short, Enzymes are known for both digesting food and proteins in the body
and blood; and digesting the cell walls of bad cells so that the immune
system and components of seeds can get in and kill it off. Dr. Kelly has an
enzyme therapy that is expensive but actually digests tumors.
Keys to Life
These powerfully active natural chemicals are
protein-mineral complexes which occur in all living things and make possible
virtually all of the many biochemical reactions in the body. They are
indispensable to life and to good health.Whenever there is a significant
reduction in the presence or the availability of enzymes, sickness and
degeneration begin.These keys to life can be roughly divided into three
types: those derived from food, digestive enzymes, and metabolic
enzymes.Food enzymes are abundantly present in all uncooked vegetables,
fruits, and grains. They assist in the breakdown of the food in which they
are present and also perform other useful functions in the body. Food
processing and heavy cooking commonly used today destroys nearly all of the
enzymes normally present in foods. Whatever enzymes may remain after
processing at the factory are finished off at home on the range.Cooking by
whatever means, except for very light steaming, will completely destroy all
enzymes in food-even the foods that were full of enzymes before hand.
Destroying the enzymes in food places an extra burden on the second
group, the digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are normally made by the
pancreas, which produces a specific digestive enzyme for the breakdown and
assimilation of each type of food we consume.
lipase for fats
amylase for carbohydrates or sugars
different types of protein
Metabolic enzymes make up
the third and most abundant group of enzymes in the body, and these function
within the cell to regulate such activity as detoxification, oxygen
utilization and energy production, along with a multitude of life-sustaining
and disease fighting functions.
There are over 3000 enzyme systems at
work in the body. Performing a vast number of functions, these indispensable
substances hold the keys to life. They assist greatly in the rebuilding of
all tissues in the body by breaking down ingested protein into its component
amino acids which the body uses as building blocks for repair and
rejuvenation. They attack waste materials in the blood and in the tissues,
converting them into a form that can be readily eliminated, thereby acting
as blood purifiers.
The immune system depends heavily upon enzymes
for all of its functions. To enumerate all of the actions of enzymes in
detail would take several volumes and need not be elaborated upon in this
exerpt.. Suffice it to say that they are essential to the performance of
every function of every organ system in our bodies. Many white blood cells
produce and utilize enzymes as a necessary part of their function.
Front-line soldiers of the white cell army, called macrophages, are
indispensable fighters of the cellular part of the immune system. They are
the "cleanup crew" or "sanitation department" of the body. Literally "big
eaters," these macrophages permeate every tissue in the body, seeking out,
attacking, surrounding, ingesting, and digesting, by enzyme activity all
foreign materials—toxins from outside and inside the body, dead or dying
cells, degenerating cells, and of, course, cancer cells.
say, these warriors are absolutely essential in protecting the body from
cancer as well as in fighting cancer once it has secured a foothold. Great
care must be exercised to protect these hungry macrophages lest toxic
residues, microorganisms and abnormal cells accumulate in the tissues, blood
and Iymph, leading to cancer. A myriad of environmental toxins, stress, poor
dietary habits, drugs (especially chemotherapeutic agents) all have
inhibiting effects on these important fighters and their enzymatic activity.
Another cancer-fighter, the T-lymphocyte, more specifically the killer
T-cell, attacks cancer cells in a similar manner, utilizing enzymes in its
ability to dissolve and digest tumor cells. As we have seen, these fighters
are part of a highly integrated system capable of recognizing cancer cells,
then attacking and destroying them. This information is extensively utilized
by alternative care
CANCER AND COMMON SENSE
particularly the proteolytic enzymes from the pancreas, have the unique
ability to break down the muco-protein coating which protects and encases
all malignant tumors from attack by the body's immune system. Cancer cells
become attached to body tissues by means of fibrin, a protein component
necessary for blood clotting. Enyzmes digest away the fibrin, preventing the
attachment of these bad cells to body tissues, thus releasing these abnormal
cells into the circulating blood where they are normally destroyed by the
fighters described above. Research has shown that enzymes in this case,
bromelain, a protein-digesting vegetable enzyme—have the power to transform
bad cells to normal cells. Enzymes also have an activating effect on the
immune system and are believed to be an integral part of that system.
This knowledge is not new.
A century ago, Scottish embryologist
John Beard, in spite of having little knowledge of enzymes, discovered that
by taking pancreas tissue from young animals he could extract a liquid which
was effective in causing cancer reduction. Practicing in England, Dr. Beard
would inject his pancreatic extract either directly into accessible tumors
or into the muscle or vein of the patient. Even some advanced cancers
considered to be incurable were made to completely disappear. He was able to
help or apparently cure over half of his patients, most with advanced
cancers, a far cry from today's dismal statistics.
His was a crude
preparation, containing impurities and foreign proteins which produced some
allergic reactions. For this he was roundly criticized and attacked by his
peers in the medical profession, not unlike organized medicine's attacks
today on the innovative physician.
112 CANCER AND
To illustrate the importance of
enzymes and to show why their decrease or disturbance represents such a
prevalent problem in Western society, I would indulge the reader in a brief
lesson in anatomy and physiology. Herbivorous animals (non-cheating
vegetarians) have an extra pouch above the stomach which has the purpose of
carrying out predigestion. As we have seen, raw plant foods contain their
own enzymes, and the pre-stomach sac in the animal allows the food to be
pre-digested by its own enzymes, along with enzymes in the saliva, before
passing on to gastric or stomach digestion.
