      What is Conventional Chemotherapy?
       
     

    Conventional chemotherapy uses drugs to suppress growth of cancer cells, thereby relieving patients’ symptoms. Chemotherapy may involve one drug, or a combination of drugs, depending on the type of cancer and its stage. Chemotherapy can be used in combination with other treatments such as surgery or radiation to destroy as many cancer cells as possible. It is typically given as an intravenous injection or an orally taken drug and usually works well for some cancers such as testicular cancer, Hopkins and non-Hopkins lymph node cancer and certain types of leukemia. However, it may not be as effective in cases such as gastric cancer, advanced pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer. Conventional chemotherapy is notorious for causing various side effects including temporary hair loss, fatigue, nausea, pain, increased risk of infection, depression, increased sun sensitivity, numbness or weakness in hands, feet and limbs.

       
      What Is IPT Applied in Clifford Hospital?
       
      In Clifford Hospital, we apply low-dose chemotherapy in combination with IPT (Insulin Potentiation Therapy) in cancer treatment.
       
     
       
      IPT is based on the notion that intravenous insulin increases the effect of medications so that lower doses can be used. Insulin "opens the pores" of the cells throughout the body so that drugs can enter into cells more easily. The treatment features an innovative low-dose chemotherapy protocol called Insulin Potentiation Therapy that uses 75-90℅ less chemotherapy drugs than commonly used chemotherapy dose to destroy cancer cells. This low dose chemotherapy causes little to no side effects, such as loss of appetite, nausea, hair loss and fatigue, to cancer patients.
       
      What Therapies Are Used Along with IPT in Clifford?
       
      Non-toxic treatments including hyperthermia, medical ozone therapy, chelation, TCM and nutritious therapy are commonly applied to treat cancer patients at Clifford Hospital. These treatments not only kill/suppress cancer cells, but also boost cancer patients’ immunity and alleviate chemo-related side effects as well.
