Has anyone here used pancreatic enzymes for continued digestive problems..I'm a celiac and was told by a doctor that make sure to use a probiotic (which I do and it helps alot), but if continued distress add pancreatic enzymes. I don't believe Dr. D has mentioned pancreatic enzymes. I follow the B diet, but don't use any gluten or cow milk.
To ensure that you are following the correct diet for your subtype
I would urge you to get your secretor status tested. Knowing your secretor status is critical when dealing with a serious health issue such as celiac.
If your digestive system is still not working properly, it's not necessarily because it is not getting enough specific enzymes. It's more likely due to lectin damage on the villi of the small intestine. From my understanding, no amount of digestive enzymes will correct this. To heal your gut start taking Ghee daily (ideally on an empty stomach) and include Larch
in your diet.
Dr. D recently posted on taking large amounts of probiotic, and what is needed along with it:
Most studies show that if the strains are not chosen correctly there will be no permanent changes to the gut from probiotic doses of any amount. As long as you keep taking the humungous CFU formulas (and paying for them) the bacteria will remain in there. Within two weeks of dc'ing these formulas, the population almost always reverts to what it was before. The idea is to use the best strains for your blood type and include the blood type optimum prebiotics as well.
