All this week on the Pure Jeevan blog, we'll be focusing on diabetes and the movement to naturally reverse it. We're working up to April 25th (my birthday!), which has been selected as the official Reversing Diabetes Naturally Day.

A warm, intelligent, and loving individual named Dr. Gabriel Cousens has been doing ground-breaking work and research on diabetes and diet. What he has found is so surprising that many people dismiss what he is saying, believing it to be false. But, I (along with many others in the natural health movement) am here to tell you that what Dr. Cousens has discovered is TRUE! You probably already know what he has discovered, of course: a change in diet (particulary including raw foods) can reverse diabetes!

Dr. Cousens did a small study on some diabetic individuals, documenting his work and findings. The resulting documentary is remarkable. We hosted a viewing of the movie at our home and the room was packed. Everyone sat silently, absorbing the truth of what they were seeing: diet CAN make a difference in a disease that is thought to be permanent and debilitating. Many of us had tears silently streaming down our faces, touched by the moving stories that were shared in the documentary. We were filled with a sense of excitement that there IS hope for those with diabetes!

Diabetes affects millions. Chances are, you either have close friends or family who suffer with the disease, or maybe you, yourself, are either prediabetic or diabetic. Diabetes diagnoses have skyrocketed in recent years, and it's now showing up at alarming rates among our children, as well. What's worse, almost every individual affected by diabetes thinks that there's no help or cure. So, the more we spread the word, the more we can see our loved ones and others regaining their health and vitality along with the rest of us! Let's not keep this a secret -- Diabetes IS Reversible!!

If you haven't seen clips from the documentary, yet, you can view it on a special page we are going to continue updating over this week. Right now the page is sharing information about the documentary and includes an amazing deal for anyone purchasing the DVD before the end of this month (over $300 in free materials just for supporting the mission to reverse diabetes naturally!).I can't recommend this DVD strongly enough, as it clearly shows REAL proof of natural diabetes reversal. And, it's not just any raw foods diet, either. Dr. Cousens has developed a specific treatment protocol.

As the week progresses, we'll be adding more information about diabetes to that page. Also, check back here at the blog all this week to read some inspiring stories shared by those who have been naturally healing their bodies from diabetes by eating a raw food diet! Tomorrow we'll be sharing one of those stories, as well as ways that you can easily help support this movement to reverse diabetes naturally!

Together we can all make a positive change in this world!

Lots of love to all of you,

Wendi

My husband Zee went to his endocrinologist today. She had heard he was on a raw food diet three months ago and was quite congratulatory. As of today, he has lost 81 pounds. His blood work shows that his A1c is doing fine,
his fasting blood sugars are normal range, he's taking very little insulin. But he stopped taking his Lipitor, which he has disagreed with all along. And he showed her the book, There Is A Cure For Diabetes by Gabriel Cousens.

She freaked. She went into a long dissertation telling him that diabetes cannot be cured. She said he has substituted control of diabetes with food, instead of insulin. Zee is only in remission; But it's only controlled. It will never be cured.

(He hadn't said it was cured, he's working on it, it was simply the title of the book that caused the reaction.) We know allopathic personnel are very insistent that chronic illness cannot be cured. And they have a lot at stake if all of a sudden people stop following some of their advice. So we weren't daunted. Since Dr. Cousens is also an M.D., and a psychiatrist,I'm assuming he was very careful in the title he chose, knowing how his colleagues would respond. That makes me feel even more strongly about the validity of his research and writings and his inspiration.

Danieal,

This is for Type 1 AND Type 2 diabetes. Type one is easier to reverse, of course. Type 1 is
sometimes helped significantly, but it may take a long time to completely reverse it. The quality
of life is vastly improved for Type 1s, however, even if the diabetes isn't instantly reversed!

Lots of love to you,

Wendi
