Hypoglycemia and Diabetes are common blood sugar regulation disorders affecting millions of men, women and children. Medication can quickly be prescribed to regulate the symptoms however there are other solutions which are safer and lasting.
Three non-drug solutions include neuro-regulation, food and, physical movement.
Neuro-regulation involves evaluating and removing restriction or disruption of the lines of communication between the brain and the pancreas. The pancreas is the main organ responsible for releasing a hormone named insulin affecting blood sugar levels. The pancreas receives instructions from the brain telling it when and when not to release insulin. If this communication is down, disrupted or interfered with, the pancreas will not operate properly. So it makes sense if you are having problems regulating your blood sugar to check here first. Chiropractic physicians are spinal specialists of choice to evaluate the spine for nerve interference. Using adjustments to the spine chiropractors remove nerve interference allowing the brain to communicate with the body properly and restore normal function.
Food can over stress the pancreas or help it work normally. It’s not complicated. The more we stress it the more it will break. If you want to support your pancreases normal function eat mostly vegetables. We suggest applying an 80/20 approach. 80 % vegetables and seasonal fruits, nuts and seeds and 20% animal protein. It’s a good start.
Avoid any and all foods that contain more than 5 ingredients on the label and words you don’t recognize.
Move it. Increasing our daily physical movement is a big help. It helps us burn the sugars we consume assisting in the blood sugar regulation process.
Preventing and managing blood sugar is not difficult, it just requires action on your part. See your chiropractor regularly, eat mostly vegetables and move it!
