Medicine of Hope, part 10


In Insulin-Cellular Therapy, what stimulated me the most are the often spectacular results that I obtained, for example:

This asthmatic Haitian engineer (see respiratory diseases, case # 16) who, the day after the first treatment, twice descended and climbed back up running the 23 steps of the clinic’s stairs, with cries of joy. The day before, very dyspneic, he had to stop a few seconds at each step to catch "his breath" again.

This old arthritic lady who had cried when cutting her steak for the first time in twelve years, and who took pleasure in descending alone the large staircase, she who could not even stand up on her arrival at the clinic. (See rheumatic diseases, case # 15.)

This other very radiant lady: "it is the first time in twelve years that I can do alone my ‘toilette intime’ (personal hygiene)."

This young asthmatic very happy to jump in the swimming pool from the second floor as he did it "before".

This emphysema patient who swam two swimming pool lengths after the treatment and who walked two hours on mountain trails. (See respiratory diseases, case # 6.)

This super-allergic lady who after 24 hours could eat poultry, use "nail polish and solvent" and, without respiratory problem take in a full breath of the odors of fuel-oil and gas from Haiti. (See respiratory diseases, case # 21.)

These two cases of psoriasis (see skin diseases, case # 6 & 7) showing after 48 hours an improvement of 60%, without application of pomade nor ointment and this other case with vitiligo (see skin diseases, case # 4) who notices that she can expose herself to the sun without redness or appearance of blisters.

These two hemiplegic patients who after 24 hours: raise, one his paralyzed left leg, the other the paralyzed arm and leg. (See neurological diseases, cases # 6 & 9.)

This other hemiplegic patient who walked so heavily in the waiting room, the day after the treatment, just for the pleasure of feeling his foot touching the ground. (See neurological diseases, case # 2.)

This electrician who leans over, imprudently in our eyes, from the clinic roof when just the day before, because of his vertigo, he was clutching the wire netting on the second floor for fear of falling (see neurologic diseases, case # 5).

This brewery agent, suffering also from vertigo, who on the following day, imprudently walks back and forth along the edge of the swimming pool (see circulatory diseases, case # 6).

These two hypertensive patients (see circulatory diseases, cases # 2 & 5) whose blood pressure was normalized in a few days almost without anti-hypertensive drugs.

This journalist treated for circulatory troubles who, the day after her treatment, while trying to read her newspaper, exclaims aggressively: "How it is that I cannot read with my glasses?" I told her to remove them. Surprised, she realizes that she can read without her glasses for the first time in 5 years.

This widower sexagenarian, treated for asthma and emphysema, very happy to have found... the ardor of his youth!

This 40 year old housewife, suffering from bilateral deafness for the last 30 years who recovers an almost normal auditory acuteness. She cancels the order for her hearing aid (see rheumatic diseases, case # 10).

This young Italian actress treated for viral hepatitis, who, to her great surprise, sees in a few days her vision and hearing improve and her cysts disappear (see digestive diseases, case # 3).

This old lady from Vancouver, diabetic and arthritic who the day after her treatment, was strolling as if she was looking for something, suddenly exclaimed: "There I found out: It is my ache I was missing!"

It is by sneaking away to hide my emotions and my tears that I reacted before these too eloquent testimonies. How many times I asked myself: "Is this possible? It is not the medicine I was taught at the University!"

Will you forgive me for having allowed the valve to open slightly?  
I had to tell you that.

Perhaps some patients might hold a grudge for my not having mentioned the extraordinary results they have experienced with ICT. I had to limit myself among several hundred of testimonials.

An old proverb:

Say no more: your friends understand you and your enemies do not believe you!



Dr. Michael Levi, an international celebrity in oncology, gynecology, obstetrics, allergy, immunotherapy, surgery, holder of 17 fellowships, director of the OBGYN hospital in New York, professor at Harvard University and Columbia University, is the author of a hundred scientific medical publications in France, Switzerland, and the United States:

"It is an immunological and biological treatment that increases cellular permeability and makes it possible to reduce the dosages. It is a positive contribution to medicine."

