Found – The Keys to a Longer Life

Transform your life with ENZYMES!

Researchers estimate that up to 30% of Americans suffer from an affliction known as Leaky Gut Syndrome (just the phrase causes my stomach to turn a little), and as much as 90% of all chronic symptoms and chronic conditions are linked to it.

Leaky Gut almost always goes undiagnosed. Ailments like arthritis, diabetes, asthma, chronic fatigue, inability to lose weight are all related in part with poor or declining gut health.

Could this be happening inside of you without you even knowing about it?

There is simple remedy for Leaky Gut and the myriad of ailments it causes. Read on for the closest thing we’ve found to the discovery of the Fountain of Youth, that could just possibly heal your entire digestive tract!

Enzymes are the Building Blocks of Life

Enzymes are the building blocks of life itself. They help us to see, hear, feel, move, digest, think and heal. Enzymes assist the body in breaking down food, providing the body with life-giving fuel.

Secreted by the pancreas, production of these vital enzymes decline as we age, diminishing the ability of our digestive tract to break down and extract nutrients from the food we eat.

Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that lack of stomach chi (energy), leads to increased disease, fatigue and aging. Without enzymes, a person’s stomach chi becomes dangerously low.

As you might suspect, processed foods are devoid of life-giving enzymes. This is one of the reasons why I rail against the Standard American Diet of fast-food and sugary sodas! Adding enzymes to your diet every day allows you to nourish your digestive system and avoid chronic conditions associated with leaky gut.

Dr. Edward Howell pioneered the use of plant-based enzymes to prevent disease, teaching science that all disease (including the dreaded Leaky Gut Syndrome) is nothing more than the lack or imbalance of enzymes.

Sugar-induced Cancers on the Rise

Old adage from the world of Natural Healing:

“Disease loves obesity; it gives it a place to breed.”

Did you watch 60 Minutes this past Sunday night with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta reporting on “Is Sugar Toxic“? In a classic piece of damning investigation, Dr. Gupta slammed “Big Sugar” for most of the ills that plague modern mankind.

Just what does sugar do?

  • It fuels obesity, the biggest epidemic worldwide and particularly here in America right now.
  • It fuels cardiovascular disease, perhaps more so than fatty foods
  • But worst of all, IT FUELS CANCER!

Several cancers are linked to obesity and a sedentary lifestyle of little or no exercise. Cancer reports rose every year from 1999 through 2008, even with improved screening and a sharp decline in cigarette smokers.

Rates of cancers of the kidney, pancreas, lower esophagus and uterus have increased annually through 2008 (the latest data available) according to the Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer.

Breast cancer in women at least 50 years old declined marginally by 1.3% annually from 1999 to 2005, but suddenly jumped between 2006 and 2008. (I think this can be attributed to an overload of consuming cancer-causing melted cheese pizzas and Starbucks Frappucinos loaded with sugar, milk and whipped cream.)

These grim statistics add to a fast-growing body of evidence that obesity raises the risk of cancer. As many as one-third of common cancers in the industrialized world are linked directly to excess weight and a chronic lack of physical activity, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Obesity rates have skyrocketed in the U.S. According to Center for Disease Control (CDC), an estimated 68.8% of the entire US population is overweight or worse, obese. This is where the cancers associated with eating and weight gain are breeding like wild-fire, such as Breast and Colo-rectal cancer, as well as less common ones, such as Pancreatic cancer, which is what killed Steve Jobs of Apple.

Excess weight can also decrease the chance of survival once a patient is diagnosed with cancer. The burden is “pretty substantial”, says Dr Marcus Plescia, Director of the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control at the CDC.
The evidence of a casual link with cancer is far clearer with excess weight and lack of physical activity, than with diet says Dr Plescia.

“People might think they can do themselves the most good by taking a vitamin pill, when actually what they need to do, to do the most good, is to be far more physically active and control their weight,” said June Steens, head of the department of nutrition at the University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health.

The rising rates contrast with the progress made in recent years against major killers such as Lung cancer, scientists say. While tobacco use has plummeted since the 1960’s, Obesity has soared, with no tailing off in sight, or projected.

What does this hold for the future? It’s grim, to say the least.

Thirty years ago, Dr Sook Kim, the wonderful old Korean doctor who mentored me during my own personal fight with cancer, was saying the same thing as June Steens:

“Exercise is the best vitamin pill you can take. And God gives it to you for free!”
