Is there any way Dr. Ackerley can prescribe the VIP for you since you have consulted with her online (before, I gather, she stopped doing this). Maybe there are regulations that prevent that since you're in different states. Just wondering. I sympathize with the unbelievably high expenses of trying to restore our bodies integrity.


My understanding as of July 2018 is that Dr Ackerley does still work with patients via telemedicine, but she does not establish a doctor patient relationship (ie ordering tests, writing rx) without a visit to her office, and then requires an in person office visit once a year. I think her fees are less than Dr Rapaport's, but the travel expenses may eat up the difference. It's possible that things might have changed since July!

Thing is with VIP, you have to have monthly labs done on lipase to make sure it's not messing your pancreas up. That requires a draw and order. Someone can set up standing orders for you. But it has to be monitored.

My doc, Dr. Jennifer Smith - isn't that far from Tuscon. She is in Scotsdale. She will do telephone too. She has to initially see you. Not sure of her telephone pricing. I think she may be less than Dr. Ackerly. She believes in VIP working. But, she follows the guidelines to make sure your body is ready for it.

If someone in the US doesn't have a doctor who can or will do a standing order for lipase, it can be ordered through Life Extension.

Wow, beautiful results! What are your secrets?

Is the whole brain score and percentile you mention the same as what shows on my report as the intracranial volume and ICV percentage?
