The rye bread part was the most suprising to me because in the previous vidoes, one said there is no cure then this one claims to reverse it, I think I might get my dad to be a guinnea pig for me!!

Yes, that was interesting! I’m also curious to know if it works with your dad.

I found that a really surprising cure, but yes very interesting indeed.

Diabetes can be controlled well enough that it seems you are disease free. It all is a reflection of how you eat, what you eat, and when you eat. The reason it is not a technical cure is because these diet like plans can not be started and then stopped. You have to maintain a good eating habit in order to keep the disease at bay.

JessyM July 25, 2016 at 12:41 pm

I totally agree! lifetime diet changes and monitoring properly can help this disease seem to go away! It is change for the rest of your life, and can be the key to keeping it at bay.

EPUGH November 1, 2016 at 3:13 pm

That is what I was thinking as well. It is not like after enough time of eating right you are cured and can start eating and doing whatever you like. It is a lifestyle change that you can make to avoid having any complications medically. Like having a gluten free diet. It helps the symptoms and its necessary.

Jgaines November 2, 2016 at 2:22 pm

I 100% agree. Diabetes never goes away, its just about how well a person manages their daily habits.

Angelena essary November 8, 2016 at 9:24 pm

I do think if your diet is right you can control the disease and not let it ruin or control your life,

bburks April 11, 2017 at 5:38 pm

Even if you don’t have diabetes it is important to maintain that kind of lifestyle.

Amber Newman April 8, 2016 at 12:00 pm

I agree, the fact that this claimed rye bread reversed it when another video said there was no cure was surprising.

Yes, I also found that interesting. But, I believe maybe he meant that your diet can lesson your symptoms.

Most people do not realize the effects of high blood pressure on the body. I thought the first video does a great job of going into the different conditions that high blood pressure can cause in the body. I see many of these at my job everyday. working on the cardiac and renal floor. several of our patients come in because they stopped taking their medications including those for blood pressure and have complications because of this. showing them a video like the first one might change their mind on taking a pill everyday.

Koon KR November 7, 2011 at 10:07 am

I really liked the first video because I have hypertension so seeing what it does to my body just makes me want to correct it even more. I have to loose weight inorder to correct it is what my doctor told me so after seeing this I believe I will be working out even more now.

Your comment is so encouraging! I’m so glad you got to see this video and realize what it’s doing to your body and what you can do about it to change your body. Good luck!

Spencer KA November 3, 2011 at 2:08 pm

I really should stop saying I’m going to make lifestyle changes and I should actually do it. I have high blood pressure and I’m over weight. Major changes need to happen. I didn’t know that there was any reversal for diabetes either, seems almost false just because I’ve never heard such a thing.

Reply

alec_young2 July 22, 2016 at 4:51 pm

It is a very good thing that you realize that lifestyle changes can be a total game changer in lowering your high blood pressure. Many people fail to realize that unhealthy habits are such a primary cause for hypertension, and that is why it continues to get worse over time. But I believe that you can do what it takes to make these changes happen and lower your blood pressure significantly! I wish you the best of luck!

Micah Thomas November 6, 2016 at 9:44 pm

Change always seems to be the hardest part, but once you’ve started the process, everything slowly becomes easier. Well hopefully it does!

Italians eat lots of pasta and they are not fat. Probably they know the portion of food and they do exercise.

Im not a big fan of rye bread at all.

The diet , whole foods diet, is an amen to the DVD I watched except for the proteins and oils. The news of Rye seems so simple that it just doesn’t make sense that we are only hearing of this in class. What a change this information could make on our general population but it would be a death sentence for the fast food chains.
Stress control was once again encouraged.
My choices directly affect my overall health.

Hypertension is such a serious problem and can cause many health risk. So many people today have to take hypertension medication today to have to control it. Hypertension can cause you to have a stroke and make your blood vessels weak. Taking control of your health is a very great decision.

I totally agree with you. I have hypertension and am on a medication to help it, but I am working out and loosing weight to help it as well. I am trying to eat better but that seems to be the harder one to acomplish since I am at the school most of the week or at clinicals so McDonals is very convientent, or however you spell that.

This really helps because my mom’s in the pre-hypertension stage and is trying to find a way to lower her blood pressure. I’m glad to know that bread can help because diabetes usually follows hypertension.

