Is Dr. Sarah Hallberg ‘s Diabetes Type 2 Reversal theory logical?

Many diabetes sufferers get attracted to Diabetes Type 2 Reversal proposal. We will examine the underlying logic of the Diabetes Type 2 Reversal theory.

It is noted that there’s no cure for type 2 diabetes, studies show it’s possible for some people to reverse it. Through diet changes and weight loss, you may be able to reach and hold normal blood sugar levels without medication. This doesn’t mean you’re completely cured. Type 2 diabetes is an ongoing disease.

We also know that there are many health indicators besides blood sugar levels, e.g. uric acid, cholesterol, hormone, liver fats, high blood pressure, cancer markers, many other toxicities. And the effort and purpose of diet changes as for Diabetes Type 2 Reversal are mainly to control the blood sugar levels, ignoring the rest of the health indicators. 

Isn’t it possible that diet changes help achieve optimal blood sugar level, but other negative health indicators shoot up, indicating worse health problems, possibly made worse due to diet changes? Data of such situations is seldom presented as individual medical specialists, e.g. on Diabetes Type 2 Reversal theory, prefer to take fragmented data, not holistic approach, in their scientific research.

Western medical specialists only focus on their own specialized field of study, not taking into consideration the holistic system of a human body, mind and emotion.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg is a strong advocate on Diabetes Type 2 Reversal theory. 

She says, “Fat does not impact blood insulin levels. Carbs have a high impact”. She proposes low carb, high fat, so that the body can get sufficient energy from fat.

To quote other medical scientists : “Heart disease and cancer, this nation’s two leading killers, are linked to diets high in fat, and other chronic health problems may be exacerbated by high-fat diets.” 

We can see that Dr. Sarah Hallberg is juggling with a few parameters, with the sole purpose to achieve optimal blood sugar levels. Do you not think it is dangerous? As more high fats food may create other health problems.

We commonly witness different western medical specialists, whether on different subject matters or same field of health issues, often contradict each other. Over years, some of the popular specialists’ theory is proven wrong, though already affecting many people. This really makes patients and health conscious people very very confused.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg says, “Taking medications for type 2 diabetes combats the end result, which is rising blood sugar, but does not address the root causes—insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance”.

But what gives rise to insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance? Meaning Dr. Sarah Hallberg still has not addressed the root causes.

We also witness, today Western Medicine concludes diseases like cancer, Parkinson, Autism, Dementia etc. etc. the root causes are unknown. There is no complete cure, except life long medication.

Finding the real root causes is really an unresolved mystery in western medicine and western nutrition theory.

From the above discussion, we see some illogical propositions, which are summarized as follow:

1. Among so many health indicators which are variables, different medical specialists choose a few and ignore the others for their scientific research work, giving rise to their own unique medical theory. It is a fragmentation approach, not holistic and integrated when compared with the ancient wisdom approach.

2. Western medical science could not identify root causes to health problems. Ancient wisdom always focuses on the sources of the root causes, which is their primary focus for disease treatment and health building.

What could be missing in the western medical theory, resulting in an illogical proposition?

The following is one way to explain the reasons.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg says, “Type 2 diabetes is a disease of high blood sugar. It can also be thought of as carbohydrate intolerance or insulin resistance. That means when someone with type 2 diabetes eats carbohydrates, it causes their blood sugar to rise above a healthy level.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg also says, “Everyone has a different carbohydrate tolerance. One person may be able to eat a carb-heavy diet with no problem, and another may get blood sugar spikes and gain weight from eating very few carbohydrates.”

This implies different persons have different body systems, which is called Body Constituents (体质) as per the ancient wisdom. 

This is an important matter, the Body Constituents, which the western science does not investigate further. Different Body Constituents imply different people’s body systems having their organs functionalities working differently, some more efficiently or less efficiently.

Hence some people can consume high carbs foods without diabetes problems, others with low carb food intake have serious diabetes problems.

Examples of organs-functionalities like Spleen / Stomach for digestion of foods, Small Intestines for absorption of digested nutrients, Large Intestines, Kidneys / Bladder system for waste and toxin excretion. All these functionalities must work harmoniously with each other.

For digested foods to be converted to blood sugar and glucose, with the insulin production to achieve optimal blood sugar levels required the coordinated efforts of all the organs functionalities. 

Can you imagine a person with severe excretion problems, not able to pass stools and urine, that the person can have optimal production of insulin?

Surely not!

Can you imagine a person in constant stress, worries and anxiety, thus affecting the food digestion process, can have optimal production of insulin?

Surely not!

Indeed there are so many factors that affect optimal production of insulin levels. This implies all organ functionalities must work properly and well coordinated with each other. It is not just an issue of more or less carbs or fats.

Then out of balanced functioning of all organs are the real root causes to sickness, diseases or imbalanced body systems. That is the primary focus of ancient wisdom. 

This is what is meant by total holistic and integrated systems of the ancient wisdom.

Western Nutrition Theory using the breakdown component theory to address food categories, i.e. carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, water etc.

Ancient wisdom Food Therapy theory works very differently. Food Therapy addresses the property of wholesome food, e.g. potato, rice, chicken meat, vegetable, that should nourish the organs functionalities. That is, what food can help lungs to function better, or Liver to function better. What food in excess can harm the heart. What foods for blood deficiency etc.

Hence two persons with Diabetes Type 2, each may have different Body Constituents, ie.. different organs functionalities not operating optimally, then Food Therapy is different for each of them.

I hope this discussion triggers some interest and curiosity in you, wanting to know more about Ancient Wisdom for Today Well Being.
