When I say "treated successfully", that does not mean cured, if it is not within the meaning of "clinical cure", as I repeat it elsewhere in this book.

I mean that the patients who suffered from serious illnesses expressed remarkable and tangible positive changes. I leave the reader to draw his own conclusions while reading the following presentation of cases.

Any honest and right thinking person will understand that these improvements should encourage the serious researcher to explore this avenue.




Of all the chronic respiratory diseases, asthma is the one that holds for us, at the time of crises, the most dramatic pictures.

From my 36 years of general practice, I remember with a lot of sadness, these asthmatics in respiratory distress who made me insane of despair and concern and who gave me some very unpleasant moments.

I remember in particular this young lady age 27, obese (207 lb. or 94 kg), on vacation in a small country cottage on Lake Major, 50 km away from me, in the middle of a forest.

A beautiful fall morning, her husband had come to invite me on a small excursion for partridge hunting and at the same time asked me to stop by his country cottage to examine his wife. She was in the middle, he told me, of an asthma attack for the last three days, and he preferred, without telling her, for her to see a doctor.

After lunch, without haste, I put on my hunter’s clothes and left, carrying my medical bag, some oxygen by precaution, and obviously my "28" gauge rifle. I killed a good ten partridge, on my way there.

Arrived on the spot, I entered the country cottage empty handed to size up the situation, but I grasped by a glance the gravity of the situation. The young lady was sitting on a straight chair, cyanosed, in intense diaphoresis (excessive perspiration), moaning and suffocating, supplicating me with a desperate glance. A friend of hers was at her side, powerless, distressed.

What her husband, who was not even back yet, had taken for a simple asthma attack, was actually complicated by a super acute broncho-pneumonia with a 106 F or 41.5 C fever.

Realizing how little time and little oxygen I had (only one liter) to save her, I administered the emergency medication to her and installed her more or less alone, with a lot of difficulty, in my Jeep to take her to the Mont-Laurier hospital.

I succeeded in returning to the edge of the forest. With three miles less to drive and a little luck, I could perhaps have saved her. I went to the Ferme-Neuve presbytery so she could receive under condition the last sacraments.

When an asthmatic dies in your arms in the middle of a forest, you get a better grasp of the tragic aspect and the consequences of such a worrying disease. You cannot underestimate it any more.

In my experience with ICT, I had the occasion to treat with a lot of success and with often spectacular results many cases of allergic asthma, chronic bronchitis, respiratory allergies, vasomotor rhinitis, sinusitis and even emphysema, a recognized disease of irreversible character but that I have been able to help in an evident manner.

The concise results of the following files were for the most part countersigned by the patients and can be checked with several patients and me. These facts are true and my professional conscience obliges me to notify my fellow-doctors who will read me, and the public in general.

I often had fabulous results; I was feeling overwhelmed and had a hard time hiding my tears. I felt people so happy expressing their joy to me. No matter how much I asked them to be quiet about it, the news was spreading from mouth to ear and the patients were flocking from all corners of the Province, other Provinces and even from abroad.

Businessmen came from France, Belgium, Switzerland, England, and Italy for treatments or consultation. I treated a young Italian actress, an American opera singer, a famous "haut-couturier" from Europe, heads of states, monks, television celebrities, patients referred by European authors, clairvoyants: They all are cases for whom the Therapy came to modify the course of their existence.


Case # 1: AH

Laborer, age 25, male

Diagnosis: rhinitis, rhinopharyngitis, chronic bronchitis, allergic asthma, and pulmonary emphysema for the last 2 years.

Laid-off, he must leave his employment due to illness. Major respiratory problems, so much so that the simple effort to rock in a chair makes him dyspneic (breathes with difficulty). Orthopnea (obligation to be held upright to breathe) frequently at night. Can hardly walk 15 to 20 minutes on flat ground. The circulatory system is seriously affected: palpitations, edema (swelling) on all four limbs, acrocyanosis (cold extremities) during occasional coughing fits, vertigo (dizziness), moderate hypertension, numbness, tinnitus (buzzing ears), dizzy spells. Also: nausea, biliary dyskinesia (bad elimination of bile), tremors, left shoulder arthritis and chronic lumbago. He is declared 100% invalid on October 5, 1976 by a famous lung specialist with 53 years of practice in pulmonary diseases, Doctor Albert Joannette of Sainte-Agathe.

After only three ICT treatments on the 12,19 and 28th of March 1977, the same specialist finds him able to return to work, signs a new medical certificate and inquires of me: He asks me what marvelous therapy could have brought so much change in so little time.

