We all know the bad side of excessive sugar intake but when we hear an expert say that it causes addiction the way cocaine does, we need to think twice (and probably more) before picking up the next doughnut on our way to work. On The Dr. Oz Show, sugar addiction can be beaten and put to a stop by going cold turkey.

New research findings are showing that the high consumption of food rich in carbohydrates and are acid-forming cause an overload of toxic acid in the body, leading to kidney damage, diabetes and unnecessary gain weight.

You’re constantly exhausted but you know that you’re not depressed. Is there a possibility that you’ve got adrenal fatigue? In The Dr. Oz Show, adrenal fatigue is described as the result of worn out adrenal glands that fail to push hormones. It generally manifests in women who address so many responsibilities (both at home and in the work place), ending up so exhausted and having such a hard time explaining why it’s happening. Here lies the problem: Dr. Aviva Romm (photo in this recap) explained that a lot of women on the go miss out on the nutritional impacts of…
