How an MD Cured Hundreds of People of Diabetes
Obese Man has high probability of getting diabetes | Gabriel Cousens MD
Gabriel Cousins M.D. has cured hundreds of people with type 2 diabetes and has greatly helped people with type 1 diabetes. Diabetes has so much in common with obesity, they say that in America there is an epidemic of diabesity.
This article was written August 15, 2013 and Gabriel Cousens is 70 years of age. So if you plan on going to his center, I advise that you do it soon. As of 2011, over 11% of Americans (adults) have diabetes. The rate of prediabetes (not quite high enough to be diabetes) in America is 3 times as high as this.
Officially diabetes is incurable! The Mississippi Department of Health says:
What is Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes is an incurable disease that affects the way the body uses food. Diabetes causes glucose levels in the blood to be too high.
As of 2010 the percentage of Americans with obesity is over 35% and steadily growing. In 1985 less than 15% of Americans were obese. Obesity is defined has having a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or higher. For someone that is 5'9" that is 203 pounds or higher. For someone that is 5'5" that is about 180 pounds or higher.
Here is a BMI calculator from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Below is a 2 part video that follows 6 people with diabetes that goes to Dr. Cousen's center in Arizona for 30 days. The major change the people made was to eat a raw plant-based diet. The 2 part video has been made into one video for now.
These happen to be the same foods that Dr. Oz says are the healthiest foods to eat. See Does Dr. Oz Promote a Raw Plant-Based Diet. The book below by Dr. Cousens says the following:
Gabriel Cousens is the author of seven internationally acclaimed books including Spiritual Nutrition and Creating Peace by Being Peace. Known worldwide as a spiritual teacher and the leading expert in live, plant-source nutrition, Dr. Cousens functions as a holistic physician, psychiatrist, family therapist, and cutting edge researcher on healing diabetes naturally.
He holds an M.D. from Columbia Medical School, a doctorate in homeopathy, and diplomas in Ayurveda, clinical acupuncture, and holistic medicine. His multi-cultural background as an ordained rabbi, an acknowledged yogi, and a four-year Native American sundancer, adds insight to his "whole-person enlightenment" teachings.
In his book, There Is A Cure For Diabetes, Dr. Cousens presents his rejuvenation center's program for reversing diabetes naturally.
For a difference of opinion here is the book by Mark Hyman M.D., 8 Steps to Reversing Diabesity. It is easier to follow but I do not know how effective it is. As far as a healthy diet there is a very basic rule. Dr. Oz says to eat foods that do not have an ingredient list.
In other words this means to eat foods that are not processed by man like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and mushrooms. This is what wild animals in nature eat. Also wild animals eat all of their food raw.
To watch both videos below takes about 90 minutes. Here are the highlights of it. It shows 6 people in their home towns with diabetes going to Dr. Cousen's center. One older guy had his blood sugar brought down to normal but left after 2 week since the diet was too hard to follow. You can eat as much as you want but it is still hard for people to follow.
There were 4 others that had type 2 diabetes and one with type 1 diabetes. After a month, the one with type 1 diabetes was able to drop his insulin from 70 units down to 5 units a day. With the 4 others, they were able to get off all of their medication and have a normal blood sugar level meaning that they were cured.
Of course the wrong diet can bring it back again. Two of these people were older and stopped taking over a dozen medications (drugs) each. Now one guy was young and thin with type 2 diabetes and that is very unusual. The doctors tested him out thoroughly when he got back home and said that he actually had type 1 diabetes that was cured.
He actually had type 1.5 diabetes or Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA). Here is what Wikipedia says about LADA. Officially it can still be said to be type 1 diabetes. This is a shorter article of mine, but you can watch the 2 videos below and you can also buy Dr. Cousen's book on curing diabetes.
Research shows that you can lower your risk for type 2 diabetes by 58% by:
- Losing 7% of your body weight (or 15 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds)
- Exercising moderately (such as brisk walking) 30 minutes a day, five days a week
This was not mentioned on the video below but it shows people walking so they were probably encouraged to do this. Although the guy that did drop out, only sat all of the time and did not get any activity according to one of the 6 people in the group. Walking has many other benefits. For more on the mnay benefits of walking see Single Best Thing You Can Do for Your Health.
