Leah Lund, December, 2020
Medical Condition : Stage 2 Breast Cancer
Treatment Center: Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers | ( Mexico )

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 , Her + breast cancer in June of 2019 and the recommendation was for a lumpectomy and radiation and if I tested positive for BRCA then the recommendation would include mastectomy. Based on my faith in God, experience as a Holistic Health Coach, and belief in the body to heal itself , I simply could not go that route as my first course of action. I learned of Hope 4 Cancer, had an initial phone consultation and went on the path of non toxic treatment. In my initial 3 week stay, we stopped blood flow to the tumor and by the 1st follow up the 2 small tumors outside the main "bump" (as I call it) disappeared. Now, 15 months later all labs continue to be good and the bump is shrinking! The environment at H4C is 100% FAITH and LOVE based (no fear in the building) and I've not had one single regret about my choice. The emotional healing work is as important as the nutrition and the cutting edge treatments. Home support has answered every question I've ever had and I know I continue to be in good hands. I highly recommend this option and praise God for bring Hope 4 Cancer to my attention.

Emily Bell, November, 2020
Medical Condition : Breast cancer
Treatment Center: Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers | ( Mexico )

We love Hope4Cancer and are forever grateful for the wonderful treatment, care and service they have provided us!! When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32 I didn’t feel peace about the conventional options recommended to me. I went in pursuit of additional options and found H4C and am forever grateful I did. The 7 key principles immediately resonated with truth to me and as I read other patients stories I knew it was where I wanted to go. The thoughtful, personal care I have received there has been exceptional and I love the H4C family. I was diagnosed in June of 2019 and have been healing naturally ever since and feel strong, vibrant and healthy! I wrote a couple of blog posts about our experience with H4C and my healing which can be found here: https://medium.com/@thelostbells And we have a video documenting some of my story and experience here: https://youtu.be/yz6Le3GEU8A (It’s now been a year and a half since I was diagnosed and I’m continuing to focus on healing and have seen improvements with each follow up visit.)

Aliya, September, 2020
Medical Condition : Stage IV Breast Cancer
Treatment Center: Swiss Mountain Clinic | ( Europe )

I wasn't well at the clinic for 12 out of 15 days, despite having a break from the chemo meds in preparation for the clinic's treatment. I often have breaks and they work well. The focus was on parasites which I was told caused the cancer. As a result I was given Frequency Therapy, a kind of shock treatment for parasites. During the 5th 70 minute session I vomited and was delirious for 3 hours. It was frightening. That was around 1.00pm. The doctor came 7 hours later to check on me and it took me 2 days to recover and I wondered if I would be able to travel home alone. My UK consultant did a blood test to check on one of the parasites and it wasn't present. I'm also checking whether I have a tape worm. I asked for a copy of the parasite test results and there wasn't one. I went to the clinic with high hopes after being assured during a video call that they would be able to help. The key tumour marker was in the normal range before and now it's outside, which is upsetting. Plus, I had to give the clinic a budget after the first week's bill was much higher than anticipated. I also noticed a high figure on the bill for a treatment that was unsuccessfully attempted. I have asked for a refund for that, the parasite treatment and the parasite protocol that was very expensive. In any case I'm not well enough to take it in conjunction with chemo tablets. Tbe doctor said my appearance was deceptive, that I looked quite well, in a follow up email on my return. I would have thought with all their testing they understood how fragile I was. I'm still trying to make sense of the whole experience. In conclusion, I dont think the SMC has any idea about secondary breast cancer with bone metastases. Their repertoire of treatments is focused on detoxing and writing all this has made me wonder why I went.

Maike Blazek, September, 2020
Medical Condition : Stage III invasive Breast Cancer
Treatment Center: Arcadia Clinic | ( Europe )

I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to start my healing journey in the manner, I felt comfortable and right for me and I am forever grateful for the Arcadia team and the healing I have experienced both physically and spiritually during each of my three visits at the clinic. The entire team is very knowledgable and caring. My husband and me always felt very comfortable, seen and heard at all times. They limit the amount of patients at a time so that each patient gets the time, care and attention they deserve. Accommodation, three meals a day as well as bi- weekly laundry service are provided. It definitely does not feel like you are staying at a hospital or somewhere you are going for cancer treatments. I really appreciated the warm and almost family like vibe from everyone, while still getting the necessary care. We live in Hawaii, USA but consider the Arcadia clinic my primary care and can honestly say we have never trusted a doctor more than we trust Dr Henning Saupe and his team. I am in Remission since beginning of this year and still look forward to returning for a "boost up" treatment. I wish you well and hope this review gives you a little insight and comfort to choose Arcadia clinic for your healing journey too.

