Halloween made healthier with Pumpkins

Halloween is one of our favourite holidays we love the scary movies and Halloween decorations.

Halloween is also the a big sugar high season with bags and nags of sweets on offer in every supermarket. And while it’s pretty hard to avoid sweet treats, having altogether, it is possible to make better choices and not overdo it. Having Healthy snacks available and healthy options helps the kids not overdo it on the sugary treats and with Pumpkins widely available this time of year we should make the most of them.

Health benefits and nutritional breakdown

Many people think of pumpkins as little more than a Halloween decoration and if you make it a family event and crave the pumpkins you most likely dump the insides of the pumpkin on the bin.But a Pumpkin is a highly nutrient-dense food. It is rich in vitamins and minerals but low in calories. Pumpkin seeds, leaves, and juices all pack a powerful nutritional punch.

Health Benefits

  • Support Prostate Health
  • Protect againist Diabetes
  • Lowers Cholesterol by 13%
  • 100g seeds provide 30g Protein
  • High in zinc
  • Regulating blood pressure
  • Help supplement the fiber shortage
  • Pumpkin can protect immunity.

Nutritional breakdown

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database one cup of cooked, boiled, or drained pumpkin without salt contains:

  • 1.76 g of protein
  • 2.7 g of fiber
  • 49 calories
  • 0.17 g of fat
  • 0 g of cholesterol
  • 12.01 g of carbohydrate

This amount of pumpkin also provides:

  • more than 200 percent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin A
  • nineteen percent of the RDA of vitamin C
  • ten percent or more of the RDA of vitamin E, riboflavin, potassium, copper, and manganese
  • at least 5 percent of thiamin, B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus

Preparing fresh pumpkin at home will deliver the most benefits for your health.Steer clear of canned pumpkin pie mix. This is usually placed next to the canned pumpkin in grocery stores, and is sold in a similar can. It contains added sugars and syrups.

Adding Pumpkin into your diet

There are many ways pumpkin can be incorporated into desserts, soups, salads, preserves, and even as a substitute for butter. We love roasting seeds and roasting pumpkin seeds is very easy.

Roasted Pumpkin seeds

Wash the seeds. This is easiest just after you’ve removed the seeds from the pumpkin, before the pulp has dried. Put the pulp and seeds into a large bowl of cold water.

Boil seeds in salted water. Simmering them first, in salty water for about 10 minutes, solves this problem helps them roast evenly. Dry the seeds Drain the seeds in a sieve and dry with towels. Place them on a baking sheet

Drizzle the seeds with about 1 teaspoon of oil. If you prefer, omit the oil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with Achill sea salt and bake at 325 degrees F. Roast until toasted, about 25 minutes. Stored in an air-tight container, your pumpkin seeds will keep for 1-2 months in the refrigerator, or at room temperature for about a week.

Health Show Episode #13– Steps to Take to Help Your Thyroid

Health Show Episode #13– Steps to Take to help your Thyroid

Thyroid disorders are on the rise, and is a serious problem that’s causing so many health complications. Because millions of people around the world are suffering, we decided to highlight this topic and was the theme of this month’s Health Show. But since we would look at the problem as a symptom, and not necessarily the source of the problem, we wanted to showcase our approach to finding the underlying cause(s) using our whole person approach.

A bit of background about the Thyroid

The Thyroid gland is one organ found in the “Endocrine System”. This system of glands works together to regulate body temperature, metabolism, sleep, reproduction, mood, growth and development. The other glands are the pituitary, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries/testicles.

In this Health Show you will learn that it is totally possible for you to take good care of your thyroid health. It is a HUGE topic and while we covered a lot in episode #13 of the Health Show, it can’t compete with getting to the root of your own issues by visiting a practitioner.

Types of Thyroid Conditions

Your thyroid can either be functioning normally, or if not it can either by Hypo-(low), or Hyper-thyroid (high), and when they get chronic enough, you can be diagnosed with either Hashimotos (a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid) or Graves Disease (also a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid). The usual treatment is either surgery or medication to treat the symptoms and to normalise the blood readings of the thyroid hormones. Both men and women can have an underactive thyroid. However, it’s more common in women.

