META­BOLIC syn­drome is a lead­ing cause of heart dis­ease and can­cer, the two ma­jor causes of death in western so­ci­ety, says South Perth Natur­o­pathic and Herbal Clinic natur­opath Bev­er­ley Ber­tram.

“Meta­bolic syn­drome greatly in­creases the risk of heart at­tack and stroke and if un­treated, of­ten leads to Type 2 di­a­betes,” she said.

“Risk fac­tors in­clude high blood pres­sure, di­a­betes or pre-di­a­betes, high triglyc­erides, low HDL (good choles­terol) and ab­dom­i­nal obe­sity.”

Bev­er­ley said causes in­clude lack of ex­er­cise, stress and poor diet.
