Publisher's Summary

In The Enzyme Factor, Dr. Hiromi Shinya presents his research, grounded in his 45 years of medical practice in the United States and Japan. This research supports the idea of a miracle enzyme out of which all the enzymes the body needs are produced. He suggests cancer and other diseases occur when this key enzyme is depleted and cannot properly do its job. In this book he clearly shows how what we eat affects that key. Dr. Shinya's science is clearly explained and easy to understand. The suggestions for diet and lifestyle based on this science are simple and easy to follow. Even those who think they know everything about how to eat right will be surprised when they discover what is really healthy.

This simple health regime has led hundreds of his patients, many suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases, to perfect health.

Inside The Enzyme Factor you will discover:

  • How to look younger and delay aging
  • How to live strengthen your body's natural defenses.
  • How to become a healthy 100 year old
  • Misconceptions with many dietary trends
  • What your intestinal traits can teach you about your health
  • Why drinking milk will cause osteoporosis
  • How your body will become oxidized if you eat oxidized foods
  • Why eating the meat of animals that have a higher body temperature than humans pollutes the blood
  • The inseparable relationship between the human body and the land
  • How love activates the immune system

This is a new, important, and affordable approach to health care in America by the world's leading gastroenterologist, and inventor of colonoscopic surgery, who has spent his life in empirical research on the subject of human digestion. If we follow Dr. Shinya's health prescription we will lose weight, be fit, save money, and enjoy a long and healthy life.

Warning: Simply a Vegan Book

I was very disappointed. This book is redundant and can be summarized as follows: don't eat animal meat or dairy, eat mostly vegetarian. There is limited scientific data in the book to back this lifestyle approach, and is based on the authors theory only. There was nothing new and interesting on enzymes to be learned from this listen. I think the author is intelligent and has interesting ideas. But as someone who believes strongly in our ancestral diet and the importance of eating animal protein for our nutrition and vitality, I wish the description made more clear that this book would be so focused on the anti animal protein propaganda.

Informative health gut book

Loved the information about gut health and enzymes. He even discussed how certain water is important and why. Wasn't drawn out and long it was just right length.
I understand now how important enzymes are to our body.

influenced by his own culture

Ironically he attempts to tell us that our cultures diet is wrong but doesn't see the harm in his diet which was influenced by his Japanese culture. I wish he would have avoided his source enzyme theory as fact. If you remove those two fallacious ideals it's a great book. the natural human dies is the same as a chimpanzee and he can't connect that idea... so close but yet so blinded by his own ideals.

Outdated

This is so 2010, very outdated and not just that. Most facts in this are biased. I'm returning this book.

Narrator Miss Reads at times

Any additional comments?

At time the narrator missed read the book. Added in words not written, made “ do not” to don’t etc. and one time forgot the word “not” which changed the whole meaning of text. I am amazed it got the approval from the editors. Sloppy at best. Had I not had the text as well would not have known this. Pay better attention next time.

A lot of good Science but some areas a leap of fai

Really ingesting to hear what the inventor of the colonoscopy had to say about the cut. A lot of things that I believed to the true, so info a little out of date now, well this is a fast moving field. But some really good thought provoking points.

Our "Source Code Fuel" is my belief

I'll keep it short n sweet, haha Steve, I'm a Kangen Alkaline water ionisor distributor, previously a business owner manager, an Electrician by trade, and Senior Electrical Project Manager and through my awakening to consciousness and own researching my/our truth my purpose is to explore every possible angle and detail as to how we as humans have drifted so very far from our intended earth journey into this lower vibration of unhealthiness.
Dr Hiromi Shinya is an Earth God in my perception of beings encountered, not that I've actually met him in person, a blessing to us all, listen well, his words are the simple truth we need to follow to health, wellbeing and longevity. His record keeping of findings through his questionare his customers complete, are priceless and will save people millions of millions of people we just need to help get this knowledge out to our people the masses lead a stray by society ignorance and that dark ill intent force of ego, power and money, oh humanity you do need guidance to put it mildly. His video clips colonoscopies, I mean over 300 000 performed, that's dedication, a genius, this is how our universe intended the human earth journey experience to be fulfilled. I wish him Peace, an abundance of overflowing Love in admiration and respect. Namaste Brother, Bless you in good health to a happy 150 years if it be your wish. My heart felt your pain in your earlier years for your loss, bless her soul till you meet again. We are 1 and we Love You. :)))
