About the Book:

Diabetes has become a seemingly unstoppable national epidemic, affecting more than
twenty million Americans. Conventional wisdom calls it incurable, but renowned Dr.
Gabriel Cousens counters that claim with this breakthrough book. There Is a Cure for
Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of
diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. Dr. Cousenss method, widely tested
at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a
100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-
mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days.

Both practical and inspirational, the book explains how to abandon the widespread
culture of deathsymbolized by addictive junk foodthat fosters diabetes in favor of a
more natural, nurturing approach. The program renders insulin and related medicines
unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic
shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-
food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes. Dr. Cousens emphasizes regular
consultations, monitoring blood chemistries, and emotional support, and includes a one-
year support program to help maintain a diabetes-free life!

The Healing Synergy in Summary
In summary, a review of the results for reversing diabetes in 120 clients is that in

NIDDM Type-2 diabetics, theres a 61 percent cure rate in three weeks, which means 100

percent of people were off all medication and 61 percent had a blood sugar less than 100.

For IDDM Type-2s, 86 percent were off all medication and 24 percent were off all

diabetic medications and had a blood sugar of less than 100 in three weeks. In total, 97

percent of all Type-2s were off all diabetic medication in three weeks. Ten percent of

IDDM Type-1 diabetics and 31.4 percent of NIDDM Type-1 diabetics were medication

free in three weeks. Sixty-nine percent of NIDDM Type-1 diabetics were able to reduce

their medication intake by an average of 70 percent. After the three-week cycle, the

percentages of those cured increased for all types of diabetic conditions, the longer

patients stayed on the diet. As Ive attempted to explain, there is a multifaceted, holistic

synergy of reasons for these extraordinary results in the 120 people. This basic healing

synergy (in order of probable importance) is as follow:

1. The avoidance of all carbohydrates except leafy greens, nonstarchy and fibrous

vegetables, sprouts, and sea vegetables in the diet. This included the avoidance of all

grains, all sorts of sugars, white sugar, white flour, sweets, and sweeteners (except for

stevia and birch-tree, natural xylitol). This is a 3545 percent carbohydrate, slightly

ketogenic diet. This moderate-low carbohydrate diet either significantly decreased

and/or seemed to heal both insulin resistance and leptin resistance, which are the two
driving hormonal imbalances in diabetes, and also helped to ameliorate or heal the

metabolic syndrome of prediabetic state.

2. The power of a 100 percent live-food, plant-source-only, organic diet in the healing

of diabetes

3. An anti-inflammatory live-food diet in decreasing the metabolic para-inflammatory

condition. The use of live food decreased the para-inflammation by as much as

fivefold in three to four weeks. The use of Culture of Life Intenzyme, which is a high-

potency proteolytic enzyme to decrease inflammation, peri-ductal scaring, and beta

cell scaring and destruction, also aided in healing.

4. Significant weight loss, on the 3545 percent carbohydrate diet, of an average of

slightly more than 18 pounds in 21 days, with some losing up to 25 pounds in 1 week

and 46 pounds in 3 weeks. In JAMA (2007),[i] Stanford research produced the AZ

weight-loss diet. They showed that a high-fat, moderate-low-carbohydrate diet was

superior to the Dean Ornish low-fat diet. These Stanford researchers made a very

interesting statement: Many concerns have been expressed that low-carbohydrate

weight loss diet, high in total saturated fats, will adversely affect blood levels and

cardiovascular risk. These concerns have not been unsubstantiated in previous weight

loss studies. This is exactly what I found in my study with 120 people. In fact, as I

point out in my study, I saw a 24 percent drop in total cholesterol and also a drop in

LDLs by 54 percent. This JAMA 2007 research makes me feel very comfortable that
the diet that Im suggesting to reverse and/or cure Type-2 diabetes also raises HDLs,

lowers triglycerides, lowers LDLs, improves circulation, and helps the LDLs in Type-

1 diabetes become larger and more fluffy, therefore actually lowering the risk of heart

attack and decreasing the risk of developing metabolic syndrome, which is

prediabetic syndrome.

5. A plant-source-only diet, as described in Genesis 1:29, itself had an important effect,

as highlighted by the 12-study meta-analysis of 1,259,000 people that showed a 35

50 percent smaller risk for vegetarians versus omnivores for developing diabetics.

6. The use of all organic food, which minimizes negative effects of pesticides and

herbicides and heavy metals on insulin resistance and pancreas function

7. Moderate exercise

8. In a sense, its a sleeper! People need to get adequate sleep. People who had nights

without enough sleep, or minimal sleep, had blood sugars go up, even in one night.

Theres correlation between lack of sleep and increased FBS. I noticed it in myself as

well. My FBS is usually in the low 80s and increased after several nights of limited

hours sleeping by as much as 10 points.

9. The healing effects of meditation

10. Individualizing the diet type and phase type for optimal healing effects and long-term

90-percent compliance. In Phase 1.0, I recommend using approximately 2545

percent calories from fat, approximately 3545 percent from carbohydrates, and 10
25 percent protein in a live-food, plant-source-only diet (dependent upon individual

constitution) for three months of confirmed healing. I then recommend Phase 1.5, an

80100 percent live-food, plant-source-only maintenance diet with 4050 percent

carbohydrates, including some grains, beans, and low-glycemic fruit but no junk or

processed foods, white flour, white sugar, or trans fats.

11. The overall holistic effect of a 2545-percent fat-intake diet, including a drop in total

cholesterol to a safe, cardio-protective, mentally protective level of 159, and a cardio-

protective triglyceride count of 82. The use of all fats except for trans fats creates an

excellent macronutrient balance for minimizing carbohydrate intake and finding the

best protein intake for repairing and rebuilding the tissues and enzyme replacement.

