The Wonderland Logic: Are We Frozen in Place While We Wait for THE CURE?
New research in cancer treatment is moving closer toward the cure at a snail's pace for patients that endure each day with harsh high-dose chemotherapies. Time is the cancer patient's enemy. The most successful cases are often caught early while the prognosis for late stage cancer patients remains to be a poor outcome. Moreover, oncologists offer little hope against advanced stage cancers and do not propose conventional treatment as even an option for their patients. Why? The treatment will do nothing to arrest the cancer's growth and perhaps even kill the patient before the cancer consumes all the functions of the body.
Best Answer for Cancer Foundation supports Insulin Potentiation Targeted LowDose (IPTLD or IPT Targeted LowDose) Chemotherapy as a viable option for those patients who can not do traditional high-dose chemo, because the treatment targets only the cancer cells, not the whole body. As a result, an advanced-stage cancer patient's immune system and vital body organs remain healthy with few or no side effects. IPTLD is aggressive on the cancer and gentle on the patient.
It is also good to know that new research is discovering the strengths of immune cells to digest cancer cells in their early stages of development and ironically, IPTLD eats cancer cells, too, at all four stages. December 22, 2010 HealthDay article, by Randy Dotinga, reports from Stanford University School of Medicine about a protein on a cancer cell with the ability to send an "Eat Me" signal to immune cells. "The challenge, the researchers say, is to figure out how to coax the cancer cells into emitting the signal rather than a dangerous Don't Eat Me signal." The future for cancer prevention and for the body itself to ward off cancer growth looks very promising. However, in the meantime, IPTLD is becoming used by our own Alice in Wonderland when faced with the many options of treatments today .
Cancer patients today must absorb the lessons of Alice in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, so that they can empower themselves with the fortitude and self-confidence to insist on IPTLD in their choices or options of cancer treatment care. The main theme of the fairy tale is the transition from childhood into adulthood. Likewise, a recently diagnosed cancer patient must lose their innocence about what is really good for their bodies, their immune systems, their health and what is damaging and can have long term effects even after surviving cancer. Adults learn to stand up for themselves and are thankful for being alive. IPTLD and Integrative Cancer treatments are allowing patients to experience of ‘Thriving While Surviving’ cancer.
When first informed of the traumatic diagnosis, there is often depression and an inability to cope with the situation. Cancer patients look to their families and friends for support and guidance or they can ‘turn off’ to all of and then suffer deeper depressions. In the beginning of our story our brave character, Alice, is also unable to maintain her composure but by the end of the book, she is stronger and becomes self-reliant against the most baffling Wonderland logic. In reality, the cancer patient has come to terms with the chronic illness and the choice of treatment.
IPTLD, Best Answer for Cancer Foundation's choice of treatment, especially for patients with late stage cancers, supports patients, their families and friends to know their options. The Foundation encourages patients to build their own Healing Platform of Integrated Therapies that support the immune system and vital body organs and to let that platform also support the work of IPTLD treatment .
Best Answer for Cancer Foundation believes that the ‘best answer for cancer’ is a platform of integrated healing modalities that support a targeted cancer therapy of choice. Their targeted therapy of choice is IPTLD. By keeping their vital body organs and immune system strong and choosing a cancer therapy that targets just the cancer and not the person, their cancer can become a “non-event.” Alice in Wonderland as a non-event just does not seem logical. Those at Best Answer for Cancer Foundation believe that every cancer patient has the right to determine the direction of their own lives because it is their life.
