Scam Alert: Beware of the Philippine Protocol that is being offered at the Cytoluminator Clinic in Cebu, Philippines.
I have heard from various sources (including former patients and family members of former patients) that the Cytoluminator Clinic located in Cebu, Philippines is a scam. Patients are being recruited by a woman named Nadine Napolitano and her organization called Jesicha’s Hope which appears to generate its income by obtaining new patients for the clinic. The fee for the therapy is $35,000 of which $5,000 goes directly to Jesicha’s Hope as a finders fee. Cytoluminator is not an actual clinic as all treatments take place in a townhouse over a two week period. Those who have had the treatments are told that they are cured, or their bodies are in the process of healing from the cancer, but that it will take at least 6 months for the treatments to fully take effect. They are then sent home only to find that their situation continues to worsen. One gentleman who went to the Philippines in early 2016 writes. “Of my 18 personal contacts who received treatment in Cebu, Philippines, all 18 still have cancer and 5 of those 18 have passed on since March of 2016.”
I also received a message from Terry Henderson, who is the wife of alternative cancer author, Bill Henderson. Bill went to the clinic in in the spring of 2016 to receive treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He was also told that he was cancer free before leaving the Philippines two weeks later, but follow up appointments confirmed that was not true for him either. He continued to seek out alternative treatments and passed away on July 4, 2016 following an adverse reaction to a blood transfusion. His wife said this about Bill’s treatment at the clinic. “It was not a very good experience. Many people passed, including Bill. We didn’t like it!”
My research uncovered several other people who have died since being treated and I have also been contacted by a few more people who wish they could have their $35,000 back to use towards true healing therapies at reputable alternative health clinics (all of them were still battling cancer). This scam is very well organized and the actors are well rehearsed at applying their salesperson techniques in order to recruit more patients. On the surface this clinic may appear to be legitimate, but further research by you should reveal that it is not.
The clinic claims to have an 85% + success rate with all cancers (even the most terminal cases), but when asked to provide testimonials from actual individuals with documented disease and subsequent healing they are not able to provide this information but will send you a few patient scans without many details and links to a couple of Youtube videos that were made by the participants immediately after receiving treatments (while they are still at the clinic!). The people in the videos have just been told that they are cancer free and appear to be feeling good and are excited to share this positive news. But as Ryan explains in the podcast interview linked below, he believes that he was given steroids while at the Philippines and they will make a person feel more energetic and euphoric. Steroids will also stimulate the appetite and provide a general sense of well-being, but Ryan says that these positive feelings for him wore off very soon after arriving back home. No one is able to provide further updates relating to the individuals in the videos, and without that type of followup these videos do not provide sufficient evidence that a person has been healed from cancer for the long term.
This clinic has been open for several years and has treated an average of 6 individuals per month. With an 85% cure rate they should be able to provide many meaningful testimonials of long-term healing, the question to ask is where are all these survivors?
