This may shock you: “Diabetes can be reversed.”
“Whaaaaat??” … I hear you saying…
Yes, that is a strong statement. However, there is now
Diet and lifestyle changes really can reverse diabetes!
Alex Ortner, one of my online colleagues, sent an email
today that tells the exciting story this way:
Today is the 3rd annual Reversing Diabetes Action Day,
a day where we work to spread the truth about how
to actually become healthy through raw and living
foods (not the twisted drug company way).
One of the ways that we help to spread this message
is by offering a huge discount on our film “Simply
Raw”, but I’ll get to that in just a minute.
First I want to share a quick story that will give
you an idea of what this health movement that is
happening in the world is all about…
(You can skip the story and check out the discount
by clicking here if you want…but it’s a good story)
When Mark Perlmutter came up with the idea to
make the film “Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes
in 30 Days” a few years ago, he was looking for
a way to share the transformative power of raw
and living foods with the world.
At the time he was living in Patagonia, Arizona
near the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center and
was seeing the amazing healing work that Dr. Gabriel
Cousens was doing there.
He hoped that by filming what was happening there
that he’d be able to help others see the truth
about what health and healing is all about.
Like many people who awaken to the reality of how
to actually be healthy, he was struggling with a
way to be able to share the message and have people
actually believe him.
You see… when you first realize how backwards our
health system is (especially here in America) you
want to go out and tell your friends and tell
everyone who will listen.
But more often than not, people look at you like
you’re crazy when you start talking about the
corruption of the drug industry and how eating
raw and living foods can make you healthy…
The only people who will listen tend to be
different in that they’re open minded, intelligent
and willing to question things rather than just
accepting everything they’re told as truth.
Unfortunately it’s shocking how many people
won’t even bother to question things and think
But Mark was determined to reach the masses no
matter what it took.
So he started to share his idea with others
because at the time he had no idea as to how to
make a film, and didn’t have the full financial
resources to make it happen (films are expensive
And this is when the magic started to happen…
What he discovered was that when he looked in
the right places there were lots of people just
like him who were frustrated with how the so
called “health” industry was telling more and
more lies every year just to make more money.
A pill for this, a pill for that, it seemed like
they were making up stuff just to sell a pill,
and although most people were ignorant to it
In the end it took a total of 10 everyday people
to fund the film (My brother Nick and I being two
of those people)
And that was just the money part of it…
The learning curve on how to actually make a film
was the really tough part!
The cameras…the tapes…the lighting…the editing…
it’s all tougher than you’d think!
But almost 3 years after the release of the film
“Simply Raw”, we can all say it was worth it.
Every day people email us telling us stories of
how they saw the film and how their health and
lives transformed as a result of it.
Weight loss, lower cholesterol, lower blood
pressure…no diabetes…it all just makes us smile.
And although we still haven’t made the money
back that we invested (like I said…it’s expensive),
we’re all filled with pride knowing that we’re
doing the right thing every day to help people.
Now I’m telling you this story because today
is Reversing Diabetes Action Day. And I want
to share two…I guess I’ll call them “morals”
for the day.
1 - If you’re struggling with any health challenge
or know of anybody who is struggling with health
issues, please pick up a copy of our film “Simply
Raw” today at the special 50% OFF discount we’re
offering this week.
Mainstream America looks at this whole “raw food”
thing like it’s crazy. But it’s only because
they’re brain washed by the big corporations
running this country like the drug industry and
the food industry.
There’s nothing crazy about eating food that
grows in the earth. People have been doing it
for as long as we can remember.
What is crazy is eating fake food and taking drugs
that the corporations tell you are “perfectly
natural” for your body.
And forget what you think is crazy or not crazy…
just try it and see for yourself. The results
that you’ll get is all the proof you really need.
One thing I love to look at is the difference
between the people who walk into the pharmacy
to get drugs regularly and the people who go to
my local farm to get food regularly.
It’s pretty obvious who is healthier…
So I hope that today you’re willing to be one of
those people I mentioned above who is willing to
Our film is ridiculously cheap at just under $15
this week. And you can even get the companion
2 disc DVD set for 50% OFF this week also.
Again, take control of your life… and if you’re
willing, make the effort to help somebody with
their life who you think might need this information.
Here’s the link to check out the trailer and

2 - If you ever have a vision to help people
but don’t think it can happen because of time,
money or because you just don’t think you can
do it, promise me you’ll do one thing…
Do it anyway.
It’s those people, people like Mark Perlmutter,
the creator of our “Simply Raw” film, who are
helping to change this world for the better.
It takes courage to stand up and do what’s right
and not just profitable. That’s what the story
of this film is about. That’s why I got involved
and do what I do every day.
Remember, this is Reversing Diabetes Action Day
(and week). Take some action today to help
yourself or help a friend, and if you haven’t
seen the film “Simply Raw” yet please pick up
a copy today…
To your health,
P.S. – Sorry for the long email. I think that’s
the longest email I’ve ever written. But hey,
sometimes you just want to share something you’re
– Alex Ortner – Executive Producer of the film
“Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days”
Ironically, when I saw Alex mention Mark Perlmutter,
I had a feeling I knew that name from somewhere.
Sure enough… I actually have his business card. I
had met him at a raw foods potluck I attended with
a friend about eight months ago.
By the way, I know raw foods are really important.
I love raw fruits, vegetables and nuts.
However, I can’t say that I’ll ever stop eating cooked
foods entirely, or ever become a total vegetarian.
You may be saying the same thing. And that’s okay.
But learning easy and tasty ways to incorporate lots
of raw foods into our diets is a really great idea. The
closer to nature we can get, the better we will feel.
It only makes sense.
