Autolyzing Tumors

The word autoloysis comes from Greek meaning self-loosing. Used in physiology to designate the process of digestion or disintegration of
tissue by ferments (enzymes) generated in the cells themselves, a self-digestion process. Enzymes exist throughout nature. Organic processes
are accomplished by their aid. Seeds sprout by the aid of enzymes. Every tissue has its own enzyme. The processes of digestion that takes
place in the mouth, stomach and intestine occurs because of active agents or ferments known as enzymes. Starch gets converted into sugar
by digestive enzymes that called starch splitting, or amylolytic; proteins get converted into amino acids by protein splitting, or proteolytic,
enzymes. The digestive enzymes digest dead substances and do not digest the stomach and intestine.
Acids and alkalies do not accomplish the work of digestion. They only supply favorable mediums for the work of the digestive enzymes. The
enzyme, ptyalin, of the saliva acts only in an alkaline medium and is destroyed by a mild acid; the enzyme, pepsin, of the gastric juice works
only in an acid medium and is prevented from working by an alkali.
The chemical changes that take place in cells and tissues get instigated by enzymes, in each living thing. Simple sugar (monosaccharide)
absorbs from the intestine and moves to the liver and converted, by an enzyme, into glycogen (animal starch) and stored until use. When
bodies require sugar, glycogen reconverts into sugar, by enzymic action. Insulin secreted by the pancreas exists as necessary to the
metabolization (oxidation) of sugar and when the pancreas fails to turn out sufficient quantities of insulin, we pee unoxidized sugar.
Autolytic enzymes include terms such as oxidases and peroxidases. Physiologists know that proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzymes form
within living tissues.
These intracellular enzymes metabolize food substances; in normal functional nutrition metabolism.
When bones break, a bone-ring support gets built around the fractured section, extending each way from the point of fracture. After the bone
gets reunited and knitting or healing gets completed, and the circulatory channels get reestablished, the bone-ring support gets softened and
absorbed, except about a quarter of an inch about the point of fracture.
If planaria, flat worms, get cut into small pieces and placed where they can absorb nourishment, each piece will grow into a small worm. If
they cannot get nourishment, they cannot grow. Each piece, therefore, completely rearranges its materials and becomes a perfect, but very
minute worm. The piece that contains the pharynx, finding this too large for its diminished size, will dissolve it and make a new one that fits
its new size.
An abscess points on the surface of the body and drains its septic contents on the outside get well known. This pointing on the surface
gets made possible because the flesh between the abscess and the surface gets digested by enzymes; it gets autolyzed and removed.
Certain animals have specialized stores in which they store up a reserve of nutrition to feed them during periods of scarcity or during
hibernation. These physiological store houses get described as analogous to water tanks possessed by camels. This exists similar to bigtailed sheep of Persia, Gila monsters of the Western plains and Russian bears. Other animals, including man, possess but the generalized
reserves found in the bone marrow, liver, blood, fatty tissue, etc., and the private reserve possessed by each cell in the body.
Both types of animals may draw upon these reserves for supplies with which to nourish their vital tissues, if raw materials from without do
not exist; or, if, due to sickness, they cannot get digested.
These tissues (fatty tissue, bone marrow, etc.) and food substances (glycogen) do not exist as fit to enter the bloodstream before getting acted
upon by enzymes. Indeed human fat, or human muscle does not exist prepared to enter the circulation without first getting digested, than the
fat or muscle in a cow or sheep.
Glycogen (animal starch), stored in the liver, firstly gets converted into a simple sugar before getting released into the bloodstream. This
conversion gets accomplished by enzymic action.
Many more examples of autolysis could get listed, but enough have gotten presented to convince the reader of it as a common fact of life.
Bodies possess control over this process, just as they does over each other process of life, this process does not occur as a blind, undirected
A remarkable example of this control gets afforded by the piece of diced plenarium that contains the pharynx. It has the ability to tear down a
part and shift its constituent materials. The same thing gets seen in the softening and absorption of the bonering support around a point of
fracture. Only part of the bone-ring gets digested, the remainder remains reinforcing the weakened structure.
The phenomenon of fasting supplies many examples of how the body exercises its autolytic processes. Tissues get lost in the inverse order
of their usefulness - fat and morbid growths first, and then other issues. In each animal, from worms to man, different organs and tissues
differ greatly in their rates of loss during fasting. Often the liver loses more in weight relative to the body compared to other organs, early on,
due to glycogen and fat loss. The lungs lose nearly nothing and the brain and nervous system evan less.
The vital tissues are fed on the stored reserves and the less vital tissues, so that absti nence from food can produce damage only after the
bodys reserves have been exhausted.
The body possesses have the ability to shift chemicals and fasting shows many instances of this. The digestion and reorganization of parts
seen in worms and other animals, when deprived of food, the digestion and redistribution of reserves and surpluses and non-vital tissues, as
seen in each animal, when forced to go without food, make up some of the most marvelous phenomena in biology.
The body has the ability to build tissue and also to destroy tissue. Not only can it distribute nutrients; but it can redistribute them too.
Autoloysis makes this redistribution possible.
