July 2021 News letter – What are Enzymes? | Written By Dr. Jerry J. Masarira, Naturopath D. CBIS.

      

Enzymes are proteins produced by all living organisms and they consist of amino acids. They are catalysts that make essential biochemical reactions happen. The enzymes are not used up or chemically altered in the process. Their job is to make chemical reactions take place quickly as well as efficiently.

       Without enzymes some reactions would happen very slowly or not at all.  

Enzymes are very specific in their functions. The substance they act upon as they function is called, Substrate. Enzymes act like lock and key or like hand and glove. That means you may have several enzymes, but only one will work on a particular food (lock). One enzyme will work on the same food several times without getting destroyed.

You can not open a lock if you do not have a particular key for it. That means you cannot digest a particular food without the right enzyme for that type of food no matter how many other enzymes you have in your body. Does that make sense?

Food and enzymes are only in the stomach for about one and half hours, then they pass into the intestines where most of absorption takes place. Any insufficiently digested particle entering the small intestines may invoke an allergic reaction or cause inflammation.  

     There are three main groups of enzymes:-

a.   The digestive enzymes.

b.   Food enzymes in raw foods.

c.   Metabolic enzymes.

Enzymes are a part of the metabolic process in the body. When you eat raw food, your body uses the enzymes if the raw food itself to digest instead of producing the needed enzymes for digestion internally.

Cooked food, because of high heat, it destroys enzymes. Microwaving food creates a lot of heat which eventually destroys enzymes.

Your body produces digestive enzymes throughout your lifetime DEPENDING on the raw foods and good foods you eat that make your body store for future use. Digestive enzymes are from the pancreas and from the digestive tract. When you eat a lot of cooked food only and junk food as take-aways, and have no enzymes brought in from outside, they give the pancreas a lot of stress to “find” enzymes for digesting certain foods.

Lack of enzymes results in degenerating illnesses such as pancreatic cancers etc. The digestive enzymes in saliva continue their activity in the alkaline upper stomach during the first one hour after eating.

      Enzymes from animal products are destroyed by the low pH of the stomach acid. Animal enzymes pancreatin, trypsin, and chymotrypsin are only active in the alkaline environment of the duodenum.

     Enzymes derived from microbial and plant sources work at pH found in the upper stomach where food may sit for over one hour. They will continue to be active in the acidic lower stomach as well as later when food passes into the alkaline small intestine. Microbial and plant enzymes have a much wider variety of specific enzyme types as well as enabling them to work on many kinds of foods.

    Because microbial and plant derived enzymes have these advantages over animal enzymes. That is why when one has cancer, animal products do not support life to heal cancer because they have no enzymes but worsen the problem. Therefore it is discouraged to eat them. That is why we have no hospitals for wild animals who eat mostly grass and leaves but domesticated animals do, our dogs and cats are taken to vet offices.

      You might have a question on why lions, leopards, hyenas, cheaters etc, eating meat every day do not have health problems the same as grass eating animals. It is because they eat raw meat, not cooked. Raw meat has the enzymes from the grass eaten the same as human beings keep enzymes for digestion when we eat raw foods like salads etc. If you want to eat meat with enzymes, eat it raw and not cooked.  

       We have a website for you to communicate for consultations and also training you as a medical missionary. There are other services you may find useful. On the website We recorded over 100 audio weekly lessons and old monthly news-letters you might have missed from the past. Feel free to read and listen.

Why Biden's push to share vaccines with the world could be 'too little, too late' – The Washington Post

