No. Our approach to preventing and healing cancer covers everyone from very late stage cancer patients to those who are healthy but concerned about getting cancer.
What if I’m undergoing conventional cancer treatment?
If you are undergoing conventional treatments and want to maximise results and reduce the side effects, we can help before, during and after your treatment.
What if I’m a cancer survivor or I’m concerned about a cancer risk?
If you are concerned about cancer returning, have a predisposition to cancer or a compromised immune system, we provide comprehensive prevention plans.
What if I’m looking for alternative medical approaches?
If conventional treatments have been ineffective or you have been advised that conventional treatments are not appropriate, we can provide alternative solutions.
Can I safely use alternative or complementary therapies?
All of our treatments are safe, clinically and scientifically proven to work. They are all backed by many research papers and case studies. If you would like information on a specific treatment, please contact us and we will explain in further detail.
Can I use my insurance policy?
This depends on the kind of insurance cover that you have, however, many of our patients have been reimbursed for all or part of their treatment. We can assist with completion of insurance forms, if necessary.
Will I have to pay for a second opinion from Verita Life?
No. If you have questions or would like a second opinion, please schedule a consultation with our doctors at no cost.
What is a typical day’s treatment at a Verita Life clinic?
You will be driven to the clinic by 9.30 a.m by hotel shuttle or other transport as agreed and depending on the accommodation option chosen. First contact will be to update staff on how you feel, your night’s sleep and to check vital signs. Breakfast is served and the first IV infusion of the day is given. At 10 a.m, a mental relaxation technique is provided to help manage stress and feel calm.
Around 11 a.m, depending on the patient’s treatment schedule, there will be a one hour private treatment such as a Colonic Therapy, a Lymphatic Drainage, EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen Therapy), or a Hyperthermia Session.
In addition to formal consultations and tests, the medical staff and doctors will be available at most times for any questions. It is an informal environment and patients are encouraged to take maximum interest in their own treatment goals.
Following the morning treatments, lunch is served in either the IV room or the dining area. Most afternoons you will continue with another IV infusion as well as taking a second private treatment.
During the afternoon we may conduct education classes, helping you learn more about your own body, how to fight off cancer and stop it from returning. Most days your treatment will be complete by about 5p.m when you will return to the hotel.
Your complete dinner and drinks are packed up to take home for the evening meal.
What are the steps to becoming a Verita Life patient?
The first step is contacting one of our experienced Patient Representatives who will discuss your condition, explain our treatments and services, and answer your initial questions.
Next, should you be interested in moving to the next step of having a doctor’s consultation, you will be offered an appointment slot, and be asked to upload your medical records through our secure portal in advance for review by our oncology doctors. This consultation can take place via Skype or we can telephone you.
During the consultation, the doctor will discuss your case, circumstances and treatment options in detail. There is no charge for either the records review or doctor’s consultation.
If you decide to have treatment, the third step will be preparing for travel to our clinics.
You may need to complete some additional medical tests. Our patient coordinator will discuss financial matters and also insurance if applicable.
Can I come for treatment by myself?
Many patients do, however, it is recommended that a friend or family member accompanies you during your treatment program if possible. If needed, out-of-clinic care (a helper or nurse) can be arranged at a reasonable cost.
What happens when I arrive in Thailand or Mexico for treatment?
You will be fast tracked through airport immigration and our staff will accompany you in a private car to your hotel. On arrival at the clinic you will meet the full medical team for final evaluation and they will explain and agree on your exact treatment plan.
Sometimes additional tests will be conducted and certain treatments will only begin after a few days. We are here to help throughout this process and we will be available for questions and help at all times.
What happens when I return home following treatment?
Cancer is a journey whether you are late stage, under early diagnosis, or in partial or full remission.
We understand that for a variety of reasons patients may not remain at a clinic indefinitely. They may need ongoing, post-clinical support to remain cancer-free or continue to attack their cancer in other medical or residential settings.
We offer patients various options and programmemes between visits or once they are discharged.
It starts with education on key lifestyle changes, nutrition and supplements but also focuses on periodic top up treatments. Our personalised cancer treatment plans provide cancer-defense and help optimise immune strength.
Communication is important, and our caring medical team welcomes regular updates and questions from all our former patients.
