Let me share a story explaining why digestive enzymes are so important.
Bill was a bus driver who experimented over a period of years with various nutrients from the health food store. Taking one vitamin at a time, he’d see how each one affected his health.
One evening he reported what he thought were unrelated events. Bill had taken some pancreatic enzymes, and his nasal allergies cleared up.
“Could digestive enzymes be affecting my nasal passages?” he wondered. “I thought enzymes were just for stomach digestion.”
There are different type of enzymes – some are for your stomach only, some are for the pancreas, and some are systemic enzymes, which means they travel all over your body digesting proteins.
So yes Bill, your enzymes can affect your sinuses.
When enzymes are in your bloodstream, they digest foreign proteins outside of the digestive tract – even in the nasal passages and in other tissues anywhere inside your body.
Pollen is approximately 50 percent protein. When pollen enters your body, it is considered a foreign protein that can cause health reactions if not properly detoxified or digested.
Foreign undigested protein is highly toxic to your body anywhere it makes contact.
Thus, digestive enzymes can effectively digest foreign protein anywhere in the body if these enzymes are present and in contact with these foreign proteins. Therefore, these proteolytic enzymes are an integral and necessary part of the immune system and disease recovery.
There is no reason why digestion be confined to your digestive tract only. On the contrary, there is abundant proof that proteins can be digested (broken down into their integral amino acids) any where the proteolytic, or protein digesting enzymes, are present.
So, digestion can take place anywhere in the body where these enzymes are found.
Hum. So if you have allergies, digest them.
Upper And Lower Enzymes
There are two general types of digestive enzymes – upper and lower enzymes.
The upper enzymes stay in your stomach, and their job is to dissolve the food that you eat into mush so your liver can extract the nutrients from your food. The food matter then drops into the intestines for excretion, while your nutrients circulate through your blood stream to feed your cells.
The lower enzymes are the pancreatic enzymes, and they shoot out of the pancreas in order to help break apart your food, such as lactose, protein, and carbohydrates.
These are the enzymes that assisted Bill with his allergies.
Pancreatic Enzymes And Cancer
These enzymes are produced in your pancreas and they enter your small intestines just below your stomach through the common bile duct. Here, they digest foreign protein going through the intestinal tract.
What is not well known is that a healthy person produces an excess of these enzymes over and above the amount needed for digestion of food protein, and the excess is picked up by the blood and carried to every cell in your body.
These enzymes are found in the blood of all healthy people.
People with cancer typically need more digestive enzymes, and as I write in the Richardson Cancer Prevention Diet, this is one of the reasons Drs. Richardson and Krebs identified cancer as a “deficiency disease.”
People with allergies tend to develop cancer at a higher rate than people who are relatively free from allergies. Both are caused by toxicity in the body and by the inadequate elimination of toxins.
Did you know that there has never been a case of cancer at the juncture of the common bile duct and the small intestine?
Cancer has been found above this point in the mouth, esophagus, and stomach. Cancer has been found below this point in both the small and large intestines, and the further down the intestinal tract from the common bile duct, the greater the incidence of cancer.
What enters the intestines through the common bile duct that has such potent anti-cancer effect? The protein digestive enzymes.
If you tend to have allergies, make sure to supplement with a systemic digestive enzyme as a preventative measure. Wobenzyme-N makes one of the best enzymes out there.
