Despite BILLIONS of dollars being spent on pharmaceutical research, diabetes rates continue to rise. Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes are increasing at epidemic rates.
There are more than 70 different diabetes drugs being prescribed in the U.S. alone – and NONE address the root causes or stop the progression of the disease. Yes, they likely help to slow ones’ demise and delay diabetic-related complications, but we can prevent and reverse most cases of type 2 diabetes (even without medications), we just need the tools to know what to do.
Blood sugar regulation is an essential aspect of health and overall wellness, and we know it can mean the difference between being fat or slim—but it also can mean the difference between life and death. Poor blood sugar control, in addition to ultimately leading to diabetes, is also the #1 risk factor for developing dementia and heart disease. Unhealthy blood sugar levels also lead to obesity, fatty liver disease, kidney disease, and cancer.
30 million people currently have diabetes, and 95% of those are type 2 diabetics, which is largely related to lifestyle choices. Nearly all of these people can reverse their type 2 diabetes with appropriate changes.
Another 86 million people have pre-diabetes, also called insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome, and are at risk for all the same problems as those with diabetes.
Sadly, many American medical groups have coined the phrase—“You Can’t Cure Diabetes, You Can Only Manage It, with the Help of Your Physician”. The reality is that this slogan just isn’t true, and perhaps worse, it encourages people to be falsely dependent on prescription medications. These medications are not necessarily harmful but they do often come with annoying side effects. My goal is to help people restore normal blood sugar control so that they don’t need these medications, and they feel better at the same time. It is time for a badly needed paradigm shift.
I say it’s time to claim that people can cure type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes; millions of people just need to be shown how.
I have personally helped thousands of patients, book readers, and online followers to reverse type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. I have helped them transition from having multiple medical problems, to be being medication-free with normal blood sugar control, feeling dramatically better, with more energy, sharper brain function, and better quality of life. And they have been able to maintain normal blood sugar control for years, some for more than a decade.
I don’t think of abnormal blood sugar control as a disease in and of itself, because it’s not. It is, however, a combination of inappropriate lifestyle choices that clash with our individual genetic makeup. Many people have a greater genetic risk of developing type 2 diabetes when they follow the SAD Standard American Diet than others do (while ironically, these same genes would probably help them survive famine).
To discover details on what you can do for yourself and your loved ones, register for The Diabetes Summit 2018, I will be speaking at this summit on Friday, April 27th, 2018.
Your host for The Diabetes Summit 2018, is Dr. Brian Mowll. For several years, he has been my friend and colleague, and over the last 20 years, he has helped thousands of people with diabetes, pre-diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
During this summit, you’ll hear my interview with Dr. Mowll and you’ll hear from many other experts in the field as well. Dr. Mowll will also share his functional medicine and personalized, lifestyle-based approach to help you regain control of blood sugar, heal complications and health problems, and reverse the course of diabetes.
If you’re struggling with metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, join us to learn about:
- The root causes of diabetes and blood sugar problems
- The impact of abnormal blood sugar control on your brain, gut, immune system, heart, hormones, and body weight
- Natural solutions to underlying imbalances
- Emerging research on environmental toxins, EMFs, and other factors
- How to protect your heart, kidneys, eyes, brain and sexual function
- And much more!
The Diabetes Summit 2018 is online and free from April 23-30, 2018!
I’ll see you online at this educational event!
I wish you the best of health!

What if we are type 1 diabetics? Will this series help?
As you know, type 1 diabetes is totally different from type 2 diabetes. Yet, many type 1 diabetes eventually also develop insulin resistance and essentially they also get type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance makes controlling your type 1 diabetes much more complicated and difficult.
So although as a type 1 diabetic you have to do some things differently, such as giving insulin and monitoring blood sugar levels, the information for type 2 diabetes will also be of high value to you. And the better you do at preventing insulin resistance, the easier it is for you to control your type 1 diabetes.
Regarding summits, typically I agree with 70-80% of the information given during a summit, clearly not everything. I get invited to speak and share my opinions, and other experts share their opinions. Even though I don’t always agree with everything said, I still feel it is a good opportunity for you to hear various points of view and I welcome that kind of lively discussion.

You saved my life and I am forever grateful!!!!!!!!
Dear Dr. Masley, I receive your newsletter and do read them all. I have your Heart Tune-Up book and cook some of your recipes. There is just one thing, I live north of North Dakota, our growing season is very short, needless to say, fresh organic vegetables are hard to come by and what is in stores is not really fresh, because the prices are to high for us average people. Grass fed butter, 1/2 lb cost $12.99 . Of course there is no grass fed meat available during winter. I do buy what I can afford organic, not all of the dirty dozen, it is just to expensive. I buy meat free of hormones, antibiotics, etc..
also eggs and milk.
For a lot of people it is just not possible to eat so healthy and clean .
I appreciate your suggestion.
Please keep in mind that you can buy frozen food year round, including fruits, veggies, meat, and poultry. It is less expensive, and convenient!

Processed foods are being loaded with addictive ingredients such
as Refined Sugar (more addictive than cocaine), Sodium and
low grade Fat/Oil! The only answer is to consume Fresh Fruits,
Veggies, Nuts, Seeds, Beans made without sodium and fresh meat
like Chicken. It seems to me that what is really happening is over population control
thru the use of food. By going fresh and not consuming processed
foods you eliminate many harmful chem’s and addictive ingredients.
Until we change this anything offered is really a band aide, rather than
Yes, I completely agree that we should avoid processed foods. But I am not against a moderate amount of salt. If you don’t have heart failure, bone loss, or high blood pressure (and only 1/3 to 1/2 of people with high BP are very salt sensitive), I think modest salt is fine. You are correct that some foods are loaded with salt and that is just not necessary.
