SOS-"Simple   Old   Solution" 

By Pansy Elizabeth Clayton

Pansy Clayton, though she was born and raised in South Carolina, has a unique way of getting the point across about this disease, Diabetes Type 2, in that she comes from a long line of North Carolina Mountain women who inherited Diabetes from their mothers. These ancestors were born and raised near Turkey Foot, North Carolina. These were hard working, hard living women who fed their families good home cooked meals like yeast rolls, potatoes and gravy. They were also poor and had to "make do" with what they could scrounge up for meals to feed hungry men and children who worked in the fields all day therefore their eating habits were not the best. Pansy was raised in Bamberg County of South Carolina living next door to her S.C. grandparents who cooked and ate the same way but added grits and red eye gravy and lots of Southern dishes to their menu. These people from the old South did not understand what Diabetes was all about and never knew how to control it. It controlled their lives. The point of this book for Pansy Clayton is to get the message out there that Diabetes is controllable if you are willing to use this method: Eat lots and lots of fresh vegetables and a little bit of healthy, lean meat without any sauces. The other thing is to eat fresh fruit but eat it alone. Do not eat anything with the fruit. It is enough by itself. Pansy describes in detail exactly what she eats and how the process works with your body to control this raging disease.

Pansy Clayton lives in a small town called Ehrhardt, South Carolina, in Bamberg County. She is a columnist and correspondent for the local newspaper. She is also an artist, a sign painter, writer,  and the most important of all, a Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother.

This is Pansy at a book signing in Atlanta, Georgia with famous author and doctor, Deepak Chopra. Deepak was the first inspiration for Pansy in her health endeavor before being diagnosed with Diabetes, for trying to use mind/body medicine like he recommends to keep yourself in good health. Meeting Deepak on November 15, 2013 at the Unity North Atlanta Church was a milestone in Pansy’s life. She was able to actually put her SOS diabetes book in his hand herself and discuss it with him. Notice Pansy’s book on the table beside Deepak Chopra.

This photo was taken in Savannah, Georgia near The Lady & Sons Restaurant owned by Paula Deen and her two sons, Jamie and Bobby Deen. Paula was very interested in getting my book since she is also type 2 diabetic. She asked me “What do you do to keep your diabetes under control?” I told her I eat lots of vegetables and meat and fruit ALONE. She is reading my book to see how it works for her and her brother, who is also diabetic and received a copy of my book too. He has a restaurant on the marshes outside of Savannah called Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House. Bobby and Jamie Deen were also there and they were interested to read my book as they are in line for the diabetes too since it runs in their family.

Pansy meets Paula Deen and her family, Jamie and Bobby Deen, Michael Groover who is Paula’s husband and her brother “Uncle Bubba” Earl Hiers, Jr. Uncle Bubba owns (with Paula) a Seafood Restaurant in Savannah near Tybee Island that is called Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House. Paula and brother Bubba are both diabetic so were very interested to get a copy of Pansy’s SOS Diabetes book.
This is photo from the November 24th book signing at Hooten-Black House in Bamberg given by the Historic Society and League of Arts. Pictured here are Nancy Foster, Jim Harrison, Pansy Clayton, Pansy's great grand daughter Gracie Lynn and Clarence Bearden (Shorty). Clarence is Pansy's first "success story" and is following her book exactly. He has lost 70 pounds and has no diabetic problems at all now and is cute as a button. He could barely walk and was very sick all the time with sugar levels at 380- 400 and 500 last May. Shorty works with Pansy at LowCountry Wood and Pansy's book really did save him. He doesn't even take medicine and never has.
