Below is a copy and paste of
the broadcast from channel nine, of the Perth based cancer cure. This went to
air on the 9/8/04 at 6:30:pm Australain time. The website is below for anybody
to wishes to view the video clip.
To day is the 13/8/04, tonight
is will be the fifth night in a row that this cancer cure and treatment has been
aired on national television.
Over a period of 30 years, highly qualified
Perth-based surgeon Dr John Holt has had some startling successes with a
radio-wave therapy treatment for cancer patients.
However, this radical
treatment has polarised the medical community in Australia. His supporters say
he's been vilified, while his detractors point out there is no scientific basis
for his claims.
Elvina Johnson had a lot of living to do when she was
told she had an aggressive form of bone cancer. At 18, doctors discovered she
had a "galaxy of tumours". She lost her leg and underwent intensive chemo
treatment to try and stop it spreading. Her cancer was so severe that she
relapsed soon after.
"It was through both of my lungs and by that stage
it was pretty terminal," she told Ray Martin.
Elvina was desperate. Quite
by chance she heard about a cancer specialist with a highly controversial

years later and probably feeling better than ever, so I have had a rebirth," she
Dr Holt's controversial treatment works, in layperson's terms, by
giving the patient an injection of a glucose-blocking agent. He then shines
"radio waves" into the body at a specific frequency. Dr Holt doesn't guarantee
it will cure every cancer, but it's not expensive and there's no quackery about
Born in Bristol 80 years ago and a member of the Royal Colleges, Dr
Holt has 26 medical letters after his name. For more than a decade he was in
charge of Western Australia's main cancer institute, until the late '70s, when
he was blacklisted by his medical colleagues and politicians.
doctors took up such an action initially, they said the treatment was fake and
useless," said former WA Premier John Tonkin. But Tonkin added, "There is no
doubt whatsoever in my mind that this is the most advanced form of cancer
treatment in the world today."
The polarisation of the medical and
scientific community in Perth over Dr Holt's treatment has been evident since
"It is an unproven form of cancer treatment and it's not
part of the armoury of orthodox ways of treating cancer in Australia," said
Clive Deverill, the former boss of WA's Cancer Council. "Equally, there are
legions of patients who have been down that track who can't say anything about
their position because they're dead."
While the medical community
continues to argue the merits of Dr Holt's unorthodox measures, the families of
his successes feel they owe everything to this gentle man.
brain tumours and a tumour on her spine, Sophia Rosa was sent by pre-eminent
brain surgeon Dr Charlie Teo for the radical treatment. Two years later, the
only sign Sophia had cancer are the side-effects from the massive doses of
chemotherapy given in Sydney.
"Sometimes I think maybe Sophia's reason
for getting sick was so people would know about Doctor Holt," said Louisa Raso,
