The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s
extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw
juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally
reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging
side effects. This powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune
system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other
degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a
treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes and,
most famously, cancer.
I have spent the last week listening to several hours worth of Charlotte Gerson explaining The Gerson Therapy. I also bought and began reading the book The Gerson Therapy: The Amazing Nutritional Program for Cancer.
I'm doing the research because I have learned what it's like to feel great, and I desperately want to do everything I can to get my body to a place where it is functioning at its highest level. In one of the videos Charlotte Gerson uses the example of a Maserati to describe the condition of our bodies. She says just imagine a Maserati owner. He has this amazing car that he loves and that performs at the highest level, but when the gas runs out he refuels it with sugar water. Can you imagine? Well, that is exactly what we are doing do our bodies.
I didn't put that in quotes because I can't remember exactly what she said, but it really struck a cord with me. She was right on. We are refueling our bodies with sugar, i.e. pasta, desserts, soda, etc. and other even more harmful substances.
The Gerson Therapy has about a 40% success rate with terminally ill cancer patients who come to The Gerson Institute after the doctors have sent them home telling them there is nothing else they can do. Charlotte Gerson very simply states that the reason people develop cancer and other illness is for two reasons: toxicity and deficiency. Once you get rid of all the toxins in the body and replenish it with nourishment the body heals itself - of everything! The body does not work like doctors think it does. Treat high blood pressure with this, obesity with that, cancer with something else. No, the body is either sick or it's not. It does not discriminate.
I think that is WAY better news than sliced bread.
ABOUT CHARLOTTE GERSON
Charlotte Gerson is the daughter of Max Gerson. Max Gerson was a medical doctor who suffered from migraine headaches. He developed the Gerson Therapy through trial and error in an attempt to get rid of his migraine headaches when the pills no longer worked for him. Once he was rid of the migraine headaches he started helping others with migraines and realized they were also being healed of all their other ailments. That's how it started. His daughter, Charlotte Gerson is 91 years old and she has carried on her father's work and has spent her life trying to educate people about the body's ability to heal itself. To this day she still works at The Gerson Institute in San Diego educating patients about how to carry on the Gerson Therapy once they get home. I can't get enough of her.
In the introduction to the book The Gerson Therapy: The Amazing Nutritional Program for Cancer, by Charlotte Gerson and Morton Walker, they explain that in 1946 Dr. Gerson went before the senate to testify regarding the Pepper-Neely anti-cancer bill and explain that he had found a successful treatment for cancer. The book states:
The impressive testimony of this anticancer specialist and his patients caused Senator Pepper to call a press conference for bringing information about the Gerson Therapy before the media. However, a massive number of lobbyist for the immensely wealthy Pharmaceutical Manufacturer's Association, The American Medical Association, and the American Cancer Society prevailed on reporters to ignore the Gerson press conference and attend a cocktail party where free food would be served and libations would be flowing.
If you Google "Pepper-Neely Bill" all the top links will take you to stories about Gerson's testimony and how it was kept under wraps. From what I understand it was completely expunged from the record. If that's not bad enough, did you know that it is illegal in America to treat cancer with anything but chemo and radiation! In the second video you will learn that oncologists are the largest group of people who won't take chemo or radiation.
Anyway, my plan was to just post a few videos for you to watch. So, I guess I'll do that now.
The first five videos are a radio interview with Charlotte Gerson. Start here! This interview is fantastic.
If you want more info, the sixth video goes more in depth and also to tells people how they can incorporate the Gerson Therapy into their own lives.
The seveth video is three hours long and it goes into great depth about the specifics of the Gerson Therapy. It is Charlotte Gerson doing a lecture for The College of Naturopathic Medicine in the UK. I don't expect you to watch this video, I just wanted to make it available. I am an hour and a half into the video. It's worth listening to if you have the time. You can always pull it up on your phone, plug it into your aux port or use your Bluetooth and listen to it in the car.
