High Blood Sugar and Acupuncture
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are extremely helpful for problems with blood sugar. High blood sugar is also known as hyperglycemia. Chinese herbal remedies, acupuncture and nutritional therapy can be equally effective for hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar. Glycemic health, or regulating and balancing blood glucose levels is an important focus for your total wellness and natural medicine plan.
When a person is suffering from high blood sugar, their pancreas is not able to absorb the excess glucose in the bloodstream. The excess sugar in their blood is often not being absorbed because they have another condition called insulin resistance. The insulin is not allowing sugar to be absorbed into their cells.
Obviously the most important aspect of treating a high blood sugar problem is food therapy. Eating foods with a low glycemic index can really help.
Herbs and Chinese herbal medicine can also be incredibly effective for high blood sugar issues. We have created a program for high blood sugar and sugar cravings at the Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic in Asheville, North Carolina.
Our program for high blood sugar, weight loss and sugar cravings, includes using certain foods and nutrition along with a particular herbal remedy called Dia-Slim. Dia-Slim dramatically lowers your blood sugar when it is high, but DiaSlim can also balance your blood sugar if it is too low. Therefore our program is used to balance blood sugar and can be used for both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.
One of the problems of having high blood sugar is that a person experiences sugar cravings. When a person’s sugar cravings are under control they can make wiser food choices and making wiser food choices helps a person to heal.
