Who Was Harry Hoxsey?

Harry Hoxsey was a man that helped many patients cure cancer with herbal tonics. His family migrated to Rhode Island and later to West Virginia, Ken­tucky. The family finally moved to Illinois, where Harry Mathias Hoxsey was born on October 23, 1901.

His father was John C. Hoxsey. John was a veterinarian who had inherited his grandfather's cancer formulas. He became known in the region for treating animals with cancer. John helped several sick horses at the Ringling Brothers circus.

Harry Hoxsey's family picture

Harry Hoxsey's father set up shop in a modest home office in small-town Girard. In his stable, he kept a stock of the three medicines in locked cabinets.

Each summer, the veterinarian brewed a year's supply of the cancer remedies. Harry had eleven other siblings. He was the only one to show an interest in the herbal tonic.

Harry Hoxsey's defining moment happened when he wit­nessed the healing of a young boy.

The Defining Moment When Harry Hoxsey Wanted To Become A Doctor

Cancer sufferer John Frommie had two tumors. One tumor on his nose was the size of a walnut. Harry cut and tied bandages around the boy's nose and behind his ears.

After six months, Frommie recovered. Right there and then, Harry knew he wanted to cure people like his dad. He then decided to go to medical school.

Harry decided early on that he wanted to heal cancer patıents

Harry spent all his spare time helping out in his father's office. As the cancer practice grew, John gave over his veterinary business to an assistant. Harry's father then devoted himself to cure cancer patients full time. 

John never turned people away for lack of funds. He told Harry that saving lives wasn't a business but rather a duty and privilege.

Then one tragic thing happened.

Father John Hoxsey's Tragic Accident

John tripped over a loose board and broke his nose. After this incident, his health declined, and the family had to sell the farm. When Harry was 15, he quit school and went to work in the coal mines to support his family.

Because of his expertise in handling animals, he soon graduated to muleskinner. During summers, he drove a taxi and took miners to brothels and saloons. Harry also built silos and drove sales­men around the county in a horse and buggy.

Harry's father was a veterinarian that healed cancer in animals and taught Harry his secret formula

On the side, he sold insurance. Harry also played semi-professional baseball and boxed and wrestled for cash. By 1919 John Hoxsey was bedridden. According to Harry, the diagnosis was erysipelas, an infection of the skin that re­sembles cancer. 

Knowing that he was about to die, John Hoxsey revealed his cancer formula to his son.

How Harry Hoxsey Received His Father's Secret Herbal Cancer Formula

Harry's father told his son to go to the People's Bank to get his safe deposit box. His father also said that Harry had to stop at the drugstore to buy three Big Chief writing tablets.

John took a metal box, withdrawing a small white envelope. He told Harry that he got the cancer formulas from his father, and he received them from his. Then Harry's father said it was his turn to pass them on. 

Big Chief tablet

Harry copied the cancer formula from his father on Big Chief tablets

John knew that Harry was the right man for the job when he was the only child interested in healing patients. Harry's father removed the contents of an envelope. Then he handed Harry the first of the Big Chief tablets. Slowly he read aloud the formula for the internal tonic. 

Harry copied it down word for word. The father instructed him to go into the dining room and write the formula on each of the 250 blank pages. Around midnight, young Harry fell asleep at the table, half done. He skipped break­fast and wrote all morning to finish. 

Later he went to his father.

The Death Of Harry's Father

Harry recited the formula, and his father tore the original and copies into tiny pieces. John then dic­tated the recipe for the external red salve. Harry went to work in­ scribing the second Big Chief tablet. 

He finished the next night and brought it to his father. Again Harry recited the formula, and his father burned the papers. Harry's hand ached, but he still took down the last recipe for the yellow powder.

When Harry completed the task the next day, he returned to find his father dying. His father took his hand and told him he had the power to heal the sick and save lives.

Harry Hoxsey continued his father's legacy by treating cancer patients with the family herbal tonic

John gathered his last reserve of strength. He then warned Harry that many doctors wouldn't like what he was doing. They would organize against him and fight tooth and nail to stop him. 

With the transmission of the family legacy complete, John C. Hoxsey shut his eyes and sank into the bed. Several days later, he died. A local doctor came and signed the death certificate, citing the cause as erysipelas.

Harry Hoxsey then dedi­cated himself to curing cancer. To accomplish this mission, he decided to become a doctor.

