We have found that patients and their families want to understand the range and specifics of alternative treatments that are available, including holistic approaches, immunotherapy, naturopathy, and others, to determine which facility offers options that align with their needs and beliefs.
We feel it's very important to give our patients the best quality of medicine that we can. Our doctors have years of experience in cancer and autoimmune disease treatments. We are constantly researching and collaborating with researchers around the world.
It is important for individuals looking for reliable and effective alternatives to traditional cancer treatments, like chemo and radiation, to be safe while getting other types of treatment. At New Hope Unlimited, all of our physicians are board-certified MDs. These doctors have years of experience. Our staff includes internal medicine, physicians, surgeons, oncologist, cardiologist, and we have other specialists available to call in if needed.
New Hope Unlimited has the ability to do minor and major surgeries if needed.
All our nurses are RN’s and all of our caregivers and therapists are certified and/or licensed.
Prospective patients often inquire about the availability of psychological and emotional support, nutritional counseling, and other supportive services that complement their alternative cancer treatments.
At New Hope Unlimited, we feel it is very important to address the emotional side of cancer or any disease. We do routine lectures for the patients and their caregivers on such subjects as the anatomy of cancer cells, nutrition, or the cancer diet, reasons for and why we do the treatments we do, and many other lectures. Education is very important. We give each patient their own workbook.
We have a trained, licensed psychologist who gives lectures and helps with emotional support. We give lectures for going home and continuing with your healthcare and lifestyle at home.
Once the patient goes home, they will receive weekly calls from New Hope Unlimited. They are encouraged to call us at any time when needed. We do our best to keep up with our patients or as we like to call it, our family.
Safety is a paramount concern for all of us, hence, potential patients sometimes ask about the facility, accreditation, safety protocols, patient satisfaction, and mechanisms to ensure the quality and safety of the alternative treatments offered.
There is an old saying in medicine, “First do no harm.” That is exactly what should be strived for in all clinics and hospitals. It is absolutely a priority at New Hope Unlimited. All of our staff are qualified and experienced in this field. New Hope Unlimited is a facility that is fully accredited and has all the licenses, and certifications required. We are located in Mexico, but we are located in a different state than Tijuana, which means the state we are in has a much higher standard and accreditation process which we have to go through and have to continue. We have authorities checking when least expected. We have extreme safety precautions for each treatment. Our treatments are backed up by scientific proof.
The owner of New Hope Unlimited has been in the medical field, working with cancer patients for close to 50 years. She requires that NHU goes by the standards of the United States OSHA and HIPPA laws.
We have individuals ask us many times about what makes our treatments individualized. In their journey of finding the perfect place for them to go to, they will find that all clinics will say they do individualized treatments. One must be very careful because vitamin C IVs, and the usual IVs that are used for cancer, can be given to any of the patients. It may be that they are not given on the same day for all of the patients, however, this does not truthfully mean that their protocol is just individualized. At New Hope Unlimited, we go to the core. In other words, when you do treatments that are on the cellular level, using the patients own biologicals, that is truly considered individualized.
No patient has the same DNA, cells, or genes as any other patient. There will be times when we use certain IVs that other patients will get but never does or can anyone get another patient’s biological. This is important to know because New Hope Unlimited is the only clinic that is doing the protocols that we offer. We have been in business going on 25 years and have a lot of experience. Other clinics like to say that they do the same things we do, but it's not possible. That is just their marketing tool. Our protocols are protected and under proprietary status. Other clinics do not have the laboratory equipment or know-how to do what we do. It is not that we want to hide things or not share, it has to be done to keep people safe.
It is very important that the patient and family understand the continuity of care and support available after the completion of their stay with us. It needs to be consistent follow-up and monitoring, which is crucial for us being able to manage the patient’s treatment efficiently.
We like to speak with the patient weekly or as needed. Patients will be assigned a nurse who will call them weekly or as needed. We ask that the patient gets monthly lab work so we can determine that we are going in the right direction with their care. There will be times that we will ask the patient to get a certain x-ray or PET SCAN.
We believe we should never guess at things or “wait and see”.
If the patient is referred by their own physician, we ask that we all can work as a team.
Patients often want to ensure that their loved ones can participate and support them through the treatment, and they may ask about NHU’s policies regarding family involvement in education. We love that! We feel that it is very important that a patient brings someone with them to experience the lectures, understand the treatments, understand the processes, and be able to attend all the lectures, which include emotional and psychological support. This helps all involved. And it helps the patient once they go home to be able to have someone that is continuing to support them and helping them to remember certain things which they learned while at the clinic.
Since alternative treatments can be very expensive, potential patients have inquired about any available financial aid, discounts, or payment plans that can help with their monetary burden. We understand this completely.
For those who qualify, we do have an “In House” payment plan.
