SUBJECT: PANCREATIC CANCER
And they said it was witchcraft!
* Pancreatic cancer patients may soon have a new treatment regimen for their deadly disease: vitamins, raw fruit, whole grains ... and two daily coffee enemas.
* It may sound strange, but the National Institutes of Health has allocated $1.4 million to study the protocol, and mainstream doctors believe it may be a breakthrough. In a preliminary study, the protocol tripled survival times and patients who had been expected to die within weeks are still alive today.
* Even those working with the study had their doubts at first. Lead investigator Dr. John Cabot of Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York "was completely skeptical," he said. But after reviewing the data, he decided the therapy was worth a shot.
* The regimen, created and administered by New York immunologist Dr. Nicholas Gonzales, consists of a strict diet that excludes red meat, poultry, fried foods, alcohol and refined sugar and white flour products; patients are also given a battery of about 140 vitamin, mineral and enzyme tablets.
* Pancreatic enzymes derived from pigs "are the main anti-cancer element of the program," Gonzales said. And in what may sound bizarre, the program includes two daily coffee enemas, a "critically important part of the treatment." The enemas "help the body effectively neutralize and excrete metabolic wastes and tumor breakdown products," according to literature given to prospective patients.
* "We don't prescribe them to improve bowel movements," Gonzales said, "but because they seem to help the liver work better." Pancreatic cancer patients currently face a dire prognosis: The average survival rate after diagnosis is a mere five months. "It's the worst cancer there is," Gonzales said. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are often ineffective and, as the fourth-deadliest cancer in the United States, it kills 27,000 annually.
* Cabot said the seemingly strange use of coffee enemas has not kept prospective patients away. Actually, the study has had the opposite problem: The 90 or so patients who have inquired about enrolling were so eager to try the new treatment they refused to take the 50 percent chance of being given chemotherapy, which is being used as a control to test the new protocol's efficiency. Only two patients have enrolled, and one subsequently dropped out.
* "We're having a very hard time ... it's because the treatments are so different," said Cabot, and desperate patients want to try the next new thing. The current chemotherapy available promises, at best, a "slight prolongation of life and a significant improvement in ... quality of life," according to the literature provided to patients.
* He hopes to eventually enroll about 90 participants in the five-year study, funded under the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
* It certainly may not be for everyone. " There are people out there who want chemotherapy and who would rather die than have a coffee enema, and that's fine," Gonzales said.
How Does It Work?
* "I have tried not to go there intellectually and I'm consciously avoiding asking the question of how the regimen might work," he said.
* But regardless of how it works, if the regimen is successful it will offer new hope to patients who currently have none.
* "When you can turn people around who have been told they'll be dead in six or eight weeks, you'll do anything for them," Gonzales said. "The whole world may not want to do this, but someday it could be mainstream."
The Cancer Treatment So Successful - Traditional Doctors SHUT it Down
By Dr. Mercola
New York City physician and cancer specialist Dr. Nick Gonzalez focuses on alternative cancer treatment using a three-pronged nutritional approach. He’s had remarkable success treating patients diagnosed with some of the most lethal forms of cancer that conventional medicine cannot effectively address.
Alternative cancer treatments are a kind of "forbidden area" in medicine, but Dr. Gonzalez chose to go that route anyway, and has some remarkable success stories to show for his pioneering work.
He didn't set out to treat cancer at first, let alone treat patients. His original plan was to be a basic science researcher at Sloan-Kettering, a teaching hospital for Cornell Medical College. He had a chance meeting with William Kelley, a controversial dentist who was one of the founders of nutritional typing. Dr. Kelley had been practicing alternative and nutritional approaches for over two decades at the time, leading him to begin a student project investigation of Kelley's work in the summer of 1981.
"I started going through his records and even though I was just a second year medical student, I could see right away there were cases that were extraordinary," he says. "Patients with appropriately diagnosed pancreatic cancer, metastatic breast cancer in the bone, metastatic colorectal cancer... who were alive 5, 10, 15 years later under Kelley's care with a nutritional approach."
This preliminary review led to a formal research study, which Dr. Gonzalez completed while doing his fellowship in cancer, immunology and bone marrow transplantation.
The "Impossible" Recoveries of Dr. Kelley's Cancer Patients
After going through thousands of Kelley's records, Dr. Gonzalez put together a monograph, divided into three sections:
According to Dr. Good, the president of Sloan-Kettering who had become Gonzalez' mentor, if Kelley could produce even one patient with appropriately diagnosed pancreatic cancer who was alive 5-10 years later, it would be remarkable. They ultimately tracked down 22 of Kelley's cases. Ten of them met him once and didn't do the program after being dissuaded by family members or doctors who thought Kelley was a quack.
