Sugar Crush – How To Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, And Reclaim Good Health – Book Review
If you are like most people, you probably know that eating sugar is not particularly good for your health – but you probably don’t have any idea just how detrimental sugar really is to your health and well-being either.
For example, did you know that:
- Each year, the average American eats 60 pounds of processed sugar?
- 40 to 50 percent of American adults will develop diabetes?
- We consume so much sugar that it is responsible for more deaths per year than the Viet Nam War, more deaths per year than alcohol, and more deaths per year than tobacco?
Whether you suffer from mysterious ailments that your doctors are having difficulty diagnosing or treating such as mysterious rashes, unpredictable digestive problems, debilitating headaches, mood and energy swings, and nerve compression – or are dealing with chronic health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, chronic pain, ALS, autism, and more – you need to read Sugar Crush – How To Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, And Reclaim Good Health by Dr. Richard D. Jacoby and Raquel Baldelomar!
Sugar Crush is an eye-opening expose on the dangers of sugar that is so provocative, that if this book does not scare you into changing your diet and taking better care of your health, I can’t imagine what will!
The title and term Sugar Crush refers to a formula that the Dr. Richard D. Jacoby – one of the country’s leading peripheral nerve surgeons, elaborates on time and time again throughout the book:
Carbohydrates (sugar) + Trauma =
Nerve Damage, Pain and Dysfunction
The authors go to great length to help you understand how sugar:
- Chemically causes inflammation that damages your nerves.
- Results in excruciating pain, often made worse by prescription drugs.
- Will inevitably kill you before your genetic timetable.
The book explains how tingling and numbness in your extremities, headaches that come out of the blue, extreme sensitivity to cold, heat or touch and muscle spasms or cramps are a few signs of early stage neuropathy. As you’ll discover, these symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg!
Sugar Crush explains everything you would want to know about the dangers of sugar, and its relationship to a shocking number of diseases. You will want to have a pen and a notebook near you as you read this book!
Fortunately, the authors indicate that for most of us, it is not too late to make lifestyle changes that can turn our lives around. Along with providing essential information on what causes inflammation and compression what we need to do to prevent it, the authors provide quizzes and tips on what to eat and what to avoid in our pursuit to better health.
Sugar Crush is the most comprehensive book that I’ve read on this topic to date and an invaluable resource for anyone fighting obesity, diabetes or pre-diabetes, or any number of chronic illnesses.
I highly recommend this book to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
