Inflammation can cause unhealthy blood glucose levels, type 1 diabetes and insulin resistance. However, you should bear in mind that injury or illness are not the ones to blame regarding most inflammation, you should blame food sensitivities.
thanks Alvin. I started doing coffee enema once a day. I fast every day from 9pm to 6pm of the next day. at 6pm, I only eat (non organic) salad with apple cider vinegar and I drink one liter and half of juice made of 2 organic carrots , one half of a pineapple (not organic), and 4 (non organic) kiwis. I did not do saline wash yet. I will do it tomorrow.I am trying to find a place where to get organic staff because I live in a little town in eastern NC.
Fats: Fats are not the enemy. Some are better than other, though. Low polyunsaturated fats are good fats. They raise your good cholesterol (LDL) and encourage your body to use stored body fat as fuel. Try to avoid hydrogenated and trans fats. Fats do not raise your blood sugar.
I’m type 2 and road bike but I do notice if I eat to many carbs my feet start to tingle. How will this type of diet help me and still give me enough energy to sustain a 50 mile 15mph pace? I seem to tucker out with out the extra carbs. Do you have any suggestions?
Detoxing for a day or even a few days is probably not too harmful…if you’re in good health. However, detox diets aren’t recommended for anyone with chronic conditions, like diabetes, or heart, liver, or kidney disease, or for certain populations, like pregnant women, children or teenagers, and older adults. Short-term side effects of detox diets include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lightheadedness, and swings in blood glucose levels. Longer-term, and more serious, effects include loss of lean muscle mass, irregular heartbeat, heart or kidney damage, bowel perforation (if enemas are involved), infections, and severe dehydration. So, resist the temptation to detox and remember that any benefits you might derive from it will be very short lived. As the saying goes, slow and steady wins the race!
Alpha lipoic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, B12, Biotin, Coenzyme Q10, Zinc and Fish oil are also very important nutrients in https://www.everydayhealth.com/columns/type-two-and-you/detoxing-for-diabetes-ten-day-journey-better-health/ prevention and treatment of Diabetes so a multivitamin would be helpful.
The exact dietary advice you follow will depend on your blood glucose levels, activity levels and whether or not you take medication to manage diabetes. Generally, clean eating for diabetics involves not only consuming whole, clean ingredients, but also keeping the amount of carbohydrates you consume in check.
There are over 3 million people diagnosed with Diabetes in the UK, plus an estimated half a million more people who have the condition but don’t know it. It’s a continuing and alarming rise of a largely preventable condition. Type 2 diabetes, which was once known as adult-onset diabetes, is now found in young adults and children and much of this change has been attributed to the huge amount of sugar and hidden sugar in our diet. 90% of adult on-set type 2 diabetics are overweight. Being overweight desensitises your body to insulin levels. But it may also surprise you to know that artificial sweeteners have also been shown to cause weight gain and diabetes. These are the sort of things you will learn about during the Diabetes workshops.
Diets high in fat, especially saturated fat, worsen glucose tolerance and increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Saturated fat is found primarily in meat, dairy fat and the dark meat and skins of poultry. In contrast, glucose intolerance has been improved by diets high in monounsaturated oils. The best way to incorporate mono-unsaturates into the diet is to use extra virgin olive oil and flaxseed oil which have high antioxidant values.
Illness can strike without a warning. This fat detox drink can help cleanse your body of toxins, naturally speed up metabolism, burn extra fat, lower blood pressure and most importantly, fight diabetes.
During a cleanse or anytime a fruited leafy green salad with some berries and nuts on top is a great way to start your day. I enjoy this dish topped with unsweetened, homemade greek yogurt, and if I am going to be doing something physically demanding I will enjoy some additional fruit and/or good ole fashion oatmeal or some other great grain dish. I can hardly wait to try the new granola recipe that was recently contributed to our site under Desserts and Fun Extras in our recipe forums.
Cinnamon is an excellent spice which is well-known for maintaining glucose level and improving insulin sensitivity in type II diabetic patients as stated in a study published in the ‘Proceedings of the Nutrition Society’ journal. It was found that after taking the Cr supplementation (a compound present in cinnamon); glucose, insulin, cholesterol and HbA1c levels were all improved in subjects with type II diabetes.
Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. Foods containing the following can work against your goal of a heart-healthy diet.

As the toxins and acid waste accumulate in the cells, blood, tissues, and organs, they trigger an increase in inflammation/oxidation, the formation of pathogenic bacteria, fungus and mold, and lead to a state of poisoning commonly referred to as toxicity.
A diet high in plant fibre was recommended by James Anderson. This may be understood as continuation of the work of Denis Burkitt and Hugh Trowell on dietary fibre, which may be understood as a continuation of the work of Price. It is still recommended that people with diabetes consume a diet that is high in dietary fiber.

Chlorella: is a blue-green algae superfood that contains high levels of chlorophyll, which is one of the greatest nutrients for cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems, such as the liver and the blood. Chlorella contains amino acids, enzymes (including pepsin for digestion), vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates; and, RNA and DNA, the building blocks of life. Chlorella is comprised of a fibrous, indigestible outer shell that has been proven to actually bind with pesticides like PCBs and heavy metals like mercury. Chlorella helps to remove metabolic wastes in tissues and provides support to the liver.

Hey Linda, hang in there. You have to take one day/one hour at a time. I have found that by setting my phone alarm to go off every 2 hours, I’m reminded to eat. This has helped me eat less. Also, drink a lot of water throughout the day.
Note: If the smoothie above is too high in sugar for you, you can always just add a tablespoon or two to your morning water or smoothie. You can go up to about four or five tablespoons for maximum benefit throughout the day.
In general, diabetes dietary guidelines recommend that proteins should provide 12 – 20% of total daily calories. This daily amount poses no risk to the kidney in people who do not have kidney disease. Protein is important for strong muscles and bones. Some doctors recommend a higher proportion of protein (20 – 30%) for patients with pre- or type 2 diabetes. They think that eating more protein helps people feel more full and thus reduces overall calories. In addition, protein consumption helps the body maintain lean body mass during weight loss.
To an extent only, because diabetes type 2 is a chronic and degenerative condition which affects the whole body. Oral medication such as Metformin and Insulin injections help to control blood sugar levels; but it’s not a cure as the condition still progresses, and long term far worse health issues can develop as a result, such as heart attack, kidney failure, high blood pressure, stroke, blindness and neurological problems.
