"Insulin Resistance" with Dr. Robert Maki, ND


There is a growing body of research indicating that chronically elevated levels of insulin, leading to insulin resistance is at the heart of several chronic diseases afflicting our society: obesity, Type II Diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, fatty liver (NAFLD), poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), cancer, and even Alzheimer's disease. It is important to understand these are not stand alone conditions, but are all related to one dysfunctional metabolic process. We will discuss the role elevated insulin has in the development of these conditions and why a whole foods based diet is critical to improving the dysfunction. Dr. Robert Maki is a Naturopathic Doctor and a graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. Dr. Maki is also a faculty member at Hawthorn University and maintains a private practice in Southern California, which is focused on Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and other hormonal problems such as Diabetes, thyroid disorders and weight loss.
