Sugar AKA White Poison

Metaphor for Sugar and heart attack risk

Dr. Heather Wdowin NMD discusses why eating high glycemic carbohydrates, sugar and high fructose corn syrup are so bad for the body. She gives advice on how to eat in a healthy way for the body, and uses science to help convince you to stop eating yourself to death.

Heart Disease, Sugar and Diabetes

High sugar diets cause inflammation, weight gain and immune dysfunction. Diabetes is caused by insulin resistance, and diets high in sugar and carbohydrates and low in physical activity lead to insulin resistance. Don’t believe that ridiculous story that fat causes diabetes, it just isn’t physiologically the whole story. High levels of blood sugar tear through your body like broken glass causing damage to your blood vessels. Cholesterol is used like a bandage to protect your blood vessels from bursting when you don’t have enough resources to repair them. That cholesterol can break off, or cause a clot, leading to a heart attack or a stroke. Click here for what to do!

Want to determine your heart attack and stroke risk? Want to know more about your cholesterol? We run labs through Boston Heart Diagnostics to assess your risk, and treat the cause of your disease before it happens.

Convention sucks at preventing heart disease. More Americans die from heart disease than any other problem, and it is terribly managed by convention. The American Heart Association admitted that after 20 years of work, the only thing they have improved for American heart health is helping people to quit smoking. What they are doing isn’t working. High cholesterol isn’t the only reason a person has a heart attack. 50-70% of people who die every year from a heart attack have no warning. Their first symptom of heart disease was death.

Optimize your diet and lower your inflammation with a food sensitivity test.

Learn more about your genetic risk factors and what to do about them.
