066: How sugar affects our health and immune systems with Dr. Richard Jacoby

Hi friends! I have a new podcast episode up this morning! I’m chatting with Dr. Jacoby all about sugar and how it affects our health and immune systems.

According to Dr. Jacoby, diseases and inflammation we experience can be largely attributed to the impact of sugar. I always love hearing from different medical professionals, especially those who empower us to make healthier choices. While the health struggles we face in the US are extremely complex, I always enjoy hearing various perspectives on things that could possibly help. I think it’s important to surround yourself with as many opinions and voices as possible so you can make the best decisions for your family. As always, this podcast episode doesn’t serve to replace medical advice, but I hope that you enjoy it and enjoy hearing from Dr. Jacoby.

Here’s what we chat about:

– Peripheral neuropathy and how many are affected by this condition

– How sugar causes inflammation in the body and can make us more susceptible to illness

– Tips for those who are looking to reduce their sugar intake

and so much more!

Here’s a bit more about Dr. Jacoby:

Dr. Richard Jacoby has treated thousands of patients with peripheral neuropathy. Now, he shares his insights as well as the story of how he connected the dots to determine how sugar is the common denominator of many chronic diseases. In Sugar Crush, he offers a unique holistic approach to understanding the exacting toll sugar and carbs take on the body. Based on his clinical work, he breaks down his highly effective methods, showing how dietary changes reducing sugar and wheat, coinciding with an increase of good fats, can dramatically help regenerate nerves and rehabilitate their normal function. Dr. Jacoby is one of the country’s leading peripheral nerve surgeons, specializing in progressive damage to the nerves that often results from diabetes.

He has treated thousands of patients with the condition over the years, and has successfully treated many patients who would have otherwise had to have an amputation.
