Medical Tourism in Mexico: A Haven for Cancer Remission

If you are looking to expand your options and achieve cancer remission through non-toxic means, Mexico offers cutting-edge treatment options that go beyond radiation, high-dose chemotherapy, and other conventional methods. New Hope Medical Center in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico is a leading example of a “safe haven” where cancer patients can heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


Costly Cancer Treatments Leave Countless Americans in Debt

According to Patients Beyond Borders (PBB), the cost of healthcare in the United States is so high that it has become a driving force behind an increase in “medical tourism” for treatments of complex diseases, including cancer. In fact, the high cost of cancer treatments has left several American patients in debt.

“It’s crippling,” shares Dr. Veena Shankaran, an oncologist from the University of Washington who studied the financial impact of cancer treatments. “Even if someone survives cancer, they often can’t shake the debt.”

Shankaran discovered that cancer patients were 71 percent more likely than healthy Americans to face tax liens and mortgage foreclosure, have a mountain of bills in collections, or struggle with other financial setbacks. Following a review of bankruptcy records and cancer registries in Washington, Shankaran also found that cancer patients were nearly thrice as likely to declare bankruptcy than healthy Americans.


Rise of Alternative Cancer Treatments in Mexico

Mexico – alongside India, Israel, and Costa Rica – is a popular destination among foreign nationals in search of more affordable healthcare and medical procedures not yet available at home. In 2019, an estimated 1.2 million people from countries throughout the world came to Mexico for medical treatments, which demonstrates how favorable medical tourism has become.


Why More People Are Going Abroad for Medical Care

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines medical tourism as when an individual travels to a foreign country for healthcare. In the United States alone, millions of people participate in medical tourism on an annual basis, and the majority of American medical tourists travel to Mexico for medical care.

Aside from costs and unavailable or unapproved procedures in the US, many Americans travel to other countries – usually their parents’ or distant ancestors’ homelands – to receive medical care from a provider who shares the traveler’s language and culture. Dental care, cosmetic or plastic surgery, fertility treatments, organ transplantation, and cancer treatment are the most common procedures people undergo while on medical tourism trips, reports the CDC.


New Hope Unlimited Contributes to Mexico’s Growth in Healthcare

Mexico has become an international center for medical progress, and the team behind New Hope Medical Center is happy to play a small part in this change. When Dr. Fredda Branyon, our owner and president, opened our doors over 20 years ago, her goal was clear: to offer alternative cancer therapies that focus on the whole body, including emotional and spiritual wellness — not just the physical symptoms.