Harry's Plan To Becoming A Doctor

Harry had no money and needed to support his widowed mother and sick sister. He had some odd jobs to earn money while he studied for a high school diploma. Hoxsey put his earnings each week in a cigar box marked COLLEGE

Hoxsey started his first clinic in 1924

After the death of his mother and sister, he moved to nearby Taylorville to save on expenses. Harry lived with another sister and worked in the mines. He put over half of each paycheck in his cigar box college fund.

Locals in the community knew that Hoxsey had a supply of the medicines locked in the cabinet. Coming home from the mines one evening, he found a visitor waiting in the kitchen. 

Hoxsey's First Cancer Patient

A retired insurance broker had a disfigured lower lip and chin. Earlier on, he found out that it was cancer. The man knew Harry's father well and de­manded treatment. 

Harry declined because he had no license to practice medicine. The man objected and told Harry he didn't need it to cure cancer. If he was drowning, would he stand by and do nothing if a sign said "no swimming?"

Hoxsey still resisted, refusing to break the law, but the Civil War vet­eran challenged Harry. If Harry had the power to save his life but didn't, he would be guilty of murder.

Hoxsey ad

Hoxsey used this ad in 1932 to attract new patients

Hoxsey relented, agree­ing to treat Larkin only if he swore to secrecy. Larkin agreed, but when he returned for his next session, he brought a friend, E. C. McVicker

He was a director of the Farmer's Bank who had a black sore on his temple diag­nosed as cancer. Hoxsey protested, but McVicker promised to give him a big check for college if Hoxsey cured him. 

When the two men re­turned for their next treatment, they brought yet another cancer sufferer. Hoxsey realized that, ready or not, he was in business. 

The Man That Changed His Career Forever

Harry's patients became his patrons, and he quit his job in the mines and began treating cancer. Over the next two years, he claimed numerous cures. 

Harry earned enough money for college and medical school. He planned to halt his illicit practice and start his medical training. Seeking guidance, he consulted Dr. Maxamillian Meinhardt.

Dr. Meinhardt was more interested in Hoxsey's cancer remedies than in his education. He told Harry that he didn't need to go to medical school if he already had a cure for cancer. Meinhardt invited Harry to treat some test cases at his Chicago facility.

Dr- Miller in a newspaper

Dr. Bruce Miller would form a long relationship with Harry Hoxsey

There Hoxsey met Dr. Bruce Miller, who would be a massive part of his career. The physician came down to Taylorville to check out some of Hoxsey's successes. He became impressed with what he saw. 

Dr. Miller ex­plained to Hoxsey that doctors were helpless against cancer. He warned Harry that organized medicine would oppose him. Furthermore, Dr. Miller told Harry that he could not get into medical school if he used his formula.

Hoxsey listened as Dr. Miller went on to propose that they go into business to­gether. They could use the physician's medical license to follow legal requirements. Hoxsey would serve as a medical technician. 

Harry's First Cancer Clinic

Hoxsey and Dr. Miller formed a legal partnership where he didn't reveal his secret formula. This structure became his path for the rest of his career. The physician would continue working with Hoxsey for decades to come. 

On March 1, 1924, they opened the first Hoxsey clinic in Taylorville. Within two months, the partners had too many patients and needed to find a larger local. 

At a local gathering, Harry met Lucius O. Everhard, a Chicago insurance broker. He introduced Harry to Dr. Harris, chief surgeon of the Alexian Brothers Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Harris was also the secretary of the Ameri­can Medical Association(AMA).  

Patient Thomas Mannix with cancer on his left shoulder

Thomas Mannix was a terminal cancer patient with severe epithelioma that Hoxsey cured

He wanted Harry to demonstrate his cancer remedy on Thomas Mannix, a 66-year-old former police desk sergeant. Mannix was a terminal cancer patient with severe epithelioma. 

He had a grotesque mass of diseased flesh about four inches across his shoulder. Mannix had surgeries and burned his skin when he had radiotherapy.

Dr. Miller objected to treating such an advanced case. But Hoxsey insisted on proceeding. Harry applied a generous portion of a yellow powder. He also left a supply of the internal tonic with instructions to Mannix.

Within two weeks, Mannix began to improve. Four weeks later, his cancer hardened and turned black. Then it started separating from the healthy tissue. His general health improved as well. 

