Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Antineoplaston therapy – End Stage, Complete Remission, Cure?

Share Button

Shame on you Forbes and Peter Lipson. Antineoplaston Therapy (ANP) From The Burzynski Research Institute put me in Complete Remission from my Incurable Cancer.

Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, The Burzynski Research Institute (BRI) and antineoplaston therapy (ANP) are some of the most controversial names, places and cancer therapies in the U.S. today. I should know. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2/94, underwent induction therapy, an ASCT, multiple radiation sessions and finally, was told by my oncologist “there is nothing more we can do for you.”

Dr. Rassiga told me that at the end of September of 1997.

I then underwent antineoplaston therapy  (ANP) from 11/97-4/99. My multiple myeloma bone lesions shrank and disappeared over the course of those 17 months.

I achieved complete remission by 4/99 and have remained multiple myeloma-ever since. By the writing of this post, 7/30/19, I have been MM-free for more than 20  years. Pretty good results for an “incurable cancer” wouldn’t you say Peter Lipson?

It almost impossible to document positive outcomes from non-FDA approved cancer therapies. Nay-sayers, such as Peter Lipson and his article below, can more easily cast doubt on an “out-of-the-box” therapy by jumping on the bandwagon with the many other “experts” who slam the BRI and ANP.

Cancer patients contact me frequently asking about ANP in general and ANP for MM specifically. If conventional oncology offered MM patients ANY hope do you think these patients would be so desperate?!

Multiple Myeloma patients have a 5-7 year average life expectancy according to the ACS. If they follow only conventional oncology. If your oncologist gave you this kind of prognosis. If you were diagnosed with MM,  wouldn’t you want to do more aka a better prognosis?

I am both a long-term MM survivor and MM cancer coach. Scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

FDA Documents Paint Disturbing Picture Of Burzynski Cancer Clinic

“The centerpiece of Burzynski’s treatment is a drug he refers to as “antineoplaston therapy”. They have never been approved by the FDA for the treatment of cancer, and the only way Burzynski has been able to sell and administer them is under the auspices of “clinical trials.”

Despite decades of giving antineoplaston therapy, Burzynski has failed to publish any data (that is, human clinical trials data…

(One could also argue that the slogan displayed on his website (“First, DoNoHarm!”) is also a bit mendacious given the facts discussed below.)

Earlier this year, the FDA finally visited the Burzynski Clinic to take a peek around. Through FOIA request, a number of bloggers have been looking over the documents for a few months, but now they have been released publicly.

According to the Declaration of Helsinki,

It is the duty of physicians who are involved in medical research to protect the life, health, dignity, integrity, right to self-determination, privacy, and confidentiality of personal information of research subjects. The responsibility for the protection of research subjects must always rest with the physician or other health care professionals and never with the research subjects, even though they have given consent.

What this says about Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski I’ll leave to the reader’s interpretation.”

Hello. I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in January 2018. I had to have my L3 vertebra removed as it had totally collapsed and there was a growth.
I was sent to a haemotologist and asked him for explanations and to give me time. He He was not interested so I changed my diet completely and used supplements to help reduce the myeloma. Unfortunately, my T4 compressed in January 2020 and then my C5 in August 2020.
I started canna honey oil in September and it has truly truly helped with pain.
I want to do your coaching course but I live in South Africa and with the rate of exchange it makes your fee exorbitant. Please can you let me know how your coaching would help me? I would not be able to do Dr Burzynski’s therapy as I live live in South Africa.
I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards. Sue Clarke

    Hi Sue,

    PeopleBeatingCancer has a grant that supports MM Cancer Coaching patients that cannot afford the program at list price. The grant provides the MM CC program at a 50% discount.

    The MM CC program will help you if you think that 21 guides and 24 lessons discussing everything from anti-MM nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle combined with information about conventional standard-of-care therapies is what you need to control your MM.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    David Emerson

    David Emerson says last year

    Hi Christine-

    Please call the Burzynski Institute to confirm- my understanding is that ANP is offered on an outpatient basis. In other words, when I underwent ANP over a 17 months period, I did so from my home in Cleveland, Ohio. You may have to go to the BRI at times but please confirm this.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

David,
Diagnosed with MM in May this year. Revlimid, Ninlaro and Dex have taken me from 70% invasive to 5% as of today. From reading below it seems you don’t necessarily recommend Burzynski if things are controlled by these types of medications. Correct? How long did you require treatment to achieve the incredible remission you’ve had? Did you do oral or IV treatment. FYI, just contacted the clinic and it is currently (2019) $7000 per month for oral and $17,000 per month for IV. No insurance accepted. Doesn’t include travel, tests, etc. Not everyone gets the option of choosing which treatment. Depends on your genetic work up.