However, in the Systematic Kinesiology when organs are in trouble we look at that as being a useful signal. BUT we also have to be mindful that often – where it IS it ISNT, in that we want to understand WHY the thyroid isn’t functioning properly, and the blame is often not the thyroid at all. Testing through Systematic Kinesiology we can identify imbalances before they become a chronic problem.

Common Symptoms

Fatigue
Weight gain
Depression
Slow wound healing
Itchy dry skin
Hair falling out
Loss of outer eyebrows
Very sensitive to cold weather
Constipation
Crying easily
As well as the regulation of the menstrual cycle

In this Health Show Siobhan Guthrie demonstrates how we can test for low thyroid, the factors to take into consideration, and talks about the Steps to Help Restore Function

Factors to consider when approaching health from a Whole Person and lifestyle perspective:

M – Mental realm: emotional stresses
C – Chemical realm: toxins in the environment, food sensitivities
P – Physical realm: whiplash and other structural problems
E – Energy realm: energetic blocks.

 

Here are some of the vitamins/minerals and foods that can help you keep your thyroid health in good condition

B Vitamins – Apart from helping you with your mood health, energy levels, and metabolism, B vitamins can also help you improve your thyroid health. Some of the most common plant-based sources of B vitamins are avocados, broccoli, sweet potatoes, nuts, seeds, coconut, beans, legumes, and whole grains.

Vitamin D – particularly useful for people who have auto-immune problems as lots of studies link auto immune problems to Vit D deficiency. It also plays an essential part in your mood, bone, blood sugar/diabetes, heart, and muscle pain. Since Vitamin D is primarily obtained from the sun, the best way to get it is to be exposed to sunlight for about 15 minutes every day it is not always that easy in Ireland so consider taking a supplement.

Selenium – Apart from being vital to your skin and hair, selenium is also good for your thyroid health. The best source of plant-based selenium is the Brazil nut.

Glutamine – particularly useful if you suspect digestive or even leaky gut issues.

If you have blood sugar issues, then Chromium and Magnesium and Zinc may be indicated. Zinc if low can impact on the production of T3, a thyroid hormone.

Iodine – You’ve likely heard that iodine is good for the thyroid. However, since it’s a micronutrient you don’t need very much, and since it is possible to get from our diet, may not be a factor in your thyroid issues. Eating seafood is a good dietary source of iodine.  Other natural thyroid support.

Living with Fibromyalgia: Kinesiology can Help

 

Living with Fibromyalgia -Kinesiology can help

Also called fibromyalgia syndrome, is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.

It comes from three Latin words:

  • ‘fibro’ meaning fibrous tissues, such as tendons (tissue that connects muscles to bones) and ligaments (tissue that connects bones to bones)
  • ‘my’ meaning muscles
  • ‘algia’ meaning pain

Earlier this month, Lady Gaga announced the cancellation of the upcoming leg of her world tour due to her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia syndrome alot of people had never heard of it until them and wonder exactly what was Fibromyalgia.

How common is it?

The number of people who suffer from fibromyalgia in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population. In most cases, it occurs between 30 and 60 years of age, but it can develop in people of any age, including children and the elderly.

The number of people who suffer from it in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population.

It can be a difficult condition to diagnose because there is no specific test and the symptoms can be similar to those of other conditions.

Many people with the syndrome may have:

Pain and tender points
Fatigue
Sleep problems
Concentration and memory problems, known as “fibro fog”
Anxiety or depression
Morning stiffness
Numbness, and tingling in hands, arms, feet, and legs
Headaches
Irritable bowel syndrome
Problems with peeing
Painful menstrual cramps
Pain and Tender Points

Almost all people with fibromyalgia ache all over. It can feel similar to osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis, but it’s over your entire body. This is usually what makes you go see your doctor.
https://www.webmd.com/fibromyalgia/guide/fibromyalgia-symptoms#1

It is a chronic condition which can be treated multi dimensionally. There is a clear physical component and chemical component that Kinesiology can address, the first line of defense is to decrease pain then to address the cause, and Applied Kinesiology can pinpoint exactly what nutrients and herbs will be effective for you. Lastly fibromyalgia is almost an emotional component. Kinesiology can identify the stress and where it is coming from in your life.

Hear Roberta’s Story

Roberta joined our course last year and just recently spoke publicly about her struggles with Fibromyalgia and how Kinesiology has helped her come off her medication. Hear her powerful story here.

