Diabetes Type 1 - cause and treatment


What is Diabetes?

A chronic condition affecting a large number of people, where there is a problem in the glucose (or sugar) processing in the body, resulting in a high sugar blood level. The disease affects more than 400 million1 people worldwide and can result to up to 5 million deaths per year2.

What are the types of Diabetes?

3 types of diabetes exist:

1. Type I: which results from a problem in the cells that secrete Insulin (which is the hormone regulating blood sugar) that are present in the pancreas, and therefore the level of Insulin is decreased resulting in high blood sugar level3.

2. Type II: Which results from a problem in the receptors of Insulin in the cells, meaning that the level of Insulin is normal, but the cells don’t use Insulin properly and that also results in elevated blood sugar level4.

3. Gestational Diabetes: This occurs during pregnancy, but is usually temporary and resolves by itself after the baby is born.

What causes type 1 diabetes?

As mentioned before, the problem with Type I diabetes is the Pancreas itself, which fails to secrete the proper levels of Insulin. The exact cause is not yet clear, but a few theories exist:

a. Genetic: Where the risk of developing diabetes for a child if the father has Diabetes is 5%, and 8% if the sibling has it5, that increases to 50% if they are twins6.

b. Environmental factors: A study that was conducted in Europe suggests the fact that there is different affection rates in different areas, that can reach up to 10 times in some countries compared to others7.

c. Diabetogenic triggers: Some theories suggest the effect of some triggers on not only developing, but worsening the condition. These include viruses such as Cytomegalovirus, Coxsackie B virus, Epstein-Barr virus and even Rota and Rubella viruses8. Some chemicals were also attributed to destroying the pancreatic cells resulting in Diabetes Type I, such as Vacor (a rodent poison) and Zanosar (present in some plastics)9.

What are the signs and symptoms of type I diabetes?

Classical symptoms include excessive urination, dry mouth and continuous thirst, increased hunger and weight loss3. More severe presentation of Type I Diabetes is called diabetic ketoacidosis, which presents as dry skin, rapid breathing, drowsiness, abdominal pain and vomiting, and can be fatal if not managed properly10.
Some people with Diabetes Type I also suffer from clinical depression11. Complications of Type I diabetes arise with poor control, the most serious of which is retinopathy (blindness), liver failure and ultimately death12.

Treatment according to the western medicine tradition

Control of type 1 Diabetes is through Insulin injections, to compensate for the low Insulin levels. The injections are taken daily, and in some cases more than once a day.
Some experimental treatments now exist, such as stem cells to regrow the missing Pancreatic cells, and some types of vaccines.

Treatment according to the natural medicine tradition

As you can imagine, living with daily injections can be really annoying, and submitting to experimental treatments is risky to say the least. We can help you develop the best coping mechanism, so that you can live happily and safely with this chronic condition.

DisorderFree’s solution

At we support you by re-powering your immune-system. For this we develop the best Natural Medicine solution, a medication personalized specifically for your needs. We look to the self-healing power from the body and find out where the immune system needs support and more power. When the immune system can’t handle the viruses, bacteria parasites, fungi, toxic substances etc anymore, you lose energy in your cells and your body switch from the living modus to the surviving modus.

In most situations when the immune system uses your free energy you feel more tired and less powerful. In the natural medicine tradition we look to the self-healing capacity of the body from a holistic view and we use only the best working ingredients to get you healthy again. This means that we look for the underlying root cause (physical, mental and food) instead of symptoms. Real-life evidence show that cleaning the body helps to re-powering the self-healing capacity of the body.

How do we support you?

We support you with the physical part of the medication. This means that we develop the best possible Personalized Natural Medicine recipe and herbal formula for your situation. This herbal formula supports your immune-system to clean the blood system, organs and tissues and lymphatic system from viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, toxic substances etc.

To develop a Personalized Natural Medicine recipe and produce the herbal formula we need some information from you. After receiving your information, several days later you receive the herbal formula and can start the treatment. During the medication period your immune system clean your body from viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, toxic substances etc.

When the body is clean it can recover and the new cells can be healthy. The total natural treatment is in 3 steps: Step 1: cleaning the blood system (2 months)
Step 2: cleaning the organs and tissues (2 months)
Step 3: cleaning the lymphatic system (2 months)

When the blood is clean you feel more power/energy in your body. The re-powering of your body increase during step 2 and 3 when you clean your organs/tissues and lymphatic system.
