'After being arrested for practicing medicine without a license from his Taylorville, Illinois clinic, Hoxsey went to Chicago around 1924 to prove his remedies’ efficacy to Morris Fishbein, the AMA head and editor of the newly started JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association).
Hoxsey’s tonic and salve was tested with a terminal cancer patient of Dr. Malcom Harris, Chicago policeman, Sgt. Thomas Manix. He was cured by Hoxsey’s herbal treatments in three months and wound up living another 10 years. Dr. Harris and Fishbein were impressed enough to extend a purchase offer to Hoxsey for the rights to his family’s formulas.'
