In 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.
The 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
protcases for 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.
Needless to 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
Other enzymes, 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 COMMON SENSE
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.
