For those of you who celebrate the traditional Christmas and New Year's holidays, I hope you are all having a wonderful season. Ours has been nice and relatively calm, and we've managed to avoid colds and flu thus far in our household.

I attribute this in large part to maintaining my serrapeptase regimen, along with other systemic enzymes therapy (as well as the usual supplements which I believe help to maintain my health year-round.) It's been a particularly cold and nasty winter already in many parts of the U.S., and while the "being cold makes you sick" myth was dispelled long ago, it's still that time of year when people tend to get more illnesses like colds and flu.

This is due more to the fact that they're indoors more, and around more people than usual, all of which means there are more germs and bacteria flourishing in our environments than normal. Anyway, the upshot of all this is that if you maintain your health regimen during this time of year - while there's no guarantee you'll stay 100% healthy - you've got more of a fighting chance than you'd have otherwise.

So, more than ever, I recommend you head over to Advance Physician Formulas and pick up some extra serratiopeptidase for the winter and beyond. And for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, where you're now in the middle of summer, you're not excluded! I've always advised - since I discovered this most amazing of enzymes - that you keep it up year-round.

Lastly, yes, I'm still making progress on the book. The update here is that (in advance of the book release) I'll be offering a free report on systemic enzymes, as well as an informative email series which will be included at no charge. The only thing I ask in return is your email address - fair enough? You can now sign up to receive your free report with the opt-in box on the right, or on the new "Free Report" page, which should appear shortly.

Until then ... stay well, and keep up your serrapeptase therapy!
