Some Excerpts From This Ebook:
In 1980 there were no cases of adolescent diabetes in America. Today there are hundreds of thousands. And although less lethal, 40% of men over 45 today suffer from complications of low testosterone and almost 10% of women experience menstrual irregularities and infertility.
All of these disorders (and many others) have one thing in common… To varying degrees, each is caused or exacerbated by the inability of the hormone insulin to perform as it should—a condition, largely within our control, known as Insulin Resistance. And, you might have it. The odds are high, if you’re reading this today, that you do… Half of all adults in the US, China, and India do, with most other countries not far off. And, it’s not just about disease and death… It’s about quality of life.
Are you insulin resistant? Answer the questions below:
- Do you have more fat around your belly than you’d like?
- Have you been frustrated by failed attempts to lose weight with a low-fat diet?
- Do you have high blood pressure or a family history of heart disease?
- Do you have high levels of blood triglycerides?
- Do you retain water easily?

- Do you have patches of dark-colored skin?
- Do you have a family member with insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes?
- Do you or a family member have/had gestational diabetes or PCOS (women)?
- Do you constantly crave sugary or starchy foods?
If you answered “yes” to two or more of these questions, we invite you to read on to discover what you can do to find clarity and begin healing…
Exactly what is Insulin Resistance?
Insulin Resistance is defined as a reduced response to the hormone insulin. Every cell in every tissue of the body responds to insulin…
What are the diseases of Insulin Resistance?
Importantly, Insulin Resistance per se won’t kill you—no one dies from Insulin Resistance—it’s simply a vehicle that gets you there. After developing type 2 diabetes, most will ultimately die from heart disease or other cardiovascular complications, others will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, or any other number of chronic diseases…
Why is Insulin Resistance so often undiagnosed?
Insulin is almost always considered in the context of glucose, which isn’t entirely fair considering the hundreds (thousands?) of things insulin does throughout the body. Nevertheless, in a healthy body, if blood glucose is normal…
