•The mind/body/spirit connection & managing stress play a large role.
•Mitochondria (cellular batteries) are damaged, dysfunctional, and lacking in nutrients to generate ATP energy needed for health.
•Excess simple sugars bombard the cells which eventually start closing the doors to insulin
•Without needed complex sugars in the cells, lack of ATP causes cells to power down and functions diminish, symptoms appear.
•Sugar backs up in blood, becomes sticky, sticks to fats & proteins
(glycation explained on next slide).
•Fatigue, craving, discomfort, sleep challenges, premature aging and disease can follow and compound as we “power down” – have you heard of “Metabolic Syndrome X”?.
