Movie Reviews

Greed & Hidden Truths of Cancer Cures | Florida United States | 01/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Effective/alternative cancer clinic intro

"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."
Watch and you'll understand why doctors don't want you to kn

"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."
