I’m Pre-Diabetic –  4 Steps To Take

Many times, people come to me immediately after medical news. Pre-Diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension are the most common. The news is rarely a total surprise but shocking all the same. So Now what?
More than likely, your doctor will prescribe a medication and instruct you to make some lifestyle changes.  Less stress, more sleep, diet and exercise. This is the recipe for nearly all of our “self induced” medical problems. But while the directions for the medications are clear, the advice for “lifestyle changes” is vague. It’s not what doctors specialize in.

Here are some steps that will help you out.

Weight Loss – Healing Old Wounds

One of the main objectives of our mind is to keep us safe. That feeling in your stomach when you get too close to the edge of a cliff. The fear of walking down a dark street. The negative thoughts you get when you think about dieting. HUH?

Unfortunately, the mind doesn’t distinguish between real danger and perceived danger. In the instance of weight loss, the mind is protecting you from the pains of the past and fear of pain that would come from failure in the future. This reaction is brought on by how we think about weight loss. What our ever so clever mind doesn’t know is that the pain of being overweight can be debilitating and painful.
