It is curious that surgery, toxic chemicals, and radiation continue to be espoused by organized medicine as THE accepted therapy for cancer when, as a matter of fact, they are all merely palliative in nature. Focused on tumors which are merely end results of festering malignancies, they alleviate pain and/or make the condition appear less serious or offensive, BUT do not, at all, treat what causes the malignancy. This accounts for the recurrence and/or eventual metastasis. Cancer is a deficiency disease: the malignant tumor is merely a symptom of a basic chemistry malfunction where the body is unable to metabolize protein. Its effective control is contingent on addressing the lack of adequate amounts of active pancreatic enzymes and nutritional factors where they are needed. ‘It is just that simple. As a matter of fact, the true early signs of cancer are the signs of inadequate protein metabolism.’ [William Donald Kelley, One Answer to Cancer, 1974 edition, p.5]
Where tumors press on vital organs, cutting off functions, they have to be removed immediately. Otherwise, Dr. Kelley advocates first putting the patient on the enzyme/nutritional regimen for at least 12 weeks as, in a great majority of cases where surgery had been thought necessary, after at least 12 weeks on the protocol, there was no longer a mass to be removed. In cases where the mass is quite large, a part of it will still be intact after the 12 weeks, and the surgeon will need to keep a careful watch on it to be sure that it dissolves steadily, rather than going ahead with the surgery at that point. However, should surgery still be indicated after the 12 weeks, removing only the primary mass and keeping the patient on the proper nutritional metabolic program for control of any metastasis is his suggested protocol. Dr. Kelley was of the opinion that not only does the surgeon help patients survive cancer but that the success rate of the surgeon’s conservative and non-toxic management of cancer could only redound to the credit of the surgeon’s practice and reputation. [One Answer to Cancer, 1974 edition p.80]
Curiously, these fell on deaf ears.
G. Edward Griffin expounds that the reason why diseases are reluctantly accepted as deficiencies is because
…men tend to look for positive cause-and-effect relationships in which something clearly causes something else. They find it more difficult to comprehend the negative relationship in which nothing or the lack of something can cause an effect. But perhaps, of even more importance is the reality of intellectual pride. A man who has spent his life acquiring scientific knowledge far beyond the grasp of his fellow human beings is not usually inclined to listen with patience to someone who lacks that knowledge — especially if that person suggests that the solution to the scientist’s most puzzling medical problem is to be found in a simple back-woods or near-primitive concoction of herbs and foods. The scientist is trained to look for complex answers and tend to look with smug amusement upon solutions that are not dependent upon his hard-earned skills.
To bring this a little closer to home, the average MD today has spent over 10 years of intensive training to learn about health and disease. This educational process continues for as long as he practices his art. The greatest challenge to the medical profession today is cancer. If the solution to the cancer problem were to be found in the simplest food we eat (or don’t eat), then what other diseases might be traced to this cause? The implications are explosive. As one doctor put it so aptly, “Most of my medical training has been wasted. I’ve learned the wrong things!” And nobody wants to discover that they have learned – or taught – the wrong things. Hence, there is an unconscious but quite natural tendency among many scientists and physicians to reject the … deficiency concept of … diseases until it is proven, and proven, and proven again.’ [G. Edward Griffin, World Without Cancer, pp. 50-51]
Meanwhile, the daunting toxic side-effects of orthodox chemotherapy and radiation give cancer victims pause, feeds ‘denial’ (oh no, it can’t be cancer), delaying prompt action.
We have to look out for ourselves, to take responsibility for our health. After all, it’s my body, your body, no one else’s.
