Quote: On Phenols by Kelly Dorfman

Healing the system, rather than removing everything with phenols, makes a lot of sense to me...I found this on naturalsolutionsradio.

"Some parents have used diets that remove all known phenol components (such as Sara's Diet ) to take the pressure off the PST-P system. While sometimes helpful, these diets are extraordinarily difficult to implement long-term, as naturally occurring phenols are in every food with color. Except in extreme cases, a diet reducing toxic load from the most concentrated sources...appears to be the best. That is...reduce juices (or limit to pear juice) and eliminate all artificial colors and flavors.Unfortunately, no amount of intervention...can totally unburden the PST-P enzymes....That is why it is critically important to improve the efficiency of the faulty enzyme system while attempting to lessen the load. Several nutrients may help. They include Vitamin C, reduced L- glutathione and N-acetylcysteine. All of the antioxidants (including selenium and bioflavanoids) are valuable for detoxification in general."

First, I love your blog! You do all of the heavy lifting for us average Gluten-Free Moms who aren't part scientist. On your suggestion I added a multiple enzyme combination chewable called Zyme Prime (Houston Nutraceuticals) to my sons daily supplements over a year ago. I think it's one of the keys to his digestion and how well he's doing now.
Thank YOU!
