleted foods, chemical additives and our tendency to rely upon pharmaceutical drugs to treat what’s wrong with our malnourished bodies, it’s no wonder that modern society is getting sicker. Providing a host of toxic medical therapies to an already toxic population who eat nutrient sparse foods is not the answer. Food Matters sets about uncovering the trillion dollar worldwide ‘Sickness Industry’ and gives people some scientifically verifiable solutions for curing disease naturally.

Based on the premise of Hippocrates, the founding father of modern medicine, “Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.”, the film challenges our belief systems and helps us analyze the information given to us by the modern medical establishments. As the teachers reveal, the solution to our problems is not necessarily costly medical intervention and disclose many alternative therapies that can be more effective, more economical, less harmful and less invasive.

The culmination is a film of the teachings of leading authorities in Nutrition and Natural Healing from around the world. Featuring:

· Andrew Saul PhD, Therapeutic Nutrition Specialist and Author, Rochester, New York

· Charlotte Gerson, Founder of the Gerson Institute, San Diego, California

· Dr Dan Rogers M.D., N.D., Curing the “incurable”, San Diego, California

· David Wolfe, World Authority on Raw Foods & Superfoods, San Diego, California

· Prof. Ian Brighthope, M.D., M.B.B.S., D.Ag.Sci, FACNEM, FACHM, Melbourne, Australia

· Jerome Burne, Medical Health Journalist, London, UK

· Phillip Day, Investigative Journalist, Kent, UK

· Victor Zeines, Holistic Dentist & Nutritionist D.D.S., M.S, FAGD, Manhattan, New York

The truth that improper nutrition is harmful is revealed by the world leaders in nutrition and natural healing, more importantly they also disclose that the right kind of foods, supplements and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses, including potentially fatal cancers.

‘Food Matters’ seeks to uncover the business of disease, and at the same time, explore the safe, cheap and effective use of nutrition and supplementation for preventing and often reversing the underlying causative aspects of the illness. Find out what works, what doesn’t and what’s killing people. Becoming informed about the choices available could save lives.

Moreover, ‘Food Matters’ allows easy access to solid information to help people make better choices for their health by using an on-line “pay-per-view” distribution system or via DVD mailed anywhere in the world. Get your own copy by visiting Food Matters

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I heard that liquid vinegar is very effective. Why should I choose vinegar in a tablet form?
Vinegar tablets are actually more concentrated and more effective than liquid vinegar. Highly concentrated vinegar extract would be too sour for consumption in liquid form. In order to give you multiple benefits, different types of concentrated vinegars are blended into each tablet. Liquid vinegar usually only contains one or two types. Finally, tablets are obviously more convenient; you can take them any time, anywhere.

2. Can I chew the vinegar tablet?
No. It is much better to swallow the tablet with water. The best way to take a vinegar tablet is to take a sip of water leaving a bit of water in your mouth, then place the tablet into your mouth and swallow immediately. Drink more water if required.

3. Can I take vinegar tablets with other beverages (such as fruit juice) instead of warm water?
Yes. However, we do not recommend that you take vinegar tablets with dairy-based or high protein beverages.

4. Can I take vinegar tablets with hot water?
Yes, the temperature will not affect the vinegar, but it’s important to make sure that you do not use water that could scald your mouth.

5. I’m healthy and not suffering from any aches and pains, is there a need for me to take vinegar tablets?
Vinegar tablets can help anyone to maintain health. They are especially great for people who have stressful lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits because vinegar tablets help to counteract acidity in the body.

6. Can I take vinegar tablets while I’m on other health supplements?
Certainly. Vinegar tablets will not reduce the efficacy of other supplements. In fact, they help the body to absorb nutrients such as Vitamin B Complex, Calcium and Iron better. Vinegar tablets also offer many other health benefits. However, we do not recommend taking vinegar tablets along with probiotics supplements.

7. My body is weak, and I was advised to avoid sour foods. Since vinegar is very sour, will taking vinegar tablets cause any undesirable effects to my body?
No, it will not. On the contrary, it benefits your body as it increases absorption of other nutrients.

