Case Dismissed! Alternative Cancer Treatment Wins Big

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist November 24, 2012

The obstacles can sometimes seem insurmountable in our grassroots efforts to secure such basic freedoms as the right to consciously choose the foods that nourish our bodies and the holistic treatments to assist us if we get ill.

At almost every turn, a growing and increasingly belligerent government bureaucracy backed by Corporate taskmasters attempts to thwart our efforts by terrorizing small farmers whose only “crime” is the simple production of nutrient rich foods for their communities or putting on trial alternative cancer doctors actually curing patients without resorting to the life altering and physically agonizing cut, poison, burn approach of chemotherapy and radiation.

Even parents are now targets as those that seek to avoid the horrors of conventional chemotherapy for their ailing children find that they are forced into this outdated and barbaric medical paradigm by government authorities and refused “permission” to seek alternative treatments.

While the odds against us sometimes appear hopeless as we struggle to secure our health and wellness choices, now at least is a time to celebrate.

In recent days, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s four year battle with the Texas Medical Board finally ended with outright dismissal of the case!

For those of you not familiar with the saga of Dr. Stan Burzynski, who was the subject of the 2010 Award Winning Documentary Cancer is Serious Business, here it is in a nutshell;

  • For over 10 years, Dr. Burzynski MD has successfully treated terminal cancer patients with the multi-agent gene targeted therapy he discovered in the 1970′s called Antineoplastons.
  • Antineoplastons completed Phase II of the required FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009. Further, the FDA has given permission to begin the final phase of testing which involves randomized controlled clinical trials.
  • This highly successful alternative treatment devised by Dr. Burzynski involves designing a personalized cancer treatment for each and every terminal cancer patient under his care based on that patient’s individual and unique genetic markers.
  • The individualized treatments include off label use of already existing, FDA approved medications with no surgery, no chemotherapy and no radiation required.

Why has Dr. Burzynski been so relentlessly persecuted first by the United States Government and then the Texas Medical Board for so many years?

Follow the money my friends!

The multi-agent gene targeted therapy called Antineoplastons is a nothing short of a huge medical breakthrough that promises to completely shatter the cut, poison, burn Standard Of Care – surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment.  When clinical trials are completed and Antineoplastons approved, it will be the first time in history that a single individual and not a pharmaceutical company holds the exclusive patent to manufacture and distribute these gene targeted medicines on the open market.

In essence then, Dr. Burzynski’s work represents a two-fold threat to Big Pharma:

  1. The thankful demise of cut, poison, burn and the huge, monopolistic profits behind chemotherapy and radiation treatment for cancer.
  2. The rise of gene targeted cancer treatment with no pharmaceutical industry player profiting from these medicines.

That’s right – Big Pharma completely left out in the cold with regard to the sale and distribution of these new, ground breaking cancer medicines!

Parents have particular reason to rejoice that the case against Dr. Burzynski has been dismissed. One form of childhood cancer – diffuse, intrinsic, childhood brainstem glioma for which conventional medicine has no cure has been cured by Antineoplastons (with dozens of others). [ANP - PubMed 2003] [ANP - PubMed 2006] [ANP - Cancer Therapy 2007] [Rad & other - PubMed 2008] [Chemo/Rad - PubMed 2005] 

Congratulations Dr. Burzynski on this huge win against the foes that are attempting to silence you and stop your amazing work.   The road ahead is still long until treatment with Antineoplastons is widely available to all Americans, but this recent victory brings a big one home for the little guy!

  1. if it helps patients then it is their choice where they go for treatment. the big companies always want control of money making ideas. Chemo, and radiation kills some cancer patients. Why shouldn’t there be an alternative?

  2. Cancer treatment is essential to ensure proper cell improvement in eye area and eliminate abnormal cells in time. Abnormal cells that result in cancerous growth divide and develop at a very high price as well as compel adjacent healthy cells to behave unnaturally and function inefficiently. Abnormal cell development also impacts functioning of tissues and causes shortage of generation and provide of necessary sources to normal cells in the region. Thus, presence of cancer cells affects general well being of eyes.

