Diane R.Lyme Program Hyperthermia
Even though I was there for medical treatment, it also felt like I was staying at a resort which helped me to relax more. Everyone was so kind and helpful. Having knowledgeable doctors that understand what you are going through and do not think your crazy. This helped me out in so many ways (mind, body, and spirt). Dr. Gisell Garcia was the best!! We felt so comfortable with her because she truly LISTENS to you and understood each of our concerns. Whatever it was that we asked her, she didn’t make you feel like it was a silly questions (unlike the doctors here in the states). Being heard, acknowledge, and understood meant the world to us. She has such a calming demeanor. Truly blessed that we had her!!!
Beth M.Integrative Physical
i am very pleased with the amount of testing I was able to get in such short amount of time — very comprehensive physical. Exponentially better than any hospital I’ve ever been to.
Nathan L.Lyme Program Hyperthermia
Dr Giselle Garcia was fabulous! She is very knowledgeable about Lyme and listened with compassion which is so refreshing! She always explained things super well. She surpassed our expectations. We loved the quiet friendly place where we could unplug and focus on healing and restoring what was lost. Feeling so much better now! I feel like I can go into life with energy and a clear mind now! It all seems possible again!
Aaron C.Cancer Treatment Program
My integrative doctor recommended Sanoviv. The tumor growth was potentially going to cause secondary problems with back flow to the kidneys. I had also lost 50 lbs, low appetite, pain, low energy, muscle loss. The experience at Sanoviv was excellent and far more of a medical facility combined with a whole body approach than anything else I have experienced. Dr. Ortega was always focused on me as his patient. No rush, no shortcuts, answered all questions in a kind and thoughtful way. He is very easy to understand and communicated well with me answering my concerns and explaining what he recommended. He exceeded our expectations. Dr. Guardado was a thoughtful, kind person also and was a liaison for Dr. Ortega when he couldn’t take the appt. Dr. Pacheco on the medical floor was especially helpful when I had questions after hours. She is a kind and very capable physician. The treatments reduced tumor significantly. No threat to kidneys at this time. Appetite improved … pain managed, potential for increased weight and muscle tone in near future with added protein to diet.
We both feel like a major plus to the experience at Sanoviv is the camaraderie and Band of Brothers experience with the other patients and companions. We felt very much like we were all in the same boat and encouraged and cared for each other while we were there. The atmosphere at Sanoviv is conducive to this unique experience of getting to know people from many different places with the same objective…to get the best care available and achieve the goal of getting well. We have made many friends that we will continue to have in our lives.
Sarah R.Lyme Program Hyperthermia
My Sanoviv experience was like heaven on Earth. At the end of my stay, I felt more healthy, vibrant and alive than I have in many years. I also left with many tools to continue my healing at home through healthy mind body practice, meditation, cooking and upkeep with my body. I LOVED EVERY MOMENT AND WOULD LOVE TO COME BACK!
The quick timing and stacked schedules were very beneficial. I appreciated the ability to get quick lab results and have access to chiropractor, doctor, colon hydrotherapy and IVs all in the same day. Your program for Lyme seems to be dialed in perfectly and the combination of treatments throughout each day was wonderful. I think the hyperthermia was the most beneficial treatment for my condition as well as colon hydrotherapy. Definitely life changing!!!
Carol M.Cancer Treatment Program
My experience at Sanoviv was excellent. It is a beautiful facility, clean and well maintained. I felt very safe there. I have triple negative breast cancer. I was very run down after receiving chemo treatments in the states. I had very low energy and poor bloodwork results. Had neuropathy in right foot and severe tinnitus in right ear. I have never been a big vegetable eater, so getting all those vegetables at every meal was difficult for me. My nutritionist was very helpful at trying to find foods for me to eat. I thought the shakes were very good and the food service was excellent. During my treatments, I was kept informed. I liked being able to talk to a doctor every day and having one available on weekends. I was having cancer pain and they did not give up until they they found the right pain reliever for me. Now, my neuropathy, tinnitus, bloodwork and energy levels have all greatly improved. Overall feeling much better.
