Medicine of Hope,
SOME SPECTACULAR RESULTS
In Insulin-Cellular Therapy, what
stimulated me the most are the often spectacular results that I
obtained, for example:
asthmatic Haitian engineer (see respiratory diseases, case # 16) who,
the day after the first treatment, twice descended and climbed back up
running the 23 steps of the clinic’s stairs, with cries of joy. The
day before, very dyspneic, he had to stop a few seconds at each step to
catch "his breath" again.
old arthritic lady who had cried when cutting her steak for the first
time in twelve years, and who took pleasure in descending alone the
large staircase, she who could not even stand up on her arrival at the
clinic. (See rheumatic diseases, case # 15.)
other very radiant lady: "it is the first time in twelve years that
I can do alone my ‘toilette intime’ (personal hygiene)."
young asthmatic very happy to jump in the swimming pool from the second
floor as he did it "before".
emphysema patient who swam two swimming pool lengths after the treatment
and who walked two hours on mountain trails. (See
respiratory diseases, case # 6.)
• This super-allergic lady
who after 24 hours could eat poultry, use "nail polish and
solvent" and, without respiratory problem take in a full breath of
the odors of fuel-oil and gas from Haiti. (See respiratory diseases,
case # 21.)
two cases of psoriasis (see skin diseases, case # 6 & 7) showing
after 48 hours an improvement of 60%, without application of pomade
nor ointment and this other case with vitiligo (see skin diseases,
case # 4) who notices that she can expose herself to the sun without
redness or appearance of blisters.
two hemiplegic patients who after 24 hours: raise, one his paralyzed
left leg, the other the paralyzed arm and leg. (See neurological
diseases, cases # 6 & 9.)
other hemiplegic patient who walked so heavily in the waiting room, the
day after the treatment, just for the pleasure of feeling his
foot touching the ground. (See neurological diseases, case # 2.)
electrician who leans over, imprudently in our eyes, from the clinic
roof when just the day before, because of his vertigo, he was clutching
the wire netting on the second floor for fear of falling (see neurologic
diseases, case # 5).
brewery agent, suffering also from vertigo, who on the following day,
imprudently walks back and forth along the edge of the swimming pool
(see circulatory diseases, case # 6).
two hypertensive patients (see circulatory diseases, cases # 2 &
whose blood pressure was normalized in a few days almost without
journalist treated for circulatory troubles who, the day after her
treatment, while trying to read her newspaper, exclaims aggressively:
"How it is that I cannot read with my glasses?" I told her to
remove them. Surprised, she realizes that she can read without her
glasses for the first time in 5 years.
widower sexagenarian, treated for asthma and emphysema, very happy to
have found... the ardor of his youth!
40 year old housewife, suffering from bilateral deafness for the last 30
years who recovers an almost normal auditory acuteness. She
cancels the order for her hearing aid (see rheumatic diseases, case # 10).
young Italian actress treated for viral hepatitis, who, to her great
surprise, sees in a few days her vision and hearing improve and her
cysts disappear (see digestive diseases, case # 3).
old lady from Vancouver, diabetic and arthritic who the day after her
treatment, was strolling as if she was looking for something, suddenly
exclaimed: "There I found out: It is my ache I was
It is by sneaking away to hide my emotions
and my tears that I reacted before these too eloquent testimonies. How
many times I asked myself: "Is this possible? It is not the
medicine I was taught at the University!"
Will you forgive me for having allowed the
valve to open slightly?
I had to tell you that.
Perhaps some patients might hold a grudge for
my not having mentioned the extraordinary results they have experienced
with ICT. I had to limit myself among several hundred of testimonials.
An old proverb:
Say no more: your friends understand you and
your enemies do not believe you!
Michael Levi, an international celebrity in oncology, gynecology,
obstetrics, allergy, immunotherapy, surgery, holder of 17 fellowships,
director of the OBGYN hospital in New York, professor at Harvard
University and Columbia University, is the author of a hundred
scientific medical publications in France, Switzerland, and the United
"It is an immunological and
biological treatment that increases cellular permeability and makes
it possible to reduce the dosages. It is a positive contribution to
"ICT made a jump out of conventional
medicine whose results are not extraordinary. It has a lot to teach to
us who are regarded as the ‘aces of the scalpel’. This is why I have
decided to help Dr. Paquette.
