Are you ready to live? Really live that feeling good life you desire to live? Thank you for joining me on this episode of the Feeling Good Podcast, it’s great to be alive. On this feel good day we are answering a question from Brian. Brian’s doctor recently told him his blood sugar is a little too high, and he wants to put Brian on some medications. Brian does not want to get started on medications. He knows he needs to make some lifestyle changes. Brian asks, are there any supplements that he can take, as well, instead of medications, to help control his blood sugar? Dr. Phil makes recommendations for supplements, good nutrition, and good hydration.
