How is diabetes cured without drugs?
Can diabetes be healed without medical drugs, without alternative drugs of any kind - instead only using diet and sleep?
Dr. Stanley Bass is specialized in no-drugs natural healing and has 65+ years experience. He combines two no-drugs dietary healing methods:
  • century-old Natural Hygiene (Orthopathy, Science of Health) methods
  • newer research about the insulin mechanism (typically used in low-carb, hunter-gatherer, Atkins, sugar-buster methods).
    Dr. Bass says yes - it is possible to reverse diabetes without drugs or medicines, it has been done many times - and devotes his website (www.drbass.com) to teach about the possibilities of drug-free healing.

    Follow the links below to learn more about true healing on a deeper level - as opposed to superficial symptom removal.

    Why bother to learn about drug-free healing? Here are a couple of reasons:
    Perhaps you don't have health insurance, and are looking for an alternative reliable & low-cost diabetes recovery method?
    Perhaps standard methods (like drugs, surgery) have not been able to reverse your diabetes, that instead has become worse?
    Perhaps you have other diseases except diabetes that you want to heal at the same time?
    Perhaps you are afraid of damage from drugs or surgery? And want a mild, natural method?


    Is there always hope of recovery?
    Tha answer is yes - no matter what specialists and doctors have told you: "The recuperative power of the human body from illness to health can only be described as little short of amazing." "As long as there is still breath in the body and the will to live, there is always hope... there will always be hope"
    The quotes are from this free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS by Dr. Bass - download and read it for examples and inspiration.
    The phrase "it is hopeless" might be translated: "it is hopeless if you depend on drugs"

    How is diabetes cured?
    After reading this article you may start thinking differently about diseases - a paradigm shift for most ...
    Read How Diseases are Cured by Herbert M. Shelton
    "What does the average individual know about keeping well? Almost nothing. ----- The people and their doctors are all in the same boat together with a blind man at the helm."

    Also read Dr. Shelton's analysis of diabetes here (in a list of diseases with analysis and treatments).
    Recovery depends upon the amount of functioning tissue left in the pancreas. Fortunately, the pancreas, like all other organs of the body, possesses a great excess of functioning power ....

    MUST-READ: Read this book: "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution"
    Dr. Bernstein had Type I diabetes, and when no doctor could help him started studying his own insulin mechanism, and found a way to use nutrition and exercise to reverse his diabetes symptoms. Must-read for diabetics, type I or II.
    Visit Dr. Bernstein's website http://www.diabetes-normalsugars.com/.
    (Note: the Bernstein diet can be improved by adding more raw foods, as Dr. Bass recommends, while still keeping the diet optimally low-carb.)

    QUOTES :
    "Dr. Kirshner has also reported that other chronic ailments can be treated very successfully with raw vegetable juices, taken in some cases in amounts exceeding two quarts per day. He has cited recoveries from heart disease, prostrate gland disease, cancer, neuritis, arthritis, and hemorrhoids through the use of raw juices. In one diabetic case, remarkable improvement was noted within the first 21 days of treatment, and the insulin dosage was reduced from 15 to 5 units per day."

    "The therapeutic successes attained at the "Humlegaarden" are said to be phenomenal. Dr. Nolfi attributes this to the consumption of raw foods .... Patients at this sanitarium recover from all manner of diseases, including cancer, sterility, obesity, diabetes, heart debilitation, high blood pressure, rheumatism, epilepsy, asthma, and many others. In some cases even grey hair darkens in color. According to Dr. Nolfi, the raw diet "has a curative effect not only for a particular disease and on an individual organ, but on the organism as a whole. It cures not only the diseases contracted during our short span of life, but also those determined by hereditary predispositions."

    What should I do first?
    It is very simple - try to understand how bodies recover from disease, including diabetes, and develop trust in the healing powers of your body.
    Read, read, read - and be open to new ideas. TIP: start with the booklet version of Dr. Bass website (www.drbass.com) free download here, that has 88 pages of valuable advice and extracts from his books, and from where this quote comes:
    "A volunteer for a hospice gave me a small booklet written by a woman who cured herself of cancer by drinking raw carrot juice. I thought that was pretty bizarre and unrealistic. But read the book anyway. I tried the carrot juice. Within 10 days my dyslexia vanished. ..... (Primitive Diet Example)"

    Can fasting be used for diabetes recovery?
    If none of your body functions is too deteriorated (e.g. your insulin mechanism), and if you are not in a deficient stage (e.g. from veganism), this is usually the most efficient method - but there are precautions, and professional supervision is recommended.
    Usually it is best to start the recovery process with change in lifestyle and nutrition, and first at a later stage try some shorter fasts (1 to 3 days), until you eventually may be ready for a longer fast. Only if you are perfectly healthy may it be ok to fast without supervision.
    Read: My First Water Fast - "In the course of my life afterwards, I have always been my own doctor and in the 3 times I had influenza during my lifetime, I always went on a fast, and the flu NEVER failed to disappear after 3 days. This radical experiment changed my life forever."

