Dr. Perez Garcia 1 presenting his talk to the
9th National Assembly
in Mexico City,
Doctors attending Dr. Perez Garcia 1's talk.
In 1948, Dr. Perez Garcia 1 treated five
patients with pyloric stenosis (narrowing or blockage of the opening between
stomach and small intestine). In each case, the
disease started with gastritis, then escalated to ulcers, and finally stenosis,
a life-threatening situation. Surgery is still the primary standard
treatment for this condition. But Dr. Perez Garcia 1 used 90 units of insulin per
patient (a large dose by today's IPT standards), and large doses of an arsenical
drug. 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 this 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 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 of ulcers with antibiotics did not become standard practice until 1997.
Think of all the benefits to
patients that were missed because no one listened to this man.
Dr. Perez Garcia 1 is still ahead of even our time. Perhaps IPT
could make today's antibiotic treatment of ulcers faster and more
effective. And the potential of IPT for healing ulcerated tissues,
for healing pyloric stenosis without surgery, all so
clearly demonstrated by Dr. Perez Garcia 1 in 1950, has yet to be explored.
Today's medicine knows nothing like it!
Dr. Perez Garcia y Bellon 2
was, until his death, the only doctor with
significant experience treating ulcers with IPT.
He had a protocol for treating
peptic, gastric, or
duodenal ulcers in his
practice in 1975, as well as a similar protocol for treating
Three cases of peptic ulcer and five
cases of pyloric
stenosis are detailed in Dr. Perez Garcia 1's book Cellular Therapy. Original
