I never thought I’d say this, but I’m glad I’m a (recovering) sugar junkie. I’m feeling lucky that the bane and pleasure of my existence is/was and may always be – sugar. Where it not, I would have never discovered what a crucial role it plays in well-being.
Up until this moment, I viewed sugar as my lover and nemesis, torturer and savior but never my teacher. Yet here I am learning more about myself and health than all my cumulative years of study.
The story of sugar reads like great pulp fiction. There’s intrigue and seduction, sweet lies and heart-breaking betrayal. Because the story is intricately linked to holistic health, I’ll be devoting the next few months to exploring it from variety perspectives including political, historical, biological and psychological.
