Product Description

Review

"Dr. Hyman has done it again with a lucid description of the causes of the diabesity epidemic and a powerful treatment program. The Blood Sugar Solution is a must-read for anyone anywhere on the spectrum between mild insulin resistance and full-blown Type-2 diabetes--a groundbreaking, science-based, easy-to-follow prescription. Start your journey to healing now!"—Mehmet Oz, MD

"With compassion and authority, Dr. Mark Hyman addresses the real driver of overeating, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more-insulin. Insulin imbalance, the secret killer, robs millions of a rich, joyful, happy life. If you have struggled with weight and ill health, you will find a new doorway to wellness through his solid science-based, personalized solution."—Deepak Chopra

"Rare, indeed, is the individual who combines scientific expertise, deep caring, and equally deep insights. Dr. Hyman is one of these, and in addition, as a leader in functional medicine, has a unique ability to see past the many adverse effects of a lifestyle at odds with health to the underlying causes both within and all around us. He puts all of these attributes to work for you in The Blood Sugar Solution, providing detailed guidance for both individuals, and the population, to avoid the perils of obesity and chronic disease-and get to health."—David L. Katz, MD, Director, Yale University Prevention Research Center

"Diabesity is not longer a hidden epidemic-it's visually obvious all over North America and the primary driver of ill health and out-of-control healthcare costs. Dr. Hyman once again nails the problems and provides real solutions."—Joseph Pizzorno, ND, co-author Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine

"If you want to be empowered to change your life, lose weight, and get to the bottom of chronic health problems, The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman will take you all the way there. Dr. Hyman is the best kind of doctor -educator, coach, and motivator. He presents a radically new scientific approach more powerful than any drug or surgery. Read this book and solve your struggles with weight, diabetes, and other diseases forever."—Jack Canfield, coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series

"The Blood Sugar Solution is spot on accurate. This is a blueprint for restoring the health of our nation!"—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"First, the bad news: Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes will affect half of Americans in the next few years. Drugs are not very effective at preventing the complications of diabetes, including heart disease, blindness, impotence, amputations, and kidney damage. Now, the good news: diabetes is completely preventable and even reversible for most people--today--simply by changing diet and lifestyle. In The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman shows you how."—Dean Ornish, MD

"Are you desperate to feel better but don't know where to begin? Has your doctor prescribed a quick fix pill, but no solid game plan? This is your lucky day. Dr. Mark Hyman's revolutionary work has the power to radically transform and uplift your life. He is the shining, break-out voice of a new breed of functional medicine doctors who treat root causes rather than the symptoms. Let Mark be your guide and your teacher as you create a happy, healthy body filled with sustainable energy and balance. I can't say enough about this brilliant pioneer, and once you read his book, I know you will agree."—Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Sexy Diet

"In The Blood Sugar Solution, Mark Hyman maps a road to health that will benefit anyone. Read it for yourself, your family, your friends. Give this book to the people you love."—Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence



"Dr. Mark Hyman offers life giving hope to a world plagued by diabetes. His approach to preventing and treating this terrible killer is comprehensive, evidence-based, and practical. Learn from him and you will surely lower your blood sugar-and most likely live longer and better."—James S. Gordon, MD, founder and director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine and author of Unstuck

"Dr. Hyman has taken on the most important health issue not just in the United States but around most of the world-diabesity. And, as usual, he has performed a great service, this time by providing a blueprint for attacking diabesity for individuals struggling with its complications and for the larger community, where it is a major economic as well as major health problem."—Arthur Agatston, MD, author of The South Beach Diet

"Dr. Mark Hyman makes managing your health simpler than you ever thought possible. There's no time like the present to get started. Don't wait till tomorrow! Start today!"—Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life

"In his book The Blood Sugar Solution, Dr. Mark Hyman combines the latest scientific findings and decades of experience to show how correcting physical imbalances - involving nutrition, inflammation, allergy, toxicity, metabolism and stress - can reverse prediabetes and prevent heart disease. The Blood Sugar Solution provides a radical new program to restore radiant health and well-being for millions of Americans struggling with chronic disease."—David S. Ludwig, MD, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School, and author of Ending the Food Fight

