November is National Diabetes Month

Living Light is pleased to recognize November as National Diabetes Awareness Month and Nov. 14 as World Diabetes Day. As raw food educators, we strongly support the effort to prevent type 2 diabetes. Eating a plant-based diet with plenty of raw food is one of the most powerful ways to prevent diabetes, even for those who have family members with the disease. We are happy that our raw food friends who made the wonderful video "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days" have a great program for getting the word out for this worthy cause.

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

 

Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication. The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days. The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.

The film highlights each of the six before they begin the program and we first meet them in their home environment with their families. Each participant speaks candidly about their struggle to manage their diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life, from work to home to their relationships.
