View Full Version : what to eat for diabetes and colitus
01-24-2008, 07:32 PM
Myfriend's mom was just diagnosed with colitus but is also diabetic. The foods rec. by her doctor for one contradict the other. I suggested pineapple and or it's juice but then thought the sugar may be too much??? No, she is not raw but is willing to try things I think so I was trying to concoct a juice combo....any ideas on foods or juice combos? Thank you!
It's not for diabetes, but I have a great book called Self-Healing Colitis and Crohn's (it's here on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Colitis-Crohns-David-Klein/dp/0971752613/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201231910&sr=8-1)
This book has lots of information about foods that help heal and what can be eaten after you heal and everything else. It has been sooooo helpful to me. I was not diagnosed with colitis, but it has been helpful for healing my ulcer. It does promote a raw vegan diet and explains a lot of details about how the body heals itself when given the opportunity to do so.
And I really don't think it would conflict with diabetes, but I'm not a doctor. :)

Dr. Gabriel Cousens do specialise in diabetic. All cases related to diabetic that follow his diet got reverse completely. He had wrote a book "Rainbow cuisine" He offers cleansing retreat too, just google his name.
Pinapple seem to have a high glucemic index, i believe that any berries such strawberries, blueberries, etc. has a low glucemic index. It is also been found that a diet with an inbalance of fat meaning too much fat will lead to diabetic, and many other health problem. She should consider to consume greens more such kale, spinach, parsely, dandellion, wheat grass, etc... Victoria Butenko came up with wonderful recipe for green smoothies, her site is www.rawfamily.com Her son was diagnose with diabeties type 1 at a young age, this condition got reverse also on raw food. She wrote many books and made many dvd.
Sending love to your mother.
