Medical Condition : Crohn's
Treatment Center: Gerson Clinic Northern Baja, Mexico | ( Mexico )

All of my symptoms had eased within just a few days

My experience at the clinic was great! Even met or exceeded my highest expectations on every level. The staff was amazing, the atmosphere was amazing, all the people were amazing. Everything was just totally taken care of from the moment we walked in the door. All of my symptoms had eased within just a few days of starting the treatment. I had my ups and downs energy-wise, but space was always given for plenty of rest and recovery. This is an amazing place and a life transformational jump start to a full on Gerson Therapy program if you're up for it.

We left there after 3 weeks feeling incredible

Everything about the clinic and staff was so professional and very wonderful to work and be with. I stayed at the clinic for 3 weeks with my wife. We left there after 3 weeks feeling incredible. Energy levels through the roof, digestive health incredibly better. Our skin looked and felt amazing. We cannot say enough good things about Dr. Patrick Vickers and all the staff at Northern Baja Gerson Center.

Medical Condition : Pancreatic cancer, Hepatitis C & Crohn's Disease
Treatment Center: Gerson Clinic Northern Baja, Mexico | ( Mexico )

A special thanks to Dr. Patrick Vickers

Our whole family went to the clinic. My dad for pancreatic cancer and hepatitis C. My mother for hepatitis C, and myself for Crohn's disease. It has been 2 years since we went. According to the doctors my dad shouldn't be alive. Not only is he but his tumour has shrunk. My mom and I are also doing well with no symptoms. The Gerson therapy just makes sense. Disease is nutritional deficiency and toxicity. Flood the body with the nutrients it has been missing and clean out the garbage by detoxifying then watch amazing healing take place. Chef Laura is amazing! The setting is beautiful and most importantly the clinic is well equipped with all the leading cancer therapies (ozone, vitamin C, Bemer, hyperbaric chambers, etc) A special thanks to Dr. Patrick Vickers to whom I am eternally grateful. Dr. Vickers has answered every question over the past 2 years and promptly at that. I don't know what I would have done without his support. Dr. Martinez is also a wonder man who provides updates to their protocol and always asks how they are. He seems to genuinely care.

Rich de Groot, November, 2019
Medical Condition : Pure Seminoma Testicular, stage 1
Treatment Center: CHIPSA Hospital | ( Mexico )

The staff do go the extra mile

I'm a bit of a rare case, because most people come here when conventional medicine has not worked or they were sent home to die. Being someone who has known of the Gerson Protocol for years and living in Canada where are health care system is terrible in regards to integrative medicine I came here. Being a person that at a young age knew that most MD's don't ever fix anything, rather just mask the symptoms, I knew building the system up via overdosing on nutrition was the answer. Who would have thought? The easiest thing for me to do would have been to stay home and have the tumor removed and carry on. However I knew that all the various new treatments they added in addition to Gerson Protocol would have dramatic positive impact on overall health and protection against a reoccurring cancer down the road. Reason being is, for anyone considering, the dendritic cell therapies, along with some new immunotherapy's they have introduced, will train your immune system to recognize the cancer cells and abolish them. That's the missing link that most people don't understand. If your finger gets infected, cutting it off isn't the answer. Training your body to fight it is. This is why I will always implement these systems and continue to go back a few times a yr as a health retreat. I'm hoping one day, there will be more people like me who recognize, this is not the last stop when conventional has failed or given up. This should be looked at as, not just a place to go heal cancer, but rather a place for overall conditions. Anyone that goes here that has other health issues, will see great improvement. People need to look at these places as healing centers not a last ditch attempt. I'm hoping one day we will have clinics all over North America like this, that people go to like a gym to maintain health. After all, the cure for cancer is not getting it in the first place. The people there are very friendly and the staff do go the extra mile. You don't feel like a number and as busy as these Dr's and nurses are, they take the time to go over things and bend over backwards. No one is perfect, however you do feel like you literally have personal assistants getting you anything you need. I wish I could remember all the Names of the people I made contact with, but a shout out to Dr Matt, Dr Menes, Sara Peterson, Lola and all the other nurses and coordinators. Even the girl at the front desk at the outpatient clinic is such a caring person. Nothing is a guarantee in this life or clinic and they won't promise you anything. But I can promise you, that you will get better results here then conventional. Ive seen a lot of people that were given death sentences make miraculous remissions and are still here today, you should too.

