Cell structure and food balance

  1. 1. Cell Structure and Food Balance Fermentation is the chemical transformation of organic substances into simpler compounds with the help of enzymes and complex organic catalysts. These enzymes and organic catalysts are produced by microorganisms such as bacteria, molds, and yeasts. Enzymes break down complex organic molecules into smaller compounds and nutrients. Protease, amylase, and lipase are three important enzymes.  Protease breaks down huge protein molecules into polypeptides and peptides, and then into amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of the body, and are critical to cell rejuvenation and are necessary for human growth.  Amylase works on carbohydrates to reduce starches and complex sugars to simple sugars or glucose, which fuels all of the body’s processes. Increased amounts of amylase may indicate a problem with the pancreas or gall bladder.  Lipase hydrolyzes complex fat molecules into simpler fatty-free acids. It helps in the absorption and digestion of nutrients in the intestines. As some foods are digested, they ferment and produce harmful gases that lead to indigestion, bloating, gas, etc. Digestive disorders are caused by various kinds of undigested food masses. As undigested food ferments and decomposes, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Food combinations that lead to fermentation and putrefaction are:
  2. 2.  Proteins and acid food combinations – Acidic foods slow down the secretion of the digestive acids required for protein digestion. Undigested protein putrefies in bacterial decomposition, and produces some potent poisons.  Desserts and meals combinations – Desserts after a meal become heavy in the stomach and lead to minimal, if any, digestion. This results in fermentation and bacteria that turn these foods into alcohols, vinegars, and acetic acids.  Acids and starch combinations – Acids neutralize the alkaline medium required for starch digestion. The result is fermentation and indigestion.  Tomatoes with potatoes - The acid of the tomato destroys the alkaline medium necessary for the action of ptyalin. Ptyalin simply cannot function in a highly acid environment, and the potatoes must wait until they reach the small intestine for further digestion. Meanwhile, fermentation takes place in the stomach and the bacteria will turn the potatoes into alcohol and acetic acid. The products of fermentation and putrefaction that result from bacterial decomposition cause the following: - Poisoning of the body when absorbed by the small intestine. - Irritation of all tissues with which they come into contact. - Gastric irritation can progress to inflammation, then to ulceration, and finally, to cancer. Short-term effects of incorrect food combinations include:  Nausea and vomiting
  3. 3.  Foul odor from breath or excrement  Bloating, abdominal tenderness and stomach cramping  Gas, indigestion/heart burn  Headaches and vertigo  Restlessness and insomnia  Diarrhea and/or constipation Long-term effects of incorrect food combinations include:  Skin eruptions (eczema, acne, dermatitis)  Neuritis and neuralgias  Epilepsy  Anemia  Toxemias (e.g. gout)  Acute mental disorders Over-eating is one of the primary causes of obesity, and is one of the main factors in the degeneration of the human body. Moderate eating of the right foods is the key to disease-free longevity. ____________________________________________________________ ___________ Dr. Fred Bisci is an organic and raw food nutritionist with over 40 years of experience helping people improve longevity and reduce the risk of diet related illnesses.
