What’s on your mind?

Below you’ll find answers to the questions we hear most at Immunotherapy Institute. But we don’t want you to rely on this list – give us a call! We can answer these and so much more.

Our Treatments

Can the Institute treat Stage IV cancer?

Yes, in fact over half of cancer patients are stage IV and although each patient’s outcome is different based on their current health situation, medical history, eating habits, and overall lifestyle, our studies have shown that 90% of our cancer patients have benefited from our treatments. It’s very important that patients in stage 4 make timely decisions because time is of critical essence for the treatment to take positive effect.

Can I undergo treatment at the Institute if I've undergone chemotherapy?

Yes, many of our patients are still doing chemotherapy or have had it done in the past. One of the great benefits of our treatments is that it doesn’t affect being in chemo like most other treatments, in fact, many of our most successful cases have already done chemo in the past. Our treatments will precondition the body to eliminate the toxic effects from previous chemotherapy to get the body to its optimal condition for the treatment.

What is the probability of curing my cancer?

Unfortunately there’s no guarantees, however our statistical studies have shown that if admitted into our program, there’s a very high chance that the patient will have a positive outcome, in fact on average, 80% of our cancer patients have managed to control their cancer into a manageable state that allows them to gain quality-of-life and avoid the major set-backs known to most cancer patients, or in many cases have completely cured their cancer. Please talk to our doctors so that they can assess your situation and provide a better idea of your possibilities.

What are the side effects of treatment?

Because our program employs natural treatments that only enhance the body’s own natural ability to attack cancer, there’s no negative side-effects. Patients that have previously undergone chemotherapy will be administered a chemo-preconditioning program that will decrease the negative side-effects like, hair-loss, nausea, toxicity, anemia and others to until the body is in optimal condition for our treatment program.

The Institute

I hear you mention the term "Functional Medicine." What is it?

Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Why is this program only available in Mexico?

Affordability, traveling convenience, treatment innovation, and regulatory system: Mexico presents the perfect environment to allow for cancer treatment innovation without the special-interest blockage.

How long will I be at the Institute?

At the Institute, our treatment protocol can take between 18 days to 25 days, according to each patient´s case.

Nutrition

How do you create my nutrition plan?

Your personalized nutritional plan is developed, reviewed and redefined by our specialized medical team with our clinical nutritionist, kitchen staff and functional trained chefs.

They take into consideration your unique needs in a stressful situation, nutritional deficiencies, the nutritive food you desperately need, allergies and personal preference of taste and food appearance.

What are the characteristics of the Institute nutrition plan?

Why are supplements part of the Institute nutritional plan?

Supplements are a main part of a healthy diet regimen. We offer a more specialized line of supplements to our patients designed for them. Our medical team takes into consideration your medical history, lab work, specific medical tests, genetics, physical state, lifestyle, age, gender and type of disease.

Your supplements are reviewed and altered with time as our patients heal and their body finds the balance it needs.

How does diet affect my immune system?

Our immune system is our army and is in charge of protecting us from any possible threat – external or internal. Our food supply is full of chemicals more now than never, this to create shelf life and to preserve the quality of the product and to avoid contamination, yet is not related to nutrient lifespan. We know now that food can trigger inflammation and create alterations in our digestive processes that could lead to severe dysfunction resulting in disease.

Costs

What does treatment cost?

Contrary to the belief that an Institute with such prestigious reputation like ours will be very expensive, patients that have decided to get our treatments constantly tell us that one of the main reasons they decided to choose us over others, is our straight-forward affordable price without any sneaky pricing gimmicks or up sales.
