If you have Type 2 diabetes, this book is a life changer!
Whether you were recently diagnosed or have had Type 2 diabetes for years, this book will open your eyes to new thinking about the real cause and an actual cure based on scientific thinking. If you think that diabetes is your destiny because it is in your family, this book will show you that this thinking is not true. The fact is, you can reverse high blood sugar and diabetes in as little as 8 weeks using the 8 steps in this book.
“Health professionals are misleading patients about the true cause of diabetes,” says Dr. John Poothullil. “The problem has become so severe that diabetes is now a national and international epidemic."
Diabetes affects more than 23 million people in the US. Most diabetics are treated with medications or insulin injections to “control” their diabetes, yet they still develop many complications from the condition. 1 in every 4 adults over age 65 has diabetes. Diabetes is considered to be the 3rd leading cause of death in the US.
Based on more than 20 years of research into the scientific literature on diabetes, Dr. John proves that diabetes cannot be caused by insulin resistance as is commonly thought. Rather, it is caused by the constant consumption of grains – including wheat, barley, rice, oats, corn, and products made with the flour of these grains. When people excessively consume grains, it fills their fat cells and eventually forces a normal body metabolism to go haywire, leaving glucose in the bloodstream. This causes high blood sugarand when it continues for a long period of time, it results in diabetes.
Dr. John's explanation makes far more sense than insulin resistance. It explains why diabetes is spreading in nations as different as China, India, England, and the US because in all these countries grain is a major portion of the diet. It explains why younger and younger adults, even teenagers, are developing diabetes, given their diets of pizza, sandwiches, snack foods, cakes, muffins, doughnuts and so many products that contain grain flour. It also explains why some pregnant women get gestational diabetes and shed it within days after giving birth.
Understanding Dr. John's explanation for the cause of diabetes opens the door to reversing it. The book provides an easy to implement 8 step program that will truly your lower blood sugar for good.

About the Author
John M. Poothullil, MD, FRCP, practiced medicine as a pediatrician and allergist for more than 30 years, 27 of which were in Texas. He received his medical degree from the University of Kerala, India in 1968. He holds certifications from the American Board of Pediatrics and The American Board of Allergy & Immunology. During his medical practice, Dr. Poothullil became interested in understanding the causes of hunger and weight gain. His interest turned into multi-decade research project that guided him to investigate the theory of insulin resistance as it relates to diabetes.
Read an Excerpt
There are times when existing science turns out to be wrongand
the explanation for the cause of Type 2 diabetes is one of them.
I have been researching diabetes for more than 20 years, and it turns
out that the leading theory about its cause misses the real scientific
reason why people develop Type 2 diabetes. For nearly 80 years, it
has been accepted that high blood sugar is caused by “insulin resistance,”
a condition in which certain cells in the body are no longer
sensitive to the presence of insulin and therefore these cells stop
allowing glucose to enter.
According to this theory, insulin resistance is the cause of high
blood sugar and eventually Type 2 diabetes if the condition persists.
Moreover, patients often believe (and medical professional may lead
them to think) that such insulin resistance cannot be reversed once
it starts. This sets off a chain of results, starting with taking oral medications,
increasing their dosage, changing to stronger and stronger
medications, and eventually giving oneself insulin injections before
However, you should be aware that the “insulin resistance” theory
has never been proven as biological fact. The theory has not been able
to explain why the loss of insulin sensitivity occurs, or by what biological
mechanism it takes place. The theory cannot explain why younger
and younger children are developing high blood sugar and diabetes.
It cannot account for why thin people as well as overweight people
develop diabetes. It fails to explain why some pregnant women can
develop gestational diabetes within 8 weeks of pregnancy and then,
within days after giving birth, their diabetes disappears. As you will
learn in this book, there are too many inconsistencies and logical leaps
of medical science for us to continue believing in insulin resistance.
After critically examining 20 years of research, I have developed
a new, more understandable explanation for the cause of high blood
sugar and diabetes. It answers the questions above about younger
and younger children developing diabetes, about thin and overweight
people equally getting it, and about some pregnant women
incurring gestational diabetes. My explanation for the cause of high
blood sugar and diabetes also sheds light on why diabetes is spreading
throughout the world, as millions more people are now developing it. As you will
learn in this book, there are too many inconsistencies
of medical science for us to continue believing in insulin resistance.

Diabetes: The Real Cause and The Right Cure: 8 Steps to Reverse Your Diabetes in 8 Weeks states its main case right on the cover, clarifying the approach Dr. Poothullil takes in a book that maintains that diabetes is a curable condition: "Type 2 diabetes is not due to insulin resistance; it’s your diet. See how you can stop taking medication or injecting insulin." This perspective is especially intriguing for Type 2 diabetics because it focuses on a very different medical explanation for the cause and reversal of high blood sugar and diabetes than other diabetes books offer. It also places more control over the condition in the hands of readers who could change their lifestyle choices in order to eliminate the disease. The book is not for Type 1 diabetics, where the pancreas is actually damaged; but Type 2s will find it packed with specifics that contrast old theories about diabetes with the author's new perspective on its causes and why certain medicines only appear to work if insulin resistance isn't really the cause of the Type 2 diabetic's problem. The chapters make a strong case for eliminating grains from one's diet and taking better control of one’s eating choices. The 8 steps offer a relatively easy-to-implement program most will find easy to follow. Aware that such a simple program promoting a 'cure' could be seriously questioned, Dr. Poothullil addresses initial concerns right from the beginning ("If you think that diabetes is your destiny because one or both of your parents had it, you will learn that what you have inherited is only a potential. If you think Type 2 diabetes cannot be “cured,” this book will show a completely different picture."), advocating a self-help program that requires only a willingness to self-assess in order to prove successful: "To avoid Type 2 diabetes, your goal must be to take back control of your body and rediscover or reconnect with your authentic weight. You know when your weight is right for you because your brain knows when your fat cells are not full and your blood is not full of fatty acids and glucose." The book is a no-brainer must-read for any Type 2 diabetic who truly wants to change, and who is open to consider a new scientific equation for understanding their diabetes along with different approaches to not just control it, but eliminate it from one's life. All that's required is a willingness to change lifestyle choices.
