When conventional cancer protocols reach a dead end (Part 11)

Last week, I ended the interview of Suzanne Somers with Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, the scientist, who came up with enzyme therapy to treat cancer patients. As a young medical student back in Poland, he discovered that cancer patients were missing a significant amount of enzymes that protect the body against developing cancer. He decided to replace the missing enzymes, which are essential to good health and he succeeded in having cancers go into remission. He called his therapy antineoplastons (ANPs).
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.

Nearly four in 10 US HIV infections from people unaware of infection

Nearly four in 10 US HIV infections from people unaware of infection

  • The Trump administration has said it will invest $291 million in the next financial year to fight HIV/AIDS, which has plateaued since 2013 to around 39,000 annual transmissions

WASHINGTON: Almost 40 percent of new HIV cases in the US occur because people do not know they are infected, while a similar proportion know but are not in treatment, according to a study released Monday.
The report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is based on 2016 data and aims to bolster a strategy outlined by President Donald Trump to end the epidemic within 10 years.
The strategy has two main strands: far more widespread screening, and enabling the infected better access to treatment from the moment they test positive.
The study found that 38 percent of infections came from HIV-positive people who were unaware of their status, and 43 percent from people who knew they were infected but took no anti-retroviral drugs.
The remaining infections came from people who were receiving HIV treatment but were not yet “virally suppressed.”
The CDC blamed financial, social and other reasons for people not using medication, which these days typically comes in the form of a daily pill with minimal side effects.
The study said that the infection rate from the half million people in the United States who take medication and are virally suppressed — meaning they cannot pass on the disease to others — was zero.

The most at-risk group remains homosexual men, with almost three-quarters of new infections coming from men having sex with men, the report said.
Five percent of infections came from intravenous drug abuse among homosexual men, while 10 percent came from injecting drugs among the rest of the population.
Twelve percent of infections were among heterosexuals. Overall, the highest rate of transmission was among 13 to 24-year-olds.
The Trump administration has said it will invest $291 million in the next financial year to fight HIV/AIDS, which has plateaued since 2013 to around 39,000 annual transmissions.
The goal is to reduce that number by 75 percent within five years and by 90 percent in 10 years.
Questioned about the relatively small amount of money earmarked for the multi-billion dollar task of treating HIV carriers, CDC head Robert Redfield said he was “confident that the resources that are required to accomplish this mission are in the long term plan.”
The CDC, based in Atlanta, Georgia, wants doctors to make HIV screening a routine procedure.
“Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV at least once in their lifetime,” said Eugene McCray, the head of the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention.
“Those at higher risk should get tested at least annually,” he said.
“The key to controlling is helping those with HIV to control the virus,” said the CDC’s Jonathan Mermin, who focuses on preventing the spread of the HIV as well as other sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis and hepatitis.
“Time spent working closely with patients who are having trouble paying for, picking up or taking their daily medications is time well spent“
