What Can You Tell Me About Alternative Treatment Cancer Centers In Mexico
Don't work: These are a simple scam to separate you from your money. By hiding in Mexico they can avoid the FDA and government and make any claim they want, which they can not do in the US.

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
How they operate: They offer warmth and "spirituality / caring" in contrast to impersonal evidence-based medicine. If you get better after previous scientific rx, "it was really us who helped." if you stay sick, "we stabilized you." if you die, "if only you hadn't eaten those twinkies / had that surgery." they lie shamelessly. The only cancers they cure are the ones they diagnose themselves. Shun these people. ...Read more
There aren't any: Herbal medicine is fascinating and many of the products are effective, especially for functional disease. However, none of the herbs can compare with scientific acne rx that's available from a scientific physician and is quite cheap, especially by today's crazy standards. Especially if the patient is a teen for whom you are caring, please do the right thing. ...Read more

By Trial: In most cases a single agent is used in a clinical trial but in order to enhance efficacy after data on the single drug is obtained combinations are used in clinical FDA trials to see what advantage can be obtained. As such we saw CMF in breast cancer, FOLFOX in colon cancer and FOLFIERI in pancreatic cancer. Now Abraxane has been added to Gemzar (gemcitabine) for pancreas Ca. ...Read more
Controversial: It is controversial, because there is no absolute guarantee of immunity even with standard immunizations. But for german measles, some use pulsatilla and the rubella nosode. For red measles (roseola): aconitum napellus, arsenicum album, morbillinum, pulsatilla, and varicellinium. Personally, i don't do this -- and treat homeopathically from what the patient actually presents. ...Read more
Interesting: There are several recent big studies in which rapamycin / sirolimus has been used in advanced cancer after other treatments have failed, usually in combination with a second agent. It's interesting stuff, the results are very encouraging, and it's also obviously not a miracle cure as has been hyped in the media. If you or someone you love might want to join such a study, ask your doctor. ...Read more
I'm looking for a dermatologist who can treat my case of alopecia. I live in oakland ca. Please let me know of any recommendations.?
Ask a primary doctor: A person having hair loss can ask his primary care doctor about it, because sometimes there is a medical disorder causing hair loss (although many times it's just male-pattern baldness). The doctor may have other patients who have had good results with local dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hair restoration doctors, etc... A search of healthtap did not turn up any oakland dermatologists so far. ...Read more

You need to tell us about the stage of your cancer and what treatment/s have you already used. Alternative medicines is a very broad term often used by folks who refuse to take standard/established, useful treatments. This can be a big mistake and is often a gamble, to be avoided. ...Read more
Hi please give me any information u know about alternative acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatment in mexico?
Cruel scams: Forgive me. These fake clinics have been around for decades. These people prey on the vain hopes and fears of people in crisis. The proprietors claim to be persecuted geniuses and humanitarians. When the Rx's fail, they'll blame you. ("If only you hadn't eaten junk food.") They bring money into Mexico so the government tolerates them. Would you go there to buy anything else of real value? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
