2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment
If you are expecting a step-by-step guide to doing Gerson, then forget this book. It is wordy, boring, repetitive, contradictory, disorganised, chaotic and a thinly veiled eulogy of Dr. Gerson by an adoring daughter. It does not contain precise instructions for the juice ingredients, which ones to take when, what the diet should be in conjunction with the juicing and...

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a book that finally makes sense in dealing with diseases., 27 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
I have thoroughly read this book from the beginning to the end and its just brilliant.
Max gerson was just brilliant in his studies in dealing with cancers and other life threatening diseases. He explains that Food is the main key to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

Using Coffee anemias to remove toxins from the intestines to help the body/liver to detoxify so that this will finally boost the immune system to help fight diseases. Also, using pancreatic enzymes, whilst also drinking around 13 servings of vegetable and fruit juices per day, for the first 3 months of life WILL or mostly cure you of most diseases.

Max Gerson also explains what and how Cancer can come about.
Environmental factors, pollutions, bacteria, viruses and other multifactorial factors lower the immune system so that Cancer will spread, whilst cancer cells have more sugar receptor sites on their cell walls so that they are the first to mop-up the glucose molecules and grow their own blood vessels and finally grow/travel to other parts of the body.

My opinion is that Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are NOT the cure for Cancer, as they actually lower the immune system and kill other cells in the body. Alternative medicine (Foods) should be taken more seriously in persons with diseases. More studies like Max Gersons should be done and so drug companies should spend more money on prevention and not the cure, whilst not using certain drugs to cure diseases. Another book worth reading is also the book about the CHINA STUDY.

John from Malta

I respect Max gerson and wished I had meet him in person. We should not forget the work he had conducted and he should be honoured for his achievements.

Those reading this article should take it seriously and take at least 400g or 5-6 portions of Fruit and vegetables per day to remove toxins in your body to fight off disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your health - Not for the fainthearted, 21 Aug 2009
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
The Gerson Therapy by C. Gerson and M. Walker.

Unless you are very serious about improving your own health, the Gerson Therapy will strike you as wierd and extreme.

Modern Medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have done a good job trying to convince us that disease is about germs, and only they can help.

The fact is that you are responsible for your own health, and that sound nutrition and avoidance of environmental toxins (including all the products of the petrochemical, 'nutraceutical' (sic) and pharmaceutical industries) are essential if you wish to avoid the degenerative conditions which have increasingly afflicted mankind in the last decades.

You can't just blame the germs/viruses/prions or your genes and wait for a pill or shot from your doctor to make it all better, while eating junk and polluting your body.

This book is extreme. It has to be, because cancer represents an extreme failure of the body to identify and destroy cancer cells.

The book tells you how to give your body an extreme amount of nutritional support. In answer to the question, "How can I make sure I get all the nutrition I need to get better" the answer is "Organic fruit and vegetable juices" and a few supplements. All of this is explained in the book.

Then there is the problem of the 'cranky' coffee enemas. Unless you understand that the body has to be supported during extreme detoxification, and the liver particularly, you will baulk at coffee enemas. The fact is, if the body is too debilitated to stop cancer cells from growing, it isn't going to be up to detoxifying the waste products from the breakdown of a tumour without poisoning the liver, the major organ of detoxification.

Even if you did kill all the cancer cells in your body, if you couldn't metabolise and excrete the waste products of the breakdown, it would poison your liver and kill you.

Again this book explains the why and how of detoxification with coffee enemas.

If anyone pretends it is easy, or there is a quick fix, they are lying. It takes months of dedicated application.

Sound nutrition and detoxification. If you are up for it, this book will help you.

The Gerson Therapy is a whole and must be taken as a whole, it isn't a 'pick and mix' where you just take the bits you want, it is an entire metabolic program to support your body to the point where it starts to break down the cancer by itself.

Seeing that such a high percentage of us will be afflicted by cancer some time in our lives, it behoves us to understand the issues and take preventative steps. If you, or someone close to you already have cancer, this book will provide you with an alternative to the modern cut, poison, burn and dope approach. If you have seen loved ones cut up, poisoned by chemo and eventually killed by opiates and malnutrition, it doesn't seem that extreme or cranky.

In this context this book has provided a very useful service in making available the information necessary to make an informed choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of great detail, 23 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
If you're looking for what to do on the Gerson Therapy then this book is a must. However, I am still looking into alternatives as I feel this book lacks scientific reasoning for the low protein and low fat recommended. Even in discussions with the Gerson Institute my questions on this are still not answered scientifically. If you are like me and need a lot of scientific explanations for why this therapy works then you may be disappointed. If you want to read success stories and follow the Gerson protocol then this is a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunnigly simple, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
this information is so obvious and so simple and natural it will embarrass the whole medical profession,why have even your g.p not heard of this,obviously big pharma is a criminal organization that controls the whole medical and sickness industry and governments.this is not just for cancer and chronic illness but the info and basics of the diet should be included in everyones health regime to prevent disease.proves germ theory is unscientific and "soil theory" of antoine beauchamp is more correct and scientific.your health is in your hands not the medical profession

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Purchased on 11/10/2011), 12 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
The least I can do in grateful thanks to the authors of this book, and to Amazon, is to consent to review my purchase of this book.

A jolly good read, it is.

The book is an eye-opener, and is invaluable in one's library. It's a detailed discussion of why and how we get sick and how to repair and restore the working body to its normal state. Whilst it answers almost all chronic diseases, the one question still remaining is how to tackle kidney damage as a result of diabetes.

On the matter of knowing the total price of an item, before having to fill out all one's details and then being told shipping costs, Amazon provided free shipping.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment, 4 Dec 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
If you are expecting a step-by-step guide to doing Gerson, then forget this book. It is wordy, boring, repetitive, contradictory, disorganised, chaotic and a thinly veiled eulogy of Dr. Gerson by an adoring daughter. It does not contain precise instructions for the juice ingredients, which ones to take when, what the diet should be in conjunction with the juicing and enemas. There is plenty of diet information and strictures on what not to do but it is generalised and, each time it crops up in the book, may not agree with the previous version. One is left feeling quite bewildered, confused and almost helpless! I say again, what a disappointment. I will buy the other Gerson books and report back

5.0 out of 5 stars New way of thinking, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
Being a big believer that we waste money giving to cancer charities, I'm a big believer That diet plays a big part in a healthy life style, there has been a cure for cancer for years and the government won't release it, in my opinion don't waste any more money giving to the money making business that is cancer charities, and get this book to help with a healthy life style to help prevent cancer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for anyone suffering ill health, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gerson Therapy: the Proven Nutritional Program for Cancer and Other Illnesses (Paperback)
Anyone who has seen 'A Beautiful Truth' or 'Dying to have known' will recognise truth when they see it. Charlotte Gerson is clearly passionate about her father's work, understandably, considering the countless lives his pioneering methods have changed for the better. These methods are not the easy route, but they work. I have never understood the thinking behind chemotherapy, which is designed to deliberately poison the body which is trying to fight off a serious illness. It is indeed a testimony to the wonderful human body that anyone does survive such an onslaught.
Our bodies are designed to function in health and, if given the correct amount of nutrients to do so, will serve us well, but so many people these days seem to think they can eat total junk and get away with it - and these people are usually the ones to cry "why me?" when the inevitable happens.
It's not surprising that there are so many overweight people now. Despite consuming vast quantities of food, these people are starving to death. The human body craves nutrition to maintain health, but the average western diet affords very little in the way of nutrients.
