Medicine of Hope, part 2



On December 30, 1977, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation of Ottawa presented on national network television: "The Story of a Doctor in Ferme-Neuve". This television broadcast of Jocelyne Soulodre had an impact everywhere in Canada.

The facts were presented in an impartial way, introducing a patient suffering from asthma and emphysema and another suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Both, after being treated and having previously consulted several doctors and specialists, were bewildered by the results obtained with the Cellular Therapy.

The president of the College then intervened declaring "that the pulmonary diagnosis of emphysema was probably wrong for the young 25 year old man, because it is impossible, he said, to recover from such a disease", although the diagnosis was made by a famous lung specialist with 53 years of experience.

I was then pleading: "The name of the disease does not matter, whether it is about emphysema or not. What is important is that the patient feels better and that he can return to work." I do not treat the disease, but the person who is suffering from it.

I also added that it is the duty of a doctor, when his conscience and his knowledge recommend a treatment he believes to be of benefit to a patient, to apply it. The first role of the doctor is to relieve suffering.

Dr. Augustin Roy, who was my colleague at the Laval University in Quebec, from 1948 to 1953, expressed himself in these terms: "Dr. Paquette is a humanitarian and inspires confidence. He is personally honest with himself; he is some sort of a missionary, of a crusader. He has remained the same, as I knew him. This therapy has not been sufficiently studied in recognized research centers." I then continued: "If nobody tries this treatment, when will we know whether it is good or not?"

On my return from Mexico, I tried out myself here in Canada the method, which I had seen applied and have studied over there. I must confess that the results are positive. The commentator finished in these terms: "And now this is where the Cellular Therapy is. The College only considered it on paper, and the experts having condemned it are the same that cannot help the patients, who turn to Dr. Paquette. The treatment exists. The patients state they are helped by the therapy, and the ‘Medical Establishment’ remains cynical."

"Nobody has proven the theory on which Cellular Therapy is based and, while waiting for that to happen, nobody will really know whether or not it is a medical revelation."




I admit that, by nature, I always liked difficulties. I took pleasure in overcoming them, to rising to the challenges. For instance, at Laval University, I formed a vocal quartet, the Four-Jean with three friends who had superb voices (Jean-Marie, Jean-François, and Jean-Charles) but no musical knowledge. I brought them into a contest and we won first prize at Quebec radio.

On the other hand, one Friday evening, I agreed to give a concert two days later with a choir that did not even exist. I gathered the twelve best voices of the city of Quebec. Only one rehearsal on Sunday morning and the concert was given flawlessly the same evening. Thereafter, we made a provincial round of fifteen concerts and we were invited to sing at the Petit Colisée of Quebec in front of an audience of 7,000 people. Nothing is impossible.

It is neither to defy the College nor to hide from it, as its members could think, that I decided to open a clinic in Haiti. It was a researcher of New York, Dr. Michael Levi a famous gynecologist, director of the New York OBGYN (private clinic composed of forty four doctors) who encouraged me to open a therapy clinic in Pétion-Ville, Haiti.

I held 50 clinical sessions where the patients were arriving from the four corners of the earth, especially from Canada, the United States and Europe. I treated there a patient from Manitoba referred by a European doctor, another from British Columbia, a diabetic, an American opera singer, businessmen from France, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, an old duffer of the British haute couture, a Spanish artist, a young Italian actress referred to me by doctors and writers whose names I did not even know.



At the beginning of October 1978, I went to New York, on his invitation, to meet Dr. Michael Levi, Professor at Columbia University, holder of seventeen fellowships in obstetrics, gynecology, surgery, oncology, immunology, etc., recognized as an international medical celebrity. He greeted me with much kindness at the airport, took me along to visit his clinic in Brooklyn, and introduced me to a few of the 44 doctors who were working with him.

This great researcher, always looking for a new medical discovery, wanted to learn more about Cellular Therapy, which already fascinated him.

It is thanks to him that the famous cancer drug, laetrile, had then been accepted in seventeen states of the United States. He had already reserved a significant place for Cellular Therapy in the basket of current cancer treatments.

