My experience with Dr. Zieve and staff,
I was diagnosed with my second primary cancer in 2015. I had been previously diagnosed with CLL Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and then 3 years later with DCIS Ductal Carcinoma in situ. This was a very upsetting and confusing time for me and among my first thoughts after diagnosis were “your immune system is not working right”! I was an otherwise fit 52 yr old at diagnosis.
After a great deal of research, I decided to come to Prescott, AZ for a couple of weeks of treatment before (or I hoped at the time), in place of surgery.
I had seen numerous surgeons and the most prevalent recommendation was mastectomy. Something I did not want to have to undergo.
Dr Zieve evaluated my case, then took it to the round table of integrative oncologists who pointed out that there were over 300 different types of DCIS and that mine was a bad one. Over the course of the next two weeks at the clinic, I met with a nutritionist and had 4 colonics with Newton Bunce, a great guy who went above and beyond. I also had infusions of IV vitamin C, B17 shots, Ultraviolet blood irradiation and ozone treatments to the blood. My blood was tested and evaluated. I was put on an intense level of supplements and daily smoothie. In my spare time I went to a local place for infrared saunas. I also went to a local dentist and had my amalgam fillings replaced.
Although I did wind up having surgery to remove one breast, I'm happy to say the DCIS stayed contained and did not spread anywhere else in my body. I was not faced with the need for further treatment.
I would describe my surgery as successful in more than one way. My recovery was smooth and I was up and walking the halls of the hospital on very the same day as surgery. I believe the detoxing, IV's and dietary changes set me up for a successful recovery.
One of the good things for me about coming to Prescott to Dr Zieve's clinic was the cost was billed on a per service basis and financially was less expensive than some other places I researched, so if finances are an issue for you this place is more affordable.
After my two weeks of treatments, I left feeling I had done something really good for myself. I was treated with great care by Dr. Zieve and all his staff.
All the best on your journey!
