Web Interview: Dr. Rivkah Roth

My interview with Dr. Rivkah Roth was truly inspiring. She is the author of several books, including "Are You At Risk? - Avoiding Diabetes by Recognizing Early Risk". Dr. Rivkah Roth is a natural medicine professional, health writer and lecturer. She has doctorates in osteopathy, natural medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. She talked with me about the staggering growing statistics of diabetes, the early warning signs of diabetes, and the impact of sugar in our bodies. Dr. Roth conducts public and professional support programs and courses about early diabetes risk recognition and avoidance. This show is truly a must hear!! I strive to give you quality information from around the world, and will continue working hard to get valuable diabetic information, and experience.

I've always had digestive problems half my life. I never thought that diabetes were so related. It really was an eye opener for me too.

Yes, it is interesting to see. But what is weird is that my husband and I can eat the same foods and different digestive issues. How amazing our bodies are.

Exactly. Which is one of the reason's why I don't subscribe to any one particular diet, or one way of eating; and that includes vegetarianism, and veganizm.

I have tried both. I can deal with vegetarianism for a while. I tried to do vegan, but could not handle the preparation times and the rest of the family was a no go on that one. I use a combination of all things I have learned over the time I have been experimenting with what will work for my diabetes. I do think that raw foods are key and incorporate them as much as possible in our diets. My biggest concerns are the GMO foods that we are now consuming. Our bodies are not geared for those and I do believe that they are a huge part of the diabetic epidemic we see now.

I totally agree. Unfortunately, I think GMO foods will become the norm whether we like it or not. The special interest groups have all the power. I also think that sugar substitutes have a huge play in diabetes as well in my opinion.. I guess once our entire population is wiped out due to fake foods, only then will there be a turn around. But by that time, only cockroaches will exist.

LOL, you may be right on that one. There are a lot of two legged cockroaches that will be around as well, as they have saved the safe foods for themselves. It is possible to drastically reduce your GMO intake if you know what to look for. Watch Food Inc. and in there is a list of all the ingredients that come from GMO corn. It will make your head spin. I wrote down all those ingredients and keep them handy for shopping. You have to look for those things as much as just the main food they come from. It's everywhere!! It's creepy!

I know… That's way the next self-proclaimed diabetes police that comes my way, will get totally strangled… LOL

This is a great interview. She has some great ideas that I have been following in other camps, so it's good to hear them come from someone of her caliber. I am very interested in the way that foods are causing so many issues with our health.