Medical Condition : Breast cancer stage 4
Treatment Center: Arcadia Clinic | ( Europe )

I think it is one of the best cancer clinics in the world.

I have been at Arcadia clinic 3 times to get help with breastcancer. They work integratively, they combine the best methods from conventional treatements and alternative treatments. They have both knowledge and compassion. I think it is one of the best cancer clinics in the world. I will strongly recommend it.

Kathryn Doherty, August, 2020
Medical Condition : Breast Cancer- Multi-centric Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
Treatment Center: Arcadia Clinic | ( Europe )

Just go to Arcadia!

Diagnosed in 2016 in the USA, I consider Arcadia in Germany to be my primary place for care. It was recommended to me by a cancer counselor when I was in that initial confused state of trying to navigate all the choices ahead. She said "Just go to Arcadia. I have visited them all and it is the best." I followed her recommendation and have returned many times to a welcoming, competent, responsive, caring staff. I joke about wanting to immigrate to be near this peaceful place (located in a park!) though in truth the distance (and language) has actually not interfered with the consistency of medical attention and positive results. From the moment I am greeted at the airport, I experience a total immersion into all aspects of healing- mind/body/spirit. They take a maximum of 10 patients with everything managed seamlessly. I have heard of clinics where you need to find housing, deal with your own meals, laundry, etc. Nothing at all like that at Arcadia!!! I will forever be grateful that Arcadia has partnered with me in my healing, actually in my life. I was given the book "Radical Remission" by Dr. Kelly Turner to read at Arcadia, and I now work with and share these healing factors I have learned about and experienced. Arcadia launched this for me and is in total alignment with my path. I now say the same thing that was said to me. "Just go to Arcadia!”

Your Friend, July, 2020
Medical Condition : Breast Cancer Stage 4
Treatment Center: Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers | ( Mexico )

if you want to spend a lot of money for under qualified staff, to fight to receive what you have already paid for, to never have a schedule or a clue what was going on or when, to be bullied and pressured for more $$ when you arrive at the clinic and to be told that if you just think positive you will see a difference this is the place for you! I don't doubt that the treatments may work, but it is cheaper and less stressful to literally buy all the equipment for your home and "guess" how much you should be doing of each. I went being guaranteed special attention to my limitations and not only was that never provided but I was forgotten in exam rooms more than 5x during my stay.

Kim , June, 2020
Medical Condition : Breast Cancer
Treatment Center: Hufeland Klinik | ( Europe )

Steer clear of Hufeland Klinic!! I went there in 2017 and it was absolutely terrible. Whereas the treatment options and infusions are satisfactory, the place is cold and VERY unfriendly, the food was horrendous, carb-heavy and not at all nutritious. Someone should sue the for false advertising on their website. I literally had to beg for one juice a day!! And all they gave me was a tiny glass of carrot juice!! I came out of there with increased glucose blood levels, and increased cancer markers. It is run by the wife and daughter of the deceased founder - neither of which have ANY medical background. They also didn't bother to introduce themselves to me or speak to any of the 10 patients who were residing there at the time. Dr. Demuth is the main doctor and he is very melo-dramatic and un-approachable. His background is in cardiology .... The (only) other doctor ,during my stay, was a retired older man who frequently became flustered and confused. It's no co-incidence that there are NO DOCTORS mentioned on their website. The nurses were mostly kind, but de-sensitised. One of them actually yelled at me once over a mix up about an appointment. There was no warmth. The receptionist didn't like to be disturbed - ever! The psychologist was an obese woman who was obsessed with Disney land Paris and advised several of us to go there, as therapy. Two people died while I was there. This was not a reflection of the medical treatment they received at the clinic, BUT no-one from the staff spoke to any of the patients about it or gave us any re-assurances. They all acted like nothing had happened. In fact, there were signs on the walls advising/telling patients not to discuss our cancer with other patients. So it felt like a taboo to talk about the one thing we all had in common and desperately needed to talk about. It really was an awful place ...the owners are clearly only interested in making money and Dr. Demuth is so overwhelmed, that he is unable to be of any real value to his patients. On a positive note, the treatments and weekday infusions were all satisfactory but you can get all of those at all the other clinics.
