Santa Claus turns to nutritional therapies to beat type-2 diabetes before Christmas

Earlier this month, Santa Claus went public with his diagnosis of type-2 diabetes and asked for the help of nutritionists to teach him how to overcome the blood sugar disorder before Christmas. NewsTarget has now learned that Santa has already begun a course of nutritional therapy designed to reverse his diabetic condition.

"I am committed to regaining my health in a safe, natural way that does not make me dependent on prescription medications," Santa told NewsTarget. "I am now working with a team of top nutritionists to get rid of all the diabetes-promoting foods in my pantry."

That team includes Connie Bennett, author of the book, SUGAR SHOCK! (available on Amazon.com Dec. 26), Byron Richards, author of Mastering Leptin (available at www.WellnessResources.com), Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author of Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine and founder of the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, Arizona, and Mike Adams, author of How to Halt Diabetes in 25 Days (available at www.TruthPublishing.com).

Richards advised Santa that while he was recovering he would need to avoid all refined sugar and refined carbohydrates, including the high-fructose corn syrup found in sodas. Santa was at first dismayed, as his favorite foods were sugar-coated pastries and cookies. Santa brightened up considerably when Richards told him to focus on having a "Berry Merry Christmas." Santa was told to have a cup of fresh blueberries every other day. On his off days he was to eat blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries. To increase variety Santa was advised to also include cherries and pomegranate.

Richards explained that while these fresh fruits contained natural sugar, their healing power is found in their deeply-colored pigments. Unlike the refined foods that dominate our current disease-stricken culture, these colorful foods have the power to change Santa's health back to normal.

Connie Bennett offered Santa specific advice for getting over sugar. "Santa, even though you're the world's most famous gift giver, I recommend that right now, before you get ultra-busy leaving presents for kids around the globe that you give yourself the greatest gift of all -- and that's creating some good habits, which could improve your health," Bennett said.

"To begin, I suggest that you ask Mrs. Claus to support you on your new, life-changing program. Ask her to start preparing healthy meals and snacks for you. First off, you need to keep fresh vegetables and low-sugar fruits around. Then it could be helpful to eat fish and lean meats, legumes, seeds, as well as healthy fats like olive oil, nuts and avocados. Also try to avoid all those processed, white-flour carbs -- cookies, crackers, breads, and, of course, soft drinks."

Bennett then offered Santa two nutritional tips to jump-start his progress:

"1) Delay. This is the first of my 'Six D's' that I developed back in 1998 when I kicked sugar on doctor's orders. If those cookies tempt you, just put off having them for five minutes. Basically, you'll be doing creative procrastination -- you're putting off eating that junk food for a few minutes. Then you can delay again and again until your desire subsides.

"2) Think fulfillment, not deprivation. Santa, even though you're cutting back on sugary foods, please keep saying 'Ho, ho, ho,' Don't give into a woe-is-me attitude and start feeling sorry for yourself that you can't have cookies. A better approach toward your diabetes is to say, 'Wow, if I quit eating sugary chocolate and French fries and drinking soda, I'll get my health back. That makes it worthwhile to set aside my sugar habit.'

The entire team agrees that Santa must severely restrict or eliminate his consumption of all refined sugars and carbohydrates in order to beat type-2 diabetes. "Together, we hope to see Santa reinvigorate his health by boosting consumption of fresh produce, plant-based oils and targeted nutritional supplements that include chromium and trace minerals," said Mike Adams. "Combined with frequent exercise, we expect to see Santa experience a rapid reversal of type-2 diabetes."

Fresh, organic produce is now being delivered to the North Pole, where Santa is using a Vita-Mix blender to make his own nutrient-rich smoothies from fruits, vegetables, nuts and superfoods.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
