Throughout our lives
our bodies are being filled with a variety of disease and cancer causing
pollutants. These toxins reach us through the air we breathe, the food we eat,
the medicines we take, and the water we drink.
As more of these
poisons are used every day and cancer rates continue to climb, being able to
turn to a proven, natural, detoxifying treatment like the Gerson Therapy is not
only reassuring, but necessary.
The Gerson Therapy is a powerful, natural treatment that boosts
your body's own immune system to heal
many other degenerative diseases.
One aspect of the
Gerson Therapy that sets it apart from most other treatment methods is its
An abundance of
nutrients from thirteen fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing
your body with a super dose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. These substances
then break down diseased tissue in the body, while enemas aid in eliminating the
lifelong buildup of toxins from the liver.
With its whole-body
approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body's
magnificent ability to heal itself. There is no damaging side-effects.
Over 200 articles in
respected medical literature and thousands of people cured of their "incurable"
diseases document the Gerson Therapy's effectiveness.

The Gerson Therapy is a
state of the art, contemporary, holistic, alternative, and natural treatment
which utilizes the body's own healing mechanism in the treatment and cure of
cancer and other chronic debilitating illness.
When it was
introduced to the world by Max Gerson, M.D., the dietary therapy was so far
ahead of its time that there were almost no rationales available in the
scientific literature to explain how it could produce cures in cancer, and
chronic, as well as infectious diseases.
Gerson first published on the
topic of cancer in 1945, almost forty years before the adoption of the current
official U.S. National Cancer Institute program on diet, nutrition, and cancer.
The Gerson Therapy
as a natural, holistic, alternative treatment did cure many cases of advanced
tuberculosis, heart disease, cancer and numerous lesser conditions. The Gerson
Therapy was established as a major contribution to the medical field, through
the publication of articles in peer reviewed medical literature. (See
Max Gerson treated
many hundreds of patients and continued to develop and refine his therapy up
until his death in 1959, at the age of 78.
His most famous
patient was Dr. Albert Schweitzer, whom
Gerson cured of advanced diabetes when Schweitzer was 75. Schweitzer returned to
his African hospital, won the Nobel Prize, and worked past age 90.
Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote "I
see in Dr. Gerson one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine."
Most recently, Dr.
Gerson was recognized as a pioneer in his field when he was inducted into the
Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame in Ottawa, Canada on May 14, 2005.
Dr. Gerson joined
seven other giants of medicine whose seminal work has been influential in the
medical and scientific worlds, and are considered pioneers in their respective
It is rare to find
cancer, arthritis, or other degenerative diseases in cultures considered
"primitive" by Western civilization.
Is it because of diet?
The fact that
degenerative diseases appear in these cultures only when modern packaged foods
and additives are introduced would certainly support that idea.
Max Gerson said "Stay close to
nature and its eternal laws will protect you."
He considered that
degenerative diseases were brought on by toxic, degraded food, water and air.
The Gerson Therapy
seeks to regenerate the body to health, supporting each important metabolic
requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from almost 20 pounds of
organically grown fruits and vegetables daily.
Most of the organic fruits and
vegetables are used to make fresh raw juice. It is important to drink one glass
of juice every hour, 13 times per day.
Raw and cooked solid
foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as

naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, extremely low in
sodium and fats, and rich in fluids.
The following is a
typical daily diet for a Gerson individual on the full therapy regimen:
Three full vegetarian meals, freshly
prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A
typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes,
vegetable soup and juice.

Individuals must have a complete understanding of the Gerson Therapy so that
they may effectively continue the regimen at home after leaving the treatment
