Despite of the lack of interset and committment of the conventional medicine towards carrying out clinical researches on the possibilities of the Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) in tumor disease treatment, the method is increasingly and more widely applied in the practice of more and more doctors and clinics. Although the IPT efficiency is disputed by the cancer specialists until clinical researches have been concluded, the doctors practicing the method have no doubt whatsoever of its low toxicity and the improved quality of life of the patients.

Introduction

4 Introduction The method application in the Medical Center “Integratve Mdicine” practice goes back to 2006 and more than 650 patients with advanced metastatic tumors have been treated by it, the major part of these following the failure of preceding chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In spite of the advanced illness and failure of the previous treatment, there was a significant improvement in the quality of life and remission in about 80 per cent of the patients. Our experience from the IPT application undoubtedly allows us to accept the IPT as a leading method in our practice.

Our experience from the IPT application undoubtedly allows us to accept the IPT as a leading method in our practice.

5 Introduction During the last year we used researches of the genetic profile of circulating tumor cells in the cases where the previous standard chemotherapy had failed. Our preliminary results indicate that in these cases the treatment efficiency increased and made it possible to avoid unnecessary medical procedures. Wider researches allow the use of more precise and suitable nutrients and immune modulators.

Wider researches allow the use of more precise and suitable nutrients and immune modulators.

6 Problems Restricting our Therapeutic Possibilities Lack of sufficient information and cooperation on the part of the patients Lack of sufficient information and cooperation on the part of the patients The inability of some patients to change their life style and carry out the prescribed treatment within the allotted time frame The inability of some patients to change their life style and carry out the prescribed treatment within the allotted time frame Financial restrictions Financial restrictions Limited possibility of using efficient alternative methods of treatment, such as: ultrasound and photodynamic therapy, hyperthermia, highly intensive focused ultrasound (HIFU), the Coley vaccine and others Limited possibility of using efficient alternative methods of treatment, such as: ultrasound and photodynamic therapy, hyperthermia, highly intensive focused ultrasound (HIFU), the Coley vaccine and others

7 Possibilities to Combine the IPT with Efficient Complimentary and Alternative Methods 1. The holistic approach and principles when treating cancer leads to a great extent to improved results. 2. The overwhelming part of alternative and complimentary methods applied for cancer treatment need a longer period of impact which is insufficient in the cases with advanced metastases. 3. The Insulin Potentiation Therapy is the fastest, efficient and non toxic method for achieving remission, making it possible at a later stage to also successfully include other alternative methods of anti-tumor efficiency in order to increase the final treatment results. 4. The complimentary therapy within the interval is an important element of the treatment and selection of suitable methods and is substantively important to improving the treatment results. In the full remission cases the complimentary therapy could successfully be used to prevent relapses.

8 Possibilities to Combine the IPT with Efficient Complimentary and Alternative Methods 5. The complimentary methods improve the results of the IPT application, however, the treatment as a whole following remission also needs the application of additional methods, such as: intravenous therapy with high Vit. C doses, ultrasound photodynamic therapy, hyperthermia, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and others. 6. Well informed and cooperative patients, their full commitment to the treatment as well as regulating the psycho-emotional state of the patients are important elements of the entire treatment process. 7. Researches of the genetic profile of the circulating tumor cells offer new possibilities to increase the treatment efficiency.

9 The Medical Center Integrative Medicine Concept for Integrative Approach in the Treatment of Cancer Treatment is based on the holistic approach with leading principles: Interaction and cooperation between doctor and patient; Interaction and cooperation between doctor and patient; Application of suitable conventional and alternative methods helping the recuperating abilities of the body; Application of suitable conventional and alternative methods helping the recuperating abilities of the body; Not ignoring the possibilities of both the conventional medicine and the alternative medicine and not accepting indiscriminately the alternative methods offered; Not ignoring the possibilities of both the conventional medicine and the alternative medicine and not accepting indiscriminately the alternative methods offered; Paying the necessary significance of factors as body, mind and spirit in the progress and outcome of the disease; Paying the necessary significance of factors as body, mind and spirit in the progress and outcome of the disease;

Committing those practicing integrative oncology to the research problems in the field of CAM and the continuous development of knowledge and abilities.

11 Individual Cancer Treatment Program 1. Methods for specific therapy: Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT), infusion therapy with high doses of Vit. C, photodynamic therapy, hyperthermia combined with IPT. 2. Basic therapy: a) reducing the impact of the risk factors for the disease origin: Elimination of focal infections and inflammation. Elimination of focal infections and inflammation. Limiting the effect of toxic environmental factors. Limiting the effect of toxic environmental factors. Diet therapy Diet therapy Detoxication Detoxication b) Stimulating the immune system c) Regulating the dysfunction of different organs and systems. d) Regulating the psycho-emotional state of the patient. meditation, yoga, technique for emotional freedom anti stress therapy.

I.T., a male patient of 75 y. was diagnosed and operated in March 2011 of low differential ductile adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. Result from Surgery: when inspecting the abdominal cavity a tumor formation was discovered covering the head and body of the pancreas and ductus holedohus. The case was considered as inoperable and directed for symptomatic treatment. A gall derivation was performed.

19 Conclusion The results achieved from the treatment of more than 650 patients with highly advanced cancer, as of now, justifies our conclusions that the presented integrative approach with a leading IPTLD method represents a real possibility for solving one of the most serious problem in oncology connected with the toxicity of the standard chemotherapy. The results achieved from the treatment of more than 650 patients with highly advanced cancer, as of now, justifies our conclusions that the presented integrative approach with a leading IPTLD method represents a real possibility for solving one of the most serious problem in oncology connected with the toxicity of the standard chemotherapy. The case presented demonstrates serious possibilities for achieving a long term remission even when treating highly advanced tumors. The case presented demonstrates serious possibilities for achieving a long term remission even when treating highly advanced tumors. Undoubtedly, the merit of this approach in our opinion together with the treatment results is the significantly improved quality of life of the patients treated in the prevailing number of cases.
