Type-1 Diabetic Moves From Nutritional Balancing to Biochemical Restoration

Beginning today, as part of a New Year shift, we are starting a slightly different protocol for reversing Nicole’s type-1 diabetes, kidney failure (and other ride along ailments).

Two years ago we began following both Dr. Richard Bernstein’s Diabetes Diet and Elaine Gostschall’s Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD). SCD was soon replaced by the more thorough Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) protocol by Dr. Campbell-McBride (which is a combination of the Weston A. Price diet and SCD). Last year, this expanded to include the supplement, lifestyle and detox protocols of Nutritional Balancing as taught by Dr. Lawrence Wilson and originally developed by Dr. Paul Eck.

We weren’t jumping around from program to program. Each one built upon the one before, adding new components, rather than taking away. We have now begun working with Pam Killeen, a wellness coach and consultant who uses a variant of Nutritional Balancing which she calls Biochemical Restoration.

So why are we moving from Nutritional Balancing to Biochemical Restoration? Here are four reasons:

  1. Better Name: I think the name is more accurate. I’ve no real interest in “balancing our nutrition.” I really don’t understand why they didn’t keep the original name, Mineral Balancing, which seems closer to the target. In the end, balancing minerals and nutrition are only aspects of the healing program that yields the final result: Biochemical Restoration. The theory goes that if you can restore the bodies biochemistry, diseases like type-1 diabetes go away on their own.
  2.  Higher-Fat, Lower Carb: The diet Pam Killeen uses with Biochemical Restoration is similar to the high-fat, low-carb, moderate protein diet we were following with GAPS. Nutritional Balancing focused on less fat and more carb. This led to unwanted weight loss, lower energy and poor blood sugar control (not just for Nicole, but myself also).
  3. Online Support Group: Killeen’s program includes an online forum where clients can converse with her and each other.
  4. Local. Pam Killeen lives and works out of London, Ontario, only a 45-minute drive from where we live.

Pam Killeen seems to have combined he best of Dr. Weston A. Price’s approach with the best of Dr. Paul Eck and Dr. Lawrence Wilson’s approach. Pam’s Biochemical Restoration program still includes: Daily reflexology, daily coffee enemas, daily sauna therapy, mild exercise, fresh air and lots of rest.

Today we cut off another tablespoon of Nicole’s hair (this time without any blood).  It’s now in the hands of Canada Post on its way to the laboratory in Arizona. This time Pam Killeen will review results and create the targeted supplement plan for the next four months.
