Here is the second submission to hall of legendary naturopaths. Sebastian Kneipp is most commonly known for pioneering the use of hydrotherapy. In the 18th century, Kneipp was extremely famous and revered for his success using natural remedies like pure water, fresh air, exercise, and herbs to treat thousands of people from all over the world. Additionally, he wrote many books to to share his methods and by teach millions of others about these simple ways to restore optimal health.

For many of us health conscious individuals, the search for a good alternative sweetener to sugar has led to many unfortunate dead ends. The most recent craze is undoubtedly centered on Agave. Alas, this is yet another instance of top of the line advertisement leading the public astray.
Here is the truth: Agave Syrup has up to 97% fructose–even higher than high fructose corn syrup–the evilest of all creations. Although fructose does not raise blood sugar levels, it does increase insulin resistance, which lends towards obesity and is the first stage in the development of Type II Diabetes. Unlike glucose, fructose is %100 metabolized in the liver, meaning it is immediately broken down and converted into harmful fats. Furthermore, it enters into glycolysis at a stage that is unregulated, thus inhibiting the normal control of our metabolism and appetite. If we look at the increase in obesity rates in the United States, there is a strong correlation between the advent of High Fructose Corn Syrup. Not good.
Oooh and even more exciting is the list of chemicals used to refine it. Look at these gems: Activated charcoal, resins, sulfuric and/or hydrofluoric acid, dicalite, clarimex, inulin enzymes and fructozyme. I was particularly impressed with the hydrofluoric acid, which on a recent episode of Breaking Bad, was used to dissolve a dead body, and in the process dissolved metal, tile and wood. Yum. There are those companies that do make sure to use raw, organic agave, free of pesticides, and less toxic refining process. However, even those companies committed to producing a good product; which is a minority, end up with a produce that is 50% fructose.
