"Fighting Exercise Induced Inflammation, Cortisol Increase and Catabolism"
What thing inherent to hard training in either conditioning or a sports skill can slow down your progress, cause loss of muscle mass, increase in body fat, decrease your level of testosterone and increase your estrogen? Answer: Inflammation.

"Cystitis Patients Needn't Cry"
Up to recent years there was no hope of recovery for the pain and incapacitation of Interstitial Cystitis (IC). For those not familiar with IC it’s almost exclusively a woman’s disease. It starts with a bladder infection which in and of itself is dreadfully painful. The infection may become “sub clinical” in other words you think it’s gone but it has really just been weakened but is still hanging around. The infection can travel to the kidneys, it can burrow deep into the lining of the bladder eating away at the deep tissues. The low level infection causes inflammation which itself creates fibrosis. Inflammation is the reason for 95% of all pain.

"New Hope For COPD and Pulmonary Fibrosis"
Likely one of the worst feelings one can have is the inability to breathe in fully. The feeling of lack of a full breath, of not being able to pull in enough air, of only being able to pull the air down to “here”, seems like a form of strangulation. As a childhood asthmatic I’m familiar with the feeling. Having had the bouts of bronchitis and pneumonia I’ve experienced in my life I can relate somewhat to the many COPD patients I’ve helped to rehab.

"Tearing Down The Road Signs on the Way To Heart Disease"
All of the health food faddists who have been soooo intent these past 8 years with lowering C reactive Protein and Homocystine levels with B-12, Folic Acid and Tri Methyl Glycine: It does not make a dimes worth of difference to heart disease!!! Who says? A Scandinavian study just published in the New England Journal of Medicine. (12 March 2006). Yes this is an allopathic journal, and most allopathic journals hate natural treatments and publish bogus studies such as the one a few months ago that said that Vit. E did nothing to help fight heart disease. Not at the doses they were using it doesn't but try boosting the dose x4 and see what happens. But I’m getting off the subject. As I pointed out, it is a Scandinavian study. Why is that important? Because usually those folks call it the way it is and are not beholding to drug companies creating self-fulfilling studies to falsely validate dangerous drugs or falsely knock down valuable natural cures.

"What Are Systemic Enzymes and What Do They Do?"
The word “systemic” means body wide. Systemic enzymes are those that operate not just for digestion but throughout your body in every system and organ. But let’s take first things first, what is an enzyme? An enzyme is a biocatalyst - something that makes something else work or work faster. Chemical reactions are generally slow things, enzymes speed them up. Without enzymes the chemical reactions that make up our life would be too slow for life as we know it. (As slow as sap running down a tree in winter). For life to manifest as we know it, enzymes are essential to speed up the reactions. We have roughly some 3000 enzymes in our bodies and that results in over 7000 enzymic reactions. Most of these enzymes are derived or created from what we think of as the protein digesting enzymes. But while digestion is an important part of what enzymes do, it's almost the absolute last function.

"Finding Your Enzyme Activation Dose"
When Vitalzym “kicks in”’ there will be no doubt in your mind that it is working!  An activation dose is the amount of enzymes you need to begin to feel a benefit from the product.  The recommended dosage given on the label is meant as a maintenance dose for those with out any complaints.  Consumers with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Arthritis, Auto Immune Conditions, Fibrosis complaints and Inflammation symptoms need to find the dose at which they begin to feel better.  They can then maintain that dose or after 3 months try to reduce the dose and see if the benefits are still felt.

"The ABC’s of Understanding Enzyme Blends"
In the world of alternative medicine there is a fast emerging sector of supplements that falls under the heading of enzyme therapy. Among the various therapies you will see that there is one in particular called “systemic oral enzyme therapy.” This differs from digestive enzyme therapy because it is taken without food and is meant to work on the body.

"Feed Your Head! Maintaining Brain Size and Function As We Age"
Look at an MRI of an Alzheimers patient’s brain and what will you see? You'll see a shrunken mass looking something like an over-cooked baked potato; dry looking with fissures and cracks, not at all like the image of the big juicy brain we know with it's swirls and convolutions. What happened? How did it get that way? Is there any way to avoid or even reverse some of the damage?

