Diabetics who do not maintain their blood sugar levels are at risk of experiencing the symptoms of high blood sugar levels. Most blood sugar spikes usually occur after a person has consumed a meal that contains sugar. If you or someone you know is at risk for contracting diabetes or is already has diabetes, that person should know the symptoms associated with high blood sugar in order to preemptively deal with the symptoms. The excess blood glucose in the bloodstream that the body cannot convert into energy is then processed using the urinary tract.
The brain will respond to excess sugar within the bloodstream by telling the body to drink more water.
Increased amounts of glucose within the blood stream can lead to eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy.
High glucose levels within the body can lead to damaged blood vessels due to a hardening of the arteries. When this normal process goes wrong, there is either not enough insulin to do the signalling or the cells are "insulin resistant", that is, they do not seem to understand what the insulin is trying to tell them to do about the glucose. My name is Dr Iris Bell, and I am an alternative medicine doctor, researcher, and educator educated at Harvard and trained at Stanford Medical School, as well the University of California - San Francisco.
For normal people, their system keeps blood sugar in the range of 70-100 milligrams per deciliter while fasting (after not eating overnight, for instance). Different age groups may have somewhat different cut-offs that define what is "too high." If the blood sugar stays high for long periods of hours, someone can develop damage to their body's tissues, especially kidneys, blood vessels in the brain and heart and nerve damage in peripheral nerves that normally detect pain, vibration, and temperature in the toes and fingers.
Once a person has been diagnosed with diabetes, they usually need to use a combination of diet, exercise, weight loss, and medications to control blood sugar levels. The drugs are not always effective or are only partly effective in lowering blood sugar (and sometimes they overshoot and cause serious short term problems of very low blood sugar levels that can cause seizures, brain damage, or even death), and they can cause their own serious side effects, and so reducing the risk of diabetes is always preferable to taking drugs to treat it once it develops.

It is a great pleasure that this hyperglycemia condition can be brought under control by following some simple herbal remedies in home.
The cinnamon bark is found to produce insulin like activity which proved to be very beneficial in cases of hyperglycemia. The National Institute of Health has found out that the ginseng is very beneficial for the hyperglycemic patients. The active chemical constituent in the ginseng is proven to reduce the fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels in the hyperglycemic patients. Golden seal is a medical plant which is recently found to have beneficial effects for high blood sugar patients.
This provides helps in the stimulation of pancreas thereby to increase the insulin production in the body. The phytochemicals and other nutrients in the juniper berries are found to have a good glucose balancing effect in the blood cells. It is safe and wiser to consult your physician before making changes in the present medication dosage or before introducing any new drug combination. The following readings on my Glucometer are the results of actual tests conducted recently by me on blood samples drawn from my own finger tips.
I do believe that people showing random blood sugar counts of 300 + can not walk on their own to a hospital but need to be carried in. And to answer a question even before it is asked – NO, I am not taking any medications even now to control this situation.
I know some may consider me a bit insane to have actually allowed things to go this far but believe me when I say that I am not putting my body through any kind of strain and discomfort normally associated with Diabetes. Let me start by sharing a story regarding this middle aged lady who learnt Reiki from me back in 1998 or thereabouts. She sounded hysterical when she called me a couple of years later and reported that her Blood Sugar had gone through the roof. I did know a bit about her family and after calming her down asked her to recount the facts of her life before and after learning Reiki and Crystal therapies.


