What did the ancient Greeks know about diabetes?

The official term for this disease is ‘diabetes mellitus.’

‘Diabetes’ comes to us from the Greek. The word means ‘to siphon.’

Etymologically, it couples with the Latin word ‘mellitus,’ meaning ‘sweet.’


This refers to how the disease almost literally siphons sugars out of our bodies.

How it’s caused by overeating sugar.

Patients get overloaded and have to pass their sugars through urination.

In fact, a couple of hundred years ago, doctors tested their patients by drinking their urine.

Here’s another medical term for you: diabetic polyneuropathy.

This results when sugar gets inside the body’s peripheral nerves and swells them so they compress against their channels and shut down, causing a lack of sensation.

There are some ways to address this.

But the method I do NOT address is the current fad of amputating a diabetic patient’s lower extremities.

Instead, I’d get them to cut out sugar from their diets.

As in all sugar.

Yes, even fruit.

I know how controversial this may sound, but I’ve seen this work time and again.

Modern society has been fed a big lie.

That lie is that sugar in our diets is lovely.

It’s not.

Our bodies were never designed to ingest and process so much sugar.

Sugar destroys our nerves, which in turn creates plenty of disorders, most of which are preventable.

I’ve spent my life researching this topic and helping cure patients with various chronic disorders using these methods.

If you’re interested in knowing more, it’s one of my missions in life to explain the biochemistry behind this phenomenon and hopefully save your life.
