Enzymes Promote Faster Healing

Some of you saw my scans last year, and I’m going to use that to drive home my point. I have had my spine broken twice with 16 broken and crushed vertebras and 11 ruptured—not herniated—but ruptured disks. And do I have a limitation today? No, I don’t.

Why? Enzymes are a big part of it. Activity is a part of it. There is no one magic bullet, please understand that. It’s a lifestyle. And the lifestyle should be nothing more than the focus of vitality. If you want to have it, only you can create it. And you do that by making proper and better choices. It’s wonderful to feel alive.

Some of you know that seven years ago, I took a hit jousting with an 11-foot-long jousting lance—full speed, about 44 miles an hour. It went in my side, not completely in but far enough that I was glad it stopped when it did. Had I not had on chain mail and leather, it would have gone all the way through. It broke the lance in two in my groin, and it blew my intestines out the side. After jousting in two more tournaments, I finally went to the hospital and went through 7½ hours of surgery. They put everything back in, wired me up with 6 feet of wire, and I was back to work three days later.

You heal faster when you have enzymes present because they facilitate regeneration of all tissues as part of their job. Enzymes also facilitate circulation; that’s how they help with the healing, by furnishing the proteins and the other nutrients necessary to repair that tissue. So let’s provide our bodies with these vital enzymes.
