What is Syndrome X? It’s a resistance to insulin–the hormone needed to burn food for energy–combined with high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure, or too much body fat. Syndrome X ages you prematurely and significantly increases your risk of heart disease, hypertension, obesity, eye disease, nervous system disorders, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and other age-related diseases.

Syndrome X is the first book to tell you how to fight the epidemic disorder that is derailing the health of nearly a third of North Americans. It outlines a complete three-step program–including easy-to-follow diets, light physical activity, and readily available vitamins and nutritional supplements–that will safeguard you against developing Syndrome X or reverse it if you already have it.
