| Diabetes has become a seemingly unstoppable national epidemic, affecting more than twenty million Americans. Conventional wisdom calls it incurable, but renowned Dr. Gabriel Cousens counters that claim with this breakthrough book. There Is a Cure for Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. |
Dr. Cousenss method, widely tested at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days. Both practical and inspirational, the book explains how to abandon the widespread "culture of death" symbolized by addictive junk food, that fosters diabetes in favor of a more natural, nurturing approach.
The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes. Dr. Cousens emphasizes regular consultations, monitoring blood chemistries, and emotional support, and includes a one-year support program to help maintain a diabetes-free life.
Worldwide, 246 million people have diabetes and every two seconds one person dies from it and two more contract it. It is a problem that is spiralling further out of control with each passing year and the mainstream medical world has little to offer in the way of a solution - it sees diabetes as "incurable"; a chronic disease that can, at best, be managed with medication and maybe the odd dietary tweak.
What the average person (and the average doctor) does not know is that holistic physicians have been successfully healing diabetes for decades now. With 35 years of clinical experience, Cousens is a world-renowned expert on the subject, who has been referred to as "the worlds leading medical authority on diabetes."
This book is substantially broader in its scope than a simple exploration of diabetes and how to heal it naturally, and this is because Cousens sees diabetes as a symptom of what he calls "the culture of death". Many alive today would simply call this "normal life": dead food, fast food, obesity, nutritional deficiencies, stress, caffeine, alcohol and vaccinations and spending hours watching television. Diabetes can be healed by adopting the culture of life lifestyle, which is outlined in the book.
It is centred on a nutrient-rich plant-based diet made up of large amounts of raw and living foods. The plan Cousens recommends (a 21-day kick-start followed by a maintenance programme) has been shown to not only completely reverse type-2 diabetes but even to massively improve type-1 diabetes. So effective is the programme that it is not unusual for diabetes patients to have normal blood glucose readings within the first 21 days of following it.
This book is an impeccably researched and highly practical guide to transforming ones life with a holistically healthy lifestyle. Resources include a comprehensive recipe section and also a detailed chapter on juice feasting. As such, it is not just for the diabetes sufferer but for anyone who wants to upgrade their diet and lifestyle and reap the benefits in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
