    Has anyone see the program on KOCE with Brenda Watson on your digestive health?

    HOPE stands for:

    High Fiber
    Omega Oils
    Probiotics
    Enzymes

    This program is running everyday and is very interesting. She feels alot of our health issues are caused by bad digestion and poor nutrition.

    I can believe that... She said eating wheat gave her heartburn. I would love to discover how to have digestive health. I take probiotics, etc. but with gastritis, have a hard time with a high fiber diet.

    Brenda recommends getting fiber from Oat bran, flax seed, or acacia. Not psyllium.

    She also recommends 35 grams of fiber a day and to read labels on your food. Eating an entire head of lettuce gives only 2 gms of fiber, but a spinach salad is 10 gms.

    I ordered the program and will share more information when I receive the package.

    She has a regular program.

    I saw part of a fund drive for KOCE-TV in Orange County, CA. For $300 you get some books & videos featuring B. Watson.


    I checked the Los Angeles library. No books by Brenda Watson. I suspect lots of other books give the same advice tho.[This Message was Edited on 08/26/2006]
