A 1 hr consultation each later and both patients feel satisfied to accept the Naturopathic approach to their Treatment Plans complete with wholesome, easy to follow, individualized recipes sent to them post-session by email.

Sugar – the highs, lows and benefits from a lifestyle free – from refined white sugar

January 11, 2014

Over Christmas period, we are not alone in how the nation (with some exceptions) indulged in a sugar fest of boxes of chocolates, marzipans and the like; in our household alone, there was ‘treats’ everywhere. This may appear as a bit of harmless fun, but many of us recognise that we feel worse afterwards.

I certainly noticed this when I gave up eating processed sugar (sucrose) over 10 years ago. (I can count on my hands & toes, the occasions I’ve tried it since. This last winter I gave in a bit but am back on the wagon again now, awaiting the cacao-free time of Lent…) I stopped eating sugar for the reason that I had undiagnosed candida and a craving +gut flora imbalanced had caused me to develop a leaky gut and feel severe malaise.

Sugar Types (to reduce and avoid): refined grains and flour eg white bread\pittas, rice, pastry (sweet or salted), pizza dough, pasta, table sugar, couscous.

Signs of excess sugar (overload in physical system)

Conditions: At worst Diabetes, at best Candida (inc.thrush) – a yeast induced fungal infection which feeds on sugar – if it is supplied with a food source and the right conditions, it thrives. Food intolerance, leaky gut…

Why it may become a problem:

Plus a risk factor of developing other conditions as it reduces leukocyte (white blood cells of the immune system) activity by 5 hrs. Most conditions (in my experience and of others’, improved healing time eg faster healing and a reduction of illnesses eg cold, flu and even disease).

Weight-gain. I know of no-one who has not lost weight \ balanced their natural weight through giving up sugar. ie it aids in weight-loss enormously. Weight gain through white sugar is a common side-effect. It plays with the chemicals which affect our appetite and satiety. Sugar contains ’empty nutrients’ ie it gives us no nutrients of its own but in return, takes some of our own vitamin and mineral reserves.

Soft, glowing, clear skin: In addition to higher vitamin and minerals remaining in the body, we enjoy all over better skin tone 🙂 Which may save a small fortune on moisturisers and lotions over the years!

Why this is a bad thing: depression and other mental health concerns have been connected to having a low vitamin and  mineral  reserve. There are many conditions which are prevalent in malnourished conditions, as a result of a lack. Sugar effectively ‘steals’ the beneficial molecules eg. Zinc, Magnesium, B vitamins.

Eating well, healthily with a reduced sugar intake is likely to assist sorting out any concern in the initial stages. It is far harder to tackle underlying concerns when the immune system function is hindered and under functioning. Best to support the immune system by reducing or eliminating refined sugar intake. Even notice the difference after a few days!

due to the acid, inflammatory nature.

To reduce the conditions, here are alternatives:

The alternative is a sugar-free Raw Chocolate, organic and Fair-Trade.
