Brushed Stones: I understand your reasoning. My doctor says you only need supplements if you don't eat fruit and greens daily.
Chate Francaise: Dr. William Wong who is a proponent of enzymes asserts that enzymes are not just for the digestion of food. Perhaps if they are dangerous for the stated reason in this video, only take them on an empty stomach for other reasons, and let your body take over when you eat food. I'd like to hear commentary on this subject please. Thank you.
rami alghadban: thank you dr for this video,and for the new information before we eat..but i want to mention too that our bodies due to mother nature are not built to consume cooked or processed food that means our bodies are made to consume enzymes with food,and these enzymes are destroyed when they get cooked..a person's life span is directly related to the exhaustion of their enzyme potential.and the use of food enzymes decreases that rate of exhaustion, and thus,results in a longer,healthier,and more vital life...Dr Howell
shaun esoteric: we've been on the planet for millions of years without supplements, obviously he's on to something we all forgot about diet ;-) . thx for the video!
SOADcari: but if I don't have a gallbladder anymore? I read a lot of taking digestive enzymes for your whole life if you don't have a gallbladder anymore. I have stomach cramps after every meal lately, especially if I eat high fat, but I have the feeling enzymes give me diarrhea... so what do I do?
newriri: can i use coconut oil instead of olive in "morning run" recipe?
BIONIK DIKK: You make a video condemning Enzymes, but yet you have another video advocating Probiotic supplements? HUH?!?!
Ricardo Concepcion: Hi John
What if one doesnt have a gallbladder? Would you recommend Digestive Enzymes then?
Pleasure1964: I have no Galbladder, and 2/3rds of my Pancreas has been surgically removed along with 2.5 feet of my Colon! what about me? Enzymes no enzymes, what say ye?
Scarlet Peoni: I'm not sure what to do now. I've had acid reflux for 3 years and at the time it started my b12 levels where extremely low (no dietry reason for them to be low, I was vegetarian and ate my own birds eggs that are roaming all day, eat wild greens, eat a lot of home grown vegetables etc) attempted to sort it out by eating salmon, cheese high in b12, taking b12 supplements but nothing got it up so had to have it injected. Tested after a month and the levels were okay. I then was rushed into hospital with suspected rupture but turned out to be a compressed spinal nerve and 'displaced pain' in the abdomen.
3 years later and my reflux is as bad as ever along with other digestive problems I've had for years since I had bowel surgery and appendix removed. I'm having my b12 checked again along with other things as having a lot of mixed symptoms. I've been prescribed proton pump inhibitors and anti anxiety medication. Obviously want to avoid taking these.
After researching I was under the impression that I may need to take digestive enzymes due to the relflux, especially if my results say that I am once again dangerously low in b12.
I've currently eliminated gluten and dairy, replaced sugar with honey, eating lots of spinach and greens, ginger, lemon water but still having problems. Walking around, stress, exercise all trigger the reflux or sometimes it seems to come on random. Not eating makes it worse, eating seems to stop the symptoms for maybe an hour but then they start again.
Would it be a bad idea to take them then in this case? even short term?
Since I had surgery 10 years ago I woke up and almost instantly had depression/chronic anxiety, panic attacks etc this got a little better when I ate raw food diet but I got sick on that also but different symptoms. I have been suicidal in the past and would belive its connected? I could write much more lol for instance made some saurkraut to try and heal and I had a histimine reaction just from touching it so now dare not eat it, had reactions to alcohol, rooibus, rosehip, hibicus ...
If you have gotten to the end of my v.long comment, thanks for reading...any thoughts anyone has I would appreciate!
hyylo: hi John. can you eat sprouts instead of leafy greens?
Ofelia Mirasol: i have gallstones,acid reflux and heartburn.is it okay to take lemon mix with olive oil?
juicing for health: i just want say ,most people the small intestines are clogged and the villi are clogged,so the enzymes cant get to do what they need to do,green juices and fruit and enzymes can help clean out the villi and up lift all the mucus gluten oil ,build up
Debbie Robichaud: This guy has no education on enzymes and is misinforming the public. He obviously has not looked at the massive amounts of peer reviewed studies on how enzymes work. You do not become dependent on enzymes. You do make less enzymes as you age due to Nrf2 messengers not activating your enzymes in your DNA. Although the information on detoxing and eating properly is correct, he is trying to make a name of himself by giving bad information on enzymes. I have patients who are extremely healthy, some vegetarian, who eat the best organic foods, who chew their foods and don't eat on the run who face digestive issues as they've aged. Anyone who has a lactose intolerance will tell you that taking the lactase enzyme helps tremendously in preventing the stomach pains they experience with their meals. The same goes for people who are autistic, as their moods improve drastically.
Alan Springfield: what about when you loose your gall bladder??
zzdfhgdhd: Apparently you don't have any patients with serious digestive issues or you don't have andy getting better.. What good are gobs of leafy greens if they come out like chewed up leafy greens... betaine HCL has been one of the most prominent supplements in gaining my health back. You can down play these supplements all you want but i'm a real person that has been really sick for over 7 years now so i have more experience in my health then you.
Nano 9: Dr. John, Thank you for you helpful videos .. I have been suffering from many problems digesting many kind of food like Lentils, beans, kidney beans ...etc. Is taking digestive enzymes pill one I want to eat one of these foods is also unhealthy?
star seed: what happens if you had your gall bladder removed? people talks about ox bile is good for those who had their gall bladder removed, what's your suggestion on ox bile?
iamravsandhu: Your ideas about digestion are great Dr. John and your presentation style really helps get the message through. Happy New Year.
HipHopcheerleader: Are canned beets effective too?
