The most effective way to manage a given condition is to use a comprehensive approach that takes into account the characteristics of both the individual patient as well as the characteristics of the disease. With this in mind, the Infusio concept makes use of select treatment protocols that we have found to be particularly effective in treating specific health conditions. We recognize the value of a balanced approach that does not exclude either conventional medical therapies or complementary therapies.
Our recommendation as to which treatments to use with you are not made by simply following a protocol, but rather are based on what is least harmful and most effective for a given patient and given condition. Our disease-specific treatments are not stand-alone protocols, but are most effectively implemented as one part of the Five Steps To Health. Treatments that we may use include the following:
Laetrile, also known as Amygdalin and Vitamin B17, is a concentrated form of nitriloside found in the seeds of bitter almonds, apricots, cherries and other fruits. Its properties have been used and studied extensively for well over 100 years. Laetrile is made up of glucose, hydrogen cyanide (cause for the controversial nature of laetrile) and benzaldehyde (an effective pain killer). In the body, rhodanese – which is present in healthy cells – breaks down laetrile into thiocyanate and benzoic acid, which are beneficial to healthy cells. Cancer cells, lacking rhodanese but containing beta-glucosidase, instead break down laetrile into hydrogen cyanide and benzaldehyde, which work together to kill the cancer cells. Laetrile is used intravenously, and may be used as the chemotherapeutic agent in IPT (insulin potentiation therapy).
