About Big Bend Cares

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

This really happened: Within a month after learning the Domancic Method of Bioenergy Therapy (November, 2008), which includes a protocol for working with people afflicted with ANY Auto Immune Disease (AIDS), I was pleasantly surprised to learn that December 1st, 2008 was “World AIDS Day.”

Within a mile of my residence is the regional office of Big Bend Cares. Copied and pasted from their website: “Big Bend Cares provides education and comprehensive support to people infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS, serving Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Franklin, Taylor and Wakulla Counties.” Thinking that they would be VERY interested in this “new”, energy-based healing modality, I sent the following e-mail to “General”, as directed by their contact page.

Hello General,

My name is Rick Garzaniti. I’ve been in the medical profession for 41 years, including nearly 11 years as a paramedic at Tallahassee Memorial, 21 years as a Florida Licensed Massage Therapist, and 3 1/2 years as a Quantum-Touch Practitioner/Instructor.

I recently attended a 3-day seminar to learn The Domancic Method of Bioenergy Healing in Fort Myers, Florida. Zdenko Domancic (doh-MAHN-cheech) and his practitioners have healed more than 1 1/4 million people in his clinic in Slovenia (former Yugoslavia) for 30 years. People from all over the world go to his clinic when everyone else has given up on them. The clinic routinely treats 100-120 people PER DAY(!) and is booked 3-4 months in advance. He treats everyone for donations only.

In the Fort Myers seminar I learned how to treat conditions considered by the medical profession to be “incurable” – conditions such as AIDS, MS, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Lupus, gangrene, gout, Hepatitis C, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, autism…the list is extensive. In fact, I have over 50 pages of protocols for specific conditions.

I am planning to open a similar clinic here in Tallahassee. I got excited when I learned last night (11 o’clock news) that today was World AIDS Day. It was the motivation I needed to “jump start” me into action.

There is a 50-minute documentary called “Think About It” which begins with Mr. Domancic saying, “If we treat a patient, diagnosed with AIDS, with this method, the results will be visible in 3 to 4 days.” You can watch the entire documentary at
For more information, I’ve also attached the official Press Release from October, 2007 above.

I would like to work with people with AIDS using the Domancic Method and, hopefully, attain the same results that Mr. Domancic achieves “ 3 to 4 days.”

A bioenergy session lasts from 10-20 minutes and is done for 4 consecutive days, at the same time every day. I, like Mr. Domancic, will offer these sessions for donations only. Doing so will allow even those people who cannot afford health care or health insurance the opportunity to be healed.

If you know of anyone who might be willing to try this “new” healing technique, and possibly document the results (anonymously, of course), please reply to this e-mail or call me at 850-544-5994.

Thank you,

I was not only disappointed, but quite perplexed when my email generated absolutely NO response from Big Bend Cares! None. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I honestly thought they “cared” for the well-being of their clients scattered throughout eight (8) north Florida counties.

In the months that followed, I learned that the son of one of my Michigan high school classmates was in the hospital with AIDS. I told him about the Domancic Method of Bioenergy Therapy and that, because it’s an energy-based modality, I could do the therapy from right here in my living room. If his son agreed to trying it, I’d be happy to work with him. When my friend said that he couldn’t pay me (he worked in the auto industry which wasn’t doing so well in 2009), I told him, “That’s not a problem. I offer this therapy for donations only. My goal is to help people heal. If I was doing this for the money, I’d charge a fee.” His son was interested, and we began his first session the following Monday evening, continuing every day through Thursday evening. (See the complete story, including lab results, on my DM Healing Stories page).

Based upon the amazing results with my friend’s son, I once again reached out to Big Bend Cares to let them know that this therapy actually DID provide visible results “…in 3 to 4 days.” In this case, nearly miraculous results happened within 14 HOURS of his first session! I sent the following e-mail to Big Bend Cares:

Hello again, General,</>

I must admit I was a bit confused and disappointed when my letter introducing the Domancic Method of Bioenergy Therapy to you on 1 December 08 generated absolutely no response – not what I expected from an organization that claims to “care” about the well-being of AIDS patients.

Well, despite the total lack of local interest in this “new” therapy, it took me 4 months to find someone diagnosed with AIDS who was willing to “try anything at this point”. “Freddie” is the son of a couple from high school I graduated with. He had been in the hospital for 5 weeks with an unknown diagnosis. The doctors thought it was some sort of brain abnormality.

Following is the letter I posted to the Bioenergy blog this morning (for Domancic practitioners only).

Here’s an update on this client. Turns out he has AIDS (from a former girlfriend who was a heavy drug user), but his dad was not comfortable sharing that info with me before getting his son’s permission. He also has emphysema. The 4 sessions started on Monday evening and went through Thursday evening. He was discharged from the hospital and transferred to a nursing home that Monday morning.

I followed the automimmune and emphysema protocols as closely as I could, except I did NOT perform the foot manipulation and positive therapy (pt) to his whole body because pt is contraindicated with emphysema. I also added a minute to the head warming simply because his brain was the issue – the M.D.s said his MRI showed “too much light”. Instead of all the different colors normally seen in an MRI, his had lots of white areas.