The United States has sent more than 110 million doses of coronavirus vaccines to over 60 countries across the world, the White House said in a statement Tuesday — a step President Biden is set to address in remarks Tuesday afternoon. While the U.S. government has dubbed the level of vaccine sharing a “major milestone,” some global health experts have offered a more pessimistic outlook, as the pandemic surges in many parts of the world.“The doses are useful, but they are just too little, too late,” said Lawrence Gostin, a professor of global health law at Georgetown University Law. “It’s not going to make much of a dent in the pandemic.”Over the course of the pandemic, health experts have sounded the alarm over the vaccination disparity between rich and poor countries, from both moral and strategic perspectives. WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told The Washington Post last week that the sharp divergence marked a “betrayal of trust” that had cost lives, which could have been saved if “the wealthiest countries allowed poorer countries access to their fair share of vaccines.”Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat do we know about U.S. vaccine sharing?Where are vaccine doses most needed?What more could the United States and other nations be doing?How has delta surge changed things?What do we know about U.S. vaccine sharing?President Biden announced in June that the United States was buying 500 million doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine to donate to the world, with the first 200 million to be distributed this year. Earlier, the Biden administration had pledged to donate at least 80 million vaccine doses by the end of June.The doses were shared through Covax, a World Health Organization-backed initiative to distribute vaccine doses equitably, the White House announced Tuesday. The majority of the doses were made in the United States and shipped to countries currently struggling with covid-19, including Bangladesh, Colombia, Indonesia and the Philippines.“According to the United Nations, this is more than the donations of all other countries combined and reflects the generosity of the American spirit,” read a White House statement.Where are vaccine doses most needed?Though the number of vaccines donated by the United States exceeds the numbers donated by other wealthy nations, the level of sharing falls far short of the billions needed to vaccinated 70 percent of the world, a widely cited target. Poorer nations still lie far below wealthy nations in terms of the percentage of their population vaccinated and efforts to address that gap, such as Covax, have faltered.“We need 11 billion doses,” said Gostin. “This is really just a drop in the ocean.”Across Africa in particular, few doses have been administered.As of the end of July, Covax had shipped more than 153 million coronavirus vaccines to countries, humanitarian agencies and others who participate in the program, according to GAVI, a global vaccine alliance that is one of the main backers of Covax.Covax had struggled with both funding and supply early during the pandemic, when wealthy nations bought up early shipments of vaccine doses. According to tracking from the Duke Global Health Innovation Center, the United States has procured over 1.6 billion doses so far — around 5.21 doses per inhabitant. Only a few other wealthy nations have procured more per capita, including Canada, which has 10.4 doses per capita according to Duke’s research.“Ultimately, wealthy countries will control Covax’s success or failure, and it’s imperative that Covax succeeds — there is no plan B,” Sean Simons of the ONE Campaign, a global anti-poverty organization, said in a statement on Tuesday.The United States is “hoarding” doses, Githinji Gitahi, global chief executive of Amref Health Africa and the African Union’s commissioner for coronavirus response, told The Post last week. He called on wealthy countries including the U.S. to release commitments to additional doses they have pre-booked from pharmaceutical companies, and to quickly donate more existing doses in their stockpiles.“A vaccine delayed is a vaccine denied,” he said last week, emphasizing that “speed is of the essence.”What more could the United States and other nations be doing?Though the United States and other wealthy nations have tended to focused on vaccinating their own populations, even at the expense of the most vulnerable elsewhere, while donating some doses, experts and aid groups say that there is more that can be done, including investments in technology and infrastructure and the loosening of intellectual property agreements.“Dose sharing arrangements are helpful in the short-term, but we also need governments and companies to find ways to increase production dramatically, through voluntary licensing, technology transfer or by waiving intellectual property rights for certain products for a certain time,” World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in an email to The Washington Post last month.In a recent statement, Doctors Without Borders called on the U.S. to pressure Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna to share mRNA vaccine technology and know-how with producers in low- and middle-income countries and continue to support an intellectual property waiver being debated at the WTO.“As one of the world’s major purchasers of coronavirus vaccines, the U.S. government’s next steps on boosters and redistribution of its vaccines will be immensely consequential to whether we can finally end this pandemic,” Carrie Teicher, director of programs at MSF-USA, said in the statement. “The U.S. can either cater to the pharmaceutical industry or help vaccinate the world.”How has delta surge changed things?The surge in cases related to the fast-spreading delta variant has contributed to a new sense of urgency about vaccines and the pandemic. In the United States, as well as some other countries, health agencies are considering or have already begun administering vaccine booster doses.However, in many countries even health workers and others among the most at risk have not received their first doses yet. And the delta variant, while reviving waves in some wealthy countries with high levels of vaccination, is also hitting some countries with limited supplies of vaccines.“The U.S. government and pharmaceutical corporations should not be planning to administer coronavirus vaccine booster shots anywhere before all health care workers and vulnerable people globally have access to vaccination,” Doctors Without Borders said in a statement last month.Some experts have warned that the unmitigated spread of the coronavirus in some countries could contribute to the emergence of dangerous variants, which means vaccination will only work globally.Gostin said Americans should put themselves in the shoes of unvaccinated health workers risking their lives around the world.“You see the United States vaccinating its very healthy young people and planning on giving boosters to the elderly, you just have to shake your head and say, ‘oh well, it’s nice you’re giving me a few doses,’” he said. “It’s just exasperating.”

What do we know about U.S. vaccine sharing?

President Biden announced in June that the United States was buying 500 million doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine to donate to the world, with the first 200 million to be distributed this year. Earlier, the Biden administration had pledged to donate at least 80 million vaccine doses by the end of June.

