Continuous Glucose Monitor
A continues glucose monitor (CGM) is a helpful device for you to see how food, sleep, stress, sleep, and exercise affect your blood sugar in real time. If you have elevated blood glucose, insulin, and/or HA1c levels or suspect that you experience hyperglycemic (low blood sugar) events, your doctor may be able to write you a prescription for a CGM. If not, you can order one directly online. If you are diabetic, please contact your doctor to see if you are a good candidate for a CGM.
Fixic Freestyle Adhesive Patch 25 PCS
CGMs are attached to the back of the arm for 14 days at a time. They can be knocked off if they are hit at the wrong angle. Wearing a bandage over the CGM can help keep the device attached. These patches are waterproof and stay attached for the whole 14 days.
Ten Percent Happier App
There are lots of ways to bring mindfulness into your day. One of my favorites is to listen to a guided meditation for 10-15 minutes in the morning. I personally use the Ten Percent Happier App. Here is a two-week free trial.
It feels great to take a sauna. Saunas also have a lot of health benefits ranging from educing overall mortality, cardiovascular events, and dementia to improving rheumatic diseases (fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, …), chronic fatigue, pain, immune health, stress resilience, and exercise performance. Saunas also support our natural detoxification through sweat. When sauna at night I tend to get a great night’s sleep. When I use it in the morning I start the day more relaxed and centered.
