Digestive Enzymes: A Magic Bullet
More than 70 million people today suffer from digestive upsets at least once a week. Indigestion, bloating and heartburn are common complaints. Almost all digestive upsets have two main causes: inability to properly digest food and festering bacteria.
You can eat all the healthy food and take all the vitamins in the world, but unless digestive enzymes are present your process of digestion will remain incomplete. Should you have any digestive issues consider the following four approaches. *
- Digestive Aid
- Liver Cleanses
- Hydrochloric Acid (Caps or Drops)
- Dr. Clark Lugol’s Stomach Saver
The most immediate solution is to take Enzymes (including HCl) and the most comprehensive solution is to cleanse. *
Deficiency of Digestive Enzyme can Cause Several Symptoms such as:
• Gas and flatulence
• Food allergies
• Acid reflux
What digestive enzymes do
The digestive enzymes that we are born with occur naturally in the body. Their purpose is to aid the food enzymes (already present in raw food) in digesting your food. *
Digestive enzymes are secreted from the pancreas into the stomach and small intestine. They are responsible for breaking down the foods we eat and delivering the resulting nutrients to every cell of the body. They also flush out toxins and protect us from bacteria.*
Dr. Edward Howell, who has written two books on enzymes theorizes that humans are given a limited supply of enzyme energy at birth, and that it is up to us to replenish our supply of enzymes to ensure that their critical job get done. "The length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential of an organism. The increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential."
In other words, the more enzymes you eat, the longer you live in the comfort of good health.
Digest Decaying Fecal Matter in Colon
There is another advantage to being sure that foods are well-digested. When foods are not well-digested, they remain in the stomach and can rot and putrefy.
This results in a buildup of waste in the colon. This fecal matter begins to decay, producing bacteria and toxins. The toxins eventually seep through the bowel wall, where blood capillaries pick them up and distribute them throughout the body. This can result in health problems.
These problems include constipation, stomach bloat, poor digestion, gas, fatigue, weight gain and weight loss, headaches, and more. Using digestive enzymes ensures that your foods are more completely digested, helping to eliminate potential problems due to toxins.*
Raw or Cooked Food?
Unfortunately, cooking destroys enzymes. Digestive enzymes are killed when we cook our food at over 118 degrees. There are no living enzymes in cooked foods. *
Dr. Clark did not want people with severely depleted immune systems to eat raw foods because she wanted to protect them from any possible bacteria and toxic acids. *
However immediately after regaining moderate immune system power she recommended people to take raw juices provided they sanitized their veggies with Lugol’s.*
Gas and bloating
Undigested foods tend to rot and ferment in the intestines and colon, feeding bacteria that create gas as a by-product. The better you digest your food, the less these bacteria have to feast on, thereby reducing the amount of gas they produce. *
A deficit of HCL causes bacteria to go past the “acid barrier” (stomach) and fester in the intestine. Raw and Whole Fennel and Turmeric powder in capsules help tame those microorganisms that tend to run amok in the bowels.*
Fatigue after meals
If you don’t have enough digestive enzymes to break down the food you eat, your body has to work a whole lot harder. Digestive enzymes make this easier.
Undigested Foods in Colon
Most bowel problems are caused by a build-up of toxins in the bowels. Where do these toxins come from?
The answer is undigested foods, which provide a veritable banquet for the hordes of microorganisms that make their home in the large intestine. Dr. Kelley's Digestive Enzymes may help reduce the amount of undigested foods that enter the colon and may also help to break down the toxic build-up on the colon walls. In addition take Dr. Clark’s parasite, kidney and liver cleanses in addition to the liver flushes and enemas.*
Heartburn and Indigestion
One of the most surprising benefits of supporting your body’s ability to maintain optimum pH is that heartburn and indigestion may stop. It is a common belief that too much stomach acid causes heartburn.
This, according to leading MDs, is not the case, especially for people over 40 years of age. The patent-medicine industry has not put any money into researching this thoroughly, so it is still a theory.*
According to Dr. Jonathan Wright, author of “Why Stomach Acid Is Good For You,” in the majority of cases, too little acid causes heartburn (not too much acid). If you feel that the acid level in your stomach is too low then you can increase it by taking hydrochloric acid supplements.

Problems Digesting Fat
Bile emulsifies fats (separates it into small droplets) so they can mix with water and be acted upon by enzymes.*
A healthy level of bile can possibly reduce gallstones and allow for greater absorption of vitamin K, A, D and E and help maintains a healthy liver function. Betaine HCL also helps with digesting fat.*
Problems Gaining Weight
"The healthy functioning of the thyroid is essential to maintaining metabolism and preventing the accumulation of body fat," writes Burton Goldberg in Alternative Medicine. If adjusting your diet and exercising more hasn't helped you reach a healthy body weight, you might want to look into taking iodine. Cleansing is also a critical tool.*
Problems Digesting Protein
Hydrochloric acid (HCL) converts pepsinogen to pepsin which breaks down proteins to peptides. HCL maintains a pH in the stomach of approximately 2.0. It also dissolves food and kills microorganisms.*
Some research suggests the theory that people with a wide variety of chronic disorders, such as allergies, asthma, candida albicans and gallstones, and acne do not produce adequate amounts of stomach acid.*
Why do some people get food poisoning and others don’t, even when eating the same food? The answer is that some people’s digestive systems are more robust because they contain more HCL. Food poisoning should not be left to run its course because you don’t know where it will take you. Stop it as soon as you detect it. “Dr. Clark Lugol’s Stomach Saver” provides a simple and amazingly effective home remedy to maintain good health despite unsanitary foods even after the fact.*
You may have sensitivity to certain foods. Many people see those cleared up with a series of liver flushes. A good comprehensive and holistic dental care is also essential. Blood tests have become increasingly useful in determining which foods you are allergic to, take advantage of those.*
Sugar inflames all digestive discomforts and can even be the primary culprit. Limiting your sugar intake is easier said than done. To ease your cravings try taking chromium, start with one capsule and take up to 5 per day. Other blood regulating supplements include cactus, cinnamon and bilberry.*
