The first and most important thing you can do for diabetes is to increase your magnesium intake. Magnesium has been proven over and over again to decrease the insulin resistance and to make our insulin receptors more sensitive. Various estimates show that from 60-80% of the population is getting below the recommended daily allowance of magnesium and that when this amount is raised pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome and diabetes is markedly decreased.
Dr. Sircus is advocating the use of a very low sugar, low carbohydrate diet or raw diet which has shown great strides in getting people off their diabetes medication. Along with this, its necessary to supplement with a good quality magnesium oil, like Ancient Minerals . In addition iodine, sodium bicarbonate, CBD and other protocol items have been shown in research to have significant impacts on diabetes.
