I would not trade the knowledge gained from this book for all the money in the world!

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.
A book by Beata Bishop called A Time to Heal is also a highly recommended book giving a personal account of this therapy, and has been translated into seven different languages at the time of writing this review.
I recommend reading the book for yourself, watching the DVDs, and then making up your own mind, but don't let anyone else make your mind up for you, and especially don't listen to so-called medical 'experts' who, in trying to back up their claims against this therapy, only show their complete ignorance of it! If you've read the book and familiarized yourself with this highly effective form of therapy, that has actually been curing people for many, many years - including people for whom mainstream conventional doctors have sent home to die - it's a lot easier to spot people who don't know the first thing about it who claim that they do. Please, if you're going to debunk this therapy, at least demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of it. It's surprising how many of its critics cannot do this! Oh, and also explain the many people who have been cured from so-called 'terminal' illness by it.
In conventional medicine, if someone has 'recovered' from cancer and has been in remission for several months, or a year, or two years, this is apparently 'cured', or 'in remission'. In contrast, as a result of the Gerson Therapy, you will find many case studies of people cured from cancer who have outlived it by twenty years, and more! Now that's what I call cured.
They do not claim to be able to cure everything and everyone, but the results sure are a hell of a lot better than things like chemotherapy, which does a hell of a lot of damage to an already sick body. (In a recent poll I read, 75% of doctors said they would not have chemotherapy themselves! Thankfully, there is an alternative - this book.)
