Diabetes Books

In this section I will be adding the articles I write mentioning diabetes books that I have read and/or written. As there are many books on the subject of diabetes in general, I will focus on books that are more focused on getting better control or even help reverse diabetes.

20th June marked 15 years since I was hospitalized and diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. On the one hand, it seems like yesterday. On the other hand, it seems long ago, as if it had happened to another person. It seems as if the young person I was (23 years old) when I made my debut was quite different from the person that I am today. And indeed, I’m quite different. I want to take this opportunity to do a little summary of the past 15 years and give you an update about my diabetes, what I’m doing, and the results I’m getting. From young, insecure man to parent and author I have several theories as to what caused my diabetes. Although I’m not one hundred percent sure which one was the trigger, I have an intuition that makes me believe quite securely in one or two of these hypotheses […]

Just in case you didn’t heard about the one million ex-diabetics campaign organized by Jim Healthy, I wanted to write a quick shout out for you. What is the 1 million ex-diabetics (“1MILX”) campaign? Type 2 diabetes is the fastest-spreading medical condition on the planet today – and the largest financial burden on the world’s health care systems. Currently, at least 10 percent of the world’s population has been diagnosed with this condition. But the scarier statistic is that three times as many people are walking around with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes unaware. Even worse: Type 2 is now attacking children in unprecedented numbers (this used to be an adults-only condition.) This explosion of Type 2 among children is the reason why some experts afirm that kids born after the year 2000 will be the first generation in the history of humanity to have a shorter lifespan than their parents. That’s […]

Some weeks ago I purchased the book “The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle” by Franklin House, M.D., Stuart A. Seale, M.D. and Ian Blake Newman and recently finished reading it. Since my last review seems to have helped many people, I wanted to review this one as well in hopes of helping improve even more people’s lives. Both books have basically the same title or message but approach the diabetes treatment from different perspectives (although in many aspects they agree). The basic difference between “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure” by Dr. Ripich and this book is that the first allows you to eat meat, milk, eggs etc. while this one reviewed here is based on a plant based diet (vegetarian). Both are backed up by research and present convincing arguments. And both of them are getting excellent results, such as getting diabetics off drugs (or reducing them) and improving outstandingly their overall health. […]

After some years of research, trying and writing about all possible treatments to cure diabetes, I recently stumbled upon a magnific source of information for all of us, searching hopelessly for guidance and/or a therapy to heal our diabetes, be it type 1 or type 2. The book is called “The 30 Day Diabetes Cure” (The drug-free solution to America’s #1 health crisis), by Dr. Stefan Ripich, ND, CNP and Jim Healthy (America’s Health Coach) as co-author. In this post I’m going to review this book, explain what I like about it and what I don’t, and hope that this will help you decide whether you too want to give it a try or not. First of all, I don’t know about you, but I do care a lot about my health and the potential consequences of my diabetes. For many years (soon it will be 13 years since I […]
