Summary:  IPT has been reported to be remarkably successful in treating a wide range of diseases.   Based on this experience, we can project success for many more.  IPT's success with cancer is perhaps most notable.  But its successes with infectious diseases could have an even larger global impact.  And that is just the beginning...

IPT: a magic gun?

"These doctors have used insulin for everything,"     SGA, MD told me the first time I met him.  And he was not exaggerating.

       A distinguishing feature of IPT (insulin potentiation therapy) is that it reportedly works so well for such a remarkably wide spectrum of diseases, across the whole range of human pathologies.  Just four doctors have spent much of their professional lives practicing IPT and exploring its envelope of applications.  But in their lifetimes they have boldly tried IPT for more different conditions than most doctors ever see in their practices.  Early successes boosted their enthusiasm, and later successes increased their confidence.  And their results have been consistently good during more than 130 doctor-years over seven decades.

        In most cases, they have claimed, IPT has shown dramatically improved results, as long as there was already a helpful drug available that they could use -- and often even if there wasn't.    Even if a drug usually has harmful side effects in normal usage, IPT has seemed to make it possible to reduce the dose, eliminate the side effects, and still have the same or even better positive effects.

        Imagine a doctor who has always been looking for  a "magic bullet" for each disease he treats.  Then imagine handing him a "magic gun" (Dr. SGA's expression).  It uses regular bullets (medications).  But in whatever direction he shoots, these regular bullets have magical effects.   After he uses this gun a few times, will he ever want to go back?

        It is very improbable that any doctor will ever use IPT for all the diseases listed in this section.  Most doctors will choose their own specialties, although a few may choose to be general IPT practitioners.

        Browse this section of IPTQ, and you will see why Dr. Paquette called IPT the "Medicine of Hope", and why Dr. SGA calls it the "Medicine of Joy".

Panacea or just good medicine?   

        The apparent wide applicability of IPT has been a blessing for many patients.  But, ironically, it has also been a hurdle for IPT's credibility to overcome.  IPT is reported to work for just too many things.  Many people are very wary and skeptical of apparent panaceas.  The general feeling is that panaceas do not and could not exist.  In fact the word panacea ("cures everything") conjures up visions of snake oil and opium salesmen of the 19th century.  

        On the other hand, people have no difficulty with there being some things that seem to help in the healing of virtually all diseases:  rest, good diet, proper elimination, moderate exercise, positive attitude, happy social life, laughter, and, yes, breathing.  These things could be considered panaceas, although they usually are not called such.  It could be that IPT synergistically taps into a number of fundamental mechanisms of the human body, including metabolism,  blood chemistry, immune function, detoxification, and membrane transport.  (See How IPT Works.)   If this is so, then it would not be so hard to accept that IPT, like good diet and rest,  helps in the treatment of such a wide variety of diseases.

        The Drs. Perez Garcia do not claim that IPT is a panacea.  It only appears to be one, on first impression, because of its diversity of applications.  Not all of their patients have been success stories.   Diabetic people require special care based on experience to achieve good results.  People whose liver or immune system is destroyed do not usually do well.  Diseases for which there is not a known drug treatment (no matter how toxic) most likely will not respond.   Patients too close to death may not have the physical resources to recover, although IPT can reduce their suffering and increase their quality of life in the time that remains.  Negative patient attitude may reduce the success rate of IPT.   And some diseases and conditions are probably not appropriate for IPT treatment.  All these relationships will become clearer as more research is done, and as more doctors try IPT in their practices.

        In conclusion, then, IPT is not a panacea, but it does appear to be good medicine, and in many cases, better medicine.

Broader scope, not narrower

        I could have limited this website to just one or a few of the reported or possible applications of IPT.  And that might have made this story easier for many people to digest.  

        But I feel it is important not to leave anything out, even where there is just the slightest anecdotal evidence, even a single mention by one IPT doctor.  I have included applications where we do not know what drugs were used, or how IPT might have achieved the reported results.   

        Some of these applications may turn out to be impractical or invalid.  But if any of them turn out to be real and valid, the benefits could be very great, and I would not want to be the one to hide them.  I do not want to generate false hopes, but I also do not want to close any potentially fruitful doorways.   

        If someone does not try IPT for these applications, we will never know whether or not it will work.  And if the possibility is not mentioned on this site, it is much less likely to be investigated.   The doctors who have used IPT have reported that it is very safe, and that results are seen quickly if it is going to work.   So even if it is tried for a little while and does not work for a particular case or disease, little has been risked or lost.

About this section of IPTQ

        The web pages under this one cover the wide range of diseases that IPT has reportedly treated.  In the Possibilities section, there are also pages on diseases and branches of medicine that might reasonably be expected to benefit from IPT, based on experience with other diseases and conditions.  Whatever evidence we have is clearly cited or linked to, and speculation is clearly designated as such.

        This is not intended to be an IPT treatise or encyclopedia, although it might be the seed of one.  This is only a dynamic, preliminary compilation, with links to information scattered throughout the IPTQ website.  It is a work in progress.  The database will grow as we add more books and manuscripts by Drs. Perez Garcia 1 and 2, other material in the archives, and many reports to come.

        Diseases and conditions are organized here by type ( cancer, infection, veterinary, etc.) and by system of the body (circulatory, genitourinary, etc.)  More pages will be added, and pages will be expanded and reorganized as more information surfaces, and as we figure out better organization schemes. 

On the subject of speculation:

"Many of the views which have been advanced are highly speculative, and some no doubt, will prove erroneous; but I have in every case, given the reasons which have led me to one view rather than to another. . . False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long, but false views; if supported by evidence, do little harm, for everyone takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness."  
--- Charles Darwin
