Dennis L., Sr.
My name is Dennis Laferty, Sr. I injured my shoulder when I was twenty-eight, I am now fifty-years-old. I have had three surgeries, thirty seven implants, and an anchor to hold the bicep muscle to the bone. Due to all of this I lost 30 to 45% use of my shoulder. I could not lift my arm above my head as the pain was very bad. The pain was also constant.
My orthopedic surgeon informed me that total reconstructive surgery would need to be done on my shoulder. My general practice physician, Dr. Penhos, recommended a new treatment called “Prolozone”. I was at the point where I would try anything for relief so I agreed.
After just 2 treatments with Prolozone therapy I now have full use of my arm and shoulder. I have very little pain remaining. I feel like a new person! The treatment really works. I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from joint pain.
Thank you Dr. Penhos and The Get Well Center for giving me a part of my life back.
I was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in January, 1985. The disease progressed normally under medication (Sinemet,ect) until September/October 2003, when I underwent a Bi-lateral Deep Brain Stimulation at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. This operation resulted in an improvement of my symptoms, but did not improve certain of the symptoms such as slurred speech, shuffling, dyskinesia, and drooling.
In April 2004 while performing an internet search, I discovered The Get Well Center in Mansfield, Ohio. I subsequently contacted Mrs. Chung, and took the Parkinson’s disease treatment. At the end of the thirty day protocol I made an appointment with my Neurologist who pronounced me as being “free of any symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.” As of today March 5, 2005, I have no symptoms of the disease.
I had a heart attack in May, 1993 and had a single bypass. Then I took rehab therapy, and they realized I needed oxygen. So, I had a test and was diagnosed with “Pulmonary Fibrosis” and put on oxygen 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
I also had a lot of pain in my back, legs, arms and neck and had some lumps in my muscles, which were very sore (especially when they took my blood pressure).
I saw The Get Well Center advertisement in the Mansfield News Journal and made an appointment with Dr. Jadaan. He referred me to Mrs. Insook Chung and I had the Hair Test taken for a diagnosis. In November 2004 I started taking Ultraviolet Therapy treatments three times a week for 12 treatments. By Christmas Day 2004 I did not have to use Oxygen during the day as my oxygen saturation level was at 98%; whereas, before it was at 83%.
Now I am taking the IV Therapy treatment every two weeks as maintenance. It is such a joy not to carry the oxygen everywhere I go.
Presently I am taking Chelation Therapy, Nutrition Therapy, and Plaqex Therapy along with supplements revealed from the Meridian Stress Test. I don’t have near the pain that I was having. I have a lot more energy, and it feels good not to have to take pain pills anymore.
At 31 years old, I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer which had spread to my bones. After the diagnosis I started to look at my options for treatment. I knew I did not want to do regular chemo. My dad found the Get Well Center and suggested I go there. When I arrived there I could barely walk and my overall health was very poor. After 8 weeks of various treatments and low dose chemo (IPT) I have experienced a drastic change. I can walk better, I feel better, and my cancer markers are down. Mrs. Chung, the nurses, and staff truly care about getting you well. The various treatments are explained to you and they treat you based on your individual need, not what the protocol is. If you come here, you have to be willing to make a lifestyle change. The staff here will support you on that journey.
I first heard about the Get Well Center while getting Vitamin C infusions at another doctor. I thought it all sounded very logical and good so I called and talked to Mrs. Chung. After sending all my records, my husband and I went and talked to Dr. Penhos and Mrs. Chung. We then decided this was the way to go. I had been diagnosed with colon cancer in late June 2015; had a section removed including the ileocecal valve. I tried various nutritional programs even traveling to New York, but nothing seemed to be helping. My cancer marker was 300 when I first came to the Get Well Center and it is now at 9. With the IPT, detox, nutrition, and other means of support I am gaining back my health slowly. Dr. Penhos and his staff are very supportive and explains everything to you. Mrs. Chung, Grace, and Gracie, take care of you like you are their only patient. I know that God directed me here and has been my great physician. Each day he uses the people at the Get Well Center to help heal people and give them hope for the future.
When Casey was diagnosed with Stage III cancer, the first thing he searched for on the way home was somewhere to get IV Vitamin C. The Get Well Center was the first thing that came up in the Google search!
