Diabetes Solution

The best book to guide a diabetic in using scientific dietary principles to treat or reduce complications of diabetes is written by a medical doctor and Type 1 diabetic, Richard K. Bernstein. Dr. Berstein’s Dietary Solution is one of a handful of books we have available at GSMC for our patients. It is a great gift for diabetics who want to optimize their health.

Drs. Wilson and Wright advise the following changes and additions to enhance Dr. Bernstein’s program:

* Avoid Nutrasweet (use Stevia)
* Avoid preserved meats (eat fresh)
* Avoid intake of “bad fats”, including partially hydrogenated oils on food labels (eat butter, olive oil, cold pressed nut and seed oils)
* Use nutritional supplements to optimize treatment results.
