Blood sugar correction – fasting

1 Comment

Oh dear, I’ve been eating all wrong for me personally. Suddenly, it’s Hot Cross Bun time. I don’t know if it’s psychological but I know over Easter we won’t be in England, so I’ve been eating them NOW, in case you don’t get them in France!

And then again, Mr Furlong found a Christmas Pudding in the cupboard that we didn’t eat over Christmas. It was full of yummy cherries and brandy. I ate the WHOLE thing!

So my blood sugar has soared. I have to face the fact that if I don’t stick to my low carb high fat paleo way of eating, I AM diabetic.

But in 24 hours, I have it under control again. I used three things.

Fasting between six pm at night till one pm the next day.

Drinking nettle tea.

Taking a tiny amount of Epsom Salts from my finger that I stick into the Epsom Salts jar in the bathroom.

Recent scientific findings support use of nettles in treating diabetes.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