The average survival for that group was about 60 days.
A second group of seven patients who did the therapy partially and incompletely (again, dissuaded by well-intentioned but misguided family members or doctors), had an average survival of 300 days.
The third group consisting of five patients, who were appropriately diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer and who completed the full program, had an average survival of eight and a half years! In Dr. Gonzalez' words, this was "just unheard of in medicine."
One of those patients included a woman diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with stage four pancreatic cancer who had been given six months to live. She'd learned about Kelley's program through a local health food store. She completed his treatment and is still alive today, 29 years later.
The Truth about Medical Journals: Why Gonzalez's Book Was Never Published
However, despite-or rather because of-the remarkable success of the treatment, Gonzalez couldn't get his findings published.
"We tried to publish case reports in the medical journals; the whole book, parts of the book, individual case reports-with no success," he says.
This is an important point that many fail to realize.
Those of us who practice natural medicine are frequently criticized for not publishing our findings. My justification for that is that it's not going to be published anyway, and Dr. Gonzalez' anecdotal story confirms this view.
His mentor and supporter, Dr. Good, was one of the most published authors in the scientific literature at that point, with over 2,000 scientific articles to his name. He'd been nominated for the Nobel Prize three times, and yet he was refused because the findings were "too controversial," and flew in the face of conventional medical doctrine.
If the cream of the crop is refused, how does a general primary care physician get an article published?
"Robert Good was at the top of his profession: President of Sloan-Kettering, father of modern immunology, and did the first bone marrow transplant in history. Yet, he couldn't get it published," Gonzalez says. "He couldn't even get a single case report published.
In fact, I have a letter from one of the editors, dated 1987, who wrote a blistering letter to Good saying, "You've been boondoggled by a crazy quack guy. Don't you see this is all a fraud?"
It was just the most extraordinary, irrational letter... [Because] the patients' names were there, the copies of their pertinent medical records were there... Any of them could have called these patients, like Arlene Van Straten who, 29 years later, will talk to anyone... But no one cared. They wouldn't do it; they didn't believe it.
They couldn't believe it.
It was very disturbing to
me because I say, "It is what it is." I come out of a very conventional
research orientation, and it was astonishing to me-I had assistance; I
had the president of Sloane-Kettering who couldn't get this thing published
because it disagreed with the philosophy that was being promoted in medicine;
that only chemotherapy, radiation, or immunotherapy can successfully treat
cancer, even though the success rate was abysmal.
By the end of 1987, it was clear that the work would never get published, and since Dr. Good had retired from Sloan-Kettering, they no longer had the power-base to conduct clinical trials.
Dr. Kelley, realizing his work would never be accepted, let alone get published, "went off the deep end," in Dr. Gonzalez' words, and stopped seeing patients altogether.
"When I last spoke to him in the summer of 1987, he accused me of being part of a CIA plot to steal his work, and I knew that I had to move on," Dr. Gonzalez says.
"To this day, of course, I give him credit for his brilliant innovation. It's kind of like Semmelweis, who ended up going crazy during the 19th century after showing doctors should wash their hands before delivering babies and no one accepted that. Semmelweis just went off the deep end, and that's what kind of what happened to Kelley, I say with great sadness."
Starting the Alternative Cancer Treatment Practice
Dr. Gonzalez set up a practice in New York together with his associate, Dr. Linda Isaacs, and started seeing patients using Kelley's three-pronged approach. The results were impressive.
One of his remarkable success stories includes a woman diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, which is the most aggressive form. She'd been given a death sentence.
Today, over 23 years later, she's still alive and well, and cancer free.
"Here's a woman that was given six months to a year to live AND developed metastases while getting aggressive multi-agent chemotherapy, yet 23 and a half years later, she's alive and well, enjoying her life and just doing so well.
We could see that Kelley's approach really worked and when I report these cases I'm giving Kelley the credit because he developed this treatment," Dr. Gonzalez says.
Recognition from the National Cancer Institute
In 1993, as part of a legitimate effort to reach out to alternative practitioners, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) invited Dr. Gonzalez to present 25 of his cases in a closed-door, invitation-only session. On the basis of that presentation, the NCI suggested he conduct a pilot study with patients diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer, which in conventional medicine is known to be an untreatable, highly lethal form of cancer.
Interestingly, Nestle stepped in to finance this pilot study. It may seem an odd choice, but the business motivation was the same then as it is today-making junk food appear healthier is a good business move, even if it's only in theory.
