But it’s not just food. Inflammation can be caused by what’s in your home (chemicals and mold) and your yard (pesticides, pollutants, and toxins), prescription drugs, too little or too much exercise, stress, carrying excess weight on your body, and lack of the right kind of sleep or even enough sunlight.
When your body is exposed to any one of these sources, the result is inflammation. It’s like a fire burning within you that disrupts many aspects of your health, from your kidneys to your nervous system to your thyroid and more. Your immune system remains off balance and you can develop the worst nagging diabetes symptoms: insulin problems, pain, fatigue, numbness, and fever.
The solution to combat painful inflammation is in The Diabetes Cure. Dr. Alexa Fleckenstein lays out the easy plan she developed to cool off her own chronic inflammation and reverse her own diabetes diagnosis, as well as that of her patients.