  5. I, too, have first-hand experience with Dr. Burzynski’s treatments. In 1996 my mom was diagnosed with two dominant cancers, ovarian and colon. She was given less than a year to live, I was her primary caretaker. My grandparents took my mom to Burzynski’s clinic in Houston after she decided to forego traditional medical treatments. Burzynski’s initially did no accept my mom as a patient but after my grandfather donated $1M dollars to Burzynski’s research program (Google Budwine & Burzynski and you’ll read about the donation and Burzynski introducing my grandfather to the president of Poland as a thank you) mom was quickly accepted into his program. She was hooked up to a 24/7 I.V. drip of the antineosplatons on her first visit as a patient. Lynn is right. The concoction is noxious. It wreaks of animal urine and the syrupy substance will eat through anything. Skin, fabric, wood. Mom lost her hair, her appetite, her memory, her personality, and she shed her skin and nails. Her skin blistered and the itching was enough to leave her begging for mercy in a cool bathtub every night. To honor her parents she persevered. After three months of treatment Burzynski declared her cancer free and mom died approximately one month later. Mom said taking the treatment was the worst decision she’s ever made. Buzynski lost all credibility with me for accepting her when he likely knew there was nothing he could do for her, treating her with such a toxic brew knowing how sick it would make her in vain, and for ever telling my mom she was cancer free. She was riddled with metastatic tumors when she died. In my humble opinion, it is a shame you have written this article without any first hand experience or reviews from patients or patient’s families. I respectfully request your update your article if possible with tales from both sides of the Buzynski story.

    • Carmen,

      Thanks so much for sharing your story. I somehow came across Dr. Burzynski’s documentary on Youtube about a year or so ago, and thought he should have been highly revered. Knowing that the person producing the documentary was obviously biased and skewed the video to be favorable towards the doctor, I still believed Dr. Burzynski had discovered something great. I understand not every person diagnosed with cancer is a candidate for his treatment, but it sure is expensive and hearing your story is sad, especially when he declared her to be cancer free.

      There are ALWAYS 2 sides to a story. Thanks again.

  6. My mother was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer in 2007. A year later, at the urging of my mother, my husband and I got our first colonoscopies. My husband was also diagnosed with stage three colon cancer. They both had surgery and rounds of chemotherapy which almost killed my mother and yet my husband, being stronger handled the chemo quite well even going to work afterwards. It then metasticised to their liver in 2009. Each had surgery at the Mayo Clinic. Chemotherapy was recommended again. I tried to persuade each to go to the Burzynski Clinic instead since it was obvious that the chemo did not prevent the cancer from metasticising. The second round of chemo was very tough on my husband. He passed away in July of 2010, which was two years after being diagnosed. My mother’s colon cancer then spread to her lung. She had surgery in summer of 2010 and was advised to do another round of chemo after. I begged her to not go through that again and to try the Burzynski Clinic. She went down to Houston in August of 2011. She has been on a regimen of PB and other small doses of gene targeted drugs. She has been able to stay healthy and enjoy her active lifestyle with my father, and grandchildren and will be celebrating another birthday this month! So as you can see, our experience has been quite different than Lynne’s (a previous poster) and I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone frustrated with standard cancer treatment.

  10. Can you tell me how to research whether or not the clinic will accept insurance and which ones, etc.? If you want to correspond with me via email address, please do. I have two more questions related to my first one but will put it in an email if I can. Thank you so much for your research in this matter.

  11. So hold on, he got nailed for using drugs for treatment that were not FDA approved methods? EXCUSE me, but how many doctors prescribe drugs for things that the drug has not been approved for? Example, Cytotec. A drug meant to prevent peptic ulcers, but is used to induce labor and causes death and uterine rupture in pregnant women. I don’t see a bunch of OB’s being pulled in and threatened.