A decision was made the very same day to establish a "Center of Cellular Therapy" in Haiti where research would continue under his supervision.

One of his former students, a specialist in allergy and internal medicine, Professor at the University of Port-au-Prince, offered us his collaboration: he was Dr. Serge Conille, personal doctor of the President of the Haitian Republic.

Thus one week later I flew away towards Haiti with a very charming couple. The notary Roger Munn from Buckingham was accompanying his wife suffering from asthma and arthritis. She was my first patient in Haiti. (See: respiratory diseases case # 16 and rheumatic diseases case # 13.)

For Dr. Serge Conille, it was his first experience with ICT: his eyes were wide open in amazement. He had been able to examine the patient before and after the treatment and had been able to verify with me "a fantastic improvement which exceeded the hopes of known medicine".



The spirit of research becomes second nature when a doctor of a distant region finds himself alone facing new problems or problems which were not sufficiently covered in his medical studies.

Thus I discovered in my own experience the use of Butazolidine, from the Geigy Company, in cases of phlebitis, hemorrhoids and thrombophlebitis. I was already using it for a good ten years for these cases when I read an American article declaring: "new discovery".

NB: This marvelous medicine has disappeared from the map since 1992.

After long researches, I had developed a technique to drain and treat varicose ulcers, the "bête noire" (nemesis or curse) of dermatologists. The patients came from nearby areas, even from the Metropolis, spent here about ten days, and returned home relieved and happy.

I remember on the other hand a case recalcitrant to treatment... . Each morning, the patient returned to my office with a wet bandage and a greasy skin. Only after about ten days did I understand the foxiness of my patient. A good believer, he had returned from Saint-Joseph Oratory with a small bottle of oil that the good brother André, a cousin of my father, had given to him.

This is also how I was able, stimulated by the spirit of research, to perfect the Donatian Therapy from Dr. Perez and discovered the Medicine of Hope: an intelligent approach to treat in a holistic manner the whole human person.



AIDS brought back to our consciousness the immune system that was a little relegated to darkness. Since its appearance, we now frequently speak about our autoimmune system, viruses, antigens, and antibodies.

Type 1 labial herpes, commonly called wild fire, is a problem as old as the earth. It is very closely related by its roots to type II genital herpes.

A few years before the discovery of the antiviral drug zovirax (acyclovir) in 1973 or 1974, for which a subsidy of $17 million was paid, I developed by myself a treatment for labial herpes which does not cost anything and which has absolutely no side effect nor contraindication.

A lady about thirty had been consulting me for the last 12 years for labial herpes. Three dermatologists and an allergist had not found any solutions for her problem.

Eager to help this patient, I pondered about it for a long time when the idea came to me that her blood contained antigens against which it was necessary to find a way to act. By injecting antigens, the system would probably produce antibodies.

I remembered having heard about hemotherapy, which consists in treating someone with his own blood, but I was completely unfamiliar with the technique. I then began with 1cc, then 2, then 4 cc, and I finally adopted the dose of 10 cc in my practice with spectacular results. I was drawing 10 cc of blood from a vein in the arm and injecting it back intra-muscularly in the gluteus muscle (buttocks), nothing else. The lesions dried out within 2 or 3 days and the pain disappeared usually the very same day. I have treated over a hundred cases.

As for acyclovir, an expensive drug with so extraordinary predictions, it has not solved the problem as anticipated. It does nothing but diminish it without ever solving it. The prescription is to be repeated monthly and it will be necessary to take it for life.

Occasionally, I meet former patients that I treated twenty or more years ago. They are very proud to tell me that they never had any recurrences.

This is how discoveries are made. I do not have enough experience on a sufficient number of genital herpes cases to affirm whether or not auto-hemotherapy (autohemotherapy) is effective, but I have the feeling it will.



Astronomical sums, billions of dollars, are collected every year worldwide for research, whatever the origins: donations, governmental subsidies, national, international, telethons, march-thons, cyclo-thons, organizations of all kinds and what not... ?

