Most people with diabetes have type-2 diabetes, which used to be called ‘non-insulin dependent’ diabetes because, if properly managed, you’d never end up needing insulin. Type-2 diabetes is reversible and we’ll show you how.

Type-1 diabetes, or insulin dependent diabetes, may also be reversible but certainly it is possible to massively reduce your need for insulin by following the same low GL diet principles (always consult your Doctor or Healthcare professional regarding changes to medication).

The reason for this is simply because the body needs to make less insulin (or have injected in), your blood sugar doesn’t go up so much by eating low GL. There are also receptors listening out for insulin which become deaf over time with too many high blood sugar peaks and insulin release, however, they can become re-sensitised and more responsive to insulin with the mineral chromium and cinnamon.

High dose chromium supplementation, taking 200mcg (a small pill) with each meal helps to stabilise blood sugar levels. So too does a spoonful (3-6g) of cinnamon. Actually, there’s a substance within cinnamon called MCHP which is particularly effective and concentrated in a cinnamon extract called Cinnulin¬Æ. We’ll give you the full lowdown on chromium and cinnamon next week but you’ll see they are included in the report in your Library called ‘Say No to Diabetes’. Please read this and follow the principles.

There are two books that will support you in reversing type 2 diabetes. These are The Diabetes Weight-Loss Cookbook: A life-changing diet to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes by Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi, based on Dr David Unwin’s principles (the recipes are delicious!) and Say No to Diabetes by Patrick Holford.