It was during the treatment of Mannix that Harry met his mortal enemy.

How Harry Met His Mortal Enemy Dr. Morris Fishbein

Hoxsey told Dr. Harris that removing the dried, hardened tumor within a few days would be possible. Dr. Harris suggested that the procedure take place in the hospital amphitheater. 

The amphitheater had ten doctors and another 50 interns and students. Dr. Harris introduced Harry to several physicians, among them Dr. Morris Fishbein

He was editor of the influential Journal of the American Medical Association(JAMA). Dr. Miller and Hoxsey suc­cessfully removed the tumor. An excited crowd gathered around them and asked questions for hours.

Dr. Harris and Dr. Fishbein wanted to buy Hoxsey's formula. Harry would get 10% of profits after ten years if the treatment panned out. Taken aback, Hoxsey suggested that he would have to show the document to his lawyer. 

Harry's Decision That Upset The AMA

Harry remembered that he promised his dad that everyone would be able to have the remedy. If he gave it away to somebody else, poor people might not get it.  

Hoxsey stood his ground and rejected the offer. His action prompted Dr. Harris to deny him access to Mannix until he signed the contract. 

Insife AMA center

The AMA punished anyone who dared defy the organization

Dr. Harris put the contract back in the drawer and told Hoxsey he was a big fool. He threatened Harry that he and Fishbein would chase him if Harry didn't sign the agreement.

Mannix died in 1934 of heart disease and high blood pressure 12 years after his treatments. The AMA acknowledged Mannix's recovery. But the organization maintained that his prior surgery and radiation healed him.

Hoxsey had made a powerful enemy.

The Dark History Of The AMA

By upsetting Dr. Morris Fishbein, he alienated the most influential figure in medicine. Dr. Harris and Dr. Fishbein flagged Hoxsey as a quack and denied offering him a contract for his formulas. 

Dr. Fishbein held a unique position. As journal editor, he controlled the primary income-producing organ of the AMA. The journal also set the accepted standards of medical practice. For the next 25 years, Hoxsey would battle Dr. Fishbein and the AMA. 

Founded in 1847 in Philadelphia, the AMA had been a trade organization until the turn of the century. Powerful, rich people took over the medical field. Some names were John D. Rockefeller, J. P. Morgan, John Jacob Astor, and Andrew Carnegie. 

JAMA article bashing Hoxsey

Dr. Fishbein bashes Hoxsey in the journal

Medicine was a gold mine and AMA aligned with these interests. Dr. Simmons was the man that changed the AMA for the worse. The sole source of AMA's income was the journal, of which Dr. Simmons was in complete control. He signed all checks and approved all expenses.

Dr. Simmons pushed all doctors to join the AMA, and by 1903 it had gained 30 000 members. Within 20 years, the vast majority of doctors were members. It became profes­sional suicide not to belong to the AMA.

Dr. Simmons's chosen successor was his assistant Dr. Morris Fishbein.

Morris Fishbein's Witch Hunt On Alternative Practitioners

Dr. Morris Fishbein would emerge as the undisputed voice of American medicine. Following Dr. Simmons's lead, he wanted medical power. Dr. Fishbein also punished anyone who dared defy the AMA line. He called these outliers quacks.  

Hoxsey was on AMA's watch list. He and Fishbein would become bitter rivals. An agent of the AMA Bureau of Investigation showed up in Taylorville. He queried locals about Hoxsey, his family, and supposed cures. 

Fishbein article

Dr. Fishbein  exposed "medical fraud"

Several months went by before lightning struck. On January 2, 1926, the journal published its first hit piece on Harry Hoxsey. They called his remedy "The Hoxide Cancer Cure." 

The AMA editorial branded Hoxsey's cancer cure a "secret remedy" and called him a quack. No reputable doctor or researcher could have any association with Harry.

Then the journal attacked Harry's father.

When Fishbein Went Too Far

Dr. Fishbein's editorial ridiculed Hoxsey's father. They wrote that he was a cancer quack who was a veterinarian that used faith healing. Further, they revealed that Hoxsey senior got caught for black­ mailing a dentist. The journal also said that Harry's father died of cancer.

Hoxsey wrote an angry reply to Dr. Fishbein. He told him that someone had charged his father with blackmail, but he got cleared of all charges. John Hoxsey didn't die of cancer, but erysipelas.  

