Cure For Diabetes? 5 Revealing Facts Your Doctor Has Missed

October 10, 2019


Is there a cure for diabetes? So many
people are confused they’re asking me these questions because a lot of people
are getting off medications they’re normalizing their blood sugars through
lifestyle intervention through lifestyle changes and yet their doctors are
telling them that there is no cure the official viewpoint is that this is a
chronic incurable disease so what is it how can people get these results today
I’m going to talk about this and we’re gonna give you a different perspective
so you’re gonna have a whole new viewpoint and a whole new outlook on
this you’re gonna like it stay tuned I’m Dr. Sten Ekberg I’m a holistic doctor
and a former Olympic decathlete and if you want to truly master health by
understanding how the body really works make sure you subscribe and hit that
notification bell so that you don’t miss anything I did some research on diabetes
cure and here’s what WebMD.com says Is there diabetes cure with all the
research on diabetes and advances in diabetes treatments it’s tempting to
think that someone would surely have found a diabetes cure by now but the
reality is that there is no cure for diabetes neither type 1 diabetes or type
2 diabetes so let’s just make it really clear that for the purposes of this
video we’re talking about type 2 diabetes which is insulin resistance too
much insulin type 1 is a completely different thing and we’ll do some other
videos on that but that is a complete lack of insulin so they’re really two
opposites we’re going to talk about type 2 diabetes here so first we need to
clarify some terms when they say is there a diabetes cure what does the word
cure actually mean so let’s look at that so I looked that up the official
definition cure can be a verb or a noun as a verb cure is to relieve a person of
the symptoms of a disease and they say that a synonym of
of a cure is to heal or restore to health so here’s the problem they first
of all they think that the cure is to relieve the symptoms they think that if
you have cured someone and relieve them of a symptom then you have healed them
they believe that health is merely the absence of symptoms okay and that’s the
first problem they don’t understand physiology they don’t understand that
diseases develop as a result of a long term imbalance for example a heart
attack if someone gets a heart attack that’s the first symptom but this person
spent 20-30 years developing the physiology getting the body out of
balance to the point where the heart attack was inevitable and the heart
attack was the first symptom but they were unhealthy they were out of balance
for 20-30 years so lack of symptoms does not mean that you’re healthy but when
they’re looking for a cure they’re simply looking for a way to relieve
symptoms of a disease that’s the official definition and how are they
looking to do that that comes in the noun the cure can be a noun and now
they’re looking for a substance that cures a disease and a synonym for the
substance would be medicine or medication so the only way that you can
cure something is to treat a symptom with a medication that is the definition
of a cure is there a cure for diabetes no absolutely not and we’re not
interested in a cure we’re going to talk about something completely different
we’re going to talk about reversing diabetes and we’re going to talk about
five facts five truths five realizations that is going to completely change the
picture on how you look at these things first we have to understand the word
cure is not what we’re looking for that the cure is not about reversing a
disease and that’s why they will never find a cure and will
well get into that they will never be a pill to restore health there may be a
pill to treat a symptom but again they’re not going to change the
underlying conditions and this is what we’re going to talk about here’s a big
one for you the number two fact you have to understand is type 2 diabetes is not
a disease and now you’re going hey whoa now you
lost me you made some sense from time to time but here you’re just really getting
off so what do I mean type 2 is not a disease well let’s talk about that and
we need to understand a few things as part of that that it’s not a disease
it’s a physiological adaptation okay it’s not a disease because there’s
nothing broken there’s nothing missing the body parts are still there the
pancreas is still making insulin but the body is responding it’s adapting to
something that brings us to part three that the body is smart
it has homeostasis this the body isn’t random everything the body does is on
purpose everything that gets out of balance in the body is because something
is making it go out of balance something is pushing it out of balance
there is a principle in the body called homeostasis and that’s the principle of
balance that’s the principle of healing that the body will always attempt to
return to homeostasis homeostasis is balance something pushes it out of
balance as soon as the push is gone as soon as the pushing factor is gone the
body returns to homeostasis that’s sort of like gravity that gravity works on
water a spring a water stream coming down a mountainside will always attempt
to bring that water down to sea level always no exceptions
the body will always attempt to return to homeostasis just like the
water returns to the sea the body returns to homeostasis gravity doesn’t
work sometimes healing doesn’t work sometimes physiology doesn’t work
sometimes it always works that’s just the way it is it’s built into the fabric
of nature that your body is designed to do the right thing for the right reasons