My priority was the Greek test! We were so thankful and relieved to have somewhere close that we could go and get both of those, so much more and also support for our holistic beliefs.
Our cancer journey has been more like a date, than “treatment”. We always look forward to the interesting people we get to talk to when there.
We are so thankful for Mrs. Chung, Dr. Penhos, Gracie, Grace, Tabitha, Kim and the rest of the staff!
Casey is now 18 months out with clean scans!!! He still follows a strict organic plant based diet, and doing well! If you would like to follow our “Adventures” I have a Facebook page called Adventures with Jodi (because I had a major recovery from something else before he was diagnosed).
I (H. Mike Bailey) experienced chest pain and difficulty breathing while exercising on a treadmill in June of 2001. This angina and dyspnea was caused by a 99% blockage of the anterior descending artery, which was diagnosed at Mid Ohio Heart Clinic shortly afterwards.
Upon Mid Ohio Heart Clinic’s diagnosis of the problem area of the heart, I was rushed to Mansfield Med Central Hospital where I underwent angioplasty, which immediately relieved the pain. A stent was placed in the area of the anterior descending artery where the major blockage had occurred and another stent was placed in a smaller vessel off of the same main artery.
Shortly after the angioplasty procedure, I was speaking to Dr. Rusty Whittamire and another close friend of mine (Don Miller) and they recommended that I start a treatment called chelation therapy as soon as possible. Of course, I had never heard of such a process and immediately started acquiring information on the web.
To my astonishment, I was totally amazed that a treatment like this existed and wasn’t recognized by the AMA as a preventive measure to ward off heart disease and other illnesses and medical conditions. The more I read on chelation, the more intrigued I became.
I contacted Dr. Hoyoung Chung at the Get Well Center in July 2001 and immediately started taking chelation (EDTA) treatments. I initially took treatments (one per week) and have been taking a maintenance treatment every six weeks for the last four years.
In conjunction with the chelation treatments, I dropped forty pounds of weight and exercise several times a week. That exercise usually consists of a 40-minute workout in which I run at a top speed of 9MPH or speed walk at various inclines. I occasionally lift weights for upper body strength. I feel great and have had no chest pain or difficulty breathing since 2001. Not too bad considering I just celebrated my 51st birthday and that I am still on the job as an Assistant Fire Chief with the City of Mansfield, Ohio. I’m a firm believer in chelation therapy. I truly feel that it has kept my heart and surrounding vessels clear of any blockages. I plan on continuing this regiment of chelation, exercise and watching my diet closely. The old saying “The proof is in the pudding!” holds true.
I would highly recommend the treatments to anyone experiencing a heart problem or other condition. If you’re unsure and a little apprehensive of the treatment, visit the clinic and speak with other people who have had the treatments or obtain information online or from the local library.
In closing, I hope that you will make the right decision and undergo the chelation treatments. If there is anything that I can personally do to reassure or inform you, please leave your phone number with Mrs. Insook Chung and I will personally call you.
The care given to me by The Get Well Center staff, most particularly Mrs. Insook Chung and Grace, has been beyond what one could ever hope to receive at an out-patient or even in-patient clinic.
When I would become extremely cold during IV therapy, I was offered the thermal bed to bring warmth and soothing comfort. Many times my needs were anticipated and met by Grace and Mrs. Chung before I became aware of that need.
The physical surroundings are quite pleasant. Bright lights for reading are also most conveniently dimmed for napping.
My therapy has restored my well-being and health. The immune system building after cancer diagnosis has not robbed me of the quality of life that conventional treatment would have devastated.
I have heard many conversations while receiving hours of treatment. We have come from different experiences and each has a philosophy of his won bet, but we all agree on alternative, individualistic treatment. Loving and concerned care is given here at The Get Well Center.