Not well known is the
fact that humans have similar equipment for two-stage digestion. Dr. Edward
Howell, among others, has done research demonstrating that the human stomach
is, physiologically, actually two stomachs, each performing a distinctly
separate function. The upper stomach, called the cardiac portion (because of
its location beneath the heart, not because it has anything directly to do
with the heart), acts as a "storage bag," with none of the peristaltic
action (churning) such as that which is present throughout the remainder of
the digestive tract. This portion of the stomach has Sews if any, of the
glands that secrete hydrochloric acid and enzymes so prevalent in the lower
portion of the stomach. This relatively inert bag at the human stomach's
upper end corresponds to what Howell calls the food enzyme stomach in
animals, the purpose of which is to allow enzyme containing foods and
salivary enzymes to pre-digest food, preparing it far gastric digestion.(3)
By eating enzyme-poor foods, cooking or processing out what few enzymes
remain in food, then eating too much of this, it is easy to see that we of
the Western world have under-used our enzyme-food stomachs and placed an
extra burden on the remainder of the digestive apparatus. In the lower or
pyloric portion of the stomach, food is more actively broken down by
hydrochloric acid, pepsin, and other gastric enzymes. This part of the
stomach has very active peristaltic movement in contrast with the relatively
quiescent upper part.
Now overburdened by inadequately digested food,
the pyloric stomach then passes this burden on to the duodenum or first part
of the small intestine, where enzymes from the pancreas try to deal with the
bad hand they have been dealt.
Unwholesome meal after unwholesome
meal, year after year, takes a profound toll on the enzyme "pool," the total
enzymes available in the intestinal tract and elsewhere. Like being
repeatedly overdrawn at the bank eventually something bad happens. Not only
bad dietary habits but aging further depletes our store of enzymes,
contributing to the perpetual withdrawal problem. It is thus exceedingly
important to keep putting "money in the bank" in the form of food enzymes
from uncooked vegetables, fruits, grains, sprouts, digestive enzymes and
tood enzyme supplements. And this includes supplements to help compensate
for the body's store of decreased or missing "antioxidant" enzymes (see
Chapter m), which also have a role to play in cancer. Studies have shown
that in patients with pancreatic cancer and post-surgical breast cancer
treated with enzymes, survival rates were significantly better than for
those not treated with enzymes.(6) It is my carefully considered opinion
that a chronic deficiency of total enzymes available to the body is a major
factor contributing to the development of cancer and other degenerative
diseases, and that enyzmes from both animal and vegetable sources have a
definite place in the management and treatment of the cancer patient.
Enzyme therapy is a plan of dietary supplements of plant and animal enzymes used to facilitate the digestive process and improve the body's ability to maintain balanced metabolism.
Enzyme supplements are prescribed for patients suffering from medical disorders that affect the digestive process. It is not usually for healthy people. However, practitioners who argue in the favor of enzyme therapy believe that enzyme therapy benefits everyone. According to them, it is able to purify the blood, strengthen the immune system, enhance mental capacity, cleanse the colon, and maintain proper pH balance in the urine. They feel that by improving the digestive process, the body is better able to combat infection and disease.
Illnesses that are treated with enzyme therapy include: anemia, alcoholism, anxiety, acute inflammation, back pain, cancer, colds, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, constipation, diarrhea, food allergies, gastritis, gout, hepatitis, hypoglycemia, infections, mucous congestion, nervous disorders, obesity, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and stress.
There are seven categories of food enzymes. These are listed below, along with their activities:
- Amylase breaks down starch.
- Cellulase breaks down fibers.
- Lactase breaks down dairy products.
- Lipase breaks down fats.
- Maltase breaks down grains.
- Protease breaks down proteins.
- Sucrase breaks down sugars.
We live in the age where most of the food we consume is processed, cooked, pasteurized, canned, and microwaved. Enzymes are extremely sensitive to heat, and are destroyed at temperatures above 118°F (48°C). These processes leave our nutrition lacking in essential enzymes. This lack of essential enzymes is responsible for the improper digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.
Enzyme supplements are extracted from plants like pineapple and papaya and from the organs of cows and pigs. The supplements are typically given in a tablet or capsule form. The dosage varies with the condition being treated.
Although enzyme therapy has temporary side effects, these are considered a part of the cleansing process. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, heartburn, bloating, gas, diarrhea, acne, and an increase in bowel movements. To reduce these symptoms, it is advised to drink eight to ten glasses of water a day and get regular exercise. People with allergies to beef, pork, pineapples, and papaya may suffer allergic reactions and should therefore be careful.
Although plant enzymes are safe for pregnant women it is always advisable to check with a doctor in advance. Further, animal enzymes should be avoided. While taking enzyme tablets, precaution should be taken that patients should not chew/crush the tablets as this might damage the enzyme due to the presence of acids in the stomach.
In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified enzymes as a food. So the good news is that you do not need a prescription to purchase them. However, insurance companies will require you to have a doctor’s prescription before they cover the cost of the therapy. And the costs of therapy can vary depending upon the ailment that is being treated.
