This video, by Dr. Michael Greger at NutritionFacts.org tells how research proves that Type 2 Diabetes can actually be REVERSED by a change in diet. In the video he shared a study that was done with Diabetics who changed their diet and were able to completely reverse their disease and then drop their medications (under doctor’s supervision of course). He states, “Controlling Diabetes with diet can be very effective for some people.”
Dr. Greger continues his discussion in this second video, “Diabetes Reversal, Is It the Calories or the Food?” He states,”Type 2 reversal should be the goal. A diet centered around vegetables, fruits, grains and beans is more effective in controlling diabetes than any other dietary treatment.”
He then went on to share some incredible facts and studies. In one study, patients with Type 2 Diabetes were put on a whole-foods plant-based diet (yet they were not restricted to lower calories). After only 16 DAYS, all of the patients were able to reduce their insulin (60% overall) and half of the patients were able come off of their insulin all together, because their blood sugar and cholesterol were down to normal levels. These patients had struggled with diabetes for 20 years and now after only 16 days they were able to reduce their insulin (on average) by 20 units of insulin per day. WOW! Their blood sugar was lowered and their cholesterol was lowered and in many cased, their diabetes was REVERSED (in less than 1 month)!
If you have a loved-one who is struggling with diabetes, please share these powerful videos with them and help them know that their health and their quality of life is worth it! (Besides that, there are a ton of incredibly delicious and satisfying foods to eat on a whole-foods, plant-based diet!)