if it appears that it’s not doing the right things there is a factor there’s
something creating an imbalance okay so we have to get to that understanding of
the body’s innate intelligence the principle of homeostasis and that
physiology is this principle it’s these factors it’s the study these factors
that that guide healing that guide homeostasis
if type-2 diabetes is not a disease then what is it it is an adaptation what is
an adaptation it’s when your body adapts it copes it’s changes in response to
something so let’s take a few examples just to make you more familiar with that
what is hypertrophy it’s when something grows larger so a bodybuilder he puts
pressure he puts stress on his muscles he puts a tremendous stress repeated
many times many hours a day and now the body senses hey you know if I’m going to
be able to keep up with this work in the future I have to change I have to build
more muscle I have to create more muscle fiber so I can cope better with this
stress in the future that’s an adaptation that growing muscle is an
adaptation to an imposed demand we have pushed the muscle and the muscle
responds the opposite happens with someone who’s a couch potato or if you
break your arm or you break a leg and you put a cast on it
now when you take that cast off a couple months later there’s virtually no muscle
left there is atrophy because when we don’t use the muscle the body senses hey
you know this there’s not much use for this muscle tissue if this if the owner
of this muscle isn’t going to start using it I’m going to downsize I’m going
to down-regulate it I don’t want to spend precious resources rebuilding that
muscle if it’s not going to be used for anything use it or lose it
that’s where hypertrophy and atrophy comes in
but everything the body does is in response to something if you normally
live at sea level and you have a certain amount of red blood cells and then you
move up in the mountains at 6,000 feet above sea level what’s going to happen
your body is going to up regulate the production of red blood cells so now all
of a sudden you got 20% more red blood cells why because there’s less oxygen in
the air that’s the stress so there’s an imposed demand your body needs to make
more red blood cells so you can still transport the oxygen when there’s not so
much of it around that’s an adaptation it’s a physiological adaptation so what
does that have to do with with diabetes well diabetes is a late stage result
it’s the late stage of insulin resistance so when we eat things that
trigger insulin primarily sugar and carbohydrates then insulin production
goes up if we do that six times a day then insulin production goes up six
times a day and insulin then starts pushing blood sugar into the cell and
the cell is grateful at first for this fuel but then eventually when the cell
has had enough fuel it starts resisting it starts adapting it’s a physiological
adaptation because this l can only use so much fuel so when
there’s more and more and more more coming what’s the cell going to do it’s
going to be smart it’s going to be intelligent it’s gonna say enough is
enough I’m gonna start closing down the gate so I don’t get flooded with all
this fuel that’s what insulin resistance is it’s not the body being stupid it’s
not the body being random or mistaken or broken or flawed the body is doing
exactly what it’s supposed to when it’s being overwhelmed it’s going to try to
oppose that factor that’s overwhelming and it’s going to become insulin
resistance until that avalanche of fuel and sugar starts to pull back so this is
a crucial factor in the understanding of holistic health that there are no
mistakes in the body and there are virtually no diseases as at least not
when we’re talking about functional problems when we’re talking about high
blood sugar and diabetes and digestive problems we’re talking about functional
problems we’re talking about imbalances that develop over time because we’re
pushing the body and the body is adapting to respond so type 2 diabetes
is not a disease it’s a physiological adaptation it’s an intelligent response
to an unbalanced environment and the unbalanced environment is on modern food
it’s food that we have never ever seen before it’s in its carbohydrates and
sugar and processed foods in amounts that the human body has never
experienced not even close so once we understand that number four is more
obvious it kind of follows that when they say that there is no cure in the
medical world they’re right because what would that mean if the body is always on
purpose and it always returns to balance then a cure would be a way of inventing
a medication a substance that could somehow make the body be happy out of
balance that we keep insulting it with an overwhelm with an avalanche of fuel
and we expect to be able to create a pill to maintain that imbalance and keep
the body happy it can’t work it won’t work because that would be like trying
to find a cure for gravity we can’t do it there’s never going to be a cure for
physiology physiology is the body’s tendency to return to balance gravity is
water’s tendency to return to the sea we won’t find a cure we can’t find a cure
because it’s not the way it’s supposed to be and if the water is held up by a
dam then it can appear that the water isn’t returning to the sea for a while
we can observe an imbalance we can observe high blood pressure we can
observe insulin resistance and in high blood sugar but the moment that we
remove the barrier the moment that we remove the interference the factor that
has been upsetting the balance then the water starts flowing again we don’t have
to teach the water to flow again it already knows how gravity never stops
working your body’s healing your body’s
