How to Lower Blood Sugar Naturally

Video transcription

So you feel you may need to lower your blood sugar, whether it's from diabetes or just for natural health reasons. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Human Performance and Physical Medicine Specialist. Blood sugar and the way that it's handled in the body is kind of a complex mechanism, but you can affect it very very easily with just some simple health practices. One of the best things that you can do, number one is to eat more often. If you're getting food into your system in smaller amounts, about every three hours, almost no matter what it is that you're eating, your body is going to not only naturally regulate appetite, but it's naturally regulate blood sugar levels. Because instead of, instead of having huge amounts that the body has to deal with each time you eat a huge meal. It has these smaller amounts which it can deal with much more naturally as far as insulin production goes. Now when you start choosing the quality of your food, if you make sure that with each meal you get in protein, carbohydrates and little bit of fat, but you limit simple carbohydrates. That's going to help tremendously as well. Now when I say that important thing about limiting simple carbohydrates, you want to make sure that you're eating things that either are less produced. So anything that's got a lot of white flour or white sugar in it, probably isn't the best thing for your blood sugar levels. So if you're going more to whole type grains, whole wheat type products, proteins and again, a little bit of fat is actually good for you as well. All those are going to help to keep your blood sugar levels a lot more even and low. In addition to that, water, drinking water regularly and definitely a little bit of exercise, even if it's just two or three times a week are going to help with that as well. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Physical Medicine and Human Performance Specialist, wishing you a happy, healthy and balanced day.