"ICT made a jump out of conventional medicine whose results are not extraordinary. It has a lot to teach to us who are regarded as the ‘aces of the scalpel’. This is why I have decided to help Dr. Paquette.

The Medicine we have learned does not produce these results" (see circulatory diseases, case # 3).

Dr. Augustin Roy, president of the College of Medicine:

"We cannot reproach you for doing what you believe best for the well-being of your patients." (See letter from Augustin Roy.)

"If a therapy that can potentiate medications existed, to the point of being able to use them without toxicity, it would deserve the Nobel Prize." (Declared in 1986 on Canadian television.)

The Honorable Doctor Albiny Paquette (my father), former Minister of Health:

"A medicine like ICT would empty 60% of doctors’ offices if you succeeded in having it followed by the lifestyle you recommend."



It would be marvelous to have such a clinic in Quebec. The patients would not have to wait any more for the extreme limit to receive your treatments. While waiting, I ask the Lord to enlighten the people who can help you carry out your project. You could not have done more for my husband.

Madeleine L.


It is already a little over eight month, that, filled with hope, I went to your clinic to be treated for asthma and diabetes.

I can only bless this day because my health has not ceased improving. The male nurse from the in-home care has re-examined me after nine months and said to me: "I do not have anything to do here any more." My glycemia had become normal again and I was not suffering any more from asthma.

Henry D.


Thank you Esculape (Asclepios), god of medicine, to have given to your beloved disciple, Jean-Claude, the sacred fire avant-gardist of the Insulin-Cellular Therapy.

A Group of Patients


Health is the greatest wealth. Few doctors can return it to us.

Ginette and Pierre S.


Life is so beautiful, when we are in good health. We thank the Lord for having met you: it is a success. You are a complete doctor! We do not need to consult several of them.

Lucien and Pauline G.


From you, I received what is the most beautiful and the best. I understood that it is only up to me, to have the will power. May Jesus give it to me.

Alice A.


Day after day, I realize the benefits of this cure.

Blanche L.


Great men are ordinary men endowed with an extraordinary determination.

Evelyne L.


Since my first ICT treatment, I have regained confidence in a better medicine.

Jacqueline B.


Thanks for knowing how to listen to me so well . Thank you for all the humanity emanating from you.

Gilberte G.


This year, we will be able to see the holidays and to enjoy them. Last year, on this date, we were in Haiti. God allowed us to find someone who helped us to recover our health.

Norbert and Adèla V.


In fifteen days, an extraordinary change occurred: I have recovered at least 60% of my capabilities. I was the happiest. It was a success. I follow my diet and your advice the best I can. I am doing very well and I can do just about all I want. I carry my seventy-six years very well.

Ulbad A.


You treat us with love. 

Jeanne G.


I feel very bad that we did not know about you sooner.

Mary S.


A chronic asthmatic, I was treated with ICT in 1980. My behavior has changed completely since. It has been fifteen years and I still feel the benefits of this cure.

Lucien G.


The cure was for me a resurrection: diverticula, circulatory troubles, chronic osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemy, sinusitis, all has returned to normal since my ICT treatment, ten years ago.

Lucie R.


Dr. Paquette has only done me good, physically and morally. I have heard only praise about him and his therapy. If I am still in good health at 63, it is thanks to his good care. At the age of 23, I was suffering from psoriasis. Someone tried out an arsenic treatment on me: I endured the effects all my life to end up with an arsenical cancer of the prostate... .

I will always remember this first clinic in Haiti. What human warmth on behalf of the doctor and his assistants. It was like a big family. This spirit was shared by all the patients, each one encouraged and helped the other. What a difference with a large hospital! On my return home, I did not have to reserve an appointment two or three months in advance... . Without the care that he lavished on me, I would undoubtedly not be on this earth any more... .

Gilbert G.


ICT is a simple, adequate way and without psychic trauma, unlike surgery under general anesthesia. Someone wanted to operate me for my ovarian cysts. That was no longer necessary: Seven years have passed since my ICT treatments and my problems have disappeared. I am very satisfied.

Ginette S.


