I have diabetes, high blood pressure, and constipation troubles.
Do you have any recommendations?
Depending on what type of diabetes you have, the most
important thing is to regulate your blood sugar levels. This is directly impacted by your diet. Your
diet also impacts your blood pressure. Keep a bland regular diet, and avoid simple sugars and fatty,
greasy foods. Drink at least 60 ounces of room temperature water every day and start a light exercise
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help you maintain a healthy blood pressure and also regulate
your blood sugar. As for constipation, increasing your water intake will begin to help. Add more fiber to
your diet and do not drink coffee or alcohol. Walking also stimulates the digestive tract and can help.
I suggest you arrange a visit with a licensed practitioner to discuss these conditions and obtain a
specific treatment. You can locate a practitioner in your area by clicking here:
