A quack says he has saved lives. Guess what, dude, lots of people say that and are DEAD wrong.
A Bothell naturopathic physician suspended over an experimental cancer treatment spoke out for the first time Friday, defending his practice and alternative medicine.
The state suspended Dr. John Catanzaro indefinitely. It was not his patients who complained, the doctor says, but another health institution not familiar with his naturopathic medicine.
Outside his Health & Wellness Institute of Integrative Medicine and Cancer Treatment, a sign reads, “There’s a new hope for cancer treatment.”
Catanzaro says his alternative medicine was saving lives.
He made each shot he gave a patient included the patient’s own DNA. Although experimental, he says, the personalized treatment significantly boosted his patient’s immune system.
“The success rate of the therapy is greater than 35% in moving them into a cancer-free space,” Catanzaro said.
The doctor has already appealed his suspension and has a hearing set for August.
Perhaps the health institution understands stuff about medicine that naturopaths do not. Naturopathy is not a very effective treatment system.
These are not controlled trials. The mechanism has not been tested or defined. This is not the way medicine is done, by your claims. Publish and share with the world. This instead is the epitome of quackery. The problem is not that he deceived people because that does not seem to be the case. But that experimental treatments can’t be tried haphazardly on anyone who consents and then a claim made that they are working. Desperate people are desperate. I suppose they paid him for treatment? This is misleading to the public in general.
