Chromium and Vanadium Supplements

Hello to all of the Healthy family, I started Monday 3/12/2018 with 3 drops in 6 ounces of DISTILLED WATER 3 times on the FIRST day and I feel much better after just 3 days. No more diabetes pain in my arms and shoulders. A1C dropping with each drink. I am living proof HP works, I'm starting my wife and daughters on it next week because I have more problems than they do and I wanted to see if woks or not. Two thumbs up is what I'm giving it.

Hi Mark...There was some major research breakthroughs on diabetes and blood sugar problems in the 1950s. This research has been successfully surpressed for decades. What they found was that both vanadium and chromium, as essential trace minerals in your diet, are necessary to maintain proper insulin sensitivity, which means that both these minerals act together with insulin to help escort the glucose from the blood into the cells. If there is a lack of chromium in the diet and too much unmanaged sugar in the blood longterm then this will cause serious peripheral blood flow problems and heart problems.

The research I read showed that when people who had pre-diabetes or diabetes conditions took either chromium or vanadium then they were either outright cured or, at least, were able to greatly reduced their diabetes meds.

Clinical studies on chromium picolinate supplementation in diabetes mellitus--a review.

The chromium picolinate dosage recommended by The US Institute of Medicine is only 25 to 30 mcg per day which is way too small. According to the successful older research, men can safely take up to 2000 mcg of chromium per day whereas women must take no more than 1000 mcgs per day.

Since you also have constant high blood sugar(ie you have insulin sensitivity issues) which is dangerous, I would recommend that you take the above protocol. Take 1000 mcg chromium per day with meals. I would also take Chanca piedra tea or Chanc piedra extract (500mg) twice a day which will also help to balance your blood minerals properly.

As a matter of interest, I've managed to lose alot of weight in the last year without having to exercise vigorously. I was 190 lbs and have dropped my weight down to below 170 lbs with little effort. The herbs I was taking which had the best weight-loss effect were milk thistle (500 mgs once a day after a meal), alpha lipoic acid (600mgs/day), chromium (800 mcgs once a day after a meal), resveratrol (150mgs - japanese knotweed form as recommended by John Buhner) and B100 complex once every 3 days taken with a meal. So don't be too surprised if you start losing some weight when you start taking the chromium.

EC: For those who don't know much about Vanadium,

https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-749/vanadium

Vanadium is a mineral. It was named for the Norse goddess of beauty, Vanadis, because of its beautiful colors... 

Vanadium is used for treating prediabetes and diabetes, low blood sugar, high cholesterol, heart disease, tuberculosis, syphilis, a form of "tired blood" (anemia), and water retention (edema); for improving athletic performance in weight training; and for preventing cancer.


Dietary Changes

The quickest way to heal type II diabetes is fasting but this is rather inconvenient and demanding if you have a full- time job. Do this instead: eat only one full meal a day, during lunchtime. For breakfast and evening, eat just half a grapefruit. If you're taking prescribed medicines, check that they do not interact with grapefruit. Gliptins can and do cross-react. If, in the evening, you experience hunger pangs and are not able to withstand them, eat a boiled egg. Within a few days, your blood glucose will drop.

I dropped a full 54 mg/dl within two days and about 105 mg/dl a week later. Aim to go on this restrictive diet for a minimum of 8 weeks, but 12 weeks is better. This will help the body break the vicious hyperglycemia cycle/circle.

For lunch I cooked cracked emmer wheat - boiled. Add a range of vegs - carrot, kale, cabbage, beet, jicama, radish (your choice of veg) + half a chicken burger, halfway during the simmering stage - roughly 15 min after initial boiling. When done, drizzle extra virgin olive oil + 1 tbsp of good- quality sesame oil and/or walnut oil over the boiled wheat. You can additionally top the cooked wheat with sauerkraut, kimchi or some other fermented foods like natto.

Do not use ordinary, plain wheat. Spelt, einkorn, khorasan (kamut) or einkorn can also be used in place of emmer wheat. These 4 wheat types have not been genetically modified unlike the GMO franken wheat. You can add a cube of veg or chicken stock and/or 2 tbsp of soy sauce during the simmering stage. If tartary buckwheat is available, try half tartary buckwheat and half ancient wheat. Tartary buckwheat is a very good diabetic food - it's capable of controlling / eradicating the 3Ds or demons: high blood pressure, high blood glucose, high triglycerides. Tartary BW isn't the same as the ordinary buckwheat. It is also more pricey. After doing the diet for a few days, I was surprised to find that the bathroom began to smell terribly chemical. Apparently, the body started to flush out the spent metformin and clamide that had been accumulating in the system. I believe this was partly due to the grapefruit, which by the way, can lower blood glucose as well.


Kefir

Step-by-step Procedures To Cure Diabetes Type II

The bad bacteria responsible for Diabetes Type II is : Staphylococcus Aureus (S. Aureus). The probiotic bacteria ( also called Friendly Bacteria) "L. Casei" can eliminate this bad bacteria. One will become Diabetes Type II if there is no sufficient quantity of L. Casei in ones digestive system to kill this bad bacteria. Only way to cure Diabetes Type II is to increase the count of L. Casei in the digestive system.

We bought milk kefir starter (Brand - Mr and Mrs Kefir) from Amazon.com. Milk Kefir is a Fermented Probiotic Food and it contains L. Casei. One can use any other starter as long as it contains L.Casei. We used 12-hour fermented fresh kefir for this cure. We used ordinary cow milk at room temperature for fermentation. The 12-hour fermented Kefir looks similar to yogurt and there is no need to do liquid-solid separation. It is advisable to do the following procedures under the supervision of a doctor :

1) Take one cup (100 cc) of ordinary cow milk at room temperature and add one teaspoon of Kefir to start the fermentation at night.

2) Next day morning, one cup of 12-hour fermented Kefir is available. Save about one teaspoon of Kefir for next fermentation and save it in the middle section of refrigerator. Take the remaining one cup of Kefir in the morning on empty stomach.

3) Follow Step 1 And Step 2 for about 8 weeks.

4) Then check for the bad bacteria S. Aureus in the stool as well as in the blood in a Lab. If there is no S. Aureus in both, the person is cured. If there is some S. Aureus either in the stool or in the blood, then follow steps 1 and 2 for another 4 weeks. Then go to the beginning of this step 4.

If a milk kefir starter is not available in your area but Mung Bean is available, one can use Mung Bean soaked fermented water to cure Diabetes Type II. Mung Bean soaked fermented water also contains L. Casei. One can follow instructions under the tittle " Mung Bean soaked Fermented water for Diabetes Type II" .

Best Wishes P. Raghavan.

Four people (diabetic - 2) in my town took one cup of kefir on empty stomach in the morning for 8 weeks. They are now free of this problem. Has any one tried this?
