These pages contain some of the most useful information if you are interested in transitioning:

Enzymes and Longevity

In an exclusive interview, food enzyme researcher Dr. Edward Howell tells why he believes:

"Enzymes may be the key factor in preventing chronic disease and extending the human lifespan."

Dr. Edward Howell was born in Chicago in 1898. He is the holder of a limited medical license from the State of Illinois.

The holder of a limited practice license is required to pass the same medical examination as a medical doctor. Only surgery, obstetrics and materia medica are excluded.

After obtaining his license, Dr. Howell joined the professional staff of the Lindlahr Sanitorium, where he remained for six years. In 1930, he established a private facility for the treatment of chronic ailments by nutritional and physical methods.

Until he retired in 1970, Dr. Howell was busy in private practice three days each week. The balance of his time he devoted to various kinds of research.

Dr. Howell is the first researcher to recognize the importance of the enzymes in food to human nutrition. In 1946, he wrote the book, "The Status of Food Enzymes in Digestion and Metabolism." Dr. Howell's forthcoming book is entitled, "Enzyme Diet."

This book contains the reference and source materials for the enzyme theories which Dr. Howell has collectively called, "The Food Enzyme Concept." The manuscript for "Enzyme Diet" reviews the scientific literature through 1973. 1t is approximately 160,000 words long and contains 47 tables and 695 references to the world's scientific literature.

In this interview, Dr. Howell tells: What enzymes are, what they do in our bodies, why he believes a state of enzyme deficiency stress exists in most people, and finally, what he believes you can do about it.

"Neither vitamins, minerals or hormones can do any work -- without enzymes."

HDN: What are enzymes?

HOWELL: Enzymes are substances which make life possible. They are needed for every chemical reaction in that occurs in our body. Without enzymes, no activity at all would take place. Neither vitamins, minerals, or hormones can do any work -- without enzymes.

Think of it this way: Enzymes are the "labor force" that builds your body just like construction workers are the labor force that builds your house. You may have all the necessary building materials and lumber, but to build a house you need workers, which represent the vital life element.

Similarly, you may have all the nutrients -- vitamins, proteins, minerals, etc., for your body, but you still need the enzymes -- the life element -- to keep the body alive and well.

Some people think juicing/blending is convenient but it is a false economy!!


Juicing has literally saved peoples live's...It is not false. It's healed people of many major diseases. Part of the reason i'm doing so well with cirrhosis of the liver is BECAUSE of juice.

I take offense to some of this because you are going around praising this stuff and a lot of what you say is not true.

I chew my juices, I even chew my water. It works wonders for me!

Room temperature on fruit as well as water (or anything that is to be eaten) is something I recomend too! :) Im glad things are working well for you Gorilla!! Good luck on your journey!

Thanks and sorry Zack - my mistake for not being clear about the context - I am reporting my personal, subjective experience: I personally find eating whole fruit to be better for my digestive system than drinking juice. However, as Liz says, of course it is possible to consume juice slowly - this would certainly be easier for example for an elderly person who may have other problems, such as dental problems. I completely agree that in such cases juicing can save lives.

On a final note for this post I would say that it seems to me that preserving enzymes is as important as caloric intake, and that when the digestive system is in a relaxed, alkaline state it is more efficient, and it is possible to find that fewer calories are needed.

Awesome dude i'm glad it's working for you. I just don't like it when people make it seem like what's working for them is the only way. I know you didn't intentionally do it, but as you know everybody's needs are different and people gotta accept that.

Keep on going you're doing an awesome job!

This week, fresh figs were on sale at the market. What a treat! I remember in Italy when I was a child I could pick these off the tree. Now, I'm lucky to be able to buy them, even here in Québec.

What was funny however, is the exchange I had with the check out clerk. She had never even tasted one before and she asked me what they were like. I told her they were a little piece of paradise, somethwhat like raspberry jam only juicier. She asked what I was going to do with 4 crates of twelve figs. To which I replied, eat at least one immediately in the car! She laughed.