Joseph, August, 2019
Medical Condition : Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer
Treatment Center: Gerson Clinic Northern Baja, Mexico | ( Mexico )

The treatment plans are not customized

Northern Baja Gerson Center, Patrick Vickers-Founder and Owner/Director My wife & I went to the NBGC for 3 weeks in April of 2019 to seek out benefits of Gerson Therapy combined with some alternative therapy that may or may not be legal in the USA. I have Pancreatic Cancer and my tumor marker (CA 19-9) on day 1 at the clinic was 600. 2 days after we left, which is at 23 days, the number had risen to 3900. Normal CA 19-9 blood levels are below 35. As Advertised: Gerson therapy is provided as well as coffee enemas, hyperbaric chamber, bemer mat, silver pulser, B17 Laetrile and hyperthermia which was provided via a Jacuzzi. For an additional fee you can have dendritic cell therapy, UV ozone therapy and GcMAF. They advertise to also provide IV Vitamin C, which they no longer provide. Vitamin C is given as a supplement. One of the additional supplements is actually a prescription for natural thyroid which is given to everyone several times a day without blood testing prior to or during treatment and you are also sent home with a 3-month supply. All food is organic & a person consumes 20 pounds per day. 13 vegetable or fruit juices every hour beginning with breakfast. Gerson approved oatmeal every breakfast, lunch and dinner both include a soup called Hippocrates, potatoes, another vegetable & salad. Gerson diet has zero animal products, fats, spices, salt, pepper, sugar (other than supplied in nature), avocados, dairy, nuts or seeds. All foods other than the salad are cooked/steamed or baked until it is VERY soft. Obviously removing most of the nutritional value but the goal is for the sick patient to have foods easy to digest so minimal energy is necessary. You are advised not to exercise. The goal is to rest your body so it can heal itself. It is absolutely necessary to hire someone after you leave the clinic for compliance because all food is prepared prior to each meal and juices per hour. Between shopping, preparing and cooking it takes about 13 hours per day to adhere to this protocol. Zero down time. Your spouse and patient would be exhausted both mentally and physically. Our Concerns: 1. The owner is a chiropractor, Patrick Vickers and not an MD. He is present at the clinic when he is available. He says he has the same training in school as an MD but when you ask a medical question he doesn’t want to answer, he refers you to Dr. Martinez who is an MD available at the clinic approximately 9-3 M-F. Dr. Martinez minimally understands and speaks English. Dr. Martinez stayed in his office all day and we personally only spoke with him 4 or 5 times during our 3 weeks stay. Another Dr comes in at 3 and stays until 9 or so. A nurse is on call during nighttime hours. 2. In this clinic there is no “specialized” care. All patients are treated the same way independent of their particular cancer type or health issue. On our 2nd day, Dr. Martinez sat down with us and gave us Tim’s treatment schedule and when we asked some questions, he asked US what type of cancer Tim had. The treatment plans are not customized…. everyone had the same schedule unless one opted not to have the additional options. Same medications, same Gerson Therapy and same basic alternatives. There is absolutely ZERO follow up from the clinic once you leave. You can choose to call them but they will not call you! The owner said less than 10% actually stay on the Gerson Therapy once they leave. They maintain no reliable statistics on THEIR success or failure rates. Shouldn’t one with cancer keep muscles strong and blood flowing by movement? Sitting or lying around is never a good idea, for anyone! 3. Payment for treatment which is between $20-30,000.00 must be paid in cash. You will be told WHY it must be paid in cash…. but we believe that if they take credit cards, an unhappy customer can file a dispute through their credit card which takes their control away. I have yet to find 1 other clinic that did not accept credit card payments. 4. Gerson therapy is a specific diet as well as coffee enemas. Very time consuming for someone to prepare the 5 coffee enemas, meals and 13 juices each and every day for up to 2 years. Juices must be prepared every hour. A typical person will consume 20 pounds of organic food per day which is expensive and difficult to find. Some special equipment is also necessary to purchase. A shopping example would be 50 pounds of carrots and 40 pounds of apples per week, per person. 5. WE CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH TO CHECK OUT THE GERSON THERAPY AND TOTALLY UNDERSTAND BEFORE COMMITTING FINANCES TO THE THERAPY. Gerson Institute has a website, many you tube videos, etc. 6. Check out this article written by 2 MD’s on Quackwatch.org. Search: More Ploys that can Fool You 4/26/19. Examples, “What have you got to lose” and “What sells is not the quality of their logic or products, but the ability to influence”. Patrick Vickers is your only influential contact until you commit to the clinic. 