(NaturalNews) The mainstream media is just now catching on to what NaturalNews and other natural health advocates have been saying for years: type 2 diabetes can be reversed through dietary and lifestyle changes, and without the need for lifelong drug interventions. A recent report by CNN says that improving one's diet, keeping off excess weight, and regularly exercising, can help millions of people with diabetes get rid of it for good.
"We have seen numerous people reverse their condition," Dr. Michelle Magee, director of the MedStar Diabetes Institute in Washington, is quoted as saying by CNN. "But it takes a real dedication for the rest of their lives."
Typically, overweight or obese people who eat poorly and exercise little develop type 2 diabetes. The conventional course of action is then to regularly watch blood sugar levels with a monitor and take daily shots of insulin, the hormone normally produced by the pancreas to process sugars, but that is lacking in diabetics.
But by eliminating processed foods loaded with highly refined sugars, eating lots of whole, organic foods, and getting regular exercise to maintain healthy muscle and fat levels, diabetes can actually get their bodies back on track to where they can once again naturally produce their own insulin, and even stop having to inject themselves with insulin every day.
Last year, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, conducted an interview with Dr. Gabriel Cousens, founder of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center
in Patagonia, Ariz. In the interview, Cousens explains how raw foods can helps to cure diabetes
. According to Cousens, his regimen has proven to be successful in up to 95 percent of diabetics. You can listen to the full interview here: http://www.naturalnews.com/028341_diabetes_l...
