How To Wean Away High Blood Sugar Pt. 1

It Started With Eating Sweets Long Ago

The idea of having high blood sugar was a new thing to me a few years ago. I didn’t even know that blood could go high or low in sugar levels. Some people may not know right now, if they have high blood sugar or not. People may not know why if they suddenly pass out. So read this and get checked right away.

It seems that I usually had to have something sweet whenever I ate something ever since I can remember eating. I had no concept ever, that I would need to watch what I ate so, I ate anything that I wanted to.


Did Not Care For Vegetables

I didn’t care for nor understand the value of vegetables, nuts and fruit when I was a kid. I just ate whatever, whenever. In my young adult hood I would eat late night snacks as I watched television.

Beware Of Health Issues


As I got older though, things started changing. I started watching and paying attention to health issues especially when one day in my early forties I was having a birthday dinner out with a friend. I became very thirsty as my throat felt enormously dry. She said, “my, aren’t you drinking a lot of water all of a sudden?” I felt very strange. She said, go see your doctor and make sure you’re not sick or something” and I agreed to make an appointment first thing in the morning.

Well, it turned out that my blood sugar was excessively high like over 500. My doctor told me that he wanted me in the hospital for a few days until he could get control of my blood sugar. He said if I don’t get control of it myself then I would be diabetic for the rest of my life. He also said as a question, you don’t want to stop having sex do you? I asked, would high blood sugar have something to do with that? He said yes. You’re on your way to being a diabetic. You can lose your sex drive and become impotent.

He said, “right now, you are borderline. How is your sex drive?” I told him it is strong but I’m not trying to have sex now days. When I find wife material then I’ll consider having sex…

Well, needless to say, I was willing to do whatever I needed to do to get control of my blood sugar. After a week in the hospital and some counseling I was determined to change my diet. I started detoxing (cleaning my blood) I was familiar with fasting so I would fast for, as long until my blood readings were normal. It wasn’t easy but I was determined to live and enjoy life. I began reading up on and paying more and more attention to foods, how food was processed and the various kinds of ingredients and chemicals that were put in food. I found some astonishing results.


Eat Healthy And Exercise To Be Stress Free


I knew what I needed to start doing. I needed to design an exercise and eating regimen that I was determined to stick with. I got in contact with a friend that I knew was into healthy eating in fact, she just happened to be a vegan vegetarian. She wasn’t into exercise but she knew about dieting and drinking plenty of water. She became my thirty-day coach. She told me that after thirty days I should be able to pick it up on my own. She was very strict with me. She pulled no punches. She acted like a coach. The friendship was pushed aside and out of the way. I felt very confident because of that. At times, my blood sugar would be higher than should have been but I didn’t panic.

I worked at it diligently until it was under my sheer control. Drinking the proper amount of water was the more important than anything else to drink. I ate raw vegetables, fruit, nuts and very little steamed or sautéed foods. My exercise regimen is another hub called, Nine-Point Morning Exercise 15-30 Minutes. It has worked very well for me. I look fifteen years younger than I really am. I walk on the treadmill as often as I can. Sometimes if I miss a work out I will jump down at some point during the day and do a quick thirty push ups.

Did you know that exercise builds mind over matter? I can look at and smell buttered pancakes and keep on walking.

My Spirituality Was Full Of Faith


I have faith in God with everything that I do. Even when life around me looks grim, I maintain the faith that God is with me and that He is going to get me through difficult times because I am being obedient to His commandments, laws and rules of righteousness. If I have conformed to what God commands of me then why shouldn’t I reap the things that He has promised me? I must trust in God’s plan for me.

I don’t recommend anything here. I am just sharing my story of how I weaned away high blood sugar. It’s a very organized and disciplined way to live. I feel that others can do it. It requires sacrifice but in the long run it pays off and it was worth it.



Incorporate the Taking of Herbs

It is best to continue taking medications while continuing to eat healthier. The healthier you eat the lesser the medication you need to take. Learn to eat plenty of veggies, small portions of fruit, nuts, beans and incorporate taking various herbs. Herbs can be used as spices or taken in portions. It is important to learn about herbs and their different forms of consumption. Also, if the natural foods cause you to start losing too much weight then don't hesitate to go back to eating meat, dairy and foods to put weight back on while maintaining the use of herbs. Whatever is done the exercising must always continue.

Be Sure To Read Part 2

With faith, dedication/devotion and determination it is possible to revert having high blood sugar with natural remedies that is considered by the medical society as a disease called diabetes. A person with these symptoms should take life most seriously. People are plagued with this disease because they are consuming anti organic foods. Anti organic and processed foods work against what the organs are naturally created to do... and that is to function properly. It is best to stay home or go home and prepare your own meals so that it is known exactly what is in the food that is consumed on a daily basis.

      Thank you MsDora for commenting here. Feel free to get started in taking charge of your life and doing the things that it will benefit most from and that is healthy eating. Healthy eating is something we should have been doing all along. People are ill, diseased and dying without knowing why. Often times, it is because of what we put in our bodies. It is time for us to realize that if we eat appropriately we can prolong our bodies if we value life to the greatest extent that God had intended for us.

      Well done on this article. Diabetes runs in my family and just like you, I would eat everything I wanted when I was young. Now I have become very health conscious and began to watch what I eat trying to eat more vegetables and fruits. I also started working out more too. At first I was miserable but then I got used to it. Life style change is hard, but it is very important... voted up and shared.

      Thank you DDE, As we get older we should consider changing our diet, as athletes slow down or retire from sports, they should consider the change according to the metabolism too.

      Thank you much Faith and BillyB for stopping in. I had to wait until I felt the struggle was over before starting to write this. Just think, I can now go to gatherings and over look the foods and pastries that I used to love... and now eat like a cool vegetarian with drinking water and sometimes, a glass of wine. This lifestyle does take a while to get used to and then master. I feel strongly that I could have help preserve my mom's life if I had known back then what I know today :-)
