9780892819256: When Healing Becomes a Crime: The Amazing Story of the Hoxsey Cancer Clinics and the Return of Alternative Therapies

A powerful and substantiated expose of the medical politics that prevents promising alternative cancer therapies from being implemented in the United States.

· Focuses on Harry Hoxsey, the subject of the author's award-winning documentary, who claimed to cure cancer using herbal remedies.

· Presents scientific evidence supporting Hoxsey's cancer-fighting claims.

· Published to coincide with the anticipated 2000 public release of the government-sponsored report finding "noteworthy cases of survival" among Hoxsey
patients.

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.

When Healing Becomes a Crime exposes the overall failure of the War on Cancer, while revealing how yesterday's "unorthodox" treatments are emerging as tomorrow's medicine. It probes other promising unconventional cancer treatments that have also been condemned without investigation, delving deeply into the corrosive medical politics and powerful economic forces behind this suppression. As alternative medicine finally regains its rightful place in mainstream practice, this compelling book will not only forever change the way you see medicine, but could also save your life.

From the Back Cover:

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH / CANCER

“Freedom comes in many varieties--religious, political, and, as this book stunningly reveals, medical. The bitter power struggle for dominance within medicine has always been one of its dirty little secrets. For anyone who believes modern therapy is only about facts, evidence, and data, this book will come as a shock. It will help readers become wiser patients, and could even save their lives. A magnificent contribution.”
--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words and Prayer is Good Medicine

“With this book, Kenny Ausubel establishes himself as one of the truly great writers on contemporary America. Lucid, hard-hitting, well researched, comprehensive, this book will no doubt raise more than a few eyebrows in the medical and cancer establishment--and hopefully raise the consciousness of all Americans regarding the possibilities that some natural treatments might contribute to the war against cancer.”
--Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of the American Botanical Council

“The story of Harry Hoxsey and his fight with the medical establishment over unorthodox cancer treatment is both a fascinating medical drama and an important historical episode in the development of alternative medicine in the twentieth century. Physicians, patients, medical students, and government officials could all benefit from reading this book.”
--Andrew Weil, author of Spontaneous Healing

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 government–sponsored report is now calling for a major reconsideration of the Hoxsey therapy.

When Healing Becomes a Crime exposes the overall failure of the War on Cancer, while revealing how yesterday’s “unorthodox” treatments are emerging as tomorrow’s medicine. It probes other promising unconventional cancer treatments that have also been condemned without investigation, delving deeply into the corrosive medical politics and powerful economic forces behind this suppression. As alternative medicine finally regains its rightful place in mainstream practice, this compelling book will not only forever change the way you see medicine, but could also save your life.
