Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Brief Description
Overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe was at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. With doctors and conventional medicine unable to help, Joe traded in junk food and hit the road with a juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe had one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.

With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.

What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection.
Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.

Rethinking Cancer

‘Rethinking Cancer’ tracks the stories of five long-term survivors, whose recoveries range from 15-37 years (and counting), explaining why and how they went a different route with cancer, and, in one case, Lyme disease. Some were led to seek out alternatives after the standard course of treatment failed – literally sent home to die by physicians who said they could do no more for them. Others, after long investigation and soul searching, bravely chose the non-toxic, biorepair course of action because it seemed a more sensible, logical approach – that healing could be better fostered by nourishing, repairing and detoxifying the body, rather than being subjected to toxic substances that would cause further damage and side effects without addressing the underlying problem.

This film features ordinary people who dared to question the medical model:

Rita Znamirowsky – Renal Cell Carcinoma
Rita was faced with a “death sentence” when her renal cell carcinoma was detected in November 1993. Her doctor refused to operate to remove her kidney, saying she was “Stage Four” and should simply go home and die, an event he estimated would transpire within 2 months. At the advice of her husband’s cousin, a kidney specialist in Florida, she flew south intending to immediately have the surgery. When the operation was postponed due to her life-long anemia, Rita reluctantly took the advice of a friend’s son, Daniel Friedkin, who had overcome prostate cancer naturally. Over the course of a year and a half she followed the plan set forth by Friedkin, the number of cancerous nodes gradually decreased in size and number, then disappeared altogether. Rita has been cancer-free for over 15 years.

Michal Ginach – Breast Cancer
Michal received a breast cancer diagnosis and underwent a mastectomy, followed by radiation and chemotherapy. When Michal baulked at the prospect, her oncologist said she would have a less than 15% chance of recovery without treatment. Not wanting to have a poor quality of life from the side effects of treatment, if this was indeed to be the end of her life, Michal chose a different path… Now a practicing psychotherapist, this mother of two has been cancer-free for over 25 years.

Lou Dina – Bone and Lymph Cancer
In the early 1970s, mechanical engineer and classical guitarist Lou Dina was diagnosed with bone cancer in his wrist which had also spread to his lymphatic system. Following conventional doctor’s orders, Dina received traditional radiation and one treatment of chemo before his “methodical engineer’s mind” led him to seek out possible alternatives. Within a couple of months, he took tests which showed a decrease in cancer activity. With time, Dina’s wrist recovered and he began to again play classical guitar and be a strong patient advocate.

David Walant – Lyme Disease
The experience of Ridgefield, CT resident David Walant demonstrates how bio-repair is a system applicable, essentially, to any kind of chronic disease. When Walant was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 1989, a time when the disease wasn’t widely known, he followed the recommendation of his family physician by taking a course of standard antibiotics. After finishing the course, Walant’s symptoms returned. Changing to a nutritional approach his healing response was rapid. “As I got to the second day, 80% of my symptoms had totally left…”

Doris Sokosh – Breast Cancer
First diagnosed with cancer in 1971, she underwent radical surgery to remove her breast and uterus. When her weight dropped to under 90 lbs, her doctor told her husband she was terminal, there was nothing more that could be done and effectively sent her home to die. Her husband could not accept her fate and began a last chance hope to nourish his wife, who at this point could barely move or speak. Over the course of weeks, Sokosh began to show signs of recovery; with eyes so clear a friend commented “they are white like a baby’s.”

A key factor in these success stories also seems to be that each of the 5 took an active role in designing and carrying out their treatment. These five cases are representative of a large and growing pool of well-documented, long-term recovered patients from across the nation.

The path these patients took may not be for everyone, but it’s certainly worth knowing about. Patients and doctors have a right to be informed about all viable medical options, especially when facing a life-and-death struggle with an adversary like cancer.

In addition to their stories, this film includes a thoughtful discussion of the cases by two physicians, Philip Incao M.D., a practitioner of Anthroposophical Medicine and Sheryl Leventhal M.D., a former oncologist presently practicing Functional Medicine. These people represent successes that mainstream medicine and the public ought to know about.
