Type II Diabetes Case Study

I am looking for some help with type II Diabetes. I was diagnosed at the beginning of this year. So far I am able to control blood sugar with diet, no medications, but I would like more of a cure. My BS still goes fairly high when I have starchy vegetables and/or other carbs that I normally try to avoid, but sometimes the temptation is stronger than myself. ;-)

My fasting BS in the morning has normalized now, it used to always be 130-200. But it is now usually about 90-115 first thing in the morning. If I avoid carbs and eat a higher protein meal, my BS will be between 85-110, 2 hours postprandial.

The long term health complications of heart disease, eye troubles, kidney failure... scare me. I had a very hard emotional time accepting my diagnoses and was in tears most of the time out of fear, and also mad at myself, because I know my sedentary lifestyle(I hate to exercise and would rather the house work would go away, my house is never tidy), and poor dietary habits contributed to this disease and if I hadn't been so bad in my daily duties and eating habits, I might have avoided this at least until I was older.

I desire a way of life that would allow me to sit and read or work on my websites without having to worry about dinner, dishes, laundry, house cleaning...I would like to have someone else to do it all for me, but that is of course impossible and just laziness on my part.

I am about 5'5', 220lbs., 42 years old, I have lost just over 40 lbs, my weight is down from 265 at the beginning of the year. I am fair skinned with freckles, red hair.

Married with 3 children, ages 13-8. Our first pregnancy was a miscarriage, and I had a second one at the time of my Mother's death in 2000.

I am a night owl, love to stay up late and read or do research when the house is quiet, but even when I get a good nights sleep (8 or more hours), I feel unrefreshed in the morning.

My teeth seem to be falling apart, lots of cavities, due to a lack of care. I am slovenly about good hygiene. I don't like to brush my teeth and dread having to take a shower, though once I do, I like it....?!?!

I suffer from constipation, Not going regularly at all. I will go for two or three days with no movement, then I will have a day or two that I will go maybe once or twice each day then back to not going.

There is a history of colon cancer: both my parents died from complications. My father had colitis since he was about 7 or 8 years old, and my mother also suffered with constipation and became T-II diabetic in her 60's.

My hands and feet are cold in the winter, yet especially my feet will still sweat or be clammy. occasionally I have a tingling sensation in my toes, and my hands 'fall asleep' when I am typing, or driving if I don't flex my hands from time to time.

I used to get pinched nerves in my neck, but through Chiropractic care, I haven't had it for almost 20 years.

I have dandruff, and when scratched it can, but not always, become scabby.

I smoke about a pack of cigarettes a day, no regular drinking, although I will have a glass of wine on special occasions, not even once a month. I do not use any other drugs or medications regularly. I have in the past had antibiotics and use Ibuprofen for headaches. I get headaches at the nape of my neck occasionally.

I have noticed that I get hiccups on windy days or when there is a drastic/sharp change in barometric pressure.

I get frustrated and irritated easily, especially with those closest to me...Husband, children...

Do not take criticism well. and/or encouragement. For example, When I would try to quit smoking if my husband would say how proud he was of me, it would put me in a bad mood, and I would go back to smoking.

I dislike the hot and humid weather we have in the summer, it makes me very lethargic. I love the fresh crisp days of fall, low temps and low humidity. makes me feel rejuvenated.

I don't like to drink water, though now being diabetic, it is what I drink most, plus Crystal light lemonade and 2-4 cups of coffee in the morning. I used to drink Mountain Dew all the time, very little daily water, like one or two glasses per day, which I'm sure is a part of why I am diabetic...

I enjoy marital relations with my husband, but rarely obtain climax even with stimulation.

My menstruation can be very irregular: I usually only have a period every 2-3 months, although I have had ones that start and stop for as long as 6 weeks. Sometimes my periods will come every month, but not often. I am guessing this is why our children were space so far apart, 2.5-3 years apart, and we haven't had any in the last 8 years...we have never done anything to prevent conception since we both desired a large family, and because of religious beliefs we wouldn't have used anything anyway.

