I encourage you to start topical application.

Metqa! Good luck with the house! I attended UGA a zillion years ago. Athens is a lovely place.
Go Dawgs! Right now I live right next to the stadium. If I move, I'll no longer get free play by play announcements of the games through my back window@!

Hmmm, 125.6 after a DD with the bark, generally around 124. I want this not to be true.

Oh, blah Kissa. Don't ditch it on one dd, but def keep an eye on it.

Interesting on the tinnitus/inflammation link. I had what I described as 'crickets' in my ears. It was a constant ticking/clicking sound. Dh says he has it too. I've been noticing for a while now that it is gone. (I'm the one who saw major improvement in inflammation markers after eliminating allergy foods. I had NO outward symptoms that I was allergic/sensitive to these foods).

Dh was just diagnosed with an off the chart allergy to milk, plus lesser allergies to eggs, almonds, coconut, pinto and navy beans. I have noticed he is not snoring as loudly (he's been off these foods for almost 1 week). I'll have to ask him if the clicking is any better.

Interesting about the snoring already improving. I am delighted that it is helping him. How are you getting on with the baking issues?

I will certainly give the bark a good go, I want the benefits I read about with CO.

I'm just not baking. When overwhelmed, just stick your head in the sand and ignore it. LOL

But I think the plan will be, when I bake something, I'll make it so I can have it and freeze most of it. And then for regular mealtime baking (muffins/biscuits/etc) dd or I will make it so dh and the rest of the family can have it, and I'll just defrost something of mine.

I started taking digestive enzymes a week or so ago. Not sure if they are doing anything, but I just thought it would be helpful. Maybe a little extra help for the GB stuff.

Also today I got Serrapeptase and started taking it. It's an enzyme from the silk worm, and I'm taking it to see if it helps dissolve a stupid ugly scar I have from a dermatological-type surgery about 4 years ago. The stitches inside the wound broke free and it healed really bad. Doctor had me using silicone sheets but it did Jack. I've tried "everything" over the years, and now for about a week I've been massaging the scar each day to try to break it down, and hoping this Serrapeptase helps break it down on the inside and get rid of it. I'd take even a little improvement.

Know anything about this supp? I didn't before I heard it mentioned on a forum. It's Dr.s Best brand. I am intending to take it a.m. and p.m.

Yes, I think serrapeptase is SUPER cool! I have drs best, too.

My concern, though, is, if I swallow it, how does it get to skin or scar tissue? I wonder if it's ever used topically?

I'll elaborate some other time...on evil tablet right now.

I wondered this too, and have a plan to take it internally but to also try it right on the scar too. I was thinking of using rubbing alcohol as a carrier to get it down in the scar.

The scar looks bad enough on the surface but it goes down into the skin and is thick in places under there. I used to not massage it because I was afraid it would make it stick out more, but now I think I'm at the end of the rope with it. I have tried different things including needling it to get topicals down in it. At first it will seem like it's improving but then it's right back where I started.

If I can't get it to improve on my own the only other thing I can think of is to live with it like I have some smaller keloid-type scars (but this one is larger than the others and looks worse and limits some of the clothes I can wear because it would be exposed) or go to a plastic surgeon and see if they can remove the scar tissue and start over. If I could improve it even a little on my own it would be encouraging.

I've been massaging it deeply everyday for about a week now - really getting in there with my fingertips to grasp the hard scar tissue down inside and work on it. Funny, but I started noticing yesterday that there's not as much scar tissue inside as when I started. I mean, I was grabbing thick lumps of it between my fingers before and now everything in there is softer and squishier. Too afraid to hope after 4 years, but then again I'm the type that I can't completely give up hope either.

Found this on another forum. Maybe I will try it under the tongue if it has better absorption that way.

I've been taking serrapeptase (doctor's best 40K units) for about 6 weeks now. I've found that taking it under the tongue works amazingly well for reducing inflammation and has eliminated all minor allergic reactions but not the major ones.

I empty 1 capsule every 8 hours under my tongue, and it takes about 30 minutes to disappear, or sooner if I have to talk (due to saliva release). The newer Doctor's Best caps are now smaller so they have less cellulose filler. Sometimes I fall asleep with it in my mouth, and there's been no irritation despite sitting in my mouth for hours when that happens.

I tried taking it orally (on an empty stomach), and it had some effect but sublingual was a huge improvement so I'll never take it orally again. Also it will irritate some people's stomachs. I don't know if it will irritate mouths of those whose stomachs are sensitive.

I think the CO is helping me with hair loss. I have thin, thin hair that's very dry (hypothyroid). I went through some major hair loss a few years ago then again last year. It looked like it was starting up again a couple months ago but since I upped my CO I have seen a big reduction in the amount of hair I find on the drain after my shower....like sometimes there is NONE and other times just a little. It's never more than half what I was used to seeing. And there's less in the comb after I comb it out. Now if it would just make some of it *grow* back. LOL

That is great Kathy, we all value our hair.

Nice scale visit today, 124.8 after an UD. I only had a tiny bit of the JoyBark yesterday because I had none left!

Made more last night and just started my UD with a nice piece.

My secret wish with the DE is that it helps to tighten saggy skin. There is no way to really measure this and I have been doing DE for a long time, so I don't really know if it has made any impact or not, but I am still hopeful.

I have lost mega amounts of weight over the years so my skin does not tighten up any longer in spite of dry brushing, MSM, copper, weight training, yada yada. Still have my fingers crossed that the DE is helping.

