Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, significantly increasing risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. As obesity reaches epidemic levels in the US, this dangerous condition, also known as Syndrome X, is affecting a growing number of people. According to the American Heart Association, up to 25 percent of the US adult population is thought to suffer from metabolic syndrome. The good news is, if you have metabolic syndrome or any of the components of metabolic syndrome, you have the opportunity to make therapeutic lifestyle changes and reverse your risk of developing these serious diseases.

Discovering a Hidden Wheat Intolerance

Certified Nutritional Consultant

Kathy was 35 years old, but she felt like she was 65. She was exhausted, really exhausted.  She had been that way for close to four years.  Coming home from work and counting the minutes until the kids went to bed so she could was becoming a daily occurrence. She was even tired on weekends. She never seemed to catch up on her rest, even when she slept ten hours a night she felt like she needed more sleep.

Her husband complained that she had no interest in sex and her children were begging their mommy to play with them.

Kathy had gone to doctor after doctor explaining her condition and was tested for one thing after another, all coming up negative. But why was she feeling this way? Her once buoyant life had faded away into a drowsy prison. After months of investigation, she was finally given the diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