My husband suffered from a cancer of the liver (80% affected in 1987) with metastases to the lungs. His ICT treatments gave very positive results. He has been able to go about his occupations for almost a year without suffering. Dr. P. does not only give hope to his patients, but he does all in his power to cure them. Having seen so many cures thanks to ICT, I recommend these treatments to those who are desperate.

Andrée M-R


Thanks for having helped me to live these five past years. After having had two infarctions, my heart was exhausted and so was I The ICT, the diet and the lifestyle are keeping me alive. I believe that without you, I would not have survived. I owe it to you that I am down here.

Alice L.


An ICT treatment, it is so marvelous that we must experience it to believe in it. It is like life: when you hear it spoken about, then thereafter it is your turn to live it. Consciously, I took the necessary step to come here to seek life, I mean the true quality of life. It removes from you the anxiety of getting old.

Laurette L.


My name is Mario D. I was treated with ICT in 1987. I can affirm that the treatment I have received saved my life. I was suffering so much that I resorted to drugs, to drinking, and was thinking of suicide. Otitides, sinusitis, circulatory troubles disappeared. I started to live from this moment on, because, so far as I can remember in my childhood, I have always suffered. I believe that is what led me to drugs, to drinking, and would probably have led me to suicide. The most marvelous of all is that I have been off drugs and drinking for eight years, and that I owe it to Dr. P. Thank you, Jean-Claude, for having given me back life. It is beautiful!

Mario D.


Since adolescence and even my most tender childhood, I have suffered atrociously from asthma. I have endured hundreds of crises, the deprivation of going out with my friends, the pangs of this pitiless disease. The impossibility to pet an animal, to put on perfume, to smell the odor of a flower, cigarettes, beauty and household products.

How many times have I been urgently transported to hospitals and there, didn’t I almost pass away?

After twenty-five years, ICT made me start living again. I finally could leave my prison. It is a rebirth of life, I am wonderstruck with it. I believe I have found the Fountain of Youth.

Isn't oxygen in the air free for everyone? But still it is necessary to be able to breathe it! I thank Heaven for having found health: it is the bigest fortune on earth. Thank you Dr. Paquette.




Dr. Albert Joannette: Lung specialist for 53 years at the time and deceased since.

During the treatment given in his presence in Ferme-Neuve, he stopped to greet my father in his residence of Mont-Laurier.

"Mister Minister (remembering his old title), I have just attended the application of a marvelous medicine. I assisted your son in his ICT treatment for an asthmatic patient. I hope not to close my eyes before seeing that ICT is accepted in Quebec. "

Then he added, in my presence: "Me, if I were Minister of Health, I would grant 10 or 20 beds to your son in a hospital, with a team of specialists at his disposal, to undertake scientific research and to treat his patients according to the principles of this marvelous therapy, as it is regularly done in conventional medicine."

Dr. Agop Karagos, lung specialist of the Laurentien hospital, Sainte-Agathe, deceased in July 1994.

"If ICT were routinely applied in lung cancer cases, a lot of non-operable cases could become operable and, in any event, the operation would be done under conditions much more favorable for the patient."

"Extrapolating, even cardiac surgery could find advantages there. With your treatment, a shrinking of the lesion occurs. A resection could be done with much more success than without the ICT treatment. If cancer cases came in time to your hands, it would be much more effective."

And, on another occasion: "To deny results, a counter-proof is needed saying, for example: ‘I have tried this therapy and the results are not proper’. However nobody has ever tested it, nor has ever come to this conclusion."




Autumn 1983, Collège Edouard Montpetit, Longueuil, Québec


Interview with Doctor Jean-Claude Paquette,

Director of the clinic of Pétion-Ville, Haiti.

"In science, there is only one road, it is the experimental method." Remy Chauvin, Biology Professor at the Sorbonne.

Medical practice, even if it is sometimes preferable not to underscore it with the patients, has an experimental aspect. This aspect is not only necessary but it constitutes the nerve of its evolution. In medicine, nothing is conceivable without experimentation. The reading of the history of medicine completely convinces us.

Doctor Jean-Claude Paquette, from Ferme-Neuve, has just published a booklet on a very new therapy he has practiced for 8 years. The quality of his process and the philosophy of the human person who accompanies it are worth a review in our questioning on life’s sciences. The interview that follows aims to sensitize us to the progress and the scientific work of the Doctors Perez and Paquette.

