    Making the Right Choice for Your Treatment

    When you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment, choosing the best strategy

    can be a bewildering task. No treatment works forevery person every time.

    Most conventional therapies, and even many alter-native therapies, treat only the individual symptomswhile ignoring what is ultimately causing the disease.

    The Gerson therapy is effective with so many differ-ent ailments because it restores the bodys incredibleability to heal itself, with no damaging side effects.Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particulardisease, it treats the underlying cause of the disease.

    Heal ing Your Body w ith the

    Gerson Therapy

    The Gerson Therapy uses a whole-body approach tohealing that boosts your bodys own immune system andother defenses to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease andallergies, as well as many other chronic conditions.

    Metabolism is stimulated through the addition of natu-ral thyroid hormone, potassium and other supplements, andby avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium andother toxins.

    With generous, high-quality nutrients, increased oxygenavailability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, thecells, and thus the body, can regenerate, become healthyand prevent future illness.

    The Gerson Therapy regenerates the bodyby flooding it with nutrients from almost 20pounds of organic fruits and vegetables daily,most of which is used to make fresh raw juice,one glass every hour, 10 to 13 times a day.

    Dr. Gersons research indicates that it isimperative for cancer patients to have a two-step juicer with a separate grinder and hydraulicpress. One-step juicers generally do not producethe same quality of enzyme, mineral or micro-

    nutrient content.In fact, some patients have failed to experi-

    ence results simply by using the wrong juicer. Wedo not recommend the use of any masticatingor centrifugal-type juicers for the GersonTherapy.


    The Gerson diet is naturally high in many vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micro-nutrients,while low in sodium and fats. It is also rich in fluids. The following are the typical daily foods for aGerson patient:

    Three full vegetarian meals, freshlyprepared from organically grownvegetables and whole grains.

    10-13 glasses of two types of fresh raw

    juice: a green leaf/apple juice blend anda carrot/apple juice blend.

    A typical meal will include salad, cooked

    vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetablesoup, fruit and juice.

    Breakfast includes oatmeal, fruit and

    orange juice.

    Fresh fruits and vegetables are alsoallowed for snacking.

    DetoxificationDegenerative diseases render

    the body increasingly unable toexcrete waste materials adequately.

    The Gerson Therapy uses intensivedetoxification to eliminate wastes,regenerate the liver, reactivate theimmune system and restore enzyme,mineral and hormone systems.

    Coffee enemas help the liverto detoxify the tissues and blood.Patients report that the enemas decrease pain and hasten healing. The scientificbasis for the use of coffee enemas is well documented and can be obtained fromthe Gerson Institute. Enzyme systems of the gut wall and liver are stimulated, andbile flow is increased. Castor oil is used as an additional stimulant of bile flow. This

    enhances the bodys ability to eliminate toxic residues accumulated from theenvironment, chemotherapy and other sources.

    Detoxification also helps to more rapidly eliminate tumors and other deadtissue after they are broken down by the body. In addition, digestive enzymesserve to enhance the absorption of nutrients and assist in the elimination of dam-aged tissue.

    Because the body is working so hard to detoxifyand heal, people on the Gerson Therapy need a greatdeal of rest. It is especially important at this time to listen toyour body. If patients overexert themselves, it can under-mine the healing process. Rest and more rest are essential.

At first some of her familymembers thought it was a foolish idea, but after seeing the results theycame to support Irene and the therapy completely.

    In 1997, Irene visited the Gerson Clinic for two weeks. She did thestrict diet prescribed by Gerson doctors without wavering (13 juices per

    day and coffee enemas) for two-and-a-half years.

    In June 2001 Irene revisited Gerson doctors for a check-up and all the tumor markers werenormal. A PET Scan showed her clear of any melanoma. Twelve years after beginning the TherapyIrene feels fine and still continues eating healthy and only organic food.
