Dr. Hiromi Shinya began a Health Revolution with his book, Enzyme Factor. Since then demand for more health information resulted in the publication of three more titles, Enzyme Factor 2, The Rejuvenation Enzyme and the Microbe Factor.
Hiromi Shinya, MD, is one of the world’s leading gastroenterologists. His book The Enzyme Factor has sold millions of copies in the United States, Japan and other countries. In the early 1960’s Dr. Shinya pioneered the “Shinya Technique”, the now standard procedure for the removal of polyps from the colon without invasive surgery.. Over a career of 40 years Dr. Shinya has treated thousands of patients. It has been his routine to get diet and nutritional histories from his patients, and by comparing this with the evidence of their colonoscopies, he has developed a set of lifestyle and diet suggestions that will enable us to live a vital, healthy life into a good old age.
An enzyme is a generic term for a protein catalyst that is made within the cells of living things. Wherever there is life, whether in plants or animals, enzymes always exist. Enzymes take part in all actions necessary to maintain life, such as synthesis and decomposition, transportation, excretion, detoxification and supply of energy. Living things would not be able to sustain life without enzymes.
More than 5,000 kinds of these vital enzymes are created in the cells of our bodies, and we also produce enzymes using the enzymes in the foods that we consume daily. The reason there are so many types of enzymes is because each one has a special characteristic and unique function. For example, the digestive enzyme amylase, found in saliva, reacts only to carbohydrates. Fats and proteins are also digested by each of their own distinct enzymes.
We are happy to share with you many products developed by Dr. Shinya to supplement the information in his books.
