On this episode of the Get Healthy Alabama podcast we (Dr. George Burroughs and BetyLou Pierce) discuss the ONE health problem that may be the cause of many other health problems.
(May take a few seconds to begin playing)
Episode 21:2 - Insulin Resistance: What You Need To Know... And Why
If you enrolled in a Nutrition class, what would you expect to learn?
Facts about vitamins, minerals, protein, fat and carbohydrates?
How to heal with herbs?
What you may not expect to learn is “How the Fuel System of the body works.”
And, that’s a shame because how the body fuels itself is of vital importance.
Something you NEED to know.
Yet it’s seldom taught… even though it’s not difficult to understand.
You see, your body’s Fuel System provides fuel, or “energy”, to every cell, muscle and organ of the body so they can perform the functions for which they were designed.
HOW the Fuel System does this is as follows:
1) The food you eat provides your body with fuel.
2) The cells, muscles and organs take, and use, the fuel they need.
3) Any “excess” fuel is either stored in the liver or turned into fat.
This process works great… until something goes wrong.
And, believe it or not, something goes wrong for millions of us.
Not with the Fuel System itself, but with how much we ask of it.
We “flood it” with too much fuel… especially from starches and sugars.
As a result, we develop "Insulin Resistance"... which can lead to the development of some bad things.
Things like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s… and increased chance of dying from the Coronavirus.
(Yes, an overworked Fuel System can increase your chances of dying from the Coronavirus!)
But that’s not all.
In our opinion, many other health problems are either caused or significantly affected by an overworked Fuel System… especially those problems that aren’t responding to any type of treatment.
There is, however, some good news:
The damage done by an overworked Fuel System system can be corrected!
People CAN reverse these Fuel System problems.
Conditions can be cured!
Not by some “miracle” drug or pill but by LEARNING how the Fuel System was designed to work… and then working WITH it!
THAT’S what this episode is about… learning how the Fuel System works.
Our guess is that you’ll learn more about this topic from this episode than you ever have from a doctor.
More importantly, you’ll be inspired to make changes that will have a positive impact on your health… and on your life 🙂
