Hans Nieper / Eumetabolic Treatment

Hans Nieper / Eumetabolic Treatment


GERMANY, USA -- It is sadly ironic that just as Germany's fabled medical innovator Hans A. Nieper's book setting forth his vision for medicine was coming into print in the USA the pioneer was dying in his native country (see ICHF Newsletter III:I, 1999).

Even so, his philosophical legacy at least lives on in the inspired pages of The Curious Man (Garden City NY: Avery., 188 pp., trade paperback, $13.95; 1999), co-written with Arthur D. Douglas, a veteran biochemical and biological researcher, and Gene S. Eagle-Oden, an electrical engineer and management expert whose last decade and a half have been spent in promoting complementary/natural therapies, particularly those pioneered by Hans Nieper.
In this running commentary/assay, Dr. Nieper detailed not only the history of the laetrile controversy and the effective anti-cancer drugs it spawned, but he made plain his vision for medicine's future.

He wrote:

"Many members of the orthodox medical faculty have been blinded by the pharmaceutical establishment. They see only (bio) chemical phenomena in health and disease; they largely ignore the entirety of the human organism.
"But without allowing growth and change, there soon will no longer be a place for today's orthodox therapies. If orthodox therapeutic medicine wants to join in our vision of a new biology, it will need to close the gap, which is comparable to abandoning the quill pen for the computer."

Hans A. Nieper MD, the author of some 360 research papers, and involved most of his life with finding answers to cancer, multiple sclerosis, bone disorders, aging, diabetes, kidney and cardiac disease, is also noted for his work in physics.

His widely respected "shielding theory of gravity" asserts that there is an inextricable relationship between the energy of the universe, the body's cellular energy, and individual personal health. This is detailed in his book Dr. Nieper's Revolution in Technology and Medicine.

Dr. Nieper, who was influential in US President Bill Clinton's failed effort at healthcare reform, has shared his vision of what can be accomplished:

"In Germany, Japan, and many other countries, the medical establishment has succeeded in balancing the need for regulations and standards with the patient's right to choose from and to have free access to all modalities of treatment.
"Using existing scientific knowledge and research, these nations have developed standards and guidelines for therapies that fall outside of the traditional parameters of the pharmaceutical industry.

"For example, treatments prescribing nutritional health-food supplements and herbal preparations are readily given. As a result, physicians in these countries can prescribe the natural agents, and patients can purchase and use them on their own with a reasonable assurance of their purity and safety.

"Such a system provides more options and a broader spectrum of medical treatment."
He added:
"The majority of alternative remedies for the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases are of natural (biological) origin or formulation and are nontoxic.

"Therefore, they could be produced as nutrient, natural-substance, or self-treatment remedies, and could be sold as such. This would make them subject simply to the rules of the free marketplace, just as foods are. They would become far less expensive than the proprietary toximolecular medications offered by the orthodox medical and pharmaceutical establishment."

Of his long battle for the recognition of laetrile (amygdalin, nitriloside, vitamin B17) and its byproducts, Dr. Nieper synthesized:

"The whole laetrile affair is not without some positive irony; today's research gives high priority to gene-repairing agents in treating cancer, and deals primarily with the functional aldehydes, of which Laetrile -- damned by US orthodox medicine -- was among the first.

"For over twenty years, ureyl-mandelonitrile [developed from laetrile research] has been the mainstay of my clinic at Hannover and for my work at the Paracelsus Silbersee Hospital. I continue to observe the greatest clinical results I have seen in forty years when higher doses are administered more frequently."

In Memoriam: Dr. Hans Nieper

This past October, society suffered a terrible loss. Renowned cancer doctor, Hans Nieper, died at age 73. Dr. Nieper from Hanover, Germany was famously known as the cancer doctor to many.
Dr. Nieper served as the president of the German Association of Vacuum Field Energy and past president of the German Oncology Society. Hans began challenging conventional medicine at an early age. In the early '50s he completed his doctoral examinations with an explanation of autoimmune diseases -- a concept considered revolutionary at the time. During 1955 and '56 he joined Professor Druckrey's cancer research laboratory in Freiburg. He recognized then that cancer therapy (treating cancer with poisonous cytostatic substances) was on the wrong track. Following further clinical activities from 1956 to 1958, in Hamlin, he joined the Paul Ehrlich Institute in Frankfurt. During that year Dr. Nieper conceived and developed a number of new, medically effective substances that laid the foundation for later worldwide fame. Among his distinguished patients were John Wayne, Yul Brynner, William Holden, Princess Caroline of Monaco. He even advised President Reagan. To not only those people, but many others, he stood out as a renowned scientist, a wonderful healer.

One of his most important quotes was: "Cancer must not be treated as a local disease. Cancer attacks the whole body, and therefore one has to strengthen the whole body."

Throughout his distinguished medical career, Dr. Hans Nieper did not accept a negative answer when it came to treating chronic illnesses. He was involved in researching and defining the ways provided to us to prevent illness and heal ourselves through nature. Hans defined the vital role that the body's biochemistry plays in its overall well being.
Dr. Nieper recognized in the years of scientific advancement that orthodox medicine became so involved with the pharmaceutical and technical advancements, it lost sight of nature's part. It developed remedies that destroyed the cancer cells, but in the process also destroyed other immune cells. Diet and nutritional therapies were ignored. A weakened immune system gives the cancer cells a second chance. By recognizing this and the wholeness of life, Dr. Nieper developed natural (orthomolecular) therapies for treating not only cancer, but other chronic illnesses. He published over 360 articles and essays relating to his work and therapies. These writings are filed in the USA at the Admiral Ruge Archives of the Brewer Science Library, Richland Center, Wisconsin. His book titled, "Dr. Nieper's Revolution in Technology, Medicine and Society," advances our knowledge in several fields and explains the inextricable relationship between the body's cellular energy and our own personal health.

Besides his work in oncology, Dr. Nieper has also been involved with vacuum field energy research. He identifies that the spaces between atomic matter are not empty but filled with energy called vacuum field energy. It is being researched for the many useful forms of energy that it can provide and its ability to improve the health state of cells and the entire being.

Among his many distinguished affiliations, Dr. Nieper was a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and honorary president of the International Academy of Preventive Medicine.

It is a personal loss for the Center for Frontier Sciences for he honored the Center by serving on its Advisory Board and presenting a lecture at Temple University in March of '97. The Center is so grateful for the support that he provided and the collection of his work that is part of its archives.

Even during his last days on earth, he endured failing health but did not allow it to stop him from seeing his patients. Dr. Hans Nieper was the true definition of a doctor -- dedicated to his practice and willing to sacrifice his life so that others may live.
