Food (literally) for thought:
UK Diabetes is expensive. It costs the National Health Service (NHS) £10 billion each year. But this is mainly because its complications, things like amputation, blindness, kidney failure and stroke, cost a lot of money.
The American Diabetes Association released new research on March 22, 2018 estimating the total costs of diagnosed diabetes have risen to $327 billion in 2017 from $245 billion in 2012, when the cost was last examined.
Here in the UK, diabetes costs the UK taxpayer a lot of money in their contributions to the NHS. So, if you had Type 2 diabetes and were a meat eater; would you not review this information and take the opportunity over a series of weeks to try and rid yourself of the illness ?
From information coming from several different national sources, it would appear than changing to a meat free diet can have a drastic effect on type 2 diabetics. Surely it is worth a try ?
No doubt there will be meat eaters or meat eating diabetics who would declare that this research is all tat, and changing diet cannot make such differences. We simply say to them why not give it a go ? – they may be surprised by what happens. Surely anything that reduces the terrible consequences of this illness as detailed above is worth a go.
BREAKING: Acclaimed Diabetes Professors Publish Groundbreaking Results Using NFI Protocol
The ‘advanced’ plant-based regimen has been shown to reverse type 2 diabetes in 84 percent of patients
A new intervention called the NFI Protocol has been shown in a recent study to reverse type 2 diabetes in 84 per cent of patients, Plant Based News can exclusively reveal (in Slovak and English).
The results have been published in the peer-reviewed Diabetik Forum journal in Slovakia. The publication has also been hosted on the state-run National Diabetes Association website called SDIA, accessible to doctors. The public online link will be available later this month.
The groundbreaking results showed 32 of the 38 type-2 diabetic patients in the study came off medication after the 20-week protocol, which is a personalized whole-food plant-based diet plan.
Founded by businessman David Hickman and biomedical scientist Zuzana Plevova, the NFI Protocol is specifically tailored to individuals based on height, weight, age, sex, medication, and associated diagnoses.
“I can’t find any literature anywhere which competes with this, let alone has the top professor in the country [supporting it] and no practising professors in the country that haven’t approved the results,” an NFI representative told Plant Based News.
The results have been authored by a number of leading diabetes academics, including doc. MUDr. Emil Martinka, PhD, head of the National Institute for Diabetes and Endocrinology in Slovakia; prof. MUDr. Ivan Tkáč, PhD, who leads all medical departments in the country as well as being the head of the University of Košice; prof. MUDr. Marián Mokáň, DrSc., FRCP Edin, who is in charge of all the diabetic doctors; and prof. MUDr. Peter Galajda, CSc – head of diabetes research, among others.
The 7,000-word publication finishes [via Google translate]: “An important part will also be to compare the results of the NFI diet and the usual dietary regimens recommended for type 2 diabetic patients, including PBDs (vegetarian, vegan).
“If the results of the study are favourable, dietary NFI protocol could become part of the dietary armamentary for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and patients with metabolic syndrome.”
More to follow
The study represents the first of many publications on the effects of the NFI Protocol on type 2 diabetic patients. It is believed the results could be submitted to bigger journals later in the year, including Diabetes Care and The Lancet.
Slovakia’s leading media outlet PRAVDA recently published an article about the early results (a teaser for which can be seen here) titled ‘Is This The End Of Type 2 Diabetes In Slovakia?’.
