|Name: Howard Parks
Diagnosis: stage 3B lung cancer (Adenocarcinoma)
Date: January 2009
Use of Poly-MVA from March 2009 to March 2010
I was diagnosed with stage 3B lung cancer (Adenocarcinoma) in January 2009 and had surgery 1-16-09 to remove the upper and middle lobes of my right lung. In February I went to Santa Rosa to be treated by Dr.
Rowen and spent four days in his office receiving a variety of treatments to strengthen my immune system and attack
the cancer cells.
In March of 09 I enrolled in the health program and began to take Poly-MVA, three teaspoons four times per day. I continued at this rate through March 2010. I also received IV C, 75 grams twice
weekly at Dr. Shaw's office not too far from my home. On the days I received vitamin C, I did not take Poly so
I was taking Poly 5 days per week.
I also took carnivore, which is made from the Venus flytrap plant and has a long history of use beginning in Germany
more than 20 years ago.
My general health remained good overall even though I have diabetes, GERD, and prostate problems. I do suffer with
much fatigue. Each PET scan showed
improvement in that the Standard Uptake Value (SUV) of the small nodes in my lungs shrank as time passed, the cancer
never progressed anywhere else in my body, nor did I ever have pain or any discomfort ad a direct result of the
I did change my diet, eating no red meat, but having seafood and some chicken. I do consume a good amount of fresh
vegetables and fruit. I have reduced my carbohydrate intake and never eat rice or pasta, and very little mushroom
pizza. I do have some small desserts such as half a brownie occasionally. I am aware that cancer cells feed on sugar and as a diabetic must restrict my glucose
Overall I deem to be staying ahead of the cancer and winning the war against it. It is impossible to say what part
the Poly played since I have been taking Vit C and Carnivora with the Poly in my daily regimen.
I have cut back somewhat on the amount of Poly I take each day, and have cut back on my IV C as well. My next PET
scan in two or three months will tell if that was a wise decision or not.
At no time have I had any chemotherapy
or radiation. The cancer board
at the local hospital forbid my having radiation from the very beginning. I would not have consented to that even
if it had been recommended.
The oncologist who is kind enough
to order my PET scan said, "
it is too bad you are not having chemo because then I could take credit for how well you are doing"
I guess that says it all!
