It is a fully licensed hospital with cutting edge facilities and they are accredited by the Institute for Functional Medicine. They offer a holistic and integrative approach to help treat a certain disease and elevate one's immune system to make sure that the disease will not come back.

In this episode, Bill shared a story of a mother who is a lung cancer patient from Canada who underwent a series of medical treatments locally. At a certain point during her treatment, the doctor told her to set her affairs in order and plan for her funeral because there was nothing more they could do to treat her. She sought help online and found Sanoviv where she was placed under the Intensive Cancer Program which shrank her tumor by 80% in a very short time.

Find out in detail what the multi-pronged and aggressive approach Sanoviv uses to help treat patients with cancer and other diseases.
