Diabetes affects more than 23 million people in the US. Most diabetics are treated with medications or insulin injections to “control” their diabetes, yet they still develop the complications of the condition. Diabetes is considered to be the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. 1 in every 4 adults over age 65 has diabetes.“The health professionals have failed to teach people about the true nature of diabetes,” says Dr. John Poothullil. “This is now a national epidemic that is dangerous and costly. Although there is awareness about diabetes, people are unaware that it is truly preventable and reversible by a simple change in diet.” After 20 years of study, Dr. John Poothullil, MD, discovered that there is a serious error in the medical science about the cause and treatment for diabetes. His new book explains it: the theory of insulin resistance is incorrect. Diabetes is not caused by the body becoming resistant to its own natural hormone insulin, as medical science has accepted. “Sometimes medical science is wrong and must make a correction,” Poothullil argues. He points to the fact that pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars off diabetes medications and are not willing to support research that might prove it wrong. “People are given, medications and injections to treat insulin resistance,” Poothullil says, “but insulin resistance has never been scientifically proven. It is an illogical and inconsistent theory when you look at the biology of the body.” Grain farmers, food companies and other commercial enterprises also profit from activities based on the incorrect theory about diabetes. From his research, Poothullil can show that diabetes is caused by the consumption of grains – including wheat, barley, rice, oats, corn, and the many products made with the flour of these grains. When people excessively consume grains, it fills their fat cells and eventually forces a normal body metabolism to go haywire, leaving glucose in the bloodstream. This causes high blood sugar—and when that continues for a long period of time, it results in diabetes. “This analysis of diabetes makes far more sense than insulin resistance. It explains why diabetes is spreading in countries like China, India, England, and the US where grain is a major portion of the diet. It explains why younger and younger adults, even teenagers, are developing diabetes, given their diets of pizza, sandwiches, snack foods, cakes, muffins, doughnuts and so many products that contain grains. It also explains why some pregnant women get gestational diabetes and shed it within days after giving birth,” Poothullil states. Recognizing the link between grains and high blood sugar is the key to preventing and reversing diabetes. His book shows people how they can follow 8 simple steps to change their diet, learn to stop overeating, and develop new approaches to maintaining their weight. “Diabetes can be reversed in as short a time as 8 weeks,” Poothullil says. “People do not need to go on special diets, other than avoiding grains. They do not need to buy any special products, such as the many things sold on TV or in magazines. Most of all, people do not need to live the rest of their lives taking medications or injecting insulin; all it takes is eating as little as possible of grains and grain-flour foods.” This is Dr. Poothullil’s second book. The first, Eat Chew Live: 4 Revolutionary Ideas to Prevent Diabetes, Lose Weight & Enjoy Food, on preventing diabetes, maintaining body weight and enjoying food intake was published in 2015. This book is focused on reversing diabetes for those who already have it.

Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes without Drugs
Until Dr. Barnard's scientific breakthrough, most health professionals believed that once you developed diabetes, you were stuck with it--and could anticipate one complication after another, from worsening eyesight and nerve symptoms to heart and kidney problems. But as this groundbreaking work reveals, this simply is not true. In a series of studies--the most recent funded by the National Institutes of Health--Dr. Barnard has shown that it is possible to repair insulin function and reverse type 2 diabetes. By following his scientifically proven, life-changing program, diabetics can control blood sugar three times more effectively than with the standard diet; and cut back on and in some cases eliminate medications while reducing the risk of diabetes complications.