The Medicine we have learned does not produce
these results" (see circulatory diseases, case # 3).
Dr. Augustin Roy, president of the
College of Medicine:
"We cannot reproach you for doing what
you believe best for the well-being of your patients." (See
letter from Augustin Roy.)
"If a therapy that can potentiate
medications existed, to the point of being able to use them without
toxicity, it would deserve the Nobel Prize." (Declared in 1986
on Canadian television.)
The Honorable Doctor Albiny Paquette (my
father), former Minister of Health:
"A medicine like ICT would empty 60% of
doctors’ offices if you succeeded in having it followed by the
lifestyle you recommend."
OTHER WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS
It would be marvelous to have such a clinic
in Quebec. The patients would not have to wait any more for the extreme
limit to receive your treatments. While waiting, I ask the Lord to
enlighten the people who can help you carry out your project. You could
not have done more for my husband.
It is already a little over eight month,
that, filled with hope, I went to your clinic to be treated for asthma
I can only bless this day because my health
has not ceased improving. The male nurse from the in-home care has
re-examined me after nine months and said to me: "I do not have
anything to do here any more." My glycemia had become normal again
and I was not suffering any more from asthma.
Thank you Esculape (Asclepios), god of
medicine, to have given to your beloved disciple, Jean-Claude, the
sacred fire avant-gardist of the Insulin-Cellular Therapy.
A Group of Patients
Health is the greatest wealth. Few doctors
can return it to us.
Ginette and Pierre S.
Life is so beautiful, when we are in good
health. We thank the Lord for having met you: it is a success. You are a
complete doctor! We do not need to consult several of them.
Lucien and Pauline G.
From you, I received what is the most
beautiful and the best. I understood that it is only up to me, to have
the will power. May Jesus give it to me.
Day after day, I realize the benefits of this

Since my first ICT treatment, I have regained
confidence in a better medicine.
Thanks for knowing how to listen to me so
well . Thank you for all the humanity emanating from you.
This year, we will be able to see the
holidays and to enjoy them. Last year, on this date, we were in Haiti.
God allowed us to find someone who helped us to recover our health.
Norbert and Adèla V.
In fifteen days, an extraordinary change
occurred: I have recovered at least 60% of my capabilities. I was the
happiest. It was a success. I follow my diet and your advice the best I
can. I am doing very well and I can do just about all I want. I carry my
seventy-six years very well.
You treat us with love.
I feel very bad that we did not know about
A chronic asthmatic, I was treated with ICT
in 1980. My behavior has changed completely since. It has been fifteen
years and I still feel the benefits of this cure.
The cure was for me a resurrection:
diverticula, circulatory troubles, chronic osteoarthritis,
hypercholesterolemy, sinusitis, all has returned to normal since my ICT
treatment, ten years ago.
Dr. Paquette has only done me good,
physically and morally. I have heard only praise about him and his
therapy. If I am still in good health at 63, it is thanks to his good
care. At the age of 23, I was suffering from psoriasis. Someone tried
out an arsenic treatment on me: I endured the effects all my life to end
up with an arsenical cancer of the prostate... .
I will always remember this first clinic in
Haiti. What human warmth on behalf of the doctor and his assistants. It
was like a big family. This spirit was shared by all the patients, each
one encouraged and helped the other. What a difference with a large
hospital! On my return home, I did not have to reserve an appointment
two or three months in advance... . Without the care that he lavished on
me, I would undoubtedly not be on this earth any more... .
ICT is a simple, adequate way and without
psychic trauma, unlike surgery under general anesthesia. Someone wanted
to operate me for my ovarian cysts. That was no longer necessary: Seven
years have passed since my ICT treatments and my problems have
disappeared. I am very satisfied.
My husband suffered from a cancer of the
liver (80% affected in 1987) with metastases to the lungs. His ICT
treatments gave very positive results. He has been able to go about his
occupations for almost a year without suffering. Dr. P. does not only
give hope to his patients, but he does all in his power to cure them.
Having seen so many cures thanks to ICT, I recommend these treatments to
those who are desperate.
