A whole new approach. Amazing.Nov 16, 2008
By Modern Ms. Nightingale
All I can say is WOW. I'd heard about this film when it was on the independent film festival circuit and couldn't wait to see it - especially after enjoying Morgan Spurlock's film 'Super Size Me' so much. If you think tv's reality show 'The Biggest Loser' is good inspiration for getting healthier and in shape, than this journey will really knock your socks off! A handful of 'real' people are introduced to a whole new way to approach and improve their health - and we get to go along for the ride! It's so much fun, and entertaining too - "reality" media at it's best. It's incredibly inspiring to watch these folks lose weight, lower their blood sugar levels naturally and make some great friendships while learning that you don't need to be at the mercy of insulin for the rest of your life. If you work in the field of "health care" (as I do) you have a responsibility to offer options like this to your patients and clients. And if you know anyone with diabetes - and chances are, with the prevalence of this disease being what it is, that you do - you and they just shouldn't miss out. This could change your life and your health, or that of someone you love.

GREAT DVD - MUST Show Those You Love Who Have Diabetes!!!Jan 28, 2009
By D. Garris
This is an absolutely Amazingly power DVD! I bought the entire DVD set $49, it comes with a couple other DVD's with more info, receipes, websites, followups, etc... I have shown it to dozens of people! I personally do the Hallelujah Diet and Lifestyle for the past almost 4 yrs and as of 2009, I eat 100% Raw living foods, I am in good health, with no issues, although I used to have arthritis (The reason I changed my diet at age 41) I am now 45 and I have no arthritis! I LOVE this DVD, RAW food is amazing and if you learn from others you can make all kinds of great tasting raw foods, I have learned for every food I have loved, from pizza, tacos and Cheeseburgers and chips, I have created a replacement that tastes better and is much more nutritous for me. The Standard American Diet (SAD) diet is killing us in American. I personally have a friend who adopted the HA diet and in less than 30 days he was down from 4 shots to one shot a day of insulin. He still ate too much cooked foods, but had he went 100% raw he would have been Free from Diabetes. Watch this DVD, it is an Excellent real movie-like DVD. I have watched it many times. Get this DVD to those you love who WANT to get rid of Diabetes and be healthier!! - IT DOES WORK!!!

Take control of your healthSep 28, 2009
By M. Grigsby
This was an absolutely fascinating documentary that followed 6 diabetic individuals who changed their eating habits drastically, under medical supervision. I would have liked a little more information on how the patients were selected, and how much diabetic education they had prior to their trip to Patagonia, AZ. It was astonishing to see the dramatic effect their diets had on their health. Not every patient was willing to make the necessary adjustments to ensure their good health, of course. I was extremely impressed with the results and thought the food they were eating looked quite delicious. There is an additional segment that really discusses the food. I highly recommend this if you are diabetic or have someone in your family who is. It certainly shows the relationship between diet and health.

inspiring! and work for meApr 16, 2011
I am diabetic type 2
I am not overweight much (20lbs above normal weight) 27 years old.
well, I been reading "there is a cure for diabetic" and many other diabetic books.
Found that more than 70% of them recommends Vegan diet.
This one is the most extreme, not just Vegan (no meat/egg/fish) but also RAW!
My diet is not all raw, I am a vegan with about 70% of my meal is raw.
My fasting BG went from 180 to 80-90 in 3 weeks.
The author website sells this for $30 but I got it cheap on amazon. Thanks to seller Inksaurus for their wonderful service. It's been helping me on my first 2 weeks. Now, I just cant see myself eating meat.
My tongue is sensitive to taste, vegetables are so good.
And yes, i was a heavy meat lover
my recommendation? Get it, its worth it! Even if you don't have diabetes, this is something everybody should watch!
