I have personally witnessed the difference that this organization has made to the lives of people who utilize IPT as their Best Answer to Cancer. I am proud to say the founder of this organization was a very close friend. Though her life was cut short by the cancer she fought, her quality of life was greatly enhanced during those last few years due to her choice of IPT as her treatment. If I am ever faced with the decision of what to do about a cancer this is the organization I will turn to. The collaborative efforts of the wonderful people involved definitely live up to the name of Best Answer for Cancer.

Being a manufacturer of natural products for both the professional and consumer markets, we attend 40+ different conferences each year. I am responsible for our professional Argentyn 23 brand, and as such, I attend the medical conferences on behalf of our company. Best Answer for Cancer stands out as one of The Best conferences of all because of their ability to bring the greatest minds in complementary and integrative oncology together, while sharing new ideas and programs, all of which enhance survival rates and the healthy lifespans of an exponentially growing number of cancer patients. In this industry, we have always said "If the cancer doesn't kill you, the treatment will". That was when allopathic intervention had the stage. That time is now receding as more and more patients and their physicians seek out and embrace kinder and gentler medicine, which offers what allopathic medicine cannot. Real improved outcomes. And Best Answer for Cancer leads the way, from the ONLY organic food served to the vast array of better equipped physicians and some of the best natural therapies manufacturers all congregated in one place annually. Best Answer is a must-attend event.
Gratefully,

Best Answer for Cancer brings together the most diverse, qualified, innovative health professionals available from throughout the world. They also invite quality vendors with ideas, concepts, products, and solutions that are cutting edge and innovative.

There is a huge emphasis on new science and research focusing on "cause not cure". The physicians attending these conferences are interested in providing healthy choices in their administering of care. They find the right products with the right ingredients and technology at Best Answer for Cancer.

We have been a vendor at several conferences and find the atmosphere to be welcoming, receptive, knowledgeable and committed.

As the Director of Behavioral Medicine for a cancer center I am impressed with Best Answer for Cancer's emphasis on holistic wellness and cancer treatment. Focusing on the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual's experience have salutary effects on quality of life as well as outcome. It is a pleasure to recommend this progressive, innovative and caring organization!

Just like the name of the foundation says:"Best Answer for Cancer", we have learned and research continues to support that those that are living with cancer, beating cancer and healing from it and its short/long term effects which in many cases are from regular treatments of the disease. In many situations (and most when Quality of Life is looked at and measured) those that have an integrative treatment and work with practitioners that understand this and heal the body on multiple levels with a solid common sense approach to human health, nutrition, and understanding the type of cancer/history of the patient etc. are by and large more successful. There is no one answer, especially with cancer and each of us are different and the BACF organization understands this and has created their conference, education and support around this. I have seen first hand the success in many cases over the years and am thankful for what Annie Brandt has created in the BACF and supported to reach out and help other people and their families that are dealing with this dreaded disease.

My company Hope4Cancer exhibited at 2013 conference. This group of medical professionals are on the front line of pioneering non-toxic Cancer therapies. Thank you for this forum of breakthrough technologies which those great doctors can exchange their experience and research. This maybe one of the most important forums that the doctors can receive their CE credits (continuing education).

I went to my first International Conference sponsored by Best Answer for Cancer in 2014 and was truly amazed by the amazing 3 day program. Medical professionals gathered to share their knowledge and commitment to providing the best answers for cancer to their patients.

The community and passion the participants share is inspiring! Coming from all over the world with the goal of providing the best outcomes and supporting the whole person makes these people worth donating time to.

I volunteered with this organization throughout the fall of 2011, and the ability this organization has to do so much in so little time with such a small staff blew me away. Annie Brandt is a great leader and with her in charge, I'm looking forward to seeing the amazing work that this foundation will continue to do in the future.

I am a mother who has saved the life of my daughter with the help of good medical doctors - both M.D. and D.O. In the 9 years it took to get my daughter healthy and well, I did an extraordinary amount of medical research, which included cancer. I can say in earnest that this organization is not only amazing, but is a leading edge organization. the Best Answer for Cancer Foundation is the place I direct consumers to donate to if they want to donate to cancer. Best Answer for Cancer Foundation should receive a top rating for a number of reasons - but the top one in my humble opinion is for innovation and using good science.

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.
