The Enzyme Factor

I recently read The Enzyme Factor: How to Live Long and Never be Sick by Hiromi Shinya, MD. This is a comprehensive and groundbreaking book that delves into the role of enzymes in promoting optimal health and longevity. Dr. Shinya is a renowned medical expert and researcher who focuses on the pivotal importance of enzymes within the human body.

Dr. Shinya starts the book with this powerful statement: Your body has a miraculous ability to heal itself. It continues with the following: Your body is the healing system that can bring you into balance when illness strikes. Medicine can support your body through emergency, surgery can be necessary in certain circumstances, but it is only your own body that has the ability to heal.

The Cleveland Clinic defines Enzymes as proteins that help speed up the metabolism, or the chemical reactions in our bodies. They build some substances and break others down. All living things have enzymes. Dr. Shinya introduces readers to the fundamental concept of enzymes as the cornerstone of good health. He explains how enzymes facilitate essential chemical reactions in the body and act as catalysts to promote digestion, metabolism, and immune function. By understanding the critical role of enzymes, readers gain valuable insights into the significance of enzyme-rich foods and their impact on overall well-being.

In addition to talking at length about the goodness of Enzymes, the following are some of the topics covered in the book.

  • How to look younger and delay aging

  • How to live strengthen your body's natural defenses.

  • How to become a healthy 100 year old

  • Misconceptions with many dietary trends

  • What your intestinal traits can teach you about your health

  • Why drinking milk will cause osteoporosis

  • How your body will become oxidized if you eat oxidized foods

  • Why eating the meat of animals that have a higher body temperature than humans pollutes the blood

  • The inseparable relationship between the human body and the land

  • How love activates the immune system

This book is a paradigm shift that challenges conventional medical wisdom. By adopting an enzyme-rich diet and lifestyle, individuals can enhance their overall health, prevent diseases, and unlock the path to a vibrant and fulfilling life. This book serves as a valuable resource for anyone seeking to optimize their health naturally and maintain vitality as they age. The book has a lot of valuable information that if you chose to read and even incorporate some of the things discussed in your healthcare regimen, you can't go wrong.