I have no drastic cravings or aversions to food now, although I enjoy sweets and other snack foods like chips. I also used to crave Mt Dew, and it was what I mainly drank, though not any more.

I do hope I can get some help with all this, I have read some of the info about arnica 30c and am interested to see if there would be anything else indicated for my case.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

To Sheila

I note that you have already read about my discovery of Arnica to help with Diabetes and I believe that this remedy can also help you. The potency that I now prescribe is 6c in the Wet dose and this invariably brings down the Blood Sugar level to normal, around 100 in about 12 hours when you will reduce the drugs you may be using to maintain the BS level at a comfortable level.

Arnica will also help you to QUIT smoking. Many have testified to their success in doing so with Arnica.

You will have to stop using the following:
Coffee, Mountain Dew, preserved meats -- sausages, ham bacon.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made up as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also known as Liquid Dilution.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake it hard to produce bubbles.
This is homeopathic succussion and must be done every time before a capful of the bottle which is the dose is sipped as directed.

Hello Dr Joe De livera,
After reading Sheila Case study I am requesting you to help me also. I am a male aged 51+ and I too am suffering from diabetic for the last 7 years. My doctor prescribed me metformin 850 retard 2X a day. I took it for 1 month and after reading about its side-effect I stopped it since then and went on herbal medication, but it is not doing a good job in controlling my diabetes. My fasting reading is always aroung 8-10mmol and two hrs after food is around 10-13mmol. My herbal supplments consists of fenugrek, gemnemma sylevestra, bitter mellon, cinnamon, neem, namun seed and shilajit. I take two teaspoon of this granules ten minutes before meals. I drink a minimum of 2 cups of coffee and 2 cups of tea a day. I crave for sweetmeats especially after my meals. I am a vegeterian since birth but nowadays my diet consists of chappti which is bread made of wheat flour plus cooked vegetables. My main problem is I am a lecturer and I do not have regular timing for my meals. Moerover my leg aches badly especially at night and I have to get my wife or kids to massage them. My breath from mouth and nose stinks even after rinsing and brushing my teeth about 5x a day. My inner cheeks and tounge are sore due to regular rinsing with strong mouthwash. My students sit far away from me and close their mouth when near. I also am now having digestive problem and I pass a lot(really a lot) of gas. After meals my abdomen is bloated and my stools are loose and smelly most of the time though I am not diahrheating. I pass motion only once first thing in the morning. Moreover I feel tired, weak and my mind seem to slow down from afternoon onwards. I also can get some foul smell inside my nostrils. Will Arnica6c that you recommended to Sheila also help me. Please help me. Thanking you and god bless you

To Sudharshan

Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily should bring down your Blood Sugar level by about 25% within 12 hours after 2 doses. Many patients who have used this remedy have confirmed this matter.

It is absolutely safe to use and I would appreciate if you will report your own response in 24 hours after your first dose.

You state:
'My breath from mouth and nose stinks even after rinsing and brushing my teeth about 5x a day. My inner cheeks and tounge are sore due to regular rinsing with strong mouthwash.'

Have you consulted your doctors to identify your problem?

Do not take coffee and STOP all chemicals like the Mouthwash you are using as it is obvious that they have not helped you and your problem (Halitosis?) is not in your teeth.

It is most likely due to your Diabetes which hopefully can be controlled with the Arnica.

You state:
' I also am now having digestive problem and I pass a lot(really a lot) of gas. After meals my abdomen is bloated and my stools are loose and smelly most of the time'

I believe that you also suffer from GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and the remedy is Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken 3 times daily after meals.Do not however take it for the first 3 days into your therapy for Diabetes as I wish to verify what your response is to the Arnica alone without the Nat Phos which can interfere with the curative power of Arnica on your Blood Sugar.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.
