Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an inspiring documentary that chronicles the journey of six diabetics as they switch from a Standard American Diet to a raw, vegan, whole-food based diet for 30 days while staying at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.
Under the guidance of Dr. Gabriel Cousens the six participants are able to go off their insulin and essentially reverse their diabetes.
With all the talk about how much sugar and processed foods we are eating these days, and the rise of obesity and diabetes, this documentary provides hope and a new perspective for those that are told that they have an incurable disease.
"Simply Raw reveals, with startling clarity, that diet can reverse diabetes* and change the quality of people’s lives. The film captures the human drama and struggle of these courageous individuals making a quantum leap of faith from a traditional junk food diet to a raw vegan diet and it shows revealing moments of nurturing, compassion, and human spirit. It is a film about a life changing journey on a simply raw diet and how nature is the original medicine." Read more...
