This is a “must listen” interview for anyone suffering from diabetes, obesity or blood sugar disorders. It’s commercial-free and it’s a free download of an MP3 file that will play on any computer or MP3 player. What you’ll hear in this interview will absolutely astound you — it rocks the world of conventional medicine and its failed diabetes treatments.
This is an interview with Dr. Gabriel Cousens, founder of the
Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, Arizona (www.TreeofLife.nu).
In this audio interview, you’ll hear Dr. Cousens describe why and how consuming raw foodsreally works to initiate dramatic reductions in fasting blood sugar levels, effectively reversing diabetes in a matter of just a few weeks.
This is essentially a cure for diabetes. Not coincidentally, Dr. Cousens is the author of the book There Is A Cure for Diabetes. The book documents the successes of eleven people who went on a raw foods diet and experienced rapid and remarkable improvements in physiology, including:

was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago, and was immediately put on insulin. For the last three years, Hannah has been taking between 24 and 45 units of levamir and novalog each day. By Day 5 of her fast here at the Tree of Life, Hannah was off all of her insulin and medications and had a blood sugar of under 100. Her average fasting blood sugar since being here is 93. Prior they were about 140, although controlled with insulin.
Initially, Hannah didn’t see the value of the Tree of Life program because due to the monetary investment and travel logistics, but realized that as a very busy college student, she needed to create the time and space for her healing, out of the context of her daily life. Hannah came because she was determined to get off insulin completely, and wanted to be in an environment of medical staff and community that understood that despite what is commonly believed, Type 1 diabetes is not incurable. She wanted education and to be in an inspiring environment.
Hannah loves the people, the conversations, the beauty of the nature here. She feels the staff are passionate and caring, and she appreciates the support and reassurance that she never has experienced before with health care.
To anyone considering the program, Hannah would say, “It is unique, and offers so much for healing and spirituality. It is a beautiful environment where people are in tune with their own purposes and are giving. It is a safe, positive environment for healing and for starting anew.”

Thanks to the humble grapefruit, here follows some exciting contemporary news :
Big Pharma has been doggedly searching for drugs that target a group of nuclear receptor proteins in the human body known by the long title of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs, for short). The reason? PPARs regulate the expression of genes that are involved in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, among other functions — so the theory is that if drugs could control PPARs, the medications would treat diabetes, high cholesterol and even maybe obesity.
But it turns out there’s already a substance that could do all this. And it’s not a side effect-laden chemical.
It’s a compound in grapefruit.
Bottom line: there’s extremely sweet breaking news about a compound hidden in the tangy flavor of grapefruits that may treat diabetes naturally and also bring some of the benefits of low carb dieting to the body, too — without dieting.
Scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), have discovered that naringenin, an antioxidant derived from the bitter flavor of grapefruits and other citrus fruits, triggers the liver to break down fat.
After a meal, the blood is flushed with sugars, which activate LXR-alpha, a PPAR associated with inflammation. This triggers the liver to create fatty acids for long-term storage. But during periods of fasting (and low carb dieting) the process is reversed: fat cells release fatty acids and break them down to ketones. There’s an increased sensitivity to insulin, too. The new research, just published in the online journal PLoS ONE, shows that naringenin activates two kinds of PPARs (dubbed PPAR-alpha and PPARy) and blocks LXR-alpha — resulting in fasting-type benefits to the body.
“It is a process which is similar to the Atkins diet, without many of the side effects,” Martin L. Yarmush, MD, PhD, director of the MGH Center for Engineering in Medicine and one of the paper’s authors, said in a media statement. “The liver behaves as if fasting, breaking down fatty acids instead of carbohydrates.”
“It is a fascinating find,” Yaakov Nahmias, PhD, the paper’s senior author said in the press statement. He pointed out that the results of the research were what the pharmaceutical industry has long been seeking through drug research.
“But their (drug) development was plagued by safety concerns. Remarkably, naringenin is a dietary supplement with a clear safety record. Evidence suggests it might actually protect the liver from damage,” Dr. Nahmias added. If the results of the new study hold up in human patients, the research team believes the grapefruit compound could become a treatment for high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