    What is the greatest pitfall after recovery from diabetes has started?
    ANSWER: The detoxification symptoms, which look like disease symptoms, and might cause you to panic and stop the detox process. If you ever need professional support, this is when. The first time we experience serious detoxification (a natural and healthy process), handholding is invaluable.
    Read: What Symptoms to Expect when Improving Your Diet - "People who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions will frequently tend to eliminate poisons through the skin with new rashes or eruptions."
    "With some, colds which haven't appeared for a long time may occur, or even fevers. This is nature's way of housecleaning. Understand that these actions are constructive, even though unpleasant at the moment. Don't, but don't, try to stop these symptoms ..."

    What can I do on my own?
    Without competent professional advice - here is what you can do on your own to get a big step closer to your goal:
  • you can change your diet towards more raw, natural, organic, and especially non-toxic food and drink
  • you can eat minimally, and use food combining & sequential eating techniques
  • you need to sleep more, and stop wasting energy
    Dr. Bass website www.drbass.com is full of advice on these topics. For real-life case stories read the free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS by Dr. Bass: "Usually, within a few weeks, people feel much better and in 4 months time, the body becomes stabilized and feels consistently well. And within a period of less than one year, almost all health problems will have disappeared - even large tumors and growths."

    Diet: should I avoid sugar and starches?
    The less new toxins you add to your body - the easier the daily detoxification will be (= your body's automatic cleaning process that goes on all the time).
    How toxic are carbohydrates (sugar & starches)? To find out - read these articles:
    Drs. Eades: High-Carbohydrate Problems - about insulin, and about primitive diets.
    Why Eat Less Carbohydrates? - with insulin article by Dr. Rosedale.
    "What is the minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates? ZERO." "Insulin is by far your biggest poison"

    What diets are best for recovery from diabetes?
    Usually a diet that is mainly raw, as well as non-toxic and low in carbohydrates. In certain difficult disease cases diet must alternate with fasting for proper healing to get started.
    Diet example 1: Dr. Cursio's Natural Hygiene (vegetarian) diet and food plan
    Diet example 2: Sample Raw Diet daily menu. Or find diets in the free booklet: REMARKABLE RECOVERIES FROM SEVERE HEALTH PROBLEMS.
    Diet example 3: Make the above 2 example diets more low-carb (no grains, potatoes, corn, rice) - or find low-carb diets in books by Drs. Eades, Atkins, etc. and make these more raw.

    More pitfalls
    If you do self-healing on your own, here are some more pitfalls to avoid:
    1. You have to remember to respect your body's ability, and that healing may take longer than you want, and you may feel confused if it works or not and want to give up.
    2. Your body may be severely drug-damaged, or for some other reason cannot recover 100%, and you must always respect your body's signs, but at the same time be patient since sometimes our bodies perform miracles.
    3. You may misunderstand some of the "healing symptoms" for "disease symptoms" -- or the opposite: you may mistake a serious warning sign for a healing symptom. - This is an area where you may need some handholding by a no-drugs specialist.
    4. You may try to mix no-drugs methods with (alternative/medical) drug methods -- but you can NOT detoxify if you add toxins (drugs, supplements, herbs, lotions, potions) at the same time! Also remember that sugar is a potent toxin that should be avoided. (Colonics should be avoided for the same reason - since toxins may enter the body via a colon under over-pressure.)

    Choose approach - possibly find a specialist
    There are a multitude of drug-free healing approaches that will work to reverse diabetes - but which approach is optimal? To decide which is the most efficient in your case, what will make you heal maximally in shortest time, it is often best to consult a professional with experience and theoretical knowledge in the specialized field of drug-free healing. Or you can go to a detoxification (fasting) retreat, but always choose an educated doctor who has IAHP certification.
    Dr. Bass specializes in assisting people who want to go the self-healing route at home, by offering low-cost phone consultations with free follow-up calls for weeks.
    You can always begin by reading & learn, start your recovery process, and first when you feel you may need assistance, call a specialist --- BUT if you make a mistake in the beginning it may slow the healing. So it is often best to start out with a good specialist.

