Research into alternative medicine has been neglected and
discouraged in the United States, in favor of traditional medicine based upon
chemical drugs. Fortunately that is not the case in other areas of the world.
HANSI was developed as a treatment for cancer by an Argentine botanist, Juan J.
Hirschmann. Prof. Hirschmann's earliest fascination was with cacti, often
requesting them for birthday presents during his adolescence and through his
adult years. Born in 1942 to Hungarian refugees, young Hirschmann worked his way
through undergraduate botany at the University of Buenos Aires, experimenting in
cacti. After college he perfected standard greenhouses for his precious cacti.
On weekends he sold some cactus plants to pay for his weekday projects in the
greenhouses, quickly learning that the more grotesque the cactus (due to
cancer), the higher the price received. Thus he embarked on inducing the
deformation of cancer in his cacti. A wonderful result of this work was his
success in reversing the process and eliminating cancer from the cacti.
That discovery gave him a new direction. He left industry and commerce behind
and concentrated on this new thing, whatever it was. He conceived what he calls
a "catalyst," which caused corn to grow fifteen feet tall with three
times the normal number of ears; three crops per year. And he could reverse this
unbelievable growth, making plants smaller.
Because of this intense relationship with plants, he acquired an interest in
homeopathy (the medical system which utilizes infinitesimal doses of a substance
to treat a disease condition), and introduced it into his experiments. He
reduced substances to "mother tinctures," which he diluted with
purified water beyond the point at which no trace remained of the original
substances - however, the essences of the original substances remained as
molecular memory in the water molecules. This energized water drove cancer from
his beloved cacti. The work, which had taken Hirschmann sixteen years to refine,
was now ready.
His first patient was his own cancerous dog. He treated his dog with his new
energized water, and her tumors gradually disappeared. That set off another
eight years of experimenting with animals. Horses were cured, and two lions with
tumors on their heads were cured. Various patients of veterinarians also
A man, who asked for the healing water to treat his dog, instead took it
himself, and recovered from lung cancer. A pharmacist gave it to his wife and
tumors on her breasts and liver went away. She stopped her injections, continued
her previous lifestyle, and cancer developed again so quickly and virulently
that she died, but not before giving HANSI it's name.
Hirschmann's first name, Juan, means "Hans" in German. His family
called him by the diminutive Hansi. The pharmacist's wife named the treatment
after it's discoverer and devised a Spanish description that formed his nickname
in acronym: Homeopatico Activador Natural del Sistema Inmunologico.
For another patient, a physician used HANSI to treat the tumor on his face and
it disappeared in two months. The patient stopped treatment, cancer reappeared
and again HANSI was brought in. This occurred six times altogether, and when the
man died years later, it was from pneumonia.
The first medical documentation of cases began with an Argentine surgeon who
entirely committed an eight-year practice to treating cancer patients with
HANSI. In 1982, his first HANSI patient had 20 melanoma tumors and had been
dismissed as terminal. After a few years on the HANSI treatment, she reportedly
tested cancer-free and enjoyed life many years thereafter.
In 1990, Hirschmann and a surgeon opened the first HANSI clinic in Buenos Aires.
Physicians made referrals of terminal patients. Word of mouth spread the news
far and wide. A week later the clinic reached it's capacity. Lines formed for
blocks, necessitating bringing in police for crowd control. The Minister of
Health moved to close the clinic. He withdrew his order when thousands of people
surrounded the Presidential Palace in a non-violent HANSI supporting protest.
Since 1990 over 100,000 patients have been treated in the Argentine clinics,
with outstanding results and without any harmful side effects. Unfortunately for
the world, those results were only observed, not documented in a formal study
capable of scientific recognition. Recently, HANSI doctors began to do
post-treatment studies. This work is very difficult because some patients were
so elated with early results that they dropped out of their designated study.
Also, a particular Latin anathema, post-mortem, is an example of a cultural
barrier to clinical observation. Proving the efficacy and safety of this
wonderful medicine became the responsibility of the organization that took HANSI
