Leading diabetes magazine Diabetik has promoted the ‘Natural Food Interaction’ (NFI) protocol in its most recent edition.

The issue, which was published in the number one diabetic magazine for patients in Slovakia, promoted the protocol as a highly effective ‘alternative treatment’ to reverse type2 diabetes.

Natural Food Interaction Protocol

The Natural Food Interaction (NFI) protocol, a personalized whole-food plant-based diet plan, has yielded impressive results so far in an ongoing National Trial in Slovakia, with 82.9 percent of patients reported to have stopped all medication within 20 weeks.*

These results are currently being submitted to a number of leading journals by acclaimed diabetes researcher Professor Emil Martinka, including Forum Diabeticum, Diabetes and Obesity, and Diabetes Care.

Natural Food Interaction Protocol

The NFI protocol, which was founded by businessman David Hickman and biomolecular scientist Zuzana Plevova, is specifically tailored to individuals based on height, weight, age, sex, medication and associated diagnoses.

Designed for type 2 diabetics, the plan is nutritionally balanced, doesn’t require patients to restrict calories and is reported to lead to normalization of blood glucose as well as an average 3kg weekly weight loss.

The First-Ever Patient To Try The Protocol

The magazine featured Peter, who was the first patient in Slovakia to try the protocol

After adopting the NFI protocol, Peter put his illness of almost 29 years into remission – and gave him his life back, losing nearly 30kg (66lb) and coming off his insulin and metformin medication.

A Breakthrough Year

NFI Founder Hickman told Plant Based News as part of an upcoming exclusive interview: “It’s been a really positive year for us. After our trial at the National Institute in Slovakia, we have been invited to present results at numerous congresses and universities. 

“We now have exciting opportunities to offer more people the ability to access the NFI protocol.”
