Nexus Metabolic Health Protocol

Nexus Metabolic Health Protocol



Diet and lifestyle modifaction is the foundation of most medical guideline’s first-line intervention and should be a foundation of disease prevention and modification. 

According to the world’s greatest heart attack and stroke prevention specialists, in the book, Healthy Heart Healthy Brain, the root cause of 70% of heart attacks an most strokes is insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is associated with a very commonly missed medical diagnosis called metabolic syndrome.

Nexus Metabolic Health Protocol

The aim of the Nexus Metabolic Health Protocol is to reduce the insulin levels in the blood, reduce visceral fat mass, and reduce uric acid production in the body. Insulin plays a vital role in affecting metabolic disease and weight gain. Uric acid is an important biomarker for metabolic dysregulation. Visceral fat is the hallmark for metabolic disease. 

We chose to share this protocol publicly because want to help as many people as possible. Many of the interventions in the protocol can safely be done independently but we advise that you speak with your healthcare provider first before implementing this protocol in your life. This protocol is based on the science regarding metabolic disease and much of it was inspired by the original work of Richard Johnson, MD and his colleagues as well as Satchidananda Panda, PhD and his colleagues at the Salk Institute in San Diego, CA.