"Treating Diabetes With Enzymes: What We Know Now"
Up to a year ago, for anyone asking if systemic enzymes could help lessen the load of troubles that beset Type 1 diabetic patients, I would have told them about lowering pancreatic inflammation, and possibly helping with lower extremity circulatory issues. I would have never suggested that the use of enzymes could decrease the need for insulin, increase energy or reverse the seemingly myriad of things diabetics suffer from. Then we started getting information from Type 1 patients that amazed even me and that have subsequently sparked new research.

"Increasing Anabolism With Enzymes"
Most of us in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine during the 1970's and 80's had supposed that the monumental achievements of the totalitarian Communist countries in Olympic sport had been solely the result of their widespread use of drugs, anti inflammatory cortico steroids, growth enhancing drugs such as Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid hormone, IGF 1 hormone and muscle building anabolic steroids. (1). And indeed the uses of these drugs and other medical techniques to improve performance, such as blood doping, was standard practice in the Eastern Block sports institutes.

"The Natural Environment of the Gut"
That enzymes and good bacteria (pro biotics) each have beneficial health promoting effects on the body is beyond question. Little over a decade ago physicians would laugh in the face of any mother who told her child's doc that she used the pro biotics to cut the antibiotic caused diarrhea in her baby. Today there are actual pharmecutical companies marketing pro biotic products to go along with antibiotic therapy in children to correct the disbiosis caused by the drugs. The good bacteria do various super important jobs from simple digestion and the enhancement of food absorption, to turning the colon into the largest organ of immunity in the body, as the intestinal wall once well colonized with good bacteria will turn out immunoglobins by the tens of millions and help the body fight and avoid disease.

"Women’s Fibrosis Diseases"
Fibrocystic Breast Disease, Uterine Fibroids, Ovarian Cysts, Endometriosis; all words women dread hearing of in relation to themselves or their loved ones. Why does it seem that these diseases are becoming more common now than they were a generation or two ago and why is it that with all of the money thrown into “research” on combating these maladies, conventional medicine seems no closer to an answer (or cure) now than they were before the moneys started pouring in? And lastly, since standard drug / surgery based medicine seems helpless against these diseases (except for hair of the dog treatment as we’ll see), is there anything in Natural healing that can be used to combat these ills?

"Fibrosis, the Enemy of Life"
What is fibrosis? Fibrosis can be found in many forms. In women it can manifest as the estrogen driven diseases of Fibrocystic Breast Disease, Uterine Fibroids, Endometriosis and Ovarian Cysts. It can also be found post operatively in the Lymphedema had after mastectomy as the fibrin clogs the lymphatic drainage channels and thickens the lymphatic fluid. In both sexes fibrosis forms the post operative scar tissue that binds the intestines, or restricts the range of motion of a limb and joint or forms thickened scars and keloids marring cosmetic surgery. Fibrosis can develop in the arteries and forms the framework around which arterial sclerotic plaque builds. In COPD, Emphysema, Asthmatic and Chronic Bronchitis patients fibrosis creates scar tissue as a spider web inside the lungs restricting their expansion and clogging alveolar sacs to prevent O2 transfer to the blood. In men fibrosis grows inside the micro blood supply and spongy tissues of the penis restricting blood flow and full expansion during erection. This is the main reason why erection size diminishes with age.

"Enzymes in the Fight Against Cancer"
Cancer, the very name alone scares most people. These days man has a vast amount of information on what things cause the disease, how it progresses, it's growth rates vs. age, which forms are faster spreading than others but what we don't posses is the answer as to how to stop it. I won't touch on what I believe are the business reasons why the disease has such poor treatment rates in the US as opposed to else where, this isn't the forum for it. Suffice to say that other countries have a better handle on fighting the disease than we do and lets look at one of the reasons why.

"Is Fibromyalgia Real?"
For all of the strides Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) patients have made in getting their condition recognized as a true disease, even to the point of having a diagnostic (CPT-4) code for the condition: now, the major movers and shakers in the medical insurance world are pushing to reverse the recognition and have FMS patients relegated to psychiatric wards again! To make matters worse they (the insurance companies), it seems have bought the MD who first documented the facts behind the condition and called it a true disease.