It is sometimes cancer, AIDS, allergies, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Friedreich’s ataxia, Alzheimer’s, muscular dystrophy, schizophrenia, epilepsy, hemiplegia, asthma, arthritis and rheumatism, migraine, psoriasis, Parkinson’s, vascular diseases, cystic fibrosis, Huntington’s and more.

With the crumbs of the hundred of billions of dollars collected and spent in subsidized research centers, lone researchers, all too often ignored, could also bring appreciable elements for a solution to these dispiriting problems, of which I have just enumerated a non exhaustive list.



The cures** usually lasted 14 days, and consisted of two major treatments based on insulin and 10 minor treatments. It is obvious that certain more serious or more rebellious diseases would sometimes necessitate more than two weeks of treatment. We cannot always correct in so little time a condition that took from 15 to 20 years to settle in.

But we always knew after the first few days if the treatment was effective, and in fact, it brought an improvement in more than 90% of the cases, stopping in its tracks to a more or less significant degree, the disease and its symptoms.

It is necessary to keep in mind that the majority of the patients who had recourse to ICT were patients for whom conventional medicine had failed or had not been able to stop the totality of the problems. ICT is also experimental just like conventional medicine, but it succeeds better.

**[Translator's note: "Cure" here is meant in the French sense of the word: A period and a process of treatment including hygiene and diet rules implemented during that period (typically two weeks).] See: How about the cure?



This clinic of a new concept reflected the picture I had always imagined of the ideal clinic.

Instead of austere environments not always hospitable of our hospitals, the patients found themselves in a splendid villa on a mountainside, in a fairy-like and enchanting decor with a panoramic view, far from the noise, the dust, the crowd, and the extreme tropical heat.

"This is a dream!" the patients would say on arrival. They were already beginning to forget their problems and their diseases.

The tranquillity, the relaxing surroundings, the courtesy, the smile "de rigueur" (compulsory) for everyone, the soft music, the swimming pool, the entertainment, the "downtown excursions with the doctor", at the market, at the beach, on the mountain, invited speakers such as Mrs. Margery Chamy, Professor in Science of life in the United States, all revolved on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being to start again a new life.

On the professional level, nothing was neglected: the presence of a doctor 24 hours a day, qualified nurses, gracious personnel, an experienced masseur, in house treatments, the availability of additional tests if need be, but above all, a more humanized medicine where we do not treat any more the disease but the patient, the person who suffers from it.



During the cure, no one was allowed to speak about his disease with the other patients: each one had enough problems of his own without being badgered by those of others. The watchword was given right from the start.

The only person with whom they were allowed to speak about it was with me, their doctor. Every day, I gave a small conference on a subject of common interest, which ordinarily ended in a forum. Sometimes I suggested to them to submit their questions in writing, which preserved anonymity.

Laughter was a must. A joke did not wait for another. It was somewhat the "LAUGHTER CURE". It is in the middle of bursts of laughter that for a long time I have liked to convey my messages. I can be as serious as I like to joke, this says a lot. I like to be serious without taking myself seriously.

In Haiti, one seemingly would have preferred that I do not stay with my patients in my clinic, a question of professional standing, but for me, the concept I had of it, was the opposite.

We must know our patients perfectly, see the way they eat, know their way of life, their mood, the way they think, the way they are, the way they entertain themselves. I wanted to be with them 24 hours a day, to reassure them, to be available, see to the management, the maintenance, the cleanliness, the purchasing, the diet, the outings with them, the organization of their leisure, and especially their well-being. I can say that I was there "full" time.

From the medical viewpoint, I must say that it was not a picnic... . Each case was re-examined each day, analyzed, modified, and well thought-out. I spent all my free time of the day and most of my nights thinking about the treatments and preparing them. Imagine for a while what this can represent, as a matter of responsibilities, of concentration, the number of working hours when you have up to twenty three patients at the same time. That happened only once. The groups were usually of 8 or 10. I stopped when I was completely exhausted and nothing distressing ever happened to me.




Medicine is not a mathematical science. In medicine, two and two do not necessarily make four, but sometimes one, three, ten, because each one is sick in his own way, according to his temperament, his family background, his age, his sex, his location, his reactions, his heredity, his constitution, his own auto-defense, his lifestyle, his customs, his nutrition habits.

