Eating for hormonal balance is a different approach that gets better results. 

It’s not about counting calories, it’s about honoring your metabolic hormones on a daily basis to allow your body to find it’s natural rhythm.
Why Blood Sugar?
Blood sugar dis-regulation is our 21st century global health crisis, and a contributing factor to Diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer.
According to a report released in July 2017, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “More than 100 million U.S. adults are now living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. 

The report finds that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans – 9.4 percent of the U.S. population –have diabetes. Another 84.1 million have pre-diabetes, a condition that if not treated often leads to type 2 diabetes within five years. 

There are so many forces against us when it comes to processed and convenience foods. Our busy schedules demand time away from the kitchen and we are outsourcing our nutritional needs like never before.

The foundation of our health and vitality lies with balancing our hormones. Blood sugar balance is hormonal balance. Our body is always striving for balance, and in science we call this balance Homeostasis. 

The more we can support the body with homeostasis, our hormones become balanced and the body has what it needs, it is not in fight or flight, it is relaxed and can repair, and be calm and healthy. 

I have seen this countless times with my clients, and have witnessed their health and vitality return when we restore their health through the lens of blood sugar balance.
