"However, this can be done very efficiently with protease (proteolytic enzymes) instead of the usual drugs. Once in the bloodstream, protease hydrolyzes (digests) the fibrin network and enhances blood flow. Additionally, these same proteases have been known to stimulate phagocytes (cells that ingest foreign particles and debris) and accelerate elimination of work by way of the lymphatic system."

"Resveratrol, a natural substance found in peanuts and grapes, may also relieve sinus symptoms by inhibiting certain enzymes called COX (cyclooxygenase) enzymes. COX enzymes make prostaglandins—enzymes of inflammation that produce swelling. Eating these nutrients may help to inhibit these enzymes and improve sinusitis. FOODS THAT HELP FIGHT SINUS INFECTIONS For those with sinus problems or respiratory ailments (or any chronic illness, for that matter), healthy nutrition is "fuel" for the body. When you eat a nutritionally well balanced diet, many other factors fall into place."

"But antioxidants do something else for us as well: They stimulate the liver to produce the enzymes necessary to break down the antioxidant itself, enzymes that, once produced, go on to break down other compounds as well, including whatever toxins happen to resemble the antioxidant. In this way antioxidants help detoxify dangerous chemicals, including carcinogens, and the more kinds of antioxidants in the diet, the more kinds of toxins the body can disarm."

"If the pancreas is out of whack, low blood sugar and lack of enzymes could result. A lack of pancreatic enzymes will lead to trouble when you ingest fatty foods: You may experience bloating or belching an hour after a fatty meal, or your may have a feeling of fullness. If you lack pancreatic enzymes, there are supplements that can help. Preparations of pancreatic enzymes isolated from animal sources are used with other enzymes including bromelain, which comes from pineapple, to aid digestion. These supplements are available at health food stores."

"Think of enzymes as taxis that take you from the airport to your home. Some enzymes go slowly and some go very fast (genetics and nutrients determine their speed). For example, if there is a metabolic rush hour caused by too many medications and toxins to metabolize, a metabolic traffic jam may result. If this occurs, other metabolic routes or detours will develop and you may overproduce possibly harmful metabolites. Similarly, if you inherited a particularly slow enzyme pathway, or are deficient in B vitamins or other nutrients, an enzyme may not work well and the same problem can arise."

"First, it releases enzymes that break down the used neurotransmitters. I like to think of each enzyme as a little Pac-Man chomping the used neurotransmitters. The other mechanism that prevents neurotransmitter overload is a sort of vacuum cleaner that sucks up the used messengers and deposits them back in the sending cell to be recycled for later use. These "vacuum cleaners," called reuptake pumps, are, like the Pac-Man enzymes, usually very effective in doing this cleanup. Your brain not only wants things cleaned up, it also wants them orderly and organized."

"Pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen inhibit the Cox enzymes as they reduce pain. At the same time, these drugs often wreak havoc in the stomach and, in the worst cases, cause bleeding ulcers that kill. Merck and Searle scientists developed the new drugs on the theory that there were two kinds of Cox enzymes, Cox-1 and Cox-2. They theorized that a drug that selectively blocked only the enzyme known as Cox-2 would be far less harmful to the stomach than drugs like aspirin. A safer anti-inflammatory drug would be an extraordinary and life-saving breakthrough."

"Glycation is a biochemical process that involves a series of nonenzymatic reactions (those that don't require enzymes to make them happen) between proteins and/or certain lipids (fats) and glucose that result in the development of the toxic substances we mentioned earlier, AGEs—advanced glycation end products—and ALEs—advanced lipoxidation end products. If you've ever made toast, then you've experienced glycation firsthand. Toasting bread involves the Maillard reaction, named after the French chemist who investigated this chemical reaction in the early years of the last century."

"Research suggests that DHEA improves glucose metabolism by increasing glucose uptake by cells as well as by decreasing the gene expression of certain enzymes involved in glucose production in the liver. Experimental studies in both animals and humans show that DHEA supplementation improves insulin sensitivity and reduces obesity, while other animal studies indicate that DHEA increases beta-cell mass and improves glucose-dependent insulin secretion in aging. Published study data indicate that testosterone improves insulin sensitivity in men."

"Their still-developing immune systems might mistakenly treat the toxins as naturally occurring enzymes or hormones. And because children are growing and developing so fast, dangerous cell mutations can multiply at a faster rate. Children are also less capable of detoxifying and excreting chemicals than adults. Their blood-brain barrier is still porous and allows more chemicals to reach their brains."

"Digestive enzymes. In 2000, Andrew Wakefield, M.D., reported evidence of chronic colitis in 88 percent of sixty autistic children he monitored. More recently, Arthur Krigsman, M.D. (IMFAR 2004, personal communication) conducted a retrospective review of 143 autistic children and found histological tissue evidence of iliocolitis, or inflammation in the ileum, colon, or both, in 73 percent. In other evaluations of autistic children, including upper GI endoscopy performed by Dr."

"I monitored his liver enzymes, nutrient levels, detoxification ability, and gastrointestinal function. In medical jargon, I was looking for elements of co-morbidity-problems that existed at the same time as his autism, without necessarily being related to it. Autistic kids tend to have a number of co-morbidities. At least, that was my thinking back then, and that perception is still conventional wisdom among most physicians. However, if I'd known then what I know now, I would have realized that almost all of Kyle's ancillary problems were actually contributing to his autism."

