A NEW LEASE—on Life!

A lifesaving genius of our time
“Your body has a miraculous ability to heal itself. . . medicine can support your body through an emergency, surgery can be necessary in certain circumstances, but it is only your own body that has the ability to heal.” (Dr. Shinya, The Enzyme Factor)
There are very few true heroes in the medical community for whom I have utmost respect – those who are willing to take a stand that opposes traditional scientific approaches. One of these amazing doctors is Dr. Hiromi Shinya, clinical professor of surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Chief of the Surgical Endoscopy Unit at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. Dr. Shinya’s main claim to fame is that he is the doctor who actually invented the colonoscope in 1968 and then later the ablation device that snips out polyps during the colonoscopy procedure – a test that has saved countless lives.
And yep, we are going to discuss your intestines once again. The old adage in the complementary healthcare world, “death begins in the colon” is now bonafide truth.
“Looking at the dietary history of cancer patients, I usually find that they have had a diet consisting mainly of animal protein and dairy such as meat, fish, eggs and milk… for women with breast cancer and men with prostate cancer, the probability of discovering an abnormality in their colon is high.” (Shinya, The Enzyme Factor Diet) What really blew my mind is seeing the colons of people with breast and prostate cancer and then again after following Shinya’s diet for only three months! The tissue changes from dark, inflamed mucosa to healthy pink tissue.
It really is quite incredible. There is no arguing that lifestyle changes bring about healing. I urge you to take a look on You Tube. Simply type in: Dr. Hiromi Shinya and you can view his colonoscopies. The connection of diet and disease has never been made more obvious.
According to Shinya the diet that he advocates is able to report clinical results of a 0% cancer recurrence rate. His goal however is to change this to a 0% illness rate by helping people change their lifestyles. It is obviously time to listen up and pay close attention. Better still check out his colonoscopies online on you tube and see the results for yourselves! I am still in awe about these transformations…why and what diet?
The ideal meal should consist of 85% from unrefined plants and 15% from animals, preferably fish; it really is that simple. Plants are full of fiber while animal foods are not, hence affecting greatly the mobility of our intestinal tracts. Chewing one’s food thoroughly – 50 70 times – is also of great importance. First, it helps with weight stabilization since you feel full faster and then will eat less. Second, it can kill parasites inside your mouth before they enter the rest of the digestive system. Third, the food will get digested and absorbed completely thereby reducing the chance of creating toxins from undigested food. Chronic constipation is outright dangerous. Stagnant feces sets the stage for cancer – colon, breast and prostate – as in many cases they are connected.
The worst possible lifestyle habits are excesses of alcohol, coffee and tobacco. Margarine, dairy products and meats are also high on the list. Lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and unrefined grains are preferable. Drinking 6-10 cups of water every day but never with meals and avoiding late night snacks is desirable.
And of course regular exercise is a must so see you at the gym!
