When spring comes, the liver gets energized. And like me, yearning for a break from the cold, the liver wants to get on with it, too. And what is the liver’s job? Cleansing and detoxifying the blood! So this spring, I want to give you a regimen that will align you with the rising energy that is so much a part of spring and rebirth.
In my last blog, “The Missing Piece of the Diabetes Puzzle,” I shared an insight that’s ahead of its time. One of the reasons for the rampant rise in type-2 diabetes is that the range for normal blood sugar is too high.1 This explains why many people have symptoms, like extra weight around the middle and unexplained fatigue, for years before they are diagnosed. Now that I’ve shared this important information, I also want to offer ways for you to solve the puzzle.
Modern medicine operates much like a farmer who fixes his fences ONLY after the horses or cows have broken out. Hence, most serious health conditions incubate for years before they are diagnosed. This is certainly true of type 2 diabetes.
I have been counseling women on the underlying effects of sugar for about twenty years now. This began during a time when fat was thought to be the enemy, and eating lots of low-fat carbs and non-fat carbs were believed to promote heart health.
