Registered pharmacist and nutritionist Ben Fuchs addressed the latest in health information and news, as well as natural remedies and supplements. Speaking of diseases like Parkinson's that affect the brain, he cited how the root of such ailments can begin in the digestive system-- this is exemplified by a new study on the connection between appendix removal and Parkinson's, he noted. Fuchs considers diabetes the biggest leading cause of death, as the condition can contribute to cancer and heart disease. A blood sugar problem is behind diabetes, he continued, and eating fewer calories is a good strategy to combat it, as well as the ketogenic diet, and drinking water after a meal.
Grains, in general, contain compounds that people shouldn't be eating, he remarked, as they are "chemical defenses" for the plants to protect their seeds. But sprouting grains can release their life force and make them more nutritionally viable, he suggested. In response to a listener's question about migraines, Fuchs said that various factors such as eating specific foods, or the timing of menstrual cycles might precipitate the headaches, and supplements such as CBD, magnesium, and B vitamins can be helpful.
