"You are unique - and so is your treatment"
En traitement depuis 5 ans pour un cancer du sein triple négatif métastasée essentiellement au poumon et médiastin , j'avais fait beaucoup de lignes de chimiothérapies sans résultat. Je perdais espoir devant le peu d'options thérapeuthiques qu'il me restait en France. J' ai eu connaissance de l expérience de Françaises qui avaient obtenu d 'excellents résultats grace à la clinique. Je suis entrée en contact avec elles pour mieux comprendre. Après avoir mis en place une cagnotte solidaire pour m'aider à financer le traitement à la carte proposée par la clinique Hallwang, je les ai contactees. En mars 2020, j'apprenais que ma maladie évoluait(5 nouveaux foyers cancéreux), j'étais dans un essai clinique qui a pris fin suite à cette progression du cancer. J ai décidé de partir vite dès avril 2020.Après 2 mois et demi de traitement personnalisé, mon tepscan révèle une réponse métabolique complète. Je ne réalise pas encore ce résultat extraordinaire qui j 'espère va se poursuivre dans le temps. C' est juste magique : ma 2eme vie commence!!!!Merci au staff et à l équipe médicale qui sont d 'une extrême gentillesse....
During the past 5 years of treatment for my triple-negative breast cancer, which has metastasized to the lung and mediastinum, I have received several lines of chemotherapy without results. I have lost faith in the few therapeutic options left for me in France. I have learned from the experience of French patients who have obtained excellent results thanks to the clinic (Hallwang Clinic). I got in touch with the clinic for more information. After having started a fund raising campaign to help finance the treatment offered by the Hallwang Clinic I contacted them. In March 2020 I learned that my cancer was progressing (5 new cancerous foci). I was part of a clinical trial which ended because of the progression. So I decided to leave short-termed in April 2020 (in order to start treatment at the Hallwang Clinic). After 2,5 months of personalized treatment my MRI shows a complete metabolic response. I still cannot believe this extraordinary result which I hope will continue. It is just magic. My second life begins. Thanks to the staff and medical team who are extremely kind.
My name is Victoria and I’m from the US. I was originally diagnosed with hormone positive breast cancer in August 2018 and subsequently rediagnosed with advanced breast cancer which had spread to my bones. lymph nodes and lungs in 2019.
My oncologist in the US did not offer much hope and recommended palliative care which had to be preceded by a major shoulder surgery (full shoulder replacement).
She also encouraged me to enjoy what little time I had left with my seven year old daughter and family. I was more devastated after my visit with oncologist than after the diagnosis. I felt good overall and just could not accept such a pessimistic outlook.
I started researching my options. I strongly felt that I need to find a healing environment and a doctor I can trust. I spent days zooming in on the most promising treatment options and interviewing different clinics. It is truly overwhelming – one feels like navigating a maze in full darkness. So many things were at stake for me – my life, future of my family (including their financial well-being in case if I do not make it and spend all family savings on treatments not covered by insurance), etc.
After the first few minutes of talking to Dr. Nolting at Hallwang, I knew that I’ve found what I was looking for. There were no promises, no miracle claims, just a calm, confident and very knowledgeable discussion of my options. It was very clear to me that the aim of my treatment would be to do everything possible to heal me. I suddenly felt at peace. I decided right there and then that Hallwang is the best path for me. And I’m so happy I did!
Although it is too early to claim the full victory, I’m thrilled with the progress so far. Besides feeling great, my most recent CT scan showed impressive progress – many tumors shrank up to 70%. I feel no shoulder pain, the arm mobility improved and my oncologist in the US agreed to wait on the surgery option. I’m confident that the surgery won’t be needed after all. This is quite incredible – if I did not go to Hallwang, I would have been in a bad situation now.
