Is it true, can plants reverse diabetes? There are many gimmicks out there that say they can but the simple truth is a diet made up of plants reverse diabetes. My husband has struggled with diabetes for years, always trying to keep it in check with his diet. After my own journey with colon cancer and realizing how important a good plant based diet is for our bodies to heal disease I encouraged my husband to try it. It was a challenge for this meat and potatoes guy that is for sure.
Honestly, he struggles with the feeling he is not full. That heavy feeling after eating meat has become a marker for his mind that his belly is satisfied.
In order for change, a person must have a realization that they are losing precious years of their life if they continue eating an unhealthy diet. I guess a sort of fear of death and desire to live a long healthy life must become a part of their thought life.
Letting them know how much we love them and why it is important to us that they are healthy is a good place to start. Also, education is the next key. If they understand how creating a healthy plant based lifestyle can make them feel and heal their disease then they are more motivated to change their eating habits and stick to a healthier vegan lifestyle.
A great place to start is NutritionFacts.org. The amount of information is huge and they are adding daily to their site information that will help you educate your loved ones as to why plant based is so important.
