Description

Preventable. Avoidable. Reversable...yet metabolic syndrome is on the rise. This cluster of interrelated problems (high blood pressure, belly fat, high triglycerides & blood sugar, and low HDL) significantly increases the risk for serious illness.  In this recorded session, you’ll explore non-pharmacological solutions that will help to prevent further disease complications, restore health and optimize function.  A multi-faceted and multidisciplinary care team is crucial, and you will learn simple lifestyle and nutritional changes that result in positive outcomes.
