No Chemotherapy to cancer patients: doctor suspended

Giuseppe Nacci will not be allowed to practise medicine for 4 months. “The Order of Doctors does not accept my course of treatment”

By Pietro Comelli

Suspended from practising medicine for 4 months. This is the disciplinary sanction decided by the Order of Doctors of Trieste against doctor Giuseppe Nacci, born in Trieste. The sanction was signed by outgoing president Mauro Melato and became effective on 20th December last after the decision taken by the Commissione Centrale per gli Esercenti e le Professioni Sanitarie (Central Commission for Tradespeople and Health Professions) in Rome, which had reduced the sanction after Dr Nacci’s appeal. In fact, a suspension of 6 months – the most severe sanction before striking off – had originally been requested in 2005. Dr Nacci can now appeal to the Italian Supreme Court. His appeal will not, however, avoid his being suspended until 21st April.

Dr Nacci’s position is very delicate: as a matter of fact the Order of Doctors disputes his non-conventional medical treatments, which are considered incorrect. These treatments are given to cancer patients who, coming especially from outside Trieste, turn to the medical practice Fisiosan, at number 21 of Via Genova. This brings back the most sensational “Di Bella’s case”, as Dr Nacci himself maintains that “he treats cancers by stimulating the immune response, thus avoiding Chemotherapy”. His metabolic therapy uses vitamins and makes patients follow a correct diet. Proposing this kind of therapy, Dr Nacci made “Mille Piante per guarire dal Cancro senza Chemio” available on the Internet. The essay was also translated into English in the USA with the title “Thousand Plants against Cancer without Chemo-Therapy” http://www.erbeofficinali.org/dati/nacci/studi/Thousand%20Plants%20against%20Cancer%20without%20Chemo-October%202008.pdfhttp://www.mednat.org/cancro/nacci_english.pdf

and published on several American Web sites, such as that of the National Health Federation. Dr Nacci also published the book “Diventa Medico di Te Stesso” (“Become your own doctor”), receiving some prices and awards in recognition of his literary activity, including the “Sigillo Trecentesco” (“Fourteenth-Century Seal”) from the city of Trieste. The official award took place in the Council Hall in November 2007, but was criticised by the Order of Doctors of Trieste, which informed the then Minister of Health Livia Turco, highlighting the fact that disciplinary proceedings were already hanging over the doctor, who had already been suspended for two months. After one year, the procedure has taken its course and Dr Nacci has been suspended again. But he does not give in. “I am worried about the patients I am treating. What will happen to them now? Until 21st April I will not be allowed to treat them”, says the Italian medical doctor. During the last few days he sent a letter to his patients in order to inform them: “Because of the sanction imposed, I am forced to leave you”. The letter sent to the patients is accompanied by the sentence of the Italian Supreme Court regarding the principle of doctors’ freedom in choosing the medical treatment. The 38 patients Dr Nacci is referring to include two patients suffering from brain tumour, ten from breast cancer, three from lung cancer… According to Dr Nacci, these cases have been in therapy for many years and were at risk to develop a metastasis and now do not show recidivism or a residual lesion. Dr Nacci’s patients come above all from North East Italy, but also from Naples, Rome and Messina. In addition to the letter informing them about the suspension, Dr Nacci sent to all of them another letter to be sent to the Court for the patients’ rights of Trieste. This is an extreme attempt to defend himself by asking for help from the patients who gave him a written “informed consensus” to carry out his therapy. A kind of confidence agreement between doctor and patient.

This is highly criticised by the Order of Doctors of Trieste, which does not want to issue any comment but only confirms that the doctor was suspended, as shown by the decision notification sent to all relevant institutions and even displayed at some chemists’. But Dr Nacci replies: “They do not accept my course of treatment and my position, but when the suspension ends I am going to resume my activity. These 38 cases are only a tenth of my patients, who then generally ask their own GPs to follow them. Whereas I had a stable relation with a small part, i.e. these 38 cases. There is not only chemotherapy”.

aids and virgin coconut

AIDS Victim Tells of Healing Virtues
of Coconut Oil

In coming out of the closet to tell his story Tony, 38, lends hope to thousands of AIDS sufferers worldwide. “You don’t know how hard it is for one to have an illness that others find repulsive…I had wanted to shut myself inside my room and just wait for my time to die,” Tony told symposium participants.

