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!

and good fats that help stabilize blood sugar. Stick with


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


sardines, anchovies and tuna.

reducing blood sugar spikes; high in phytonutrients like

Onions Reduce blood sugar and increase insulin

sensitivity, plus a good source of healing vitamin C.

quercetin, which helps protect against the eye problems


associated with diabetes, especially retinopathy.
