Welcome from Dr. Ortuno

We at CHIPSA have created a most unique healing environment applying integrative medicine to address some of mankinds most serious degenerative diseases.

Dear visitor,

Since our inception in 1979, we at CHIPSA have established the first multidisciplinary integrative medical protocols in North America, involving the integration of Immunonutrition Therapy along with advance immunity enhancing protocols currently recommended by the National Institute of Health (NIH). Our Center integrates the diet therapy as the nutrition basis for our patient-centered care as we align specific treatment protocols. Our practice is an outstanding success at the Gerson Medical Center and the participating melanoma patients published in peer reviewed medical journals that included a study of five-year survival rates.

The medical practice at CHIPSA has been treating patients through integrative medical protocols for more than 27 years. We have over the last several years, combined some of the best-known therapies of this new century into a potential leading integrative medical practice. Several of our treatments have achieved long-term results on itheir own, but no one has ever combined individualized protocols together as CHIPSA has, with some very amazing results.

Many have copied our methodology and practice over the years, but few have the credential to declare the positive results and remission that CHIPSA has been able to maintain treating malignant cancers and degenerative disease.

For the last years of his life, we had the collaboration of Dr. Josef Issels who joined the CHIPSA staff as co-principal investigator, bringing more than 40 years of experience serving others using immunotherapy treatments as well as his own autologous cancer vaccines. The mixed bacterial vaccine of Dr. William B. Coley, M.D. is a current standard protocol. CHIPSA has also added Dr. Evangelos Danopoulos' well-documented urea/creatine treatment for cancer. The placental extract vaccines developed by Russian immunologist Constantin Govallo, M.D., are also now available as an immunoembryological therapy. These are the latest additions to CHIPSA's standard protocols for treatment of patients with degenerative diseases including cancer.

The dietary aspects of patient management used at CHIPSA were developed empirically over the course of 50 years starting back in pre-war Germany and continuing on to the present. Gradually, by trial and error, an integrated set of medical treatments has evolved. The initial research was done at the University of Munich. Its extraordinary laboratory support was funded both by the Bavarian and Prussian federal governments. It focused on the use of diet and medications to improve tissue edema occurring in a variety of pathologies. Edema is characterized by salt and water changes that Cope, in modern times, has defined as Tissue Damage Syndrome-decreased cell potassium, increased cell sodium, and increased cell water (cell swelling)-changes that are also observed after death. Nutritional treatment to provide cells with a high potassium, low sodium environment improved edema and has led to enhanced tissue resistance and immunities, and therefore better outcomes. Our program is individualized to meet the need of the patient, but it does have uniform components.

For most patients, the dietary portion of treatment consists of restricted intake of salt, fat, and (temporarily) protein. We supply very high quantities of many nutrients and phytochemicals while at the same time forcing fluids (13 hourly feedings of raw fruit and vegetable juices) daily along with low fat lacto-vegetarian meals that are served 3 per day. This is combined with our integrative medications to enhance corporal metabolism.

CHIPSA uses the integrative protocols for every patient ranging from births to seniors and from wound care or accidents to patients with degenerative diseases.
