Blood Sugar Balance
I talk extensively about blood sugar in my first Cooking Without book, but I want to mention it here because I feel that raising the blood sugar is the most important thing we can do on the path to good health.
Blood sugar is about energy and with insufficient energy the body cannot detoxify and heal. Energy is needed not only for us to complete our everyday tasks, but also for those internal organs which have jobs to do in order to keep our bodies running smoothly. Blood sugar is also needed for the brain. Insufficient blood sugar to the brain means we get symptoms such as headaches, muzzy heads, poor concentration, anxiety and depression.
The following chart (available in my book) shows a day in the life of your low blood sugar. Whenever I show this chart to groups and ask if there is anyone who doesn’t have a blood sugar problem, the answer is always negative. In fact, in 14 years in practice as a nutritional therapist, I have not met a patient who did not have a blood sugar problem. Blood sugar problems underlie all health problems. Hopefully no-one will have all the symptoms listed below but anyone experiencing some of these has room for health improvements.