A very good friend of mine was recently diagnosed with a stage 4 malignant brain tumor. He has been through radiation and chemotherapy as well as two operations/procedures to relieve pressure cranial pressure. His wife and his father are at a loss and have been told theres nothing more that can be done for him… basically he was sent home to die. I have seen the Burzynski documentary on Youtube and have shared it with them. They are desperately seeking information on getting my friend a consultation with a knowledgable doctor who can determine whether or not he would be a good candidate for an ANP treatment. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much,

    Hi Stanley/Donna-

    I am sorry to learn of your situation.

    If you are asking about antineoplaston from the Burzynki Research Institute in Houston Tx., there a too many pros and cons to list in an email reply to you. I’m happy to discuss this therapy with you over the phone (no charge) if you are interested.

    It’s your call. I am not a medical doctor. I am a long-term cancer survivor who underwent ANP therapy when I was end stage for a different type of cancer.

Mr Emerson, I purchased your program in September and it was a computer based program, do you offer your program in print? I never did have the phone conversation with you that came along with the purchase of your program. I would like to talk with you and am wondering your fees for coaching /consulting on a regular basis. This disease is confusing and looking for a more holistic view other than a Mayo viewpoint! Also I am going to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn. November 27 for testing and then Stem Cell collection, they said to plan for 8 to 12 days depending on how fast I turned out Stem Cells. At this time I don’t have a SCT scheduled.

My husband has MM, what is ANP? How does it work? you said the course of 17 months, did you stay at the clinic or how did you doit? Thank you for you time

    David Emerson says 3 years ago

    Hi Joanne-

    I am sorry to learn of your husband’s MM diagnosis. Several things. ANP stands for antineoplaston therapy. No, I did not stay at the clinic in Houston for 17 months. I traveled to the clinic once a month for testing, more ANP and to confirm results. ANP is comprised of peptides which are the building blocks of proteins.

    The issue of ANP therapy for MMers is complicated- not only is Burzynski himself controversial (many oncologists consider Bruzynski to be a quack) but there is the issue of cost, efficacy, FDA approved MM therapies, others. My advice to those MMers who ask me about my experience at the BRI is that I responded well to the therapy but that the FDA requires all MMers to undergo conventional therapies before ANP.

    On the subject of conventional FDA approved MM therapies, I encourage you to learn about and pursure evidence-based integrative therapies, as well as other evidence-based but non-conventional complementary MM therapies.

    Do you know your husband’s stage at diagnosis? Any symptoms such as bone damage or kidney involvement?

    can you help me help my good friend with stage 4 brain cancer” How does he go about getting a consultation to see if he is a good candidate for ANP treatment and maybe a ballpark estimate on the cost of such treatment. Also, can you recommend or suggest an alternative or homeopathic type supplement he might try in the meantime?

David, how does one enroll for ANP? Is this something that is regulated? Any idea of the cost and the process involved to become a candidate? I have recently been diagnosed with MM, 35 years old. I’m not ready to jump on the chemo wagon just yet and am exploring all options.

Reply
    David Emerson says 4 years ago

    Hi Maria-

    The process of thinking through ANP, the pros and cons of ANP and the BRI is more complicated than what I can explain in an email. Much of your thinking will revolve around therapies for MM in general both conventional (FDA approved) and evidence-based, non-conventional. At 35, a diagnosis of MM is young. Keep in mind however that I was 34 when I was diagnosed so please question the “incurable” label.

    Please consider the MM Cancer Coaching program. I will link a free webinar below for you to learn more. There are a host of both conventional and evidence-based non-conventional therapies shown to be cytotoxic to MM. Further, if you choose to consult with me we can talk through all aspects of ANP and the newly diagnosed MM patient.

Hi
I have MM I am from the Caribbean. I am at stage three, never got any treatment before. I take Curcumin but that alone is not helping. Do you think ANP can help me. I lost lots of weight, have bone pain, HB 7 and Albumin & Globulin Ratio is 0.2. Protein level is 149 G/L

Reply
    David Emerson says 5 years ago

    Hi Sim-

    I am sorry to read about your stage 3 MM. While non-conventional therapies like ANP, nutrition and supplements may help manage your MM long term, I encourage you to undergo specific chemo ASAP in order to stabilize your health. My guess is that bone pain and other symptoms are very active MM which will continue to negatively affect your health.

    Can you access an oncologist quickly? Say in Nassau or Miami/Ft. Lauderdale?

