Patricia Gale

Patricia Gale, a New Jersey native, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in January of 2021. Her active lifestyle suddenly came to a halt when a Metastasis had gone into her spine leaving her paralyzed. The life she once knew and adored had drastically changed she knew she needed to seek out help. Patricia was looking for a place that had her best interest at heart and her gut feeling led her to choose treatment at ITC.

“The staff at ITC are all very loving and kind which adds another layer of healing for me. Always feeling safe, respected, and well cared for by the staff at ITC makes me feel confident in my choice.”

When arriving at ITC Patricia was completely paralyzed. After only one treatment at ITC she could already wiggle her toes. After that first treatment, Patricia regained hope that she would walk again. Immunity Therapy Center created a custom treatment plan for Patricia consisting of nutrition, heat therapy, and much more that led her to achieve her dream of leaving ITC walking!

Background & Training

Dr. Bautista’s interest in medicine began at an early age; he always dreamed of being a doctor. While growing up in Tijuana, he often helped at his father’s pharmacy. Right away, he appreciated the interaction between his father and patients, and was drawn to the medical field. From childhood, he hated seeing a sick person without being able to help him or her.

This interest grew, and he enrolled in Baja California State University to study medicine. He is a Board Certified Medical Doctor and holds a Masters in Nutrition from the same university.

Dr. Bautista began his medical career in 1994, working in a hospital that offered alternative medicine and therapies. A turning point in his life occurred when his father was diagnosed with cancer.

As Dr. Bautista watched his father suffer the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, he was driven to further study alternative cancer treatments, both for his father and for other cancer patients. This dedication has not wavered. With more than 20 years of experience working in the medical field, he continues his work in alternative medicine partly as a tribute to his father.

A married father of three, Dr. Bautista enjoys playing and watching soccer/football in his free time.
