Here is a story about one pharmacist who moved away from pharmaceuticals and developed his own protocol for treating his own diabetes.
After researching several studies, especially UK Dr. Paul Thornalley’s theory of diabetes as an acute thiamine deficiency, Stuart started taking 300 mg of benfotiamine three times a day with other supplements. Benfotiamine is a fat soluble form of thiamine (vitamin B1).
He told his doctor that if it didn’t work out, he’d succumb to the doctors list of prescribed drugs, which included painkillers and statins. But that didn’t happen. Within a week, the intense foot pain was gone, and within three weeks all peripheral neuropathy sensations had ceased.
Neuropathy symptoms would return when he stopped taking the supplements, but he wasn’t suffering from the side effects of expensive drugs. Stuart states, “If you go to PubMed and enter the keywords “thiamine deficiency” and “diabetes” you will get dozens of references that describe how many symptoms of diabetes are caused by a thiamine deficiency it generates.”
