Metabolic Enzymes and Digestive Enzymes

Metabolic Enzymes and Digestive Enzymes.  When most people think of enzymes, they think of digestive health.  While your body has over 75,000 enzymes, only a handful deal with digestion.  Meanwhile, the rest help your body use vital nutrients to work properly and stay healthy.

Metabolic Enzymes and Digestive Enzymes.  So, what exactly are metabolic enzymes?  In order to explain this, let me give you an analogy.  This comparison will detail the vital role that both metabolic and digestive enzymes play in your  health and vitality.  OK, on with the story…

Building A House of Health

Let’s just say you are a general contractor, and you’re building a house.  Of course, that house needs certain building materials.  It needs lumber, drywall, nails, electrical wiring and many other raw goods.  After you look at the blueprints, you order the necessary supplies.  These supplies are the foods you eat, the supplements you take and the medications you use.  After you order the needed supplies, the various vendors deliver the materials to your warehouse.  Basically, you eat, drink or swallow your food, drink, supplements and meds.  Now they end up in your gut, which is the warehouse.

However, in order to build the house, you need to deliver these goods to the job site.  After all, they do no good at the warehouse, right?  So, your warehouse workers load the supplies on to a truck, and the truck delivers them to the job site.  In our example, these warehouse workers are digestive enzymes.

Once at the job site, however, will the house build itself?  Can you just drop off the materials and watch the house magically take shape?  Of course not.  Sadly, many think that is true inside their body.  If they eat it, somehow, magically, the vital nutrition will become part of you.  In both cases, you need workers on the job site to use the right materials the right way and assemble them in the right order to build your dream house.  The same thing is true in your body.  In your body, these workers are called metabolic enzymes.

Building a Healthier You

So, let’s rewind for a second and turn this back into a health and wellness example.  Let’s say you suffer from arthritis and are looking for nutritional support for healthy joint function.  The first thing you need to know is, what are joints made of?  Let me answer that for you.  Your body uses amino acids, vitamin c, and other nutrients to make and repair your joints.  Your body can also use popular supplements like glucosamine as well.  Since amino acids come from protein, you increase your protein intake.  Additionally, you supplement with the right amino acids, vitamin C and glucosamine.

Congratulations!  You just delivered the building materials to the warehouse.  Afterwards, how can you be sure your body will deliver them to the job site?  Additionally, how can you be sure your body will use them for joint health once at the job site?

With the right digestive enzymes, we can help your body digest these valuable nutrients for delivery to your joints.  Afterwards, we can use the right metabolic enzymes to help your body assemble those materials to support healthy joint repair and function.

However, this is only one example.  It’s important to remember that enzymes work this way for every type of nutrition, and for every aspect of your health.  These tasks range from brain health, heart health, hormone health, joint health, blood sugar health, digestive health, bone health, and much more.

Our Enzyme Nutrition Testing

This is why we focus on enzyme nutrition at Redmond Ridge Nutrition and Chiropractic.  In fact, enzymes are the only chemical in the body that can actually do work.  Sadly, as you age, your body’s ability to make enzymes decreases.  Using the right combination of digestive and metabolic enzyme supplements can help your body digest, absorb, make and use your nutrition properly to support health and vitality.

Are you concerned about your health?  Does it affect your job, family or fun?  If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact, did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA?

Supplement Fads cost Americans Millions, and lack research

Supplement Fads.  Did you ever notice that people buy vitamins as trends or fads?   In fact, isn’t magnesium the latest miracle cure?  Before that it was red yeast rice.  Even longer ago, it was probiotics and fish oil.  Sadly, these trends often outpace any research.  As a result, you’re playing roulette with your health.

Supplement fads.

While some of these supplements, like fish oil, have strong merits, many do not.  In fact, the only studies backing red yeast were quite flawed.  In the study, experts took the active ingredient from red yeast rice, and gave patients dosages that were way beyond realistic.  Sadly, all other studies showed no benefit.  However, many flocked to it like it was a miracle cure long before the release of any research.  When you realize that over half of all Americans like you take supplements, it’s scary to think many people are wasting their hard-earned money.

Sometimes, people will make decisions based on preliminary studies.  However, these studies do not validate the supplement’s benefits.  Instead, they only state that the pills may show benefit.  However, experts need to conduct more valid studies to confirm the benefits.  These trends turn out to be the latest supplement fads.

The Real Problem

Why are Americans looking for that magic bullet?  Sadly, because the Standard American Diet is so poor, many turn to supplements.  They hope that the “magic little pills” will replace the nutrition missing from their food.  Unfortunately, this gives some the excuse to eat however they want.  In fact, sometimes this rationale is subconscious.  However, there is no supplement that can replace your food.  This includes the latest supplement fads.  In fact, some supplements can be dangerous.  For example, two huge studies in the 1990s found that beta carotene pills actually increased lung cancer. Likewise, a clinical trial published in 2011 found that vitamin E increased the risk of prostate cancer by 17 percent. However, I need to point out this study “picked on” a certain form of vitamin E, and other forms do not have this problem.

