Proteolytic enzymes are one of the most important things that everyone should be taking, for a couple of different reasons. And not just in 8 day rounds like the Zymex 2 is taken for.
What happens with the dead carcasses of parasites that are killed in closed cavities, like the heart, brain etc? Dead parasites aren't always going to show up in the toilet.
Proteolytic enzymes, work systemically, like little pac men, but have to be taken away from food, especially protein. Bromelain is the enzyme in pineapple, but it's not the only enzyme needed by the pancreas.
In order to not be digested themselves, Ascaris
inhibit our digestive enzymes.
>>The chymotrypsin/elastase inhibitor from Ascaris
species protects it from proteolytic degradation by the host"s digestive enzymes
>>The molecular structure of a peptide secreted by parasitic Ascaris
worms to protect them from digestive enzymes in the stomach is described this week by a multinational group of scientists. This research may lead to drugs that can disrupt the action of the peptide, pepsin inhibitor-3 (PI-3), exposing the parasite to the host's natural defences, the investigators suggest ( Nature Struct Biol 2000; 7: 653—57).
The researchers, led by Michael James (University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
>>One thing certainly stands out: in every case of cancer pancreatic enzymes
are depressed. And as has also been proven true: whenever a deficiency in
function in one area is found in an organ, other functions are often
deficient as well.
Pancreatic enzymes are essential and central to the normal metabolically
mediated control and destruction of the cancer cell.
Magnesium is thought to be essential in the activity of at least 70
different life-sustaining enzymes in our bodies, and probably more.
The arrested development of certain white blood cells may be due to a
deficiency of trypsin, which I am told has been shown experimentally to
promote maturation of developmentally-arrested leukocytes. That the
immune system functions only after the peri-cellular coating is digested
away from the cancer membrane is well established; if this leukocyte
development function can be fully confirmed, the pancreas must then be
termed an immune organ along with bone marrow and the thymus.
Thus the complete metabolic protocol for cancer must always include the
pancreatic enzymes, especially amylase, whose role is to shear away the
surgery side chains attached to the proteins, and which give the cancer
cell it's strong negative charge that repulses the white blood cells;
trypsin, which degrades the proteins along with carboxypeptidase and
chymotrypsin; and later ribonuclease which degrades the cancer genome, and
lipase and probably all the other enzymes secreted by the pancreas, and
which enter the entero-pancreatic circulation.
There is strong empirical evidence that there is an absorption not only of
the intrinsic pancreatic enzymes back into the blood and lymph, but also
enzymes derived from our foods or supplements, as much as 40% according to
Dr.s Lopez, Williams, and Mielhke.
The principal concept is that cancer cells actually elicit pancreatic
proteases and amylase by their presence, just as food in the stomach
stimulates pancreatic secretion by means not fully understood. A
deficiency in either amylase or the proteases would be disastrous if
continued unsatisfied. The delivery of the essential amino acids,
chromium and magnesium (as well as zinc) insure that the pancreas will
synthesize these enzymes in sufficient quantity to satisfy both intestinal
digestion, and the immuno-enzyme function against the cancer cell or
secretes inhibitors which deactivate these enzymes. A similar mechanism
is used by pin and round worms like Ascaris, and other parasites.
The commonest enzyme inhibitors might be running out of your tap: heavy
metals like copper, mercury and silver.
