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”. It was further discovered that cancerous cells would take up a lot more chemotherapy medication if they were given insulin first. This discovery opened the door to a new cancer treatment and IPT was born.

How Does IPT Work?

During IPT treatment, it’s the insulin that opens the cell membrane, making it ready to take in any substance it encounters more directly. This opening of the cell membrane allows the chemotherapy drug to pervade the cancerous cell more efficiently so that it can be destroyed. The chemotherapy drug is what actually kills the cancer cells but it’s the insulin that makes the cancerous cell absorb much more of the targeted medication. Due to the dramatically increased absorption of the chemotherapy drug, this makes it possible & necessary to reduce the amount of chemotherapy needed. Reducing the amount of chemotherapy entering the entire body, leads to far fewer and much less severe side-effects to the chemotherapy.

Supercharging IPT Therapy

During the IPT therapy, while the cell membranes are open and more receptive, immune boosters, specialized IV treatment and detoxification agents are administered which will also directly enter the cell, helping to strengthen your body’s immune system & natural defenses. Your body’s white blood cells will be naturally stimulated, becoming stronger and healthier and this will further help to detoxify your entire system.

In addition to the IPT Therapy the doctor will implement additional treatment protocols designed to ensure the patient’s liver is functioning optimally and to make sure the gastrointestinal, respiratory, immune and excretory systems are all functioning well.

This treatment protocol has been perfected over the course of decades to deliver a powerful punch to cancer while being easy on patients. In fact, within the name of the treatment itself (Insulin Potentiation Therapy) the “Potentiation” part of the name refers to this ‘potent’ or supercharged form of chemotherapy which makes it possible to use up to 10x’s less chemotherapy than with orthodox treatments.

About Dr. Minkoff, Medical Director

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr. Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr. Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, 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. Dr. Minkoff is one of the most in-demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best-selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
