For diabetes: iodine, copper, potassium, B1, B12, chromium and vanadium.
Iodine might be the strongest cure. In the research at optimox.com, 50% of people put on 50 mg of iodine per day weaned themselves off of insulin with no instructions.
Proof of iodine curing diabetes:
“We since have done a study of twelve diabetics and in six cases we were able to wean all of these patients off of medications for their diabetes and were able to maintain a hemoglobin A1C of less than 5.8 with the average random blood sugar of less than 100. To this date these patients continue to have excellent control of their Type II diabetes. The range of daily iodine intake was from 50 mg to 100 mg per day. All diabetic patients were able to lower the total amount of medications necessary to control their diabetes. “
There is more evidence for iodine than the others, but they are all good:
Copper is also good for diabetes, and this is in my book, The Copper Revolution.
Diabetes & Hypertension (high blood pressure):
“A number of disease conditions, including diabetes and hypertension, are associated with low extrahepatic-tissue copper concentrations.”
In my continuing research since the publication of the book, I have found that potassium and B12 do many of the same things as copper, including that both are good for diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity!
Chromium and Vanadium have long been known to “help” diabetes, and/or/but these are little-known and little-discussed minerals.
Other things good for diabetes: Fasting. Exercise. Or experiment with combining both to lower blood sugar.
So, diabetes is, of course, a lifestyle disease, too. And perhaps one of toxicity, because copper and iodine are such great detoxers.
Cinnamon also helps.
I would add, of course, the co-factors on our protocols: zinc, Vitamin C, selenium. All three help make metallothioneins, which detox an array of toxins that wreck metabolic functioning.
Vitamin B1 is also good for diabetes.
Melatonin is also good for diabetes.
Melatonin: new insights on its therapeutic properties in diabetic complications
However, I do not think that taking melatonin supplements is worth it, nor necessary, because if you artificially take the hormone melatonin, the body adjusts, and makes less.
The pineal gland makes metatonin. The pineal gland is often calcified with fluoride. The solutions are to decalcify the soft tissues, increase bone density, and to detox fluoride.
So, to decalcify and de fluoridate the pineal gland:
Copper, Boron, Magnesium, Potassium, Silica, Vitamin K, Niacin, B12, and other B vitamins and Iodine.
