What kind of whey are you using? This is something I want to try soon. I have nerve damage from chronic nerve root inflammation and am in constant pain and cannot walk more than a few steps. My Naturopath/Chiropractor says I seem to have serious absorption problems and my body is not utilizing minerals and many nutrients. I crave sweets and starches for energy, but I know in the long run they are counter productive to healing and try not to indulge at every craving. A drink made with green food and ACV helps, but the energy from that does not last long either. I tried the Moreless Alkalizing drink, but it made me very ill, I cannot tolerate the calcium hydroxide at all.
I have read a lot on whey including Owen's excellent post here, but still am not sure what will be best. I would appreciate your help since it seems we have similar problems in some aspects.
By the way, I know all about the discouragement you wrote about yesterday. I had so much pain and weakness and felt so discouraged, I could not reply to your post because of the same feelings.