I’m truly grateful to Dr. Nolting and the clinic. The environment there is part of the healing process. Every single member of the team goes out of the way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Administrative team is outstanding – speedy, professional and caring. I’m impressed with how they handle every request, every phone call and every issue. Nothing seems like a big deal to them. The medical and nursing team is in its own league! I never felt so loved and so relaxed at a clinic. And their professionalism is beyond impressive. I should also mention the food and catering staff. High quality, lovingly prepared and served – such a joy to go for every meal.
LETTER TO HALLWANG PRIVATE ONCOLOGY CLINIC
From Hallwang patient Mrs. Naumka Nina F. with chaperoning husband Dr. Ronald F. – January 2020
18 months ago I was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer in my country Canada. I was given no hope for recovery by Canadian oncologists. I am pleased to share my true story to encourage others to consider another opportunity for help.
When I was updating my devastating news in August 2018 with my Canadian dentist Dr. Leo Gonzalez he changed my dental appointment into a lengthy personal heartfelt consultation in which he suggested that I consider a private clinic in Germany. He was educated in Germany.
From that time my husband began extensive research and after he spoke twice by phone with Hallwang’s senior oncologist, Dr. Nolting and forwarded my file documentation, we met Dr. Nolting who patiently explained in extensive medical detail the meaning of the diagnosis and of proposed treatments. Everyone at Hallwang clinic since our first moment has been so warmly supportive and encouraging… we have truly become friends.
After the first 5 days in September 2018, my daily blood testing for tumor markers such as CA 15-3 confirmed improvements. When I expressed initially to Dr. Nolting how impressed I was with him, he modestly replied… “I am even more impressed with you.” Throughout subsequent visits for further assessments and treatments, some of which were changed to different tests and treatments in response to ongoing response reports I met other patients from around the world whose true stories, some with very rare cancers all described being damaged from traditional treatments and being left no hope in their home countries. I now keep in contact with many of them worldwide via email as new friends. In early January 2020 my CT scan in Canada reported NO evidence of prior locations of cancer and I have no symptoms. I have come to feel that Hallwang clinic is my second home. I wish to express my gratitude to Drs. Nolting, Zarouff, Muhe, Wronka, and every one of the competent comforting nurses and other health professionals on the team … everyone’s expertise and their results are equalled by their sincerity!
In my opinion the entire team deserves a Nobel Peace Prize… bringing not only renewed health to others, but also PEACE. The chefs and all kitchen staff make one’s stay at Hallwang a first-class experience to which we always look forward. My special mention to oncologist Dr. Nora Muhe who touched my heart by holding my hands together emphasizing “you are not sick.” With her unique caring and humble uplifting spirit she even invited me to go shopping. We noted from the beginning and have witnessed ever since starting the truth in Hallwang’s mottos.. “to do as much as possible conservatively and naturally, but as traditionally as necessary” and “you are unique, and your treatment will be unique.” Dr. Nolting prescribes various standard oncology tests and treatments, some FDA-approved that have been continued in Canada. Nevertheless, the Hallwang clinic truly has its own irreplaceable UNIQUE diagnostic and therapeutic approaches that are not available anywhere else and that are essential to each person’s recovery to detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system, identify complex abnormalities, correct hormone imbalances and more. I also wish to thank my long time best Canadian medical physician Dr. Z. Rona for his big part in my journey before and since including my essential Hallwang clinic help. My honourable mention is for my son Dave whose consistent love and support reinforces my lifelong pride in calling him my son, a wonderful human being.… but it is not only for these reasons that I feel that I am the most fortunate person in the world… it is also that I am married to the best human being, my husband Ron whose tireless medical researching, consultations with physicians, and minute to minute support, encouragement and PARTNERSHIP, along with God’s guidance, has carried me on this successful journey.
I invite others in need to read the Hallwang clinic website and consider if this clinic’s approaches may be appropriate (www.hallwang-clinic.com). Their several oncologists are board-certified (in USA, Germany and the European Society of Medical Oncology) in each of the medical specialities of oncology, haematology and internal medicine.