Nutrition Intelligence – Be Kind To Your Colon – Part 9

We take it for granted. We ignore it’s needs. We take antibiotics which wreak havoc with it’s flora. What am I taking about? Your colon, and it’s trillions of beneficial bacteria.


Our gastrointestinal tract is home to a thriving community of good, and bad bacteria. We couldn’t manage without them (particularly the good ones). Our intestinal flora perform countless health-enhancing tasks, like:-

  • Producing organic acids to maintain the healthy pH in your colon
  • Producing enzymes and B vitamins for digestive health and nutrient absorption.
  • Creating a barrier to unfriendly organisms and crowding out bad bacteria.
  • Protecting us from cancer by:-
    • Having the ability to bind and deactivate cancer causing substances in our food (like pyrolysates and N-nitrosamines which result from cooking meat at high temperatures)
    • Keeping the population of bad bacteria in check. An overgrowth of bad bacteria has a detrimental effect on hormones, causing an oversupply which causes excess hormones to absorbed into the bloodstream. Problems associated with excess hormones include, fibrocystic breast disease, PMS, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, prostate enlargement and breast, ovary, uterus and prostate cancer.

    Your Colon

To avoid these potentially nasty problems we need to be kind to our colons and supplement our diets with friendly bacteria. These are called prebiotics.


Nutrition Intelligence – The Truth About Your Colon (Fiber & You) – Part 8

It’s not something we talk about. Generally we don’t even want to think about what’s going on inside there. Unless we have a problem. Even then we find it embarrassing.

Recognizing your colon as a major organ which affects the way you feel every day is a step towards improving your life.

Your Colon

The old saying is “death begins in the colon” is literally true. However, I recommend you turn this into a more positive “health begins in the colon”.

Our colon’s function is to act as your body’s sewage system. Effectively eliminating dangerous toxins. Problems occur when this process becomes inefficient, then retained waste leads to re-absorption of toxins into your bloodstream.

Are laxatives the answer? Absolutely not. These may seem like an easy fix. They are not. You can become dependent on them, and over time your colon’s normal ability to naturally eliminate waste will be permanently destroyed. Laxatives should be considered only a very temporary solution to a specific problem.

What your body needs is fiber (or fibre depending on where on the plant you live). Fiber is a safe and natural way of enhancing your body’s ability to rid itself of wastes and toxins.

Fiber acts as:-

  • A Bulking agent – fiber absorbs water in your digestive tract, bulking out the waste matter and allowing it to pass through more easily. This reduces the transit time, therefore reducing your exposure to toxins in the waste. Think of a sponge soaking up the toxins. Studies have confirmed a link between having enough fiber in your diet and a lower risk of colorectal cancer.
  • A Cleansing agent – fiber helps to cleanse the colon by gently sweeping the colon clean of compacted, putrefying, waste materials and helping to eliminate excess cholesterol and dietary toxins. Think of a brush physically cleaning your colon.
  • Fiber also helps normalize blood sugar levels.

The aim of the game is cleansing, detoxifying and improving transit time.

The issue with our modern diet is that it is severely low on fiber. Processed food, refined carbohydrates like bread, biscuits, pastas, soft drinks and polished rice are almost devoid of fiber and nutrients.

As a consequence we suffer conditions like:-

  • constipation
  • hemorrhoids
  • varicose veins
  • headaches
  • digestive problems
  • fatigue/chronic tiredness
  • aches and pains
  • insulin resistance, and eventually diabetes
  • increased risk of cancer

Where can you get high quality fiber? Eat a diet which includes high fiber fresh fruits and vegetables. Supplement your diet with high fiber.

Do You Consider Yourself To Be Healthy – Part 4

In Part 3 I listed the spectrum of nutrient groups we need to achieve optimal health. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s kinda daunting!

Imagine the careful selection of food ingredients to get a balanced diet. The problem is that we would need to consume a whole lot of very nutritious food. Put simply, it’s difficult!

OK go for supplementation! That’s easier to achieve, but how expensive is it to take all the nutritional supplements you need? I know you probably have your favorite supplement. I do too. I consume spirulina, chlorella and stabilized rice bran on a very regular basis.

The secret to easily achieving a regular intake of all the nutrients you need is to combine everything we need in one product.

Simple really. So what is this revolutionary supplement?