Supervised directly by Dr. Ernst Wynder, a premier cancer researcher, the study was completed in early 1999 and published in June that year. According to Dr. Gonzalez:
"It showed the best results for the treatment of pancreatic cancer in the history of medicine."
Chemo Therapy vs. the Kelley Treatment
To put his results in perspective, the chemo drug, Gemzar, approved for pancreatic cancer dates back to 1997, and the major study that led to its approval had 126 patients. Of those, 18 percent lived one year. Not a single patient out of the 126 lived beyond 19 months.
Dr. Gonzalez' study had 11 participants, of which:
Five survived for two years
Based on these results, the NCI decided to fund a large-scale clinical trial, to the tune of $1.4 million, to test his nutritional approach against the best chemo available at the time.
"My friends say, "Why did you get involved with something like this? How could you trust the NCI?"
Well, the NCI had been very fair, up to that point, and the then-director, Richard Klausner, in face-to-face meetings with him said he thought I was doing something really interesting and needed to be properly supported," Dr. Gonzalez says.
But that goodwill soon disappeared.
How to Sabotage a Clinical Study 101
About a year after the study was approved, Klausner left the NCI and was replaced by new management with a wholly different attitude.
"[F]rom our first meeting, we knew something has changed significantly," Dr. Gonzalez says," and all the people that had initially been assigned to the study, who were supportive and believed we were doing something useful, were taken off it. In fact one of them couldn't even talk to me. She said she'd be fired if she talked to me; if she took my phone call.
I was told by another person who had supported me at the NIH that I shouldn't call him at his office; that he was afraid his line was tapped, and I should only call him at home.
That's how insane the politics over this clinical study got. I couldn't believe it! I thought this was just something you'd read about or see on TV, or that some paranoid or crazy person would make up. But here I was living it. Coming out of Robert Good's group, I don't say that to impress people, but my background is so pure and conventional! It was unbelievable to see that the profession I respected and wanted to join could behave like this."
Unfortunately, the study was, in the end, sabotaged.
"Turned out the principal investigator at Columbia, who's supposed to be completely neutral, had helped develop a chemo regimen that was being used against us-a conflict of interest that was never declared," Dr. Gonzalez explains.
"[T]here are specific requirements for entry into a clinical study. Ours is a nutritional program, and when the first protocol version was written, we had a list of specified criteria... They have to be able to eat... Ours is a nutritional program, so patients have to be able to eat. If they can't eat, they can't do the therapy. They have to be able to take care of themselves...
This is a program the patients have to follow at home.
... Initially, the patients could do it and responded to the treatment. Then, there was a sudden change, around 2000-2001, when the Columbia group took total control of the entry of patients in the study. We were excluded from that process, except during the initial months. The thinking was that if we were involved in the admission process, we'd enter the dreaded bias, whereas if conventional doctors were in control, they couldn't possibly be biased.
Of course, the chief investigator helped develop the chemo regimen used in the study. That's virtually the definition of a 'potential bias'!
He started sending us patients that couldn't eat. We had patients that were so sick we would never have accepted them into our private practice. That were so sick, they died before they got the treatment.
Whether it was a trick to the protocol or not, the Columbia team, the NCI, and the NHI insisted that we had an "intent to treat provision into protocol". This means that the minute a patient is accepted into the trial, they're considered treated, even if they never do the therapy. So the chief of the study at Columbia would enter patients that were so sick, several died before they could pursue their treatment. But because of this intent to treat provision into protocol, they were considered treatment failures.
Ultimately, 39 patients were entered for treatment. Maybe at best, being kind and optimistic, maybe five or six actually did it, the great majority were so sick they couldn't do it."
As a result, the chemo treatment appeared to be a clear winner in this head-to-head evaluation of treatments against incurable pancreatic cancer.
In 2006, Dr. Gonzalez and his partner filed a complaint with the Office of the Human Research Protection (OHRP), which is a group responsible for making sure federal-funded clinical trials are run properly. After a two-year investigation, the OHRP determined that 42 out of 62 patients had been admitted inappropriately. Unfortunately, this never made it to the media, and the Columbia team was able to publish the research findings without mentioning the results of the OHRP review.
"So the study was a total boondoggle; a waste of $1.4 million," Dr. Gonzalez says. "Even though I won the grant, all the money went to Columbia. It's all gone. The data, as far as I'm concerned, is worthless, and the NIH and NCI are using it to show that my therapy doesn't work.
So that's how this long journey of 30 years, from when I first met Kelley, has gone.
"I tell people now regarding the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), I wouldn't send a dog to that group.
