Has anyone tried eating fresh pineapple by itself first thing in the morning? Pineapple has great curative effects on the digestive tract, along with its natural enzymes. Also, perhaps papaya. Read about papayas and cancer online. Papaya enzymes worked pretty well for me with my lifelong stomach problems. Also, Super Digestive Enzymes at GNC contain protease, lipase and amylase (all of which was recommended by Dr. Oz).

I went through all the tests etc. Finding--my stomach was working about 15% of "normal" food transit. So I had all the discomfort, bloating, fatness, nausea etc. What worked? Unbelievably great results for me with gastric enzymes. I am taking a composite of 6 digestive enzymes:amylase, protease, lactase, lipase, cellulase, phytase and HCL betain. That way all the bases are covered-each one breaks down a different food element. I don't take them for every meal-just one or two meals that are bigger (usually not breakfast). Also, I have found that I can skip a day or just use once a day. Perhaps my body is learning how to cope better. I am 60 yrs and in excellent health except for the abdominal/stomach problems of the past. I have heard that as you get older the body makes less enzymes.

P.S. the GI doctors were useless... You would think that one of the three I went to would have suggested I try digestive enzymes!
