Background:

You probably think your sugar addiction is about lack of willpower or discipline or motivation. It is not. It is about your biochemistry. You were born with a body that responds to sugar, alcohol, and refined carbohydrates differently than other people. You are sugar sensitive. Sugar acts like a drug in your body. In fact, it affects the very same brain chemicals that morphine, heroin, and amphetamines do.

Because you have a sugar-sensitive body, you can be addicted to sugar. You can’t NOT eat it. And because you are sugar sensitive, the “high” you get from eating sugar is actually heightened.

Sugar addiction is not a joke or a fad. It is a serious problem for your health and happiness.

we seek the special potions, powders and creams that promise getting rid of wrinkles, reversing age spots and firming our sagging rear ends.

Most of these potions and pills end up draining our bank account, and leaving us feeling duped and doomed to move through aging kicking and screaming. The original “snake oil” salesman was probably promising the fountain of youth in a bottle.

SO what’s fact and what’s fiction in the world of longevity research?

Join Dr. Ritamarie and Dr. Kathleen DesMaisons as they discuss how being sugar sensitive means you have unstable blood sugar, and how it effects the way the rest of your body, especially your hormones, handles it. Sugar is a factor in many diseases since it leaches away many vitamins and minerals from your body. This sets up the ripple effect of compromising your immune system, weakening your body, and making you vulnerable to illness.
