Sugar Cravings; Sugars in foods; Why we crave sugar!!

Friday, May 26th, 2017
Good morning! Challenges with maintaining our weight throughout life are going to be constant and inevitable. Sugar is constantly in the news lately – yes, manufacturers of our food deliberately add the exact amount which makes us addicted! No wonder it’s so challenging.
Diabetes in Australia is increasing at such a rapid rate that it’s estimated that 50% of us will have dementia by the age of 50within 25years – and diabetes is a major cause.  This is ridiculous!  We’ve modified our food, DNA and genes so much these days our cells become primed to develop chronic illness such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease so much earlier in our bodies than even 30 years ago.
May favourite 3 products for sugar cravings are:
1. Bactrex and Ultra Flora SB Dysbiosis – for underlying candida, fungus, bacterial infections that make us want to eat sweets (they love a sweet, acidic environment!) 3-6 daily depending on the severity and combination of the infections.
2. Gymnema tablets – known as ‘the sugar killer’ in Indian – it’s a herb which over a period of time makes our tongue need less sweet. Long-term (2 year) studies have shown pancreatic cells regnerating with gymnema use. 4-6 daily when sugar cravings are bad.
3. Resist X – definitely a favourite – contains herbs and nutrients which reduce insulin resistance (pre-diabetes); increase cellular energy and work on eating away our tummy fat. 2-6 daily depending on energy levels, tummy fat stubborness, sugar cravings.

Blood Sugar Balancing: 5 Keys to Preventing Diabetes

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Blood sugar imbalances create so many problems for people today: but it is possible not only to prevent diabetes, but also in beginning the process of reversing diabetes.  We see so many people who have the beginning symptoms of sugar cravings or dizziness when it’s been a few hours since they’ve eaten.

What are the symptoms of blood sugar imbalances?

  • needing to eat regularly
  • dizziness if you haven’t eaten in a few hours
  • hungry within an hour of eating
  • sluggish liver – inability to lose weight, poor energy
  • (or hungry all the time)
  • mood disorders
  • hormonal imbalances such as PMT & PCOS
  • headaches and migraines
  • chocolate cravings

There are 5 keys to preventing diabetes:

  1. eat a protein snack every 3-4 hours: meats, nuts, cottage cheese, cheese, tofu
  2. eat fish for your dinner 3 x weekly along with salmon/sardines for lunch 3-4 x per week.
  3. maintain a healthy weight and/or work towards a more balanced BMI (body mass index)
  4. use products which balance your blood sugar: for example, we utilise products such as Metagenics Insulex, Resist X, Fibroplex, Meta Oil
  5. exercise regularly: 30 minutes daily (minimum) has been shown to balance blood sugar and help our cells to function –  usually blood sugar balancing is also about having insulin resistance, therefore the cells simply can’t take in insulin into the cells, and energy creation can’t happen effectively inside the cells.

Our solutions for blood sugar balancing:

  • We have a weight loss programme (and a payment plan to save you money) to start the process of fat loss.
  • We have a chronic pain programme (if pain is the reason exercise is difficult) which helps to reverse chronic pain conditions.
  • We have a hormonal balancing programme (and a payment plan to save you money) to balance all of the hormones in your body.  Hormones are everything!  Nothing happens in your body without a hormonal component.  Nothing!
  • We use frequency specific microcurrent and infrared saunas to detoxify the cell membranes to detoxify insulin and allow the insulin to be utilised the way that it should.

So there are many ways we can help you, here at New Leaf Natural Therapies for your hormonal imbalances.  See us today!
