Affordable & Safe Propofol Treatments for ALS Patients in Puerto Vallarta

IIB Medical

July 8, 2013

At IIB Medical, our goal is to provide affordable and safe Propofol treatments for ALS patients. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

ALS patients who have received Propofol have recently reported feeling better and reversal of their ALS condition. Although we recognize that these reports are anecdotal and not (yet) supported by scientifically gathered data, we also recognize that ALS patients have no other effective treatments.

Propofol is safe if it is administered in a modern hospital such as Amerimed in Puerto Vallarta with a team familiar with the drug. We want ALS patients to have a safe and affordable place to be treated with Propofol and other emerging treatments.

The fee is $1500 USD per treatment. Contact IIB Medical for a custom quote on a membership plan if you seek frequent and ongoing procedures

Note About Fees

Be wary of lower fees, as the cost of a modern hospital facility, and a qualified team are such that significantly lower fees suggest the procedure is being done not in a hospital but a medical clinic or doctors office. This is not safe. Propofol killed Michael Jackson because his doctor was not in a hospital with a qualified team. Don't cut corners with this.

Propofol & ALS

ALS is a condition that is widely considered as having no effective treatment.  Those afflicted with ALS expect their degeneration to continue and consequently lead to death. Reversal of symptoms is not considered possible unless an act of God.

ALS patients began reporting on ALS.net that Propofol (a common anesthesia) made them feel much better and had positive affects on their symptoms. These benefits are temporary and disappear as the drug leaves the body, which can be a few weeks. While Propofol is considered safe if administered properly, its effect on ALS has not been studied yet and its benefits are purely anecdotal. Sadly, the bar is low for ALS therapies, consequently many in the ALS community look to Propofol for hope.

In the United Sates, it is at the very least legally precarious if not illegal for a physician to treat an ALS patient off-label with Propofol. Those who do so risk their careers. As a result, ALS patients must consider medical tourism for their Propofol treatment.

IIB Medical understands the importance of safety and price for patients. If you are in need of Propofol treatments, we can quote you on a custom membership which will allow you ongoing Propofol treatments within your budget.
