[IP] Interesting TV item, how true or not I don't know.
I heard a story on the EXTRA show this evenening. Since I have my doubts about
their "reporting" (which I suspect is more sensationalizing than reporting), I
wouldn't go too wild about it, but we should keep watching for developments.....
Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

Herbal Diabetes Help?
Many Americans are using herbal
remedies to increase energy, improve
memory and even to fight the blues. Now there's a natural
food supplement that could change the lives of 16 million
Americans who suffer from diabetes. We investigate in our
EXTRA special report.
"I was scared that one day I'm not going to wake up."
Fourteen-year-old Sandy Marshall of Cleveland, Ohio is
talking about her diabetes -- A condition which requires her
to take pills and endure six painful injections everyday, plus
constant visits to the hospital. "It was bad, I mean just like
every morning, I would pray that I won't get sick."
Sandy is a type 1 diabetic, meaning her Pancreas doesn't
function at all. Her condition is very serious and extremely
rare, but to make matters worse she's resistant to life
saving insulin: "I will take twice as many shots as regular
diabetics and it still doesn't do anything."
Her mother, Charlotte, says even the doctors don't know
how to keep Sandy's diabetes under control: "They'll flat
out tell you 'We don't know what to do,' I guess that's why
they call it the practice of medicine."
A couple of months ago, Sandy's blood sugar levels were
dangerously high, nearing 800 -- a level that would normally
put people into a coma. Desperate, she found hope in an
unlikely place -- Paul Daliwahl, a chemist living in southern
California. He created an herbal remedy for people like
Sandy called "Pancreas Tonic."
Where did he get his inspiration? "While I was meditating, I
got a message from almighty God to help heal the people."
He says the ingredients came to him in bits over a series of
months. With the names of the rare herbs in hand, he went
back to his native India and worked out the exact formula.
Sandy tried the herbal remedy and claims her blood sugar
dropped back down to normal levels. "When I saw my
sugars coming down, I got like excited... these past seven
weeks of not going to the hospital is just wonderful to me, I
In sunny Palm Springs, California, seventy five year old
diabetic Shirley Becker claims Pancreas Tonic worked for
her too and helped her walk again: "It really is unbelievable
that I can walk and that I don't have the pain in my legs."
But could Shirley and Sandie's improvement be a fluke?
Internist Dr. William Taylor was skeptical, so he set up a
study to investigate the effectiveness of the herbal remedy.
Some people got the tonic while others got a placebo, and
now Dr. Taylor claims the tonic works. "We saw marked
difference of blood sugars with those receiving the agent
versus those who do not."
This means that patients on the tonic seem to have more
control over their Diabetes. Another study from the UCLA
affiliated Drew Medical College, published in the Journal of
the National Medical Association, also yielded promising
results. Taylor says: "We are witnessing a cure to diabetes.
Our data supports that. In other words, it's not just
controlling blood sugar. We are actually witnessing a
regeneration of the cells that control the production of
No longer a skeptic, Dr. Taylor thinks this could be one of
the biggest medical breakthroughs of this century. If true,
it's a dream come true for people like Sandy who are waiting
to be freed from the painful grip of diabetes. "I have always
had the belief that one day it's gonna go away and that
every day is gonna be somewhat better."
EXTRA spoke with Dr. Mayer Davidson, former president
of the American Diabetes Association, about pancreas tonic.
He said if the data continues to look promising, he will
conduct further studies at Drew Medical College's clinical
