Overcoming Diabetes Type 2

Diabetes is becoming one of the biggest epidemics we've seen throughout history. In the case of type-2 diabetes, since it is a lifestyle condition, a lot can be done to prevent it and even reverse it. In this episode, we explain the science behind insulin resistance, and what can be done to change this process in terms of nutrition, stress management, exercise, and mental health.
