World renowned gastroenterologist, Dr. Hiromi Shinya has spent all his life doing empirical research on human digestion. He revolutionized medicine when he discovered the miracle enzyme, the fundamental of the a healthy gut.
Japanese-born Dr. Hiromi Shinya is the inventor of colonoscopic surgery, contributing to the elaboration of the utensils that doctors today use to perform this medical procedure.
- He has cured 300,000 patients, amongst which presidents, prime ministers, movie stars and famous musicians.
Dr. Shinya’s theory is that the human body has over 5,000 enzymes that have around 25,000 different functions. He sais:
“I believe that all this different enzymes stem from a fundamental enzyme, the source-enzyme, that is, probably a limited resource. If we exhaust these source-enzymes, we will not have enough of them to help repair our cells appropriately; thus, in time, cancers and other degenerative disorders can develop.”
Aged 84, Dr. Shinya is currently surgery professor at the Albert Einstein Medical College in New York and the head of the Endoscopic Surgery at the Beth Medical Center in Israel.
Dr. Hiromi Shinya’s 7 Golden Rules for a Healthy Gut
Use these rules to preserve the miracle enzyme in your body and to enjoy a long and healthy life.
1. A Good Diet
85-90% cereals, vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts and seeds.
- 50% whole cereals, brown rice, whole pasta, barley, grains, whole grain bread, beans, soy beans, lentils, pinto beans, lima beans, green peas, white, pink and even black beans.
- 30% green and yellow vegetables, including legumes: potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, seaweed and algae.
- 5-10% fruits, seeds, nuts and peanuts.
10-15% animal origin protein (should not exceed 85-115 g per day)
- Fish (any type, preferably small fish because large fish contain larger doses of mercury)
- Poultry: chicken, turkey, duck (in small quantities)
- Beef, lamb and pork should be strictly limited or completely excluded.
- Soy milk, cheese, rice milk, almong milk.
Good to have:
- Herbal teas
- Yeast flakes (good source of Vitamin B complex and minerals)
- Pollen and propolis
- Enzymes supplements
- Multivitamin and mineral supplements
Limit or avoid:
- Dairy products: cow milk, cheese, yogurt, other milk products.
- Green Japanese tea, Chinese tea, English tea (no more than 2 cups per day)
- Coffee (Here are a few coffee alternatives you can try)
- Sweets and sugar (And a list of health-friendly sugars)
- Fats and oils
- Regular table salt (use sea salt, because it contains minerals in ppm concentrations)
Other Diet Recommendations
- Don’t drink or eat anything 4-5 hours before meals.
- Chew every food bite for 30-50 times.
- Don’t eat anything in between meals, except 1 whole fruit. You can eat one piece of fruit 1 hour before bedtime, if you’re feeling hungry and can’t sleep, because it will digest quickly.
- Eat fruits and drink natural fruit juices 30-60 minutes before meals.
- Eat whole, unrefined grains and cereals.
- Consume more raw or lightly steamed foods (heating up foods above 48 C will destroy enzimes).
- Don’t eat oxidized foods (fruits that have developed brown spots have started to oxidize).
- Eat fermented foods.
- Keep a diet discipline by remembering that we are what we eat.
2. Clean Water
Water is essential in maintaining a good health. Drink water with a great reduction power. This means water that has not been polluted with chemicals. Drinking “good water”, such as natural mineral water or hard water, that have a high calcium and magnesium content, helps you maintain a comfortable pH.
- Adults should drink 6-10 cups of water per day.
- Drink 1-3 cups of water first thing in the morning.
- Drink 2-3 cups of water, 1 hour before every meal.
3. Regular Bowel Movements
- Start a new daily habit of eliminating the intestinal pollutants and regular system cleansing.
- Avoid taking laxatives.
- If you have a sluggish bowel movement or if you wish to detox your liver, consider coffee enemas. Coffee enema is more efficient for colon detox and for general body detox because it doesn’t release free radicals in the bloodstream, as other dietary detox programs do.
4. Moderate Physical Exercise
- Age appropriate physical exercise that are also adequate for your physical fitness are necessary for maintaining a good health state. High intensity, regular exercise can release free radicals and do more damage to your body, than good.
- Best physical exercise for your gut are: walking 4 km a day, swimming, tenis, cycling, golf, muscle strengthening exercise, yoga, martial arts and sport aerobics.
5. Proper Rest
- Go to sleep at the same hour every night and enjoy an uninterrupted 6 to 8 hours sleep.
- Don’t drink or eat anything 4-5 hours before bedtime (except for a piece of fruit that you can eat 1 hour before bed if you’re particularly hungry).
- Take a 30 minutes power nap after lunch.
6. Respiration & Meditation
- Practice regular meditation.
- Practice positive thinking.
- Perform a complete deep breathing 4 to 5 times every hour. Expire twice as long as you inspire. It is very important to inhale deeply because this type of breathing helps eliminate toxins and free radicals from the body.
- Wear easy to wear clothes from natural fabrics that allow your skin to breathe.
- Listen to your own body and be good and loving to yourselves.
7. Joy and Love
- Joy and love help amplify the production of enzymes in the body, sometimes in a truly miraculous way.
- Take a moment every day to express your gratitude for all that you are and have good in your life.
- Live your life, work with passion and love the people in your life with all your might.
The Key to a Healthy Life (and Gut)
Dr. Shinya believes that the human ADN has an amazing potential that we know little of.
His research show that a strong influx of positive emotional energy, triggered by state of beings such as love, laughter, joy, can stimulate the ADN to produce a cascade of source-enzymes – the miracle enzyme that acts as a biocatalyst for body cell repair. Happiness and love have a healing potential way beyond our actual human understanding.
His most important advice for us is to do what we love in life, whatever fuels our passion, even if it sometimes can enter in conflict with his 7 golden rules above.
“Play an instrument. Make love. Have fun. Be grateful for the simple joys in life. Live your life with passion. Don’t forget: a happy and meaningful life is the natural path for the human health. Overflowing enthusiasm, rather than keeping with strict diet rules, is the method to put your enzimatic factor into motion.”
