Doctor Leonid Altshuler, a U.S. board-certified psychiatrist, went through years of misdiagnosis and suffering from high blood pressure, digestion problems, anxiety and insomnia, before he discovered an innate connection between diet, insulin resistance and physical and mental illnesses.
Having absolutely normal weight and normal blood sugar does not always mean that person does not have insulin resistance.
70 million Americans are affected by insulin resistance.
In fact, more than 40% of people older than 50 years have a high risk of developing insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a major risk factor leading to heart attacks, diabetes, hypertension, cancer and dementia.
Dietary habits are a leading cause of insulin resistance. Dr. Altshuler has developed a diet he has been successfully using in his treatment of many of his patients. His diet consists of two parts.
The first part is designed to normalize the body’s response to the hormone insulin, to get rid of insulin resistance.
The second part is designed by the patients themselves and is based on personal preferences. It is designed to keep their symptoms away.
The Sliding Scale diet is specifically designed to reduce relapse. By following the diet you will be able to maintain the benefits described.
This diet can be adapted for vegetarians, vegans and all meat eaters. If you want a fast and effective way to improve your mental and physical health this book is for you.
