    A slew of evidence links chemical toxins to higher

    diabetes risk. Toxins disrupt the smooth functioning

    of your metabolism, so minimize your exposure

    to toxic substances and strengthen your liver to

    help heal your diabetes. Here’s how…

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) from the environment

    accumulate in body tissues, stressing the

    liver as it tries to eliminate them, causing cell mutations

    (cancer), disrupting the endocrine system (that

    includes all hormones, blood sugar metabolism and

    the reproductive system), and depressing your immunity,

    which leaves you vulnerable to infections,

    disease and cancer. POPs are in our water, air and

    household cleaners. They’re in body care products

    such as shampoo and lotion. And they’re present

    in our foods, plus their packaging and processing.

    You can’t escape these ever-present toxic chemicals,

    but you can reduce your danger by changing your

    purchasing habits. More importantly, you can help

    the body’s elimination system rid your bloodstream

    and fat tissues of toxins accumulated over time.

    By eliminating processed foods and factory-farm

    feedlot meats, you remove a major source of toxic

    chemicals from your life.

    Loading up on vegetables, fruits, beans and whole

    grains provides extraordinary support to your digestive

    system – including your liver – in clearing toxins from

    your body because they adds load of fiber – fiber which

    binds to wastes and moves them out of your system.

    Daily exercise stimulates your respiratory system—

    heart, lungs and breathing—all natural detoxifiers! As

    you lose weight, you shed the fat that stores toxins.

    Quit sugary drinks and replace them with water so you

    can flush your body with one of life’s greatest detoxifiers:

    pure water, the best choice for washing away impurities.


    I don’t recommend fad detox “cleansing” diets and

    fasting regimens because they dramatically disturb

    metabolism—and may even do long-term damage.

    People with diabetes need a steady source of nutrients

    to support blood sugar, so avoid these quickie fixes.

    It’s essential for you to reject any dietary protocol that

    could overstress your body’s metabolism. Instead, keep

    eating the Diabetes Healing Superfoods and eliminate

    as many of the toxins in your diet and environment

    that you can find....you’ll enjoy a safe, natural and

    nourishing “detox” without jeopardizing your health!
