Cancer Care Program Testimonials
Dear Dr. DeNault and Staff
In April 2011 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma in my tonsil that had metastasized
into my lymph system. After various tests, our family doctor booked me an appointment with a surgeon. It
felt like a death sentence. My immediate reaction was to start planning my will, finances, funeral plans,
etc. etc. Fortunately for me my husband, Simon, gave me a wake-up call: "Why don't you start planning on
how you can live, instead?", he wisely advised.
For years we had followed the growing interest in the merits of high volume Vitamin C intravenous therapy
for cancer treatment as advocated by Dr. Linus Pauling (Two time Nobel Laureate) and Dr. Ewan Cameron
(a Scottish doctor). In seeking a means to have this treatment we were led to the Optimum Wellness Clinic,
and we set up an appointment with you. After consultation I took your advice and immediately began taking
the vitamins and minerals you recommended and commenced high volume Vitamin C intravenous treatments
(3 times weekly for a total of 20 treatments)
A few weeks after I began Vitamin C therapy, I met with the surgeon. His recommendation was frightening -
15 hours of surgery followed by radiation treatments. It would mean that I would be disfigured for life.
He kindly explained to us that we were in shock and suggested we get a second opinion at the Cross
Dr. Parliament at the Cross Cancer Institute gave me a second option - 30 radiation and 7 chemotherapy
treatments. He explained if any cancer remained after that follow-up surgery would be less invasive. I chose
It's now two years since my last chemo and radiation treatment. On August 23, 2013 my doctor told me the results
of my last PT scan. CANCER FREE! He confirmed this with a physical examination, reporting that while there were some
signs of the radiation treatment there were NO signs of the cancer.
Our sincere heartfelt thanks to you and your staff for your contribution to this result. Both my husband, Simon, and I
are convinced that the Vitamin C intravenous therapy treatments I had at your clinic STOPPED the cancer from
migrating further into my lymph system before conventional treatment could begin. This timely therapy together
with energy healing practices clearly made the difference. We have and will continue to highly recommend your
clinic to anyone else who may find themselves facing this or a similar situation.

When my mom was diagnosed with cancer she decided that conventional treatment wasn't for her so I
took her to one of the top Integrative Cancer Clinics in the USA. After she was finished her treatments
there, I was pleased to discover that we could continue with many of the same therapies [IV’s, injections,
supplements] that we received in Reno at the Optimal Wellness Clinic in Edmonton. Dr. DeNault and his staff
provided my mom with excellent care and not only helped boost her immune system but boosted her spirits as
well. I'm very grateful and appreciative for all the great care that they provided for my mom. I continue
to visit the clinic as well for IV treatments for heavy metal toxicity. I highly recommend the Optimal
Wellness Clinic for those persons seeking alternative treatments for creating health in their bodies.
Thank you to Dr. DeNault and his wonderful staff for the care they gave me through my cancer treatments.
I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer August 2012 and started the cancer care program after my first surgery.
Dr. DeNault's recommendations throughout my surgeries and cancer treatments helped me heal quicker with little
scarring, and I recovered from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation faster. He worked directly with me while taking
my conventional treatments into account. We made a plan that would work with my medication and if there was any risk
of interference he made suggestions, a winning combination in my mind. I have continued on with his recommended
Only time will tell if everything worked but so far I am very happy with the results after my one year checkup. I
received a thumbs up. In fact, at my one year checkup I had both my oncologist and nurse double check which side had been
the surgery site.
I highly recommend Optimum Wellness Clinic and the cancer care program. The knowledge, care and encouragement that once receives
from Dr. DeNault and his staff was a tremendous help in keeping a positive attitude throughout my treatments.
Thanks for everything,

"My first appointment with Dr. DeNault was both
comforting and reassuring. Here is a man brimming with competence and compassion
-two characteristics that were so important to me as I faced chemotherapy and
radiation and was desperate to know what to do next.
Timely information was readily available. I couldn't
have asked for a better support than what I've experienced at the Optimum
Wellness Clinic. My program of supplements and intravenous vitamin C helped
speed my recovery - much to the delight of my oncologist, who has now given me a
clean bill of health. If you have a health challenge, you're in great hands with
the professionals at the Optimum Wellness Clinic!"

"I was referred to the Optimum Wellness Clinic by a
friend from St. AIbert who was undergoing cancer treatment. She was receiving
Vitamin C IV as well as various naturopathic pills.
Currently, I am on chemo as well as receiving Vitamin
C IV and naturopathic pills recommended by Dr. DeNault suitable for my
situation. I feel very strongly that the naturopathic treatments in conjunction
with the chemo is keeping my cancer stable. My blood work has always been good
and is done every three weeks, as well as the scans that I receive every three
months have also been stable for over a year.
I have learned much from his fabulous clinic, joyous
staff, as well as the intereaction with fellow patients also receiving
treatments there. Dr. DeNault's knowledge as a Naturopathic Doctor as well as
his knowledge of pharmaceutical drugs as a Pharmacist is excellent."

