1.DIETARY CONSIDERATIONS-THE GLYCEMIC INDEX IS A MEASURE OF HOW QUICKLY A PARTICULAR FOOD RELEASES SUGAR INTO THE BLOODSTREAM.  FOR DIABETICS IT IS BEST TO EAT FOODS THAT ARE LOW ON THE GLYCEMIC INDEX AND AVOID FOODS THAT ARE HIGH ON THE GLYCEMIC INDEX. FISH, POULTRY,  MEAT, AND EGGS ARE FINE.  GREEN VEGETABLES ARE GOOD.  BEANS ARE GOOD.   AVOID WHITE BREAD, TORTILLAS, AND WHITE RICE, HOWEVER, BROWN RICE AND DARK BREAD WITHOUT WHITE FLOUR IS ACCEPTABLE. IF YOU CAN'T AVOID TORTILLAS, CORN TORTILLAS ARE BETTER THAN FLOUR TORTILLAS.  SUGAR FREE ICE CREAM IS ACCEPTABLE.  MILK IS ACCEPTABLE.  YOGURT WITHOUT ADDED SUGAR IS GOOD.  AVOID CEREALS WITH ADDED SUGAR.  OATMEAL, WITHOUT ADDED SUGAR, IS A GOOD CHOICE. CEREALS FROM BARLEY AND WHEAT BRAN WITHOUT ADDED SUGAR ARE GOOD.  PASTA IS GENERALLY GOOD. MOST FRUITS ARE ACCEPTABLE.  AVOID PINEAPPLE, WATERMELON, RAISINS AND ALL DRIED FRUIT. BANANAS ARE BORDERLINE.  IF YOU EAT THEM, EAT THEM IN MODERATION.  IF POSSIBLE, AVOID BANANAS. AVOID POTATOES, BUT SWEET POTATOES ARE FINE.  AVOID SUGARY BEVERAGES.  AVOID JUICES WITH ADDED SUGARS SUCH AS CORN SYRUP.  AVOID ALL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.  AVOID SNACK FOODS SUCH AS POTATO CHIPS.  NUTS ARE GOOD.  THERE ARE SUGAR FREE CANDIES INCLUDING CANDY BARS WHICH ARE ACCEPTABLE AS LONG AS THEY DON'T CONTAIN DRIED FRUIT.  CAKES AND COOKIES MADE WITH WHITE FLOUR AND CONTAINING SUGAR ARE TO BE AVOIDED.  NOPALES,  (SLICED CACTUS), A TRADITIONAL MEXICAN FOOD, IS OUTSTANDING FOR CONTROLLING DIABETES (SEE STUDY BELOW).

NEW-CLINICAL INFORMATION IS REVEALING THAT DIET DRINKS WITH ASPARTAME (ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER) ELEVATES BLOOD SUGAR-AVOID

#2 and #3 FROM-"TEXTBOOK OF NUTRITIONAL MEDICINE"-MELVYN WERBACH M.D., JEFFERY MOSS D.D.S

2.MEAL FREQUENCY- Frequent nibbling appears preferable to 3 meals and one snack.  In experiments with both normals (Jenkins, 1989) and non-insulin-dependent diabetics (Jenkins, 1992), a nibbling diet significantly reduced serum insulin and 24 hour urinary C peptide levels.  Moreover, for the diabetics, mean blood glucose levels was reduced (Jenkins,1992).

3.GLUCOSE TOLERANCE FACTOR- Glucose Tolerance Factor is a micronutrient which differs from typical vitamins and trace elements.  It is found in certain foods, especially brewers yeast (available at health food stores).  In response to acute increases of insulin in the blood GTF is released and potentiates insulin at the target organs (Mertz, 1975).  In a study with elderly non-insulin-dependent diabetics, supplementation with brewer's yeast, impoved glucose tolerance, increased insulin sensitivity and lowered blood lipid levels. (Monitor your blood sugar frequently because this therapy may change your needs for therapies administered by your physician).

4.CLINICAL OBSERVATION- Dr. David Williams D.C. stated that several teaspoons of corn starch in a dietetic (no sugar) pudding significantly helps control diabetes.  I have a brother-in-law (Dr. Arturo Tripp) who is a graduate of Stanford Medical School. He stated that a pharmacist teaching a course in nutrition made the same observation about corn starch in a dietetic pudding.  I recommended this therapy to 50 plus patients (elderly) in the Rio Grande Valley.  A 100 per cent stated that this therapy was helpful.  (Monitor your blood sugar frequently because this therapy may change your needs for the therapies administered by your physician).

5.GYMNEMA SYLVESTRE

The leaves of gymnema sylvestre which grows in the forests of central and southern India, have been employed as an adjunct in Aryuvedic Medicine for many centuries.

Experimental Control Study:  Gymnema Sylvestre 400 mg. daily was administered to 27 pts.with insulin dependent diabetes.  Insulin requirements came down by almost 50 per cent with fasting blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin and glycosylated plasma protein levels.

6.PRICKLE-PEAR CACTUS

The stem of the prickle-pear cactus (nopal) has a long folk-use in Mexico in the treatment of diabetes.

Experimental Double-blind study.  16 Type II diabetic pts. taking 500 gm of broiled nopal stems experienced a mean reduction of glucose (17%) and insulin (50%) levels after 180 minutes compared to placebo. (Frati-Munari AC et al. " Hypoglycemic effect of Opuntia streptacantha Lemaire in NIDDM. "  "Diabetes Care 11:36-6,1988)."

 

INFLAMMATION- Sports injury, Muscular inflammation

1. Bromelain  2. DMSO

Bromelain

Bromelain refers to a mixture of sulfur containing proteolytic enzymes or proteases obtained from the stem of the pineapple plant.

The standard dosage (1800-2000m.c.u.) is 125 to 450 mg. 3 times daily.

Review Article:  Bromelain was introduced as a medicinal agent in 1957, and since that time over 400 scientific papers on its therapeutic applications have appeared.  Bromelain has been reported in these studies to exert a wide variety of beneficial effects, including reducing inflammation in cases of arthritis, sports injury or trauma and preventing swelling after trauma or surgery. (Taussig S, Batki.  "Bromelain and its clinical application.  An update." " J Ethnopharmacol 22:191-203, 1988)."
