LET US ESTABLISH
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.
PRESENTATION OF CASES
Of all the chronic respiratory diseases,
asthma is the one that holds for us, at the time of crises, the most
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

a single month. Awakened each night by bronchial spasms. Had 25 to 30

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

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

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".

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.
