3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By M. Hirch on June 5, 2010
Format: Paperback
The book offers long needed integrative and preventative approaches to diabetes. Above all it is deeply empowering for anyone suffering from diabetes or caring for those affected by this dreadful disease. It makes people realize that they can take their health and thus their life into their own hands.
The insights shared clearly show the intricate relationships between place, culture, health, and people. It reminds us of the importance of traditional knowledge and lifestyles for life quality and health. The cutting edge analysis changes the way we generally look at the disease and shifts our focus to a holistic perspective that considers many factors comprising the individual as well as community level and which contribute to the widespread development of diabetes. A true eye opener.

Format: Paperback
Leslie E. Korn, PhD, MPH and Rudolph C. Ryser, PhD have collaborated in this informative approach to integrating traditional medicine with complementary/alternative medicine, and integrative medicine.

The authors include a comprehensive discussion with practical guidelines for improving nutrition and diet as they relate to diabetes and its effect on functions of neuropathy, cardiovascular illness, stress, trauma, pain, and depression. The opening chapters deal with the culture and principles of traditional healing and diabetes and nutritional supplements and healing routines. The material dealing with medicinal foods and plant medicines identifies the relationships between plants and their use as medicines.

The practical discussion and hands-on how to steps on energy medicine and polarity therapy protocol was extremely interesting. The accompanying photographs and detailed descriptions are an excellent source for personal application and for anyone involved in polarity therapy.

Worksheets provided with each chapter include objectives of the chapter and suggested exercises for implementation, application and assimilation. I found these helpful. They are easily adaptable to a support group or for use in a classroom situation.

The glossary, compete index, comprehensive references and resource list add to the value of the book as a tool for review and further reading and future study.

"Preventing & Treating Diabetes Naturally: The Native Way" is an important book for anyone ready to implement some lifestyle changes and willing to consider alternatives to traditional medical treatment. The book is highly informative, with practical step by step guidelines to improving personal health and well being.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Renee A. Davis on May 20, 2010
Format: Paperback
I thought this book was great. I walked away from it feeling very informed and empowering about diabetes and hope I can help myself, my family and my community prevent and deal with this disease.

What I really liked was how the authors talked about all dimensions of diabetes prevention/treatment. They discuss prescription medicine, herbal medicine and nutrition. The chapter on authentic foods and traditions was my favorite. There's even a chapter on energy and polarity therapy. There's an entire section on community-wide strategies for action, which I found to be very enlightening. It helped me understand the connections between the individual and community and diabetes and out lifestyles. I like the attention the authors draw to stress and trauma, which is often left out of most literature on the subject. There's a lot of information for people who are taking care of a diabetic family member as well.

They give such a well-rounded and comprehensive view of diabetes and how to deal with it. I recommend it for anyone who is suffering from the disease or is caring for someone who is.

Format: Paperback
Korn and Ryser provide comprehensive yet accessible coverage of a deeply-needed topic. They include sources for herbal and food products, clear drawings and descriptions for diabetics to help themselves and their family members learn and explore alternatives to western allopathic medicine. This book does not encourage anyone to be rash or irresponsible in making a change in medications or lifestyle. It includes a section on diabetes medications that is easy to understand, sections on herbal alternatives to pharmaceuticals, detoxification of the body and reduction of mental stress. The section on bodywork to aid detoxification and stress reduction is suitable for practitioners as well as patients and their families. Accompanying DVDs are available to enhance understanding and participation. References listed at the end of the book are a tremendous asset for further research. I am very glad to recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
I have just one word to describe this book, and it is "WOW"! If you have diabetes, then you need to read this book, because it will save your life. On a scale of 1 to 5 this book is a 10. If you or a loved one has diabetes, don't procrastinate by doing nothing, because for things to change you must change. If you continue on the same path you are taking, then you will probably end up with a some fatal disease. The authors have provided many solutions to what causes health problems. Get this book to change your life.
