This is one of several articles overviewing Ty Bollinger’s book CANCER: Step Outside the Box. You can get caught up by reading Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11, Part 12 , Part 13 and Part 14.
I.P.T. (Insulin Potentiation Therapy)
Believe it or not, this one includes the use of chemotherapy. But not chemotherapy that destroys your immune system, causes your hair to fall out, causes organ damage, or leaves you violently nauseated and totally drained—or dead.
A lot of alternative cancer clinics use this type of extremely low dose chemo. It pinpoints only the cancer, and doesn’t affect the whole body By using less than 1/10 of the usual chemo dose, the I.P.T. is very toxic to the cancer cells while reducing toxicity to the patient. This has been used successfully for over sixty years, without the danger, cost and toxicity of normal chemotherapy. I.P.T enhances toxicity to the cancer cells without harming the rest of the body. How good is that?
I’m sure you recognize insulin as the hormone secreted by the pancreas in healthy people and prescribed to diabetics who can’t produce it. It has a big job in the body. And one of the primary duties of insulin is managing the delivery of glucose across cell membranes into cells. Every cell in our bodies includes anywhere from 10 to 100,000 insulin receptors to open the cell membrane to allow sugar and other substances to get inside.
Ok, so what does insulin have to do with cancer? If you read previous articles on Ty Bollnger’s book, you read that cancer LOVES sugar. Plus, you previously read that cancer cells produce energy by fermenting glucose. In fact, the cancer requires SO much glucose that it’s “stolen” from the normal cells, starving the cancer patient.
Enter IPT to trick the cancer cells into believing they are going get their ration of sugar, but instead get destroyed by chemotherapy! With insulin acting as a strengthener (potentiator), the effectiveness of the chemo is enhanced—thereby less chemo is needed. And that can only be good!
With research, Bollinger found out an interesting connection between cancer cells and insulin—that the cancer cells actually manufacture and secrete their OWN insulin.
Dr. Stephen Ayre, an expert in IPT has reported that “Cancer cells get their energy by secreting their own insulin, and they stimulate themselves to grow by secreting their own insulin-like growth factor (IGF). These are their mechanisms of malignancy. Insulin and IGF work by attaching to special cell membrane receptors, and these receptors are sixteen times more concentrated on cancer cell membranes than on normal cells.
These receptors are the key to IPT. Using insulin in IPT, the end result is that the low dose chemotherapy gets channeled specifically inside the cancer cells, killing them more effectively, and with no chemotherapy side-effects. IPT is ingenious; it kills cancer cells by using the very same mechanism that cancer cells use to kill people”.
So, in an odd way, this cancer therapy actually promotes cancer cell growth!
Cancer cells are rapidly dividing cells. And actually, so are hair follicles and the cells lining the stomach and intestines. That explains why hair falls out and severe nausea ensues when regular chemotherapy is administered. The chemotherapy drugs attack rapidly dividing cells—but indiscriminately.
However, in a tumor, all the cells don’t divide rapidly at the same time. They “take turns” dividing. When insulin connects with IGF receptors, it causes rapid cell division in cells that aren’t normally in that phase. In effect, by stimulating the cells to divide, or grow, the insulin makes the cells much more susceptible to the chemotherapy.
Dr. Oliver Alabaster, MD, of the Cancer Research Laboratory at George Washington University has shown that insulin can increase the effectiveness of one particular chemotherapy drug, methotrexate, by as much as 10,000 times, thereby producing much better results against cancer.
But wait, there’s more!
Most medications don’t adequately pass the blood-brain barrier—including chemotherapy drugs. On his website, www.CaringMedical.com, Dr. Ross Hauser states “various substances can be used to optimize the cancer-killing effects of chemotherapy, in addition to insulin, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)….”
DMSO is capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier. This makes DMSO/IPT doubly good, ESPECIALLY for brain cancer.
The combination of DMSO and IPT cannot be done at home. It is suggested that you find an IPT clinic and request the addition of DMSO. While being extremely potent, this treatment would have no side effects because all the chemo drugs will end up in the cancer cells only.
IPT is definitely effective as a cancer treatment—with no hair loss, severe vomiting or necessary bed rest.
Needless to say, the FDA has given this treatment little acceptance—only as an “experimental procedure” and will not approve it. Not enough profit…….
Ty Bollinger includes information on what clinics, right here in the USA, offer this treatment, so I highly recommend the book! And, if you’re considering IPT, another book recommended is Treating Cancer With Insulin Potentiation Therapy by Ross A. Hauser, M.D. and Marion A. Hauser, M.S, R.D., available at Amazon.com.
