Eliminating Diabetes

November 1, 2013

by Dr. Rich Snyder, DO

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. As an internist and kidney specialist, I am all “too aware” of the ravages of diabetes. I am all “too aware” of good people losing their eyesight, of limbs being lost and of people starting dialysis.

I don’t want you to be “aware” of diabetes. I don’t want you to “control” your diabetes. I want your goal to be to “eliminate” and “eradicate” diabetes.  If you have ever watched Dr.’s Robert O. Young, Mark Hyman or Dr. Joel Furhman on television, visited their websites or read their books, they are doing just that. They are eliminating diabetes. They are reversing heart disease.

They are doing what many other health professionals have said are impossible. The words “eliminate” and “eradicate” have replaced “control” and “regulate.”

Dr. Robert O. Young wrote The pH Miracle. By normalizing the body’s pH and eliminating acidity, he has helped many. Read the case stories in that book and you will be as amazed as I was.

Dr. Mark Hyman wrote The Blood Sugar Solution. I have read this book as well. There are stories of triumph over diabetes of people who have eliminated diabetes and who have gotten their lives back.

Dr. Joel Furhman wrote The End of Diabetes. He promotes nutrition as the way to end diabetes. Again, I urge you to read the inspirational stories of people in this book who have “ended diabetes.”

Notice the three words used in these titles. Miracle. Solution. End. The words control, regulate and aware are not found in these titles nor in these books.

What do these books have in common? Understanding the importance of nutrition to change body chemistry.  Increasing the consumption of a plant-based diet (Dr. Hyman and all three), the inclusion of micronutrients (Dr. Fuhrman) and the liberal consumption of juicing and alkaline water (Dr. Young).

If you do nothing else this month, I urge you to look at these books, understand how nutrition can change your body chemistry, and then have a talk with your doctor or health care provider about eliminating diabetes.

Don’t just be “aware.” Be proactive.
