ugar is in the news a lot these day and it’s clear that the consumption of sugar is one of the biggest global health concerns today. What most don’t understand, however, is how a diet full of sugar and carbohydrates can be linked to severe, life-threatening diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, MS, and cancer. Dr. Jacoby’s goal is to correct this. In SUGAR CRUSH, Dr. Jacoby puts forth the groundbreaking argument that Carbohydrates (sugar) + Trauma = Nerve Damage, Pain, and Dysfunction. This is the sugar crush, and it happens when too much sugar in the blood triggers nerve compression, causing chronic inflammation in the nerves. Inflamed and damaged nerves cause reduced blood flow and the disruption of important messaging between the brain and organs. Simply put, damaged nerves cause damage to the organs they connect, meaning sugar is the potential root cause of a wide host of diseases

Dorothy Mullen is the founder of the Suppers Programs -- a network of nearly free-to-users programs in New Jersey that serves people who want to cook together, eat together and prevent, manage or reverse chronic illness through lifestyle changes. She is also a leader in the community gardening movement. The Suppers model slashes through tired assumptions and conventional wisdom about how to get healthy and prizes personal experimentation with food, exercise and behavioral change. Her conviction that “healing is a social experience” led to a program design where people gather and try different styles of eating – vegan, Paleo, macrobiotic, low carb, etc. In the safe and friendly settings of private homes and small public venues, people learn which foods make them feel stable, happy, and healthy. She has trained 50 volunteer facilitators – mostly women – who understand how crucial home food preparation is for health and wellbeing. Dorothy has a Masters degree in addictions counseling from the College of New Jersey. In her private practice she uses addiction models to help people turn around entrenched eating behaviors that have placed them at risk for chronic health problems and addiction.
