how many have looked at a raw vegan diet...? nothing cooked over 118*... when you heat food it changes the molecular structure of the food... (the difference between uncooked corn on the cob and high fructose corn syrup is HEAT...!
i have been on insulin for 46 years... with a RAW / Vegan diet i have reduced my insulin from 70 units per day to less then 30 units in 2 weeks... the glycemic index of vegies and fruit is really low when it is raw...
check out this link:

this is working for me.. i believe i can heal... all of the type 2 diabetics on this are cured... 2 of the type 1 diabetics no longer need insulin injections...
diabetes is your choice..! i choose not to be diabetic any more.. it's RAW /VEGAN for me...

I think it's great that a raw diet worked for you but I disagree completely that diabetes is a choice. I did not choose to get this disease at age 21 in college. Perhaps some type 2's can reverse it but I do not believe type 1s can reverse it completely with diet alone - yes, we can reduce the amount of insulin we take but I think the idea of using diet and no insulin is risky long-term and a raw diet is very hard to maintain longterm and for most people, not very appealing. Again, great that you can do it but I just don't think it's fair to say this disease is a choice, who would chose this?

Amen! When my daughter was dx'd at 6 they tested her insulin production. She was making none, nada, zip. At that point the told us that she would have a maximum of 3 days if she ever went off insulin. That is 3 days till she died. Definitely not a choice. And be careful who you tell that your raw diet is a cure. You may be responsible for killing someone.

hello.. i want to apologize for upsetting you..i just found out after 46 years of type 1 insulin dependance that my C-Peptide revealed that i am producing a very small amount of insulin.. not all type 1 do...again i stress testing often and adjusting as you always do...
i have asked to be removed from this site... didn't realize the hate mail that i would receive from people after giving my testimonial...i only wish you all the success that i have gotten from this..remember to test... robb

you asked, "who would choose this..?" i was born 46 years ago i was dxed at 13 months.. i believe if there is a possibility to self heal through a raw vegan diet it is worth it... the answer to your question is, ..those who won't try when there is a possibility ... every action you take in this life is a choice... much love.. robb

i want to let you know that i have asked to be removed from this site...i didn't realize that giving personal testimony was so dangerous.. i wish you all the best health..and a happy life..i apologize for my response to your using a LOL to describe how you viewed what i was trying to say...i felt threatened and didn't respond well..i only want the best for you... again..remember to test..test..test your blood sugars and live a long and healthy life... good bye for now.. robb

Sadly, this raw vegan program does not seem to pass the smell test. This movie, produced by the new age guru Gabriel Cousens claims that a raw vegan diet reverse and cures diabetes. It originally claimed that it cured T1, but they changed that, it was just too over the top and I believe it invited lawsuits. I've written about Gabriel Cousens a number of times before. I consider him a charlatan and a shill for PETA and overall a dangerous man for diabetics. He has had his medical license revoked and been indicted for causing the death of one of his patients. He advocates what can be best described as "woo" (basically magic). An evaluation of his program basically debunks his program.

I am not against vegan or vegetarian diets. My daughter is a vegetarian and I have diabetes T1 and T2 friends here who very successfully eat a vegetarian diet. But this diet does not cure diabetes of any kind, let alone T1. I am glad you have had success, but if you want to make claims here you need to have something more substantial than spin piece from the hinky Gabriel Cousens funded by Neal Barnard of PCRM/PETA fame.
