Enzyme Therapy: An Argument Against Allopathic Treatment

1032 Words5 Pages
The views which are often expressed against allopathic, notwithstanding the above facts, are due to the side effects of allopathic treatment. It is this aspect of allopathic treatment which Hahnemann had emphasized when he said that allopathic treatment supplanted another illness while curing one. Unlike antibiotics and some conventional allopathic medicines, homeopathic treatment does neither hamper digestion, nor lower body 's resistance; they do not cause allergies or any damage even if it is taken over a long period. Those who speak against allopathic treatment also tend to deny such claims as a longer life span due to the advances of medical science. They say that man contracts illness due to abuse of his own body, and due to his lack…show more content…
It is an important step in restoring health and well-being by helping to remedy to digestive problems. Food (plant) enzymes and pancreatic (animal) enzymes complement to boost digestion and absorption of essential nutrients. Enzymes are protein molecules which are used (like catalysts) by different parts of the body to perform all of its chemical reactions converting substrate into product. Catalysts are simple inorganic molecules. The human body, typically, makes 22 digestive enzymes capable of digesting carbohydrates, sugars, proteins, and fats. They include enzymes produced by the stomach, pancreas, small intestine, and the salivary glands of the mouth. The energy-producing properties of enzymes are responsible for not only the digestion of nutrients, but their absorption, metabolization, transportation, and elimination as well. The function of the enzyme is to catalyze chemical reactions within the cells so that all physiological processes can occur. The process of digestion starts in the mouth, then makes its way to the stomach and large intestine, and concludes in the small intestine. At each step along the way, specific enzymes break down specific types of food. This process is chemically balanced as each site along the digestive tract has a different degree of acidity that allows certain enzymes to function while restraining others. Each specific enzyme can bind to only one specific substrate, or group of allied chemical substances. After leaving the stomach, food pulp enters the upper portion of the small intestine where the pancreas (digestive organ that feeds enzymes into the gut) provides pancreatic enzymes to further break down the
