Never have I raised the ire of more readers as when I did a video with Dr. Kirt Tyson, one of Dr. Gabriel Cousens’ 30 diabetics he treated in the documentary and wellness program Simply Raw. Dr. Tyson told me he is a clearly Type 1 diabetic, who is off insulin except on the occasion he […]

Type 1 diabetes: is it a life sentence? Part 2 of 2

As I have mentioned, I get hate mail when I talk about diabetes using words like “reversal.” Traditional endocrinologists have convinced Type 1 diabetics that there is absolutely nothing you can do if given that diagnosis.

In Denver this summer, I met Lisa, who was, not long ago, completely debilitated by Lupus. Here’s her story, in 4 minutes, that I hope inspires you, if you have an auto-immune condition, to change your nutrition. (Sorry it was windy, which affected the sound. TURN IT UP!) I have been studying the methods of […]

Emily: pregnant, diabetic, and HEALTHY in Colorado

I met this really cool girl in Castle Rock, Colorado last weekend. She was dying to tell me about how my homemade granola, chocolate beet cake, green smoothies, and other whole-foods habits and recipes have helped her THRIVE going into her third pregnancy. This is radically different than her first two, which were a scary […]

I have a close friend who rents my basement apartment. Jean is a 46-year old mom of 3 and a Type 1 diabetic since age 16. As with all of my friends, I never undertook to try to convince her to eat whole foods, but she’s in my kitchen a lot and sees what I […]
