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. It has recently come out, he reported, that it was known more than 50 years ago that sugar was one of the main culprits of heart disease, but instead the sugar industry hid this connection and pushed the blame onto fats. We can "hack into" our sugar drive, he suggested, by eating more protein, which, like sugar, provides energy to the body, albeit in a slower mode.
One of the best strategies for anti-aging and dealing with anti-inflammatory diseases is to eat smaller portions of food, he noted. Zinc is especially important for the brain, Fuchs pointed out, and deficiencies in it have been associated with schizophrenia. Zinc lozenges are especially good for sore throats, he added. Acupuncture can be incredibly effective and it works by readjusting and redirecting the body's electrical energy system, he revealed.
