Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Greetings from the BAC Clinic! As some of you know, we like movies here at the BAC Clinic. If you’ve ever waited for amassage at our clinic, there is usually some sort of educational, or well intentioned inspirational movie playing while you wait. Now because we are not in the business of making people wait and watch movies, it is rare that an individual gets to watch a movie in its entirety. People will often ask us about the movies we play, so we felt it would be beneficial to just share a link on the internet so our more technologically inclined patients can view the movie sat their leisure. "Simply Raw:Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days." Are you a diabetic? Are you interested in curing yourself of diabetes? Simply Raw explores a handful of type 1 and 2diabetics who volunteer to stay at a retreat in Arizona where they were allowed to eat only raw food. Simply Raw shows the incredible role food plays in our daily lives. In the words of Hippocrates, the founder of modern medicine, “let they food be thy medicine, and thy medicine bethy food.” Like any addict, the patients go through highs, lows, withdrawls, denial, and doubt. Ultimately these patients detoxify their bodies for 30 days, while leaning on each other for inspiration to adapt to a lifestyle that allows for their condition to reverse itself. Simply Raw will make you laugh, it will make you frown, it will make you cry, but most importantly it will inspire and empower you to live a happier, healthier life.

I Prefer My Food Dead, Thank You Very Much

I Prefer My Food Dead, Thank You Very Much

Most of the woo I write about, fortunately, I don’t have to deal with directly close to home. This is a good thing indeed, because it means that where I practice is blissfully free (for the most part) of pseudoscience. Unfortunately, earlier this year, I was in for an unpleasant surprise when I found out that there was going to be a showing of a rather annoying movie. It also occurred to me that I had never, to my memory, discussed the topic of this movie, namely the health claims of raw (“living”) food veganism. The vitalism at the heart of this movie and its accompanying “educational” DVD reminds me, more than anything else, The Beautiful Truth, which promoted the quackery that is the Gerson protocol. Whenever it occurs to me that there’s a major topic in health that I haven’t discussed in over six years of the existence of this blog, you know that sooner or later I have to rectify the situation. Unlike The Beautiful Truth, which was about the Gerson protocol and didn’t feature any big names, this movie, Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, features at least a couple of big names. These include Morgan Spurlock, who directed and starred in the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, which featured Spurlock eating nothing but McDonald’s food for 30 days and documented the effects that diet had on him, and actor and “raw food activist” Woody Harrelson. Both were interviewed for the movie, and a longer interview with Spurlock is featured as part of a promotional film series on the web that goes along with Simply Raw. Here are two trailers for the movie. First, trailer #1: Then, trailer #2: And here is the introduction to the Raw for Life DVD, a companion “A-Z encyclopedia” of “live food” veganism that is being sold as a companion piece to Simpl Continue reading >>

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Executive Producers: Keith Lyons and Scott Mader Producers: Leda Maliga and Aiyana Elliot DVD $29.95 "Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure. "-- The American Diabetes Association Simply Raw opens with the above statement emblazoned on a black screen in stark white lettering. In the next 90 minutes the filmmakers present a month-long saga that reveals the American Diabetes Association statement is not completely accurate. The basic premise of the film was to assemble a small group of diabetics, place them in a controlled environment, and feed them a raw diet for thirty days to demonstrate that diabetes could be reversed. The filmmakers selected six people whose ages ranged from 25 to 68 and sent them to the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, Arizona, where they embarked on a month-long raw lifestyle regimen under the direction of Dr. Gabriel Cousins. The meal plan for the group was a high-fiber, low-protein program with no bread, no cooked grains, no sugar, no caffeine, and nothing cooked over 118 degrees. Also absent from the diet were meat, chicken, fish, dairy products, alcohol, nicotine, soda, junk food, and packaged and processed food. Raw gourmet organic vegan meals were served three times daily and no limits were placed on how much each person could eat. Tree of Life chefs provided instruction on how to prepare foods like raw vegan burgers and nori rolls. Participants attended a Healthy Cooked Food Class on the last day of their month-long stay to help them make the transition to raw foods when they return home. Of the participants five were type 2 diabetics and one was type 1. Austin (age 25) was not only a type 1 diabetic, but he also had a drinking problem. Kirt (age 25) had a blood sugar reading of 1200. Normal is below 100. His doctor tol Continue reading >>

