Always get a second opinion. And, read everything from reputable (.edu or .gov) sources you can to be informed yourself. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. We went to MD Anderson in Houston where they put him on chemotherapy (etoposide and cisplatin) which we were told 60-70% of patients respond to. We were also told that he would never be cured but that if the chemotherapy worked his fast growing and agressive tumors (5 ranging in size from 9-13 cm which consumes almost 80% of his liver) would be "converted" to a slower growing more managable type. We just completed round 2 of the chemotherapy and will have one more round before being re-evaluated at MD Anderson. The chemotherapy makes him sick for a few days, but will be worth it if it performs well. My bottom line advice: get a second opinion, get informed, enlist the aid of family and friends in your search for information, and stay positive. I hope you have good insurance because that has been a real blessing for us.

My 53 years old husband was told he had terminal cancer with over 12 liver cancers and was also told that it was inoperable. I have university qualifications in food science and I have used this knowledge to tackle these cancers. My husband had the 8 rounds of chemo, in addition to this I did a major change in his diet. No salt, sugar, fast food, alcohol, refined foods and to start drinking 8 glasses of pure water everyday. He also has been drinking my home made juices everyday for the past 6 months. All the scans now, including the PET scan shows that all the cancer cells have now become metabolically inactive and now a liver resection operation is booked for January. I make all the juices myself with my juice machine because the juice has to be freshly made so that the enzymes are active to attack these cancer cells. It is best to have the juice 15 minutes before food so that the enzymes can reach cellular level rapidly. Listed below is the composition of my " Judy's Juice"   Morning Juice. 6 pieces celery, 2 apples including core, 4 carrots and 1 whole beetroot. The afternoon juice. 1 half a pineapple, 1 quarter paw paw ( papaya ), 2 oranges, 2 apples, 1 pomegranate, 1 half punnet strawberries. The natural sugars in these fruits when absorbed by the cancers also contain anti cancer enzymes that can deactivate the cancers. Your increased nutritional daily intake will lessen the effects of chemo and also attack the cancer. I hope you and everyone else suffering from cancer can make a complete recovery. Kind regards, Judy Melbourne Australia.

Please explain to me how these enzymes are not denatured by the HCl in the stomach (pH=1) and how they attack the cancer cells. What enzymes are contained in the fructose molecules and in what part of the fructose molecule is the enzyme located? What is the mechanism by which the cancers are deactivated? As I am sure you know, enzymes are proteins that act as biological catalysts. They are typically composed of hundreds of amino acids. The small intestine can only absorb proteins that are at most composed of 4 or 5 amino acids. Proteins are not absorbed in the mouth, the stomach or the large intestine. So, my next question is, how do the enzymes get into the bloodstream to be transported to the tumors? I am very happy that the chemotherapy worked for your husband and i hope you can help me understand how these juices work.

Hi fellow Aussie, thanks for your message. I'm very sorry that your mum has been so unwell with Pancreatic Cancer. The Whipple was a major procedure and I wish her all the best. I spoke to my husband's specialist to ensure that the fruit juices would be suitable for him to continue after major surgery and he was very positive towards maintaining the natural, non excessive nutritional juices and diet. I think it is always good to check with doctors to make sure that nothing conflicts with medical treatment. Judy,

I understand your concern that enzymes will be denatured by HCI. For example in over the counter sold supplements of Bromelain ( from pineapple) and Papain ( from Papaya) the ingredients can be encapsulted with an enteric coating so that the enzymes will not be activated and used as a digestive enzyme before they pass into the small intestines to be absorbed into the bloodstream to provide systemic benefits. However, I feel that our bodies are designed to eat raw food in its natural form. If the stomach is empty of food when fruit juice is drunk, the stomach will empty rapidly and the small intestines will absorb maximum available nutrients. Best wishes. Judy.

And how are these enzymes absorbed in the small intestines? Enzymes are too large to be absorbed in the intestines. I am not sure you understand the function of enzymes, how and where they are made, their specificity, or how they come to be where the reactions occur that they catalyze. I understand that you want to help your husband but to tell desperate people that ingested digestive enzymes can somehow make it through the stomach without being denatured (obviously enzymes in fruit juice are not encapsulated in anything enteric) and then travel through the circulatory system without digesting blood vessels or blood cells, and then somehow discern between cancer cells and non-cancerous cells to deactivate cancer cells is deceptive and indefensible.

I'm sorry you feel this way, I won't bother posting on this site anymore. Judy.
