The Dangers of Sugar to Women Over 40 – Dr. Christiane Northrup

by You Be Healthy

Dr. Christiane Northrup I absolutely love Dr. Christiane Northrup!  She is an incredible writer, speaker and doctor (OB/GYN).  Her views on the mind/body/spirit connection to good health are empowering and inspiring.  “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” and “The Wisdom of Menopause” are just two of the fantastic books she has written.

In the video below, Dr. Northrup speaks to Jorge Cruise, author of “The Belly Fat Cure”, about the dangers of sugar to women over 40.

After 40, we can’t get away with what we did in the past as sugar intensifies the hormonal shifts that are going on in our bodies. It is time to clean up our poor eating habits ASAP!

Dr. Northrup states that the top dangers of sugar to a woman over 40 are:

1) Intensification of heart disease
2) Increased risk of cancer
3) Increased risk of hormonal imbalance

She says that all the above can be reduced dramatically by simply reducing the amount of sugar in our diets.  Simple!

Loss of bone mass is a concern in women over the age of 40 and Dr. Northrup explains that a diet high in sugar creates an acid condition in the body which is the real cause of osteoporosis.  Osteoporosis has almost nothing to do with dairy products and calcium (wow!!!).

She also says that fat doesn’t make us fat, sugar makes us fat and explains why.
