Enzyme Therapy and Cancer

There are hundreds of ways to heal cancer and enzyme therapy is seen to be a very effective treatment.

The idea of healing cancer with enzymes was first discovered by Dr John Beard, an embryologist who spent 20 years researching cancer.

He found that pancreatic enzymes were not present in the blood of cancer patients.  Although his first article was published in 1902, his theory about cancer still holds up to rigorous scientific scrutiny.

Dr John Beard proposed in 1906 that pancreatic proteolytic digestive enzymes represent the body’s main defence against cancer, and that enzyme therapy would be useful as a treatment for all types of cancer.

During the first two decades of the twentieth century, Dr Beard’s thesis attracted some attention in academic circles, and several case reports in the medical literature documented tumour regression and even remission in terminal cancer patients treated with proteolytic enzymes.

In 1911, Dr Beard published a monograph entitled The Enzyme Therapy of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis, which summarised his therapy and the supporting evidence.

After Dr Beard’s death in 1923, the enzyme therapy was largely forgotten. Periodically, other practitioners have rediscovered Dr Beard’s work, and used pancreatic proteolytic enzymes as an alternative cancer treatment.

A Texas dentist by the name of William Donald Kelley established a similar theory based on Beard’s work nearly forty years later.

Kelley cured himself of advanced pancreatic cancer using a protocol largely reliant on nutrition and mega doses of pancreatic enzyme supplementation. He went on to successfully treat thousands of other “terminal” cancer patients; but despite his extraordinary achievements, he was ostracised by the medical community who refused (and still refuses) to accept that natural, non-toxic substances are effective treatments against cancer.


Using Enzymes as a Cancer Treatment

Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez is known for using enzymes to treat cancer. In this video he talks about the history of their use, how they work and how he uses them as a treatment.


New York City cancer specialist Nicholas Gonzalez, MD began a case review of Kelley’s patients beginning in 1981 while still a med student at Cornell University. This included research into oral pancreatic enzymes for cancer treatment, and eventually led to his own practice utilising the enzyme approach with advanced cancer patients. He continues to treat his patients with natural therapies and enzymes based on the work of Beard and Kelley

Beard made the observation that the aggressive growth of the placenta and the attachment in the uterine wall was very similar to that of cancer cells. The placenta created its own blood flow, had undifferentiated cells, divided without restraint and invaded the uterine tissue. But what prevented the placenta from overtaking the whole uterus and becoming stable? The day that the embryo began to create and secrete pancreatic enzymes, the placenta stopped growing and stabilised.

In a very similar way, cancer cells are primitive cells that begin dividing and multiplying, create their own blood-flow and invade other tissues. Thousands of cancer patients have reversed their disease by ingesting high doses of pancreatic enzymes, changing their diets and adding detoxification routines to their lifestyle.


Enzymes have 2 functions:

  1. They stop the division and spread of cancer cells
  2. Cancer cells are coated with 17 layers of fibrin that prevents the Immune System from detecting them. High doses of pancreatic enzymes will “eat through” that protective coating and make the cancer cells more vulnerable.


Most people are enzyme deficient for 3 main reasons:

  1. They eat mostly cooked and adulterated food that is enzyme-deficient
  2. They do not eat enough raw food that is enzyme-rich
  3. They have stressed the pancreas to the max by ingesting refined sugars and carbohydrates for most of their life

It is very simple to add enzymes to your daily routine every time you eat. For therapeutic purposes, take enzymes between meals.

Healthy individuals can take small doses of both digestive enzymes with meals and metabolic enzymes on an empty stomach in order to maintain health and prevent a deficiency over time. Pregnant women should always consult a health care provider before beginning a regime of supplementation.

For people with serious health challenges it may be best to begin oral enzyme supplementation with small doses, gradually increasing until maximum benefits are felt. Supplementing between meals with as many as 40-60 systemic enzymes as a daily therapeutic dose for cancer patients is not uncommon. A natural health care practitioner can assist in deciding the proper supplement type and dosage.

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
