Health promoting enzymes found in living plant-based foods are particularly prone to molecular destruction by cooking. Hippocrates Health Institute places great emphasis on the valuable beneficial enzymes available in living foods and have witnessed the health promoting effects through the enzyme-rich Hippocrates diet.
When we are born our bodies are provided with a limited supply of enzymes used to keep our system in healthy working order for our entire lives. Replenishing this stock is possible through the foods we eat, but cooking foods above 115 degrees F kills enzymes! Each time we contract a diseases such as a virus or a common cold, encounter stress, or even breath polluted air we are withdrawing from our digestive enzyme account. This account is not replenished and eventually the body may face enzyme bankruptcy!
When the body hits rock bottom enzyme levels it goes into an emergency mode robbing enzymes from glands, muscles, nerves and blood to assist the troubled digestive process. As this trend continues, all other critical areas also become depleted of enzymes and this is now widely believed by many scientists to be the cause of various allergies and diseases. At Hippocrates Health Institute we have noticed enzyme shortages in people suffering from skin disorders, obesity, and heart disease.
When enzymes are introduced back into the system via living foods, notable improvements can be found with blood coagulation, inflammation, wound healing, and tissue regeneration to name just a few. These enzymes replenish and reestablish normal blood-serum enzyme levels, and this process can actually be tracked by adding radioactive dye to enzyme supplements and trace them through the digestive system. Researchers discovered the tagged enzymes making their way into the liver, spleen, kidneys, heart, lungs, duodenum and urine.
The living foods diet encouraged by the Hippocrates Health Institute’s Life Transformation Program achieves two important functions relating to our enzyme account. Firstly by consuming a diet rich in nutrients, oxygen, phytonutrients, enzymes, chlorophyll, and essential nutrients, the immune system is bolstered and stops the unnecessary waste of enzyme energy. Secondly a living food diet is naturally rich in enzymes that are deposited into your enzyme account on a daily basis, keeping you richly supplied with metabolic enzymes that are responsible for building, cleansing, and regenerating the body.
