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. For those already on pharmacological medications, it's even more critical to supplement with various nutrients, he suggested, such as vitamin C-- "one of the most powerful detoxifying supplements on the planet," as well as vitamin E, and selenium. Diabetes is an American epidemic, he continued, but what's missed about it is that it begins in the digestive system, and that's why fasting and reducing caloric intake can be powerful methods that help calm and restore the body.
The idea that there is one specific nutrient for every disease state is somewhat misleading, said Fuchs, who added that "nutrients are like positions on a baseball team. No matter how good your team is...if you don't have a third baseman, you've got a hole." He also talked about why he believes cholesterol is the "most important molecule in your body" and that when people get high LDL numbers, it's a measure of lipoprotein not cholesterol, and indicates someone is under a lot of stress, and eating too much sugar.
