Martin Dayton, MD, DO, (clinic website) is licensed and Board Certified as an osteopathic physician and surgeon by the state of Florida. He received his DO degree from Still University (Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine) in 1970, as well as an MD degree from Ross University in 1983. He also studied electrical acupuncture from 1974-77, at the Ryodoraku Institute of North America.
He is currently the medical director at Dayton Medical Center, in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. His clinical experience includes emergency and intensive care medicine, as well as family and nutritional medicine. He is also a clinician, author, researcher, lecturer, and teacher.
Dr. Dayton has received certification by all of the following organizations: the American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology, the Ryodoraku Institute of America (in electro-acupuncture), and the former American Board of Homeopathy and Certifying Board for Clinical Nutrition.
He is a past fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice (1983-2003) and the International College of Applied Nutrition (1981). His past teaching positions include: Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at Nova Southeastern University; Clinical Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific; Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine; Preceptor at the University of Miami; and Preceptor at the University of Pittsburgh.
Approximately twenty percent of Dr. Dayton’s patients are cancer patients. He has been treating cancer with Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) since 2001, and has been using homeopathy and heavy metal chelation therapies since the 1970s. He combines medical concepts found in both eastern and western medicine. The eastern concept of medicine has to do with balancing the body. The western concept of medicine has to do with destroying what doesn’t belong in the body. Dr. Dayton has found that combining these two branches of medicine, carefully and prudently, produces the best outcomes for patients.

What Cancer Is and What Causes It
Cancer is caused by many things. In general, it’s caused by the interaction of the body’s genes within their environment. Our chromosomes are like banks of genetic switches. Certain switches are turned on, while others are turned off, to elicit specific behaviors in the body. Genetic switches are influenced by heredity as well as environmental toxins and radiation. Deficiencies and excesses of nutrients, hormones, viruses, emotions, and many other factors also play a role in genetic behavior.
Cancer cells have common characteristics which distinguish them from benign cells. For instance, the ability to self-destruct, which is found in benign cells, is impaired in cancer cells. As such, cancer cells don’t contribute to the welfare of the body. Normal cells self-destruct so that new, vibrant cells can take their place. This process is called apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Cancer cells, instead of self-destructing, produce more dysfunctional cancer cells, eventually producing tumors and metastases. Many therapies target the induction of apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells.
Cancer cells are also different from normal cells because they create energy for function, propagation, and repair by metabolizing sugar without oxygen, while normal cells rely upon the metabolism of sugar with oxygen for the production of their energy.
Cancer cells use various strategies to survive at the expense of normal cells, one of which is immune system evasion. Accordingly, targeted therapies for cancer are intended to exploit the differences between malignant and benign cells, in order to improve immune recognition, and cripple the energy-producing pathways that cancer uses.
