Symptoms are the language of your body.
To suppress symptoms without understanding what they’re telling you is a slippery slope. #dontkillthemessenger
Oftentimes individual symptoms can be vague (like low energy) but if you zoom out and look at the patterns, you can really begin to understand.
For example, you have low energy when you wake up and every afternoon but have a lot of energy at night, you have trouble sleeping and falling asleep, you get headaches when your meal is delayed and you have trouble losing weight. To me, all of these signs alone can have multiple causes but when we see them together, my mind is screaming blood sugar and adrenals.
If we just caffeinated and took sleeping pills and cut calories to try to get rid of these symptoms we would never get rid of them or hit the root cause.
The other issue I see with symptoms is that oftentimes people are highly unaware of how they feel.

Your blood sugar levels impact every organ in your body! This is why blood sugar symptoms can be so diverse and broad!
Starting with the BRAIN .. common signs of blood sugar issues can be low energy, mood issues (anxiety, depression, irritability), memory loss, brain fog, headaches, migraines, poor concentration, dizziness, and more.
SKIN: Blood sugar issues can lead to acne, and can cause or exacerbate other skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, and lead to other skin conditions like acanthosis nigricans.
THYROID: One of the coolest things I witness when working with clients on their blood sugar is that almost all of them, rather quickly, get to lower or come off of their thyroid medications! Even those with Hashimoto’s!
HEART: Insulin resistance is the leading cause of high blood pressure and heart disease. Sugar depletes minerals essential for contracting and relaxing muscles (Mg, Ca). This can lead to arrhythmias.
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: High blood sugar levels are inflammatory. High...
Blood sugar symptoms are unfamiliar to most of us, but over 88% of adults are metabolically unhealthy. This means blood sugar issues y’all!!
Fixing blood sugar issues and achieving optimal health is not just about changing macros.
Because what if you can’t digest fats well??
Or what if you’re a stress case which means you’re chronically in sympathetic over drive (hello hormone imbalance) and burning through minerals?
What if you’re consuming foods you don’t digest well or processed foods that lead to inflammation?
What if you use toxic products and have a sluggish liver?
What if you don’t move or work out?
All of these things (and many more) need to be addressed!!
This is why so often I hear that people plateau or that they can’t get the results of someone they’re copying on Instagram.
It’s not about following “the right” template or meal plan.
It’s about tapping into your body and learning what it needs. It’s...
At a normal weight or under weight?? You can still be dealing with blood sugar issues.
I saw this quote the other day and it rings true in this case, “Just because you’re skinny, doesn’t mean you’re healthy.”
If you are going through my content and relating to the symptoms regardless of your weight, you likely are experiencing these issues and would benefit from working on controlling your blood sugar.
Why would you want to do that?? Because our blood sugar not only controls how we feel at every moment of the day, it also has huge impacts on our long term health.
High blood sugar levels or constant spikes and crashes is inflammatory, taxes your adrenals, imbalances your hormones, depletes you of nutrients, is stressful on your organs, and more.
This is why diabetes is a leading cause of macular degeneration, kidney disease, heart disease, and is associated with Alzheimer’s, cancer, autoimmunity, and a myriad of other chronic inflammatory diseases.
