Are you feeling the symptoms of Syndrome X?

Are you tired all the time? Do you keep gaining weight that's harder and harder to lose? Are your cholesterol and blood pressure going up? This may be the result of consuming too many processed, high-carbohydrate foods. Such foods lead to excess amounts of glucose and to insulin overload—making it difficult for your body to efficiently process the foods you eat, accelerating the aging process, and paving the way for serious disease.

Just now being understood and described in publications ranging from leading medical journals to Prevention, Syndrome X affects an estimated sixty million North Americans. But you don't have to accept Syndrome X as inevitable. Preventing it—and greatly reducing your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions—consists of three basic steps, which are outlined in this highly practical, prescriptive book. By following the valuable advice of Dr. Burt Berkson and two leading health and nutrition writers, you can decrease your insulin resistance and overcome Syndrome X now.

Burt Berkson, MD, PhD (Las Cruces, NM), is Adjunct Professor of Applied Biology at New Mexico State University. He was an associate professor of biology at Chicago State University and a professor of mycology at Rutgers. Considered one of the world's leading authorities on the use of the antioxidant alpha lipoic acid, he is President of the Integrative Medical Centers of New Mexico. Jack Challem (Beaverton, OR) is known as the Nutrition ReporterTM and is a regular columnist for Natural Health, Let's Live, and Modern Maturity magazines. Melissa Diane Smith (Tucson, AZ) is a nutritional counselor, educator, and health journalist.