Esther P.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
I loved all of the staff, the exceptional and very scientifically sound medical care, and time spent talking with all the other patients. I really could fill pages and pages about what I loved about Sanoviv and how grateful I am that I got to go there. The hyperthermia treatments had the most profound impact on my health. All of the treatments before and after the hyperthermia treatments were supportive to this. I was impressed by how planned out and systematic my experience at Sanoviv was. Things were very well organized and there was also flexibility to the schedule as needed. Before going to Sanoviv, I had not been able to tolerate exercise for 17 years. I always felt exhausted like a had a heavy noose around my neck constantly. I was always tired. While at Sanoviv I started exercising for the first time in 17 years and have been exercising ever since then and building up my endurance, which is an incredible breakthrough and gift. For instance, one day I walked up 25 flights of stairs for exercise and another day I ran 25 minutes. Before Sanoviv I could only run 5 minutes and then would be exhausted. Thank you to everyone at Sanoviv. Your care and compassion have had a profound impact on my life and I appreciate you all so much.
Karen G.Assisted Medical Cancer, Surgical Program
All of the services that I received contributed to my recovery. From hyperthermia to the psychology and mind body therapy all changed my life for the better. My health has improved totally and completly. I left with being able to breathe and walk. I have color in my cheeks again and I feel really good. The staff was so welcoming and helpful. The dining staff was great and accommodating. I am not used to eating so healthy, so many veggies. The staff did their absolute best to give me what I wanted and what I really needed. Dr Gonzalez and Dr Ortega were both wonderful. They could explain the issues with compassion and understanding. They answered all of my questions and more than met with my expectations. The nursing staff is some of the finest people I have ever been cared for. They are patient, caring, helpful, highly educated, and compassionate.
Nancy O.Integrative Physical
I came to make sure I am healthy before trying to conceive. Sanoviv was life-changing. I’ve made changes to my life at home after being inspired by the way Sanoviv does things. The clean, chemical-free environment, the friendly staff, the view, the air, the tranquility and the amazing food. It has absolutely changed my life. Dr Quintero helped me feel at ease about some concerns I had. He reassured me and made me feel a lot better. I have cut out specific foods per doctors orders. I have upped my supplement regiment. I am more mindful of my sleep time and my routine. Yes, I feel that my health has improved.
James Z.Integrative Physical
I think that, in my case, the blood testing was extremely important and beneficial to give an overall snapshot of my current health status. My EKG showed a slight irregularity that I will need follow up testing for, so that may have changed my life. Also, I really enjoy and get a lot out of the nutrition counseling. I loved my time with Sue and her presentation on Tuesday night. She is a great resource with awesome recommendations. It is so nice to have everything done in one place and get a chance to discuss the complete findings in the binder with my doctor. Dr. Ulloa was excellent. He was very informative and took the time to answer any questions I had, along with giving me some great feedback to help me live an even healthier lifestyle along with recommending further treatments and care. I absolutely loved the food and the snacks. We are looking to change our diets to more plant based and the exceptional food and presentation at Sanoviv has given us hope that we can do it without compromising taste and variety.
Roger T.Integrative Physical
I absolutely loved it. Although I did not appear to be sick like some of the other patients, there was great value in learning that Im I pretty good shape. For example, I smoked for years and have always been worried about developing lung cancer. My healthy x-rays took care of that concern! Dra. Armonia was awesome. Ive never had a doctor provide such useful information. She combined competency with great caring which is sadly lacking in the US. I enjoyed meeting with her enormously and found her instantly trustworthy. She has a wonderful bedside manner which instantly put me at ease. I really cant say enough good things about her! I loved my Sanoviv experience and plan on returning every year or so for a check up.
Jolene S.Integrative Physical & Stem Cell Rejuvenation
This was the most amazing experience, from start to finish, the genuine care, dedication, testing, staff—everything ! I have zero second thoughts about going and am truly amazed at what was accomplished in two weeks, compared to the last 8 years at home. I liked the extent of the testing etc., and the care of the entire team of people working on my health. Discovering the issues with my spine and subsequently seeing the orthopedic surgeon (while still at Sanoviv) has made a huge improvement in my pain level and mobility. As well, I am already seeing improvements from the stem cells only 1 month in !!!
