My first guest is Dr Francisco Contreras, whose father, the late Dr. Ernesto Contreras, Sr. opened the Oasis of Hope Hospital in 1963 and initiated what would become a healing tradition known as the Total Cancer Care Approach. Dr. Contreras is recognized in multiple publications as a pioneer in body, mind, and spirit medicine. At the foundation of his philosophy were two principles inspired by Hippocrates, the father of medicine, and Jesus Christ, The Great Physician: 1) First, do no harm; 2) Love your patient as you love yourself.

Because of his philosophy, Dr. Contreras taught his medical staff to never prescribe treatments that would destroy the quality of life of the patient. He also insisted that Oasis of Hope physicians offer therapies that they would be willing to take if in the same circumstances. His emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship, along with his integration of natural and conventional therapies with emotional and spiritual counseling, were the principle reasons why more than 100,000 patients from 55 nations have come to Oasis of Hope for treatment over the last 45 years. The Oasis of Hope continues under this same philosophy today under the direction of Dr Ernesto Contreras’ son, Dr Francisco Contreras.

Francisco Contreras, MD – Graduated with honors from the prestigious School of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He continued his studies at the University of Vienna, Austria, where he specialized in Surgical Oncology and graduated with honors once more. Dr. Contreras is a cancer specialist recognized as an expert at combining conventional and alternative therapies with emotional and spiritual support. Through his practice, books, interviews and conferences, he shares easy and practical ways to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and chronic illnesses.

As the Board Director and Chairman of the Oasis of Hope Health Group, Dr. Contreras oversees the treatment of 400 cancer patients annually. He received personal instruction from his father, alternative medicine pioneer Dr. Ernesto Contreras, Sr. and has dedicated his career to treating his patients effectively and caringly.
