I would feel the same way you do. How horrible to be in this position.
I've just started investigating alternative cancer treatments myself for my Mom, she's been dx'd with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia. It's a form of lymphoma but a more chronic condition, it's likely that she will die 20 years later with it, rather than from it. So in this case, it's quite a bit different to try alternative therapies, rather than b.c. I don't know what I'd do in your case.
My favorite book regarding enzyme therapy by Karen DeFelice www.enzymestuff.com
says there is a long history of using enzymes for cancer treatment.
|Dr. John Beard The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis (1911) considered the fundamental cornerstone of all enzyme therapy practiced today for cancer. Cancer growth was inhibited by using enzymes.
Dr. Max Wolf treated 50,000 patients with various enzyme combinations over 25 years.
Cancer cells are more susceptible to proteases than regular cells.... [they] are covered by a protein film that proteases break down. This leaves the cancer cells open to the body's natural defenses, chemotherapy or other measures.
Enzymes also stimulate the body's natural cancer fighting weapons. They help disarm the cancer cells.
Next, enzymes can break down the "sticky glue" substance that cancer cells use to stick themselves onto other cells and tissue. This retards their spread and growth (Desser 1990; Gonzalez 1999).
Should someone need surgery, radiation or chemotherapy, enzymes can reduce the side-effects that usually accompany these treatments. Enzymes help reduce inflammation and pain experienced, and speed up the healing process. (Ottokar 1980, Wrba 1990).
Enzyme therapy is effective on many types of cancers including those of the skin, digestive system, connective tissues, breast, lymphoma, leukemia, and others (Gerard 1972, Desser, Rehberger and Paukovits 1994, Lauer et al 2001; Leipner and Saller 2000; Neiper 1974, Taussig, Szekerczes and Batkin 1985).
In particular research done on the A2M alpha 2 macroglobulin shows how protease enzymes join together with this immune system molecule to enhance immune system's function. It "shuttles the beneficial protease to any part in the body that requires it for healing work, similar to an ambulance whisking medical personnel to the site of injury where they are needed."
And the A2M + protease, "mops up various compounds shown to be hazardous to health and disposes of them appropriately."Protecting Yourself from Cancer with Food:http://www.westonaprice.org/brochures/CancerTrifold.pdf
