Special Instructions on Using Glucotor®v.2:
Glucotor®v.2 continues to be a great seller, thanks in part to editorials in alternative health newsletters recognizing its benefits. This is exciting, but one problem with a massive buying frenzy like this is that it brings in many brand new customers who are not familiar with either Jon Barron's Baseline of Health philosophy or his book, Lessons from the Miracle Doctors. In other words, people end up buying Glucotor®v.2 thinking it's like a drug or a magic bullet. But it's not. It's only a piece of the puzzle. Or as Jon Barron in Chapter 2 of his book, Lessons from the Miracle Doctors:
"The bottom line is that the same supplement used by two different people for the same condition can produce two entirely different results. What does that mean? It means that gulping down "miracle herbs" and "miracle supplements" to treat disease is like trying to hit a clay pigeon in the sky, with a 22-caliber rifle . . . while blindfolded. The odds are very much against you.
"The secret to health, the secret to all the success that the great alternative healers share, is that they look to raise every inch of a person's Personal Health Line. If you do that, if you raise the entire line, the odds are in your favor. In fact, it's almost impossible to miss."
That said, it's important to understand that Glucotor®v.2 does indeed work for a large percentage of people.
But Not for Everyone
Recently, we have heard from a few new customers who have bought Glucotor®v.2 who tell us that it didn't help, or that their blood sugar went up, or even that their blood pressure went up. How can this be?
Well first of all, some people, particularly as they get older, don't have sufficient stomach acid to quickly break down capsules. For some supplements, this is not that big of a factor (as long as the capsules eventually break down); but for Glucotor®v.2, the timing of the capsule breakdown is very important. The capsule has to break down before it enters your intestines, or the special fibers in the Glucotor®v.2 will not work properly in the small intestine, which is where carbohydrates are absorbed. In other words, it will start working too late, and you will lose much of the benefit.
That is why we recommend that if you find you are not seeing the results you are looking for from using the Glucotor®v,2, try taking it out of the capsule and mixing it in a little water and downing it quickly. You don't want to keep it in your mouth too long or it will kill your taste buds for an hour. This, of course, is not harmful, but it can make certain foods taste terrible.
Taking More Capsules
Another question that comes up is: "Will taking more capsules at one time help?" And the answer is, "Yes, sometimes it will." Some people have indeed found that taking 2 capsules about 15-20 minutes before eating and then another 2 with food has significantly improved the result.
However, there is another factor to consider here. Some of the ingredients in Glucotor ®v.2 work quickly in the small intestine, but some of the ingredients work more slowly by nutritionally supporting your body's physiological response. For example, Cinnulin, can take 30-40 days of regular use before its benefits are noticed. The Gymnema sylvestre is another example. It takes time for it to properly support your pancreas.

Working in Reverse
Which brings us to the handful of people who told us their blood sugar and blood pressure rose while using Glucotor®v.2. Well, first of all, there is nothing in Glucotor®v.2 to make blood pressure or blood sugar go up. It is a mix of special fibers that have the ability to support your body's carbohydrate metabolism. Anything is possible, but negative reactions are extremely unlikely.
Our recommendation is to start slowly and build up your dosage over a couple of weeks. Start by taking 1 capsule a day with just one meal a day. After 3-4 days, pick it up to 2 capsules a day, then 3. Ultimately, moving to 6 capsules a day (2 per each meal). See if that doesn't help.
But there may be another factor involved here - maybe not for everyone, but as our customer support people have found, at least for some of you. It seems that some people have looked at Glucotor®v.2 as a free pass to eat whatever high glycemic foods they want. In other words, with proper diet and drugs, they were able to keep their blood sugar under control. Then they bought Glucotor®v.2 and decided to see if they could drop the medication, use Glucotor®v.2 instead of their medication, and at the same time switch their diet to eat all of the worst foods they could imagine (but had denied themselves while on medication) and see if their blood sugar still stayed under control.
Amazingly, in some cases, that approach actually has worked, but in many cases, of course, it won't. Look, if all Glucotor®v.2 does is help your body's carbohydrate metabolism to the point where your doctor decides to have you reduce or even eliminate the amount of prescription medication you take, that's a huge win for you healthwise - even if you still have to carefully watch your diet. If you have a borderline blood sugar problem and Glucotor®v.2 helps your body completely normalize its carbohydrate metabolism, that's a huge win for you too. But it was not designed to be a free pass for bad behavior. So we hope that doesn't describe you.
Play by the rules when first using Glucotor®v.2. Once you get into a groove with it and it's helping you in a way you feel comfortable with, then if you want, you can try reintroducing one or two of your old favorite "naughty" foods. But, and consider your wrist slapped, under no circumstances should you use Glucotor®v.2 as an excuse to go crazy.
But you knew that, didn't you?
