Alternative Breast Cancer Treatment – L.E.I.S.H., Laser Cancer Treatment

15th April 2008 by Arrow Durfee Posted in Uncategorized

Leith Holt lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She recently got her breast cancer cured at a clinic in Jacksonville, Arkansas, a small town near Little Rock. It cost her $6,250 for five days of treatment with a laser system. I’ll quote part of Leith’s message on it. Feel free to contact her if you have questions. She is truly committed to helping other cancer patients.

“Hi Bill,

I joined your site on August 2, 2007. You gave me much food for thought. I would like to share with you my encounter with breast cancer and the results.

I realized after talking to you today, and reviewing all the information I had obtained on-line, that it was your book ‘Cancer-Free – 2nd Edition’ (which I obtained by e-mail), and your newsletters that put me in pursuit of alternative therapies, and eventually led me to the treatment I received. Without your book and the optimism contained in it, I seriously doubt I would be in a position today to say that my breast cancer is dead and gone.

My family doctor was informed by me during a visit on June 19, 2007 that I had discovered a lump in my right breast. He sent me for a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy on June 22, 2007. I am a 62 year old female who was diagnosed with breast cancer in my right breast on June 28, 2007. The result was breast cancer with lymph node involvement (1 node). It was deemed to be Stage II-Stage III invasive ductal carcinoma (estrogen positive). On June 29th, my family doctor moved to another province, so I was without anyone to help me through the quagmire that was to come.

At first, I went through the normal channels of conventional medicine. I was given an appointment with a surgeon on July 4, 2007. However, after my first meeting with the surgeon and being informed that I had the choice of a total mastectomy or lumpectomy with radiation, I decided to do some investigation of my own. Something kept gnawing at me…to a point where I did not feel that conventional therapy was for me. I then decided to have another appointment with the surgeon on July 24, 2007 to ask questions about things such as survival, recurrence , and other methods used by other institutions.

This was the turning point for me. The surgeon was outraged that I would dare question his determination to do surgery. When I left, I told my husband that I refused to have conventional therapy and would find the answer elsewhere. I cancelled my surgery on July 26th, 2007.

A Naturopathic Doctor started me on some medications, such as triple potassium compound, Host Defense, Tumeric Force, Estrosense etc. On August 27th he ordered a blood test to see what the CA-15-3 marker was. It came back 32, just slightly above normal.

By now I was aware of my treatment alternatives, such as the Budwig Diet, Essiac, Dr. Simoncini, B-17 etc. In early September I ran across a site that intrigued me. The treatment seemed so logical. I investigated further, including listening to radio interviews with this individual. I began daily treatment (about 90 minutes each) on October 15th and finished on October 19th. I had the procedure for 4 days, and an INDEPENDENT ULTRASOUND done the morning of the last treatment on October 19th (the fifth and final treatment was in the afternoon to insure that if there were any stray cancer cells they would be destroyed).

The ultrasound showed that the tumor along with two involved lymph nodes were dead. Both my husband and I were present when the ultrasound was done and the technician allowed us both to view the screen and explained each pass she did. The diagnostic clinic also provided us with a CD of the ultrasound. The tumor which was not overly large in the first place (about the size of a cherry) has reduced about 1/2 in size. It will take my body time to absorb and eliminate the remaining dead tissue (I take special enzymes to assist in that procedure).

I do not wish to see others suffer the results of conventional medicine of cut (surgery) burn (radiation) and poison (chemotherapy). This is a very simple procedure. The site for the clinic at which I was a patient is www.lasemedinc.com

My e-mail address is: wgholt@telusplanet.net.

Thank you.

Leith Holt

P.S. As a result of your site, (Bill Henderson’s www.beating-cancer-gently.com/index.html )I started using MMS about a week ago to build up my immune system and rid it of all things that should not be there, and have passed the information on to many others with health problems.”

    Our treatment does not use any form of iodine! That is an erroneous statement.

    Merle,

    I would love to know more details!

    Have you had this procedure? How long ago? Did it work for you and how do you know it worked?

  5. Tara Says:

    I had treatment in April/May of 2009 in Broken Arrow, OK. Very happy so far.

