Peripheral nerve surgeon and author Dr. Richard Jacoby is our guest today in Episode 964 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
In recent years, sugar has rightfully been given a bad rap when it comes to the impact it makes on human health. But as much as we've already learned about what it is doing to us metabolically, it's possible we've only just scratched the surface of the negative effects it is playing. For surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby, he's seen it time and time again in treating thousands of his patients dealing with peripheral neuropathy brought on by uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. He's written a new book in 2015 about this subject entitled Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health.
Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Jacoby discuss how sugar leads to sometimes irreparable nerve damage, why complete elimination of sugar is needed to mitigate the damage that's been done, why carbohydrates cause pain in the body, the strategies he uses with patients to help them overcome sugar addiction, how a ketogenic diet can help improve the health of your nerves, and so much more! This is one fascinating conversation you don't want to miss.
