Enhanced Gerson Approach
The Gerson therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
Gerson Therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body’s essential defenses enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells and the body can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.
This is a powerful and natural treatment which boosts the body’s own immune system to heal: cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes.
However, the therapy does have its limits. There is no guarantee that any approach, conventional or alternative, will reverse every case of chronic disease or cancer. In some cases, the disease process is too far advanced and the immune system is too weakened to respond fully to the therapy.
Gerson therapy effectively treats a wide range of ailments because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the causes of most degenerative diseases: toxicity and nutritional deficiency.
This therapy regenerates the body, supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from about 15- 20 pounds of organically-grown fruits and vegetables daily. The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.
All of the nutrients, enxymes and minerals come from the daily organic juices and the raw and cooked solid foods, which are generously consumed as well. These substances then break down diseased tissue in the body, while coffee enemas aid in eliminating toxins from the liver.
The Gerson Therapy’s intensive detoxification regimen eliminates these toxins from the body, so that true healing can begin.