  6. Bob Criscuolo Says:

    My wife has breast cancer that was at a treatable stage when she had researched for an alternative treatment so she wouldn’t have to go through chemotherapy. My wife is well educated and a very smart person. If it wasn’t for the side affects of chemotherapy she would have done it without seeking an alternative treatment. My wife found LASE MED’s website while researching her type of cancer, so she requested more information about L.I.E.S.H. My wife liked what she had read and what Dr. Carpenter had told her. I will support my wife in whatever her decision is for treatment, so the appointment was made for a consultation at LASE MED. Her tumor was very close to the skin and by the time my wife left for her appointment at LASE MED it started protruding the skin. Two weeks later the L.I.E.S.H. treatment was complete and Dr. Carpenter told my wife she was cancer free. The months that followed showed a reduction in the tumors size from what we can see with our eyes, but the sore grow larger. My wife kept in touch with Wendy Simmons (the office manager at LASE MED) and tried to get Dr. Carpenter to respond to questions on what is going on. My wife became very worried because there were no responses from Dr. Carpenter. My wife told me that Wendy kept telling her the reason that Dr. Carpenter was not responding is because Dr. Carpenter was sick. Nineteen days had past so I called LASE MED and to my surprise Dr. Carpenter answered the phone. I told her who I was and started to explain what was going on with my wife, but it was apparent that Dr. Carpenter knew what was going on because out of her own mouth she told me, “What is going on is not cancer, your wife is cancer free,” Dr. Carpenter got very hostile with me over the phone. My wife’s trust in L.I.E.S.H. treatment became less trustworthy so it was time to seek other treatments. It became a battle of time at this point because appointments for consultations were approximately 6 to 8 weeks to get in and another month for testing and another month to begin treatments. The reason for the long wait is because there are a lot of people with cancer. The day my wife went to the appointment for her tests she had a seizure. The cancer had metastasized and went to her liver and then her brain. She woke from the seizure a day later surprising the doctors and for most of that day she gave the family one last time together. She had told me she felt stupid for trusting in Dr. Carpenter and I told her she is far from being stupid. We try to trust in those that attempt to heal us because they are the ones with the educated guess. I don’t know if anybody has benefitted from LASE MED besides Dr. Carpenter. I’m telling everyone not to use LASE MED. If you have or you’re getting treatment from LASE MED do your self a favor and don’t listen to what Dr. Carpenter tells you about traditional treatments and what the doctors might say. Dr. Carpenter is a QUACK! Please don’t let time go by; get another professional opinion for additional support. There are many traditional treatments now with very good results and they should be advertised to help educate the patient on specific treatments for different cancer issues. For what my wife went through and what the results were from L.I.E.S.H treatments, I’m going to exercise my freedom of speech as an American. Dr. Carpenter claims she invented the machine to administer L.I.E.S.H Treatments. Dr. Carpenter also is the sole operator of this machine when L.I.E.S.H is being administered. If this was a true cure for killing cancer she would be big time rich on the sales of this miracle machine. Instead Dr. Carpenter is ripping people off from their hard earned money and their quality of life. Dr. Carpenter also has a body guard; she claims that it is to protect her from her ex-husband. I guess she never heard of a restraining order or there must be another reason for her protection. It takes a certain type of person to be deceitful and take advantage of vulnerable people for profit especially when it could hinder quality of life or even death. Dr. Carpenter how dare you come to our county with your deceitfulness by fooling vulnerable people out of their money and cheating them from an opportunity to get real professional help. Wendy Simmons this is a question for you to answer in your own thoughts, you have worked at LASE MED long enough to know the business, so how do you sleep at night. No matter what you answer, my own thoughts have an answer for you and Dr. Carpenter. The internet lets any body advertise whether it’s true or faults. The truth of what my wife’s experience at LASE MED is that Dr. Carpenter sounds believable to those who are seeking alternative treatments for cancer. Unfortunately I now know my wife was never cancer free and I will say with out slander to doctor quack, “You have stolen the time that my wife needed for any hope. So Dr. Carpenter said my wife was cancer free, this makes her a liar and Dr. Carpenter took money for her lying and she has stolen time from my wife, this makes her a thief. So Dr. Carpenter represents LASE MED INC and she is a liar and a thief. LASE MED INC SAYS, “NOW IT”S CANCERS TURN TO DIE!” BUT LASE MED INC CAN’T KILL CANCER, SO IT’S LASE MED INCs TURN TO DIE.

    The reasons the Little Rock Office is empty is because of malpractice lawsuits.

  8. Bob Criscuolo Says:

    Sorry for the double input.

    I will agree with LASE MED about one thing, the control from pharmaceutical companies and the ridiculous costs of conventional treatments are not helping the average person, but I feel it’s wrong that LASEMED uses this as a tactic to show that LASE MED INC is not the bad guy. People need to be educated in order to help them decide whither a treatment will be the choice for them. When I asked LASEMED for more information on L.I.E.S.H. they answered more then once, “You will only understand L.I.E.S.H. if you were a Physicist.”

