Introduction

Even though diabetes is declared as incurable in the Wikipedia, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Dr. McDougall, Dr. Neil Barnard and many other doctors have shown that diabetes can be cured. Check out Dr. Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes without Drugs.

Most of the information listed here refers to type 2 diabetes. However, the damaging effects of type 1 diabetes can greatly be reduced by eating a whole-plant food diet. For more information on how to reduce insulin by up to 50% check out Dr. Fuhrman's book The End of Diabetes and watch the video Simply Raw.

Dr. Neil Barnard

Recommendable is Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes
If you have type 2 diabetes or are concerned about developing it, this program could change the course of your life. Although type 2 diabetes is a serious illness that all too often leads to heart problems, nerve damage, blindness, stroke, or kidney failure, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Plant Based Pharmacist

ILike most healthcare professionals, Dustin Rudolph, PharmD, entered the field of medicine with one goal in mind—to help his patients get healthy. As a pharmacist, Dr. Rudolph believed the best way to accomplish this was through pills, procedures, and surgeries. Boy, was he wrong! His story, life experiences, and professional expertise serve as the foundation for his  book.

Simply Raw

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is a powerful movie on reversing type 2 diabetes in 30 days and also shows the benefits a raw vegan diet has on type 1 diabetes. It chronicles six Americans with diabetes, who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, live, raw foods in order to reverse diabetes naturally. The participants are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food – as well as go without their loved ones and many of their creature comforts – for 30 days. The results are amazing.
