Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST)
“The approach they take here is to help the body, to strengthen the immune system, and to stimulate it, so that the body itself fights the disease”
In 2018, Joseph Turkington’s health started to deteriorate. A usually healthy person, he began to have pains in his stomach area, pains so bad that he eventually decided to seek help. The doctors initially found a cyst in Joseph’s liver, but after surgery and more investigation they also found a tumor in his stomach in April of 2019. Having decided to forego the traditional, and harsh, approach of chemotherapy, Joseph began to seek alternative treatments. Months of searching led Joseph’s mother to find Immunity Therapy Center, and after reading patient testimonials they decided to go for it.
“Doctor Bautista was very welcoming, we felt he was very interested in the case and finding the root of the problem”
Joseph arrived at ITC in critical condition, and after a warm welcome by Dr. Bautista and his team, he began treatment immediately. It took some adjustment for his body to react to the treatments, but by the middle of the second week, Joseph began to see and feel positive results. Months of suffering began to wash away as his condition improved exponentially in the weeks following. By the end of the sixth week of treatment, Joseph’s stomach tumor had shrunk down to 5 centimeters. An additional four weeks of ITC home treatment led to another 1cm reduction in the size of his tumor. Now, Joseph’s blood tests and liver enzymes are back to normal levels, which has allowed him to regain his quality of life and spend more time than ever with his children.
