Insulin Resistance

Dr. Robert Maki, ND
There is a growing body of research indicating that chronically elevated levels of insulin, leading to insulin resistance is at the heart of several chronic diseases afflicting our society: obesity, Type II Diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, fatty liver (NAFLD), poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease.  It is important to understand these are not stand alone conditions, but are all related to one dysfunctional metabolic process. Please join us on Tuesday March 19th, 2013 at 4 pm pacific / 7 pm eastern as we host Hawthorn University faculty member Dr. Robert Maki, ND for a webinar entitled "Insulin Resistance." We will discuss the role elevated insulin has in the development of these conditions and why a whole foods based diet is critical to improving the dysfunction.
