Diabetes is turning into a growing threat worldwide. Yet, diabetes is largely avoidable—naturally and without costly medications—and Natural Medicine Centre owner and author Rivkah Roth DO DNM shows how through her book, At Risk?

King City, Canada, October 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Half of the world's population is at risk of developing diabetes in the next eight to fourteen years at a huge economic and personal cost.

The good news is, diabetes is largely avoidable—naturally and without costly medications—and Natural Medicine Centre owner and author Rivkah Roth DO DNM shows how through her book, At Risk?

“…a must read if you care about your risk of diabetes and the related degenerative diseases,” wrote Torontonian Chiropractor and Naturopath, Dr. George Milne. “Insightful, instructive, inspiring!” commented Ken Vegotsky, co-author of the bestselling The All-in-One Guide to™ Natural Remedies and Supplements.

What sets At Risk? apart from many of the other books about diabetes prevention is its focus on very early risk recognition and its inclusion of many proven but often neglected underlying conditions and connections. Attempts at prevention address that one in two individuals worldwide who is at risk of developing diabetes during later life and also those already diagnosed with pre-diabetes—the last stage prior to full-blown diabetes and its complications.

Identifying patterns is an important step towards early diabetes risk recognition and avoidance. Even more crucial is to understand the impact of lifestyle and food choices. At Risk? includes easy to read descriptions of over fifty conditions allowing the reader to detect an increased risk early. Brief recommendations and workbook-like pages designed as the readers’ personal health journal complete At Risk?—Avoid Diabetes by Recognizing Early Risk.
