I found this book “diabetes freedom” very informative! My husband has been dealing with type 2 diabetes for 15 years. I appreciate the depth to which the author discusses both types of diabetes, making comparisons and highlighting the latest research with its implications. The information which I found alarming is the risk of heart disease and stroke are 2-4 times greater for those people who have diabetes in addition to the fact they are more likely to get severe cases of the flu. I was surprised to read that both types are connected to either a reaction of the immune system or malfunction of the immune system which are triggered by environmental factors. I am grateful to this author who looks at other approaches to treating disease than the traditional protocol which only treats the symptoms and not the roots. If you apply the knowledge outlined in this book it will give you the power to take control of what is ultimately a life threatening disease.
