Lunch + a Movie Film Screening: Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days with Dr. Ilene Ruhoy
SUNDAY FILMS: Enjoy a film screening while savoring a 3-course lunch followed by a live Q+A Speaker, Dr. Ilene Ruhoy
Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication. The six are challenged to give up meat, dairy, sugar, alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, soda, junk food, fast food, processed food, packaged food, and even cooked food for 30 days. The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this radical diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse disease and change lives.
The film highlights each of the six before they begin the program and we first meet them in their home environment with their families. Each participant speaks candidly about their struggle to manage their diabetes and how it has affected every aspect of their life, from work to home to their relationships.
The Thrive Fresh Film and Speaker Series is sponsored by Whole Foods and Align Wellness.