Thanks for having helped me to live these
five past years. After having had two infarctions, my heart was
exhausted and so was I The ICT, the diet and the lifestyle are keeping
me alive. I believe that without you, I would not have survived. I owe
it to you that I am down here.
An ICT treatment, it is so marvelous that we
must experience it to believe in it. It is like life: when you hear it
spoken about, then thereafter it is your turn to live it. Consciously, I
took the necessary step to come here to seek life, I mean the true
quality of life. It removes from you the anxiety of getting old.
My name is Mario D. I was treated with ICT in
1987. I can affirm that the treatment I have received saved my life. I
was suffering so much that I resorted to drugs, to drinking, and was
thinking of suicide. Otitides, sinusitis, circulatory troubles
disappeared. I started to live from this moment on, because, so far as I
can remember in my childhood, I have always suffered. I believe that is
what led me to drugs, to drinking, and would probably have led me to
suicide. The most marvelous of all is that I have been off drugs and
drinking for eight years, and that I owe it to Dr. P. Thank you,
Jean-Claude, for having given me back life. It is beautiful!
Since adolescence and even my most tender
childhood, I have suffered atrociously from asthma. I have endured
hundreds of crises, the deprivation of going out with my friends, the
pangs of this pitiless disease. The impossibility to pet an animal, to
put on perfume, to smell the odor of a flower, cigarettes, beauty and
How many times have I been urgently
transported to hospitals and there, didn’t I almost pass away?
After twenty-five years, ICT made me start
living again. I finally could leave my prison. It is a rebirth of life,
I am wonderstruck with it. I believe I have found the Fountain of Youth.
Isn't oxygen in the air free for everyone?
But still it is necessary to be able to breathe it! I thank Heaven for
having found health: it is the bigest fortune on earth. Thank you Dr.
WHAT TWO LUNG SPECIALISTS THOUGHT
Dr. Albert Joannette: Lung
specialist for 53 years at the time and deceased since.
During the treatment given in his presence in
Ferme-Neuve, he stopped to greet my father in his residence of
"Mister Minister (remembering his old
title), I have just attended the application of a marvelous medicine. I
assisted your son in his ICT treatment for an asthmatic patient. I
hope not to close my eyes before seeing that ICT is accepted in Quebec.
Then he added, in my presence: "Me,
if I were Minister of Health, I would grant 10 or 20 beds to your son in
a hospital, with a team of specialists at his disposal, to undertake
scientific research and to treat his patients according to the
principles of this marvelous therapy, as it is regularly done in
Dr. Agop Karagos, lung specialist of the
Laurentien hospital, Sainte-Agathe, deceased in July 1994.
"If ICT were routinely applied in lung
cancer cases, a lot of non-operable cases could become operable and, in
any event, the operation would be done under conditions much more
favorable for the patient."
"Extrapolating, even cardiac surgery
could find advantages there. With your treatment, a shrinking of the
lesion occurs. A resection could be done with much more success than
without the ICT treatment. If cancer cases came in time to your hands,
it would be much more effective."
And, on another occasion: "To deny
results, a counter-proof is needed saying, for example: ‘I have tried
this therapy and the results are not proper’. However nobody has ever
tested it, nor has ever come to this conclusion."
WHAT "LA PETITE REVUE DE PHILOSOPHIE" MAGAZINE
Autumn 1983, Collège Edouard Montpetit, Longueuil, Québec
EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINE: INSULIN-CELLULAR
Interview with Doctor Jean-Claude Paquette,
Director of the clinic of Pétion-Ville, Haiti.
"In science, there is only one road, it
is the experimental method." Remy Chauvin, Biology Professor at
Medical practice, even if it is sometimes
preferable not to underscore it with the patients, has an experimental
aspect. This aspect is not only necessary but it constitutes the nerve
of its evolution. In medicine, nothing is conceivable without
experimentation. The reading of the history of medicine completely
Doctor Jean-Claude Paquette, from Ferme-Neuve,
has just published a booklet on a very new therapy he has practiced for
8 years. The quality of his process and the philosophy of the human
person who accompanies it are worth a review in our questioning on life’s
sciences. The interview that follows aims to sensitize us to the
progress and the scientific work of the Doctors Perez and Paquette.
La Petite Revue: Explain briefly to us, Doctor Paquette, the
bases of this therapy you are practicing in your clinic, and what it
brings that is new in the field of medicine.