La Petite Revue: Explain briefly to us, Doctor Paquette, the bases of this therapy you are practicing in your clinic, and what it brings that is new in the field of medicine.

Dr. Paquette: First, it is above all a technique that has three marked advantages:

a) It treats the totality of the human body at the same time, instead of attacking the body, part by part.

b) It does not treat only the effects, but attacks logically the causes.

c) It does not treat diseases, but the human beings suffering from diseases, because each one is sick in his own way and can heal in his own way too.

It is a technique that is not so new, because Dr. Donato Perez Garcia Sr. discovered it, over fifty years ago. This technique utilizes insulin, discovered in 1921 by the Canadians Banting and Best. However, medicine has used insulin so far only as a hormone to fight the hyperglycemia caused by a deficiency of the pancreas. Doctor Perez had the idea to use insulin not as a hormone but as a medication.

Because, as I summarized in my book, insulin has two properties: at first to increase the permeability of the cellular membrane, then Doctor Perez has sensed that this exceptional state of the cell would perhaps, allow the potentiation, the reinforcement of the effect of the medications. Whence the second term, "cellular", qualifying the therapy tested by Doctor Perez, because it is on the level of the cell, the basal unit of the human body, that the bio-physico-chemical modifications of the organism are made.

La Petite Revue: And what are the advantages of this increased cellular permeability caused by insulin?

Dr. Paquette: It produces two synergistic and therapeutically positive phenomena: body detoxification, and potentiation of medications. The temporary hypoglycemia, i.e. the transitory fall of blood sugar, allows on the one hand a considerable decrease in the amounts of medications used to care for the patient. It also makes it possible to inject and use several medications so as to treat several diseases simultaneously. The results are more revealing. We wait for the "therapeutic moment" started by insulin to treat not diabetes, but asthma, chronic bronchitis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, migraines, certain cancers, allergic states, certain cases of slipped disc, and hemiplegia (paralysis of one half of the body).

La Petite Revue: This intervention on the whole human body to transform the whole metabolism before beginning to treat makes me think of certain alchemical medicines.

Dr. Paquette: You are right to underline this setting in awakening of all the cells of the body as being a new way of proceeding with tools already known. There is, for me, a kind of motto: "Non nova sed nove". "Nothing new, but in a new way". Insulin opens the gate of the cells for us. We have here an extraordinary working platform. This way we can sometimes decrease the doses of medications down to one quarter or even to one fifth. We also can, observation has confirmed, simultaneously treat several pathological states in the patient.

La Petite Revue: Without risk of interaction between medications?

Dr. Paquette: If it were about a simple technique, there would be reasons to ask ourselves some questions. But this is where the theoretical aspect of this therapy enters into consideration. Indeed, the latter is not only a technique but it is a medicine in its most appropriate meaning. Insulin-Cellular Therapy is defined as a holistic medicine. It is a medicine, which treats the human person in his totality.

We have had none, absolutely no case of unfavorable interaction between medications, allergies, intolerance, or other side effects, because we endeavor not to treat a disease or several, but just a sick person, suffering from diseases.

All the therapeutic progress rests on this basis: We prepare our therapy chart from three elements: a very tight questionnaire (covering living habits and personal background), an objective physical examination, laboratory results, and consultations obtained with specialists. From the start, we try never to lose sight of the entirety of the sick person. This holistic progress deepens then in research for the causes rather than the relief of symptoms. We then compose a personal therapy chart of multiple medications; a process made possible because of the tiny doses used. We open the cells’ door of our patient with insulin, then we treat him with a custom made medication. The results obtained in Mexico by the Drs. Perez father and son, and by myself in Quebec, constitute sufficient proof that this medicine is a break-through.

La Petite Revue: What does the College of Medicine say about it?

Dr. Paquette: I have notified and met with two committees named by the College, because I do not have anything to hide. Moreover, it is the duty of any doctor to inform his colleagues of all new treatments of which he is aware. This medicine I am practicing is pure. My diagnoses are built on the model of all the other doctors; my medications are those of the official laboratories. However, I am told that this therapy has not been adequately tested.

