Hormonal Imbalance #1: Insulin Imbalance

If you crave sugar or bread, feel weak and irritable at 3 or 4 o’clock in the afternoon, skip breakfast or eat a big muffin or bagel for breakfast, or have extra belly fat, you likely have serious blood sugar and insulin problems, which can cause depression, dementia, and panic disorder.

Just look down at your belly – if it’s sticking out or jiggles when you jump up and down, you have a problem.

We have seen an extraordinary increase in sugar consumption, from 10 pounds per person per year at the beginning of the 19th century to 158 pounds per person per year at the beginning of the 21st century.
In fact, more money is spent at gas stations on junk food than on gas!  We spend more money on processed and junk food than on new cars, new computers and higher education – combined!
That’s why 100 million Americans suffer from insulin resistance, or “pre-diabetes.” This condition is a problem by itself and causes “pre-dementia,” also known as mild cognitive impairment.  In fact, some scientists are now calling Alzheimer’s disease “type-3 diabetes”!
We are now seeing type-2 diabetes in children. Could this mean they will get Alzheimer’s as early as their 30s and 40s?
And what about sugar and depression? Researchers found that people with symptoms of depression were 42 percent more likely to develop diabetes than those without depressive symptoms. They also found that the more serious the symptoms, the higher the risk of diabetes.

“More than half of aging men will lose their sexual function, their testosterone levels will drop, and their estrogen levels will rise, making men more like women.”
So what’s the cure?
    • Balance your blood sugar by cutting out flour and sugar (especially high-fructose corn syrup).
    • Eat whole foods and make sure you have some protein like eggs, nuts, or a protein shake for breakfast.
      • Don’t forget to get moving. Exercise is the magic potion for your brain and your belly fat.