    What is the cause of diabetes?
    Read:  How Important is Diagnosis? - by Dr. Stanley Bass, explaining the 3 factors of disease - namely enervation, toxemia, deficiency.
    Except for mechanical damage and accidents these are the only disease causes.
    Of these toxemia is the most common cause - and the cure is called detoxification.
    Here are the good news: every person has a built-in system for automatic detoxification:
    "Even if a person has a baffling, rare disease and the diagnosis is unknown, if he or she eats properly or fasts if necessary, the body will surely heal itself, as long as sufficient vitality is present."

    For diabetics sugar and many carbohydrate foods are the major toxins and must be avoided during the healing phase. Diabetics should learn about the insulin mechanism - read these articles: Drs. Eades and Dr. Rosedale.

    How can lack of energy (or enervation) be a cause of diabetes?
    Read the same article: How Important is Diagnosis? - about lack of energy as disease cause - about the enervation-toxemia cycle:
    "Enervation leads to a reduction of the body's ability to digest, absorb, assimilate and excrete body wastes - thus leading to a retention of wastes in the cells and tissues and thereby causing disease."
    So it is a destructive circle: enervation increases the toxemia (poisoning) - and toxemia in turn does increase the enervation (lack of energy).

    How long time does it take to get well from diabetes?
    Read:  The Time-Factor in Recovery by Dr. Herbert Shelton- "Quick relief, even if only temporary, is what is so generally demanded. This produces an aftermath of troubles that are often worse than the troubles they are given to relieve."

    What is the major factor behind recovery from diabetes?
    ENERGY!! You will recover from diabetes if (and only if) your body has enough energy and vitality to detoxify.
    Read: Energy - How Acquired and Lost in the Body - about how eating is connected to immediate loss of energy - and the 4 points for getting more energy (mainly correct eating, and enough sleep).
    Read: New Concepts in Nutrition where Dr. Bass explains the energy concepts in more detail - giving a summary of nutritional knowledge accumulated over a lifetime

    How is your energy level?
    QUESTION: Are you depressed or happy? Do you have low energy or lots of energy? Do you need to "re-charge your batteries"?
    Read: The Relation Between Energy And Feeling And Thought - for more about how energy is acquired and lost, and about how feelings are directly connected to the amount of energy in the body.
    TIP: To stop energy drainage due to tension & worry - learn Emotional Freedom Technique EFT from www.emofree.com (free manual) - an ingenious do-it-yourself acu-tapping method.

    How can good eating techniques help charge body batteries?
    Read about methods to save energy:
  • Food combining - Sequential Eating
  • Minimal Diet - example Luigi Cornaro
  • New Concepts in Nutrition, Health and Rapid Healing of Illness - how juicing and blending saves digestion energy

    Since diabetes recovery and detoxification takes time - don't I need a lot of willpower?
    Try to get inspired in the beginning - and then stick to the new lifestyle long enough to see results, and get inspired again.
    Read: The Causes of Addiction to Habits - "Whenever we change a long-standing habit, a new pattern is at first unpleasant. After short time it becomes tolerable. After we become accustomed to it, it becomes enjoyable."
    Read: How to Overcome Temptation Instantaneously - "He who accepts only the right thoughts - he who discriminatingly chooses the thoughts which are conducive to his highest physical, emotional and mental wellbeing will perform the right actions at all times."

  • When do I need professional support?
    It is always a good idea to get professional support during your first detoxification.
    Why? You will probably need hand-holding - since in the beginning it can be really hard to trust the body's wisdom, especially when it produces a lot of detox symptoms or "disease" symptoms. A qualified hygienic doctor will explain what's happening - ensure a good comfort level (= keep the temporary detox symptoms mild) - as well as enable recovery in shortest time possible. Sometimes you don't want the detox to go too fast, with strong detox ("disease") symptoms - but a slower process with milder symptoms.
    Note: If you have waited too long, and there has been degeneration, your body may not be able to recover 100%. But even then there can be amazing recoveries.
    For very serious diseases good professional support is strongly recommended.
    If you are dependent on drugs - use professional medical help to reduce the amounts, to become drug-free (if possible).

    Note: there is a big difference between alternative medicine that uses (alternative) drugs, and natural drug-free healing that teaches detoxification. Dr. Bass does NOT sell or promote any drug or other product. He has instead tirelessly been teaching about drug-free healing for 60+ years.
