ORGAN PROBLEMS IN AMERICA
According to the U.S. Public Health Service less than 2% of the
Americans are healthy. What is the main cause? Apparently it is
weak, enzyme-depleted organs from lack of prime enzyme nutrition.
Vital Organ Statistics of 288 Million Americans
- 99% have heartburn (1), 25% digestive
- 85% of adults have herpes infection (3)
- 40% will die of Heart and blood vessel
- 15% have kidney and urinary tract conditions
- 9% have chronic liver disease:
8th top killer (6)
- 53,145 patients now waiting for kidney
- 17,295 patients now waiting for liver
- 3,966 patients now waiting for heart
- 16 die per day while waiting
for a transplant (8)
- Transplants costs up to $736,000 for
first year. (9)
"The Ultimate Aim of the Physician: Re-establish
the Instinctive guide to food selection" (10)
Eat Prime Foods First
1. Why do certain animals never need a Veterinarian?
Animals have a long instinctive history, literally millions
of years, of knowing what type of body-building protein
best. They usually prefer organ meats over flesh and eat
it fresh with all the available live organ enzymes. After
catching their prey, lions (the king of beasts) and the
Alaskan brown bear eat the internal organs first (liver
being the first choice).
A wild animal specialist from the London zoo found that
adding organ meats to one cat's diet "has entirely
changed the history of the reproduction of the cat family
in captivity. The addition of the organs to the foods of
the captive animals born in the jungle supplied them with
foods needed to make make reproduction possible. Their young,
too, could reproduce efficiently." (11)
2. Why do certain American Indians never need a doctor
or a dentist?
Dr. Wilder and Keys reported in the Journal of American
Medical Association about habits of healthy people:"A
happy habit of more primitive man was to devour whatever
could be eaten in the carcass of his kill. He thus obtained
the organ meats as well as muscle.The Navajo, for example,
who in contrast to many other Indian groups has
retained his vigor despite proximity to the white man's
civilization, consumes all vestige of the sheep or goat
he kills and exhibits a decided preference for the contents
of the abdomen. He eats the organs first." (12)
In America "the most nutritious parts of every carcass
are seldom chosen by the customer and go to making fertilizer
or feed." (12) The difference
in the teeth and health can be readily seen comparing the
two female Seminole Indians from the Florida Everglades
pictured here. The upper left female had lacked prime enzyme
nutrition while the Seminole on the lower left had excellent
prime enzyme nutrition. (13)
Enzymes Control Your Life
Nobel prize winner in genetics, former enzyme researcher
at National Insitute of Health and Professor of Biochemistry
at Stanford University School
of Medicine says in his book For the Love of Enzymes:
"The DNA itself is lifeless. What gives the cell
its life and personality are enzymes. They govern all
body processes. The malfunction of even one enzyme can be
fatal. Nothing in nature is so vital and tangible in our
life as enzymes, and yet so poorly understood and appreciated
by all but a few scientists." (14)
Dr. Kornberg calls enzymes "The Vital Force."
Enzyme Organ Depletion Shortens Your Life
The faster you use up your enzymes the shorter your life.
"The length of life is inversely proportional to the
rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential of an organism."
Each young organ cell may have 5000 enzymes... old ones
have perhaps 50. According to Dr. Howell, one of the top
researchers in enzyme nutrition, says "Humans eating
an enzymeless diet use up a tremendous amount of their enzyme
potential in lavish secretions of the pancreas and other
digestive organs. The result is
- a shortened lifespan (65 years or less as compared with
100 or more),
- illness, and
- lowered resistance to stresses of all types, psychological
and environmental." (15b)
Enzymes Strengthen Your Organs, Immune System, and Prolong
Drs. Lopez, Williams and Miehlke report in their book Enzymes:
The Fountain of Life that "enzymes are required
for the proper and normal function of every organ system."
"The European experience suggests that the enzymes
have beneficial therapeutic effect on various disturbances
affecting the body's defense system including
- circulatory disturbances,
- cell degeneration and
- viral infections." (16b)
"Cancer cells can grow because of the absence of the
enzymes... The more cancer cells the body produces the more
enzymes the body needs". (16c)
"The enzymes have also been used preventively to minimize
the ill effects associated with the gradually shrinking
enzyme activity of the body during aging." (16b)
Organs Contain the Enzyme Building Blocks to Heal Your
3. What are enzymes? Enzymes are catalysts. Most
are proteins. Amino acids are their building blocks. Every
organ cell contains over 5,000 enzymes. "..vitamins
or co-enzymes.. help vitality, enzymes bring about, step
by step, metabolic activity and specific digestive processes
(general dehydrogenation) and oxidation, prevent intermedial
metabolites of which some are poisonous and may lead to
cataract, stone formation or chronic inflammations."
