Many digestive tract disorders are the result of an improper amount of bile secretions, a lack of digestive enzymes to break down food properly, or an overgrowth of yeast. The digestive tract should work harmoniously, just like a well-directed orchestra. Too much of one thing is very distracting and overpowering; for instance, too much bile can cause diarrhea.
Conversely, the lack of certain components will not allow the full benefit that could be enjoyed. Another example: too little bile can cause constipation.
ZIME allows the body to balance the digestive function: it supplies the building blocks for digestive enzymes; it balances the pH; it thins down thickened bile so that it flows freer; it encourages the growth of friendly flora, reducing candida overgrowths; it decreases the reproductive abilities of Shigella, Salmonella and other bacteria-like invasions; and it makes the membranes of the digestive tract healthy so that foreign bacteria can not damage it. ZIME also facilitates putting nutrients into the blood stream.
A couple capsules of ZIME should stop nausea. I’ve had people tell me that they took the ZIME and threw up, so it “didn’t do any good.” Vomiting, throwing up, hurling, lurching, spewing…whatever you want to call it…can serve a useful purpose. I tell them to take it again, except this time, it’s going into a cleaner stomach. It will be able to soothe the membranes, instead of just cleaning them out.
I don’t want to give people the impression that when you take ZIME you are going to throw up. ZIME helps stop the nausea and settle the stomach. If your digestive tract is so far out of balance that you can’t keep anything down, you can make this formula into a tea. Regardless of whether you take it in capsule or tea form, it will allow the body to normalize it’s digestive tract functions. When you get to the point that you feel transparent, it is a good thing. ZIME is beneficial in nausea and diarrhea, stomach flu, stomach cramps, gas and heartburn.
Persistent disorder of the digestive tract should encourage you to look at your diet, because disorder is not the normal way to feel.
