Sugar Crush shares observations about how a diet high in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and wheat compresses and damages the peripheral nerves of the body, leading to pain and other related diseases.
Dr. Richard Jacoby shares his insights on how sugar is the common denominator of many chronic diseases. Based on his clinical work, he breaks down effective options, showing how dietary changes that reduce sugar and wheat, coinciding with an increase of good fats, can dramatically help regenerate nerves and rehabilitate their normal function.
"Sugar Crush brings laser focus to the powerfully detrimental role of sugar and carbohydrates as direct toxins, not just to the peripheral nerves, but to the body in general. This is up to date and incredibly well-researched information that helps rewrite our understanding of disease prevention."
-- David Perlmutter, MD, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Grain Brain and Brain Maker.
