Dr. Josef Issels treated more than 12,000 cancer patient who had been written off as incurable by other doctors. He claimed no miracle cures, but the success record of his revolutionary whole body treatment was extraordinary. This is the story of a tempestuous life; his Ringberg Clinic in Bavaria, where cancer specialists from all over the world sent patients; and his struggle against the medical establishment which put Dr. Issels in prison, charged with fraud and manslaughter. Following a five-year court battle, the doctor was cleared. His clinic was re-licensed. No doctor was more controversial. No doctor had a more dramatic life.
