BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Gerson Diet is an alternative kind of diet therapy that claims to cure cancer and other chronic and degenerative diseases. Created by Max Gerson, a German physician, the Gerson Diet is a controversial eating plan that involves consuming a variety of raw vegetables in addition to performing castor oil and coffee enemas, administering hydrogen peroxide or the chemical ozone rectally and taking specific supplements.

While Gerson claimed to have assisted 50 cases cured from cancer and then went on to establish the Gerson Institute, his cases have been strongly rejected by the medical community, including the National Cancer Institute, for its unsubstantiated evidence. In addition, many people who followed the Gerson Diet became sick due to treatments and/or infected treatment intrustments.

I can't believe that still at this time and age there are people publishing against a therapy that can only help. This type of comments instead of helping, hurts humanity. The Gerson Therapy REALLY works.

With Billions pouring out of the sick and trying hard to keep them sick, no wonder that one of the FDA' sycophant will try to ruin the reputation of the Gerson Therapy; sorry pal, it works, period!

I have nothing but absolute praise for Gerson therapy! My daughter was seriously ill with a bone marrow condition which appeared to be cancer related. Her recovery on this diet was miraculously fast, the turn around within weeks not months/years. I got the diet recommended by a friend who cured himself of a chronic infection, and his partner from Limes disease using Gerson.
Don't believe this review, you should check this therapy out. It works!!

Thanks Seabuckthorn for the recepies. I loved "A Beautiful Truth" too. The article above is too much to swalow. What could possibly be wrong with vegetable juices? It is a common knowledge that they are very healthy.

A couple of things: First, I'm not sure if the diet is completely vegan - I think it depends on the custom diet created for each individual. I worked for a year preparing juice and meals for a Gerson Therapy adherent, and she was allowed goat's milk. Second, for anyone who's interested in Gerson Therapy recipes, I just posted several that I created while cooking the diet on my blog: http://www.seabuckthorn.net/index.php/?p=145 I hope that interested readers enjoy.
