Enzymes and Cancer
Pancreatic Enzymes report:
The last stage of digestion, is probably the most significant for cancer patients. In this stage pancreatic and other enzymes are functioning in the intestine and the blood. Taking supplements takes the load off of the bodys need to expend energy to produce the enzymes itself,according to Dr. Hector Solorzano, M.D., Coordinator of the Program for Studies of Alternative Medicine and Professor of Pharmacology of the University of Guadalajara in Mexico. He reports:
enzymes help expose antigens on the surface of cancer cells, so they can be recognized as foreign and destroyed by the immune system.
circulating immune complexes (CICs), produced when cancerous cells shed their antigens into the circulation to avoid detection by the immune system, can be destroyed by pancreatic enzymes.
pancreatic enzymes can stimulate natural killer cells, T-cells, and tumor necrosis factor, all toxic to cancer cells.
Finally, Dr. Solorzano reports that by removing the "sticky" coating found on tumor cells, enzymes reduce the risk of tumors adhering to other areas of the body and allow the enzyme to enter the cancer cell during itís reproductive phase. Vitamin A increases this effect.
Several other doctors were quoted as using various enzymes for a variety of problems-Martha).The Burton Goldberg Group, Alternative Medicine, Future MedicineThe Burton Goldberg Group, Alternative Medicine, Future Medicine Publishing, 1994, pg. 219-221.
