O.P. used to suffer from type 2 diabetes — but he doesn’t anymore.
His doctor told him it was hereditary. And that it was just a matter of time before he inherited the disease.
A checkup in August 2016 confirmed he had developed diabetes.
Doctors put O.P. on metformin. That’s Big Pharma’s multimillion-dollar blood sugar-lowering drug.
But it didn’t help. His blood sugar was sitting around 9 mmol/L… That’s two points ABOVE the threshold for diagnosing diabetes.
So O.P. started on the diabetic protocol I use in my clinic. And what happened next stunned his doctor.
In just two months, O.P. dropped a whopping 35 pounds and his fasting blood sugar levels plummeted to 5.5 mmol/L, which are considered normal for non-diabetics.
Here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I’ve successfully treated dozens of type 2 diabetics. First, I tell them that diabetes is NOT hereditary. Then I use a therapy based on two Nobel Prize-winning breakthroughs.
Let me explain…
In 1974, two molecular biologists earned a Nobel Prize for discovering that your body has not one — but TWO — immune systems.
Your second immune system (SIS) usually lies dormant. But when reawakened, it has the amazing ability to keep chronic disease at bay.
But there was a problem. Nobody knew how to activate it. Then, just last year, another Nobel Prize was awarded to Japanese biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi. His work revealed how to trigger this second immune system.1
Your SIS is different than your regular immune system. The immune system you’re familiar with attacks foreign invaders from “outside,” like germs, bacteria, viruses and other parasites.
But your second immune system has a different job. It involves a process called autophagy that attacks threats that come from INSIDE your body — or what I call cellular “dead weight.” This is the dead weight of damaged, dysfunctional and other unnecessary cells.
Normally, your body uses its SIS to clear out this cellular trash. That’s how you stay young and disease-free.
But as you age, you gradually lose this ability. And all this cellular dead weight piles up in your body like trash bags on garbage day.
In the pancreas, dead weight interferes with the insulin-secreting beta cells, leading to diabetes.
But your pancreas isn’t the only place where dead weight leads to disease. It affects your brain, heart, lungs, joints and virtually any organ — causing multiple conditions like heart disease, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, cancer, obesity, arthritis and chronic pain.
Your second immune system works by hunting down and attacking these dead weight cells and actually forcing them to “eat themselves.”
Then it recycles what’s left into energy. In other words, it turns the dead weight of old cellular debris into the fuel your body needs to fight chronic disease.2
Professor Ohsumi showed that, once activated, your SIS has the power to renew almost any organ in your body — including your pancreas, the source of diabetes.
That’s why my therapy worked so well on O.P. And it allowed him to escape the disease that killed his father — despite what doctors told him about his “genetic predisposition.”
I use a specific protocol to activate the second immune system and help my patients reverse chronic disease — without Big Pharma drugs. Here’s what I recommend:
Activate Your Second Immune System
You can help trigger your second immune system by using a technique called intermittent fasting — which mimics the ancient primal lifestyle of “feast and famine.”
I recommend my patients start with a safe, simple regimen that calls for an 8-hour eating window each day, followed by a 16-hour fast. Here’s how it works:
- Start your day with a 10 a.m. breakfast
- Lunch at your regular time
- Finish your dinner by 6 p.m.
- Your body gets no additional food from 6 p.m. until 10 a.m. the next day
When your body gets used to the 16-hour fast, you can move up to the 24-hour mark. You can practice one-day fasts as often as every two weeks.
Please note: A full-day fast isn’t for everyone. You should always consult with a doctor before fasting.
To Your Good Health,
