Diabetics and Chiropractic according to Dr Harte, Marin Chiropractor

Should diabetics be under chiropractic care? You betcha! Does diabetes have anything to do with back pain? No.

Diabetes? What is referred to commonly as diabetes is more properly called diabetes mellitus, as opposed ti diabetes insipidus, which is a disorder of the pituitary primarily. We will concern ourselves here with diabetes mellitus. Of that, there are two types, Type I, previously known as juvenile diabetes, and Type II, previously known as adult onset diabetes. Let's focus on Type II.

This is a low-functioning of the blood sugar-regulating portion of the pancreas, the Islets of Langerhans. There is not enough insulin produced, so that the level of blood glucose is not adequately controlled. A basic piece of metabolism is out of whack. Diabetes effects the circulatory system, the liver the adrenals, specifically, even disturbing metabolism down to the cellular level. It is considered one of the major killers. It can lead to blindness or loss of lower limbs. I could say that it was the disease that took my father at an early age, but his death was really due to the medical treatment of his diabetes. For sure, he is not the only one.

The medical answer to diabetes? They prescribe drugs to beat the weakened pancreas into producing more insulin, which, of course, weakens it further. The latest diabetes "blockbuster" drug, Avandia, after killing thousands by heart attack and heart disease, is now in the hands of the lawyers. Is the diabetes ever fixed, cured, healed? No. Diabetics are instructed "to live with it." This is typical medical Outside-in thinking. They, the M.D.'s, will treat you (or rather your disease) from the outside, in, with drugs, in. There is no restoration or improvement in the specific function (blood sugar regulation), nor generally, in health. There is no getting to the cause; consequently, there is no correcting of the cause.

Chiropractic comes from a totally different mindset than Medicine. While Medicine is stuck in its crude, medieval concept of Outside-in, Chiropractic understands that Health... Life... comes from Above-down, Inside-out. Your G-d-given Innate Intelligence runs your body, including your pancreas. When there is interference to this running (through your nervous system) via Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), dis-ease, a lack of proper function occurs. This allows actual disease to develop.

If there is interference to the pancreas, diabetes can occur. If that subluxation is adjusted, then healing can occur. Above-down, Inside-out.

I have had many people begin care with diabetes, and then be able to throw away their medication. I didn't treat the diabetes. I remove interference, and get out of the way.
