The Lorenzo’s Oil Factor, From Miracle to Tragedy to Miracle

By Marjorie Rothstein

In a recent interview with the founder of Nutritional Oncology Research Institute, Mark Simon, CN, the story of Lorenzo’s Oil came to mind.

This award winning best original screenplay, starring Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon (nominated for best actress), was a 1992 drama film directed by George Miller.

“Failing to find a doctor capable of treating their young son Lorenzo’s rare disease, Augusto and Michaela Odone sought their own cure. They set out on a mission to find a treatment to save their child. In their quest, the Odones clashed with doctors, scientists, and support groups, who were skeptical that anything could be done about Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), much less by laypeople. But they persisted, setting up camp in medical libraries, reviewing animal experiments, badgering researchers, questioning top doctors all over the world, and even organizing an international symposium about the disease. ” *

In his own words, here is Mark Simon’s story:

MR: Please share with us your amazing story that led you to find this revolutionary new non-toxic chemotherapy treatment that is fast becoming a highly effective alternative to conventional medicine practices for which the side effects may be damaging. How did it all begin for you?

MS-It is amazing how after living over 50 years on this earth, I have learned that life brings a magnitude of miracles and tragedies. The first miracle was the birth of our twins who entered this world only 27 weeks old and less than two and a half pounds. Their survival and flourishing under this adverse situation was a great miracle for our family.

The greatest shock and horror of our lives began in June 2004. The tragedy was my wife’s diagnosis of stage III breast cancer, when our children were only two years old. This was the beginning of the greatest tribulation in my life, and the most traumatic event for my beloved wife, Robin, her family, friends and our children. As a scientist, this ignited my fervent quest to discover a cure, which was in another area of research, within a field that I knew little about. While playing all the roles at once, from father to mother to breadwinner and nurse, in the words of Thomas Paine, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”

MRWhat makes your story so compelling is that you have taken on this challenging feat because you realized that all the pain and suffering you experienced with your beloved wife had a purpose. Please tell us more about the process.

M.S.-My story shares the unfolding of a remarkable discovery that will bring forth some meaning to the catastrophic loss of my wife and the suffering of all with whom she touched in her life. My quest began immediately to find a cure, but it was too late and my wife passed away after a four-year struggle through ineffective and debilitating treatments.

My research lead me to the second miracle, a remarkable discovery that the mineral selenium was able to destroy cancer cells without harming normal cells and without any negative side effects. This led to clinical case studies and a design of a simple and low cost treatment protocol that appears to be universally effective for every form of cancer.

Thus, the creation of The Nutritional Oncology Research Institute was established, through the development of a clinically evaluated revolutionary cancer treatment based on selenium***, vitamin K3 and a special diet that restricts the amino acid methionine. Methionine is found in animal products and has been associated with strengthening the cancer cells.** On a strict vegan diet with the selenium protocol, the cancer cells weaken and die off. The treatment is free from adverse side effects and has been demonstrated to be universally effective for all forms of cancer. The complete protocol is fully supported by solid scientific evidence and clinical data.

MRIn addition, you discovered your own personal life mission along the way. Can you share more about this?

It is my determination that this discovery will help millions so they will not suffer from the unnecessary consequences of cancer or from the outdated treatments that conventional medicine has to offer. Hopefully this will occur within my lifetime and yours.
