What are Alternative Cancer Treatments?
There are many cancer treatments available in Mexico that are not available in the US. Some of the treatments focus on nutrition and boosting the immune system, while others focus on the tumor or cancer cells. However, the overall focus is on the patient as a whole, or holistic treatment. Cancer treatment in the US typically focuses only on the cancer, forgetting about the patient as a whole.
Cancer treatment in Mexico begins with assessing each patient to develop a unique plan for each individual. Within this plan, the medical team assesses their patients not only physically, but also emotionally and mentally. Cancer takes a toll on individuals as a whole, so treatment should take patients as a whole into account.
Once a treatment plan is put in place, the cancer treatment takes place, using a combination of alternative therapies. For usually two to four weeks, patients and a companion stay in Mexico. The patient receives treatment usually 5 to 6 days a week and then one free day to explore. Alternative therapies have little side effects, unlike traditional medicine, allowing patients to feel like themselves.
Additionally, once the treatment has concluded, the cancer treatment centers in Mexico have extensive follow up plans as well to ensure their patients ongoing success. Many patients that have been given little to no hope after conventional medicine fails them, find new hope and lengthy survival in Mexico.
