Dear Dr. Gardner,
First, I want to tell you that I really enjoyed your talk tonight, and I
look forward to reading your books. You have certainly married the two
worlds of self improvement and public service in a wonderful way.
Second, I promised you at the book signing after your talk that I would
share information about prostate cancer treatment with you.
It is my pleasure and my commitment and responsibility to be the only
champion in the Bay area for insulin potentiation therapy (IPT). This
is a marvelous medical technique that has many applications, prostate
cancer being just one that it works especially well for.
I have created a very large website of information about IPT that I
invite you to explore at your leisure: http://www.IPTQ.org
I want to tell you about IPT because you are a living treasure and I
would love to help you stay alive and energetic for many more years.
And I have personal reasons to tell you about IPT. My own father had
prostate cancer, and he died at age 70, not from the cancer, but from
the standard treatments (radiation and chemotherapy) that his trusted
doctors gave him. He chose not to try IPT (I wish I had pressured him
more), but some of his last words on his last day were to tell his
doctors proudly about me and IPT, in my presence.
In IPT, a small dose of insulin, followed after about 45 minutes with
glucose, creates a controlled pulse of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
which somehow makes regular drugs act like super drugs, and which
apparently triggers a lot of different healing mechanisms in the body.
In cancer treatment, IPT allows toxic chemotherapy drugs to be given in
about 1/10 the normal dose, while still working better than normal dose
without insulin, to give complete remissions to many patients, without
any surgery, radiation, or side effects. You may want to read that
sentence again. This simple modification of chemotherapy makes it into
such a powerful tool for gentle and very effective cancer treatment,
that you would think IPT would be quickly adopted as the gold standard.
But don't expect your oncologist to know about IPT. The drug companies
do not stand to gain from it (a 90 percent dose reduction, if you
recall), so the studies have never yet been done, even though IPT has
been known and available for 74 years.
Unlike most treatments, IPT was not discovered and developed by
university researchers or drug companies, but by a solitary military
(and later private) doctor in 1926. He first used it to treat cancer in
1945. Even though he toured the US demonstrating IPT several times, and
was in Time Magazine in 1944, his discovery was ignored, and he was
denied the Nobel Prize that he most certainly deserved. On my website
you can read the fascinating history of how this technique was preserved
by his son and grandson, and how today there are nine practicing IPT
doctors, including five in the US, with numbers growing.
Unfortunately, there is not currently a doctor here in the Bay Area who
practices IPT. (All it takes is a three-day course to get started.) I
have been trying to recruit one, but so far no luck. Perhaps you can
convince one of your doctors to get trained. Otherwise, if you become
interested in trying IPT, you will need to travel to Phoenix, Chicago,
or Tijuana. If it were me, I would go to Tijuana to see the most
experienced IPT doctor. I am actually trying to find someone to sponsor
him so he can move to the Bay Area to treat patients and to teach other
doctors here. I would love to get him to be at Stanford, if I can ever
get those people to listen to me.
I do not know what stage your prostate cancer is, or whether you have
tried some other treatments already. All I know is that the experienced
IPT doctors have said that IPT works best if it is the first treatment
to be tried. If it is tried after other procedures, it will certainly
help a lot, but a complete remission is not always obtained. If I were
personally to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, I would certainly give
IPT a try first, for a few weeks. If it is going to work, the results
should be blatantly obvious as tumor shrinkage within the first two or
three treatments. If it is not going to work, not much time has been
lost, and no damage has been done, and the patient can then go on to try
other treatments. Actually, in patients your age, I think oncologists
often decide to let slow-growing prostate cancer go without treatment,
so perhaps you are in an ideal situation to try IPT.
I do have another reason for telling you about IPT. I am just one
person trying to do something really big, and I need help with this IPT
project. I really need to find the right philanthropist to fund some
small, key studies that would break open the floodgates, and hopefully
to help me found a nonprofit organization to support IPT research and
implementation. And I need allies and friends and advisors. Any
advice, guidance, suggestions, or referrals you are moved to offer would
be greatly appreciated.
This really is a big project. If you look at my website, you will see
that IPT has been used with almost miraculous results for treating most
of the major types of disease of humanity. I think that just a little
bit of IPT research will allow us to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic,
herpes, hepatitis-C, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, and
even neurological diseases. I think it offers hope for better
treatment of malaria and other parasite diseases, and could even address
the problem of multi-drug resistance. I believe that the science of
today will find in this simple discovery of 1926 the key to unlock a
wide range of healing processes in the body. Including natural
regeneration of the heart and the nervous system by stem cells, which
are so much in the news these days.
I can't stress enough how big this opportunity is, how important this
work is. Millions of lives could be saved, and much misery relieved if
we can do just a little bit of IPT research. The drug companies haven't
done it. The NIH has dragged its feet for years. We just have a few
private doctors doing IPT, and then there is me, trying to do it all
from my little office, without funds or administrative
help. I think private money is the only way.
There are powerful hidden forces that discourage innovation like this.
I have told a lot of people about IPT and have watched their reactions.
Drug companies don't return phone calls. Oncologists back away as
though I am a crazy man. But who is crazy? They are the ones who every
day take their patients close to death with high dose chemotherapy, with
its devastating side effects. I think that as soon as one doctor here
tries IPT, the others will be so amazed at the results that they will
either have to accept and join it, or deny and fight it. I'm afraid it
could become political. And the drug companies might have their own
reactions. These are more reasons that I need some powerful allies.
IPT will shake the whole paradigm of medicine, leading eventually to a
huge improvement in patient care not only in the US, but worldwide.
I know you are busy with so many other projects. But would you feel
comfortable at least helping me with some introductions? You know a lot
of influential people. People will listen to you.
Whew, that is a power-packed email. I cannot afford the time and energy
to write very many two-hour emails like this. If I just wrote this
much 30 times, I would have a book. The most important thing is that
you now know about IPT as an option for prostate cancer. And you know
my website, where you can get more, much more, information. Please let
me know if I can be of any further assistance, or if you would like to
meet again in person to discuss this.
Very sincerely yours,