Tony was a guest speaker at a symposium titled “Why Coconut Cures”, held in Manila, Philippines May14, 2005. The symposium was headed by Dr. Bruce Fife, who was also the keynote speaker. Other participants included cardiologist Conrado Dayrit, dermatologist Vermen Verallo-Rowell, biochemist Fabian Dayrit, and Senator Jamby Madrigal.

Tony’s testimony, along with those of others who had experienced dramatic recoveries from various ailments, provided first-hand accounts of the use of coconut oil in healing chronic health problems described by symposium participants.

Beneath the sunglasses that he wore his eyes were moist, not in self-pity but in triumph. Covered with a cap and long sleeves, hides a body scarred by a disease Tony contracted while working in the Middle East in the 1990s. Coming home in 2002, Tony was devastated to learn that he was infected by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). As the disease progressed, the pain he endured came not only from the infections ravaging his body but from the shame the disease had brought him. He felt like giving up.

Drugs, which he could barely afford, could not deliver him from the dreaded virus and the other infections that were slowly draining away his life. His body was covered with fungal infections, and oozing sores accompanied by a chronic pneumonia infection that caused a persistent cough. He knew he was losing the battle as each day symptoms grew worse and he found it increasingly more difficult to function and was completely incapable of working.

Unable to afford medication he sought help from the Department of Health. He was referred to Dr. Conrado Dayrit, the author of the first clinical study on the healing effects of coconut oil on HIV infected patients, which was conducted at the San Lazaro hospital in the Philippines. By this time Tony was diagnosed with full blown AIDS and had little hope for recovery.

Dr. Dayrit secured a steady supply of coconut oil for Tony’s use, free of charge. He was instructed to apply the oil to his skin two to three times a day and consume six tablespoonfuls daily without fail.

The program worked miracles. Each time Tony went to the hospital for his periodic blood tests his viral load decreased. Tony said that when he told hospital doctors what he was taking, they could not believe that a simple dietary oil was killing the virus better than all the modern drugs of medical science.

Just nine months after his initial visit with Dr. Dayrit, Tony appeared before the audience at the symposium for all to witness his remarkable recovery. The infections that once racked his body were gone. Even HIV was no longer detectable. What used to be skin sores all over his body were now just fading scars. His life energy had been restored enough for him to give an eloquent testimony of how something as simple and natural as coconut oil could halt this deadly disease.

Evidence for coconut oil’s effect on HIV was first discovered back in the 1980s when researchers learned that medium chain fatty acids—the kind found in coconut oil—possessed powerful antiviral properties capable of destroying the AIDS virus. Since then numerous anecdotal accounts of HIV patients using coconut and coconut oil to overcome their condition circulated in the AIDS community. Even basketball legend Magic Johnson who retired from the NBA because he was HIV positive is reportedly credited with using coconut on his road to recovery.

The first clinical study using coconut on HIV patients was reported by Conrado Dayrit in 1999. In this study HIV infected individuals were give 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil daily. No other treatment was used. Six months later 60% of the participants showed noticeable improvement

This was the first study to demonstrate that coconut oil does have an antiviral effect in vivo and could be used to treat HIV infected individuals. Dr. Dayrit is now heading a larger study in Africa using coconut oil in the treatment of HIV.

The symposium “Why Coconut Cures” was based on Dr. Bruce Fife’s recently published book Coconut Cures. Philippine president Macapagal-Arroyo recognized Dr. Fife’s relentless advocacy in educating people about the healing properties of coconut.

Philippine president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo with Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap acknowledges the efforts of author Bruce Fife (with wife Leslie) in promoting the health benefits of coconut. Dr. Fife presented president Macapagal-Arroyo a copy of his new book Coconut Cures.

The Philippine Department of Agriculture will publish the Philippine edition of Coconut Cures, which is scheduled for release in that country August 2005.

Coconut Cures is currently available at most health food stores in the US. It is also available directly from the publisher at http://www.piccadillybooks .com or from http://www.amazon.com. ■
