What is “lysing?”
Lysing is a process that is commonly referred to when people use Protocel for cancer. Because Protocel interferes with how cancer cells produce energy for themselves to the point where the cancer cells can no longer hold their membranes together, the cancer cell membranes eventually burst. This causes the cancer cells to fall apart and die. The bursting of the cell membranes is called “lysing.” (See Chapter 9 of Outsmart Your Cancer for a more complete, detailed scientific explanation.) As the lysed cancer cell parts are processed out of the body, the person may see signs of lysing, such as bubbles or foam in their urine or egg-white-like material coming out in their bowel movements. Or they may experiencing lysing symptoms such as initial tiredness, night sweats, or other types of sensations that are typical to detoxing. (For more details about lysing symptoms, please read Chapter 12 in Outsmart Your Cancer.)
What if I have heavy signs of lysing, then periods of no signs of lysing at all?
Whenever a person is using Protocel for cancer, there will be lysing going on every day, possibly every minute of the day. This is because the term “lysing” refers to the bursting of the cancer cell membranes. On the other hand, seeing the signs of lysing come out of the body may be sporadic or cyclical, or a person may not notice any signs of lysing at all. That does not mean the lysing is not going on inside the body, it simply means that the person is not able to notice the lysed material (broken down cancer cells) coming out of their body. Sometimes the body may be able to process out the lysed material very efficiently so you don’t see it. Other times, the lysed cancer cells may build up in the body for a little while before the body processes them out all at once. Basically, sporadic or cyclical lysing symptoms are very common and should not be interpreted as Protocel working at times and then not working at other times.
The only exception to this rule is if you notice that something new you happen to do or eat corresponds to an obvious reduction in signs of lysing. For instance, if you have been seeing regular signs of lysing for a while and then start taking a new supplement or using chemo, and the signs stop suddenly and don’t come back, you may want to stop that supplement or drug. Or if your signs of lysing stop whenever you eat donuts or drink a milkshake or alcoholic drinks, then that may be an indication that those things are interfering with Protocel’s ability to work on the cellular level.

Is bleeding a lysing symptom?
No, not usually. Sometimes a small amount of blood may be seen as a result of lysing when parts of a tumor break away from a blood vessel or organ wall. But this is usually a very small amount of blood and of short duration. If anyone experiences heavy or prolonged bleeding while taking Protocel for cancer, this should NOT be construed as a lysing symptom and the person should have themselves checked by a qualified physician immediately.
Can Protocel cause nausea or vomiting?
Yes, but this is a very rare occurrence in humans. Nausea generally only occurs under certain conditions, such as when cancer in the stomach is lysing or a person has a highly toxic liver that is having trouble keeping up with the person’s recovery efforts. Drinking extra water may help, or possibly doing a series of coffee enemas to help cleanse the liver. As far as vomiting goes, if a person vomits up egg-white like material or what looks like white foam, this can be a very good sign of heavy lysing going on and the body is ridding itself of dead cancer cell debris by vomiting it out. This is especially apparent when dogs or cats with cancer are given Protocel, because vomiting is such a common release mechanism for them.
What can I do to reduce any uncomfortable lysing symptoms?
Please see Chapter 12 for all the details, but definitely drinking more water every day and making sure you have at least one bowel movement each day will help keep lysed material moving out of the body more efficiently.
Are there any special issues for brain cancer patients?
Yes. The brain is one of the areas of the body that sometimes does not process out lysed material very quickly. If you have a small amount of cancer in the brain, then this usually is not an issue. But if you have a large tumor or multiple large tumors in the brain, then be careful with your Protocel dosing as to not make the lysing of the cancer go too fast. One of the ways the brain works is that it fills any “holes” with fluid. Thus, as tumors break down, they may leave an open area that the brain will fill with fluid. Sometimes it fills this hole with too much fluid and “edema” causing pressure in the brain results. Because of this, some patients with cancer in the brain may have to be given a prescription steroid by their doctor to reduce this sort of swelling and pressure in the brain until Protocel as had enough time to get rid of more of the cancer. Eventually, the steroid drug can be gradually reduced.

Are there any special issues for breast cancer patients?
Yes. The breast is another area that does not process out lysed material very efficiently, possibly due to the fact that it is made up of so much fatty tissue and relies greatly on tiny lymph vessels for removing broken down cancer cell debris. Once again, if a woman has a small amount of cancer in her breast, the processing out of lysed material should go well. But if she has a lot of cancer in her breast, then she may need to be more vigilant about drinking lots of water and making sure that her lymph system is hydrated and flowing well. Bouncing on a mini-trampoline for about ten minutes twice a day can greatly increase the efficiency of the body’s ability to remove lysed material from the breast. Without keeping that lymph flowing well, a woman’s breast may swell and become painful as the cancer lyses if she has a lot of cancer in her breast.
Are there any special issues for Lymphoma patients?
Yes. The most important thing for anyone using Protocel for cancer in their lymph system, and especially for those who are primary lymphoma patients, is to stay well hydrated by drinking lots of water every single day. This is because the lymph fluid can get “sticky” or thick as it is processing out lysed cancer cells caused by the Protocel. The lymph system does not have a main pump to keep it flowing like the blood system has with the heart. So, if the lymph fluid gets too thick and sticky, it may get clogged up and stop moving. This could cause discomfort in the cancer patient and may impede the body’s ability to process out the buildup of broken down cancer cells. In at least one case I followed, this buildup became almost life-threatening for a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma patient on Protocel. For 3 months, his cancer was responding very well to the Protocel and the many lumps he had around his body had all reduced in size. But he wasn’t drinking much water every day and pretty soon he started to experience great pain in his abdomen. Doctors determined that his spleen had swollen up and was about to rupture. Now, the spleen is like a very big lymph node in the lymph system and often becomes heavy with cancer when a person has lymphoma. So, lots of lysing going on and not enough water to keep that lymph fluid moving is probably what caused this man’s terrible pain. Don’t take that risk. Drink plenty of good pure water besides other drinks you may be ingesting. Another very effective way to aid the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body is to gently bounce on a mini-trampoline for about 10 minutes twice a day.