homeostasis never stops working because it can’t it’s built in to the innate
intelligence into the very fabric of nature but it’s easy to understand why
there is so much confusion if we have these two different worldviews if we on
the one hand understand the innate intelligence and homeostasis and on the
other hand in the medical world they believe that the body is random and that
it’s mistaken and that it breaks down for no reason on occasion that it does
stupid things that it randomly starts resisting insulin so the official view
of insulin resistance is that the cells are
no longer responding normally to blood-glucose in other words the implied
statement there is the cells are not responding normally to normal food
anymore and of course normal food today is 300 grams of carbohydrates 170 grams
of sugar and the food pyramid with the base being starches okay of course if
you believe that is normal food then you’re not going to understand anything
that we’re talking about here we have to first put the body back in the picture
of what is normal food for humans what have we been eating for the longest time
and we’ve discussed all these topics in more detail on other video so feel free
to check those out for the for the complete version of each of these so
this brings us to number five so that we started out asking is there a cure for
diabetes and we’ve pretty much come up with based on the medical definition of
a cure no there isn’t but once we understand that type-2
diabetes is not a disease it is a physiological adaptation then number
five becomes the obvious question can you reverse a physiological adaptation
yes so adaptations are reversible and once
we start understanding this then all that it comes down to is that we want to
reduce reverse the factors that forced the adaptation in the first place so if
you move up in the mountains and start making more red blood cells you’re and
then you move back to sea level then your body is going to start down
regulating red blood cells because you don’t need so many anymore 20% less will
do just fine at sea level and if you go back in the mountains it’ll start going
back and forth back and forth it will do it again because it’s intelligent so if
the insulin resistance developed because we forced
certain things on the body then the moment we stop forcing it then it will
start returning to homeostasis it’s as simple as that
what does it mean then to stop the factors it means eat less of the food
that stimulates insulin and what is that primarily sugars and processed starches
any kind of starch really but but especially processed starches so we want
to eat less sugar we want to be moderate to very little fruit if you’re already
insulin resistant we want to cut out grains both processed and complex
because there’s very little difference in blood sugar impact and we want to
start eating more fats moderate protein and more whole foods because they have
the fiber and they have the whole package of what you need we also want to
eat less frequently because if you eat something that stimulates insulin and
then you do it once you get one burst of insulin if you do it six times now
you’re pushing insulin six times you’re giving the read the cell six reasons to
become insulin resistant the longer you go between meals the bigger the chance
the greater the opportunity for the cell to start burning through some of that
fuel so that maybe it gets hungry again maybe it will want some fuel sometime in
the future so there’s lots and lots of different
videos we’ve done videos on each one of these on lchf low carb high fat on
ketogenic diet on intermittent fasting so that’s about reducing the the insulin
production and the frequency and then of course you also want to add in some
exercise and some stress management because exercise makes the muscles more
insulin sensitive it gives your body a chance to burn through some fuels
besides all the other benefits of exercise and become a little more
insulin sensitive and stress management is
because stress produces higher blood sugar stress causes cortisol releases
and cortisol raises blood sugar which raises insulin and you can actually
become insulin-resistant pretty much from stress alone the more of these
things that you do the greater your chance of reversing these adaptations so
don’t wait for a type-2 diabetes cure and understand when they say that there
is no cure understand why they’re saying that they’re speaking a different
language they’re talking about a substance to reduce a symptom whereas
what you’re really looking for is a healing process it’s a reversal of the
adaptation and there’s never going to be a pill that can cure that can fix the
homeostasis because the body is always intelligent it’s always adapting to the
imbalance and if you have an imbalance then just remove the cause for that
imbalance and your body will go right back to doing what it’s supposed to do
so both healing and gravity are laws of nature
they always work do we know if they’re going to work tomorrow we can’t say for
sure but my bet would be that gravity and healing are still gonna work
tomorrow if anyone want to bet against me on that
then please just leave your comments down below and I’ll get back to you if
you enjoy information like this and you like learning how things really work
then make sure that you subscribe and hit that notification bell so that you
don’t miss anything and please share this information with as many people as
you can because diabetes is a bigger problem than we have ever seen as far as
health concerns and the official version is that there’s nothing you can do about
it but now you know better so let them know thanks for watching

