Free Download! Dr. Baxter Bell on Yoga for Metabolic Syndrome – Can Yoga Help Prevent Three Leading Killer Diseases


Can yoga help prevent the precursor to some of the leading chronic diseases of our time? In this free download, Dr. Baxter Bell discusses metabolic syndrome, which is the leading precursor of three of the top 7 killers of our time: heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of physiological changes, which predispose us not just for developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes, but indirectly might also increase the risk of other chronic diseases, including cancer and dementia. Metabolic syndrome is all too common: An estimated half of Americans may have metabolic syndrome, but according to doctors, as many as nine out of ten cases go undiagnosed, putting people at higher risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

What is metabolic syndrome? And can you determine if you might have it? And, most importantly, can it be reversed and can yoga help play a role in preventing the clusters of symptoms that make up metabolic syndrome?

In this free download, Dr. Baxter Bell answers these questions and discusses the four factors you can look at to determine whether or not you may have metabolic syndrome.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
You are doing a great service! I live in Mexico and your on-line events have been a terrific way for me to stay in touch with yoga colleagues and continue learning from teachers of the highest caliber.