I was a patient of The Get Well Center, in Mansfield, Ohio in 2015. I came there, with my 2nd onset of Breast Cancer, and was discouraged as well as concerned. I felt like I was surrounded by family at the center. Mrs. Chung was kind, and caring and spearheaded my recovery plan. Grace, was strong and took personal interest in each of her patients. I felt that I received exceptional care from the staff. I continue as a patient of Dr. Penhos, and feel that everyone at the center are in my corner to help me heal. My cancer markers hit the high 300’s. Currently, one of my markers is in the normal range, and the other is only 15 points from normal. I feel this is in large part, due to the care I received at The Get Well Center and I recommend them highly. I thank them, with all my heart.
In 1988 I went to India and picked up a serious pathogen that made me ill off and on for 28 years. I have been everywhere seeking help including the Cleveland Clinic, The Mayo Clinic, The Lahey Clinic and National Jewish Hospital. None of them ever had any answers and I remained ill until finding the Get Well Center right in my backyard in Mansfield, Ohio. (I live in Columbus, Ohio).
The treatments at the Get Well Center, under the careful supervision of Dr. Penhos and Mrs. Chung, have helped enormously with this pathogen and rebuilt my immune system to the point where I now have a normal healthy life again at 67. None of these treatments have ever been tried on me and they have worked well. As well, the staff has been very skillful, knowledgeable and compassionate and I have enjoyed interacting with them very much.
I am extremely grateful to all of you and will pass the word as best I can so others can know of this kind of treatment. I recommend this clinic and approach to anyone who has a similar condition or any kind of a chronic illness. For me, it has made a huge difference.
Before I came to the Get Well Center, I could not work very long before I had to sit down and rest for a few hours. I couldn’t climb stairs without being very short of breath and my heart would race. I could not get very warm or breathe properly. I was always so tired. Some mornings I would wake up just not feeling well and I’d have to lay down again. I would sleep all day and still be tired; I had no energy.
Now after taking the treatments that Mrs. Chung suggested, I feel so good! I can work like I haven’t worked in 10 years! I feel so good! I can go up and down stairs without my heart racing and I have so much more energy! I would recommend their treatment to anyone! Thank you, Mrs. Ching. And thank you God for my good health!
My first day at the Get Well Center was October 27, 2015. After low dose chemo, cleansing detoxification, IV immune boosters, oral supplements, and a vegetarian-like diet, I am doing well.
To say I am doing well is probably an understatement. Prior to coming to the Get Well Center I was diagnosed with 2 primary cancers; grade 3 (highest grade and most aggressive) endometrial cancer that had spread to my neck, meaning now stage 4, metastatic cancer.
According to my last CAT scan (03/03/16) the uterine tumor has ceased to live, and the notable metastatic site in my neck is less then half the size it had been.
My other primary cancer is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which was discovered around the same time as the uterine cancer. At that time my lymphoma doctor said that I was in the beginning stages, and at that time I did not need chemo for that, and may never need it for the lymphoma.
I will see my lymphoma doctor in a few weeks for re-evaluation. I suspect his evaluation will be about the same, as the CAT scan showed the lymphoma to be stable.
Here are some facts that may be of interest to you: I am 69-years-old, not fail, but certainly not robust. Other than a period of about 6 weeks during which I received chemo, I have been able to continue hiking. I am not back to doing 5 mile hikes 4 to 5 days a week. My fellow hikers are amazed!
During this battle with cancer I have lost a bit of my hair, but my guess is that it will grow back. I also shed a lot of weight – 50 lbs since around August of last year. I did, though, have weight to lose.
I have had nausea at times with the chemo, but no vomiting, and should I have kept my part-time job, I would have only missed one or two days at most.
During my treatment I have never used any pain killers, not one aspirin, nothing. Personally, I subscribe to the medical motto: “First Do NO Harm”, and to me treating the body as a whole makes more sense than does violently attacking it with full blown chemotherapy, etc.
Cancer is nothing to take lightly, and I will continue to monitor my situation, eat right, rest, exercise, adn use the necessary supplements to best maintain my health.
The Get Well Center has a multi-pronged approach. Quality of life is key. Their method of targeted chemo, detoxification with supplements that boost the immune system, and a diet that starves the cancer cells while nourishing the healthy cells makes a lot of sense to me.
I would encourage anyone thinking of a gentler alternative to cancer treatment to visit the Get Well Center, and don’t hesitate to ask questions. I am sure that Mrs. Chung and her staff will do their best to help you, as they have me.
