I would like to say that I am very pleased with the Hallwang Clinic. There is nothing like the Clinic here in Australia and it is a very long journey to take to Germany from here in order to receive cancer treatment that should be available for everyone. I have just returned from my third stay at the Clinic which was only for two days when I received immune system vitamins and vaccines according to the antibodies found in my blood that I would be receptive to. This I feel is what is missing in Australia and that is personalised testing for the medicines that a person would be receptive to. In Australia there still just is a line of medicines that is used for everyone to see if they respond to the medicine. For example, at Hallwang I was tested for my responsiveness to Removab which I tested negative for. So I did not have to waste time and money only to find out that it would not work for me. This is not done in Australia. I am given vitamin infusions which I need and support my immune system which is also not done in Australia. It would be good if Australia followed Germany in infusing patients with vitamin support before they receive other treatmens such as chemotherapy, which depletes a person.
It was also a pleasure to stay at the Clinic and this time it was only for two days as it was not found necessary to stay for longer. All the staff are truly dedicated and very diligent in their work. The hygiene was excellent as was the fresh food. This is not found in many places in Australia. The staff took any time it was necessary to make sure that I was comfortable and felt safe.
I have bone metastases from breast cancer, and I went to Hallwang as there is nothing else in Australia only going through treatments that are really “blanket” treatments for everyone and they may not work. I have great faith in the chief oncologist and all the staff that if my cancer progresses, Hallwang Clinic will try their very best for the best outcome for me, I would encourage everyone to travel to Germany as there is life saving treatment available there.
