The Tree of Life Reversing Diabetes participants are about halfway through their program and having amazing results! All the participants are seeing reductions or complete elimination of insulin intake and also seeing normalization of their blood sugars. In this post, we bring you interviews with two of the participants, Pat and Hannah!
came to the Tree of Life with Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed six years ago, but Pat thinks she had it far before the diagnosis. She was introduced to the Tree of Life by a friend of hers, a nurse, who gave h
er a magazine which had an article on the Tree of Life. She began to research nutrition and natural health and read There is a Cure for Diabetes by Gabriel Cousens, M.D. as well as saw the documentary ‘Raw for 30 Days‘. Pat came for the Tree of Life 21-day program because she felt she wasn’t following the diet and lifestyle ‘well enough’ on her own, and get fully reversed and learn to maintain the diet and lifestyle afterwards.
Pat has enjoyed her blood sugar normalizing into the 70′s and 80′s, from pre-program blood sugars of between 130 and 170 on a daily basis. Pat is also noticing that her candida overgrowth seems to be healing.
To those considering the program, Pat says, “Go! I am so grateful I’ve discovered this. I’m learning more each day and really appreciating it. Keep up the miracle work, Tree of Life!”
Hannah K. 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.”
