The 4 main sites of metastasis are the brain, bones, liver and lungs. Metastatic tumours spread to these organs causing considerable harm to them. The naturopathic approach to…
If a cell of a tumor have faulty nonfunctional proteinase they will be unable to undergo what process?

This causes the tumor, clot, or cancer to be able to spread throughout the body, thus effecting more of the body and killing is sooner.
