I hear what you are saying and it makes sense. I think what I’ll do is take the enzyme supplements for now and try the grape bitters as I am further along in the recovering process. I don’t thinks the enzyme supplement is meant to be long term.
I am also taking a homeopathic called digestive enzyme liquescence which seems to help normalize the enzyme production issues within the body, so I am hoping/wondering whether this works like the grape bitters (but differently) to get the body to produce it again. It does contain alcohol in it, but I am not getting a reaction to the alcohol and its needed to contain its purity.
I think he just wants me to get energy from the food I am eating for the time being (next 2 weeks) and then after that he has other treatments in mind (maybe grape bitters, etc).
