This letter is to give a recommendation to CTOAM and the
consultation service provided by
Rolland. Had I not happened upon an introduction to the services offered by CTOAM nearly one
don’t think I would be sitting here today.
To give you some background, I had been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. I was not given the
to have surgery, even though I was adamant about going this route. Instead, I was directed to a
oncologist. After three months of two types of drugs, which reduced my immune system to one
what it should be, I was being pushed into another three month program on a different drug.
At this stage, I was barely able to function, not sleeping more than two hours a night over
weeks. My better judgement told me to stop all allopathic procedures and give my body a rest –
give it time to regain some balance and find it’s own natural rhythm. During this period, I
alternatives and when these didn’t reduce the tumor (although they seemed to arrest the growth),
back to the chemo oncologist who then prescribed a drug that I took for five weeks. Alarmingly,
tumour progressed rapidly.
At this point, I approached CTOAM and engaged their services in monitoring the drug treatment
Alex found that I had been prescribed a drug that wasn’t even targeted to my type of cancer. He
found that the diagnosis was not complete (in view of tests that could have been done to render
exact treatment). My oncologist wasn’t concerned about any of this, other than to get me back on
chemo by intravenous program. She flippantly wrote in her report that "my window of time
passed" – a notation that both alarmed and put me into a depressive spin.
Alex Rolland was supportive through this traumatic period, offering advice on nutraceuticals,
antioxidants, foods, and other supplements, and supplied me with the peer-reviewed scientific
so I could feel comfortable knowing they [the nutraceuticals] would actually benefit me and work
synergistically, (and not interact negatively), with my treatments.
From CTOAM I learned about an expensive diagnostic tool, knowledge of which made me feel a lot
comfortable when my oncologist coincidentally proposed this test the following week. Alex also
having the new chemo dosage level lowered – something I never knew was possible with the medical
profession. That was done and I was able to tolerate the second chemo program with greater ease.
also made me more aware of clinical trials across the North American Continent – should this be
consideration in the future.
Throughout my treatment program, Alex Rolland monitored the lab results and doctors’ reports, and
advice on how I could increase my chances of recovery. He researched the drugs and treatment
I was prescribed, giving me more precise info on how they act on the cancer cells and what
there might be available to me.
He even researched and provided info on exercises geared to assist breast cancer patients. In
stage of treatment, friends and medical staff commented on how well I looked and said that I
the picture of someone having cancer.’ Believe me, this was not due to the chemo treatment I was
The knowledge base, expertise, and attention to detail that CTOAM extended to me underscores
professional services. Not only was I better informed and able to make more effective decisions
regarding the treatment options, I truly felt Alex’s genuine concern for rebuilding his clients
and improving their quality of life. There is no dollar value that you can put on the strength
support and the courage it gives one to go forward in life.
