I just came across a blog of a English lady with metastasized breast cancer. She has done all she can together with her oncologist, but the cancer is too strong and there is nothing that can be done for her exept palliaive and pain management. But an alternative clinic called Oasis of Hope in Mexico say they can cure also terminal cancer. She went there for a couple of weeks, but it didn’t help, cost her £20,000. She took huge amount of supplements from Oasis, costs over £200 a month, didn’t work. The clinic was about £20,000 and they have told her she needs to go there again if she wants to be cured. So she needs another 20,000 But shes out of money so now she is asking people on her blog to sponsor her. And it won’t help and they will have robbed her of every penny. But at least she has hope, T isaacs would say. I think it’s degrading to treat sick people like that, just sucking them dry until there’s nothing left.
Here is some on the Oasis of Hope: http://www.gratisweb.com/carlosmuro/index.htm
This is from the website of Peter Moran, it’s an evaluation of a number of treatments of alternative clinics, one of which is Dr. Contreras’ Clinic, aka Oasis of Hope: http://www.users.on.net/~pmoran/cancer/Alternative_studies.htm
sorry those sites weren’t clearly translated into english very well
perhaps this is a better site

This clinic has been running for years, if so many people are being ripped off and dying as a result of their carelessness, how are they able to still operate and successfully run the clinic?
You could ask yourself:
– why are their treatments not in the health insurance package? Then many more people could go there and it wouldn’t at least suck them dry financially.
– if they can cure interminable cancer, why haven’t they made their findings public? When a doctor has found something that can save the lives of millions of people, he his bound by his professional ethics to publish, so that his findings can be reviewed and everyone can reap the benefits of it. But no, what do we have? the same old testimonials again. Several times, Jli has explained at large here what the problem is with that.
You ask have we any ideas why the clinic is still running after all this time. Well, I think it is because dr Contreras is just very good at deceiving people. But that’s just my personal opinion.
Very good post. Usefully…
The desperation of wanting to believe false hope.
Snake-oil and health salvation sold with false promises to the gullible.
QFT. And there should be laws against abusing the desperate. It’s one of the most disgraceful things a person can do in my opinion.
These so-called ‘healers’ don’t give a rat’s ass about others – it’s a power trip that strokes their over inflated self-importance.
At one time they might have had a legitimate desire to help others, but it has been completly corrupted to feeding the addiction of a self-made mystique and delusions. They stubbornly repeat the same garbage and cajole others to believe too, meanwhile destroying their victims. As they lose their followers, they are constantly searching out more.
They skirt the laws by misrepresentation, ‘practicing’ outside of their home countries, and never taking responsibility for their actions when they prove to be detrimental to their ‘patients’.
Many of these “healers” give me the impression that it’s much more about them than about their patients. They want to be worshipped and admired, calling themselves geniuses, looking down on regular scientists (all closed-minded simpletons, incapable of thinking “outside the box” – God, am I sick of hearing this expression!), parading themselves as saviours of mankind, with a colossal vanity. I think many of them have deep psychological problems, like extreme narcissism and delusions of grandeur. My opinion of most of these people is just not very good. Everyone who knows how hard work science and medicine is, is bound to feel this way.
^^^^^ Facts, not opinions.
Also notice the variations of ‘it’s clinicaly proven’ (what clinic trials? When? Where? How??)
Ye olde ‘testimonials’ – they said they felt better! (where is the legitimate diagnosis/prognosis/follow ups?)
It’s all natural !! – see my screen name…
THEY don’t want to cure you but I will – the Trudeau syndrome
Blaming ‘mainstream’ treatments for the failures, “You didn’t come to me first, not my problem my ‘cure’ failed”
And so on….
I just wanna go postal on these [looong string of expletives] wastes of space.
If they don´t violate mexican law they have no problem in continuing their business. Unethical behaviour is not necessarily illegal. With such high prices, most of their customers are probably foreigners. So the mexican authorities probably don´t see any reason to make it a priority to take a critical look at what is going on there. Recruiting customers is easily done through the internet.

My mother was killed by chemotherapy, in which the hospital bill is over $400,000 USD. They destroyed my family and continue to destroy families. I think this website is a cancer industry sponsered fraud. Chemotherapy does not and has never worked with the exception of Testicle and lymphoma in children, and has only made your sponsers/group billions in profit from the suffering. You must try to find another job, one that does not support the lies. Just think of the families that might believe you and have chemo, which has a 2% success survival in 5 years. worse than any industry or placebo
Ah, that lie again. We blogged about that too.
2 % success is a published fact, and you and your chemo sponsors can try to spin it with your wallstreet math, but with all the family members that have suffered from your lies should have the right to know who you are? where you live, where do you sell your chemo treatments and what are your survival rate?
please for all visitors of this site it is important that you hear from family members like the following link and see the lies and torture, that the sponsor of this site do
And me again:
Shame on you that you want us to fall for that urban legend again.
September 2, 2009:
Is It True That Only 2 Or 3 % Of Cancer Patients Survive Chemotherapy?
on the end:
So… now what?
The data from the study are from 1998. We are now in 2009 and progress has been made in those years. There is better medication to diminish side effects of chemotherapy. There is new, sophisticated technology to assess which breast cancers are prone to metastasize and which are not, resulting in less women having to undergo chemotherapy. Scientists are working hard on similar tests for other cancers.
There are over 80 different kinds of chemotherapy. Some are sheer hell, but many are quite doable, including the one I had. Nevertheless: chemotherapy still is the ultimate cancer scare factor and the sooner we can do without it, the better. But it is not true that only 2-3% survive chemotherapy. It is not true that the average benefit of chemotherapy to 5-year survival is as low as 2%. And it is also not true that all chemotherapy is by definition completely and totally unbearable.
If we really want to get anywhere at all, then honesty about the facts, not manipulation, self-aggrandizing and scare mongering, should be the basis for discussion and decision making.
I don’t sell chemo and I am not sponsored by anyone.
What is this obsession of quackery supporters to think that anyone who offers a contrary opinion is paid to do so??
What? Weren’t we the Illuminati?
Dammit girls, I had hopes, you know?
And today, in quoting for truth:
The sooner we can do without it, the better.
I second that!
Very good blog!
