Cascading Problems 


Improper Digestion


When you suffer from IBD, UC, Crohn’s this can lead to a whole gamut of cascading problems which is important to be on the look out for.


Cascading problems such as:


    • Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)
    • B12 Deficiency, which if it goes undiagnosed can lead to pernicious anemia
    • Inadequate Vitamin D3 levels, leaving your immune system at risk
    • Ineffective or low levels of good intestinal gut flora, putting your immune system at risk
    • Bone Density Loss, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis
    • Fatigue
    • Problems with Concentration
    • Improper Digestion
    • Leaky Gut Syndrome
    • Intestinal Permeability
    • Extra-Intestinal Symptoms of Joint Pains, Skin Rashes, Eye Problems
    • Depression and Anxiety
    • Headaches
    • And of course digestive issues of: Diarrhea, Constipation, Bloating, Gas, Cramping, Abdominal Pain, Distention, just to name of few of the many symptoms


Has your Doctor told you to be on the lookout for these Cascading Problems?


So, what can you do about these Cascading Problems?


1) By being proactive and being aware, you’ll be on the lookout for these problems before they occur


2) By being aware of these problems, you’ll be able to see the symptoms and know what they correlate to


3) By putting in place certain checks and balances, you’ll be in a position to assess these problems


4) By taking some simple steps, you’ll be able to pre-empt some of these problems


Now that you know which cascade of problems to be on the lookout for, what can you do to prevent them? Let’s get through each one, and see how to pre-empt them:


A)  Malabsorption of nutrients, causing malnutrition (often undiagnosed)


B) B12 Deficiency, which if it goes undiagnosed can lead to pernicious anemia


C) Inadequate Vitamin D3 Levels, leaving your Immune System at risk



D) Ineffective or low levels of good intestinal gut flora, putting your immune system at risk



E) Bone Density Loss, Osteopenia, or Osteoporosis


F) Fatigue, and


G) Problems with Concentration


H) Improper Digestion


Improper digestion is a result of many things: not having proper digestive enzymes, and improper food combining.


The way to resolve that is:


a)  to add some good digestive enzymes – by enabling the digestive process through the addition of especially formulated Digestive Enzymes – these particular digestive enzymes are complete, they contain all the enzymes you would need (many on the market, only contain 2 or 3 of the digestive enzymes we need)  – which plays an important role in the class of IBD related diseases, and


b) learn how to properly combine your foods


Do you suffer suffer from any of the following symptoms:


  • Indigestion?


  • Prolonged feeling of fullness ?


  • Bloating?


  • Gas?


  • Abdominal cramps?


  • Difficulty gaining weight, or losing weight? 


  • Constipation (often related to roughage and fiber)?


  • Diarrhea?


  • Undigested food in the stool?


If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then you may be suffering from weakened digestion. Continued weakened digestion may lead to:


  • malabsorption of nutrients (which could make you malnourished),


  • food allergies, intolerances and sensitivities,


  • intestinal fermentation,


  • intestinal putrefaction,


  • and intestinal hyperpermeability also known as  ”Leaky Gut” 




DigeSEB-GI for Complete Digestion

DigeSEB®-GI is a premium, all-inclusive blend of digestive enzymes formulated to optimize digestion of:

  •  dairy,
  • legumes,
  • cruciferous vegetables,
  • cereal grains,
  • proteins,
  • and other foods

DigeSEB-GI includes:

  • alpha and beta amylase,
  • invertase, maltase,
  • alpha galactosidase,
  • lipase,
  • cellulase and
  • a complete array of protease enzymes,

all of which together, are designed to enhance the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, while increasing the nutritional value of food and reducing the discomforts of incomplete digestion.



Complete Digestion

  • Breaks down proteins, fats, carbohydrates and dairy products
  • Relieves indigestion, gas & bloating
  • Enhances nutrient absorption
  • Improves overall digestive function


DigeSEB-GI is a complete and optimal digestive formula containing the following ingredients:


Enzymes How It Works
Amylase Breaks down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars; produced naturally by humans, microorganisms and plants
Proteases Hydrolyze protein such as casein, steak, gelatin, soy, fish and other plant and animal proteins into smaller chains of polypeptides (small proteins) and amino acids for easier uptake throughout the body
Lipase Breaks down fats into essential fatty acids needed for healthy tissues and cells*
Lactase Breaks down milk sugars (lactose)
Hemicellulase Breaks down carbohydrates, including fiber and other plant polysaccharides
Cellulase Breaks down carbohydrates, like fiber and other plant polysaccharides
Maltase Breaks down starch into the sugar maltose
Invertase Breaks down sucrose into the simple sugars glucose and fructose
Bromelain A collective name for the proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes found in the pineapple plant (Ananas comosus); known for its digestive properties. A good substitute for animal-based, digestive enzymes pepsin and trypsin due to its activity across a wide pH range
Serrapeptase (Peptizyme SP® Brand) Enzyme used by silkworms to dissolve their silken cocoons; A systemic enzyme which has been isolated, studied and used extensively for more than 50 years for its excellent fibrinolytic (fibrin-digesting), proteolytic (protein-digesting) and anti-inflammatory properties*
Papain Obtained from the latex of the fruit of the Papaya tree, papain has been used for centuries as an effective digestive aid*
Alpha-Galactosidase Breaks down complex carbohydrates commonly contained in legumes such as raffinose and stachyose
Amla Also known as Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis); a natural, efficacious antioxidant, and one of the richest sources of absorbable vitamin C
Papaya Powder From green papaya fruit; a natural source of papain and chymopapain, two enzymes well-known for their digestive and proteolytic (protein-digesting) properties



