The Natural Woman's Guide to Living with the Complications of Diabetes by M. Sara Rosenthal
The complications that can develop from failing to manage Type 2 diabetes can be very serious. Because of female hormonal fluctuations, blood sugar levels, and insulin levels can vary more widely. As a result, the complications faced by women with diabetes can be more insidious. M. Sara Rosenthal explains the range of complications associated with diabetes in the female body and focuses on stopping them before they start-naturally. To combat these problems, she provides details on blood sugar management, diet, exercise, stress reduction techniques, the use of herbs and nutritional supplements, and body work. Each of the chapters contains alternative approaches to dealing with a specific complication, including sections on "What to Eat" (food and supplements), "How to Move" (exercises and body work), and "Flower Power" (herbs and aromatherapy).
