Cancer – Chemo without the side effects

The conventional treatment for cancer is the familiar trio of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. The subsequent devastation to the immune system and the organs – especially the liver and heart – is significant. The reduced quality of life, including losing one’s hair, is also tough to take. In conventional treatment, chemotherapy drugs must be administered in doses high enough to kill a large number of cancer cells without killing the body’s immune system and intestinal tract. It’s a balancing act. Patients are given as much chemotherapy as their body can tolerate. It is like killing flies with a cannonball instead of fly swatter. You get rid of some flies, yes, but you have a lot of collateral damage. Good cells die along with the bad. Over time (and sometimes a fairly short period of time, days rather than weeks), this massive bombardment can lead to poor blood counts, organ failure, and death. Because an already poorly functioning immune system is subjected to radiation and toxic drugs, it is difficult to deliver a “cure.”[1]

A time-tested, modified form of chemotherapy has been used successfully and safely around the world for more than 70 years. It is called IPT, or Insulin Potentiation Therapy. Some people call it IPTLD, or Insulin Potentiation Targeted Low Dose therapy.

IPT uses about one-tenth the dosage of a conventional chemotherapy regime. IPT provides a safer, much gentler alternative to conventional chemotherapy, without the harsh side effects. When combined with complementary therapies to nurture the body, it is also more effective. It is a smart way to approach cancer based on what makes cancer cells vulnerable.

The name IPT (Insulin Potentiation Therapy) was changed in 2009 to IPTLD™ (Insulin Potentiation Targeted Low Dose).

IPT’s Positive Impact on Cachexia

The culprit behind perhaps half the cancer deaths is a wasting syndrome called cachexia (pronounced “ka-kek-see-ah”). Patients lose weight and literally starve to death.

Because cancer cells need even more energy than regular cells, the cancer cells gobble up the incoming nutrition first. Your healthy cells get what is left over which can mean the rest of your cells starve when conventional treatment leaves you too nauseated to eat. The tumor stays strong, but the patient wastes away.

The hypoglycemic pulse that occurs with the administration of insulin actually helps the body assimilate the nutrition in food – vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Because IPT is a gentler approach, patients do not get the severe bouts of nausea so common with conventional chemotherapy due to destruction of the rapidly dividing and always renewed cells lining the intestinal tract.
