Over the past forty years, little has changed in the three methods used to fight type-2 diabetes: diet, exercise, and medications. Now, Dr. Richard S. Surwit--the leader in the psychology of diabetes--adds the fourth revolutionary component: a mind-body program that lowers blood sugar levels and reduces the disease's damaging side effects, which include painful nerve damage, impotence, eye problems, kidney ailments, and heart disease.
Through compelling case studies, reflective quizzes, and a step-by-step six-week program, Dr. Surwit demonstrates how to manage the stress that leads to elevated hormone levels and higher blood sugar levels. Additionally, this plan will benefit the millions of Americans who are at risk of developing diabetes. An invaluable component to a patient's overall well-being, The Mind-Body Diabetes Revolution is a powerful ally in the fight against diabetes.
