President Barack Obama has proclaimed November 2010 National Diabetes Month.

Spiritual Food for Thought Radio welcomes Dr. Ed James to discuss Diabetes and preventive measures.

Like many other Americans, Dr. Ed James has a family medical history of obesity and diseases, including heart attacks, hypertension and diabetes. However, these chronic diseases need not dictate the future of his family tree or that of anyone else. Through the power of a healthy lifestyle, genes are altered, so that many chronic diseases need not affect us or our future generations.

Several years ago, Dr. James struggled with obesity and prediabetes, and his LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) was elevated. Rather than immediately prescribing medication, his doctor fortunately suggested that he read “The China Study”- by T. Colin Campbell, PhD. He also read “The Spectrum” by Dean Ornish, MD. These books prompted him to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and to include exercise, as well as yoga/meditation in his daily routine. He was soon “cured”.

Dr. James drew inspiration from his personal experiences, and in 2011 founded Heal2BFree, LLC where he serves as President. Heal2BFree focuses on helping individuals and organizations, including churches, to develop and implement action plans for healthy lifestyles, and is committed to closing the health disparities gap.
