Product Description

There is a split right down the middle of modern medicine. One half, boosted by dazzling high technology, shows brilliant results in handling acute diseases and emergencies. The other half, dealing with chronic degenerative conditions, is lagging behind, unable to offer more than symptomatic treatment for the most widespread distressing conditions ranging from cancer, heart disease and hypertension to diabetes, arthritis and morbid obesity. It is assumed that these and other "diseases of modern civilization" are both inevitable and incurable. Healing the Gerson Way: Defeating Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases contradicts all such assumptions. As a complete guide to the theory and practice of the Gerson Therapy, developed over 80 years ago by Dr. Max Gerson, MD (1881-1959), it shows that the increasingly denatured, nutritionally empty, toxic modern diet is the main cause of today's worsening health crisis. This book offers the solution in the form of a brilliant, precision-built nutritional program that eliminates the underlying causes of disease, leading to lasting cures. This program is best known for its success in curing many types of cancer, but it also has an excellent track record with a large number of other degenerative conditions.

Format: Paperback
When a book is this useful and valuable, it's hard to find words to describe it, or that do it justice. There are already many reviews of this book on the Amazon US site, www.amazon.com, so I won't repeat what is already there, other than to say the testimonials of those who have read it on that site undoubtedly speak for themselves. I found it very easy to read, hugely informative, backed up by scientific evidence that makes sense, and I think it is criminal that it is kept out of mainstream medicine, although it is easy to see why this occurs as it is a huge threat to the pharmaceutical companies.

I also highly recommend the DVDs, Dying to Have Known, The Gerson Miracle, and although I have not seen it yet, The Beautiful Truth is apparently also very good. There are trailers for these on the Internet if you do a Google search. They all relate directly to this book, and are all available from The Gerson Institute and other outlets.

This book makes some aspects of conventional medicine look like quackery, but it does not mean that this book is not based on sound medical expertise. It is, and this is evident in the content, the history of the Gerson Therapy - Nobel Prize and former Gerson patient Albert Schweitzer, M.D. quoted, "I see in Dr. Gerson one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine" - and more recently, highly respected medical doctors around the world who are replicating the success of the Gerson Therapy in long-term studies. For example, Dr. Takaho Watayo, recently appointed to the post of Professor of Clinical Medicine at Chiba Medical School, in addition to being one of Japan's most prominent surgeons and Subdirector of the Ohtsuna Hospital in Tokyo.

Format: Paperback
bought this book on the recommendation of Andrew W. Saul.

I'm glad I bought it and I feel I have come away from reading it with some useful information, although I have found out that I am too ill and do not have the financial resources to follow the program fully.

(Like many people with severe M.E. any type of overexertion makes the disease worse, and this would include drinking juices hourly and having to interact with the juice bringer hourly, plus the enormous input and overexertion etc. in a weekly enema would be impossible, let alone 3 or more a day. The juices would also be far too high in carbohydrate for many of us, and we would feel more ill still from avoiding protein - as would others with mitochondrial diseases.)

However, I have bought the best quality juicer I could afford (NOT the $3000 one recommended!) and have been using it a lot, and have boosted the amount of vegetables I eat each day considerably too. I plan to do maybe 30% of the program. The book actually warns against this, and says that the program must be followed 100% to work. But you can only do what you can do I guess and it all helps, so I still have my little ember of hope and this program is part of that, although I'm also dong several other equally important things (a full orthomolecular program including high-dose vit C etc.).

One would have to be VERY VERY wealthy to follow this program fully incidentally. Expenses include a full-time carer for 12 hours a day to juice and do food prep and enemas (this cannot be done by the patient), a one-off expense of $3000 for a juicer (and no that third zero isn't a typo!) plus the cost of 8-10 kg or so of all organic fruits and veg each DAY, plus the costs involved in 3 daily coffee enemas.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought as a last resort when the doctors gave me up for dead, Followed the diet and avoided the toxins suggested I also bought The recommended Norwalk juicer (very expensive but industrial quality), within a week my previous drug controlled Hyper tension was cured and my blood pressure remains more or less perfect round the 120/80 or thereabouts. That was a bonus, the diet is not easy to fully adopt but when you've got no alternative you should be able to and when you really look at what Gerson is suggesting it begins to make good sense. My hopeless prognosis has now been re-assessed and I'm receiving chemo therapy which Gerson is against but my wife and I are convinced that Gerson's recommendations which we adopted 100% worked. Worth reading even if you just want a healthier lifestyle.

if you have any disease, this is a proven method with a long 50 year success method, of common sense NUTRITION, but in the form of juices search youtube, loads of evidence don t miss reading this book if you even have terminal pancreatic cancer or melanoma, read about dr max gerson and how he rolled out his cure for his own ill health and discovered how he started curing many many diseases with his protocol, he has now died and his daughter charlotte carries on with his work, BECAUSE IT WORKS<.
