Dr. John Poothullil, Author of Eat Chew Live, a new book that offers a revolutionary way of preventing, and even reversing diabetes joins eHealth Radio and the Diabetes and Health News Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. John Poothullil discuss the following:

  • What is different or new in your book that others have not already said about diabetes?
  • What is your theory about the cause of diabetes?
  • It is believed that diabetes can be controlled, but you suggest that it can be reversed, tell us how?
  • Your book says, “How you eat is more important than what you eat.” What does this mean?
  • Experts say that eating whole grain foods is beneficial because they contain vitamins. Your book doesn't seem to support that claim. Why?

Tip: The one thing you can do on a daily basis to prevent diabetes is to listen to your body and to be fully present while you are eating, so your body can tell you what it needs to prevent overeating, habitual eating, stress eating, and other behaviors that don't serve our health.
