The Juan ‘HANSI’ Hirschmann Story


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. Professor 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.

Because of this intense relationship with plants, he studied 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 benefited.

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® beyond Argentina.
