Diabetes Type I

  Type I diabetes is believed to be caused by the damage or destruction of the pancreatic beta cells by an autoimmune reaction. In this, reaction the bodies own immune system destroys it's own beta cells. This mistaken bodily response is precipitated by the presence, in the bloodstream, of antigens that the body perceives as a threat and which are camouflaged to look like beta cells. This camouflage consists of a coat of proteins on the antigen identical to the coat on the beta cells. So, when the body mobilizes to attack the foreign invaders, it's antibodies are programmed to identify them by this coat. When these antibodies later encounter a beta cell, it regards it as an antigen and destroys it.

  Because of the way that this disease works, it is not  only important to restore pancreatic beta cells, but to also deal with any antibody-antigen complexes that may still be around. This is to prevent any repeat of the antibody-antigen conflict  that precipitated the disease in the first place.

  Several causative agents, as antigens, have been implicated in this damage. Some of the prominent ones are various virus' such as mumps, measles and coxcackie virus. A protein commonly found in cows milk, as the result of numerous studies, has been shown to be causative for type I diabetes. More recently, childhood vaccinations have been seriously  implicated as a causative agent in type I diabetes.

 Both the Internet and many university libraries have extensive documentation on these causal phenomena. Sadly, much of this information is not available any longer to a public that has lost interest in researching things for themselves and of thinking independently. As a consequence, a disease that should be a very minor epidemiological footnote in history, continues to survive as a major profit center for the diabetes industry.

 Dealing with any form of diabetes involves, as we have pointed out previously, three different things that need to be done. They are:

                            1.   Reverse the disease.
                            2.   Manually  control blood sugar during this process.
                            3.   Repair collateral damage to kidney's,eyes, arteries, etc.
    My program, outlined on this site and thoroughly discussed in  my book, Insulin: Our Silent Killer,
provides information to accomplish all three goals for the type II diabetic. This information was painstakenly gleaned from research literature spanning almost a century. For the type I diabetic, my program can accomplish the second and third items on the list but not the first one. My type II diabetes program, if applied to the type I, will result in better glycemic control, fewer of the wild glucose and  insulin swings that characterize the use of injectable insulin and, usually, the use of lesser amounts of insulin; but, it will not reverse this disease.

    In  this article I summarize what I have discovered about this disease
   My comment, in my article Our Deadly Diabetes Deception, that there is "now available a cure" for some type I diabetes was based upon the work done in India and around the world and regularly published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology starting in 1990 and continuing since. In this work, regeneration of the pancreatic beta cells was clearly demonstrated in both humans and lab rats by significant reductions in the need for injectable insulin and by better glycemic control. A large number of herbs have been investigated in these studies. Many of them  have been shown to have significant hypoglycemic effects and a number of them appear to improve pancreatic function by restoring and regenerating pancreatic beta cells.

    The published results of this work can be studied in the local university library in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology by anyone with sufficient interest to do so;  just remember to bring a good medical dictionary to help with the big words.

    A search of the Pub med and Medline websites with key words such as herbs, blood sugar, hypoglycemic, type I beta cell regeneration, etc...will quickly turn  up the abstracts of a number of papers relevant to the herbal regeneration of pancreatic beta cells. In the US these papers can then be obtained through the loansom doc program through the local university library. The website is:


    A patent search will disclose a number of patents filed as a direct result of this herbal research that make some strong claims about the regeneration of pancreatic beta cells.  For example, patent number: 5,886,029 entitled "Method and composition for treatment of diabetes" makes this  claim. This particular patent states in part:

                    "The unique combination of components in the medicinal composition
                    leads to a regeneration of the pancreas cells  which then start producing
                    insulin on their own. Since the composition restores normal pancreatic
                    function, treatment can be discontinued after between four and twelve

    This  patent, along with many other similar ones, can be freely researched in their full text version at the US government patent office website:    http://www.uspto.gov/

    Sadly, this excellent work has not matured into a medicine,  available at the retail consumer level, that will reverse type I diabetes. I strongly suspect that the reason is because there is no financial incentive to market a cure for a disease that provides such a lucrative and dependable income from the insulin side of its business.

    Also, this just in, March 2005.  Dr Denise Faustman, together with a foundation supported and funded by Lee Iacocca, whose wife died from the complications of diabetes, has just announced a major break through in dealing with type I diabetes. You can find details at:


    Since the medical community reorganization in 1949, the cure word has been banished from everywhere except fund raising efforts. If you doubt this statement, mention the cure word to your doctor and see how quickly he reacts. It is now politically correct to treat but not to cure disease; any disease. I encountered this same irrational mindset when I contracted a severe case of type II diabetes some years ago. Had I accepted my doctor’s prognosis as inevitable, I would have died from the disease long before now. As it is, by the exercise of my own faculties and contrary to my doctors advice, I completely reversed my own type II diabetes and, at age 75, am in perfect  health.

    What's needed is for someone, unconnected to the diabetes industry and not driven by the profit motive, to perform a thorough literature search on the science and herbal treatment of type I diabetes; and, to then take the information public as I did with the type II diabetes issue. There is a strong probability that herbal remedies could be discovered in  this  way that are capable of fully restoring  pancreatic beta cell function and thus curing type I diabetes.

    To expect the diabetes industry, or any part of it, to financially self destruct by actually eradicating the disease that provides their sole source of income just doesn’t make any business sense at all; they will obviously never do this. If an effective cure is discovered, and I believe it already has been discovered and concealed, it will remain suppressed by the diabetes industry as a matter of business necessity.

    I hope that this information proves helpful in tracking down the information needed to cure this  burdensome disease.
