How Enzymes Can Heal Your Body



Who Needs Enzymes?

Abstract from Chapter One of The Enzyme Cure

By Lita Lee, Ph.D.

How Enzyme Can Help Heal and Prevent DiseaseWho needs enzymes? Every body -- babies, children, adults and older people, as well as your cat and your dog. Why does every body need enzymes? Because enzymes do the work required for all life processes. They come alive or are activated in the presence of moisture (water), the right temperature (your body temperature) and the right amount of acid or alkalinity. Each activated enzyme does work of a very specific kind. In other words, each enzyme has a job to do. It may be digestion of a certain kind of food. It may be the manufacture of a hormone. It may be keeping your blood clean and free of toxins. Your life, vitality and your health depend upon an adequate supply of enzymes.

Enzymes can be divided into three major categories: metabolic enzymes, pancreatic enzymes and food or plant enzymes.

Metabolic enzymes: Hundreds of thousands of metabolic enzymes are made by the human body and are responsible for running its chemistry. These enzymes are involved in all physiological processes including breathing, thinking, talking, moving, behaving and immunity.

Pancreatic enzymes: In addition to metabolic enzymes, the pancreas secretes about 22 pancreatic enzymes, including amylase, lipase and proteolytic enzymes, which continue the work of digesting food in the small intestine after plant enzymes have begun the digestive process in the stomach.

Plant (food) enzymes: These are essential to the proper digestion of food. Present in all raw foods and as supplements, plant enzymes include protease (digests protein), amylase (digests carbohydrates), lipase (digests fat), disaccharidases (digest sugars) and cellulase (digests soluble fiber). Unlike pancreatic enzymes, plant enzymes work in the mouth and the stomach where they predigest foods. This is the secret of predigesting foods in the stomach with plant enzymes. Pancreatic enzymes work in the small intestine, not the stomach. Both plant and pancreatic enzymes work in the blood.

Using supplemental plant enzymes in addition to eating certain raw foods spares the pancreas from having to do 100% of digestion. This is why I use plant instead of pancreatic enzymes.

If you take plant enzymes with food and /or eat certain raw foods, these enzymes will predigest up to 60% of the carbohydrates, up to 30% of the protein and up to 10% of the fat in 30 to 60 minutes, before hydrochloric acid is secreted and before pancreatic enzymes have been released to the small intestines.

If you take enzymes on an empty stomach, they enter into the bloodstream and go to work there. Like little PAC men, these enzymes assist the immune system by digesting and disposing of toxins (any substance that does not belong in the blood) and eating (digesting) the coating of certain viruses, enabling immune system workers to then destroy them. Taking enzymes in this way can help reverse inflammatory conditions. Each type of enzyme has a specific anti-inflammatory action. Since plant enzymes digest toxins rather than killing them off as antibiotics do in the case of bacteria, this process causes no side effects if the digested toxins can be properly eliminated through the urinary tract, skin, colon and lungs.

Enzymes are much more heat-sensitive than vitamins and are the first to be destroyed during cooking, pasteurization, canning, microwaving or heating above 118 degrees F. You can swallow pounds of vitamins and minerals, but without enzymes, nothing works and you are wasting your money.

Since whatever you do not digest becomes a poison, there is an enzyme link to most health problems. The Enzyme Cure presents 50 case histories describing 36 health conditions. A partial list includes:

  • Digestive disorders - poor digestion/allergies
  • Children's health problems
  • The Pro-thyroid diet and hormonal balancing
  • Female problems (PMS, menopause, infertility, menstrual irregularities, etc.)
  • Male problems (benign prostatic hypertrophy)
  • Stomach problems (gastritis, ulcers, acid reflux)
  • Asthma, Bronchitis
  • Constipation, Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Headaches
  • Gallbladder problems
  • Injuries (bruises, sprains, broken bones, tendonitis, disc problems)Insomnia

Here are some examples:

  • Infant colic, sometimes accompanied by projectile vomiting can be supported with a multiple digestive enzyme called Thera-zyme DGST (digest).
  • Thera-zyme Kdy is a primary allergy relief formula whether the allergen is dust, flowers, animals, air pollution or food. If more help is needed, DERM-H3 provides enzymatic antihistamine support. DERM-H3 is also excellent for skin manifestations (hives, herpes, rashes, bug bites, bee stings, poison oak/ivy and the itching that sometimes accompanies these conditions).
  • Chronic diarrhea can be supported with an enzyme/herbal formula called IrB (irritable bowel).
  • Chronic constipation can be supported with an enzyme/herbal formula called Thera-zyme LgI (large intestine).
  • Stomach problems can be relieved with an enzyme/herbal formula, Thera-zyme Stm (stomach) in addition to avoiding gastric irritants.
  • Thera-zyme TRMA (trauma) provides healing nutritional support of injury or of soft tissue trauma following surgery
  • Thera-zyme Rsp provides nutritional support in people who may have lung problems such as coughing or wheezing.
  • Thera-zyme Para is an enzymatic calcium formula that provides nutritional relief of calcium deficiency that may cause nocturnal leg cramps or a nocturnal cough.
  • Thera-zyme Sym nutritionally supports the upper cervical vertebrae and helps hold chiropractic adjustments. Upper cervical problems can cause a variety of symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, indigestion, constipation and more.
