Please note that over the last year several Mexican
Clinics have been temporarily closed. Some are allowed to re-open either
completely or with some restrictions on what services they can provide. Bio-Pulse and Century
Nutrition were shut down in March 2001. For more information on these closures,
Chowka's article on Natural Healthline's website.
We understand that many of the health inspectors in Mexico about this time were
fired and replaced. Apparently any clinic that does not have the appropriate permits will
be closed. If we hear about any other closures, we will post the information on
this page. Other clinics impacted have been: St. Jude (Jimmy Keller's clinic),
Century Nutrition may be prohibited from providing some
therapies. American Metabolics and American Biologics were temporarily shut down, but they
they all reopened. If any hospital is using
"unproven" approaches or does not have all the proper permits, they
may be temporarily shut down to get the proper permits. Any of the clinics that
are found to have their papers in order could potentially resume offering
alternative therapies if the Mexican federal government approves their requests
to conduct experimental treatments. We have heard that they would be limited to
a small number of patients and could not charge the patients for experimental
treatments. We have not confirmed this.
See our January
Newsletter for a write up on why people go to Mexican Clinics.
If you do go to this clinic for
treatment, be sure to let us know about your experience. Any feedback you can
offer may help others who are trying to decide which clinic to go to or which
therapy to use.
