On April 11, 2018, I went with my husband, Don, to his appointment with our primary care physician, suspecting a diagnosis of diabetes. Don’s symptoms were unquenchable thirst, constant urgency to urinate, fatigue, tingling in his feet, vision issues and other indications of this disease.

The doctor conducted an A1C test that read 10.4. She was shocked and said that Don had probably been a diabetic for some time now.

After sharing my primary peritoneal cancer testimony with her, I asked her if she would be OK if we tried similar measures to see if we could get Don’s blood sugar under control. For my cancer, I had used a mind, body and spirit treatment versus chemotherapy or radiation. I had been given six months to live. That was 10 years ago. She agreed and said, “I will see you back here in three months to see how you are doing.”

We went home that day and started our program. We ate a whole-food diet, no sugar or white foods, no bread and plenty of green vegetables. With every meal he took a capsule of AIM GlucoChrom. After dinner, we would ride our bikes for four miles. Intermittent fasting became part of our routine also. Don had been using BarleyLife for a while along with some supplements, so we continued those.

The doctor wanted Don to take three prescriptions—Metformin, Lisinopril and
Lipitor—saying that diabetics die of heart disease, not diabetes. These drugs have terrible side effects, and we did not want to deal with this. Don had already overcome acid reflux and high blood pressure, so we felt we could control the diabetes too.

On July 18, we went back for the follow-up visit. To the doctor’s surprise, Don had lost 20 pounds, his blood pressure was 116/66 and his A1C was 6.4. She was shocked and said she did not ever think we could achieve this success.

My A1C was 5.5 and prior to the visit she thought I may be borderline dia­be­tic. I can say, if you put your mind to this, it can be done naturally!

Thanks, AIM, for all the resources you give us to live healthy lives!

Barley Grass Powder Benefits Type 2 Diabetics

BL Diabetes

With diabetes rising to epidemic proportions worldwide, effective ways of treating this debilitating and often deadly disease are of international importance. Natural supplements rarely receive scientific attention; however, a type 2 diabetes study published in the International Journal of Green Pharmacy (2010)1 revealed that barley grass powder “holds promise to be used as a functional food to optimise the health of diabetic subjects.”

Researchers at the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda conducted the study using capsules of barley grass powder, produced specifically for their investigation. Over 80 percent of the type 2 diabetics in the test group were either overweight or obese, factors that are associated with the increased risk of developing diabetes. In fact, current thought suggests the cause of type 2 diabetes is a high-calorie diet rich in saturated fats—mainly from animal sources of food—that promote unhealthy weight gain and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.

For two months, each individual in the test group took four capsules daily that provided 1.2 grams of barley grass powder. None of them took any other supplement or pharmaceutical medication nor did the control group of diabetics who were not taking the capsules. The results were impressive for the test group taking barley grass powder: significant lowering of their glycated hemoglobin and fasting blood sugar levels. Lowering blood sugar to healthy levels is the key to reversing diabetes and its ravaging effects.

The study also showed the barley grass powder decreased the test subjects’ bad cholesterol and increased their good cholesterol, results that help to lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, which Type 2 diabetics are prone to developing.
