Did you know that a plant based diet can help reverse diabetes? At Seattle hypnosis with Roger Moore I teach you self hypnosis and other mindfulness tools so that you can make lasting healthy lifestyle changes. The solution to the diabetes epidemic and many other diseases is a plant based diet. Since 1997 I have been supporting people with diabetes. Typically, within 3 to 6 weeks on a plant based diet blood sugars improve.
A plant based diet can:
- Vegetarian and vegan diets can significantly improve blood sugar levels
- Removing animal fats helps improve insulin sensitivity
- Lowered levels of blood-protein glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c)
- Effect was comparable to drugs which prevent digestion of carbohydrates
- Changes to diet can be used as an alternative treatment for type 2 diabetes

A Prescription for a Plant-Based Diet
Can Help Reverse Diabetes
Neal Barnard, Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM), November 19, 2014: New statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that 29 million Americans have diabetes and another 86 million have prediabetes. Hardest hit are Native Americans, followed by African Americans and Latinos. They are at far greater risk for heart attacks, blindness, amputations, kidney failure, painful nerve symptoms, and loss of a decade of life compared with those who do not have the disease.
But a recent report has found that one simple prescription could help reverse diabetes, improve blood sugar, and lower weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol. It could allow the 115 million Americans with diabetes or prediabetes to dramatically reduce their medications or get off them entirely. And all this is possible, the analysis found, not with a new magic pill, but with tried-and-true, simple changes to diet.
A team of researchers from the United States and Japan, including the Physicians Committee’s Susan Levin, MS, RD and myself, published a new meta-analysis showing that a plant-based diet significantly improves diabetes management.
Some wonder whether patients will stick to a plant-based diet. Well, studies show that patients are actually eager to make the switch. Why? Unlike conventional “diabetes diets,” vegan diets do not require counting calories or limiting carbohydrates. There’s no portion control or strenuous exercise routines. We tell our diabetes class and study participants that they can eat as much as they want — and as much whole wheat pasta, whole grains, and brown rice as they want — as long as they’re not eating animal products or lots of added oils. The diet is simple and clear, and it’s easier than ever to follow.
Plus, the “side effects” are all good. Weight comes down, blood pressure improves, and blood pressure and cholesterol drop. Best of all, low-fat, vegan diets provide freedom from the tedious routines of taking medications and injecting insulin.
If you are living with diabetes or other disease you too can learn self hypnosis and easily make lasting lifestyle changes. Is there any reason you wouldn’t support yourself with a totally healthy lifestyle?
