Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) Minimizes the Destructiveness of Chemotherapy
Lower Doses of Chemotherapy Can Be Used Effectively
Chemotherapy does not distinguish between cancer cells and normal cells. As discussed in the hub I recently wrote titled Healthy and Proven Alternatives to Chemotherapy, the outcome or result of each chemotherapy treatment is to poison the dividing cells with cytotoxic drugs.
There are approximately 110 doctors worldwide trained in a procedure called Insulin Potentiation Therapy. Two of the most experienced doctors in this method are Ross Hauser, M.D. and Marion Hauser, M.S. of the Caring Medical Clinic in Oak Park, Illinois.
In the book, Cancer-Free, Your Guide to Gentle Non-Toxic Healing authored by Bill Henderson, the Hausers are quoted as describing the procedure. To paraphrase, during Insulin Potentiation Therapy, a small amount of insulin is given to the cancer patient approximately 30 minutes before the chemotherapy treatment is administered. The small dose of insulin fools the cancer cells into thinking they are going to be fed. As the patient begins to experience the hypoglycemia symptoms of lightheadedness and weakness, a low dosage of the traditional chemotherapy is given by intravenous 'push'. A smaller amount of the chemotherapy cocktail can be administered in this way.
Insulin is Not the Only Substance which Can Act as a Potentiator
In this method, the insulin acts as a potentiating agent. In other words, it increases the kill power of the chemotherapy and so a lower dosage can be used. Actually, insulin is not the only substance that can drastically improve the effects of chemotherapy while causing less damage overall.
There have been scientific studies done which prove the effects of the following substances as potentiators just as insulin is a potentiator.
More than a dozen other substances have been proven to work successfully as potentiators with chemotherapy. If you have the book by Bill Henderson, mentioned above, see pages 71 – 75 (Second Edition).
Dr. Donato Perez Garcia, Sr., Pioneered IPT
Dr. Donato Perez Garcia, Sr., is the man responsible for having discovered and pioneered IPT. He began in Tijuana in 1930. There are three generations of his family who have worked with this method and have been giving seminars with the outcomes and statistics. Dr. Garcia, Sr., carried out IPT from 1930 until 1971 with a morbidity rate of 0% during 41 years. Among the three family members who worked with patients using this method, there was a 0% morbidity rate spread over 100 years of work. (There were overlapping years in their careers.) IPT is an alternative to the high dosage chemotherapy method because it uses only 10-25% of the amounts of cytotoxins given during traditional chemo treatments by oncologists.

The mechanisms of malignancy (insulin growth factor) and the cancer cell's own insulin cause the cancer to grow. IPT works with this natural process to kill cancer cells effectively. Much lower doses of chemotherapy is required. Side effects are rare

IPT physicians have written and published many studies in professional journals and they have briefed the National Institutes of Health on several occasions.
Why is it that most doctors and oncologists do not bring up the subject of this alternative and legal option to their patients? The answer is: Using lesser amounts of chemotherapy translates into the loss of chemotherapy dollars by the cancer industry. As stated by Bill Henderson, the documented average dollar amount earned by the cancer industry on chemotherapy patients is $500,000. Oncologists are part of the cancer industry.
It is important to keep potentiator therapy in perspective. Killing cancer cells with chemotherapy using a low dose of drugs each time due to the benefits of a potentiating agent – is only one aspect of a cancer patient’s journey to a restoration of health. The six steps of the health treatment regimen discussed by Bill Henderson in his book have been shaped by the success of cancer patients in using certain holistic properties throughout the years -- including antioxidants, specific supplements, a cancer-fighting diet together with moderate exercise.

Cancer creates confusion. Many alternative cancer treatments really work. This popular book guides you to the cheapest and most effective. All gentle, non-toxic and easy on your pocketbook.
Understand the Cause of Your Cancer
A thyroid condition can lower the body’s ability to fight off cancer. Research has shown traumatic stress, such as the loss of a child, can minimize the body’s ability to kill the million cancer cells that are generated in one’s body every day due to faulty division of the cells working hard to divide. The cancer cells travel to the most acidic organ in your body. This produces a tumor which can go undiscovered for 5 – 15 years. So -- if it takes that long to form and be discovered, a person who is diagnosed with cancer can take a week or a month as needed to research one’s options and learning some facts. As long as the cancer is still contained -- not punctured and released via biopsy or surgery -- it is fairly safe to take the necessary time to do the research and form an intelligent plan with your health care provider.
There are four other main causes of cancer that can thwart the body’s ability to function optimally in its fight against cancer cells, but this is too big of a subject to drop into this hub.
If one or more of these conditions exist in the person with cancer – thyroid condition or one or some of the other four conditions -- which I will write a hub about soon – then progress in fighting the cancer cannot be successful. These conditions need to be dealt with. You want to get healthy and you do not want the cancer to return. The starting point is to order blood tests. You can order the blood tests yourself. I have placed a link up above to Bill Henderson's website. He explains on his site the importance of obtaining and understanding your blood test results.
IPT or Insulin Potentiation Therapy is but one of the alternative ways to approach the diagnosis of cancer. There are many other approaches, some to be used in conjunction with others.
A person diagnosed with cancer needs to have a clear mind, carry out cancer treatment research (or have an advocate -- a family member or friend -- do the research) and take prudent steps.
Be Vigilant In Your Cancer Care
I recommend the book by Bill Henderson as a good starting point: Cancer-Free, Your Guide to Gentle, Non-Toxic Healing. There are many experts quoted in the book along with contact information for these scientists, doctors and other resources.
I leave you with the statement by one of the many experts noted in Henderson’s book. Linus Pauling, Ph.D., two-time Nobel Laureate stated, “Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud, and that the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.”
Each person diagnosed with cancer must do research and then make decisions they feel good about. For some, the decision will be to do chemotherapy treatment, radiation therapy and have the guidance of a doctor of choice. For others, effective alternative medicine will be an integral part of the equation.
