November is American Diabetes Month, and I am happily writing this article to help teach others that this dis-ease can be completely healed without daily shots of insulin and pharmaceuticals. And pretty easily, too! My father reversed diabetes almost a decade ago, and I am living proof that our diet truly changes our health, as I healed a rare blood disease over 16 years ago.
Diet Induces And Also Cures Diabetes
Let me give more details on my dad… he ate and still eats the typical American diet. No organics, no free range or healthier meats, and compared to me, lots of what I consider junk. He just doesn’t care that much about this newer way of choosing the foods we eat, but believe me, has become aware of this desire to eat the healthiest foods possible because of my decision to heal my blood and body through nutrition. The thing my father did change though, was his sugar consumption. He went from drinking Coca-Cola and fruit juices all day, to drinking nothing but water and occasionally a craft beer, he cut out sugary meals for breakfast and snacks, and stopped eating so many processed desserts everyday.
Through my journey with healing foods, I learned to make my own desserts with brown rice syrup, and completely weaned myself from my sugar addiction, but my dad did it alone. He didn’t want to give himself shots and knew from me, that our health conditions could be reversed. As difficult as it is to make changes to the foods we love to eat, especially sugar, dealing with daily injections and for myself, a daily chemotherapy pill, was enough to make us consider changing our diets. After only 3 months, my father’s blood tests were dramatically lower and he knew he was on the right path.
What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know Or Won’t Tell
From a conventional medical point of view, our doctors are taught to treat health conditions with drugs, and they are generously paid by the pharmaceutical industry. Even my dad’s doctor once said that it would be so simple to tell his patients to clean up their diet, but what most want is a magical pill or solution to make their symptoms better. I wonder though, why they don’t at least share food as a viable treatment option? Maybe some people, if not all, would at least consider making changes, especially when this protocol comes from their doctor, whom they trust.
Make That Critical Diet Choice
There is change beginning to happen, but slowly. Most of us know the importance of eating well, but when our food industry makes artificial, food-like products, and adds enormous amounts of sugar to practically every item on the grocer’s shelves and in restaurants, and the FDA allows it, our health is at risk. We must make big changes on our own, and unfortunately most of the time, it’s when a health crisis happens to us.
My father and I healed these dis-eases in our bodies, and I feel we were fortunate in many ways to have these wake-up calls with our health. The old saying, “We Are What We Eat” is absolutely true, and in the process of healing, we also began felling better and our brain was clearer, as a result. Changing the foods we’ve eaten our entire life can be one of the most difficult things to do, but in my opinion, not nearly as difficult as it is being sick and in a doctor’s office all of the time.
Diabetes Can Be Reversed
Fast forward 10 years~ my dad’s blood sugar levels remain balanced. He still enjoys his nightly dessert of ice cream and continues to drink beer and wine probably once a week, but he’s learned to take better care of himself with food choices and walking as much as possible. Achieving balance in our body is really as simple as making the decision to change some of the things we’re over-doing. And it doesn’t have to be done perfectly or with complete avoidance of the foods we love to eat.
