THE HOXSEY THERAPY is a 1½ hour documentary, which explores the struggle between Orthodox and Alternative Medicine. In remarkable historical footage here is the stranger-than-fiction story of Harry Hoxsey. He was a former coal miner who, in 1924, began to operate a number of successful cancer Clinics using an herbal remedy handed down by his grandfather.

A gigantic battle between Hoxsey and the newly-formed AMA raged from 1924 to 1960, with much of it played out in the courts and media. There was little doubt that Hoxsey was curing cancer, because there were too many recovered patients willing to testify on his behalf. In the end, however, the FDA was brought into the act and closed Hoxsey down. Eventually, Mildred Nelson, one of his former nurses, took the treatment to Tijuana, Mexico.

The Hoxsey Therapy film is narrated by Max Gail, Actor and features James Duke, Ph.D., Botanist, Bernie Siegel, M.D. and Peter Chowka, Science Writer.

This documentary was produced by Realidad Productions and directed by Ken Ausubel and Catherine Salveson. The film is available from American Media, P.O. Box 4646, Westlake Village, CA 91359, phone 800-595-6596.
