Foreword by Mehmet Oz, co-author of YOU: ON A DIET and YOU: AN OWNER'S MANUAL.

This ground-breaking book reveals how insulin resistance is linked to heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's, overweight, childhood behavioral disorders, depression, high blood pressure, and more. It also provides information on how to get insulin under control.

While insulin is most closely associated with diabetes it is, in fact, the culprit in the diseases that are making the American population ill -- heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and Alzheimer's. Insulin is the hormone that helps the body use glucose, when insulin and glucose are out of balance glucose builds up in the blood, leading to inflammation which can cause disease in any number of the body's systems. Drawing on the latest scientific research on the role insulin plays in the systems of the body, this book presents information on nutrition and exercise that will battle increased insulin levels, reduce insulin resistance, and keep the entire body healthy and free of disease.

Nutrition and exercise are the keys to controlling insulin levels and keeping the entire body healthy and the book provides extensive information on how and what to eat to not only prevent disease and improve overall health - it explains the effect of insulin on physical and mental function and tells you what to do for a particular concern be it heart disease, brain aging, or diabetes.

"Freedom from Disease" is comprehensive, well-researched, and will give you the tools you need to effectively reduce insulin levels and maintain excellent health.
