About the Author

Dr. Edward Howell began his study of food enzymes more than eighty years ago. After receiving a medical license from the state of Illinois, he spent six years on the professional staff of the Lindlahr Sanitarium, a well-known “nature cure” hospital. In 1930, Dr. Howell established his own facility for the treatment of chronic ailments, utilizing nutritional and physical therapies. Until his retirement in 1970, Dr. Howell devoted his time to both his private practice and his food and soil enzyme research.  He continued his writing and research efforts up until the time of his death in 1988.

Kudos to Dr Howell for writing such a forward-thinking and valuable book!

Don't let that scare you away, however, because the language is very easy to understand, and the book is easy to read.

A great book to help take the mystry out of food choices and managing a healthy lifestyle.

This book turned my conceptions of food, nutrition, disease, disorder, and digestion up-side-down. If you have doubts about *why* a raw food diet is a good idea, and why in many cases it can save a person's life, then this is the book to start with. "Enzyme Nutrition" is pretty much a scientific book. It is not a manifesto, or a how-to book, but rather a presentation of one man's life-long research into the role that food enzymes play in human digestion. Don't let that scare you away, however, because the language is very easy to understand, and the book is easy to read. In fact, this book is a condensation of the author's unpublished 700 page book, a book that supposedly took him 20 years to write.
It is really a shame that this book is not a bestseller, and that Dr. Howell's theories are not more widely known. The ideas in it are, pardon the possible hyperbole, revolutionary. Many of the ideas that you read in other raw food and enzyme books are based on Howell's research (although, to be accurate, not all raw food advocates are advocates of Howell's ideas). I can not recommend this book highly enough. I hope I live to see Howell's theories accepted by the mainstream "medical establishment," just as the discoveries of vitamins and minerals (which are only two-thirds of the equation) have.

Format: Paperback
For anyone interested in health and disease, THIS book will open your eyes to a vital, yet overlooked nutritional element that is the single largest deficiency in the world. Startling examples of how traditional diets are lacking in enzymes, and the relationship to degenerative disease processes.
I utilize this book in my professional nutrition work and patients are able to read and understand the plain language used to describe the facts. This helps them become personaly involved in improving their health!

Format: Paperback
Dr. Howell's 'Enzyme Nutrition' is an excellent look at why it is desirable to include as many fresh, natural, and raw foods into ones diet as possible. He backs up his findings on the nutritive, health-giving, and cancer-fighting elements of living foods with years of research, statistics, and even labarotary animal cases. While the use of labaratory animals for research is ethically problematic- the statistics Dr. Howell has gained from them are a great boon to this book, his position, and the health enthusiast community.
For all the cynics who think a raw food diet is a silly fad, they might have difficulty arguing the facts present in this book. For those who follow a diet such as the Hippocrates Diet, or who realize the value of adding fresh and uncooked or minimally-cooked foods to their meals, this book will be a valuable source of information as to precisely why, in a scientific sense, your endeavor to eat living foods is not only justifiable, but very wise.
There's more to life than the foods you eat, but there's not much more to death than the foods you eat. Most people dig their own graves with their knives and forks. By understanding both the harmful and healthful qualities of various foods and how they are prepared, one can greatly increase once chances of survival through the 21st century. Of course, first one has to avoid getting hit by a car or flying airplanes.

Format: Paperback
The customer who wrote that critique panned the book, citing that it primarily was out of date and did not give good scientific evidence. However, this book is NOT Dr. Howell's "scientific" book. In the mid-40s he published a book filled with many hundreds of citations supporting his conclusions. THIS book is a popularization of his conclusions. I have read both, and can definitely say that this book is entertaining, enlightening, and still revolutionary in its implications for proper human nutrition.

The reviewer also objected to the idea that the pancreas has a finite capacity for enzyme production. Dr. Howell notes that the heart also has a finite capacity for beating cycles. This fact is generally accepted in the life sciences, so why the idea that the pancreas is similarly limited is so hard for that reviewer to accept is unclear.

I have seen nothing to disprove or discount Dr. Howell's conclusions. Indeed, I have been using his principles of enzyme supplementation in my own diet for over 16 years, and I can personally attest that he is RIGHT because one's body does indeed process food differently when there are plenty of enzymes available.

This book lays out so well the role that "enzymes" play in our health, that by the time I finished reading it, I switched to a "live-foods" diet. This book is a must read for anyone who's interested in improving their health.

Format: Paperback
In this "Enzyme Nutrition", Eddie Howell and May Murray managed to squeeze a lot of information into a compact space. A good effort indeed!
The book is small; but, touched every vital point. Its outline good, and includes: the catalytic nature of food enzymes; their individual sources; stability; instability; as well as other biochemical and physiological characteristics.
This book will be of great benefit to nutritionist/dieticians, biochemists, pharmacologists, and many others. Its theme is simple and straightforward. Still, I will advise any non-science biased enthusiasts (like: bodybuilders and fitness [people]), who would like to venture into it, to keep a biochemistry dictionary at hand. "Enzyme Nutrition" will assist its readers in assessing and selecting healthy natural foods. It is an ideal and affordable advisor, which diabetics and other persons with limited food choice would enjoy reading.
