For 40 years, studying Nutrition has been my passion, ever since I graduated from one of the world’s best Universities for it. I’ve been complimented by Registered Dieticians and offered positions as an official liason to diabetes patients. But, I have declined being in the formal establishment and have kept an open-mind and watchful eye on the whole field instead.
Consequently, my ideas are Independent, and I am only concerned with the well-being of those involved. I firmly believe that every case of Diabetes can be improved and possibly even cured, given the right internal terrain.
I believe natural therapies hold the key to success. Join me on this journey of discovery, and choose what you think will benefit you most.

I am dedicating my blog to my father, Arthur, who was the most courageous man I ever expect to know.
He was a US Marine at Guadalcanal and he was a war hero, under the most excrutiatingly difficult circumstances (he got all of his men out alive), and his own courage persisted throughout his life. At age 13, as child #3 of 4, he shared the responsibilities of being head-of-household with his Mother, after his own father died. Arthur faced diabetes “spilling sugar” sometime around his late 30′s and fended it off until his late 50′s.
He always fastidiously followed every regimen his physicians gave him, and did this while being one of the first to receive an aortic heart valve replacement, dealing with Parkinson’s (which did not respond to medication) and finally, losing both legs to diabetes complications, even though he had walked miles everyday at a gentle pace, to keep active and keep his blood sugars in normal-range (along with medication, at various times).
Arthur’s courage is my inspiration, for the last 17 years of my father’s life were full of travail, which he and my mother, Muriel, dealt with positively, assertively and with dedication and love.
Because of this, my father saw 3 of his 4 grandchildren grow up, and they all remember him (the 4th grandchild was born on his birthday, 2 years after his death — that was a great balm for us).
So, I know where conventional treatment of diabetes can lead, and therefore:-
I have vowed that no-one will have to deal with such a narrow-view as my father had to from his physicians. They did NOT know everything. They were not honest with him about that. He trusted them, and suffered for it. Conventional medicine still does not treat diabetes properly, in my opinion.
As an engineer, my father loved computers and he would be pleased if you were spared all that he went through by you connecting with my diligent data-mining and thinking on your behalf. And, I hope his spirit is proud of me. He will always be in my heart.