They're not there to help you objectively investigate alternative therapies; they're there to undermine them. It gives the illusion that the government's interested in alternative therapies, when in fact that office is being used, as it was in my case, to help undermine promising useful alternative therapies."
Gonzalez's Three-Pronged Approach to Cancer Treatment
Although most of the studies done on this approach were done on pancreatic cancer, Dr. Gonzalez uses it to treat ALL cancers, from brain cancer to leukemia. His treatment, which is based on Kelley's work, consists of three protocols: diet, supplements and enzymes, and detoxification.
The Dietary Protocol:
The cornerstone of the treatment is a personalized diet based on your nutritional - or metabolic type (which happens to be a key component of my own optimized nutrition plan).
Dr. Kelley originally had 10 basic diets and 90 variations that ranged from pure vegetarian and raw food, to heavy-protein meals that included red meat three times a day.
"In terms of diet, Kelley... found that patients diagnosed with the typical solid tumors: tumors of the breast, lungs, stomach, pancreas, liver, colon, uterus, ovaries, and prostate needed a more vegetarian diet," Dr. Gonzalez explains. "But he had all gradations of a vegetarian diet; one that was 80 percent raw, one that was 80 percent cooked. So even on the vegetarian side, there were all different variations.
Some had minimal animal protein, some had fish, some had also red meat.
A patient with immune cancer (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and sarcomas, (which are connective tissue cancers that are related to immune cancers) tended to do best on a high-fat, high meat diet.
... Then there are balanced people that do well with a variety of foods, both plant foods and animal products, but they don't tend to get cancer.
Cancer tends to occur on the extremes, the extreme vegetarians-those that tend to be too acid-or extreme meat eaters, who tend to be too alkaline. Balanced people don’t tend to get cancer too much. So we continued the individualized approach, as did Kelley."
Individualized Supplementation and Enzyme Protocol:
The second component is an individualized supplement protocol, designed for your particular metabolism.
"For example, our vegetarian patients need completely different supplements from our meat eaters. The vegetarians do very well with most of the B vitamins, while the meat eaters don't. The vegetarians don't do well with vitamin A, but the meat eaters do. The vegetarians do well with vitamin D; the meat eaters not so well with large doses, and so on," Dr. Gonzalez explains.
"The meat eaters do well with calcium ascorbate as a vitamin C source, while the vegetarians do well with large doses of ascorbic acid. So the supplement protocols are very individualized and very precisely engineered."
Omega-3 fats are also prescribed, but even here Dr. Gonzalez prescribes different types of omega-3's depending on the patient's nutritional type. In his experience, vegetarians, or carbohydrate types, tend to fare better on flaxseed oil, which contains alpha linoleic acid (ALA) - a plant-based omega 3.
"It is thought that the conversion of the plant-based ALA into the fish-oil based eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is not that efficient," he says, "But we find that our vegetarian patients actually do it very well and don't use the fish oil or animal-based omega-3 fatty acids as effectively."
Chia and hemp seed oils can also be used.
Protein types, on the other hand, appear to need the EPA and the DHA and do better on animal-based omega-3 such as krill oil.
"They don't do well with flaxseed," he says. "Those are the people who can't make the conversion."
In addition to vitamins, minerals and trace elements, he also prescribes large doses of pancreatic enzymes.
"The essence of Kelley's work was based on the work of Dr. Beard, which goes back to the turn of the last century, about 110 years ago. Beard was a professor at the University of Edinburg, an embryologist actually, not a medical researcher, who first proposed that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes are the main defense against cancer in the body and are useful as a cancer treatment," he explains.
When treating cancer, however, he found it's important to take the right ratio of active and inactive enzymes. The inactive precursors are particularly active against cancer. They also have far longer shelf life, and are more stable.
"That would be my advice - get an enzyme that isn't completely activated," Dr. Gonzalez says. "More active isn't better when it comes to pancreatic enzymes, just like more and more D isn't better than getting the right dosage. You want the right proportions of activated and inactive-most of it as an inactive precursor."
His proprietary enzyme formula is manufactured by NutriCology. According to Dr. Gonzalez, pancreatic enzymes are not only useful as treatment for active cancer but are also one of the best preventive measures.
Antioxidants, such as astaxanthin, are also very helpful, both in the prevention and treatment of cancer.
The Detoxification Protocol:
The third component is a detoxification routine. Coffee enemas are used to help your liver and kidneys to mobilize and eliminate dead cancer cells that have been broken down by the pancreatic enzymes.
Coffee enemas, although often scoffed at today, were actually used as part of conventional medicine all the way up to the 1960s, and were included in the Merck Manual, which was a handbook for conventional medical treatments into the 1970s.
