Success! Reversing Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cholestrol With Plants

Yea Baby! The plan is working! Eat Organic Plants! Juice organic vegetables! And heal yourself! Here is the proof from my most recent lab results and doctor visits. These numbers clearly show that changing what you put into your body has an impact on many key areas of health. By changing just the "quality" of the food you eat, it is possible to change unhealthy body conditions without pharmaceuticals. The super good part is that this food tastes so much better than the old way of eating! I love this food adventure! 

These changes are for a hypothyroid patient who was told on many occasions by doctors, that she would never lose the weight that the low metabolism disease had caused. Last June when this chronically diseased body's low metabolism weight gain had caused me to turn into a diabetic, I said, "enough!" What can I do?" I watched two important documentaries, "Simply Raw," and "Fat, Sick, And Nearly Dead." Go to my "Inspiration To Begin page" and "Diabetic Tips" Pages to learn more about these films.

I found my answer to regaining my health and quality of life, in organic produce! Yum! I am so excited with these changes that are happening, especially my energy level! Now going into the next phase of my plan, I will add exercise, as I realize this addition will be an important improvement to my health as well. Now that I am lighter, I actually feel like I could start moving my body in new ways. So remember I did all these changes as a hypothyroid low metabolism body type with no exercise. It can be done! And most people can do it even quicker if they do not have thyroid issues. Did I mention I am never hungry!?! There are always good foods you can snack on!

Yesterday I ran around my house chasing my 3 year old granddaughter in a game of tag! A year ago I couldn't get up off the sofa, or walk across a room. This improvement is huge! Today during my endocrinologist appointment he told me I was a really good patient! That's because of all the personal interest I take in what is going on with my body, keeping my medical records binder, and of course my fantastic success with eating mostly plants! He said things are still going to improve with me! Whoo hoo! Give me a shiny star!

I began to change my diet to be mostly organic plants, and juicing vegetables in June 2011. Here are the results:
