Their standard cancer protocol is a week of detoxification and the strengthening of the immune system with diet and nutritional supplements, followed by two weeks of localized hyperthermia treatment and low-dose chemotherapy. 

In addition to conventional medicine (surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy) they offer nutritional supplements, detoxification, biological/nontoxic treatments that include phytotherapy, mistletoe, hormones, cytokines, biological response modifiers, immune therapy, hyperthermia, Galvanotherapy, and psychological therapies including group therapy, guided imagery and art therapy.  

We have received some positive and some negative reports on this clinic. We have heard they have done well with some prostate and breast cancers. However, the complaints we have received include:  Some people have not been told upfront that it many need to go back to the clinic two or three times to complete treatment. Their standard program runs about $6,000 per week, with whole body hyperthermia costs an additional $2500 per session, so the cost to go two or three times can be prohibitive. We have heard they will consider financial constraints. We have also heard that some insurance companies will cover treatments at this facility.  A couple of people said they were told that their tumors had reduced in size or that their cancer was gone, without adequate testing to verify this. Be sure you have appropriate tests to confirm how the treatment is working. Many find this clinic to be too conventional, so be sure to understand this in an "integrated" clinic. Patients are not always warned how taxing hyperthermia can be or that the low dose chemo can still have side effects, including hair loss.  Be sure to ask about this.  There have also been a couple of complaints about the food.

The most positive reports we are hearing are coming from those with prostate cancer who did their complete program, not just the hyperthermia and low dose chemo.

Per the clinic, you can contact a doctor weekdays (German time - they are 10 hours ahead of us) for a consultation. However, we have found the best way to contact them is by fax, sending your medical records for evaluation. If you email, they say it sometimes takes a few days to get back to you, so faxing seems to be the best option.

The information on this page is provided by The Cancer Cure Foundation based on information we have received from a variety of sources, including the clinic itself, feedback from people who have gone to the clinic, and in some cases from clinic tours. The listing of a doctor or clinic here does not signify an endorsement by the Cancer Cure Foundation, unless we have indicated it. We encourage you to check out each clinic by visiting the clinic if possible, talking to people who have gone to the clinic (ask the clinic for contact information of people who have gone to the clinic), and by checking with other organizations as to what they know about the clinic. There are also some forums you can join to get feedback from others. We would also be happy to tell you what we know about any of these clinics.

If you do go to any of these clinics for treatment, be sure to mention you heard about them through The Cancer Cure Foundation, and be sure to let us know about your experience, positive or negative. Any feedback you can offer may help others who are trying to decide which clinic to go to or which therapy to use.
