The Gift of Diabetes
After Brion Whitford was diagnosed with diabetes, he felt that Western medicine wasn't helping with his symptoms, and was reinforcing his feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness and despair. By going back to his Native American healing traditions, Brion regained his health, and, in the process, rediscovered his cultural identity. This moving documentary explores how cultural identity shapes and reshapes us, and how we can redefine medicine by taking control of our own healing process.