Insurance companies have never been known to help out with anything that is not done in the US or FDA-approved. Some clinics in Mexico may tell you that insurance will pay or reimburse you, however, most of the time, that is a marketing tool.
It is such a shame that insurance does not want to pay because alternative treatments are actually much less expensive than doing chemotherapy or radiation. Many times, people are forced into those therapies because their insurance or Medicare will pay. On this statement, it's important to realize and ask many questions when it comes to your insurance in the US because insurance companies are beginning to not pay for these traditional therapies. We have had several patients lately coming to us stating that their insurance companies are dropping them or not paying. This is happening more and more.
It would be nice to have lobbyists in Washington DC to start helping insurance companies realize that they would be paying out much less to alternative medicine, which gets the job done, than they would for chemotherapy and radiation.
We realize that understanding the timeframe between acceptance and the starting of treatment is crucial for patients, especially when dealing with aggressive or advanced cancers. We like to do our best to get patients in as fast as possible because we always say, “cancer does not sleep or take a vacation.”
We do have to work on a first come basis. New Hope Unlimited keeps itself a somewhat small facility on purpose. In the past, we have worked in a large facility, keeping 21 patients at a time. We cut the size down because we felt that we could do a much better job with fewer patients at a time. To some business people, this makes no sense. For our mission, it's more important that we do a good job and help people rather than have quantities or large numbers and not help or do a good job. When you get too busy, it's hard to give the individualized care that is needed.
We try to get our patients in as fast as possible as soon as a bed is available. There have been times when there is a waiting list, so if you decide to come, try to let us know you are interested as soon as possible so we can hold a room for you.
Currently, Mexico allows many more cancer treatment options than the United States. By partnering with a facility in Mexico, New Hope patients are given access to treatments that have been researched and developed from other countries. Some of New Hope Unlimited’s treatment protocols originated in countries such as Germany, Israel, Italy, China, Mexico, Peru, Columbia, as well as others.
The treatment plan is individualized to fit your specific needs. Each program is designed to fit your diagnosis, age, and health condition. With 24-hour care, the medical team is able to observe the patient’s health status and can adjust protocols as needed. This is a truly personalized protocol treatment plan.
Three healthy meals a day are served along with healthy snacks. Most of the food is organic. Our meal staff is very accommodating, so you can request a food you prefer as long as it is healthy. Also, the water is safe to drink — it is actually acquired from United States sources.
Yes! We encourage you to bring someone who can support you in your journey. There is an extra bed in each patient’s room for a caregiver or family member to stay with you. They are also provided with meals and snacks at no extra cost. If you are planning to bring someone with you for your visit, please notify us as soon as possible so we can make arrangements.
You will stay in a private room with a bathroom. There is a TV in every room with english-speaking channels and a DVD player. Also, free Wi-Fi is available, so be sure to bring your laptop or other wireless device. No electrical adapters are needed at the hospital.
Be sure to pack comfortable clothes that you would normally “wear around the house.” The hospital staff will launder your clothes for you if needed. Typical weather in San Luis is warm to hot and since San Luis is considered a desert area, it hardly ever rains.
Yes. If you do not have a passport please let us know as soon as possible. We will be happy to assist you in preparing and filing your application.
A member of the hospital staff will greet you at the airport. We will pick you up and return you to the airport at the appropriate times. You will always be with a staff member coming and going across the border so there is no confusion.
There is great shopping in the area for those that want to get out and play. Nearly every business in this area accepts US currency. There is a park, restaurants, an english movie theater, a gym, and a wonderful spa nearby. There is also an excellent dentist that charges approximately 10% of the average American dental fees. This could be a great time for a cleaning or other dental work. Also, there are several churches close to the hospital. Other than what you choose to spend, there are no additional charges unless you elect to have surgery or some other type of program offered at the hospital. There is no need to spend money for a hotel room, extra food, or rental car (unless you want to).
We have an at-home aftercare program that begins once you return home from the hospital. New Hope’s RN will be calling you regularly to monitor your progress. Also, you can call us at any time with questions or concerns. We offer a supplement program that is customized specifically for you. The 4 month (16 week) Antibody Cancer Treatment will be administered at home. The instructions will be given to you before you leave the hospital. You will need to have your primary physician order routine blood work and x-rays as needed. It is important to maintain these tests so that we can monitor your progress. We will be glad to share our IV protocols with your primary physician if s/he would like to review your treatment program. However, not all of these protocols can be sent due to strict US regulations. At New Hope Unlimited, we believe that recovery is a team effort, and we should all be on your team!
It is our goal that this will be the only trip you need to make. However, we always welcome our patients back. Many people elect to come back for “boosters” or detoxification programs. We do not have different phases that you must return to complete. Ideally, you will get where you need to be in order for your body to heal in the comfort of your home.
