|Open letter to biomedical
the new world of insulin potentiation therapy (IPT). This is a vast
and barely explored territory. Doctors who have empirically explored
part of this territory have come back with pockets full of incredible
anecdotes. Anecdotes so good and diverse that people who have not
been there often think the explorers are not credible and may be
crazy. Yet researchers on the fringes of the IPT domain have found
many phenomena that point towards the actual plausibility of wonderful
things existing in this unknown realm. Still, none yet have plunged
directly in to see what is there.
The world of
IPT has many facets, each a potential hidden gem. If we believe the
anecdotal reports from 130 doctor-years of IPT experience over seven and a
half decades, we know that IPT works, and that it does great things for
many different diseases. A whole army of biomedical researchers
could explore this domain, and yet we are still waiting for one brave soul to
be the first.
discovered 72 years ago, and yet it is still considered radical,
different, thinking outside of the box, coming from out of left
field. There are barriers of skepticism, denial, not-invented-here,
no funding, no status, never-heard-of-it. All of these are
indicators of a new paradigm waiting to emerge on the other side of the
wall. Perhaps it is time to graduate from the stage of wondering if
IPT is real to the stage of asking what do we do about it?, and where do
we go next?...
Here are just
a few IPT research topics looking for new owners:
IPT and cancer treatment in animals
IPT and intracellular transport of drugs.
IPT and blood-brain barrier transport of drugs.
IPT and potentiation, targeting, and biological response modification in
IPT and blood chemistry modification.
IPT and gene expression in various tissues... What is going on?
IPT and arthritis: rapid long-lasting inflammation control.
What's going on?
IPT and stem cell proliferation: neuro, cardio, and other tissue regeneration?
IPT for drug transport into cells with intracellular bacterial or parasite
(malaria, tuberculosis, mycobacteria).
IPT and treatment of sequestered viral infections (HIV/AIDS, herpes, etc.)
IPT and more rapid treatment of H. pylori infections and ulcers.
IPT and rapid treatment of respiratory diseases
IPT clinical studies of any one of dozens of diseases.
And this is just scratching the
surface of topics suggested by the IPT anecdotes and the body of existing
biomedical science related to IPT.
How often do opportunities like this come in a
lifetime? What are you waiting for?
You are welcome to enter this website and
look around the world of IPT. It may seem strange at first. Be
skeptical and guarded if you must. But to some researchers this
might start to look interesting, and it might start to feel like
home. If so, you are welcome to take some seed ideas back to your
lab or research hospital, and see if they will grow.
When you are surprised by
success, let us know.
