Day 14: Enzymes: A Secret of Health and Longevity
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D.; Edward Howell; Dr. Anthony Cichoke; Enzyme Types: Metabolic and Digestive; Enzyme Preservation
Today you are going to learn in-depth about one of the most remarkable aspects of Live Food Nutrition – enzymes.
“Enzymes are substances that make life possible. No vitamin, mineral or hormones can do any work without enzymes. They are the manual workers that build the body from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. The body may have the raw building materials, but without the workers, it cannot begin.” - Dr. Edward Howell
Welcome to Day 14!
We use enzymes for just about every function in our bodies, yet as we age, our enzyme potential diminishes. What does this mean for our health? Our immune system, and our abilities to heal grow weak, and we experience the aging process. Tissues sag, it takes longer to recover from illness, tendons tighten, scar tissue increases, our blood thickens with fibrin, and so on.
There is a means available to us to counteract this aging process, and place less of a burden upon our system–through the use of live foods (which contain food enzymes) and exogenous enzyme supplementation, i.e. digestive enzymes with meals and proteolytic enzymes (that help your body do building, maintaining, and repair work) such as Vitalzym, which Dr. Cousens and I integrated for most patients we worked with.
Enzymes: A Secret of Health and Longevity
One of today’s downloads, “Enzymes: A Secret of Health and Longevity” by Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., is information that, when put into practice, will benefit you for the rest of your life. This is definitely one of the best readings available on this aspect of live food nutrition. A few excerpts:
“A doctor at Tufts Medical School found that in 100% of the cases of obesity he studied, all had lipase [fat burning enzyme] deficiencies. . .eating cooked fats or oils causes an eventual lipase deficiency in the system.”
BABIES WHO ARE NOT BREAST-FED are immediately forced to deal with a lipase and amylase deficiency in their food because they get almost no enzymes at all in pasteurized milk. In a study of more than 20,000 babies, the rate of illness was compared between completely breast-fed babies and bottle-fed babies. Pasteurized milk-fed babies had a mortality rate 56 times greater than breast milk-fed babies.
In research at George Washington University Hospital, when 50 grams of raw starch was administered to patients, the blood sugar only rose 1 mg in one-half hour before it began to decrease. With the cooked starch there was a dramatic average increase of 56 mg in one-half hour and then a 51-mg average drop by one hour.
EATING RAW FOODS IS A POTENT ACTIVITY which preserves enzymes and maximizes health.
I compiled this file while doing research for Dr. Cousens (2007). One of the big arguments that health professionals often try to level at Live Food Nutrition is that the living enzymes in our food have no effect on our health whatsoever. The claim is that enzymes in our food do not pass through the stomach to the intestines, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream. This file has been developed to put an end to this fallacious argument once and for all. The Debate is Over, folks. Enzymes are absorbed. Enjoy this important download.

Book: Enzymes for Health and Longevity
You get a whole book on the subject today! The book, Enzymes for Health and Longevity by Dr. Edward Howell, with an Introduction by health pioneer Viktoras Kulvinskas. Also includes an INTERVIEW of Dr. Howell by Viktoras Kulvinskas. This book is an important work in the field of Live Food Nutrition.
Also included today is a file on Vitalzym, developed by head research expert Dr. William Wong. You may already be initially familiar with Vitalzym from reading the Ingredients List for the Juice Feast, but here is a quick recap:
+ Vitalzym helps reinforce the body’s defense mechanism in the following ways:
+ Fibrin: Normal levels help guard against the formation of fibrin.
+ Blood: Enzymes help cleanse the blood of debris, maintaining blood health.
+ Immune Function: Enzymes help maintain healthy immune systems.
+ Healthy Circulation: Normal enzyme levels help promote blood circulation.
+ Reduce Inflammation: Helps your body repair damaged tissue, such as post-operative injuries, cuts and bruises. Reduces swelling and inflammation, which often alleviates pain, as is often the case in patients with arthritis or chronic back pain.
Make sure you note the section, “Vitalzym Dosing for Common and Chronic Conditions” in the file we have for you on this important healing asset.
Congratulations on the continuation of your Juice Feast!
We are truly proud of you. Are you writing, blogging, or videoing your Feasting experience? You will want to remember this important juncture in your life!
Treating Diabetes with Enzymes” by Dr. William Wong, ND, PhD
Up to a year ago, for anyone asking if systemic enzymes could help lessen the load of troubles that beset Type 1 diabetic patients, I would have told them about lowering pancreatic inflammation, and possibly helping with lower extremity circulatory issues. I would have never suggested that the use of enzymes could decrease the need for insulin, increase energy or reverse the seemingly myriad of things diabetics suffer from. Then we started getting information from Type 1 patients that amazed even me and that have subsequently sparked new research. Here are two typical case histories.
“Enzymes: the Key to Longevity” by Tim O’Shea
Enzymes “… are the most important unit in the human body, because every chemical change that takes place to repair tissue or to assimilate food involves the activity of enzymes. Without enzyme activity there is no life. No plant or animal can live without the activity of its enzymes.”-
Biologically, we are nothing more than collections of living cells. What happens to our cells happens to us. Life functions of cells are mediated by enzymes. A MUST-READ article by Tim O’Shea…

Dr. Anthony Cichoke: Enzymes - The Energy Adventure
Sick and tired of being sick and tired? You're not alone! Over two million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2019. More than 81 million have cardiovascular disease. Over 66 million suffer from heartburn. And millions more struggle with health problems ranging from immune disorders to inflammation, pain, digestive disorders and loss of energy. Research shows that enzyme therapy can effectively assist in treating these and other conditions. Come and find out how enzymes can jump start your life!
BIO: Dr. Anthony J. Cichoke is a chiropractic physician, researcher, lecturer and internationally known author who holds a Ph.D. in nutrition with an emphasis on enzymes. He has published 15 books, including The Complete Book of Enzyme Therapy and Enzymes and Enzyme Therapy.
