Millions of people suffer from a personal energy crisis. For some, their energy crashes or runs out of steam at various times. For others, it never really gets going at all.

Three organs control blood sugar (the fuel in your blood that cells run on), and the way you eat and drink, your stress levels, and other factors determine how well they work. Hypoglycemia is a word that means low blood sugar. Diabetes is a disease of high blood sugar and is often also caused by overeating sugar and carbohydrates.

The adrenal glands are often the first blood sugar organs to become worn out. They are the "stress-relating glands" of your body. If you have been emotionally stressed (over family, divorces, money, job, etc.), physically stressed (lack sleep, chronic pain, etc.) or biochemically messed-up (wrong input of sugar, flour, caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, diet products or stimulants) you will have worn down your adrenals. When they get exhausted, so is your energy (blood sugar) system. There are different degrees of severity of adrenal burn-out.

When adrenals are worn down, headaches, low energy, inflammatory conditions, allergies, asthma, rashes, fatigue, insomnia and even depression are among the common symptoms that result. Since the brain uses plenty of blood sugar to function, mental, emotional and nerve-related problems are caused or aggravated by adrenal exhaustion. Because the adrenals are part of the family of your endocrine glands, and feedback to others, other gland disorders can spin-off from bad adrenals. Thyroid, ovary or testes, liver or pancreas, are among glands that will be frequently imbalanced by troubled adrenals, resulting in sex, menstrual or reproductive illnesses, metabolic and weight-affecting conditions, immune deficiencies and chronic fatigue syndrome, etc.

The problem of adrenal sluggishness or burn-out is often underlying many illnesses, and the real cause of problems that sell billions of dollars in medications and pills: pain killers, anti-inflammatories, cortisone (a hormone that should be produced by your adrenals, but can have exceptionally bad side effects when used as a drug), salves, creams, and inhalers.

Hypoglycemia can be detected in several ways. One that is most accurate, quick, cost-effective and painless comes from Applied Kinesiology, the chiropractic specialty that developed muscle-testing as a diagnostic method.

The food side of hypoglycemia is best-corrected with a balanced input of protein, carbohydrate, and oil. We recommend you read and apply the information in the book 40-30-30 Fat Burning Nutrition. It shows you exactly how to balance these food types, which foods to choose, and when to eat them, in exact amounts for your body. Overeating (or undereating!) any of these food groups can imbalance your hormones and blood sugar, and cause problems. Avoiding the substances that are listed in paragraph three of this paper is part of recovery.

Very specific food supplements for adrenal and blood sugar repair should be prescribed for you, to match the type of hypoglycemia you have. Adrenal, pancreas or liver (or maybe all three, if needed), are organs that need repair or clean-up when you've become hypoglycemic.

Hands-on chiropractic techniques specialized for "kick-starting" your blood sugar system, and re-setting the nerve communication to your adrenals and other blood sugar control organs, are needed when you want a quick recovery. These techniques move hypoglycemia treatment into high gear.

Your energy and blood sugar control system can be repaired. That's good news for you. And bad news for the makers of Tylenol, aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Prozac, and many others.

Energy and blood sugar balance is very much a bottom-line when it comes to running a happy and healthy body and mind.
