the hoxsey method

The Hoxsey Treatment is an alternative cancer treatment stemming from an herbal tonic with the power to effectively treat cancer.  Located in Tijuana, the history of the clinic reads more like a 20th Century David vs. Goliath.  Harry Hoxsey was given the recipe for a life-saving tonic by his father on his death bed.  He pursued medical school so that he could legally treat patients, but is thwarted at every turn by the behemoth American Medical Association (AMA) with their endless funding, lobbyists, and enormous power to crush anything that might interfere with their ability to increase the bottom line.  

Harry's history with the AMA is long and truly tells a story of perseverance in the face of overwhelming adversity and following your purpose, even when helping others causes great distress to you and your family.  Click here for more details of Mr. Hoxsey's story and the history of the clinic.  


the tonic

The foundation of the Hoxsey treatment is the tonic, which was developed by Harry Hoxsey's father in the early 1900's.  Comprised of a mix of different herbs, it is taken daily and helps not only cancer but a wide variety of illnesses and conditions. Patients with multiple sclerosis, emphysema, and other problems have all benefitted from these remedies. 


the food

The second component of this treatment is the diet.  Four things diminish the tonic's potency and are therefore not allowed:  pork, vinegar, tomatoes and alcohol.  

In addition to removing these items, this protocol requires a whole food diet that focuses on fresh fruits and vegetables, eating meats in moderation, minimizing salt, and removing processed foods. 

This approach attempts to restore a holistic physiological balance. Instead of performing surgery or irradiating the body, this approach works to improve the patient's sense of well-being through diet plans, vitamins, and homeopathic remedies.  A person who feels healthy will be better able to fight off any illness.

the mindset

The third component of the protocol is mindset.  This one is often more difficult to grasp as it isn't very tangible. There is not necessarily an exact way to approach it.  It's also difficult because for those people fighting a disease, such as cancer, being positive and having the energy to try new things requires even more effort on top of trying to just survive.  

However, it is a well-known fact that positive mindset, gratitude and joy are not only helpful- but critical- to success.  Meditation and activities like yoga can truly make the difference between those that succeed and those that do not.