"I have had thyroid cancer twice and then lymph node cancer, and then recently
another suspicious thyroid CT scan. But I had to wait for a another biopsy so in
the mean time I decided to try another kind of medicine. After trying many other
alternative health practitioners (over ten!!), I was relieved to find Dr. DeNault,
a Naturopathic doctor and a pharmacist who knows and practices cutting edge natural
medicine and also understands the appropriate use of allopathic care. I completed
a series of I.V. Vitamin C treatments, mistletoe injections, along with supplements
tailored to my specific cancer and digestive afflictions. After months of waiting
for the Alberta Health Care system to arrange for my biopsy, I finally had the procedure.
The results - healthy tissue!! I am currently in remission for lymph/thyroid cancer,
colitis and chronic yeast infections, and enjoying each day to the fullest!!"

"I was referred to Dr. DeNault by another doctor, for the treatments he does
with cancer. I started treatments with him in May 2009 and our goal was building
my body to a healthy state. Since taking I.V. Vitamin C, mistletoe therapy and special
natural supplements, my chemo treatments were made easier on me. I seem to not get
any real side effects from the chemo. My pathology tests came back with good results
and my blood work is now perfect. I found myself in good hands there, with Dr. DeNault's
knowledge as a Naturopath and also his knowledge of pharmaceutical and chemo drugs
as a pharmacist. His staff are also very supportive and caring."

"Last November I started feeling extremely tired, I could hardly get up off
the couch to do anything. Later I found out my cancer had returned. I went to Dr.
DeNault and started taking I.V. Vitamin C, special supplements and doing pH monitoring.
Soon after I started mistletoe therapy. Two weeks after I started therapy with Dr.
DeNault I started feeling a lot better and I started getting my energy back. Also
during this time, I went through my mom's illness and death. Because of the
treatments from Dr. DeNault I was feeling better and I was able to deal with this
very stressful time in my life. The Love and Care everyone at the clinic has shown
me has been extraordinary. I highly recommend Dr. DeNault for help in dealing with
cancer, feeling better and hopefully my cancer will soon be completely gone. His
staff are kind, loving, encouraging and supportive. I am very grateful that Dr.
DeNault was recommended to me, he has made a huge difference!"

"I have been healthy most of my life, but one morning I woke up with excruciating
pain in my lower abdomen and had my husband drive me to the hospital. At first it
was thought I would require emergency surgery for appendicitis but after x-rays
and an ultrasound the doctors found a tumour in my ovary which was leaking fluids
internally and spreading into my blood stream. They said this was the source of
the pain and discomfort, which had become the worst pain I had ever felt before.
The surgery was successful. They removed a tumour the size of a grapefruit and after
my recovery more tests were done including a gastroscopy and a biopsy. Four days
later my family and I were thrown into the greatest battle of our lives. The diagnosis
was primary stomach cancer with secondary cancer in my ovary. So what now? Well
I was referred to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton but had to wait for an
appointment. While I was waiting, I searched for options to the anticipated regular
recommended treatments. When my visit finally arrived, I listened to an unassuming
doctor with the bedside manner of an executioner as he proceeded to use a white
board and red marker to illustrate as he saw it, my death sentence: “No need for
any surgery, you are too far gone! There is no feasible help for your condition
at this stage of disease”. “My only recommendation; with chemo you have 8 to 10
months, and without chemo 3 to 5 months, tops!!” How charming, Bless his heart!!
My response - Thanks but no thanks!!
Luckily while waiting for the Cross’s appointment,
I had researched and found on the Internet Natural Centers who deal with cancer,
both here in Alberta and the USA. I settled on a centre in Santa Barbara. While
I was there I underwent and intense regimen of intravenous vitamin C treatments,
hyperbaric oxygen treatments, acupuncture, daily saunas, massage and other natural
treatments. The results of my PET scan upon leaving there showed no evidence of
any live cells anywhere. I returned with one request from my doctor there and that
was that I continue with a naturopathic center in Edmonton.
Upon recommendation, I chose Dr. DeNault at the Optimum Wellness Naturopathic Medical Clinic here in
Edmonton where I have since been receiving weekly intravenous vitamin C treatments,
mistletoe therapy, and special natural supplements. It is such a blessing to be
a patient of his. The atmosphere at the clinic is of warmth, caring, and encouragement
and the entire staff interacts with such understanding and compassion. Each visit
is like a family reunion as frequent bursts of laughter fill the air. This is definitely
a place where life is felt.
I can testify that a Naturopath is absolutely a positive
direction for anyone with cancer or any such disease. It is so comforting in knowing
there is such treatments available with no side effects for a disease as ruthless
as cancer and a real blessing we can get these treatments right here in Edmonton!!

