The day I took my first dose of digestive enzymes at breakfast was the day my 24/7 diarrhea stopped and my nausea lessened for the first time in the afternoon and evening. The next day, after being diarrhea-free for 24 hours, I had my first solid bowel movement in months. It did not stop the morning nausea, but it greatly lessened the nausea for the rest of the day. They were truly the beginning of my recovery.
What are digestive enzymes? Simply put, they break down the food in your gut so your body can absorb the nutrition from it. When you have gut damage, your body often doesn’t make the enzymes necessary to digest your food. This further contributes to the vicious cycle of food intolerance, as the undigested particles are now more likely to cross the damaged barrier of your gut and cause problems. No where is this more apparent than with caseomorphin. Studies have shown it to be as behaviorally problematic, addictive, analgesic and disruptive to the system as morphine. A quick pub med search will turn up lots of articles and studies. Gluten behaves the same way in the body.
