There was an article in our Newspaper about a Dr. Mercola who claims a new type of x-ray for breast cancer. This method was not approved by FDA. He is a on-line contributor with a large following. He sells vitamins and suggest methods to help everything. How do we know what the FDA gets to approve and is safe for us? Most doctors are against herbs and vitamins. They prefer things from your pharmacy.

Do some research into Dr Mercola, you may find it enlightening.

Saw his vid before. Very encouraging indeed. I think he emphasizes mostly on diet, on what not to eat. The way I see is if you follow his advice you'll stay within normal blood sugar all the time which can be confidently called "cured" as oppose to just remission. This diabetes cure has been heatedly debated whether it's really a cure or remission. IMO if you maintain your BS within normal range without meds then at least you're cured. Someone said even if a magic pill was invented to completely cure DM, if you go back to bad diet & lifestyle the disease will just return. Any healthy person who eats 10 bars of Milk Chocolate often will get sick. Eat right, feel right.

There is no cure. If you have to follow a specific diet or lifestyle plan in order to stay "cured" then you are just controlling, not curing. The underlying disease is still there. Keep in mind that high blood sugar is just one symptom of diabetes, it's not diabetes itself. One meal that doesn't fall into the strict diet plan will show up how cured you really are.

What would you say about maybe some of the medications doctors give and people wind up with complications. There so many scams out there, but there must be some protection for the public. I was scared to death to go for chemo and radiation now I can't complain bec that was in 1994 and I'm still here. But if it happened again I'd be the same darn way. It's just me. I was a nervous wreck going to get pins taken out of my wrist even my blood pressure went up and everyone is telling me relax. The doctor I was talking about has several vitamins for different things. It's amazing. Thank you for your reply.
