Doctors attending Dr. Perez Garcia 1's talk.
From 1944 to 1950, Dr. Perez Garcia 1
patients with pyloric stenosis (narrowing or blockage of the opening from the
stomach into the small intestine). In each case, the disease started with gastritis, then escalated to ulcers, and finally stenosis,
a life-threatening situation. Surgery is still (in 2000) the primary standard
treatment for this condition. But Dr. Perez Garcia 1 used 90 units of insulin per
patient, and large doses of penicillin. After seven treatments per person,
all five patients became asymptomatic, both clinically and radiologically.
They were all still completely well when he presented a paper about his results
with nonsurgical treatment of ulcers and appendicitis in 1950, at the 9th
Annual Congress of Surgeons, in Mexico City.

One can only imagine the interest
that these surgeons had in his unusual presentation. Could it be true?
If it were true, it could mean a loss of much of their livelihood. To me it is no
surprise that they did not embrace and celebrate his work and adopt IPT as their new method of
Dr. Perez Garcia 1 was far, far ahead of his time.
It was not until 1995, 45 years later, that the NIH officially recognized that a
bacterium Helicobacter pylori is the cause of most ulcers.
And treatment with antibiotics did not become standard practice until 1997.
Dr. Perez Garcia 1 was even ahead of our
time. Perhaps IPT can make today's antibiotic treatment of ulcers faster
and more effective. And the potential for IPT in healing ulcerated tissues, so
clearly demonstrated by Dr. Perez Garcia 1 in 1950, has yet to be explored.
Think what millions of human-years
of suffering could have been avoided if people had listened to this man.
More honors did come to Dr. Perez Garcia 1 in the early
1950s. In the photo at right, a grateful Mexican Secretary of
Defense, whose son's life the doctor had saved, puts on a dinner in

| Despite his difficulties in gaining
acceptance, Dr. Perez Garcia 1 continued to make efforts to make his work known, through writing and
correspondence. In 1953 he wrote and published a book, Terapia Celular (Cellular Therapy), covering his
work in detail. It is now scanned and available on IPTQ in
the original Spanish. And I am seeking a volunteer to translate it into English

Father and Son
In the late 1950s, Dr. Perez
Garcia 1 did the most important thing he could accomplish for IPT besides
discovering it -- he passed it on to another doctor. In this
case, it was to his son, Dr. Perez Garcia y Bellon 2.
They worked together very closely for some 16 years, from 1956 through 1971,
when Dr. Perez Garcia 1 died. Thanks to this crucial partnership, IPT has
been passed on to the present day.
Together, the two doctors
developed IPT further, and applied it to yet more diseases. As an
example, they claimed great success in reversing the paralysis of polio
in children. See the polio
page for details.
They further developed their
theories of how IPT was working. In the process, they developed a simple
electrophoresis technique and apparatus, called the "Oncodiagnosticator"
that they claimed could detect a biochemical imbalance which could lead to
and support cancer. A series of IPT treatments would apparently change the
reading back to normal.
Together they made
continued efforts to publicize their successes.
Together the two Drs. Perez Garcia wrote another book, Cellular Cancer Therapy Through Modification of
the Blood Physico-Chemical Constants (Donatian Therapy).
And they also produced a documentary film in Spanish and English.
Despite their efforts, and
their continued treatment successes, Drs. Perez Garcia 1 and 2 were
still unable to get the world's attention.
