Dr Colbert has a lot of great books on treating medical conditions (causes not symptoms) with lifestyle changes and nutrition. In his book, “Eat to Live”, he talks about sugar leading to osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and elevated cholesterol. Dr Sinatra (cardiologist author of “The Great Cholesterol Myth”) also speaks about sugar being a major cause of high cholesterol. Sugar dings the artery walls. Dr Colbert suggested using stevia, chicory root, Lo Han and xylitol (in Balance Complete meal replacer). He says xylitol also kills the bacteria of dental disease. Xylitol is in Young Living Dentarome Ultra and the new Aroma Bright. Dr Colbert says don’t use nutrasweet, or splenda. He says ” the Ramazzini Foundation of Oncology’s study proves aspartame to cause 6 kinds of cancer”. I like stevia (NuStevia from NuNaturals). Raw organic honey in moderation is ok. Wheat bread turns to sugar in digestion. Avoid wheat. Dr Colbert likes ezekial 4:9 bread. I keep it in the freezer and take out one slice at a time. It is from sprouted grains.
Dr Colbert says to avoid Canola oil ( they use hexane to process it). Use clarified butter (ghee), organic butter, macadamia nut oil or coconut oil in cooking. Olive oil is ok if you are not using it to cook with high heat. It has a low smoke point and can release free radicals if heated. See the book “Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill” by Udo Erasmus. He speaks of the dangers of eating rancid fats.
