On this episode of Health Gig, our guest is the renowned health and wellness industry veteran Karen Thomson, author of “The Sugar Free Revolution,” pioneering work in the field of sugar and complex carb addiction. After battling addiction issues and receiving rehabilitation services, she realized there was a need for a support system for those battling sugar dependencies. In 2013 she started the world's first inpatient sugar and carb addiction program in South Africa. Since then, she has launched Sugar Free Revolution and the Harmony Eating and Lifestyle Program, an online webinar program, and hosted The First International Low Carb High Fat Health Summit. Her philosophy teaches that sugar and carbohydrate addiction is a disease, and participants in her programs are offered guidance and support to help adjust their behaviors and improve their lives.
