More of something that did not work.” “My husband helped me look into other medical options and called several alternative medical clinics.

Within 2 days I noticed major improvements in my pain levels and my energy and sleep were improved. Every day gets better and better for me. I don’t think that I would have been able to go on without the help of the doctors at Sunridge Medical. I would recommend these treatments to everyone looking for options to treat their cancer. 
Tessa, Buffalo, New York - Stage 4 Colon Cancer Testimonial

My illness began at age 27 with fatigue, stomach pain and joint stiffness. Over the course of about 18 months my symptoms list grew to include muscle weakness and cramping, seizures, night sweats, dramatic weight loss followed by excessive weight gain, insomnia, debilitating weakness, an inability to walk, and tachardia with a resting heart rate around 115 on average. I was sent from one specialist to another. They suspected Lupus or MS or some other autoimmune condition, but the numerous labs and scans failed to confirm a diagnosis. I was given a wide variety of prescription medications and when they failed to help me, I was accused of prescription seeking. Upon seeing me cry from the pain of an examination, one highly recommended doctor I had waited 3 months to see told me I just needed some antidepressants and I would be fine. I had literally given up.” “My parents watched me go from a healthy young athlete to this woman who could barely get out of bed and had to have her groceries delivered. My parents found Dr. Franco. During my first visit, he and his colleagues were not sure what the underlying condition was since all my tests had been negative. What they did know was that my immune system was in bad shape. Instead of turning me away and handing me off to the next doctor like everyone else did, they confidently suggested treatments that would help strengthen my immune system.” “After only one treatment with the injections that he recommended, I walked out of the office pain free with a feeling of optimism. I threw away my prescription bottles. Within three weeks I was feeling like myself again. Upon completion of my treatments I was back at the gym training and back outdoors running and hiking.” “It was not until several months later that the true underlying condition was found. I tested positive for Lyme Disease. In addition, tests showed hypothyroidism, caused by an autoimmune disease and from the stress of the ordeal. I also needed treatment for adrenal insufficiency. The patience and support I received from Dr. Franco and the staff was phenomenal. His compassion and understanding combined with his knowledge and experience creates an environment that provides comfort; a comfort that is so necessary in times of illness. I owe this entire health success story to them.

Wendy, Chandler, Arizona - Chronic Fatigue and Lyme Disease

I went to Sunridge Medical for a second opinion. I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer 6 months ago and did not like the options that were presented to me by my oncologist. I wanted to avoid surgery and radiation and I did not like the idea of taking anti-hormone injections. The doctors at Sunridge listened to me and helped me find other options. My treatment plan includes some western medication and treatments to boost my immune system and decrease my toxicity levels. Surprisingly, my oncologist agreed that this was a good idea. 3 weeks into the program I am feeling great with no side effects and my PSA has dropped from 22 to 1.5.

Tony, Milano, Italy - Stage 3 Prostate Cancer Testimonial

My father was diagnosed with stomach cancer 6 months ago. The was referred to hospice because the oncologist felt that he was too frail to withstand any chemo or radiation. Not willing to give up we looked into alternative medicine and we found several treatments that we wanted to try. Several people had told us that we would have to go to Germany or Mexico to receive these treatments. That’s when we heard about Sunridge Medical on the Dr. Bob Martin radio program. We found out that they offer all the immuno therapies at their facility. My father is doing much better than expected. He has a lot of energy and is putting weight back on. Dr Franco arranged for my father to do a very targeted form of radiation that our oncologist wasn’t even aware of, but he recommends to keep doing what he’s doing because he’s doing great.

Roy, Little Rock, Arkansas - Stage 4 Gastric Cancer Testimonial

I kept complaining about being low in energy, not able to keep weight off in spite of my not eating very much. I wanted to sleep all the time and that’s just not normally me. My doctor said it was just old age and that I should accept it. I thought I would try something different so i went to Sunridge Medical with my problem. After thorough evaluation and some blood work that no one else bothered to run, I found out what my problem was- I was borderline diabetic. I was also low in certain hormones and some other issues. 2 months later, I can’t believe how good I’m feeling. My energy is so high that I have no problem keeping up to my grandchildren. I have my life back. I thank Dr. Franco and Sunridge Medical.

Mark, Sacramento, California - Insulin Resistance Diabetes Testimonial

When I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer with metastasis to my liver, I couldn’t believe it. I never smoked. I was healthy or at least I thought that I was. I ate healthy foods and ran 5 miles 3 times a week. I thought that I was healthy. My oncologist wanted to start chemotherapy immediately but I started doing my own research and found out that there was a very slim chance of chemotherapy by itself working on my type of cancer. I didn’t know where to turn until I found Sunridge Medical Center. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and caring. Dr Franco went over my case with me and recommended specific treatments and also made appointments for me to see their Radiation Oncologist. I am currently using some conventional treatments and natural treatments combined and I am getter great results with no side effects at all. In fact, I feel better than I can ever recall . Dr Franco uses the best of what’s available from around the world, both conventional and alternative. This was more than I ever could have ever hoped for. The team at Sunridge Medical has turned my devastating cancer diagnosis into something not so devastating at all. God Bless them.
