2 Strokes, A Heart Attack, and Diabetes - The Craig Williams Story
The best expert in a field is the patient. Craig Williams had a stroke a few years ago that was caused by his uncontrolled diabetes and lifestyle. He then had another stroke within 6 months. He talks about his journey and mindset to reverse diabetes and conquer through his formidable challenges. Previously easy tasks (like going to the bathroom) became challenges. Emotions ran tense. Yet he overcame them, lost 60 lbs, and became an advocate at his local hospital for those who have had strokes. Not long ago, he had a heart attack.
