Can You Get Off Of Diabetes Medication?

Woman sitting cross-legged on a rock and looking out at placid lake at sunset.

The answer is yes, if you have type 2 diabetes and enough common sense to have excellent NORMAL HEALTH HABITS, you can get off of diabetes medication!

The following are the normal health habits you need to have if you want to get off of your diabetes mediation.

At the top of the list is a body mass index between 18 and 24. That means eat NO wheat, white potatoes, white rice, starches, carbohydrates, alcohol, wine and sugar, as well as sugar substitutes!

If you crave sweet, take a gymnema capsule, open it and put about one fifth of the contents on your tongue. You will not be able to taste sweet for several hours. Repeat as needed until you are cured of the craving.

Second, you must TRAIN YOUR BRAIN and the optimal way to do that is to practice Autogenic Training. If you ignore this or know that you will not follow through, stop reading as you are hopeless! And, no, you will not be able to get off of your diabetes medication.

Third in importance is supplements, which may include Fenugreek, Berberine, gymnema sylvestre, cinnamon, Lion’s Mane, chromium, Schizandrae, balloon flower root, licorice, astralgus, lyceum, wild yam, Solomon’s seal, mulberry, shepherd’s purse, and zinc. Of course, you will need a holistic physician to guide you in the selections that are best for you.

Fourth is physical exercise! You must move at least moderately a minimum of an hour a day. It can be walking, yoga, bouncing, biking–stationery or moving, gymnastics, weight lifting. Just MOVE!

Fifth is sleep, preferably eight hours EVERY night and NEVER less than seven.

If you are a smoker, STOP!

As with all people in today’s polluted world, you need much more of essential vitamin supplements.

You will want to make sure you have enough vitamin D 3. You will want to take 50,000 units a week if you weigh 140 pounds or more. If you weigh less than 140 pounds, you will want to take 50,000 units on the first, tenth and twentieth of the month.

To get your basic vitamins and minerals, you will want to take Shealy-Sorin Eco-Green Iron Free Essentials. If you weigh 145 pounds or less, you will take 2 daily. If your weight is above 145 pounds, you will take 4 daily.

And in order to rejuvenate your DHEA (the anti-stress hormone) naturally, you will want to take Shealy-Sorin Youth Formula.  If you weigh less than 140 pounds, you will take 2 daily. And if your weight is above 145 pounds, you will take 4 daily.

If you follow the advice above and are conscientious, you can get off of your diabetes medication.

And there is a side benefit to being conscientious. Conscientious people live longer, are healthier and make more money than less organized and less responsible individuals!

See The Longevity Project: Surprising Discoveries for Health and Long Life from the Landmark Eight Decade Study. Howard S. Friedman and Leslie Howard S. Friedman for more details about how conscientiousness can improve your life.

Personal health is by far the most essential life requirement. Without health, no amount of money or power is of any value.

Of course, there are many other useful goals, humanitarian, emotional, physical and especially spiritual! Spiritual goals can include thing like:

  • Having only one purpose in life: to help others
  • Spreading kindness
  • Practicing gratitude
  • Living faith
  • Practicing peaceful solitude
  • Setting spiritual priorities
  • Practicing Autogenic Training twice daily
  • Being tolerant
  • Setting spiritual goals
  • Setting and following optimal health goals
  • Spiritual rituals
  • Being mindful
  • Having Empathy
  • Having a spiritual mission
  • Being part of a spiritual group
  • Having and following health habits
  • Being aware that everything affects everything
  • Having awareness of every thought is a prayer
  • Being aware that every WORD is a prayer
  • Practicing SELF-HEALTH every day
  • Spreading LOVE
  • Being Conscientious, organized, Responsible
  • Making wise spiritual choices

So, can you get off of diabetes medication?

You can, if you are willing to be conscientious, spiritual, loving and kind. And if you have a health Intelligent Quotient of at least 90 because you are adhering to the normal health habits!

We cannot do it for you. In fact, no one can do it except YOU!

In case you are not yet convinced that you can get off of diabetes medication, look at the side effects of the common diabetes prescription metformin.

According to, commonly reported side effects of metformin include: 

Lactic acidosis, diarrhea, nausea, nausea and vomiting, and flatulence. 

Death, hypothermia, hypotension, and resistant arrhythmias have been reported due to metformin-associated lactic acidosis. Onset may be subtle and include nonspecific symptoms such as malaise, myalgia, respiratory distress, somnolence, and abdominal distress; laboratory abnormalities include low pH, increased anion gap and elevated blood lactate.

The risk of lactic acidosis increases with renal or hepatic impairment, aged 65 years or older, having a radiological study with contrast, surgery, or other procedures, hypoxic states, and excessive alcohol intake.

If lactic acidosis is suspected, metformin hydrochloride should be discontinued, supportive measures started in a hospital setting. Prompt hemodialysis is recommended.