Simply Raw Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

This is an amazing documentary that shows the power of a plant-based diet and how by simply changing your diet to a raw vegan diet you can cure type 2 diabetes and better manage type 1 diabetes. In the United States, 1 in 3 people will have Type 2 diabetes by 2050 if current trends continue, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Currently, 1 in 10 Americans has Type 2 diabetes. But if new cases develop as projected, its prevalence could double or triple over the next 40 years, said Ann Albright, director of the Division of Diabetes Translation at the CDC. In this film they take several people who have battled diabetes for many years and put them on a raw vegan diet. Within days these people were lowering their level of insulin and within weeks many were completely off their diabetes drugs and diabetes free. Food really is medicine and when you eat from the earth and remove the foods that a western diet is based on and replace them with whole food, plant-based, organic foods many of our chronic conditions that we suffer from as a society can be reversed. Shut down big pharma and take back your health into your own hands. Who wants to live life dependent on medications, many of which lead to other diseases that can lower your life expectancy.

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Diabetes is a chronic disease that over 260 million deal with around the world. In the past ten years, type 2 diabetes has tripled in the United States alone. It’s a lifestyle disease that comes down to one thing; diabetes is caused by what you’re putting in your mouth. America has the most overweight people in the history of the human race, and 1 out of every three children born after the year 2000 will get diabetes. And what’s the reason? When you cook the food, you lose 50% of the protein, 70% to 80% of the vitamins and minerals, and close to 100% of the phytonutrients. The documentary Simply Raw follows six everyday Americans living with diabetes who set out to change their lifestyles by switching from their regular foods to an entirely vegan diet without the use of pharmaceutical medication. They set themselves a challenge for 30 days that will see them give up a list of foods including meat, dairy, sugar, soda, and all processed foods. The film captures not only the medical and physical transformations, but the emotional journey each challenged themselves to by switching to a raw diabetic diet, and how nature is truly the first medicine we should all be consuming. Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days documents each of the six individuals before they begin the program in their home environment. Each one speaks candidly about their everyday challenges of living with diabetes and how it has affected their daily lives, from work to home to their relationships. Continue reading >>

Movie Review: Simply Raw - Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Movie Review: Simply Raw - Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Is diabetes affecting your life, or the life of someone you know? Although this disease is encroaching epidemic proportions in some populations, we are living amidst some of the most empowering times when it comes to healing and preventing this disease altogether. In the groundbreaking documentary Simply Raw – Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, featuring some of the top medical and holistic experts of our times, we can learn how to do just that. Diabetes is on the rise in our populations today. The CDC estimates that about 8% of all Americans have diabetes, and in Canada estimates are at about 5% of diagnosed cases. In both countries estimates of undiagnosed cases range much higher. Amidst those numbers, almost double the numbers of people quoted above have pre-diabetes and in some populations, like the Native Americans 20% of the population, that is 1 in 5 people have been diagnosed with diabetes. Over the past few decades one thing is clear, type 2 diabetes is on the rise. According to Dr. Bisci, in the past decade alone, the numbers have tripled. What else is certain, is that type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease and it is a disease that not only decreases the quality of life, but often ends it prematurely. Many diabetics today think they have no choice and that pills and insulin shots are their only hope, but that is not true. Today science has proven, that diabetes, especially type 2 can be greatly decreased in its effects and often eradicated all together by diet. And it is for this reason that I am thrilled to share with you a valuable resource that can not only prevent diabetes for you in the future, but also perhaps save your life or the life of someone close to you today.

Simply Raw Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days

Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues Continue reading >>

Simply Raw: Making Overcooked Claims About Raw Food Diets

This week, I plan on taking on something that’s been sitting near the bottom of my “to do list” for several weeks now. Indeed, readers have been sending me links since November or so to what will be the topic of this week’s post, but something somehow has always managed to push it aside each weekend when the time came to sit down and start writing my weekly post for this blog. I was also motivated by noting that, even though we are now entering the fourth year of this blog’s existence (yes, as hard as it is to believe, we started way back in January 2008), no one has done a post specifically about this particular topic, although I have mentioned it in the past, in particular in my discussion of a movie about the Gerson protocol for pancreatic cancer over a year ago. This time around, I will be discussing a movie as well. Unlike The Beautiful Truth, which was about the Gerson protocol and didn’t feature any big names, this movie, Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, features at least a couple of big names. These include Morgan Spurlock, who directed and starred in the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, which featured Spurlock eating nothing but McDonald’s food for 30 days and documented the effects that diet had on him, and actor and “raw food activist” Woody Harrelson.
