Want to live pain free? Your Number #1 Strategy for treating pain




I want you to know upfront that I am going to share information with you that has been around for centuries but sorely neglected in our modern society and pharmaceutical industry.

Okay, I think most of you would agree that you  don’t nourish your body to the best of your ability on a daily basis, right?


I mean, you get so caught up in comfort, laziness, and the attitude “I am going to be all right. I just do fine. I look great. I know it all.

Newsflash: If your body isn’t where you want it to be, and if you are not feeling at ease with the clothes that you wear or what you see looking back at you in the mirror when naked, then you need to face the reality that you are not taking care of yourself.

And if what’s holding you back is pain, then you have not found the right solution to your problem yet.

Solution to your joint (and other) pain

My goal with this newsletter is to educate you about the simple principle that can make a  difference – no, make that a HUGE difference.

Want to know how to manage, reduce or dissolve pain?

My one word answer: “Enzymes.”

Unfortunately, most people have never heard about enzymes. Many are unaware of the impact enzymes have in regulating the body and maintaining health.

Your vital energy from food and other sources only becomes accessible due to the role that enzymes play in your system as energizer, metabolism and digestive aid, detoxifier, vitamin and mineral helper.

Enzymes slow aging, create better skin, produce fewer wrinkles, help weight loss, slow (or even reverse) chronic conditions, fight arthritis, and are circulation rejuvenators.

Enzymes are substances that are critical for living because they activate every reaction in your body.

Enzymes are responsible for synthesizing, joining together, and duplicating whole chains of amino acids [protein]. They also are responsible for breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats when we digest foods containing these macronutrients.

No body process can take place without energy, and energy cannot be used or produced without enzymes.

Currently, researchers have identified more than 3,000 different enzymes in the human body. Every second, there is an enzyme in charge of a particular function in your body; every second, chemical reactions are taking place that are orchestrated by enzymes. That’s why an enzyme deficiency can have a devastating effect on your metabolism and energy.

Enzymes are the catalysts that make metabolic functions happen; they enable a chemical reaction to proceed, usually at a faster rate or under different conditions (such as at a lower temperature) than otherwise possible. The sum of all these reactions is also known as  your metabolism.

Without enzymes, there would not be chemical reactions. Without chemical reactions, you would not have energy. And there wouldn’t be any vital processes such as breathing, digesting, growth, blood coagulation, reproduction, and so on.

Your blood renews its cells every 3-4 weeks. Blood cells die and new ones are produced. The same cycle happens in all your cells. From birth untill death, your body regenerates itself on a cellular level several times. Can you influence this reproduction process?

Yes, you can. (Hint: Use enzymes.)

When to use Enzymes?

Your body reacts to any kind of injury with a three-step approach: reaction to injury, repair of the damaged tissue and  the renovation of the damaged area.  Overall, the reaction is called inflammation.

The process of inflammation is governed by numerous enzymes. Specifically, it’s  your body’s own proteolytic enzymes that eliminate the inflammatory debris and initiate the resolution of the injury.

You can support and accelerate this process of healing by the use of supplemental proteolytic enzymes. The proteolytic enzymes work thrombolytically to break up blood clots in two ways. First, they activate the body’s own proteolytic system and second they have fibrinolytic activity of their own.

Proteolytic enzymes accelerate the innate process necessary for the healing of a wound. This means that the work of damage control, damage repair, and new tissue construction is carried out more forcefully and precisely and thus, completed more swiftly.

The effects of proteolytic enzymes are:

  • Inhibit inflammation without suppressing your immune system
  • Reduce pain and edema
  • Inhibit clot formation and stimulate clot breakdown
  • Improve the blood supply and increase the nutrition to the tissue Improve blood circulation.

With enzyme therapy, pain stops quickly and the duration of inflammation is rapidly diminished. In addition, wounds heal rapidly with reduced scar formation. Can aspirin or an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory do the same?

Here are the results from a Karate Study where the experimental group received proteolytic enzymes and the second group received a placebo. This gives you  an idea of how effective enzymes can be:

Experimental Control
Hematoma 6.2 days 15.59 days
Swelling 4.25 days 9.82 days
Restriction of movement 5.04 days 12.62 days
Inflammation 3.83 days 10.56 days
Unfit for training 4.18 days 10.23 days
Unfit for work 2.00 days 5.29 days

Now, you understand that you need enzymes for your cellular recovery, energy and to reduce swelling to promote the healing process. The question is, where do you get enzymes from? The simple answer is:  from food.

But what kind of food? First issue: Cooked or uncooked? Did you know that the heat of cooking can kill enzymes? Thankfully, the greatest amount of enzymes can be found in uncooked food, which actually tastes good, too. Centuries ago, this theory really worked with the food supply. However, today, we have a different story. Preservatives, additives, radiation, long-term storage, pasteurization, canning, freezing, drying, and whatever else is out there can kill or highly reduce the enzymes in food.

Next issue: Source. Whether it’s restaurant food, fast food, your favorite food from your mother or Aunty Emma, it’s generally is enzyme deficient. Fewer enzymes in food reduces your ability to maintain optimum levels of cell turnover. So what do you eat?

Tips for increasing your enzyme levels for optimum functioning of cells:

  • Eat seasonal foods. No, not seasonal foods that have been canned, cooked, or transported from one continent to the next, but foods that grow in your backyard. (Okay, locally will do.)
  • Manage your stress. Stress increases the production of free radicals that damage cells, which need to be repaired. Overall, stress uses up more enzymes.
  • Ditch the diet soda: It is dead food. It does not provide you with any enzymes and does not help you to flush out your systems of waste products. It causes more ravage than good.
  • Juice up your nutrition. Use fresh juice raw fresh fruits and vegetables to increaseyour enzyme intake. Smoothies and vegetable juices are a great quick meal.
  • Avoid pasteurized juices. Pasteurization is a heat process; it kills the enzymes.
  • Eat as fresh as possible. Check out sprouts: Sprouted lentils, beans or broccoli are high in enzymes.
  • Support your system. Papaya, pineapple, bananas, and avocados supply enzymes such as papain, bromelain, and lipase to break down protein, carbohydrates, and fats more efficiently.
  • Increase your enzymes by buying them. Ask for “Mulit Enzymes” in your health food store. But your food choices should be always your number one strategy.