"Fighting Viruses, and Winning; From the Flu to Bio Terrorism"
A virus cannot be killed using antibiotics. Those medications are meant to slay bacteria, which are a whole different class of critter altogether. Viruses cannot be feld by using herbs, colostrum, or any of the popular multi level marketing products touted as being immune enhancer's and germ fighters. The nastier viruses will not succumb to extremes in body temperature either fever or cold. In short viruses are perfect weapons because they can't easily be done away with.

"Pain Free Training for Worn Out Boomers"
So, you've been training for years; you think you know your body better than anyone else and you have a considerable list of accomplishments in sports. All sources of pride. But lately the aches have been creeping in. They've been coming on sooner and lasting longer than you remember. Lately on your runs there have been some occasional sharp pains from deep within the knees. The bursa sac under the kneecap is swollen just enough that you cant see your patella tendon on one side. And your shoulders! Sometimes you want to dog paddle when you should be crawling, never mind about it getting caught when doing a lay up shot or (forbid) it clunking in and out of joint when you're getting the groceries out of the trunk! Sound like you yet? If not it soon will be. It's not a matter of if; it's a matter of when.

"How to Keep From Having a Heart Attack: Do Less Aerobic Exercise!"
That title certainly runs against the grain of everything we've been conditioned (brain washed) to believe in the last 30 years! After 30 years of lowering cholesterol, avoiding salt, taking an aspirin a day and running, what have we got to show for it? Heart disease is still the #1 killer disease in America. Plus, we now have Alzheimer's, electrolyte depletion, renal damage, intestinal hemorrhage, and severely worn joints to show for our efforts! So if all this hasn't worked - what is the real culprit behind heart disease?

"I Told You So, Cox 2 Drugs Kill!"
The Franciscan in me tries to restrain me from gloating and saying I was right all along, but for now I'll allow myself the pleasure of saying about Vioxx and the rest of the COX 2 crowd, “I told you so”!

It was some 6 or so years ago when the folks from Searle, a pharmaceutical company owned by Monsanto, came over to a booth I was working at a American Academy of Sports Medicine convention and proudly proclaimed that their new COX 2 drug Celebrex would put the enzyme company I was then working for out of business. Heady with their latest research, they said the COX 2 drugs did not have ANY of the side effects of the COX 1 (i.e. Aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen etc), and that no one would need such a crude and natural thing as enzymes to control inflammation when just a couple of doses per day of their new wonder drug would do so with out all the fuss of having to take large numbers of enzyme pills per day. (Pfizer bought Searle from Monsanto some years ago and now owns Celebrex).

"Real cause of Heart Attacks"
For the last 30 years people have thought the cause of heart disease was, cholesterol. That was the boggy man orthodox medicine waved in front of Americans noses as the do all end all of heart disease. Control your cholesterol and you'll avoid heart disease. So for the last 30 years Americans have dramatically lowering their fat intake: who eats steady diets of deep fried foods anymore, who still cooks with lard, even Kentucky Fried Chicken changed their cooking technique and name to reflect the nations wanting to reduce their fat intake. And, by and large the targets that were set by medicine were met. In 1966 after Harvard's famous Framingham cholesterol study, the public was told that a cholesterol count of 300 was good. That was easily accomplished mostly via diet alone, but the rate of heart disease and heart attack did not go down!

The Essentials of Life and Wellness
For at least the last 40 years most of us have been taking vitamin and mineral supplements and have been doing and feeling somewhat better. Almost daily now there is more and more information on the function of some nutrient and on its place in the overall scheme of health.

"A preliminary trial of Serrapeptase™ in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome"
This study was planned to assess the response of Serrapeptase™ in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Mean age was 43.9 years with male to female ratio of 1:2.33. Sixty five percent cases showed significant clinical improvement which was supported by significant improvement in electrophysiological parameters. Recurrence was reported in four cases.

WORSHIP MUSIC IN THREE DIMENSIONS - How to Sing Down the Presence and Power of God
This book was written to help churches bring their congregation into the very lap of God. This can be accomplished by adapting a certain musical progression during the time of congregational singing.

A must-read for every pastor, worship leader and serious worshipper. After visiting hundreds of churches, Rev. Pedigo believes this is a blueprint for corporate church revival.
