Sugar is the basic fuel of cells. This doesn’t mean that we have to eat sugary foods as the body manufactures the sugar it needs from all the carbohydrates we eat. If the glucose isn’t getting to the cells, a craving for sugar often results. What often causes sugar cravings in diabetics is not usually low blood sugar, but an inability of the cells to utilize blood sugar.
Several factors such as nutrient deficient foods continue the vicious cycle with a Diabetic -poor protein and fat metabolism, constant cravings for sugars, poor circulation, low energy and anxiety, all add to an imbalance within the cells and the cravings continue.
Tissue Salts stimulate cell metabolism, provide the cells with minerals, and ensure that the minerals which the body ingests in food are evenly distributed. Magnesium is one of the key minerals needed, especially by diabetics, to assist with sugar cravings and the proper digestion of foods.
I often recommend Comb 5 & Mag Phos for diabetics. This is a combination of the 5 Phosphates (Mag Phos, Kali Phos, Nat Phos, Ferr Phos & Calc Phos) working synergistically to support the cells of the body to maintain proper absorption of nutrition and ensuring the cells of the body are able to utilise blood sugar.
Martin & Pleasance formulates Tissue Salts in spray form without lactose to ensure that they are suitable for diabetics. I have also found that Mag Phos cream is an effective topical cream for aches, pains and spasms experienced by diabetics.
