You Can Help Others and Promote a Holistic Integrative Approach to the Treatment of Cancer
The Issels Foundation is dedicated to research, education, and promotion of the holistic integrative approach to the treatment of cancer an d chronic degenerative diseases.
In 1987 the Issels Foundation was established by llse Marie lssels. Marie’s late husband Josef M. Issels, M.D., was a world renowned leader in the development of a holistic, integrative therapeutic system for the treatment of patients with advanced cancers that had failed to respond to standard approaches.
As Dr. Issels’ co-worker for four decades, Mrs. Issels was daily confronted by the extreme suffering of terminal cancer patients. She also witnessed the improvement of many of these patients through the Issels Treatment, even though they could not be helped any more by standard managements. A remarkable number of these “incurable” cancer patients achieved long term, complete remissions and were able to lead normal, healthy, cancer-free lives of up to 53 years follow-up.
Through her concern and desire to help others as well as to share information about the holistic integrative approach to treating cancer, the Issels Foundation was created. Its mission is to aid research, education, promote publication and to fund cancer treatment for needy patients.
