Enzyme is Life

In the midst of a rapid change in research on treatment of cancer, enzyme treatment has recently come to the fore by leading society. The enzyme treatment has been started in the 1960s by Donald Kelly, a dentist who had a great interest in cancer treatment. In fact, Dr. Kelly had cured his own pancreatic cancer with a combination of enzyme and nutrient treatments. Further developed by Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, studies on enzyme treatment is being have been highly valued by National Institutes of Health. Surprisingly, the enzyme treatment goes way back to Scottish biologist John Beard in the 1900s.

He made a suggestion that digestive functions and pancreatic enzymes are human body’s ultimate defensive system to cancer. Additionally, he discovered that placenta cells, not only having similar structure to that of cancer cells, but also behave the same. By the time the fetus reaches about 4 months in the uterus, pancreas begins to activate, and the placenta simultaneously ceases its growth and acts like dying cancer cells. His hypothesis was that the fetus releases enzyme to control the placenta, otherwise if the enzyme is not released the placenta would continue to grow beyond the capacity of uterus making the environment dangerous for both the mother and fetus.

The following is a story of the enzyme treatment and John Beard based on resources from Integrative Functional Medicine Research Group, a subcommittee of the enrean Society of Integrative Medicine.

The Beginning of Enzyme Treatment started from the Placenta.

The origin of enzyme treatment started from the studies on placenta by Scottish biology genius, Dr. John Bread, whose major interest was on the organ that connects mammal mothers to their fetuses. From maternal blood, placenta supplies a myriad of nutrients and oxygen to the fetus, while collecting carbon dioxide and metabolic wastes from the fetus. The fetus’ growth would be impossible without the placenta in the maternal uterus. Placenta is a disk-like complex organ structure, approximately 5cm thick, 25cm in diameter, and 500grams in weight.

The formation of placenta begins from agglomeration of moving cells into the wall of uterus after fertilization, which appears like a small ball through a microscope. Among these cells, some secret powerful enzymes that transform embryo to fetus. Another cells, called trophoblast, play the role of attachment to the internal wall of uterus, eventually becoming a part of the placenta.

Dr. John Beard was fascinated by the initial phenomena of placenta cells effectively attaching to the internal wall of uterus. During his early research, he discovered a simple, but an astonishing fact that the form of the trophoblasts looks much similar to that of cancer cells on a microscope.

All normal cells in each individual membrane have unique forms according to their origins and roles. However, the noticeable difference between cancer cells and normal cells is that cancer cells have weaker level of cell differentiation than normal cells under a microscope.

Cells in the wall of a small intestine or a neuron have their unique forms, while pancreas cells have their own. As all cells within one organ have different forms according to their roles, pancreas cells that secret insulin have a different form from pancreas cells that secret pancreatic digestive enzyme substances like trypsin. However, However, cancer cells lose their initial unique property of cell differentiation.

In the beginning, the form of cancer cells looks similar to that of the cells from the same origin organ, but the similarity fades away as the cancer cells become more aggressive.

As a matter of fact, pathologists categorize certain cancer cells as “poorly differentiated” because the origin of cells is very diffi cult, even for experienced pathologists, to be specifi ed unless the origin is known.

Dr. Bread found out that not only the placenta cells look similar to cancer cells, but also trophoblasts behave like cancer cells. At that time of his discover, cancer biologists discussed behavioral difference between normal and cancer cells only.

Answer to Cancer Found on 56th Day

First, cancer cells are aggressive in a way they spread to normal cells by making enzymes that can break into a defensive membrane.

Second, cancer cells and tumor tissues can make their own network of blood supply to grow anywhere they want.

Third, cancer cells can grow without limit, as opposed to normal tissues and organs that only grow up to their necessity. For example, if one pair of an organ is removed, the remaining pair of an organ grows as twice as big to accommodate full functionality, fi lling up the absence of the other pair. If a substantial part of liver up to 80% is removed, the remaining liver cells regenerate to replace the absence of removed tissue until a stop signal is acknowledged at an appropriate time. However, cancer cells do not cease its growth without any control or limit, threatening the life of an organ. As Dr. Bread’s discovery, trophoblasts effectively penetrate into the wall of uterus like cancer cells.

The placenta, like the initial stage of cancer cell growth, creates its own blood supply for its growth and continuous penetration to the wall of uterus. Nonetheless, the placenta eventually slows down and cease it growth over time.

