Eat Nuts

Eating nuts linked with lower risk of fatal heart attack and stroke

Eating nuts two or more times per week was associated with a 17% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality compared to consuming nuts once every two weeks. The connection was robust even after adjusting for factors that could influence the relationship such as age, sex, education, smoking, and physical activity. Nut intake was inversely associated with the other outcomes but lost significance after adjustment.

Eat More Fiber

According to Dr. Sadeghi, fiber-rich foods are generally enough to boost and maintain a healthy gut biome. While companies claim to have packaged the secret to digestion via fermented foods—such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kombucha, wine, and cheese—the truth is there is no recognized scientific evidence to support these claims. Dr. Sadeghi stated, “There are no studies which have actually looked at whether these probiotics get incorporated into the gut mucosa or get discarded into the stool. In fact, we don’t even know for sure they aren’t harmful. In a recent study published in Cell, researchers looked at whether probiotics get incorporated into the mucosa post antibiotic therapy to restore gut health.[1] They did colonoscopies on two groups of individuals and samples their biome. Both groups received antibiotics. One group received probiotics and the other group did not receive probiotics. They wanted to know whether taking probiotics restored the health of the gut faster. To their surprise, the group that didn’t get probiotics recovered the biome faster!”

Natural Food Interaction (NFI) Diet and DM2

We spoke about the results, which will be published and constitute an unprecedented 97.2 percent type 2 diabetes remission rate. Meaning that based on current data, anyone suffering from type 2 diabetes has a near 100 percent probability of entering full clinical remission within 20 weeks if they follow the NFI diet.

Diabetes runs in my family.  My father had diabetes and my youngest brother also has the disease.  I do a lot of reading and research to better understand what I personally need to do to never develop diabetes.  The NFI diet sounds amazing.  This is just another powerful piece of evidence that supports adopting a mostly plant based diet.

If you’re as excited about this news as I am please share these articles and links.  Your diabetic family and friends will thank you.
