Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s initially to treat his own migraines, which were incurable with conventional medicine. As he shared his treatment plan with others, he soon learned that it helped with many chronic illnesses, including cancer.
The Gerson Therapy treats the underlying cause of disease: toxicity and nutritional deficiency. Its premise is that by addressing these causes and returning the body chemistry to normal, it reactivates the body's ability to heal itself. The Gerson Therapy consists of a very strict organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas (for liver detoxification) and natural supplements (to replace those missing from modern food).
As with any type of full wellness support, it is important to fully research and form your own opinion on the Gerson Therapy in partnership with a healthcare professional. Below are some resource links to help you get started.
