Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugsby Neal D. Barnard
Synopses & Reviews
Until Dr. Barnards scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it—and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies—the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health—Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.
"The long overdue epic scientific breakthrough in diabetes is here…an obvious must-read for health professionals and for diabetic and potential diabetic patients." —Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD, preventive cardiology consultant, Cleveland Clinic
"This is the approach to follow…the clinically proven way to get your blood sugar under control… and start living again."—John McDougall, MD, founder and medical director of the McDougall program
"Dr. Barnards book is no exaggeration…The signs and symptoms of diabetes can be reversed, and hes got the evidence to prove it."—Jennie Brand-Miller, PhD, author of The New Glucose Revolution
From Our Staff:
As a newly diagnosed type II diabetic, I did a lot of research on how to "tackle" this disease the right way. I discovered that a vegan diet has recently proven to have the best and fastest results in defeating and reversing diabetes. This book explains diabetes in layman's terms, and is based on scientific studies involving both type I and type II diabetics. Already a vegetarian for several years, I found the move to veganism relatively easy, and saw immediate results. My blood sugar is under control, I've lost weight, and my blood pressure is back down to normal. Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes offers a simple-to-follow plan that requires none of the usual counting of various food groups or calories. You are never hungry, and the bonus for me is that most of my cravings have disappeared.
Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven program, diabetics can control blood sugar more effectively than with the standard diet, and cut back on--and in some cases eliminate--medications.
Until now, most health professionals have considered diabetes a one-way street. Once you developed it, you were stuck with it--and you could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems.
Enter Dr. Neal Barnard, who through a series of groundbreaking studies, the latest funded by the National Institute for Health, has shown it doesn't have to be that way. By following the diet outlined in this book, readers can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the American Diabetes Association's diet and beyond that improve their bodies' ability to respond to insulin--in effect reversing the defining symptom of the disease. And there's more. Study participants lost weight, were able to cut back on and sometimes even discontinue medications, and left behind tedious exchange plans for delicious foods in generous portions.
It's a new way to treat diabetes.
