Supplementing with psyllium has been shown to be a safe and well-tolerated way to improve control of blood glucose and cholesterol. In a double-blind trial, men with type 2 diabetes who took 5.1 grams of psyllium per day for eight weeks lowered their blood glucose levels by 11 to 19.2%, their total cholesterol by 8.9%, and their LDL (bad) cholesterol by 13%, compared with a placebo.

If you are stressed, your hormones go crazy. Cortisol goes up which makes you hungry, causes belly fat storage and leads to type 2 diabetes. Studies show that taking deep breaths activates a special nerve, called the vagus nerve, that shifts your metabolism from fat storage to fat burning and quickly moves you out of the stress state. And all you have to do is take a deep breath. My Take Five Breathing Break is something you can do anywhere, anytime. Simply take five slow deep breaths – in to the count of five, out to the count of five. Five times. That’s it. Do this before every meal. Watch what happens!
That’s not all. For years oatmeal has had an uber-healthy reputation, and for good reason. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), oats have the highest proportion of soluble fiber than any other grain, which can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease. In addition, oatmeal was the first food the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for carrying a specific health claim.
Broccoli is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, which includes other veggies such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and bok choy. What makes this class of veggies unique is the high levels of sulfur-containing compounds known as glucosinolates. Perhaps better known for their potential anticancer effects, these compounds may also have a role in reducing heart disease risk and heart-related deaths. In a study reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2011, researchers found that cruciferous vegetable consumption was associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease. Their recommendation: “Increase consumption of vegetables, particularly cruciferous vegetables and fruit, to promote cardiovascular healthy and overall longevity.”
Plant-based Nutritional Program: Include plenty of green and bright-colored vegetables, herbs and algae as part of your nutritional program. Cilantro, parsley, alfalfa, and chlorella, are powerful chemical and heavy metal chelators. Dark green vegetables and herbs alkalize and purify the blood, making it easier for the body to rid itself of wastes with less discomfort. You can juice these, include them in salads, and/or mix powdered forms into water or juice for a quick and effective dose.
Studies show that inflammation triggers blood sugar imbalances, insulin resistance, pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The most common source of inflammatory foods other than sugar, flour and trans fats are hidden food sensitivities. The most common culprits are gluten and dairy. We often crave the foods we’re allergic to. Without them we feel lousy and want more. Quit gluten and dairy for ten days. Getting off them isn’t easy, but after just two to three days without them you’ll have renewed energy, relief from cravings, and will see many of your common symptoms disappear.
In addition, this program addresses how to detox your mind and handle your self-esteem, emotions, attitude, internal talk-track, self-motivation, and negative people. Again, this is an area that most detox programs ignore! If your mind is full of negative thoughts and full of hopelessness, you are not going to be motivated to change and stick with those changes to your diet and lifestyle.
Diabetes type 2 and other blood sugar issues are largely nutritional problems which are best healed with a nutritional approach. This is why we have developed a ground-breaking Diabetes Detox programme to help you overcome blood sugar conditions, and go home feeling better informed about your future diet and lifestyle to support your health and not erode it.
You can do strength training with hand weights, elastic bands, or weight machines. Try to do strength training two to three times a week. Start with a light weight. Slowly increase the size of your weights as your muscles become stronger.

“I’ve never made a commitment to my health as I have with this detox. My doctor was skeptical and wanted to put me on insulin. I wanted to prove her wrong and was committed to go through the program to take my health back. It helped me realize how compulsive I’ve been with food. How I would reward my stressfull events with sweet treats. My husband joined me on the detox and he is also thrilled with the results. Thank you Dr. Hyman and staff for this amazing program.” ~ Jean Y.

