Format: Paperback
Dr. Cichoke shows how every life process depends on enzymes. He covers a broad range of subjects starting with digestion, elimination, co-enzymes, how to obtain more enzymes in your diet and through supplementation. He has a 5-step program of do's and don'ts, including avoidance of aluminum cookware, refined sugars and salt, coffee, and so on. He also tells you how and what to eat and how to prepare foods for the best utilization of enzymes. Dr. Cichoke addresses a large range of health problems from extending life to AIDS and cancer. He also covers medications that affect enzymes, including OTC drugs and prescription drugs, as well as foods that contain enzyme inhibitors. This is a great book! One I believe everyone should own. I also would strongly suggest Dr. Cichoke's book "The Complete Book of Enzyme Therapy". This book is set up very much like the "Prescription for Natural Healing", however it addresses health from an enzyme point of view. I would rate them both a 5-star, must have if you care at all about your health. This book was required reading for my Enzymes class, "The Complete Book of Enzyme Therapy" was not, but after reading this one, I wanted to know more. This book is a great intro to enzymes, the complete book goes even further. It is in fairly simple to understand language if you have a bit of medcial background, you might need a medical dictionary if not.

This book explains the mechanics of enzymes within the food
processing apparati of the body. These enzymes occur in all
living things. There are approximately 3000 enzymes which exist to ward off disease, assist the heartbeat, repair tissues, digest
food and perform a variety of important functions in the body.
The author explains how proteases breakdown protein.
i.e. histidine, leucine and tryptophan
There is a pH balance which consists of acids and alkalines
in a net balancing interaction within the body. Digestion
happens in the small intestine. There are extensive secretion
processes in the body i.e.
o saliva 1000 ml.
o gastric juices 1500 ml.
o pancreas 1000 ml.
o bile 1000 ml.
o small intestine 1800 ml.
o large intestine 200 ml.
Digestive processes are disturbed with improper tooth
alignment, diminished acid secretion, pancreatic insufficiency,
celial disease, lactose intolerance, stress. Digestion can
be helped by some of the recommendations contained in this book.
Various enzyme products can facilitate the digestive processes.
Soy sauce is a well-known enzyme enhancer. In addition, raw
veggies will assist in the process of enzyme interaction.
The author reviews an overall strategy to maximize enzyme
activity within the body consisting of:
o veggies
o garlic and onion
o minimum use of aluminum
o reduced salt intake
o reduced sugar
o an increase in bulk
o no coffee and smaller meals
o pineapple and papaya
o enzyme co-energizers Co-Q 10 ( coenzyme), zinc, red meat, nuts,
B vitamins., magnesium (Mg.), iron (Fe), copper (Cu.) and
Selenium (Se)
Overall, this work has a wealth of information pertaining to
personal health maintenance. It should be in every medical/
nutritional library.

The book gives a basic understanding of what enzymes are and how they work in the body. Dr. Cichoke then outlines what he calls his Five-Step Jump Start Plus Enzymes Program to regain or maintain vibrant health.

Dr. Cichoke has many chapters addressing various conditions which research has shown to have eleviated or improved with the use of enzymes and enzyme therapy. Dr. Cichoke is also careful to clarify that enzymes are but one part of any entire change in lifestyle which includes eating more raw fruits and vegetables and maintaining a positive state of mind.

If you are looking to take control of your health and stop living as a victim of the current medical establishment and pharmaceutical industry, then this book is a must read.

The more I see these 5 star reviews on poor books the more I do believe that allot of these authors and/or publishing companies have shells typing up phoney reviews for them!

I read several of the 5 star reviews which is what I placed the decision to purchase this book on... unlike what many of the reviewers state.. this book does not tell you what enzymes to purchase or where - specifically to accomplish what you need to accomplish in healing or in preventative care.

His big 5 Step Plan is malarkey... something that we all have heard a million times already... especially, if we are researchers/readers of natural health books... with again No Definitive information on what enzyme supplements to purchase or take to aide in healing.

His alleged Big 5 Step Plan is simply... Diet... we all know that... controlling the way you think we all know that... Exercise, we all know that one... Visualization that one too and taking supplements and enzymes with No specifics given whatsoever.

He broadly states the 3 types of enzymes and what they broadly perform in the body... that's it folks.

If you are hoping to get any truly worthy information on what enzymes to take for what ailments ... you can forget it... he is not giving it in this book. I don't think he even knows it. And he repeats his... 'Simpleton' ... 5 step formula a dozen times ... like he is giving away the 'Secret to the Mint'... this book is a Farse if you are looking for specific help and guidance it is Not Here!
