Book Review – Managing Diabetes

by Dr Arien van der Merwe (Human & Rousseau) ISBN: 9780798169417

South African medical doctor and holistic integrative medicine practitioner, Dr Arien van der Merwe, explains the causes of diabetes and how to manage the condition in this book.

The three different types of diabetes are explained as are the physical to emotional causes. The link between insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome to diabetes is made as well as the connection with heart disease, Alzheimer’s and depression.

There are a number of lifestyle, exercise and nutritional tips and stress management techniques. The overall advice is that the mind-body connection is key, and there is hope for the management and even reversal of the condition.

An interesting read even for those who do not suffer from diabetes, as it is a holistic manual for how to live a healthy, happy life.
