Product Description

In 'The Beautiful Truth,' a 15 year old boy goes on a mission to determine whether or not what Dr. Max Gerson's wrote in his controversial book is a legitimate, alternative cure for cancer. After numerous interviews with doctors, skeptics, members of Gerson's family and cancer patients, it became abundantly clear that a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic diseases does exist - and it has existed for over 80 years.

It has been said that more people live off cancer than die from it. The Beautiful Truth is a movie that can put a stop to this travesty. Here is a very practical guide to the intensive nutritional treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases that many would consider to have been impossible to obtain. But thanks to the work of Max Gerson, M.D., and his daughter, Charlotte Gerson, this knowledge is readily available.

Max Gerson cured cancer. He did so with a strict fat-free, salt-free, low-protein, essentially vegetarian dietary regimen, based on great quantities of fresh vegetable juice, supplements, and systemic detoxification. Ms. Gerson explains:

"Dr. Gerson found that the underlying problems of all cancer patients are toxicity and deficiency. He had to overcome both these difficulties. He found that one of the important features of his therapy had to be the hourly administration of fresh vegetable juices. These supply ample nutrients, as well as fluids to help flush out the kidneys. When the high levels of nutrients re-enter tissues, toxins accumulated over many years are forced into the blood stream. The toxins are then filtered out by the liver. The liver is easily overburdened by the continuous release of toxins and is unable to release the load. Dr. Gerson found that he could provide help to the liver by the caffeine in coffee, absorbed from the colon via the hemorrhoidal vein, which carries the caffeine to the portal system and then to the liver. The caffeine stimulates the liver/bile ducts to open, releasing the poisons into the intestinal tract for excretion."

Some of the blunt, uncompromising statements this movie makes are certain to get up the medical profession's collective nose. Too bad for them, for Dr. Gerson was right.

This documentary reveals a simple truth to healing ourselves. You are what you eat...eat to live...food is the best medicine...all of these well-known conepts, when put into practice, really work! I have a relative who was cured of cancer through the Gerson Therapy in Mexico. She is in her ninties now!

thanks Garrett!

Dr. Max Gerson saved my life. PLEASE WATCH THIS MOVIE. IT could save the life of someone you know or may know in the future. The Gerson Therapy is saving people from having their testicles, eyes, prostates, removed and discarded. And after all that the patient still has a severe metabolic breakdown, and just maybe they'll throw in a little chemical cocktail for an expensive, sickening finish. PLEASE BUY THIS MOVIE! For the sick and the suffering. This movie will change your life if you let it. TOO ALL THE DR. GERSON HATERS>>> TOO BAD COMMON SENSE ISN't COMMON. I personally know many cases of true wellness caused by the content of this Movie. Thank you for reading.

This is a beautiful DVD! The main feature is very good and illuminating. However the bonus feature titled: "The Gerson Therapy: A director's Perspective" -- is simply THE BEST!!! Just for the bonus feature alone, this DVD is worth its weight in diamonds. I don't believe there is another testimonial in the entire world that can make a believer out of everyone like those shown in the bonus feature will!

How come the US Congress has not set up a investigation committee at the highest levels of government to understand why alternate approaches, of which Max Gerson's is one such, are so effective where modern medicine has failed completely? How come the Gerson approach is able to heal terminally ill cancer patients, with life expectancies in weeks, when modern medicine had sent them home to die? Why is Gerson's approach so successful using non-invasive and non-barbaric procedrues in contrast to modern medicine? How come these terminally ill people are alive decades later looking vibrant and full of life, with absolutely no signs of mutilation? Why are these success stories not broadcast 24/7 on cable TV networks? When was the last time you watched someone who had been mutilated, nuked, chemo-ed etc come forth with accolades for the treatment they underwent? There are many such questions that need to be answered.

However, like in every such case where the truth stands out but the answers are not forthcoming, one need only follow the money trail. The US Congress and the regulatory agencies -- USDA and FDA, are in the back pockets of Big Pharma and the AMA. Its so simple! The "big guys" in the USDA and FDA are mostly former executives of Bigh Pharma or the multinational agribusiness. So its a "old boys" network between them with revolving doors.

In the end, the narrator recommends a vegan diet, even though in the beginning of the film there were positive comments about nutrition researcher Weston A. Price.

Price studied healthy isolated native cultures throughout the world and found that they all ate meat or raw dairy foods. In addition, the original Gerson Therapy utilized raw liver juice. Price's natives also ate copious amounts of organ meats, which contain large amounts of vitamin A, folic acid and the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.

My son-in law told me about this juicing documentry that I should watch, which was Fat, sick and nearly dead. I have Netflix but there was a very long wait so I started looking at other documentries and found Forks over knifes. My husband and I watched and I don't know what happened but everything changed about our eating habits NO meat,cheese,eggs. Now were about 2 weeks into this and I find THE BEAUTIFUL TRUTH DVD with DYING TO KNOW and THE GERSON MIRACLE OMG!! This documentry made me and my husband cry so much because we lost his mother a year ago to pancreatic cancer. We have never heard anything about this before. It sickens us both now how naive we were about what we were putting into our mouths. I have been buying every book about nutrition that I can get my hands on. Found the book The whole truth about soy there's another OMG!! I ate soy like it was candy...what has become of our Goverment to let us eat things that our body's were not meant to digest. Just found out about GMO' another OMG!! I'am now trying to heal my Mother, Aunt and all loved ones of their aliments. The journey will continue!!!