You can make an appointment with Roberta or connect through her facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/rbholistictherapies/

Wellness is vital in fibromyalgia, and Kinesiology can give you tools to be willing to take care of your mind and body with education. Because when you are willing – anything is possible!

Get your kids off milk now !



The milk industry has been working hard for decades to convince us that it’s absolutely essential for everyone to drink milk.
Milk supporters – and the milk industry – tend to focus their marketing on bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis to sell their cupfuls. And while intuition may tell you that the consumption of calcium must, in turn, do a body good, the medical literature isn’t so sure

Conventional cows milk is a food that can cause leaky gut. The component of dairy that will harm your gut is the protein A1 casein. Also, the pasteurization process will destroy vital enzymes, making sugars like lactose very difficult to digest.

The mechanism behind dairy causing the damage it does lies in several areas:

1. It stops the formation of glucosamine in the gut lining, thereby creating a leaky gut. (Glucosamine is known to help repair the mucosal-lining defensive barrier in our small intestine.)
2. It impairs immune system development in the gut and the maturation of important immune cells known as T helper cells – this can lead to autoimmune disease, asthma, allergies.
3. The milk from other mammals is too high in protein and phosphorus and the protein damages the gut lining.
4. Dairy products are highly chemically laden, the highest per gram of all food, and are thereby toxic to the gut lining.
5. Dairy creates a mucous “slime” in the lining of the gut that prevents the absorption of some nutrients as well as causing gut inflammation. – (https://glutendoctors.blogspot.ie)

Hear from Brian who joined us for a recent workshop he believes ” we should not be drinking milk”

Brian’s take on milk is rather straightforward. Milk does not appear to the magic food whose consumption leads to strong bones or everlasting life. It is also not the dietary problem that’s poisoning the nation. And although a source of calcium there are many alternative sources of calcium and that, if bone strength and general health is your concern.

 

Hear more from Brian Miller – https://betterbodymanagement.co.uk/about/

 

If you feel your health is suffering from eating dairy prodcuts a visit to a Kinesiologist can determine if you are lactose intolerant.  Using muscle-testing, we can find out whether a particular food is stressful for a person by placing the item on their body and pressing on a muscle We can also test to see if it is an allergy or an intolerance and see how it might be affecting the person emotionally as well as physically. (In some cases, a particular food can switch a person into sabotaging themselves – in other words, when they eat it, they tend to make unhealthy choices in life. A good example would be dairy.)

Is a low-fat diet causing you to gain weight ?

Good versus Bad – Why we all need it in our diet

We know that diet plays a big role in the health of the body, but an essential nutrient that has been demonized for the past 50 years or so is fat. Low-fat foods have been recommended to be healthy, yet long term chronic health issues are on the rise which are much nastier than the acute health issues from the past.
By eliminating it from the diet and replacing it with sugar and artificial sweeteners has not made us healthier; yet society in general relies on sugar and carbohydrates for energy and continue to struggle without essential nutrients.

It is needed to build cell membranes, the vital exterior of each cell, and the sheaths surrounding nerves. It is essential for blood clotting, muscle movement, and inflammation. For long-term health, some fats are better than others. Good fats include monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Bad ones include industrial-made trans fats. Saturated ones fall somewhere in the middle.

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats  are known as the “good fats” because they are good for your heart, your cholesterol, and your overall health. These can help to:

  • Lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Lower bad LDL cholesterol levels, while increasing good HDL.
  • Prevent abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Lower triglycerides associated with heart disease and fight inflammation.
  • Lower blood pressure.
  • Prevent atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries).

Adding more of these healthy fats to your diet may also help to make you feel more satisfied after a meal, reducing hunger and thus promoting weight loss.