The most important enzymes in chronic disease - especially
cancer - are the oxidizing (oxygen reacting) enzymes
according to Dr. Max Gerson. His major focus in his book,
A Cancer Therapy is liver enzymes. Why? Because the
liver contains most of the oxidizing Enzymes like catalase,
amino acid oxidase, cytochrome-c etc to fight free radicals
and bring oxygen to healthy cells. What he found was that
"All these are are lower in activity in
(liver cancer) than in normal or regenerating liver."
(17b) In aging and disease cell enzyme
levels could drop in your body by 100 times.

For Getting Healthy: Discover Enzymes
Organs Provide the Essence of Life
Bob Flaws, one of the world's best known authorities on
Chinese medicine says "Most of the foods which Chinese
dietary theory identifies as directly supplementing kidney
yin are animal meats and organs." (18)
Healthy Chinese eat liver, heart, kidney etc.which are
naturally high in vitamins (coenzymes), minerals, enzymes
(amino acid building blocks) to rebuild their loss of enzymes.
"Animal meats and organs are made from the same molecules
and constituents as our own body, our own substance. Therefore,
such animal foods are the most direct way to get the building
blocks and constituents of this yin essence." (18)
Irving Fisher professor of Yale University wrote in Journal
of American Medical Association indicated that the loss
of a natural desire for the most important foods for the
body must be reversed. "Doubtless in the scheme of
nature man was provided with healthy, normal instincts.
But, as often happens in diseased conditions, the food instinct
has sometimes become perverted and cannot be trusted. To
re-establish the instinctive guides to food selection should
doubtless be the ultimate aim of the physician." (10)
Organs Need the Most Red Blood Cell Oxygen (19,
4. Why is this instinct to eat organ meat so important?
Because your organs are the major manufacturers of red blood
cells. Making red blood cells to carry oxygen to all your
cells is the number one job of your body. Your body needs
to make over
2 million red blood cells every second. According to The
Merck Manual a leading medical text "The kidney has
the highest oxygen and glucose consumption per gram and
is therefore vulnerable to toxins affecting cell energetics."
No wonder more people by far are now waiting for kidney
transplants than any other organ. If your body does NOT
get the red blood cells it needs from the food you eat,
it will breakdown the protein enzymes it needs from the
organs and muscles of the body to make red blood cells,
thus weakening your entire immune system. (21)
Organs that Make the Most RBC's
Dr. G. H. Whipple scientifically proved that organ protein
foods were the most effective in making Red Blood Cells.
(22) This discovery won him the Nobel
prize in medicine in 1934. (23)
The Top Five Foods
These top five organs are the basis of Prime Enzyme Nutrition.
Nobel Prize Winner
Healthy People Eat Prime Enzyme Food
The value of prime food selection has been proven over
and over again in the classic nutritional book Nutrition
and Physical Degeneration (13) by
Dr. Weston Price. Dr. Touhy in Journal of American Medical
Association says this about Dr. Price's book. "Is diet
at fault? Weston Price thinks so. All nutritionists should
read his book."
He has gathered information from all around the world.
The illustrations alone would seem to prove his thesis:
native peoples (on the most varied source foods), when they
get a balanced food and avoid overrefinement of flours and
sugar excesses, bear children with properly formed jaws;
the teeth are regularly spaced and both gums and teeth survive."
The pictures of the Seminole Indians are in this book (p.
96, 97) Dr. Price showed that cultures or part of the culture
that follows the healthy instincts of nature by including
prime enzyme organ food in their diet live a life of vitality
and happiness consistently producing healthy offspring and
rarely if ever needed doctors, dentists, hospitals or prisons.
