T there’s nothing I can do — it’s genetic, but is the cause of Diabetes really genetic?
Without a doubt, many of us have predispositions to developing certain diseases. But predisposition is a far cry from predetermination.
In fact, you might be surprised to learn the vast extent to which we can control the expression of genetic inclinations when it comes to so many of the chronic illnesses that are unnecessarily killing millions of people annually — including modern-day plagues like heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
The Easiest Way to Reverse Diabetes, Alzheimers & Heart Disease
A pre-eminent authority on the impact of diet & nutrition on atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s, Dr. Barnard is an adjunct associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences as well as the founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, where he leads programs advocating for preventive medicine, good nutrition, and higher ethical standards in medical and scientific research.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Barnard has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on diabetes, body weight, and chronic pain. He’s authored over 70 scientific publications as well as 17 books, including the New York Times best-sellers Power Foods for the Brain, 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart, and the USA Today best-seller Dr. Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes.
If that’s not enough, Dr. Barnard recently christened the Barnard Medical Center, a brand new, ground-breaking non-profit primary care medical practice where board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered dietitians help patients prevent and reverse serious health problems, leveraging a holistic approach that involves tackling the actual causes of illness, with extra attention on nutrition.
Chock-a-block with life-altering information, this is a profound conversation about food as medicine.
It’s about the impact and importance of self-sovereignty — prioritising personal responsibility for what we put in our mouths, how we move our bodies and advocate for change.
And it’s about the incredible power of nutrition to heal ourselves.
One of the most intelligent, articulate, tireless and well-respected voices on the subject of optimal wellness and disease prevention, so break out the notepad and enjoy this powerful fact-loaded talk from Dr Barnard.