Neither is medicine a science with drawers. There is not a custom treatment ready made for each disease. It is necessary to find one for each patient. I can affirm that in 19 years, I have never applied the same treatment to two different persons for the same kind of illness. I remember three cases of psoriasis treated the same morning whose treatments varied up to 70%.

One does not react the same way to the same trauma, the same infections, and the same drugs. It is thus necessary to know not only the nature of the problems, but also the individual who is affected. This implies a personal treatment appropriate to each patient. Often the organism fights back on its own: it has been said that it is 1,000 times smarter than any doctor is! Fortunately!

Non nova sed nove, it is the motto I had chosen when I was the mayor of Ferme-Neuve and it appears at the bottom of my village’s coat of arms. It means "Nothing new, but in a new way".

This motto applies curiously to ICT. We use the same medications as in conventional medicine, the best we can find and whatever is the country of origin. The administration of these medicines is done in the same ways: orally (by mouth), subcutaneously, intra-muscularly, intravenously, locally, vaginally, or rectally.

But the choice, the synergistic combination (a drug potentiating another), the administration of this medication as well as the new way to consider the patient and his diseases, all that belongs to a new technique in medicine. It is not revolutionary, but evolutionary.

When a new treatment in medicine, that challenges our vocational training, disturbs us, is revealed to us, which can, not only relieve but sometimes cure, we have a tendency, by mistrust or fidelity with the tradition, or fear of the authorities, to keep silent, to cover it with ridicule as with a candle snuffer.



Being the only doctor in the world who has practiced this therapy, besides the Drs. Donato Perez father, son and grandson, I will attempt to show it to you under various facets and various angles: they are mine.

It is indefinable because of its often unhoped-for, unforeseeable results. It is increasingly comprehensible, as one practices it. I wish the medical world would hurry and finally take a good look at this form of therapy and help us discover what still remains veiled.

It is a logical medicine based on observation and reasoning. It tackles the medical causes (which are multiple), rather than the symptoms.

There is always a subjacent problem, a psychic correspondence in any physical state, which settles down. With the patient, we try to discover it and to make him aware of his state.

It is an incredibly fast medicine, its effects often appear in a few hours, always in less than 2 days.

It is a multidisciplinary medicine, which accepts and refers to all the positive data of medical and ancillary medical science, to all techniques likely to improve the condition of the patient. Because the patient forms a whole, only one entity, in his evolution towards health or the disease.

It is a holistic medicine, which treats the whole being at the same time with its various problems: physic, emotional, mental, spiritual, hereditary, or personal.

This new global approach for the whole human body is very different from that of the many specialties of medicine, which share it piecemeal, organ by organ, system by system.

Our way of considering and detoxifying the whole body at the same time (we will come back here), and of treating several organs at the same time in the same treatment does not smile at the defenders of specialized medicine. The various specialties can only accept with difficulty that someone could meddle and succeed in their respective fields: Respiratory, locomotion, circulatory, allergic, digestive, genito-urinary, dermatological, neurological, or other, taken one by one or severally at the same time.

A chronic disease is usually never isolated: The other systems are generally implied in various degrees. It is what makes the power of this medicine of tomorrow.

It is an effective medicine that really treats the sick body all the way through, rather than insisting on making the apparent symptoms disappear. With the passing days, weeks, the effects are really felt and persist as long as the patient does not return to his old way of life.

It is a personalized medicine because each one is sick in his own way and must be treated by taking into account his own hereditary characteristics, familial, personal, allergic and nutritious or others.

It is an especially very human medicine, which treats patients rather than diseases, because it does not forget the human being hiding behind the disease, cuddling behind the symptoms, despairing, suffering and crying. It is a response to the cry for help of Professor Lebos who reproaches medicine for being dehumanized.

It is a simple medicine, so simple that observers refuse to believe in it, even if the results are there. Because they are there, really, and this is what counts. There are no miracles, but revealing results, impressive, often spectacular. There are some failures, but also indisputable successes.

It is one of the great medicines in the world, able to treat so quickly the organism as a whole.