What is Organ Nutrition? "Like Heals Like"
It is the safe ingestion of organ meat used as a therapy
to strengthen a similar weak organ. Medically it is called
Organotherapy and this popular form of treatment is the
basis of Endocrinology. It is founded on Hallion's law which
states: "Extracts of an organ exert on the same organ
an exciting influence which lasts for a longer or shorter
time. When the
organ is insufficient, it is conceivable that this influence
augments its action, and, when it is injured, that it favors
its restoration." (25)
In Chinese empirical medicine a tried and true statement
that directs treatment is: xin xu; bu xin meaning heart
weak:strengthen heart, gan xu; bu gan: liver weak: strengthen
What is the science behind Organ Nutrition?
Medical researchers Kment (26) and
Schmid (27) in two separate studies
used radioactive isotope tracing of various glands to show
how injected glandular tissue cells/nutrients were absorbed
by the blood stream and deposited mainly in the tissues
of the corresponding gland.
What this implies is, when you eat chicken hearts and break
it down in your stomach and process it in your liver, those
prime heart nutrients end up in your blood stream and go
mainly to your heart to rebuild it and make it healthy.
This is the same when you take liver, kidney, spleen or
stomach. The use of Organotherapy has proved to be very
successful in the medical practices of thousands of American
doctors. See some of the research in Part II.
How can you best benefit from Prime Enzyme Nutrition?
"The most important thing in choosing the right medicine
in professional Chinese medicine is to base treatment on
the patient's pattern" (28) says
Bob Flaws an authority in Chinese medicine.
1. First Treat the Pattern
2. Second Treat the Symptoms
Many practitioners and others who treat themselves whether
it is the the use of vitamins, minerals, special foods,
herbs or drugs often base their treatment on the name of
the disease or symptom.
"There is headache medicine, ulcer medicine, constipation
medicine" (28) etc. It is a focus
on the disease or symptom.
In Chinese medicine the focus is first on the whole person
and their particular pattern and second on the symptoms.
"When a medicine provokes unwanted side effects in
some patients, it is because that medicine was not the right
medicine for that person." (28)
So the most effective use in knowing what and how much
prime enzyme nutrition would be right for you is to first
determine your pattern by a Holistic practitioner trained
in pattern discrimination. If you do not have one, go to
"Finding an Acupuncturist" Resource.
For symptoms you can take a Wellness Self Test described
Are their tests to determine your pattern?
Yes. There are three major medical tests to determine your pattern
which can assist the Holistic practitioner in the best application
of prime enzyme nutrition in a precise, predictable and effective
These tests include the CRT 2000, Chinese Pulse Diagnosis and
Hair Mineral Analysis. There is also a Wellness Self Test.
1.What is the CRT 2000?
Computerized Regulation Thermography
- "Scanning for Organ-Energy Status" (29)
- Safe and non-invasive skin temperature test
- Test skin before and after mild cold stimuli
- Patterns of temperature reveal internal organ status
- Hot implies inflammation, Cold-allergic/degeneration
- Checks stress pattern of Heart, Stomach, Liver, Kidney
- Approved by FDA in 1997 for "adjunctive diagnosis
of inflammatory conditions" and 5 other areas
- Approved by FDA for licensed health professionals
2. What is Chinese Pulse Diagnosis?
A test that examines the pulse on the wrists to assess
the pattern of imbalance of the internal organs
- "The chief means of diagnosis employed" (30a)
- Used for the past 4000 years in Chinese medicine.
- Checks the sounds of the pulse for internal organs
- Checks for imbalance of Yin (cold) and Yang (hot)
"The task of the physician was to judge the state
of of the disease-its cause and its duration, whether it
was chronic or acute, whether it would result in death or
in recovery-by the volume, strength, weakness, regularity
or interruptions of the four main varieties of pulse beats."
Some resources for more information on Chinese
3. What is Hair Mineral Analysis?
A scientific test that measures the amount of
minerals and toxic metals like mercury in the hair.
"Over 1500 citations in the world's scientific and
medical literature attest to the usefulness of hair
analysis as a screening diagnostic tool." (31)
Dr. Wilson who has run over 10,000 hair tests says: "Mineral
- Your metabolic rate
- Energy levels
- Stage of Stress
- Glandular activity" (32)
Most important your hair reveals if your metabolism is
too fast (hot/Yang) or too slow (cold/Yin). This is vital
information to create a specific prime enzyme nutritional
program that balances you.
4. What is the Wellness Self Test?
It is test on the web in which you check off the health benefits
you desire. An individualized wellness program including prime
enzyme dietary supplements will than be created and sent to your
personal e-mail address. Length of test a few minutes. If you
