I have been on metabolic therapy for 4 weeks now. The lump seems to have gotten bigger with some swelling. Why is that?
Dr Kelley, in One Answer to Cancer, explains that as one goes on Metabolic Therapy, the malignant tumor masses often continue to grow temporarily (bold mine) before ones normal metabolic functions can take over.
Also, once started on Metabolic Therapy, the objective of which is to supply the body with adequate pancreatic enzymes to properly digest food and stop the disease process, some swelling can be expected once liquid debris is produced from the pancreatic enzymes’ digestion of the malignant tumor masses and cells. The swelling, frequently misinterpreted and often scaring the cancer victim, is actually temporary and subsides as the liquid debris is “gobbled up” by white blood cells and removed from the body by way of bile from the liver, which goes to the colon and out, as urine from the kidneys and out through the bladder, and by way of skin perspiration as well as hair and nail growth.
Along with temporary swelling, one other misinterpreted part of Metabolic Therapy is an increase in the number of white blood cells which is actually ‘considered to be a good sign’ as it indicates that the body’s defense system is effectively responding to facilitate proper disposal of liquid debris and toxins.

In reality, a person very rarely dies of cancer: it is always (from) starvation and toxicity. As the malignant tumor grows it gives off waste products, which must be eliminated through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. These waste products accumulate and gradually overburden the body. Most persons then die of toxemia. (OAC, 2010 edition, p. 32)
Dr. Kelley contends that before any disease can be cured, the waste products and impurities must first be cleansed from the body and the sooner done, the sooner the body can begin repairing itself. He further recommends that detoxification process begin even before the nutritional supplements are available, and more importantly, that it is “absolutely imperative that the patient carefully follow the detoxification process after the supplements begin stimulating the release of wastes and debris because if the organs of detoxification are themselves filled with debris, they of course cannot accept any more toxins.” Continue reading
Daily, everyone produces malignant tumor cells and, daily, most everyone’s pancreas produces adequate pancreatin to digest the food they eat AND these malignant tumor cells. It is when one’s pancreas fails to produce the necessary pancreatin to accomplish these tasks that a disease “process” takes place which we correctly call Cancer. (OAC, p. 20)
The real problem in ANY cancer therapy is clearing up the body of toxins which accumulate as the tumor is dissolved. Continue reading