It is a sure medicine which does not cause any secondary reactions (intolerance, anaphylaxes, allergies, or intoxications) and without iatrogenic effect.

In short, it is a cure of total detoxification, doubled with a specific curative treatment for each disease, whatever the number may be, and reinforced by a regimen of non re-intoxication.

Because if the patient continues to eat like a glutton, to drink like a fish, to smoke like a chimney, and to burn the candle on both ends, without modifying his scheme of life and thought, he will necessarily fall back in the same mistakes that produced the same diseases, the same problems.



May 14, 1977, I had the chance, good fortune, and honor to have a talk of over four hours on the subject of ICT with Fernand Seguin in his residence at Saint-Charles-sur-Richelieu. This renowned biochemist, deceased recently, recognized that this therapy had a stimulating effect on the immune system. The bulletin of the Corporation des Médecins de Québec (College of Medicine of Quebec) testified to it, in its edition of December 7, 1977. "It is very promising in the history of medicine," affirmed Fernand Seguin.

Being only a simple general practitioner, I had much difficulty grasping the action mechanism of this therapy, which I was practicing, and I asked him to enlighten me. Here is the explanation that he gave me:

"The administration of insulin causes a reduction in the concentration of the blood serum, which allows an exosmosis, i.e. a discharge of intercellular waste in plasma. In parallel, with the application of ICT, by increasing the molecular concentration of plasma, the result is an endosmosis, which explains the ten fold boost of efficiency of this therapy".

"Insulin, he specified, facilitates the exchanges between cells, makes it possible to drive toxins out of them and to allow the necessary medication to penetrate them restoring the balance."

He was saying to me: "I have the intuition, that we are very close to the solution current medicine has been looking for, during the last 50 years in its fight against cancer".

"Because when one does not die of his cancer, one dies of the secondary toxic effects of chemotherapy which can only use toxic doses."

"Radiotherapy, as you well know, burns the cells in an irreversible way and makes all new blood circulation impossible. As for surgery", he continued with a small pout, "it seems to have lost any and all respect for human dignity."

"The mechanism of hypoglycemia started with insulin, coupled with the administration of a medication at the same time as the hypertonic glucose, activates the speed of exosmosis and endosmosis. That makes it possible to notably decrease the dosages of the medications used. It would be very interesting to check in experiments the phenomena such as I understand them logically."

"By reducing the doses, it is logical that it decreases their toxicity, their intolerance, their side effects, their interactions, their risks of allergies, of anaphylaxis, their iatrogenic effects. Do you realize, doctor, he was saying to me, what it could bring to cancer treatment and how many other diseases?"

"You know that for the last fifty years, he continued, (I was reading it in an article by Peter Chodka), medicine has perhaps only made a 5% improvement in its treatment against cancer, in spite of the giant steps in the detection techniques?"

"You have the duty, he reiterated, to contact "la Corporation des Médecins de Québec" (College of Medicine of Quebec) and to inform them of what you have learned about this therapy. I myself, did not know it; THIS DISCOVERY, IT IS A BOMB, believe me it is what medicine has been seeking for years at the cost of hundreds of million dollars."

I informed him of my vain efforts to interest the College in this therapy. He appeared to be very disappointed in their attitude and promised me to take care of it personally. He told me he had a good contact at the College, with Dr. Augustin Roy.

He ended saying: "If one ever finds a drug which can enhance the other drugs to the point of being able to use them without toxicity, without undesirable side effects, that is worth the Nobel Prize". I wish that someone would be able to prove to the scientific community that insulin has this property and I have the feeling it will.

I remember having heard Dr. Augustin Roy make the same statement on television in 1977.

As for me, I did not discover anything but the existence of this therapy. It took me more courage than audacity and temerity to continue alone my research, in a remote corner of the country, and to follow the way dictated to me my by professional conscience. I could not accept in my inner self to capitulate to disease.

Recalling the concise sentence of Roosevelt on success, I also told myself: If nobody tries, we will never know.

I will conclude with this thought: There are people who went around the world to finally find in their back yard what they were looking for in vain.

The therapy is there! We only have to open our eyes.
