What did I do ? What would you do ?
Diabetic diet,Optisulin ,Karnim ,tab for
ECG and Creatine tested every year ,…..so on
So I started thinking ?
What is health ?
Can this treatment cure me ?
Definition of health ?
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and
social well-being and not merely the absence of
disease or infirmity
Normally, we believe ,if there is no symptom –no pain ,
no difficulty, we are OK=healthy
Are we really healthy ?
Obesity, Diabetes, blood pressure,
cholesterol levels ,triglycerides and many
non-communicable diseases (NCDs)
are on rise
475 million obese adults
1.5 billion adults are too fat.
> 200 million school-age are
Overall every tenth adult
What is wrong with Obesity ?
at least 53 diseases
Diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and
Heart disease -World & India
Estimated 17 million die of CVDs, specially - heart
attacks and strokes, every year.
In India, It is the single largest cause of death
The International Diabetes Federation estimates
285 million people around
expected to rise to 438 million within 20 years.
Each year 7 million
likely to be ++
World capital by 2020 ?
Estimated thatCurrently, 40 million people
by 2025 It will swell to 70 million.
WHO and ICMR- the capital of heart attack
,diabetes and hypertension.
What has happened ?
cause these diseases ?
But, these are NCD’s!
What could be the reason of it's spread ?
four common risk factors: tobacco use, physical
inactivity, harmful use of alcohol, poor diet.
WHO report on NCD 2008
Oh! Yes, Life style diseases !
ie Manner of living
And it is one’s attitude --So does it mean ,
If life style is ‘good’ higher chances of being healthy
? If not---better chances to be true !
But what is ‘Good’ ?
Let us meet the ‘Doctors’
How these doctors treat us?
Rest- is it = sleep ?
Is it ‘Relaxation’
How much ?How sleep is important to us ?
Do we listen to our body ?
Is our life
a sedentary lifestyle.
Exercise and diet can either reduce or delay the
incidence of diabetes by over 50%.
In a way –diet- means NOT only ‘food’ every thing that
we take in !
The Good , the Bad and the ugly !
So-what we ‘chew , smoke, drink ,eat--‘diet’ of all 5 senses
Examine our diet and exercise?
Amount of protein,fat,salt,processed food , sugar?
Is there an energy imbalance ie intake of calories
exceeds expenditure of calories
How much active are we?
Do we feel hungry ?and then eat
or eat at fixed time ?
OR see a great dish and eat
Body is designed to be healthy !
50,000 cells in your body have died and been
replaced, during the time it has taken you to read
this one sentence
The surface layer of your skin is recycled every two
Your entire liver is replaced about every 400 days.
Help to heal and be healthy
Your body is in a constant state of renewal. And when
you give your body exactly what it needs and avoid the
things that harm it, the rate of renewal you will
experience will astound you
Diet -new way
A lot of work has been carried out by many doctors
following above approaches. They realized –current
medicinal system cures symptoms and not the cause
of these disease .
Dr Neal Barnard, Dr Mcdougall, Dr Gabriel Cousens, Dr
There is a possibility
These studies and experiences in India by SHARAN and
others create a reasonably high level possibility of
reversing the diseases.
The epidemics of obesity, hypertension, heart
disease, diabetes and cancer are largely related to
our modern day life style ---
Whole Plant Based Food !
densely packed nutrients, and fiber, but lack of
cholesterol, is extremely healthful. Adopting this
diet improves health, and even allows people to
wean themselves off prescription medications.
My experience from Dec 09
followed Dr.Bernard’s approach
only Plant based food + moderate exercise
Major inputs from ‘Reversing diabetes ‘
in March 10, by SHARAN
diabetes ,cholesterol , Triglyceride, lost 8 kgs
To remain healthy 1)Go for mainly .WPB food-low fat and organic as
much as possible-which is nutritionally sound.
2) Reduce fast/packaged/highly processed and calorie
3)Include-salads , vegetables and fruits

studying and volunteering !