In addition to their UNIQUE combination of superior educational accomplishments and their close relationships with other world top cancer researchers and specialists, the Hallwang clinic health professionals are first and foremost humane human beings. Another Hallwang motto : “A relationship based on TRUST between doctor and patient is just as important as the treatment itself.”
I have seen some bad press lately about the clinic and just thought I would send a message of thanks and appreciation to all of you.
Not only have I had healing from my treatments at Hallwang but I have met some of the most amazing people - Drs, nurses, and office staff.
I feel so loved and supported there I think that could be enough to heal someone. I am so blessed to be able to have been given the opportunity for treatment at Hallwang.
I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for me. When I arrived back in Dec I had so much bone pain I couldn’t stand up straight or take a deep breath. I was weak and needed help to walk a distance. I was thin and had lost a lot of weight. I was doing so poorly the family had flown my kids out to Germany to spend Christmas with me because I wasn’t sure we would have another to spend together. After receiving treatment at Hallwang that has changed. I feel very well. My pain is gone. My weight is back to normal and I am much stronger. I saw my US doctor last week and he said I look better than he has ever seen me look (he has been my doctor for 10 + years).
Thank you for putting up with all my crazy philosophies on health and the questioning I do. You are always understanding and open to what I ask and say. I appreciate that so much. There are not many doctors that are as kind and understanding as you (or have such a great sense of humor).
I was diagnosed at age 40 with a stage II triple negative cancer in both breasts, with BRACA mutation.
Despite the heavy treatments I received successively (neoadjuvant chemotherapy, mastectomy and lumpectomy, adjuvant chemotherapy, radiotherapy), my cancer continued to progress very rapidly and metastasized to different parts of the body (liver, bones and ganglions).
At this stage, I was proposed a palliative chemotherapy to slowdown the evolution of the disease, provided that my body was responsive to it.
I had heard of a promising treatment with immunotherapy for triple negative breast cancer. But the only way to obtain this treatment in France was to integrate one of the clinical trials. Unfortunately they were refused because I did not fit the criteria of the studies. Thus, after launching a crowdfunding campaign, I decided to go to Germany in november 2018 for new treatment options. Indeed, I knew a french patient with a diagnosis very close of mine who was successfully treated there. After less than 5 months of targeted immunotherapy and personalised treatment in Hallwang combined with a chemotherapy in France, I am now in complete remission. Youpi!
We wish you a happy and healthy new year 2018! To start this year on a positive and inspiring note, we want to share with you Hande’s story. Hande is a 36 year old lovely young lady and mother of a 2 year old wonderful daughter. Unfortunately, at age 35, Hande was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, at time of diagnosis no metastases were present. In February 2017, she received her last dose of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, followed by surgery removing a 2.3 cm tumor and sentinel lymph nodes. Radiotherapy was completed in April 2017. In September 2017, a PET scan then showed multiple metastases to the lung, liver, lymph nodes and bone. On MRI, also brain metastases were diagnosed. Hande and her family were devastated.
In October 2017, Hande came to the Hallwang Clinic and received a combined immunotherapeutic approach with chemotherapy and personalized strategies, along with supportive treatments. Now, before the year 2017 ended, Hande and her family received the wonderful news that she is in complete remission! Her last scans from December show no sign of disease anymore, also her MRI of the brain is completely clear.
We are so happy for you, Hande, and hope that 2018 brings you all you were hoping for, especially health and wonderful times with your family!
Your Hallwang team
In 2008 I discovered that I had grade 3 breast cancer in my right breast. I was given a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In 2012 the cancer returned in the same breast. I was then given a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. I was not offered chemotherapy or anything further. I continued with my life in a healthy, positive way. In January 2016 after feeling very ill it was confirmed that the cancer had spread to my bones, liver, lung, lymphatic system and now my left breast.
I was given 6 months to live and was told there was nothing more could be done.
