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.

He is recognized internationally as a cancer expert who combines conventional and alternative treatments with emotional and spiritual support. Currently he oversees the treatment of 400 cancer patients annually.

Dr Contreras graduated with honors from the prestigious School of Medicine of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and continued studies at the University of Vienna, Austria where he specialized in surgical oncology and again graduated with honors. He received personal instruction from his father, Dr Ernesto Contreras, who was a pioneer in alternative medicine.

My focus will demonstrating the holistic approach I used that involved physical, mental and spiritual aspects.

Mind Spirit Body Approach to Cancer Treatment Increases Cancer Survival Rates

In his discussion last Saturday of cancer treatment at the Oasis of Hope, Dr Francisco Contreras talked about the Integrative Regulatory Therapy at his hospital that integrates physical-mental-and spiritual aspects of health into the treatment plans and interventions for cancer patients. He also discussed how their success rate for various types of cancer survival were 2 to 15 times more successful than in other hospitals and attributes this success to the holistic focus.

There is ample research to substantiate the value of a holistic approach to health and illness recovery. Hundreds of studies have been completed on meditation and results show improvement in physical health such as reduced blood pressure, decreased need for medical care, decreased chronic pain, depression and anxiety, and increased mobility and activity among others. Another area researched is the influence of positive attitudes on physical health. In one study by Kamen-Siegel he found that optimism influenced the immune system in a positive way using a sample of 300 elderly people and Ranard found similar results in another study and concluded that hopeful people have a more robust immune system. Likewise, Friedman and ValdenBos found that enthusiastic people tended to be more resilient, self-healing people and that enthusiasm is correlated with recovery from illness. In another study Shekelle found that hostility had a negative effect on health.
Benson found that when under stress individuals experience increases in blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing rates that strain the body and lower its immunity. On the other hand he also found that repeating a prayer, word, sound, phrase or movement such as in prayer, meditation, tai chi or yoga had a healthy effect.
Matthews and Clark say that in 75% of 325 studies reviewed the finding indicate that involvement in religious activities benefits health and well being.
These are just a few of the many studies that have looked at the effect of mental and spiritual activities on physical health and recovery from illness but support the results found by Dr Contreras in the recovery of cancer patients in his hospital.
In my own life I found this concept of holism to be true and demonstrated when I had lung cancer and was given 6 months to live—-33 years ago. I believe the holistic approach accounted for my recovery and continued good health.
