I am a diabetic (for 20 years), on 8 meds plus a small evening insulin shot. When I found info on the raw food lifestyle, I also found material on reversing diabetes. My doctor & endocrinologist are both supportive of my efforts, surprisingly.
I made it clear that my ultimate goal was to be off most, if not all of my meds. After 3 weeks of green smoothies, not even every morning, and some small changes in diet, I had lost 9 lbs. and felt like I had some energy again. This is definitely incentive!
Thank you for the info you are providing on the internet, and I hope that the legal issues are soon resolved.
If I had the money and the resources, it would be great to do one of those big studies like the pharmaceutical companies do of "typical benefits." I'd like to know just what percentage of people see a significant change in their blood sugar levels and energy levels when they convert to a Raw Living Foods program.
During my years as Director of Creative Health Institute every diabetic that went through the program reported a significant reduction in medication, usually within three or four days of starting the program.
The medical community says that treating diabetes is a matter of diet and exercise; well, that's what Dr. Ann Wigmore's Lifestyle Program is all about. It not only changes your diet, it also reduces your stress level and encourages you to get the proper types of exercise on a daily basis, "just what the doctor ordered."
Congratulations to Ruth and to the many others that email me stories about reversing their diabetes - even to the point of getting off their meds - with raw living foods.
One does not have to be sick, but you do need to "choose" to be healthy. Here's a link to our current, legally required "typical benefits and results" statement.
