Comment on Do Amish visit doctors? by Lattice.
Many Amish will go to Mexico for treatment of cancers that are either refractive to the chemotherapeutic agents they have received in the U.S., or for “alternative” treatments. It is not difficult to find plenty of information about it by searching Google. You can call one clinic and they can direct you to another, more appropriate one.
Mexico has pharmaceutical companies that produce medications for treating cancer that the FDA either will not begin testing (because the developer can’t afford to “buy” a clinical trial…don’t get me started on the FDA!) or is still testing, or even drugs that didn’t “pass the test.”
Mexican clinics usually tout pretty good numbers, considering that the majority of U.S. patients are extremely sick before trying them.