From January 2016 to August 2016 I continued self- medication along with diet, exercise, vitamins, minerals and anything else which I had learnt had a positive effect on cancer cells. Unfortunately, by the end of August 2016 I was very ill and told the cancer had spread into my skull and spine. At this time I became bedridden, unable to talk, walk or have any quality of life. My life as I knew it came to an end. The oncologists said there was no chance for me and wanted to put me in a hospice. My friends were desperate to find something that could help save my life… and it was in November 2016 that they found the Hallwang Clinic in Germany. My scans were sent and they said they could help me. At this point I was given up to 4 weeks to live and it was imperative I got to The Hallwang very quickly. I was flown by Air Ambulance to Germany where an Ambulance was waiting to transport me to the clinic. From this point my life was about to be transformed. In total I spent 5 months in the clinic receiving treatments. The Hallwang saved my life and gave me back my quality of life. After receiving the first targeted immunotherapies my life changed completely. Within 11 days the physio, Jurgen, had me walking on sticks down the corridor. After having been in a wheelchair for 4 months, this was a true miracle. I became able to talk and interact with people once again. In truth I had started to remember who I had been before my body had become ravaged with cancer. My time at the Hallwang was remarkable. It is a truly holistic place which concentrates on making you better. The doctors, nursing staff and everyone there is committed to making you well. The food is fantastic, all created to ensure you are eating the best ingredients to keep you strong throughout the treatments. The setting is in the middle of The Black Forest which warms your soul every day. Alongside the treatments you are given daily infusions of everything your body needs to keep the side effects to a minimum. These include all vitamins, minerals, boosting fluids and therapies. There is a fantastic phychiatrist, Ben, who is always available to discuss worries and also offers numerous meditation techniques which truly work, even for pain relief. Where I am now!
I left The Hallwang at the end of March 2017. ALL of my tumours have shrunk. My skull cancer has reduced 80 %. My breast cancer has gone completely. My liver tumour has been reduced to 1 cm x 1.5 cm. There is no sign of any tumours in my spinal fluid or lung. I walk twice a day with my dog. I am running my business, which has been my passion for 20 years. I laugh and feel blessed to be here. I feel better than I have for 2 years and my tumour markers have shrunk from 5000 to (last test 21/6/2017) 28!!! The normal range is 0 – 32. Miracles happen at The Hallwang. I met the most inspirational people of my life. I made friends for life and more importantly I got my life back.
When I left England on 22nd November 2016 no-one thought they would see me again. They now see me smiling every day. I am returning to The Hallwang at the end of July. I am probably more excited than I have ever been to see doctors, nurses, restaurant staff and my friends the cleaners (Gerda especially). The Hallwang is all about HOPE and not hopelessness. Thomas Carlyle said … “he who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything“
MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!
Earlier this year we reported about Claire´s amazing recovery after she had been diagnosed with advanced, metastatic breast cancer and meningitis carcinomatosa. Claire came to our clinic in a poor clinical condition, unable to walk and confused. Now she is exercising and getting fitter and stronger every day. Tumor markers have further dropped significantly and last scans showed ongoing treatment response with regressive lesions and "distinctly better findings" with "completely regressive edema". We are so happy for you, Claire and see you back at the clinic to continue on this path!
My name is Kate and I am from the UK, originally diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer in October 2010 and then rediagnosed with advanced breast cancer which had spread to my bones, liver and lung in Dec 2012, after exhausting all treatment options in the UK I was told in September 2016 that due to limited drugs available, the fact that I had numerous failed lines of treatment and the fact that my liver was 60 per cent covered in tumours it would be unlikely that I made Christmas. I was given a treatment option but encouraged to enjoy what little time I had left with my six year old daughter and family despite feeling well!
On hearing this it would have been quite easy just to accept this but I just couldn't, I have too much to live for!
