- Four years ago a young men was diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure. Taking insulin and high blood pressure pills was inevitable.
By consuming raw fruits and vegetables he succeeded in overcoming his illness!
He discovered accidentally only 4 years ago that he had diabetes. Namely, he constantly felt thirst. When he went to the doctor he was in for quite a shock. They measured his sugar to be 29 and they told him that his pancreas was no longer working and that he wouldn’t be able to live without insulin.
He came to terms with his diabetes. Even though he accepted it reluctantly he took insulin regularly and participated in some sports activities. However, over time other medical issues appeared. His triglyceride levels increased up to 16, his pressure was up to 150/100, he drank a lot of pills.
On New Years Eve of 2013 he decided that he had enough illnesses and turned a new page as he said he turned on the TV and saw the show “The Edge of Science” in which the guest was Dr. John Zirdum who for 12 years lived on raw foods.
He watched the show and after giving it some thought he decided to give it a try. He bought a blender and started a new life.
For seven days he had the same temptations and all of them were successfully overcome. In a very short period of time there were the first results. His blood sugar level dropped to 5.
He could not believe it. He decided not to take insulin anymore, because it was only logical that by maintaining such a diet sugar levels were unlikely to increase. He was also thinking that if blood sugar levels were to increase eventually he would take insulin. But all was well. Soon enough he began losing weight.
Every day he weighed a kilo less. For some 25 days he lost 11 kg. Four months have passed since he decided to shift to raw food and he became completely a new man.