    In any case good for this doctor

  12. I read an email from someone about a week ago stating that the medical billing codes used to handle medicare patients does not allow the use of alternative therapies. I would like to take my elderly Mom and myself to a holistic doctor in North, Ga, but we can’t afford to pay for all the tests if medicare won’t accept their treatment as legitimate. She has thyroid and diabetes problems and I have adrenal and diabetes problems. We should be able to go to the doctor we want to and take natural medicines instead of synthetic meds.

    there is a time and place for drugs and surgery….I think….but I also like very much, for ALL chronic disease..The Gerson Program…..I did it for 45 days and have altered my rheumatoid arthritis and chronic pain and fatigue 80% and take no drugs now…..I’m not sure how good it is if you are really far down the path..as I said I think there is a time and place for drugs and surgery…but I also have complete faith in this alternative healing for many…if you are well enough and have the time….also look into The Wellness Warrior….she had a serious cancer and cured using Gerson….

    Your first post talked about the radical changes in your mothers diet that affected even those around her, and then later to Angel, you said they didn’t offer much dietary advice. I’m confused.

  15. My husband has an Aunt that was dx w/lymphoma, approximately 15 years ago. She elected to try “Cantron” it is a powerful antioxidant as well as change her diet (basically no sugar and no grains). She is alive today, cancer free and doing great!

    Reply
    • Kathy,

      I just read your post and googled Cantron since I never heard of it. It did say that Cantron is a powerful antioxidant and that one can take Cantron even if you do not have cancer. Do you know how long your husband’s aunt took Cantron for, the length of time before she was cancer free, and if she continued it after being cancer-free?

      I am always interested in alternative medicine because you never know when someone close to you may be diagnosed with cancer and chances are, their doctor is going to prescribe chemo/radiation (which really upsets me). We recently lost my boyfriend’s grandmother to cancer a couple of weeks ago and I wish she had opted for alternative treatment.

      • I am not sure of the answers to your questions, but I will most likely see his aunt in the next month and be able to answer those questions. Keep checking back in the comments section for your answers. Also, I do know that she had all the mercury fillings taken out of her mouth, and the side of her neck the lymphoma started on was the same side of her mouth as her mercury fillings. Hmmm…..

  18. Each individual should be allowed to choose their own course of medical treatment. Everyone that goes to this clinic makes a free-will choice to go there. If one finds it isn’t for them, one can make the choice to stop going. Alternative medical therapies for cancer, sinus issues, diabetes, heart disease, whatever…..should be available to anyone that wants to use them. It is an individual choice and some of us have no choice. I have been using alternative therapies for over 25 years because of allergies to pharmaceutical drugs and have found them to be very effective.

    It’s frustrating and sad that big pharma and the “medical machine” are so afraid of not reaping big money benefits from something (that is obviously helping people), that they are trying to stop the progress of the research. I’m not saying his system is perfect, but neither is the cut, poison, burn system…not by a long shot! Why not let him continue? Why not let him try to find a better way? Isn’t targeting what is causing the disease and attacking it from that aspect, better than letting the government determine what drug can be given to you for your specific cancer, especially if it’s not working? If someone had stopped Henry Ford and others like him, you’d still be walking or riding a donkey. Do we only have one choice of hair stylist…. that only does flat-tops? Do we only have restaurants that serve only meatloaf and mashed potatoes? Do we all wear kimonos because that’s the only choice we have? No, we do not. We have choices. We have rights. Let each individual use their rights to make the choices they feel are best for them.
    If you don’t like alternative therapies, don’t use them, but don’t take that right away from those of us that choose to, or have no alternative but to use them.

    • Not totally safe! Seriously….please read more about this. While it is good for some cancers, it is not for others. And your blood can become too alkaline and you die! Be careful doling out advice.

  19. I’ve been a fan of Dr. Burzynski after attending 4 funerals in a (very hard) year. Three (and one was a 13 year old girl) died from what was called cancer. However, they were doing great until they began their cut, chemo, and burn therapy. After their ‘treatment,’ death became imminent. That Year of Tears made me realize that cancer treatment is a fraud.
    I’m grateful that Dr. Burzynski’s case has been dismissed. Thanks for keeping us all informed.

    • Dr Simoncini?

