Hypoglycemia: refers to the condition of low blood sugar.


While very common in both men and women, hypoglycemia is NOT what it appears.

Like many other so-called medical problems, hypoglycemia is usually determined by misleading tests [glucose tolerance test] that yield manufactured diagnoses designed to placate patients while hiding the fact that the experts do NOT have a clue about the cause of the condition tormenting the patient.

In reality, the effects associated with hypoglycemia are confirmation of carbohydrate dependence and insulin/leptin and adrenaline resistance.  Meaning, hypoglycemia is the effect, NOT the cause of the misery.

Symptoms include symptoms such as blurred vision, jitters, fatigue, headache, dizziness, low energy, brain fog, constant hunger, overeating, obesity, female issues, yeast overgrowth, gas and bloat, bowel issues, body odor, bladder infections [so-called], ravenous appetite, sugar and carbohydrate cravings, etc.

By comparison, hyperglycemia [elevated blood sugar levels]  affects far more people.  Hyperglycemia goes by other names such as: diabetes type 1 or 2, insulin dependent diabetic, non insulin dependent diabetic, etc. when the REAL  problem is hormonal resistance.

Hyperglycemia is commonly diagnosed: diabetes!  Unfortunately, even so-called healthy, normal blood sugar levels are 20-40 points too high, and if ignored over time, elevated blood sugar presents new and different symptoms which should be identified as diabetes and called what it actually is: diabetes type 3 [diabetes of the brain]!

It is important to realize that hyperglycemia is the condition of (+ -) 65% of the population, regardless of age.  In other words, everyone who is not officially diabetic is PRE-DIABETIC!

Perhaps the reader can now begin to understand why Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Asperger’s, ADD, ADHD, autism, senility, memory loss and brain fog is epidemic among the general population due to sugar glazing [think varnish] of the brain’s leptin receptors.

Brain receptors read leptin levels [leptin is a regulatory hormone made by the fat cells; leptin instructs the brain the pancreas to either turn-on or turn off insulin production] and then communicate the information to the pancreas to respond.

Absent a signal to not produce insulin, the pancreas AUTOMATICALLY releases insulin.  The problem arises when the cells RESIST and refuse to accept circulating blood sugar; hence, sugar levels rise and this condition is called INSULIN RESISTANCE!

Hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia are flip sides of the same problem; meaning, each presents itself and manifests with different symptoms, but the factors driving the problem are the same.

Interestingly, the solution for blood sugar issues, in general, is the same as for adrenal burn-out, cortisol issues, poor sleep, low energy, menstrual issues, eating disorders, obesity, brain fog, poor memory, belly fat and poor skin and hair.

THe reason for the very broad list of blood sugar related symptoms is because blood sugar levels affect EVERYTHING because insulin, leptin and adrenaline are REGULATORY hormones and if the body is unable to measure and respond to it’s internal environment, the regulatory effects are lost and the system goes into systemic, low-grade inflammation.

People with hyperglycemia are often diagnosed as diabetic and many are given medications and insulin to manage the symptoms instead of the cause of the problem.

Unfortunately, once on diabetes medication, one must be careful about withdrawing from their use.  Guidance is strongly suggested and equally hard to come by.

The ReVive Protocol offers practicable answers for many blood sugar issues because the problem is generally NOT what it appears and the diagnosis handed-out is, at best, a misleading label based on symptoms and canned answers based on a faulty medical model and poor understanding of cause.
