The nuggets of wisdom tucked within the pages of this volume are worth MUCH more than the price of t

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.) A visit to a local health food store and a search online turned up many enzyme supplement choices. Potency levels were vastly different among the brands I investigated. Health practitioners may have access to products that are even more potent than the over-the-counter brands. I noticed that most of the formulas listed in this book contained four basic enzymes at the beginning of their ingredient lists. Since I wanted to start taking a broad based enzyme formula immediately, I settled on Enzymedica Digest Gold that was available locally. (MUCH cheaper online.) I contacted the Enzyme Therapy Practitioners hotline listed in the book (1-800-662-2630) to locate a practitioner in my area--Oregon. I was delighted to discover that one of the authors, Lita Lee, is practicing in Portland, Oregon, phone: 503-775-2251. I called her office to obtain more info. For about $235, her office will send out a urine test kit and evaluate the results. The fee includes a one and one half hour office or phone consultation with a 15 minute follow-up. She also sells enzymes. Dr. Lee has about ten more years of research under her belt since she wrote this book. I hope she will update her book and add or delete info

The Enzyme Cure

A very helpful book in understanding how enzymes work in your body and how to help you thyroid to produce them. I have given several copies as gifts.

Great book

This book is excellent, like all books printed by Burton Goldberg. There is about 100 times the health information in this book as in any other health book. By that I mean, you learn about many ways to address each disease discussed, not just by using enzymes.Enzymes can be used to treat inflammation, TMJ, candidiasis, weight problems, headaches, hormonal imbalances, etc. There is virtually no condition which would not be improved by the use of enzymes.The only thing I don't like about the book is the author's emphasis on one brand of enzymes. Readers would be better served to know which enzymes a person needs, not which formula from this brand in particular. I hate to criticize this book, as it is excellent, but this is the only weak point. Constantly referring to certain formulations that are only available by prescription seems to make enzymes unattainable to the average reader.Enzymes are available at any health food store. Ask for anti-inflammatory enzymes, that's usually the only formula they carry, but they are enough to get you started.For more precise info, the book to read is "The Healing Power of Enzymes" by DicQie Fuller, Ph.D. This book gives lists of symptoms that are likely to occur if you are deficient in a particular enzyme. You can diagnose yourself and work on getting the correct enzyme formula.For example, people with high cholesterol often have a lipase (fat digesting) enzyme deficiency. Taking lipase supplements will enable you to reduce your cholesterol level quickly.I definitely suggest you buy this book.

The Enzyme Cure:

"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. Included in the 36 health problems she discusses are arthritis, diabetes, headaches, heart disease, and weight problems. Extensive appendices go into detail about hormonal balancing, especially as it relates to hypothyroidism; commercial enzyme formulations for those who cannot obtain adequate enzymes from diet; a list a enzyme practitioners; and product contact information. Originally a chemist, Dr. Lee spent over 30 years in chemical and medical research before training as a clinical nutritionist in 1980. She has practiced as an enzyme therapist since 1987 and writes extensively in the fields of nutrition, medicine, and the environment. Readers will find the recommendations in The Enzyme Cure useful in achieving and maintaining good health.

New Paths to Health

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.
