FRIEDRICH DOUWES, M.D. was born in Germany and received his M.D. Degree from the University of Marburg, Zurich, Heidelberg in 1962. He then went to the United States and completed his Internship at Philadelphia General Hospital in 1967 and a Fellowship in Hematology & Oncology from Hahnemann University, also located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1970.

Returning to Germany, Dr. Douwes spent the next 10 years as Senior Physician in the Oncology Department of University Hospital of Gottengun. He published several articles pertaining to biological and immunological problems of tumors.

Not satisfied with the clinical results attained as an Orthodox Oncologist, he began to integrate Alternative Methods into his daily work. In 1980, as the Medical Director of Sonneburg Hospital in Bad Sooden-Allendorf, one of the largest cancer centers in Germany, he founded one of the first self-help groups and first Psych-Oncological Department.

Between 1981 and 1987, Dr. Douwes developed his integrative cancer concept, combining conventional and complementary cancer therapies. In 1991, he founded St. George Hospital in Bad Aibling, Germany. St. George offers Hyperthermia, Immuno-Therapy and Electro-Therapy in its Oncology Department, and they also have a Lyme Disease Center.

Over 5,000 cancer patients from all over the world have received treatment at St. George Hospital. Many receive remarkable results in all types of advanced cancers.
