Diabetes mellitus can be reversed with low carb diets, especially therapeutic ketogenic diet since it has less than 20 g of carbs per day. Transition to ketosis eliminates a need for insulin since fats do not increase blood sugar levels. Ketones become the main fuel source for the brain, muscles, and other body organs.
In this second video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz expand on the relation of breathing retraining to diabetes. Volker mentions the importance of lifestyle for maintaining high control pause levels. When people move a lot during the day, they require less formal physical exercise. For example, they walk to work or have physically demanding work. Dr. Artour Rakhimov emphasizes exercise to be intensive to provide a higher CP.
All of Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s students that made changes to their breathing patterns got rid of their diabetic symptoms. They followed all of the requirements of the breathing retraining course. It is quite difficult to practice lots of breathing exercises and physical exercise daily that is needed for diabetics. Students did not follow a specified low carb diet by the breathing retraining course at the beginning stages of Dr. Artour Rakhimov’s teaching career.

According to Dr. Artour Rakhimov, the most successful Western clinical trial on diabetes type 2 relates to diet. Doctors recommend following a low carbohydrate diet for diabetes. Diabetes is the condition where blood sugar level is chronically high. Studies from the 1920’s and 1950’s mention diabetes as a condition with a too high blood sugar level. This is from eating too many carbohydrates. For example, some high carb foods include rice, banana, potato, bread and so forth. The solution can be by considering diabetes as a disease with an intolerance to glucose. This requires glucose to be restricted to a low level in the diet. According to the ketogenic diet, it recommends about 20 grams of glucose daily. Even consuming 50 to 100 grams daily would make a significant change. Most people eat over 200 hundreds of grams of carbohydrates daily.

Human bodies are not designed to digest carbohydrates properly. Good fats should be used from olive oil, butter, coconut oil and so forth. They will not cause a spike in blood sugar levels. Ketones will be used as an energy source in the ketogenic diet. Historically, the number of carbohydrates eaten was very little.
From solely using the ketogenic diet or a low carb diet people can reduce their insulin. This diet is strict and requires very little amount of carbs per day. It is recommended to not eat lots of fruits but greens such as broccoli are allowed.
Another way to get rid of diabetes is to combine following breathing retraining and having a low carb diet. This is a much easier method. You might not have to restrict carbs so much when practicing breathing retraining. Diabetes is one the top three killers in the world. The disease itself does not kill, but it happens from the diabetic complications.