Further to my research I found the Hallwang Private Oncology clinic and quickly got in touch with them to see if there were options. On arrival, at the Hallwang Private Oncology clinic myself and my partner were welcomed to the clinic for a consultation with the head oncologist. He was a breath of fresh air, full of positivity and his knowledge of all treatments, conventional and alternative, are incredible. Suddenly I felt like a person with an identity rather than a number who had been put in the 'written off' pile. All the staff and nurses were so friendly and the food was amazing. It was a ‚ home from home' feel which was important if I was to attend the clinic regularly. The medical team has since guided my treatment plan every step of the way and I have full confidence in them and as a result my tumour markers have dropped by over half, my liver enzymes are nearly in normal range and to top it off my three month scan showed substantial reduction of the tumours in my liver with no new sites.
I have attended the clinic with my partner 'les' and also flown alone for treatment. I never feel worried that I will be alone as I have made lots of new friends at the clinic and everyone is so welcoming, individuals and families from all over the world with that one wish 'to be well again'. I am fully reliant on fundraising through gofundme and so far I have been blessed, I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have got me to this point.
Here some encouraging results from one of our breast cancer patients. S. (wants to stay anonymous, but happy to share results) first arrived in our clinic in June last year, after having received the devastating diagnosis of left-sided breast cancer with lymph node metastases. Her mother had just been successfully treated at our clinic for ovarian cancer (now in complete remission), so S. turned to us for help. Analysis of her tumor tissue revealed positivity for several treatment targets, so a multimodal treatment strategy including antibody treatment and further immunotherapy was initiated. Already in October 2016, a tumor mass could not be identified anymore in the left breast and S. achieved a complete remission status. She now decided to undergo a breast-conserving surgical treatment with axillary lymphadenectomy and is doing great.
We are so happy to share these amazing results!
"I am 47 years of age, male, and had stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2006. I received a mastectomy, Chemotherapy and was on hormone treatment, Tamoxifen, for 5 years. My cancer returned as stage 4 in 2014 and was in 14 of my lymph nodes and had metastasized to the lungs. My Oncologists in Australia could not offer me any new treatments and didn’t offer much hope, so I decided to make the trip to Germany due to their range of innovative, non-invasive treatments. They also have experience with male Breast Cancer unlike in Australia. I arrived at Hallwang Clinic July 2014, and stayed for just over 3 weeks.
I received immunotherapeutic treatments. I found the clinic like a home away from home. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and personalised treatment I received. I had little, if no side effects and I found the doctors at Hallwang to always have my best interest at heart.
When I returned to Australia, I continued to eat healthily with my no sugar, no carbohydrates diet and incorporated organic food into my life. Hallwang clinic also supplied me with 3 months of treatment to take home. I knew at any time if I had any questions, I could contact the doctors there. I also continued with Infusions and Hyperthermia treatments at home. My PET scan back in Australia, to my immense joy, has revealed that my cancer is now totally gone. I can only regard the treatment I received while at Hallwang Clinic as truly life saving.
We came to the Hallwang oncology clinic because Alice was treated in France for a very agressive relapse of a triple negative breast cancer in April 2016. Unfortunately the chemotherapy treatment given in France gave no result and it was impossible to have an immunotherapy in France either in a clinical trial or directly.
After 8 weeks of targeted immunotherapy treatment in Hallwang combined with a chemotherapy in France, Alice has been in a almost complete remission.

Nous sommes venus à la clinique d'oncologie Hallwang car Alice était traitée en France pour une récidive très agressive d'un cancer du sein triple négatif en Avril 2016. Malheureusement le traitement de chimiothérapie entrepris en France n'a donné aucun résultat et il était impossible d'entreprendre une immunothérapie en France soit dans un essai clinique soit directement. Après 8 semaines de traitement d'immunothérapie jointe à un vaccin à Hallwang, combiné avec une chimiothérapie en France, Alice s'est trouvée en rémission presque complète en Août 2016. L'immunothérapie et le vaccin sont poursuivis et Alice est en rémission complète au 6 mai 2019 depuis 17 mois.
