Live Enzymes - a Must for Good Health
by Dr. Norman Walker
"WHAT'S MISSING IN YOUR BODY? I know that if I do not drink a sufficient quantity of fresh, raw vegetable juices, then as likely as not, my full quota of nourishment-ENZYMES is missing from my body. How about you?
You and you alone are responsible for the result of how you nourish your body. The LIFE in your food is what counts. Your body is composed of billions of microscopic cells. Your very existence depends on them. They need nourishment, live, active nourishment. It depends on you, and on you alone, whether the food you eat results in nutrition or malnutrition!
ENZYMES - The basic key to the efficacy of nourishing your body is the life which is present in your food and of those intangible elements known as enzymes.
In other words, the element which enables the body to be nourished and live, that element which is hidden within the seeds of plants and in the sprouting and growth of plants is a life principle known as enzymes.
Enzymes have been described as complex substances which enable us to digest food and to absorb it into our blood. It has also been claimed that enzymes digest cancers.
In order to perform such classified operations, enzymes would require a body of some kind, a physical or material organism. This they do not have, any more than electricity with its multitude of phases, such as voltage, amperage, wattage, etc., does not have substance, but it activates substances of which it is not an integral part. Thus enzymes are not 'substances.' Enzymes are an intangible magnetic Cosmic Energy of Life Principle (not a substance), which is intimately involved in the action and activity of every atom in the human body, in vegetation, and in every form of life.
Once we get this clearly into our consciousness, we will know definitely why our food should be intelligently and properly selected, and why it should be raw, uncooked and unprocessed.
We cannot have life and death at the same time, either in connection with our body, or with vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. Where there is life, there are enzymes.
Enzymes are sensitive to temperatures above 118 degrees Fahrenheit [We teach 107 degrees]. Above 120 degrees enzymes become sluggish, just as the human body becomes languid and relaxed in a hot bath. At 130 degrees, with enough time the life of enzymes is extinct. They are dead. (note: Enzymes are not destroyed instantly, it takes heat over time to destroy all enzymes.)
Within seeds, enzymes are in a dormant state, and under proper conditions will remain in a state of suspended animation for hundreds and thousands of years.
Life as LIFE cannot be explained, so we describe enzymes as a Cosmic Energy Principle or vibration which promotes a chemical action or change in atoms and molecules, causing a reaction, without changing, destroying or using up the enzymes themselves in the process.
In other words, enzymes are catalysts and as such they promote action or change without altering or changing their own status.
With this brief explanation, you are better able to appreciate the value, reason, logic and intelligence of choosing the food with which you intend to nourish your body, not only food in the raw state, but also food used and prepared so that it will nourish the cells and tissues of your body in the most speedy and efficient manner possible.
The great Law of Life is replenishment. If we do not eat, we die. Just as surely, if we do not eat the kind of food which will nourish the body constructively, we not only die prematurely but we suffer along the way.
Our body needs to be supplied daily with the same elements with which it is composed. Due thought, attention and consideration to the other two parts of our being, namely our mind and spirit, provides our total life with complete health.
We can eat the finest and most constructive food in creation, but this will not prevent the disintegration of the body if resentments, fear, worry, frustration and negative states of mind are permitted to obsess us.
Health is the indisputable foundation for the satisfaction of life. Everything of domestic joy or occupational success must be built on body wholesomeness and vitality..."
Dr. Walker was born January 28, 1867 and I have been told he died in December 1985. Dr. Walker began his journey into nutrition in his early 50s after he became very ill. At the suggestion of Dr. H. William Baum, a chiropractor in New York City, Dr. Walker rejected the medical route, turned his back on the Sad American Diet of his day, and changed his diet to raw vegetarian. Not only did he recover from all of his physical problems, but he went on to live to the ripe old age of almost 120.Great juice products containing enzymes