Leslie M.Integrative Physical & Detox
It changed our lives, helped us heal old wounds that have been festering for many years. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about healing inside and out. How kind and loving all of the staff and doctors were.. I felt like they actually cared about our well being and healing journey.
I was able to get answers on some health issues that no one could figure out. I also found things that I didn’t know i had. Love everything in the quiet room!. Seaweed wrap was awesome . Raymondo was amazing. The Body coding with both Karen and Jenny were extremely powerful. Had huge healing experiences with both of them. Loved Dr. Rodriguez, she is just amazing…
Jolene S.Stem Cell Rejuvenation & Surgery
This was the most amazing experience, from start to finish, the genuine care, dedication, testing, staff–everything! I have zero second thoughts about going and am truly amazed at what was accomplished in two weeks, compared to the last 8 years at home. Discovering the issues with my spine and subsequently seeing the orthopedic surgeon (while still at Sanoviv) has made a huge improvement in my pain level and mobility. As well, I am already seeing improvements from the stem cells only 1 month in !!! Before coming, I had lots of pain throughout spine, hips- fatigued 6/7 days, and many other side effects from the medication. While I am still healing, there is pretty much zero pain anymore, just soreness–which is amazing. I have been sleeping better, waking up a lot more refreshed and I have noticed an increase in my energy levels. As well, my anxiety and depression is the best it has been in years! My experience actually exceeded my expectations! Going through surgery alone, in another country where I don’t speak the language is intimidating, and yet was the best surgical experience I’ve had. 100% due to the genuine care and kindness of the staff, and their attentiveness. I actually felt like people cared about me getting better for the first time.
Brooke R.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
It was a very good experience. I’m happy with the care I received and will refer people. The most beneficial part was the hyperthermia. Before going to Sanoviv I felt awful! I had been sick for years and couldnt figure out what was wrong despite seeing many doctors and holistic practioners. Now, I am feeling much better! Everything was great. Love Dr Armonia!
Sergei K.Detox & Rejuvenation Program
The environment, all of the staff was truly amazing and the food was delicious and plentiful. It’s hard to pinpoint one specific treatment. I feel the benefit of the combined treatments working together. Great place to visit for overall health improvement but does have some things that can be improved upon. I came for a tune-up. Thank God I’m in great health. I enjoyed the stay last year with my parents and this time came with my wife to go through the detox and rejuvenation program. Feel great, again more aware and informed about the benefits of keeping a healthy diet.
Daphne L.Medical Program
The comprehensiveness of the whole thing. I had done almost everything that Sanoviv offers before, but never all in the same two week period, with no workhome life to focus on. It made a difference. I think that the anti-viral shots have made a difference, I know that the confirmation of being dehydrated and what to do about it has been helpful. I loved the overwhelming attention to detail, everywhere. How the doctors got to interact with patients and their other care providers almost daily, how the kitchen staff carefully took care of every patient… My energy levels have improved a lot.
Ashley T.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
I loved everything. But if I had to pick one aspect it would be the coordination and thoroughness of caremeaning the constant communication between practitioners on a daily basis and the extent to which my primary treating physician took the time to read through my past and current medical records. Second would be the world class care and domain expertise in Lyme and co infections. Tertiary would be how everyone acted with patience and understanding and never made me feel bad about how difficult I was being. As a hyper sensitive patient with neurological and nervous system issues the entire staff could not have dealt with me in a more perfect way. The entire staff exceeded all my expectations. Upon request, Id be more than happy to provide a full written testimonial of my experience. The most beneficial aspects of the medical care and treatments was receiving all supporting treatments in COMBINATION within a controlled and monitored environment to help remain stable during the process. This is what Sanoviv has to offer that patients typically cannot receive anywhere else as most treatments are given one at a time in various outpatient settings and not in unison. The treatment that made the most impact to my health was by far the Hyperthermia.
Brian D.Cancer Treatment Program
I came for Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. My PSA was 318 and now it is 3.6. It was beyond expectations. Every person there is very concerned and attentive. The place has a personal touch and is calm.