  • Avocados
  • Olives
  • Nuts (almonds, peanuts, macadamia, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews)
  • Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds
  • Fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines)

Bad fats

The worst type of dietary fat is the kind known as trans fat. It is a byproduct of a process called hydrogenation that is used to turn healthy oils into solids and to prevent them from becoming rancid. When vegetable oil is heated in the presence of hydrogen and a heavy-metal catalyst such as palladium, hydrogen atoms are added to the carbon chain. This turns oils into solids. It also makes healthy vegetable oils more like not-so-healthy saturated fats. On food label ingredient lists, this manufactured substance is typically listed as “partially hydrogenated oil.” (www.health.harvard.edu)

Examples of bad ones – (Trans fat )

  • Cookies, cakes, pizza dough, chips
  • Stick margarine, vegetable shortening
  • Fried foods – fried chicken, chicken nuggets, breaded fish
  • Anything containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, even if it claims to be “trans fat-free”

Saturated fat. While not as harmful as trans fat, saturated fat can raise bad LDL cholesterol and too much can negatively impact heart health, so it’s best consumed in moderation. Experts recommend limiting it to 10% of your daily calories.

Saturated fat – primary sources include:

  • Red meat (beef, lamb, pork)
  • Whole dairy products (milk, cream, cheese)
  • Butter, Ice cream
  • Lard
  • Tropical oils such as coconut and palm oil

If you eat carbohydrates, you body floods your bloodstream with insulin. So eating more carbohydrates means less time in fat burning mode. Which means more fat accumulation in the fat cells. Then this means feeling hungrier and weight gain. Eating more fat and fewer carbohydrates means fat will burn quicker, you are less hungry, and more likely to lose weight.

Your diet determines how much insulin your body will produce over time. From the documentary “Fat Head.”

We think by simply eating healthy carbs, (in small amounts) lean protein, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed foods that contain trans and saturated fats.

Remember not all ones are bad, and there are healthy ones that are essential to a balanced diet. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends healthy Americans, over age 2, eat between 25 and 35 percent of your total daily calories as fats from healthy sources like nuts, fish and oils.

Health Show Episode #12 – Helping anxious children



Helping Anxious children and teenagers at School

If you are a parent, aunt, uncle, teacher or carer of kids, this month’s Health Show is a must watch.

Going back to school can be stressful at the best of times. But with anxiety, and learning difficulties on the rise (up to a third of students), it can be a very tough time for kids and for parents doing their best to get them out the door.  One of our KinesiologyZone Diploma graduates, Paula Phillips, helped four kids who wanted to improve their exam results, as part of her research study that she undertook during her Systematic Kinesiology training.  Anxious kidsAs exam results are measurable, she was able to see how Kinesiology’s holistic interventions made a difference.  Listen to Paula tell you about the results these kids and the one adult who also benefitted!

Children are faced with lots of stresses in life today and often children are unable to express their true emotions and feelings. Communicating how they are feeling is sometimes also difficult. They do however have the ability to accept change and move with this fairly easily. It is this reason that Systematic Kinesiology has such wonderful and powerful effects on children.

Watch and learn how children have gone from being unable to complete maths homework or reading to being happy children, much more confident and even motivated students.  And who doesn’t want that!

Paula really believes ‘‘ Transform your beliefs = Transform your life”

You can learn the techniques and approaches to help kids that Paula used in her research can be learned on our Balanced Health programme.  They are simple and powerful to use on yourself and to help kids struggling with reading, writing, and comprehension.

If you want to make an appointment with Paula you can email her on pp99phillips@yahoo.co.uk

Make Room For Your Gift

Our Class of 2017 graduated last weekend and wow, it was a joy to see this group SHINE!

KinesiologyZone Diploma Class of 2017

Right from the start this group’s positive attitude, excitement about Systematic Kinesiology, and their work ethic stood out. They really got behind what we want to achieve with healthcare in Ireland and they’ve been a joy to teach. Many are seeing clients on a part time basis now and others have jumped with both feet in and have full time clinics, acheived during the two years of training.

They took on the challenges, stepped out of their comfort zones, and have discovered their capacity to create a life that overcomes the barriers that life puts up.  All have great skills in helping their clients with stress, gut problems, back issues and many other lifestyle related health problems.

And THIS week, we just completed our powerful communications and transformational workshop with our Class of 2018!

Systematic Kinesiology offers students a wonderful opportunity to look after their own health which inspires them with a deep passion to help others.  This week this wonderful group of student practitioners discovered the power of releasing past issues, became aware of habits and patterns holding them back, got clear on their future, and had great fun discovering new ways to help others.

We are delighted our KinesiologyZone community of practitioners and students is growing because the subject of health is SO important, and too many people are struggling. These graduates and trainees are doing amazing work, helping their families, themselves and their clients overcome challenges.  

