How Anatara Saved My Life
Background: I was diagnosed Stage IV, endometrial adenocarcinoma (uterine cancer) with metastasis in early 2020. I had surgery shortly after and then pursued a course of low dose IPT chemo out of state through July of 2020. Two successive MRIs revealed lesions in my abdomen and liver that were growing. With progression of cancer, I turned to Anatara.
My first visit to Anatara was August 2020 under the care Dr. Lee, a Functional Medicine doctor. I began a mycotoxin analysis and mold detox program, attended practitioner-led EFT sessions and completed a Constitutional Diet Analysis. I started weekly IVs at various times over the course of the following year. Using the RGCC tests and Dr. Lee’s advice for guidance, I added many supplements and used their immunotherapies.
The results have been dramatic. In August 2021, my pet scan resulted in “no evidence of metastatic disease” which some call No Evidence of Disease. Very important lab test levels that Anatara was tracking continued to improve including my circulating tumor cell count (CTC). My Vitamin D level was boosted to 100. The level of mycotoxins in my body continued to drop. I feel absolutely fantastic and have exceeded the initial prognosis I was given. I consider Anatara to be my best kept secret.
I did have a bump along the way. In March 2021, I developed a small intestine blockage and was hospitalized. My western doctors said it could have happened to anyone, including those on full chemo. In my hour of darkness, Dr. Herskowitz was there for me, advising me, making himself available on his personal cell phone and keeping my hopes up. I recovered thanks to surgery and pursued a course of full chemo to be on the safe side. I breezed through chemo with hardly any side effects thanks to the support services at Anatara.
I cannot say enough about the entire staff of professionals at Anatara. Dr. Herskowitz is brilliant at reading my pathology, imaging and obscure lab reports. I really count on his guidance in outsmarting cancer and building a course of action. Dr. Lee is amazing in her approach to whole body health and supporting the immune system. The nurses are absolutely phenomenal and give me great confidence. The management and front office crew and all their staff help me with everything I need to build and execute a solid plan.
I am still on my healing journey, approaching my two-year cancerversary in Jan 2022. I am grateful for every day and grateful to the team that has supported me. – D.E.
