Detoxing for Diabetes: A 10 Day Journey to Better Health

If you had told me a year ago that I’d be gluten- and dairy-free, I would have laughed and then served up a huge lasagna. This Italian American practically has pasta running through her veins — which likely contributed to my current health dilemma.

After my type 2 diabetes diagnosis in January, I began to read everything I could get my hands on about reversing the disease through diet and exercise. I watched Forks Over Knives and omitted animal products, saw a nutritionist and counted carb grams, and through it all, I drank a lot of kale.

Then, I picked up Dr. Mark Hyman’s book Blood Sugar Solution. In it, he explains how common allergens like gluten, dairy, alcohol, and caffeine affect our bodies, even if we’re not technically allergic. Certain foods are more likely to cause inflammation, which is a stress response that the body produces when we are fighting off something. A little inflammation helps you heal and then goes away, a ton of it hurts you and becomes constant. Inflammation and insulin resistance go hand in hand, and one of the ways to combat diabetes is to remove the triggering foods.



Everything You Need to Know About Detoxing

The scene: You’re not feeling so great after last night’s five-course work dinner situation including—not one, but three—desserts. As you lay on the couch binge-watching Game of Thrones (spoiler: it’s not worth it) reevaluating everything about your on-again, off-again relationships with whisky on the rocks: maybe I should do a detox. Your best friend’s colleague did one where he nixed sugar lost 20 pounds, so it’s gotta be a good idea, right?

Whether it’s with alcohol or caffeine; carbs or sugars, detoxing is super trendy right now. And there’s a lot of money behind this idea of finding a quick fix to feeling (or looking) better. Take the juice cleanse industry, for starters. Market research hub reports that it was a $4.3 billion market in the U.S. in 2017 and is expected to reach $8.1 billion by 2024. And that’s just juice cleansing. Which, like much of the “detox” industry, feels like a scam.

“People are looking for different ways to recover their health,” says Arie Schwartz, CEO of the Abrahamson Center, a chain of facilities focusing on the treatment of addictions ranging from sugar to smoking. “The toxicity in our body appears in different ways, ranging from a slow metabolism or craving for sweets or different substances to a lack of sleep and even depression. Most people have found detoxing as a way out of all these symptoms. A natural way to heal the system, reset it, and adopt a healthier lifestyle.”

The expectations:

I’ll admit it: Detoxing my system without fasting sounded too good to be true.

I have stayed far away from juice cleansing and other conventional treatments purely because I love my grub too much.

When I saw bloggers boasting about how flat their tummies were after trying out SkinnyMint’s teatox, I was sold on trying it out.
