As diabetes continues to be a leading cause of death in the U.S., one woman shares how she reversed her diabetes in her new book, “Secrets of My Vegan Kitchen.”
In 2010, Nara Schuler was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and learned that her blood glucose was more than double the normal level. With the fear of being on medication for the rest of her life and the willpower to heal herself, Schuler changed her diet and reversed the diagnosis.
“I want to be a prime example of the benefits of such change,” said Schuler. “People believe that they must give up something good, but I want to show them that they will be gaining a lot by accepting diet changes in terms of food options and quality of life as their health improves.”
Determined to help others, Schuler shares her motivating story about overcoming diabetes by adopting a plant-based diet. Schuler also passes on simple recipes and tips regarding how to start and successfully implement a new diet.
“I hope to motivate other people to take the same path and improve their health, if not completely reverse their diseases,” said Schuler. “Lifestyle changes can heal you, you just have to believe in yourself.”
Schuler said she hopes “Secrets of My Vegan Kitchen” helps others improve their health through their food choices and inspires them to achieve similar health results.