I knew I wanted to try a 3 Day Cleanse for myself. Seeing the Skinny Ms. site advertise the book and cleanse I was ready to give it a try. Since I already eat quite healthy, no refined flours or sugars, I didn’t think I’d notice much difference in 3 days. How wrong I was! I am lactose intolerant, but do have some dairy. Removing all forms of dairy, removing animal protein except for egg whites in my smoothies and also removing certain carbs for the cleanse was just what I needed. I felt fantastic and a lot less bloated too and I didn’t even remove the caffeine as suggested.
“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.”
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 to 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.
Foods high in chromium: Chromium is a nutrient that’s involved in normal carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Foods high in chromium can improve the glucose tolerance factor in your body and naturally balance out blood glucose levels. It plays a role in insulin pathways, helping bring glucose into our cells so it can be used for bodily energy. Broccoli has the highest amounts of chromium, but you can also find it in raw cheese, green beans, brewer’s yeast and grass-fed beef. (10)
The majority of people with diabetes type 2 are overweight. Excess abdominal weight does not stop insulin formation but it does make the body less sensitive to insulin. Type 2 diabetes improves with weight loss programs.
Starting with the Ultimate Herbal DETOX is a great way to start the process of healing type 2 diabetes. This program contains Psyllium, Wormwood, Aloe Vera, Ginger and suggests a diet high in the other herbs mentioned above.
Patients who are taking medications that lower blood glucose, particularly insulin, should take special precautions before embarking on a workout program: Monitor glucose levels before, during, and after workouts (glucose levels swing dramatically during exercise). Avoid exercise if glucose levels are above 300 mg/dl or under 100 mg/dl.
People who have late-stage kidney disease usually need dialysis. Once patients are on dialysis, they need more protein in their diet. Patients must still be very careful about restricting salt, potassium, phosphorus, and fluids. Patients on peritoneal dialysis may have fewer restrictions on salt, potassium, and phosphorus than those on hemodialysis.
Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. Normally, the pancreas (an organ behind the stomach) releases insulin to help your body store and use the sugar and fat from the food you eat. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas produces very little or no insulin, or when the body does not respond appropriately to insulin. As yet, there is no cure. People with diabetes need to manage their disease to stay healthy.
Common symptoms of toxicity include headaches, fatigue, increased allergy symptoms, overall aches and pains (particularly joint pain), and digestive discomfort. These symptoms occur when the body has become so clogged with toxins that it can no longer perform necessary functions effectively.
While most of the available detox diets often include fruits that contain high amount of sugar and carbohydrates, people who are suffering from diabetes need to keep an eye on the kind of diet they will choose so it won’t complicate with their illness. Here are some of the common ways that you can use to flush detrimental toxins out of your system.
Carbohydrates should provide 45 – 65% of total daily calories. The type and amount of carbohydrate are both important. Best choices are vegetables, fruits, beans, and whole grains. These foods are also high in fiber. Patients with diabetes should monitor their carbohydrate intake either through carbohydrate counting or meal planning exchange lists.
Soluble fiber supplements, such as those that contain psyllium or glucomannan, may be beneficial. Psyllium is taken from the husk of a seed. It is found in laxatives (Metamucil), breakfast cereals (Bran Buds), and other products. Soluble fiber requires water to help dissolve, so people who increase their levels of soluble fiber should drink more water.
Cinnamon also acts as a potent antioxidant, lending additional health benefits to the diet. Finally, it adds zero calories, sugars, or fat to your meal, so you can use it generously without any adverse effects.
Unfortunately, a lot of diabetes drugs don’t actually work, or work with limited success and a lot of potential side effects. Science has shown that—in terms of diabetic management—these drugs are more dangerous than anything.
When it comes to obesity, most people turn to fat, but people should blame flour and sugar. In fact, fat helps to keep your blood glucose levels steady, keeps you feeling full and transports minerals and vitamins throughout the body.
Timing. Patients with diabetes should not skip meals, particularly if they are taking insulin. Skipping meals can upset the balance between food intake and insulin and also can lead to low blood sugar and even weight gain if the patient eats extra food to offset hunger and low blood sugar levels.
It has been reported that Aloe vera gel and its derived phytosterols have a long-term blood glucose level control effect and would be useful for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Aloe vera can lower not only the glucose but also the triglycerides level which are often high in diabetic patients. (7)
As a general rule, juicing vegetables delivers many more health benefits than juicing fruits, and that’s especially true for a person dealing with diabetes. Juicing can be an effective nutritional therapy, but it must be done properly and with the right ingredients. Diabetics should avoid juicing too many fruits because they are unable to properly metabolize the high natural sugar content of fruit juices.
In relation to type 2 diabetes, eating most food earlier in the day may be associated with lower levels of overweight and obesity and other factors that reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Talk with your health care team before you start a new physical activity routine, especially if you have other health problems. Your health care team will tell you a target range for your blood glucose level and suggest how you can be active safely.
