Insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) is also referred to as low dose chemotherapy. It is currently being studied as a safe way to treat cancer. It has found to be effective against lung cancer, colon cancer, and other types of cancer.
One article (1) discussed IPT and the treatment of cancer. It noted that this alternative medical treatment for cancer was able to fight cancer without damaging other normal cells. There is no nausea, liver damage, or hair loss seen in this form of therapy. IPT uses the body’s own insulin to fight cancer.
Cancer cells have 10-20 times the number of insulin receptors on their cell surface when compared to normal cells. Chemotherapy in low doses are given along with sugar, the body’s insulin kills the cancer cells, leaving normal cells untouched.