"They fell out of favor not because they didn't work, but because the drug industry took over medicine, so things like coffee enemas were kind of laughed at," Dr. Gonzalez says. "So Kelley learned about coffee enemas from conventional literature and incorporated them into his program and found them extremely helpful."
When you drink coffee, it tends to suppress your liver function, but when taken rectally as an enema, the caffeine stimulates nerves in your lower bowels, which causes your liver to release toxins as a reflex. Other detox strategies include colon cleanses and liver flushes developed by Kelley.
It's important to realize, however, that conventional coffee should NOT be used for enemas. The coffee MUST be organic, naturally caffeinated coffee, and were you to do this at home, you'd also want to use non-bleached filters to avoid introducing toxins into your colon.
"[Organic coffee] is loaded with antioxidants," Dr. Gonzalez says. "In fact, there are recent studies showing that coffee loaded with antioxidants can have an anti-cancer effect and that coffee may actually help suppress cancer.
But you have to use organic coffee, it has to have caffeine, and you have to use a coffee maker that doesn't have aluminum, and preferably no plastic."
Dr. Gonzalez also relies on sodium alginate as a detoxifying agent.
"We have a preparation that we put together and it's very effective... It's an algae and it chelates heavy metals and halides. I never use intravenous chelation; we just use sodium alginate."
He recommends taking three capsules three times a day, away from meals, for six weeks to detoxify your body of heavy metals, such as mercury, and halides.
This is one of the most fascinating interviews I've ever done, and it is chock full of information-far more than I can summarize here. So please, I urge you to take the time to listen to the interview in its entirety.
In addition to expounding on the subjects mentioned above, Dr. Gonzalez also reviews the benefits of optimizing vitamin D during cancer treatment, and how iodine supplementation can benefit breast cancer-not to mention help protect against thyroid cancer, in light of the current nuclear crisis in Japan.
We discuss the benefits of juicing and chiropractic adjustments, and the importance of regular exercise for cancer patients. We also review the dangers of electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure, in terms of how it may aggravate cancer growth and hinder cancer recovery, and the benefits, along with some surprising precautions, of Earthing or grounding.
For more information about Dr. Gonzalez and his practice, see www.dr-gonzalez.com. He's also working on a series of books, two of which have already been published and received five-star reviews: The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, and One Man Alone: An Investigation of Nutrition, Cancer, and William Donald Kelley , which is the original monograph of Dr. Kelley's work that he couldn't get published 23 years ago.

Slows Pancreatic Cancer
William Donald Kelley, D.D.S. ( November 1, 1925 — January 30, 2005)
by Bonnie O’Sullivan
"Dr. Kelley was a brilliant cancer researcher and, after curing himself in 1963 of metastasized pancreatic cancer, never wavered in his belief that pancreatic enzymes, coffee enemas, and a diet based on your particular metabolic type are, together, the answer to healing and preventing cancer.
William Donald Kelley, D.D.S.,
Overcomes Pancreatic Cancer in 1963
Dr. Kelley went home and began researching cancer. He read that in 1906 a Scottish embryologist, Dr John Beard, proposed that pancreatic enzymes represented the body’s main defense against cancer.
In 1911 Dr Beard published The Enzyme Therapy of Cancer, but after his death in 1923 the theory was basically forgotten, especially with the advent of Marie Curie and her radiation work.
Dr. Beard believed pancreatic enzymes had to be injected to prevent destruction by hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
In the 1930s and 1940s a number of documented experiments were published proving that orally ingested pancreatic enzymes in both animals and human studies are absorbed active and intact in the gut and serve a variety of physiological functions. The easiest way to document this is with a 24-hour check of the urine. If you feed a patient a large amount of pancreatic enzymes and check their urine for 24 hours, you can see how much of the enzymes are excreted in the urine. Virtually 100% of what you take orally is found in the urine, not in the intestinal tract, which means that they have to be absorbed.
Further evidence demonstrated that orally ingested pancreatic enzymes are acid stable, pass intact into the small intestine and are absorbed through the intestinal mucosa into the blood stream as part of an entero-pancreatic recycling process.
Kelley took the work of Beard and theorized that the formation of cancer was clear. Excess female hormones were responsible for changing a stem cell into a trophoblast cell. In simple English, this means that cancer is the growth of normal tissue, but at the wrong time and in the wrong place. It progresses because of a lack of cancer digesting enzymes in the body and Kelley believed the pancreas, through its enzymes, was the primary cancer fighter in the body. So his solution was to get pancreatic enzymes (freeze dried porcine pancreatic enzymes in capsules) to the cancer site and not only inhibit the growth, reverse the growth, but control the rate of attack, otherwise toxins would flood the body and cause all sorts of physical problems; high fever, chills, sweats, and other symptoms of a severe case of the flu.
