We find that all of the students who come to Creative Health Institute for the purpose of learning diabetes self care management and taking personal charge of reversing the effects of their type II diabetes have been able to do so; In fact all of them have lowered or eliminated their need for diabetic medications.
From their first day at the Institute, they begin experiencing the reversal of the effects of the disease and in as little as three day’s many of them experience the joy of seeing their blood sugar beginning to normalize.
It does not matter what the cause of our students diabetes is, whether it’s due to lack of insulin, its ineffectiveness when the body fails to use the insulin properly, or their body is not producing enough insulin. So no matter what type of diabetes challenge our students face, they will be able to participate in…

Energy Soup – Your Way!
Leafy Greens – Spinach, kale, swiss chard or any of your favorite leafy greens. Make sure to look for wild greens, as they have amazing nutritional properties.
Raw Vegetables – zucchini, cucumber, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, or any other raw vegetable, adding at least 1-2 of them to the the greens. If you do not have a problem with night-shades try adding some tomatoes.
Raw Fruits – Choose your favorite fruit. We love apples, pears and mangoes, but you can choose your favorite fruit to make your energy soup your own.. My standard is apples and I add only a single apple along with an inch of fresh ginger to make a pitcher of sweet energy soup.
Flavor Enhancers – Dulse, kelp and other sea vegetables really being up the flavor of the soup and are an excellent source of minerals. Raw onions and garlic add delicious flavor to soup. Fresh ginger is always a favorite and when making a sweet soup,you may even want to add a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg to garnish your soup
Fresh Herbs – Basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, or cilantro; experiment with your favorite herbs. You may want to use no more than two different herbs as you don’t want to make the soups flavor too complex.
Fresh Lemon Juice – Lemon juice is extremely alkalizing to the body and adds a subtle tang to your soup.
Nut & Seed & Avocado Cream – You can simply add the avocado to make the soup creamer. To increase the protein content of the soup experiment with seed and nut creams or just as some of your favorite nuts and seeds to the soup and blend in. My favorite is hemp.
Unprocessed Sea Salt and Pepper – A little touch of sea salt will enhance the flavor of your soup. Go easy on the salt and use more duse or kelp as enhancers. Regular iodized table salt is heavily processed, so opt for sea salt instead. Crushed black pepper adds a nice addition, as does cayenne pepper if you like your soup spicy.
Rejuvelac or Water. You need to add some liquid to get your soup to the consistency you like. How thick you want your soup is totally up to you. Here at CHI we always use rejuvelac as part of our soup base. Its amazing how wonderful it makes the soup taste, while making it I like a thick, creamy soup.
Wishing everyone a great easter weekend. Love & Blessings, Bobby

Glass or Plastic?
Due to the low cost of manufacturing and shipping, plastic containers are the primary choice of the bottled water industry, which in their thinking keeps the price down for the consumer. The problem with this is that scientists are finding that it not such a good deal for us because the hidden cost may be our health.
Studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic contained phthalates, suggesting that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic bottle or even the cap. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits for phthalates in bottled water — the bottled water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals!
Plastic Recycling Codes
The following plastics are considered safest for water and food storage. Check all your plastic containers to make sure these symbols and the numbers 1,2,4 and 5 are on them. If these symbols and number are not present on plastic container or bottle, or you see another symbol and/or number do not drink or eat anything from this container.
Though the following numbers represent the safest plastics, this does not mean we have a complete understanding of all the possible health hazards plastics may present. So, the best practice would be to not drink from plastic bottles or store items in plastic, and never heat water or food items in them. Remember clean glass containers are always the best option.
Polyethylene terephthalate ethylene (PETE), code 1.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE), code 2.
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), code 4.
Polypropylene (PP), code 5.
ALWAYS AVOID ANY PLASTIC WITH THESE CODES
CODE (3) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leach phthalates which cause major problems with hormones and are toxic to them male reproductive system. It can be marked by code 3. If a water bottle, plastic wrap, shampoo container, cooking oil container, blood bag or meat wrapping has this mark or number or is not marked at all find a new brand!
CODE (6) – Polystyrene is used in Styrofoam products. It leaches styrene (a neurotoxin) when it comes into contact with hot, acidic, or fatty foods. This cup is used being used by many fast food and coffee shops to serve hot drinks in. What you may have thought was a caffeine buzz, was the neurotoxins being released into you coffee or tea. This chemical is also found in the most medicine and vitamin bottles, WOW, plastic cutlery, foam packaging and the cartons you may be get your eggs in. It’s marked with recycling code 6.
CODE (7) – Polycarbonate containers leach bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disruptor associated with a long list of health concerns, including obesity. Baby bottles, “sippy” cups, ketchup bottles, syrups, window cleaners, 5-gallon water cooler bottles, reusable water jugs, and reusable beverage bottles are typically made out of this plastic. Products may be marked with recycling code 7 and/or the letters “PC.” It’s important to note some containers that aren’t made from polycarbonate may also be marked with a code 7 because the category also includes any plastic that doesn’t fit into the 1 to 6 recycling code categories.

At Creative Health Institute we are blessed to eat only organic, raw and living foods. Dr. Ann Wigmore taught us nothing is more powerful than a living food diet, especially when it comes to addressing and overcoming our health challenges.
Unfortunately many people do not understand the benefits of the lifestyle Dr. Ann Wigmore taught us, thus they unnecessarily suffer from many sicknesses and diseases, which they could easily avoid by just eating a living food diet.
We recently had a guest who was suffering from Fibromyalgia and not adhering to a living food diet, therefore she found it necessary to resort to these herbs and supplements which she felt help her overcome her health challenge. If you are not adhering to a living food diet, and suffering form Fibromyalgia you may also benefit from this regiment of herbs and supplements.
Love and blessings,
