Mexican Clinics

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, see Peter 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.

Bio-Medical Center (Hoxsey Clinic) was founded in 1963 by Mildred Nelson. Ms. Nelson, a nurse, began working for Harry Hoxsey in 1946 at his clinic in Dallas, Texas. At Harry Hoxsey's urging, Mildred Nelson opened the Bio-Medical Center in Tijuana, Mexico, 3 miles south of the U.S. border. Over the years, Mildred expanded the center’s treatment offerings and hired a fully licensed, English-speaking staff. She assembled professional support personnel to meet the needs of the thousands of patients who visit Bio-Medical Center every year. Most of the original medical staff and support personnel have remained through the years, and the clinic continues to provide accessible and economical medical help.
Before her death in 1999, Mildred continued Harry Hoxsey’s legacy by appointing her sister Liz Jonas as chief administrator. Today, the Hoxsey legacy of healing lives on at the Bio-Medical Center.
