Referring to Dr. Wongs "systemic Enzyme use for Chronic Conditions", can Apple Cider Vinegar parallel some of his products benefits? Brags is certainly cheaper !! (I'm needing to do some weight training, but don't want to stop exercise because possible inflamation issues) I'm 64 with no serious issues yet and want to stay healthy for another 50 years! Thanks, Linda

Dear Linda: Certainly Dr. Wong's Enzymatic therapy is good, as it contains protease, serrapeptase, papain, bromelain, amylase, lipase, rutin and amla. But this doesn't mean you should not by Apple Cider Vinegar or for that matter, I in fact used simple vinegar!

For general health apple cider vinegar would be more than enough. If you want the exotic protein enzymes, you can get them from the fruit section of the supermarket many of these. for example, papain comes from papaya. Bromelain comes from the stem sections of the pineapple. For rutin, you can get more then you need from bee pollen. And if you are not sure you are missing an enyzyme here and there, then just eat partially cooked liver. I prefer chicken liver, buty pork and beef livers are o.k. too. And how about those other protein digesting enzymes? Well most meat tenderizers are in fact protein enzymes, as much as health gurus are afraid to admit, simple citric acid, malic acid, and other fruit acids also kills the pathogens too. The funny thing is my mother use citric acid to drain her clogged pipes. So simple foods we can never underestimate their powers. In fact, if the microbes should one day come knocking at the door, for me anyway, a simple zinc acetate supplements does work. If that doesn't work, then I take baking soda or a more powerful potassium carbonate. It seems that simple things work better then the more complicated ones, but if you are into marketing, more complicated ones are more profitable as there is less competition.