"Approximately two years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. The prognosis looked
bleak with little promise. At that time I had a major decision to make: 1) take
the usual treatments, chemotherapy and radiation 2) take alternative treatments,
or 3) combine the two. As the usual treatments chemotherapy and radiation did NOT
offer much promise I decided on the third option. My brother recommended to me Dr.
DeNault, a naturopathic doctor here in Edmonton, which he has known and has been
treated by for some time for heart disease.
I had a consultation with Dr. DeNault and felt this was the way to proceed. Upon
his recommendation I went on a high-dose I.V. vitamin C and mistletoe program along
with additional supplements. I did this in conjunction with the usual treatments
of chemotherapy and radiation. His treatments besides helping me fight my cancer,
also helped me in dealing with the side effects of the usual treatments.
It has been over a year that I have been on this program. I don't know what the
future holds, but I sincerely feel, that if I wasn't on Dr. DeNault's program I
would not be here to write this today."

"I have a very important story to tell. It all started with a terrible cancer
diagnosis. Devastation took over our lives. We were referred to an oncologist at
the Cross Cancer Institution to begin exploring our options for treatment. We were
greeted with a solemn outlook. It became very clear that I had a huge battle on
my hands, I was to fight for my life. We gave the Cross our complete trust. The
radiologist suggested radiation in an attempt to shrink or stop the growth of this
huge tumor embedded in my thigh muscle.
Panicked and desperate we accepted. After twenty five rounds of radiation over five
weeks we were told it did NOT work. Worst yet, the tumor had ballooned to over three
times the original size. Amputation of my leg was the only way to save me. Three
months after that procedure, we learned that the cancer had spread to my lungs.
I was lucky however, the surgeon was able to operate and remove the lesions. The
operation was successful, three lesions were extracted. The oncologists then wanted
me to start chemotherapy as soon as possible. My once healthy body was starting
to feel very weak from the operations and also from the stress involved in not knowing
if I was going to live or die. My husband and I realized that we had to take charge
and begin to explore ways to rebuild my strength both physically and psychologically.
We chose to see a Naturopathic doctor.
Our research brought us to the Optimum Wellness Naturopathic Medical Clinic here
in Edmonton. We met with Dr. DeNault and my road to recovery began with a vengeance.
During our first visit, Dr. DeNault talked to us about the importance of rebuilding
and protecting my immune system, and he went on to explain why. We were immediately
impressed with his optimistic approach as to how we were going to help heal my body.
For once since this nightmare began we felt hope. Months of regular and pleasant
visits for I.V. treatments, mistletoe therapy, special supplements, introduction
on pH monitoring, and colon hydrotherapy. Advice on lifestyle and dietary changes
were also included. Six months later and for the first time in two years, my oncologist
declared that the cancer was in remission. Success! I continue to visit Dr. DeNault
and the rest of his wonderful team. I feel extremely fortunate that God has put
these extraordinary people in my path of life. My wish is to be able to share "them"
with all cancer patients. I am convinced that conventional and alternative medicine
can work together to improve the odds against this awful disease."

"I was diagnosed with small cell (inoperable) lung carcinoma. I refused conventional
medicine as I wanted quality life. Looking for other alternatives, I came across
Dr. DeNault’s clinic, the Optimum Wellness Naturopathic Medical Clinic. I have been
taking I.V. Vitamin C therapy, mistletoe therapy and special supplements, along
with diet changes. I had blood work done with Dr. DeNault and my family doctor,
and the results were fine. Dr. DeNault is a very knowledgeable and caring practitioner.
The staff is also very supportive and caring. The patients you meet encourage one
another and also learn from one another."
L.F., Edmonton, AB
"When I first went to see Dr. DeNault I was having trouble walking and mentally
I was struggling to stay alive. With our first meeting I knew that I had found new
hope for improving my health. Dr. DeNault is a very knowledgeable, supportive and
caring health care practitioner. I began I.V. Vitamin C treatments, mistletoe therapy
and supplements immediately. I spent the summer of 2008 getting stronger everyday
and by the end of August my blood work to my oncologist's surprise was in the
healthy range and there was no hint of liver issues. He said I do not know what
you are doing besides coming to the Cross but keep it up. Also, I found the people
in Dr. DeNault's clinic the best "support group" for promoting healing.
Everyone is positive and the patients are encouraging and hopeful for one another."
