Everyone who participated in this program was able to reduce their fasting blood sugar level, all but one person were able to decrease their hemoglobin A1c level and ALL participants lost weight! That’s the power of their dedication to dietary and lifestyle changes that work!

Blood Sugar and A1c

Let me explain what A1c is:

Hemoglobin A1c, expressed as a percentage, is the measure of how much blood sugar has become permanently attached to a hemoglobin molecule. Why is that important? Since hemoglobin is part of a red blood cell and red blood cells generally turn over every 90 days, the A1c level provides a estimate of their blood sugar control over that period of time.

As I talk about in my class, there are many dangers of having high blood sugars for hours on end, day after day, year after year. When the internal organs and blood vessels of the body are constantly bathed with high blood sugar, damage occurs which can lead to heart disease, circulatory problems, heart attack, kidney disease and damage to the vessels of the eyes.

Learn How to Keep Blood Sugar Stable

Participants in the program learn how to create meals and snacks that keep the blood sugar stable and low. They receive instruction on how to lower blood sugar using whole nutrient dense foods, rejecting processed foods and eliminating sugar.

Stress can cause blood sugar to go up in a nano- second and so we have experiential learning involving meditation and physical activity to drive home the importance of practicing the stress relief that is right for you.
