If you suffer from fatigue, depression, anxiety or brain fog but the doctors can’t find the cause, it actually may be your diet. It even may be an addiction to sugar, which has been shown to be even more addictive than cocaine.
Kathleen DesMaisons, PhD, who coined the term “sugar sensitivity,” is author of the books Potatoes Not Prozac…The Sugar Addict’s Total Recovery Program…Your Last Diet!…Little Sugar Addicts… and Your Body Speaks.
In this edition of the Bottom Line Advocator Podcast, Kathleen joins Bottom Line President Sarah Hiner to discuss how sugar has infiltrated our culture and affected our health in ways that are hidden from the doctor’s diagnosis toolkit. Her best-selling book Potatoes Not Prozac has recently been updated and rereleased.