Dr. Paquette: First, it is above all a technique that has
three marked advantages:
a) It treats the totality of the human body at the same time,
instead of attacking the body, part by part.
b) It does not treat only the effects, but attacks logically
c) It does not treat diseases, but the human beings suffering
from diseases, because each one is sick in his own way and can heal in
his own way too.
It is a technique that is not so new, because
Dr. Donato Perez Garcia Sr. discovered it, over fifty years ago. This
technique utilizes insulin, discovered in 1921 by the Canadians Banting
and Best. However, medicine has used insulin so far only as a hormone to
fight the hyperglycemia caused by a deficiency of the pancreas. Doctor
Perez had the idea to use insulin not as a hormone but as a medication.
Because, as I summarized in my book, insulin
has two properties: at first to increase the permeability of the
cellular membrane, then Doctor Perez has sensed that this
exceptional state of the cell would perhaps, allow the potentiation,
the reinforcement of the effect of the medications. Whence the
second term, "cellular", qualifying the therapy tested by
Doctor Perez, because it is on the level of the cell, the basal unit of
the human body, that the bio-physico-chemical modifications of the
organism are made.
La Petite Revue: And what are the advantages of this
increased cellular permeability caused by insulin?
Dr. Paquette: It produces two synergistic and therapeutically
positive phenomena: body detoxification, and potentiation of
medications. The temporary hypoglycemia, i.e. the transitory fall of
blood sugar, allows on the one hand a considerable decrease in the
amounts of medications used to care for the patient. It also makes it
possible to inject and use several medications so as to treat several
diseases simultaneously. The results are more revealing. We wait for the
"therapeutic moment" started by insulin to treat
not diabetes, but asthma, chronic bronchitis, arthritis, multiple
sclerosis, psoriasis, migraines, certain cancers, allergic states,
certain cases of slipped disc, and hemiplegia (paralysis of one half of
La Petite Revue: This intervention on the whole human body to
transform the whole metabolism before beginning to treat makes me think
of certain alchemical medicines.
Dr. Paquette: You are right to underline this setting in
awakening of all the cells of the body as being a new way of proceeding
with tools already known. There is, for me, a kind of motto:
"Non nova sed nove". "Nothing new, but in a new way".
Insulin opens the gate of the cells for us. We have here an
extraordinary working platform. This way we can sometimes decrease the
doses of medications down to one quarter or even to one fifth. We also
can, observation has confirmed, simultaneously treat several
pathological states in the patient.
La Petite Revue: Without risk of interaction between
Dr. Paquette: If it were about a simple technique, there would be
reasons to ask ourselves some questions. But this is where the
theoretical aspect of this therapy enters into consideration.
Indeed, the latter is not only a technique but it is a medicine in its
most appropriate meaning. Insulin-Cellular Therapy is defined as a
holistic medicine. It is a medicine, which treats the human person in
We have had none, absolutely no case of
unfavorable interaction between medications, allergies, intolerance, or
other side effects, because we endeavor not to treat a disease or
several, but just a sick person, suffering from diseases.
All the therapeutic progress rests on this
basis: We prepare our therapy chart from three elements: a very tight
questionnaire (covering living habits and personal background), an
objective physical examination, laboratory results, and consultations
obtained with specialists. From the start, we try never to lose sight of
the entirety of the sick person. This holistic progress deepens then
in research for the causes rather than the relief of symptoms. We then
compose a personal therapy chart of multiple medications; a process made
possible because of the tiny doses used. We open the cells’ door of
our patient with insulin, then we treat him with a custom made
medication. The results obtained in Mexico by the Drs. Perez father and
son, and by myself in Quebec, constitute sufficient proof that this
medicine is a break-through.
La Petite Revue: What does the College of Medicine say about
Dr. Paquette: I have notified and met with two committees
named by the College, because I do not have anything to hide. Moreover,
it is the duty of any doctor to inform his colleagues of all new
treatments of which he is aware. This medicine I am practicing is pure.
My diagnoses are built on the model of all the other doctors; my
medications are those of the official laboratories. However, I am told
that this therapy has not been adequately tested.
(I recognize that we have a lot of work to
do, but we do not have the means. This is why I have been asking
assistance since the beginning of my work.)