      Cancer is a fungus? This man is batsh*t insane. He is no longer a Doctor he was stripped of his credentials and was successfully prosecuted for manslaughter, fraud and medical negligence in Italy. He also falsified his data in his so-called “research” He has since teamed up with David Icke (yes he of the “the planet is run by shape-shifting alien vampire lizard people” guff).

      Do you really want to entrust your life to someone who says all cancer is a fungus because it is white? How does he know all cancer isnt bread? or really small washing machines?

      The guy is an idiot, and a dangerous idiot.

      When will you alt-med believers seriously start to look at real evidence instead of listening to lovely cutesy happy little bed-time stories? Yes healthy eating and healthy living can do wonders for your health, and yes Big Pharma does some very bad things, but please, just because Big Pharma does bad things sometimes, doesn’t make fraudsters like Simoncini or Burzynski brave, maverick or (most importantly) RIGHT!

    Great news! My son did a college research paper on his treatment this year. The prof said there’s no way my son could be responsible for such educated language, that he must have cheated. He answered that, well, we discuss alternative therapies all the time in our family and have for years. She said he knows his stuff! I’m glad. Information worth knowing well.

    • We’re part of Samaritans Ministries health sharing plan too! I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this alternative to traditional insurance. It’s so refreshing to receive newsletters that are encouraging members to seek better/non-traditional healthcare if they so choose. We didn’t join until early summer so we missed their addressing this doctor. However we have been Reading about him since Dr. Mercola first sent out an article/video link. Hopefully this isn’t just another calm before the storm.

  21. I’ve done research on alternative cancer treatments for awhile now and I would definitely say that chemo is a medical fraud in too many cases. It destroys the immune system and permanently damages health. Though I admit I haven’t looked into Dr. Burzynski treatments much though its great that chemo alternatives are gaining ground.

    • Yes Kelli, I have worked in a hospital for almost 30 yrs and “Cut, Poison and Burn” is the most disgusting thing I have ever had to witness, and then having to watch my own Dad go through it.. I have learned so much since then, almost 15 yrs ago…if you are willing to spend the time and energy to research the truth..you will be astounded by what you find! I have to say that not all doctors go along blindly..but the vast majority do or at least do not know what the options really are…big pharma is very powerful and deceitful and they obviously get to have major input at the educational levels… the main thing that I believe we all can take away from this victory of Dr. B, is that we must have choices…REAL CHOICES…and that takes men like Dr. B who is willing to try another way… God bless all those who are in this struggle as I believe it will eventually touch almost everyone personally, if we aren’t educated and prepared to do battle. Life is a gift from God and it is a beautiful thing indeed..as I look in the face of my first precious grandchild..

  22. I have experienced this treatment and this case is not the “persecution” you claim. This treatment is NOT harmless! It can be deadly itself. They don’t mention that when you show up. It was $20,000 upfront for the first few days of treatment. How is this not monopolizing?? Like chemo, it makes the patient sick and unable to function normally. It requires a complete overhaul of your life(and diet) and the lives of those around you. Not to mention the antineoplastons WREAK!! I cannot even describe the awful smell that you are subjected to all day, every day. It permeates the house, everything, and everyone it touches. While I’m sure the treatment works for some, so does just a dietary change, so does doing nothing, so does a placebo. The FDA approval doesn’t mean anything. If there’s enough money, the FDA has approved many drugs that are then found to be deadly. In our experience, every patient that we met while there was dead within 2 months of returning home.
    I do agree that every patient should have the right to choose their treatment. However, there is a lot of info missing about this particular case and this clinic. The government may not be as unfounded in their case as you are leading people to believe.

    • Hi Lynn,

      If you don’t mind me asking, what type of cancer were you diagnosed with and which stage? How old are you and what is your lifestyle like? Were you subjected to chemo and radiation prior to seeing Dr. Burzynski? Are you completely cancer free now and if so, how long has it been?

