Why Does My Body Hurt?

Chronic pain is a million dollar problem. Here are a few facts about chronic pain.

Chronic Pain Costs more than $635 Billion dollars a year (American Health & Drug Benefits

Back pain is the most common form (Pain Doctor)

70% of chronic pain sufferers are women (Harvard Health Publishing)

50% of adults suffer from chronic headaches (World Health Organization) 

Pain is very real. I am not going to try to simplify this too much especially if you have been suffering from pain for a long time but if there is any way to lessen the pain. Is it worth learning about? 

There are some steps to take in the journey to relieve the pain, but it does take dedication and focus–a quality difficult to conjure up when hurting. 

Pain can be due to:

Damaged tissues

Nutritional deficiency

Being emotionally locked in anger, shame, fear, etc

Poor circulation in the tissue

Toxins in the tissues

There’s much to unpack here, but one of the first things I would suggest is a detox. 

What kind of pain are you experiencing and where in your body?

Why is Fat So Dangerous?

Symptoms of high blood sugars are dry mouth, thirst, blurred vision, and frequent urination?. These are signs of something going awry. 

Some of the causes of high blood sugars are too little insulin, too much food, too much of the wrong kinds of fat, illness, stress, and infections. 

At the first sign of trouble your pancreas is strong enough to dump insulin into your blood and shuttle the sugar into two places for storage, your muscle and your liver and other tissues to be used, like your brain.

 If the causes of high blood sugars do not change, the body will start to rebel.  Your liver can get to a point where it cannot store any more sugar / glycogen and so it is going to start to package the extra sugar/glucose into fat cells. That’s fat — around your abdomen, liver and muscles.  Lab work says-elevated triglycerides. As this fat coats your cells, the sugar can’t get in. Problem compounded. 

These free floating sugar will now move into tissues that do not need a special gatekeeper (receptor) to get in–thus the problem with damage to the eyes, kidneys, and nerves of feet and hands. 

If you feel like you are doing everything right and are still having troubles lowering the sugars, then it’s time to look at what’s happening at a deeper level. The body is amazing, but under chronic assaults, it will wear out. Repair is required for true health.  And yes the body can repair IF you start early enough. 

Rejuvenation. That’s what I offer in my program. DM with any questions. Many people know this information, but the fact that we have 25 million diabetics in America tells me that not enough people  know.  Don’t assume. Please share this with any pre diabetes or T2 diabetic you know.

Are you Snubbing Your Nose at Diabetes?

Most people know that diabetes is a serious condition, but surprisingly there are some that still ignore their symptoms until it’s too late. Please don’t  do that. 

Diabetes is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US and the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure, and amputation. I’ve lost relatives to this disease!

The program I offer will educate women 45-60  to understand the disease process and to know what it will take to help the body to recover. 

One of the simplest things to do to lower blood sugars is to exercise, but more specifically to do weight training. 

A few baseline understandings: Normal blood sugar is 70-100 mg/dl. It is normal for it to fluctuate during the day even for a healthy individual. The lowest point of sugar levels occurs around 2 AM. Doing pushups even when you maybe wake up with a dropping blood sugar will release glycogen-helping your sugar levels. 

During exercise the muscle burns your sugars/ glucose a  20 times greater rate than when you’re resting. During  exercising insulin secretion decreases. Is that a good thing? Yaaaasss! 

That’s an excellent thing.

 As I stated previously a major problem comes when you wear out the beta cells in your pancreas releasing this insulin hormone. Then you will need to take insulin in order to substitute for what your pancreas cannot do anymore. So it is very good news  for the muscles to take over burning the sugar. 

Does  that make sense?

Any pre-diabetic or diabetic should be doing weight training. It’s a necessity.

Do you follow a weight lifting program?
