November was the Diabetes Awareness Month. Do you know that diabetes has skyrocketed 71 % between 1990-2013 in the US? And between 2001-2009 a 30% increase in children…
That really tells us something is v e r y wrong…
The good news is that you can reverse the symptoms by learning how to eat. It’s funny though that we have to learn how to eat!
So far I have had 19 people at the Clinic that successfully reversed their symptoms and are free of medications.
NUMBER 1: Eat the right kind of foods
It never ceases to amaze me what they serve kids in hospitals who are diagnosed with diabetes.
When you open the refrigerators they are stacked with FUN LIGHT and other LIGHT products.
The hospital staffs inform the parents and the kids that they can “live as usual”. They even recommend in their brochures that the kids should eat donuts, muffins, Frostie’s, potato chips and Mac and cheese! In my world this is criminal.
The best foods you can eat when you have gotten diabetes are:
FRUITS: Yes, you can eat fruits, especially berries like cranberries, cherries, black currant, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries. Apples, grape fruits, kiwis, papayas, oranges, lemons, limes are just fine too. All fruits contain phytonutrients called anthocyanins.
The conventionally grown foods are devoid of nutrients, so I always recommend supplementing with Juice Plus+ to fill the gap of what we eat and what we need per day in terms of nutrition.
VEGGIES: All veggies, but leafy greens are especially good. Like spinach, kale, Pak Choy, all cabbage like broccoli, cauliflower, parsnips, carrots, lettuce etc. etc. They are packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients that the body needs
ONIONS: Onions and garlic are full of chromium for one thing, which is a regulator of blood sugar levels.
LEGUMES: They are full of fiber and vegetarian proteins. I’m talking about all kind of beans, chickpeas and lentils
FISH: Wild caught salmon and cod are very beneficial. They contain omega-3 fatty acids that are vital for maintaining healthy insulin levels.
SPICES: For instance cinnamon; It is known to regulate blood sugar levels
How to combine the foods are KEY
NEVER mix animal proteins like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese and dairy with carbs like potato, rice, pasta or bread in the same meal.
If you want animal protein, eat it with salads, veggies and mushrooms.
If you want carbs, eat it with salads, veggies and mushrooms.
FATS: Real fats like organic butter, real organic cold pressed olive oil, avocado oil, organic cold pressed coconut oil, Ghee, which is clarified butter.
Stay away from these foods
All refined carbs: like soda pops, breakfast cereals, pasta, white breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, donuts, snack chips, crackers and white rice. They aren’t called fast carbohydrates for nothing. What that means is that the glucose creates surges of blood sugar in your bloodstream that spikes very fast and plummets as fast.
Artificial sweeteners: They are a scourge! MSM convinces us that it is healthy for us! No sugar! Zero sugar! They are e x t r e m e l y dangerous. You have probably heard of Aspartame?
It is converted into wood alcohol when broken down…
According to researchers they can cause Alzheimer’s, Fibromyalgia, Epilepsy, Brain tumours, Parkinson’s, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
How you can help the body more
Cleanse your body from the inside twice a year. You are probably very good at changing oil and filter in your car? So why don’t you give your body the same attention?
Take probiotics. It is the good bacteria in your gut. We have too little of them.
Eat Juice Plus+ capsules. They bridge the gap between the food you eat and the nutrients you need per day.
Chew your food until it’s liquid…every bite… J
Eat more Magnesium. We are all deficient of it.
Get your Omega-3. One very good natural source is Chia seeds.

To your health!
