12 Points on Flora Ferm™
Dr. John Whitman Ray explores the centrality of digestion in restoring health, including the key role of enzymes, particularly in their ability to eliminate unwanted mucoproteins. He presents a solid case for Flora Ferm™ as an essential aid in solving the problems of nutritional deficiencies due to poor digestion. Also shown is the importance of natural d-amino acids (dextrorotatory) for complete hormone secretion and full metabolic functioning. The high levels of enzymes in Prime Directive further enable the breakdown of lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Another gem is the importance of normal oxygen respiration for healthy cell development and activity, and the disastrous consequence of its replacement by sugar fermentation. These points and many other finer aspects of nutrition are detailed by Dr. Ray as he examines the ability of Flora Ferm™ and the specially selected 22 organic whole foods pre-digested by the 13 major lactobacilli to deliver the pure raw ingredients the body needs to build itself, clean itself, and restore itself.
