A daily tablespoon of ground flax seeds for a month appears to improve fasting blood sugars, triglycerides, cholesterol, and hemoglobin A1c levels in diabetics.
This reminds me of my video, Prunes vs. Metamucil vs. Vegan Diet, or some of my videos on various foods that may control blood sugar (Amla Versus Diabetes); weight (Fat Burning Via Flavonoids); cholesterol (Dried Apples vs. Cholesterol); or sexual dysfunction (Watermelon as Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction). Yes, these foods may help; but, why not get at the root of the problem, and try to reverse the condition altogether with a healthier diet overall? That’s why I called my 2012 wrap-up Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death.
The two books I feature are the original classic from 2003, Defeating Diabetes (co-authored by my favorite dietician, Brenda Davis), and then, in 2007 and 2012, books from two of my medical mentors: Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program To Reverse Diabetes Now, and Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s The End of Diabetes. In fact, Fuhrman’s book was so new, it wasn’t even out when I recorded this video for my Volume 12 DVD!
This is my third flax video of the year. See my previous two videos to learn what flax can do against prostate cancer: Flaxseeds vs. Prostate Cancer, and Was It the Flaxseeds, Fat Restriction, or Both? Next, we move on to Flaxseeds for Sensitive Skin.
