As a practionerr of IPT and having used the modality for close to 7 years I still wonder as to why the mainstream has not seen the utility of this procedure. We have seen countles patients respond to this modality and have received the benefit of reduce toxicity and reduction in their cancers. The science of cancer physiology clearly make this the best choice. Support for Elka Best and Best Answer for. cancer should be of highest priority for those treating cancer and those suffering from it

Dealing with cancer outside mainstream medicine is a lonely and overwhelming task. The internet provides mountains of information, but how do you know which therapies are legitimate, or which are the right ones for you? Having someone like Annie at Best Answer for Cancer to talk with can mean the difference between floundering around for years trying various treatments and targeting effective treatments quickly. Annie helped me decide that IPT was the right treatment for me, and helped me in my choice of IPT doctors. She also was very helpful when it came to the nuts and bolts of alternative cancer treatment, such as how to submit your bills to insurance companies. I found her advice to be incredibly helpful and time and money-saving. Thank you, Annie!

I got involved with this organization three years ago and they are the best resource for IPT physicians in the breast cancer support services. Annie knows first hand the life saving alternative therapy that these brilliant physicians do around the globe. She has visited many of the clinics and has met all the cancer doctors. The best part is she gives you her expertise and referrals and is not paid a commission for placing you at a particular cancer clinic. You get the best referral. Low dose chemo is the best answer to cancer and IPT is the way to administer it. I see it as when you child had an ear infection they didn't give ceclor they gave the lowest dosage of amoxicillin to cure the ear infection. Chronic ear infection kept needing higher doses and they saved the big uns ceclor for last. If the started with ceclor first then they had nothing left when a ear infection came back. Cancer is a chronic disease and only a death sentence when you do full chemo and radiation and then when they say they can do no more patients seek alternative. Now Americans are getting smart and looking at doing an integrative approach with alternative therapies first low dose IPT second and getting full remission on many cases. We are blessed to have Annie and Best Answer for Cancer to spread the good news.

After learning of my stage three breast cancer, I went in search of a treatment were the cure wouldn't kill me. I wanted to thrive not just survive. I found that treatment in IPT. It's not the same course of treatment every other patient would be given. Treatment was tailored to my cancer, my reaction to chemotherapy drugs, and stressed the importance of my diet and supplements. My quality of life during treatment and the results of that treatment "wowed" the oncologist and surgeon on my health care team. Cancer treatment should not make you sicker, it should get you healthier. IPT does that.

Best Answer for Cancer provides invaluable information to persons who have been diagnosed with Cancer, or who have friends or family with a diagnosis. There are Alternative options that are not well known by the general public, if they are known at all. To have a resource that can identify these options for you, even assist you in locating and rating providers of such options, is just a wonderful, comforting, empowering benefit in an environment that is overwhelmingly difficult, rigid and laced with little hope.

I am a volunteer as well as a member of the General Advisory Board of Best Answer for Cancer Foundation. The Foundation is very focused on raising awareness around therapies that provide gentle yet effective cancer care. They believe in an integrative, whole-being approach and they help cancer patients discover the ‘dis-eases’ in their lives so that they can heal all the aspects that contributed to the cancer. I’m impressed with them that they don’t try to sell anyone on their ideas/solutions; they simply share information so that the patient can make an informed choice. Best Answer for Cancer Foundation also searches out medical providers of these integrative therapies: the physicians are vetted by a Medical Advisory Board and then listed on a website for patients to find. Again, they do not make referrals but just provide information, believing that the choice of a physician should be the patient’s.

As a practitioner with IPT expertise in breast cancer, I think that the support that Best Answer for Cancer gives in educating women and families who have loved ones with breast cancer is wonderful. At a time when people are looking for answers to how best handle their disease the foundation can educate and support so the person gets the best information so they can make the most survival choices for their future.

The Best Answer for Cancer Foundation is extremely helpful for people considering alternative cancer treatment. I personally know and have seen first hand 2 women with breast cancer who have been treated with Insulin Potentiation Targeted Low Dose (IPTLD). Both women received excellent care and treatment and have been cancer free for several years. I highly recommend anyone with cancer or know someone with cancer or for simply informational purposes exploring this foundation and IPTLD. - J. Gonzalez, Chula Vista, CA

Best Answer for Cancer Foundation is an organization which is dedicated to education of patients in alternative ways of treating cancer, and also to educating physicians in these same alternative ways. Cancer is a frightening and ugly disease, the body's ultimate cry for rescue from an intolerable burden. Best Answer for Cancer Foundation helps us all learn ways of dealing with cancer that do not destroy the body or the environment in which we all live. I am one of the physicians whose life has been changed by this organization. Martha M Grout, MD, MD(H), Scottsdale, AZ.

When I looked around for volunteer opportunities, I found Best Answer for Cancer Foundation. I really liked their philosophy of helping cancer patients discover their particular ‘best answer for cancer’. The Founder and Executive Director is a breast cancer survivor herself, going on 11 years. Although she was told to get her affairs in order in 2001, she found her own best answer for cancer and is still alive and thriving. Annie spends a great deal of time on the phone listening to, and sharing information with, patients. This organization is very altruistic, doing what they do with no formal funding and an all-volunteer staff. I'm very proud to contribute, in any way I can, to this organization.