Hoxsey further denied that his yellow powder contained toxic arsenic. He also chal­lenged Dr. Fishbein to verify even one case where anyone bled to death.

Cigarette ad in JAMA

The AMA journal's biggest advertiser was a tobacco company

An investigator from the State Medical Board examined Hoxsey's clients. He later charged Hoxsey with practicing medicine without a license.

The medical mafia would later arrest Hoxsey many times for the rest of his career. Harry worked as a medi­cal technician and was within the law. But that didn't stop the AMA from harassing him. 

However, the local sheriff didn't arrest him because Hoxsey treated him for cancer. When the case finally went to trial, Hoxsey was not guilty of any criminal offense. Seven more warrants never even reached trial.

But Hoxsey soon found himself facing a half-million-dollar lawsuit. 

The 500 000 Dollar Lawsuit

Eight of Harry's brothers and sisters were behind a prosecution. The suit cited that formulas that John C. Hoxsey used were worth $500 000. Harry learned that Chicago lawyers approached his relatives. They offered to buy out the relatives' share of the estate when they won the suit. 

Harry Hoxsey FDA Warning

Harry Hoxsey got into trouble with the FDA for curing cancer patients

Harry interrogated one brother on his motivation behind the lawsuit. The brother revealed that he assumed that Harry had stolen the formulas. He also said that Harry would make a million dollars with it because the lawyers told him so. The brother, therefore, wanted his part of the supposed profit.

Hoxsey watched his clinic and assets fall apart. The clinic physician, Dr. Washburn, took his license off the wall and quit. Patients under treatment pleaded with Hoxsey to continue helping them. 

Aware that he was under surveillance and no longer shielded by a doctor's license, he faced a dilemma. What would he do next?

Harry Hoxsey's Big Dilemma

During the following 18 months, Harry moved his clinic to the towns of Carlinville and Jacksonville. He then kept treating patients. 

Harry got arrested numerous times for practicing medicine with­out a license. He pleaded guilty to three counts and paid $100 fines for the misdeeds. Hoxsey later defended himself in court. It was the cheapest and quickest way out.

Hoxsey cancer clinic in Dallas

The waiting room at the Dallas Hoxsey cancer clinic in 1955

Hoxsey heard that Dallas doctor R. L. Spann promoted alter­native cancer treatments. Harry then went to Dallas because it had the strongest medical association. 

Meanwhile, Hoxsey had a feud with the Dallas County Medical Society. Between 1937 and 1939, they arrested him more than one hundred times. 

The district attorney Al Templeton brought most of the cases against him. Not one of the charges resulted in a conviction. Harry always carried a big roll of money, about $10 000, in his pocket. The authorities would pick him up and put him in jail, and he'd bail himself out. 

But then one thing Harry did, changed his mind.

How Harry Won Lawyer Al Templeton's Heart

Al Templeton's younger brother Mike got cancer in 1939. The surgeons removed his rectum and performed a colostomy. The removal of his colon left him with a bag at his side to expel his feces. Mike's cancer returned and spread through his body, and he waited to die. 

Harry agreed to treat Mike Templeton. Within a month, Mike was off the narcotics and gained some weight. He rose from the bed on Christmas morning, dressed, and went to his brother's house.

Standing at the door, he asked if he could borrow the shotgun. Al refused, fearing Mike was going to kill himself. But Mike wanted to go rabbit hunting! He revealed to his stunned sibling that he had been going to Hoxsey.

After a couple of days of soul searching, Al Templeton paid a visit to the clinic. He then resigned from his post of seven years as assistant D.A. to sign on as Hoxsey's lawyer.

Another assistant D.A., Frank Ivey, quit shortly after and also went to work for Hoxsey. Brother Mike regained his health and lived on for ten years, dying of acute alcoholism.

Despite healing patients, Harry would face more persecution.

The Medical Establishment's Sabotage Of Hoxsey's Business

Hoxsey was known for letting black people in the front door with everyone else. Unable to get black patients to testify against Hoxsey, the medical society retreated. They then resorted to other tactics. 

In 1940 pathologist Dr. Marvin Bell would no longer perform biopsies for Harry. He got threatened with the revocation of his medical license.

Since a biopsy was the only verifiable proof of cancer, Hoxsey could no longer confirm his cures. He soon found himself excluded from obtaining medical records. 

