Currently hundreds of millions of people across the world are the victims of diabetes. In the United States alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that there are approximately 20 million diabetics. Potential cures and methods to reverse diabetes are showing promising results, and among them is the chemical harmine commonly found in several plants around the world. It is also the main ingredient in the psychoactive compound known as ayahuasca.
Diabetes is an autoimmune sickness which prevents the human pancreas from producing insulin. Insulin is the hormone that enables the body to receive energy from foods. Diabetes occurs when the immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. Apparently, the cause for this condition is still not quite understood, but researchers believe that genetic and environmental factors influence too. Modern day mainstream science claims there is no cure for diabetes.
Again, around 380 million people in the world suffer from types 1 and 2 diabetes. Both types are ultimately the result of insufficient functional pancreatic insulin-producing beta cells. It is actually insulin-producing beta cells where harmine manifests the most promising results.
New research study posted in the journal Nature Medicine led to interesting results. The research, funded by JDRF and the National Institutes of Health was conducted by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City. The findings of this study revealed that:
“Using three different mouse and human islet in vivo–based models, we show that harmine is able to induce beta cell proliferation, increase islet mass and improve glycemic control. These observations suggest that harmine analogs may have unique therapeutic promise for human diabetes therapy.”
After the team discovered that harmine could reproduce beta cells in a culture, they then injected human islets into diabetic mice and gave them harmine. This caused the production of beta cells, ultimately resulting in normalized blood glucose levels. Harmine had tripled the number of beta cells within the mice’s pancreas.
The study did a screen of over 100,000 potential medications, and out of all of them, only harmine caused the multiplication of human insulin-producing beta cells.
“Our results provide a large body of evidence demonstrating that the harmine drug class can make human beta cells proliferate at levels that may be relevant for diabetes treatment. While we still have a lot of work to do in improving the specificity and potency of the harmine and related compounds, we believe these results represent a key step toward more effective future treatment of diabetes.” – Senior study author Andrew Stewart, MD, Director of the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine.
Scientists believe beta cell regeneration to be the right answer and ultimate cure for diabetes, but there is still a long way to go. Apparently, their next step in the process is for to come up with drug candidates that would only target the beta cells.
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) has come up with some promising results. Namely, in 2014, a team of scientists at HSCI discovered how to produce large quantities of insulin-producing cells. They claimed that this discovery is just as large as the development of antibiotics, which (although effective) have still led to severe health consequences. Currently, stem cell-derived beta cells are being clinically tested in animal models, and researchers at the Institute are hoping for clinical trials to start very soon.
Test Subjects Reversed Their Diabetes In Just 30 Days
A documentary film titled “Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days” reveals the case study of six test subjects. This study involved people with different lifestyles and conditions but they had diabetes – five type 2, and one type 1. Each of them was taking insulin shots.
People everywhere are trying alternative solutions to achieve results equal to and sometimes even better than what is offered to them by mainstream sources like medical doctors and government-appointed experts.
We feel that it is very important for people to be informed about their options and get a fair chance to speak their thoughts. We know many diabetics who sadly are unaware of how food can improve their condition. Still, these people continue to take insulin supplements and follow mainstream practices as if it is the only way.
It is not to say that the mainstream is wrong, it is simply that people are missing out a large number of other possibly effective solutions. After all, the American Diabetes Association claims that there is no cure for diabetes, yet the aforementioned results would suggest there is another reality about diabetes.
If you’re a diabetic yourself or know people with diabetes, please share this article. Such information is crucial for all those people to overcome their health problem and live a long and healthy life.
