Enzyme therapy is a treatment method, which involves taking enzyme supplements from plants and animals to facilitate the digestive process, to improve your body’s ability to maintain balanced metabolism and also as an alternative cancer treatment.
Basically, enzymes are natural proteins, which stimulate and accelerate most of the biological reactions in your body.
For example, digestive enzymes, which are generated in the pancreas, break the ingested food and also help in the absorption of nutrients into the blood. Metabolic enzymes help in developing new cells and treat damaged cells in your blood, organs and tissues.
But, there is no correct scientific evidence about the effectiveness of enzyme supplements in treating the cancer. Also, it is not proved that whether enzyme therapy help in making the other cancer treatments work better or improve the quality of life in cancer patients.
You will notice many beneficial effects of enzyme therapy like:
- Purifying your blood
- Strengthening your immune system
- Improving mental capacity
- Cleansing the colon
- Maintaining proper pH balance in the urine
- Improving digestive system
- Relieving infections and diseases
- Reducing the pain associated with fabry disease
- Building proteins into the muscle
- Reducing stress in the pancreas and other organs
- Contracting muscles
You can take enzyme supplements when you are feeling sick or trying to reduce acute and chronic diseases. Also, if you have any of the conditions like obesity, stress-related problems, hypoglycemia, anorexia nervosa, and endocrine gland deficiencies, then you can benefit from taking individual or multiple enzyme supplements. When you are suffering with any acute or chronic disease, then your body uses enzymes more rapidly than normal.
Individual enzymes help to alleviate common skin ailments, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma, allergies, chronic inflammation, circulatory problems, diabetes, fever, parasites, multiple sclerosis, tumors, insomnia, anxiety, depression, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, respiratory diseases, swelling, Candida, ADD/ADHD, and joint mobility, etc.
In enzyme therapy, the supplements are usually given in the form of tablets or capsules. Some enzymes like pancreatic enzymes are also given through injections. The dosage varies depending on your condition.
For treating non-digestive diseases, the supplements are taken an hour before the meals. So, the supplements are quickly absorbed into the blood. For treating digestive ailments, supplements are taken immediately before having the meals. There is no need of any special preparations before starting enzyme therapy. But, it is better to talk to your doctor before beginning enzyme therapy.
You need to follow some precautionary measures before going to take any of the supplements, because some of you can be allergic to some supplements. After taking the supplements, you may notice some side effects like nausea, heartburn, vomiting, acne, gas, diarrhea, and bloating. Drinking enough water and getting regular exercise can eliminate the discomfort from these side effects.
