Food enzymes are preferred to enzyme supplementation. Unless you need to boost digestive enzymes during a meal or you need a particularly high dose off systemic / proteolytic ezymes for therapeutic reasons:
General tactics to improve enzyme levels
Reduce caloric intake. Lowers the body's demand for digestive enzymes, at the same time as reducing body's digestive energy consumption, which typically uses 80% of your body's available energy; extra energy is then available for making metabolic enzymes
DON'T CHEW GUM!
• Stimulates saliva production and increases enzyme action in the mouth
• Alerts pancreas and other digestive organs to anticipate incoming food
• Chewing gum wastes enzymes and stimulates hydrochloric acid production in the stomach for food that never arrives
Confine protein intake to breakfast and lunch. This uses the pancreatic enzymes for only 6 hours, leaving 18 hours for metabolic use of protease enzymes, such as digesting fibrin coats on cancer cells
Consume foods with high proteolytic enzyme content
Sprouts / Raw Foods / ACV
Sprouts and germinated nuts, seeds, grains, legumes provide the highest enzyme source. Soaking them for germination also makes these “seeds”more digestible.
Raw foods are good sources of enzymes
Vegetable juicing part of the CANCER TREATMENT CORE. Enzymes are denatured at temperatures > 116 â°F and even a Vitamix left running too long or some centrifugal juicers can cause contents to reach such temperature
Apple Cider Vinegar in water
Other enzyme-rich foods:
• Papaya, pineapple, ginger, mango, kiwi, and grapes
• Raw honey (enzymes from bee's saliva)
• Bee pollen
• Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil
• Raw meat and dairy
Bromelain in Pineapple
"Bromelain works much the same way as these new "miracle" clot-busting drugs, by stimulating the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin, which in turn helps break down the fibrin clot."
Dr. David Williams
Pineapples have high bromelain content. It is found in the stems (highest concentration) of pineapples, fruit, and freshly-squeezed juice.
Additional anti-cancer properties (i.e. anti-inflammatory, fibrin-dissolver, cytokine booster). This protease also enhances the effects of the digestive enzymes trypsin and pepsin, is a natural anticoagulant and thins mucus (helpful in respiratory congestion or asthma), asreported by the WHO.
“The demasking effect of these enzymes against the pericellular layer of the malignant cell is something very concrete in the immunology of cancer. Now I prefer, rather than advising the use of bromelain or papaya tablets that the individual seeking these enzymes get them directly from the fresh ripe pineapple and papaya fruit. As much as half a pineapple a day should be ingested...You have nothing to lose by eating fresh pineapple and papaya melons."
Papain in Unripened Papayas
The proteolytic enzyme papain is derived from unripened papayas
Papain is similar to stomach pepsin found in our bodies. It is helpful with indigestion or slow digestion, according to the University of California.
Papain is used as a meat tenderizer. An active ingredient in most tenderizers on the market.
Zingibain in Ginger Root
Ginger root has a high content of the proteolytic enzyme zingibain
Zingibain helps break down dietary proteins and improve digestion. It does this by neutralizing stomach acids and promoting the production of digestive juices.
ZIngibain may also improve the immune system. Thus helping to control autoimmune diseases.
Protease in Grains
Protease is a type of proteolytic enzyme naturally found in grains. When wheat grains GERMINATE, protease activity increases fifteen-fold.
Wheat seeds contain other proteolytic enzymes. E.g. endopeptidases, aminopeptidases and carboxypeptidases often removed by processing.

Nattokinase in fermented soy (especially “Natto”)
The Japanese fermented food "natto" is a rich source of the enzyme nattokinase
Nattokinase dissolves clots and fibrin deposits in various parts of the body. Useful for many problems associated with fibrin and impaired circulation E.g. hyper-coagulation of the blood, circulatory problems, angina, heart attacks, strokes, senility, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and on. The Japanese people eat an average of 4.5 pounds (2.2 kg) of natto annually.

Chronic low-level inflammation (CLII) involved in almost all health problems
"The medical kit of the future"
General electrotherapy health benefits. Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:
|Detoxification||Wellness / Healthy aging||Pain relief|
|Relief from insomnia||Immune system restoral||Anti-Inflammatory|
|Maximizes cellular energy production||Accelerated tissue /bone
|Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation||Increased blood oxygen
There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:
|Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy|
|Near Infrared (NIR) class 4 laser therapy|
Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:
|Balances neurotransmitters||Relieves pain||Treats depression|
|Substance abuse withdrawal||Relieves insomnia||Relieve stress / anxiety|
