Reversing Diabetes: Discover the natural way to take control of type 2 diabetes

It is possible to manage and even reverse diabetes through natural means, and in Reversing Diabetes, Dr. Colbert shows you how.

Most people view diabetes as a dead-end street—once you receive a diabetes diagnosis, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Dr. Colbert shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like healthy food and vitamins rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. He shows you how to manage your weight and your glucose intake with a whole-body approach, using nutritional supplements along with dietary and lifestyle 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.

Based on the same life-changing principles of the low-glycemic, high-fiber eating plan provided in Dr. Colbert’s New York Times best-selling book, Dr. Colbert’s “I Can Do This” Diet, this book adapts that plan in a way that makes it ideal for diabetics who need to manage their glucose levels and their weight.

  1. Reversing Diabetes- through approach “Reversing Diabetes” by Don Colbert, MDDr. Colbert has compiled so much information about type 2 diabetes and published it in a very readable book. Many people have type 2 or may develop it as they age. Type 2 can often be controlled by a change in lifestyle including diet and activity level. This book starts with a complete discussion of diabetes and its causes. This is followed by lengthy chapters about food and how it affects the body and diabetes. And finally Dr. Colbert concludes with his Rapid Waist Reduction Diet.Through out the book there are sidebars with tid bits of information that supports the main body of text. He sprinkles in personal stories of people who have conquered their type 2 issues. These are quite encouraging.The Rapid Waist Reduction Diet is quite complicated and very restrictive. This diet would not be easy to cook with foods in most people’s panty, it would take special shopping and cooking. When cooking for a large family (like I have) this would be a bit of a challenge, as the diet is not adequate for growing children or athletes, both of which live in my house. And some of the recipes do not very appetizing to me, but some of the others look pretty good. And part of the weight reduction program includes using hcG- known as the pregnancy hormone. There is relatively little discussion of this component of the diet routine, although it appears to be a major component.Conclusions: I do not have type 2 diabetes, so I was not overly compelled to adopt this approach, but I read the book with the mindset that I did need to address the type 2 issue. The book had a lot of information! It would be a good book to read when starting to navigate the type 2 journey. I would also read other books to get another opinion of methods of treatment and lifestyle. I thought the discussion of activity (author does not like the word exercise) was a bit slim, but it was addressed well.Disclaimer: Charisma House provided me a copy of this book to review. All opinions expressed are my own.

  2. Learning about diabetes Reversing Diabetes by Don Colbert, M.D.I requested this book because the cover said, “Discover the natural way to take control of type 2 diabetes…” While I am sure some readers will pick up this book, believe they have found some help in controlling their diabetes and be very happy and satisfied with what they are learning, I am not one of them. I was looking for a book that would give the reader some practical, day to day help. I didn’t find much of this.I was also disappointed when the author began promoting nutritional supplements available through his website and that are not readily available in all areas. I am not questioning the value of the nutritional supplements Dr. Colbert refers to and am sure his patients have found them a great help in getting control of their type 2 diabetes.While there is a lot of good information in Reversing Diabetes, there is also a lot of information that was above my head. I got lost in the technical side of things. I could care less about reading some of the facts that are interspersed through the book when I am looking for something that is easy to read and can give me suggestions that will improve my health.There are recipes and menus for the Rapid Waist Reduction Diet that would work for an individual, but would mean cooking a separate meal for the rest of a family. Some of the foods mentioned would also exceed some family budgets. More helpful were the lists of approved foods for the two phases of the Diet. There were also tips for eating out and grocery shopping that were also informative and well as useful.I received this book for free from Charisma House for this review. The opinions expressed are solely mine.

  3. Don’t Lose the Battle Against Diabetes In Reversing Diabetes, Don Colbert revealed the epidemic concerning the growing number of patients diagnosed with diabetes. He shared the following statistics from the 2011 CDC report, “nearly twenty-six million people have diabetes, or 8.3 percent of the US population” (Page 11). Diabetes has increased rapidly because of the chemicals that are being produced in our foods. Another reason is our society is becoming inactive and not doing any activities that promote good health. The book will teach readers what kinds of foods are healthy and what foods that they will need to avoid. He discussed the hidden contributors that lead to obesity and diabetes. The book also contains a meal plan to guide readers in reducing their waist size. Reducing your waist size lowers your chance of getting diabetes and it helps to control diabetes if you already have it.I don’t have diabetes but it runs in my family blood line. I learned a great deal of information about taking steps to prevent getting diabetes. I would recommend this book to everyone because it is an extremely important topic that we all have to stand up against. Diabetes can happen to anyone and the book helped me to see the effects and dangers of consuming all the wrong types of foods. The book suggested starting to drink green tea because it assisted in relieving stress levels and scorching fat! “The EGCG in green tea increases the metabolic rate for as long as twenty-four hours and stimulates the body to burn fat” (Page 121). It also helps decrease your risk of getting diabetes and some cancers! I took the book’s advice and have started drinking a few cups a day. I am also started eating healthier foods and working out four days a week. This book is a wonderful guide in becoming healthy and living a long life!Charisma House has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
