Brig. Gen. Donato Perez Garcia, MD
was the seed, the source, the discoverer of
IPT. In his lifetime his medicine helped tens of thousands, perhaps a
hundred thousand. In our lifetime, it could help hundreds of millions, perhaps a
First there was no IPT, and then, through his keen observation and miraculous
intuition, IPT existed. One man conceived it, birthed it, and raised it to
maturity, and energetically, openly, took it out into the world.
Few listened. The world wasn't ready yet. Science had no way to
understand his results. But lives of lucky patients were saved and
transformed. And most important, he passed IPT on in living form, through
the perilous, distracting, noisy storm of history, to his son Dr. Perez Garcia y Bellon 2.
IPT has been essentially ignored for three generations. The world must have it now.
The purpose of this page is to honor this man, to peer through the mists
of time to see him shining like gold in the gray context of his day, streaking through
history like a comet.
Read about his work and the history of IPT.
Let us marvel at the genius of this man. A being with incandescent
creativity and vision, and, like Nikola Tesla and Leonardo daVinci, far ahead of his
He started out with a traditional MD education, with specialized training
in surgery, dental surgery, urology, and gynecology/obstetrics.
He became the Medical Director of the Civil Hospital
the Director of the Military College Hospital. He was the personal doctor of Mexican
presidents Manuel A.Camacho and Lázaro Cárdenas. And he was very active
and honored as a military doctor during the Mexican Revolution, retiring with
the rank of Brigadier General.
And yet he transcended his specialized training and his
high status in standard
medicine. He set out on his own to found a whole new self-consistent system of medicine. Medicine that could do things that were so
unexpected, so unbelievable for the time, that other doctors could not even see them,
could not even acknowledge them.
From observing the reactions of his own body to insulin, he intuited --
correctly -- what was going on at the cellular level. Beyond the
science of his time, and still beyond the knowledge of most scientists to this
And he crafted these observations into a system of medicine
that can choreograph
the body's chemistry in the space of an hour --- to balance it, detoxify it,
open it up to the effects of medications in an exquisitely timed moment of
sensitivity, the "therapeutic moment", and then return it to normal at
a higher level of health. The most sophisticated kind of biological
response modification, generations before that expression was created.
Then he went on to explore the whole range of medications of the time, and
new combinations of them made possible by this timed medical choreography. He
boldly treated diseases and conditions that no one would imagine trying to treat
this way, not even in the year 2000. Paralysis of polio.
Gallstones. Ulcers. Even
In later years, with his son at his side, he investigated electrochemical
reactions of the blood, and believed that he could use them as a quick and
simple tool to measure the health of the body and to detect disease, especially
cancer. Perhaps in the years to come we will discover that he was
right about that, too, as his "Oncodiagnosticator"
is brought up to
date with today's biochemistry, electronics, and optics.
He reported his work to the doctors of his day, who heard but for some reason
listen. He traveled through the United States by invitation several times, demonstrated his successes
again and again, spoke to newspapers and magazines, wrote a book, made
documentary films. It was as though he was a time traveler that few could see,
few could hear, despite his most generous and focused efforts to make himself
and his more advanced technology available.
How I wish he were here, now, in more than spirit. He would love this
website. He would enthusiastically leap into the research, he would
passionately join in the teaching of IPT, he would be excited about taking IPT
to people in the farthest corners of this world.
Most of all, he would laugh with joy.
