The Fascinating Saga of the Most Courageous and Flamboyant Alternative Cancer Therapist: Harry Hoxsey
by Paul Fassa
The medical establishment used the FDA to eventually win the war. His USA operations were closed down in 1960, but his legacy continues as the Bio-Medical Center in Tijuana, Mexico. His clinic was the first alternative cancer clinic to flee into a less politically medical hostile environment. Others have since followed, thanks to the tyrannical monopoly of the Medical Mafia.
The Hoxsey Clinic's Approach
There are two herbal formulas used in the Hoxsey treatment. One is external, and it consists of a red paste made with bloodroot, the active anti tumor ingredient, mixed with zinc chloride and antimony sulfide. This paste is applied directly onto skin cancer tumors.
The internal tonic consists of Red Clover blossom, Licorice root, Buckthorn bark, Burdock root, Stillingia root, Poke root, Barberry root, Oregon Grape root, Cascara Sagrada bark, Prickly Ash bark, Wild Indigo root and Sea Kelp. The Sea Kelp may have been added more recently to the original formula. A supplement of potassium iodide was included along with the tonic.
In the clinic, patients eat together and mingle freely among themselves. The atmosphere is cordial and friendly, the type of positive attitude that encourages healing, sometimes in and of itself. Communication among staff and patients is open. Humor and positive attitudes are encouraged. When Hoxsey was in charge, he would personally greet and encourage patients to instill a positive attitude.
There was, and still is a one time fee, which enables patients to return as often as needed and receive the tonics. In 2005 at the now renamed Mexico Bio-Medical Center, it was around $3500 to $5000 with a one-third down payment. Compare that to chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, doctor bills, and hospital stays for the average cancer patient!
Hoxsey himself never turned anyone down for lack of funds. He had become successful as an oil man in Texas and he didn't need the money. Yet claims that Hoxsey was a con man out to exploit people anxious for a cure was a chronic AMA tactic.
Journalist James Burke observed Hoxsey take people who had traveled to his
clinic in Dallas and personally handle all their travel and living expenses
while charging nothing if they were broke. Burke was originally sent by
Esquire Magazine in 1939 to expose Hoxsey as a quack and a fraud.
History and Battles with the Medical Mafia
That was the beginning of their war, and the medical establishment began their campaign to destroy Hoxsey.
In 1936, Hoxsey established the largest independent clinic in the country in Dallas, Texas. There he was confronted with yet another enemy, the Assistant District Attorney, Al Templeton. Hoxsey was arrested 100 times in two years.
he bailed himself out with the large amount of cash he carried just for
those occasions. But charges were always dropped as no one would testify
against Hoxsey. Too many patients were happy with the treatment.
The judge declared there was no monetary damage, since Hoxsey had successfully used the AMA persecution to promote his treatments and products. Nevertheless, the ruling was that Hearst and Fishbein were guilty of libel and slander. Hoxsey had paraded over 50 cured cancer patients into the courtroom, along with testimony from other supporters.
revealed that Fishbein had flunked anatomy in college, and he had never
practiced medicine! Fishbein also admitted that the external salve Hoxsey
used was actually effective. This after years of propagandizing the salve as
worthless and dangerous. So despite the measly two dollar award, it was a
stunning victory for Hoxsey. And it got even better.
reason the AMA gave for declining further investigation was they didn't want
to raise false hopes by investigating the treatment's credibility.
Nelson RN, who was once skeptical of Hoxsey until her mother was cured of
cancer in his clinic, had subsequently become Hoxsey's head nurse and
assistant. Hoxsey urged her to to relocate to a facility being prepared in
Tijuana, Mexico. But he insisted that she change the name because the Hoxsey
name was too much of a target, and that she head the facility while he
remained in Dallas for his oil business.
In lieu of a Hollywood drama based on real life events, this excellent documentary produced in 1987 that focuses on Hoxsey saga, “When Healing Becomes a Crime”, is now available for viewing free on line. Enjoy it from this link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G45f8bNgj9w
