On Sunday I went to a rawfoods potluck in San Francisco that featured Viktoras Kulvinskas who wrote Survival into the 21st Century. He was Ann Wigmore's researcher at the Hippocrates Institute. What I got out of his talk loud and clear was ENZYMES. He also mentioned non-mucoid forming food and of course, live food. He said you need food with excessive enzymes to counteract the food that you digest with insufficient enzymes. He mentioned both types of diabetes (type I taking longer to alleviate) and also cancer. He maintains that people with cancer have exhausted pancreatic enzymes and that their mutated cancer cells are functioning as "protein dumps". He mentioned juvenile diabetes taking a few weeks to alleviate and type II less than that.
So I am stewing about enzymes. I had read a book about this some time ago--think it was by Humbarto Santillo (a natural hygienist) and another book by someone else. Viktoras has a new book out called The Lover's Diet which can be ordered from him. He mentioned newly sprouted wheat, blue green algae by Celltech and Nutrex Hawaiian Pacific products (spirulina?). These were recommended because of their drying processes. I have seen some info. on Inflazyme Forte enzymes by American Biologics, Wobe-mugo stuff and Ness products.
There were threads on the intestinal health list I get about blue green algae having neurological effects like a drug, so I don't know about that. I will probably get a bottle of Nutrex spirulina and try that, because it was on sale!
I already understood the non-mucoid bit. I was re-reading Robert Gray's Colon Health Handbook recently. So much to think about!! Mary J.
That should not be a problem. I agree with her doc that said she was putting calcium where it should not be and taking it from where it should be.
This is a well known pathological process that is related to dysautonomia and the stored FOF process. If she is not doing a skilled relaxation technique at least 20 minutes twice a day, this would be a good place to start.
Next, she could read Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer" by Dr Pelletier, to better understand what is going on.

Could you elaborate on "dyspautonomia" and "FOF"? What are they? How do they related to calcium being taken away from where they belong and going where they don't belong?

I just did a search on dysautonomia to see what you had written on it. If you haven't, maybe you could put an article on it on your main board. I know where this lives! I once wrote my doctor a letter that I thought I could have autonomic insufficiency because I didn't sweat and my autonomic breathing stopped one night! I could have edema in parts of my body to an extent where I am defluidized in other parts (most fluid situations are mixed I understand). When I have my period I get pressure in my intestinal region and head. I have sent my various doctors all sorts of stuff which they have just filed away and never connected together. I figure my medical file is one step up from the round file!
On the Peter D'Adamo site he just mentioned that an N.D. working with him named Greg Kelly finds that bromelain baked in wheat bread helps the gluten to be able to be digested. I did some research on enzymes on Andrew Weil's site, and he said that enzymes like SOD are just digested like any protein and do no good. Phytoenzymes that work like digestive enzymes are another thing though, right? He thought that those enzymes which are broken down by digestion might help if they were injected. At any rate, I think that enzyme therapy if it is able to be done effectively, might be able to alleviate dysautonomia. I'm taking a physical approach to the problem. Others on the board take a mental or spiritual approach. I'm thinking that enzymes could "boot up" a juvenile diabetics body. I wonder if juvenile diabetes is dysautonomic? Mary J.

ALL metabolic balance of everything in the body (mineral deposition too) is governed by the balance of glandular function. Since our system was designed to run from or actually physically fight any stressor, the readiness was gone in a few minutes or hours. Today, few stressors can be successfully, physically fought or fled from. Because of that, we live in a state of constant readiness which wears out our ability to cope normally with our glands or immunity: dysautonomia.
FOF (Fight or flight). If you need to understand this at a deeper level, there is no better resource than reading "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer" by Dr Pelletier--other than, perhaps becoming a student of Hans Selye, MD's writings for the past 50 years.
I hope that answers your questions.
