Soy is also a source of niacin, folate, zinc, potassium, iron, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a fatty acid that can be converted into omega-3 fatty acids. Edamame is also high in fiber with 4 grams per serving.
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.
Plus, research shows that not-so-innocent sweet tooth could be doing serious damage to your health, leading to weight gain, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels and an increased risk for diabetes. In fact, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, author of The End of Dieting, says eating too much sugar should be considered just as dangerous as smoking cigarettes. “A diet with sugar and high glycemic index foods promotes all the leading causes of death in America,” he says. “I don’t see value in cutting out sugar for a few days and then going back to eating it, but I do see value in cutting it out permanently.”
Taking a fish oil supplement can help improve markers of diabetes by reducing triglyceride levels and raising HDL cholesterol levels. Research published in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences shows that omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are necessary for proper insulin function, preventing insulin intolerance and reducing inflammation. (14) To use fish oil as a natural remedy for diabetes, take 1,000 milligrams daily.
Not that many diabetics realize how much juicing can help. Some experts believe juicing properly can help improve and sometimes even reverse several health conditions, including type 2 diabetes. It only makes sense, since good nutrition can in many cases prevent the onset of the disease in the first place.
Coffee. Many studies have noted an association between coffee consumption (both caffeinated and decaffeinated) and reduced risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Researchers are still not certain if coffee protects against diabetes.
As a type 2 diabetic who also has had three heart attacks one of which I died and came back and two minor ones just a month ago…I also have high blood pressure…half a thyroid and an enlarged heart. When the two minor heart attacks occurred last month I decided I needed to make food the healer in my life.
However, in our fast-paced world it can be difficult to find the time to prepare healthy meals and exercise, especially, given our schedules and the easy availability and accessibility of convenience and fast foods.
A different person leaving than on arrival. I have a lot of energy, flatter tummy, brighter skin and a more positive outlook on life. I will definitely be returning. Melissa Lilley – 10th December 2015
Tomatoes have also been shown to combat inflammation due to nutrients such as carotenoids and bioflavonoids — that can help to lower the risk or heart disease, which causes a third of all deaths in the United States.
Our cultures relationship with food has been badly fractured. We have too much food, it’s not always good quality and a lot of it is deliberately designed to be addictive using sugar. None of this is good for any of us, but for those who have believed the stories that junk food is kind of okay, and also have the genetic disposition to issues with insulin, then our modern diet has been disastrous.
Garfield, I’m sorry to hear this. It’s terrible when you have to decrease your quality of life because of disease. Give me some details about your condition and also what you’ve heard from your doctors. If we can get more specific, I’ll be able to help you better.
My good man. Thanks for your insights and commentary. I loved the video and I’ve just taken your Saline wash and I’m going to purchase organic veggies for a 21 day cleanse. Did you say you’d been diagnosed with Type1 or 2? If yes, did you incur any nerve damage. I’ve not been to Dr for any diagnosis but experiencing burning feet sensation for past few weeks. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
The liver is the primary organ that performs the detoxification. The liver accomplishes this by using specific enzymes to transform the toxins into intermediate chemicals; and, other enzymes to transform the intermediate chemicals into harmless water-soluble substances that are then excreted in the bile or urine. But, if the liver becomes sluggish, clogged, or diabetic cleanse these toxins can begin to accumulate in the body’s tissues and blood.