I finally have a plus to show for dirt drinking. I realized this weekend that the gray part of my hair is no longer frizzy and coarse looking but soft and is straight like the rest of my hair. I have long hair and wear it up most of the time and it always has short hair growing in that frizzes around my face and makes me look frazzled in my opinioin. No longer. AND I discovered that I need to drink my dirt at bedtime for other good results. I have been drinking it in the monring all this time. I forgot yesterday so drank it just before bedtime. Yea!!!
I was almost ready to quit the process. Also noticed this weekend that my fingernails are stronger. I am always breaking them doing outside chores and such. They are starting to get a little length and I actually had to shape them rather than just file the jagged broken edges off. Guess it takes at least a month to start seeing results.

Oh, I would love that - skin tightening! Hope DE works on that but I"m grateful for all that it has done so far.

Glad to read this!

I hadn't noticed it, but I think I have a lot fewer "frizzles" these days, too. Fondly/not so fondly referred to as a "halo" in the hair care community. Honestly, I looked like a troll doll sometimes!!! I still have short hairs/new growth, but it doesn't stick up all over the place. I thought it was because of a conditioner or different shampoo or something, but maybe it's the DE.

May I ask what the difference is in taking it at bedtime?
(If it's okay to share...if not, sorry for being nosy! )

Oh, IDK off-hand, and my son wants a turn on the computer...I'll try to look it up later.

I just get unflavored gelatin, usually from NOW Foods but there are other brands. I've heard one tbsp a day is good as a supplement for joint pain, stomach troubles, etc.

From the Livestrong website (Supplements for Loose Skin):
Quote:
Sagging skin may be addressed by consuming vitamin C. Collagen is the primary compound of skin's connective tissue and the body can create it naturally. According to the Protein Data Bank, vitamin C reacts with oxygen molecules in the body to create hydroxyproline--an amino acid that is the primary ingredient of collagen. The result is smoother, firmer skin.
I take 1/2tsp (2.25g) of Vitamin C powder a day to lower bp.

PJ- DE is supposed to make you regular and I was drinking 1 T every morning with no results. BUT taking it at night seems to be the key. For me anyway.

I kinda wouldn't mind steering the conversation back to serrapeptase.

For anyone who's not familiar, this is an enzyme produced by silkworms. It's what dissolves the cocoon so they can get out! Isn't that nifty?

It is *claimed* that this enzyme can be used by humans to dissolve/digest dead tissue in the body, and that it will not affect any living, healthy tissue; only dead cells.
So anything from mucus to scar tissue could be "digested" and GONE!

When I first heard of this stuff, I thought it was SO COOL!!! And, sort of poetic, with the getting-out-of-the-cocoon image.

But after a while, I started wondering...how the heck does it get from the stomach to problem areas? I could imagine it working topically, but was skeptical about how else it could work.
And it's not terribly cheap, AND it's supposed to be taken on an empty stomach (which I often forgot to do), so I let it fall by the wayside.

This was about 3 years ago, and IIRC, it did help with sinus congestion. Possibly also a knee problem, but it's hard to be sure. I can tell you that I have a torn meniscus which used to "go out". It would feel like a severe sprain & sort of like I had a nail through my knee; I couldn't bend or straighten it, couldn't put any weight on that leg for at least 3 days. This would happen 2 or more times a year, and sometimes once a month; sometimes because I fell, sometimes when I was exercising or dancing, sometimes when I was lying absolutely still. But it's been 18 months since it's gone out!!!

For a while, I assumed that being laid off from my job (where I was on my feet, on a stone tile floor, all day) was the reason my knee wasn't bothering me. But as 6 months went by...then 12...now 18...and I have slipped/totally wiped out on ice, wet floors, mud, etc SEVERAL times with NO knee problems, I have wondered if it was something in my diet or supplements that changed it.

A while ago my mom had surgery for the same problem, torn meniscus. I think hers ached all the time, or would sort of lock up, but she didn't have the "going out" problem I did. She said they trimmed away a little torn "flap" that was getting caught & causing the problems.

So ever since Sophie brought up serrapeptase, I've been wondering if I had a little flap too, and if maybe the enzymes nibbled away? Hoping so, anyway!

That would be great if the serrap. was nibbling away at it, PJ! I like that mental image. I've been taking it almost a week now. I started out 1 capsule per day and after a couple days went to 2 capsules per day. I hear it can take a min. of 2 weeks to see a result, so I'm going to keep it up. I plan to keep massaging the scar and take updated pics of it about every 2 weeks and compare to see if anything has changed.

I have something called Blockbuster AllClear. It contains Serrapeptase (40,000 IU). And Nattokinase (1600 FU) and a bunch of other '-ases'. Natto + Serrap is supposed to gobble dead tissue (like scars, blockages that cause varicose veins etc) even better than just one or the other alone.

I have not taken it yet. Found it on a coconut oil forum about the time I started JUDDD and decided to keep things simple by losing weight before started working on blockages (I have a lot of varicose veins and suspect cleaning out blood vessels is a good idea at my age).

Has anyone heard of tried AllClear?

All these reports of DE de-kinking grey hair are very motivating. I am gonna get me some of that!

I did not "lose" weight. I evicted it. It is gone and it ain't coming back!

JUDDD cares about calories. JUDDD does not care what you eat. Your body probably does.

After reading this thread I finally got some DE and started last week. I'm finding I'm not hungry. Is this a known side effect?

Got to be a great addition for DDs if so. Looking forward to having nails again. Mine have been dreadful for years. Also that halo - I do get that so I have great expectations.
