Treatment for Diabetics & Using Homeopathy
The issue is what type of diabetes for understanding the prognosis. Homeopathy can be very helpful to support the person in their healing of diabetes but lifestyle changes also must happen.
Dr. Tim Stryker and Jenny Hwozdek, CCH, RsHom(NA) wrote the following information on diabetes and homeopathy which explains the situation very well:
“Type I Diabetes is an auto immune disease where the body has created antibodies that destroy the insulin producing cells in the pancreas while not causing harm to the cells in the pancreas that produce digestive enzymes, etc. Type I diabetes is not genetic. Chances are these children
had some sort of infection preceding the diagnosis of Type I diabetes that resulted in the creation of antibodies that attacked the pancreas. So, Type I Diabetes is more about an Immune System that short-circuited and attacked itself.
The cause of Type I diabetes is not related to Diabetes in the family or to diet. In this scenario, there is a deeper susceptibility that results in the body turning on itself. By the time a child is symptomatic with Type I diabetes, virtually all the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas have been destroyed and that it is very difficult to heal something that is “missing.” It would be much easier to reverse damage when cells are still in the inflammatory process, but unfortunately, this stage of the insulin cell destruction is virtually symptomless—the body makes due with reduced cells and only shows crisis when the cells are mostly gone.
Type II Diabetes is directly related to hereditary factors and diet. Someone can inherit a weak pancreas (probably weakened by bad diet in the parents over a lifetime) and is then exacerbated by the person having A LOT of BODY FAT. The body fat is what causes the pancreas to overwork and requires the body to produce extra amounts of insulin which ultimately wears that pancreas out. Historically, Type II Diabetes set in later in life and it took 50 to 60+ years to wear the pancreas out. Today, with the epidemic of Obesity in children (especially large amounts of belly fat—belly fat cells really over stimulates insulin production) combined with a highly processed, simple carbohydrate/sugar laden diet—kids are doing in less than 20 years what it used to take 50 to 60+ years to accomplish.
With this in mind, it is then the loss of Body Fat that will do the most to control insulin levels and help control Type II diabetes over time. Diabetic kids need not only improve their diet, but they must loose weight in order to put less stress on the weakened pancreas and then there is a possibility of healing this overtaxed organ.
Homeopathy can help in terms of diabetes by increasing
overall health, addressing the underlying inherited weakness and shifting the mental/emotional states that might be contributing to obesity, but these lifestyle factors must be addressed as well to heal Type II diabetes.”
