BRANDON, S.D., Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Barton Publishing, a leading publisher of medically based nutrition and natural health information, announced today that Jerry Mathers, who played the iconic role "Beaver Cleaver" on "Leave It To Beaver," has become a celebrity spokesperson for "The Diabetes Solution Kit." This is a systematic program that shows people with diabetes how to maintain a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and exercise.
"Today I'm no longer playing the role of The Beaver. And I no longer play the part of the suffering diabetic. I used the same kind of natural techniques and remedies spelled out in Barton Publishing's Diabetes Solution Kit," said Mathers who will appear on TV and radio starting in November. "And I truly believe that the Diabetes Solution Kit is a key factor in keeping us all free from this preventable and unnecessary disease."
About Jerry Mathers' Battle with Diabetes
Mathers was given just 3-5 years to live by his doctor when he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 1997, after he started his own catering business.
"Somebody had to sample all that food. So I ate between 4 and 6 meals a day. You know—to make sure it was delicious! With all that eating and hardly no exercise, I began to put on weight… 60 pounds in a very short period of time," he said.
"But I wasn't okay. My doctor told me I had Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and bad cholesterol was flooding my body. All of which were slowly but surely killing me," he said.
"I would never get to hold my grandbabies if I didn't wise up," Mathers said.
"That doctor saved my life. Because I realized that day the sweet life I thought I had was a bitter means to a dead end," he said. "So I changed and I found a better life than I ever thought possible with specific but easy dietary changes and enjoyable exercise—that was it!"
About Diabetes and Jerry Mathers' Commitment to Help Others
More than 86 million people have diabetes or prediabetes and many don't even know it, according to the National Institutes of Health. Diabetes causes neuropathy, blindness, and amputations. At its worst—it kills you.
"I never had any symptoms of diabetes, so when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I was stunned and sad," Mathers said.
Endorsing the Diabetes Solution Kit is another step in Mathers' mission to use his celebrity status to help people.
"Since I was blessed with a second chance, I vowed to help knock out this disease quicker and easier than ever before. My personal commitment to my own health has inspired me to help others. I use my celebrity to promote positive, wholesome values because that's just who I am," Mathers said. "I've personally used many of the techniques in this Kit and I can tell you from first-hand experience that they work."

A graduate of UCLA Medical School, Dr. Saunders is also on the staff of Barton Publishing as Chief Health Officer and Nutrition Advisor.