He even came to my place of business and sacrificed his day off to come to witness an ICT treatment given to another patient I had asked him to examine four days earlier. We will talk about it in case # 3.

As for the patient, he was later able to become a telephone line installer, and to play racquetball and hockey. This patient has been interviewed on Canadian television (broadcast of December 30, 1977). Also let us note that a few days after the first treatment, he was walking nearly three hours in the fog and running a thousand feet (300 m) in extreme cold. Two weeks later, he was traveling twelve miles (20 km) on a bicycle with his son sitting on the back seat.

Here are the two medical reports signed by his lung specialist before and after the treatment:

October 13, 1976: Mr. AH presents pulmonary emphysema with allergic asthmatic bronchitis (grass lice, house dust) tendencies with a 100% incapacity to earn a living. Signed: Albert Joannette, MD.

April 12, 1977: Since my pessimistic report of last October 13, concerning this courageous young man, his asthmatic bronchitis has greatly improved and the patient feels he can resume his work as of next Monday. There is currently no reason against it and I am personally very happy that he could do it. With my best regards. Signed: Albert Joannette, MD.


Case # 2: MG

Housewife, age 29

Diagnosis: severe allergic asthma.

Suffers from asthma, since age 2, to the point not to have been able to attend school until she was 14 years of age.

Multiple tests at the Lavoisier Clinic. Receives two series of vaccines for six years. Tries the complete spectrum of medications, including cortisone which she must stop because she was beginning to develop Cushing’s syndrome (disease connected to the gland suprarenal whose cortex--the envelope--manufactures cortisone). Hospitalized urgently on several occasions, up to 4 times in a single month. Awakened each night by bronchial spasms. Had 25 to 30 attacks and took 22 tablets per day at the time of the first consultation. Used an atomizer with isuprel and had approximately 300 inhalations per week.

From the very start of the ICT treatments, she spends 57 consecutive days without any respiratory discomfort and without taking a single tablet. Thereafter, her doctor notes a change of her rib cage and a change of her blood chemistry. I have never re-examined this patient again.


Case # 3: M-PL (Marie-Paule Lachaîne) (May 4, 1977).

Housewife, age 44,

Diagnosis: allergic and infectious asthmatic bronchitis, urticaria, and chronic rhinitis.

She had no appreciable improvement in spite of anti-allergic vaccinations repeated for three years. The attacks continued in spite of and between the vaccinations. For one year, she has from 2 to 4 attacks and takes up to 14 tablets per day. Treatment given in the presence of Dr. Albert Joannette lung specialist of Sainte-Agathe. Extract of the medical file (May 4, 1977): "Although the treatment was disapproved and warned against by three doctors who had no knowledge about the therapy I perform, I decide to give it anyway and this, in the presence of Dr. Albert Joannette who agrees and assists me. These three doctors are: Dr. X, specialist in ORL who says that only an inexperienced doctor could try to cure her; Dr. Y, general practitioner, who tells her that it is too chronic, that nothing can be done for her; Dr. Z an allergist forbids her the treatment because she can have a reaction and die there... !" The experience proved that it was worth it to try this treatment. Reached in March 1995, the patient has not had a single asthma attack for a good ten years. She did have to resume the use of an atomizer since.


Case # 4: JL

Teacher, age 46, female

Diagnosis: asthma and allergic bronchitis for two years, migraine, arthritis, circulatory troubles.

Has received the whole spectrum of medications without improvement of her condition. As of the first ICT treatment, marked improvement of her respiratory, circulatory, arthritic problems, and of her migraine.

Diagnosis: asthmatic bronchitis and emphysema for the last 22 years.

European patient forced in winter by the Germans to take an icy bath in a lake during the Second World War, in Russia. Later, he develops chronic bronchitis and emphysema. In 1973, he receives 18 acupuncture treatments without any improvements. Consults several specialists in Canada and the United States without improvements. Complains about almost constant pulmonary pains, and of intense dyspnea (difficult breathing). Cannot walk more than five minutes on a flat surface and must stop every twenty meters (66 ft). Difficulty climbing stairs: must stop at each step. Cannot raise his arms in the air nor even lift an object of average weight without dyspnea.

The day after his first ICT treatment, he is very happy to be able to walk for two hours on a mountain trail, in Haiti, then to swim two pool lengths: he had not been able to swim for 22 years.


Case # 7: ML

Retired, age 59, male

Diagnosis: asthmatic bronchitis last 20 years, emphysema last 5 years, gout arthritis, digestive and major circulatory disorders: cardialgia (pain in the heart), acrocyanosis (cold hands), dizzy spells, numbness on the 4 limbs, muscular cramps, etc.

