Just thought I'd let you all know I am going here for treatment. I'm leaving in a couple of weeks and will be gone for two weeks so back the end of April. I don't know a lot about this doc and the web site doesn't give a ton of info. What I do know are several people who've had great results treating with him for both Lyme and cancer. Wish me luck. I will report back in May!

Have not thoroughly researched this doc and treatment, but the mention of the Bradford clinic in Mexico does raise some concerns.

Please be aware of the dangers of IV bismuth if that is one of the treatments suggested. There is an article in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients from several years ago regarding the treatment program in use several years ago. Don't know if that is the current protocol or not. Pretty sure that the article I mentioned is online.

Barcelona! I've always wanted to go there.

Will you be able to spend a few days sight-seeing?

Do you know Spanish or you have translator?

I hope it is everything you are looking for and you come back 100% well.

May health be with you!

Toxic mold was suppressing our immune systems, causing extreme pain, brain fog and magnifying symptoms. Four days after moving out, the healing began.

Better than Barcelona ... Marbella, on the Costa del Sol. I've never seen the Mediteranean before. If I can manage the travel, it should be a great trip.

No translator and very little Spanish. I'm hoping we will run into enough people who speak English.

I don't know about sight seeing. I guess it will depend on how I feel. It's hard for me to even get out of the house or walk much at all, so I'm not counting on having the energy for sight seeing. But maybe.

"I don't know a lot about this doc and the web site doesn't give a ton of info..."

Wow, how did you arrive at the decision then? Don't mean to be mean, but that's a big step to take...

Cold, I decided to do this because I just really need to do something. I'm not someone who can take antibiotics for years. It just doesn't feel right for me. This doctor uses nutrition, orthomolecular medicine and detox. My understanding is that he has a million dollar microscope which he uses to diagnose. He can tell exactly what bugs, parasites and nutritional deficits you have, which makes it easier to kill bugs, detox and provide the proper nutrients. Although I don't know a lot about the clinic, I do know some people who've had miraculous recoveries there. We all know there are no guarantees here, but I feel led to go here. So, as someone else said, nothing ventured, nothing gained and at least it's in a beautiful part of the world. I havent had a vacation in quite some time.

10,000, which will come to around $14,000 I think. That is for 2 weeks of treatment. For that money I sure hope it helps a lot! We've had some amazing friends helping us fund raise for it.
