|Name: WJ Perlmutter
Diagnosis: Chronic Lymphocytic
Plain and simple, Poly-MVA has saved my life and let me live and pursue my dreams.
After over 33 years of active and reserve service with the United States Navy, I retired at the rank of Captain
which is equivalent of a full bird colonel in the Army or Air Force and one rank below Admiral or General. For
the 33 years, since age 17, the military gave me 100% of all my physical examinations.
One year after retirement, I went to my first civilian doctor, Dr, Harold Pepe who prior to my visit requested
a complete blood count also known as a CBC. Upon examination of my CBC he said, “I think you may have something
but I want to send you to a specialist to be sure. I went to the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Nevada which was
affiliated with the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). Coincidentally I graduated from UCLA back in
December of 1973.
When Dr. Pepe got the results, he called me in and said “Coach, the cancer center confirmed my suspicions. You have a rare type of blood cancer called Chronic Lymphocytic
Leukemia, or CLL.” He also told me that this type of blood cancer has no cure! You can imagine how I felt being told I had cancer and there was no cure.
He then told me after confirming with his internist partner, Dr, Michael Falvo, that they were at a medical conference recently and sat in on a
presentation about a product called Poly-MVA, which was essentially immune system vitamins chemically bonded to the precious metal palladium.
Both Drs Pepe and Falvo recommended that I try Poly-MVA.
After looking at my military medical records, they noticed I had had this condition (based on military CBCs) for
the previous 6 years and it went unnoticed by multiple doctors, as the condition is so rare. In fact, only about
7,000 people in the United States contact CLL per year. Looking up CLL on the internet, it states average life expectancy after diagnosis is 8 years and
I was in year 7. I did not think
I had too much longer to live!
I had been dating a wonderful woman for 7 years as well, and we decided to get married. She also knew of my rare
incurable cancer and wanted to be with me, no matter the outcome. We were and still are truly in love.!!
Now, for the rest of the story:
I called Gary, the Senior Consultant on Poly-MVA at AMARC Enterprises, and he told me they were looking for volunteers
who had a cancer diagnosis confirmed, especially with my type, to serve as a test group to see if in fact Poly-MVA
would work on supporting the body nutritionally to slow or eliminate the growth of the cancer by natural means,
i.e. vitamins bonded to the palladium. He told me the Poly-MVA product coupled with liquid co-enzyme Q10 (CQ-10) would be absorbed into my body and support
my body so to allow my own immune system to combat my CLL. He also suggested I take Extreme Liver, Coral Calcium
and Immuni-T tablets… all natural products with no drugs. To this I personally added fish oil, glucosamine, folic acid in a high dose as recommended
by Dr. Falvo, milk thistle and a baby aspirin daily.
I then went to get another opinion, after 5 months on Poly-MVA, from one the #1 leukemia centers in the world,
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, Houston. I was assigned to Dr. William Wierda, M.D. At
Anderson they did multiple testing on my body and my blood. I went through CT scans, MRI’s, and a bone marrow aspiration
where my hip bone was cut and bone marrow extracted.
Following the extensive testing, Dr. Wierda and his outstanding staff concluded that Dr. Pepe’s initial diagnosis
and the Cancer Center of Nevada’s extensive testing and diagnosis were both correct and I did in fact have CLL.
Dr. Wierda said that M.D. Anderson was testing a new immunotherapy whereby my bad blood would be taken and after
six months of growing and preparing a vaccine utilizing a non-drug therapy which included saliva from a sea snail,
that I would be injected on a regular basis to see if the experimental vaccine would have an effect on my CLL.
During the following six months and since diagnosis of my disease, I continued on the Poly-MVA therapy as recommended
by Gary at AMARC. I had blood tests monthly at M.D. Anderson for over a year and nearly completed the vaccine therapy
when the FDA closed down the program as non-effective. I never stopped taking my Poly-MVA therapy and in Dr. Wierda’s
terms, “we don’t know why your CLL
has not gotten worse, but I’d keep taking and doing what you are doing.” All I was doing was exercising regularly, eating health foods consisting of lots of
vegetables, chicken and fish and of course using Poly-MVA.
I feel great and look great at almost 58 years of age, and believe it or not I am a Captain of a large logistic
aircraft, Boeing f 757’s and 767-s for a worldwide commercial airline. I reported my condition to my aeromedial
doctor who initially told me my airline career was over as CLL was a grounding cancer and I would not be able to
be issued an airman’s medical certificate…but I felt fine! I was physically and mentally able, I had tons of energy,
my lymph nodes were normal, I had little to no bone pain and I spent over 1 hour on an elliptical trainer 4 days
or more per week at level 15 of 20!
I wrote a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Medical Department, along with letters from the
Cancer Center of Nevada, M.D. Anderson and Dr. Pepe. These letters were forwarded to the FAA via my aeromedical
doctor, all describing my totally asymptomatic condition and all of NON-DRUG therapy i.e. Poly-MVA and low and
behold, a miracle happened and I was granted a waiver allowing me to continue my career. For 2 years I had to go
to a cancer doctor every 6 months to ensure I was still asymptomatic prior to seeing my aviation medical doctor
for my FAA first class medical.
Recently the FAA issued me a
6 year waiver and reduced to once a year seeing an oncologist. I’m still regularly taking Poly-MVA and as Dr. Wierda
said, “keep doing what you are doing.”
I am writing this testimonial in Penang, Malaysia while at a hotel on my 12-day trip throughout Asia. I am living
my dream as an Airline Captain, have a great wife and life…thanks in no small part to Poly-MVA! I can’t thank the
staff of AMARC, the FACR, my doctors, friends and especially my family for all the support and love. I hope to
see my 100th birthday as an active and healthy individual who is living and surviving and thriving, in no small
part due to this great product.
