Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health

A shocking look at the link between sugar, inflammation, and a host of preventable chronic diseases—perfect for fans of bestselling author Gary Taubes’ The Case Against Sugar—from leading nerve surgeon Dr. Richard Jacoby.


What Grain Brain did for wheat, this book by a leading peripheral nerve surgeon now does for sugar, revealing how it causes crippling nerve damage throughout the body—in our feet, organs, and brain—why sugar and carbohydrates are harmful to the body’s nerves, and how eliminating them can mitigate and even reverse the damage.

If you suffer from ailments your doctors can’t seem to diagnose or help—mysterious rashes, unpredictable digestive problems, debilitating headaches, mood and energy swings, constant tiredness—nerve compression is the likely cause. Sugar Crush exposes the shocking truth about how a diet high in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and wheat compresses and damages the peripheral nerves of the body, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet, along with a host of related conditions, including migraines, gall bladder disease, and diabetes.

Over the years, Dr. 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.

Sugar Crush includes a quiz to assess your nerve damage, practical dietary advice, and the latest thinking on ways to prevent and reverse neuropathy. If you have diabetes, this essential guide will help you understand the dangers and give you the tools you need to make a difference beyond your doctor’s prescriptions. If you have the metabolic syndrome or prediabetes, or are just concerned about your health, it will help you reverse and prevent nerve damage.

    This book was a waste of time and money, April 12, 2018

    I thought I would be getting helpful information since I have peripheral neuropathy that is not diabetic related. What I found, instead, is that sugar causes everything that is wrong in our bodies. And, Dr Jacoby is the only doctor who has the real answer. This book was a waste of time and money. It is advertised as something new and helpful, but it is just a platform for Dr. Jacoby to praise himself and push his surgery for neuropathy.

    Too sensational and single-solution, April 12, 2018

    I must have not read the 1 and 2 star reviews as thoroughly as I normally do because this is much too single solution to be a robust read. I read the first chapter, realized he was heading towards “Ketogenic Diet Is The One True Good”, read the last chapter for takeaways, and shelved it. Also to echo what others have pointed out, the message is conflicting at times, especially on dairy. Maybe if you like to read diet books for fun you could curl up with this for its dramatic writing style, but I’m sure any of the actual information in this book can be read elsewhere in a much less fear-pedaling format. My only takeaway is that, yes, I’m a good boy for avoiding processed food, but any book can tell me that same thing.

    I feel like a real sucker for buying this. Don’t be a sucker.

    This review is from: Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health (Kindle Edition)
    This is a must-read for anybody who is serious about their health. Sugar is addictive – some including the author Jacoby say as bad if not worse than cocaine. He brilliantly details the effects of sugar addiction especially as far as Type 2 Diabetes and inflammation, particularly of the nerves is concerned. In fact, sugar has a negative effect on us if we eat it, full stop! He stresses how many processed foods are full of sugar which we must consider if we are serious about knocking it out of our diets. We all know – or should know! – the foods that are sugar-laden, like soft drinks, cakes etc., but others that appear innocuous (and which are very often savoury) are also very dangerous. This book is not a medical textbook and is easy for the layman to understand. I would highly recommend it.
