About Dr. Tony Jimenez

DR. ANTONIO JIMENEZ, MD, ND, is the Founder and Chief Medical Officer of the world-renowned Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers, a leading name in integrative oncology with two first-class locations in Tijuana and Cancun, Mexico. Established in 2000, Hope4Cancer’s Tijuana treatment center is a certified inpatient hospital and official member of the Baja California Hospitals Association, while Hope4Cancer’s Cancun treatment center (founded in 2015) serves outpatients in one of the world’s premier medical tourism destinations. 


For over 25 years, Dr. Jimenez has dedicated his life to the study, clinical research, and implementation of non-toxic and integrative strategies to treat cancer, chronic infections, and immune disorders. Today, he is one of the most trusted voices in the world of integrative cancer therapy. His credentials include an MD from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara Faculty of Medicine in Mexico and an ND from the Trinity School of Natural Health in Indiana, USA, as well as a medical license in Spain.


Among his most significant innovations, Dr. Jimenez developed and coined the 7 Key Principles of Cancer TherapyTM,  a revolutionary framework for healing that, since the 1990’s, has formed the basis of all his integrative protocols. Applied with a diverse toolkit of non-toxic treatments, including Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy (SPDT) and several biological immunotherapies, these principles are the foundation for a comprehensive healing program that targets both the cancer and the biological terrain that causes and feeds its growth. Standing the test of time, these principles are consistent with scientific concepts developed in later years, such as the 10 (Biological) Hallmarks of Cancer and the 4 Physical Traits of Cancer, that validate the ideas of systems biology and the complex tumor microenvironment.


Known for his active involvement in the education of his medical staff, including over 25 MD physicians, oncologists, and interventional radiologists, Dr. Jimenez is an avid educator who shares his wisdom with professional, patient and general interest audiences across the world. In 2020, he launched a free, biweekly webinar series, through which he educates global audiences on wide-ranging healing topics for the body, mind, and spirit. His dedication to learning, training, and researching new approaches for treating cancer has brought him to more than 70 countries, where he has been featured as a guest speaker in various online symposiums, conferences, docuseries, interviews, and documentaries. His work has been published in several peer-reviewed articles, and his desire to learn and innovate is reflected in his active support and participation in patient-focused, in-house research and development work.


Some of Dr. Jimenez’ most notable appearances include Fran Drescher’s Cancer Schmancer Health Summits (2016-2020), the Ask Dr. Nandi show, and The Truth About Cancer Live Symposiums (2016, 2017) and docuseries: Quest for the Cures: Final Chapter (2021), Eastern Medicine – Journey Through Asia (2019), The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest (2015) and The Quest for the Cures … Continues (2014).

 At the core of Hope4Cancer® Treatment Centers unique treatment philosophy is a revolutionary thought: treat the person, not just the disease. 


Every Hope4Cancer patient receives a personalized treatment program, tailored to their individual needs and strategically constructed to address the physical, mental, and emotional roots of cancer. This comprehensive approach utilizes the 7 Key Principles of Cancer Therapy as a foundation for restoring the body’s natural ability to heal while directly targeting cancer cells via the world’s latest and safest non-toxic therapies. 


Identified by founder and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tony Jimenez, each principle addresses an aspect of the mind, body, or spirit that cancer affects. True healing requires every principle to be part of the treatment equation; when these elements work in tandem, quality of life improves and an internal environment which no longer supports cancer is created. 


Hope4Cancer’s immersive approach focuses on education throughout the treatment experience and includes a supportive home program, giving patients the resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle even after their return home. Dr. Tony and the Hope4Cancer staff firmly believe that patients should be an integral part of the decision-making process when it comes to their own healing. The Hope4Cancer program is designed to empower patients with knowledge and resources, restoring autonomy and allowing patients to take control of their healing experience. 


Carrying more non-toxic therapies under one roof than any other facility, Hope4Cancer is a world leader in treatment modalities. Pioneering innovative and effective treatments like Photodynamic Therapy and Immunotherapy, Dr. Tony and his medical staff are a dedicated team of experts and specialists on the cutting-edge of research and technology. 


From medical and administrative staff alike, patients receive top level care throughout their healing journey and continue to receive support even after leaving Hope4Cancer. Proudly acting as a home away from home for individuals seeking care, Hope4Cancer has cultivated a safe environment for patients to become part of a lifelong community, comprised of fellow patients, survivors, loved ones, medical and nursing staff.

