Registered pharmacist, nutritionist and cosmetic chemist, Ben Fuchs shared alternative health concepts, and offered tips on supplements and healthy changes to one's diet and lifestyle. George asked him about fibromyalgia, since Lady Gaga has just announced a cancelled tour due to the ailment. Fuchs said that it is a fancy phrase for muscle fatigue caused by ineffective digestion and (in women) breaking down excess estrogen, which can be managed with a digestive enzyme supplement. Tom tweeted a question about how we can change health habits. Fuchs answered that "once you get positive feedback, it becomes less difficult." He said that he and his company basically provide a "fix of health."
John in California asked how it was possible to wean addicts off of methadone naturally. Fuchs said that the two most important aspects of this therapy are to make sure the body is relaxed (by using such methods as slow breathing) and taking massive doses of "water soluble natural supplements." Donna in Alabama was concerned about bloating due to antibiotics. Fuchs suggested a course of pro-biotics taken during the period when the antibiotics are prescribed to replace the good bacteria in the digestive tract, and added that "there is nothing more important for health than a healthy digestive system." One secret to a long life (as Fuchs declared that anyone can live to the age of 120 or more) is fasting from time to time, and concluded "the less you eat, the longer you live."
