LifeWorks Wellness Center is experiencing considerable success in treating cancer patients with Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). This powerful approach to combating cancer was introduced by the clinic in May, 2012 and has resulted in a number of positive results.*

Mike was diagnosed with Stage IV prostate cancer and given a 36% chance of survival. When diagnosed, his PSA (the marker per blood test that shows the cancer) was at 291. Normal is between 1 and 4, so he was scared!  In a matter of months his PSA went from 291 down to under 1.*

A year ago, Peg was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast Cancer and today she is  healthy, active and cancer free. Dr. Stewart is now 11 months out from diagnosis of Stage 4 lung cancer and hasn’t felt better.*

LifeWorks co-founder and Medical Director, Dr. David Minkoff explains, “most of our patients have late stage disease and have been told there was nothing more that could be done. Each was searching for something that might give them hope for a longer future. At LifeWorks we have been able to provide that.”
