Book Review | The Phytozyme Cure
Author: Michelle Schoffro Cook, BSc, RNCP, ROHP, DNM
Did you make a new year’s resolution this year? I know many people have resolved to lose weight and get healthy and I am included. I need to clean up my diet and eat better and the book that I just finished reading, The Phytozyme Cure, has given me a number of ideas on how to do just that.
The Phytozyme Cure is written by a natural health expert whose revolutionary nutritonal plan is lifechanging. The Phytozyme Cure uses the healing powers of phytonutrients and enzymes to strengthen our immune system, prevent disease and reverse the signs of aging. This program has some wonderful benefits including:
- Faster healing
- Improved energy
- Greater mental clarity
- Increased resistance to illness
- Enhanced immune functioning
- Accelerated weight loss
- A more youthful appearance
For me, I want to get healthy and be free of chronic pain. Weight loss and having a more youthful look would be just icing on the cake. I have read many diet and lifestyle programs over the years and it’s always been a subject I have been interested in. This is the first book I have read on enzyme therapy and I found it very intriguing to learn that the author was in fact herself very sick before she started her program and is now MUCH better. It’s stories like this that give me hope that maybe I can get well too.
The book starts by talking about phytonutrients and enzymes and how they work to provide health and healing. I like how the author explains the WHY so that I can understand how the program will benefit me. Most of the enzymes and phytonutrients were new to me and I’d never even heard of before. The chart with the phytonutrients and what foods they are in and what conditions they help was very beneficial. For me, I need to be eating more chili peppers because it contains Capsaicin which is good for pain disorders.
I used to take digestive enzymes a few years back at the recommendation of my chiropractor. He did a Live Blood Cell Analysis on me and said that I wasn’t digesting my food properly and was probably due to chronic stress. So I know that I would benefit by taking a digestive enzyme! I just never realized how many of them there were and how important they were to our body! The book details all the enzymes and what their function is in the body so I will feel more informed when I go to the health store to find a bottle to take.
I found the chapters Setting the Stage for the Phytozyme Cure and The Phytozyme Cure very informative. They detail the steps you need to take to get set up on the program. I like that it is very straightforward and something that won’t cost me much to implement. I also figured out which Phytozyme Cure type I am from doing the short quizes. There’s three types: Carb, Fat and Fibre. From my score, I figured out that I am the Carb type and need to follow the dietary suggestions for my specific type. I can totally do this and there’s nothing in there that I don’t eat already. I just need to eat more veggies and less of the sugary, refined foods and reduce my intake of caffeinated beverages (ohhhh my beloved coffee!).
The second half of the book contains 30 health conditions and recommendations for each. I would have fainted if vulvodynia had made it in there (it didn’t), but I found the sections on depression, headaches and migraines and yeast infections informative and pertinent to me (oh joy).
Read this book if you are looking to make a lifestyle change to get healthy and look and feel better. I am looking forward to trying it out and seeing how it works for me.
