The body is doing amazing things all of the time to make sure you operate correctly and sometimes the body needs a little help. This is where enzymes come in. Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life. In this two part episode we’ll discuss what enzymes actually do, how the body acquires them and which ones, if any, you should be supplementing with. Listen in as Tony, Will and Kinna answer your questions now!

- What do enzymes actually do?
- The different kinds of enzymes and their functions.
- Why a raw diet isn’t always better.

On our Kick It Naturally show, we cover how most symptoms, or health issues, can have a variety of underlying causes. When the goal is to improve a symptom or health issue, the first step should always be to look at your own chemistry to figure out what may be causing the problem. The almost free 4-week Digestion Course that we talk about in this episode is a great way to learn how to run simple tests you can do at home, and get an idea of imbalances that may be occurring in your body chemistry.
Once you understand the imbalances you may be dealing with, you can listen to our episode about that topic to better understand how different imbalances can cause that symptom or health issue. If you are seem to have a strong imbalance that is commonly the underlying cause of the issue you’re dealing with, now you have a place to start. If you can do the work to improve that imbalance, you may find that the symptom could improve right along with it.
If you get stuck, be sure to join our free and private Facebook Support Group HERE. There, you can ask questions and others can point you in the right direction.
