Enzymes are particularly sensitive to the molecular destruction of cooking. Unfortunately, each of us is given only a limited supply of enzyme energy at birth, and this supply must work to keep every body system in working order throughout our lifetime. The only other backup source we have comes from the food we eat – but food cooked above 40C kills enzymes! So what happens when you withdraw a large amount of enzymes as a result of toxic exposure, or physically strenuous activity, or an emotional crisis? Or breathe unclean air, or become extremely angry, or eat cooked/manufactured foods? The balance in your enzyme account then drops. Your body faces enzyme bankruptcy.
When this happens, the body puts out an emergency call to enzymes throughout the body. The body will rob enzymes from glands, muscles, nerves, and blood to help in the demanding digestive process. Eventually there is a deficiency of enzymes in those areas, and this is the real cause of various allergies and diseases. According to the medical research compiled by the pioneering enzymologist, Dr. Edward Howell, enzyme shortages are commonly seen in a number of chronic illnesses such as allergies, skin disorders, obesity, and heart disease, as well as in ageing and certain types of cancer.
The healing power of enzymes is absolute and proven. Almost every regulatory system in our body depends on enzymes and suffers by their depletion: coagulation, inflammation, wound healing, and tissue regeneration, to name just a few. The enzyme account throughout the body is replenished by the living foods we eat, as the enzymes are absorbed into the blood to reestablish normal blood-serum enzyme levels.
The Hippocrates Diet and Health Program stops unnecessary waste of enzyme energy, and makes daily deposits into the enzyme account. Few withdrawals and large deposits are the key to becoming richly supplied with the metabolic enzymes that are responsible for building, cleansing, and healing the body.
