Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

This story is very interesting, about alternative medicine, invented by Hoxsey's father.

Right now our country is in the midst of a very heated debate about the wisdom and cost and practical implementation of a government sponsered universal health care.

By viewing Hoxsey I learned a very important lesson and that is that there are those who really care about you but it is not in the present so called "money motivated health care system" we have in place today. There are very simple remedies out there in which we are not being told about because there is no money to be made in herbal medicine as there is in prescription drugs. The Harry Hoxseys of today are still out there but we are taught from an early age that we should put all our trust in modern medicine and that this is the only way. By viewing this documentary of a wonderful human being who cared and loved his fellow man you will also see that there are other ways we can help ourselves besides running off to a medical doctor every time we come down with an illness. I very highly recommend that if you have any health problems at all that you view this video. May this open your eyes up to the simple things in life.

a nice intro to hoxsey, his clinic(s), and his treatment; valuable to all, from cancer patients(as an intro tool when deciding on treatment) to health care professionals(& especially those still in training/school who haven't been polarized to an allopathic-only mindset). This video came before the (thick) bk, When Healing Becomes a Crime (which is a virtual treasure trove of cancer/treatment info, not just historical or hoxsey specific; highly recommend that you read the bk), and the video is a synopsis of the heart of the bk, minus later history/studies/otherTreatments. I learned of the video via the bk, which is actually one of my textbooks for the class "Cancer: Prevention and Politics," within my natural health degree program.

I was appalled at the treatment given to this man whose only desire was to help people recover from cancer when the doctors could no longer help them. He wasn't in it to beome super rich and swore to his dying father, who had invented this cure, that he would keep the price down so that no one would be turned away, thus making the cure available to all. The medical profession and pharmaceutical companies couldn't handle this altruism and when the latter couldn't buy the product away from Hoxsey so that they could make their $billions on it, they instead tried to sue the man and prosecute him for fraud. Too bad for them that Hoxsey kept winning his cases. Why? Because all the healed patients kept showing up to defend him. So it was undeniable that his cure worked. Please watch this movie if you or someone you love has cancer. At least it will open your mind to what is being done to people in the name of medicine which merely takes their money and doesn't really heal them, while preventing them from going to where a real cure is available.

It is a well documented fact that Harry Hoxsey cured thousands of terminal cancer patients that the modern medicine of the time had given up on. He did so using non-toxic herbal formulas and gave his treatments without charge and without prejudice to all who needed his care but did not have the means to pay. In so doing, he committed two unforgivable crimes against the medical establishment: one, he cured cancer patients that 'they' had pronounced "incurable", and two, he refused to sell his herbal formulas to the medical establishment when they refused to agree to treat, without charge, anyone who was unable to pay. Thus began the saga of Harry Hoxsey vs. the AMA/FDA and the protracted war that only wound up depriving the world of one of the most viable cures for cancer that has come along so far.
Although this video is an outstanding, factual and unbiased exposé of one man's unfortunate experience with "Big Medicine", it is also, at the same time disturbing, frustrating and maddening. If you are of the opinion that health care in America, as controled by the FDA and the AMA, is the greatest thing since sliced bread...you probably should avoid this video. It isn't one of your mother's little bed time stories.
On the other hand, if your experience with health care in America has ever led you to ask yourself the question "why haven't we been able to cure cancer yet"?...this video will go a long way toward answering that question.
Right now our country is in the midst of a very heated debate about the wisdom and cost and practical implementation of a government sponsered universal health care. Watch this video and you may begin to understand just who really controls health care in America and just where this current debate is likely to wind up.