Dr. Bread found out that the aggressive and invasive characteristics of initial stage of placenta change to a gentle and stable organ during its growth. The fundamental of trophoblast’s growth has been explained, according to his studies, in which each placenta of all mammal species has different, unique point when the growth ceases. In human, placenta’s transition from aggressiveness to un-aggressiveness happens on 56th day since fertilization.

About 100 years after, Dr. Bread’s studies on development of fetus and placenta stand valid. On 56th day since fertilization, he realized there must be something that stimulates the transition of placenta cell’s initial aggressive characteristics, much similar to cancer cells, to a matured, essential organ.

Based on this fi nding, he believed that the answer to cancer could be found from the understanding of how the transition is stimulated. A growing fetus does not need any of digestive enzyme anyways since all necessary nutrients for growth are supplied through maternal blood in digested forms. Nonetheless, these digestive enzymes are produced substantially from approximately second month of nine months’ pregnancy.

Dr. Bread’s Discovery on Why Fetus Produces Enzymes.

Dr. Bread concluded that the reason a fetus produces enzyme is to control the placenta and to limit its growth. Otherwise, continuous growth of placenta would cause fatal deaths of both mother and fetus. He hypothesized that if the pancreatic protein-digestive enzyme actually controls the growth of placenta, the same enzyme could also control cancer cells because he believed the immature, or poorly differentiated, placenta cells are no different from the cancer cells.

From his initial research, he compared the behavior of cancer cell to placenta in a way that trophoblasts behave like cancer cells do.

As his research continues, his belief that the origin of cancer is placenta became stronger as the relationship between cancer and trophoblast is found to be much more correlated than anticipated. Although the studies have been carried out over 100 years, the origin of cancer is still debatable.

Some researchers are more inclined to believe that cancer cells are developed into “poorly differentiated,” invasive cells that are uncontrollable in growth due to some kind of factors that cause genetic variation within stable, mature cells in an organ. This theory must be assumed with a condition that mature cells must undergo a process of becoming “immature and non-specifi c”.

Studies on stem cells have recently been spotlighted world-widely by biomedical researchers since stem cells are primitive, non-differentiated cells that can be found in every organ.

Stem cells that comply to an appropriate signal begin to differentiate, eventually forming mature and functional tissue in an organ. The process of stem cell development, growth, and differentiation is acutely controlled.

If the stem cells do not differentiate into mature cells, they remain primitive, obtaining invasive ability cell to grow limitless. These primitive cells, if not controlled, eventually become lethal cancer cells.

I’ve seen that all cancers begin from placenta cells that lost appropriate controlling ability. The determining factor that controls the abnormal behavior of cells is the enzyme secreted from pancreas. – Dr. John Beard

Enzyme Is Life

There is a saying “Enzyme is life”.
Human body uses enzyme to produce energy, fight against disease, and catalyze digestion. There are two sources of enzyme in a body. First source comes from raw, uncooked food, and the other is produced from the human body itself. Edward Howell claimed, from his book “Enzyme Nutrition”, that 80% of a human body consists of enzyme.

Besides facilitating digestion and fi ght against diseases, enzymes play numerous important role in the physiology of a human body.

Some protein-digestive, or protease, enzymes, such as pancreatin, help breakdown of a cancer cell whose outer membrane is coated with protein lining to protect itself from body immune system.

Only after this breakdown process of cancer cell’s protein-coated membrane, natural killer cells of immune system can recognize and attack to destroy cancer cells. Although a pancreas constantly strives to produce enzyme to fight against cancer, the fight against cancer will eventually exhaust pancreas’ capability. With the development of new enzymes that fight against cancer carried out over few years, various enzyme products are currently being produced.

Consume Appropriate Enzyme Food

Even though many of us know we should consume food with abundant enzymes as they are essential living substances to our bodies, there are some limitations to consume enzymes. Busy businessmen, students, mothers with children are well aware of ways to keep healthy, but the execution of those healthy ways is not as easy as we all think.

Furthermore, we can’t help but to live in a stressful environment and consume unhealthy food during daily lives. In this kind of environment, one can still suffer from enzyme defi cit even after regular consumption of enzymes because the enzymes can be excessively consumed from many different places in a body. Therefore, appropriate consumption of enzyme from healthy food sources can be considered as recommended by many medical professionals. You can find suitable enzyme supplements for your body from markets. Consuming external enzyme regularly can help prevent diseases caused by enzyme deficiency as well as to keep you healthy by preserving limited produced enzyme from your body.
