hi neesiex, The Gerson Therapy is a safe, natural treatment developed by Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920’s that uses organic foods, juicing, coffee enemas, detoxification and natural supplements to activate the body’s ability to heal itself. According to the Gerson Institute, “Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis."
Gerson Therapy involves 3 important steps that have to be performed simultaneously. The first step is detoxification by coffee enemas. The second step is the Gerson Diet that supplies the essential nutrients including enzymes from 13 glasses daily of fresh vegetable and fruit juice. The third step is the supplement of deficient nutrients, particularly potassium, iodine, and thyroid hormones. Additional supplements are used that include niacin, pancreatin, flaxseed oil, castor oil, coenzyme Q10, Wobe-Mugos enzyme products, laetrile, crude liver or vitamin B12 injection, and gastrointestinal enzyme products. The therapy aims to restore the diseased cells in the body back to normal.
After the initial 6-12 week intensive treatment, the Gerson Therapy Program requires the cancer patient to adhere to a maintenance diet of low-salt, low-sugar, low-animal protein and high-potassium diet. All types of fresh and organic vegetables and fruits are encouraged. Tobacco, alcohol, canned, frozen, and other processed foods are discouraged. Salt and sugar are to be minimized or avoided completely - they should come from the natural foods, not from refined sources.
The detoxification of the liver and the production of thyroid hormones to regulate the immune system are crucial to cancer recovery. Liver detoxification with coffee enema is a very important procedure in Gerson Therapy. It lowers the quantity of blood serum toxins, cleaning the poison out of the fluid nourishing normal cells. Coffee enemas cause dilation of bile ducts, facilitating excretion of dead cancer cells by the liver and dialysis of toxic products from blood across the colonic wall.
The Gerson Therapy program requires dedication and discipline and hourly juicing - it simply will NOT WORK if you do not adhere to it completely, or if you cut corners and eat a few wrong foods here and there. It is ideally suited to the cancer survivor who is highly disciplined with enough energy to adhere to the strict regime.
