Here is a short list of ways to deal with cravings.
Hypoglycemia is a form of diabetes where the blood glucose levels go much lower than normal. There are many causes for hypoglycemia, but the most common is type 2 diabetes.
There are many different ways you can handle hypoglycemia. You can go with the conventional methods that your doctor would probably perscribe- taking glucose tablets and getting glucagon injections in server cases, or you can go with holistic treatment.
The most common symptoms are:
The adrenal glads, pancreas, and liver are very important in treating hypoglycemia. you want to take in the proper vitamins and minerals to support these as well. Take licorice root, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. Take magnesium and selenium for the pancreas and take vitamin B-complex and DHA for the liver.
How we treat hypoglycemia holistically is to eat 4-5 small meals a day and 1 serving of caffine a day- such as one cup of coffee or tea. I recommend that you stay away from processed foods. Eliminate instant foods from your diet like instant rice and instant potatoes. Do your best to keep alcohol to a minimum as well, the occasional drink is just fine. Don't skip meals! Even if you are trying to lose weight- do not skip a meal. This is a very important part of caring for yourself. Also try to not eat late at night, set a time for yourself to end eating for the night. A common time is between 6 and 8pm. Include protein in your lunch and dinner. Add a glass of milk or chicken to your lunch or dinner. Exercise is also very important when controlling hypoglycemia, it is important for many other reasons, but especially when dealing with hypoglycemia.
Here are some supplements that may help with learning to live with hypoglycemia:
Also keep certain foods around that will help you if your blood sugar starts to get low such as raw nuts, fruit, vegetables, and fresh juices.
There is a lot of good products that are good for you to use for your skin. There are some good over the counter products that can be used- but there are also many things you can use that are in your own home. I will use this article to focus on your face. Here are a few things that are important regardless of products:
-Changer your pillow case and sheets at least once a week.
-Rinse your face off after doing your hair and using hairspray.
-Wash your face twice a day.
- Take your makeup off every night!
Okay here are the products you can tr
Acne is common for teens and adults. This can be because of hormonal changes and also- even thought there isn't any "solid" evidence, what you eat does affect your skin. For black heads and white heads- I find that one of the best things you can use is baking soda! It is inexpensive and usually in most households. Baking soda is known for the cleaning properties. It is great to help dry up the bacteria on your face- it also is great for healing your face.
Try this: Twice a week, take 1 Tbsp of baking soda and mix it with about 1 Tbsp of water or less of water- just enough to make a past. Spread the paste across your face with a cotton ball- use a qtip to get into the tough places like around your nose and your chin. Let it dry on your face, it might burn a bit. If it burns too much go ahead and wash it off with a wash cloth.
**If you have acne all over your body, take a hot bath and add 1 cup of Epsom salts and 1/2 cup of sugar and let yourself soak for about 20 minutes.
Acne scars are common also any other scars on your face. The precious face is not something you want to have scars. Something that is common to use maybe once every week or once every two weeks in a cinnamon mask.
Try this: take 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of almond oil, and 1 tsp water. Mix this together and spread it all over your face, avoiding your eyes. Leave it on as long as you can stand it- this may burn. Then rinse it off with cool water and pat dry.
Dry skin is one of the most common things that people face- especially when the weather changes or when you are sick. Coconut oil is one thing that is good to wash your face with. You can mix some Epsom salts and coconut oil and wash your face really well. It will feel a bit oily- and is possible that you will get a few zits, but keep with it.
**If your whole body is dry- try taking a bath with 1/8 of a cup of olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil.
To maintain a healthy skin balance washing your face with goat's milk soap. It will keep your skin moisturized and also allow your skin to get a lot of nutrients. To maintain healthy looking skin, take a 45 minute bath each week complete with 1 Cup of Epsom Salts, 1/2 Cup Sugar, 1 Tbsp Ground Ginger, and 1/4 Cup of Almond, Coconut, Olive, or Baby Oil.

Starting October 14th I started doing burpees everyday and the 4 minute circuit workout. I went from about 10 burpees a day to 60 a day. They are not easy- they break you down mentally and physically! This is my toning and weight loss since October 14th, 2012. The day I started I weighed myself in at 169.6. Today at the doctor's I was weighed and was at 157! I don't see a huge difference, my clothes don't fit too differently. I am building muscle though! And.... yes! Even health coaches gain some weight from time to time!
This goes to show- anyone can do it! I have back and neck injuries- I am doing my very best to get this butt into shape. Losing some pounds or rather- losing some fat would be good! Toning up that muscle and getting into great shape- Anyways- I wanna be a trophy wife :)
Hello everyone! I thought I would share with everyone this 7 day detoxing
diet! I have had a few emails via facebook and my other website about this diet
and my opinion as to whether it works or if it is even worth it. So as a health
coach my job is to understand diet theories and try them if necessary to give
everyone an educated answer!
Fruits all day. All you eat is fruit, and try to eat melons as well. 10 cups
--Sounds easy huh? Fruit is awesome for your body. It provides tons of
vitamins and minerals. Day one is to get your body ready for the week ahead.
I tried this. I had peaches this morning for breakfast. I also had a water
bottle with tons of sliced lemons in it. The water was great. As the day went on
I really wanted to eat a hamburger... and I don't know really why that was
because I don't usually crave hamburgers. For lunch I had a huge... and I mean
HUGE apple. The apple filled me up and I wasn't really hungry for the rest of
the day. I got home from the craft show and my sister was baking lemon chicken-
that was tough. I had a half cup of strawberries to help satisfy the craving. It
is difficult when someone is cooking something you really like but I am pressing
through. Cantaloupe, watermelon, and grapes are in my near future!
