I wrote this book when I discovered the surprising link
between eating starches and sugars and a large number of diseases
and disorders that plague those of us who eat the typical Western
This discovery grew out of a desperate quest to overcome
a massive yeast overgrowth that was threatening me with deafness.
(I tell my own story on page 76-77.) In the course of solving the
yeast problem (and saving my hearing) I found myself losing excess
weight and experiencing increased energy beyond my fondest dreams.
My efforts to discover why this was happening led me to
a wealth of medical literature on insulin resistance that is commonly
overlooked by those who practice medicine and nutritional counseling.
Between 25% and 75% of us are insulin resistant, depending

infertility in women, heart disease, high blood pressure -- and yeast
overgrowth, which causes a host of other problems.

Blood Sugar Blues
was published in October, 2001. Its first printing was sold out
before the book ever appeared in any store, so great is the hunger for this
information among people determined to be healthy. When an international
conglomerate bought the book's publisher, they took Blood Sugar
out of print. You can still buy used copies on the
web. If you want a new one, I have a few left. Just ask
about it. You might also
find it at your public library, or ask for it through Interlibrary
Loan Here's the information the librarian will want:
