Insulin potentiation therapy or low dose chemotherapy is a gentler approach to the treatment of Cancer. In this therapy, it is the chemotherapy that works to kill cancer cells. The work of this therapy is only to potentiate the chemotherapy. In this therapy, insulin along with a chemotherapy drug and glucose are administered to the body simultaneously. First, insulin is injected into the body to lower the glucose level. The thing with cancer cells is that they require multiple times more glucose than healthy cells in order for them to survive. This is because, they do not have the ability to produce glucose themselves. Therefore, by administering insulin and reducing blood sugar level, the cancer cells become vulnerable. Therefore when glucose and a chemo drug are administered they instantly rush to absorb it. In the process, they absorb the chemo drug which eventually kills them.
