Hufeland Klinik (clinic website), a small family practice, was founded by Wolfgang Woeppel, MD, and his wife Gabriele in 1985, and is still run as such today. Dr. Woeppel worked closely with Joseph Issels, MD, a German oncologist famous for his immunological approach to the treatment of cancer. In 1951, Dr. Issels was the first person to open a hospital in Germany for conventionally incurable cancer patients which specialized in comprehensive immunotherapy. A world-renowned pioneer of integrative medicine, Dr. Issels was also the first physician to integrate conventional and alternative/complementary treatments into a comprehensive treatment program. He became internationally known for his successful treatment outcomes.
Since Dr. Woeppel’s death in July 2006, Gabriele Woeppel and her daughters have run Hufeland Klinik. Hufeland employs four doctors, eight nurses, three massage therapists, a psychologist, and art therapist, as well as other health care practitioners, who all work together as a team to provide their patients with the best individualized care. They consider each patient to be unique, and seek to combine treatment methods in both conventional and biological medicine to formulate protocols that are best suited to the individual patient. (Note: German biological medicine is a field which integrates modern medical science with traditional European natural medicine and homeopathy. It also integrates philosophies from Traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine into its disciplines).
Nina Reis, MD, is Hufeland Klinik’s senior physician. She was born in 1957 in Kytmanowo (Russia), and earned her medical degree (MD) in 1980 from the University of Altaisk in Russia, where she specialized in pediatrics and surgery. In 1999, she moved to Bad Mergentheim, Germany, with her two children. During 2000-2004, she worked in the areas of internal medicine and surgery at the Caritas hospital in Bad Mergentheim. In February, 2004, she met Wolfgang Woeppel, MD. Dr. Reis was impressed with Dr. Woeppel’s way of thinking and his successful results with cancer patients, the likes of which she hadn’t seen before in conventional oncology. Because she believes that healing is a holistic process and was impressed by Dr. Woeppel’s treatment methods, she started working with him at Hufeland Klinik in 2004.
What Cancer Is and What Causes It
We see cancer, like most chronic diseases, as the result of disharmony in the body. Its causes are multi-factorial, so the treatment approach at our clinic involves bringing the body back into balance again. Dr. Woeppel, the founder of Hufeland Klinik, believed that chronic and (especially) malignant diseases occur when the metabolism and natural resistance of an organism are negatively altered by various “causal factors.” These causal factors may happen either in the womb or after birth, and include things like genetic abnormalities, microbes, dental and tonsillar foci, abnormal intestinal flora, poor diet, physical and chemical influences in the environment, and other possible factors.
These factors cause complex disorders and weaken the body’s defense mechanisms, organs and systems, and especially the immune system, which is responsible for protection against disease. In the presence of these causal factors, the body is weakened and cancer cells are able to develop easily, like seeds in well-prepared soil. Since they aren’t met with any resistance, they quickly form tumors that spread out, metastasize, and further weaken the body. Therefore, cancer is simply the outward symptom of an ongoing, serious, generalized chronic disease that has already been present in the body for years. Dr. Woeppel often said, “The tumor is not the disease.” So when a surgeon removes a cancer tumor, he has only eliminated one symptom of the patient’s disease; he hasn’t cured that patient. Whenever patients have had malignant tumors totally removed, they are at an increased risk for developing new tumors or metastases, and should therefore consider immunobiological treatments to prevent this from happening.
Cancer isn’t just about the disorder of a single organ, but is instead always about the expression of a comprehensive disorder of the whole person’s body and soul. Therefore, holistic therapy must address the individual causes which led to cancer in the first place.
Our Holistic Approach to Healing
Holistic therapy stimulates and supports the body’s self-healing powers. Our clinic’s main aim is to discover the best treatment strategy for each one of our patients and then convey that strategy to them. In this process, we strive to integrate conventional medicine with holistic, biological medicine, in order to discover which proven methods of treatment to apply to each patient.
The so-called “spontaneous remissions” that happen in some people seem to indicate that the body’s natural healing power is able to cure even fatal diseases, and that holistic therapy is worthwhile, even for people with advanced cancers. So our biological immunotherapy treatments are suitable for malignant diseases (including brain tumors, M. Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas), even if patients have metastases and have been diagnosed by conventional medicine as incurable. Our treatments still offer them a chance at wellness. For cases of severe illness, we combine our natural biological treatments with mild conventional treatments because the combination of both can provide better results than if one or the other type of treatment is used alone. Otherwise, our treatments are predominantly biological (natural) and are designed to rebuild the body’s immune system. They are based on Dr. Josef Issels’ work.
