Hypoglycemia/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I cannot answer questions that would give medical advice, diagnose, or treat people's hypoglycemia.

Experience in the area

I have been a natural health practitioner in Illinois since 2001 and have educated thousands of people on nutrition and healthy living. Although, this did not prepare me for what happened in 2007 when I became very ill with adrenal fatigue and hypoglycemia. I have been able to correct my health issues working along with my doctors as partners on my team. I encourage people to go back to their doctors, get educated, and become empowered patients. I've gone to the school of hard knocks the my own health and feel obligated to share with others how I got better. Plus, my experience as and educator and author helps :)

Past/Present Clients

I have a few thousand clients that I have worked with since 2001 regarding natural health education - either via seminars, tele-trainings, newsletters, etc. In my private practice, I maintain a select group of clients averaging about 10 a week. I see them in my office or consult via telephone.

Your cells are probably screaming for sugar! That's why you are feeling that way. Few ideas for you, don't cut out carbs all the way. Do some really complex carbs (wild rice, quinoa, sweet potato) in small

What I'm finding is the more I work on the adrenals, the better my blood sugar and sleep are. Well, really it's the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal (HPA) axis, but it seems the adrenals are the one to primarily

You're asking me the same question I have been struggling with myself lately.  It's the low blood sugar and if you're low cortisol your body isn't filling the demand for glucose.  That's why we wake up

2014-08-29 insulin and hypoglycemia:

You might want to check out reactive hypoglycemia. It's when your blood sugar shoots up and then crashes after 3 to 6 hours.  To help this you can add fat / protein to every meal you eat. Toast with jelly
