Bio Enzymes may be something you associate with getting stains out of your clothes “in the wash”, but I’m talking about something else entirely.
And it’s important! Here are the facts:-
- We are all born with an inbuilt “enzyme potential”.
- Our inbuilt enzyme potential is a limited resource.
- Our enzyme “bank” It gets depleted by:-
- Eating cooked foods
- Becoming stressed
- Getting ill
- Having an unhealthy lifestyle.
What are enzymes and what do they do for us?
Enzymes are energized protein molecules. They are responsible for all biological activities in our 60 trillion cells. They are essential for every chemical reaction in our bodies.
As Dr Edward Howell says – “It runs down, health suffers and if it runs out, life ends”
In his book Enzyme Nutrition, he describes the effects of depleting your body’s enzyme bank as, ” . . . one of the paramount causes of premature aging and early death. I also believe it’s the underlying cause of almost all degenerative disease.”
Dr. Howell continues, “To begin with, if the body is overburdened [in supplying] enzymes to the saliva, gastric juice, pancreatic juice and intestinal juice, then it must curtail the production of enzymes for other purposes. If this occurs, then how can the body also make enough enzymes to run the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, muscles and other organs and tissues?” According to Dr. Howell, “This ‘stealing’ of enzymes from other parts of the body to service the digestive tract sets up a competition for enzymes among the various organ systems and tissues of the body. The resulting metabolic dislocations may be the direct cause of cancer, coronary heart disease, diabetes, and many other chronic incurable disease.”
It our own responsibility to replenish our own enzymes to improve our health, longevity and quality of life. In this series I will be letting you know how to replenish your enzyme bank, naturally.
