Hoxsey Therapy  

What is the Hoxsey Therapy?

The Hoxsey therapy is a plant-based treatment for cancer that was developed by Harry Hoxsey in the first part of the 20th century. A former coal miner, Hoxsey opened several clinics in the U.S. to treat cancer patients with an herbal remedy reportedly handed down by his great-grandfather. In the mid-1950s, the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas was the world's largest private cancer center, with branches in 17 states.

Although Hoxsey had extraordinary success with thousands of cancer patients, the established medical community remained dubious of his therapy. From the 1930s to the 1960s, the battle between Hoxsey and the American Medical Association (AMA) played out in the courts and in the media. Even though several courts upheld the “therapeutic value” of Hoxsey’s internal tonic, and the FDA conceded that Hoxsey’s treatment could cure some forms of cancer, Hoxsey’s clinics eventually were shut down.

In 1963, Mildred Nelson, Hoxsey’s long-time chief nurse, relocated the main clinic to Tijuana, Mexico. Today, the Bio-Medical Center, the new name of the Hoxsey clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, treats all types of cancer and claims an 80% success rate.

The Hoxsey formula contains the following ingredients: potassium iodine, red clover, burdock root, cascara amarga, prickly ash, poke root, stillingia, buckthorn, and licorice. These herbs are claimed to help support the immune system. In addition, the formula is reported to help cleanse the lymphatic system, help remove toxins from the blood, and to help stimulate the thyroid, liver, colon, and kidneys.

Hoxsey himself believed that his therapy normalized and balanced the chemistry within the body. Like many other holistic healers, Hoxsey considered cancer to be a systemic, not a localized, disease. As Hoxsey wrote: “Cancer occurs only in the presence of a profound physiological change in the constituents of body fluids and a consequent chemical imbalance in the organism.” Hoxsey’s herbal formula strives to restore the body’s normal chemical balance by creating an environment which is inhospitable to cancer cells.