Hoxsey hired and lost a couple of more doctors over the next two years. He tried to pay them high salaries in hopes of keeping them.

Hoxsey later got in court with Dr. Morris Fishbein in 1952. 

Fishbein's Embarrasing Confession In Court

Fishbein's lawyer interrogated several cancer patients that received Hoxsey's treatments. The lawyer admitted that the Hoxsey treatment cured cancer. But this was not the most jarring rev­elation during the hearing.

When Dr. Fishbein talked under oath, he made shocking admissions. He failed anatomy in medical school. Fishbein never com­pleted his internship before going to work at the journal. He never practiced a day of medicine nor treated a single patient in his entire career. 

Young Morris Fishbein

Dr. Fishbein failed anatomy in medical school

Dr. Fishbein was sweating profusely by the time he left the stand. After three weeks of testimony, the jury decided all issues in favor of Hoxsey. Judge W. L. Thornton said that the Hoxsey treatment cured cancer. 

Morris Fishbein's allegations were false. As a doctor, Fishbein was a fraud. He practiced medicine without a license. His legal credentials were as a medical journalist and politician.

It was Hoxsey's spectacular victory over Dr. Fishbein that would bring down both men. The AMA got rid of Fishbein and continued to chase Hoxsey.

Harry's Life Collapsed

Hoxsey resumed treating a few patients despite heavy surveillance. Harry's life then broke down at once. After suffering a heart attack in 1958, he never recovered fully. 

The AMA got the FDA to close and padlock all 17 of Hoxsey's clinics on the same day in 1960. After Harry went out of business, he also developed cancer of the prostate. He refused to see a surgeon, and he used his medicine, be­lieving that he was going to cure himself.

Harry Hoxsey suffered from a heart attack and prostate cancer which ended his life

He did it a long time, and it did not cure him. Finally, his wife took him to the surgeon, and they operated on him, but it was too late to make him well.

Hoxsey had a weak heart and was an aging man, and couldn't last long. Harry's doctor stated that he was free of cancer. Hoxsey later died when this doctor was away. 

1974 in Dallas, Harry Hoxsey's funeral took place. Some parts of his family and friends attended his memorial before Christmas. 

But Harry's legacy would continue.

The Hoxsey Legacy Lives On In Mexico

One of Harry's most trusted assistant and nurse was Mildred Nelson. Mildred learned all the secrets of Harry's cancer treatment. When Harry became ill with heart disease, he chose Mildred as his successor. Harry convinced Mildred that opening a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, would help get the AMA off of their backs.

In 1963, Mildred Nelson founded the BioMedical Center. It is close to the border in Tijuana, Mexico. Over the years, Mildred expanded the center's treatment offerings. She employed professional staff to treat thousands of patients at the center.

Before her death, Mildred appointed her sister Liz Jonas to continue Harry's legacy. Today, the Hoxsey treatments live on at the BioMedical Center.

Treatments available at Bio-Medical Center include:

  • Natural herbs
  • Vitamins and minerals
  • Positive attitude
  • Special diet
  • Lifestyle counseling,
  • Conventional medical treatments

Modern diagnostic methods include extensive laboratory analysis, X-rays, ultrasound, and CT scans. Once you get an accurate diagnosis, the doctors will create a unique program for your needs. The treatments then help your body heal itself. 

What Is In The Hoxsey Blend?

Harry Hoxsey described cancer as a systemic disease. The actual cause of cancer was a chemical and metabolic imbalance. Hoxsey believed that a systemic approach could fix the imbal­ance. 

Once the problem ends, the environ­ment will become unfavorable for cancer cells. They will then stop multiplying and die. 

There are two herbal formulas used in the Hoxsey treatment. One is external, and the other one is internal. Hoxsey called his approach "non-toxic chemotherapy."

His internal tonic served several functions. It stimulated the elimination of toxins poisoning the system. The remedy also corrected abnormal blood chemistry and normalized the cell metabolism. 

Sanguinary Canadensis

Hoxsey treated external cancers with a red paste made of bloodroot (Sanguinary Canadensis), picture by Eric Hunt

Hoxsey treated external cancers with a red paste made of bloodroot (Sanguinary Canadensis). It is a common wildflower mixed with zinc chloride and antimony sulfide. The wildflower has potent anti-tumor properties. 

