Despite two blood clots, pnemonia, high cholesterol, and four insulin shots a day. DeWayne was able to use his engineering and biochemistry background to methodically wean himself off the insulin, Coumadin and other drugs. He lowered his average glucose level to less than 95 and his hemoglobin A/C below 5%, while losing 50 pouinds and reversing his diabetes within 4 months.
He credits his recovery to God, his doctors and nurses, his mother, his daughter, a set of accidents (blessings), and his undying thirst for knowledge. With a lot of encouragement from his daughter, his mother, and people at work, the local churches, the wellness industry, and the two diabetic support groups he was facilitating, DeWayne decided to write his book that explains his experience, the real root causes of diabetes, and how to beat this disease and its complications. His hope is that his book will inspire you the way he was inspired – by people he never would have met if it weren’t for his experience with diabetes. http://www.deathtodiabetes.com/
Michael McEvoy, FDN, CNC, CMTA is a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, a Certified Nutritional Consultant and a Metabolic Typing Advisor. He offers nutrition and healing protocols that successfully build health and help people achieve their optimal health goals.
Metabolic Healing is an integrated system of health-care which views a person’s nutritional needs as unique to the individual. Metabolic Healing involves highly individualized nutrition programs, the “functional” interpretation of laboratory data, advanced level questionnaires and intake data, food diaries and other essential materials. This client-specific model of health-care allows for an integrated approach, one that involves improving the function of the body rather than disease or symptom treatment. http://www.metabolichealing.com/
Dr. Leonard McGill, D.C. - Author of “The Chiropractor’s Health Book” (Crown Publishing, New York) Dr. McGill is the Director of the Life Chiropractic Center in Salt Lake City. His book presents simple exercises to align the body, calm the mind, and stretch the muscles. In his own words: “ I have been a certified insomniac for over 30 years. I’ve tried most of the common natural remedies: Melatonin, 5Htp, Valerian Root, Chamomile tea, Homeopathy and various combinations of these. In the past I’ve slept through the night maybe one or two nights out of the week. More often I’d wake up at 3 or 4 o’clock in the morning and be up for the rest of the day, or, lie in bed until the alarm went off. The very first night I took Magnesium Citrate in a powder form I slept through the night. I now sleep all the way through the night 5 or 6 nights a week. Needless to say this has changed my life. Some nagging injuries have healed, my energy and productivity has leapt to a new level, and I feel calmer and more focused.”

Dr. Smith considers one of his greatest talents to be an ability to assimilate the huge amount of nutrition/biochemistry information available and distill it into a format approachable by the layperson.
Dr. Smith’s philosophy includes:
Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect (tolle causam)—As stated by Samuel Hahnemann in the foundational book of classical homeopathy, the Organon: “The first and sole duty of the physician is to restore health to the sick.” Physicians are bound by oath to seek and treat the underlying cause of a disease. Nothing less is acceptable. Symptoms are a signal that something is out of balance, expressions of the body’s natural attempts to heal itself. The origin of disease, also known as the “obstacle to cure” must be treated and/or removed so that the patient’s innate healing ability can instigate a full recovery.
Prevention is the best “Cure” (praevenire)—True prevention of disease is only accomplished through education coupled with self-discipline in maintaining a lifestyle that supports an individual’s health. Physicians assist in disease prevention by assessing risk factors, heredity susceptibility, and lifestyle factors to provide the patient with personalized recommendations and focused education that will aid patients in their personal quest for prevention. While physicians may be able to provide the education and recommendations necessary for prevention, the day-to-day actions of the patient will determine the final outcome. http://www.doctorasteacher.com
