Diabetes Without Drugs: The 5-Step Program to Control Blood Sugar Naturally and Prevent Diabetes Complications

Based on breakthrough studies, Cohen’s program reveals how people with diabetes can
reduce their need for prescription medication and minimize the disease’s effect on the body.
Most doctors consider diabetes a one-way street—once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. She shifts the focus away from glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms.
This 5-step program uses natural alternatives, such as drinking nutrition-packed green drinks, adding vitamin D and anti-inflammatory supplements, increasing fiber intake, and including minerals in the diet to help restore the body’s own supply of insulin. Diabetes without Drugs explains how patients can protect their heart, kidneys, eyesight, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and shows the impact that the right foods and the right supplements can make in reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and restoring vibrant health to everyone with diabetes.

  1. A Very Good Reference Book I’m still in the process of reading this book, which I initially bought for a friend who has diabetes, but the book is turning out to be so good that I just ordered a second copy for myself.I am particularly enjoying chapter 13, where Suzy lists quite a few natural nutrients/herbs that can be used to lower one’s blood sugar. She does a really nice job in this chapter by not only listing the various recommended herbs/nutrients, but also:(1) what that herb/nutrient does, (2) how to supplement (even naming preferred brands), and (3) side effects and cautions. This book also has a chapter of recipes for the diabetic, and a chapter compiling the recommended sources of various herbs/nutrients mentioned in earlier chapters.I will be keeping my copy of this book handy, ready to pull off the shelf whenever I need to refresh my memory on certain aspects of diabetes should I need to help another friend treat his or her diabetes without drugs. This book pretty much covers all aspects of diabetes in its substantial collection of 418 pages of information, so in my mind this is a good reference book to have on hand.

  2. Real Information for Real Results There is a wealth of advise and information in Diabetes Without Drugs. Suzy Cohen does an excellent job of breaking it all down into sensible material–the section on “drug muggers” alone has made a huge difference for me on a daily level. I’ve been on Metformin for 3 years and have suffered intense gastro-intestinal problems on a daily basis. This left me exhuasted and depleted of energy.I realized through this book that the artificial sugars hidden in virtually all low-fat, non-fat or no added sugar products was contributing to my propblems and actually didn’t help my blood sugar levels. After dumping all of those products and returning to eating the real thing–just less of it, I feel so much better.The real flavor of foods with no hidden artificial sugars is much more satisfying.Within the first few days, I stopped having the gastro-intestinal issues that I have suffered through for so long. The super green drinks of the first part of the program has energized me as I have not felt for years. I feel so much better and I’m eating real food–all day long. No more lows and highs– My blood sugar levels do not spike throughout the day and my fasting levels came down 25% after the first week alone. I haven’t felt this good in years. For the last few years, exercise made me exhuasted, now I feel energized and I’ve already lost weight without really trying.I was never a tea drinker before trying out the different teas she recommends. Now I drink pots of the stuff because the teas have made such a difference in my energy levels during the day (Yerba Mate) and soothe me to sleep before bedtime (Tulsi). I still enjoy my coffee in the morning, but Yerba Mate gives me a great amount of energizing clarity as oppossed to coffee jitters from too much of the bean.I know I’ve only scratched the surface of this book, but so far the results have been amazing–for me. I do think she goes a bit over-board with all things non-gluten and since I have no issues with those types of allergies–I’ll stick to whole grain breads. I started making my own so I could control what was in it.Diabetes is an awful affliction and the road down this disease is filled with more medications and more complications. This book has lots of information and advice that can really help lessen–or possibly in some cases–help one off of the diabetes medication merry-go-round.There’s no miracle or quick fix offered in Diabetes without Drugs–but for someone who is prepared to be serious about trying–the possibility of lowering meds or freeing onself of having to take them at all–becomes a reachable goal. At the very least, Suzy Cohen offers excellent advice on how to prevent diabetes complications down the road–a road that is pretty downhill for most diabetics who don’t heed the warning signs.
