Marcus’s story is not a typical story of diabetes. The particular way Marcus developed diabetes has allowed him to come off insulin, whilst keeping blood sugar levels stable.

When I was 9 years old, I was diagnosed with diabetes. In the beginning it was very strange, for almost two years. I barely needed any insulin, I could eat almost whatever and the doctors looked very surprised!

It was like my pancreas still produced insulin, like it wanted to fight and keep itself alive. But eventually that decreased and went away after around two years.

I went to different kinds of healers like a Qi Gong master from China, Kinesolog, Acupuncturist, Massage therapist.

I ate or drank a lot of different stuff (like bitter cucumber) that really helped me the first years.

They all told me I had “ fake diabetes ” and that it could be cured and that it had something to do with the stomach and the kidneys.

But since I was a teenager I did not take the responsibility and rarely listened to what they said and what my body said.

I drank alcohol and ate a lot of bad food contributing to a high HbA1c for around two or three years.

Vegetarian lifestyle

Then one day, I got a call from my mother telling me that my father had asked for help after almost 20 years of alcoholism

I was shocked and right away I determined to stop too and become a more healthy being.

A lot of help and wisdom from my mother made this easier than expected. I had just 2 months earlier become a vegetarian and step by step I experimented and explored a healthier lifestyle.

I tried Raw Food and in 2010 I started with a LCHF diet (low carb high fat) and it went pretty well but still those shots everyday.

In April 2011, I went to a frequency healer, recommended by my mum and I wanted to give it a shot. This is a machine invented by a person from NASA which calculates the frequencies that your body is sending out into the computer. You can then see what instabilites you have.

Pancreas infection

The conclusion from the visit was that I had an infection in my pancreas, rather than the conventional types of diabetes! Well this was very shocking after 11 years of having diabetes symptoms

The healer instructed me to eat alkaline food since the stomach was the issue as to why I did not heal from the infection. I did so and 6 weeks later I came back and my results were great according to the computer as well as with my blood sugar.

She said that with the number of years you’ve had diabetes, it will take many months to fully recover so I am still in the recovering process.

Volunteering in Costa Rica

I was volunteering in Costa Rica for 3 months, Aug-Nov 2011, and had a hard time with the different food and carbohydrates which made my blood sugar rise again but now I have really put effort into this and since I am now choosing my own food again, I have great results.

Sometimes I no longer need my long acting insulin

Free from diabetes

I also discovered that when I am doing training and exercise, that I truly enjoy, (like skateboarding, parkour, snowboarding and surfing) that my blood sugar level gets lower and stabilizes my control. I discovered that you need the joy in the exercise to get great results.

At least that goes for me and that is my story of how I became free from diabetes