Dr. Kelley went through his medical textbooks searching for some way of alleviating these symptoms and allowing the enzymes to work. The one thing that kept coming back to him was the coffee enema. For instance, he found that coffee enemas had been advocated in the Merck Manual from 1890 to 1977. When he reluctantly gave himself his first coffee enema he was amazed that within 30 minutes his temperature went from 104° to 99° and his muscle aches and pains resolved. It was then that he devised his on again, off again regime of taking the pancreatic enzymes, all the while taking 2 or 3 coffee enemas a day.
Dr. Kelley’s mother suggested the third part of his regime; change your diet from junk food to fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains. This made sense as, while researching enzymes, he learned that cooking kills the enzymes that are in raw food, which are needed to digest the food.
Within months of following his regime his doctor pronounced Dr. Kelley cancer free and, by word of mouth, people with cancer or with loved ones with cancer came from near and far to get Dr. Kelley’s advice on how to overcome it.
While helping others cure themselves of cancer, Dr. Kelley discovered 12 different Metabolic Types, in which different people, because of genetic heritage and environmental factors have different requirements for vegetarian or carnivorous diets, raw and/or cooked.
Thousands of cancer victims are alive today because they followed Dr. Kelley’s cancer eliminating regime that he published in his “Do-It-Yourself” booklets, One Answer To Cancer and Dr. Kelley’sSelf Test for The Different Metabolic Types (this booklet helps you discover your Metabolic Type and what foods are best for you).
Dr. Kelley Took Me Under His
Wing in 1998
He helped me in many ways from introducing me to a banker that set me up with a credit card acceptance account to improving my relationship with Dale by sharing with me (and subsequently giving me permission to publish) his 1970’s Dr. Kelley’sSelf Test for The Different Metabolic Types booklet.
Scoring my Metabolic Typing test results proved that it is necessary for me to eat red meat to stay healthy. I do well without hydrochloric acid or pancreatic enzymes (except during allergy season when I have no allergies as long as I take plenty of pancreatic enzymes with each meal — otherwise I suffer with itchy eyes and a runny nose all of May and part of June in Walnut Creek).
Taking the test, which took several hours, was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Also, discovering Dale’s metabolic type (on a 1998 car trip from the San Francisco Bay area to Phoenix I read the questions to him and recorded his answers as he drove) was a real eye-opener. It turns out he is in the Balanced Category of Dr. Kelley’s Metabolic Chart (the chart comes with Dr. Kelley’sSelf Test for The Different Metabolic Types booklet), which means he falls in the middle between doing well as a vegetarian and doing well eating red meat, but he needs hydrochloric acid and pancreatic enzymes daily. He also needs a wide variety of foods either cooked or raw.
Dale does not have cancer, but he thrives on Dr. Kelley’s Formula PEP (formerly Formula CA+) (freeze-dried porcine pancreatic enzymes in capsules). Before adding them to his diet at every meal he did not digest his food at all well. He is a Type III in the Balanced Category of Dr. Kelley’s Metabolic Chart.
The chart also gives you general guidelines for the vitamins and minerals needed (and not needed) by meat eaters, vegetarians and those in the balanced category (those of us who can thrive eating both meat and vegetables). It was amazing to me that Dr. Kelley knew that I feel better on low amounts of B vitamins (50 mg. a day instead of 100 mg.) and I need high amounts of bioflavonoids (I’ve taken 1000 mg. or more daily since 1961 when I discovered I don’t bruise when I take high amounts and I do when I lower the amount).
Coffee Enemas A Way of Life
for Dr. Kelley and Others
Dr. Kelley said he also took a coffee enema every day and had since 1963! He said thousands of his patients and many of the doctors and practitioners that he trained over the years in using his regime to help their cancer patients and to keep themselves healthy also take a daily coffee enema.
Dr. Kelley got started taking coffee enemas in 1963 when he became sick with flu-like symptoms — seven months into his original therapy of eating mostly raw fruits and vegetables, water soaked nuts, beans and brown rice (which is the correct way to eat for his metabolic type) and taking handfuls of freeze dried porcine-based pancreatic enzymes with and between meals. By the third day of feeling sick he started throwing up — every time he took the enzymes he would throw them up. When he realized it might be the enzymes that were making him throw up and feel like he had the flu he decided to stop taking them for a few days to test if that was true. In a few days he was feeling better and began taking the enzymes again. For two or three days he felt okay and then he got the flu symptoms back again. He also noticed that when he was not taking the enzymes he could feel (with his hands) the tumor in his pancreas get bigger and when he went back on the enzymes he could feel it get smaller. This really baffled him as he thought he should feel sick when the tumor was growing and feel better when it was shrinking.
