Diabetes Breakthrough Rebuilds Pancreas

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

For decades now, mainstream medicine has been treating diabetes exactly the same way.

They’ll hand you some pills or injections to control your blood sugar or manage your symptoms. But let’s face it — they’re not actually CURING anything.

But researchers from the University of Southern California may have made the biggest diabetes breakthrough in a generation.

They’ve found a way to attack diabetes at the source — your pancreas — and maybe even rebuild the organ.

And it all starts with a diet that lots of people don’t know about.

This miracle breakthrough is a form of the “fasting-mimicking diet.”

You may not have heard of that before, but it basically restricts carbs, calories and proteins and increases unsaturated fats for certain periods, which can trick your body into fasting mode (I’ll show you how to learn more about the diet in a moment).

This fasting-mimicking diet has also been linked to weight loss, lowered risk for cancer and heart disease and slowed aging.

Recently, USC scientists tested the diet’s effects on the pancreas, which can be the root cause of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes when damaged.

For the study, mice were put on the diet and monitored for several months, and the results were incredible…

The fasting-mimicking diet triggered the regeneration of beta cells in the pancreas, which help regulate the storing and release of insulin.

Even better, damaged cells were replaced with healthy, workings cells — rebuilding parts of the pancreas that weren’t functioning.

This means by simply following the fasting-mimicking diet, you could one day be able to regenerate parts of your pancreas and stop diabetes at the source!

Experts believe that pushing the body into an extreme state like fasting and then bringing it back to baseline helps to reprogram cells.

If you want to learn more about the fasting-mimicking diet, this book is a great place to start.

Live well,
