    Scary statistic? It’s true, according to this fascinating new documentary. You don’t have to be a diabetic to get inspired by seeing the radical change that took place in six diabetics when they gave up all the bad stuff – sugary, processed food, even cooked food – and went raw. I’d love to try going raw myself – even for just a month. But that’s another blog…

    “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.
