From the article, Local diabetes expert promotes plant-based diet, Caroline Trapp, a nurse practitioner and diabetes educator, says a plant-based diet and active lifestyle can prevent and even reverse diabetes type 2.
“There is a feeling that it’s in your genes and it’s destiny and nothing can be done about it. But Type 2 diabetes isn’t something everyone needs to get,” says Trapp, a Farmington Hills resident.
“Study after study shows people who eat what grows in the ground and less animal products are healthy. We’re a meat-eating society and people don’t want to hear that about their favorite foods. The World Health Organization makes clear its concerns about certain meats and their role in cancer. It shouldn’t be a surprise those foods are risky for heart and metabolism related to diabetes. I’d gladly take a nice whole-grain cereal, bread and a bean dish, bean soup, maybe an ear of corn, over anything that comes from an animal.”
I've seen many of my own friends struggle with this insidious condition that later in their lives they lost limbs, went blind, and eventually died. If there is something I can promote, in my own small way, that will help to alieve the progress of diabetes, I'm going to do that, with passion.
One thing that doctors tell their patients is to eat a healthy diet and to exercise. I've got something that will help on both fronts. That is Juice Plus+. With phytonutrients of over 30 fruits and veggies in the capsules which you take twice a day, they help to bridge the gap between you and your diet.
We call that the Healthy Living Plan. It consists of the Garden Blend, Orchard Blend, and the Vineyard Blend. You can get that by clicking on the Juice Plus+ Tab to the left of this Blog.
Ok, that covers the diet end of things. Now let's talk about exercise.
When we exercise, all sorts of things happen to our bodies. Most of our efforts result in good. But there are also by-products of that exercising. One is oxidative stress.
From the Juice Plus+ website - Oxidative stress can increase with certain activities, such as exercise. Multiple studies have found that Juice Plus+ reduces oxidative stress from exercise.

University of North Carolina, Greensboro (first study)
University of North Carolina, Greensboro (second study)
Alright. How big of a stick do I need to use to get my point made that you need to be using Juice Plus+?
If you have diabetes, what are you waiting for? If you know of someone with diabetes, please forward this to them. It just might be the impetus they need to take action.
If you know of a child with diabetes, the Juice Plus+ Children's Health Study will provide the product - the Garden Blend and the Orchard Blend, FREE. That's right. The child will be covered with a qualifying order. If you're in a position to help a family to get the product, what better gift could you give than the gift of better health?
