Burzynski: The Movie … have you seen it?

Last Friday as we gathered for our weekly breakfast, fellowship and Bible study; my beloved brother and mentor Corban simply said ‘Burzynski: The Movie’ … watch it on Netflix (I believe there are a number of other ways you can watch it online for free – start at the website).  So I added it to my streaming queue and on Monday night my wife and I sat down to watch this interesting documentary.

Since 1977, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has been offering antineoplastons therapy for the treatment of cancer at his clinic in Houston, Texas with great success.  Apparently the antineoplastons actually target the specific genes that allow cancer to grow and flourish.  Anybody familiar with chemotherapy understands it kills a lot of healthy cells as well as cancer cells.

Here is one of the movie trailers …

The concerning and disturbing aspect of this movie is that for almost 4o years the FDA has unsuccessfully and relentlessly tried to stop Dr. Burzynski every step of the way … and when the head of the FDA states why he will never stop that pursuit … you will simply be dumbfounded.  The good news … Dr. Burzynski continues to offer treatments that quite frequently work … and he continues to win his court battles.

I have no plans to change my cancer treatment in the near future … but it is good to know about some of the alternatives that are out there in the event we find what we are doing now isn’t working.

If you have seen the video, or better yet have some personal experience with Dr. Burzynski and antineoplastons, please leave a comment sharing what you know.

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
