Until January 20th 2018, Mr. Phillips tried many different types of treatments for his cancer including local hyperthermia, immunotherapy, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage, colonic irrigation and various medications including sodium selenite, deoxyglucose and high doses of vitamin C. The treatment she received initially arrested the growth of the prostate cancer, however according to new blood tests and an MRI he received in August 2018, the sad news was – the cancer continued to grow.

The cancer center in Bangkok suggested for Mr. Garry Phillips to return to have more of the same treatment, however after consulting with a local doctor and researching the different options of treatments, Mr. Phillips decided to travel to Beijing Puhua International Hospital. After a brief communication with our consultant, he immediately was admitted to our hospital on Sep 3rd 2018.
