How Well Do You Know Your body?
Prevention is Key
I consistently say that the key to health is prevention. Why wait until we get sick? The question is, do you know what is happening in your body that can lead to poor health and disease?
Most people wait until their doctor’s exam to be told what their problems are. Only then do they discover that they have high blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances, and other key factors that can cause serious health problems. Lately I have been asking all my clients what their fasting blood sugar is. Besides those that are treating diabetes, not one person has any idea. This is critical, knowing your blood sugar can help you to prevent diabetes, kidney problems, and a host of other serious conditions.
- Nearly half of 45-year-olds will develop pre-diabetes at some point during their lifetime

At least 29 million Americans are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and another 86 million are pre-diabetic.
What’s hidden behind this medical smokescreen is that type 2 diabetes is completely preventable. The cure lies in a true understanding of the underlying cause (which is impaired insulin and leptin sensitivity) and implementing simple, inexpensive lifestyle adjustments that spell phenomenal benefits to your health.
