DIABETES is  chronic, irreversible and incurable, right?  It means that you have to take drugs for the rest of your life, right? Wrong. Only doctors and dietitians stuck in old paradigms will tell you that. Canadian physician Dr Jay Wortman will tell you differently. Thirteen years ago, he had all the symptoms of diabetes. Wortman was about to go the orthodox route but first cut all carbs (sugars and starches) from his diet.  Results were amazing.

In a few days, his symptoms vanished never to return. He doesn’t call it a cure but I’d say it’s the closest medical science is able to come to a cure for diabetes. Wortman is clinical assistant professor at the University of British Columbia’s faculty of medicine. He has done extensive research on traditional diets for obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is documented on the hit CBC documentary, My Big Fat Diet (to view it on YouTube, scroll down below). Here’s his personal story in a summary of his presentation to the low-carb, high-fat summit in Cape Town in February 2015. – Marika Sboros
