Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

Jennifer and her sister are proving their doctors wrong!

We had to share this awesome news from E2-er, Jennifer and her sister!

“I am just writing to thank you for all the work that you and your father do to bring your message to the masses. My sister has Type-1 diabetes (was diagnosed in grade school and has been living with it for over 20 years) and I’ve had lupus for almost 10 years. We are both frustrated with the lack of answers that our doctors are providing and only want to push medications and so we have found a better way through a plant-strong diet. I am just so excited with my results over the past 6 months. I have been able to come off of all the medications that I have been on for the past 10 years and I feel great (even better, in fact, then when I was on all these meds to control my symptoms). Though my relentless talking, my sister has gone plant-strong for about a month and just posted this message on her FB page:

‎”7-day glucose average 109, 30-day average 112….checking that A1c. Beans, greens, non-processed foods, and a vegan diet to blame :)”

She also said that she has been able to decrease her insulin from 35 units a day to 30.

Both of our teams of doctors are skeptical that these changes are due to diet alone.

We are willing and excited to prove them all wrong!

Thank you for everything that you are doing! The world is starting to take notice.”  Jennifer

    Jennifer, can you give me an idea of some of the foods your sister ate? My husband is type 2 and when he tried a plant based diet for a few days, his sugar zoomed. I need to get a feel for the the correct foods. I would love to eventually get him off all his medicine (or at least lower the quantites). Thanks so much.