His dad phoned me the next morning to say that “Freddie” (not his son’s real name) had been so weak while he was hospitalized that he did not have control of his bowels and bladder. He often “soiled himself”, but was too weak to do anything about it – someone else would have to clean him up and change his clothes.

When my friend and his wife went to visit Freddie the morning after his first Bioenergy Therapy, they said when Freddie woke up, he realized he had soiled himself during the night. He told himself, “Screw this!”, then got up out of bed, WALKED into the bathroom, CLEANED HIMSELF UP and CHANGED HIS OWN CLOTHES! His parents were VERY pleased with that. His dad told me that it MIGHT have been that Freddie’s medications were finally beginning to work, but that Freddie’s behavior on Tuesday morning was the absolute most dramatic improvement they had seen since his 5 week hospital stay.

After his 4th and last treatment, I asked Freddie if he was noticing any improvements. He said, “A little.” Then added, “My dad wants to talk to you.” His dad said that he heard Freddie saying that he noticed “a little” improvement during his 4 day session, but he wanted me to know that for MONTHS, he and his wife have had to help Freddie get in and out of bed. Thursday morning, the last day of Freddie’s therapy, his parents walked into the room in time to see Freddie walk from the bathroom to the bed, climb into bed, then scoot his hips back so he could sit up ON HIS OWN! By the way, he did all this while holding a cup of hot coffee without spilling a drop.

Freddie wasn’t even aware of how much better he was doing, but his parents sure noticed. Here are the letters I received this morning from both his mom and dad – the words in [brackets] are mine:

Hi Rick, I wanted to update [Freddie’s] condition for you. His improvement has been amazing!!! He had a doctor appointment yesterday and his doctor said that he had never seen anyone improve so much so fast. He expects that [Freddie] will be able to go home by Memorial Day.

When we got to the nursing home on Monday before his first session with you, we had to help him out of bed and into his wheel chair. He had been put on a soft diet because he couldn’t cut his own food. That first 20 minutes was very, very hard for him to handle. Just sitting in the chair for that long was a strain. The next morning he told us that he had dressed himself and even tied his shoes. Every day there was significant improvement. The dietician put him on a regular diet again because his shakes are gone. They were so severe he couldn’t feed himself.

Today is his 35th birthday and I really didn’t think we’d be celebrating it this year. But after his appointment yesterday his wife took him to the Moose [Lodge] (he’s a member and he really wanted to go there) for a birthday party. Family members who had seen him in the hospital were stunned when he got out of the wheel chair and walked to the bar for a drink (non-alcoholic of course!). And he cut and fed himself a steak dinner!

Thank you so much for your help. We are telling everyone about it. I’m sure the meds are doing their thing, but I’m also sure he wouldn’t be as improved as he is without your help. Please use his story if you’d like to help others.

Thanks again, Rick. We’ll keep you informed on his progress.

And the letter from Freddie’s dad:

“I had to say….I am Impressed. The doctor told [Freddie] and [his wife] yesterday that he has never seen so much improvement in such a short time. He was looking at him and grinning and saying this is phenomenal.
[His wife] asked him if is possible that the AIDS can go back into an HIV positive state. The Doctor seems to think that he could improve that much with what he has seen so far. He also said it could go to the opposite direction and he could have a relapse. His Immune system is the key. That is what you said you were working on.

“Thanks again, Rick. I really believe this Bio Energy Therapy worked for him. I can not give the medication that much credit. [Freddie] left the Doctor’s yesterday and joined us and many of my brothers and our family at the [Moose Lodge] where he ate a Steak dinner and a Taco dinner. Something he hasn’t done in a long time. He rarely finishes more than half of his dinner and he almost completely ate both!”

Me again. Four days of Bioenergy and Freddie goes from being in the hospital weak, malnourished, incontinent of bowel and bladder with severe muscle tremors and nearly dead to being able to walk, feed himself because his tremors stopped, and better able to control his incontinence. The fact that neither of his parents expected to be celebrating Freddie’s 35th birthday today is HUGELY rewarding for me.

And all this was accomplished on someone I’ve never met who lives on a different part of the planet. Once again, thank you, Mr. Domancic for this therapy.

So, once again, I ask if you know of anyone who might be willing to try this “new” healing technique, and possibly document the results (anonymously, of course), please reply to this e-mail, or call me at 850-544-5994.

Thank you,

I was shocked when, within MINUTES after hitting the “Send” button, I received the following response from Big Bend Cares:

“Rob Renzi <>
To 04/21/09 at 1:39 PM
Your e-mail went unanswered because your “therapy” cannot be paid for via Medicaid, Medicare or Ryan White so is of no use to our consumers. Please delete me from your e-mail list</>”

So, even though I mentioned, more than once, that I offer this therapy for donations only, in only ONE SENTENCE I learned that what Big Bend Cares about is its funding. In the second sentence I was literally BLOCKED from ever contacting them again!