Had to quit working 4 months before his first ICT treatment. Thereafter, he has not had any asthma attacks for 2 years. He accurately followed the prescribed regimen, but one year later, recurrence of respiratory problems. Confessed that he has neglected his diet and his lifestyle. Had to resume the use of an atomizer. Declared invalid because of emphysema.

He returned and consulted me in the Caribbean. The day of his arrival in Haiti, because he got a whiff of a perfume to which he is very allergic, he has an asthma attack which risks to cost him his life: heart failure, significant blood pressure drop, intense diaphoresis (abundant perspiration), apnea (incapacity to breathe). In spite of this crisis, the first treatment is applied three hours later. During the following days, we witness a radical change on the respiratory and circulatory side. After that he remains in good shape.

Patient hospitalized urgently at least five times at the time of asthma attacks. After her single ICT treatment, she retained the improvements for 12 years. I have not re-examined this patient since.


Case # 11: GS

Federal employee, age 51, male. Received a disability pension.

Diagnosis: emphysema for last 17 years.

Cannot walk for more than one minute and is unable to climb stairs without assistance.

Two months later, he confirms that he can walk a half-mile (0,8 km) without problems and that he has retained in its entirety the improvements of his first and only treatment. Patient was never re-examined.


Case # 12: CL

Student, age15, female

Diagnosis: asthma since age 8 month.

Hospitalized 29 times from birth until the date of her first ICT treatment for asthma. Allergy tests and anti-allergic vaccinations without noticeable improvement. Was able to spend her first Christmas home at age 6. At school, regularly missed three days per week due to illness. Uses up to 2 atomizers per week (300 inhalations per atomizer).

Coed treated in Canada with ICT. Lung specialist report: "I have examined the patient before the treatments and I have re-examined her after. I asked her what was her improvement ratio. According to my observations, in my estimation, I had fixed it in advance at 50%. I had based my evaluation on her physical examination. The ‘storm’ in her lungs had calmed down.

Before her ICT treatments she used one to two ‘alupent’ atomizers per week. Three weeks after her treatment she still had not finished one. It is thus a positive result. If she gets other treatments, there will be more improvements".


Case # 13: EM

Retired, age 68, male

Examined before and re-examined after three ICT treatments by the same lung specialist. Disappearance of cough, expectoration, dyspnea, the rale and whistling sound at auscultation. He could then walk an hour on flat ground, bathe, climb stairs without rest, and speak without dyspnea.

Lung specialist impressions: "There is a fantastic clinical change. We do not hear any more rale and the patient is very well. He functions well, without respiratory distress. On the radiological side, the diagnosis of emphysema persists."


Case # 14: PP

Real estate agent, age 45, male

Diagnosis: rebel chronic rhinopharyngitis of allergic origin since age17, respiratory fragility.

Allergy attacks increasingly long and accentuated at each season change that last sometimes more than a month. Consulted several specialists and was improved slightly by acupuncture.

Housewife, age 52, farmer spouse

Diagnosis: allergic asthmatic bronchitis for the last twelve years, migraine, arthritis, and circulatory problems.

Almost daily attacks in the summer. Must close all the car windows because of gasoline odor, hay, also at the gas stations at refilling time. Does not pass from one room to another without her atomizer. Dyspnea attacks turning into apnea and requiring many hospitalizations.

In Haiti, the day after her first treatment, she applies nail polish, smells the solvent, Lestoil, eats chicken, rides in the topless Jeep among gas and diesel fuel odors without any problems.

During a recent phone call, she stated she had never suffered any strong asthma attacks in the last 9 years. She felt in perfect condition for the first two years, but occasionally had to resume taking again a few tablets since.

Case # 23: JJB

Farmer, age 66, male

Diagnosis: emphysema for the last 24 years, serious circulatory and digestive troubles.

The patient having never been regarded as asthmatic, his emphysema has worsened so much in the last 12 years that he cannot any longer go outside of his residence. The neighbors believe his house is vacant.

He suffocates in the wind, the cold, in a crowd. While getting out of the plane in Port-au-Prince, he suffers a serious dyspnea attack because of the air propelled by the engines of the plane. It takes a good half-hour to calm him, by massaging and "tapping on his back" to get him to catch his breath again. He must cover his head to enter the clinic.

One week after the beginning of his ICT treatment, he climbs up with us on the highest summit of Haiti without any problems. He shows, after ten days, an improvement, according to him, estimated at 45%. The pulmonary inflation (capacity of the volume of the rib cage in inspiration) goes from 2 cm to 5.5 cm. He can sleep 6 hours instead of only one to two hours.
