Could This Really be Working!?


With my appointment approaching for my next A1C and full bloodwork up results, I was dreading being put on insulin, which I knew was going to happen because I couldn't get my sugar under control. A week ago I was flipping through the channels and started watching a program on PBS about reversing diabetes. With Ken's full support, I plunged into the vegan lifestyle, and can't believe the difference this has made in my life. I have started a blog diary of this journey, and welcome you to follow along on this amazing trip! Please come over, and I welcome you comments!

Wow, wow, wow Laurie! This is so very exciting to hear. I read through your diary and was amazed as well. Heck, if this is what it takes, you KNOW it will be SOOOOO worth it girl. I see people every day with advanced diseases due to their sugars being out of control for years, and I so admire your taking control of your health like this. YOU GO GIRL!!!!

The BEST thing you could have done!!!Laurie ~ every ailment I have ever had including hyperthyroid ~ was cured through prayer and going organic ~ also having greens the centerpiece of my diet!
I do tend to revert back to my old way which I have to work on but I know this will be the answer for you!!! 3 cheers for you!!!!!
Organic Noni seems to do wonders ~ I get it by the case on line.

Hi Laurie..
well isn't that interesting..
I have been type 2 diabetic for a few years and always had perfect readings using the Metformin orall medication. I got sick last year and had to take prednisone which shot my readings up into the 20's.
I was put on insulin which got things back to normal... Presently I am weaning off the insulin and as I lose the weight caused by the prednisone, things are looking better. HOWEVER... I do notice my readings are better when I don't eat meat..... Interesting....
I will check out your other blog with interest.....
thanks for sharing this info..
xoxo
((((hugs))))

Good for you. I can't read your blog diary for some reason, will be going back to try again. I am glad that you have found something that works for you. I always feel better when I eat "right" why I don't do it all the time, baffles me. Keep it up!
