Enzymes for Allergies

My husband had the car washed one day last week. The next day I drove it down to town in the valley. After just a few hours in the valley it was covered in yellow pollen.


Spring has sprung. The trees producing that yellow pollen look beautiful arrayed in a plethora of flowers. The first flowering trees and bushes are even blooming up here in the mountains.


In the past I loved the spring and fall seasons the best because of their beauty. In recent years I’ve come to love winter the best because the pollens and chemicals … Read the rest

Big Enzyme Leak

What’s the Cause of the Big Enzyme Leak?

Eating mostly cooked and processed food gradually depletes our enzyme bank accounts. (Aha, perhaps we could actually do something about this. Perhaps make better choices.)

Also, current mass agricultural techniques produce vegetables, fruits and grains lower in enzymes. And, fruit and vegetables may be genetically altered to have fewer enzymes to ensure a longer shelf life. That means our food is deficient in enzymes before we ever put it in our mouths.

So how leaky are YOU!

Around age 27 enzyme production declines. Even though you may not notice it, the … Read the rest

The Great Enzyme Bank Robbery

Dr. Pottenger and his cats shed some light on how we rob ourselves of the enzymes in our enzyme bank accout.

In his great nutritional experiment, Dr. Pottenger fed 3 generations of cats either raw food (enzymes intact) or cooked food (no enzymes left). The second and third generation of kitties on the cooked food developed more and more degenerative problems with each succeeding generation. They finally could not reproduce by the fourth generation. Their bank account of enzymes was depleted.

So did your parents eat a lot of cooked and nutritionally deficient food? Then you started with a smaller … Read the rest

Enzymes – The Spark of Life!

Enzymes are the sparks of life that keep us alive. Most people have depleted their stores of digestive and metabolic enzymes. But you can get that spark of life back in your body.

What is an enzyme and why are they important? Enzymes are huge proteins that speed up chemical reactions. They are the sparks of life. They keep chemical processes going fast enough to keep us alive. To a certain extent they recycle themselves in that they’re not used up during the chemical processing. However eventually they can be depleted.

Let’s identify the classes of enzymes.

  1. Digestive enzymes: The
