Book Description

The medical industry continues to tell us that conventional medicine is the only way to treat all of our health issues. For too many people, however, these treatments do little more than spend money. But there are alternatives. For decades, the use of natural enzymes has been studied and evaluated. The Enzyme Cure is a comprehensive guide for everyone who wishes to learn more about treating health problems with enzymes.

The Enzyme Cure teaches you how to use plant enzymes to help reverse asthma, cancer, diabetes, herpes, kidney stones, menopausal symptoms, weight problems, and dozens of other common disorders. It not only details the enzymes that should be used for each condition, but also guides you in treating many underlying problems through diet and lifestyle changes. If you have ever wanted safe and effective medical alternatives, ever wished that doctors would provide new solutions instead of more prescriptions, The Enzyme Cure is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Enzyme Cure: February 28, 2001
"The fact is, without enzymes, nothing works in the body," Lita Lee, Ph.D. states in her book, The Enzyme Cure: How Plant Enzymes Can Help You Relieve 36 Health Problems. Enzymes are "necessary for every chemical reaction in your body and the normal activity of your cells, tissues, fluids, and organs."
The human body contains three types of enzymes: metabolic, which are necessary for all body processes, such as breathing; pancreatic, which are required for digestion; and plant, which also aid in digestion. While the pancreas produces some enzymes, the body gets most of its enzymes from fresh, raw foods. A diet based on unprocessed foods is essential for good health.
Symptoms of enzyme-deficient diets include "allergies, fatigue, bloating, gas, indigestion, or any symptoms of undigested food," including "rashes, hives, nausea, headaches, diarrhea, or constipation."
Dr. Lee includes samples of the questionnaires and charts she uses to help diagnose enzyme deficiencies. She also discusses the various kinds of tests that can be used, with information on how to obtain them. All medical terms are explained with "quick definition" boxes on the same page, making it easy to follow her discussion.
The first part of the book explains enzyme deficiencies and therapy in general terms. The second, and largest, section delves into 36 specific health problems, with "success stories" drawn from her clinical practice. The causes of each condition are explained, along with preventative measures. Dr. Lee details the recommended enzyme therapies and dietary changes needed for each disorder. When appropriate, she recommends additional alternative therapies.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Paths to Health April 3, 2000
When I first found this book I had heard of enzymes but wasn't sure what they were, what they did or how they could help me and my family. I bought this book because it was from the Burton Goldburg group and I trust this line of books and information. The book is set up very precisely so not only is it very easy to read and understand but there are little side-bar notes defining things the average person would have not clue on. I never once got bored or found it hard to finish. It is packed full of wonderful information and success stories and broken into condition-specific chapters. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about natural treatments for common conditions or anyone who just wants to learn more. There is also a very helpful index to help you find an enzyme therapist in your area.

Let me address comments by two other reviewers before I share my opinion.

I share the same concerns about the test for upper back problems that one viewer shared. The test itself may cause injury to the back in some people. However, I am not willing to toss out the wisdom in the rest of the text based on one sidebar that concerns me. I read everything with discernment. This book is nearly a decade old and I expected to cross reference the information in this text with other more recent sources.

A second reviewer stated that this was a book for novices. I believe this is a strength. It is easy to read and understand even if you don't have a medical background. Because it breaks the book into sections by specific health problems, it is easy to skip to that particular section of interest. This book offers an overview of MANY different health conditions. Someone looking for an in-depth study of one specific health condition may want to search for a book that targets that particular health condition. This book does an excellent job of covering a lot of territory in a single volume.

I approached this book wanting to know what enzyme therapy could offer me and/or my family members with specific health conditions. I wanted to expand my knowledge of enzymes and learn how to apply them to improve our health. I wanted THE recipe for a cure for each of the health conditions reviewed. The book did not quite deliver a neat recipe for each *cure*.

What it did deliver was information on how to test for deficiencies and offered case histories of patents who were treated using enzyme therapy and what worked for them.

The enzyme therapies discussed in this book revolve around two brands of enzymes. (Remember, this info is almost ten years old.

4.0 out of 5 stars enlightening but a cookbook like September 24, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a Licensed Enzyme Therapist from the Loomis Institute of Nutrition I can say that I truly enjoyed this book. It is great to see Lita Lee's clinical approach to writing and how she uses real patient stories to illustrate the importance of Plant Enzymes. However, at times I thought it was a little too much of a cookbook for different disorders and I believe people should be examined by a licensed professional in order to know which enzyme formulas are specific for them. Overall a great read and good for people interested in learning about enzyme nutrition.
