Sugar is prevalent in much of what we consume and hidden in many of our foods. While many say it is not addictive, we are easily tempted to eat foods that provide little more than a temporary pleasure.One product of the last few decades that has been showing up in all manner of food, from fruit-flavored drinks to energy bars, from low-fat yogurt to English muffins is High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Made from corn starch, HFCS contains two basic sugars, fructose (55%) and glucose (45%). It tastes sweeter than regular sugar and is less expensive to produce, thus making it an economic decision for food manufacturers to use. And use it they do, extensively. Recently, there has been some evidence that HFCS, specifically the fructose, is absorbed into our systems differently than regular sugar, altering our metabolic-regulating hormones, causing the liver to kick out more fat into the bloodstream.

I want to start out by first stating that I am not anti-modern medicine. I have great faith in our modern medical system for most things. If I were to break a bone, or require emergency surgery, I wouldn’t want to stick strictly to herbal medicine. I believe that both systems have a right and good place in healing.
For centuries Europeans and Asians viewed disease as a dysfunction of the whole body, or a whole system. Cures were aimed at bringing the body back into balance so that it could heal itself.
Although traditional thought on disease also included superstition, ignorance of anatomy, and in some places unhealthy beliefs about hygiene, much that was useful about medicine was known and practiced.
In both East and West, disease was often cured with plants that were either proven or intuited to have an effect on a particular system in the body that was injured or unbalanced. In Europe, the “Five Humors” theory was developed. In the near east, the “Three Dosha Ayurvedic” system was the basis of medicine. In the Far East, the “Five Elements” theory was practiced.

The main issue with sweetners seems to be: sugars in our foodsbecome out of balance in relationship to other nutrient intake, rather than an occasional treat.
"Sugars" occur naturally in many foods--Fruit, milk, and grains. It is when sugars are refined and concentrated that they can create a sweetener overload. Ultimately, the goal is flavor with the least amount of negative impact on the body.
White sugar is highly refined from sugar cane or sugar beets, both nutritious foods in their original state. Processing strips them of fiber, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements, leaving a pure crystalline product, which absorbs quickly into the body causing the pancreas and adrenal glands to overload and lowering blood sugar. It also requires nutrients from the body to metabolize, taking away from the body's other needs.
