When conventional cancer protocols reach a dead end (Part 11)
When conventional cancer protocols reach a dead end (Part 11)
When he came over to the United States, he continued his research on enzymes and started treating Stage IV and terminal cancers with his alternative method, which is a different approach from orthodox cancer protocols like chemotherapy and radiation. His therapy was even successful on the most resistant cancers to chemo such as brain, liver, pancreas, breast, and lung. However, it was not long before FDA tried to stop him from using the ANP treatment and took him to court. Luckily, some of his cured patients like Mary Jo (last week’s story) and their families traveled long distances to attend the trial and testified for him, thus vindicating him from the accusations.
Once acquitted, he resumed his research and treatment with the enzymes and had the ANPs patented. The harassment did not end there. Not before long, the Texas Medical Board, tried to contest his license and find fault with his credentials. The story is so complicated that I decided to cut it short here and continue relating some of the incredible stories as told by his cured cancer patients. Last week I told you the story of Mary Jo and today I have others.
Jenny Gettino tells about her struggle with cancer. Her daughter, Sophia, who was of ten and a half months of age, was diagnosed with “a deadly brain tumor called pineoblastoma.” Doctors proposed to treat her with chemo and radiation. The parents could not bring themselves to subject the little baby to such ravaging therapy. After researching Dr. Burzynski’s therapy, her husband tried to talk to her into going to Houston to see him, but she heard “he was a quack and a charlatan.” Her husband insisted and prevailed. After examining Baby Sophia, Burzynski told them that this type of tumor is tough to treat “pretty much has a zero survival rate.” Plus, Sophia had a “regulated infection” in the brain, resulting from earlier surgery, but they still chose to go ahead with the therapy.
The first thing he did was to address the infection. With this done, she says “He put an IV port in my little baby and she was on the treatment for several years.” It was a very delicate case to treat and took long to treat, but it was a success. Sophia is cancer free for thirteen years (the book was written in 2009) and lives a normal happy childhood. Jenny says, “We get calls from all over the world about Dr. Burzynski.” He is not only “a great healer,” but also “a wonderful man,” she added.
Here are Sophia’s own words and wisdom from an excerpt of her speech at the Optimist Speech Contest, “If you keep a positive attitude you will be much better off. You will get through life much easier. Always stay optimistic. For me optimism is to expect the best possible outcome. That is how optimism helped defeat my disease.” This is her philosophy in life and it worked for her.
Here is another story of cancer from MaryAnn Kunnari whose baby son Dustin was diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of brain cancer, medulloblastoma. The doctors decided to do chemo and if it doesn’t work, radiation would be used, but it would cause mental retardation, because of his young age. It was an experimental type of chemo, Mary Ann says, “That a computer would randomly pick, and among the risks were hearing loss, stunted growth, learning disabilities, bladder and kidney damage, sterility, and leukemia. There was a 20 to 40 percent chance the treatment would work.” In desperation to find an alternative treatment, the parents found Dr. Burzynski’s name through the Cancer Control Society in California. The doctor was recommended, because he had successes in the treatment of children with brain tumors.
Dr. Burzynski met them and with optimism he said that Dustin would respond. In 1994, Dustin was too young to be part of the study, but due to the pleas of the parents, he agreed. The IV pump was attached to him with a backpack to take antineoplastons intravenously. They also took all the necessary instructions. Burzynski warned the parents that he would discontinue the treatment, should there be “no positive result on his first MRI.” Six weeks later “MRI showed no evidence of a tumor.” They kept going to Houston for checkups, but to their dismay, the aggressive tumor reappeared. Fortunately, when the medication doses were increased, the tumor disappeared.
Fifteen years later, Dustin is a young man who is leading a normal life. He got a certified nursing assistant license and works as he goes to college to get the degree. He wants to help others, because he was grateful for healing, thanks to Dr. Burzynsk’s science, care, and effort. Dustin outlived his prognosis by many years. Plus, the treatment is safe and non-toxic. The parents highly recommend the brave doctor. Here is one more story.
Lolli D’Orisio was forty-three years old when she discovered a lump in her breast, which was treated with thirty-one sittings of radiation. Two years later, she found another malignant lump around the same breast. Instead of therapy, she decided on a mastectomy and had immediate reconstructive surgery and implants in 1995. To her dismay, her breast opened up and started leaking that needed draining. Even after stitching it up, it burst again. Not long after that, a mammogram showed carcinoma in situ (DCIS) on the other breast. She had another mastectomy, reconstruction surgery, and implant.
Six months later, she had an MRI, which showed a small breast cancer, the same type she had earlier. Radiation was ordered for her once more. In 2004, her tumor markers came out 34 slightly higher than the normal high (0 to 32). A couple of months later, it was 37. The oncologists started discussing chemotherapy. She refused and started her research. She decided to go to Houston to see Dr. Burzynski after reading Dr. Julian Whitaker’s newsletter.
She was asked to have a CAT scan and a brain MRI, which showed the brain to be normal, but the CAT scan showed “a little tumor in the bone in my left shoulder area.” Dr. Burzynski gave her a treatment of sodium phenylbutyrate and antineoplastons in form of thirty-six pills a day. He did another tumor marker test and gave her Xeloda, a mild oral chemotherapy, which leaves “very few side effects,” to address the malignancy without affecting the quality of her life.
In consequence of the treatment, the tumor marker dropped to a normal range, but she continued the therapy for some time, besides Burzynski’s medication is not toxic and her tumor markers were within normal level. Lolli finds the scientist and his treatment wonderful as well as Dr. Orlam, who works with him. It is amazing to have professional and yet compassionate doctors to work with cancer patients. A doctor should always understand how the patients feel and to reach out to them in order to achieve a holistic and effective treatment. Doctors should not be mechanical, arrogant, or rigid when dealing with helpless frail patients.
Next week, I shall tackle another “brave” doctor who has given his science and life to treat cancer patients with alternative therapy.