Also, to relieve the patient we do not use
any medicines (morphine, codeine, and anxiolytic). No one is
begrudging me anything, but one remains skeptical on this new way to
use the tools already known. I continue, for my part, to treat badly
stricken patients. I preserve all the case histories. I am proceeding
carefully and scientifically. It is at the same time an orthodox and
evolutionary medicine, but not revolutionary.
La Petite Revue: You do what all the doctors of all times
have had to do: to gradually seek the means of curing the diseases of
Dr. Paquette: I cheer all the experiments with heart
transplants. But it is just as desirable that medicine considers the
causes of so many cardiac discomforts. Often medical experimentation
works to repair the effects, but I believe that to attack the causes is
more advantageous for the patient. If I have perfected Doctor Perez’s
therapy, it is undoubtedly that, like him, I had in mind the well being
of the whole person. The ultimate cause is there: the individual
haloed by his own way of life.
Elsewhere the body of the individual is
fragmented; it meets a liver specialist, another for the stomach, the
digestive tract, head, lung, kidney, heart. The body is fragmented. There
can be harmful interactions not only of medications but also of
La Petite Revue: But you, too, arrive after the disease. How
can you empirically go back to causes that are necessarily antecedent?
Dr. Paquette: We have three treatments: A primary treatment
to detoxify the whole body, a secondary treatment to treat one or more
specific diseases, and we have also a treatment called tertiary that
consists primarily of prevention.
The primary treatment is identified as a
detoxification of the whole organism while tackling the emunctory organs
(organs that carry off body wastes) who are responsible for all the
chronic troubles. The secondary treatment looks after one or more
specific diseases. And the tertiary treatment in general adds a diet
accompanied by recommendations for the lifestyle. The tertiary treatment
has a primarily preventive objective; it tries to remove the causes of
possible malaise so as not to poison the body again. It modifies the
regimen of life and the diet that have led to a pathological state.
La Petite Revue: The increasing popularity of your clinic
must bring you more and more new or so called incurable cases, etc.?
Dr. Paquette: We do not work miracles on our premises. We
do not treat by trust, but in a climate of trust. We must be at the
same time rational and empirical. When a patient arrives, I first ask
him why he wants to consult me. It is the suffering and the fear, which
bring the patient to consult me. I know that. But fear and suffering are
only results. I do not want to practice a conventional medicine to the
point of being satisfied with stemming this suffering and this fear. I
try to see the causes behind the effects and the human being behind the
diseases. The technological performances do not interest me.
I may have discovered, with the possibility
of split medication doses, a softer medication at the service of a
medicine that has more respect for the complex laws of life. It is
the totality of the body, which is simultaneously involved.
Insulin-Cellular Therapy thus works simultaneously by penetrating each
cell composing this totality. Simultaneous intervention is the method I
am proposing to reach the basic totality of the human being. The
therapeutic simultaneity that insulin allows is perhaps a door which
opens directly on the essence of our suffering biological individuality.
A UNIVERSAL MEDICAL ROUND TABLE
the constantly growing health problems all over the world, and
faced with the multitude of options and therapeutic alternatives,
which are offered to the patients and are misleading them, I have for a
long time dreamt of a multidisciplinary international clinic
where would be gathered the most advanced medical techniques in the
world, conventional, alternative, or different, for the recovery of the
patient. This dream always preoccupied me, haunted me, fascinated me.
Would it be utopian? The utopias of yesterday are the truths of today...
Nothing of the kind has ever been tried, each
one being imbued of himself and in his own way of doctoring. Each one
wants to keep for himself his secrets and does not want to share them,
to discuss them with others, for fear of losing in the exchange.
Actually, it is the patient who loses.
The patients do not rest until--whether they
are millionaires or beggars--they find health. This existential crisis
generates within them all kinds of fears, phobias, apprehensions, in a
context which adds to their insecurity and their disease. Don’t we
create our own disease, our own cancerous tumor, our asthma, our
arthritis, our AIDS and what not, but most often in an unconscious way?
In this end of century when science, in all
its forms, reached the peaks of knowledge, the objective of such a
clinic would be to find the best avenue possible for cure or treatment
of the disease, by studying all the alternatives that are offered all
over the world.
