German cancer clinicsA common misconception among Cancer Tutor readers is that all German cancer clinic are the cream of the crop, the ultimate in natural or alternative cancer treatments. This is a case of perception – not reality. The first thing you need to understand is there are only a small number of German cancer clinics that use alternative medicine.
A majority of German cancer clinics use orthodox treatments. The same orthodox treatments with the same success rates as those used in the United States. In researching for the right cancer clinic, it is paramount to find a clinic that uses alternative medicine.
For an in-depth look at these clinics, read German Cancer Breakthrough by Andrew Scholberg. The book is based on first-person reporting; Scholberg visited the clinics and interviewed the doctors and patients. German Cancer Breakthrough is an excellent resource to learn about 10 of the major German alternative cancer clinics and is a key resource for details about each clinic.
As you consider a German clinic, research those that offer alternative treatments such as whole body hyperthermia (“fever therapy”), localized hyperthermia, oxygen therapy, mistletoe therapy, magnetic field therapy, art therapy, colonic hydrotherapy, etc.
OK, so you're thinking, "What does art therapy have to do with cancer?" A common treatment that sets apart the good German cancer clinics is art therapy, which is symbolic of the attitude of the German clinics. They want the patient to forget about cancer, be creative and have a positive mental attitude. Psychology is important in these clinics, which often are inpatient facilities. You and your caretaker stay on site and enjoy a “bed and breakfast” feel.
Above all else, as you research cancer treatments and clinics, know your options. Talk with your doctor and family. Discuss the results of your research. Make a decision that your heart is comfortable with. Where and how you treat cancer is your choice.
