Sugar Free Me…An Inspirational Book for Diabetic Teens and Their Loved Ones by Naomi Kingery

Sugar Free Me by Naomi KingeryLONGWOOD, FL–Journey into the heart, mind, and strategies of diabetic teen Naomi Kingery in Sugar Free Me…An Inspirational Book for Diabetic Teens and Their Loved Ones ($13.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-849-6). Born in Bangalore, India, as a missionary kid, Kingery was diagnosed with diabetes at 12. At the tender age of 15, the author began to write the book she wished she could read in her hospital bed, a book about the emotions of a type-one teen. Now a self-published author, her must-read book shares stories and tips about her journey as a diabetic and has quotes from other teens just like her.

Says Kingery, “My book is important for the diabetic community. It talks about faith, health, experiences, and growth as a teenager with a fragile body. I’m eager to get it into the hands of the people who need it: diabetic teens and their loved ones. I was diagnosed almost seven years ago and tracked my experiences as time went on. I learned more with each page that I added to this book and was open and vulnerable [about] how it feels to live a sugar-free life.”

At 18, Kingery is embarking on one of the greatest adventures of her life with the publication of her new book. She hopes it will fill a much-needed niche in the literary world and serve as a stepping-stone to enrich the diabetic community. “As we learn and grow with one another, we can fight against the bitterness of this disease with hope and joy,” she says.

Eighteen year old Naomi Kingery was born and raised as a child of missionaries between Bangalore, India and Cedar Hill, Texas. Her family is now living in Simi Valley, California where she goes to school and teaches yoga. At the age of twelve she was diagnosed with type 1 juvenile diabetes and the disease had a bigger impact on her life than anyone could have ever imagined. She took some beginner yoga classes to help stabilize her blood sugar and pretty soon fell in love with the 5000 year old movement modality. A few months later she was motivated to accomplish her new dream in life- to help diabetics and other people through yoga. With the help of Emma Barton at the Shivaloka yoga school, she became a certified yoga therapist. She created Hope Through Yoga at the age of 13 and since then has taught yoga classes around the world.
