new to your blog- so sorry to hear Martin is doing poorly. Please see the nutritive info in 'Nourishing Traditions' by Sally Fallon. Fermented foods would help with absorption and made digestion much easier. So much terrific information in one place. People should not be yellow, so I will keep good thoughts headed your way. Much good luck!!!
