Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Case Studies: Biological Dentistry in Oncology Care

by | Jun 4, 2024 | Brain/Cognitive, Cancer, Case Stories, Dental | 0 comments

Patients who consult me are typically aware that my specialty is not confined to a specific field within medicine; rather, it encompasses General Internal Medicine and Integrative Medicine. Despite this, I consistently see cancer patients seeking second opinions, who are interested in Acupuncture Meridian Assessment (AMA) to determine potential parasite issues or dental-related problems. I always emphasize that I am not an oncologist—I do not specifically treat cancer, but rather, I treat the whole patient. Two areas often overlooked in medicine are hidden dental infections and parasite infestations.

On occasion, patients inquire about my success rate for specific medical conditions. For instance, I recently consulted with a physician’s wife diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer, with metastases to the liver and lung. I explained that I do not specialize in cancer treatment, that I am a solo, private practitioner—not a cancer institution—and that my approach is to address underlying issues rather than directly targeting cancer cells. I also informed her that I do not have statistical data to provide my success rate.

Unsatisfied, she pressed for a success rate. After some thought, I told her that patients willing to extract their infected teeth generally had a better response, a higher survival rate regardless of the choice of therapies she chooses, than those who do not adhere to my dental recommendations, which often involve the extraction of all problematic teeth. From my perspective, the more extractions of bad teeth, the better. However, such recommendations can deter patients who are not prepared for such measures. Her crowned tooth looked normal on dental X-ray, but it was affecting her large intestine and lung, as indicated by AMA and the Tooth-Organ Meridian Chart. As expected, she did not return for follow-up. The case ended there—no action was taken, no harm was done, but was it the best outcome for her?

The cause of glioblastoma is largely unknown. The prognosis is generally poor, with survival following diagnosis averaging about one year, regardless of whether standard medical care—which often includes craniotomy with brain tumor resection, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy—is administered. The term “glioblastoma multiforme” was introduced in 1926, based on the belief that the tumor originates from glial cells and has a highly variable appearance due to the presence of necrosis, hemorrhage, and cysts.

Over the past two years, I have seen several cases of advanced-stage Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM). Three of these patients, from Michigan, Washington, and Canada, agreed to extract their teeth. They are still surviving against all odds. Here is a summary of their stories, which I am presenting at a cancer talk at IGMEDT in Vienna on June 14, 2024.

Their common denominators included dental problems and parasite and fungal infections. Each patient extracted their problematic teeth, took cycles of antiparasitic and antifungal medications, and had insulin potentiation therapy (IPT), along with IV UV/Ozone, IV vitamin C, and chelation if indicated.

Summary of 3 Glioblastoma Multiforme Patients

   The figure below shows the three patients’ Acupuncture Meridian Assessments (AMA), translating their medical conditions into unique meridian-based frequency scales; you can think of them as musical scales. While the shared diagnosis is Glioblastoma Multiforme, each patient exhibits a unique meridian frequency pattern, indicating which meridians are impacted. Medication testing was conducted to see which medications were indicated for each patient. AMA was repeated at each visit to monitor progress and adjust additional treatment.

Initial AMA Readings for 3 Glioblastoma Multiforme Patients

Each patient’s dental panoramic X-rays, marked with X’s where teeth were to be extracted, are shown below. Although the X-rays appear normal, my AMA energetic testing indicated infections in these cases: 1) two upper root canals and two lower bicuspids, 2) one baby tooth, and 3) one upper and one lower molar.

Case Study: A 46-Year-Old Canadian Patient with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)

This case involves a 46-year-old Canadian patient who was first diagnosed with glioblastoma in 2022. Following a resection of the frontal lobe, chemotherapy, and radiation, the tumor initially shrank. However, it returned in 2023. When I first saw her in April 2023, she had difficulty speaking and displayed a flat affect with no facial expressions, though she was able to understand and respond with nods. At that time, 13 out of 40 meridians were out of balance.

A significant step in her treatment was the extraction of an infected baby tooth. One year later, she exhibited normal spontaneous expressions, and her speech was articulated. There were no midline shifts in her brain, and all 40 meridians were balanced. She provided me with an old MRI from 2023 and a new one from May 2024 for comparison.

Her treatment regimen included an alternating cycle of ivermectin, pyrantel pamoate, praziquantel, tinidazole, doxycycline, and wormwood for 10 days, followed by oregano oil, nystatin, itraconazole, and fluconazole for 10 days. She was also exposed to high levels of fungal mycotoxins, Ochratoxin A and Mycophenolic Acid. This cycle was repeated for one year, and she continues to take antiparasitic, antibiotic, and antifungal medications. She underwent insulin potentiated therapy (IPT) twice, IV UV/Ozone, and IV vitamin C, as well as DMPS chelation therapy for high levels of mercury, lead, and gadolinium. Her diet consisted of 50% fat, 30% protein, and 20% carbohydrates, and she followed a food rotation diet based on an allergy test and a blood type O diet.

Pre- and Post-Treatment AMA for Canadian Patient

From my perspective, the most crucial step was the extraction of her infected baby tooth, which appeared to be normal on a dental X-ray. This dental infection had been a constant source of infection and inflammation near the brain for many years. Without a biological dentist willing to extract the tooth, her chances of overcoming this deadly brain tumor would have been slim.

Now more than ever, we need biological dentists for all chronically ill patients: those with cancer, Lyme disease, autoimmune problems, and neurodegenerative diseases. Choosing a biological dentist is like choosing between a red pill or a blue pill—you don’t know what you’re getting into. I recommend contacting IAOMT or IABDM for a referral to a local biological dentist. Choose your dentist wisely. Biological dentistry is an integral part of oncology care.
