From Pullman, Washington, USA:

I have been introduced to a book called "The Cure For All Diseases" by Hulda Regehr Clark, Ph.D., N.D. Seven out of 604 pages cover diabetes. The author describes diabetics as all having a common fluke parasite called eurythrema pancreaticum, found in cattle. Clark says that the parasite can only thrive and multiply with the presence of wood alcohol (methanol) which is commonly found in our food supply such as bottled water, artificial sweetener, soda pop, baby formula and powdered drinks. She states that wood alcohol is used to wash equipment in manufacturing, that it is found in both syringes and in insulin causing diabetics to worsen their condition. She also talks about Kojic acid (a food mold), and the HA virus (found in the pancreas) responsible for causing diabetes. My initial response was to throw the book away, furious that this author claims to know the cure for every disease common to man. So, now I'm asking for your opinion. Should I disregard this author altogether or apply her "cure" to my four year old daughter who has had enough of diabetes for a lifetime?


In my opinion, the right thing to do is the first thing you thought: throw the book away! Insulin dependent diabetes is an autoimmune disease with the destruction of the cells that produce insulin. The only way to treat it is the injection of insulin, nothing else.


Additional comments from Dr. Stuart Brink:

My general rule about medical "cures" including over-the-counter and herbal cures is the following: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true. I think you would be wiser to play the lottery than spend the money on this "advice." Whatever you do, please don't stop your child's insulin treatment.
