Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

How Insulin Potentiation Therapy Works

Insulin potentiation therapy is an alternative treatment for forms of cancer that is intended as an adjunct therapy to be used in conjunction with other treatments for managing chronic diseases. Initial clinical trials suggest that hormone insulin helps to make cancer cell membranes more permeable because cancerous cells are believed to have more insulin receptors than normal cells. Activating the insulin receptors in these cancer cells theoretically makes it easier for certain medications to target this cell type.

How Insulin Potentiation Therapy is Administered to the Patient

Insulin potentiation therapy starts with administering the insulin hormone to the area affected by cancerous cells. After the insulin is administered to the patient, the clinician continues with a dose of other cancer-fighting drugs. The medical clinician will also usually inject some glucose into the system as a means of balancing out the rapidly falling blood sugar levels, a natural response to the sudden flood of insulin. The exact insulin dosage varies based on your personal health and wellness needs of each person.
