Dr. Luther Talks About Metabolic Disease and Insulin Resistance
The creation of Symbios was inspired after experiencing disease and decrepitude in my own life and health. About six years ago, I became aware of the process of metabolic disease and insulin resistance in my own life as evidenced by higher blood pressure readings, a higher triglyceride level, a higher blood glucose (sugar) level, a lower HDL level, and an enlarging waist circumference. These are the five hallmark measurements of metabolic disease* that are abnormal in over 88% of our population.
Why We Get Sick
In his book, Why We Get Sick, Benjamin Bickman, Ph.D. (and countless other cited scientific authors) believe Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance is the root cause of all modern chronic disease like hypertension, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, kidney disease, many cancers, and types of dementia.
“We are all in this together. None of us get out alive. Let’s enjoy the time we have in this life encouraging and supporting each other to enjoy our highest quality of life, through better health.”
— STEPHEN S. LUTHER, MD
Going From Unhealthy to SymbiosFIT
Within five months of actively participating in the world’s largest fitness brand, CrossFit, and removing sugar, refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and seed oils from my diet, I not only was stronger, faster, and more powerful, but I was in the best health of my life as evidenced by my metabolic measurements. I fully experienced the process of going from unhealthy to healthy to fit. The photo shows participants working together during a SymbiosFIT fitness challenge.
