Governor Mike Huckabee is sponsoring “The Diabetes Solution Kit,” a systematic program designed to educate diabetes patients about upholding a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition habits and regular exercise. Huckabee, who suffers from type 2 diabetes himself and has used this method to manage it, has officially sponsored the initiative, according to a press release from Barton Publishing.
As of February 2, Huckabee is the kit’s new on-air spokesperson for a nationwide radio campaign comprised of advertisements in which the Governor speaks about a series of informative online videos. The informational campaign aims to improve public knowledge on the benefits and importance of exercise and nutrition, what to expect from “The Diabetes Solution Kit,” and how best to avoid medical complications related to the disease.
“I’ve personally used many of the techniques in the Diabetes Solution Kit and I can tell you from firsthand experience that they work,” said Huckabee, who is being given a nominal fee for the contribution. “When I see a person like Joe [Barton, who is the president of Barton Publishing] as committed to health as I am I’m more than happy to jump in, roll my sleeves up, and help spread the message.”
The educational video, which was presented by Scott Saunders, a board-certified physician and specialist in lowering blood sugar using natural techniques, offers information about diabetes, such as distinguishing between type 1 and 2 diabetes. “This information is probably much more than you’ll ever be able to get from even your own doctor. It’s fun, entertaining and extremely helpful,” said the Governor.
When Huckabee was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2004, the doctor told him he had only 10 years left to live. “Now it’s 2015 and I’m still going strong — fit as a fiddle as they say,” he said. “I’m living proof that the remedies and lifestyle changes promoted in the Diabetes Solution Kit are spot on for getting rid of this lifethreatening disease. And I should know it works. I used the very same techniques to lose 110 pounds of fat, get my blood sugar under control, and completely reverse my type 2 diabetes.”
The Governor explained that the methods from the “Diabetes Solution Kit” were key to his effective management of the disease. “I got off the junk food and started living healthier and I feel better today than I ever have. So what did I do next? I knew I had to help other folks like me and inspire them to enjoy a fuller, healthier life. I set out on my mission to end this suffering and be the man I knew was inside me,” added Huckabee.
In addition to adopting the method himself, Governor Mike Huckabee has decided to join the mission of transforming America into a healthier country. “I’ve become a health crusader and I started by creating some very effective action plans. I initiated school lunch programs to make and keep our kids healthier. I jumped into my community and waged war on junk foods. I called this ‘Healthy Arkansas’ and it’s one of the most important campaigns I’ve ever run,” he said.
The Diabetes Solution Kit, which has sold over 200,000 editions during the last five years, is supported by several clinical studies and medical recommendations from The Mayo Clinic and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Barton also explained that the studies from the two institutions are “referenced, discussed at length, and expanded upon in the marketing website, as well as in the materials we provide to consumers.”
