Over eight percent of the American population suffers from Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. FAIM investigates clinics around the world which implement protocols for Diabetes. Findings show nutritional protocols, diet and life style changes are effective in addressing these issues. 

Why You Should Take Your Apple Cider Vinegar at Night

While some of the amazing abilities of apple cider vinegar (ACV) are anecdotal others are corroborated by clinical studies. But how would taking “ACV” before bed help you? It has the potential to drastically improve the health and wellness of half the population.

The Connection Between Glaucoma, Alzheimer’s, and Diabetes

New research suggests it isn’t just Alzheimer’s that’s linked to diabetes and glaucoma. Less severe forms of dementia also could be a complication of diabetes. The eyes are so directly connected to the brain that many in the medical community believe they are an extension of the brain. The impact of diabetes on your eyes is now gaining even more attention. One group of researchers in India hypothesized that the eye disease glaucoma is actually diabetes of the brain.

Dr. Gordon Pedersen has put together a chronicle on the cutting edge ability of structured silver solution's ability to safely destroy bacteria, viruses and yeast. Learn the application of silver for many chronic and acute illnesses.

Hydrogen Water: Drink to Better Health

Is the effect of drinking hydrogen water too good to be true? Dr. Whitaker thought so at first. But the deeper he delved into the hundreds of scientific papers examining the effects of hydrogen therapy, also called molecular hydrogen or H2 therapy, on scores of health challenges, the more he became convinced this is a true scientific breakthrough.

Magnesium: Important in so Many Ways

Magnesium is almost as basic as air and water for healthy living. For those who are ill and magnesium deficient taking magnesium is almost like taking a breath, when one is out of air. When one combines transdermal magnesium therapy with magnesium bicarbonate water one can expect dramatic results as one would expect in an emergency room or intensive care unit when taking these medicines intravenously.

Study Links Vaccine Induced Immune Overload to Autism, Diabetes, Obesity

A new vaccine study published in Molecular and Genetic Medicine is bringing to the forefront the disturbing connection between the dramatic expansion in the quantity of routine childhood vaccines administered and a corresponding increase in inflammation-associated disorders including autism, diabetes, and obesity.

Avoid the Metformin Bandwagon

What are the preferred natural alternatives to metformin? The botanical berberine stands out as the obvious number one alternative. Berberine is safer and equal to or superior to metformin. For example, for treatment of type-2 diabetes, insulin resistance and the high lipid levels resulting from insulin resistance, berberine is equal (in blood sugar and insulin resistance regulating effect) or superior (in lowering high lipids) to metformin. For heart disease Berberine has not been reported to cause low blood sugar, vitamin B12 or folate deficiency, raise homocysteine levels, or increase the risk of heart attacks.

Innovations in Nitric Oxide Diagnostics and Therapeutics

It is well-documented that the most prevalent cardiovascular, metabolic and cognitive disorders impacting healthcare are largely the result of the loss of available nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO deficiency is the basis for endothelial dysfunction which underlies the development of these disorders that plague the population. Consequently, NO is considered the molecule that now offers the means for profoundly altering the disturbing trends in public health.

Why Women Should Stop Their Cholesterol Lowering Medication

Dr. Mark Hyman discusses a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine that found statins increase the risk of getting diabetes by 71 percent in post-menopausal women. Since diabetes is a major cause of heart disease, this study calls into question current recommendations and guidelines for women to take statins to prevent heart attacks (called primary prevention) and suggests they may do more harm than good.

The Blood Sugar Solution

The Blood Sugar Solution has a bold central goal: to address and begin to reverse a global epidemic of diabesity. It is a personal guide and plan, as well as a program for helping people get healthy together, based on functional medicine, and it is a blueprint for us to take back our health as a society.

8 Steps to Reversing Diabesity

Dr. Mark Hyman shares a comprehensive 8-step plan for overcoming diabesity in all its forms.

Fifty Percent of Americans Suffer from Silent Killer: Diabesity

Diabesity describes a continuum of disease from from optimal blood sugar balance to insulin sensitivity to full-blown diabetes. It affects 1 in 2 Americans and is the leading cause of most chronic disease in this country including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and cancer, not to mention its leading role in weight gain and obesity.

Can This Herb Completely Replace Drugs for Type-2 Diabetics?

Dr. Frank Shallenberger reports on his experience and two studies on the effects of berberine on blood sugar control and triglyceride levels and discusses berberine as an effective treatment for diabetes.

There is a Cure for Diabetes

There is a Cure for Diabetes has been an interesting collective effort of over thirty-five years of input from clients and pioneers of the live-food movement to heal diabetes naturally.

The Diabetes Epidemic

In the U.S., as well as other places around the world, the number of people living with diabetes continues to rise at an astounding rate. Our sedentary lifestyle, coupled with the typical western diet rich in sugars, bad fats and low fiber suggest that this problem will continue to grow.

Dr. Sacha Barrio is a Peruvian-American OMD trained in the United Kingdom. Successively, he received a scholarship to study in China and became apprentice to Dr. Huang Huang in Nan Jing, China. Dr. Huang uses traditional diagnosis based on body types and applies classic herbal formulas from the Shang Han Lun. Dr. Barrio also integrates his practice with Peruvian medicinal herbs which are part of the traditional Amazonian and Andean pharmacopeias.

Tree of Life Symposium with Dr. Cousens

Dr. Gabriel Cousens is challenging Conventional Medicine head-on by curing people of Diabetes, a disease considered by most as incurable. He believes that by focusing on this disease he is tackling the tip of an iceberg of a whole dysfunctional medical system. To this end, Dr. Cousens' strategy is to speak directly to the student body of medical schools. His lectures are scientific and break paradigms. Some schools have received him with open arms; others have rejected him outright. A dean of a school (that has a prestigious Complementary and Alternative Medicine program) wrote back to him: "we do not want you or anybody like you to ever speak in our school."