For this, it would be necessary, that
each participant in this conference be ready to forget his ego, his
personal contingencies, his core of quite legitimate pride, his own
medical claims in respecting the other therapies, with only one
humane goal: to bestow upon the patient the best treatment currently
available and possible in the whole world, whatever the disease to
be treated and whatever the treatment offered, by medicine or any other
therapy, and whatever the country of origin would be.
What should count, all things considered,
in the treatment of a patient, it is not such medicine or such technique
which cures him, but the fact that he gets cured.
First, let us have an understanding about
cure: the term "cure" should be used only within the
meaning of clinical cure, because we must be conscious that any
patient said to be "chronic", will always remain prone to fall
back into the same mistakes, the same causes which triggered the same
disease process, the same problems, according to the philosophy that I
put forward in this volume. By the expression "clinical cure",
I mean the improvement of the general condition, with the disappearance
of subjective symptomatology (what the patient feels) and objective
(what the doctor observes), confirmed by the scientific data. After
which it is up to the patient to assume his own responsibilities.
The field of care to the human being has come
to the limelight these last years. It has become the biggest world
trust. It supplanted by far, that of oil.
What don’t we spend to make ourselves sick
and what are we not ready to pay when disease meets us at the bend of
With the arrival of Health Insurance--I
should rather say Disease Insurance, because it is the disease that we
seem to ensure--in the quite affluent countries who accepted it, the
mentality became such that all is owed to us, for the simple reason that
we pay a negligible part of it. We do not even think of contributing our
own money, even less to impose on ourselves some restrictions, some
sacrifices to recover health. We refuse to change the way we nourish
ourselves, the way we live, we think. We want to receive everything
and we want to give nothing in return.
It is by derogating from the natural laws
that we make ourselves sick. We try to get out of it on our own, we
ask advice from others, not always better informed, and we believe in
it. We neglect ourselves, we get a little information, we become
increasingly anxious and sick as the disease progresses, and
especially as the pain is being felt. We ask for anxiolitic and
We usually initially make the rounds of
conventional medicine because it is free. We run from one hospital to
the other, from one specialist to another. We submit to the pleiad of
old and new tests that "computerized" medicine makes us
undergo, one after the other, without forgetting the
"scanner", echography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance,
gallium, and what not?
We try such or such medicine because a close
friend told us about it or that we believe in it. We do nothing to
correct ourselves, the idea does not even cross our mind. We refuse
to "interiorize" ourselves and seek the why of our troubles. Then
comes the moment of panic.
There is a string of alternatives outside of
conventional medicine, which, let’s admit it, are gaining more and
more ground in the confidence of people and that on the global scale.
Patients have increasingly too much to chose
from and are too often misguided. Magazines, newspapers, shops of
natural products (which between us, some are far from being all natural)
abound of small advertisements, of small business cards from people who
too often are improvised therapists or specialists after having
sometimes received only some rudimentary training and do not possess the
fundamental basic knowledge. This is how many patients are diverted from
a more adequate therapy and are long in receiving the proper
treatment which they should have received at the opportune time:
that is very often prejudicial to them.
It is this ideal treatment that we must find,
honestly, by putting all the chances on the side of the patient, so that
he can come out ahead utilizing the techniques likely to change his way
of thinking and of living.
Sincerely and scrupulously, in a spirit of
fraternity and the most objectively possible, it is necessary that each
one puts aside his pride and prejudices, that he lays down on "The
Round Table" the most positive part in his theory, without engaging
into discrimination, criticism or rejection of other medicines,
techniques or therapies presented.
We need for that an unwearying honesty, a
strong dose of understanding, a very large broadmindedness, and
especially a very great love of humanity.
Perhaps ICT would have a special place to be
used as a basis for this multidisciplinary project on which can be
grafted most of the other therapies.
Current medicine, at grips with the toxicity
of medications, mainly in cancer chemotherapy, is seeking, at a cost of
billions, a technique able to overcome the toxicity of the drugs. This
technique already exists, I spoke about it in this book. We only have to
cast a glance very humbly, honestly, and without prejudices.
Let us be conscious that on this earth no one
cures anything, be it a doctor, a chiropractor, an accupuncturist, a
homeopath, or any other therapist.
