    Reversing Diabetes World Summit 2014...

    Core Nutrition to Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes is a free Ebook (actually, it's really a booklet, only 27 pages) currently offered to readers who register for the free Reverse Diabetes Summit 2014 . Already into Day 4 (the Summit will run a total of 12 days), four speakers are featured daily. I particularly liked the talks by Steve Freed (Pharmacist and Certified Diabetes Educator; perhaps best known for his Dr. Bernstein-affiliated DiabetesInControl website) and Jenny Ruhl (Blood Sugar 101). Both of those speakers were featured on Day 2 of the Summit and are no longer available via the Summit itself. However, I have included links (just click on their respective names) to archived versions that are still available on Vimeo but may be deleted soon now that their talks are officially over.

    The free ebook is available to those who register for the Summit but if you don't wish to give out your email address (for fear of junk mail), you can download a copy from this link . However, if you do register, you will get a daily email reminder with a link to the current Day's sessions. If you're skeptical whether the book contains any information that you might find of value, here's how it begins:

    "Most people have heard at least one doctor tell them that diabetes is a chronic, degenerative condition that gets worse over time, not better. The longer you have diabetes, the more problems you can expect and it's not a matter of "if " you'll develop complications, it's a matter of "when".

    Why would your doctor tell you that? Because it's true. If you follow the standard recommendations prescribed by the ADA and most well-intentioned but misinformed doctors, that is exactly what will happen (emphasis added). If you ignore the true cause of diabetes, and only treat the symptoms with medication, without making the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle, your condition will get worse over time, not better.

    But, that's not your only choice
    . . . "[br> [br>
    The link to the Summit provided above will take you to the home page but here's a complete schedule of the featured speakers for all 12 days of the Summit.
