Low-dose chemo (IPT) is a better cancer alternative

IPT is a gentler, safer, more natural approach, especially when it is combined with an individualized program of detoxification and immune system support.

by Dr. Frank George — 

Cancer cells have an Achilles heel: sugar. Cancer cells gobble sugar for their energy supply, whereas most other cells use fat as their energy source. This difference is the key to IPT, or insulin potentiated therapy.

In IPT, the patient relaxes in a lounge chair with an IV. Insulin is given in the IV to cause the patient’s blood sugar level to drop. As the blood sugar drops, healthy cells shift over to fat metabolism, but the cancer cells become seriously compromised. Cancer cells rely almost entirely on sugar metabolism, so they go into an emergency mode and open all of their membranes in an effort to get sugar. At this point they become very vulnerable.

After about 30 minutes of insulin, the “doors” to the cancer cells are flung wide open, and the patient is given a small amount of chemo drugs intravenously. Because the cancer cells are wide open, they take in almost all of the chemo.

In this way, cancer can be treated with about one-tenth the normal amount of chemo drugs. And there is little of the chemo left over to cause a toxic reaction within the healthy cells of the body. Patients who choose IPT have far fewer side-effects like hair loss and nausea, and their immune systems do not take a beating.

Potentiate means that one substance — insulin — enhances the effectiveness of another substance — chemotherapy — and thus far less chemo is needed. IPT works with a pulse of hypoglycemia, which profoundly changes the functionality of the cells and greatly improves the efficacy of the medicine.

In standard chemotherapy, insulin is not used to open up the cells. Patients must receive large doses of chemo drugs so that enough will be absorbed by the cells to do the job. The majority of the chemo is not taken up by the cancer cells, so it damages the rest of the body. This is one reason traditional chemo causes so many side-effects.

IPT increases penetration of the chemo into areas of the body that are difficult to reach, such as the central nervous system, the joints and solid tumors. It has been reported that insulin increases the toxicity and efficacy of methotrexate, a common chemo drug, by a factor of 10,000 in breast cancer cells in vitro.

IPT is a gentler, safer, more natural approach, especially when it is combined with an individualized program of detoxification and immune system support.

 

The late Frank George, D.O., M.D.(H), practiced IPT and was the first osteopathic physician in the United States to train with Dr. Donato Garcia Perez in IPT. He taught IPT to other doctors.
