31 Dec Blood Sugar Essentials
Blood sugar balance is a foundational process regulated by the hormonal system, and is a result of what, how, and when we eat. The hormonal system helps to maintain homeostasis in the body, and is always striving for this balance. When out of balance, inflammation takes root, which leads to dis-ease.
When we approach hormone balance with blood sugar in mind, we can create a strong foundation for optimal health.
Today we are facing an epidemic of blood sugar dis-regulation showing up in most chronic inflammatory diseases, including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and alzheimers. Understanding the foundations of how our hormonal system works, is essential to changing the collective path we are on today.
We’ll take a deep dive into the hormonal system as a whole, with particular focus on the adrenals, thyroid gland and the pancreas, learning about the circadian rhythms of each gland, and how to honor those rhythms and create habits that bring the body into balance. We’ll go deeper into blood sugar balance to learn how to navigate this in our own life to create balance for the entire hormonal system, which is the seat of health.
You’ll learn more about how food meets your physiology, using ancestral foods and preparation practices that the body knows, and how best to align your diet and lifestyle habits to be in sync with your own internal hormonal rhythms, so you can make the best choices when it comes to quantity and quality for you and your family. You’ll be prompted to create a plan to put this in action.
