Insulin resistance is the root cause of why we get sick. Dr Ben Bikman explains in his book “WHY WE GET SICK” how chronic diseases can all be improved by increasing insulin sensitivity, and lowering carbohydrates in the diet. Keeping blood sugar stable/lower will improve health overall and therefore helps any other chronic health issue or symptom of poor health.
Dr Ben Bikman is a leader in the world of diabetes research and fat metabolism. He understands the energy pathways for health and performance better than most and his book is an absolute gold mine of information on how to lower inflammation and improve your health. Everything including fertility, skin issues, cancer, and heart disease is covered in his book.

Amazon Preview of “Why We Get Sick” authored by Ben Bikman.
“A scientist reveals the groundbreaking evidence linking many major diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease, to a common root cause—insulin resistance—and shares an easy, effective plan to reverse and prevent it.
We are sick. Around the world, we struggle with diseases that were once considered rare. Cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes affect millions each year; many people are also struggling with hypertension, weight gain, fatty liver, dementia, low testosterone, menstrual irregularities and infertility, and more. We treat the symptoms, not realizing that all of these diseases and disorders have something in common.
Each of them is caused or made worse by a condition known as insulin resistance. And you might have it. Odds are you do—over half of all adults in the United States are insulin resistant, with most other countries either worse or not far behind.
In Why We Get Sick, internationally renowned scientist and pathophysiology professor Benjamin Bikman explores why insulin resistance has become so prevalent and why it matters. Unless we recognize it and take steps to reverse the trend, major chronic diseases will be even more widespread. But reversing insulin resistance is possible, and Bikman offers an evidence-based plan to stop and prevent it, with helpful food lists, meal suggestions, easy exercise principles, and more. Full of surprising research and practical advice, Why We Get Sick will help you to take control of your health.”
