Cancer Metastasis According to the Gospel of Tony Isaacs on Curezone

Doll made of liver cancer cells

Many proponents of alternative medicine claim that surgical removal of cancer is very dangerous because it will cause the cancer to spread. Therefore, they strongly advise against any kind of surgery in case of cancer.

On Tony Isaacs’s Curezone, a forum member is asking advice on how to treat advanced liver cancer. The patient in question – the forum member’s mother – has previously undergone surgery. But according to Tony Isaacs it is precisely surgery that causes cancer to metastasize:

German New Medicine (GNM) and Debunking Hamer on Cancer Metastasis: Slam Dunk

Ryke Geerd HamerRyke Geerd Hamer, inventor of the German New Medicine, claims that there is no such thing as cancer metastasis.

Hamer also claims that cancer does not spread through the bloodstream.

However, these claims can easily be checked out, and that is just what jli, our pathologist, has done in this post.

I’m sorry if I seem a tad triumphant, I don’t mean to, honestly. But I just could not let this go. Unbelievable as it sounds, apparently überquack Hulda Clark died of cancer, multiple myeloma to be precise. Now how in the world can this have come about?

Stephen Serenelli’s Scientology Cancer Diet Experience: Read It And Weep

stephen serenelliOn October 26, 2004, Stephen Serenelli died of bowel cancer.

Initially he was treated conventionally, but under the strong influence of his wife Eileen and Ian Shillington, a naturopathic doctor and Scientologist, he decided to follow alternative treatments only.

The alternative treatments made him feel weak and miserable and resulted in his tumour becoming inoperable. This almost certainly shortened his life considerably and seriously compromised his quality of life. The fact that the alternative treatments wore him out so much may have decreased his survival time even more.

Shortly before his death, Serenelli wrote a letter to his ND Ian Shillington. Serenelli also kept a diary during his illness.

Psychological Trauma, Stress, Cancer and German New Medicine: Time to Move on, Mr Hamer!

Very special Hamer medical deviceDe-licensed German physician Ryke Geerd Hamer claims he can cure cancer without surgery, radiation or chemotherapy.

He states that cancer is always caused by an (unexpected) emotionally traumatic event – which he calls a “biological conflict” and the only way to cure it is by solving this “conflict” through a special protocol of his own invention.

It isn’t exactly rocket science to establish that he is very wrong, both about the cause of cancer and the best way to treat it.

If  Hamer is right, then cancer and emotional trauma are always causally related. But science shows that this is not the case:

Corinne Thos, Victim of Hamer’s German New Medicine, Dies at 41

In 2003, at 41, dance teacher Corinne Thos was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She underwent  a few cycles of chemotherapy, but then decided to stop all standard treatments on the advice of a psychotherapist who frequented her dance school and with whom she had become friendly. He convinced her to put her fate in the hands of the ‘Nouvelle Medécine’ – the French version of the German New Medicine of Ryke Geerd Hamer – which claims it can cure cancer without any form of standard treatment. Sadly, this proved fatal.

German New Medicine (GNM) and what Hamer Doesn’t Tell You: Six Stupid Questions on Cancer Metastasis

Caroline MerkolinThere is a website called ‘Learning German New Medicine.’ This website was built by Caroline Markolin, a Canadian Hamer proponent and is said to have received the master’s official approval. The website is the GNM’s learning zone, so to speak.

In the navigation on the left there is a tab called ‘Standard Theories’. When you click on that, you’ll see a tab on ‘Metastasis.’  The greater part of this page is filled with long, rambling and incoherent arguments of which I can make neither head nor tail, although I fear that it is exactly this pompous incomprehensibility which will impress a lot of people.

Six Questions

At the bottom of the page, Hamer tells us to ask ourselves six “common-sense questions” on metastasis.
