Diabetes is a serious disease, marked by higher than normal levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Diabetes affects about 135 million people worldwide, and the number with this disease has been increasing steadily due, in part, to an increased number of overweight people. Type II diabetes, or adult onset diabetes is a nutritionally-related disease, one that is both preventable and reversible through nutritional methods and regular exercise. According to the American Diabetes Association, "the world faces a devastating diabetes epidemic, with the annual death toll already exceeding the three million killed by AIDS and set to rise, the World Health Organization warned".
Diabetes takes a severe toll on the person's health. More than 70 percent of adults with Type II diabetes die of heart attacks and strokes, and these deaths occur at a younger age compared to people without diabetes. Premature death and the devastating complications of this disease simply do not have to happen. Those with diabetes are told to watch their diet, exercise and use drugs to better control the glucose levels in their bloodstream. The nutritional advice received from the American Diabetes Association (ADA), dieticians and physicians is inadequate and permits countless of unnecessary premature deaths and much needless suffering. I declare, "Don't live with your diabetes and don't simply control your diabetes ... get rid of it."
The vast majority of my patients, who adopt my nutritional and exercise recommendations for diabetes, become thin and non-diabetic. They are able to gradually discontinue their insulin and eventually their other medications. They simply get well. I work with people who have diabetes and who want to live a long and healthy life. The membership services offered here on this website and the information in my book, Eat To Live, can get you started on this road to wellness. My hope is that the information below about diabetes will enable you to feel more confident and that you or someone you care about can be motivated to work with me to recover their health.