Health is not just about fixing one thing.  But when you can identify the root causes of a problem, (and since everyone is different the root cause will be different), you will be able to help people because of the whole person approach we use. 

Emotional stresses, self talk, language and communication.
Nutritional deficiencies, toxins, food sensitivities, and diet.
Physical stresses, aches and pain, muscle balancing, and structural alignment.
Energy, meridians, electrical balancing and “switching”.

There are so many options when it comes to treating ourselves and our clients.

It can be hard to make time for what we love to do, with being “too busy”, have other responsibilities, or other barriers and obstacles that make us believe that now is not a good time.

I love this video from Steve Harvey, about identifying the gift you have inside of you.

The Benefits of Rebounding for 5 minutes




What is rebounding ?….

Research has led some scientists to conclude that jumping on a mini-trampoline is possibly the most effective exercise yet devised by man, especially because of the effect rebounding has on the lymph in the body. It is safe, easy to use, and effective.

The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as ageing. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.

In Systematic Kinesiology we use a system of reflexes that stimulate the flow of lymph to the related muscle and organ. There is twice as much lymph as blood in the body. It is a non-cellular fluid. It permeates the tissue where blood cells that are imprisoned in capillaries cannot go since there are too large. The lymph feeds and cleans the bodies tissues.

Lymph vessels can become clogged with protein deposits or the flow can stagnate or even stop for reasons such as fatigue, stress, infection, emotional shock, lack of physical activity or dehydration. Toxins accumulate, cells are unable to function properly resulting in various metabolic and infectious problems.

All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased “G force” during rebounding. Vertical motion workouts such as rebounding are much different and much more beneficial and efficient than horizontal motion workouts, such as jogging or running.

When you bounce on a rebounder (mini-trampoline), several actions happen:

  • An acceleration action as you bounce upward
  • A split-second weightless pause at the top
  • A deceleration at an increased G-force

Jumping on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, so it’s a big deal!  These immune cells are responsible for eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active.

Rebounding Safely

Everyone should start with the gentle bounce; let your feet remain with the mat while the body moves up and down. The bounce is sufficient to obtain all the benefits of rebounding while gently strengthening the entire body. It is recommended that you rebound with bare feet so you do not slip. Do not wear tight or constricting clothes. The more jiggling, the more your lymph system is flushing out those toxins!

Start with 5 minutes of rebounding and increase their time as their fitness level improves. Seniors can start with 2 minutes several times per day, with at least 30 minutes between rebounding sessions. Increase your rebounding time gradually.

Inactive seniors find that gently jumping on a mini-trampoline gives them renewed vigor and zest for life. HyperactiReboundingve children are reported to calm down after a few days of rebounding.  Everyone  can do this and people can use the rebound mini-trampoline whenever they have a few minutes during the day.

Just some of the Benefits

  • Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function
  • Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass
  • Helps improve digestion
  • Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
  • Rebounding in a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body.
  • Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals.
  • Rebounding is fun!

Have you ever looked out the kitchen window and see the kids bouncing on the trampoline and think that looks fun… well it is and it is so good for you. So next time take a few minutes and jump on the trampoline and feel the benefits in your body.

Hear from Des about rebounding in more detail.

The Health Show Episode #11 – Sugar Insulin and Diabetes

The Health Show Episode #11 – Sugar Insulin and Diabetes

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes – How understanding blood sugar, insulin, insulin resistance, macro nutrients, supplements, essential fats and reading labels will help you prevent diabetes!  There’s a LOT in this month’s Health Show!

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes KinesiologyZone Health Show Episode 11 Sugar

For every expert recommending some new health fix, there’s someone else telling you to try the opposite. But something we are all on the same page about is sugar – specifically, added sugar, that is doing us more harm than good.  But overall our love of carbohydrates is making us fatter, more tired, and less happy!

While we all know we should consume sugar “in moderation,” it’s easier said than done, especially when it is found in foods as added, and often hidden, ingredients.  The WHO (World Health organisation) recently published guidelines on sugar intake for adults and children saying that no more than 10% of a person’s energy intake (calories) should come from free sugars. In Ireland, the National Adult Nutritional Survey in 2011 showed that on average our diets contained 14.6% energy from free sugars.

