Why Blood Sugar?
Blood sugar dis-regulation is our 21st century global health crisis, and a contributing factor to Diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer.
According to a report released in July 2017, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “More than 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. The report finds that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans – 9.4 percent of the U.S. population –have diabetes. Another 84.1 million have pre-diabetes, a condition that if not treated often leads to type 2 diabetes within five years. There are so many forces against us when it comes to processed and convenience foods. Our busy schedules demand time away from the kitchen and we are outsourcing our nutritional needs like never before.
I believe balancing your blood sugar is one of the most important things you can do for our body on a daily basis.
High blood sugars contribute to diabetes, weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, cancer, and cardiovascular risk. High blood sugar is a conversation about the quality of our blood that is circulating through our entire body and is the life force oxygenating our cells, bringing nutrients to all of our tissues and organs, This same blood passes through our heart, liver, and the smallest nooks and crannies in the body to give them nourishment, including behind the eyes, into the extremities, and the filtering system of the kidneys. If the sugars in the blood are too high for too long, our blood is compromised, becoming too sweet, thick, and viscous, like honey. Thick blood stressed these organs and tissues, and can’t pass through those nooks and crannies, or get into the cells. So blood sugar is essentially blood that is not able to perform its job throughout the body. High blood sugar becomes an entire full body metabolic issue. And because it stressed our metabolic hormones, namely Insulin, it then becomes a hormonal issue and put our entire endocrine system out of balance.
The foundation of our health and vitality lies with balancing our hormones. Blood sugar balance is hormonal balance. Our body is always striving for balance, and in science we call this balance Homeostasis. The more we can support the body with homeostasis, our hormones become balanced and the body has what it needs, it is not in fight or flight, it is relaxed and can repair, and be calm and healthy. I have seen this countless times with my clients, and have witnessed their health and vitality return when restore their health through the lens of blood sugar balance.
