Metabolic syndrome is a rapidly increasing and devastating epidemic in this country. It is a disorder characterized by four classic symptoms: abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar levels. This myriad causes hyper-secretion of insulin and subsequent insulin resistance. These symptoms can lead to many serious health complications including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney failure, etc. Currently, medicine is working to treat the symptoms but not the cause of metabolic syndrome (with blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin medications). The most elementary cause of this condition is our food intake, particularly with excessive carbohydrates and sugars. Fortunately, when we understand how our bodies are reacting to food, we can be more apt to make lifelong and lasting changes for better health and vitality. Your metabolic health (how well your body converts food into energy for all the processes needed for optimal health) is the foundation to wellness. We believe in what Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine”.