      I’m interested because I had watched the documentary on the Doctor and naturally, it was convincing in the way I portrayed the process the doctor goes through with each patient, and that no treatment is handled the same. Nowadays, cancer is so prevalent in America and I attribute this to the toxins in our air and food. There are innumerable Americans who are completely clueless as to what is in the food throughout big chain supermarkets and the FDA’s primary concern is profit, not the health of the Americans.

      • Jaclyn,
        I was the primary caregiver for my mom. She was 52 had always been healthy & active, no history of cancer(except skin) in the family. She was diagnosed with a glioma. She was scheduled to start radiation for her inoperable brain tumor but instead opted for the Burzynski Clinic. She arrived at the clinic walking, talking and the picture of health. By the time we left 2 weeks later, she could barely carry on a conversation, had difficulty walking and she was so swollen from the massive amounts of steriods they prescribed that the family didn’t recognize her when we stepped off the plane. Soon after arriving home, she had her first seizure which required hospitalization. Then it was back and forth for weeks with her on and off the treatment, in and out of the hospital. (she could not remain on treatment when in the hospital because it wasn’t FDA approved) She died a few weeks later of a brain hemmorage. Another patient who had the same tumor, but had undergone chemo and radiation prior to coming to the clinic died in a similar way a few weeks later.
        As for the treatment, we never actually saw Dr Burzynski~none of the patients we met had. My mom received their standard treatment for the type of tumor she had as did the other patient with the same tumor. As for the clinic and staff, they were amazingly kind and compassionate. My fear is that people will think that this are the best option when that may or may not be the case.
        Like you, I attribute our high cancer rates to lifestyle and toxin exposure. For my own family, I now follow a mostly organic, unprocessed, natural diet which I grow as much of as I can. We avoid exposure to toxins in all household products and do not use plastics.

        • Lynn,

          Thanks for sharing, but I am sorry to hear that it did not work out. I was so interested in hearing from an actual patient (or in your case, you were there step by step) because the documentary only reveals information on patients that were cured, and how quickly there cancer diminished within 1 year or less. My boyfriend’s grandmother was diagnosed about 4 years ago with stage 4 cancer that began as lung but metastasized, and she just passed away on the 9th. She went through numerous rounds of chemo/radiation, went for MRIs and CAT scans and she was doing well, considering. But she did not change her diet and was constantly on the go (even at 80!) she was not your typical grandmother. We had looked into the Burzynski clinic and saw that the initial visit was $25,000, so it was not really an option for us, especially because she was 78 at the time. I’ve seen another documentary related to cancer and how these plants were producing a toxic chemical into the air, but a doctor that was featured stated that cancer is NOT hereditary. I truly believe that is the truth and I am the same was as you where I will only buy organic food, raw milk, and limit myself on eating out. You cannot trust 80% of what is being sold in a supermarket, so I do my research to educate myself the best that I can, because you know damn well the FDA isn’t going to do it for you!

    • How did you do with the treatment? What kind of dietary changes were recommended and were the dietary changes custom for you?

      Reply
      • Colleen,
        I think my response to Jaclyn answers most of your questions. Regarding diet~because the treatment is really high in sodium, the diet eliminated sodium as much as possible. In addition, it was high in potassium and supplemented with it, to offset the high sodium. My mom voluntarily gave up all processed foods and sugars in order to increase her success having read that cancer feeds on sugar. Still, I had to draw blood every few days to have her potassium levels tested. At one point, we had to rush her to the ER to receive a potassium IV because her levels were so low they feared cardiac arrest.
        Prior to her diagnosis, she had a pretty standard diet…except when she did Body for Life and followed the Fit for Life plans.
        Other than the sodium issues, I don’t recall the clinic offering much in the way of dietary advise. They did support her not eating processed or sugars though.

        Reply
    • Lynn, thank you for sharing your story. I don’t know if Burzynski is the right choice for everyone. It sounds like it wasn’t the right choice for your mom. I’m glad that there are alternative cancer treatments out there. I personally know someone who is a cancer survivor through alternative therapy.

      This is exactly why I eat good food plus take a high quality antioxidant and apotosis supplement. So that I don’t have to face this scary issue.
