For 30 years, Joan Mathews Larson, PhD has been treating addiction, anxiety and depression with natural supplements in order to correct the underlying biochemical problems which cause these conditions.
In this video clip, she notes that hypoglycemia, that is low blood sugar were severe fluctuations in blood sugar, can predispose a person to depression and what only appears to be deep rooted emotional and psychological disorders.
She also notes that nearly all alcoholics have hypoglycemia.
An important lesson from this and the many other common causes of anxiety and depression that she talks about is, if hypoglycemia is causing depression, drugs like Prozac cannot possibly solve the problem.
The only way to solve its is to control blood sugar by restricting easily absorbed carbohydrates.
“Early on, when we started treating hypoglycemia, mainly because of Bill W. [ Bill Wilson, cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous ] raving in his communication to AA [ Alcoholics Anonymous ] physicians [ that is, doctors who treat alcoholics ] that almost all alcoholics were hypoglycemic.
“We tested and tested, and he was right.”
Dr. Larson is the author of “7 Weeks to Sobriety”, “Depression Free”, and “7 Weeks to Emotional Healing”.
