Research studies show that harmful substances in the environment can promote the development of chronic illnesses like type two diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease and cancer. The chemicals in question are common ones that we're exposed to every day like pesticides, heavy metals, parabens, phthalates and bisphenol-A.
These toxins are everywhere. At any given time, we’re surrounded by dozens or even hundreds of them. We inhale them with the air we breathe, we absorb them through the pores in our skin, and we ingest them with the food we eat and the water we drink.
These toxins aren't only in our environment. They're already inside our bodies.
The National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, measures chemicals in the blood and urine of people taking part in National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys. The most recent report found chemicals linked to of diabetes in every single sample.
That’s right: 100 percent of the 2,500 people studied tested positive for toxins that have been shown to increase the risk of diabetes.
It may be impossible to avoid all of the toxic chemicals in our environment, but we can all take steps to minimize our exposure and remove them from our bodies through detoxification.
The Prediabetes Detox Program is a complete whole-body program that helps the body eliminate toxins through a healthy diet, regular exercise, plenty of sleep, supplements, and activities like relaxation and stress management. I've designed it with four goals in mind:
#1 Reduce the intake of harmful chemicals
#2 Mobilize and excrete toxins already stored inside the body
#3 Burn fat instead of accumulate fat
#4 Normalize blood sugar and insulin levels
Along with regular exercise and permanent changes in diet and lifestyle, detoxification is one of my most powerful tools for helping people reverse prediabetes and improve their health. Detox gives the body a break from environmental stress and replenishes the good food, good exercise, and good sleep we need to repair, rebuild, regenerate, and rejuvenate. Detoxification is like a tune-up for the whole body.
I’ve been using detox in my practice for more than a decade and I’ve found it to be particularly effective for reversing prediabetes. After my patients complete the program, they report more energy, better sleep, improved moods, weight loss, fat loss, and hunger control. Their bowels work better, their skin is clearer, their focus is sharper.
Their tastes have changed and their cravings for sugar and carbohydrate-rich foods have been replaced with a true desire to eat healthy, nourishing food. They are inspired to exercise because they know how much better they feel when it’s a regular part of their routine.
They feel a renewed sense of vitality and get sick less often. Minor complaints like indigestion, bloating, and puffiness often resolve spontaneously. And as an added bonus for normalizing blood sugar and insulin levels, they automatically reduce their risk of heart disease, stroke, obesity, dementia, and cancer.
They don’t just live longer, they live better. You can do it too.
