reversing diabesitypresented by Mark Hyman, MD

Something changed in American culture over the past 50 years, and the lasting effect was a population that is overweight and dealing with serious chronic health issues. Sleep apnea, depression, allergies, asthma, heart disease and diabetes rates have soared since the 1960s. In a simple term, the U.S. is suffering from a “diabesity” epidemic. Instead of approaching medicine through an acute care model of finding a symptom and prescribing a drug, more doctors are now taking a holistic view at their patients. This recorded presentation will investigate the community-based medicine method of approaching the “diabesity” epidemic.
