This is of course completely

Oak Street Health & Herbs
By Mari An Willis
Blood sugar disorders are
nothing to fool around with. A blood sugar
imbalance is not always easy to recognize, but a
simple blood test can help you determine if your
are having a problem. If so, treat it!
Some supplements which may be
helpful in normalizing blood sugar levels
Chronium..to help the
body respond to insulin
Fiber supplements such
as psyllium or bran (with lots of water)
Vitamin B complex to
help regulate carbohydrate metabolism
It has also been noted
that many diabetics are low in magnesium
Herbal supplements which have
been helpful for hypoglycemia may include:
Spirulina between meals
to keep sugar stabilized
Gymnema sylvestre has
been proven effective for improving sugar control
Siberian Ginseng to
strengthen the adrenal glands
Pancreatic enzymesa are
available in capsule form and many of my
customers swear by them. To watch sugar, alcohol
and fruit juice intake along with other dietary
considerations and exercise you may eliminate a
potentially serious problem.
Art Notes from Hyde House
By Sally Armstrong, Director of artCentral
In the past three days, 50
member-artists of artCentral have brought in one
or two of their best works for the annual
Membership Show scheduled to open June 20th, and
what a great show it is going to be! I have some
beautiful traditional paintings from some of our
great long-time members, some very interesting
things from some of our new artists, and some
great different media to show this year,
including metal sculpture, print design gouaches,
sequential illustration, fiber art, and jewelry.
Additionally we will be showing ceramics,
sculpture, various mixed media works, weaving and
photography. It promises to be a most interesting
line-up of varied things, and I hope you will
take advantage of this opportunity right here in
our community to see this exhibition. The Opening
night for the artists, our members, and all of
their guests, is a barbeque and potluck supper,
and all are invited to attend and eat with us on
the beautiful grounds. Meat, bread and drinks are
provided. Our board president Don Knost will
again serve as grillmaster, and other board
members will be on hand to assist. We will have
tents pitched in case of rain, so it is a rain or
shine happening! The award winners will be
announced, and the prizes this year include a
first, second and third award, each carrying a
cash prize, and the annual Underwriters
Award, chosen by Beth Simmons representing the
underwriter of the show, McCune Brooks Regional
Hospital. We thank McCune Brooks for once again
undertaking this show and supporting artCentral
in this generous way. This show will continue
until July 6th Thursday through Sundays from noon
to 5:00 daily. We hope to see everyone!