I will repeat it, we are only pawns, quite
pretentious, on this great chess-board of life.
A MESSAGE OF LOVE AND
It is said: "As long as there is
life, there is hope!" with the nuance that it is never wise
to wait too long. The best means of fighting disease is still to
prevent it. One ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
This is what I sought to inculcate to you
throughout this book, while insisting, by way of comparison, on the
action mechanism, the anatomy and physiology of your body. I have tried
first to make you conscious of this marvelous body that is the
support of your soul, to teach you to respect it by not just eating
anything, anytime, and in any fashion. Aren’t we what we eat? I have
also incited you to respect your way of existing, thinking, and
behaving like a human being! Intelligence differentiates us from
I do not think that someone can reproach me
of creating false hopes. With a better understanding of your human body
and of the medicine that is here to redress the deviations, I have
proven to you that it is always possible to hope for what today seems
Of course, there are always some
imponderable! But we can always relieve, sometimes prolong by
improving the quality of life, and God willing and if it is really
wanted, to cure at least clinically. With the requirement, of course, to
change our way of life, of thinking, of being, of behaving, and our
THIS BOOK, FOR WHOM?
I was thinking about you when I wrote this
volume, about you that I have seen suffering, that I have seen crying,
about you who have delivered in my consulting-room the secrets of your
hearts, about the many I have brought into this world, that I have seen
grow, dragging behind you the hereditary tare (inherited undesirable
element) that I recognized in the lineage,
About you who lost faith in life because
health seems to have abandoned you at the bend of the road,
About you who feel lost because we have
nothing left to offer but an artificial, chemical relief,
About you who see the third part of life
dawning with a quite legitimate fear and a well founded apprehension,
About you suffering in silence, and hiding
behind your physical, emotional and moral pains so we will not see you
About you who do not dare to smile at life.
This life returns it well to you: She refuses to smile back at you,
About you the great invalids, spending the
major part of your time laid up, nailed to your bed that has become a
About you suffering of all these diseases
that I have brushed briefly before you and in which you have recognized
About you feeling deprived, lessened by your
physical problems that are rubbing off on your morale. Tell me? When was
the last time you felt really great... ? Has it been so long that you
don’t remember? What happened to the ardor of your youth, this
confidence in life that could have moved mountains? What happened to
these dreams of youth and ripe old age?
WHY THIS BOOK?
In this present work, I wanted before all, to
shed some light on this controversial therapy, still unknown in the
medical world, that is ICT. We cannot recognize what we do not know.
I wanted to bring my modest contribution to
medical science and awaken, God willing, the interest of the
medical society. May this book allow me to reach with these writings,
the key-men, the serious researchers in quest of truth, and the
legislator who has in heart physical, emotional and mental well
being. The individual, he who spends exponential sums, ($13 billion in
Quebec and $72 billion in Canada in 1994), to improve health in
decreasing quality year by year. It is not his fault; it is the people
who should be educated!
For nearly 20 years, I have been asking the
medical and governmental authorities that research be conducted on this
therapy, "which should not be rejected right from the start,
because it represents a certain value on the scientific level...",
as was expressed to me by the Official of the College of Medicine.
It is not in the bottom of the test tubes of
a laboratory that we necessarily find the truth.
When we work with life, side by side with
human beings for their well being, don’t we discover at every moment
some explanations more valid than a simple presumption or than a
scientific laboratory assertion?
I believe in being much closer to the truth
and life alongside the patient, who suffers and cries, whom I question
and examine, for whom I seek the physical, physiological, emotional,
mental and spiritual cause, putting myself at his service.
Even if one does not know the scientific
explanation of a reality, for example the sun, that does not mean that
it does not exist. The sun gives its light, its heat, life on the whole
planet. Even if we do not know very much about it, it does not prevent
it from being there, from shining, lighting, and warming us up.
The narrow-minded scientist does not see
electrical current passing, but that does not prevent it from passing,
to provide energy.
If there are still some noble-hearted men,
let them come forward. Let them at last provide us with the means of
continuing research to prove on the scientific level--the only valid one
nowadays--what our experience has already confirmed at the human level
for seventy years, in Mexico, Canada and Haiti.
