9. Progression Of Hypoglycemia
A vicious cycle begins to emerge when repeated errors of diet are made. These errors do not always result in hypoglycemia, but they can. In some persons, severe symptoms will arise elsewhere.
However, in the person demonstrating symptoms of hypoglycemia, this is what happens:
A concentrated sugar-containing food is consumed. Blood sugar begins to rise rapidly. Because of the intense sugar concentration of the food resulting in an abrupt rise in blood sugar, the pancreas is stimulated to produce a large amount of insulin needed to dispense the sugar. If the adrenals do not quickly produce a counter-balancing hormone to signal the end of insulin production, it is possible that blood sugar levels will fall below an acceptable level.
At this point, blood sugar levels are below normal and the signs of hypoglycemia are present: fatigue, headaches, irritability, etc. This will often be “cured” by the consumption of either a concentrated sugar product or an adrenal stimulant such as coffee, cola or nicotine. The cycle is repeated over and over, thus resulting in enervation of bodily organs and glands and toxic accumulation from the refined sugar products and other wastes.
