5 Keys to Normalize Your Blood Sugar

As the summer winds down and the daylight grows shorter here in New England, I sigh.  I am such a summer person loving the extra outdoor activities, long hot days and feeling the heat and energy of the sun.

September is a beautiful month with bright sunshine and cooler temperatures the leaves begin to paint a rainbow of colors across the landscape.  This is a perfect time to transition to a healthy you and lower your blood sugar and rid yourself of all the disease management paraphernalia to manage any type of diabetes.

Key 1. is to Breathe deeply, into the heart center for the count of 5, hold for a count of 8 - 10 and out for 4.  This helps you to unwind and relax, a stress buster which is key of optimal health.  It also massages your lungs.

Key 2. is to Eliminate all white sugar, high fructose corn syrup and "foods" that convert quickly to sugar: alcohol, white pasta, white bread, whole grain bread, white potatoes and artificial sweeteners.

Key 3. is to not Count calories as it's a numbers game, not about nutrition absorption for optimal health.  Eat organic fruits and vegetables in a rainbow of colors, especially dark green leafy vegetables steamed, sauteed, blended in smoothies, juices and in salads.
Key 4. is to juice and  drink smoothies. Drink 8 oz. of water with fresh lemon juice 15 minutes prior to making/having your green juice. Then make smoothies for breakfast and snacks. Juicing has all of the nutrients that can cross over the cell wall barrier into the cells which allows the nutrients to give the cell elements what they require to do their jobs which in turn will increase your energy and lower your blood sugar.  From the time you drink your juice to the time it's nutrients make it over the cell walls is 15 minutes.  You can actually feel it happening. Smoothies have the fiber which will satisfy your hunger between meals, plus as a diabetic lower the sugar spike a too sweet juice will bring on.

Key 5. Self Love.  Only you can make the decision and the statement to your self that you love yourself enough to get away from the highly over processed foods that have hidden sugars, bad fats, chemicals, allergens and toxins. You love yourself enough to tune out the advertising, main stream misinformation and people telling you it won't work, you're crazy and more. You give your body and mind what they require, hightest not regular, to be able to function efficiently which will reduce/eliminate inflammation, keep your ph at the correct level and prevent or cure your diabetes.

Diabetes is a lifestyle dis-ease for all types. Genetics can play a part yet it has been proven genetics can be reversed/overcome with regards to disease.

Only a diabetic knows what it's like to have to check your sugar readings continually day in and day out, make sure you eat correctly to not pass out, deal with pain, all of the doctors appointments, paraphernalia purchases and usage, especially needles, unless you have the pump, and the need to inject insulin which is set up for you to continually need to do the routine until you die.  Nutrition in many ways as it was prior to the 1970's is paramount for optimal health, energy and to stave off gout, coronary heart disease, amputation of limbs, hospitalizations and death for the  millions caught up in the vicious diabetic cycle. There is a cure stop chasing it. It's the cause and it is known, lack of proper nutrition, inactivity, and highly toxic living, working and play environments which includes lack of pristine air to breath and water to drink and clean food to eat.