As a result, there’s not short-cut.  The best way to get valuable nutrition is from your food.  Additionally, the best sources are fresh fruits and vegetables.  While some supplements, like fish oil and vitamin D, do have strong merit, you can even get these in your food.  In fact, that’s the best place to get them.

Why We’re Different

So, I bet I know what you’re thinking.  “Come on Doc, you sell supplements too.”  And yes, I do.  However, the pills I sell are quite different.  You see, the pills I sell are enzyme supplements.  They help your body digest, absorb and use the valuable nutrients from your food.  If you get the nutrients from your food, you don’t have to pop pills hoping they will replace your diet.  Additionally, we only make recommendations after thorough testing.  Look at it this way.  Let’s say you want to build a house.  Your food is the wood, concrete, drywall, windows, etc.  The enzymes are the construction crew that will take those valuable materials and make something useful out of them.  Without enzymes, your body cannot use the vital nutrients from your food, or supplements for that matter.

Of course, our testing and solutions are scientific and based on sound medical principals.  In fact, many of my patients end up spending less money on supplements because they need fewer.

We Can Help…

Are you health conscious?  Would you like to get the most out of your food and supplements?  Would you like to save money taking fewer pills?  If so, don’t wait.  In fact, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. If you do, I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  Together, we can determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, I’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Diet and Exercise – We can help you start right

Diet and Exercise – Starting Right:  Both the new year and the Olympics planted the seed of health and wellness deep within many of you.  While this is a good thing, especially if it motivates you to improve your health, changing too much too fast could spell trouble.

Diet and Exercise:  Many of you have made new year’s resolutions regarding diet and exercise.  In fact, they are probably the most popular resolutions people make.  When you add the excitement of the Olympics to the mix, this may increase your motivation to improve your health.

Both of these things can be good if they inspire and motivate you to improve your health.  However, if you attempt too many changes too rapidly, you could end up with health problems, lack of success or worse yet, headed in the wrong direction.

Forget Resolutions

First let’s start off with resolutions.  I’m actually not a huge fan of resolutions.  Why?  It’s actually quite simple.  Resolutions are intentions with no real game plan around them.  It’s like saying “It would be nice to be a famous rock star,” and then doing nothing about it.  For those of you who do achieve your resolutions, congratulations!  But I bet you take the approach I’m about to suggest.  Just what is that approach?  It’s goal setting.  When you set goals, you not only state your desired outcomes, you also break those goals down into smaller manageable steps.  Then you put mile stones around those steps.  This creates a plan that arms you for success.

Slow, Gradual Changes

When changing your diet or starting an exercise program, go slow.  Make gradual changes.  If you join a gym, the first thing you need to do is create the habit of going.  If you’re going to get up early and walk, start by getting up 5 minutes early.  When you’re used to that, increase to 10 minutes, and then 15 minutes etc.  When changing your diet, add health foods before eliminating unhealthy foods.  This will ease the process of getting rid of unhealthy habits.  Exercise and diet in groups.  You can do this by joining existing groups like weight loss programs and fitness classes, or you can start your own.  You can start your own be either recruiting friends and family with like-minded goals, or you can use social media and/or meeting sites to start your own group.

How can Enzymes Help

Actually, enzymes can help several ways.  First, the right enzymes can help your body maximize the nutrients it gets from the food you eat.  Second, the right enzymes may help support healthy energy levels, tissue repair, or even help your body deal with chronic pain properly so that you can exercise and recover from your workouts.

Would you like to know more?

Are you trying to improve your health?  Have you tried before but the results were disappointing?  If so, contact us and set up a consultation or call us at 425-868-0120.  I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.  I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis, which is trusted by both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  This will help me determine if you are a good candidate for care.  If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

DAWC 051 Medicine and Enzymes can work together for healthier you

DAWC 051 Medicine and Enzymes

Medicine and Enzymes: Often times, people look to natural health care as an alternative to traditional medicine.  On the other hand, those who support the medical approach often turn their nose at supplements.  However, did you know they can actually work together?  In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, your host details cases where patients used medicine together with enzyme supplements and diet to address health issues while supporting healthy function.

You see, medicine treats disease.  Conversely, enzyme supplements help stressed organs or tasks work properly.  As a result, there are several scenarios where medicine and enzyme supplements can work together.  Dr. Andy goes through several cases he’s seen in his clinic to illustrate this very idea.  In fact, there are several ways enzymes and medicine can work together.

How they can Work Together

First, medicine, while treating a disease, has side effects.  These side effects can stress other areas of the body.  In this case we can use enzyme supplements to help the stressed organs work the way they’re supposed to.  Second, medicine contains toxins.  These toxins can damage the kidneys and/or liver.  In this case, we can use enzyme supplements to help your body cleanse itself of the toxins.  Lastly, medicine can fight and infection or cure a disease.  In this case, the right enzyme supplements can support your body’s ability to work alongside the medication.  So, the enzymes can support your body’s ability to fight the infection alongside the medication.  Or, the enzyme supplements can support your body’s ability to counter the disease together with the medication.

Often, the disciplines of traditional and natural health are at odds with one another.  This is unnecessary as both have their place.  In fact, both can work together to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
