According to this bestselling author, diabetes is not a disease; in the vast majority of cases, it is a complex mechanism of protection or survival that the body chooses to avoid the possibly fatal consequences of an unhealthful diet and lifestyle. Despite the body's ceaseless self-preservation efforts (which we call diseases), millions of people suffer or die unnecessarily from such consequences. The imbalanced blood sugar level in diabetes is but a symptom of illness, not the illness itself. By developing diabetes, the body is neither doing something wrong nor is it trying to commit suicide. The current diabetes epidemic is man-made, or rather, factory-made, and, therefore, can be halted and reversed through simple but effective changes in diet and lifestyle. Diabetes - No More provides you with essential information on the various causes of diabetes and how anyone can avoid them. To stop the diabetes epidemic we need to create the right circumstances that allows the body to heal. Just as there is a mechanism to become diabetic, there is also a mechanism to reverse it. Find out how!

Every day people awake thinking they can do things their way. Maybe you were on the right path with God, and you turned away. Suddenly things that were once going well now are going downhill. Those who were your so-called friends have turned their backs on you. Why? Because you lost everything when you placed someone or something ahead of God. This includes your family. I encourage people to write. I have found it to be a form of therapy. A way to express myself out loud. This book represents a group of poems from my Spiritual Guidance Collection about my life that I experienced during the good and bad times. Someone might say the poems are a conversation with God, a form of prayer. My hope is that everyone who reads this book will find their way back to God the Creator.
