Among the core ideas behind the raw food diet, which practitioners prefer to call the raw food lifestyle, is the belief that other than a few genetically inherited abnormalities, there is only one illness: toxemia. The theory is that toxemia, an uncleanness of the blood and tissues, is caused mainly because of poor diet and lifestyle.
According to Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, founder of the US-based non-profit cooperative Rawfully Organic, it is toxemia that manifests into all other disease conditions that arise in the body.
And so what the raw food lifestyle aims to do is not load the body with toxic residue, allowing the body instead, to clean its blood, tissue and organs and thus eliminate the need for most medicines.
In fact, a glimpse into raw food websites will tell you that the human body reacts to cooked food or food heated above 47 degrees Celsius the same way that it reacts to foreign pathogens.
The only way to overcome this, say experts, is by including more raw food into the diet as a lifestyle choice.
According to fullyraw.com , a raw food diet is made up of fresh, whole, unrefined, living, plant-based foods: fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds, which are consumed in their natural state, without cooking or steaming. People who adopt this diet are often referred to as raw fooders or raw vegans.

Chef Charles Mattocks On Creating The First Diabetes Docu-Series

Chef Charles Mattocks On Creating The First Diabetes Docu-Series

Celebrity chef, Charles Mattocks is on a mission to change the face of diabetes. Nephew of the late reggae legend Bob Marley, Charles is bold and a zealous champion of the cause. The award winning producer, turned international diabetes advocate is gearing up to witness his long-awaited vision become a reality - in the creation of Reversed: the first diabetes docu-series, to air on Discovery Life Channel in July.
Filmed at the exquisite Millbrooks Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Charles brought together five guests struggling with diabetes, along with health experts to support them.
In a recent conversation, Charles discussed with me his relentless commitment to bettering the lives of those with diabetes, as well as his own personal struggle with the condition.
SD: So, Charles we've just finished shooting the show and I was thrilled to be part of your expert team as the nutritionist and diabetes educator. Am eager to hear how it all began. What was the inspiration?
CM: It all started when I was diagnosed 8 years ago. I didn't know much about diabetes and thought I was going to die. It was lonely and scary. I took it upon myself to search online and felt lost with the overwhelming amount of information. I decided to document my experience to better understand my journey. I refused to accept that this couldn't be beaten. I knew I needed to lose weight and change my diet and start exercising. And, it was this change in lifestyle that changed my vision. My uncle, Bob Marley inspired my vision. Like him, I want to leave something very special for others and I feel this is my way Continue reading

Natural Solutions for Diabetes - Dr. Pompa
Home Additional Resources Health Tips Natural Solutions for Diabetes
While diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions, the prevailing methods to treat this disease are often ineffective and even harmful. Many doctors will tell you that diabetes is a chronic, progressive disease, and that very little can be done to maintain health over time. But there is hope for people with diabetes, and the solution may be simpler than you think.
Dr. Jason Fung recently joined us on Cellular Healing TV to talk about the epidemic of diabetes and a natural approach to fixing it. Dr. Fung earned his medical degree at the University of Toronto where he also completed his internal medicine residency before heading to the University of California, Los Angeles, for his fellowship in nephrology. He currently practices as a kidney specialist in Toronto.
During the course of treating thousands of patients, it became clear to Dr. Fung that the epidemic of type 2 diabetes and obesity was getting worse. The prevailing dietary recommendations to reduce dietary fat and calories were clearly ineffective. He founded The Intensive Dietary Management Program to provide a unique treatment focus for type 2 diabetes and obesity. Rather than focusing on medications, this clinic focuses on dietary and lifestyle changes that are simple yet effective. Before we get into Dr. Fungs strategy, lets step back and talk first about what we know about the disease.
First of all, its important to differentiate between type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetics are severely l Continue reading

Vaccine in Sight for Type 1 Diabetes? - Ausmed

Vaccine in Sight for Type 1 Diabetes? - Ausmed

And unfounded beliefs such as insulin causing organ damage
Research has been conducted for a number of decades into alternative treatment types for replacing the lost insulin, such as insulin pumps, however they still rely on patients being compliant with treatment. In some cases, insulin pumps are only available to a minority of sufferers such as young children who may not be able to comply with an injection regime.
An ideal alternative would be to block the immune cells from attacking the pancreas, whilst leaving the rest of the immune system untouched but immunosuppressants would leave sufferers more vulnerable to infection.
A vaccine seems to be the most promising solution and something a number of research teams have been working on. Although vaccine research and development is taking place around the world, and has been for quite a while, so far there have been mixed results.
The Pre-Point early vaccination entered its second clinical trial in October 2016.
The vaccine took the form of powdered insulin administered orally with food, to children aged between two and seven. Believing that T1DMmay be prevented by sensitising the immune system to insulin (which is often the first target of the autoimmune response causing the condition), the trial administers the vaccine to children identified as having high risk of developing diabetes, and a positive immune response had been observed in the first stage.
Another promising vaccine study lies with the research funded by Bayhill Therapeutics.
This study was carried out by a team of researchers from Europe, the US, Continue reading

My dead pancreas: 'My diabetes diagnosis is celebrating its 20th birthday'
I inject myself roughly eight times a day and I dont always behave myself around doughnuts or fried cheese, writes Caitrona Daly.

Caitrona Daly Playwright, blogger and type one diabetic
I WAS DIAGNOSED with type one diabetes in May 1997. Maths geniuses out there may now have surmised that my diagnosis is celebrating its 20th birthday and I felt I should probably mark it in some way, given that on its tenth birthday I was probably too busy drinking Tesco vodka in a UCD bathroom.
Because, yes, diabetics like to get drunk too. We like to gorge on doughnuts, get high on yokes, and eat a Dominoes meal for three in a single sitting.
The difference is that if Im not careful I could legitimately die.
I fully accept that a perfectly healthy human being could also die from any or all of these activities. The main difference for a diabetic is that it would be like playing a football match when you dont have a foot, or feet for that matter. Hence, youd probably just fall over, cry a little and then, be forcefully removed from the playing field.
I like to use analogies a lot when I talk about diabetes. This is mainly because nobody seems to really know what its about, except that it means youre fat.
I am slightly overweight at best; I am not fat. This did not, however, save me from the complexities that come with being a teenager who has diabetes.
I realised early on that every time I informed someone of my Continue reading
