Every 70 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s and unfortunately, conventional treatment options are slim. However, natural health experts feel that the right nutrients can stop the damaging inflammation that leads to mental decline and keep the brain sharp for years to come.
Q. Hello Terry, “I have been experiencing stomach upset for a while, which I recently found out was due to ulcers. My doctor recommended a prescription medication, but I would rather get to the root cause so I don’t get them again. Is there something natural you think could help?” — Kelsey B., Glendale, AZ
Q. Dear Terry, “I was recently diagnosed with a liver condition called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. I haven’t drank for over twenty years, so I was surprised to hear I had a liver issue. What can I do?” — Kyle P., Lakewood, CO

As we age, we notice our body slows down in our various activities. We don’t run as fast as we did 30 or 40 years ago. Our minds are not as sharp as they were 20 or 30 years ago. Aging should be a healthy process. It’s inevitable, but we should experience a better quality of life as we age. Of course, the digestive system can also be found to slow down over time. We may not digest as well because we do not secrete the level of enzymes as someone half our age.
We need an enzyme called protease to break down protein, amylase to break down carbohydrates and lipase to break down fats. If one or more of these enzymes are supplied in an insufficient quantity, our foods do not digest and, therefore, we have gas, indigestion, a heavy feeling after eating, foul smelling stool, and even dislike eating heavy foods such as animal proteins. Taking these enzymes will eliminate the majority of these symptoms with better digestion.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
The God of Comfort
Oftentimes when people face challenges, they seek comfort by surrounding themselves with things that are familiar. It may be work, a sport or hobby; it may be relationships; or of course, we all know about comfort food. But those things are only temporary, and they can only bring temporary comfort. True, lasting comfort is available, and it’s only found in a personal relationship with God the Father through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
According to Webster’s dictionary, comfort means to give strength and hope; to ease grief or trouble. No matter what difficulty you may be facing today, God wants to bring you comfort. Like a mother cares for her child, He longs to give you strength, hope and confidence. Make the decision to put Him first in every area of your life. Let go of those things you know are holding you back. Let Him be Lord over all! As you surrender to His grace, you will be filled with His peace and joy. You’ll be empowered to overcome every obstacle, and you will live in victory all the days of your life.
