School of Medicine alumni to discuss breakthrough book on diabetes

Loma Linda University School of Medicine alumni Stuart A. Seale, MD, and Franklin R. House, MD, will conduct a panel discussion about their new breakthrough book The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle as part of the preventive medicine grand rounds on Wednesday, February 6, at 12:00 noon in Nichol Hall, room 1610.

The Lifestyle Center of America’s complete program to stop diabetes, restore health, and build natural vitality is now documented in The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle. The authors will conduct a panel discussion on their clinically proven success stopping diabetes and restoring health. This discussion will be presented from both the physician and patient perspectives.

Attendees will learn why thousands of Americans once struggling with diabetes have finally found a solution to their diabetes dilemma. The workshop does not feature a new medication nor a supplement. Instead it will unveil the most powerful anecdote ever developed for type 2 diabetes—changing one’s habits.

The three pillars of this lifestyle approach include a plant-based diet, intermittent training, and cognitive behavior therapy. Lifestyle habits that can make the most impact on diabetes and restore health in just 30 days will be explained.

Dr. Seale, a board-certified family physician and co-author of The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle, has helped thousands of patients over the past quarter century. He now serves as the medical director for Ardmore Institute of Health, and is the medical director, physician, and educator for Lifestyle of America’s Stopping Diabetes Program™ at the Sedona Rouge Hotel and Spa in Sedona, Arizona.

He conducts an advanced wellness and healthy lifestyle workshop called The Well Experience™. Dr. Seale also maintains a private, mobile medical practice, Room Calls Sedona.

“The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle is fundamentally different from the standard diabetes information that is currently dispensed by the medical community,” says Dr. Seale. “Our book actually contradicts many of the guidelines offered by the American Diabetes Association and exposes how many doctors are misinformed, lack proper training, rely too heavily on drug treatment as a first-and-only option, and fail to spend enough time with patients in order to properly address all of the factors that lead to the development and continuation of the patient’s diabetes. Our method is built around a proven, natural lifestyle approach. Many cases of diabetes are preventable and reversible.”

Ian Blake Newman, a co-author of The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle, feared his type 1 diabetes was going to kill him. He discovered a program at Lifestyle Center of America that changed—if not saved—his life. Since going through the 18-day program several years ago, he dropped 30 pounds, cut his insulin intake by more than half, came off his cholesterol drugs and two other medicines, lowered his resting heart rate, and adopted a new way of thinking about food, stress, and physical activity.

Dr. House, a co-author of The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle, has helped thousands of patients for more than four decades. He earned his medical degree from Loma Linda University in 1962, and went on to become president of Lifestyle Center of America for four years, and has been the chair of the board for the past three. He has had a private practice in Texas for more than 22 years and was a founding member and chair of Canvasback Missions Inc., a medical, dental, and nursing mission program serving the islands of the North Pacific.

The panel discussion at Loma Linda University is part of a 14-city national book tour, which began in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 3. The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle is now on sale at all major booksellers.
