Herpes and IPT.
One of the most remarkable successes of IPT is in the treatment of herpes
infections of all types. IPT is apparently very effective at clearing
symptoms of acute herpes infection. And of even more interest, it
also appears to be able to completely clear the body of persistent chronic
herpes infections. It probably does this by delivering an effective
concentration of antiviral drugs into normally inaccessible tissues and
compartments of the body (mainly the central nervous system (CNS)) in which the
viruses can hide, and from which they can re-emerge.
This is just another application of
Dr. Perez Garcia 1's discovery in the late 1920s
that IPT could deliver medications better into the brain and spinal cord, and
clear persistent syphilis from the CNS. An effective treatment of genital
herpes would be a great blessing -- 60 million in the US are estimated to have
it. And certainly there are many millions more in the world.
Here is a case of herpes zoster
( shingles ) as a
secondary infection in AIDS, treated by Drs. Perez Garcia 2 and 3, and summarized in the 1990 patent.
Here is a case of herpes simplex infection
in the 1992 patent. The patient had recurrences every 4-6 months for three
years. After 4 IPT treatments he had 2 years symptom free. After 3
more IPT treatments, he was symptom free for at least 8 more years.
IPT may be a fast and effective treatment for herpes infections. But here
is a different treatment protocol that would be unmatched in its simplicity and low
cost -- "auto-hemotherapy"
as described by Jean-Claude Paquette MD in his book Medicine
of Hope. Here is the discovery and the protocol, in his own
"A lady about thirty had been consulting me for the last 12 years for labial
herpes. Three dermatologists and an allergist had not found any solutions for
"Eager to help this patient, I pondered about it for a long time when the idea
came to me that her blood contained antigens against which it was necessary to
find a way to act. By injecting antigens, the system would probably produce
"I remembered having heard about hemotherapy, which consists in treating
someone with his own blood, but I was completely unfamiliar with the technique.
I then began with 1cc, then 2, then 4 cc, and I finally adopted the dose of 10
cc in my practice with spectacular results. I was drawing 10 cc of blood from a
vein in the arm and injecting it back intra-muscularly in the gluteus muscle
(buttocks), nothing else. The lesions dried out within 2 or 3 days and the pain
disappeared usually the very same day. I have treated over a hundred cases."
I do not know anything
about this unorthodox procedure. This website is about IPT, but Dr. Paquette was an early IPT
practitioner, we are publishing his book
here for the first time in English, and this was his treatment of choice for
this type of herpes. Dr. Paquette concluded:
"Occasionally, I meet former patients that I treated twenty or more years ago.
They are very proud to tell me that they never had any recurrences.
"This is how discoveries are made. I do not have enough experience on a
sufficient number of genital herpes cases to affirm whether or not auto-hemotherapy
is effective, but I have the feeling it will."
It seems to me that perhaps a clinical trial of this technique is
warranted. It would be very well suited for use in developed and
developing regions alike, since the only supplies needed are a syringe and a
needle. Any doctor could try this technique right now, since it does not
involve any medications at all. Does it work? Let's find out.
