....working with the incredible healing ability of the body. Nutrition is powerful medicine, the most powerful

Interesting talk by Dr Gerson's daughter,  a spry and vibrant 89 yrs old. She's the oldest living patient of Dr Gerson, cured by her father some 80+ yrs ago of tuberculosis using Gerson therapy. A disease at that time considered 'incurable' by 'western medicine'

Andy, I follow many of your posts, so good that you bring much needed information to the site.   I have read Gerson/therapy, it is a great healing therapy.   Continue to bring info on mammograms and especially how important DIET and nutrition are to keeping our body in a top defense mode.  There is so much evidence to make our case, but unfortunately, the medical community very lax in this area....Nutritional diet, supplement boosting also important, but we must all stay informed and not be willing to accept only what we are told, it's our body, and we must stay diligent to keep it in good order.   Hope you and family doing well, let us hear progress.    We can be a good cheering squad for one another.....Not only can we keep adding sand to our hourglass, but we can add to others as well.....blessings.

Nutrition is the way to go to heal cancer. I wouldn't recommend the coffee.

I agree.  Gerson Therapy is one of the best alternative cancer treatments. I also saw the video: "Dying to Have Known". It's amazing how cancer can be cured with natural foods.

March 8, 1959. Passing of Dr Max Gerson

After curing Albert Schweitzer, MD, Nobel Peace Prize winner, of diabetes, his wife of lung tuberculosis, and his daughter of rare skin disease, Dr Schweitzer was quoted as saying... "Iseein Dr Gerson one of the mosteminentmedicalgeniusesin the history of medicine" 

Lecture given by Dr. Gerson in Escondido, California, in 1956. Thought this was very interesting...How the therapy came to be, in his own words ---

The Real Enemy

by Robert Ringer

As I point out in my book Action! Nothing Happens Until Something Moves, the worldwide medical establishment has long been known for its vigilance in defending the status quo (see "Word to the Wise," below) against maverick truth messengers.

One of the earliest truth messengers to feel the sting of the American Medical Association's (AMA) attacks was Dr. Max Gerson, a German immigrant born October 18, 1881 in Wongrowitz, Germany. Gerson attended the Universities of Breslau, Wurzburg, Berlin, and Freiburg from 1901 to 1906. He then served as an intern at a number of hospitals and clinics throughout Germany.

In 1910, Dr. Gerson, who had suffered from severe migraine headaches for years, came across a book written by an Italian doctor who claimed that some migraine headaches could be relieved by a milk diet, while others could be relieved by a fresh-fruit-and-vegetable diet.

Gerson first tried the milk diet, but without success. He then put himself on the fruit-and-vegetable diet, with an emphasis on apples, both raw and cooked. In a short period of time, his migraines disappeared. He further experimented by adding salt and a variety of other substances to the fruits and vegetables, only to find that his migraines returned very quickly, sometimes within a half-hour.

After serving in World War I, Dr. Gerson set up practice in Bielefeld, Germany as an internist and specialist in nervous diseases. Expanding his experimentation with diet, he was successful in curing 446 out of 450 supposedly incurable cases of lupus (an autoimmune disorder characterized by skin lesions).

For his work in this area, Dr. Gerson was hopeful that he might earn the Nobel Prize for Medicine. To his disbelief, he instead was challenged by the German medical establishment and hauled into court. The charge was that he was not a specialist in skin disorders, and therefore his work in this area was in violation of the German medical code.

After having similar success with "incurable" tuberculosis, he again was challenged by the establishment medical community. Unfortunately, before he was able to prove that his natural diet therapy did, in fact, cure tuberculosis, Dr. Gerson, who was Jewish, had to flee his homeland because of the increasingly dangerous political situation.

After his escape from Germany, Dr. Gerson lived in Vienna and then moved to Ville d'Avray near Paris to become chief of staff of a sanatorium. Finally, after a short stay in England, he emigrated to the United States.

In New York, at age fifty-five, Dr. Gerson had to go to school with first and second graders to learn how to speak English, a prerequisite for his earning a medical license. (He received his license in January 1936 after passing the New York State Board examination.) After setting up practice in New York City, he continued his diet experiments with incurable arthritis and cancer patients. His success rate was astonishing even to him, and it made the medical establishment very uneasy.

On July 3, 1946, Dr. Gerson demonstrated his healing techniques before a U.S. Senate subcommittee headed by Senator Claude Pepper, bringing with him five cancer patients whom he had cured with his organic fruit-and-vegetable therapy. The AMA went berserk - to put it mildly.

In its November 16, 1946 edition, the Journal of the American Medical Association stated, "Fortunately for the American people, this presentation received little, if any, newspaper publicity." Later, in its January 8, 1949 edition, the same publication declared, "There is no scientific evidence whatsoever to indicate that modifications in the dietary intake of food or other nutritional essentials are of any specific value in the control of cancer."

The AMA pressured hospitals, laboratories, and other doctors not to do business with Dr. Gerson. This made it difficult for him to document his work, because he was prevented from bringing his patients to established medical facilities for testing.

The final blow, however, was when Dr. Gerson was invited to be a guest on a radio talk show hosted by the popular Long John Nebel. The show lasted for several hours, and the public's response was overwhelming. The result? The radio network was threatened by the AMA, and Nebel was fired the next day.

Finally, on March 8, 1959, after years of harassment from the AMA and other segments of the establishment medical community, Dr. Max Gerson, the ultimate medical messenger, died of pneumonia.

In reflecting on Dr. Gerson's work, Albert Schweitzer, the renowned doctor and humanitarian who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952 (and whose wife Gerson had cured of tuberculosis) said, "I see in him one of the most eminent medical geniuses in the history of medicine. ...Unfortunately, he could not engage in scientific research or teach; and he was greatly impeded by adverse political conditions.

"In ordinary times he would have been able to expound his ideas for many years as a professor at one of the important German universities; would have taught pupils who could carry on his research and teachings; would have found recognition and encouragement. ... All this was denied him.

"His was the hard lot of searching and working as an uprooted immigrant, to be challenged and stand as a fighter. We who knew and understood him admired him for working his way out of discouragement again and again, and for undertaking to conquer the obstacles."

Dr. Gerson was the most hated kind of messenger, because the message he delivered threatened not only the incomes of doctors, but also of hospitals, clinics, and those involved in the manufacture and sale of pharmaceuticals and surgical equipment. After all, if people ate healthy food, where would the medical community get its patients?

That's why, long after the silencing of Dr. Gerson, corporate giants in the dairy, beef, tobacco, and pharmaceutical industries, along with the American Medical Association, continued to shoot down one medical messenger after another in an effort to repress the hated, profit-killing truth.

One other --


After much reading of the Gerson therapy and life of Dr Gerson, am inclined to believe what they claim happened to him, did in fact happen. For the sake of argument, lets assume its true. What does that say about our government and medical establishment ? 

 JWith C, we're talking about one of the most dreaded scourges on the planet. We have a doctor, in our own country, helping people rid themselves of this scourge. We beat him down and treat him as if him and his therapy doesn't exist

What the hell kind of country are we living in, and what kind of people are running it  ?
