Hoxsey Treatment

I have several friends that have been diagnosed with various types of cancer who went to the BioMedical Center in Tijuana for treatment. They've all returned cancer free. The people that I personally know are one stomach cancer (cancer free for 50 years), one lung cancer (cancer free for 20 years), one bone cancer (cancer free for around 5-6 years) and one skin cancer (cancer free for 3 years), and my friend with skin cancer met a lady on the bus going to the clinic that was a nurse...she said that her cancer had spread somewhere in the neck area, I forget exactly where it spread and what type of cancer that she had. Anyway, she said that doctors in the states had given up on her 4 years ago and had told her to get her affairs in order. She started treatment at the Hoxsey clinic and 4 years later she was on that bus telling her story. If you read up on the Hoxsey treatment, I've found a wide variety of what their "success rate" is. I've found anywhere from "little to no evidence" to 85% success rate. I was told that they once had 13 clinics in the states that were all shut down and that they had a 75% success rate when they were here. I'd like to hear from people who either are on the Hoxsey Treatment themselves, or who knows someone that was on the Hoxsey treatment. I'm not interested in any of the other treatment facilities in Tijuana, Mexico. Just the Hoxsey treatment... Anyone have any stories...good or bad?

I would like more info about this treatment from someone who has actually received it. While I am very open to alternative treatment--my father has been receiving this for almost 2 years--I am not familiar with the Hoxsey treatment or the Biomedical clinic and need more info in order to make a good decision as to whether it would be something we need to look into. Please respond to this if you have personally received this treatment or personally know someone who has. Thanks for your help. Lorri

My father was on the Hoxsey treatment, but only for about a month. In that months time, he felt and looked wonderful. He tolerated Chemo MUCH better and after being on the Hoxsey tonic for only a little over a week, he no longer felt pain from the cancer growing. Prior to being on the Hoxsey treatment, he felt pain in his liver almost constantly. We all know that you feel pain when the cancer is growing. The pain went away completely. Unfortunately, he has a stroke and has spiraled downhill since then. There are no signs of the cancer growing, but he's now battling pneumonia. He got pneumonia from aspiration of liquids into the lungs from not being able to swallow properly after his 2nd stroke. I can't say what would've happened long term if he was able to stay on the Hoxsey treatment. But, if I'm ever able to get him back on this treatment, I believe he has a much better shot of beating cancer on this treatment than with chemo or any other treatment. We've already experienced that route and if I had it to do over again, I would've never let him go through chemo.

Michelle, Thank you so much for your response. I am sorry about your dad's stroke. It is so much better to hear from someone who has actually been through a procedure rather than read stats, etc. from impersonal articles. Did your father actually go to the clinic in Mexico? If so, how did that go? How long were you there? Again, I appreciate so much your responding to my inquiry. We are seriously considering this procedure. I hope that your dad will receover from his stroke and his cancer. It has been really hard for me to see my dad suffer, but we are still hopeful and continue to have faith that God will heal him. While I don't know your dad's name, God knows who he is and I will say a prayer for him and for you. Take care. Lorri

We all went to the clinic. We stayed at a hotel in San Ysidro, CA, and that hotel has a shuttle bus that brings you right to the cancer hospital in Tijuana. If you don't have current bloodwork, they do all that there. You should bring all your records. They meet with you initially in the morning, I guess around 9-10am, then take a few hours to consult with 5-6 other doctors/specialist which are all on property. In this time, you go eat breakfast, which is right next to the clinic. Afterwards, you walk back and they call you back into the room and tell you what their findings are. They give you a small packet that states what meds you will start on and it draws out a very specific diet. The shuttle bus, then drives you both to the pharmacy and to a local herb shop where they have your meds ready for you. When you cross the US border again, you tell them it's vitamins. You're supposed to go back in 3 months initially, then 6 months after that. I met a few people there that were there for their 3 month and 9 months check up. The doctors did bloodwork on them and were able to tell them exactly what they'd been eating and how they'd cheated on the diet plan. It was actually kind of amazing. You can't cheat the diet, they will know. Everyone I met there said how wonderful they felt after starting on the tonic and the other herbs/meds. As I stated before, I'm not sure about long term success as far as my father goes because he had 2 strokes and was unable to stay on the meds. They're talking about putting a PEG tube in for feeding and if they do that, we plan to get him back on the mexico regimin ASAP. Any other questions? I'd be glad to answer any questions you have.

ANd, on top of all that, the treatment only costs $3500.00, plus I think $900.00 for bloodwork if you don't have your own. And, this is for a lifetime treatment. This is truly a facility that cares about people, not money.

A few more questions. What kind of medicine, etc did your dad receive? Is it supplements? If so, would you mind just giving the names of a few? Was he put on a special diet? Does everyone get the same treatment? I asked about the supplements because my dad is already on a biological treatment which includes several different supplements to include CoQ10, Grape seed extract, Selenium, Pro Boost, DHEA, Pregnenolone (sp), Matake D Fraction, Zyflamend, E 1000 I.U. pure d1-Alpha, Vit A, etc. I just wonder if what they do at the clinic is similar to what my dad is now receving. Again, I am just needing as much info as possible to see if it would be worth going to the clinic. You are right--the price is certainly more than reasonable. Thanks for sharing your experience. Thanks again for your input. I hope your dad will soon be back on the treatment since you believed it was helping him. I will say another prayer for him and for you, his daughter.

One is the Hoxsey tonic which is a variety or different herbs and roots. They mix that up there. They also gave him Yew tips which is the natural form of taxol which is a chemotherapy drug. They gave 2 things that I've never heard of called Artemisinin and Livlife. They also put him on Ester C and Calcium. The regimin is not the same for everyone. They vary what you'll take depending on the type of cancer and where it has spread. The diet is very similar to all the other detox diets, but no tomatoes, vinegar, pork, or alcohol. No peanuts, no peanut butter, sugar, refined or processed ANYTHING. No microwaved food, no preservatives, nothing in a can. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. No aged cheese. It spells it all out for you in this packet that they give you. That's very briefly what the diet consists of. It's more complex than that though. They tell you how many times a week you can eat certain meats, or fish. You'll never really be able to eat out on this diet. And, it's very hard to find a bread that doesn't contain vinegar, or a form of vinegar. We had to bake our own.

My brother has stage 3 lymphoma in upper torso and I am looking to find out about the Bio Medical Clinic in Mexico. How can I contact them and is there any treatment for Hoxsey here in the states available? I would like to contact them about my brother and get him to go there before he starts chemo and bone marrow transplants. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hoxsey Clinic

I have a friend who had a melanoma on her arm and the doctors wanted to take all the flesh off her arm from the shoulder to the wrist. She went to the Hoxsey clinic in 1974. At that time the life time treatment was only $600 dollars. She had to give up: white flour, white sugar, table salt, vinegar, alcohol, carbonation, pork, and tomatoes. She is 73 years old today and still cancer free. She still goes down every two or three years. The clinic was started by Dr. Hoxsey in Texas and after fighting the FDA and AMA he gave up and his nurse Mildred Nelson went to Tiajuana and started the clinic. The cost now is $3500.00 but you only have to come up with 1/3 in the beginning. They have a web site at: www.cancure.org/hoxsey_clinic.html They do have a high cure rate. If my cancer ever comes back, I will be going to the Hoxsey clinic......Good Luck and God Bless you. Jackie