In the 1960s, various physicians healed cancers using a paste identical to Hoxsey's. The AMA, however, condemned Hoxsey's paste as fraudulent. 

Patricia Spain Ward is a medical historian. According to her, the research identified anti-tumor activity in most of Hoxsey's plants. For example, in 1966, Hungarian scientists discovered the anti-cancer ability in burdock.

In 1984, Japanese researchers found that burdock contained a new type of desmutagen. It is a substance that is capable of reducing mutations. The Japanese researchers named it the B-factor for the "burdock factor." 

Some of the herbs in the Hoxsey formula are also part of similar anti-cancer blends, such as Essiac.

Anti-cancer Ingredients In The Hoxsey Formula

Eight of the nine herbs in the internal tonic also showed anti-tumor activity in ani­mal tests. Five had anti-oxidant properties, which helped against cancer.

Hoxsey gave two different versions of the tonic. He kept the formula a secret for 25 years. But he first released it only under court order during 1949.


Barberry and other herbs in the Hoxsey tonic have anti-cancer properties

Several years later, Hoxsey listed another recipe almost identical to the first one. In court, Hoxsey admitted changing the formula over time. 

So the question remains on what exactly is in the Hoxsey tonic? Mildred Nelson continued to guard the recipe and never confirmed or denied it. Mildred did hint that licorice may never have been in the formula. 

Hoxsey Herbs

Hoxsey's formula contained many different herbs shown to fight cancer by independent research.

Red Clover

Red clover and Trifolium pratense are some of the most vital ingredients in the tonic. Red clover blossoms act as a blood purifier and externally as a plaster.

It also contains many active compounds, including phytoestrogens. These plant hormones may be responsible for the low incidence of cancer among women in Japan.

Burdock root

Burdock root, Arctium lappa, has strong immune-boosting properties. It contains chemi­cals that have cancer-killing abilities. Burdock is an old folk cancer remedy in Chile, China, India, Canada, Russia, and the United States.

Poke root

Poke root, Phytolacca americana, is another vital ingredient in the Hoxsey tonic. Poke roots and leaves have long been used as anti­-cancer remedies. Indians used the powdered root for cancer. Early settlers applied berry juice to skin cancers.

Barberry and Prickly Ash Bark

Barberry and prickly ash protect against cancer. This effect might be because of the alkaloid berberine. Alka­loids are bitter, organic bases found in plants.

Native Americans used the plant to cleanse the blood, among many other uses.Prickly ash bark contains some of the same alkaloid compounds found in barberry. It is another leading agent in the formula.

Buckthorn bark and Cascara Sagrada

Buckthorn bark, Rhamnus frangula, has traditionally been used for internal cancers. They have long been a remedy for cleansing the blood, liver disorders, and constipation. Further, these herbs contain aloe-emodin, a laxative mixture shown beneficial against cancer in animal studies

Cascara sagrada bark and Rhamnus purshiana have traditionally been cleansers, laxatives, tonics, and liver medicine. An extract of cas­ara inhibited the tumor growth of breast cancer transplanted in mice after ten days.

Stillinga Root and Licorice root

Stillingia (Stillingia sylvatica) is also known as queen's root. It is a medicinal plant of the Southeast. It is suitable for internal cancers. An alcoholic extract of stillingia reduced tumor growth in mice with breast cancer.

Licorice root, which Hoxsey may have used, also has many cancer-killing abilities. It has estrogen-like properties and improves the body's immune function.

Licorice root has long been a tonic and blood purifier and eased inter­nal inflammations. It may also help you prevent liver cancer.

Potassium Iodide

Po­tassium iodide is the most overlooked ingredient in the tonic. It is a blend of potassium and iodine, also known by its chemical symbols as KI. Potassium iodide has a long history of usage in folk medi­cine, as well as in veterinary medicine.

The Eclectics used potassium io­dide extensively, but not for cancer. Conventional doctors also employed it earlier in the century for many diseases.

In the last few years, she stopped listing buckthorn and prickly ash bark on the label. She also maintained that the tonic formula changed depending on the type of cancer and stage. 

The Hoxsey formula's real purpose was not to kill cancer cells. Instead, its goal was to create an unfavorable terrain for cancer cells. Independent scientific research has validated the specific effects of the Hoxsey herbs. 


Harry Hoxsey was a man that helped many cancer patients cure their condition with herbal tonics.

He was born on October 23, 1901.
