Future Possibilities and Speculations about IPT
by Chris Duffield

As doctors get to know IPT better, I think it is likely that this protocol will be adopted or modified for use in emergency situations.  Patients are often hooked up to an IV bag anyway.  Why not give them a little insulin, wait, and give some glucose along with IV medications?  Here are some of the applications I foresee:

  1. Poisoning.  This could be for heavy metals, drug overdose (e.g. beta blockers), and maybe even snake or insect bites (IPT could help deliver anti-venom to affected areas and reduce swelling). (See Poisoning page)

  2. Heatstroke and shock.  IPT could help the body absorb electrolytes and water faster, and balance blood chemistry.

  3. Skin trauma, burns, gangrene, frostbite.  (See Skin page.)  Faster healing, reduced inflammation and pain.

  4. Reattachment of severed appendages.  Faster healing, reduced inflammation and pain, angiogenesis.  Stem cell stimulation?

  5. Heart attacks.  (See Cardiovascular page)  Increased permeability of cell membranes, increased transport of nutrients and waste, improved oxygen delivery, normalized blood chemistry, preservation of circulation-starved cells, faster healing response, reduced inflammation.  While IPT has been shown to have rapid beneficial effects on chronic cardiovascular conditions, it may also be found to help in the acute phase.

  6. Strokes.  (See Stroke/Paralysis page)  IPT has been shown to have rapid and profound beneficial effects on chronic paralysis and other deficits caused by strokes.  It may also be found to help in the acute phase.  As for heart attacks, IPT may provide increased permeability of cell membranes in the brain, increased transport of nutrients and waste, improved circulation, normalized blood chemistry, reduced inflammation and swelling, preservation of oxygen-starved cells, and faster healing response due to stimulation of stem cells, myelination, and other healing and regeneration mechanisms.

  7. Spinal Cord & Brain injury.  (See Spinal Injury page)  I do not know of any cases of IPT being applied to these injuries in either the acute phase or in the aftermath.  But I think its application in treatment of stroke-related paralysis, and its functions in treating other parts of the body, suggest that IPT may eventually find great utility for treating spinal cord and brain injuries.  If IPT can reduce swelling and inflammation, that will be a great start, especially in the acute phase.  If it succeeds in slowing or stopping cell death, and in stimulating cell regrowth and perhaps even stem cell proliferation and differentiation, then IPT could play a key role in minimizing damage from these injuries, and in promoting healing and regeneration.

  8. Gastrointestinal and Hepato-biliary distress.  As Dr. Perez Garcia 1 showed some 60 years ago, IPT can provide quick and effective relief and healing, without surgery,  in cases of ulcers with pyloric stenosis, appendicitis, and gallstones.  (See Digestive pages.)   This process could be started in the ambulance or  the emergency room, and completed in a hospital room.  Or it could all be done in the field, away from surgeons and hospitals, on expeditions or in space, or on a battlefield.

  9. Fractures.  Rapid and efficient delivery of antibiotics to avoid infection.  Stimulation of fibroblasts and osteocytes to begin healing the break faster.

  10. Respiratory distress.  IPT has demonstrated remarkable speed and effectiveness in treating respiratory conditions, from allergic asthma to emphysema.  Such treatment could begin in the emergency room.  (See Respiratory page.)

I am sure that emergency physicians, once they are familiar with IPT as a marvelous tool, will find many other uses.
