When you fill your car with gas, and you smell a strong odor, that’s you being exposed to plenty of PAH. So, when you are going to fill your car up, make sure you take a big step back when the hose is running. This way, you can avoid that odor and you can avoid those PAHs.
The American Diabetes Association in 1994 recommended that 60–70% of caloric intake should be in the form of carbohydrates. As mentioned above, this is controversial, with some researchers claiming that 40% or less is better, while others claim benefits for a high-fiber, 75% carbohydrate diet.
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.
1. Yes. You can use the Gaia Supreme Cleanse instead of a coffee enema. It cleanses the liver, colon, and tissues in a strong 12-day cleanse! As far as the organic coffee beans, they must be light roast, and organic whole beans. You must grind them yourself. If not, there is no nutrients power in the coffee to allow it to do it’s job fully.
Sweet, juicy, and delicious, ruby red grapefruit packs more antioxidant power and more health benefits than white grapefruit. In a 30-day test of 57 people with heart disease, those who ate one red grapefruit daily decreased their LDL (bad) cholesterol by 20 percent and triglycerides by 17 percent. In contrast, those who ate a white grapefruit reduced LDL by 10 percent with no significant change in triglycerides compared with a group who didn’t eat the fruit.
Strength training is a light or moderate physical activity that builds muscle and helps keep your bones healthy. Strength training is important for both men and women. When you have more muscle and less body fat, you’ll burn more calories. Burning more calories can help you lose and keep off extra weight.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away — specifically the cardiologist. A 2012 study at Ohio State University published in the Journal of Functional Foods found that eating just one apple a day for four weeks lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol by 40 percent. The professor leading the study explained that not all antioxidants are created equal, and that a particular type of antioxidant in apples had a profound effect on lowering LDLs, a contributor to heart disease. The study was funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Apple Association, among other supporters.

Garlic: kills bacteria, fungi, and other harmful pathogens, and helps to increase intestinal microflora. Also, binds with cadmium, mercury, and lead and removes these metals from the body to prevent cancer. Aged garlic has shown to provide even better health benefits.
Sweat – At least three or more times per week you are going to want to break a sweat or two. Out here in the desert that is more than doable, but in your neck of the woods you are going to want to exercise and maybe even visit the sauna.
Becoming more active and making changes in what you eat and drink can seem challenging at first. You may find it easier to start with small changes and get help from your family, friends, and health care team.
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.
We carefully reviewed the diet, which was recommended to us by our doctor, before we committed to follow it. Neither of us wanted to try anything too crazy. For example, I wanted to make sure it included real food and wasn’t primarily liquid-based. So, even though the word “detox” is in the title, it isn’t a “cleanse.” It’s primarily about getting off sugar, caffeine, alcohol, grains and dairy.

