Looking for way to heal your cancer that doesn’t break the bank and gives you access to highly effective alternatives to surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy? Then look no further than a 15 minute drive from the San Diego airport! Just south of the U.S. border, Baja California, Mexico offers state-of-the-art alternative cancer treatments at clinics like Hope4Cancer Institute.

From Healthcare Costs to Access to Advanced Therapies

The rise in healthcare costs in the United States is a significant driver of “medical tourism” for all types of treatments including cancer. Patients Beyond Borders (PBB), a consumer information company on international medical travel, lists Costa Rica, India, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey as the top destinations for Americans and Canadians seeking medical procedures. PBB estimates that more than 1 million travelers come from outside Mexico for medical care. For many, it is the access to less costly care that brings them to Mexico. For others, it is access to advanced procedures and techniques not yet approved in the United States or Canada.

In the last decade, Mexico has come into its own as a global healthcare hub, and Hope4Cancer Institute is proud to be part of that growth. When Dr. Antonio Jimenez, our founder, started Hope4Cancer Institute in 2000, he did so with a vision of healing cancer by addressing the whole body, mind, and spirit — not just the symptoms. Our steady growth in patients from across the globe shows us that our approach is giving them a new way of addressing their cancer healing. Our continued success in helping countless patients achieve remission and a higher quality of life post-treatment keeps us motivated to continue advancing our care. We strive to be the best at delivering non-toxic cancer treatments that are effective and affordable.

Holistic and Innovative Healing

In our experience at Hope4Cancer, we are able to offer effective alternative cancer treatments for much less cost compared to similar treatments in Europe or Asia due to our reasonable labor costs and lack of reliance on products from global pharmaceutical companies. We also do not experience the pressures from insurance companies to see countless patients a day, which allows our medical doctors to take the best care of their cancer patients. We also have a progressive Health Department in Mexico, which allows our clinic to offer the most innovative and advanced therapies available around the world.

Dr. Jimenez and I scour the globe every year for the most advanced non-toxic treatments and protocols. For example, we are the only clinic in Mexico offering the Rigvir Virotherapy. Rigvir is a science-based therapy discovered and approved for use in the countries of Latvia and Georgia, that simultaneously targets cancer cells, awakens the dormant or suppressed immune system, and leaves healthy cells untouched. Once the virus gets inside the cancer cell, it divides and breaks down the cell in a process called oncolysis. When the virus multiplies in the host cancer cell, it is destroyed without affecting healthy cells. At Hope4Cancer Institute, we have found that 91 percent of our patients report sustained or improved quality of life following Rigvir therapy.

Travel Precautions

Of course, when you travel out of your own country for medical care, it is always important to think about the safety of traveling to and from the clinic, the locale, and the food and water.

Travel: At Hope4Cancer Institute, we employ our own drivers who personally escort our patients to the clinic from the San Diego airport, through the border, and any time they travel in the vicinity of the clinic.

Locale: The clinic is located in Playas de Tijuana, which is a safe neighborhood adjacent to the U.S. border and the Pacific Ocean. We literally can see downtown San Diego from our location. Since we are located beach-side, many of our patients are able to enjoy a daily stroll on the boardwalk or beach. They also have the option of going to the many popular American chain stores such as Walmart, RadioShack, and Starbucks that are close by. Since we established the clinic, we have never had a single safety concern for our patients.

Food & Water: To ensure that our patients do not experience any digestive concerns during their stay, we provide three organic meals per day plus bottled water. Our chef and trained kitchen staff always have the best interests of our patients at heart and source our ingredients from only the best suppliers in the region and across the border in the United States.

Your Partner in Healing

Cancer is a complicated disease with many forms and many causes. It requires a holistic approach for true healing to occur. At our clinic, our patients are not viewed or treated as just a number — they are people with hopes, dreams, and lives worth living. We are thankful that our seaside location in Baja California, Mexico affords us the opportunity to deliver an individualized and comprehensive treatment plan for each patient who chooses Hope4Cancer Institute as their healing partner.