The doses were shared through Covax, a World Health Organization-backed initiative to distribute vaccine doses equitably, the White House announced Tuesday. The majority of the doses were made in the United States and shipped to countries currently struggling with covid-19, including Bangladesh, Colombia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

“According to the United Nations, this is more than the donations of all other countries combined and reflects the generosity of the American spirit,” read a White House statement.

Where are vaccine doses most needed?

Though the number of vaccines donated by the United States exceeds the numbers donated by other wealthy nations, the level of sharing falls far short of the billions needed to vaccinated 70 percent of the world, a widely cited target. Poorer nations still lie far below wealthy nations in terms of the percentage of their population vaccinated and efforts to address that gap, such as Covax, have faltered.

“We need 11 billion doses,” said Gostin. “This is really just a drop in the ocean.”

Across Africa in particular, few doses have been administered.

As of the end of July, Covax had shipped more than 153 million coronavirus vaccines to countries, humanitarian agencies and others who participate in the program, according to GAVI, a global vaccine alliance that is one of the main backers of Covax.

Covax had struggled with both funding and supply early during the pandemic, when wealthy nations bought up early shipments of vaccine doses.

“A vaccine delayed is a vaccine denied,” he said last week, emphasizing that “speed is of the essence.”

What more could the United States and other nations be doing?

Though the United States and other wealthy nations have tended to focused on vaccinating their own populations, even at the expense of the most vulnerable elsewhere, while donating some doses, experts and aid groups say that there is more that can be done, including investments in technology and infrastructure and the loosening of intellectual property agreements.

“Dose sharing arrangements are helpful in the short-term, but we also need governments and companies to find ways to increase production dramatically, through voluntary licensing, technology transfer or by waiving intellectual property rights for certain products for a certain time,” World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in an email to The Washington Post last month.

How has delta surge changed things?

The surge in cases related to the fast-spreading delta variant has contributed to a new sense of urgency about vaccines and the pandemic. In the United States, as well as some other countries, health agencies are considering or have already begun administering vaccine booster doses.

However, in many countries even health workers and others among the most at risk have not received their first doses yet. And the delta variant, while reviving waves in some wealthy countries with high levels of vaccination, is also hitting some countries with limited supplies of vaccines.

“The U.S. government and pharmaceutical corporations should not be planning to administer coronavirus vaccine booster shots anywhere before all health care workers and vulnerable people globally have access to vaccination,” Doctors Without Borders said in a statement last month.

Some experts have warned that the unmitigated spread of the coronavirus in some countries could contribute to the emergence of dangerous variants, which means vaccination will only work globally.

Gostin said Americans should put themselves in the shoes of unvaccinated health workers risking their lives around the world.

Germany Facilitates Entry Rules From Several Third-Countries, Including South Africa – SchengenVisaInfo.com – SchengenVisaInfo.com

The German federal government agency and research institute responsible for disease control and prevention Robert Koch Institute has removed several third countries from the list of virus variant areas, which has prompted the German authorities to facilitate entry restrictions for arrivals from these countries.At the same time, the institute has announced that from August and on, there will be only two types of risk areas: high-risk areas (previously high-incidence areas) and virus variant areas, while the simple risk area category will no longer exist.
Since Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 12:00 am, Germany has removed nine third countries from the virus variant area category and placed them in the category of the high-risk areas, including here South Africa, which has been in place since the beginning of 2021. These countries are

Botswana
Eswatini
Lesotho
Malawi
Mozambique
Namibia
Zambia
Zimbabwe
South Africa

The change of categories for these countries means that visa holders from these areas will finally be eligible to travel to Germany, including here work and student visa holders.
Last weekend, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported that the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs imposed a requirement of negative COVID-19 test results for travellers who have not been vaccinated yet, and those that haven’t previously been infected with COVID-19, including arrivals from areas in the safe list.
The requirement will also apply to arrivals from the countries listed above, who now are obliged to present proof that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19, they have recently recovered from the virus or proof of negative test results.
“When entering the Federal Republic of Germany after a stay in a foreign high-risk area (previously high-incidence area) or virus variant area, special registration, verification and quarantine obligations must be observed,” the RKI explains.

According to RKI’s most recent update, no new virus variant areas have been detected since the previous update. Currently, in this category remain only Brazil and Uruguay.
At the same time, Andorra has been moved from the category of simple risk areas to the high-risk list. The Dominican Republic, on the other hand, is no longer a risk area.

Germany is among the EU countries with the highest vaccination rates, with 72.9 per cent of its population having received at least the first dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, while 59.1 per cent of them are fully vaccinated, data by European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control reveals.
Yet, according to the World Health Organization, Germany has reported 2,454 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours and 30 deaths, which has brought the number of COVID-19 infections in the country to 3,766,65 since the beginning of the pandemic. The country now counts 91,637 deaths due to the virus.
