Diabetes Recovery Program

“This program is a healthy alternative to the traditional allopathic route. It works best for those who love themselves enough to want to heal themselves” ~ Dr. Cousens

Affecting 300 million people in the world today and resulting in the death of one person every ten seconds, diabetes has become a pandemic. Conventional medicine perpetuates the idea that it is an “incurable” disease, but Dr. Cousens' Diabetes Recovery Program dispels the myth. Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D. (H), D.D., holistic physician and internationally acclaimed author of There is A Cure For Diabetes, leads this cutting edge program. As featured in the movie Simply Raw–Reversing Diabetes in 30 days, this program revolutionizes the treatment of diabetes. It involves a 3-week onsite intensive, 1 year of monthly follow-up calls with a TOL nurse, and 1 year of monthly teleconference sessions with Dr. Cousens.

Based on 35 years of experience of treating diabetes naturally, this program is masterfully designed for the comprehensive healing of this chronic, degenerative syndrome in which high blood sugar is just a symptom. Presently 70% of NIDDM and 45% of IDDM Type-2 Diabetes are healed within 21 days.

Inherent in the program’s design, is the understanding that true healing is a multi-faceted process that must address medical concerns in a context that fosters one’s spiritual evolution. This includes the implementation of dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle changes in addition to exercise, meditation, and psycho-spiritual awareness training.

Cost for Program

$11,779 (Early Bird Special Rates are Available - See below)

Average Cost Per Year for a Diabetic

According to the American Diabetes Association people with diagnosed diabetes incur average medical expenditures of about $13,700 per year, of which about $7,900 is attributed to diabetes. People with diagnosed diabetes, on average, have medical expenditures approximately 2.3 times higher than what expenditures would be in the absence of diabetes.

WEEK ONE - Spiritual Juice Fast

In the first week, clients participate in a seven-day Spiritual Juice Fast.  This addresses the impact of accumulated stress and toxins that affect physical, mental and emotional health. Fasting eliminates strong cell-memory cravings, making it easier for people to overcome addictive tendencies. During the fast, participants drink four, 16oz 100% organic green juice drinks daily. 


WEEK TWO - Zero Point

The 4-Day Zero Point Intensive is led by Gabriel Cousens, M.D., M.D.(H), D.D., Holistic Psychiatrist and Family Therapist. Zero Point is a process that helps undo patterns, addictions, and emotional blocks all the way to liberation. It teaches us how to dissolve thought form memories so that we can live openly in the present without interference of memory patterns. This process empowers us to embrace our destiny and our lives without fear, hesitation, or any resistance. In this way, Zero Point supports a path of spiritual fulfillment. The goal of Zero Point is to be open to all of life’s experiences and to live in the awareness that whatever God does is for the best. The result is you are then free to follow your destiny and to become your sacred design, giving up what you think you need so that you’ll be free to receive what you really need.


WEEK THREE - Nutrition & Raw Food Class

In the third week, participants take an in-depth journey into nutrition. Conscious Eating, a five-day course (during a seven-day stay), teaches you how to practically integrate and prepare a healthy healing cuisine with low-glycemic foods that support the blossoming of wellness and helps to open up the path to self-realization. 


The Tree of Life Center US Diabetes Recovery Program is available for those with Type 2 diabetes. Expectations for healing and results may vary. While speedy reversal of health conditions is always desirable, it may take years of conscientious and consistent holistic lifestyle choices to build your wellness. Patience and perseverance are helpful qualities to develop along your healing journey.