7. This chiropractor did not invent Gerson Therapy. We were told they are not endorsed by “Gerson” because they’ve added additional alternative treatments which doesn’t follow Gerson “exactly” as the treatment was developed by Dr. Gerson himself, who passed away in 1959. We were also told that the “alternative” treatments added in addition to “Gerson Therapy” are because Dr. Gerson, a scientist, would have added them himself because of the scientific information available since 1959. 8. After being treated by Gerson Therapy I can tell you that the nutritional information gathered since 1959 would have also changed his mind on the specifics of the diet as well. But any clinic claiming to be a Gerson clinic must follow Gerson exactly. 9. Disappointed that as a medical clinic, NO blood pressure or body temperature was taken at any time. My experience with the clinic is as follows: My wife and I arrived in April 2019 for a 3 week stay. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The facility is very nice. I chose to add on UV Ozone, GcMAF and dendritic cell therapy to my treatment. After the 1st week, I developed rigors for 55 minutes (uncontrolled shaking and teeth gnashing). Was told the GcMAF can cause this and would only last 10-15 minutes. Over the next few days I developed large welts on my legs. No one knew why, but Dr. Martinez ordered a cream to put on the welts. The welts became less red but never went away until several weeks after returning home. 2 days after returning from the clinic my blood tests revealed my tumor marker had gone from 600-3900 in 23 days! How could this have happened after all of my treatment?? My oncologist suggested I start immediately with chemo knowing full well that I never wanted chemo. My goal from day 1 of my diagnosis was to have alternative treatment only as long as I lived. On the day I was to have my 1st chemo, I was given the routine premeds ONLY and I experienced the rigors again. No chemo would be administered knowing that my infection must be treated first. My oncologist was present and told everyone I had been treated in Mexico recently. Prior to that day, my port had not been accessed since Mexico. Now 2 months later we realize someone treated in Mexico is a red flag to the staff of potential problems and someone with rigors is always a sign of a blood infection. I was rushed to the hospital emergency room where they performed blood cultures, blood tests and an x-ray of my lungs. The x-ray revealed both lungs with large areas of infectious lesions. The blood cultures confirmed a gram-negative bacterium but more time was necessary to confirm which one. During the interim, I was treated with many bags of antibiotics of all varieties so they could try to cover all the bases. After 5 days in the hospital, it was confirmed I had an unusual gram-negative bacterium. ALL gram- negative bacteria are hard to kill! My infectious MD told me that based on her years of experience there is no doubt in her mind that his bacterial blood infection came from Mexico and from access to the port. Usually the port must be replaced, but I was lucky! After 5 days on antibiotics in the hospital and an additional 2 weeks on antibiotics at home, my gut will never recover. Patrick Vickers (chiropractor) denies any responsibility because he didn’t have a fever or show other signs. BUT THEY DID NOT EVER TAKE HIS TEMPERATURE. The infectious MD also said no one with a PORT SHOULD EVER BE IN A JACQUIZZI!! I saw the staff clean it out but was refilled with Mexico water from a garden hose. We have spoken with other patients whom have returned with tumor markers increased and an educated guess says it’s because of the amount of sugar on the Gerson diet. Dr. Vickers will tell you that the cancer cells thrives on fats and processed carbs, but not sugar. If so, why does cancer light up on a Petscan after sugar consumption. My tumor marker increased from 600 to 3900 in 23 days. An educated guess would be that my body was working so hard to heal the bacterial infection, that everything else was useless and I wasted my money. Since the blood infection was a result of something they did in their clinic, we requested a refund of the amount we paid $27,190 from Patrick Vickers but he will assume no responsibility. I have not requested anything for the pain, suffering, gut torn up, etc. that has occurred. It was a mistake but non the less, a mistake, that I paid dearly for. Buyer beware of this clinic. Don’t make a decision based on this or any clinic saying they are your only hope…..many will take advantage of our vulnerabilities and finances in a time of crisis.

