Commitment to Enzymes and Good Health

So how does that happen? It’s called discipline. It’s called commitment—to a purpose, the purpose of your eating habits and what you supplement with. All of those will determine whether you can do that or not.

The upper stomach is alkaline, with a pH of 6.5–7, and food remains there for one hour and then enters the lower stomach, which is acid, with a pH of 2.5–5. This is really critical in helping to maintain good pH. What helps to maintain a proper pH in the stomach? Two things are really, really critical: Enzymes, No. 1, and probiotics, intestinal flora, No. 2.

So you have to have intestinal flora and enzymes to maintain a good pH range in the gut. If you don’t, what is the end result of not having good pH? Burping, gas, excessive acid, headache, stomach ache—all those wonderful things that we sometimes experience.

What Exactly are Enzymes?

What exactly are enzymes? Enzymes are the proteins produced by living organisms and are composed of amino acids.

Enzymes are formed by stringing together long chains of amino acids, which have literally millions of different structures.

Enzymes are catalysts that create many essential biochemical reactions. These enzymes are not consumed in the daily processes of the body. However, if you are taking ibuprofen, Tylenol, or an antibiotic; if you are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy; or if you are cooking your food in a microwave, you are destroying your enzymes, and the enzymes cannot build or develop in your system. Without the enzymes, some metabolic processes would happen very slowly or not at all.

Our body has many different kinds of enzymes, but the three major ones are digestive, food, and metabolic.

Stimulate Your Brain with Enzymes

If you build up your enzyme storage reserve and maintain it, you will discover that you will enjoy good health. I get asked constantly how I go into a country, go into the jungle, deal with what I do, come back, and just keep going and going and going and not get sick. I eat more enzymes than I eat anything else, and I have ever since I made Essentialzyme in 1984. That and the oils are my mainstays. I rub oils on and drink them.

When you do that, you reduce the chance of being sick, and you are able to do more, perform more, think better, and think more clearly. One of my young colleagues just two days ago was traveling with me, and he asked me how I remember all the things I have to remember. I told him that it’s easy, because enzymes stimulate the brain for memory retention, memory alertness, and articulating.

Connecting to Emotions Through Writing

Is writing old fashioned? Not hardly! Gary will teach you how to tap into your emotions so you can reprogram those you wish to change—and the key is writing.

Put your iPads away, put your laptops away, get out the pad and pencil—we’re going to do it the old fashioned way. Yup, sorry. The old fashioned way. There’s a very specific reason for it. The mind does not connect to emotion through electronics; it connects to it through energy that is produced from the nimble movement of your fingers wrapped around a pencil shaft. I’m not saying that you can’t put it in your iPod, your laptop, or whatever later; please do so that you can put it in a file, save it, and never look at it again. That’s what we do, isn’t it? But for this class, please, I want you to write, not type; you’ll understand the reason one day if not before class is over.

The Magic of Enzymes

Enzymes are found in every living cell, whether in plants, animals, or humans.

Ancient people believed that plants were magical. They watched them come out of the ground or watched a tree that put on a bud and sometimes a flower; then a leaf; then change color over the spring, summer, and fall. Then the leaves fell off and turned brown.  Ancient people believed that plants were magical because they saw this process.

They also learned that when they killed an animal and hung it in the trees, the longer it hung there and the more it aged, the better flavor the meat had and the more tender it was.

Why did this happen?

Know the reason why is this happen. Read the full story of The Magic of Enzymes.

Essential 7: Summary

The Essential 7™  is a collection of seven of Young Living’s premiere single oils and oil blends. YL’s Doug Corrigan and Karen Boren are guest bloggers for a series sharing information that will teach you the many ways the Essential 7 kit can enrich your life.

DOUG: Over the past few weeks, we have meshed a list of wellness demands with essential oils that really perform well.  A lot of people were probably surprised to find out that the area where oils excel the most, where there’s the most scientific literature, is in the area of emotional support and that these oils profoundly affect our mood, help us to manage stress, and help us to manage other things like anxiety.

KAREN: One aspect of essential oils that is amazing to me is that many oils are calming and uplifting at the same time.

DOUG: You’ve mentioned that before, and it is one of the great things about essential oils. They can calm or lift up because they really have, as you termed it, an inner intelligence that seems to know what it is that your body needs and then provides it.

Essential 7: Peppermint Part 2

The Essential 7™  is a collection of seven of Young Living’s premiere single oils and oil blends. YL’s Doug Corrigan and Karen Boren are guest bloggers for a series sharing information that will teach you the many ways the Essential 7 kit can enrich your life.

DOUG: You mentioned peppermint, Karen, how it impacts us topically—especially with its powerful phytochemical menthol.

KAREN: Peppermint is multifaceted. Anyone who gets to that certain age where joints start creaking a bit will find that that peppermint on the knees is just bliss! I love balsam fir for that as well but peppermint is really the one that has worked on my knees. I think this is a key point for people to know, that oils impact us all a little bit differently. We need to find the ones that work best for us, and like you, I’ve experimented and found out which ones are helpful for me and my body chemistry.
