TITLE: “SUGAR CRUSH: Why Sugar Is Slowly Killing You, and How to Stop It ”
SPECIAL GUEST: Dr. Richard Jacoby
Most people know sugar and carbohydrates aren’t good for us – but many don’t realize exactly how bad they are, or that they are the two leading causes of our current public health crisis.
What Grain Brain did for wheat, this book by a leading peripheral nerve surgeon, Dr. Richard Jacoby, now does for sugar, revealing how it causes crippling nerve damage throughout the body—in our feet, organs, and brain—why sugar and carbohydrates are harmful to the body’s nerves, and how eliminating them can mitigate and even reverse the damage.
Sugar Crush exposes the shocking truth about how a diet high in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and wheat compresses and damages the peripheral nerves of the body, leading to a host of related conditions, including migraines, gall bladder disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and more. Dr. Jacoby then shows how to better understand the effect of sugar on your health, where hidden sugar and carbs are coming from, and how to cut these poisons out of your life. If you suffer from ailments your doctors can’t seem to diagnose or help—mysterious rashes, unpredictable digestive problems, debilitating headaches, mood and energy swings, constant tiredness—nerve compression is the likely cause.
Sugar Crush includes a quiz to assess your nerve damage, practical dietary advice, and the latest thinking on ways to prevent and reverse neuropathy. If you have any of these conditions, this essential guide will help you understand the dangers and give you the tools you need to make a difference beyond your doctor’s prescriptions
