Dear President Bush,
Congratulations on your inauguration as President. Now you have a
wonderful chance to begin some fresh initiatives for the benefit of the
people of the United States, and for all humanity. I have one such
initiative to propose.
I urge you to direct the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to begin
an initiative to study and implement the use of insulin potentiation
IPT is a simple change in standard medical procedure that can make
medications work much better. In IPT, the hormone insulin opens up cell
membranes and delivers medications better into cells. IPT also delivers
them into parts of the body that drugs have a hard time reaching.
IPT makes possible breakthrough treatment of many different diseases.
For example, it allows routine treatment of breast cancer without
surgery, radiation, or side effects. It also makes possible relief of
arthritis symptoms for about five years after just two or three IPT
treatments. It has also been reported to give breakthrough results in
treatment of infectious diseases, such as herpes, hepatitis, and AIDS.
And many other diseases.
IPT was discovered in Mexico in 1926, and has been tragically ignored
for 72 years. It was demonstrated with great success and publicity in
the US in the 1930s and 1940s, but nothing happened. Today, finally, a
handful of US doctors are learning the technique. There are five today,
and will be about 20 more later this month. Every doctor who has tried
IPT has raved about the great results. I have created a big website
about IPT: http://
Mr. President, there has been no drug company money to support IPT
research. And unfortunately, there has been no NIH money, either. IPT is
such a different idea, and it has such broad applications that it has
had a hard time getting attention. IPT has been presented twice to the
Complementary and Alternative Medicine branch of the NIH, but nothing
has happened. IPT deserves more attention than that. IPT is not
alternative medicine, but a better way to use the medicines we already
have. The only thing alternative about IPT is that doctors donít know
about it yet. It could be adopted very quickly, once demonstrated,
because it would not have to wait years for expensive FDA approval.
Countless millions of people will benefit.
Mr. President, please direct the NIH to investigate IPT more
thoroughly, and to allocate enough funds to support even a small IPT
research program. Thank you.
