Defeat your Insulin Resistance and change your life with an easy-to-follow plan and 75 recipes for a healthier you.
It’s proven that a healthy lifestyle can dramatically reduce your chances of diabetes, heart disease, and other illnesses. But where should you start? Americans are slowly becoming ill from impaired glucose metabolism that manifests itself as a debilitating illness or chronic condition. You may try to manage one problem after another—diuretics to treat blood pressure, statins to lower cholesterol, metformin and insulin to treat diabetes—without fully realizing that the root of these issues is insulin resistance, which revs up inflammation, damages the immune system, and disrupts the whole hormonal/chemical system in the body.
It’s time to feel better and get healthy by following a simple step-by-step plan to a healthy lifestyle. Rob Thompson, MD, and Dana Carpender create the ultimate dream team in your journey to wellness.
The Insulin Resistance Solution offers a step-by-step plan and 75 recipes for reversing even the most stubborn insulin resistance.
