Q I'm type 2 diabetic. Should I avoid juicing fruits?

A I think everyone should avoid juicing fruits. I believe the only reason to juice fruits is if you’re adding them to a vegetable juice that is bitter or harsh, and then just enough to make it palatable. Without the fiber from the fruit the juice just hits the system too fast, and due to the volume of fruit needed to make juice that usually means lots of sugar hitting the system.

Eating whole fruit with all the fiber is the best way to consume fruit.

Dr Gabrial Cousens of The Tree of Life Healing Center and Dr Brian Clement, from Hippocrates Health Institute have both done much research on diabetes and healing people through diet. The results of some of their research can be seen in DVD, Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days I think you'll enjoy this fresh perspective and the knowledge that healing is possible.
