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.
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!
