Gawler Foundation – Cancer Patients at Risk from Inaccurate Clinical Reporting in a High-Profile Alternative Treatment Story – Australian Medical Journal

By Pip (Philip) Cornall – A great injustice has been done to cancer patients – a small ‘myth’ became a snowball and one woman’s attempts to correct the myth and tell the true story have been thwarted until now. That is about injustice to her and all the cancer patients harmed by following the myth. It is also support to oncologists who have to clean up the messes when extreme diets and meditating fail to remove fast spreading tumours. That is why this article and more will appear on male challenge


It’s rare for a naturopath/herbalist to be published in a prestigious Australian medical journal and even rarer that that she would take the opportunity to correct a famous alternative cancer healing myth that she was intimately involved with.

With stubborn persistence, including a decade when seriously ill, Grace Gawler has never stopped trying to correct the spread of errors regarding ex-husband, Ian Gawler’s famous cancer remission—a story she was intimately involved with for 22 years. Because the myth had 32 years of big media events it has influenced cancer patients and doctors worldwide – we’ve seen much evidence of this in our own practice – believing Ian Gawler cured his cancer from meditation and a vegan diet.Gr

Now, The Australian Medical Journal, (MJA), has published ace Gawler’ser revealing letter, supporting proof and photographs. Grace Gawler is widely known as the sole care giver and researcher for Ian Gawler when he had bone cancer (1975) and given just weeks to live (1976).

Grace, respected for 35 years of contributions to cancer support medicine, highlights serious errors in an MJA article published about Ian Gawler in 2008.

Called  ‘True Stories’ the article in question was written by Dr Ruth Gawler and Professor Jelinek, both employees of the Gawler Foundation, a  foundation for  cancer support that Grace inspired and co-founded.

The MJA article chronicles the 30 year cancer healing history of Ian Gawler. But is the ‘True Stories’ article actually true?

Here is the link to the MJA letter
