(NaturalNews) Of course, the treatments referred to are those of mainstream medicine, the pushers of toxic pharmaceuticals. As poet/physician Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., once said, "If we doctors threw all our medicines into the sea, it would be that much better for our patients and that much worse for the fishes." It seems a handful of medical experts are catching onto this a little regarding diabetes type 2.

Holmes' quote doesn't mean that one should just keep on keeping on with one's bad lifestyle habits that created diabetes in the first place. There's a more natural approach involving better dietary choices than taking prescribed Big Pharma drugs.

Now we have a recent study, though not as dramatic and more conservative than Dr. Holmes' suggestion, that does advise against burdening most type 2 diabetics with prescription drugs, even insulin, to create more risks than solutions.

The study, conducted jointly by the University of Michigan (U-M) Health System, the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System and University College London (UCL), was published in JAMA Internal Medicine June 30, 2014, under the title "Effect of Patients' Risks and Preferences on Health Gains With Plasma Glucose Level Lowering in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus."

Sandeep Vijan, MD, professor of internal medicine at the U-M Medical School, stated, "If you're a patient with fairly low complication risks, but are experiencing symptoms from low blood sugar, gaining weight or find frequent insulin shots to be disruptive to your daily life, then the drugs are doing more harm than good."

John S. Yudkin, emeritus professor of medicine at UCL and co-author of the recent study, added, "Ultimately, the aim of a treatment is not to lower blood sugar for its own sake but to prevent debilitating or deadly complications. If the risk of these complications is suitably low and the burden of treatment correspondingly high, treatment will do more harm than good. The balance between the two can never be defined by a simple figure like blood sugar level."

The study contained the usual conservative approach to avoid offending the American Medical Association or Big Pharma by explaining how the risks trumped benefits mostly among those over age 50, while some do benefit from pharmaceuticals to lower blood sugar.

But the fact is that relying totally on pharmaceuticals to rid symptoms of obesity, metabolic disorders and high blood sugar is just not the way to go for most.

Though advising caution on prescribing pharmaceuticals for diabetes 2, there was no mention of lifestyle and food choices as the way to go for ridding diabetes 2 or its early stage of metabolic disorder syndrome.

The way to go for ridding diabetes 2 and metabolic disorder syndrome or prediabetes

Mike Adams' personal bad health to perfect health story impressed this author a few years ago. He was at the doorstep of diabetes with prediabetes before he became the Health Ranger. He had achieved success as a computer programmer specializing in internet services at the expense of his health.

Overweight with low energy and suffering from the effects of high blood sugar, Mike undertook the task of reading volumes of alternative health healing books and cured himself, which led to his new, current career as the Health Ranger.

Mike discovered that the power of lifestyle and dietary changes centered on avoiding ubiquitous processed foods and reliance on Big Pharma could not only help his condition but several others, and how the best medicines are food, supplements and exercise (http://www.naturalnews.com).
