In October 2010, I was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, after a
bout with Shortness of Breath, Bronchitis & Pneumonia. I met with the
hospital Oncologist and was offered Chemotherapy every 3 weeks without an end
date. This would offer 2 – 2 ½ years of life.
Quality of life was not guaranteed, so upon recommendation
from a family friend we sought alternative integrative treatment from Dr. Bob
at Reno Integrative Medical Center. I began the 3-week Boot Camp in January 2011.
I entered treatment with a depleted immune system, limited walking ability,
fatigue, weakness, lacked focus, in pain after surgery and labored breathing.
Boot Camp consisted of IPT (low-dose targeted Chemo), UVBI, PRP, B17, Vit C
Drips & various other immune fighting/boosting IV supplements. After Boot
Camp, I left Reno stronger, with more energy & on the way to building a
better immune system, & living with Mesothelioma.
I continued treatment at
RIMC thereafter monthly, bi-monthly, & have now progressed to every 6
months with UVBI, B17, PRP, Vit C & other supplements.
I now have quality of life, enjoying grandkids, family,
friends, church, watching sports, being a member of the VFW, yet continue
living & healing from Mesothelioma.
RIMC is unparalleled in medical care. The staff has offered
a family environment that allows positive, easier healing while providing the
utmost in professional medical care.
The continued education of Dr. Bob in cancer research has
resulted in benefiting all his patients. He strives to treat patients with all
new knowledge & protocols for the betterment of our care. I thank Dr. Bob
& his staff for a great atmosphere for healing & feel blessed by their
continued love and care.
