Dr. Voss and Cancer Care

NIHA is a best kept secret that needs to be told!! I came to them in January, 2017, with an aggressive breast cancer, triple negative (12 cm tumor), after doing my research and concluding that the treatments they offer would give me my very best hope for survival.

From the moment that Angela (patient coordinator) picked up my first call, I became family. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind, detail oriented and she truly cared! She was the window through which I viewed my possible experience with NIHA, and because of that immediate first impression, that window quickly became the door that welcomed me with open arms. Thank you!

Because of my condition and the treatments I was discussing with Angela, she felt that Dr. Ching Voss would be a perfect fit for me. She couldn't have been more right!! Dr. Voss is compassionate, meticulous, and leaves no stone unturned in discovering root cause of my cancer and helping me address those issues. Her knowledge and professionalism, combined with her empathy and care, have made my success possible! After my initial visit with Dr. Voss, we both felt that LD/IPT (Low Dose Insulin Potentiation Therapy) would give me a real chance at shrinking my tumor and healing my cancer. This, combined with a huge emphasis on nutrition and supplements, has created an environment that has made healing possible! My tumor has gone down to approx 3cm, broken in pieces and showing necrosis according to my PET/CT scan. And, suspicious lymph nodes and lung nodules showed no tracer, to indicate cancer. Dr. Voss and my team at MD Anderson are calling my results "remarkable"! Not only was I thrilled, the entire team at NIHA was cheering with me. So many amazing people there! From Teresa, the office manager, who has supported me every step of the way, to Vi, who assists Dr. Voss with my IPT, works in the lab and is one of the most compassionate people I've ever met, to Frank who works in the lab and has an amazing knowledge of all things integrative - I couldn't feel more cared for, or more at home! There are too many amazing people to name! I'm actually having a little hiatus, for a couple of weeks, and miss them like family!

Please, please!! If you have any type of diagnosis, be sure to educate yourself in all treatment options! Do yourself a favor and make an appointment with NIHA, as part of that research! They offer real, evidence based, Integrative treatment, therapies and testing, that will address chronic issues you didn't even know you had! This is a true road to wellness! I feel better at 52, than I have felt in a very long time, and am looking forward to complete remission! Thank you to all of the staff! V.G.R. 2017
