Gerson Therapy as an Alternative Therapy


Gerson sucuri-naturaleGerson Therapy is an Alternative Therapy diet, which means it is used instead of conventional treatment for cancer.

Gerson Therapy involves a very specific diet with nutritional supplements, and is aimed at ridding the body of toxins and strengthening the body’s immune system.

Gerson Therapy is based on the role of minerals, enzymes, and other dietary factors, and has been used by some individuals to treat cancer and other conditions.

With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s ability to heal itself – with no damaging side effects. This powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system and has been used to treat cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases.

Gerson Therapy consists of 3 key parts:

  • Detoxification: Treatments, including enemas, to remove toxic (harmful) substances from the body.
  • Diet: Organic fruits, vegetables, and whole grains to give the body plenty of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutrients. The fruits and vegetables are low in sodium (salt) and high in potassium.
  • Supplementation: The addition of certain substances to the diet to help correct cell metabolism (the chemical changes that take place in a cell to make energy and basic materials needed for the body’s life processes).

Chris Wark interviews Dr. Patrick Vickers of Northern Baja Gerson Center about Dr. Max Gerson and The Gerson Therapy for cancer.

The Gerson therapy was named after Dr Max B. Gerson (1881-1959), who first used it to treat his migraine headaches.

Dr. Gerson’s therapy became known to the public as a treatment for a type of tuberculosis (TB) in the 1930s, and it has since been used to treat other conditions as well, including cancer.

The Gerson Therapy premises that cancer develops when there are changes in cell metabolism because of the build-up of toxic substances in the body.

According to Dr. Gerson, the disease process makes more toxins and the liver becomes overworked; he also believed that people with cancer also have too little potassium and too much sodium in the cells in their bodies, resulting in tissue damage and weakened organs.

Gerson Therapy aims to restore the body to health by repairing the liver and returning the metabolism to its normal state.

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
