By Briana McDonald, Feb. 9, 2017, (UtopiaSilver.com) Dr. Howell, in his book on enzyme nutrition states; “a person’s life span is directly related to the exhaustion of their enzyme potential. And the use of food enzymes decreases that rate of exhaustion, and thus, results in a longer, healthier, and more vital life.” Enzyme therapy has been used with good results against cancers in Europe, and by some doctors in the United States to digest cancer cells. The more we begin to understand the role enzymes play in our lives, the more we can learn how to use enzyme therapy for cancer healing.
Why We Need Enzymes
Digestive enzymes unlock the nutrients in your food. In fact, every single metabolic function in your body is governed by enzymes. Your stamina, your energy level, your ability to utilize vitamins and minerals, your immune system — all governed by enzymes. They are categorized by the macronutrients that they release—proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Digestive enzymes play key roles in our health by enabling our bodies to digest and utilize all the nutrients we ingest to the greatest extent possible. (1 ) Moreover, these enzymes play key roles in our health in the elimination of toxins and the digestion and removal of scar tissue that builds up inside us as we age.
The digestive system was designed to process raw food which has enzymes that help break down that food in the upper stomach where it sits for about 30-45 minutes and is predigested. Then in the lower stomach the pancreas produces more enzymes to finish breaking it down. Enzymes are extremely sensitive to their environment. Heat and chemicals can denature an enzyme, or destroy its ability to unlock nutrients. Because of heavy processing, pasteurized and packaged foods often lack active enzymes. This means that the body must work harder than ever to break down and synthesize these foods in the lower stomach. When this occurs, two things happen: 1. the pancreas must make extra enzymes to break down the food and 2. Only a partial amount of the food is digested.
After years of producing excessive amounts of digestive enzymes, the pancreas gets its enzyme signaling out of balance and does not produce enough of the proteolytic enzymes that are used to digest cancer cells, pathogens, toxins, fibrin in the arteries and scar tissue.
Raw foods are naturally rich in enzymes. Vegetables and fruits contain plant enzymes that assist with their own digestion. Raw dairy also contains enzymes that help the body to break down milk sugars, which are often difficult to digest. Proper metabolic function requires at least 13 kinds of vitamins and 20 kinds of minerals, in addition to fats, carbohydrates and water. All of these items combine to ensure that when food is consumed it gets broken down to its basic component parts for absorption and then is transported by the blood stream throughout the body.
Therapeutic Dosing of Enzymes
When enzymes are taken on an empty stomach they perform a remarkably different function. I imagine them to be like the sucker fish you see on tanks, cleaning the sides of any algae present. Likewise, enzymes go into your capillaries and tissues and clean up any damage or scar tissue present. “There are experiments that involve coupling radioactive particles with ingested enzymes, allowing scientist to track their paths. Results prove that enzymes taken on an empty stomach do indeed assist the metabolic functions including miraculous repair of any damage sustained by the body. Translation: More life.” (Matt Monarch, Raw Success) 2 Donald Kelley is another person known to believe that cancer is the end result of a failure to produce sufficient pancreatic and digestive enzymes.
Enzymes Inhibit Metastasis (Spread) of Cancer
“For about 30 years, a number of work groups have concerned themselves with the influence of proteolytic enzymes on metastasis. In the 60’s, scientists were of the opinion that cancer cell stickiness resulting from a deficiency in enzymes was responsible for the frequent development of secondary tumors. The stickiness of the cancer cells was generally recognized to result from the excessive formation of fibrin. Inflammation is also an important factor in the spread of cancer. Since the endothelium of tissue with inflammatory alterations has a thicker layer of specific adhesion molecules, these are sites where metastasis is more likely to occur….formation of fibrin on the tumor cell membrane supports the adhesive process and serves as a protective barrier against tumor cell recognition by the immunological system. Proteolytic enzymes inhibit both excess fibrin deposition and inflammation, thus helping to prevent the spread of tumor cells.” 3.
Essentially, the proteolytic enzymes will digest the fibrin coating on tumors, exposing them to the immune system where your body’s inner intelligence goes to work to eliminate the tumor from the body.
Enzymes to Look For
- Citrus Pectin – clinical research has shown that modified citrus pectin helps limit disease progression in men with advanced prostate cancer. (4.) In addition to cancer-inhibiting effects, modified citrus pectin shows promise in chelating toxic heavy metals that can be so damaging.
- Papain – papain possesses a very powerful digestive action superior to pancreatin, or pancreatic enzymes. Taken on an empty stomach, it will work more aggressively than even the pancreatic enzymes in attacking and destroying cancer cells. 5.
- Protease– breaks down proteins and peptides. When taken in extremely large doses, it will digest both live and dead cancer cells inside tumors, helping to bring the tumor size down faster.5
A stack of research validates enzyme therapy for cancer healing is a natural alternative to repairing and healing the body without the adverse affects associated with mainstream methods.
