The Yes To Life Nutrition & Cooking Course
28 Program for Reversing Diabetes
By the time we’re middle aged, most of us have health problems.
As I’m sure you know, the usual approach to health problems in the Western World is to treat symptoms: pills to lower blood pressure, pills to lower cholesterol, pills to lower blood sugar, surgery to take out blocked arteries, and replace them with veins which usually become blocked again within about 5 years!
Do you see something wrong with this system? ? ? ?
Treating symptoms is not curing our health problems!
Instead, let’s correct the CAUSE!
In spite of the complexity of our various health problems, the solution is surprisingly simple: When we provide what our bodies need, they will heal themselves.
That’s right. Our bodies are designed to be healthy! We have built-in self-healing and self-regulating systems.
The diet most Americans and others in the Western world eat is causing a myriad of health problems: diabetes, heart disease and cancer are some of them.
Doctors and dietitians are telling us to eat considerably more vegetables and fruits, but they don’t take it quite far enough.
Not only do we need to eat far more fruits and vegetables, we need to STOP eating the foods that are making us sick: processed foods and animal products.
Research is very clear now that people who eat a diet based upon whole, unprocessed plant foods live longer, healthier, and slimmer lives.
When we eat the right foods, our bodies immediately begin to correct the problems.
Our blood sugar begins to normalize, our cholesterol begins to drop, our blood pressure drops, we lose excess weight, our arteries start opening up more.
“This has been a valuable experience to me. I look forward to taking another class. My husband is healthier, my children are happier, and I’m thinner (yeah!)” -Karlie Jo Philpott, Wasilla, AK
1. I never feel bogged down or sleepy after a meal
2. My stomach problems have been completely eliminated.
3. Because I chose this lifestyle, I have gained confidence and increased my self-esteem in making healthy choices.
4. And my family and friends enjoy my food and facts I share.
– Michelle, Anchorage, Alaska

Life is so much better when we feel well and have more energy — when we’re not worrying about how our health is deteriorating and taking more and more pills.
What are some of the things you would enjoy if you felt better physically and had more peace of mind?
- More fun with your kids or grandkids?
- Looking better in your clothes?
- More hope for your future?
- More confidence?
- More success in your career or business?
- More quality time with your spouse and friends?
- Less time and money spent on doctors and medications?
There is really no way to quantify the value of your health.
The only people who REALLY know the value of health
are those who have lost it.
