In 1963, the late Dr.
Ernesto Contreras, Sr. opened Oasis of Hope Hospital and began a healing
tradition known as the Total
Cancer Treatment Care Approach. Dr. Ernesto Contreras, Sr. has been
recognized in multiple publications as a pioneer in body, mind and spirit
medicine. At the foundation of his philosophy were two principles inspired by
Hippocrates, the father of medicine, and Jesus Christ: (1) First, do no harm;
and (2) Love your patient as you love yourself.

range of cancer treatment protocols, under the collective name Contreras

The mission of
Foundation of America
(CRFA) is to advance least-toxic, minimally-invasive cancer
prevention and survival practices that will eliminate cancer as a
life-threatening condition. We accomplish this through research, advocacy,
education, and support.
After years of carefully analyzing why cancer patients get
well, this is our conclusion: Survivors change. They create a state of body,
mind and spirit where they are well and they live from that state.
Survivors heal the whole person. Six areas of life medical, nutritional,
exercise, attitude, support and spiritual are key components to survivorship and
wellness. These areas comprise the Cancer Recovery Wellness Pyramid and the core
of what we believe at CRFA. In interviews and surveys with over 16,000
“terminal” survivors, a pattern of strategies and practices has emerged.
Key answers and information have been incorporated into our recovery plan and
confirm our beliefs:
Three important points:
The majority of survivors do not believe they recovered their health by
chance. They participated intimately in the management of their treatment.
Survivors do not credit their medical team alone, or even primarily, for
their good health. They feel they personally earned health and well being.
Survivors stopped simply treating their illness. They started creating

Our clinic’s approach to healthcare is based on an overall model called
Integrative Medicine. We say that our model is Integrative because we
utilize the best therapies from multiple medical traditions, along with looking
at the body as an integrated whole.
This is a holistic
and comprehensive orientation that differs in important ways from most
conventional medical treatment. Its purpose is not only to relieve symptoms, but
also to optimize health, enhance vitality and prevent future illness by
addressing the underlying causes of health problems.

The Cancer and Immunological
Diseases Clinic treats both the disease and the immune dysfunction which allows
the disease to continue. Cancer patients are usually severely immunosuppressed,
whether from the disease itself or some of the conventional treatments, such as
chemotherapy and radiation. Correcting this dysfunction is important to therapy,
especially for patients who are in remission - a fully functioning immune system
is required to keep them in remission...

Cancer Care Ministry
Cancer care ministry is a hope ministry.
While it involves prayer, counsel, visits and assistance, it is centered on
bringing God's hope to patients and their caregivers, family and friends. This
requires an understanding of the impact of cancer, how people react to it and
how God has called His people to respond. Above all, it requires us to have
within ourselves an unfeigned hope that we can take to those in need.
This ministry training program was created because of the
significant need in our nation, as well as in the body of Christ, to care for
those dealing with cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, over 12
million people in the United States are living with or have been personally
diagnosed with cancer. Every year, 1.5 million more people receive a cancer
That means that in a church of 200 people, approximately
eight people are living with cancer and two more will be diagnosed with it every
year. Each of these individuals has family members and caregivers that are
affected as well. This Bible-based ministry training program has been developed
to equip God's people with the tools needed to bring hope to the millions who
are living with cancer.
Our Journey of Hope® is a compassionate provider of cancer
care ministry resources and leadership training. Our mission is to care for
those affected by cancer through building and supporting a network of
church-based cancer care ministries.
With the Our Journey of Hope® lay ministry program, it's
easy to educate a congregation about keeping their bodies balanced with
nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices, so cancer cells never have the
opportunity to grow in the first place. They learn to spot early warning signs
and the importance of early detection. These simple steps are crucial in our
society's ongoing fight against cancer.
Cancer is different from many diseases; it attacks the
body, the mind, and the spirit. Cancer care ministry involves supporting
patients and caregivers in every area they are impacted. We strive to equip the
body of Christ with the knowledge, tools and perspective that the Scriptures
provide for effective ministry. Prayer is the beginning, the foundation of care.
We are dedicated to helping churches build upon that foundation to overcome the
unique and complex challenges that come with cancer.
Why is cancer
different? Cancer attacks the body. It is an assault of rogue cells trying
to take over the body and break down everything in their path. But its attack is
no less intensive on the mind and spirit. Yet, there remains something that
cancer cannot conquer: hope.
Cancer care ministry requires unique insights, both into
the disease and into God's
Word. The purpose of Our Journey of Hope® is to equip you with these
insights, and to help you cultivate and carry the hope for which so many are
What is the impact?
Imagine you are feeling afraid, rejected, alone, powerless, ashamed and
hopeless. Envision, then, if someone comes to you and says words that no one
else has said, does things that no one else has done and leaves you with
courage, strength, dignity and hope for the future - and God's plan. How would
that affect you? What if it changed one day? What about 10 days? 100 days? What
if it helped you through to see another whole season of life with hope?
The potential impact is indescribable.

