Tell God your plans and listen to the chuckles.

Listen to your children's plans and get a few chuckles of your own.

You're welcome! Just my mom's common sense stuff, she was pretty smart!
Another thing you may want to do is sit down with a nutrition specialist and have them help you set up a template for your meals. The trackers on this site are a great help in staying on the right path, if you have that basic information.
Any problems, there are always people around, including the teams, plus sparkpeople experts and advisors, who can teach you how to use the site to make your personal goals achievable!... I love it here!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

I've gone to a naturopath before, and I NEVER HEARD of resetting or anything like that. Interesting...
As long as you are taking regular medications for your condition, you need to exercise extreme caution with homeopathic remedies. Clear everything with your medical doctor and your pharmacist before you change your protocol, so a record is at hand in case something happens and you end up in an ER somewhere and all they have on record is what your regular doctor has listed. A simple fender bender can threaten your life if they give you something that reacts with what you are taking or doing.
My medical team is not averse to me trying new things as long as they know so they can prevent such issues from being a problem.
Good luck~

I've used the blood glucose meter that takes the blood from one's arm. It is not a hassle at all. The finger prick is more accurate, but for me it is close enough.
I have never heard of a homeopathic reset.

Oh gosh, honestly, I use a Freestyle Light and have for years. Sorry. Can't be of much help on the meter.

But good for you for going paleo. I have found that, at least for me, I really am intolerant of carbs. Oh I can have them sparingly (and most of my carbs are from fruits and veggies). No whites (white bread, white potatoes, white rice, processed foods). That, combined w/exercise is the magic combo for me.

Good luck!

thank you! Yes- my nutriionist put me on a strict Paleo diet for the first 3 months- no carbs right now.... herbs and salads/heavy veggies with protein.

Let me ask you about glucose meters- i would really prefer the non-invasive newer meters vs pricking and testing blood- any thoughts on this ?

Can you get a referral to a dietitian for some nutrition advice? And be sure you're plotting out your meals and concentrating on COMPLEX carbs vs. simple carbs. Exercise is crucial, too. Be sure you're testing your blood sugars often.

Good luck!

Hello to all in this group. I have a familial predisposition to diabetes, and it's tapped my shoulder. I had blood work done last may which showed pre-diabetic numbers, as my blood sugars were on the rise- i was overweight, and my dr recommended dropping 30-40 pounds over the next year, watch my diet, and excersie.
I did. I dropped 20 lbs by December, and went back to the dr's for new blood work. My blood sugars have continued to rise, and i was put on Janumet right away.
I am actually very lucky, in that i am 50 (almost 51 and have not other health conditions that require regular medications. While i do want to continue with Janumet- i have found my homeopath offering me a great opportunity to cleanse organs, support with natural remedy to 'reset' the functions.
Has anyone used homeopathy to manage or help your organs get re-set?

I should add that this homeopathic dr has in the last year help my daughter with her lyme disease and mold poisoning- so she is very trusted by me.
