         Five doctors have used insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) to treat thousands of patients, for more than 120 years of cumulative experience.  All of them have reported that this protocol has been completely safe, and under control at all times.  Not one patient death has been reported from this procedure.  This is a remarkable safety record.

         Glucose, of course, is a basic metabolic substance vital to every cell in the body.  So there is no toxicity there, when it is given at the right time and in the right amount.

         Insulin is a vital metabolic hormone in all human beings (in fact in all mammals), and generally does not trigger allergic reactions.  In this way, insulin is much safer than any other medication, even aspirin, which causes many deaths each year from allergic shock.  

        In IPT, a short and controlled pulse of mild hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is created in the patient.  Blood glucose, normally at 80 to 100 mg%, may drop to 55 to 70 mg% for a few minutes.  At this level, Dr. Perez Garcia 3 tells me, there is no risk of depriving the brain of glucose.

        The standard dose of insulin given to patients during IPT is chosen based on patient weight and condition, and works very well in most patients.  However, sensitivity to insulin can vary from patient to patient.  Rare patients may be hypersensitive to insulin, and may develop hypoglycemic symptoms more intensely and too fast.  Severe hypoglycemia, whether resulting from insulin hypersensitivity or insulin overdose, can gradually progress to coma, convulsions, and even death.  This is well known in diabetic patients, for whom this can happen in the middle of normal life.  But diabetic patients learn to monitor their own symptoms and take sugar when needed.   And emergency personnel are trained to administer glucose in case of diabetic hypoglycemic coma.  

        In the IPT protocol, patients are even safer, as they are under close medical supervision at all times.  Severe hypoglycemia symptoms are very obvious.  And should they begin to develop, or should mild hypoglycemia be developing too fast, the hypoglycemic state can be moderated or ended, quickly and decisively, by intravenous injection of glucose.

        Since IPT amplifies the effects of many drugs, there may be the potential of developing drug overdose symptoms if a drug is given at close to its normal dose.  That is why the IPT protocol requires that most drugs be given at a fraction of their normal dose.  IPT doctors report that side effects are usually eliminated at these low doses, while the beneficial effects are enhanced.  In chemotherapy, for example, IPT doctors report that normally toxic medications are usually rendered harmless at the lower IPT dose, while at the same time decreasing tumor size faster.  If true, this means that low-dose IPT chemotherapy is much safer, healthier, and more effective than standard-dose chemotherapy.

        Although IPT doctors today are careful to use small fractional drug doses, there is some evidence from the past that IPT may even provide a safety net against overdose of some drugs.  Dr. Perez Garcia 1, as he described it in his 1939 patent, used insulin to allow the body to absorb larger doses of the very toxic mercury and arsenic drugs of the day.  Up to three times larger.  Instead of killing the patient, these larger doses cured his neurosyphilis, without serious side effects.  More potential and demonstrated applications of IPT against poisoning, heavy metals toxicity, and even severe calcium channel blocker overdose. 

        There are many medical procedures these days that take a patient to the brink of death in a controlled manner, and then bring the patient back to life.  General anesthesia.  Open heart surgery.  Bone marrow transplantation.  High dose chemotherapy.  Radiation.  And more.  In comparison to these procedures, IPT looks like an oasis of gentleness and safety.  By comparison to other standard medical techniques, IPT is reported to be quite mild and health promoting, with better results, and with much, much less risk of death and complications.  Not only that, but many or most IPT patients report that they feel much better in the minutes, hours, and days after an IPT treatment.  What other major medical procedures can claim that?