Institute of Spiritual Healing and Aromatherapy
Dedicating to Restoring Healing in Christianity
- Jesus sent his disciples out into the world to heal
and anoint all those who were sick in body, mind and spirit. We have forgotten
that as followers of Jesus, we too are commissioned to heal one another. And, we
have forgotten how to heal.
The ISHA Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)
non-profit corporation established in December, 2006. .. Our mission is to
support the work of the Institute of Spiritual Healing and Aromatherapy in the
restoration of healing in Christianity.
Our goal is to do this through enabling individuals who
are financially in need to become healing practitioners both here in the United
States and in third world countries. This mission of creating healing ministries
flows from the Acts of the Apostles and the Gospels found in the Christian
Bible. The early church practiced healing that involved prayer, the laying-on of
hands and anointing with healing oils. This Christian calling has been lost
through the ages but is returning in our present day.
Wildwood Lifestyle Center and Hospital,
an institution located in northern Georgia, is dedicated to improving the health
of our guests and patients by providing the environment and tools necessary for
them to experience healing physically, mentally, and spiritually. We are more
than just a place to get well. We are a ministry of healing.
From the very beginning, our philosophy at Wildwood has
been to reach people where they are individually and to minister to them on all
levels, physically, mentally, and spiritually. For this reason we present
a “heavenly lifestyle”, teaching practical principles of living along with
natural remedies, inspiring confidence in a Creator who has designed a plan for
each life, and desiring the learners to embrace divine instruction.
For over 70 years, Wildwood Lifestyle Center has been using
natural remedies in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle as an effective means
of treating many of today’s degenerative diseases.
Our licensed physicians have a thorough knowledge of disease and conventional
treatment, as well as the knowledge to substitute those treatments with natural
remedies such as Hydrotherapy Massage, Exercise, Diet and Botanical Medicine.

Hallelujah Acres Lifestyle Centers - Hearing about the life-saving foods God prescribed for our
optimum health is one thing, but it's quite another to live it day by day. The Lifestyle
Centers are the fun, comprehensive answer to the often-asked question, "How
do you do it—really?”
Each of the Lifestyle Centers is a spacious, comfortable
home, and each excels in teaching the preparation and presentation of
mouth-watering living foods. Weekend,
week-long and two-week packages are essentially the same at each center, but
each reflects the personality of its owners and region. By sharing God's desire to see His people walk in divine
health, we are working toward our ultimate goal—to expand the Kingdom of God.
Here's What You'll Learn:
Spirited Life is a program of the Duke
Clergy Health Initiative, which is part of Leadership
Education at Duke Divinity. The Clergy Health Initiative was formed in 2007
when the North Carolina and Western
North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church partnered with Duke
Divinity School and The Duke
Endowment to seek solutions to their growing concerns about declining
pastoral health and increasing health costs.
Pastors often tell us that they feel called to their work.
This calling is central to their identity, and it has a profound influence on
every aspect of their lives, yielding both joys and intense pressure. Because of
this, we have intentionally cast our program within a framework of Wesleyan
theology and spirituality. We believe that unless Spirited Life – or any other
effort aimed at developing health and wellness among pastors – is grounded in
theology, it will feel incomplete. We hope that the Spirited Life wellness program kindles in
you a sense of spiritual renewal.

Our Mission is to teach, guide and inspire individuals
towards greater personal freedom, health, happiness and peace by using the
principles of Kushi Macrobiotics.
Kushi Institute, a division of Kushi Foundation Inc., is
the leading macrobiotic educational center in the world. Here students from
around the globe attend residential-style programs to study the macrobiotic
approach to health and healing.
Research has linked modern diet and lifestyle
habits to virtually all the debilitating chronic degenerative diseases, as well
as lesser health issues generally attributed to aging. Without knowing
which dietary and lifestyle changes can bring the health transformation people
are looking for, is it any wonder there is a “health crisis” in the world today?
This is exactly what macrobiotics addresses, and why so
many people who have come to Kushi Institute with health problems attribute
their full recovery to implementing what they learned about the power of healing
foods and lifestyle changes in our programs.
The Way to Health Program will guide you through every step
in the healing process, from the selection of healthful organic foods, to proper
cooking techniques, to balanced and healthful exercise and activity, and finally
to the discovery of the universal principles of natural living that lead to
genuine health and happiness.
Macrobiotics is a system that can be used to create
extraordinary health, through using both traditional wisdom and modern knowledge
to ascertain the underlying causes of an individual’s current health challenges,
and make adjustments to their food and lifestyle choices that support health
improvement. Not simply a “diet”, macrobiotic recognizes the profound effects
food, environment, activities, and attitude all have on our body-mind-emotions.

Institute programs, services, and information provided on our website are
educational in nature, not medical advice, and not intended to take the place of

Ornish Spectrum – Proven Prevention
more than 30 years, Dr. Dean Ornish has directed a series of scientific
research studies showing, for the first time, that the progression of even
severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive
lifestyle changes. These include a very low-fat diet including predominantly
fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and soy products in their
natural, unrefined forms; moderate exercise such as walking; various stress
management techniques including yoga-based stretching, breathing,
meditation, and imagery; and enhanced love and social support, which may
include support groups.
These studies also documented that other chronic
diseases may be reversible simply by making comprehensive lifestyle changes.
These findings are giving millions of people worldwide new hope and new
choices, options that are more caring and compassionate that are also more
cost effective and competent.
Participants learn about the clinically
proven and scientifically validated, Dean Ornish Program for Reversing
