Diabetes is a disease that affects 9.3% of the population. That works out to 29.1 million people in this country that have it. This is according to data from 2012 brought forth by the American Diabetes Association. The numbers are growing more and more every year. The main focus in treating people with diabetes is to minimize their blood sugar levels without dropping them down too much. This is done by exercise, dropping weight, eating a diabetic-geared diet, and taking insulin if needed.
There are two different types of diabetes:
Type 1 – The people diagnosed with this type need to take insulin every day as the body does not produce the amount needed to convert glucose in the blood to energy.
Type 2 – This is the most common form. People with Type 2 often have to take pills such as Metformin or have to take insulin because while the body is still producing insulin, it is either not using it the way it should or there is not enough to keep glucose levels down.
Six participants took part in an experimental study to see if they could reverse their diabetes. Their ages ranged from 25 years old to 62 years old. All of these participants had very severe cases. Some were severely obese. One had a blood sugar level of 1200 (the normal range is under 100). One had a drinking problem. Five of the participants had Type 2 diabetes and one had Type 1. All of them were taking insulin in some form.
Gabriel Cousens and his team from the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center had a simple method to treat these subjects. They put them on a raw, plant-based diet. Everything that they prepared for them was raw foods. No meat, just vegetables and fruits, everything in its raw form. The results happened quickly.
By the third day three of the participants were off insulin. The other participants were able to cut the amount of insulin that they were taking. The oldest of the group was seeing a lot of improvement in his health but requested to go home. He could not continue eating the foods that they were giving to him. He left on day 17 with a lower blood pressure, a significantly lower blood glucose level, and had a 30 pound weight loss.
By the end of the 30 day program four of the participants were off medication and off insulin. Their blood sugar was within a normal range. Many of them had lost a great amount of weight as well. Only one of the participants was still taking his insulin but had dropped from 70 units per day to 5.
This study shows that there are ways that you can naturally help your diabetes or cure it all together. It does take hard work and a lot of commitment. It also shows that there are ways other than running to a pharmacy that you can live a healthier life.
