Finally, too often we look at cleansing as a special event. It can be, but never forget that your body is built to cleanse 24/7. This means you can adapt any of the principles we’ve been demonstrating to your own needs, desires, and circumstances. For example, if you want to include beans or rice in an otherwise nearly all vegetable and fruit cleanse, that is fine. You will cleanse, although it won’t be quite as intense as a high-nutrient liquid cleanse or a cleanse such as that discussed herein. But that doesn’t matter for most people and it does do the job, so don’t get too caught up in the hype; rather, determine your needs, your willingness, and your capacity and adapt your approach accordingly.

Regardless of the form, soy products have a deserved reputation for providing high-quality protein that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. In fact, soy is a great way to help meet the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommendation to “replace protein foods that are high in solids fats (such as many meats) with choices that are lower in solid fats and calories.”
Research has shown that vitamin supplements have no benefit for heart disease and diabetes. Because of the lack of scientific evidence for benefit, the American Diabetes Association does not recommend regular use of vitamin supplements, except for people who have vitamin deficiencies.

Raw Foods Cleanse: This is a temporary cleanse that advocates eating uncooked vegetables combined with smaller amounts of raw nuts, seeds, and sprouts. It’s an excellent way to detoxify the colon, liver, and other systems in the body. It alleviates the body’s need to alkalize the acidic nature of blood that results from a modern, non-alkaline diet.

Shrimp salad bowl: Mix ⅓ c cooked brown rice and 2 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese. Scoop onto 2 c mixed greens, and top with 3 oz grilled or sautéed shrimp and 2 Tbsp reduced-fat dressing. Serve with 2 whole grain rye crispbread crackers, spread with 2 Tbsp low-fat ricotta or cottage cheese.
Some people find a break from their regular routines and temptations and a kick start to eating well helps them gather the momentum needed to take control of their health and make themselves well again. Once your sugar levels reduce and are under control it can be easier to think straight and resist your cravings.
The thought of going on a seven-day detox diet can be incredibly daunting. With so many different diets touted online and in books, it’s tough to tell which approach is right for you. And as do-it-yourself detox becomes more and more trendy, it’s all too easy to lose sight of the purpose of cleansing: focusing on whole, unprocessed foods that nurture your body and lighten your toxic load. A seven-day detox diet can be helpful if you use it as a way to begin a healthy way forward when it comes to your eating.
Refined sugar: Refined sugar rapidly spikes blood glucose, and soda, fruit juice and other sugary beverages are the worst culprits. These forms of sugar enter the bloodstream rapidly and can cause extreme elevations in blood glucose. (7) Even though natural sweeteners like raw honey and maple syrup are better options, they can still affect blood sugar levels, so only use these foods on occasion. Your best option is to switch to stevia, a natural sweetener that won’t have as much of an impact.
Because physical activity lowers your blood glucose, you should protect yourself against low blood glucose levels, also called hypoglycemia. You are most likely to have hypoglycemia if you take insulin or certain other diabetes medicines, such as a sulfonylurea. Hypoglycemia also can occur after a long intense workout or if you have skipped a meal before being active. Hypoglycemia can happen during or up to 24 hours after physical activity.
Because people with diabetes are at higher than average risk for heart disease, they should always check with their doctors before undertaking vigorous exercise. Moderate-to-high intensity (not high-impact) exercises are best for people who are cleared by their doctors. For people who have been sedentary or have other medical problems, lower-intensity exercises are recommended.
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.
There has been long history of dietary treatment of diabetes mellitus. Dietary treatment of diabetes mellitus was used in Egypt since 3,500 BC and was used in India by Sushruta and Charaka more than 2000 years ago. In the 18th century, John Rollo argued that calorie restriction could reduce glycosuria in diabetes.

Eating “live” super foods (e.g. the Death to Diabetes Super Meal Diet) is one of the best ways to help your body with the cleansing and detoxification until your body is healthy enough to perform the cleansing and detoxification on its own.
Glutathione: is a powerful antioxidant that protects you from heavy metal damage. Glutathione also supports liver enzymes that break down mold toxins and heavy metals. Unfortunately, your digestion will destroy normal glutathione, so consider using a liposomal glutathione supplement that makes it through your stomach. You can also supplement with pre-cursors such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), which your body can use to build glutathione on its own.
Your bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios might be a secret sugar bomb. Try picking unsweetened oatmeal, or shredded wheat cereal options, instead. “For sweetness, I like people to add their own fruit, rather than letting the cereal company add sugar,” Doerfler says.
And, if your cells can’t remove the toxins, then, your cells can’t repair and heal themselves. This is a key point to understand because if your cells can’t repair the damage being caused by your diabetes, then, it will be difficult to stabilize your blood glucose levels. You may be able to temporarily lower your blood glucose, but, eventually, it will start to creep back up.
While it sounds like a fad diet, “Master Cleanse” has been around for more than 50 years, initially developed to treat ulcers. Will you lose weight on “Master Cleanse”? Sure. Beyoncé lost weight and you likely would, too. The problem, as with most detox plans and other fad diets, is that you’ll regain the weight when you stop detoxing. And you can’t stay on “Master Cleanse” forever without running the risk of doing real harm to yourself. Other detox plans are perhaps less extreme by including fruits and vegetables, along with a lot of juice. It’s no surprise that detox diets have a celebrity following, either. Gwyneth Paltrow, Oprah, and Bill Clinton have all jumped on the detox bandwagon at one point or another.
For those who are suffering from diabetes, detoxifying with apple cider vinegar is a great help. This natural body cleanser does not contain any carbohydrates making it one of the best detox diet for diabetics. To prepare an apple cider vinegar detoxifying drink, you have to dilute the vinegar with enough amount of water according to your preference. Never drink the concentrated vinegar directly without diluting it as it may burn your esophagus.
As far as I’m concerned, my own innocent sweet tooth was doing serious damage to my health. It was a leading factor in weight gain, high blood pressure and out-of-sight cholesterol levels… not to mention a really bad example for my children.
First i would like to say thank you so much for this information. I stumbled across your videos looking on how to heal my PCOS and Diabetes. My endocrinologist practices integrative medicine. She does not want me to end up on insulin and then suggested surgery for a stomach sleeve -_- which I thought was unnecessary. I currently am on four different medications(Tradjenta, Metformin, Birth Control and Glimeperide) at the age of 26. She has included ALAmax Protect and Vitamin D as natural supplements to help me. I’ve added moderate activity and I’ve changed my diet to reflect no processed carbs/sugars. I still eat dairy however and after watching your video I know I need to leave it alone for a while (I love cheese!). I haven’t noticed huge changes and I’m thinking that all the medication I’ve been putting in my body for the last few years is not helping.
Note: For more details concerning a full body detox, read Chapter 9 of the Death to Diabetes book, or get the Cleansing/Detox ebook and Drug Weaning ebook to decrease the toxic load in your cells. This will help to rest your organs and prevent these complications as well as prevent your immune system from becoming weak, especially during flu season.
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?
Hey Alvin-Thanks for responding. I’ve been on a live juice fast w/organic vegetables fast for past http://www.diabetes.detox.diabetevv.com/diabetes-forums-type-2/diabetes.detox=n3506 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!