ALL MUST EVOLVE
We must recognize that everything evolves:
This is life! The baby is not on the bottle all his life. The schoolboy
does not spend his life on the primary school benches: there is High
School, College, the University, Fellowships, the international
recognition which one can accumulate up to the grave.
The latest scientific discoveries are
continuously turned upside down and replaced. In the marvelous world of
electronics and data processing, someone said to me that it is
impossible to keep up to date. There are new gadgets coming out every
In medicine as well, the procedures do not
remain the same. Vis-à-vis the new discoveries, we are continuously
readjusting our aim. Everything is experimental, everything moves,
everything changes, all is motion, all is energy, evolution. What was
true yesterday is not necessarily true today, and what will be true
tomorrow will not necessarily be true the next day.
For my part, it is in the constant search for
an element of truth that I have discovered medical solutions to chronic
problems. ICT with which I have entertained you, upsets the data of
known medical science to date.
It offers an absolutely fantastic
experimentation field for the researcher who will look at it, with the
possibility of integrating into it the most recent data of new
discoveries. I am calling them. I offer to work with them for the
advancement of science. I am ready to treat some cases in their
I have simply presented, sometimes
astonishing but authentic and provable facts that can be vouched for. I
owed it to myself to raise the curtain on amazing facts that the
public has the right to know and that the medical world does not have
the right to ignore. I wanted to popularize these facts in a
language accessible to all.
All must evolve: ICT as well. But to do
that, it will cost millions of dollars we do not have. The therapy has
existed in Mexico for nearly 70 years, but for the same financial
reasons, it has not yet received the recognition of its country’s
This medicine brought back in question my
medical practice and my beliefs. I have delivered to you the fruit of my
research and my discoveries for the last 19 years.
I believe that I have contributed with my
limited means to the evolution of this medicine that I have delivered to
THE MEDICINE OF HOPE
I leave this book in heritage to my children,
my family, my friends, and my patients who have allowed me to learn it
It would be too beautiful if my compatriots
did not have to go into exile any more, to expatriate themselves to go
and be treated abroad by a medicine of their choice: it is
nevertheless their strictest right.
When MEDICINE understands that it is
not the disease that must be treated, but the patient who suffers from
When the LEGISLATOR finally opens his

what occurs in him, and when he becomes conscious and takes charge of
The asthmatic will finally be able to
The arthritic will be able to stroll
about without too much pain,
The psoriatic will cease suffering: he
will be able to be exposed to the sun like everyone else,
The migrainous will be relieved
without sedatives and will begin to live again,
The allergic will cease being
And what to say about the cancerous
patients, the AIDS patients, and all the others, without forgetting the
I wish that they will not need to wait until
it is too late to intervene, that they do not have to sacrifice their
life savings any more to attempt to recover health, that senior citizens
or those nearing retirement, after having toiled all their life, can
finally catch a glimpse of their last days with a glimmer of hope.
While we are still well, when the disease has
not yet met us, why not secure health rather than disease?
Since ICT does not treat the disease which
has not yet manifested itself, but the entire human being who will
suffer from it later, why not benefit from it as of now, intervening
before the disease settles in?
A true cure of detoxification with ICT, as I
recommend it in this book, every two or three years, starting at the age
of forty, would allow us to stem the disease and to prevent it.
With a serious study of your case, an
awakening on your part, an adequate correction of your lifestyle, of
your nutrition, with the necessary and proper recommendations, and an
intelligent follow-up, you could contemplate old age and retirement with
confidence. Isn't this somewhat the medicine of hope?
ICT represents in my eyes the rung, the giant
step that current medical science should have made a long time ago
towards the medicine of tomorrow.
Soon, I wish it with all my heart, this
therapy will be recognized in the United States: serious studies are
currently being conducted in a famous university.
This book is only an outline of multiple
successes, which have never been brought to light yet. I have reported
them with a real preoccupation of honesty for you who were kind enough
to read my book.
The gestation of this book draws to its end.
It has been a long 16 months, long especially for a man... . It was my
only way, I believe, as a doctor, to know what can be the pains of
childbirth... "of a book".
I worked with eagerness, day and night. I was
not the same man. Let me be understood and let me be forgiven.
Without it being necessary to name them, let
those who have suggested to me the realization of this book
and have assisted me, recognize themselves
and be acknowledged.

IT IS MY VOCATION.