Reply

SJ April 26, 2011 at 1:06 pm

It’s crazy how hypertension effects so many different places in the body. The kidneys, the eye, the brain, and the heart. I didn’t realize that diabetes and hypertension were so closely related, but it makes sense.
I had no idea that rye bread was so powerful. I have already sent a text asking a friend of mine if she eats rye, she has diabetes. I love the great information I get from this doctor.

Reply

SheDM April 15, 2011 at 1:46 pm

I am over weight and now is the time for me to think about lifestyle change. This class and these videos have really helped me with information on the different diseases and the pervention of them. Now, before I am diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure, is the time to do something for my body. I have already a month ago quit smoking. So I am am on the right road to good health.

I have only ever had high blood pressure when I was pregnant with my boys. Now that not to say when I get stressed or upset that it may not temporarily become high. I think the main thing is to eat properly and exercise to help prevent hypertension and even worse type II diabetes. Our fast society of today makes it so easy to eat unhealthy but with the big health wave they are creating small packaged foods that are a healthier solution. I do no0t think we would know what to do without a McDonalds on every corner. My son is twenty one years old and he has high blood pressure and hypertension. This is truly a scary thought that our youth of today are growing up more and unhealthier. He takes medication but I stress to him that a diet and lifestyle change may help a lot more that the meds.

So rye breads and pastas help in reversing diabetes..this is new information to me. I have never heard of this before, but it is helpful info and I plan on telling the people I know who are diabetic. I have been lucky enough my whole life to not have issues with my blood pressure but I am aware of my food decisions still because I know hypertension runs in my family.

My parents both have hypertension so I am always worried that I may have it down the road considering its hereditary. As for diabetes and how to reverse it, its pretty interesting in how you can eat rye bread and rye pastas. Also he named so many different things that can help us stay healthy and that are antioxidants and stuff which is good.

wow the heart is awesome to have pumped the equivlant of about 2000 gal of blood in a days time. The heart has to be like the strongest thing in our body to withstand that kind of work. With this kind of work going on I can understand how Hypertension can be such a major problem. Herridity and diet all play rolls in how severely our blood pressure problens can be as well as being overweight.

Rye turns off all the genes that cause diabeties. How awesome! What I found new was that there are so many people walking about with pre-diabeties. I would think that the doctors office should be checking this like on a yearly basis at a checkup at the very least. Again omega 3 comes into play. We need to start eating more wise by “eating the rainbow.” Basicly we need to eat fresh and not processed foods.

I am lucky enough to have low blood pressure now, but it does run in my family, so i still have to be careful.

Most of the world is suffering for diabetes and the way to reverse it is rye bre and rye pasta? We could save so many lives with this information! Why havent we heard this before? We could end an leading cause diease so why dont we stop being lazy and actually do it!! I love these videos they have great information that could truley save our lives in the end.

My mother has hypertension and after watching these videos I can now suggest some things that will help her with this problem such as eating rye bread and rye pasta and plenty of fruits and vegetables. She also needs to make sure she eats some type of protein for breakfast and try to eat something every 4 hours, making sure that she doesn’t eat any thing 2 hours before bed will help tremendously. I think to help everyone with this problem there should be rye put in all food products available for purchase.

I always expect to be told I have high blood pressure and yet I am always in the clear. I was doing regular exercise for a year and part of the workout required taking your heart rate and again, I and the others I worked out with, were surprised by how low my heart rate is…was…is?
I love rye bread! Yea! I have never heard of rye pasta…but I am going to look for it. He makes eating well sound like fun and energy producing! I want to have his energy so perhaps I should adopt his recommendations. I do make so many mistakes in my diet and I know once you start it is easier to keep going. 21 days to form a habit.

Rye bread and pasta can make you resistance to insulin in diabetes? I didn’t know that. That is good to know and I will pass it along. This is a great diet that the Dr. is talking about. I am pretty sure that they will be skeptical because I it should hard to believe that all you have to do is increase your intake in rye bread and pasta.

Granted I’m not as healthy as a used to be but even before now I’ve always had High bp. Even as a little kid my BP would run high. My oncologist told me I might just have a naturally high bp.

I agree maybe they should inform the world with this information during the super bowel. Then pizza restaurants would probably come out with a rye bread crust to promote good health. Well at least as a way of making people think they care and are really trying to give us good food fast.
