Hi! This is Savvas story. Could you please send it to the support group ?
I would like to share with you our success story with Poly-MVA . Our success story is regarding my brother in law Savvas 36 years old who has (had)
a brain tumor.
On the 23/12/2003 (December) after an MRI we discovered that Savvas has a large
malignant brain tumor which could not be removed by surgery. In January of 2004 an open
biopsy was performed at Karolinska University Hospital which showed an Astrocytoma Low grade 2. The doctors decided that they would only perform radiation treatment and alln would be well. Radiation
treatment ended by the end of April of the same year. At the beginning of June, a nightmare of seizures began, 5-6 daily. Savvas was taking
the maximun dosage of medication for the seizures without result.
In July he has an MRI which showed that the tumor had grown in size in many regions and became higher Glioma. The neurosurgery of Karolinska proposed immediate chemotherapy (CCNU). After a lot
of thought and research, we decided not to proceed with chemo as it did not help in cases of brain tumors.
Starting on 1 August 2004, Savvas was administered Poly-MVA (8tsp daily) and few days later he stopped steroids.
His last seizure was on the 20th a August 2004. He returned to work at the end of September. He felt very well.
At the beginning of October 2004 the headaches started and we realized that something was wrong. At the end of
October an MRI was performed which showed that the tumor had not grown in size but was colored with white spots
in many areas. We were wondering why this should happen when all was going so well. Maybe
because he had continued to
smoke the effectiveness
of POLY was reduced.
After consulting with Gary Matson , Savvas started 16 tsp of Poly
daily and the 4 corners of protocol and
homeopathetic drugs for edema . Several days later the headaches begun to improve
where by the end of December
had gone completely.
Savvas continued to work during this period. On the 2nd of February 2005 the last MRI showed the tumor had stopped
growing and had changed color to grey. It also showed no swelling. All this was unbelievable. After the procedure,
the doctor who performed the MRI searched for my sister to give her the wonderful news, asking for information
We are so happy with the results, so please do not ever doubt for POLY. It is obvious that some peoples require more time and others a higher dosage for the results to show.
UPDATE: 10 of June 2005 MRI CLEAN.
We couldn't cope with these difficulties alone, if we didn't have Gary so close to us, no matter the distance.
THANKS GARY for all the help .
We thank God that we had learned about POLY in time.
Love to all of you

UPDATE: March 01, 2007
I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT LAST MONTH SAVVAS HAD A CLEAN MRI. FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS SAVVAS IS CANCER FREE.
FOR THOSE THAT MIGHT NOT REMEMBER SAVVAS HAD A BRAIN TUMOR THAT COULDNíT BE OPERATED AND HAD RADIATION. WE DENIED CHEMO WHEN
DOCTOR AFTER RADIATION INFORMED US THAT THE TUMOR RECURRENCE WAS HIGH AND WE DECIDED TO START POLYMVA.
SAVVAS IS STILL ON HIGH DOSE 60 ML DAILY(12
TSP DAILY) AND WE BELIEVE THAT
BRAIN TUMOR IS UNDER CONTROL. UNFORTUNATELY, RADIOTHERAPY CAUSED SERIOUS PROBLEMS REGARDING THE DESTROY PITUITARY
DID ANYBODY FROM THE GROUP HAVE ANY SIMILAR CASE? IF SO KINDLY SHARE AND GIVE ANY INFORMATION THAT COULD BE HELPFUL.
TWO WEEKS AGO SAVVAS STAY IN THE CLINIC FOR SEVEN DAYS BECAUSE OF PITUITARY WITH SERIOUS PROBLEMS AND SEIZURES
THYROID WAS DESTROYED DUE TO PITUITARY (ON THYROID THERE ARE 3 SMALL TUMORS) WE DONíT KNOW IF ITíS MALIGNANT ALTHOUGH
5% IS THE RISK. NOW SAVVAS IS TAKING STEROIDS AND THYROXIN WHICH WILL BE FOR WHOLE LIFE. ALL THESE HAPPEN BECAUSE OF RADIATION.
IF WE KNEW ABOUT POLYMVA EARLIER ON SAVVAS WAS NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY RADIATION THERAPY BUT ONLY ON POLY. DOES ANYBODY
FROM THE GROUP KNOW IF POLY WORKS WITH THYROID CANCER IN CASE WE FACE THIS PROBLEM AND ANY ALTERNATIVE FOR THYROXIN?
