Thyme To Heal

Enzymes are the spark of life. Without them, life would not exist. They are the workers that make your body function.  Enzymes activate our muscles, stimulate our nerves, make our hearts beat, keep us breathing, and even help us think.

    If you eat food that is steamed, boiled, roasted, broiled, fried, stewed, canned, pasteurized or even microwaved, you need food enzymes. When food enzymes are missing, the body is forced to produce all the enzymes necessary for digestion. This puts unwarranted stress on the organs of digestion which must rob enzymes from your immune system to digest your food.

    Digesting food is one of the most energy-consuming tasks performed by the human body on a regular basis. This often explains why we feel tired after eating. We live in a modern age where food needs to be convenient and nutritious, so taking plant enzymes with each meal will help digest your food, lessen the work of your digestive system, and any stress on the digestive organs.

    Over 80 billion dollars are spent every year by consumers to relieve heartburn, excess acid, bloating, and other symptoms of indigestion. Fatigue, diarrhea/constipation, gas, headaches, colon problems, hardening of the arteries, and high cholesterol are just a few of the conditions that have their root in a shortage of enzymes. All of these symptoms can be attributed to poor digestion. If allowed to progress, however, chronic degenerative diseases may become evident in later years. If you are showing any signs of these symptoms, it is possible that you already are enzyme deficient.