Cheralyn L.Detox & Rejuvenation
Sanoviv is the only truly integrative, functional medicine, state-of-the-art program model created for the health of the whole person. I know of no other program as comprehensive for treating illness and supporting health and wellness. I am in awe! The life saving Sanoviv stories I heard about recovery and prevention leave me frustrated with American medicine AND so grateful for what you are doing. It was a fantastic week of education for me. Cholesterol is lowered, energy is back, brain feels clear, stress is greatly reduced
Hildie N.Detox & Rejuvenation
It was a lifetime experience for me. I loved the staff, the guests, and the bond everyone had. I had been pretty positive before I came, but this was so nurturing and refueling that I came home energized.
Laura G.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
Sanoviv is a medical facility that provided whole body healing. I was able to completely relax and unplug for 2 weeks while being cared for on every level … physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. The staff go above and beyond to meet your every need and everyone is so positive. The location is beautiful so I didnt feel like I was in a hospital. I love that everything you need to have done is all in one location and thoughtfully scheduled out. I liked the amazingly friendly, professional and competent staff of workers, nurses and doctors. The delicious food. And the gorgeous location!
Robin W.2-Week Medical Program
I was more than impressed with the whole body approach. I’m already noticing a drastic improvement on how I feel over all.
Yu Ting S.Stem Cell Rejuvenation
I like it very much. comfortable and relaxing. The psychology consultation touched me most this time.
Abe H.Detox & Rejuvenation
Your service was excellent. The massages plus the quiet room made the most difference. Above my expectation, we enjoyed visiting with other patients. I do feel better by rejuvenation.
Barbara C.Medical Treatment Program
Sanoviv was the most comprehensive, all encompassing program I have experienced. The setting by the ocean added a lot of comfort and energy. All of it was very good. It is hard to say what was the most helpful. Probably the mind/body and psychology work. I do feel equipped to do the work of the aftercare to clear the toxins of mold and lead even though I know it will be gruelling at times. I am thankful to have the ability to work with my physician and nutritionist for the next 6 months. I came to Sanoviv with stage 4 adrenal fatigue. Immediately after leaving Sanoviv I had great energy. The first 3 days I did about 12,000 steps each day which is more than my normal. I feel stronger and have more energy but since I am on an ongoing detox program to clear the lead and mold I have days when I feel tired.
Thomas A.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
I had a very positive experience at Sanoviv, mostly because of the professionalism of the staff. They were affable and professional at the same time. I was also impressed with the attention to detail and cleanliness. I learned a lot about Lyme from my doctor, a lot about nutrition from my nutritionist and generally learned anout health.
Matthew M.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
I went to Sanoviv for the Lyme treatment. The two hyperthermia treatments made the most impact on my health. I noticed an immediate improvement in my brain fog and energy levels. It did not immediately cure me, but I know it can take some time to see lasting results. Everything at Sanoviv exceeded my expectations. The food and service were excellent, the location was beautiful, and the sense of community that I felt among the other patients was something I did not expect to find at a medical facility. The doctors and other Sanoviv staff that I worked with were very knowledgeable. Every appointment I had was comprehensive. The nurses were extremely warm, helpful, professional and welcoming. The front desk workers were all very accommodating. My experience at Sanoviv was the best medical experience I have ever had.
Mark E.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
The best thing was just the overall care. Feeling of safe, very accomodating.
Rachel T.Lyme Program with Hyperthermia
This place is amazing! I love how the Drs all work together.
Lezley W.Cancer Treatment Program
I have never in my life experienced this level of caring professionalism and compassion. The kindness and truth provided a space for me that inspite of my stay being cut short it was transformational. And life changing. The premises were immaculate , and the food was exceptional. Every health care provider surpassed any expectation. Even when I had to leave early the process was handled honestly and ethically… truly , there is not one thing I liked best. My intention is to return when im stronger and i am highly recommending Sanoviv to everyone i see. Thankyou! I’m trying to hold that sacred peace and acceptance in my heart up here in Canada moment by moment. Unless you have experienced it you cannot know it….Thank you. I have never recieved such genuine compassion and caring. Everywhere… my doctor … the kitchen staff and the front desk and the gal from billing … this level of consistent kindness is totally life changing.