This process of autolysis gets used and serves us in eliminating tumors and other growths. A long known as over a hundred years ago,
Sylvester Graham wrote of when more food gets used by the body than supplied, general law of the vital economy that the decomposing

absorbents (autolysis) first lay hold of and remove those substances which are of least use to the economy; and hence, all morbid
accumulations, such as cysts, tumors, abscesses, etc., are rapidly diminished and often wholly removed under severe and protracted
abstinence and fasting. Understand that tumors gets made up of flesh and blood and bone. Many names exist for different tumors indicating
the kind of tissues the tumors get made up of. A osteoma gets made up of bone tissue; a myoma of muscular tissue; a neuroma of nerve
tissue; a lipoma of fatty tissue; etc.
Tumors get composed of tissues, the same as the other body structures, exist susceptible of autolytic disintegration, just as normal tissues and
undergo dissolution and absorption under circumstances during a fast. Fasting reduces the amount of fat on the body and it reduces the size
of the muscles, and also it reduces the size of a tumor, or causes it to disappear.
Realize that the process of disintegrating (autolyzing) the tumor takes place much more rapidly than normal tissues.
In his Notes on Tumors, a work for students of pathology, Francis Carter Wood says: In a very small proportion of human malignant tumors
spontaneous disappearance for longer or shorter periods has been noted. The greatest number of such disappearances has followed
incomplete surgical removal of the tumor; they have occurred as frequently during fever symptoms, and less frequently in connection with
some profound alteration of the metabolic processes of the organism, such as extreme cachexia, artificial menopause or the puerperium.
A more profound change in metabolism does not come about other than that produced fasting a change suited to onset autolysis of tumors,
malignancies or other.
The conditions Dr. Wood mentions as causing spontaneous disappearance of tumors mostly happened accidentally and not within the
range of a voluntary control. Fasting, though, can get instituted and carried on under supervision when desired. As a rule operations get
followed by increased tumor growth. Spontaneous disappearance of tumors following the incomplete removal rarely happens. Similar gets
said about severe cachexia and artificial menopause. In fevers, rapid autolysis goes on in many tissues of the body and curative work
happens, but we do not develop fevers at
will. Pregnancy and childbirth cause profound changes in the body, but they do not get recommended to sick women as cures for tumors.
Even if it were desirable, it seems a hit-or-miss remedy. Fastings effects occur with certainty.
Nothing exists as hit-or-miss about it, working each time in a similar way.
Fever as a curative process does help to remove the cause of the tumor. None of Dr. Woods other causes of spontaneous disappearance assist
in the removing of the causes. Fasting does assist in removal of these causes.
During the fast, the accumulations of superfluous tissues get overhauled and analyzed; the available component parts then get turned over to
the bodies nutrition department for utilization in nourishing tissues; the refuse of which gets thoroughly and permanently removed.
Numerous men could get quoted on wide experiences with fasting to corroborate what gets said here about autolyzing tumors. But take this
one quotation. Macfadden says : My experience of fasting has shown me beyond all possible doubt that a foreign growth of any kind can
be absorbed into the circulation by simply compelling the body to use every unnecessary element contained within it for food. When a
foreign growth has become hardened, sometimes one long fast will not accomplish the result, but where they are soft, the fast will usually
cause them to be absorbed.
Due to a various circumstances, some known, others unknown, the rate of absorption of tumors in those fasting varies. Further two cases
cases get here shown as to the wide range of variation in the process.
A woman, under forty, had a uterine fibroid about the size of an average grapefruit.
It was completely absorbed in twenty-eight days of total abstinence from all food but water.
Another case is that of a similar tumor in a woman of near the same age. In her case, having a growth the size of a goose egg with one
twenty-one days fast the tumor reduced to the size of an English walnut. With the fast getting broken due to hunger. Another fast, of
seventeen days, completely absorbed the tumor.
Tumor-like lumps in female breasts ranging from the size of a pea to that of a goose egg can disappear in three days to weeks. A case listed
proves interesting and instructive.
A young lady, age 21, had a large hard lump smaller than a billiard ballin her right breast. For four months it had caused her pain. She then
consulted a physician who diagnosed the condition of cancer urging immediate removal.
She went to another, another and still another medical doctor, and each made that diagnosis each urging immediate removal.
Instead of resorting to surgery, the lady fasted and in three days without food, the cancer and all pain left, with no recurrence in thirteen
years. Hundreds of similar happenings under fasting convince us that many tumors and cancers removed by surgery do not exist tumors
or cancers. Feel skeptical of the statistics issued to show early operation prevents or cures cancer.
Removing tumors via autolysis has advantages over surgical removal. Surgery has dangers; autolysis as a physiological process carries no
danger. Surgery lowers vitality and thus adds to metabolic perversion that is back of the tumor. Fasting, by which autolysis of tumors gets
accelerated, normalizes nutrition and permits the elimination of accumulated toxins, thus removing the causes of the tumor. After surgical
removal, tumors often to recur. After their autolytic removal, little tendency towards recurrence happens. Tumors often recur in malignant
form after their operative removal. The tendency to malignancy is removed by fasting, in Europe and America thousands of tumors have
gotten autolyzed in the past fifty years, and the effectiveness of the method exists beyond doubt. Bone tumors and nerve tumors; since these
get subject to the same laws of nutrition as other tumors, it seems wise to think they can get autolyzed similarly to other tumors. Certainly
the process has limitations and tumors that have grown to enormous sizes will get reduced in size; because, not earch cysts can get absorbed.
It seems advisable to undergo a needed fast or fasts while tumors or cysts remain smaller.
Another limitation gets noted; tumors situated in ways that dam up the lymph stream will continue to grow, feeding upon the accumulated
excess of lymph behind them, despite fasting.
