There seems to be no sense of urgency, even for those caught up in the relentless progression of this disease, to do much about diabetes
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2008
A new video blog will document one woman's fight to end the symptoms of her diabetes. Jeannie Baellow, 54, was chosen from dozens of participants of The Diabetes Challenge, a contest hosted by the Lifestyle Center of America (LCA). Her prize package includes a trip to the LCA campus in Sedona, where she will go through a "diabetes bootcamp" from October 5 to October 17. She will then undergo remote counseling with LCA consultants for an entire year to treat her diabetes.
Baellow resides in The Colony, Texas with her husband and three children. She has been living with Type 2 diabetes for ten years.
As part of her prize package, Baellow will be given a video camera which will be used to record her experiences for the Diabetes Miracle video blog. The purpose of the vlog is to provide an uncensored account of the average person's experience with the program, its ups and downs, its difficulties and triumphs. Baellow will have complete control over the video blog's content. Visitors to the blog are encouraged to engage Baellow in the comments sections with their questions and encouragements.
The Lifestyle Center of America's Stop Diabetes Program emphasizes a closely monitored diet rich in vegetables and low in animal products. The program's founders believe this approach is critical in battling diabetes. "There seems to be no sense of urgency, even for those caught up in the relentless progression of this disease, to do much about diabetes," Dr. Stuart Seale, director of the LCA's Stop Diabetes Program and co-author of The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle writes in a recent piece for BasilAndSpice.com. "Taking insulin or other medications alone only masks the symptoms, and does nothing to treat the underlying cause, or to stop and reverse diabetes."
