Mankind’s Old Friend Fenugreek

An interesting property of fenugreek is it's affinity for certain wild yeasts, which are beneficial to the digestive tract as well as being useful in the fermenting process of making traditional dosas or idlis, by attracting wild yeasts to the batter. Fenugreek is a great adaptogen.

Hypoglycemia

Hypoglycemia: A Better Approach

By Dr. Paavo Airola (1977)

Olympics in fall

I know you might be thinking “Why not choose something more up to date?” Dr. Paavo Airola was addressing a conditions that most other Doctors were ignoring or attacking, at that time. I found this book a very interesting read with that perspective in mind. It is a good place to start if you are interested in hypoglycemia. Over the last 30 years or so, hypoglycemia has become a household word and much of what he says is now common knowledge.

It is also interesting because the AMA etc are still doing the same thing they were doing then-insisting that certain conditions are non-existent and later doing a complete 180 degree turn-around. We all know today that hypoglycemia is not an imaginary state of being. It is rampant in our societies today, often a pre-cursor to diabetes.

If you have a condition that the medical establishment won’t acknowledge, don’t feel like you are the crazy one. This is a well established pattern. In fact the establishment is proving itself insane under this definition of insanity: repeating the same mistakes over and over again, expecting to get a different result.

Dr. Paavo Airola recommends a diet for hypoglycemia which is included in this book. He also recommends avoiding high protein diets, because of the strain they put on your calcium resources and your adrenal glands. He highly recommends brewer’s yeast for hypoglycemics.
