Two Doctors' Opposing Views On Supplements: You Be The Judge
The following is an exchange that recently took place between Dr. Randy Baker, a self-proclaimed holistic doctor, whose claim to fame is that he was once the doctor of Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead rock band, and myself. This exchange took place on a website called HealthTap. In respnse to the question below, Dr. Baker offered advice. I initially questioned his advice and you can read for yourself what followed.
I am 65 years old male weighing 172 lbs with type2 diabetics and my A1C is 7.0 it was used to be 6.2 , I am vegetarian. What is my option?
Dr. Baker commented:
Diet & supplements
7.0 isn't terrible. Many docs would add drugs but diet, supps. & exercise can often reverse diabetes. The most impressive method I've seen is a raw vegan diet as advised by Gabriel Cousens MD- see his book There Is A Cure for Diabetes & http://www.naturalnews.com/028341_diabetes_living_foods.html Also http://spectrum.diabetesjournals.org/content/22/4/206.full Consider consulting a holistic doc.
