BLOOD SUGAR MANAGEMENT
Blood sugar management is of concern to millions of people in the North America. Both Diabetes and Hypoglycemia have reached epidemic portions.
Hypoglycemia , which occurs when the pancreas is over producing the amount of insulin that it needs to . It can be caused by too much simple carbohydrates (sugars) in the diet, or by stress , among other things. Very often, if left unchecked, the pancreas becomes exhausted, and stops producing. Then Diabetes occurs.
Diabetes is the condition that the pancreas is not producing enough insulin to breaks down the carbohydrates that are being consumed. There are two types--------Juvenile diabetes in which is when the pancreas never developed properly or has been damaged. This person is always insulin dependant. Late onset diabetics (sometimes called Type II) is usually caused by poor diet, stress, or severe trauma.
REFLEXOLOGY relieves stress, improves circulation, and helps normalizes body functions……….so it is the perfect prescription for Diabetics and Hypoglycemics.
A client should plan on 2 to 3 short treatments a week in the
beginning . The practitioner would use a rather 'light touch' and work on both feet . The pancreas and adrenal gland reflex ending would be the main emphasis, but the whole endocrine system should be worked on. As time goes on, treatments can be long and farther apart. They should notice deep relaxation and a new sense of well being.
We have seen wonderful results with both conditions. If the person is a Diabetic and is on medication or insulin, it is very important that they check their blood sugar very regularly, because there may be a drastic raise or drop in the level until the body begins to regulate.
There can be many other health problems related to diabetes over the years. Reflexology can help ward off many of these detrimental effects, like heart disease, eye problems, and neuropathy.
An added benefit to diabetics having reflexology treatments, is that they are done on the feet. It can be such an easy and delightful way to maintain good circulation and flexibility in this susceptible area of the body.
It is note worthy that children benefit equally as well with Reflexology . Along with Professional treatments, a little foot treatment once or twice a day from Mom can do wonders. Mom's say that they have noticed a calming effect throughout the day, as well as a decrease cravings for sweets and junk food. I'd recommend that this be done for all children. Maybe we can help prevent many of these 'sugar 'diseases from developing in the first place.
