    Personally, I keep a bottle of activated charcoal capsules in my medicine cabinet at home, and I had a ten-pound jar of it at my pharmacy for years. I’ve used it for food poisoning, to reduce unpleasant digestive symptoms like gas and bloating and for dealing with the stomach flu. It has also been recommended for accelerating recovery from a hangover after a night of too much celebration, although the recent literature suggests …

    … happiness is built into us and we all have access to it, all the time, at any time. The problem is we believe that happiness is the result of an outward focus. The fact escapes us that happiness is an inner condition that involves our thoughts, feelings and biochemistry, which are obviously INSIDE us.

    Perhaps we should be thinking about and addressing the causes of pressure building stagnation and stenosis, i.e; stress and digestive system sludge. One of the most important reasons for the stagnation of circulatory fluids that cause high blood pressure in the first place involves the lymphatic vessels, the body’s waste disposal system.

  • Check Thyroid Health with the Basal Thermometer Test Thyroid Health

    If it turns out you’re suffering from hypothyroidism, and nearly 10 percent of Americans are, it’s unlikely that using iodine supplements will make much of a difference. I’m not saying that iodine is not an important mineral; iodine is important, particularly for glandular health and for the production of thyroid hormone.

  • Iron: The Fundamental Element Iron, the Fundamental Element

    Iron, though birthed in the interior stars, is perhaps the most fundamental element of life on earth. In fact, it would be difficult to find a multi-cellular organism on our little blue planet that can survive without the third most abundant of her elements (after silicon and oxygen).

    In the human body, nutritional iron is an essential component of hundreds of enzymes and proteins.

The 8 Chapters of Good Nutrition

By Ben Fuchs | Pharmacist Ben

Ok, so there really isn’t a “book” called The 8 Chapters of Good Nutrition; it’s simply a handy way to think about diet and supplementation. Nutrition as we’ve said is a vast subject matter and to make it palatable we’ve divided it into 8 (somewhat) manageable sections. 8 Chapters of Good Nutrition

I say “somewhat” because even with chunking we’re still going to have to absorb a large amount of information. While that may seem daunting, it’s actually good news, because it means that there’s lots of places where we can begin to improve the state of our nutritional status and thus ultimately our overall sense of physical well-being.

Proteins are complex molecules made up of individual building blocks called amino acids. While these individual sub-components have powerful health effects as individual molecules, there is no nutritional substance more important than those that emerge from stringing those amino acids together and forming proteins.

The word protein is derived from Latin where it refers to primary importance. There are anywhere from 50-200,000 different proteins in the body, which vary basedon their amino acid sequence, and this enormous number gives the protein structure it’s mind-boggling versatility. 75-80% of the dry weight of the body is protein and this includes enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, muscle, bone, teeth and tissue. All of the proteins of the body are custom designed for individual needs and built up from smaller building-block components called amino acids. Continue reading →
