About Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT), also known as low dose chemotherapy, is an intravenous alternative cancer treatment. The specialized therapy is a non-diabetic use of the hormone insulin to dramatically improve effectiveness and delivery of standard medications and lower doses of chemotherapy to treat cancer. It is also sometimes used with other treatments for chronic diseases. Discovered in 1926 by Donato Perez Garcia MD, the therapy appears to work, in part, as an efficient drug delivery system across cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier.

Each year, tens of millions of people are diagnosed with cancer around the world. In the United States, cancer ranks the second most common cause of death. The traditional cancer treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and they are well known for their side effects. In fact, researchers from Public Health England and Cancer Research UK performed a groundbreaking study examining for the first time the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of beginning chemotherapy – indicating the treatment, not the cancer, was the cause of death.

During standard chemotherapy, where insulin is not used, patients must be given a large dose of chemotherapeutic drugs so that enough will be absorbed by the cells to work effectively. This therapy has a degenerative effect not only on cancer cells, but on healthy cells as well. The immune system suffers while patients experience numerous side effects. With recent understandings of the hypermetabolic activity of the cancer cells, it is now possible to avoid the dose-related side effects of chemotherapy, and at the same time increase the effectiveness and specificity of these agents in killing cancer cells. The key to this is a low dose chemotherapy- IPT.

Initially the treatment was used for syphilis. Later on, Dr. Perez Garcia used IPT in the treatment of other diseases including arthritis, asthma, and colitis. Since 1947, Perez has also treated cancer patients with IPT, claiming positive results. Since then, IPT was used to treat a wide variety of cancer patients worldwide with great results. However, there are a small group of patients who are allergic to insulin and the treatment may not be an ideal option for them.

Benefits of IPT Therapy

Clinical experience has shown that insulin potentiation therapy may be used for a number of conditions and issues, and that the benefits include:

  • Improves cell membrane permeability to increase the intracellular dose intensity of the drugs
  • Delivers higher-levels of the chemotherapy drugs into the cancer cells, and also causes these cells to go into their growth phase where they actually become more vunerable to chemotherapy drugs
  • Helps assist debilitated cancer patients with appetite and metabolism, helping to mitigate the wasting – cachexia – that accompanies the disease and its therapy
  • Reduces the dosage of the chemotherapeutic drugs as well as the side effects of the regular chemotherapy by 20%
  • Transports drugs across the blood-brain barrier