(I recognize that we have a lot of work to do, but we do not have the means. This is why I have been asking assistance since the beginning of my work.)

Also, to relieve the patient we do not use any medicines (morphine, codeine, and anxiolytic). No one is begrudging me anything, but one remains skeptical on this new way to use the tools already known. I continue, for my part, to treat badly stricken patients. I preserve all the case histories. I am proceeding carefully and scientifically. It is at the same time an orthodox and evolutionary medicine, but not revolutionary.

La Petite Revue: You do what all the doctors of all times have had to do: to gradually seek the means of curing the diseases of the body.

Dr. Paquette: I cheer all the experiments with heart transplants. But it is just as desirable that medicine considers the causes of so many cardiac discomforts. Often medical experimentation works to repair the effects, but I believe that to attack the causes is more advantageous for the patient. If I have perfected Doctor Perez’s therapy, it is undoubtedly that, like him, I had in mind the well being of the whole person. The ultimate cause is there: the individual haloed by his own way of life.

Elsewhere the body of the individual is fragmented; it meets a liver specialist, another for the stomach, the digestive tract, head, lung, kidney, heart. The body is fragmented. There can be harmful interactions not only of medications but also of misinformed doctors.

La Petite Revue: But you, too, arrive after the disease. How can you empirically go back to causes that are necessarily antecedent?

Dr. Paquette: We have three treatments: A primary treatment to detoxify the whole body, a secondary treatment to treat one or more specific diseases, and we have also a treatment called tertiary that consists primarily of prevention.

The primary treatment is identified as a detoxification of the whole organism while tackling the emunctory organs (organs that carry off body wastes) who are responsible for all the chronic troubles. The secondary treatment looks after one or more specific diseases. And the tertiary treatment in general adds a diet accompanied by recommendations for the lifestyle. The tertiary treatment has a primarily preventive objective; it tries to remove the causes of possible malaise so as not to poison the body again. It modifies the regimen of life and the diet that have led to a pathological state.

La Petite Revue: The increasing popularity of your clinic must bring you more and more new or so called incurable cases, etc.?

Dr. Paquette: We do not work miracles on our premises. We do not treat by trust, but in a climate of trust. We must be at the same time rational and empirical. When a patient arrives, I first ask him why he wants to consult me. It is the suffering and the fear, which bring the patient to consult me. I know that. But fear and suffering are only results. I do not want to practice a conventional medicine to the point of being satisfied with stemming this suffering and this fear. I try to see the causes behind the effects and the human being behind the diseases. The technological performances do not interest me.

I may have discovered, with the possibility of split medication doses, a softer medication at the service of a medicine that has more respect for the complex laws of life. It is the totality of the body, which is simultaneously involved. Insulin-Cellular Therapy thus works simultaneously by penetrating each cell composing this totality. Simultaneous intervention is the method I am proposing to reach the basic totality of the human being. The therapeutic simultaneity that insulin allows is perhaps a door which opens directly on the essence of our suffering biological individuality.



Facing the constantly growing health problems all over the world, and faced with the multitude of options and therapeutic alternatives, which are offered to the patients and are misleading them, I have for a long time dreamt of a multidisciplinary international clinic where would be gathered the most advanced medical techniques in the world, conventional, alternative, or different, for the recovery of the patient. This dream always preoccupied me, haunted me, fascinated me. Would it be utopian? The utopias of yesterday are the truths of today... .

Nothing of the kind has ever been tried, each one being imbued of himself and in his own way of doctoring. Each one wants to keep for himself his secrets and does not want to share them, to discuss them with others, for fear of losing in the exchange. Actually, it is the patient who loses.

The patients do not rest until--whether they are millionaires or beggars--they find health. This existential crisis generates within them all kinds of fears, phobias, apprehensions, in a context which adds to their insecurity and their disease. Don’t we create our own disease, our own cancerous tumor, our asthma, our arthritis, our AIDS and what not, but most often in an unconscious way?

