The following text is an excerpt from the excellent book “Cancer Step Out of the Box” by Ty Bollinger. Reproduced here, with his kind permission.
The primary basis of the enzyme/metabolic therapy for cancer emanates from the recognition that cancer cells are virtually indistinguishable from placental cells found in pregnancy. This theory, called the “trophoblast” theory, was proposed by Scottish embryologist Dr. John Beard around 1900. First he observed that the invading placental (trophoblast) cells were astonishingly similar to cancer cells, and other observations led him to believe there was an intimate correlation between these trophoblasts and cancer cells.
In early fetal development, the placental trophoblasts produce a protective environment (placenta) and a source of nutrition (umbilical cord), much in the same manner as cancer cells form a protective environment (tumor) and a source of nutrition (new blood supply). Another observation was that the placental trophoblasts seem to take a downturn in activity around the 8th week of pregnancy. It became clear to Beard that this downturn coincided with the completion of the digestive system in the fetus and the activation of the fetal pancreas. Modern medical research has also shown that these trophoblast cells secrete a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), and the quantities of this hormone rise until around the 8 th week and then begin to taper off. It is this very hormone that coats the trophoblast cells and cancer cells and makes them impervious to our immune system. It has been proven that hCG is found in all types of cancers.
Other than the trophoblast cell and the cancer, no other human cells produce hCG. So, if you take an hCG urine test and get a positive result, then you are either a pregnant woman or you have cancer. The Navarro Urine Test is the most accurate hcG test, according to my research. Trophoblasts are also surrounded by a coating of glycoprotein including a molecule that gives them a negative charge. This same type of negative-charged coating is found around the cancer cell; and in fact, this is one of the chief reasons for classifying all cancer cells as trophoblastic. Also, the leukocytes (white blood cells) of the immune system are negatively charged; and as we all know, like charges repel, while opposites attract. This being so, both trophoblasts and cancer cells are impermeable to the immune system’s natural defense mechanism.
Remember that the placental trophoblasts produce hCG until the eighth week of pregnancy, when they taper off. This is a direct result of the fact that the fetal pancreas begins to produce enzymes! And when certain enzymes, namely trypsin and chymotrypsin and amylase, encounter a trophoblast cell, they are able to break down its negatively charged protein coating. This is why “morning sickness” typically begins around the 8 th week of pregnancy – the fetal pancreas is not yet fully developed and does not yet produce amylase, which is responsible for digesting glycogen (the “glyco” part of the glycoprotein coating). As a result, the glycoproteins are not broken down into their smallest units, and the mother’s kidneys and pancreas are both forced to compensate and become overloaded. The result is nausea, pain in the lower back, and low energy. Thus, the pregnant mother can supplement her diet with amylase to minimize morning sickness. Interestingly, one of the rarest cancers is cancer of the duodenum, which is the area of the intestines that is highest in pancreatic enzymes. The reason that we do find cases of pancreatic cancer is that the enzymes have not yet been “activated” in the small intestine. This is also the reason that pancreatic cancer has such a high mortality rate – the pancreas loses its ability to produce enzymes, thus there is no control mechanism for the cancer!
In 1911, Dr. Beard published a paper entitled The Enzyme Therapy of Cancer , which summarized his therapy and the supporting evidence. After his death in 1923, the enzyme therapy was largely forgotten, especially with the advent of Marie Curie and her radiation work. The pioneer in the development of Enzyme/Metabolic therapy was Dr. William Donald Kelley (a Texas orthodontist). Around 1960, at the age of 35, his health began to deteriorate. In 1964, a series of x-rays showed the signs of advancing pancreatic cancer, including lesions in his lungs, hip and liver. The surgeon said Kelley was too sick to operate on and told Mrs. Kelley (his wife and the mother of his four children) that he had four to eight weeks to live. Kelley was ready to give up, but his mother was not! She threw out the junk food and meat and instructed him to eat only fresh and raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds. After several months, Kelley began to feel better, and he was even able to return to work.
