The history of IPT began in the
military, with Donato Perez Garcia 1, and IPT could have a future there, too.
The best treatment for military injuries is prevention of war. But if
such injuries occur, I think we will find that IPT has a lot to
offer. Soldiers and civilians in war zones are human beings, and are
susceptible to all the diseases and accidents that life can bring to
anyone. Traumatic injuries are more likely, and there are some unique
conditions that can arise in these zones.
Trauma. Insulin by itself has been
shown to speed the healing of wounds, burns, and fractures, when applied
topically and injected locally. Dr. Perez Garcia 1 used the IPT protocol to achieve
spectacular results in treating stomach ulcers (including cases with pyloric
appendicitis. I think this implies that IPT would be excellent for
treating both superficial and deep internal wounds, even dirty, ulcerated, and
Infection. IPT has been shown to provide very fast, efficient
treatment for even the severest of infections.
Antibiotics and antivirals are made more effective, in smaller doses, and are
transported better, even into parts of the body where membranes impede passage,
or where circulation is impaired. Symptoms secondary to infection can be
controlled through administration of multiple medications in the IPT
protocol. IPT may make possible better, faster treatments for infections
from wounds and from biological warfare.
IPT protocols may also be developed for rapid, effective treatment of radiation sickness
and the effects of chemical warfare. IPT could help chelate out heavy
metals such as lead and uranium that are absorbed in a war zone.
IPT could be used to treat psychiatric disorders,
respiratory diseases, and cancers
that develop in veterans long after their war experience.
Since IPT has been reported to be so effective in treating many different
complex degenerative diseases, perhaps it can be considered for treatment of
symptoms and perhaps even causes of Gulf War Syndrome.
One of the aftereffects of war can be addiction
to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Dr. Perez Garcia y Bellon 2 (in archives) and Dr.
Paquette have shown that IPT can be effective in detoxifying the body,
reducing craving, and helping end addiction to these substances.
Altitude sickness, frostbite, heatstroke, and other conditions discussed on the expedition
and space medicine page, apply just as well to military use.
As a historical note, it is fitting to remember here that Dr. Perez Garcia 1
was a military doctor at the time he discovered IPT, and that much of his
early IPT work was done at military hospitals in Mexico and the US. He
retired from military service as a Brigadier General.