Kenneth T.Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program
“It is difficult to pick just one favorable feature but i would say i was overwhelmed about the professionalism and the care that was extended by the entire staff at sanoviv. The week at sanoviv, including the hands on demonstration of how important diet is to overall health and vitality, has been a total life changing experience. I came for stem cell rejuvenation of the treatment of parkinsons disease with mild to advanced hand tremors and fatigue. I now have minimal hand tremors and reserves of energy that i have not experienced for a long time. i expect that the tremors will continue to diminish as i get mentally and physically stronger and as the stem cells strengthen the dopamine producing neurons.”
Carol G.Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program
“Made me feel cared for by each professional I met. Staff are well trained and eager to share their knowledge.”
Koyka K.Cancer Treatment Program
“Integrated approach to healthcare and the staff – doctors, nurses and support staff. Very good healing environment. Energy is improved and no pain. All services and treatments i had were excellent.”
Elaine D.Integrative Physical / Medical
“I felt so safe and peaceful at Sanoviv. The staff were all so supportive and friendly. Not only did it give me my life back, but changed it in so many positive ways. More energy, more empowered, more ambition. I never felt hungry and enjoyed foods i didn’t think i liked. I am very excited about getting the recipes so i can continue this kind of diet at home. My doctor absolutely met my expectations, plus.”
Gunal I.Integrative Physical
“Great to get a clear picture of my status of health. The Sanoviv experience as a whole changed my life rather than a specific treatment or therapy. It gave me the courage and motive to adopt a healthier lifestyle. I am feeling much better since i changed my diet by limiting sugar and gluten intake.”
Cheryl B.Medical Treatment Program
“I loved the staff, they are so friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor as Dr. Armonia Rodriguez was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. The food was wonderful and i learned so much. The view and the the rooms were beautiful. My appointments with Dr. Rodriguez, massage, psychologist appointments, learning more about healthy eating. I came for recovery after cancer treatments. It was a chance of a lifetime. I now have more energy, less inflammation, and encouraged to take home what I’ve learned and implement.”
Sonya M.Lyme & Chronic Infectious Disease
“Sanoviv was an experience where every part of me was addressed together – whole body! A beautiful and peaceful atmosphere to promote healing, as well as having the perfect balance of alternating pleasant treatments around those treatments that could be more tough. I was in very bad shape from Lyme and co-infections. Now, I am better by a few notches, and I am hopeful… Before coming there I had started to lose sight of that possibility. I know I am now on the slow road to recovery.”
Brian M.Lyme & Chronic Infectious Disease
“It’s impossible to say what was the most beneficial, but I think that is a good thing. The hyperthermia I believe had the biggest impact on my disease. But it was the cross functional treatments that made the experience so positive. All were equally helpful in their own way. The kindness of the people. The facility was clean and beautiful. Life changing. My Lyme disease made me unable to think, work, or participate in family activities. Now, I feel almost entirely recovered.”
Susan W.Cancer Treatment Program
“Sanoviv for me was an intense, engaging, thorough experience which addressed my Stage 4 cancer on multiple levels simultaneously. It instilled confidence and optimism, as it introduced me to many new treatment modes in the context of a hugely supportive community of staff and fellow patients. The level of involvement and accessibility were outstanding, with flexibility as required when aspects of the program didn’t fit me. ”
Thomas StewartLyme & Chronic Infectious Disease
“ My Sanoviv experience was extraordinary because under one roof, it provided an integrative and holistic approach to healing and wellness that simultaneously treated the body, mind and spirit. The entire staff from top to bottom was very professional, efficient, eternally kind and attentive to whatever needs I had during my busy daily schedule of medical treatments and detox therapies. The two extended hyperthermia sessions to treat my ongoing Lyme disease were the main event for me. Time will tell how effective it was in eliminating the persistent Lyme, but I already feel much improved. So many of my symptoms are gone or are much diminished. A huge part of my treatment plan focused on detoxification and boosting immune function. I now feel totally cleansed and feel that I have accelerated the healing process on my journey back to wellness. UPDATE: I brought my son for Lyme treatment in October 2017, we are both feeling really great after our 107.6F hyperthermia sessions. It seems the high temps killed the Lyme bacteria. We are both getting stronger by the week. We love Sanoviv and I think about my experience there every single day.”