"It's simply a chemical reaction to lactose, or milk sugar, which occurs among people who don't have enough of the enzymes that are needed to break down lactose. Thus, many people can test negative for milk allergy, but still react strongly to dairy products. This happens very frequently. Ten to twenty years ago, most allergists were extraordinarily skeptical about the potential harm that could be done by sensitivities and intolerances. They often told patients that they were just imagining their reactions. These days, the trend is gradually changing."

"Scientists have discovered the crucial enzymes that allow the Ap fragments to accumulate and have developed ways to modify these enzymes. When the enzymes are manipulated in the mouse models, plaques do not form in the animals' brains. Now the trick will be to develop drugs that will alter the enzymes safely in people. The race is on as we write. The statins, mentioned earlier, are another exciting development. It is not clear why they may delay the appearance of Alzheimer's disease."

"It works from a desire to kill something: to inhibit bacterial enzymes, alter cell membrane permeability, or interfere with the nutrition given to the cell or the synthesis of DNA.4 In order for the patient to get better, the offending agent has to die. Many pioneers of mind/body medicine in the treatment of cancer, such as Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Carl Simonton, and Australian psychiatrist Ainslie Meares, encouraged their patients to use vivid forms of mental imagery—a metaphoric representation of their illness—to enhance their healing."

"Some probiotics produce enzymes that are harmful to bad microbes. The enzyme activity of probiotics has been found to help fight infectious disease, lactose intolerance, immune system deficiencies, and urogenital and vaginal diseases. Probiotics Produce Antimicrobial Effects Some probiotics have antimicrobial effects. Many of the probiotic strains of bacteria are able to produce substances that kill bacteria, called bacteriocins such as lactocidin, reuterin or acidophilin. These bacte-riocins have antimicrobial activities that reduce the growth of disease-causing microbes."

"A diet rich in amino acids (found in beans, corn, meats, nuts, seeds) ensures you have the nutrients needed to build these enzymes. There is yet another important factor involved in your ability to get bone-building About 70% of North American adults suffer nutrients to your bones pro from maldigestion, malabsorption, digestive' biotics.

"Probiotics can help produce enzymes that prevent this reabsorption of cholesterol. The Probiotic Connection Elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Results from early studies suggest that the consumption of yogurt, a natural source of probiotics, contributes to a reduced cholesterol level in the blood. A number of studies since have found that use of probiotics can reduce cholesterol levels by as much as 22% to 33%. How do bacteria in the intestinal tract have anything to do with cholesterol?"

"Probiotics produce enzymes that promote health. • Probiotics produce antimicrobials that kill bad microbes. • Probiotics support the health of cells that line the intestines. • Probiotics work synergistically. • Probiotics positively affect the immune system. • Candida, E. coli, H. pylori and Salmonella can all be inhibited by probiotics. A war is waging. The battles have commenced. Inside your body lie miles of intestines, bunched, curled and crammed into your abdomen. This is the battle ground of a life-long war—a war between good and evil."

"CoQIO, L-carnitine, and D-ribose can't work well if the enzymes that process them are poisoned. From Dr. Roberts's Chelation Files I have seen patients with otherwise inoperable disease benefit greatly from IV chelation therapy that I performed as a last-ditch effort. These were situations in which nothing else worked and I was totally stuck. My first chelation case was about ten years ago, and the experience sold me on the technique. Mary, a sixty-five-year-old patient, had had bypass surgery following a heart attack. The surgery failed. Her symptoms returned. She had constant angina."

"Proinflammatory substances gather in a seething commune of cytokines, enzymes (proteins responsible for stimulating other chemical reactions in Stage 4 Stage 5 Foam cells The lesion grows ... the body), and growth factors. They go by such names as interleukin-1 (IL-1), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-6 (IL-6), macrophage colony-stimulating factor, and various interferons. These chemicals increase the stickiness of the endothelial wall and make it even more permeable to white blood cells and LDL cholesterol, which continue to enter and burrow inside."

"The longer that a food is in the dehydrator, the more potential exists for the enzymes to be destroyed, even at lower temperatures. Low-temperature dehydration for sustained time, as practiced for years by the live-food community, may not be safe because sustained low-temperature dehydration encourages bacterial growth and fermentation. At the Tree of Life we feel that the new approach is both safer and more efficient. This technique of dehydration is only recommended for the Excalibur dehydrator because of the way it dries food. First the Excalibur has the Parallexx?"

"While it might seem logical to try to prevent the beta- and gamma-secretases from being present in the brain, the potential of the secretases as therapeutic targets for AD is dampened by the fact that enzymes such as gamma-secretase are involved in various processes throughout the body, including the differentiation of stem cells in bone marrow that develop into red blood cells and lymphocytes. Scientists have tried inhibiting gamma-secretase in mice, but some trials have resulted in toxic effects."

"Cells possess DNA-repair enzymes that replace nucleotide (abbreviated by A, C, T, G) pairs, but it becomes an increasingly uphill battle as we age. The damage that free radicals inflict on our microscopic building blocks compromises cell function, organ function, and potentially the functioning of major body systems. In humans, it is thought that this free-radical damage can accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and age-related degenerative diseases like AD."

"In the cell, RNA is required to maintain constant levels of important proteins, including enzymes. Ribose. See D-ribose. Salvage pathway. A metabolic pathway used in heart, skeletal muscle and other tissues to preserve energy as adenine nucleotides are catabolized. D-ribose is required to allow this pathway to function. Total adenine nucleotides (TAN). A sum of the cellular concentration of ATP, plus ADP, plus AMP. TAN defines the size of the energy pool within a cell. Vasodilation.
