Cancer Salves:
Cancer Salves:
A Botanical Approach to Treatment

Ingrid Naiman

Many experts throughout history have regarded cancer salves and pastes as the most thorough, safe, and efficacious way to treat cancer, especially skin and breast cancers but also cancers of other organs. In this book, Ingrid Naiman meticulously traces the use of such products in ancient India and by Hildegard of Bingen, Native Americans, and modern physicians. She provides detailed instructions for making and using the salves, a fair comparison of the pros and cons, and eight pages of full color pictures showing responses to the products. Visit her Cancer Salves site for more information, answers to frequently asked questions, and a checklist for people facing cancer.


Hoxsey: When Healing Becomes A Crime
Hoxsey: When Healing Becomes A Crime
83 Minutes

DVD extras include: Bonus Film: " A Hope and a Prayer" and an interview with the director. In 1924, Harry Hoxsey claimed a cure for cancer, herbal formulas inherited from his great-grandfather. Thousands of patients swore the treatment cured them; but the medical authorities branded Hoxsey the worst quack of the century. So began a medical war continuing to this day. By the 1950's Hoxsey's Texas clinic was the world's largest, with branches in 17 states. Two Federal courts upheld his treatment's "therapeutic value." Even his archenemy, the American Medical Association, admitted it does cure some cases. Yet organized medicine banned the therapy, exiling it to Mexico where it claims an 80% success rate today. Why won't medical authorities investigate the treatment? Hoxsey charged a "conspiracy" to suppress alternative therapies. Was Hoxsey a hoax? Or was he "The Quack Who Cured Cancer"? Hoxsey's alarming scenario may make you angry, but most of all HOXSEY offers hope.

When Healing Becomes a Crime:
The Amazing Story of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinics and the Return of Alternative Therapies

Kenny Ausubel

Harry Hoxsey claimed to cure cancer using herbal remedies, and thousands of patients swore that he healed them. His Texas clinic became the world's largest privately owned cancer center with branches in seventeen states, and the value of its therapeutic treatments was upheld by two federal courts. Even his arch-nemesis, the AMA, admitted his treatment was effective against some forms of cancer. But the medical establishment refused an investigation, branding Hoxsey the worst cancer quack of the century and forcing his clinic to Tijuana, Mexico, where it continues to claim very high success rates. Modern laboratory tests have confirmed the anticancer properties of Hoxsey's herbs, and a federal govenment-sponsored report is now calling for a major reconsideration of the Hoxsey therapy.



On the deathbed of his father, Harry Hoxsey inherited the recipes for what is widely believed to be the world's most successful cancer treatment. He also took on the responsibility to keep alive and make available a treatment that remains as controversial today as it was during the agonizing McCarthy era when Hoxsey was hounded by the AMA and its allies in bureaucracy. Hoxsey kept his promise to his father and suffered accordingly. He was arrested more times than anyone in history, more than 100 times, but was repeatedly vindicated at the end of every ordeal. . . as well as posthumously.

The passion surrounding Hoxsey and his work is as great today as it was fifty years ago. No matter how irritating it is to those who regard it as archaic and hence obsolete, this treatment will not disappear. No one, regardless of their determination, has ever managed to prove that the treatment doesn't work. Quite the contrary, thousands of people claim to owe their lives to Hoxsey, and even today, I continually receive letters and e-mails from people who are wondering whether Hoxsey is still alive and how they might pursue the treatment that saved their parents or grandparents, a cure provided by a rough hewn self-proclaimed healer who owned a chain of hospitals that spanned seventeen states.