Episode Highlights with Dr. Tony


  • The Hope4Cancer center in Tijuana is an inpatient-therapy center, All doctors are all Mexican licensed MD's, nutritionists, nurses, and more.  Most patients come for 3 weeks at a time, and return home for 3 months of implementation.

  • The Hope4Cancer Treatment Center Cancun, is an outpatient center, usually for patients who are more ambulatory, and do not need 24/7 care.

  • The Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers use ozone therapy, detox therapy, IV therapy, sound and light therapy, hyperthermia, personalized nutrition therapy and more to individually treat each patient.

  • There is always hope, even with a cancer diagnosis.

  • We must remove fear, because fear vibrates at a low vibrational frequency, which help fuel cancer cells.  This is why empowering people is so important.


Principle #1:  Immune System

  • Cancer cells have developed ways to “hide” from the immune system, which is why using BioRegulatory methods is crucial for healing from cancer.  Macrophages, an important “policing” cell of the immune system, are suppressed by cancer cells.  One immunotherapy done at the clinics is Macrophage Activation Factor.  This enables the macrophages to work properly and attack the cancer cells, as they are intended.

  • The immunotherapies used at the Hope4Cancer centers differ from the conventional uses of immunotherapies, as the BioRegulatory immunotherapies do not have harmful side effects.

  • 3 Phases of Health and Disease:  Alarm phase (i.e. coughing when you first start smoking,)  Adaptation phase (i.e. coughing goes away,) and Exhaustion phase (COPD, lung cancer, emphysema)

  • Many cancer patients say that they haven’t been sick in a long time.  This is because the immune system has been in exhaustion phase, and can’t mount a response to normal challenges such as a common cold.


Principle #2: Nutrition

  • The Garden Food Plan – the closer we are to the garden in our nutrition, the healthier we will be.  

  • Top three non-food nutritional factors that affect people in regards to cancer are: glyphosate, aluminum (in kitchen utensils,) and WiFi.

  • Avoid dairy, gluten, GMO, and sugar to prevent any disease, including cancer.


Principle #3:  Detoxification

  • Drink adequate, clean water.  Exercise to detox.  Support elimination pathways, make sure bowel movements are moving minimum of 1-2 times per day.  Support sweating via infrared sauna, or exercise.

  • When cancer cells migrate from one area of the body to another, they must have a “guide” to get them there.  These “guides” are the heavy metals, viruses, pathogens from the terrain of the original tumor site.  So detoxing these elements from the body goes a long way toward treating and preventing cancer.  This is why terrain theory is so crucial for any effective treatment protocol.

  • When cancerous tumors are treated via surgery and radiation versus a BioRegulatory terrain approach, the tumor can be cut out only to see the cancer later reappearing in another area of the body.

  • Statistically, by 2030 everyone in the United States will experience cancer in their lifetime.

  • Detox the mouth 

  • Detox thoughts and emotions – Timeline therapy


Principle #4: Emotional Work

  • BEST – Behavioral, Emotional, Spiritual Therapy

  • Start your own timeline.  Write down on paper (not electronic device,) and start journaling your emotional, traumatic, or significant experiences throughout life.


Principle #5: Oxygenation

  • Cancer can only survive in non-oxygenated environments.

  • Start simply by learning deep breath-work.  This is a free, effective anti-cancer therapy

  • Literally hug a tree – this helps oxygenate your cells by picking up the frequency of the tree itself

  • Oxygenation therapies at the clinics for patients


Principle #6: Microbiome

  • We have an internal microbiome, and external microbiome.  

  • Pay attention to everything you put on your skin and hair.  Eliminate hair dye.  Pay attention to WiFi, guarding against electro-smog.  Pay attention to your mouth microbiome.  

  • People with breast implants are statistically must higher risk of developing cancer.


Principle #7: Non-Toxic Cancer Therapies

  • Target cancer cells without harming other healthy cells

  • Use of lasers and light-therapies to target the tumors

  • Harvard is finally catching onto these therapies which Hope4Cancer has been using for years


Statistics – 5 year survival data

  • Hope4Cancer statistics vs. National Cancer Institute (NCI) statistics

  • Metastatic Lung Cancer:  

    • At 1 year:  77.8%  vs.  28.1%

    • At 5 years:  35.2%  vs.  5.5%

    • Remember that NCI does not take into account Stage 4 cancer.  They slant their data.  Hope4Cancer does take Stage 4 cancer cases into account with statistics.

  • Metastatic Breast Cancer:

    • At 1 year:  84%  vs.  71.2%

    • At 5 years:  49.5%  vs.  28.0%