      “Chemo” could include very harmful chemicals. Darzalex is immunotherapy that’s now available for mm and brought my numbers to normal in 8 treatments and a friend’s in 5 (all his previous chemo and SCT had failed). NO MORE CHEMO, w it’s hideous side-effects, is needed anymore (no SCT either).

      Please suggest Darzalex in place of chemo these days.

      Thanks.

        David Emerson says last year

        Hi Peter-

        I understand what you are saying and as a MM survivor who has lives with several different chemotherapy-induced late stage side effects, I agree with your thinking. Chemo, all chemotherapy regimens, bring short, long-term and late stage side effects.

        It would be a huge disservice to MM patients and survivors if I suggested darzalex in place of chemo as you suggest. Let me explain.

        There are several challenges facing multiple myeloma patients and survivors:

        First, MM is incurable. As such, MM patients and survivors take a combination of chemotherapy regimens one at a time until the patient’s MM becomes resistent to the regimen (MDR), followed by the next therapy, remission, relapse, etc.

        Second, Darzelex is a chemotherapy based on the NCI’s definition of the term and does have short, long-term and late stage side effects. As the article linked and excerpted below states, the serious side effects are rare but they do happen.

        MM patients have died because of darzalex…

        Thirdly, according to the study linked below, darzelex works much better as a MM therapy when it is combined with SOC MM chemotherapy regimens.

        In short, MM patients and survivors need both darzelex AND all other FDA approved MM chemotherapy drugs. The key is to take/urdergo as little chemo, endure as little toxicity as possible while managing your multiple myeloma. Balance the damage done by chemo with the damage done by your MM.

        chemotherapy

        Treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Chemotherapy may be given by mouth, injection, or infusion, or on the skin, depending on the type and stage of the cancer being treated. It may be given alone or with other treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, or biologic therapy.

        Darzalex (daratumumab)

        Effectiveness

        Eight clinical studies looked at how effective Darzalex was at treating multiple myeloma, alone and combined with other cancer-fighting drugs. The research showed that treatment of multiple myeloma was more effective if Darzalex was added to standard cancer treatments than if these standard treatments were given alone…

        Darzalex side effects

        Serious side effects

        Serious side effects from Darzalex aren’t common, but they can occur. Call your doctor right away if you have serious side effects. Call 911 if your symptoms feel life-threatening or if you think you’re having a medical emergency.

        Serious side effects and their symptoms can include the following:

        Infusion reaction, a type of allergic reaction. Symptoms can include:
        trouble breathing
        throat tightness
        feeling lightheaded or dizzy from low blood pressure
        coughing or wheezing
        runny or stuffy nose
        nausea or vomiting
        chills
        fever
        headache
        itching
        Pneumonia, a type of lung infection. Symptoms can include:
        coughing up phlegm (mucus)
        fever and chills
        shortness of breath
        chest pain

        Hepatitis B, if you’ve had it in the past. Symptoms can include:
        worsening tiredness
        yellowing of your skin or the white part of your eyes

        Peripheral sensory neuropathy (nerve damage that causes tingling, numbness, or pain).
        Symptoms can include:
        numbness or tingling
        burning pain
        sensitivity
        weakness in your hands or feet

        Peripheral edema (swelling of the hands and feet). Symptoms can include:
        swelling of the arms or legs
        stretched skin
        skin that dents (pits) when pressed for a few seconds
        Allergic reaction.*
        Thrombocytopenia (low level of platelets, which are a type of blood cell that helps blood clot).*
        Neutropenia (low level of neutrophils, which are a type of white blood cell that helps fight infections).*
        Shingles (herpes zoster infection).*
        This serious side effect is explained further in the “Side effect details” section below.
        Side effect details

        You may wonder how often certain side effects occur with this drug. Here’s some detail on serious side effects this drug may cause.

        Allergic reaction

        As with most drugs, some people can have an allergic reaction after taking Darzalex. It’s not known how often people using Darzalex have allergic reactions…

        Pneumonia

        Taking Darzalex may lead you to develop to a lung infection called pneumonia. This is because if you have multiple myeloma, you’re much more likely to get infections than healthy people.

        In clinical studies, 11% to 26% of people who took Darzalex and standard multiple myeloma treatment developed pneumonia. This is compared to 6% to 14% of people who received just the standard treatment.

        Pneumonia was the most commonly reported severe infection. Up to 4% of people across all the Darzalex studies had to stop taking the drug due to pneumonia. Death from pneumonia was very rare. But if death did occur, it was because of pneumonia and sepsis (a life-threatening response to infection)…”
