Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication. The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days. The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.
The film highlights each of the six before they begin the program and we first meet them in their home environment with their families. Each participant speaks candidly about their struggle to manage their diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life, from work to home to their relationships.
After arriving at The Tree of Life in Arizona, the group receives entry exams and medical tests, and is placed under the care of Dr. Gabriel Cousens. Dr. Cousens is a well known holistic medical doctor, as well as an authority on alternative healing and raw living food nutritional therapies. Medical discussions and group support meetings were held daily and medical checks conducted twice a day. The participants are encouraged to exercise, practice yoga and meditation, and are taught about food selection and preparation.
Reactions varied to this regime. All experienced a variety of emotions about the new diet and new lifestyle that they were immersed in. Some adapted to the changes more easily, others expressed feelings of deprivation and frustration with the shift from their familiar diet and environment. After a short time following the protocol, their blood sugar levels began dropping without medication and they were delighted as their bodies felt better and their minds experienced a deeper clarity. They began to believe that it was possible to reverse their disease with diet and the transformation from feeling powerless about their diabetes, to feeling empowered and healthy, emerges as they witness dramatic changes within themselves.
Simply Raw reveals, with startling clarity, that diet can reverse diabetes* and change the quality of people’s lives. The film captures the human drama and struggle of these courageous individuals making a quantum leap of faith from a traditional junk food diet to a raw vegan diet and it shows revealing moments of nurturing, compassion, and human spirit. It is a film about a life changing journey on a simply raw diet and how nature is the original medicine.