Since DigeSEB-GI aids in overall digestion, it is contraindicated to use the enzyme without eating. Although it is not harmful to take DigeSEB on an empty stomach, it is simply a waste of money. If you take digestive enzymes too soon before a meal, you risk the enzyme becoming inactive. The food and enzyme must be in the stomach together for proper results.

Methodology to Eating


This simple Methodology to Eating system, actually layers the basic principles of food combining (some of which were derived from Dr. William Hay’s premise he devised in the 1920’s ) with anti-inflammatory foods. This powerful two fold approach now yields an exponential beneficial effect. And it’s called:


The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide.


Click Here to get more information


The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide is simple, easy to understand, and designed to teach you how reducing the inflammation in your body will make you feel healthier, and transforming your gut into a happier one, through making intelligent food choices, and explaining how to combine different foods of different pH levels, which require different digestive enzymes,  and are also different on the Alkalinity – to – Acidity scale.


Ever heard of the famous Latin proverb: “Like likes like”?


It and Dr. Hay’s premise could be used to actualize when you eat like foods ( of like pH and that are on the same Alkalinity – to – Acidity scale, and require the same digestive enzymes) – “like likes like” –  resulting in a happier you, a healthier you ( because you no longer have acid reflux or gastric distress, painful cramping of your tummy, excessive gas build-up, distention of your abdomen, and abnormal bowel movements), thus benefiting  you with much less inflammation throughout your body.


Why? Like likes like?


Because when you adhere to the principles of “like likes like”, your digestive system isn’t fighting foods that require vastly different digestive enzymes, and vastly different digestive environments.


Per Dr. Andrew Weil,  “…It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body’s healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke) can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks…”.


Why?  Anti-Inflammatory ?
Doctors and scientists have come to prove that in fact, inflammation is the cause of most disease ( even dis-ease) – whether we’re talking about auto-immune diseases in which your immune system has gone awry  and attacks itself.  Some more well known ( among many) of these are:
1) Ulcerative Colitis – wherein your immune system attacks your  colon


2) Crohn’s Disease – wherein your immune system attacks the tract from the mouth to the anus  at various points.
3) Celiac Disease – wherein your immune system attacks


the lining of the small intestine by attacking the villi of the intestine when you eat GLUTEN


4) Multiple Sclerosis – wherein your immune system
attacks the MYELIN ( the fatty material that wraps around your nerves, and without this protective myelin, your nerves become damaged)


5) Parkinson’s – wherein your immune system attacks
brain cells that produce dopamine, hence making it a
neurodegenerative brain disorder.


6) Lupus – wherein your immune system attacks any healthy tissue or organ, instead of bacteria and viruses, this creates inflammation.


Per the NIH, in their article on Auto-Immune Diseases and Inflammation, “… the classic sign of an autoimmune disease  is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain and swelling. … but in most cases one important goal is to reduce inflammation.”

Other diseases that are not auto-immune, but are a direct result of excess inflammation:


Rheumatoid Arthritis


Heart Disease

What’s the Learning Curve?
I won’t lie to you; at first it does turn everything upside down.


BUT once you start implementing The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide, you’ll start feeling the beneficial effects within a few days.


Within a few days, you’ll be wondering where did the Acid Reflux go? Where did the stomach pains go?


Your friends will tell you ” hey, I noticed you no longer have gas…”


Is it Difficult?


No, it’s like starting an exercise program at a new gym, when you’ve never exercised a day in your life. It’s an adjustment for the first few days, but then when you start to see the results, it only pumps you up to continue your new routine.




You will be surprised how much sense it really makes as it’s based on scientific facts.


Within a few days, you’ll be happy to get rid of:


 – your lack of energy, and fatigue


 – your distended abdomen


 – your Acid Reflux


 – your stomach aches and cramps


 – your abnormal bowel movements


Personally I  believe that anyone who adopts The Anti-Inflammatory Food Combining Guide, will reap important health benefits, and overall less inflammation in your body.


Don’t be surprised if your doctor asks you why your numbers are so good? What are you doing that’s so different?
