Indians of Northern Canada on PEN
Their Quality of Life
- The physiques of the Indians were superb.
- There were practically no irregular teeth
- Facial and dental arch form was superb
- Nearly complete immunity to dental caries.(1)
- No need for doctors, drugs or hospitals
- Chiefly moose and caribou meat, bark and buds of trees.
During the summer months growing plants.
- I found the Indians putting great emphasis upon the eating
of the organs of the animals, including the wall of parts of
the digestive tract. Much of the muscle meat of the animals
was fed to the dogs.
- An important part of the nutrition of the children consisted
in various preparations of bone marrow, both as a substitute
for milk and as a special dietary ration.(1c)
- 5.8 times as much calcium, 5.8 times as much phosphorus,
7.9 times as much magnesium, 2.7 times as much iron, 1.8 times
as much copper, 49 times as much iodine, and at least 10 times
that the number of fat-soluble vitamins. (1d)

to success in science would be
well advised to learn the history of their field.

The Organ and Herbal Hunters: 2500 BC to 1899 AD: Second Section
We will begin to trace the beneficial use of Prime Enzyme Nutrition
PEN for the Top Ten conditions beginning in 2500 BC to 1899 AD.
In the second section of Part II of this 6 Part Series we will
focus on the second condition of the Top Ten: How to better your
digestion with diet. For over 4400 years medical practitioners
especially Chinese have searched for the key organs and herbs
that could benefit their patients. Our emphasis here is to focus
on the prime enzyme foods mainly Heart, Liver, Kidney, Spleen,
Stomach and the herb Alfalfa that were recommended by these doctors
for various conditions. In addition we have added some healthy
and I hope you will find tasty recipes for you to use or pass
on to someone who desires to benefit their health from using them.
Only those applying
diet for treatment are superb physicians.

Remedy Recipes for Heartburn:
Tasty Gizzards, Hearts and Liver
The dish includes duck gizzard,
heart and liver.
Spicy Chicken Gizzards and Hearts
from Prince Wen Huis Cook:Chinese
Dietary Therapy book page 90.
It has the surprising quality of tasting
European rather than Chinese.
Gizzard a Chinese Snack Food
Duck gizzard called YaZhunGan is a very popular food in China.
The DaoXiangCun Brand comesfrom Shanghai where duck gizzard is
considereda snack food. Many Chinese prefer duck meat overchicken
because it is neutral to cool andthus it will not agravate heat
conditions like sore throat, skin rash, headaches, cancer or any
other inflammatory conditions.
While most of chicken meat is warm, chicken gizzard is considered
neutral and thus it is suitable even for very young children and
will tend to balance any body chemistry. The exception to the
last statement is that if your body is too acid, gizzard like
any other meat will make you more acid. This often is one of the
main reasons you might feel bad after eating meat when before
you felt okay.
Spleen Benefitting Cakes with hens gizzard:
Wrap up 6 g dry ginger and 30 g large-headed atractylodes
root in gauze and boil with 250 g and Chinese Dates for about
1 hour. Discard the gauze and continue to cook until the dats
are well done. Discard the stones. Take15 g ground inner layer
of hens gizzard to which 500 g flour is added. Bake cakes
flour sheets.(3b) - From Dr. Cais book Eating Your
Way to Health-Dietotherapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Stomach Soup: The main ingredient is pork stomach. Beef
stomach may be substituted for pork and is preferred if one has
Pigs Stomach Porridge" Throughly rinse
a pigs stomach of about 500 g and boil in water until 70-80
per cent done. Slice it into threads. Then add to 200 g rice and
cook until porridge is well done and sticky with the pigs
stomach completely done. Take it in 2 doses. This porridge may
be administered for a long period. (3b) - From Dr. Cais
book Eating Your Way to Health-Dietotherapy in Traditional Chinese
Fresh Tea or Fresh Capsule
Fresh alfalfa leaf, stem and flower is available in capsules
and from some food markets. To make tea, steep 1-2 capsules in
cup of very warm water. As Dr. Paul Pritchard says in his book
Healing with Whole Foods, the pleasant taste of alfalfa
is a welcome addition to soups and salads.(8b)
When possible have alfalfa fresh since boiling fresh alfalfa
destroys most of
vitamins (coenzymes). Dr. Pritchard cautions against the use of
alfalfa sprouts and seeds in some cases. Alfalfa sprouts
and seeds, rich sources of
the amino acid canavanine, should be avoided in rheumatoid diseases
such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erthematosus.
Canavanine can ignite inflammations in these condition. Alfalfa
leaf, however, is not a source of canavanine and may be used in
rheumatoid diseases. (8b) Most sprouts are cold by nature
and like most salads reduce circulation of blood and depress enzyme
activity to the stomach adversely affecting digestion.
