Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski's successful cancer cure?

This is not energy healing, but an alternative medical approach to treating cancer that seems to get better results than standard treatment. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski and his son and colleague, Dr. Gregory Burzynski, are interviewed by Dr. Mercola:

And now see the the movie on Dr. Burzynski's struggles with the Texas Medical Board, the FDA and the American Cancer Society, who, according to the film maker, tried to shut him down and bankrupt and jail him, while at the same time the U.S. government was trying to patent his discoveries:

And here is a commentary on the movie by Jennifer Hawke, a "mama and an MD".

And now a website with testimonials: On the right hand side you will see a list of names and cancers, and as you click on each name, a testimonial will come up.

Update, Dec. 24: I've received some criticism for this post from people who pointed out to me that what Dr. Burzynski does is not in any way related to energy healing, the topic of this blog. People have also told me that Dr. Burzynski is highly controversial and that the movie is little more than an "infomercial" for his clinic. I have no way of evaluating the correctness of either Dr. Burzynski's position or the criticisms leveled against him. My position on the matter is that people should have a right to choose their own treatment, and that no government or agency should step in to deprive them of this right by making sure that only orthodox treatments (some of which have proven to be dismal failures) are available to them.
