Some reasearchers found out something amazing. That diabetes apears to be a very curable disease, at least in rats. This means that it is probably curable in humans. I have spoken to many chiropractors who claimed they fixed diabetes in people. This is against popular research, and is actually illegal for a chiropractor to claim.
This new research may give a clue as to what is happening.
Here is the article about the research.
In summary they found out that in someone with diabetes the pain nerves leaving the pancreas carry pain signals to the brain. They think that these nerves start inflamation in the pancreus, and that pancreus stops making insulin.
They found that by simply injecting these nerves with chili pepper, they could get the nerves to stop carrying the pain signals. This stopped the inflamation, and in rats at least the pancreaus started making insulin again, practically imediately.
I think that the drug companies want us all to think that all or most diseases are genetic. If you think your disease is genetic, then you will not try to do anything about it and instead just take drugs. Ideas like that sell a lot of drugs.
The questions I did not see asked in the research, but I am sure will come up, will be Why was the pancreus sending pain signals in the first place? Was it the way the person was eating? Was it the nerves going to the pancreaus being irritated? Was the pain nerve itself being irritated? If it was one of the last two, could that be a pinched nerve problem?
I don’t know where this will lead, but I will tell you one thing. I predict in the next ten years, diabetes treatment will probably be vastly different than it is now, and I bet it will be tons more effective. Until then take care of your self!
