Q: Can CAAT help my type of cancer?
A: Yes, there may be hope. No matter if you are diagnosed with one of the rarest forms of cancer or one of the most common, CAAT has helped most patients throughout the various stages of the disease. Cancer cells, regardless of the type, survive through the same biochemical processes. CAAT interferes with these processes, starving the harmful cells of the fuel they need to survive.
Q: Do I need to visit the A.P. John Institute for Cancer Research to receive CAAT?
A: No. You can follow CAAT in the comfort of your own home. We have successfully treated patients around the globe via e-mail, internet video conference, telephone, postal mail, and fax.
Q: Will CAAT interfere with my current treatment regimen, i.e., chemotherapy or radiation?
A: No, CAAT will not interfere with conventional chemotherapy or radiation treatments. It may very well enhance their benefits according to studies done on amino acid deprivation by Marco Rabinowitz, Ph.D., formerly of the National Cancer Institute, and others.
Q: How long do I need to follow the CAAT protocol?
A: We recommend patients commit to a minimum of three months on the CAAT protocol. However, because of its biological nature, most patients stay with the protocol from six to nine months.
Q: Does health insurance cover the cost of CAAT?
A: Health insurance may cover the cost of CAAT, depending on your state's laws on health insurance. The cost of CAAT is tax deductible on Federal returns under the following conditions: "You cannot include in medical expenses the cost of nutritional supplements, vitamins, herbal supplements, "natural medicines," etc. unless they are recommended by a medical practitioner as treatment for a specific medical condition diagnosed by a physician." See IRS Publication 502 (2012), Nutritional Supplements.
Q: Is financing available to me?
A: No, unfortunately we do not provide financing at this time.
Q: Will I lose or gain weight on CAAT?
A: The objective is to feed the body and starve the cancer. When fighting cancer, patients should ideally be as lean as possible. We frequently adjust food plans for patients according to their weight, helping those who are overweight lose body fat safely and those who are underweight gain.
Q: Do doctors know about CAAT?
A: Some do. Obviously, the ones at the leading cancer research institutions responsible for the independent studies the CAAT protocol is based upon do, as well as those treating our patients. However, even though we are invited to medical conferences to share our information on CAAT and we have an educational newsletter for oncologists that we fax to them periodically, chances are good that your doctor may not be familiar with the CAAT protocol. This is primarily due to the fact that your oncologist simply cannot sift through the 40,000 medical papers published yearly to distinguish what integrative or complementary protocols are available. The majority of his/her time is spent providing you with the best care through conventional modalities.
Q: What role do I play in my own survival?
A: This may be the most important question! It is important to remember that cancer is not just fought with medicine, surgery, and technology. It is also fought with willpower, determination, and a positive attitude. You play as big a part in your survival as your healthcare providers do. Understanding this will hopefully empower you to be proactive in your approach to the disease. It is incumbent upon you to seek out good medical treatment and make sure health care providers are doing everything possible to manage the cancer in your body. The majority of our patients has been willing to seek out ways to extend the effectiveness of the treatment that their physicians were providing (chemotherapy/radiation/surgery) if that treatment plan was not ensuring 100 percent recovery. Most of the time, these patients had to bring to the attention of their doctors their desire to augment their treatment with a successful protocol such as CAAT.
Q: How do I approach my doctor about adding CAAT to my treatment regimen?
A: We suggest you keep it as simple as possible. You may want to ask your doctor what your chance of recovery is with your present plan of treatment. If it is not 100 percent, then you could follow up with another question asking if he or she knows of anything that may increase your chances of a full recovery outside the use of surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation. Consequently, if your doctor has nothing else to offer, you may want to inform him or her of your desire to incorporate CAAT into your treatment plan. You can provide him or her with the physician information on this protocol, which works synergistically with chemotherapy and/or radiation not only to make these more effective, but also to lessen their toxic side effects. You can also have him or her read our White Paper as well.
Q: What response can I expect from my doctor?
A: That depends upon your doctor. Your doctor probably spends the vast amount of his/her time running his or her practice. The majority of time spent on diagnosing and developing comprehensive treatment plans to eradicate cancer through the use of conventional practices such as chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, given the amount of patients they care for doesn't leave enough time for them to sift through the tens of thousands of new medical reports and studies done yearly. With this in mind, it may fall on you to bring to your doctor's attention, respectfully, the lesser-known and new facts and findings regarding cancer treatment and protocols. We suggest that you inform yourself as best you can, prepare to ask questions, and be ready to be a part of the solution. What our patients have found is that when their current treatment plan leaves them with less than 100 percent chance of responding to their treatment(s) and or surviving their cancer, they present our CAAT protocol and supporting data to their doctor as stated above, typically the doctor will say "well, it can't hurt."
