Enzymes are “life-catalysts.” In Oxygen Kingdom, enzymes may be seen as mediators of living reactions. In my Grease-and Detergent Model of Healing, enzymes act as efficient detergents. This is, simply stated, the scientific basis and/or rationale for my liberal use of robust enzyme therapies in the care of people with various chronic disorders and cancer.

Foods are digested—broken down, in common vernacular—by enzymes. Cells develop, differentiate, and live by oxygen-driven enzymes. These substances also detoxify metabolic and environmental pollutants. At another level, no healing is possible without inflammation and no inflammatory response can be mounted without enzymes..

Blood, lymph, and other bodily fluids clot and un-clot at all times. One family of enzymes catalyzes clotting and may be called coagulative (clotting) enzymes, whereas another family is responsible for un-clotting and may be designated as un-clotting (proteolytic) enzymes. In health, the functionalities of clotting and un-clotting enzymes are exquisitely orchestrated to maintain equilibrium, such that microscopic clots in small numbers can be seen in those fluids only with high-resolution microscopes. That equilibrium is disrupted in cancer.

All unhealthy cells produce excess cellular grease and increase clotting in all biologic fluids. They do so by producing prodigious amounts of acids and free radicals that solidify proteins in those fluids. It is important to realize that proteins in the body are found linked to fats (lipoproteins) and sugars (glycoproteins), so that solidification of proteins, in reality, is precipitation of lipoproteins and glycoproteins respectively. This process is analogous to solidification of Jello powder in water. Clotting is one of the potent weapons which cancer cells use to suffocate—and devitalize and eventually kill—normal cells in their vicinity. It is for this reason that I consider prevention of abnormal clotting of bodily fluids as a crucial in cancer treatment. I refer readers interested in more information on this subject to my book The Crab, Oxygen and Cancer. Volume II: The Oxygen Protocol for Cancer (2007), the chapter entitled “A cancer cell Cocoons Itself—Then De-Cocoons.”

From the standpoint of clinical medicine, enzymes are classified according to: (1) the reactions they catalyze; (2) the substances they act upon; (3) the acid/alkali conditions under which they operate; and (4) the metabolic function they serve. In the context of cancer treatment, the following four families of enzymes are most important:

❂ Oxyenzymes (enzymes that are directly involved with functionalities of oxygen in cells);
❂ Digestive enzymes;
❂ Proteolytic (clot-busting) enzymes; and
❂ Detoxification enzymes

Other enzymes of interest are those involved with the repair and healing processes, and death squad enzymes called caspases.

Pottinger’s Cats and 7 ps

From 1930-42, Dr. Francis Pottenger, Jr., a veterinarian of Monrovia, California examined the effects of food enzymes on the development of cancer in 900 cats over a period of 10 years. He claimed to have not encountered a single case of cancer in cats fed only uncooked foods, while cancer was common among his cats given cooked foods. To honor his work, I offer the readers the following listing of enzymes of special interest in cancer treatment:

❂ Pancreatic pancreatin
❂ Pineapple bromelain
❂ Papaya papain
❂ Pepsin
❂ Proteases
❂ Peroxidases (glutathione peroxidase and others)
❂ Pectinase for digesting pectin

Enzyme Therapies

I offer the following simplified version of various measures/therapies that fall under the broader rubric of enzyme therapies as components of the Oxygen Protocol for cancer treatment:

Conservation of enzymes

❂ Divinity
❂ Optimal hydration
❂ Nutritional measures to prevent sugar/insulin/adrenaline/neurotransmitter metabolic roller coasters

Regeneration of enzymes

❂ Oxygen homeostasis
❂ Restoration of the bowel, blood, and liver ecosystems

Supplementation of Enzymes

❂ Plant-based
❂ Animal based
❂ Major options:
* Pineapple bromelain
* Papaya papain
* Kinases from fermented soy

Below are two of my preferred enzyme formulations:

Enzymes for GERD, Gastritis, and Colitis

Pancreatin 100 mg
Papain 50 mg
Amylase 50 mg
Lipase 50 mg
Protease 50 mg

Enzyme for Arthritis, Tendonitis, Myositis,
and Other Soft Tissue inflammations

Bromelain 500 mg
Papain 50 mg
Vitamin B-6 50 mg
Vitamin C 1,000 mg
