    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.


    BUT DON’T TRY A DETOX DIET!

    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!

    Salmon and Omega 3 Seafood High in protein

    and good fats that help stabilize blood sugar. Stick with


    wild salmon (fresh or canned), halibut, scallops, shrimp,


    sardines, anchovies and tuna.

    Beans Excellent source of fiber for slowing digestion and

    reducing blood sugar spikes; high in phytonutrients like

    Onions Reduce blood sugar and increase insulin

    sensitivity, plus a good source of healing vitamin C.


    Contains the potent antioxidant flavonoid, called


    quercetin, which helps protect against the eye problems


    associated with diabetes, especially retinopathy.

    Broccoli and other Crucifers High in sulforaphane,

    which plays a major role in protecting blood vessels damaged


    by high blood sugar, and reducing risk of heart disease. Supports


    the liver in detoxifying and protects against oxidative

    Olive oil High in monounsaturated fats which lower blood

    glucose as well as cholesterol and triglycerides. Also supports


    weight loss!

    Romaine Rich in chromium to help break down blood sugar

    and lowers your cholesterol and triglycerides too. Also high


    in healing fiber, manganese for protection against heart


    disease and powerhouse vitamins A, C, K and folate.

    Yogurt Yogurt improves glucose metabolism, insulin

    sensitivity, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Beneficial


    bacteria improves digestion and absorption of nutrients


    from foods. High in protein and calcium, both essential


    for maintaining healthy weight.

    Grapefruit High in vitamin C and lycopene, antioxidants

    that help protect against heart disease by lowering cholesterol


    and fighting free radicals. Pectin helps moderate blood


    sugar spikes.

    minerals and fiber. High in antioxidants, which protect


    against heart disease and help manage blood sugar


    metabolism and healthy weight.

    and insulin resistance, repair and prevent the damage done


    by free radicals and slow the metabolism of glucose in the

    bloodstream

    for stabilizing blood sugar levels and controlling your


    weight. Slow to digest, whole grains reduce blood
