Issels Hospital in Tihuana Mexico

Have anybody used the Issels Hospital in Tihuana Mexico?

Please advise if you have used their vaccines and how long ago, because there are so many different messages about them - I would like to hear from somebody who was there a few years ago. Are Issels specialists "real" doctors or just nutritionists?

How many hours a day are patients in the "real" treatment, not just talking and walking?

PLEASE HELP! ASAP!

Thank you!

I went to Tihuana Mexico in March of 2014 with a stage 4 Breast cancer. I was very impressed with the hospital, the staff, and most of all my treatment results. I received the vaccines during my one week stay. Before I left the hospital my immune system started working at a 66 % it was 20% when I entered the hospital a week earlier. Also, two months after my treatment in Mexico my tumors in the lung and liver were gone. I recommend the issels, because I think immune thereaphy works. I would do it again if I had to.

Looks like Al asked that question back in 2008 so perhaps it may not do him a lot of goodl now.   Very sorry to hear that you are in Stage 4 BC.  We would like to hear your story if you want to share it survivor.   Most of us here know what Stage 4 means.   I personally would not do alternative treatment I don't think....however I'm only Stage 3-A and might change my tune if any Mets show up in my next PET Scan.   Did you do the Mexico thing IN ADDITION to your treatment with an Oncologist?

Sorry, I don't visit this site a lot. Yes, I did go to Mexico for the vacinations as well. I can only recommend it. I would do it again if I had to.

Apparently, the doctors have bogus mail-order credentials and their therapies are dubious and possibly lethal.  See more:  http://www.quackwatch.com/search/webglimpse.cgi?ID=1&query=biologics

PS It is interesting how posters with testimonials join the message board the same day that an inquiry pops up about the snake oil...lol.

I've also noticed that self-serving pattern. :-)

Kind regards, Susan
