To his bewilderment, he only accidentally discovered that he had diabetes. Namely, he was feeling thirsty all the time, and when he had his blood taken, the results showed that his blood sugar was soaring – it had reached 29, meaning that his pancreas was no longer functioning properly. He was instantly given insulin therapy. He also started working out at this time.
But, neither the therapy he was receiving, nor the regular exercise he was doing improved his condition. In fact, it had only got worse. His triglyceride levels reached 16, and his blood pressure was 150/100 on average.
It was then that he decided to start a new chapter in life. It was New Year’s Eve and he was watching a show – The Edge of Science, which interviewed Dr. John Zirdum, who only consumed raw foods for 12 years. When the show was over, he had already set his mind to giving this method a try.
The first thing he did was buy himself a blender.
The first week was the hardest; there were a lot of temptations on the way. But, he got successfully through the week and the positive results soon started to show – his blood sugar dropped at 5.
Needless to mention, this took him by surprise as previously he had to take a number of medications to reduce and control his blood sugar. The next thing he did was stop taking insulin because his new dietary regimen couldn’t raise blood sugar levels. As an added bonus, he started losing weight and lost 25 pounds in less than a month. He weight loss results did not stop here.
In 4 months, he had lost over 50 pounds, his blood pressure was 120/70 and his triglyceride levels were 1.4. He was a completely new person. He no longer took any medications and he had never felt healthier or happier.
