Simply Raw - Monday Night Movie

Event Description

This uplifting independent documentary film chronicles six Americans, who have diabetes (2 have diabetes type 1 and 4 have diabetes type 2) and have decided to participate in a diabetes reversing challenge. Switching to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication, the six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days.
 
The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.
 
Amidst the 6 patient case studies, it features interviews with some of the most respected, world renowned and leading health experts, as well as other personalities with experience in the raw lifestyle.
 
Simply Raw highlights each of the six people before they begin the program and we first meet them in their home environment with their families. Each participant speaks candidly about their struggle to manage their diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life, from work to home to their relationships.

"Reality" media at it's best, it is incredibly inspiring to watch these people lose weight, lower their blood sugar levels naturally and make some great friendships while learning that you don't need to be at the mercy of insulin for the rest of your life.
 
The purpose of the movie is to show people of all walks of life that diabetes is not a death sentence. On the contrary diabetes is reversible – the secret simply lies in what support we give our body through the foods we eat, not the drugs we take.

The American Diabetic Association states that “diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure”, but the participants of Simply Raw clearly show otherwise.
 
Questions and answers will follow the movie session with a special GUEST SPEAKER.
