5 Tips to Balance Blood Sugar Naturally with Essential Oils

by Jodi Cohen

Have you been feeling sleepy during the day?  Perhaps craving a burst of caffeine to get you going in the morning or keep you going in the afternoon?

Perhaps you notice yourself yawning more than usual?  Or waking up in the middle of the night and having trouble getting back to sleep?  Or gaining weight that is hard to lose.

You may not realize it, but those are all indicators that our blood sugar levels are out of balance.  If you are curious about your blood sugar balance, you can check out this FREE checklist. Learn how to naturally lower blood sugar with Essential Oils in this post.

 

Naturally Lower Blood Sugar

As you may know, blood sugar, or glucose levels in our blood, is the primary source of energy for all of our cells. Carbohydrates in the food we eat are digested and absorbed as glucose, then transported through the bloodstream, supplying energy to every cell in the body. The body is continually monitoring the levels of glucose in the blood (blood sugar) to ensure that it doesn’t spike too high or dip too low.  The goal is to maintaining the internal stability and balance necessary for optimal function.

Blood sugar plays a key role in:

  • Energy levels, including optimal sleep
  • Brain health, including moods and mental focus.
  • Hormonal balance
  • Weight loss
  • Optimal health, including the optimal function of every organ

 

Balance Blood Sugar Naturally with Essential Oils

Control Sugar Cravings
Diet is a primary tool for controlling blood sugar, ideally limiting the intake of foods that spike blood sugar, like sugar and processed carbohydrates, like bread, chips, bagels, muffins – all the goodies we often crave when our blood sugar dips.  To help control cravings and balance blood sugar between meals, Vibrant Blue Oils Blood Sugar Balance blend works wonders when added to water.

 

Optimize Fats Digestion
Increasing the intake of healthy fats.  Fat slows down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream.   This helps curb hunger cravings and sustain blood sugar levels for longer periods of time.    Unfortunately, it is not enough to add more fat to our diets.  Fats can be hard to digest so we need to support the body’s ability to digest and assimilate the additional fats we are consuming.   Vibrant Blue Oils Gall Bladder™ blend helps support and optimize fat digestion for optimal blood sugar support.  Click here for a checklist to assess your fat digestion.

 

Support the Pancreas
The digestive system breaks down the carbohydrates from food into glucose which goes straight into the bloodstream, causing blood sugar concentrations to rise.  The pancreas releases the hormone insulin to transport the glucose into the cells.  As more and more cells receive glucose, blood sugar levels come down to normal again. Excess glucose is stored as glycogen (stored glucose) in the liver and muscles.  If you have not eaten for a while and blood glucose concentrations drop, the pancreas releases another hormone called glucagon. Glucagon triggers the breakdown of glycogen into glucose, thus pushing blood glucose levels back up to normal.

The widespread consumption of refined carbohydrates and lack of enzyme-rich raw foods overloads the pancreas, forcing it to constantly release insulin.  Balancing the pancreas with Vibrant Blue Oils Pancreas™ blend can help support fatigue/energy Dips during the day, weight loss, sugar and caffeine cravings and quality sleep.

 

Support the Liver
The liver acts as the body’s glucose (energy) reservoir and helps to maintain steady and constant blood sugar levels by balancing the uptake, storage and release of glucose depending on the body’s need for energy.  More specifically, excess glucose is removed from the blood, and converted into glycogen (the storage form of glucose) which is stored in the liver. When blood sugar levels drop, the liver initiates a process to normalize blood sugar levels.  Over time, toxins can accumulate in the liver, compromising function and opening the door to blood sugar imbalance and other health concerns.  Supporting the liver with Vibrant Blue Oils Liver™ helps to optimize vitality and function.

 

Support Adrenal Glands
Blood sugar imbalances can exhaust the adrenals.  For example, eating a sugary meal will spike then quickly crash blood sugar, requiring the adrenals to release cortisol to stabilize blood  sugar.   Similarly, stress hormones such as adrenaline (epinephrine) can increase blood sugar levels to meet your body’s demands for energy.   Every stress response is a blood sugar response and fatigued adrenal glands can drop cortisol, and blood sugar, levels.  Consider supporting and balancing the adrenals with Vibrant Blue Oils Adrenal™ blend.