    OK, so for those of you who are not Physicists, the information I’m posting is to share my experience on what my wife went through and the research I’m doing to help people make a better decision when researching L.I.E.S.H. treatment from LASEMEDINC.

    To better understand my intentions: When cigarettes came out with a warning label about the dangers of smoking, not everyone quit. But it helped to educate people on making a choice. Although I’m not the surgeon general and I’m not a Physicist, as an American I need to exercise my freedom of speech to help inform others because of the lack of information.

    The gist of it all: Most of us know about chemo and its side affects. But what do you know about newer treatments using chemo. A Doctor in Boca Raton Florida that is affiliated with Scripps Institute is taking chemo and injecting it into the tumor instead of the whole body. That’s just one of many new conventional treatments I’ve learned about. Another treatment that sounds wonderful is radiofrequency ablation. Unfortunately my wife learned of these treatments after the cancer had metastasized and went to her liver and then to her brain, and there is no treatment at this time for brain cancer. If we knew of these treatments early enough, there would be a very good chance that my wife would still be here.

  9. Wendy Simmons Says:

    Merle,

    I find your post rather interesting, especially since you threatened me with a lawsuit in my office for refusing to give you more treatments! We have also been told recently by Charmagne that you ADMITTED that our treatment worked, but you are such an evil person, just like Robert Moron, to spread lies and slanderous comments about us around the internet. We are fully prepared to file libel lawsuits on both of you!

  10. Wendy Simmons Says:

    For the record, the lawsuits were several months after we relocated, so our relocating had nothing to do with those bogus lawsuits that will go nowhere. You both should be ashamed of yourselves!

  11. Wendy Simmons Says:

    By the way Bob, why are you leaving out the most important detail of all concerning your wife’s diminished success with LIESH…? The fact that she HAD CHEMO AFTERWARD? HELLO? After LIESH, the immune system is VERY important, and with chemo, you destroy the immune system. And ALL OF THIS WAS THOROUGHLY EXPLAINED BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER TREATMENT.

  12. ETK9 Says:

    LMI moved to Oklahoma because the snowballing harassment from the AR medical establishment “mafia,” which would include the U of AR for Medical Sciences and their cronies in higher places, was found to be NOT WORTH LASE MED’S TIME AND RESOURCES! The entire story can be read on the “copycats” page of the LMI website, but to make PART of a long story short, as an example of the way things are done, one of the very people at UAMS who rejected Dr Carpenter’s initial proposal all the way back in 1989, asking her to leave the prototype behind so they could “examine” it, was just this year one of the very people who’s name appeared in an AR press release as having pioneered a “new” development in cancer research… yeah right… being done under a multimillion dollar research grant awarded to him, and strangely enough, using the exact same (patented btw) methods as LMI, with the only difference being the surgical stain being used, which in U of AR’s case, has since proven to be a toxic carbon nano-solution, unlike the natural FDA-approved-for-internal-use stain used by LMI.

  13. ETK9 Says:

    Here, I want you to look at all the hits on this Google search, for the searchterms “cancer” and “PDT” (photodynamic therapy). Over FOUR MILLION HITS. Anyone who wants to accuse Dr. Carpenter of being a “quack” should first read the story on the LMI /Copycats page, documenting the dates of “who was doing what FIRST,” then look at the nothing-short-of-explosive amount of research money being poured into this field, the field of treating cancer with laser light.
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cancer+PDT+&aq=f&oq=&aqi=
    The medical establishment refused to work with her, and ever since has been trying to steal her methods on one hand, while trying to shut her down with the other. Why would there be over four million Google hits for a treatment method that is mere “quackery” as you call it Bob!?

  14. Antonella Carpenter Says:

    Recently, it has been forced upon the attention of LASE MED, Inc’s Technical Team that a Bob Criscuolo has been tirelessly posting all over the web slanderous statements directed to LASE MED, Inc and its Head of Research.
    For this reason, we would like to point the public’s attention toward a few facts:
    Criscuolo’s wife, after the L.I.E.S.H. Therapy and several months of obvious improvement, supposedly had a turn for the worse and needed standard treatment.
    Therefore, LMI and Dr. Carpenter are to blame, because they are a fraud.
    Why? Does this mean to imply that after the standard barbaric treatments, cancer doesn’t return? Of course not!
    Let’s forget that all patients are warned, every day of treatment, that during the healing process, controlled by their immune system, the tumors go through regular stages of swelling up, becoming more or less painful and giving the impression of being active again.
    Forgetting all of that, let’s assume that the cancer actually returned to life in the Criscuolo case, even though science and hard evidence state the contrary, and proves the inappropriateness of most follow-up testing; isn’t it better to re-treat the cancer with a perfectly safe method, devoid of horrible side effects, rather that going for amputation, poisoning and cancer causing radiation?
    Then, of course, there is the issue of the cost. How could we forget?
    How about the fact that our therapy on average cases, has the price tag of one third (1/3) of ONE injection of chemo.
    So , we ask: Of all of Criscuolo’s postings, whom are they supposed to help?
    Commentary brought to you by the Technical Team of a Corporation that, after 25 years of struggle, is still in red.

