The provocation of the immune system also leads to inflammation and swelling and causes the release of endorphins ultimately producing the well-known cycle of allergy (intolerance) and addiction; over 50% of those with food intolerance actually crave the foods that they are intolerant to! In addition, serotonin levels drop adding to the cycle of cravings which are in turn satisfied by the foods which destabilize insulin and blood sugar and ultimately cause additional weight gain; in other words a vicious circle and it takes an overall approach to ‘undo’ the damage done. A promising new product that has just been released is PrenuPhase by Numedica. PrenuPhase is a powerful carb and blood sugar controller. The formula has three effective ingredients: Prenulin® -- clinically proven to aid in reducing the body’s ability to absorb sugar, thereby lowering glucose and insulin impact by almost 30%. Phase 2 Carb Controller® -- an all-natural, non-stimulant, white kidney bean extract clinically shown to help delay the digestion and absorption of dietary starches and InnoSlim® -- shown to help decrease circulating glucose and may reduce glucose absorption in the intestine while reducing fat accumulation. I would recommend the combination of PrenuPhase, a low GL diet, which can help gradually reduce sugar intolerance, and the identification and elimination of any food sensitivity or intolerances which is essential in order for the approach to be fully effective. You can talk to me more about PrenuPhase, food intolerance tests or the Ultra Lite Diet at the Dripping Springs Pharmacy every other Saturday or contact me at the Lake Hills Pharmacy any day of the week. No you’re not crazy it is quite possible that you are sensitive to sugar and possibly other foods. But the good news is there is hope! Best of Health!
