Stable blood sugar for weight loss, insomnia, mood swings and more
The level of sugar in your blood depends mainly on how often and what you eat. It usually rises after a meal (especially after a meal rich in refined carbohydrates), and it goes down when you fast. The pancreas and the liver help you regulate those fluctuations by secreting appropriate hormones into the blood stream. Some degree of fluctuation of the blood sugar levels is admissible but in general, the more stable your blood sugar is the better.
Benefits of keeping your blood sugar stable:
- Stable mood – the more stable your blood sugar is, the happier and the more stable emotionally you will feel.
- Less stressed, worried, anxious and depresse – fluctuations in blood sugar are associated with hormones that turn on the stress response in the body; therefore, you will feel more stressed and anxious if your blood sugar is unstable.
- Control of appetite – the less stable your blood sugar is, the more the appetite goes out of control. People who constantly feel hungry usually experience big fluctuations in their blood sugar levels.
Improved quality of sleep – the more stable your blood sugar is, the better you will sleep and the more refreshed you will feel on wake up.
- Stable energy – if your blood sugar doesn’t fluctuate unhealthily, you will have more stable and even energy throughout the day.
Less fat around the abdomen – the fat burning mechanism is turned on when the blood sugar levels are stable; when big fluctuations in blood sugar levels occur, people tend to put on fat around the abdomen.

- Sometimes I feel a bit spacey and disconnected.
- I have elevated blood sugar or triglyceride levels.

What to do to stabilize your blood sugar?
- Eat smaller meals more often.
- Include protein with all meals.
- Include healthy fats in your diet.

Balancing blood sugar through the quantum healing techniques of BodyTalk
The BodyTalk system offers holistic healing for the mind and body and often a single quantum healing balance can resolve a number of complaints pertaining to both the physical and the mental health at once. In BodyTalk, we often address blood sugar problems by balancing the pancreatic reflex point. Many clients find this balance particularly effective in case of the following complaints: mood swings, irritability, sugar cravings, increased appetite, alcohol addictions, weight gain, anxiety, even feeling unlucky in life. In addition, this healing technique helps restore balance between the right and the left side of the body, which can contribute to the general physical and mental health and wellness in a very powerful way.
The pancreatic reflex point can easily become disturbed (and lead to many of the symptoms listed above) due to wearing tight bras, especially ones which have metal wire. That is why I often advise my female clients to switch to cotton bras without metal wire and to wear them as little as possible. If necessary, I also teach some of my clients how to balance their pancreatic reflex point in order to stabilize their blood sugar levels.