Lesson of the Cleanse for me: Incorporating a green smoothie each morning started me on a healthy note, a good attitude, a lighter “skip in my step” as opposed to eating my usual oatmeal/eggs. I think I may have a green smoothie Mon-Fri and enjoy a regular breakfast on the weekends. I also realized if I want to fall asleep without trouble I must eliminate the coffee in the afternoon and have tea or decaf. I am hoping I can have just a morning coffee without wanting more. 🙂 As far as the food I eliminated, I know I can not be a vegetarian full time that is for sure, I want meat! BUT I think eliminating it once or twice a week is a great idea because I feel the all the veggies could do their job and release toxins in my body without having http://diabetevv.com/diabetic-cold-medicine/diabetes.detox=l3506 digest animal protein. So for the next two days I am only having some meat at dinner and will continue with the green smoothies and soup/ salad at lunch until the weekend.
Chicken salad: Combine 2 c mixed dark greens, 2 stalks chopped celery, and ¼ c sliced green or red grapes. Top with 2 oz cooked chicken breast, and drizzle with 2 Tbsp light honey mustard dressing (such as Newman’s Own). Serve with 1 slice reduced-calorie 100% whole grain toast, spread with 1 tsp canola oil soft tub margarine.
Kale (and spinach) contains two pigments, lutein and zeaxanthin, that are beneficial for eye health. According to Harvard’s School of Public Health, sunlight, cigarette smoke, air pollution, and infections can cause free radicals to form. These two pigments seem to snuff out free radicals before they can harm the eyes’ sensitive tissues. They also appear to be protective against cataracts.
Then, depending on your health state, within two to three weeks you should notice an increase in your energy level and a reduction in your cravings for the “dead” processed foods. These are indicators that your body is cleansing and detoxifying itself and initiating the healing process.
I’ve kept the whole eggs in this recipe instead of using an egg substitute or egg whites, as the caloric value difference is only about 5 calories per slice and I find that the yolks are a necessary binding ingredient. If you are concerned with cholesterol (and the recipe as written only has about 20 grams per slice) try it with egg whites or egg substitute (3/4 cup) and let us know how it goes!
I was referring to free health clinics around the valley (Las Vegas) or in a city near the patient. All cities have them, they are just hard to find and some are traveling medical centers. Thank you so much for subscribing and for leaving me this comment. All I want to do is be of help.
Some people with diabetes need to eat at about the same time each day. Others can be more flexible with the timing of their meals. Depending on your diabetes medicines or type of insulin, you may need to eat the same amount of carbohydrates at the same time each day. If you take “mealtime” insulin, your eating schedule can be more flexible.
Turmeric: contains essential oils and the active ingredient curcumin, which is a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that protects the liver. Curcumin increases the secretion of bile by stimulating the bile duct. Curcumin protects the liver from detoxification, stimulating the gall bladder and scavenging free radicals. In conjunction with the adrenal glands, curcumin inhibits both platelet aggregation and the enzymes that induce inflammatory prostaglandins. Curcumin also helps to break down fats and reduce cholesterol.
In fact, there is a huge difference between sugar which has been refined and added in huge quantities to almost every packaged and processed food in the supermarket and natural occurring sugar in fruit.
Yes, that’s right. Unlimited carbs. Did you know that vegetables are carbs? And you get to eat as much as you want. Unlimited refills! There is one catch. I only mean the non-starchy veggies such as greens, the broccoli family (cauliflower, kale, collards, etc.), asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, fennel, eggplant, artichokes, peppers, etc. What’s out are potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash and beets — just for 10 days. Also skip grains and beans for 10 days. It supercharges the results so you lose weight and feel great.
“A 1/2-cup serving of cooked kale has only 18 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrate. It contains almost all the important nutrients, from vitamin A to zinc,” says Connie Crawley, RD, LD, Nutrition and Health Specialist at the University of Georgia Extension Service. “When you go to the farmer’s market, there are so many varieties to choose from, you are bound to find one that you like. It can be steamed, sauteed, microwaved, or stir-fried.”
Various fraudulent products are often sold on the Internet as “cures” or treatments for diabetes. These dietary supplements have not been studied or approved. The FDA warns patients with diabetes not to be duped by bogus and unproven remedies.
Hey Alvin-Thanks for responding. I’ve been on a live juice fast w/organic vegetables fast for past 5 days w/accompanying Saline Wash. I feel better but still get the feet burning sensation mildly yet intermittently since I started but not like before, usually when I’ve been sitting for a while. I haven’t gotten diagnosed yet and I’m feeling anxious about doing so. Notably I used to detox quite often years before but not as much in past few years. I do sometimes get discomfort in left hip flexor but not so much recently due to running exercise regimen. Tomorrow I will do coffee enema with rest of your cleanse protocols to follow. Any additional thoughts are welcomed and encouraged. All the best!

Epsom salt: contains magnesium sulfate, which serves to relax and dilate the bile duct so that larger stones can pass through during a liver flush. The Epsom salt also serves to evacuate the small and large intestines of feces.
The serving-size guideline for seafood is the same for meat and poultry: 3 ounces. Even though fish might be more expensive than other protein sources, preparing it at home rather than ordering it in a restaurant keeps the cost down.
So this 3 day cleanse is simply an adaption from the book I read. It really helped clean my insides so to speak! If you are unsure as to why a cleanse is helpful to your body you can read this post by my friend, Dr. Heather Manley: Get Clean: How and Why to Cleanse. And if you like Dr.Oz, here’s a link to his 3 day cleanse.
These biochemical processes help to prevent and fight diseases like Type 2 diabetes on a continual basis and to keep the body as healthy as possible. These cleanse-and-detoxification processes are optimized when you eat healthy foods and exercise on a consistent basis.
Some blood pressure drugs may affect exercise capacity. Patients who use blood pressure medication should consult their doctors on how to balance medications and exercise. Patients with high blood pressure should also aim to breathe as normally as possible during exercise. Holding your breath can increase blood pressure.
I was pleasantly surprised and shocked my body didn’t have a caffeine withdrawal from not having my usual 3 cups of coffee in a day. To be honest I thought I would be sluggish and extremely tired as well, I was NOT! In fact I even fell asleep each night without trouble (usually I need to take melatonin). I wasn’t hungry during the cleanse and I certainly didn’t crave anything in particular, (I think the lemon water/tea really helped with that), but by the 3rd day I really wanted some meat and potatoes, oh and some popcorn with the kids!I am definitely less bloated and my stomach is flatter which after 3 C-sections….ha! you get the point! I haven’t weighed myself yet but I will later and check back and let you know. Also, I’ve had no stomach digestion issues either. Most likely it is from the small amount of dairy I like to have regularly…… ok ok more like daily and I’m dairy intolerant, shame on me.
