Never before in the history of mankind have we had an emergency need to lower blood sugar. Diabetes and obesity both have been on a steady rise since the early 1970’s when we replaced the fat in our food with high fructose corn syrup and were seduced by the low-fat but high-sugar content food industry. The body has elegant mechanisms to raise blood sugar when it is needed for energy but our bodies are not genetically designed to handle large hits of sugar from foods then lower that digested sugar in the blood.
Once you are hypoglycemic your risk of developing diabetes increases by 70%. The Sugar YoYo is step one in that direction.
Consumption of refined sugar causes deficiencies in nutrients that regulate blood sugar, especially thiamine (B1). It is important to consider the three organs involved in blood sugar regulation when treating sugar handling issues. They are the Pancreas, Adrenals and the Liver. Most people I see in my practice want help with sugar-handling issues and cravings. As soon as we get refined sugars, obvious and hidden, out of our diet and balance those systems, we have much more energy and stamina. Health is the first wealth.
