PTP269 - Joshua Turner
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Joshua Turner about how going into insulin shock twice actually was the beginning of him taking control of his type 1 diabetes and completely reversing his Colitis. Today Josh is passionate about telling everyone he can that food is medicine and that it saved his ass…well, it also saved his eyes, heart, stomach, and life.

His story of when he first became diabetic to gaining over 100 pounds to that week where he had to be brought back from insulin shock twice by the paramedics is more than interesting and inspiring. It is completely emotional. He gained his whole life back and has no one to thank for it but himself and plants, although he would say Josh LaJaunie and his doctor have a lot to do with it. But at the end of the day, he showed up and did the work.

What we love about this interview is how Josh is a regular guy, spending his free time trying to make a difference. His story is real as can be and is the story of so many people you know. Whether you know someone who is type one, type two or pre-diabetic, please share this episode with them. Josh is so raw and real and they will for sure be able to find a bit of themselves in this story.
