Editorial Reviews

In DYING TO HAVE KNOWN, filmmaker Steve Kroschel goes on a 52-day journey to find evidence supporting the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy -- a long-suppressed natural cancer cure. His travels take him from Alaska to Mexico with stops in San Diego, New York, Japan, Holland and Spain. In the end, he presents the testimonies of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the therapy s efficacy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and presents the hard scientific proof to back up their claims. Testimonies include: a Japanese medical school professor who cured himself of liver cancer over 15 years ago, a lymphoma patient who was diagnosed as terminal over 50 years ago as well as from noted critics of this world-renowned healing method who dismiss it out of hand as pure quackery. So the question that remains is, Why is this powerful curative therapy still suppressed, more than 75 years after it was clearly proven to cure degenerative diseases? The viewers are left to decide for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent February 6, 2009
By Karen M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a really powerful movie. Very well done. It explores the Gerson therapy and the narrator interviews many conventional doctors as well. I went right home and juiced a carrot/apple/greens drink! He makes an excellent case for food based health care as opposed to the traditional chemical based health care that we have in this country. I did not want the movie to end, it was so enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars empowering! February 17, 2009
This is a powerful film that documents the underlying reasons why the medical establishment ONLY pushes drugs, chemotherapy and radiation for the treatment of cancer and not only dismisses alternative healing but the medical insurance companies won't even cover alternative therapy. The reason? There's no MONEY in treatments that actually eradicate disease! There's simply too much money to be made in the cancer industry! This is a chilling reminder that ignorance is not bliss! The American Medical Association and the National Cancer Society are merely organizations to ensure that the truth doesn't get out! They are in place to CAPITALIZE on the cancer BUSINESS! Truly a life changing film! I prepared myself a fresh fruit smoothie after watching it!

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST See T.V. March 15, 2010
Like the other reviewers I have started vegetable juicing since watching this movie. So the movie is convincing and informative enough to cause a change in lifestyle just by watching for 1 1/2. That's pretty impressive. I have been interested in "alternative" health information for 20+ years but had never directly learned about Max Gerson and his work. In hindsight I am incredulous that such an important and exhaustive body of work has eluded me. This DVD along with it's 'companion' piece "A Beautiful Truth" presents the story quickly and well. Well or Sick, EVERYONE SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFETIME. Now is better than later. As an aside, A Beautiful Truth and Dying To Have Known both appear to have been produced by the same people and at the same time and either one can present the story. Each has some unique information and some similar/overlap.

1.0 out of 5 stars infomercial alert!!! January 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Ok, I assume I'm going to get ripped for this review but here goes.

The entire movie is basically one testimonial after another. My wife and I kept waiting for the "data" to be presented. It never came. We watched a parade of people telling us how great the Gerson Therapy is and at the end we still had no idea what the Gerson Therapy was.

We got the impression that if we sent $39.99 somewhere we could find out.

You get just enough info to ascertain it's a juice and coffee enema diet. I guess I don't need to know why puffing organic coffee up my butt is good for me or not.

Never mind if the info presented is correct, never mind if it cures cancer or anything else because the info just isn't there. You do get tidbits of info such as over half the patients at a clinic in Japan are either cured or in remission after following the Gerson Therapy. This statistic is meaningless when you don't put it in some sort of context.

For example:

1. How many patients are cured?

2. How many are cured vs in remission?

3. What standard was used to determine "cured"?

4. What standard was used to determine "in remission"?

5. What sort of confounding variables might be at play? I assume this regimen restricts calories, processed foods and by extension sugar intake. Since cancer cells lose the ability to reproduce aerobically and rely on anaerobic activity to reproduce, one could logically form the hypothesis that would allow you to ask the question, was this a confounding variable. Many others could also be raised.

In fact, according to "Overview of the Gerson Regimen". Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. March 18, 2009. Updated April 22, 2009.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Revealing Documentary May 27, 2008
What an excellent investigative video! It's nice to see someone actually go out and get the whole story regarding healing cancer nutritionally, as is exemplified by the pioneering Gerson therapy, rather than just take a side and ignore the facts. And what Kroschel reveals, slowly but surely as he he travels throughout the world, is that cancer, and just about all other ills, can be healed with the proper diet, which includes juicing, etc.

Top proponents as well as top opponents to nutritional therapy are interviewed; very fair interviews which more often than not leave the opponents looking embarrassingly biased and close-minded, and rightly so. And it appears that most of the bias occurs right here in the USA. Spain is very open to the Gerson therapy, and Japan's top doctors are now starting to use the Gerson nutritional therapy in various hospitals to cure cancers, with outstanding results!

What an indictment of the blindness of the US medical establishment that it may take the success of the nutritional approach in other nations in curing mankind's health problems to finally force our nation's health care system to reluctantly do what they should have done all along: use whatever approach to curing disease that works, no matter how much profit is to be made, or how much "eating crow" may be involved. Health is more important than wealth every time!
