  1. I think that there digestive enzymes in the multi vitamins that my naturopathic doctor prescribed for me before, not sure. I used to take Naturally Clear vitamins ( http://www.naturallyclear.com ) and I felt they helped. I can’t recall if they contained enzymes. I still use their scrub and spray on my chest and back. This is from http://www.DrWeil.com :

    Enzymes are specialized protein molecules that catalyze, or speed up, biochemical reactions. They are involved in all aspects of metabolism, growth, and development. Digestive enzymes are responsible for the digestion or breaking down of food. Supplementing with digestive enzymes may be helpful in people with digestive problems. There are many confusing mixtures of digestive enzymes. Consult with a health care provider to determine which type of enzyme preparation, if any, is best for you.

    I don’t eat milk products at all myself because they just disagree with my body in a lot of ways. I also don’t eat regular wheat flour although I do eat sprouted wheat in sprouted breads. I avoid high gluten foods in general. The green smoothies (see the sticky post at the top of the board) seem to help my skin also. I definitely feel that there’s a diet connection for me, not just with my skin but with other symptoms also (joint pains, stuffy nose, edema, etc.) Basically, I believe that a non-inflammatory type of diet is extremely helpful. There was a doctor on TV, Dr. Mark Hyman, talking about that type of diet ( http://www.drhyman.com ). Dr. Andrew Weil has written a book about a non-inflammatory type of diet (I haven’t read it though).

  2. Great. I think it’s even better than drinking juice because you’re getting the fiber also. I hope it helps.

  3. Supplementing with digestive enzymes can make a difference in your digestive health. Indigestion, heartburn, irregularity, gas, bloating, constipation, etc. are often a direct result of inadequate enzymes

    To properly digest your food, you need digestive enzymes. If you eat cooked and processed foods, you are using up your natural supply of digestive enzymes. So, as you age, digestion becomes more difficult for your body. Research proves that older people have lower quantities of natural digestive enzymes than younger people do. See the research.

    Taking digestive enzymes helps your body efficiently digest your food which can alleviate occasional digestion-related discomforts and reduce the potential for other illnesses.

  4. Probiotics are very good for the digestive tract also. I take Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s "Favorite Flora" powder.