The global long-term risks associated with a low-fat diet far outweigh any theorized

and unsubstantiated scientifically potential benefits of a low-fat diet.

12. Loving yourself enough to want to heal yourself and the use of a psycho-spiritual

approach to activate this

As I look at the overall clinical picture in the last 120 patients, my final thoughts

are that the Dr. Cousenss Diabetes Recovery ProgramA Holistic Approach has

become a way of life in which people feel healthier and happier on every level of their

lives. The Dr. Cousens Diabetes Recovery ProgramA Holistic Approach gives the

most efficacious results ever recorded in the literature at this time. It is my intention to

apply this program to at least two hundred Type-2 diabetics while using much more
rigorous monitoring in a full scientific research paradigm. After this, I am considering

doing a study with Type-1 diabetics.

The data collected from 120 participants (in this second edition) are certainly

more significant than the data collected from 11 participants (in the first edition). I feel

that there is enough data and that the issue is important enough, given the pandemic

nature of diabetes, to release my results at this time. I do so with an awareness that much

more research is needed to validate this theory and the results.

The big question is the human question: Can people sustain themselves in the

Culture of Life with a high degree of success? With highly motivated people there is a

high success rate, but as this is applied to a pandemic level in many cultures and

economic realities, I am looking very closely at support programs that will be desirable

and thus successful for all circumstances. This will require a lot of creativity to apply this

logical, common-sense breakthrough to national cultures worldwide, as I am now doing

in Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Peru, Argentina, and Mexico; with migrant farm workers in

the United States; with some Native Americans; and in Israel, to a limited extent. It is one

thing to develop a successful health program in a volunteer clinical setting like the Tree

of Life Rejuvenation Center but something else to create a program that is feasible for all

on a national basis.

The Culture of Death and corresponding diet causes diabetes and leads people to a

place where they feel at a point of no return once CDDS manifests as Type-2 diabetes
and the negative epigenetic and genetic programs have been activated. The sensible and

important awareness is that there is always the potential of a return. Paracelsus said, No

physician can ever say that any disease is incurable. To say so blasphemes God,

blasphemes Nature, and depreciates the great architect of Creation. The disease does not

exist, regardless of how terrible it may be, for which God has not provided the

corresponding cure.

In this context, the current so-called normal standard American diet is immoderate

and detrimental, as it directly contributes to the manifestation of diabetes. Previous

moderate diets have been shown to ameliorate and control diabetes to a limited degree.

The dramatic changes that result from my program do not come as the results of

practicing the conventional moderation approach of the Culture of Death, which in

essence is a way of making denial seem reasonable in this case. To make this kind of

significant change requires a lifestyle and diet that is dramatically and excitingly

different, resulting in powerful results in a short period of time. This requires leading a

life of love, purpose, meaning, and self-value, and choosing a diet and lifestyle that

reflect these values. This is the diet and lifestyle being taught in my program.

The essential question that is asked of participants is, Do you love yourself

enough to want to heal; and potentially add 10 to 19 healthy years to your life? The

results revealed in this book, for those who have answered this question in the

affirmative, show that the conventional paradigm for diabetesas labeled by the ADA
and most medical schools as incurableis a self-defeating myth. In all fairness, the

conventional paradigm also teaches that proper diet and exercise help slow the

progression of this incurable disease, but those adhering to the conventional paradigm

do not offer the proper diet and intensity to do the job. I have activated a new paradigm

that previous research has pointed toward by taking the next logical step, going deeper

into the underlying causes by seeing diabetes as a symptom of the Culture of Death.

By the Culture of Death, I am talking about a culture founded on predatory

competition in which people are economic commodities. The focus is on wealth for the

few versus health for the many. It is a culture of separateness, domination, and resulting

exploitation. In this culture, people have lost their soul connection and life purpose. This

is connected to the approximate 80 percent obesity rate in diabetics, for as previously

stated, there is never enough food for a hungry soul. The Culture of Death spawns a food

environment characterized by the heavy marketing of excitotoxin-rich processed junk

foods that are high in white sugar, white flour with alloxan, and refined carbohydrates,

and the heavy use of cooked animal fats and hydrogenated trans fats, agrochemical-laden

foods, and heavy-metal toxicity. These characteristics combine to result in a negative

synergy that has precipitated Type-2 diabetes at pandemic levels, compared with its

relative rarity before 1940. This is not an accidentthe Culture of Death diet is an active

and thoughtless Crime Against Wisdom.

The Culture of Life manifests as cooperation, health, harmony, and compassion,

combined with production of healthy, natural, organic foods that preserve soil and

minimize the pollution of both people and planet. The Culture of Life helps us reconnect

to our heart and soul in a way that brings the presence of light, love, and the divine back

into the core of our human experience. Instead of a moderate diet, the Culture of Life

cuisine is a common-sense diet of low-glycemic, moderate-low high-quality

carbohydrate, low-insulin-index foods that are organic, high in minerals, hydrating, and

live, with no animal, hydrogenated, or trans fats, 2545 percent high EFA plant-based

fats, high fiber, 1025 percent plant-source protein, and thoughtful food intake.

The healing of diabetes at the pandemic level requires the healing of the ecology

of the planet and the consciousness of the people. To heal oneself requires the

ability to love oneself enough to have the intention to reconnect with the Culture of

Life, which is our birthright. In that way, one performs an act of love for oneself as

an individual person and as part of the living planet. This results in the healing of

the planet and all species. The healing of diabetes in this context is an act of love,

compassion, and consciousness.
