Fasting Blood Sugar Numbers – Did You Know?

I Didn’t Know That …

A fasting blood sugar level over 100mg/dl is considered a pre-diabetic condition.a fasting blood sugar level over 100mg/dl is considered a pre-diabetic condition. I didn’t realize how devastatingly close that is to 126mg/dl which is the diagnosis number for diabetes. I also didn’t know that numbers much lower than these are what start the process of illness in the body. That’s right, blood sugar levels determine what your risk is for heart disease, cancer, kidney and nerve damage as well as dementia and stroke.

Having a hard time losing weight? Do you feel like you are aging faster than you should be? The process of getting diabetes begins with insulin resistance. It has been said by many doctors that understand the process of blood sugar malfunctions in the body that it is the major cause of aging and death in the developed world.

Diabetes has to be one of the, if not THE, most preventable disease that is being talked about and managed today. Obesity and diabetes go hand in hand. Did you know that gaining just 11 to 16 pounds doubles your risk for getting type 2 diabetes? Gaining 17 to 24 pounds triples that risk! Now I ask you, if that is the case, why do we have soda machines in offices and schools throughout our country? Why do we promote liquid sugar drinks, liquid calories, that are instantly absorbed into the blood stream? Products such as soda, most juices, sports drinks, and the like along with refined carbohydrates like bread, rice, potatoes, pasta are the most consumed foods and beverages in this country.

We need to wake up and start making major changes in this country if we are going to live long and prosper. Otherwise, who will be caring for us as the year’s progress and we get sicker and sicker and sicker and sicker. And I have to ask myself what our quality of life will be like then? Do you really want to live in a body that is in constant pain and rotting from the inside out? Well, I guess in the big scheme of things, you won’t even know it because dementia will set in and you’ll be clueless? Right? Hummmm now that is something to ponder and something we won’t know until we get there.

Supporting Drug Free Meat

Posted in Health, Knowledge is Power Series, SOLUTION!, Take Action! on 22.10.14

Share

Antibiotics used in PigsHelp me help all of us.  We are all under the threat from antibiotic-resistant superbugs, making us vunerable to common, once treatable infections. A remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used by the meat and poultry industry so that factory farm animals can grow faster and survive crowded and unsanitary conditions.  Support meat without drugs http://www.meatwithoutdrugs.org/#watch. Lets unite and stop the abuse before it is too late. Tell your supermarkets and local farmers, “drug free meat for me!”   We can be the catalysts to turn the tide on this abuse. We can show our support for companies that don’t take our health for granted.

This is another must see quick video compliments of Chipotle:

LH and FSH, The Hormones

Posted in Hormones on 18.10.14

Share

I Didn’t Know That (IDKT) …

 

LH-FSH

LH is a leutenizing hormone which means it is a pituitary hormone. LH instructs the ovaries and testes to produce more androgen (steroid type) hormones (aka – testosterone/ progesterone). This is often times seen elevated in states of androgen deficiency (low testosterone/progesterone).

FSH is a follicular stimulating hormone which means it is a pituitary hormone. FSH instructs the ovaries and testes to produce more fertility hormones (estrogens and dihydrotestosterone), as well as helping mature ovarian follicles and testicular spermatogenesis. This is often times seen elevated after menopause and with severe andropause (male menopause).

Want to know more about LH and FSH hormones as well as other hormones that can affect your overall great health? You can connect with Coach D, Donna Appel at A Voice For Change at www.avoiceforchange.com  or send an email to her at donna.appel@newmedicinefoundation.com or donna@avoiceforchange.com.

Can you shed some more insight about taking hormone replacements that might ease my fears? There is so much conflicting information out there that I just don’t know what to think. Thank you.

Pink Slime Making a Come Back in Our Schools

Posted in Alternative Healthcare, Food Addiction, Health, Nutrition on 23.09.13

IDKT (I Didn’t Know That)…

What is your child eating?

… pink slime is making a comeback. It seems to be that time of year again and pink slime is coming back into the news. Last year Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota were the three states that were buying the controversial USDA approved ground beef better known as pink slime for use in their school lunch programs. This year, Politico reports that as of September 3rd, 2013, two million pounds of this yuck has been purchased by seven states. Read their article: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/pink-slime-school-lunches-96502_Page2.html

I’m so disappointed. Why would districts in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia, in addition to the three that were doing it last year, continue to put our children in further health danger by having them eat this disgusting meat-like substance? They say it cuts the cost of ground beef by approximately three percent, but is anyone asking the big questions like: What’s the cost to our children’s health? Are we being penny wise and pound foolish? I think we are.

You Must Love Yourself First

Posted in Food Addiction, Misc Articles, Weight Loss on 21.09.13

Share

loveyourselfAs a health coach and leader in the field of using hCG for detoxification, I thought I would write a bit about our beliefs. What I have realized is that so much of the detoxification process involves the brain and how we look at ourselves from our conscious and subconscious mind. The bottom line is that we all must must must love ourselves to the core of our very being. If we are ever going to be successful in the “get healthy and/or lose weight” reality of our lives, or in any reality of our life for that matter, then we must must must be sure to love ourselves first and foremost.
