We show you tried-and-tested, real strategies to reverse Type 2 diabetes, with research studies to back them up, even if you are on heavy doses of diabetes medication. It's hard to believe, but we have been so brainwashed into believing it is incurable that we do not think it is possible. This is without using Ceylon Cinnamon, since the FDA bans us from even discussing it.
Avoid most of the advice from the American Diabetes Association, as they are all funded by the biggest drug companies, as listed here. Most medical research is also influenced by Big Pharma, as evidenced by this Washington Post Article. They are simply in the business of keeping you just alive to fleece your wallet.
The problem for most people, we find, is that it is hard to get rid of decades-long bad eating habits. After all, it took decades of practice to get your body to run on sugar and high carbs. Your body is so hooked on bad food that it will fight you like a devil has possessed you. But a slow, steady approach will cure it within a year. Here's how to do it.
Follow the Keto diet
- this is a radical diet involving a ratio of 70% fat, 20% protein, and 10% carbs for each. Originally used as a post-cancer treatment, it is now gaining wide popularity. It is very tough to do, as your body has to be keto-adapted. Watch this video
from Dr. Berg which really explains it very well. Contrary to popular belief, a low-fat diet will not cure diabetes. On the other hand a good quality high fat will eliminate your diabetes by reducing your carb addictions and controlling your blood sugar levels. But remember, fats have high calories, so stick to the amount of fat you need.. We give you detailed weight loss instructions here.
- According to Dr. Jason Fung's new book, "The Diabetes Code" (Amazon
), intermittent fasting is one of the best ways to reverse type 2 diabetes. If you are prediabetic or a type 2 diabetic, you must get this book. It will save you.
Every time we eat, we spike insulin. The idea is to reduce this incidence of insulin spikes by eating only a few times a day within a set period. For example, a 20:4 fasting technique involves fasting for twenty hours and eating within the next 4-hour window. Fasting is not a caloric reduction and is proven to be safe.

Make fresh food - You should throw out all your packaged food with three or more ingredients. This is probably the hardest to do. It will take some practice to make fresh food every day, but it is far tastier and healthier. We think a traditional Japanese diet or Mediterranean diet with olives is great. Avoid cereals like the plague, and you can have dinner-type meals like soup, stews, or chicken for breakfast
Get rid of all supplements
- Like drugs virtually all forms of supplements contain all manner of additives. And they are corrosive on your stomach lining. And some like Omega 3 according to this Healthline article
, can raise blood sugar levels. In some ways, supplements are even worse than medication. We list dangers of Cinnamon supplement here
, which applies to most supplements. Spend the money on real food.
- There is evidence that people with diabetes or weight issues lack certain bacteria or even have bad bacteria. Different types of pickles (Kimchi, Sauerkraut, lime, etc.) will help you populate your gut with good bacteria. Eat this 1-2 times per week. We are not fans of commercial probiotics. Pickles are a better source of good bacteria, can be homemade, and are much cheaper. However you must also feed the good bacteria with plenty of fiber fespecially from vegetables especially dark leafy green vegetables which is their food of choice. Otherwise they die off.

Cut the sugar
- That includes honey and fruits, which are sugar. All indications are that sugar is more addictive than cocaine. Emerging evidence suggests sugar is the major cause of cholesterol, brain illnesses like Alzheimer's/ADHD/Parkinson's, wrinkles on your face, Candida overpopulation, toenail fungus, and cancer. It seems like a heavy price to pay for having something sweet even occasionally. Watch this documentary on sugar.
Avoid the Dairy - Considering that nearly 70% of the world is lactose intolerant, it is a good idea to avoid dairy. At the end of the day, dairy products have a lot of sugar. US dairy products are some of the worst products ever designed. If you really crave milk products, make sure they come from high-quality grass-fed cows and consume them in moderation.
Natural Herbs and Spices - While we cannot discuss cinnamon, other spices like turmeric, cloves, oregano, rosemary, curry leaves, garlic, and ginger can help lower your blood sugar levels to some extent. It's important to incorporate these herbs and spices in moderation into your meals, rather than using excessive amounts. It's worth noting that turmeric contains an active oxalate that can harm your liver if consumed in excess. So, try to limit your consumption to no more than 1/2 teaspoon twice a week per meal. Additionally, Ceylon cinnamon is an excellent choice to add flavor to your dishes, such as meats, smoothies, soups, and stews, creating a complex and enjoyable taste experience.
Moderate exercise - Regular exercise is known to regulate blood sugar levels, but it's important to avoid repeating the same exercise patterns. If you do the same routine repeatedly, your body will become more efficient, and the exercise will become less effective. Instead, try exercising on different days of the week, and change up the types of activities you do. Mix it up by swimming, weight lifting, dancing, or playing a sport to keep things interesting and effective. Additionally, consider taking a break from exercise every once in a while to prevent your body from adapting to the routine.
- There is increasing evidence lack of proper sleep increases your risk of diabetes. This research study
showed that the risk of diabetes is lower for those who got between 7-8 hours of sleep.