However, after 6 or 7 months, he stopped improving and developed severe digestive problems, probably from the advancing cancer. He therefore began taking pancreatic enzymes to aid his digestion, and eventually increased the dose to 50 enzyme capsules per day. It was at this point that he discovered the work of Dr. John Beard concerning the relationship of pancreatic enzymes to cancer. He also encountered the writings of Dr. Edward Howell, an early advocate of the raw plant food diet. In time, Kelley fully recovered from his cancer. Considering the fact that the Cancer Industry still considers pancreatic cancer incurable, this was very impressive!
Kelley theorized that the formation of cancer was attributable to excess female hormones which were responsible for changing a stem cell into a trophoblast cell. Simply put, this means that cancer is the growth of normal tissue, but at the wrong place at the wrong time. He believed that cancer progresses due to a lack of pancreatic enzymes that digest the cancer cells. Eventually, Kelley went on to treat over 33,000 patients who had cancer. Dr. Kelly had a cure rate of 93% in patients that lived at least 18 months after starting his treatment. In other words, those that weren’t “on their last leg” had tremendous success with his treatment protocol, since this is not necessarily a fast-acting treatment.
Of course, the building blocks of his treatment protocol were pancreatic enzymes. He also instructed patients to eliminate pasteurized milk, peanuts, white flour and sugar, chlorinated water, and all processed foods. Dr. Kelley developed a line of over 50 nutritional formulations for different types of cancers, and he always individualized plans for patients according to their own metabolic type. The typical Kelley diet restricts protein, is 70% to 80% raw, and emphasizes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, raw juices, sprouts, and pancreatic enzymes. Coffee enemas are taken to help the body detoxify and to eliminate toxins secreted by tumors as they dissolve.
The Medical Mafia, in their pompous ignorance and diabolical greed, didn’t like Dr. Kelley curing cancer with inexpensive enzymes! So, they sent a young medical intern, Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, to investigate Kelly’s claims and debunk him. Dr. Gonzalez traveled to Dallas in 1981 to interview and to investigate Dr. Kelley. He was astonished to find case after case of appropriately diagnosed, advanced cancer patients who were healthy and active 10 to 15 years after their diagnosis. Kelley made all his records available (over 10,000 patients) and encouraged Gonzales to contact any and all of them. Eventually, the study sample was narrowed down to 50 cases which represented 25 different types of cancer. All 50 patients were initially diagnosed as terminal. The median survival of this group was 10 years!
As incredible as these results seemed, Dr. Gonzalez decided to go a step further. He wanted to focus on pancreatic cancer, since the five year survival rate with orthodox treatments is virtually zero percent . He searched and found 22 pancreatic cancer patients who had been treated by Dr. Kelley between 1974 and 1982.
The twenty-two patients fell into three categories:
1. Ten patients consulted with Kelley only once and never went on
the protocol – All died.
2. Seven patients followed the protocol only partially and sporadically (as determined by interviews with family members, doctors, and records) – All died.
3. However, five patients followed the protocol completely – All achieved long-term remission (although one died of Alzheimer’s disease after 11.5 years of survival). The median survival rate of these five pancreatic cancer patients was nine years!
Of course, as with other medical mavericks, Dr. Kelley had his share of persecution from the Medical Mafia and its leg breakers. He was issued a restraining order which prohibited him from treating anything but dental disease. When he violated this order, he was thrown in jail. A Texas court also made it illegal for him to distribute his self-published booklet, entitled One Answer To Cancer. This makes Dr. Kelley the first (and only) doctor ever to be prohibited by court decree from publishing!
Although he appealed the decision to the United States Supreme Court, arguing that his First Amendment rights were being flagrantly violated, the ruling was upheld. He eventually had to move his clinic to Mexico. Not surprisingly, his enzyme/metabolic therapy protocol was put on the American Cancer Society’s “Unproven Methods” blacklist in 1971 where it remains today. However, One Answer To Cancer can be found at this website: www.drkelley.com/CANLIVER55.html . Dr. Kelley died in 2005, but before he died, he wrote a book entitled Cancer: Curing the Incurable Without Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation . This book is even better than his first book and is available on Amazon.com. His work is currently being continued by Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, who runs a clinic in New York City. His website is www.dr-gonzalez.com . I know Dr. Gonzalez personally and highly recommend his clinic.
