    ^Detoxification? Before attempting to do this, please consult an Oncologist ( a physician who specializes in treating cancer).

    If you read the website, you'd notice that they actually advocate that this treatment be monitored by health care personel. It's not something you can do on your own.

    I will be eventually merging this with the main cancer thread, depending on how the discussion progresses.

    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 is used to make fresh raw juice, one glass every hour, 13 times per day. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases. The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.

    Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure. To prevent this, the Gerson Therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body's essential defenses - enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells - and the body - can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.


    Caution: Do not start the Gerson Therapy without the supervision of a Gerson practitioner if any of the following conditions apply:

    Chemotherapy
    Diabetes
    Brain metastases
    Severe kidney damage
    Foreign bodies such as pacemakers, breast implants, steel plates or screws.
    Patients must be able to eat, drink and eliminate normally.

    The Gerson Therapy cannot be administered to organ transplant recipients.

    The Gerson diet is 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 patient on the full therapy regimen:

    Thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot/apple and green-leaf juices prepared hourly from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
    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.
    Fresh fruit and fresh fruit dessert available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.


    All medications used in connection with the Gerson Therapy are classed as biologicals, materials of organic origin that are supplied in therapeutic amounts.

    Potassium compound
    Lugol's solution
    Vitamin B-12
    Thyroid hormone
    Injectable Crude Liver Extract
    Pancreatic Enzymes
    Enemas of coffee and/or chamomile

    No, it's the first time I've heard about it. I'll have to check the literature and get back to you on this.
  • im not a total disbeliever of alternative therapies.... but the post was right in this remark:

    Caution: Do not start the Gerson Therapy without the supervision of a Gerson practitioner.

    The therapy is not one of mainstream medicine but a medical doctor probably formulated the concoctions nonetheless. He could have a good theoretical reasons for it. Ill reserve my comments for the moment.
