Metabolic Syndrome

Are There Alternative Options for Treating Metabolic Syndrome?

As recommended by the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, the first line of treatment for metabolic syndrome is lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet, weight loss, plenty of moderately strenuous exercise and no smoking.

Scientific studies have shown huge health benefits when small but positive lifestyle changes are implemented where risk factors related to metabolic syndrome exist. In fact, by implementing a natural approach in treating metabolic syndrome, some of the side effects and long term adverse effects of prescribed medications can be avoided.

Some alternative approaches in the treatment and prevention of metabolic syndrome are as follows:
