Health Institute Launches Diabetes Campaign

Maryland doctor seeks to build awareness in black community

What was your motivation to launch the campaign?

Love for my patients and for the black community as a whole has motivated me to dedicate my medical practice and media production efforts to address this problem head on. It is unconscionable to simply turn a blind eye to those suffering with a condition that is totally preventable.

Tell us more about the campaign and the TV program?

The first part of our TV campaign includes a documentary film which address why we do not need to look to government, the pharmaceutical industry, food manufacturers or anyone else to ‘cure’ Type 2 diabetes. We will explain how Type 2 diabetes can be prevented, reversed and even cured by taking personal responsibility and control for how we live, eat, and move.

The second part of the TV campaign includes a one-hour reality TV series where me and my “total wellness transformation team” coach a family from “unhealthy” to “healthy.”

How can others become involved?

[People can visit] DiabetesProof.org, a secure, privacy-protected membership-based site which serves as an online wellness empowerment portal and virtual home where members gain immediate access to expert advice, real-life solutions, and motivating insights on how to become “Transformation Agents.”

    Last year, after a brief scare with Type-1 diabetes, I conducted extensive research about the rise of the disease amongst our youth. Research shows a direct relationship to diet, low physical activity, and hormone-injected cow’s milk and other factors.

    I am an Instructional Designer/Flash Programmer by profession. I created the first series of a children’s book called Run Tippy Run to start addressing the diabetes issues suddenly plaguing our children.

    Kids can read this book free online at…www.daystarbooks.com

    Brief Description of Book:
    Help our children draw their future without diabetes.
    The Purpose, Is Prevention: This series of Run Tippy Run – Draw Me Healthy publications, will attempt to introduce a green diet concept to young children. By illustrating a direct link to food and health, we induce kids to question their diet choices & food sources.

I have cortisone deficiancy, vit d deficiancy, osteoporosis, and epilepsy,and was wondering if I’m heading for insulin resistance, or diabetes. I am cutting down/out as much sugar and carbs. I’m also excersising more. Will this bring it back to normal? They mentioned possibly puting me on tricor if it doesn’t come down but I don’t want to get on it. (
