A dentist called Dr. Kelley made the enzyme protocol famous in the 1970-90’s in the USA for helping thousands of cancer patients beat their disease. However, it was the earlier work of Dr. John in the early 20th century, who discovered the effect of pancreatic enzymes on cancer.
BACKGROUND TO THE ENZYME PROTOCOL.
In a 1902 article written for the British medical journal Lancet, the English scientist John Beard, at the time Professor at the University of Edinburgh, first proposed that the pancreatic enzyme trypsin represents the body’s primary defense against cancer and would be useful as a cancer treatment.
Beard came to his conclusion as the result of some 20 years of hard laboratory research, that today holds up to rigorous scientific scrutiny. His application to detail and his impeccable reputation lead to his nomination for the Nobel Prize in 1905 for his work in embryology.
In summing up Beard’s 20 years of research, he described that vagrant germ cells (adult stem cells – defined in the modern day) as primitive, undifferentiated and dispersed in all tissues in the body, with the potential to divide at any time during the lifetime of the host, with the ability to create all the various differentiated tissues in the body. This has been further supported by Dr. Max Wicha MD, professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan who stated in a published interview of Oncology New International ‘that there is a growing belief amongst researchers that many if not all cancers, whatever type or form, might originate from stem cells’.
A number of physicians in the early 20th century concluded after reviewing Beards’ research that he might be right, and with his support began employing injectable pancreatic enzymes in the treatment of their own patients diagnosed with advanced cancer, often with remarkable results as reported in the conventional scientific literature.
These successes seemed to provoke an even more intense backlash against the treatment, in a heated debate that lasted right through the first decade of the 20th century. In response to his critics, in 1911 Beard published The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis, outlining his hypothesis, his decades of research and the promising and compelling results.
Though released by a major London publisher to some very positive reviews, the book was soon forgotten as the scientific community and the media enthusiastically latched on to Madame Curie’s claim that radiation represented a simple, easy, non-toxic cure for cancer. It would be years before scientists realized radiation cured few cancers and was quite toxic—Madame Curie herself died as a result of her exposure to uranium—but by that time, Beard had passed away and was forgotten.
DR. WILLIAM DONALD KELLEY
After Dr. Beards death in 1924, the enzyme therapy was all but lost. However in the 1960s a dentist called Dr Kelley from Texas re-discovered Dr. Beards work and used the enzyme therapy for not only himself but also on thousands of other cancer patients.
Dr Kelley discovered one day that he had stage IV pancreatic cancer and with just months to live, experimented with Dr. Beards protocol, and over the coming months regained his health and lived to tell the tale, living another 30 years.
Dr Kelley experimented with different food combinations, macronutrient ratios and juicing raw foods to determine to best support for his body. He also introduced regular detoxification regimes to his program, like the Liver Gallbladder flush and Coffee enemas.
This adapted protocol then became known as the Kelley enzyme protocol for cancer. In the 1980’s Dr.Kelley recruited the support of Dr. Nick Gonzalez. Dr. Gonzalez investigated Dr. Kelley’s cancer patients and recorded their success from treatment by producing various monographs. Some of these monographs are now published in a book called One Man Alone: An investigation into cancer and William Donald Kelley. This book can be bought from Amazon. It is reported that over a period spanning 30 years into the late 1990’s Kelley treated over 30,000 patients with cancer, with over 90% having a five year survival rate. Dr Kelley passed away in 2005 but before he died he published two books,
“Cancer: Curing the incurable without Surgery, Chemotherapy, or Radiation” and
“One Answer to Cancer”
Dr. PAMELA McDOUGLE.
In the mid 1990s Dr. Kelley recruited Dr. Pamela Mcdougle to support him in his practice to help cancer patients. Dr. McDougle modified the protocol to utilise the very latest in Functional Medicine Practice and laboratory evaluations. She adapted the protocol to bring about the following changes:
1. A Standardised Diet – which is applied for everyone. Low in sugar, high in alkalinity, pre-dominately raw food based.
2. Customised Supplement regime based upon Functional Medicine evaluations.
3. An Additional detoxification method was applied using Infra Red Saunas, based upon sound research and application in other alternative cancer clinics and clinical evaluations.
MILES PRICE attended an intensive training program in the application of the cancer protocol under the tutelage of Dr. Mcdougle, in 2012, and has been applying the protocol from LIFE Clinic for a variety of cancer patients.