Wanting desperately to continue to shrink his tumor he stayed awake day and night searching for the answer. He figured it out by comparing himself to a cancer patient who is throwing up while on chemotherapy. It was (and is) believed that people on chemotherapy throw up because 1.) Chemo is toxic, and 2.) The tumors that the chemo breaks up are toxic. The trick to successful chemotherapy is to kill the cancer before the chemo and the tumor debris kills the patient. Since he wasn’t taking chemo, Dr. Kelley figured he was throwing up because the enzymes were dissolving the tumor and the dissolving tumor material was toxic.
After he figured that out he went back to the medical journals searching for a way to detoxify himself while the enzymes dissolved his tumor.
Merck Manual Advocated Coffee
Enemas from 1890 to 1977
Most nursing texts for the better part of the 20 th century recommended coffee enemas as well. Particularly during the 1920s and 1930s coffee enemas were used in the US and abroad to treat a variety of conditions, and there are numerous articles from that time discussing the wide-ranging effects on patients. Coffee enemas were frequently recommended because patients, whatever their underlying problem, tended to feel better after a coffee enema. Dr. Kelley followed thousands of his patients over the years that have done coffee enemas in some cases for decades and virtually all patients report an increased sense of well being.
Dr. Kelley said he found research going back to the beginning of the 20 th century that indicated that coffee enemas stimulate more efficient liver function and gallbladder emptying, and it is believed that is the primary therapeutic benefit. One article stated, “Particularly with cancer patients, who often have a very large tumor burden, as the body repairs and rebuilds and as tumors break down, enormous amounts of toxic debris can be produced, much of which must be processed in the liver. The coffee enemas seem to enhance this processing of toxic metabolic waste.” Interestingly, in Hospital Practice (August 15, 1999, page 128), which is a very orthodox journal of internal medicine, there is a summary of an article showing how coffee enemas seem to enhance gallbladder and liver function.
The first time Dr. Kelley took a coffee enema he went on the enzymes for about five days until he was feeling good and sick. He had purchased ground coffee at the market and an enema bag at the pharmacy (later he found the enema buckets that are available from Road To Health). When he had muscle aches, a fever of 104° and was vomiting he decided it was time to put the coffee enemas to the test. After taking his first coffee enema, within 30 minutes his fever went from 104° to 99°, his aches and pains disappeared and he stopped throwing up. From that day on he had one or more coffee enemas daily and continued doing them for the rest of his life.
The Coffee Enema
[The liver receives two types of blood from the hepatic portal vein: 1.) arterial blood from the hepatic artery, which brings fresh, oxygenated blood from the aorta and 2.) portal (venous) blood which has previously passed through the intestine and spleen, which carries not only nutrients and, in the case of a person who has just taken a coffee enema, caffeine, but also various contaminants (drugs, toxins from food, bacteria, byproducts of blood-cell recycling). These two types of blood mix together in the hepatic sinusoids and, after the liver performs a diversity of functions, including the detoxification of drugs and poisons and the formation and secretion of bile — which often contains drugs and poisons — to the bile duct and gall bladder, which eventually dumps into the intestine) the blood then passes out of the liver.]
To take the enema I lie on my right side on the floor or on a low bench and insert the enema tube letting the whole-quart of either water or the coffee solution go in and I hold it for about 5 to 10 minutes. Both Gerson and Kelley recommend holding the coffee enema 15-20 minutes, especially if you are in a “healing crises,” which is what Gerson calls the flu-like symptoms that Dr. Kelley experienced. A healing crises is the goal of every patient at the Gerson clinic and of Dr. Kelley because, even though you feel terrible, you know the treatment is working when you go into a healing crisis. Your job is to keep taking coffee enemas until the crisis is past and at that point you know you have improved your health (by dissolving toxins with the pancreatic enzymes and getting them out of your body with the coffee enemas).
I also make a coffee concentrate that was taught at the Gerson Clinic: Bring to a boil 4 quarts of distilled water and add 3 cups of Yuban coffee. Boil for 3 minutes, turn down the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, cool, strain into quart glass bottles (makes about 3 quarts, 1 cup) and refrigerate. Use one cup of concentrate to 3 cups of distilled water for your coffee solution.