In this end of century when science, in all its forms, reached the peaks of knowledge, the objective of such a clinic would be to find the best avenue possible for cure or treatment of the disease, by studying all the alternatives that are offered all over the world.

For this, it would be necessary, that each participant in this conference be ready to forget his ego, his personal contingencies, his core of quite legitimate pride, his own medical claims in respecting the other therapies, with only one humane goal: to bestow upon the patient the best treatment currently available and possible in the whole world, whatever the disease to be treated and whatever the treatment offered, by medicine or any other therapy, and whatever the country of origin would be.

What should count, all things considered, in the treatment of a patient, it is not such medicine or such technique which cures him, but the fact that he gets cured.

First, let us have an understanding about cure: the term "cure" should be used only within the meaning of clinical cure, because we must be conscious that any patient said to be "chronic", will always remain prone to fall back into the same mistakes, the same causes which triggered the same disease process, the same problems, according to the philosophy that I put forward in this volume. By the expression "clinical cure", I mean the improvement of the general condition, with the disappearance of subjective symptomatology (what the patient feels) and objective (what the doctor observes), confirmed by the scientific data. After which it is up to the patient to assume his own responsibilities.

The field of care to the human being has come to the limelight these last years. It has become the biggest world trust. It supplanted by far, that of oil.

What don’t we spend to make ourselves sick and what are we not ready to pay when disease meets us at the bend of the road?

With the arrival of Health Insurance--I should rather say Disease Insurance, because it is the disease that we seem to ensure--in the quite affluent countries who accepted it, the mentality became such that all is owed to us, for the simple reason that we pay a negligible part of it. We do not even think of contributing our own money, even less to impose on ourselves some restrictions, some sacrifices to recover health. We refuse to change the way we nourish ourselves, the way we live, we think. We want to receive everything and we want to give nothing in return.

It is by derogating from the natural laws that we make ourselves sick. We try to get out of it on our own, we ask advice from others, not always better informed, and we believe in it. We neglect ourselves, we get a little information, we become increasingly anxious and sick as the disease progresses, and especially as the pain is being felt. We ask for anxiolitic and sedative prescriptions.

We usually initially make the rounds of conventional medicine because it is free. We run from one hospital to the other, from one specialist to another. We submit to the pleiad of old and new tests that "computerized" medicine makes us undergo, one after the other, without forgetting the "scanner", echography, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance, gallium, and what not?

We try such or such medicine because a close friend told us about it or that we believe in it. We do nothing to correct ourselves, the idea does not even cross our mind. We refuse to "interiorize" ourselves and seek the why of our troubles. Then comes the moment of panic.

There is a string of alternatives outside of conventional medicine, which, let’s admit it, are gaining more and more ground in the confidence of people and that on the global scale.

Patients have increasingly too much to chose from and are too often misguided. Magazines, newspapers, shops of natural products (which between us, some are far from being all natural) abound of small advertisements, of small business cards from people who too often are improvised therapists or specialists after having sometimes received only some rudimentary training and do not possess the fundamental basic knowledge. This is how many patients are diverted from a more adequate therapy and are long in receiving the proper treatment which they should have received at the opportune time: that is very often prejudicial to them.

It is this ideal treatment that we must find, honestly, by putting all the chances on the side of the patient, so that he can come out ahead utilizing the techniques likely to change his way of thinking and of living.

Sincerely and scrupulously, in a spirit of fraternity and the most objectively possible, it is necessary that each one puts aside his pride and prejudices, that he lays down on "The Round Table" the most positive part in his theory, without engaging into discrimination, criticism or rejection of other medicines, techniques or therapies presented.

We need for that an unwearying honesty, a strong dose of understanding, a very large broadmindedness, and especially a very great love of humanity.

Perhaps ICT would have a special place to be used as a basis for this multidisciplinary project on which can be grafted most of the other therapies.

Current medicine, at grips with the toxicity of medications, mainly in cancer chemotherapy, is seeking, at a cost of billions, a technique able to overcome the toxicity of the drugs. This technique already exists, I spoke about it in this book. We only have to cast a glance very humbly, honestly, and without prejudices.

Let us be conscious that on this earth no one cures anything, be it a doctor, a chiropractor, an accupuncturist, a homeopath, or any other therapist.

