This is not your usual story about defeating diabetes, Lucas Verhelst takes a bold new approach to the issue in every sense of the word. Part biography, part manual, part cookbook, this beautifully illustrated story gives us a unique insight into not only the physical issues of dealing with chronic disease but also the emotional demands. Spanning nearly thirty years of living with juvenile diabetes, this is an epic tale of love and loss and the discoveries made along the way. A total switch on normal diabetes management, his radical new approach uses a whole-food plant-based diet. This is supported by the World Health Organization, and avoids the long-term effects of living with diabetes. Lucas is living proof the method works.
"...a beautiful story, with beautiful messages."
