Dr-Richard-Jacoby2Dr. Richard Jacoby has treated thousands of patients with peripheral neuropathy. Now, he shares his insights as well as the story of how he connected the dots to determine how sugar is the common denominator of many chronic diseases. In Sugar Crush, he offers a unique holistic approach to understanding the exacting toll sugar and carbs take on the body. Based on his clinical work, he breaks down his highly effective methods, showing how dietary changes reducing sugar and wheat, coinciding with an increase of good fats, can dramatically help regenerate nerves and rehabilitate their normal function.

Dr. Jacoby is one of the country’s leading peripheral nerve surgeons, specializing in progressive damage to the nerves that often results from diabetes. He has treated thousands of patients with the condition over the years, and has successfully treated many patients who would have otherwise had to have an amputation.

Dr. Jacoby is one of the co-founders of the Scottsdale Healthcare Wound Management Center and is the past president of the Arizona Podiatry Association and the Association of the Extremity Nerve Surgeons. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a member of the American Podiatry Association, the Arizona Podiatry Association, and the Association of the Extremity Nerve Surgeons.

 “Taking control of your diet will do more to keep you healthy than an endless array of drugs designed to fill the pockets of robber barons. Just because you have a genetic predisposition for a disease does not make it inevitable that you’ll contract that disease.”
“Fat doesn’t make you fat; carbohydrates make you fat.”
