From the desk of Dr Nandita Shah

Today diabetes has become a plague! SHARAN’s vision is a diabetes-free India. Sounds impossible? Actually it is so simple, that it’s unbelievable! The answer is right under our nose, that’s why we don’t see it! Once we access the instincts that we were born with, and learn to eat and live the way we were designed to eat, diabetes can become a thing of the past.

The real challenge is our habits, our mindset, society and peer pressure. It’s not our taste-buds! To reverse diabetes you can eat delicious food, according to hunger, without ever counting calories. A little learning of how to select and prepare this delicious food will go a long way. Everyone can prevent diabetes, and almost anyone can reverse type 2 diabetes. Many type 1 diabetics also succeed. If we all decide to make simple changes, diabetes can become a plague of the past!

World Health Day is on 7th April

Do we seriously need a day to remind ourselves about our health? Health should be our priority every day with every meal. When we are sick, life becomes meaningless.

This year the World Health Organisation has decided to focus on diabetes and ways to curb it’s rise worldwide. Over 350 million people have Diabetes  and the number is likely to double in the next twenty years. There has also been a substantial rise in juvenile diabetes. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, amputation and kidney failure! 

To make sure, you are not a part of this statistic, find out 6 ways you can reverse or prevent diabetes and other disease

1.  Go Plant based

A high fat diet promotes diabetes. All animal products including dairy are full of fat and lack fibre. Lose weight while eating well by avoiding animal products.

2. Go Organic

Pesticides in our foods and preservatives in packaged foods, are hormone disruptors. These promote diabetes.

3. Go whole avoid refined foods

Have whole dals, fruits as whole (not juice), whole brown rice and dates, figs or raisins as sweeteners.

4. Get moving

Movement is a must – through work, exercise, walks, dance and more.

5. Be positive

This is a key factor to good health. Our mind controls our body and keeping the mind healthy, keeps the body healthy too.

6. Get your Vitamin D & B12 checked

The lack of these vitamins in your body can lead to disease. Supplement them, under doctor’s supervision.
