I do not agree with the original writer that hypoglycemia is toxic hunger, in the sense that hypoglycemic symptoms follows upon he absorption of toxic substances. Perhaps it is rather exactly the other way around mainly that being hypoglycemic you do not absorb sufficient anti-oxidants and hence you may become toxic. This may be a case of confusing symptoms with causes.

I have treated too many people with hypoglycemia, to go down to that path. I think it is more a case of not truly understanding the consequences of hypoglycemia, a separate disease from diabetes, but its forerunner and one that is not as yet  recognized by  conventional medicine. Marilyn Light. It cannot be treated by drugs and that's why it may not be recognized for commercial reasons.

Hypoglycemia is really pre-diabtic insulin resistance, marked by unstable blood sugar levels that can cause the over-secretion of stress hormones - such as adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones help to rebalance blood sugar levels to the brain. Being stress hormones they give us a delusion of being stressed without an external cause. 

The hypoglycemic diet, which is really a Palaeolithic  diet - the kind of diet to which our body has adapted over millions of years - is a high protein/low carbohydrate diet. This diet is the first step in the treatment of many forms of mood disorders and one that is subsequently adjusted to the individual needs of the patient.

If  hypoglycemia is a delusion of toxic stress hunger, too many of my recovered clients would be in fact delusional.
