The human body is constantly working to find a point of balance. This balance is called homeostasis and it is the natural resting place in the bodies physiological state. It takes a great deal of energy for the body to manage this balance. Consciously maintaining healthy blood sugar levels by choosing the right foods can support the body in it’s endless pursuit to achieve balance.
There are many things we can do to help our bodies find and maintain this balance. The more we can do to help our body–the more energy it will have for healing and repair–because it won’t have to work as hard. Over time, managing blood sugar levels is taxing on the endocrine system and especially the pancreas. The pancreas is the most adversely effected by the blood sugar “roller coaster,” leading to a cascade of metabolic disturbances, such as metabolic syndrome and eventually diabetes.
Sweet foods contain sugars which disturb digestion and absorption of nutrients because they feed the unhealthy bacteria, fungus, yeast, parasites and even cancer cells, according to cutting edge research. Minimizing carbohydrates and sugars in the diet, not only helps to stabilize the blood sugar, but it helps to create a more alkalized environment in the body, which is essential for the proper absorption of nutrients.
