How Insulin Potentiation Therapy Works
Insulin potentiation therapy is an alternative treatment for forms of cancer. Commonly referred to as low dose chemotherapy treatment, IPT treatment 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 anticancer drugs and medications to target this cancer cell type.
With standard chemotherapy treatments, insulin is not used with chemotherapeutic agents, allowing for a larger dose of the chemo drug to invade the immune system, relay toxic effects, and destroy the body’s healthy cells. Because insulin can potentially help the chemotherapy drug better target cancerous cells more effectively and purposefully, a lower dose of the chemotherapy drug is required. Therefore, IPT treatment is regarded as a safer and gentler form of alternative cancer treatment when chemotherapeutic agents still need to be administered.
How Insulin Potentiation Therapy is Administered to the Cancer Patient
Insulin potentiation therapy starts with administering the insulin hormone to the area affected by cancerous cells. After the insulin is administered to the treated patient, the clinician continues with a lower dose of other cancer-fighting or chemotherapeutic 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 the treated patient’s personal health and wellness needs.
