Insulin Resistance/Metabolic Syndrome - you probably have it!
Over on the discussion group we have where I've been posting class notes for the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine course, I've just posted a WHOLE LOT about this subject. What really surprised me is that this is so prevalent. For instance, Type 2 Diabetes increased 40% in America between 1990 and 1999.... but 80% of people with insulin resistance never become diabetic. That means, if you are reading this, you probably have insulin resistance... and that is the cause of 50% of heart disease, stroke and cancer, and most obesity. It isn't a matter of just eating too much sugar, not getting enough exercise or being sedentary... it is also stress, lack of sleep, lack of chromium, eating the wrong fats and not enough protein.
1) I wanted to put out an alert saying that everyone should probably read my last 2 (and next 5) posts on that topic: https://community.thegrownetwork.com/discussion/844249/free-huge-and-comprehensive-herbal-medicine-course#latest
2) Lets discuss some solutions here.
3) Be sure to do the Grow Network Certification on getting off of sugar
4) If you have not yet, definitely read the Weston A. Price Cookbook, "Nourishing traditions" https://archive.org/details/NourishingTraditions
Diet, Exercise, Supplements and Sleep can reverse this condition... as of now, modern medicine can do nothing more than manage it with very expensive drugs, only postponing organ failure.
