Encouragement, Correction and Rebuke

Let me introduce you to Honzik, a drowned baby living in the Czech Republic. In the video below you can see Honzik storming and beginning to develop the backwards C-Shape that Robert also developed and suffered with for 27+ days. Honzik’s family found Robert’s story and reached out to us. We provided them with the […]

Short Cycle HBOT

Following is the body of a letter sent to Dr. Harch describing our experience with ‘short cycle’ HBOT and its effect on stem cell therapy. There are open questions about the therapeutic benefit from higher numbers of stem cells but the raw numbers are interesting. I have edited the original letter for clarity and brevity. […]

The Kitchen Sink

I will answer this below but it is important to know that we agreed, early on, that we were going to throw “everything and the kitchen sink” at healing his brain injury and, hopefully, argue later about what made the biggest […]

There is no hope without Jesus Christ. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. – 1 Cor 1:18 God made Robert’s body and God has the power to restore it. Whether he uses Dr. Harch and HBOT, MNRI […]

Allopathic Drugs

While we were in the hospital Robert was treated with multiple allopathic drugs. Many were started and stopped in an attempt to find something to reduce his neural storming and hyper-toned (stiff) muscle condition. Some, like Keppra, were given as a prophylactic (just in case). Robert left the hospital on 13 different prescriptions. Some of […]
