Adequate blood sugar or glucose levels are important for good health. This is because sugar is a major source of energy for the body. So, since we really can’t do much without energy, then you understand the significant role of adequate blood sugar levels.
However, you also get messages from the media and the medical industry about how bad sugar is, and to stay away from it. And, this is true. But, there is important information to know about blood sugar.
First, know that all sugar is not created equal. Natural glucose is good for your body. Examples are raw, unprocessed honey; medjool dates; and natural sugar from whole, fresh fruit. Your brain, in particular, needs a large quantity of glucose to maintain healthy cognitive functioning. However, having too much at once makes it difficult for your body to process. Thus, you have the symptoms shown in the pics, below. This is known as hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar.
Having hyperglycemia regularly that is difficult to control is a common symptom of diabetes (both types I and II).
Additionally, know that processed sugar – the kind found in unhealthy sweets, such as donuts, candy bars, and soda pop – is not natural or healthy.
On the contrary, when your body doesn’t get enough natural sugar, then it shows signs of lack of energy. Therefore, it has a difficult time performing its normal functions. This is referred to as hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar.
There is a lot of misinformation out there. Thankfully, there is a realization that Type II diabetes, in particular, can likely be controlled or eliminated by adopting a healthier lifestyle. Many people are trying natural and safe ways to stabilize their blood sugar levels.
It’s now common for people to be diagnosed as “borderline diabetic” or “pre-diabetic.” Many also are interested in starting to utilize more safe and natural ways to stabilize their blood sugar, especially when they discover they are pre-diabetic. They often consider it a warning to start making lifestyle changes now, in order to avoid potential severe health issues in the future.
Essential oils are one way to address unstable blood sugar levels, safely and naturally.* Keep in mind, however, that you should check with your doctor regarding using essential oils, especially if you have been diagnosed with diabetes already and are currently taking pharmaceutical medications, as every individual is different.
We encourage using essential oils with the assistance of an experienced holistic practitioner to ensure safe and proper use.
Coriander Seed essential oil can help lower glucose levels, according to natural health advocate, David “Avocado” Wolfe. Coriander is also commonly known as cilantro or Chinese parsley. Surprisingly, coriander seeds help stimulate the secretion of insulin to lower blood sugar.* At his website, David says to mix 2-3 drops of Coriander Seed oil into a carrier oil. Rub the blend into the soles of your feet.
Pink or White Grapefruit essential oil is also known to lower blood sugar spikes.* If you have a blood sugar spike, immediately apply 2 drops of Grapefruit essential oil on or under the tongue. Hold the oil in the mouth for about 2 minutes and swallow. Blood sugar is lowered within 20 minutes to an hour.*
Cinnamon Bark essential oil is very potent. Use it in a diffuser; dab a few drops on your wrist or clothes; or inhale it throughout the day, straight from its original bottle. Alternatively, soak an inhaler cotton insert with about 10 drops of Cinnamon essential oil and carry in your pocket or purse for convenience. Cinnamon helps prevent overeating, sugar cravings and fatigue, which may help lower blood sugar, indirectly.* This may be a natural alternative to pharmaceutical medications.*
ALWAYS BE SURE TO USE THERAPEUTIC-GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS FOR QUALITY AND EFFECTIVENESS.
Bio Source Naturals’ essential oils are the perfect choice!
