Your liver is actually the key to a healthy metabolism.The path to becoming naturally thin isn't as impossible as it may seem.

Even if you cut out sugar and carbs, you can still struggle with weight loss and high blood sugar. In Dr. Alan Christianson's book, The Metabolism Reset Diet, he provides readers the information they need to reverse damage to the liver in just four weeks. Once your liver regains its ability to manage your metabolism, you'll have fewer food cravings, steady energy levels, better digestion, and a metabolism that works optimally.

Saray Stancic, MD, discusses what lifestyle medicine is and how significant of a difference it can make in your health and well-being.Last year, Americans spent 3 trillion dollars on healthcare, with the majority of this investment for chronic conditions that can be addressed or even reversed with diet and lifestyle habits.

Through these efforts, she was able to arrest her symptoms and has lived a good life.