    The word “doctor” is derived from the Latin word docco, which means “to teach.” You are a true doctor and a professor Dr. Eckberg. The medical people that sit up in offices with their names and specialties custom embroidered on their white smocks with a stethoscope hanging around their necks are "practitioners" that practice on sick patients using toxic drugs, risky procedures, and surgery, and are not true doctors in the real sense of the word, to their patients because they rarely teach anything in that setting. They are generally nothing but drug dealers for big pharma, treating symptoms only, and making their sick patients even sicker with all the side effects of those drugs, insuring never ending repeat business and big profits!

    Dear Dr. Ekberg,

    Thank you for the invaluable video having a title name " Cure for diabetes, 5 revealing facts… " I understand and agree and appreciate your approach to the diabetesT2. Unfortunately, many people inluding some physicians are not aware of the basic facts. Besides, some people get angry for just hearing new ideas which may limit their eating habits. Aside from these, I want to add few points which may help you ( in fact help us ) on your next videos :

    1. You are a very competent in what you are doing. You are doing an excellent job. Besides, you clearly state what you mean. On the other hand, through your experience you know that most people do not understand you readily because they can not break their bias easily. I think for this reason, you repeat what you say many times. You give many examples and sometimes broaden the subject unnecessarily. As a result, some people may lose the main subject, get confused and lose interest in the video.

    2. 22 minutes is too long for such a video. It should be about 8 to 10 minutes at most. Otherwise, people lose their interest and quit. This means they can not benefit from it for good.

    3. You may add a summary section underneath to emphasize what you mean. Some understand better by reading basic information.

    Hello, Dr. Sten. How are you? I'm Tatiane and I'm from Brazil! First of all, I'd really like to thank you for all support and for all important information and enlightenment you have given to us through those spectacular and blessed videos. I have been desperate and since I watched your videos my worries have really reduced! I've been diagnosed with prediabetes and since then it has been a total disarray in my life. I've cried a lot, but now I understood that it is possible that I can lead my body to balance again. The results of my blood test were: a fasting blood sugar level of 83mg/dL, a Glycated hemoglobin (A1C) of 5,7 and an insulin level of 7,30. I'm still afraid of not making those levels lower. I'm already very thin and I'm sad and worried that I'll loose more weight going on the diet that cuts off carbohydrates. I'd like to ask you a few questions !
    Do you think it's still possible for me to recover totally from it if I continue on my diet? And once I go down on those levels, will I be able to eat normal food without going prediabetic again ?
    I also have another question: approximately how long will it take for me to lower that insulin resistance level?
    I really thank you for all! May God bless you!

  • Reply gene tinney June 22, 2019 at 8:50 pm

    I am a type 2 diabetic. My C-peptide test was 0.7. I have been on keto for 10 months and have lost 40 pounds. I was off all diabetic medications, but eating only about 12 grams carbs per day. Recently, when I increased carbs to 30 net per day, my BS went back up to 150 to 200. I expected to be able to eat at least 30 g. carbs without medication, but no. I don't see how I can have insulin resistance after weight loss and 10 months on keto. Is it possible that instead of insulin resistance, I could simply be producing too little insulin. I have started using some insulin again to get the BS below 150 mg/dL. It does not seem that I can reverse diabetes. If I eat carbs, BS goes up. What do you think of this? Diabetes is very complex. Perhaps there are other reasons for Type 2 diabetes – than insulin resistance.

    Excellent explanation, the best so far, thanks. In fighting to reverse my adaptation I found an anomaly that I will like to understand. I’m now medicine free both for diabetes and blood pressure. My diet (keto) is zero Carbs (of course a few grams per day, less than 5). Instead of having breakfast I have a 10 km long walk in the morning and then the paradox when I get home and measure my glycemic numbers still on fast 14 hours after my last meal I find between 130 and 170. After eating my numbers go down and settle between 100 and 110. Why my body produces so much glucose after dawn and exercise? Is it too much? Should I worry? Is it a matter of re adaptation? Look forward to your answer. Thanks.

    Thanks Dr. Ekberg giving holistic view of diabetes, a physiological imbalance which does not need a cure but restoring balance (homeostasis) . Doctors in developing countries still recommend six small meals instead of three big meals per day. Your advice, Intermittent fasting , had been practiced by Buddhist monks about 2500 years ago and took only one meal a day (6 hour window ; Dr. Fung), another philanthropic doctor. More meals per day means bigger market for processed food and more diabetes. It means more pills and more artificial insulin, a market for pharmaceuticals.

    You are on the path of saving lives of millions of mislead people. Mislead by learned people.

    Thanks again sharing your wisdom!

    Thanks for all the useful information you are sharing. I had followed keto and IF diet last year after which my Hb1Ac came from 11.47 to 5.7 in three months. Thereafter I could not follow the same. As a result, my sugar has risen again and Hb1Ac is now 12.0. However this time I have lost my muscles on the arm and legs, and weight has reduced from 57 to 51. Belly fat persists (adrenal body type). I have restarted the keto diet. How could I gain muscles? I have recently started keto diet + IF + HIIT. Is that enough? I do not take any medication.

    Brilliant Ekberg! This concept and technique can be applied to almost every human problems. First, understanding the function of whatever we want to heal/cure/reverse, secondly find out the root cause of the problem, and finally we have to find the right way to move it back to the original proper function BUT NOT TRYING TO HELP ADAPTING TO THE MALFUNCTIONING CONDITION JUST FOR TEMPORARY PLEASURE!!!

    I was recently diagnosed with T2D and your videos have literally been a lifesaver for me.. I was overweight and prescribed Metformin and Insulin with a blood sugar reading of 465.. By watching your videos on YouTube about reversing T2D by implementing intermittent fasting and Keto (low carb) diet I have gone from 230 lbs. to 195 lbs. in less than 3 months and have gotten off the insulin completely and reduced the Metformin significantly to near zero already.. and my daily average blood sugar is now 90 to 110 so far.. I have basically reversed the T2D and look forward to getting down to about 180 lbs. and quitting the Metformin having fully reversed the T2D … I watch you, Dr. Eric Berg, and Dr. Jason Fung and have learned what I need to learn to save my own life.. I like your videos the best as you are a natural born healer and teacher that is gifted with the ability to not only "teach" but the ability to "reach" people like me who love to learn and in this case "need" to learn about this important subject that is a plague in America today and not fully understood by even the best medical doctors.. You explain things so very well that they simply make sense and help me so very much.. God bless you and "THANK YOU". ~ Best Regards, Kirk W. Sherry
