ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Diabetes is a non-communicable disease that is reportedly affecting a large amount of persons in the Virgin Islands. For many it is just something they have to live with. However, Ramoes Hatchett is not such a person.

Mr Hatchett has gone public with his story of how he “reversed his diabetes”, a disease that has affected him since childhood.

Appearing as a guest on the ZBVI 780 AM radio programme Umoja with host Cromwell Smith on June 1, 2017, Mr Hatchett, a former student of the then BVI High School (now Elmore Stoutt High School), shared that he was diagnosed with diabetes, which was inherited from his mom.

He continued, “When I was in Miami, I decided to embark on health study like when symptoms would manifest on me, like for example, I would have shortness of breath, tight chest, and I wasn’t able to breathe properly.”

From his research, Mr Hatchett discovered that the food he ate contributed to his diabetic condition.

Diabetes can be reversed

During his research, Mr Hatchett said he discovered that his diabetes could be reversed by following different steps on healthy living.

At this point Mr Smith remarked, “This is a very interesting conversation because the medical establishment thinks of diabetes and other lifestyle diseases as chronic diseases that cannot be cured but you just manage it or you just control it. Did it come to a point where the management of your diabetes required medication?”

“Yes, I remember when we was 12 we use to go to Peebles hospital and we use to have to take insulin for about an hour or two on the pumps,” Mr Hatchett replied.

Eight laws to healthy living

Mr Hatchett shared that he decided he was going to reverse his diabetic condition and proceeded on a path of research and found that a certain type of diet could be effective in reversing that process.

“When I went away is when I discovered about the eight laws, which include water, sunlight, temperance, exercise, nutrition, trusting God…….. I used to eat 6 meals a day. For eight years I didn’t consume flesh. I realised that flesh was the main culprit of it.

No meat

Mr Hatchett said he started to use less meat products until he stopped completely.

“People would ask how you going to replace protein? I used beans all type of beans and I would combine them and make patties, burgers and different things and still consume the carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. When I came off flesh completely and used my protein from beans that’s when I have seen increase of energy. I’ve been off insulin for 10 years,” Mr Hatchett stated.

Mr Hatchett added, “I wouldn’t advice people to just do this because the body has memories and it can be detrimental. You need to get support and someone who is knowledgeable about this and at the time I didn’t have support. I read, study and researched.”

    The conventional doctors not going to like you because you denting their pocket selling us poisons.

    Eat hamburgers/meat everyday and you start looking like one. Just look around our community, obesity in our community is on full steroids.

    Eat natural and you look like a healthy, vibrant, glowing, living tree. Red meat, white sugar, white salt, white bread are all deadly- should be only eaten by vampires and not by people of the sun.

    Our communities need to get together and start helping each other plant a few fruit trees, vegetable and herbs, for anyone with a little backyard yard or land. We need to eat more natural vegetables and fruits. This will be good for our health both inside and out, good exercise in the process, a way to form bonds and build togetherness within our communities for adults and children alike. There are good program our government should supplement instead of investing in failing ventures. The upside, healthy people all around; good for our environment; good for our tourist outlook. Pride in our environment while eating healthy, creating beautiful esthetics around our homes and gardens, Sun, Sand, Sea, and Good Food. There is a winning ad for our Tourist sector.

    But we still need to get our customer service quality up to an acceptable islands-wide operating standard. First-Class all around. Every person in the service industry must achieve a customer service standard certification from HLSCC to work in the industry. HLSCC are you listening?

        Have you ever when out and experience a horrible encounter with anyone in the food service industry, not targeting, just for example? Did that food digested in your stomach properly? We need to understand the full dynamics of food and health. How does it feel when food is given with care. love, and respect? It fully nourishes the body, mind, and spirit, doesn't it? Let's expand our "wholistic" understanding of food and what it can do for everything involved.

    The nurses just implemented a similar measure of service operating standards for their industry. Good ideas. We need this all around in all our service industries.

    This community garden program sounds like a great idea. Then we can start sharing and helping each other save on this high food bill every week in these overpriced food stores. We can organize and coordinate so we can plant a diverse variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits amongst each other. This is like the old days becoming new again. Lea we do tis ting people!

    Way to go Mr. Hatchett - Proud of you. Happy to see a young man who was sick and put the time in research to seek knowledge for his condition. The medical Industry (to use a line from Bob Marley) Brain Wash Education. They don't want to make us well, refill, refill - pills, pills etc.
