Cancer Weakness #8 – Enzymes and Digestion
This is one of those products that I take with every meal. Every person, whether healthy or ill, should be using a high quality digestive enzyme. You will be healthier as you age, and your digestion will also improve. In addition, it helps deal with the big picture of low enzyme levels leading to cancer. Because of the vast amount of research showing that people with cancer have low levels of enzymes, and because it supports the overall health of the body, takes a strain off the immune system, helps you absorb food and nutrients , helps you kill cancer cells and clean out the arteries, enzymes are one of the basic supplements to be using.
Each of the 180 capsules in a bottle of PhytoBio Enzymes contains 120,000 units of protease to digest protein, 8000 units of lipase to digest fats, 18,000 of Amylase to digest carbohydrates. With high amounts of a number of other plant based digestive enzymes and trace minerals, it is an excellent value.
Suggested use is to take 1 with each meal to improve digestion and 3 or more just before you go to bed on an empty stomach. They will, on an empty stomach, get into the bloodstream and start to clean it up. Its extremely high levels of protease may help to break down the fibrin coating all cancerous tumors so that the immune system can better attack those tumors.
I have heard many stories of enzymes being taken in high amounts to get rid of cancer. The range you would want to take to seriously fight cancer would be in the 30 capsules a day on an empty stomach. That’s about five bottles a month.
As enzymes are so intimately connected up with digestion, I’m going to spend a little time discussing another important digestive issue, the probiotics or friendly organisms that live in our intestinal tract. A healthy person will literally have pounds of friendly bacteria and other micro-organisms living in their guts. Not only do they complete the digestive process, producing many vitamins, breaking down food, and killing pathogens, but they play a major role in the immune system. Some nutritionists say that they are the main component of the immune system.
We are exposed to many things that kill our intestinal friendly organism immune system. Antibiotics and many other medications – including chemotherapy, chlorinated water, birth control pills, and more. Lack of friendly organisms is the primary cause of candida fungal overgrowth. Even if you have been aware of this and have been eating yogurt or taking probiotics, you most likely still are deficient. It turns out that very few yogurts contain live bacteria, and even in those that do, the bacteria does not colonize and regrow in the intestinal tract.
Most probiotic supplements fail to deliver many live organisms into the intestines. For two reasons.
- First, many of them die while the product sits on the shelves. Refrigeration is used to slow down their metabolism and keep more alive, but studies consistently show that a great many of the live bacteria die in the bottle.
- Even more destructive is the stomach environment where the acids kills the friendly bacteria. Studies show that not much makes its way to the intestines.
Total Immune Booster contains 67 different organisms that colonize the intestinal tract very well. They are asleep in the capsules so they don’t die, and they grow best in high acidity so they get through the stomach environment without being killed.
There are other products that can help these organisms grow & foods that get more into the intestines. Unlike yogurt, kefir is a fermented milk product that has many different micro-organisms that do colonize the intestinal tract. You can make your own. It’s best to use organic milk, non-homogenized and raw is the ideal way to go. I buy mine from OrganicPastures.com. Get a good Kefir Starter and make your own kefir with that milk. It’s easy. There are many studies showing that live fermented foods like kefir or live fermented vegetables are powerful cancer fighters.
EcoBloom is inulin or FOS, a 100% chicory extract that feeds the friendly bacteria in the intestines, helping them to grow and reproduce. EcoBloom quickly boosts the growth of beneficial micro flora. This suppresses the growth of pathogens, reduces toxins in the liver and colon, and stimulates the immune system.
Research has shown FOS with beneficial bacteria reduce the pH of the colon thus enhancing mineral absorption, especially calcium. You can add it to just about anything including hot and cold beverages, especially your live cultured foods as it will help them be more potent.
Vitality Supergreen is a green drink with a difference. It is designed to support the friendly micro flora in the intestines and to repair and heal the intestinal walls. Not only does it have usual algae and grasses and vegetables found in any good green drink, (many of them fermented for better absorption and nutrition) but it has a number of ingredients that repair and heal the intestinal lining. Glutimmune (peptide-bonded Glutamine); Chicory Root Inulin (fiber); Flax Seed Fiber; Lecithin (GMO free) and Aloe Vera Extract (200:1). And a strong anti-oxidant immune support blend of Rice X (stabilized anti-oxidant from rice bran); Acerola extract; Rhodiola Rosea; Bilberry Extract; Biovin Grapeseed Extract; Beta 1,3 glucan.
Vitality Supergreen is a good choice for a green drink powder with its additional focus on intestinal support. It taste, while good, is improved, according to Body Ecology, is improved by a few drops of Stevia.
Stevia is the ideal sweetener when fighting cancer. Sugars of any type feed cancer cells. Artificial sweeteners are basically toxic and cancer causing. Stevia is safe, sweet and even health promoting. According to Dr. Whittaker, studies suggest that stevia has a regulating effect on the pancreas and could help stabilize blood sugar levels in the body, therefore making it a safe dietary supplement for people with diabetes, hypoglycemia, and candidiasis.
But it was only after tasting this BED brand of liquid stevia which has no aftertaste that it became the sweetener of choice for me. It is the best tasting stevia I have found. This extract was developed by taking only the sweet-tasting rebaudioside crystals, leaving behind the licorice-like flavor from the leaves and creating the ideal alternative to synthetic sweeteners. If you are fighting cancer, it is well worth trying.
