Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) for All Chronic Disease: Can Old Cranky Physicians Try New Approaches?

Dr Simon You

By Simon Yu MD

Let me reintroduce an old forgotten and neglected medical therapy called Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) developed by Mexican military surgeon, Donato Perez Garcia, Sr., MD in 1932. He was able to cure many medical conditions such as asthma, psoriasis, migraine headache, neurosyphilis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and some cancers. Time magazine covered Dr. Garcia’s therapy as Insulin Shock Therapy in 1944. Despite media coverage, his ideas were never fully accepted in the United States.IPT simply targets deep hidden infection and inflammation by using fast-acting insulin. You can read more about this on the articles page of my website. 

Most young physicians follow prevailing medical policy and guidelines. There is too much risk to lose everything and their livelihoods. Is there room for older, independent, solo-practice established physicians who refuse to accept insurance-driven models so they can apply their experience in clinical decisions – rather than using cookie-cutter, insurance-, pharma-, and algorithm driven protocols? They can be uncompromising contrarians, raising hell for their patients’ welfare, truly a rare or dying breed of independent, cranky old practitioners. I try not to be too cranky or too old; my mission is a search for new approaches, and help them spread.

Consider all the modern chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, Lyme, obesity, neurologic disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, many forms of cancer, and more. These have become a very promising growth industry for the medical-industrial complex, bigger than the military-industrial complex. Follow the money as the global population is aging with multiple ailments and medical diagnoses. Medical science, pharma and Big Money investors are betting on advances in Molecular and Gene Therapy, CRISPR technology, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for breakthroughs in managing chronic diseases; not necessarily in finding the cures. IPT may change the playing field from managing diseases to the possibility of cures if you incorporate dental, fungal and parasite infections – commonly overlooked underlying causes – as an integral part of medical therapy.

Most chronic diseases are not driven by genetics but by epigenetic changes resulting from underlying infections, environmental toxins and endotoxins, nutritional deficiencies, excessive calories, and overloading our main detox organ systems. Our current medical model rarely addresses dental-related medical issues and parasite infestations. We are blessed with an abundance of fake data, fudge factors and dogma in medical science. How can we seek out what is real and what is just more false, compromised data? Ask old timer physicians who do not take insurance, are independent, and not employed by hospitals. They will tell you how our medical system has become compromised, suppressed, rigged and controlled. One of the neglected therapies is IPT.

IPT was brought to the United States by a Canadian-American physician, Steven Ayer, MD in collaboration of Donato Perez Garcia, MD, grandson of original inventor of IPT. IPT has been combined with low dose chemotherapy (typically 10% of the standard dose) for cancer treatment as a safer, cheaper alternative to high dose chemotherapy. IPT can be also used as an independent Immune Support Therapy without using low-dose chemo by adding antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiprotozoal medications, and anti-inflammatory agents, to reduced the total body burden of infection loads and reduce inflammation. Some of the cases I have successfully treated by adding IPT as an adjunct therapy to reduce the total body burden of infections and inflammation include stage 4 multiple myeloma, lung cancer, squamous cell cancer of head and neck, and ALS. The 16th International IPT Conference in Mexico City in February will open the doors to new ways of diagnosing and treating patients. Being a cranky old physician, you can try new options!
