Asked by AH: My brother is finally getting serious about fighting cancer but is unwilling or unable to spend the money needed to follow the full Kelley Program, how many enzymes does it take to do some good?
Response from Dale:
Here is the analogy I frequently share when asked this question:
Imagine looking out on the horizon, to the far left is the 0% enzyme amount location and to the far right is the “Therapeutic Enzyme Amount (54 grams per day)” location.
Somewhere near the middle of the line is the homeostasis amount. This is the amount of enzymes needed for your body to maintain it's free-from-cancer status (this is when the proper amount of enzymes are created daily by your pancreas to seek and destroy any anomalous cells as they are identified by your immune system). When cancer is present it means that, at some point in the past, the amount of cancer stimulants in your body overwhelmed your pancreas' ability to produce enough enzymes to keep you cancer-free and it began to lose the battle.
The amount of enzymes needed to stop more cancer from developing will vary greatly from person to person and I cannot name a number that is the “ideal” number for your brother. The more enzymes consumed the more likely the cancer load is going to be lessened.
The Kelley Enzymes are superior in braking a tumor to the 1200 USP tablet pancreatin due to the difference in the ability to break through the membrane protecting tumor cancers.
The reason we start with 54 grams per day of enzymes is because that amount has proven to be the amount needed to destroy cancer cells as well as digest the food that is eaten daily. As the balance point moves toward the amount needed to maintain homeostasis the “maintenance” dosage changes.