On the question of getting a caffeine high from coffee enemas, patients almost universally report a relaxing effect, not the stimulation you find with coffee taken orally. Even people who have never been able to tolerate drinking coffee due to it causing an amphetamine like response, report always feeling relaxed when doing a coffee enema.
I feel Dr. Kelley’s influence and guidance in my life every day and I hope I can live up to all that he expects of me.

Pancreatic Cancer Alternative Treatments
What is Pancreatic Cancer?
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most challenging cancers to treat. It is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells are found in the tissues of the pancreas. The human pancreas is three times larger than it is meant to be. It is like a muscle, the more work demanded of it, the bigger it will grow. Because we humans eat cooked food for breakfast, cooked food for dinner, cooked food for supper, we always eat food deficient in enzymes. So the pancreas grows bigger so it can produce more enzymes. Cooking will destroy most enzymes in all foods.
The further you move down the digestive tract the more cancers occur because the more the enzymes are used up. That is why so many people have colon cancer. The colon, at the end of the digestive tract, receives no enzymes and when the bowel is clogged with putrefying meats or stagnant white flour products, microbes breed and cancer sets in.
The pancreas produces an enzyme called trypsin. This enzyme specifically digests cancer tumours. The white blood cells cannot touch a cancer tumour because they have the same electrical charge. Trypsin goes right in and eats the tumour coat. When this coat is opened the white blood cells can enter the tumour and kill the cancer. If a person constantly eats cooked foods then most if not all their trypsin is used up in the digestive tract and there is very little left to enter the blood stream and eat the tumour.
Symptoms Of Pancreatic Cancer?
It is not easy to detect Pancreatic Cancer simply because pancreatic cancer symptoms are also associated with many other illnesses. At least half of pancreatic cancer patients experience jaundice, a yellowing of the skin.
Pancreatic cancer symptoms also experienced include loss of weight, intolerance to glucose, fatigue, abdominal pain or discomfort is common. There can also be chills, weakness and diarrhea.
What Are The Causes Of Pancreatic Cancer?
There are a number of causes of Pancreatic Cancer. Please refer to our main causes of cancer page for further information on the causes of Pancreatic and other forms of cancer.

High Fructose Corn Syrup and Pancreatic Cancer
Lena Suhaila, ND
A diet high in high fructose corn syrup is associated with increased pancreatic cancer risk
Study Parameters Assessed
In the meta-analysis by Aune et al, one modifiable factor becomes clear: the consumption of the monosaccharide fructose.6 Naturally occurring in fruits and vegetables, fructose also occurs in various manufactured forms such as high fructose corn syrup (in soft drinks, processed foods and candy) and agave nectar (marketed as a healthy alternative to high fructose corn syrup). The meta analysis observes a linear dose-response increase in pancreatic cancer risk with each increment of 25 grams/day of fructose.7
The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates the average American consumes more than 65.6 pounds of high fructose corn syrup per year.8 The third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey reported that more than 10% of America’s daily calories come from fructose—of which the largest part comes from sweetened beverages.9
Dietary fructose can promote cancer growth by a number of mechanisms, including altered cellular metabolism, increased reactive oxygen species, DNA damage, and inflammation.10 Epidemiological studies have reported positive associations between fructose intake and type 2 diabetes and obesity in humans, both of which are established risk factors for pancreatic cancer.11-13
The metabolism of fructose differs from that of other carbohydrates. Fructose is used preferentially in the synthesis of nucleic acids. The synthesis of nucleic acids and nucleotides is necessary for proliferating tissues, especially cancer cells. The contribution of fructose to nucleic acid synthesis through the pentose phosphate pathway (catalyzed by transketolase) is greater than that of glucose. Suppression of transketolase-like protein decreases cancer cell proliferation; inversely, activation of transketolase stimulates cancer cell proliferation.14 The enhanced protein synthesis caused by fructose appears to promote a more aggressive cancer phenotype.15
Data collected for 14 years from The Singapore Chinese Health Study using a 648,387 person-years cohort found that individuals who consumed 2 or more soft drinks per week were twice as likely to develop pancreatic cancer.16 Similarly, a paper published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, using a cohort of 77,797 people followed for 7 years revealed a 93% increase in the occurrence of pancreatic cancer in those who drank 2 or more soft drinks per day.17
Despite the fact that naturally occurring fructose (in fruits and vegetables) is chemically identical to high fructose corn syrup and agave (in sweets and soft drinks), there is a marked difference in the delivery systems.
Addressing the type, variety, and quantity of fructose intake with patients is a simple practice and can potentially save lives.