I will repeat it, we are only pawns, quite pretentious, on this great chess-board of life.




It is said: "As long as there is life, there is hope!" with the nuance that it is never wise to wait too long. The best means of fighting disease is still to prevent it. One ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.

This is what I sought to inculcate to you throughout this book, while insisting, by way of comparison, on the action mechanism, the anatomy and physiology of your body. I have tried first to make you conscious of this marvelous body that is the support of your soul, to teach you to respect it by not just eating anything, anytime, and in any fashion. Aren’t we what we eat? I have also incited you to respect your way of existing, thinking, and behaving like a human being! Intelligence differentiates us from animals.

I do not think that someone can reproach me of creating false hopes. With a better understanding of your human body and of the medicine that is here to redress the deviations, I have proven to you that it is always possible to hope for what today seems conceivably impossible.

Of course, there are always some imponderable! But we can always relieve, sometimes prolong by improving the quality of life, and God willing and if it is really wanted, to cure at least clinically. With the requirement, of course, to change our way of life, of thinking, of being, of behaving, and our eating habits.


I was thinking about you when I wrote this volume, about you that I have seen suffering, that I have seen crying, about you who have delivered in my consulting-room the secrets of your hearts, about the many I have brought into this world, that I have seen grow, dragging behind you the hereditary tare (inherited undesirable element) that I recognized in the lineage,

About you who lost faith in life because health seems to have abandoned you at the bend of the road,

About you who feel lost because we have nothing left to offer but an artificial, chemical relief,

About you who see the third part of life dawning with a quite legitimate fear and a well founded apprehension,

About you suffering in silence, and hiding behind your physical, emotional and moral pains so we will not see you crying,

About you who do not dare to smile at life. This life returns it well to you: She refuses to smile back at you,

About you the great invalids, spending the major part of your time laid up, nailed to your bed that has become a wretched bed,

About you suffering of all these diseases that I have brushed briefly before you and in which you have recognized yourself... .

About you feeling deprived, lessened by your physical problems that are rubbing off on your morale. Tell me? When was the last time you felt really great... ? Has it been so long that you don’t remember? What happened to the ardor of your youth, this confidence in life that could have moved mountains? What happened to these dreams of youth and ripe old age?


In this present work, I wanted before all, to shed some light on this controversial therapy, still unknown in the medical world, that is ICT. We cannot recognize what we do not know.

I wanted to bring my modest contribution to medical science and awaken, God willing, the interest of the medical society. May this book allow me to reach with these writings, the key-men, the serious researchers in quest of truth, and the legislator who has in heart physical, emotional and mental well being. The individual, he who spends exponential sums, ($13 billion in Quebec and $72 billion in Canada in 1994), to improve health in decreasing quality year by year. It is not his fault; it is the people who should be educated!

For nearly 20 years, I have been asking the medical and governmental authorities that research be conducted on this therapy, "which should not be rejected right from the start, because it represents a certain value on the scientific level...", as was expressed to me by the Official of the College of Medicine.

It is not in the bottom of the test tubes of a laboratory that we necessarily find the truth.

When we work with life, side by side with human beings for their well being, don’t we discover at every moment some explanations more valid than a simple presumption or than a scientific laboratory assertion?

I believe in being much closer to the truth and life alongside the patient, who suffers and cries, whom I question and examine, for whom I seek the physical, physiological, emotional, mental and spiritual cause, putting myself at his service.

Even if one does not know the scientific explanation of a reality, for example the sun, that does not mean that it does not exist. The sun gives its light, its heat, life on the whole planet. Even if we do not know very much about it, it does not prevent it from being there, from shining, lighting, and warming us up.

The narrow-minded scientist does not see electrical current passing, but that does not prevent it from passing, to provide energy.

If there are still some noble-hearted men, let them come forward. Let them at last provide us with the means of continuing research to prove on the scientific level--the only valid one nowadays--what our experience has already confirmed at the human level for seventy years, in Mexico, Canada and Haiti.


