Insulin Resistance

Insulin balance in our bodies is a most remarkable process, we eat carbohydrates which turns to sugar in the blood stream.  Our pancreas releases insulin so blood sugar can be transferred into every cell giving you energy.  Insulin resistance is when the cell becomes resistant to insulin and doesn’t allow the sugar to be transported properly.  As a result you can experience:

  • Fatigue
  • Sugar Cravings
  • Inability to Lose Weight
  • Constant Hunger
  • Fatigue after Meals
  • Migrating Pains and Aches

Contributing factors in insulin resistance are:

  • High Stress
  • Poor Food Choices
  • Lack of Exercise
  • Not Knowing The Right Supplements

Today with a fast food place on every corner and everyday mounting stress it is easy to see that over 35% of the population experiences insulin resistance to some degree.  Insulin resistance has become a contributing factor to poly cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, hormonal imbalances, cardiovascular disease, obesity and certain types of cancer.

  • Can you imagine waking up with energy and feeling rested?
  • No hunger or cravings between meals.
  • Having the ability to control your weight.

Insulin resistance is curable with diet, exercise, supplements and stress management, we begin by identifying your blood glucose level with a A1c blood test, that will give you a direct picture of what your blood sugar is within a 3 month window.
