Advances in Diabetes Treatment through Natural Alternative Medicine
Is There a Cure for Diabetes? – Ask Dr. Ron Radio
Diabetes – Cherubino Health Center Information
Diabetes has become a pandemic. According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million Americans currently have diabetes. The number of new cases diagnosed in 2011 alone totaled over 1.9 million. Throughout the 20th century, this disease was considered “incurable” with the only hope for the nation resting squarely on the shoulders of American pharmaceutical companies. Today, however, we are beginning to make strides with a less-invasive, complementary, integrative treatment methodology.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes, which is typically divided into two subgroups, is a disorder where cells have never had or have lost the ability to diffuse sugar across the cell membrane. The substance that normally assists in this process is called insulin. Because sugar, in this case glucose, is not being processed properly, the cells believe they are starving and call for the production of additional insulin. This urgent cry for more and more insulin occurs until the body is “flooded” and begins to shut down from what is now a state of hyperinsulinemia. To combat this constant struggle of cell starvation vs. over-secretion of insulin, people with diabetes must constantly monitor their blood sugar and insulin levels. Symptoms of high blood sugar: http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/symptoms/
Typical allopathic treatment:
- Insulin replacement through injection
- Blood glucose lowering medications
- Stem cell transplant surgery
- Vague suggestions about diet and exercise
While these measures can be initially life-saving, they do nothing to correct the underlying causes of diabetes. By comparison, alternative, integrative medicine addresses the origins of diabetes by realizing that this disease is systemic and treating the whole body.
Natural Treatment Methods for Diabetes and Pre-diabetes:
- Targeted clinical nutrition with specific supplements
- Acid alkaline restoration of body tissues
- Detoxification of body tissues
Restoration of weakened neurovisceral system (evaluating and restoring deficient organ function) (please see informational reports – “Energy Medicine, Healing for the 21st-Century” and “Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Lifestyle”)
Typical Treatment Protocol for a Diabetic or Prediabetic Patient under Care at Cherubino Health Center:
- Initial consultation
- EMI evaluation performed
- PET (Pulse Energy Technique) performed for six to eight weeks at one to three treatments per week based on severity of their condition and individual needs.
- Clinical nutritional recommendations
- Targeted supplementation for cellular and organ restoration (vitamin, mineral, herbal, homeopathic, etc.)
- Adrenal gland saliva and urine testing
- PRA (Pulse Reflex Analysis) performed
- Maintenance treatment with periodic modification of at home nutritional protocols
- Repeat EMI evaluation
At Cherubino Health Center we continue to help people suffering from diabetes or pre-diabetes through an integrative approach for the improvement of health and bodily function. Targeted, hands-on treatment and clinical nutrition represent the most effective treatment protocol for this chronic condition. Statistically, most diabetics suffer from this potentially disabling and even fatal condition, as the result of general cellular toxicity, resulting in this severe metabolic disorder.
It is common to find liver toxicity and associated liver dysfunction in diabetic patients. While traditional blood tests are capable of accurately identifying blood sugar abnormalities, they are inadequate at measuring liver function and liver toxicity unless there is an extreme amount of damage already present. Typically, in the early stages of diabetes, damage to the liver is beginning, but does not yet show up on routine blood tests. The same is also true of other organs associated with diabetes progression, including the adrenal glands and kidneys.
Because of this inadequacy, it is important to take a holistic approach to this disabling and potentially deadly disease. When looking for a natural healthcare doctor, it is important to find one that understands not only the traditional evaluation and treatment methods, but one who is experienced with newer methods such as EMI (electromagnetic imaging), saliva and urine testing, PRA (pulse reflex analysis), clinical nutrition, PET (pulse energy technique) and other energy based medical approaches.
Through the center we provide the Diabetes Management and Support System. With this approach we are able to offer individualized care for people suffering from diabetes or prediabetes. The full program, which includes targeted hands-on treatment, is delivered through a series of visits to Cherubino Health Center beginning with initial consultation and evaluation. We also offer the program without the treatment component by way of Internet or phone consultation for those patients who are unable to attend treatment sessions at the center. In these cases we will assist those patients in finding a practitioner in their area who can provide the hands-on treatment components specific to their needs.
All patients that are participating in the diabetes support program are given access to written and audio support materials as well as e-mail and phone support.
At Cherubino Health Center we encourage a three-prong approach to natural healthcare:
evaluation, professional advice, and hands-on treatment.
