Gabriel Cousens book There is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program is a comprehensive guide not to living with diabetes but for learning how to live without it. It is, as the author explains, about embracing a culture of life rather than a culture of death. In reading this book, do not expect an approach of moderate changes to your lifestyle adding this, or subtracting that this is about total physical and spiritual transformation. Are you ready?
The first half of the book looks at the medical science of diabetes to establish the basis for the Tree of Life 21 Day protocol. It is rich in information to help you understand the why and how of this method. This scientific grounding will no doubt also assist you later when you need justify to the world around you why you are taking such a radical approach, eliminating most, if not all, cooked foods and thereby seizing control of your own wellbeing. The second half of the book shows you how to do it.
If you are skeptical that this method works, I urge you to watch the movie Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days. The movie takes place at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, Arizona and follows six individuals with type one and type two diabetes under Dr. Cousens care. By the end of 30 days, all who stuck with the program have either eliminated medications and insulin use completely or dramatically reduced them. This book is a further refinement of the treatment these individuals underwent, enabling you to take charge of your health at home.
The program itself can be daunting to tackle on your own without the support of the Tree of Lifes medical and culinary staff, but if you begin by implementing even a few of the changes recommended (some of the easiest are on pages 285-288), you will see such a dramatic improvement it will no doubt inspire you to begin the journey, which as all journeys do, begins with the first step.
