In this follow-up to his bestseller Enzyme Factor, Hiromi Shinya, MD,  prominent gastroenterologist, shows how bacteria work to produce enzymes  and are thus key to keeping you healthy. He questions the currently popular approach  of fighting disease with more and more pharmaceuticals and explains how his  “Shinya Biozyme” program switches on your immune system to prevent cancer and other diseases.

He changed the world with the Shinya Technique for removing polyps through an
endoscopy instead of invasive major abdominal surgery. Now Dr. Shinya’s discovery of
the body’s own “miracle” enzyme could once again revolutionize health care in America.
Glowing, vital health is within your grasp, once you understand the key to life’s code — the
enzyme factor. Dr. Shinya’s groundbreaking theory will convince the skeptical and add to
the growing debate about the state of nutrition and health care.

Dr. Shinya shows—
• Why Microorganisms Are a Gift to Human Life
• Why Fermented Foods Are Better than Antibiotics
• Why Intracellular Detoxification Is the Key to Rejuvenation
• Why Destroying Pathogens Is a Rat Race We Cannot Win

New Research Confirms—
Most modern Western diseases could be caused by our gut.
1. Obesity
2. Diabetes
3. Heart Disease
4. Depression
5. Alzheimer’s
6. Autism

Trillions of bacteria representing over 400 identified species are part of the Microbiome that is our gut – our own personal eco-system.

New research into our gut eco-system shows that Overweight people have a predominance of different gut bacteria than skinny people.

Bad gut bacteria produce waste that may cause brain plaque and Alzheimer’s.

Herbicides like Roundup may cause derangement of intestinal bacteria leading to neurological impairment such as Autism in the developing brains of young children; 90% of the immune system is in the gut.

Keeping your gut eco-system in balance is the key to a healthy life.
