Fats, Diabetes Prevention & Black Women’s Health

Fats, Diabetes Prevention & Black Women’s Health

Greetings lovelies!!!

I love reading and never really give myself much time to do it,

But I  recently made a commitment to do it more and picked up a book I’ve had for ages, while reading to research the effects of omega 3 fatty acids on brain health. 

It’s also just a few days until the first ever Black Women’s Health Day on Sunday 30th Sept 18, so every thing about the event, including our amazing expert guest speakers has been on my mind.

While reading “The Omega 3 Connection” By Dr Andrew Stoll, I remember how essential it is for black women to protect and nourish their brain with healthy fats as we are statistically very likely to develop some form of mental health challenge. 

But also he wrote:

“In medical school, I was taught that if you can understand diabetes, you will understand all of medicine because those with diabetes fall prey to many other disorders, from cardiac disease to kidney failure to stroke. Similarly, if you understand bi-polar, you will have special insight in to psychiatry because those with bipolar disorder manifest a wide variety of psychiatric symptoms.”

I immediately thought about the holistic diabetes prevention and reversal talk our expert guest speaker Abigail Morakinyp from Health In Check is giving at the Black Women’s Health day. Diabetes is still effecting black women at a high rate and it’s impact on your health can be immense and far reaching. But is diabetes prevention even possible?

A whole host of things came to mind while reading the book that I share in this video, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below