Watch Siobhan Guthrie’s overview and introduction to this big topic – about our nutritional needs, proteins, essential fats, carbohydrates and what to do to keep our insulin levels low, which will prevent many long term health conditions

[jwplayer player=”4″ mediaid=”6731″]

 

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes KinesiologyZone Health Show Episode 11

In today’s Health Show we offer practical tips on helping get the focus away from carbohydrates (such as sugar) and onto proteins and essential fats into the diet, so that you feel satiated, have more energy and long term good health.

Symptoms of blood sugar imbalance:

  • Tiredness, ratty, stressed, HUNGRY all the time,
  • Prone to infection (especially your teeth and gum disease)
  • significant health problems because it’s associated with obesity, heart attacks, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cancer and other serious conditions.

INSULIN – a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas in response to the foods you eat.

Health Tips:

– Add oily fish into your diet
– Use Avocados – great for adding essential fats into your salad
– Hummus – This middle eastern snack is high in protein!
– Beans -Most beans have about 7-10 grams of protein per half cup
– UDOs Oil has the perfect blend of Omega 3/6/9.

Become sugar smart

Understanding food labels is a great tool in becoming sugar smart. Added sugars can come under many different names and are listed to disguise how much sugar is in the “food product”:

• Corn syrup, Golden syrup, Maple syrup.
• Honey, Malt syrup, molasses

• Glucose (twice as sweet as fructose)
• Fructose
• Sucrose
• Maltose
• Dextrose
• Galactose
• Lactose
• High fructose corn syrup
• Invert sugar
• Hydrolysed starch

And the list goes on!  Dextrin, Maltodextrin, Barley malt, Beet sugar, Date sugar, Diatase, Fruit juice, Fruit juice concentrate, Dehydrated fruit juice, Fruit juice crystals, and Agave.

Supplements to help reverse Insulin Resistance and help with sweet cravings

If you are interested in getting some chromium, zinc, magnesium or other supplements to help balance your blood sugar you will find the ones Siobhan recommended by visiting this site. https://www.pharmanord.com/ or from your local Systematic Kinesiologist.

 


Our next Health Show- episode #12 will take place on the 20th September and with kids heading back to school we will be discussing ”Children and young adolescents achieve their potential academically in today’s world”

”His Blood Sugar levels were dramatically reduced”

”After three treatments Francis blood sugar levels are down to 45”

 

Living with Diabetes is a huge challenge in today’s society. Diabetes is the fastest growing chronic condition in Ireland, increasing at a faster rate than other chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. The total number of people
living with diabetes in Ireland is estimated to be 225,840.

By 2020, it’s predicted, the figure will have climbed to 233,000 people with the condition – and by 2030, it’s predicted, it will be at 278,850.

Emotional and behavioural factors can contribute towards your sugar level, outside of the poor choices people make like poor eating habits, no exercise, excess sugar in the diet and alcohol consumption.

Often not dealing with stress, anger or anxiety can be the underlying problem of diabetes diagnosis for some people.

Stress affects people with diabetes, including type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes  and prediabetes . And managing stress isn’t as easy as just telling yourself to relax and get through your to-do list.  When you have diabetes, stress can affect your blood glucose level, so managing stress when you have diabetes is just another way to work on managing your blood glucose level.

Type 1 Diabetes is rarely reversed but with the right dietary changes major improvements in blood sugar levels can be seen and a person can often reduce their dependence on insulin and medications.

Hear how Finola helped Francis Brenna with health issues including diabetes, he recently chatted to Ryan Turbidy about his treatments with Finola and how Kinesiology treatments have improved his health.

Listen in around the 14 min mark.

Steps Finola would recommend –

* Take a look at your diet. Reducing sugar intake is a must.
* Reduce or remove bread.
* A visit to a Kinesiologist will allow them to look at the way sugar is stored in the body and not allowing it to turn to energy. Sometimes toxins are affecting this pathway which can be treated with herbs. Minerals and vitamins can be introduced to improve the energy production cycle.

People can reduce their risk of developing or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by eating healthy, becoming more active and losing excess weight. To learn more join us this Wednesday on our Health Show where we will talk about defeating diabetes and controlling your blood sugar using natural medicine.
