I know I've read about the enzymes and bile salts as well as talked with a few docs about it. If I come across anything I'll be sure to forward it to you.

    Tonight for dinner we had grass feed roast, done in the nuwave with a rub and coconut oil, cauliflower, and sweet potato.
    A delicious way to get enzymes and probiotics are by eating live, cultured vegetables, like sauerkraut, kim chee, and kefir. MMM!

    Kefir is a veggie? Which reminds me, I bought some milk, so I can try the kefir granules my DIL gave me.

    $3000 for a colonoscopy? I am so glad I live in Canada... I have to get one of those every few years because of a family history of colon cancer. So far, all is good.

    I plan on being a very cool old lady. And in much better shape than I was as a young lady. I will let everybody else worry about whether or not I am beautiful. I have to hand it to my husband, he has always treated me like I was, even when I was over 200 pounds. I thought he was mildly insane, but I didn't try to get him cured... LOL! For myself, I am happy to look in the mirror and see that there has been improvement.

    Colon side note: I read an article recently about the use of colonic irrigation in place of that 'clearing out' drink usually used before a colonoscopy. Have you ever heard of/done that? Opinions?

    Nope - caught out in the pacific ocean! Farmed salmon is mushy and icky.

    Never heard of it. I have heard there is a pill option instead of drinking a gallon of artificially flavored water with nuclear powered laxatives!

    Sorry, don't know. I do know what they gave me last time was a lot easier to handle, but I forget what it was. Sorry. I don't usually retain things like that. I figure it's the doctor's job to know it...

    Oops. Sorry for the hi-jack, Tomi. I thought I was on Judg's journal.

    Blood draw this morning. One of the worst phlebotomists I have ever had stick a needle in my arm. She won't be drawing my blood ever again. I know how hard some people are to draw - I used to do phlebotomy when I was Clinical Research Coodinator, but I knew to at least feel for the vein before I stuck the needle in! I ended up with 2 sticks and blood on my jeans! Not a good experience. I doubt she will work there very long.

    Started the spit thing this morning too. I guess if something is wrong I will find out now. If nothing is wrong then I just have a retarded metabolism and will have to continue to fight to lose every pound. Right now - I'm going out for a walk. Time to get started on my daily walks/rides again!
