I want to explore the nuances of Diabetes and how we approach finding your Diabetes relief.
We’ll start from a medical perspective.
Simply put, Diabetes is your body’s inability to regulate glucose or blood sugar. From now on, whenever I say glucose or sugar I want you to think fuel.
Why fuel? Well, glucose is the fuel that runs every cell in your body.
But this fuel has to be provided in exact amounts. Too much and the cell will pop like a balloon with too much air. Too little and the cell will die of starvation.
I’m going to use the web of dysfunction to describe what happens with glucose regulation goes wrong.
The graphic above is our web of dysfunction. In the center is Diabetes or you. At the very top we have the brain.
Symptoms of sugar regulation that affect the brain are:
- brain fog
- or short term memory loss.
Diabetics will typically have issues with the gut, things like food sensitivities, constipation, diarrhea, or even leaky gut.
Now diabetics, as well as people with insulin resistance or Reactive Hypoglycemia, may also have problems with the liver. And some symptoms we would see with liver problems would be cholesterol being elevated, Triglycerides, even have greasy stools.
Diabetics can also have problems with circulations. Symptoms like cold hands and feet, erectile dysfunction or sexual dysfunctions, numbness and tingling in the hands or fingers and amputations in some cases.
People with problems regulating glucose can also have adrenal symptoms, things like poor sleep, fatigue, stress management, and also headaches.
Poor glucose regulation and thyroid problems can go hand and hand, symptoms like weight gain, hair loss, mood swings, nervousness, and even infertility.
So what are we ultimately trying to achieve?
Quite simply– balance.
Now that sounds simple, but can we do it on our own? Probably not.
Most people will need guidance, direction, and mostly support.
The question I get most often is where do I start? Well, it’s pretty straight forward. We have to find out what’s broken. We use very specific lab tests that will help identify the triggers that are fueling your Diabetes.
Why do most people fail at getting healthy?
They lack guidance and support. Here’s the support we offer: we eliminate trial and error by designing a program based specifically on your lab test results, one on one consultations where we’ll sit down and make certain that you stay on track, we offer telephone support, if you have a question you call we’ll answer your question. If you have a very busy lifestyle, we can even do this through the internet.
