This may be okay if you believe in homeopathic medicine. While I personally do not, to each their own.

I can agree that people can manage diabetes to near normal living, but they cannot let up in their management as diabetes will come roaring back. These people claim "cure" when in fact it is managing diabetes very tightly. Just because they claim that their patients are not on medications, this is no "cure" justification for me.

Agreed

I've sure found a lot of garbage on the web since I've been diagnosed.
