Now available: Blood Sugar Support from Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D.
The frequency of blood sugar concerns you see in your practice could be viewed as a modern-day phenomenon: our DNA hasn’t evolved to adapt to the level of environmental toxins we’re exposed to; the Standard American Diet; or the sustained levels of chronic stress that control a lot of people’s lives. How our human bodies react to these influences can be unpredictable, and any extreme hormonal highs and lows we experience take a metabolic toll.
When we’re treating patients with blood sugar concerns, one of the first areas we may focus on (after genetics), is lifestyle or behavioral factors. Modifying these behaviors, however, doesn’t come easily to all patients and there’s only so much influence a practitioner can have on patient engagement.
For these patients, supplementation is one lifestyle choice that can feel realistic, accessible and achievable–the kind of gradual or micro-adjustment that can inspire other, long-lasting changes.
In the latest addition to The Protocol Library, Jacob Teitelmaum, M.D., and author of Diabetes is Optional: Hintonia: The Natural Way to Control Type 2 Diabetes shares the nutritional supplements he recommends to patients with blood sugar concerns who are seeking support.
