Dying To Have Known: The Gerson Therapy

The Gerson Therapy.

This is for anyone with health issues.  I’m not a doctor nor do I claim to be.  That said, there are some compelling documentaries floating around I’ve watched recently, as well as some great books that change instantly the way anyone viewing them looks at diseases like cancer, MS, diabetes, and more.

Dr. Albert Schweitzer (Nobel prize winner) wrote “I see in Dr. Gerson one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine.” Dr. Max Gerson (1881-1959) developed a nutritional protocol to cure diseases, with proven scientific results.”  Schweitzer was rid of his diabetes by Gerson’s Therapy and his wife was rid of her tuberculosis and the two families became long friends as a result.

Dr. Max Gerson declared to a U.S. Senate committee in 1946 that he had found a cure for cancer.  He had evidence to prove it, several case studies.  It came out in the papers, and was promptly ridiculed and ignored by the pharmaceutical industry and eventually the nation as a whole.

Even after his death many years later, after curing hundreds of their ills, Gerson’s daughter has continued quietly treating patients with the same therapy her father created to this day.  Her results… are world wide and stunning.  They’ve also been panned and ignored via an entire campaign of misinformation in the U.S. where the Gerson Therapy is illegal.  That’s in the U.S., aka the nation with the highest cancer rate in the world and the most money spent on healthcare.

In other nations, like Spain, Japan, Mexico, and others, however, the Gerson Therapy has been enthusiastically embraced and clinics are popping up all over.  Because it’s working there.  And it’s cheap.

There’s a letter hanging at the Gerson Institute in Southern California from Prince Charles, thanking Gerson’s institute for ridding his friend of terminal cancer.

In Japan, a preeminent surgeon respected throughout the nation has treated over 500 patients using Gerson’s therapy and is tracking their remissions over many years.  In fact, clinics using the Gerson Therapy have sprung up all over Japan and other Eastern nations as a result.

The secret to the therapy according to these documentaries?  There isn’t one of course.

As Hippocrates said, “Let food by thy medicine.” 

The Gerson Therapy consists of avoiding toxins, alcohol, sugar and processed foods, sticking to a raw and cooked organic plant based diet, consuming flax oil and putting up with coffee enemas to release stored toxins.   Ew.  or Whew!  You decide.

Gerson’s work was begun in the 20’s and 30’s and today is illegal in the United States, although more common and legal overseas.  Since the 30’s other scientists have corroborated his findings.  For the cliff notes, watch “Forks Over Knives”, “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead”, and read “The China Study.”  They all provide overwhelming evidence for the same results.  Nutrition and disease are inextricably linked.  Duh.

Nutrition based therapy scares big pharma.  They can’t control it or copyright it.  As a result, they can’t make billions of dollars off sick people with it.

For even further wonky scientific detail that will blow your mind, pick up “The China Study”, the book that the documentaries quote, done independently of Gerson and I believe without even knowing about him, some 50 years after his own research.  The China Study was commissioned by the Premier of China after he contracted cancer and wanted to know why.  It involved 800 million Chinese in villages all over the country over two decades to find out what made them sick.  Researchers worldwide participated.

The findings?

Eliminate processed foods, sugar, alcohol and heavy stress and keep your diet to under 15 percent animal and diary protein and you turn off the markers in your genes that allow you to get cancer.  You also start to repair previously thought irreparable damage to your body.  According to the documentary failed arteries repair themselves.  Scar tissue goes away.  Heart disease reverses.  Tumors shrink into nothing.

It’s worth doing your own investigation. Start with these two free videos on Youtube regarding Gerson’s Therapy.  “The Gerson Miracle” and “Dying To Have Known”.   Then go rent “Forks Over Knives”, “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead” and read “The China Study”.  Your eyes will be opened to a whole new world of potential control over your health.

I’m serious.  Do it.  You deserve it and so do the ones around you that perhaps would’ve gotten sick someday if you didn’t.
