Healing the Gerson Way: Defeating Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases

Reviewed by Andrew W. Saul in J Orthomolecular Med, 2007. Vol 22, No 4, p 217-218.

If I were asked to choose the most valuable two pages of any medical book ever written, I would not hesitate to nominate pages 196-197 of Healing the Gerson Way. They present a very concise listing of the full Gerson nutritional therapy as an "Hourly Schedule for Typical Cancer Patients." These two pages deserve to be (and may already be) among the most photocopied-and-shared documents in alternative medicine. Authors Charlotte Gerson and Beata Bishop also provide additional, modified treatment schedule tables: one for patients who are severely weakened and/or on chemotherapy, and another for nonmalignant patients.

Any preconceptions that the seven-decades-old Gerson approach may be outmoded or inflexible will be put to rest in the second chapter. Long-time students of Gerson will appreciate new additions to the therapy, such as chromium, selenium, and pau d'arco. Chapters 5 and 6, supported by 175 references, discuss how chronic disease is primarily caused by what we do to ourselves. The remainder of the book tells you exactly what you can do about it, with sections on "Restoring the Body's Defenses," "Why Does the Gerson Therapy Work," "Pain Control Without Drugs," and "Preparing Food and Juices - The Basic Rules."

It would not be Gerson book without a chapter on coffee enemas. The coffee enema is probably the most controversial, most misunderstood, and, perhaps, most memorable Gerson technique of all. Its purposes are detoxification, liver cleansing, and pain relief. Chapters also explain recommended laboratory tests and discuss non-pharmaceutical medications.

This book outlines in detail the exact protocol used at the famed Gerson clinic in Mexico. The key centerpiece of the treatment is a vegetarian diet with no dairy, no soy and no fried foods. This alone cures loads of problems as long as you emphasize organic foods, juicing and proper food combining. The book goes into much greater detail and covers all the nuances of the treatment. It's well worth the money. The basic diet guidelines eliminate 95% of health problems like migraines, allergies, obesity, acne, depression and you name it. This is the reason why Dr Max Gerson was given such a hard time. He would have put hospitals out of business if he was allowed to continue.

My husband and I just purchased this book and have been implementing it's ideas slowly. Which is a good thing, and I highly recommend that you do as well. Do not attempt to do everything all at once.

We thought my husband had a severe reaction to taking one 325mg capsule of Pancreatin (digestive enzymes: Protease, Amylase, and Lipase), this was his first time ever taking this supplement. However, he did not. It ended up only being the niacin flush. The niacin flush can behave much like an allergic reaction. We are very glad it was only the niacin. Although after some research online there have been many cases of people who are in fact allergic to Pancreatin!!! Unfortunately in the book it never says that this type of allergic reaction is a possibility. It only says that "Some patients cannot tolerate Pancreatin and have to do without it." If you are considering trying this plan for healing cancer, or simply for overall health (like us), then I highly recommend that you start adding things slowly (one at a time). Even as simple as adding foods you may have never had before. Just to make sure there are no allergies to these things.

Also be cautious with the enemas. Electrolytes can be thrown off balance quite easily with laxatives and enemas, etc. The body is very very strict about electrolyte balance. Also do remember that foods such as tomatoes are naturally higher in sodium (which are included in the "special soup" on the Gerson plan), so you will be getting sodium on this meal plan. It is very important to be getting all of the juices and potassium when doing the enemas. Check out wikipedia for more information on electrolyte homeostasis.

Also...be gentle when inserting the tube. If the tube is poking you and it is painful stop and try to reposition.

This is the most comprehensible book on Gerson Therapy to date. Well worth a read for anyone suffering from degenerative diseases. Even better if they are willing to look the medical establishment in the eye and say, "No Thanks, I'd rather do it myself" A very powerful healing method that relies upon food, not prescriptions, and truly cures, as opposed to treating the symptoms. Diabetes, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and cancer are symptoms of a suppressed immune system. This therapy will kick start your immune system, start the healing reaction and cure what ails you. It has done an incredible job of clearing me of all the above symptoms.

Although this book is pricey, I strongly suggest it if you are debating buying it. It is FULL
of awesome advice, recipes and information to help yourself and your family.

This book is a real eye opener for many americans. We are getting to far from mother nature and the
healing food can give us naturally. Many of us put all of our control into the hands of doctors/pills
instead of educating and helping ourselves.

For any of you who have netflix online, they have some Gerson videos to watch for free,
well worth it.

Enjoy a healthy life while you have it!