"I have either reviewed or read hundreds of nutrition and health books over the past thirty years as a professional in the field. Many of these books have touched upon the topic of blood sugar and diabetes. It is Dr. Hyman's book The Blood Sugar Solution, however, that has struck me to be the perfect balance between helping the reader to understand the revolution that is occurring in the science of blood sugar and chronic disease with the 'news to use' for the reader to successfully apply this breakthrough information in their own lives years before it becomes common knowledge. The questionnaires in this book engage the reader in a way that connects their lives to health solutions in a very unique manner."—Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB, Founder, Institute for Functional Medicine

"With our world facing multiple crises, including a dramatic rise in diabetes, The Blood Sugar Solution arrives not a minute too soon. Dr. Mark Hyman's insistence on identifying the root social causes of obesity and diabetes is a crucial step beyond many of our long-held assumptions and in the direction of real solutions. Our children deserve nothing less."—Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group

"Functional medicine pioneer Hyman... points to imbalances in seven body systems that cause life-altering chronic illness. Quizzes, shopping lists, recipes, and tips for overcoming obstacles will keep readers on track, while Hyman's memorable terminology, passion, and simplicity will keep them highly motivated."—Publishers Weekly

"Hyman's book is mindful, comprehensive and impeccably organized...An avalanche of vital information and advice from an enthusiastic wellness expert."—Kirkus Reviews

"THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION is a highly informative but, thankfully, also a very accessible book for both professionals and the laypersons... He writes with passion and a sense of urgency - and rightly so. The obesity crisis keeps growing unabatedly worldwide and the time for "small steps" may have passed."—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

I am the first to admit that I approach any wellness book with a grain (OK, a pound) of salt. There will never be a magic meal plan or pill that will make a person lose weight and feel great. Any permanent results come from hard work ' eating healthy, whole foods and getting off the couch. I was not expecting too much from The Blood Sugar Solution, but was hoping to understand more about blood sugar levels and foods that help to stabilize it. This book, however, proved to be more. It was refreshing to read a book that challenged the reader to create his or her own health through education, nutrition, exercise and balanced self-care, including stress management and having fun.

I was overwhelmed with the number of questions given to evaluate present health and there are very few people I know who would not score off the charts and start to believe they were in imminent danger of hospitalization from some of the evaluations. However, once past Part 1, the advice given was balanced, practical and encouraging. I enjoyed learning about the natural supplements available and which foods were more toxic than others as well as the section on taking action to be more aware of health dangers in places of work, learning, worship and health care. Many of the recipes included in the meal plans look fantastic (Minty Hummus ' yum) and the website has many resources and links for further education.
While a little extreme in some areas, I was pleasantly surprised by a more reasonable approach to health and wellness. I will be passing this book along.

I give this book 4 stars out of 5.

I received this book free from Hachette Book Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own

Got very tired of being referred to his website(s) and for additional money you could have more and "better" information. It really took away from the important message about balanced program and going raw diet.

I have a family member who is a diabetic. I fond only 20 pages of this book gave me information I was looking for, the rest was - for me - just filler material.

The first "bible" I used when dealing with my newly-diagnosed diabetes was "Diabetes for Dummies", which was excellent in helping me to fight the disease. Two months later, as I was beginning to slacken off in following what I had learned from that book, I was lucky to then hear about Mark Hyman's "Blood Sugar Solution", which I bought. I was newly inspired to continue following the information in both books, and four months after having been diagnosed with diabetes, I had lost forty pounds, lost eight inches in belt size, and was no longer diabetic. I still follow what I learned from both books, though less strictly, and nine months since first being diagnosed as being diabetic, I am still diabetic-free.

Have been using this guide and the Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook for 7 weeks have lost 17lbs and gained a whole new relationship with food, along with renewed health and energy. I would recommend this to anyone with any health concerns and for those who just want a healthier body and higher level of nutritious food intake. It does address a number of health issues not just high blood sugar, it is an excellent way to hit the reset button and start over with clean slate. The first couple weeks were a bit challenging but got easier each week, I have more energy and actually even deal with work stress much better. I just jumped in and got started right away before I could come up with a 100 excuses why I couldn't or it wasn't the right time (you know the drill) I did read through the book during the first two weeks and referred back many times after that. So if you want a better quality of life with a healthier body this may be program for you, it was for me I actually appreciate and enjoy food more then I ever did before.
