Hypoglycaemia

(Low Blood Sugar)

What does this mean?

In plain language it is the inability of the body to handle sugar in large amounts that most people seem to consume today. It is a case of body overload of some things such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Stress
  • Sugar
  • Tobacco

Hypoglycaemia is the over secretion by the pancreas of insulin in response to blood sugar or glucose rapidly rising.

All carbohydrates are broken down by the body into simple sugars i.e. carbohydrates such as vegetables, grains, fruits including also normal table sugar. Sugar enters the blood stream in the form of glucose and blood sugar rises. It is the pancreas secreting too much of the hormone insulin into the blood trying to bring the sugar levels back to normal causing the blood sugar to plummet below the necessary level to maintain wellness.

The brain and all other cells of the body need glucose for fuel, if the level of glucose falls to low the cells of the body are starved of the needed fuel causing both physical and emotion symptoms.

Some of the symptoms of hypoglycaemia are:

  • A craving for sweets
  • Allergies
  • Blurred vision
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Crying spells
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Faintness
  • Fatigue
  • Forgetfulness
  • Headaches
  • Heart palpitations
  • Inner trembling
  • Insomnia
  • Mental confusion
  • Mood swings
  • Nervousness
  • Outbursts of temper
  • Phobias
  • Sudden hunger
Important Dietary Facts

With this condition it is not advisable to follow any of the high animal protein diets (you know the type I am talking about, we have all tried them). Even though this type of diet may control things, it is harmful in other aspects and would mean changing one illness for a host of others such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney damage
  • Premature ageing

The best diet for all hypoglycaemic sufferers is the health diet or a high natural carbohydrate-low animal protein diet which I call the anti-hypoglycaemia diet using the following:

  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Grains
  • Fruits
  • Milk
  • Milk products
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Vegetables
  • Vegetable oils

The basis of this anti-hypoglycaemia diet should be whole grains, seeds and nuts.

The body gets and increased tolerance to sugars and carbohydrates from vitamins C and B as they help to normalise sugar metabolism. The adrenals which are often exhausted by hypoglycaemia are helped by B6, B complex and Pantothenic acid. The Glycogen stored in the tissues and muscles is improved by taking Vitamin E and sea water and Potassium help by supplying essential trace elements that the sugar metabolism system needs and also normalise the balance of minerals.