Keri, August, 2019
Medical Condition : Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Stage 1
Treatment Center: Gerson Clinic Northern Baja, Mexico | ( Mexico )

If you are looking for a Gerson Center to go to, go to NBGC!

When my husband and I first decided that he would do the Gerson Therapy to treat the cancer, it was overwhelming. I wasn’t really sure what to do and how to accomplish doing the therapy successfully. We didn’t have the money to go to the clinic, but felt the Lord telling us to go to the Northern Baja Gerson Center (NBGC). The Lord provided the funds and we went in January of 2018. Everyone that we met were genuine, knowledgeable and kind. They really took an interest in who we were and wanted to help. While my husband did his daily treatments, I spent my days in the kitchen with the different chef’s. I knew that the best way to support my husband was to learn how to cook properly. The chefs were patient, knowledgeable and eager to share what they knew. They have become like family to us! Everyone from Dr. Patrick to the drivers made our stay memorable. My husband has since gone back and plans on trying to go back annually. His blood tests have all come back clean and healthy. The Gerson Therapy works and the staff at NBGC are first class. I went there feeling scared, confused and unsure of the therapy. I left there feeling empowered, driven and ready to support my husband through this intense therapy. If you are looking for a Gerson Center to go to, go to NBGC!!!

The “No Speaking Spanish” Carmen, July, 2019
Medical Condition : Neuroendocrine tumor of pancreas head
Treatment Center: Gerson Clinic Northern Baja, Mexico | ( Mexico )

It was intense

It was intense because I chose so many additional therapies in addition to the Gerson diet and protocol. I did immunotherapy , ozone IV therapy, GcProtein and Laetrile along with the 3 juices, 5 coffee inemas and castor oil treatments between oxygen hyperbarics. I chose the additional because I wanted my best chance at avoiding surgery. Whipple was my option. I think I had great results. I’m feeling great between healing reactions of course and I have seen my lymph nodes shrink to normal size. I had a tumor on my neck and back that no doctor wanted to test that are almost now gone. I feel like I found another way to get better that didn’t involve such a radical surgery. I’m hoping I’m the months to come that my scans show it is going or gone. Gerson is not for the person wanting a majic bullet. Patience and a positive attitude are required. Please start preparing yourself to be in an open and receiving mindset if you are planning to seek treatment in this or any clinic in Mexico. Aftercare when back in the states also takes patience because again it is a waiting and working game. You just work at the protocol while you wait. Americans are just not trained in this type of mentality When it comes to medicine. I’m celebrating my improvements one day at a time 🙌🙌🙌🙌

Rosy, May, 2019
Medical Condition : Cancer, squeamish cell carcinoma on vulva
Treatment Center: CHIPSA Hospital | ( Mexico )

The treatments worked wonders for my wife

My wife was at the clinic Nov/Dec 2017 as an out-patient, we were picked up at the Airbnb place we rented, by the hospital every day and got transportation back to the residence. The cost was $24'000 for 3 week treatment. The treatments worked wonders for my wife. The diet (modified Gerson diet) is a bit boring, but if you have cancer then it is a small thing to endure. We felt a nice care given by the really friendly staff. The treatments included a low dose chemo, vitamin B17 (Leatrite) IV, high dose of vitamin C with K3 IV's, Coley's bacteria treatment shot(for waking up the immune system) vitamin B12 shots, Ozone blood infusion, hyperbaric oxygen treatment (2x atmospheric pressure with pure oxygen to breath in), 3 times a day coffee enemas, infrared heat treatment, Gerson diet with many juiced drinks etc. Perhaps looking back it would have been good to get a thorough assessment with the doctors before discharge, and perhaps she would have survived if she stayed longer? We took 3 month worth of treatment medication home ($8000) but the medication was not enough to prevent my wife's cancer to rear it's ugly effect again. By the time we realized that she was failing fast, we could not travel again back to Chipsa. After 1/2 a year passed by she went to be with the Lord.
