“Non Scale Victory. I started on Nov 13. My blood sugar was consistently running high in the mornings and I couldn’t seem to get it under control. It took 2 days on this plan to get it down to normal and it has stayed normal since. I even took myself off Metformin over a week ago and it has still stayed in a normal range.” – Marcia Y.

We see posts like this one in the community almost daily. Diabetics who have been struggling to get their blood sugar numbers under control are able to get their numbers stable in less than a week and even greatly reduce their need for medication.

Of course, I always want you to consult with your doctor before making big changes in your medications, but what happens time and time again is that doctors see the great improvement in blood sugar numbers and quickly bring the medication dosage down or eliminate it all together.

But how is this possible?

How is it that people who have not been able to get their diabetes under control for countless years are all of a sudden seeing stable numbers they once thought were impossible?

To explain this phenomenon, I have to take you back 25 years to my early college years when I made it my life’s purpose to figure out how to control my mother’s out-of-control diabetes by just using food and natural methods. She was suffering with so many debilitating symptoms from all the medications she was on, I knew there had to be a better way.

Yes, even back then, the information was out there, but not as readily available as it is today. Back then, I had to scour the library and textbooks to find the information I needed. These days, a quick online search can get you an endless amount of information and instructions for exactly how to implement it.

But why, even with all the information right at our fingertips, are so many people still suffering from out-of-control type 2 diabetes and other blood sugar problems?

Because food is never used as the first line of defense.

No offense to doctors. I think they are invaluable, and I have the utmost respect for the medical community, but medical school has taught them to go straight to prescription medication first without considering potential lifestyle choices.

My mother’s doctors were absolutely floored when she came in 40 pounds lighter with stable blood sugar numbers and not having needed insulin in over a month.

How did my mom get such incredible results?

She did exactly what we do every single day on the New Life Promise program…

She ate unprocessed natural foods.

She eliminated all processed forms of sugar.

She balanced every meal with the right ratio of proteins, fats, and carbs.

No rocket science here and nothing complicated. Just good ol’ clean eating with the right metabolic ratios in place.

The only thing I may have done differently is I would have had her include an Omega-3 supplement and a Turmeric supplement along with her new way of eating.

Remember, this was the beginning stages of my own nutrition career, so I was not as well versed in supplements at that time, nor did I have access to the highest quality supplements.

Lucky for you and me, we now have readily available some of the most powerful and high-quality sources of both these super nutrients.

Because my mom suffered from high cholesterol, diabetes, and a good bit of joint and arthritis pain, I would have attacked all that inflammation with the powerful combination of Omega-3s and Turmeric together.

If I had to choose just one, I would have started her on the Omega-3s and then brought the Turmeric in when we could.

If you’re wondering which of these two powerful supplements is the best options for you, this post can help you decide…

Which is better for me? Omega-3 or Turmeric -> Read HERE

Please remember, the Lord made our bodies to heal. If you or someone you love is currently suffering from type 2 diabetes, there is so much that can be done that is simple and does not have to be complicated.
