So, about enzymes. . . I've been back reading at enzymestuff.com because I'd forgotten the things I learned there (I feel like there is so much info to absorb with this leaky gut/allergy stuff!), and I had a couple of questions for your gurus. Currently, dd is taking all the right probiotics and we're doing elimination (dairy, soy and wheat), but other than some Candidase I bought early on, I haven't addressed the enzyme issue as seriously as I should have.
First, the Candidase was so bitter, I've had trouble getting dd (1) to ingest it. What can I do?
Also, it seems that the protease enzyme is the best for leaky gut to clear out the "junk" (as she says) and let things heal. What brand should I be looking for and how do I get my baby to take it?
Do the chewable papaya enzymes do any good? I just bought some today out of desperation. They contain sugar, so I don't know if the good effects will outweigh the bad.
Thank you, ladies! If it wasn't for you and everyone on these boards, I would be literally pulling my hair out. It's the *hardest* thing to do, knowing that your child is sick, for lack of a better word. I'm so glad there is something I can actually be doing about it.
ETA: I just checked my bottles and I have Digest Gold by Enzymedica. I'm assuming that will work for proteases.
