Dr. Gerson practiced in the US after coming from Germany during WWII. He was told they treat, not cure, in this country. He had terrible headaches which lead to a high potassium diet approach which started helping turberculosis and cancer patients. This evolved into more and more natural foods high in veggies, devoid of salt, fats and animal protein. His approach has all the things they have been finding as anti-cancer- carrot/apple juice, green juice from lettuce and tops from beets, special soup with potatoes, onions, leeks, celery and parsley root, garlic, tomatoes, slow cooked for 3 hours. The primary focus of it all is strengthening the liver, and also starving and dissolving the cancer. There are hourly juices. The potassium supplement was a result of 100 experiments to get a combination of 4 different potassium compounds, that would go into cells and displace sodium. Cancer in general has a fermentation metabolism that loves sodium and needs little oxygen. The therapy gets blood and potassium in there, as well as the carotenoids and other things that stop the cancer or slow it down. Another key factor is the juices must be very fresh, to not destroy the oxidizing enzymes (your body also oxidizes germs with hydrogen peroxide mfg by immune cells); in fact intravenous hyd peroxide is very effective with cancer supposedly, as well as emphyesema- provides oxygen to cells. Also a juice press is needed, not centrifugal, which strips off the charge on the juice, making it ineffective at getting into the cells. Gerson also talks about studies that measured the electrical potential of organs and how they diminished with poisons. This is still an unexplored area I think. Dr. Albert Schweitzer called Gerson an eminent genius, as he renewed Schweitzer's life who went on to do his best work.Read more ›

Read this book (and the Gerson Therapy) if you want to heal yourself actively. This book will help you become an active participant in your own healing, that means more control over your life, and disease. Our bodies can fight cancer if we help our immune system, and detoxify our bodies.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer of the soft tissue (low back area), and Non-hodgkin's lymphoma 2 years ago. She didnt seek medical advice thinking it was just low back pain until the pain became unbearable. The cancer has already spread to her bones and other parts of her low back compressing her kidney, and blood vessels and nerves to her leg. She started doing chemotherapy but whe is too weak to handle it all. It made her very sick, and she felt that the chemo will kill her before the cancer does so she decided not to finish the chemo program. She searched for an alternative and found Gerson therapy.
My mom is alive and well. In fact she is back doing her business and practicing her profession. Her MRI showed that her cancer had shrunk and stopped growing. She's gained weight, and got her life back.
Another lady was diagnosed with Non-hodgkins lymphoma about the same time my mother was diagnosed, that lady had expired after just a few months (she didnt know about Gerson's therapy).
I'm so happy that my mom is alive! She is commited to doing the Gerson Therapy which saved her life.
I'm sorry if I talked more about my mother that the book. This is because she is living proof that Gerson Therapy really works.
This book is a must read if you want to cure yourself or a loved one.

If you do, READ THIS BOOK! A friend of mine who hasfibromyalgia introduced me to Dr. Gerson's book. I also havefibromyalgia. Ten months ago, I thought I was going to die. I was sosick that I couldn't work, I could barely take care of myself and Ihad to give away most of my possessions to move half way across thecountry to stay with family. Now, I'm feeling much better and my lifehas improved dramatically. Much of my progress stems from the thingsI learned from this book as well as my WILLINGNESS to implement them.I highly recommend this book!...

I In mid 1998 I was diagonised with prostate cancer and after much research decided to start with the Gerson therapy. I began at a hosipatal that applied the therapy and followed the advise of the doctor throuout the prpgram I did not use any conventional or mainstream treatments.

In 6 months the tumor began to shrink and was gone in about 1 1/2 years. I stayed on the program for a total of 3 years and now follow a maintenance program. It is important to do the complete program and not do just part of it as imbalances could occur.

Format: Paperback
Well, many things saved my life... But this book was most instrumental. When nothing else seemed to help, following the recipes and guide with care did the trick.

I still love Hippocrates soup - I even blogged my modern recipe version for all to use. Hippocrates used this soup for his patients. Something about the miracle of leeks, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, and celery root all together.


Gerson goes into detail about how cancer patients react adversely to foods encased in plastic.

In those days, perhaps the plastic was worse then than it is today. But whether a person survived or didn't during treatment depended upon their food exposure to plastic.

He also eliminated salt and increased potassium intake. I love salt. But every time I have it, I wonder... should I not use this stuff?

I use the unheated rock salt from Utah. Just a little.

Whenever I'm sick, or even whenever my dog or cat is sick, I make Hippocrates Soup and Smoosh. (Instead of full juicing which is alot of work). And yes, they do get better. We get better.

This is, of course, my own personal experience.

So let me just say, this book is one of the best ever in the whole world. : )

There are more modern adaptations, but this is the original that I always turn to.

Max Gerson was a miracle worker, and even the great Dr. Albert Schweitzer loved him and what he accomplished.

Buy this book... it may change your life like it did mine.
