Home Cures That Work for Metabolic SyndromeThe biggest epidemic in America hasn’t come from birds, Asia, or germs. It’s caused by the food we put in our mouths, and it has already affected some 70 to 100 million American adults.

Doctors refer to the condition as metabolic syndrome. If you have it and don’t do anything about it, you’ll be on the fast track to diabetes, heart disease and a constellation of other health woes.

Metabolic syndrome is a collection of indicators including: a large waist, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol. If you have three or more of these symptoms, you have metabolic syndrome.

Most of the signs and symptoms of metabolic syndrome will correct themselves just with changes in diet.

I should know. I grew up as chubby kid, and would have stayed overweight had I not realized how contemporary American eating habits pack on the pounds and sabotage people’s health.

Metabolic syndrome results from eating too many sugars and simple carbohydrates. Look at the typical fast-food meal, with simple carbs in the bun, unhealthy fats in the fries, and sugars in the soft drinks. It all boils down to very poor nutrition. Just to get an idea of the abundance of artificial ingredients contained in fast foods, take a look at the ingredients in a Big Mac.

You can eliminate or reverse your risk of metabolic syndrome symptoms by focusing on your eating habits, taking supplements, and engaging in physical activity. I stress physical activity, not exercise. You don’t have to run a marathon. Starting with a five-minute daily walk can actually boost energy and impact a number of metabolic syndrome factors. Whatever you do, don’t give up. You are worth it! By the way, exercise is beneficial for metabolic syndrome even if you don’t lose weight. Here’s why.

Just as your body needs exercise and good fuel, similarly your spirit needs spiritual nourishment to help prevent and reverse metabolic syndrome. Amazing physical healing can happen when you improve your spiritual health.

Because metabolic syndrome is chiefly a nutritional disease, the most straightforward way to prevent or reverse it is by improving your eating habits. This may present a challenge to your willpower. But if you tackle each change a step or two at a time, you’ll find yourself on the way to better health in a few weeks. Recovery from metabolic syndrome is both possible and beneficial.

P.S. You can diagnose metabolic syndrome by the telltale sign—a potbelly—all by yourself, standing in front of a mirror. The bigger your belly, the worse off you probably are. While integrative treatment includes limiting carbs, you can actually heal quicker by using healthy fats instead of carbs for energy.  Incorporate these healthy fats into your diet to stimulate weight loss.