  15. Bob Criscuolo Says:

    This is a blog to share comments between individuals interested in the subject at hand.
    These comments are used to collaborate opinions amongst each other.

    It’s really nice to know that LASEMEDINC still has their facts wrong.
    My wife never had chemo because she trusted in Dr. Carpenter. Like countless of other people that have to face reality dealing with cancer, LASEMEDINC s pitch to a better treatment sounds wonderful and the prices are much less then chemo. In my opinion you can’t put a price on the quality of life, so that sales pitch sucks. Just like Dr. Carpenter’s observation that my wife’s cancer was gone but it must have returned. I suppose the conventional methods that told my wife that she was never cancer free is a mistake. I believe that mistakes will be made after all we are all human. But how many mistakes are we entitled to when the service is for life’s sake.

    In my opinion LASEMEDINC needs to be investigated by the government for the treatment and its results, not by what LASEMEDINC says. The information that LASEMEDINC suggests people to read is comparing what others do. LASEMEDINC s website promotes business as all businesses websites should do, but their service is not a car wash or some type of food service.

    On the bases of the information I have, in my opinion Dr. Carpenter has lied to my wife.

    I strongly feel that a nonbiased investigation without lobbyist persuasion should be done in order to protect the interest of the public in which LASEMEDINC advertises too.

  16. Bob Criscuolo Says:

    Just a note for those who are interested, the legal term for slander is:

    Slander is the oral communication of false statements that are harmful to a person’s reputation. If the statements are proven to be true, it is a complete defense to a charge of slander.

  17. Bob Criscuolo Says:

    upon the experience you have had at LASEMEDINC you are stating your opinion, don’t let them intimidate you with threats. In this case without the freedom of speech others like us would be subject to a lack of information as I found out later when researching L.I.E.S.H. treatment from LASEMEDINC.

    People don’t always agree with how the FDA works now but its original intentions were to help protect the public. LASEMEDINC performs an alternative treatment and offers it to the public with the claims that its methods are FDA approved. So is L.I.E.S.H. treatment at LASEMEDINC really FDA approved? To me this treatment is being given like a supplement vitamin and even supplement vitamins can’t claim that it is a cure because they are not FDA approved. So in layman’s terms, after L.I.E.S.H. treatment is preformed at LASEMEDINC who and what are the bases on which Dr. Carpenter can claim that you are cancer free?

    If a lawsuit should come about, the court will determine the truth, and it will become posted information for the public to see.

    Below is a link to yet another comment that was recently left by another person who had experienced treatment at LASEMEDINC.

    Next time you hear of a cancer victim dying (several a day every day), go find his or her family and encourage them to sue their oncologist or to create a slanderous website attacking him and his methods, or even better, attacking the things he TOLD the patient and their family. See what happens.
    We all know who you are working for Comrade.

  19. Arrow Durfee Says:

    One must remember that the removal of a tumor, or even the changing of cancerous tissue back to normal tissue will never absolutley cure cancer. You must eliminate the predisposition to cancer, that is the cause.

    So no matter what the treatment may be, conventional or alternative, unless this issue is addressed, there is a chance that cancer will return. As far as I have seen neither the conventional nor the alternative paths have any clear and precise answers on removing predisposition or causative factors. Nor do they really know how to diagnose metastasises during a level where they are without symptoms. So any doctor that says you are cured is really sticking their neck on the chopping block and setting themselves up for a backlash.

  20. Wendy Simmons Says:

    I have one last thing to say about this malarkey, and then I am done. Bob’s wife had a lumpectomy TWO YEARS before coming to Lase Med, and between the time she had the surgery and decided to come to Lase Med, did some alternative treatments, which caused the tumor to break through the skin, which means she had ALREADY tried conventional and other alternative treatments, and decided that they were not working. SO, how exactly are we to blame?! Basically, we were her last resort, as we are for so many people. We have saved many that have been SENT HOME TO DIE!!! I think that is a glorious thing!
