While a trip to the Tree of Life Centre in Arizona is the perfect way to learn and implement this cure, the reality is that a lot of folk just don't have that sort of money to spend. With this in mind Dr. Gabriel Cousens has written a really useful book about the program, which enables everyone to have access to this life saving information. It's called There Is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program.