She recollected that earlier she had to literally force herself out of bed every morning at about 8.00 AM and then too with a heavy head and absolutely with neither the desire, nor the energy to do anything.
She had two daughters; the elder one already married a couple of years before they all learnt Reiki. After learning the therapies, the same lady was now able to get out of bed by about 6 AM, freshen up and finish her self healing morning routine before taking up the house hold work. The fact of the matter was that while her blood sugar count had apparently increased, the quality of her life had undoubtedly improved.
Yet, this increased blood sugar was a bit disturbing to her and she had come looking for some solutions. She reluctantly agreed to stop practicing Reiki and Crystals and went for re-tests five days later. The fact of the matter is that I have noticed that both the Blood Sugar and the Blood Pressure levels are known to go up after regular sessions of energy working especially with Reiki. That the blood pressure level does go up immediately after exercising the body is a known fact but this is actually considered as being good for the human body.
But as far as Blood Sugar levels are concerned, physical exercise is recommended for controlling the blood sugar. In the meantime, I am going to take regular measurements with my Glucometer as well as with the Blood Pressure monitor and start posting the findings online regularly. An important aspect, according to me in this study, is also the state of the mind as stress and blood sugar levels are known to be directly linked. The thought just occurred to me, as I am writing this, that I should join a gym for some physical workouts and then record the variations, if any.
I will also be posting details regarding how this situation has evolved over the last four to five years or so.
Think of the endothelium as the satin lining of a coat sleeve, if it gets snagged or ripped, your arm will not go through it smoothly, Similarly -blood doesn’t flow smoothly in adamaged artery, and it can actually do more damage. We are currently in the process of adding new questions every day - so please bookmark us for future reference. After the body has finished processing the body, the sugar levels then return back to equilibrium. It is much better for a person to be cautious and visit the doctor because they feel that they are experiencing symptoms rather than wait until the symptoms take their toll.
I know the daily challenges of diabetes first-hand, and I know where to look to find drug-free answers for you in working to reverse your diabetes or prevent pre-diabetes from becoming a diagnosed case of type 2 diabetes, and reduce your risk of complications.
Blood sugar can go up and down depending on diet, specific points in time (it may be highest in the mornings when the body naturally releases the most cortisol, an essential hormone that is also released under stress but that is in the system all the time in some amount), after exercise, and during infections.
Lifestyle changes, if done thoroughly and properly, can work just as well as any drug and have a much safer long term outcome in terms of side effect risks. The extract of the leaves from this tree is found much beneficial in hyperglycemic patients. It induces the glucose transport from blood to the body cells so that the glucose is properly utilized. Bitter gourd has multiple ways through which it helps the control of blood sugar. It inhibits the enzyme that is required for the breakdown of disaccharides to glucose. The insulin like substance in bitter gourd aids the transport of glucose from blood to the body cells as the banaba does. The dosage prescribed above may vary for each individual depending on the severity of the condition.
You accept that you are following any advice at your own risk and will properly research or consult healthcare professional. However, I was in complete control of all my faculties even while my body was showing an abnormally high count of 473 just the other day. As a word of caution, however, please do not blindly try to follow what I have been doing as there are lots and lots of things that need to be learnt, lots of muck that needs clearing especially from the mind before doing something as drastic as going off medications totally. I know that you know that I am not putting my life out on a limb.] Hopefully something wonderful will emerge from this research too.


This had happened in spite of all the hours spent doing Reiki and Crystal therapy on herself. After pushing her body through the routine of housework, cooking, breakfast and lunch, she had no option left but to take an extended nap in the afternoons before forcing herself out of bed for the evening routine. The younger one got married later and had also been blessed with a baby at around the time that this story was unfolding.
After finishing the duties at her own house, it was off to her younger daughter’s home to take care of the needs of both the mother and the new born. She was much more energetic, to say the least, and was for once happy doing something for her own self too.
In order to allay her fears, and in order to really get to the bottom of this, I told her to stop the Reiki and Crystal therapies for a short period of 5 days only and then go for re-tests from the same lab.
She reported back findings in the range of 130 or so from the same lab and this was something that she could live with.
I will be doing a bit of video recordings of the tests whenever convenient, for the records.
So I will also try to give feedback regarding my mood swings, the tensions and stresses in life etc. The endothelium becomes stickier, attracting blood clots, thus causing the blood vessels to constrict and not expand smoothly – which eventualy can lead to high blood pressure. Insulin is the main hormone in the body, secreted by the pancreas gland, as part of digestion to signal the body cells to take up glucose and use it to power the cells throughout the body. Check out this resource here. Or just start with the basics - a good glucose meter and test strips.
This is a very important condition to be concerned because when this is left untreated it may lead to various other complications like Diabetes, tissue damages in brain, kidneys and even the blood vessels. The leaf has a special compound called corosolic acid (a triterpinoid compound) which gives good benefits for the hyperglycemia condition. I made a choice of not embarking on the laid down routine of medical intervention, the reasons for which I will be sharing in later posts. Predictably, she used to have no energy left at the end of the day and it was bedtime by about 10 PM everyday. After doing the tidying up, bathing the baby and a bit of cooking for her daughter too, it was back to her own home for her afternoon meal and a bit of siesta. My breathing rates have been drastically reduced over the years and I am generally breathing in a lot more oxygen than I used to. People whose fasting and 2-hour post-meal blood sugar levels are above those general cut-offs are considered either pre diabetic (if the value is high but not quite past the threshold level to diagnose diabetes) or diabetic. I cleared up my mind to start with and then started observing what was happening to my body and mind. Early evening time was reserved for the crystal therapy before tackling the house work of the two homes again. This in turn is helping my body produce more and more of energy which then is working to remove the remaining toxic deposits from my system. In the meantime, I also experienced the various known symptoms of diabetes and then also learnt how to deal with each and every one as they have come up. Bedtime now was usually later than 11 PM and it was back to the next day’s routine at 6 AM. The generally relaxed state of mind that I have gotten used to will also not allow me to go back to being the old self.
Of course, the background of over a decade and a half of energy working has also proved beneficial. Based on the knowledge gained during this period of time, I can safely conclude that high blood sugar is actually not as bad as it is being made out to be.