It is definitely not easy changing your diet this dramatically. That is why one guy out of the 6 dropped out even though his blood sugar level was normal after a few days. Here is a company with world class health products. If you click on Products, you will see Targeted Nutrition. Then click on that and one of the products that you will see is GlucoManage. Click on that to learn more about this product that helps manage blood sugar levels. It says:
Then it adds the proprietary SugarSolver™ blend. This blend is specifically targeted for greater blood sugar control with eight key nutrients such as bitter melon, banaba leaf extract, gymnema sylvestre, cinnamon, Vanadyl Sulfate and more.
As a result GlucoManage® helps control your blood sugar in 4 vital ways:
- By reducing insulin resistance
- By stimulating insulin production
- By decreasing carb cravings
- By promoting greater overall health
Make sure to watch the first video below this. It has a great story about a doctor (Joel Fuhrman M.D.) that cured diabetes in hundreds of people. A diabetes magazine asked him to write an article for them and he did. But then they read it and said that they could not publish it since he got people completely off of all diabetes medication. Their sponsor is a drug company that makes insulin.
Below this the video was in 2 parts but part 1 was taken down. I am leaving up part 2 but the second video below is supposed to be the whole thing. Also it is enhanced and better than the original one.
All of the products of this company have an unconditional money back guarantee for 60 days!
There is a Cure for Diabetes by Gabriel Cousens M.D.
There Is a Cure for Diabetes, Revised Edition: The 21-Day+ Holistic Recovery Program
“There is abundant evidence that people with even long-standing diabetes can improve their health dramatically—and practically reverse their condition. Gabriel Cousens, MD, shows you how to tackle this disease through lifestyle intervention, explaining how a low-fat, vegan diet could save your life. There Is a Cure for Diabetes is an extraordinary tool that will guide you in your journey to fight diabetes and regain your health.” —Neal Barnard, MD, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine “As a doctor who has treated diabetes for nearly thirty years, I can tell you with certainty that the standard medical protocols and management of this illness are not only inappropriate, they’re absurd. In sharp contrast, Gabriel Cousens, MD, has developed a protocol for successfully restoring the health and well-being of diabetics, sparing them the pain and agony of unnecessary and inevitable amputations, obesity, blindness, and premature death. If followed, his advice in There Is a Cure for Diabetes provides diabetics freedom from their illness and enriches the quality of their lives.” —Daniel Nuchovich, MD, director of Jupiter Gardens Medical Center and Jupiter Institute of the Healing Arts

Joel Fuhrman M.D. is a board-certified family physician, NY Times best-selling author and nutritional researcher who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. He is an internationally recognized expert on nutrition and natural healing, and has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows including the Dr. Oz show, the Today Show, Good Morning America, and Live with Kelly. Dr. Fuhrman's own hugely successful PBS television shows, "3 Steps to Incredible Health" and "Dr. Fuhrman's Immunity Solution" bring nutritional science to homes all across America. He promotes a plant-based diet but not all raw.
The other book by Dr. Hyman is no longer available. This says: An internationally respected physician, researcher, educator, activist, and five-time New York Times best-seller. Dr. Hyman has dedicated his life and career to ensuring optimal health - UltraWellness - for all individuals. His new book and PBS special, The Blood Sugar Solution, will be released March 2012 to address the global epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular and other related diseases.
His revolutionary "secret" to achieving UltraWellness? Dr. Hyman is the world's leading pioneer and practitioner of a ground-breaking and emerging approach to medicine that treats our system, not our symptoms. This new health paradigm is a systems-based, patient-centered method (called Functional Medicine) to preventing and treating disease and promoting health that works on two intertwined platforms: identifying and addressing the underlying causes of disease instead of just managing and masking symptoms and employing emerging trends in science and medicine, and integrative medicine.
Dr. Hyman teaches that there are seven keys to achieving UltraWellness, centering on Optimizing Nutrition, Cooling Off Inflammation, Balancing Hormones, Optimizing Digestive Health, Enhancing Detoxification, Boosting Energy and Metabolism and Calming the Mind.
