I have diverticulosis ,hi cholesterol and hi blood sugar I don't know what to eat or do whit my nutri bullet .can you please help me? Thanks
I actually just read about a new study that came out showing that diverticulosis is much less risky (at turning into diverticulitis) than previously thought. However, we all know that one study does not prove anything so to be on the safe side it is recommended to consume a diet high in fiber. This may reduce the mild symptoms of diverticulosis, as well as prevent inflammation and infection of the intestines. If it does progress into diverticulitis, then a low fiber diet is recommended during flareups.
We have some great recipes on this site for heart health in addition to the ones in the Natural Healing Foods book. Submit a search for "cholesterol" to find articles, recipes and healing foods. Almost anything you put in a NutriBlast will benefit you. These foods are filled with fiber and antioxidants...two important components to help reduce cholesterol. Focus on soluble fiber - this type binds "bad" LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. They contain a great amount of soluble fiber, which helps bind cholesterol and remove it from your body! Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods.
Outside of NutriBlasting, I'd recommend cutting back on animal based foods (meats, dairy, eggs, etc.) as these contain saturated fats and additional dietary cholesterol that have been shown to increase blood cholesterol levels. With continuous NutriBlasting...over time, you will more than likely see your numbers drop!
Same with blood sugar - we have a lot of valuable information on this site - type in Diabetes or blood sugar into the home search bar! Here is one to get you started: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/blasting-blood-sugar-control
