The crucial and most important fact your doctor can’t and won’t tell you about your diabetes — its cause and how to cure it.
Now, your doctor probably isn’t a bad person. But most physicians aren’t taught about nutrition and its impact on health. Nor do they have an inclination to learn on their own. It may seem strange but food, as medicine is not within the traditional medical paradigm. This is tragic because in the 21st century the vast majority of the diseases that impact us as we age are “food borne illnesses” in that they are directly tied to how we eat.
Standard and conventional dietetic recommendations about what to eat as a diabetic do not address the underlying dietary food borne process that causes not only diabetes but a host of other diseases as well; including hypertension, heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, cancer among them.
The good news is there is abundant compelling research and case study evidence that shows that the whole food vegan diet will prevent the development of diabetes. The live food vegan diet if carefully tailored to your individualized body constitution will in almost all type II diabetics and in the majority of type I diabetics actually reverse the problem so that YOU DON’T HAVE IT ANYMORE!
Sadly the majority of internists and endocrinologists think that this type of diet is too radical, is unproven, or worse, are ignorant of the effects of animal products and processed foods in the genesis of diabetes and therefore haven’t even looked into the primary prevention and cure of diabetes through removing the food borne cause as an option. Even most pediatricians are unaware of the positive link between dairy products and juvenile diabetes. Therefore you probably didn’t hear about it from your pediatrician either. You weren’t given the option of choosing changing your behavior and resolving the diabetic state vs. taking medications for the rest of your life.
An educated patient is an empowered patient. There are plentiful resource’s available for you to research this yourself. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is one source. They have many articles about health and nutrition. Their diabetes article is at http://www.pcrm.org/health/health-topics/diet-and-diabetes-recipes-for-success. The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell outlines extensive studies of disease patterns in relation to dietary habits. The documentary film Raw For 30 Days shows how a raw diet can quickly reverse the disease and eliminate the need for medication. To mention only a few.
The truth of the matter is you are not helpless. A family history of diabetes does not doom you to the same fate. A diagnosis of diabetes or “pre” diabetes is not one you need to keep or even fear. Diabetes is a food borne illness that is as reversible as reversing the diabetogenic diet that led to it. You can turn it around, and walk a different road. Educate yourself. Find a knowledgeable practitioner who can assist you in your change and monitor your progress.
