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.

Why, what are enzymes, anyway?
What do enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin have to do to with cancer?
Enzymes are large protein molecules, present in all living things from bacteria to whales to marigolds. They are nature’s chemists. All activity of living things depends on them— the greening of leaves in the spring, the bolt from an electric eel, the wagging of a dog’s tail, the illumination of a firefly.
cme, in his September 9, 2011 comment on Control Cancer Naturally:
According to the Internet, it (Polycystic Kidney Disease) has no cure. You just have to take care of your kidneys but eventually you will undergo dialysis and end stage would be renal failure. Is there a way to prolong the life of a person with PKD?
The word “polycystic” rang a bell for me. Continue reading
I have gotten feedback that lapay (pork pancreas), Dr. Efren Navarro’s suggested enzyme alternative for an indigent patient, is not that easy to source in the wet market nowadays. I would like to think that it is enzyme-use for cancer therapy which is causing the shortage of this very rich and natural source of trypsin and chymotrypsin, the vital enzymes for cancer control management. But it’s more likely the fact that lapay is a main ingredient of all-time native favorites bopis, bachoy, and dinuguan – viands, which used to be popular street foods only, but are now regular fare even in dine-in restaurants.
