Controlling Diabetes Naturally
by Polly Griffin
In my family there were seven children. Six had diabetes!!
With such statistics, it would be easy to think that genetics plays a part in the disease and that there is nothing we can do about it except take pills or insulin. Well, this article is about how I am controlling my diabetes by natural means. I want to share what I have learned with my friends with the hope that they will pass it on to their friends, and their friends will pass it on to their friends etc. until the entire world can learn that there is hope in controlling this terrible health problem.
In 1969, I was having severe hypoglycemic attacks. The internist ordered a five-hour glucose tolerance test. He told me that the results showed that I had borderline diabetes. He said I could control it with my diet.
The hypoglycemic attacks were only one of my symptoms. At that time, I was also having severe problems with my eyes (continuous spasms) and inner ear problems (dizziness). The opthamologist said I had the same symptoms as someone with an optic nerve injury. He said he could do surgery on the eye muscles, but usually the results made them worse and he said it would be best to leave them alone. He told me to continue doing the eye exercises that another doctor had started and learn to live with the problem.
When I was unable to find help, my two sisters, Dorothy and Ann, encouraged me to go to a Chiropractor. What I learned there was totally different from what I knew as a registered nurse. I decided at that time to write a book to tell of my experience. I called the book, THE HIDDEN LIGHT. It is posted on the WORKERS FOR JESUS website so everyone desiring to read it has access to it.
In 1975 I made a health discovery that I named the EDEUS HEALTH METHOD. It is so simple and so great that I believe it to be a gift from God to all mankind and named it accordingly. "Edeus" is derived from the latin words "e" and "deus" which means "from God". This method kept me in relative good health until 1999.
At this time my health changed dramatically. My spine started shifting, and I had many nerves involved. I had been busy working at the Workers For Jesus North End Mission doing painting, carpentry work, etc. My spine became very active. Many of my old health problems were reactivated. I was told again that I had borderline diabetes. I was put on a diabetic pill to control it.
I was never happy with taking the pill. It seemed that my blood sugar was always either too high or too low.
One day I had a tremendous hypoglycemic spell. It was so uncomfortable and scary that I decided then and there that I would control my diabetes with natural means.
I was already using the Edeus Health Method and going to a Chiropractor to get myself balanced out after those large spinal movements. Now, I needed to get in control of my diet.
I started keeping a record of what I ate and how my blood sugar reacted to it. If it raised my blood sugar to a high level I either eliminated it from my diet or reduced the amount I ate. Gradually my blood sugar regained a normal reading.
I haven't taken another diabetic pill since that bad reaction. I keep a daily record of my blood sugar. So far, I haven't needed to. It takes will power to stay on any diet. To motivate me I need only to think of how badly I felt while having that reaction.
As time goes by and my body responds to the Edeus Health Method and to the Chiropractic adjustments I find that I am able to eat more and more without so many diet restriction.
THE CAUSE OF DIABETES:
BASED UPON MY KNOWLEDGE OF THE BODY AND MY EXPERIENCES WITH DIABETES, I BELIEVE THE MAJOR CAUSE OF DIABETES IS AN ABNORMAL BODY STRUCTURE IMPINGING THE NERVES LEADING TO THE PANCREAS AND THE OPTIC NERVE CREATING A STRICTURE ON THE LONG NECK LEADING TO THE PITUITARY GLAND. TO CORRECT THESE PROBLEMS, NORMAL BODY STRUCTURE MUST BE OBTAINED.
