Diabetes Control

I was diagnosed with diabetes 6 years ago and was prescribed metformin to regulate my blood sugar levels. I wanted to try a more natural approach and had a course of acupuncture with Heidi. I already knew what I should and should not be eating, but really struggled with my sweet cravings.

I would often eat far too many biscuits and sweets of an evening mostly due to boredom, which impacted my blood sugar levels.   In addition to the acupuncture, Heidi gave me some useful advice on what to avoid to keep my blood sugar levels more stable and manage my cravings.

She also used auricular acupuncture, which had a positive impact on my sweet cravings, but it helped balance my blood sugar levels. This resulted in me needing less medication which I was pleased about.