We must recognize that everything evolves: This is life! The baby is not on the bottle all his life. The schoolboy does not spend his life on the primary school benches: there is High School, College, the University, Fellowships, the international recognition which one can accumulate up to the grave.

The latest scientific discoveries are continuously turned upside down and replaced. In the marvelous world of electronics and data processing, someone said to me that it is impossible to keep up to date. There are new gadgets coming out every six days.

In medicine as well, the procedures do not remain the same. Vis-à-vis the new discoveries, we are continuously readjusting our aim. Everything is experimental, everything moves, everything changes, all is motion, all is energy, evolution. What was true yesterday is not necessarily true today, and what will be true tomorrow will not necessarily be true the next day.

For my part, it is in the constant search for an element of truth that I have discovered medical solutions to chronic problems. ICT with which I have entertained you, upsets the data of known medical science to date.

It offers an absolutely fantastic experimentation field for the researcher who will look at it, with the possibility of integrating into it the most recent data of new discoveries. I am calling them. I offer to work with them for the advancement of science. I am ready to treat some cases in their presence.

I have simply presented, sometimes astonishing but authentic and provable facts that can be vouched for. I owed it to myself to raise the curtain on amazing facts that the public has the right to know and that the medical world does not have the right to ignore. I wanted to popularize these facts in a language accessible to all.

All must evolve: ICT as well. But to do that, it will cost millions of dollars we do not have. The therapy has existed in Mexico for nearly 70 years, but for the same financial reasons, it has not yet received the recognition of its country’s medical establishment.

This medicine brought back in question my medical practice and my beliefs. I have delivered to you the fruit of my research and my discoveries for the last 19 years.

I believe that I have contributed with my limited means to the evolution of this medicine that I have delivered to you naked.


I leave this book in heritage to my children, my family, my friends, and my patients who have allowed me to learn it all.

It would be too beautiful if my compatriots did not have to go into exile any more, to expatriate themselves to go and be treated abroad by a medicine of their choice: it is nevertheless their strictest right.


When MEDICINE understands that it is not the disease that must be treated, but the patient who suffers from it,

When the LEGISLATOR finally opens his eyes,

When the PATIENT better understands what occurs in him, and when he becomes conscious and takes charge of himself,



The asthmatic will finally be able to breathe,

The arthritic will be able to stroll about without too much pain,

The psoriatic will cease suffering: he will be able to be exposed to the sun like everyone else,

The migrainous will be relieved without sedatives and will begin to live again,

The allergic will cease being dependent,

And what to say about the cancerous patients, the AIDS patients, and all the others, without forgetting the Streptococcus "man-eater"?

I wish that they will not need to wait until it is too late to intervene, that they do not have to sacrifice their life savings any more to attempt to recover health, that senior citizens or those nearing retirement, after having toiled all their life, can finally catch a glimpse of their last days with a glimmer of hope.

While we are still well, when the disease has not yet met us, why not secure health rather than disease?

Since ICT does not treat the disease which has not yet manifested itself, but the entire human being who will suffer from it later, why not benefit from it as of now, intervening before the disease settles in?

A true cure of detoxification with ICT, as I recommend it in this book, every two or three years, starting at the age of forty, would allow us to stem the disease and to prevent it.

With a serious study of your case, an awakening on your part, an adequate correction of your lifestyle, of your nutrition, with the necessary and proper recommendations, and an intelligent follow-up, you could contemplate old age and retirement with confidence. Isn't this somewhat the medicine of hope?

ICT represents in my eyes the rung, the giant step that current medical science should have made a long time ago towards the medicine of tomorrow.

Soon, I wish it with all my heart, this therapy will be recognized in the United States: serious studies are currently being conducted in a famous university.

This book is only an outline of multiple successes, which have never been brought to light yet. I have reported them with a real preoccupation of honesty for you who were kind enough to read my book.



The gestation of this book draws to its end. It has been a long 16 months, long especially for a man... . It was my only way, I believe, as a doctor, to know what can be the pains of childbirth... "of a book".

I worked with eagerness, day and night. I was not the same man. Let me be understood and let me be forgiven.

Without it being necessary to name them, let those who have suggested to me the realization of this book and have assisted me, recognize themselves and be acknowledged.
