Proteolytic Enzymes

This post will look at proteolytic enzymes and ask what they can do for us. The last post looked into a newly discovered, high cholesterol level. I didn’t ask for it but have been given a set of numbers to consider (I don’t do enough cardiovascular exercise). I think this is where I might see changes happen rather than dietary approaches. Proteolytic enzymes have the potential to help many different kinds of condition,...

Candida Overgrowth Part 2 and/or SIBO?

This is the second part of my candida cleanse collection of posts. What can we do after finding our spit sinks first thing in the morning? (please see the previous post for details on sinking spit here). I’ve entered into this protocol with a bit more vigour than in the past and am now into my 3rd month of a daily diet of pretty much no sugar, booze, yeast and/or vinegar but lots of fresh veg (mostly greens less starch) and no...
