There Is A Cure For Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21+ Day Program by Dr. Gabriel Cousens provides workable strategies to bring diabetics within a normal range of blood sugar quickly by dietary changes. The changes emphasize organic foods which are nutrient dense, vegetables and fruits, low-glycemic, low-insulin scoring, and high in mineral content.

Diabetes is a condition which can be managed assuming that the patient follows strict dietary protocols. There is no cure for diabetes other than a strict protocol for managing the disease. The author’s protocol assumes a permanent change
in lifestyle.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is known to protect against small blood vessel damage according to Cousens. Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is known to reverse damage to peripheral nerves.

The author explains that the largest concentration of diabetics are in India, China, and the United States. Diabetes is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. Once indigenous peoples experienced foods with high white sugar content, high flour and little exercise, the number of diabetics rose significantly. Insulin literally drives excess fat into the cells. No heart disease has appeared when the total cholesterol has been under one hundred fifty.

Cousens provides specific examples of anti-diabetic foods. Examples are vegetables, sea vegetables, tomato, avocado, flax oil, Klamath Lake blue-green algae, chlorella, stevia, and cinnamon. Increased protein may be found in nuts, seeds, maca, beans, quinoa and kelp.

Cousens provides ample evidence of the various disease stages in humans. Diseases progress from enervation to toxemia, irritation and pain, inflammation, tissue destruction, induration or hardening of tissues and fungation of cells
anaerobically. Strategic dietary changes can alter this equation dramatically in favor of the patient.

There Is A Cure For Diabetes is a practical guide on how to reduce the debilitating aspects of diabetes utilizing natural foods and nutrients. The presentation is easy to read with plenty of data to support the author’s contentions. In addition, these protocols have significant implications for reducing the cost of managing diabetes. 

There is an extensive reference section with research citations from the Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute and
Hypertension amongst many others. Patients should utilize these protocols with the knowledge and concurrence of their physicians and other health care providers.
