We eat for a variety of reasons—fun, pleasure, distraction, escape, celebration…and to live. If we didn’t eat, our body wouldn’t have the energy that it needs for us to function.
The foods you ingest—carbs, proteins, and fats—get broken down through a complex process in your stomach, so those macronutrients can be utilized to fuel, rebuild, and repair your body. And, the main fuel the human body runs on is called glucose, which gets created primarily from carbs [fruits, grains, sugars, and veggies].
Glucose, aka blood sugar, requires a chaperone to get it from your digestive tract and into your cells, which is the only place it’s burned off and put to immediate use. Insulin is the accompanying hormone secreted by your pancreas that magically opens the cell doors in your body to allow that glucose in to power you throughout your days and nights. And that’s why it’s so important for the cells in your body to remain receptive to insulin, else you may find yourself headed down the path to Type II diabetes.
Your pancreas also secretes another hormone called glucagon, when and if your blood sugar falls too low, particularly if you haven’t eaten for a while. This second hormone prompts the release of emergency stores of fuel in your liver and elsewhere to be instantly converted into glucose, preventing you from getting too lightheaded or jittery.
You want and need glucose to make it to its final destination—inside your cells—so you’ve got balanced energy to thrive, as well as to allow new cells to be built, so you stay youthful and healthy. For if glucose continues to endlessly circulate in your bloodstream, your pancreas pumps out more insulin, as it attempts to usher that glucose out of your bloodstream and get it to where it’s supposed to be. If that hyper-insulin state persists, sooner or later, your cells becomes unresponsive to insulin or insulin resistant, and your pancreas begins to lose its ability to even make insulin in the first place; both of which can result in the need for prescription meds to control your blood sugar levels. Luckily, modifications to your current eating and lifestyle patterns can prevent or reverse those damaging effects, so the cells in your body once again become receptive to insulin, naturally lowering and balancing your blood sugar levels.
While you are on Your Weight Loss Discovery Journey, it’s to your waistline’s advantage to send loving, healing thoughts to your pancreas, which is located behind the lower portion of your stomach. Yes, you can love your pancreas into helping your body shed its excess pounds. Happy tapping!
Below are two different scripts. Pick the script that matches your current medical diagnosis and then say it out loud, while gently patting the area directly under your navel with the palms of both hands.
Script One: For individuals NOT medically diagnosed with prediabetes or Type II diabetes
“My pancreas is amazing, for it allows the energy in my body to stay balanced. And when my glucose levels are balanced, it makes it so much easier for my body to shed my excess pounds. I eat to fuel my body and to allow it to repair and regenerate itself, so that I can stay healthy and have a clear mind to get through my day. I sending loving, healing energy to my pancreas and thank it for all that it does for me. I ask that my pancreas continue to function normally and to secrete appropriate amounts of insulin or glucagon, when and where needed. I trust my body’s higher knowledge to always bring me back to state of equilibrium. I acknowledge that losing weight and keeping it off isn’t really about the food; it’s truly about everything that triggers me to eat in the first place. Because of that, I am open and willing to transform my relationship with myself and with food. And I am utilizing EFT tapping to make those changes lasting. I tap now, so that the cells in my body remain receptive to insulin and so that my pancreas continues to secrete the hormones necessary to keep my blood sugar regulated. I love my pancreas and allow insulin to safely and swiftly escort the glucose in my bloodstream into the cells within my body. I help myself control my blood sugar levels by tapping my way back to the more slender version of me that lies just beneath the surface of my stomach. I am grateful I am so healthy and that I have the ability to connect with my body to allow optimum healing and rejuvenation to occur. I love my pancreas. I love my pancreas. I love my pancreas. Thank you pancreas from the bottom of my heart.”
Script Two: For those who have been medically diagnosed with prediabetes or Type II diabetes
“Even though my pancreas isn’t functioning like it used to, I still have an amazing pancreas and send it love and appreciation. I know my pancreas is very powerful and that insulin plays a crucial role in maintaining my blood sugar levels. And even though I find my body in this diabetic state, I completely love and accept myself without judgment. When my blood sugar levels are balanced, weight loss becomes easy. And even if some of the cells in my body have become resistant to insulin, I use EFT tapping to safely turn those cells back on to a state of insulin receptivity. I ask the resistant parts of my pancreas that have slowed down their ability to secrete insulin to easily repair those damaged or unwilling portions. I give my pancreas permission to restore its knack for producing and releasing insulin. My body makes just the right amount of insulin, so that glucose gets ushered into my cells, fueling my body. I am eating to heal my body and bring my blood sugar levels more under control naturally. I EFT tap to ensure the nutrients I eat get burned off for fuel versus stored as excess fat. I send love and healing energy throughout my body. Bringing balance back into my body means I get to participate in my healing. And even though some part of me may not believe that I can restore my pancreas to optimal health via nutrition and EFT tapping, I still give myself permission to love my pancreas. Tapping lets any hyper-insulin state safely and swiftly return to a state of equilibrium. I am grateful I am so healthy and that I have the ability to connect with my body to allow optimum healing and rejuvenation to occur. I love my pancreas. I love my pancreas. I love my pancreas. Thank you pancreas from the bottom of my heart.”
