I just found out this video - Any thoughts on this?

I neither have the guts nor the means to drink this. Don't also recommend anyone taking this.  But, while searching on some spiritual stuff,  I came across Ayahuasca and was wondering if if this is true. Seems to be from the fox channel.

I don't know about the science behind it, but the reporter got way too many facts wrong.

 

What good of a Type1 diabetic to generate new beta cells if their immune system keeps killing them?

The problem for most Type2 diabetics isn't a lack of insulin, but the inability of the body to make proper use of it.  Granted later they may loose the ability to produce insulin, but even so, flooding the body with more and more insulin isn't a solution to the problem.

 

Now it is possible that this could be of use to those who have lost the ability to produce insulin through some physical damage to their pancreas that sin't related to an autoimmune attack.
